    To see my name set in print in the same vicinity as the authors and teachers who have taught and inspired me is perhaps the most amazing form of recognition of the value of my work. Throughout my rise, one black sorcerer has been referred to more than any other as my competition: Michael W. Ford. The name Michael W. Ford has nearly become synonymous with Luciferianism. There is no question that Michael walks with Lucifer. This text is Ford’s best, most complete primer on Luciferianism. In my own valuation of his work, though, I am much more impressed by the focus on what I call The Inner Game — how to ‘be’ magick instead of merely practicing magick; how to embody freedom instead of seeking to be free; how to become power itself. Ford underscores the fact that the freedom and power is not only presented within the ritual temple, but is integrated in every aspect of the black magician’s life and self, from the most transcendental to the most mundane—all of which are encompassed by and divulged through Apotheosis!

  • In this milestone grimoire, Michael W. Ford reveals the deepest foundations of the Adversarial Current in Luciferian philosophy. Through a process of individual liberation, and through holding the Black Flame as a powerful path of illumination, the magician experiences Apotheosis. This grimoire transcends magickal paths that a magician needs to understand, begin, and sustain to undergo Luciferian initiatory practices. Apotheosis is the primal path of knowledge and the advancement of those who have the courage and will to strive towards their individual deification and deification of the humanity itself.

    When discussing the Left Hand Path as it is today, there is no way to avoid discussing the works of Michael Ford. Prolifically, he has written about the path and specifically the Luciferian approach over the last twenty plus years, and his writings are a staple of the tradition. His impact on occultism has been extensive, lasting, and pioneering. Apotheosis is a full introduction book not only about Luciferian magick, but also Left Hand Path concepts. It appeal is as much to the experienced practitioner who wants a one-stop reference, as it is to the beginner, who is new to magick in general, but specifically the Left Hand Path.

    When Michael and Hopemarie asked me to edit and carry their new book, Apotheosis, I could sense a historic moment. Michael has emerged as a pioneer of the Apocalypse along with E.A., and now that they have allied together on this release, it gives birth to a historic union of power on the Left Hand Path that has never existed previously. Together, black magicians can overthrow human slavery and undergo self-deification individually and as a species—or, as Michael calls it, experience Apotheosis. I genuinely urge every sorcerer and witch to initiate themselves with this grimoire, not because I edited it, but because it reveals dangerous secrets of human genius necessary to ignite next-generation evolution.

    Apotheosis is the work indicated to begin in the Left Hand Path seen from the Luciferianism, striking in the Darkness to create with the sparks the Light of self-divinity. This is a new presentation and key to the works of a prolific writer, friend and teacher which I greet with happiness. As part of The Order of Phosphorus and responsible for the publication of the books of Michael W. Ford in Spanish through my own Publishing House — having thoroughly dissected his work and converted the knowledge into personal gnosis along with practice — I can testify the birth of another classic that presents Luciferianism in a new old light, an introduction to the works of Magus Akhtya that will lead you to the depths of the underworld. The doors of Arezura are opened (where the strong is tested and the weak perishes) and welcomes you to new divine possibilities in your life.

    Paul Núñez, editor of Manus Sinistra

Dear Friend,

Greetings, and welcome to my latest work, both a pinnacle and an introduction to the Path of Luciferianism. My forthcoming book, Apotheosis: The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Luciferianism & the Left-Hand Path, is a short, concise, and simplified work, built on the foundation of Luciferian philosophy.

The New Pinnacle Of Luciferian Ascent

What is Luciferian philosophy? How do you apply it? How do you self-initiate into Luciferianism? Over the years, I have concentrated beyond research and devoted myself to consistent practice of multiple traditions within Luciferianism, and my magickal obsession has been to crystallize, refine, and enhance the basis of this philosophy. What makes Luciferianism harmonious with, and parallel to, other Left-Hand Path schools of thought and traditions? What separate Luciferianism from other Left-Hand Path schools of thought and works?

Apotheosis takes an older work that had become outdated, entitled Wisdom of the Eosphoros, and renovates the entire foundation into a wholly new Luciferian philosophy. In particular, it elucidates the 11 Points of Power with in-depth explanation, examples of how to apply these 11 Points of Power, with deeper meanings behind them for the neophyte—the new seeker who is drawn to Luciferianism. It elaborates the definitions of Left-Hand Path and Right-Hand Path, and clarifies what makes an individual “Left-Hand Path.”

