Happy Winter Solstice

I just wanted to take a minute to wish everyone a happy winter solstice.

For those of you who are new to Satanism, it’s important to remember that there’s nothing Christian about Christmas, except the name itself. Most of the traditions we associate with Christmas have their origins in earlier pagan winter solstice celebrations.

Even the date of December 25 was deliberately chosen by the Catholic Church to commemorate the birth of Christ because of its association with the roman sun God (Mithra) Mithras. All of this was done by the church in an attempt to convert pagans to Christianity by integrating their pagan holidays and traditions into the new Christian religion.

Hey everybody, thanks for joining me for another episode of the podcast. This episode is going to be a continuation of the podcast episode we started last week, which was the discussion about life after death. I have to be honest right from the start and tell you that this is not the most comfortable topic that I’ve ever discussed on this podcast. As a general rule I believe that people should only discuss life after death with people who they really know well and whom they trust. But since I promised to do this podcast to help others who may be struggling, I’m going to try to do my best to give you a little bit of insight into what I believe and hopefully it will help you along the way.

My beliefs are pretty simple and straight-forward as far as what I believe the afterlife is all about. I believe Satan’s Kingdom, or the Demonic Realm, is a place that is very similar to the Greek concept of the Underworld. I believe there are places of pleasure and places of punishment. And the places of pleasure are reserved for those who served the Gods honorably and the places of torment or punishment are for those who have disrespected the Gods in some way. And of course by “disrespect” I don’t mean in the Christian sense that we drank too much or we had too much sex or anything like that. I’m specifically speaking about people who deliberately broke their promises to the Gods or deliberately pretended to have contact with the Gods. And by “the Gods” I mean the Demonic spirits and Satan Himself, of course, when we’re talking on this podcast.

Now before we continue I want to be perfectly clear about something. When I say that I think Satan punishes those who have disrespected Him or have misrepresented Him in someway, I want to make it clear that that’s my opinion or my belief. It’s not verified by any material. Although some of the texts that I believe in clearly state that Satan punishes people for reasons that He alone knows and that He does have places of punishment set aside for those people. But it says that only He knows the reasons why he punishes people. So, this is just my speculation and I want to be clear about that, or my opinion, or whatever, and I don’t want anybody to think that I’m trying to speak for Satan. Just as an example I would hope that those people who pretend to channel spirits and who mislead people in Satan’s name would be punished for their deeds, but I have no absolute evidence that happens. It’s just something I believe and I hope to be true.

So what exactly am I talking about when I say “the Demonic Realm?” I’m just using that term as a generic term to make it easier for us to have a conversation, to have some common ground. What I mean by the Demonic Realm is the Spirit World, the place where Satan and His Demons reside. Satanists may choose to call this place by many names, whether it be Orcus, the Abyss, Hell, Hades, or what have you. But simply put, it’s the spiritual place, or the spiritual dimension where Demonic spirits and the dead reside that serve Them.

I believe there’s anecdotal evidence to suggest that there are certain groups of people who are granted permission from Satan to reincarnate into this life and serve Him in multiple lifetimes. What the criteria is I can’t say. I don’t really know. But I do believe there’s enough evidence to suggest that this does happen.

In my experience there are two distinct characteristics about this realm that almost seem at odds with each other. First, the realm seems to be influenced by the thoughts of the people perceiving the realm and the thoughts of the spirits or the will of the spirits in the realm. It’s constantly changing and morphing to fit the thoughts and moods of the people in the realm. But there are also distinct characteristics that stay the same regardless of who is witnessing these things. There seems to be specific landmarks that are in these locations that don’t change or don’t seem to change regardless of who sees them and how much time goes by. Now I want to be very clear about something. I don’t claim to be an expert on this subject. I’m just telling you what I’ve experienced and what I think based on what I’ve experienced.

I also said that I was going to tell you the reason why I believe this is a real place and its not just a subjective reality or a subjective universe. It’s an objective place, an objective reality. The reason I say that is because one of the places I experienced in this particular realm or in this particular state was a place that a friend of mine also experienced when she was a child although she lives 5000 miles away in a different country. That’s one of the ways that we knew we both had contact with the Demonic spirits, because we realized that we had both been to the same location even though we had never met each other. In the past I’ve also seen writings by people who seem to be describing the same place as well.

If it seems like I’m being somewhat vague about this subject it’s because I am. As I said, I don’t feel particularly comfortable talking about it. I believe it’s a very personal and very private thing. And I think it’s something that’s best left for people to explore on their own, but I feel like there’s not many places where you can get good advice on this subject, so I’m just trying to give people some insight into what I’ve experienced. You can take whatever I say however you want to honestly. I can’t tell you what to believe and I can’t tell you that what I’ve experienced is an objective reality for sure. I can just tell you that based on the writings I’ve seen from others, based on the experiences of my friends, and based on my own experiences, there does seem to be some truth to all of this. But what you will experience, I cannot say. And I hope that you’ll find this information helpful, and that it will help you along your own path.

Anyway, that’s it for today guys. I hope you enjoyed the episode, I hope it helps somebody, see ya next week.
