New Satanists are often curious about how to integrate Satanism into their daily lives. The question was asked, “Are There Daily Practices in Satanism?”
As far as I know, no there are no guidelines for daily practices. That is, unless, you belong to a Satanic esoteric order that gives you daily routines that you can follow.
As far as daily routines go, you could do several things on your own, whichever you feel would benefit you the most. Having a daily practice to turn to can help you with self development, and it is a part of your spiritual journey in Satanism. Here are five practices you can explore:
Daily Reading: A useful daily practice in Satanism is spending at least an hour per day reading a book or a resource on Satanism. There is a lot to discover out there – from the history of Satanism, reading about Satanic activism or personalities in Satanism, even learning about the Satanic panic! Start doing your own research on Satanism for at least an hour a day. Find some good books on Satanism and read as much as you can. The more you learn, the more that you know. You can find some great books on Satanism at the Left Hand Path Books Blog!
Daily Prayer: Whether you start or end your day with a prayer, know that saying a prayer or just spending a few minutes in solitude with the spirit of Satan is beneficial to you in the long term. In a spiritual way, you will see over time how much closer to Satan you have become. My new book, the Spiritual Satanist Prayer Book: Infernal Reflections shows you how prayer is a useful way to live mindfully through Satanism every day.
Daily Ritual: Instead of a simple prayer, you can plan out a daily ritual. First create your altar space, and do a simple invocation of Satan into your heart. Begin your ritual by putting on some Satanically inspired music of your choice. If it speaks to your heart then it’s right for you. Light a special candle for your altar. Say your invocation or prayer, and spend a moment in the glory of Satan every day. I’s a simple moment of meditation in front of your altar. If you don’t know how to set up an altar or you are just beginning, then head over to the Spiritual Satanist site – Your Satanic Ritual Space: How To Make and Keep an Altar
Interact With Others: Find a place online where you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts on Satanism. A place where you can learn instead of spend your time fighting. Satanism is evolving but there are still a few dark corners of the web where ignorance and superiority reign supreme. Ignore those places and gravitate towards social networks where you can be yourself. If you hit a brick wall, move on. These places exist, you just have to look for them. Even if you don’t post, read as much as you can for an hour a day. Make time each day to teach what you know, and to learn from others. That’s how things progress.
Be Creative: Are you a creative person? Do you like to draw or paint? Perhaps you like to write or create music. Spending time on being creative can be a great release and it can help you to feel like a part of the Satanic current. It doesn’t matter if all you do is put your words into a private journal, you are still thinking about your experiences. Even if no one sees your Tumblr page, or reads your poetry, it’s still your own free expression of your life in Satanism. Go ahead and be creative! Let it out!
I covered similar ideas to this in another post here at the Spiritual Satanist Blog: 5 Ways to Get Closer To Satan. So as you can see there are things you can do every day to stay in the spirit of Satanism. It’s all up to you and how you want to structure your life. There are no hard rules that say that you have to do things a certain way. Your life in Satanism is what you make it, so make it well!