How To Liberate & Empower Magicians — Bringing Power To The People Without Shame And Division

To me, the focus of the Left-Hand Path is individualism; this means carefully enhancing and refining yourself magickally. Furthermore, it focuses on attaining specific types of liberation through ambitious change and forbidden knowledge that’s useful to self-empowerment. Lucifer magickally empowers your life to change into what you want, no matter what it is, no matter how you calculate what success is.

Luciferianism is adaptable and available to every individual—it knows no sex, race, nor nationality.

All The Best Breakthroughs, Insights & Discoveries From My 25+ Books Distilled Into One Masterful Guide For The ULTIMATE Initiation

This one book compresses my entire Luciferian school of thought found across my 25+ books over my three decades as an author. But it celebrates and honors more than only my school of thought, and instead it features the best breakthroughs, insights, and discoveries of many respectable Left-Hand Path tradition—in other words, it is not sectarian, but rather universal and inclusive. As you’ll see in Apotheosis, Luciferianism is not a religion with a fixed central dogma, but an evolving philosophy with a healthy worldwide community of magicians, authors, artists, and commentators.

Luciferianism is an ever-evolving lifestyle with a worldwide community of magicians, authors, artists, and commentators.

You may apply the Luciferian Ethos and theories presented to ceremonial magick traditions too. How does that work? My wife and fellow priestess, Hopemarie Ford, have formulated a Luciferian school of thought that allows you to adapt and adopt it to your preferred magickal tradition—you can perform Luciferian Magick through basically any pathworking.

What are the traits of the Luciferian? What are the commonly refined and enhanced points that really identify whether a person is of the Satanic or the Luciferian mindset? These questions constitute a core part of this book.

I have found over the years that Luciferians are the type of people who have a natural predilection for personal Ascent and the path of Adversarial power. You can’t take someone who is a dogmatic monotheist and make them view the world from a Luciferian perspective. However, there can be people in Right-Hand Path religions or paths, who, for lack of understanding or knowing, have many Luciferian traits and what we call the 11 Points of Power, but never knew it.

Luciferianism has no hierarchy or laws that police your use of magick, language, clothes, or lifestyle. It’s open and adaptable to your ascent.

Luciferianism, as you’ll see in Apotheosis, is not dogmatic. There’s no hierarchical structure or laws that limit your use of magick, language, clothes, style, etc. It’s a very open, free-spirited way of life.

Triad Of The Morning Star: The Luciferian Fire That Turns The Wheel Of Evolution

Some of the interesting points is the foundation of approaching Luciferianism with the Triad of the Morning Star. This is the act of initiation, living, applying thought as a form of magick early on, the willed thought, the willed path to self-determined initiation, or the journey of stepping upon the Left-Hand Path. Triad of the Morning Star is three specific areas that really kind of explain or crystallize some of the core aspects of initiation. Think of the Triad as a wheel, and there are three points to this, or a gear, something that is moving in a triad.

Flame #1: Liberation

The first is liberation. You see that with the Greater Church of Lucifer, my works in developing that, and also closing that to the Assembly of Light Bearers and many of my works. Liberation is identifying dogmatic or restrictive beliefs, thoughts, things that have always been with you that perhaps bug you or you identify that you want to address and overcome. It can be social conditioning, but it has to be chosen by you. It’s not something that someone else can pick for you. You have to want it. You have to be the self-starter. Liberation is breaking those chains by seeking specific knowledge or skills, attaining skills to begin to overcome that.

Now, liberation, breaking a habit, takes roughly, as we know, a month, to break habits. To create new habits takes about the same amount of time. So you have liberation, and as you’re applying, in my works, in Apotheosis, the 11 Points, you’re going to take, have a natural association with many of the Points, and you’re going to adapt them to your life and liberation over time. Don’t take them all at once, don’t try to be a new person or be what you might consider a stereotypical Luciferian, because there are none. You would take these slowly. Break old habits, create new ones in a willed, disciplined, consistent process, even when it’s annoying. Even when you really don’t want to do it and it’s this mundane, boring thing. That’s the period of time when it’s very important to see that through. Until you notice that you are thinking in this way, and that these thoughts are creating changes, often in a small way, but elaborating over time, expanding.

