How do I begin learning about magick?


Q: How do I begin on this path learning about magick? 

A: I have been wanting to do a topic on this for a long time as I get asked this a lot. Magick doesn’t happen instantly, it involves a lot of work and study. Reading and studying, as forming any path requires quite a lot of that! It’s good not to pigeon hole yourself too early as you may end up feeling unfulfilled. You are doing the right thing- exploring many different sites and fields of study. You will find *your path* this way and it’s ok if it is different to everyone else’s!

Besides Satan and Suns, another good website is This website is packed with information on demonolatry, Satan and how to respectfully practice walking with the Demonic. Their site focuses on Demonolatry and they have many amazing books that are great for building a solid foundation for working with and connecting with demons.

~The Complete Book of Demonolatry by S. Connolly
~The Demonolatry Goetia by S. Connolly
~The Keys of Ocat by S . Connolly
~Infernal Colopatiron – S. Connolly

To name a few….

Michael Ford is another Author who published a lot of really great foundational books for those interesting in the Left Hand Path..

~ Luciferian Witchcraft,
~ Liber Hvhi
~ Adamu: Luciferian Tantra and Sex Magick
~ Beginning Luciferian Magick

Here are a couple of sites that tend to publish really good books on the left hand path, though be aware, the LHP definition encompasses HUNDREDS of paths! A good general grimoire publishing site on dark LHP for darker black magick and anti cosmic theurgical books. this is a very good broad based publisher and also offers e books of many of its publications including Jake Stratton Kent’s books. This is Mark Alan Smith’s personal publishing company where he discusses the darker aspect of Hekate in such books as Queen of Hell, The Red King and Scorpion God.  Mark Alan Smith is a genius and is incredible in his work on the Darker Paths. He is amazing to learn from. a bit pricey as grimoires go, however, their stuff is solid and they have quite a good reseller section on there.

And of course Is always a great resource for writers I personally enjoy reading like S. Connolly, Michael Ford, B Morlan, etc etc


There is a book called The Power of Concentration by Theron Q Dumont that we HIGHLY recommend to learn to harness and maintain your focus and concentration. It gives exercises, explanations and the best part for me, it’s not an overwhelming size. Using it has allowed my workings to improve, my ability to retain information has increased, and meditations are easier.   Theron Dumont is a pen name for William Walker Atkinson and a list of his complete collection of books can be found here… 

You do not have to be a *proper Black Sorcerer* to practice and make magick part of your life! Or rather should i say, if you practice magick on any level, you are *proper* 🙂 A good book that mixes neuroscience and magick is Brain Magick by Philip Farber. I really like this one- it may be worth you checking out!

Other books that make incredible reads and can help you learn about the different paths and embrace different perspectives on this path are….

~ Phantasmagoria: A Compendium Of Monsters
~ Black Magick Evocation of the Shem Ha Mephorash – G. De Laval
~Witchblood Grail by Mark Alan Smith 
~The Equinox – Aleister Crowley
~Magick Without Tears – Aleister Crowley

[i]***Really any of the books by Aleister Crowley can give you insights on his perspective but he is not for everyone. We have a lot of Crowley’s books here…  [/i]

~ Esoteric Mind Power – Vernon Howard
~ Thomas Karlsson – Qabalah, Qliphoth and Goetic Magick
~ Lemegeton: Lesser Keys of Solomon
~ The Greater and Lesser Keys of Solomon the King – Aleister Crowley and S. L. MacGregor Mathers
~ Heptameron, or Elements of Magick
~ Sacred Magick of Abramelin
~ Book 1
~ Book 2
~ Book 3
~ Agrippa: Of Occult Philosophy (3 books)
~ Agrippa: fourth book of Occult Philosophy
~ Ars Notoria
~ The Grande Grimoire
~ Grimorium Verum -Joseph H. Peterson
~ Initiation to Hermetic – Franz Bardon
~ The Book of Forbidden Knowledge: Black Magic, Superstition, Charms, and Divination – Johnson Smith &co
~ The Three Magical Books of Solomon – S.L. MacGregor Mathers
~ The Magus: A Complete System of Occult Philosophy – Francis Barrett
~ The Practice of Magical Evocation – Franz Bardon

There are so many books.  Really not all these books are going to align with what you believe.  Many of these books do not align with my beliefs but they are good to learn about to build your foundation and learn about the different elements of magick, and also to learn more about what resonates with you and the direction that you wish to go. The best way to begin is to just start reading and challenging yourself to learn as much as you can. The more you learn the more you will find what resonates with you and before you know it you will have a solid foundation of knowledge and your path will open up to you!
