Write your own wishes for destruction on your enemy. Set up with black candle in central altar. Weather you do this alone or with people, as you chant this walk around the altar with the candle on it, counter clockwise. Chant this and then read out your destruction wishes.

Principality of Fire, I call upon the Flame to summon you.
I call on the strength of all the Dark Creatures of Nature to summon you.
Principality of Fire, hear me as I call. Rise from the coiling flames!

I summon you in the name of the Seven Plagues.
Azazel, I summon you in the name of the charred and blackened stars that reigned at your beginning!

Cthonie, rise out of the darkness of the earth.
I call you forth from the subterranean rivers of blood, from the smoke of the torment which rises forever.

In the name of every Dark Spirit that is obedient to you,
I invoke you: COME FORTH.

Read destruction wishes. Then burn them up in the candle.

Let the flame carry forth my desires.

Gather up the burned ashes in a sealed container. Bury it

Let the earth carry forth my desires.

Let it be done.


Azazel, or Cthonie, and all the other names for this same alpha-defender is both Innocence, a defender principle of the 7 fold Light and is also the Abyss – Darkness, a horrific destroyer. It is also the manifest-defender of the alpha inner principle of Justice. It is also the destroyer of anti-anima as the pushing principle on that alpha. It is also the “mate” of the Ophion as it merges with this principle. Azazel is half here and NOT behind the “double locked gate.”

Exercises with Darkness

Exercises with Darkness
by Don Webb

Uncle Setnakt would like to share with you a few exercises you can do with his favourite subject Darkness.

1. Close your eyes. Inside this Darkness, you can picture anything. Conjure up the notion of an extraterrestrial invader. One entirely of your own making. The fact you can visualize this here-to-fore nonexistent object shows that your awareness is not bound to nor constrained by the natural order. The knowledge that your stand separate from the universe is the beginning of the Left Hand Path.

2. Look at the stars. Find a grassy hill and look up at the stars on a warm, clear moonless night. Relax and let your mind soar towards the stars. That feeling of falling up into the Abyss of Stars is a predictable part of your natural self. The desire to project your psyche to its utmost limits is one of the forces that drives the Initiate along the Left Hand Path. It is why we choose role models like Set, the first historic example of the rebel against cosmic injustice.

3. Sit quietly in a darkened room. Find a place away from radio, TV, family etc. Here alone and away from a constant stream of messages telling you what to think, just relax and see where your own thoughts go. Don’t try to interfere. This may be the first time you’ve heard your own voice. When you’ve done this for a few minutes, light a candle and write down three things — the thought that surprised you the most, the desire that appeared most often in your thoughts, and the thought from somewhere else (advertising jingle etc.) that intruded the most. The next day search out the source of the unusual thought — this brings your actions in line with your godhood. Do something that distances you from the unwanted mind control (even if it’s just being aware of it and rejecting it) — this bring you closer to controlling your own mind.

4. Make a list of associations. Write down all the things that Darkness implies. Start with personal things like, “Darkness is excitement — Father Christmas brings me goodies in the dark. Darkness is the time of transformation — many times has my mind made monsters out of the pile of laundry at the foot of the bed. Darkness is the time of sexual arousal –etc.” Then add historical meanings of Darkness, “Darkness plus the sound of the bullroarer creates the sacred space for Aboriginal initiation. Darkness is the time when Vampyres are said to roam. Etc.” When you’ve made your list consider what the Prince of Darkness can mean as model for your own Initiation. Consider how these things stimulate your imagination and will.

5. Make of Night a personal symbol. It is in the nature of mankind to assign meaning to events in the meaningless natural order. They fashion constellations, omens, etc. and then bend themselves to their creations. The Black Magician can consciously assign a symbol to an operation and use that symbol for his/her own growth — and discard it when necessary. Since night is the traditional time for Satanic/Black Magical activity, you may wish to invest it with meaning. Hold a ritual that places a certain meaning in the dark of night — so that its coming will begin to Work your soul automatically. I choose, “Night is a time of rebirth.” This way, the nonego parts of mySelf begin to recharge the batteries of inspiration and magic every time the sky darkens. If I am doing some other kind of Work as part of my life work of Becoming, I can choose another meaning.

