– “Guide me”
– “Give me a ritual to sell a soul”
– “How can I sell my soul to Satan, I want to be rich”
– “Does Satan/demons can give me money? Teach me how to get it from them”
– “Show me how to be a satanist”
– “Help me with my problems magickally NOW”
Such requests on their own wouldn’t be so bad but usually they come with a needy, clingy and begging attitude and are supported by absolute zero knowledge…
There are so many newbies in satanism who want things like written above. It’s perfectly normal that they seek out Satan’s help. However Satan isn’t a magical genie giving power for free and solving problems. One must learn how to cope with his own shit on his own first. Taking a bit support from Satan and demons is all right but there is a huge difference between support and being completely passive and dependable on person/being who is providing help.
One type of people looks more for cooperation that will strengthen their own efforts and power they already have, other type begs for ready solutions giving nothing from itself, yet having big demands (lot of money, fame, love). First type gets the help of Satan and demons, second one is left with nothing but disappointment.
First type already is pursuing their goals and needs only little help by specific things that are hard to figure out on their own. Second type did nothing, knows nothing, have no idea how to start and where to go but wants it all (now and for free).
It’s hard to start anything having such a vague and general requests as mentioned on the beginning. Those requests are general because person who asks never even really tried to find answers on their own (they are easily accessible).
If those persons had no energy and will to be self sufficient on most basic level, then what do they want from me? They’re clearly in the wrong place. I’m not a charity that deals with people who can’t cope with most basic issues of life. I have better things to do then babysit.
I can’t be lenient to such requests because it’s a burn cause. No matter what I say, how many informations I provide, those persons just can’t function on their own and need all to be given directly and already digested. And even then most of what I give will be spilled all over. This is what I call retarded in my book and I am not tolerant of this.
Why I am writing all of this? Because in the future I could just point out to that post without waisting my time. Sure, I could just ignore persons who can’t do a thing on their own, but I think that everyone deserves a little attention and honest answer. However how many times one needs to write the same over and over?
Others strike with the same issue. Please, check out this Aleister’s Nacht article.
Satanism has a mark of quick, easy and profitable gain. This is true only in myths and movies! In reality nothing comes without effort!
