Treasurer. High Priest
Enchantment, Angelomancy, Djinnomancy
Baptized into the Greek Orthodox church at birth, I was active in religious circles my entire childhood at the behest of my parents. Sunday School, religious private school, hours upon hours of religious Bible study and memorization was my life. Even at this age, Christian guilt weighed so heavy on me that I felt guilty just reading the astrology section of the newspaper. At 13, my religion teacher spoke fervently of hellfire and damnation. The same time, the pastor of the church where I attended school denied the existence of hell and Lucifer entirely.
Witnessing this religious disagreement brought into question much of what I had studied and been exposed to – who would know better than a pastor about the faith? I questioned, I read, and I lost my faith, like many before me. Unlike others, I never saw angels, demons or the like. All I had was research and study, and that was all in question. I was fervent in my devotion, desperate to find “Truth.” Even at a young age, I read Edward Cayce, and other mediums who claimed to see Heaven and understand the universe – who could do what I could not.
In 1995 I declared myself a Gnostic. The world was imperfect, and any semblance of salvation could be the truth. I devoted myself to both God and Goddess, as I expected the gender duality of humankind to be represented spiritually as well. I delved into magical work, focusing on devotional writing as well as candle magic and the like to understand and make my will happen in reality. During this time I worked heavily with astrology and it being a long forbidden love of mine – writing and calculating charts for myself and others.
In the early 2000’s, I was introduced to lucid dreaming and astral travel. People I met on the physical plane described vivid dreams I had as a child to me from their perspective. It was during this time I focused heavily on astral travel and meditations to connect to the universe, to spirits, to communicate with the unseen around me. Additionally, I attended a local course focusing on the historical Jesus, which put much of religion into true focus for me. At the local college I then attended dozens of courses covering every religion historically and critically, opening my eyes to the real truth that covered them.
It was during these courses that I discovered the Djinn, and instantly felt a connection to them. The concepts of entities unlike man but still given free will like man around us fascinated me. Not demons, but born of smokeless flame, I embraced Djinn for their humor, their loyalty and their knowledge through experience. Just as humans, there are those that are wicked and those that are not, the right one must be found to have a true friend. It was not until I traveled to Saudi Arabia, in 2008, that I felt the presence of truly wicked Djinn and employed traditional Arabian magic to disperse them as needed. It was the first time in my life I felt the presence of something sinister around me, as if my senses were awakening.
In 2010 I fully embraced binding Djinn to objects, much like in the traditional stories of Aladdin and the lamp, but found it was a preferential point for them as it eased the transition from our plain to theirs, like a telephone line. Entities and spirits of all sorts could be worked with in such a manner. It was during this time that I begun spell work with objects, enchanting items to bring luck, fortune or a personal spirit that could help one with a task or as a companion.
In 2010 I summoned my first angel into full manifestation, taking on the mantle of angelic ascent. Some may ask how a Luciferian can follow an angelic ascent, but one cannot forget that Lucifer was once the highest of all angels and stood in the presence of god. He had the greatest understanding of god above all, and rebelled. To truly understand the universe, one must be ready to bite into the forbidden fruit and fall.
