Who Am I? What’s the Point?

I’d like to take a moment to discuss who I am, why I’m setting up this blog, and what I hope to accomplish with it.

I’m Frater Lucath, a male in his early 30s who practices LHP magick. I’ve explored a wide variety of magickal systems, but I resonate the most with chaos magick and demonology. I’ve been practicing Draconian Magick as a solitary practitioner since mid 2018.

But I have been interested in and exploring the occult since I was a child. I came across some books about witchcraft, Wicca, and Aleister Crowley when I was 11 or 12 years old. I’d love to say that I explored it my whole life, but I was an on again, off again practitioner for most of my life.

I practiced a bit in my teens, working mostly with Hecate. But I also dabbled a bit with the Goetia and learned most of what I knew about evocation from that book. I was able to feel my evocations of Hecate and received some of the things I asked her for. But per the Goetia, I didn’t have much success with that method of evocation… I cursed someone who got sick, but it’s hard to say if the curse caused the sickness. Otherwise, I don’t think I made much contact with the spirits of the Goetia.

In my first apartment, my roommate and I played with the Ouija Board and had some cocaine-fueled success with it, but not much. In the next place I lived, I was excited to have a space to practice magick and began to setup a temple in a tiny room in the basement. My partying roommate allowed his friends to desecrate and destroy my temple before I really got to use it.

This triggered me to stop practicing and I fell into atheism pretty hard. I studied many things in college, but found a deep love for philosophy. This fueled my atheism, and it wasn’t until I was reacquainted with chaos magick through a personal development coach I was studying with. He swore by chaos magick as a way to deepen personal growth. I began to practice it as an atheistic practitioner until about mid-2016.

As stupid as it sounds in hindsight, some weird combination of finding EA Koetting’s material and the election of Trump made me decide to say “screw it!”, and finally really give ritual magick a go. I decided to just practice it and see what happens.

My first successful evocation in this period of my life was with Raziel, the archangel. He gave me so much information, it was hard to write it all down and frankly, I’m STILL learning what it was that he was talking about. He also encouraged me to work with Lilith and a few demons. So, I did. And I’ve never looked back.

Well, enough about me.

I started this blog to have a place to discuss my thoughts, my gnosis, my experiences, my t-shirts, and to talk about the books that I have read and am reading and the video or audio courses I pick up. I’ve read a fair bit of interesting material, but also some crap not really worth the paper (or digital paper, ha!) it was printed on. And likewise with occult video or audio courses.

I hope to write on this blog at least once a week for the foreseeable future.

I hope that you find this blog interesting and come back to experience more. Share it with your occultist friends if you’re so inclined!