6. Seek out the Brothers of Darkness. Learning the art of magic goes a hell of a lot swifter if you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. You’ll accomplish your goals faster if you’re drawing on the experience of others. It’s a lot easier Working with people who think the way you do.

Look around for a group whose approach to Darkness is the same or very similar to yours. If the group has been around for a few years, you have the additional benefit that some of their magic has already Worked itself into the fabric of the objective universe and you have a greater magical lever to use for your own Work. Uncle Setnakt is, of course, a proud member of the Temple of Set.

7. Contemplate Darkness as a place of growth. In the soulcraft of the ancient Germanic peoples is a concept very useful to the Left Hand Path. The Sal is that part of the soul into which one evolves. It is a holder of potential, a dark vessel that cannot be filled. By using this imagery life is not a simple discovery of the self, but an active creation that may be consciously drafted. As long as their is Darkness, one can grow — there are no limits except those you consciously create. If you become aware of this Dark container within you, it can become more than a mere symbol, but an actual vessel for awareness to survive after death.

8. Contemplate Darkness as a symbol of mystery. In the Right Hand Path, white light is used as a symbol of Initiation. In the light everything is quickly revealed and the self extinguishes itself because of boredom. There are no mysteries, nothing to discover, and ultimately nothing to think about since there is a total unity between the perceiver and the perceived. In the Left Hand Path Darkness is the symbol of mystery. By accepting Darkness, you accept dynamism — you don’t know what lies within your Black Heart. And as you discover more and more; the desires from within cause you to act to bring your deepest Self into Being in the objective world. In short as you become the Self created god you must create creations. Ultimately you will begin to have a sense of the great twofold secret — one pole of which lies deep within yourSelf — the other is hidden deeply within the objective universe.

9. Seek to unleash the Darkness in others. Look for and strengthen the manifestations of Darkness in those around you. This should be done very gently and with great forethought. After you have begun to master steps 7 and 8 above consider that Darkness also resides in the other human beings around you. If you can transmit some of that excitement and potential for awareness into others — not only will you have made the world a more darkly resplendent place to live, but you will have opened up the world around you for more exciting potentials for your own growth.

Uncle Setnakt hopes you have a pleasant day.

The Greater Ritual of Baphomet

Begin with the Luciferian cross

Touching the forehead with thy left hand say:

“Above the heights of Heaven”

Touching the Stomach say:

“Below the depths of Hell”

Touching the right Shoulder say:

“Beyond the positive regions”

Touching the left Shoulder say:

“And beyond the Negative regions”

Touching the Heart say:

“Shines the lamp of Lucifer, the light of truth, The Inner black flame!”

” I am the adversary and accuser, the serpent enlightened without God”


“The core of thy being inflamed with indulgence”

Trace the Invoking Inverse Pentagram of Air and say


Turn to the Left and Trace the Invoking inverse Pentagram of Earth and Say:


Turn to the left and trace the invoking inverse pentagram of water and say:

And say with arms out stretched

“Before me the powers of SAT

Behind me the powers of TAN

On my right hand the powers of SAT

On my left hand the powers of TAN

Beneath me the powers of ShaiTan

Within me the powers!”

“The splendor and glory of Carnal magic resides within the spirit of
Shaitan, the wild beast within the heart and mind of man.

Perform the Luciferian cross as in the beginning.

A note on the meaning of ShaiTan

The Hebrew word “Shai” means a “gift and tribute”. The Hebrew word “Tan”
means “a wild beast”, this beast being the carnal nature of man.
Thus Shaitan means:

” The Gift and tribute of the wild beast”

The Adepts of Shaitan

“Those who gather in like mind for the gift and tribute of the wild
beast (the carnal nature of man)”

The word “Shai” equals to the number 310, and the word “Tan” equals to
the number 450. Thus the number 760. 760 is also the value of the words
“Qesem” which mean Magic. The word “Etzen” also adds to 760 which means
“Bone, substance and body (the carnal)” thus Shaitan also means “Carnal
Magic”. 760 also breaks down to 13, which also means “glory and

The splendor and glory of Carnal magic resides within the spirit of
Shaitan, the wild beast within the heart and mind of man.