Flame #2: Illumination

So liberation is the first step. You get that going. Then you have illumination. That’s attaining specific types of knowledge, insight, experience, knowledge towards your short and long term goals, your self-transformation, if you will. That process, it starts to move, there’s momentum, and then apotheosis, which is attaining that state of being that you can recognize, that you can validate it, and it’s continual, and this wheel, as you go, goes on and on and grows in force and momentum with your energy of your thoughts, your words that you use, and your actions in life.

Flame #3: Apotheosis

What Apotheosis does as the ultimate beginner’s guide encourages and makes the realization that everything you do, what you put your energy into, your time, your efforts should matter to you, should be important, and should not be relatively useless and mundane. Arguing, focusing on things that don’t enhance you, and you understand that time is precious. This physical world, what you do to create your process of apotheosis in Luciferian magick will set the standard for what you become in apotheosis, what your daemon will come forth as and enhance as in your process of self-transformation.

The Universal Luciferian: From Satanism And Setian Magick To Thelema And Chaos Magick To Neo-Pagan Witchcraft… Apotheosis Transcends Black Magick Traditions

Apotheosis: The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Luciferianism & the Left-Hand Path reveals parallels between disparate paths through helpful introductions to, say, Satanism from Anton Lavey’s The Satanic Bible, to other avenues like the Temple of Set and Setian magick, to greater black magick and lesser black magick. It shows how these seemingly separate traditions reflect one another and remain in harmony with Luciferianism. Apotheosis divulges how many black magick tradition closely associate and elucidates how Luciferianism as a philosophy or praxis underlies the landscape of pathworkings — from Thelema and Chaos Magick, to Satanism and Setian Initiation of Kefer, to numerous others avenues like Neo-pagan Witchcraft and other esoteric black magicks.

The Luciferian is uniquely able to apply this philosophy and validate it. Without validating it, this work means nothing, and if you just take a work, read over it, skim it, say “Cool,” throw it on your shelf, go on to something else, well, you’re doing great injustice. Take the work and apply it and validate it for a period of time, and notice the enhancement, the illumination of that spark of divine consciousness, that higher aspect of being we call the Black Flame. Remember that your mind, your spirit uses this body as a tool to experience the world, so think of it in that way. It’s an investment.

Unholy Rituals Of Self-Illumination

Once we go from the Triad of the Morning Star, then we present what is the rite of self-illumination, formally dedicating yourself to the current upon the path of Luciferianism, the self-illumination ceremony derived from my works in the former Greater Church of Lucifer in the introductory ceremonies. This has been refined and enhanced, not to be an invocation of spirits, per se, not at all. It’s actually a self-affirmation and self-dedication with every word, every mantra, every name to paint a picture to inspire in your subconscious the Luciferian philosophy and ideals of liberation, illumination, and apotheosis.

The path of magick, the theory of ritual magick is explored in the later part of Apotheosis, how to practice basic, introductory ceremonies and rituals, what the aims are, what you should expect, what the tools represent, should you have tools, should you not have tools, how that magick is centered within your mind, your spirit, your physical body. Your willed thoughts compel change. With that said, if your imagination and your will, desire, belief is obsessive and you trust your instincts, you learn to really trust your instincts, the daemon comes forth, the true will emerges, and your able to perform ceremonial magick all in your mind. Whether the psychodrama of the ritual chamber, or witchcraft workings of the Sabbat, in the dream, Luciferian magick, in this sense, shows how you properly go forward to then take any number of my grimoires based on your interests, apply the ceremonies, workings, to attain real results, validate your experiences, notice your change, and then perhaps explore other paths of Left-Hand Path practice in harmony with Luciferian foundations.

I Have Allied With Become A Living God In The Spirit Of Unity & Ascent

Koetting, Timothy, Asenath Mason, Edgar Kerval, and more in the spirit of a highly open, non-dogmatic cooperation. They respect my individuality and support my freedom to espouse a unique Luciferian school of thought, regardless of whether it fully agrees with theirs.

Become A Living God will release this high-powered book in a limited edition leather & cloth hardback version, and eventually I will carry it too myself with Succubus Productions Publishing.

This book becomes live May 7, so please watch for it, and I look forward to sharing new videos to ignite your Apotheosis. Thank you.

