Read the story of how one woman used Satanism to help battle her 10 year addiction to drugs. This uplifting story shows that anything can be done with the help of focus and determination. Abandoning the hope that the typical 12 step christian based recovery methods could help her, she found refuge and strength in Satanism allowing her to eventually find her true calling in life.
Follow her story from her humble beginnings from her life on the street where she met her husband, a life-long Satanist, who introduced Satanism to her, helping to change her life for the better. Satanism is a self-empowering path that can help anyone who is interested in putting forth the effort to care about one’s own being. She was able to shake the bonds of fear and self doubt that lead her to addiction for so many years through finding herself within the path of Satanism.
Included in this wonderful book of recovery are chapters on “Myth-busting Satanism”, dispelling the misconceptions that outsiders have about Satanism. There is a heartfelt chapter on fear versus compassion, and articles on changing your consciousness with magic. These essays were developed from her time as an editor on the Satanism Facebook page. Lilith Starr is the founder and head of the Seattle chapter of the Satanic Temple. Her wisdom and insight have helped many on their own road to recovery.
A quote from the author, Lilith Starr: “Satanism has also played a central, very personal role in my own life, allowing me to finally blossom into my full potential. The self-empowerment at the core of he philosophy gave me the inner strength I needed to beat a lifetime of addiction, including a near fatal heroin addiction.”
This book may help you to also find a new direction in life. Some of the readers said that it was “uplifting, and brutally honest”, and “very empowering and informational”. Highly rated!

An excellent book to use in your own personal research is the Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology. This book explores the dark folklores and religions of the world, with a non-christian view on demons and demonology. Some of the topics covered are demonic histories, cases of possession, demons in popular culture, and demons from religious traditions.
Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology contains hundreds of entries from a-z with suggested areas of further reading, and 80 black and white photos on demons, reaching from the past into the present. The historical backgrounds are discussed along with their powers and abilities and their roles in our lives. This book also deals with famous cases of possession, discussing various ways to protect from their harm.
As recommended by several readers, it is not the kind of book to get if you are a beginner as the topics that are covered assume that you have some basic occult knowledge to begin with. In all, it is still a good reference to have on hand for your library. I have enjoyed reading this book from time to time throughout the years.
One happy reviewer stated: “This book really goes into fantastic detail about demons, demonology, the devil, and way way more. I love this book and recommend it to anybody looking for information on this topic, this book is exquisite and very well written. I’m looking forward to reading the other books by this author and exploring all the topics they’ve written about. Overall, fantastic!”

Kerrang Radio reviewed: “The ultimate guide to the influence of Satan in the world of rock music, and all manner of devilish culture. .. Lucifer Risings is a detailed study of Satanism in popular culture. And for the layman, it’s as good a rough guide as you’re likely to find”
Gavin Baddeley states in the introduction: ”..Satanism is neither trivial nor tainted with some moral radiation that it makes it too dangerous to contemplate.

ISBN-10: 0816073155 | ISBN-13: 978-0816073153
With Ceremonial Magic and the Power of Evocation you will learn more than just the art of summoning spirits. Lisiewski, a respected author in this field, brings forth over 40 years of work in this magical field to teach you the art of evocation.
Based on Heptameron of Peter de Abano, a forgotten grimorie that has escaped the attention of modern Ceremonialists, its simplicity and power in summoning the Aerial Spirits for each day of the week is second to none. Ceremonial Magic lays bare the operation of the Heptameron. It is all here, as in no other Grimoire. In Dr. Lisiewski’s first of several books on Magic and the Occult, with introduction by Christopher Hyatt and S. Jason Black, he opens the world of magical evocation to the student in a way that assumes nothing.
More than just getting demons to do your bidding, you will learn something more about yourself along the way. A must-have for any student seeking to hone their edge on the esoteric art of evocation. One reviewer of the Ceremonial Magic and the Power of Evocation stated: “The author continually restates important concepts so that the teachings will blossom in your mind, which will allow you to integrate his teachings to improve your own individual life.”
From his wonderful introduction, “Within these pages you will find not only a system of hard-core magical practice that will enable you to succeed in evocation, but an eclectic and very effective philosophy that can be used to build your own system of general magic, just like all of those successful magicians out there – both known and unknown – have forged for themselves, and which some even write about. Systems that work for them. And now you can do the same with this text. ”
