Creeds, beliefs and self-programming.


Sep 29, 2018
In my last article, I looked at the issues of paradigms and thinking, as well as the connection of these concepts with how we manifest reality. The mental plane, in a broad sense, is our beliefs and programming of ourselves. In The Joy of Satan, great emphasis is placed on deprogramming the mind from xistian and materialistic concepts, because as long as we are confident in something inside, our actions contrary to this belief will not have power.

It really looks like a map. Having a map that doesn't correspond to the terrain you're walking through (meaning materialism/christianity) - you only get very random achievements based mainly on your ability to walk and see things with your own eyes during your journey. However, by acquiring and installing a real spiritual map for yourself, you can predict your movement and plan ahead where you will end up, since now the plan and reality are aimed at the same thing.

Your deepest expectations, henceforth I will call this credo for pleasure, are in fact always realized. This does not happen at the level of superficial beliefs and self-deception. At the credo level, a person is ALWAYS honest with himself. You can repeat in the mirror 10 hours a day - I’m an athlete, but be a fat ass who can’t do a pull-up more than once. Your level of credo in this sense is the awareness that your words have no power because there are no actions behind them. In this sense, your credo will actually be “I’m deceiving myself because I don’t have the strength to pull myself together and play sports.” The deep-seated belief behind such self-deception will be something similar.

As spiritual Satanists, we have the energy to make our thoughts come true. The right desire and affirmation are very important. Programmed energy can perform both external and internal work. However, working with a credo requires extreme honesty with yourself. The difference between a person who convinces others and himself that he is talented, and one who knows this and what is his credo is colossal. In the first case, it would sound like “I will prove to you that I matter,” implying that this may not happen. The second option would be something like "I know what I'm worth and you can see it for yourself."

Internal deprogramming at the credo level is the actual replacement of some attitudes with others. This does not happen as a division and an attempt to impose on one’s consciousness that option No. 2 is now a priority for him. In this case, a dichotomy is created and the strength of new beliefs is very weak.

Using a computer analogy, you should have more than two files: “old unnecessary beliefs that I want to get rid of” and “my new cool beliefs that I like.” And replacing and overwriting one file with another. The old you truly “disappears” and the reality of the new beliefs begins to work.

As an example, let's look at a few disturbing topics from a credo perspective.

Case №1, someone has a desire to believe in magic, but all the evidence that he has is extremely unconvincing or can be explained by something else. This often happens when people have not deprogrammed themselves enough, and their strength has not yet reached the level of obvious achievements. In this case, a person’s credo in relation to magic may be as follows: “I will believe it if I see it.” At the level of the internal work of consciousness, such a belief forms a stable habit of “not noticing” some discrepancies and obvious results of magic. Don’t take people’s word for it and look for a suitable “material” explanation for any strange coincidences. Swapping the syllables in this credo can create an amazing effect; “I will see when I believe” removes the block of internal mistrust of one’s own mind in relation to the world and its manifestations. The person in this case opens up to the results of his own internal process. It is obvious that two accepted simultaneous beliefs on one issue cannot exist at the same time, which exclude each other.

Case №2, someone has beliefs with the opposite sex that exist as a self-fulfilling prophecy in matters of personal life. A person’s credo in this case can be stable: “Nobody likes me” or “I’m not beautiful and I can’t please anyone.” In this case, a person will obviously avoid all manifestations of the opposite and notice only cases when his credo comes true in relation to other people towards him. In this case, working with a credo as an inversion will not work, since you will not be able to convince yourself of something that is a deception. “Everyone likes me” is generally an extremely unrealistic thing. Instead, you can try something like "Those who are interested in me like me."

Working with a creed is about rewiring all the stupid beliefs about you and the universe in favor of extreme honesty and truth. If you just want to program yourself to become a superman at the level of beliefs, you will simply be that same Instagram blogger who “always does well” on camera, but their life is only an example of self-deception and dust in the eyes of others. You must live up to your beliefs and embody them through your actions. In other words, eat what you cook yourself.

The easiest way to look at this is to ask the question: Which of my beliefs are getting in the way and stopping me? Do some self-reflection work. Do you like what is in your head on many issues? Let's say if you are convinced that you do not have the opportunity to achieve something you want, your energy in this direction is wasted. You can even do magic on these things, but inside you still continue to struggle with it. For simplicity, you can divide the questions into 12 categories corresponding to the houses of astrology.

1. Myself, my ego and self-perception. Who am I, who do I think I am? How do others see me in my understanding?
2. Health, money. Attitude to earnings? Do I consider myself a sick and weak person or vice versa?
3. Information and communication. Do I like my social circle? Am I getting the information I need?
4. Family and home. How do I feel about my parents? My family?
5. Creativity and pleasure. Do I know how to relax, do I not feel guilty about my vacation? I am a creative person?
6. Work and daily tasks. Is my daily activity helping me achieve my goals or is it just an escape from myself?
7. Partner and other people. Am I a good and worthy person towards my partner? My true attitude towards other people in my life?
8. Attitude to sex and the beyond. How do I feel about myself as a lover? Am I afraid of transformations in my own life?
9. Faith and principles. What principles and beliefs are holding me back?
10. Self-realization and achievements. What do I want to achieve? Are these really my goals or those imposed on me by someone?
11. Attitude towards friends and this place. Do I have close friends and how do I relate to them? Am I realizing something more global than myself? Am I a good or bad friend?
12. Spirituality. Am I in touch with my soul?

This is not a psychological questionnaire. The questions may be different, and are more aimed specifically at identifying various harmful attitudes and beliefs. By honestly answering such things to yourself, sooner or later you will be able to stumble upon something that you don’t like or that clearly seems useless and outdated. These beliefs need to be written down and analyzed further. Are they connected with some other similar beliefs? It may turn out that the answer to some small question will raise from your mind a whole pack of painful and bad creeds regarding some deep-seated topics. It is usually important to look at undeveloped/weak/afflicted houses in your natal chart to find the most likely location of these bad creeds. By working with yourself, you will eventually completely overcome these influences.

As new creeds to replace those you don't like, I have found the Roman three-letter mottos to be of great help. It's amazing how people have previously created useful spiritual things that can help us all after so many years. I will list below a few of them that seemed to me the most noble and powerful.

Labor omnia vincit - Work conquers all
Viam supervadet vadens - The road will be mastered by those who walk
Veni, vidi, vici - I came, I saw, I conquered
Suis quaeque temporibus - Everything has its time
Silentium est aurum - Silence is gold
Scientia potentia est - Knowledge is power
Margaritas ante porcos - Margaritas before pigs
E pluribus unum - Out of many, one
Cognata vocabula rebus - Words match actions
Debes, ergo potes - Must, then you can.
Aquila non captat muscas - Literally, the eagle does not eat musca. It means that a noble person does not get involved in useless fuss.
Аurum nostrum non est aurum vulgi - Our gold is not the gold of the crowd.

Each of the mottos can help replace some of your creeds. A thoughtful study of the foundations laid down in ancient civilization reveals a truly wise approach to life. There is no need to try with all your might to “correct yourself into a new version of yourself in accordance with a new credo”, in fact, the belief that there is something wrong with you and you are “underdeveloped” at the level of character should be the result of introspection and a clear choice of beliefs that bother you. In other words, correcting your creed should not be part of the credo that you need constant correction.

Reprogramming beliefs is not something far-fetched, it should not create a mess of different meanings and desires in your head, as if you are playing an RPG game and want to redo your character build. It's more like cutting your own consciousness into a more polished form, you're looking for what to remove, not what to add. Each next correct step brings you closer to a masterpiece.
