Cleansing Ritual

 Satanism is a group of ideological and philosophical beliefs based on Satan, a figure of the devil in Christian belief who is also called Lucifer. Traditionally thought of as the worship or veneration of Satan and the subject of accusations by various Christian groups toward perceived ideological opponents through the centuries, actually self-identified Satanism is recent. The contemporary religious practice of Satanism began with the founding of the atheistic Church of Satan by Anton LaVey in the United States in 1966. Artists and entertainers have also used The concept of Satan for symbolic expression. Sharing "historical connections and family resemblances" and sometimes overlapping with Satanism is paganism, ceremonial magic, and "other dark entities such as Set, Lilith, Hecate, and Chaos," from the occult and the ‘Left Hand Path milieu.

Definitions of Satanism are complicated by the fact that they include legends of figures and groups alleged to have committed horrible crimes but who do not appear to have existed on the one hand, and figures such as Romantic Satanists, hellfire clubs and modern Satanists with very different views on who or what Satan was and represented.

The object was purchased in a Value Village between 2007 and 2010. The goal was to teach about satanism. Many other items were purchased then, like a set of Tarot cards that have nothing to do in "principle" with the devil.

Possessing humans, demons can also attach themselves to places, vehicles, and any other object. Attachment, sometimes called infestation, is often the early stage of possession. When I purchased this cross, no history came with it; who had it, what was it used for, and why was it found at Value Village?

Cleansing is by using sage to drive the demon away; I use it due to a lot of bad luck that happened through the years but never link them to the devil, especially since the house is full of crosses, Catholic objects and, of course, the Shrine. I use frankincense for the cleansing.

Note: The satanic cross is hidden in the house as the Right Revd. Marie will not be allowed to have it around us, nor an Ouija board.