By E.A. Koetting | Peer Review

Having the opportunity to work alongside my living heroes, to see my name set in print in the same vicinity as the authors and teachers who have taught and inspired me is perhaps the most amazing form of recognition of the value of my work. I am humbled by the chance to work with and publish alongside modern Adepts like Asenath Mason, Edgar Kerval, Bill Duvendack, S. Connolly, and so many others whose works have helped me formulate my own ideas and discover new ways of being and doing from their original concepts. Throughout my rise, though, one black sorcerer has been referred to more than any other as my competition: Michael W. Ford.

“If there is one author you need to beat,” my publishers tried coaching me, “It’s Michael Ford.”

Ford is a few years my elder, both through biology and bibliography. As I worked to build my name and to build trust with an audience that I struggled to expand, for the first few years I secretly felt like I was trying to catch up to Michael Ford but that I was always just a few steps behind him. For the sake of my own maturation, magickally and professionally, I eventually had to let go of him as my imaginary big brother and start viewing my work as equal and parallel to his, so that it hopefully could evolve to be just that.

I can’t say whether or not I ever caught up to Michael, as his magickal and professional evolution has been in forward motion and gaining momentum all along, and that my Ascent has benefitted from his work, and continues to do so.

Orlee Stewart | Peer Review

Apotheosis enlightens readers through the 11 Luciferian points of power in a fashion wherein they can be applied to daily life in exercise for our personal illuminations through the Trinity of the Morning Star. This book teaches all how to live life in its fullest power as the Adversary. Along with detailed information is gorgeous artwork which channels the essence of the magical formulae within the tome as well as magical diagrams to utilize within ceremony. Apotheosis is perfect for both those who engage in ritual and also those who work purely through the magick of our minds. Through the process designed, we can apply the science of magick into daily life. This is beneficial to the reader through principals are not based on belief systems alone but rather on manifested proof through experimentation. Reading this book will reveal how to survive in our world by freeing ourselves from the restrictions of our minds and instructions on the art of balancing the carnal and spiritual natures of humanity. I enjoyed the book’s nature of self empowerment through putting yourself first, even before the spirits you may work with to become the god of your reality as preservation as essential to the nature of an existence of opulence.

Such necessary knowledge is combined therein with the importance of also caring about the world around us in order to create something new. The benefits of conquering battles yet determining what is worth one’s time are also elaborated upon in order to help the individual’s evolution. Apotheosis also protects the magician through explaining dangers of helping those who do not wish to help themselves and deciphering the propaganda of religious enslavement texts. I also resonated with the Iconoclastic elaborations on the concepts of heaven and hell whilst also validating the virtues of personal inspiration from mythology. The Luciferian philosophies of life as explained within and the focus on our inner selves to discover truth also will spark the creative process within all who read the text. Apotheosis helped me realize patterns within myself that I failed to notice, and once released, provided the way for my energy as a magician to rise higher than ever before. Paying attention to the potentially destructive tendencies which we have been conditioned into in order to grow is a fabulous point which the book elaborates upon which is essential in conjunction with walking the Left Hand Path. The power in creating reality and the mental tools to create your own reality are also wonderfully instructed. I particularly resonated with the text’s connection to obtaining one’s inner demon through the Luciferian current and the correlation to principals of Satanic and Thelemic philosophy from which my magical path sprung forth. I also was inspired by the book’s revelations into the traditional magical weapons through a Luciferian translation of powers. This book will help anyone to enkindle and raise their Black Flame.

Bill Duvendack | Peer Review

When discussing the Left Hand Path as it is today, there is no way to avoid discussing the works of Michael Ford. Prolifically, he has written about the path and specifically the Luciferian approach over the last twenty plus years, and his writings are a staple of the tradition. His impact on occultism has been extensive, lasting, and pioneering. However, as authors know, there does come a point when you have written so much on what you want to write about, that there seems to be nothing left to cover. It is at that moment that the call of the siren occurs from stygian wastes, inspiring us to crash upon the rocks of the unknown that lurks just out of our perception, like icebergs on a new moon night. In this case, answering the siren’s call has created Apotheosis.

Often times as we spiritually grow, we find ourselves circling back to earlier times, and this is the case here. Apotheosis is a full introduction book not only about Luciferian magick, but also Left Hand Path concepts. It doesn’t stop there though, as it also includes basic fundamentals of magick in general. Because of these three strong points, its appeal is as much to the experienced practitioner who wants a one-stop reference, as it does to the beginner, who is new to magick in general, but specifically the Left Hand Path. Don’t take my word for it though, pick up a copy and see for yourself!
