What books do I start with for studying luciferianism?

by Michael Ford on September 20, 2011

Luciferianism is firstly a philosophical basis for actualizing potential, gaining insight and self-determined short and long-term goals. Once the philosophical foundation (which is a magickial act itself) is united with the mind of the individual, the alchemical process of what is called "The Triad of the Morning Star" (Liberation, Illumination, Apotheosis) compels inner and outer change. To successfully establish this foundation, you must have the proper tools and appropriate knowledge available for your goals.

Michael W. Ford's publications are both records of a journey and a gateway into the divine and infernal; recognizing your mind-body-spirit as a temple for which your personal Daemon may reside and flourish. Actualizing your will to transform and shape your mind is paramount, while directing your energies towards compelling change in the world you live in.

In many titles, the first few chapters of Mr. Ford's publications present the philosophy, theory and practice of Luciferianism from a rational and the mytho-poetic unity of the spirit and flesh. Each grimoire explores different levels and knowledge of exploration, yet has a solid core foundation of Luciferian Philosophy. 

Beginning titles for the inquiring Luciferian:

Apotheosis - The New Pinnacle Of Luciferian Ascent What is Luciferian philosophy

How do you apply it? How do you self-initiate into Luciferianism? What makes Luciferianism harmonious with, and parallel to, other Left-Hand Path schools of thought and traditions? Apotheosis 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. Apotheosis elaborates the definitions of Left-Hand Path and Right-Hand Path, and clarifies what makes an individual “Left-Hand Path.”

Sebitti guides the Kassapu (warlock or sorcerer) in the most effective methods of understanding and invoking Deific Masks (gods, demons & spirits) of ancient Mesopotamia. From ancient Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian and Neo-Assyrian tablets and temple invocations, Michael W. Ford presents a modern approach to these primal powers inherent in nature and humanity. Luciferians embrace sorcery and primal forces, inherent within nature and the self in order to expand consciousness and personal power. The theory and practice of ancient sorcery is outlined for the modern practitioner and is presented to awaken the desires of our current time. Today we balance spiritual symbolism and objective reason to fuel our transformation towards the power and potential as individuals. Presented first is the modern Luciferian philosophical foundation, followed by a study of the ancient practice of Sorcery in Mesopotamia.  
The Sebitti unveils demonology and spells invoking primal forces and is beautifully illustrated by Kitti Solymosi with Nestor Avalos. It is an authentic presentation of the sigils and cuneiform symbols represented in ancient Mesopotamia. This grimoire is a gateway into the ancient cults of dark power guided by the Black Flame.

Utilizing the basis of his teachings, Ford structures this outline of magical practices and rites (including the Ankh-Ka-Djed Ceremony) with the mythology and history of the Egyptian Pantheons and the Adversary, Set the Neter (God or Divine Principle) who is the God of Storms, War, the Desert and aspects of Darkness. The deep study of the divine 'daemonic' feminine principles of Isis (Aset) and Sekhmet are essential to the balance of the Adversary.
