be proud of all of your small victories. you only snoozed your alarm twice today instead seven times. you changed out of pyjamas and into actual clothes. you found a new song that makes you want to dance. you smiled at a stranger and they smiled back. life doesn’t have to be all about getting first place every time or always being the best. a win is still a win, no matter how small.

Sins for the Left Hand Path
The concept of Sin has always been tricky to define, especially when moving away from the Right Hand Path perspective. What is sin? Are there some things that are universally condemnable? Is there a superior set of moral rules, overruling those of mortal society? Is all morality subjective, or is there a code of Ethics or something similar that applies in a more absolute way, no matter which society and subgroup asks that question? These points are difficult to prove, because there won’t be any agreement between different parties; also, a consensus can only be reached if there is no other way but to accept certain conditions for the arguments, and this has been notoriously hard to do, especially when people use argumentative ways or various philosophical schools to support or to disprove their theories.
In attempting to define what Sin is, I will first remove the concept of automatic stigma or blame from the equation. By automatic I mean the easy condemnation across the board if someone does something, without taking into account the specific circumstances for the act or one’s own mental state. Does that mean that all types of Sin are excused, or pardonable? No. Of course not. But in attempting to understand what Sin is, we must first reach an agreement on the foundation of stone of this concept. It simply means, to err. It is a faulty or wrong approach on something that is disadvantageous to the person or to someone else, or even the whole of humanity. Is it possible to avoid erring? No. In fact, it’s part of our nature to err. It’s through the process of erring that we learn and we evolve. So there should be no inherent blame in erring, when ignorant of the error or the consequences.
But here’s the thing; people often use excuses for themselves, because they don’t like being put on a bad spot. So they pretend not to see what they do, or they quickly disregard the outcomes of their actions, choosing to be superficial about many things and their consequences. Also, by being superficial they make a conscious choice to remain ignorant, either because it’s easier for them, or because they have a good excuse for doing the wrong thing. So it is safe to conclude that while ignorance as a starting stage is not a sin, choosing to remain ignorant is certainly a bad thing, leading to many errors; so we can call willful ignorance a sin.
A denial of certain obvious truths is another such sin. For example, we know that things change and that Change in fact is a major force in everyone’s life. To stubbornly hold on to disproved ideas, superstitions, problematic mentality, and so on simply because there’s a refusal to change, is not the best approach in life. Also, anything that condemns us to a life of subservience to oppressors and tyrants for no other reason other than them being some sort of appointed rulers should be equally abhorrent, similar to a life enslaved and made to do things that violate one’s essential freedoms. So whatever causes this could also be listed among the sins.
One can make such a list of things that are to be aware of and to avoid, if wanting to lead a healthy and balanced life. For those walking on the left hand path (LHP), like myself, I have attempted to compile such a list, which is by no means complete. Feel free to add whatever you deem necessary.
1. Desire to remain ignorant or naïve.
Obstinacy to gain knowledge, and having boredom or idleness towards improving oneself will certainly lead you to become one of the herd. In almost any case in life, ignorance or naivety leads to exploitation and further drama. To protect oneself, quite the opposite should be sought after. Becoming truly transformed through wisdom and Truth is always a difficult process, which requires sacrificing the mundane self which latches onto simplicity, sentimentality, and having a bubble of comfort. Reality is often harsh, and the Left Hand Path is for those who seek to be warriors in the face of adversity, as it will teach us through struggle and make us stronger. In this path, our limitations must be shed, and our minds must be fully accepting of the actual reality of things, no matter if it is painful or not. Ignorance will lead us nowhere in the end, and will keep us small and stagnant. To Transform, our weaknesses, fears, and old perspectives must die. 
2. Deliberate narrow-mindedness.
Refusing to change attitudes and perspectives when shown a better way or the truth of something. Stubbornness, rigidity /inflexibility, adherence to customs and old habits even when proved to be a fallacy or superstition.
3. Endorsing Abrahamist mentality.
Servitude (all are slaves to God), guilt-tripping (born with the original sin), forced indoctrination/induction from young age (like baptism, circumcision etc), enslavement of the mind (against scientific discoveries), inferiority of women (Bible and Q’ran statements etc), scapegoating (blaming others or Satan for their own faults and misbehaving), not taking accountability (Vatican not apologizing for former grave errors), promoting racial hatred and genocide (crusades etc), violation of sacred lands (Native Americans, etc), legitimization of torture and persecution (Inquisition), thus violating essential human rights, against contraception (thus promoting unwanted pregnancies, and diseases like HIV spreading in poor countries), using falsified documents as evidence and miracles that didn’t happen as proof of divinity or divinely appointed status, and arrogance to other spiritual people who belong to different groups.
4. Overtly merciful.
This makes others overtly dependent upon the giver, and puts the giver into a disadvantageous position, or weakening their resource pool. Mercy must be tempered by reason, and in certain cases, by severity. People tend not to take too seriously those who give too easily. Also, such actions will discourage the person in the weaker position to do anything to improve their situation, and will make them idle and dependent on others for all their lives. Tempered mercy would be to empower the weaker person, and even heal them or assist them in finding some opportunities, and then let them fly with their own wings. Another issue is that mercy and forgiveness are far too often given to the undeserving. Many may view this as being "strong" or "noble", but this actually creates more issues, and appropriate justice is therefore not delivered. By being merciful towards those who are not deserving of it, the guilty ones will feel more inclined to continue their wrong-doings. In these cases, such mercy breeds more evil into the world, as the people who are overtly merciful are too weak-willed to bring the deserving justice to the guilty, rooting out their corruption. Mercy should only be shown to those who are genuinely regretful of their mistakes, and are making an active commitment to changing themselves for the better.
5. Ingratitude when helped, or receiving help after asking.
Nobody likes this, whether they are a human being or a deity. It is good to have manners, especially when you ask for assistance. When you are given help, you should show appreciation. To say that “it would have happened anyway”, or “it was random, an accident”, is certainly the wrong thing to say. Even if the spirits don’t penalize you, they will certainly be unimpressed by you. This would also damage your credibility and the chance of assistance in the future.
6. Greed.
The insatiable desire to consume or to obtain more and more, common to anyone in a position of power. This includes any person holding sufficient money to fulfill their greed, or having enough power through civil status, religious rank, or military strength to be able to do that. But aside from the State, Corporations, Church, and Military, civilians can be greedy, to a lesser degree, in an equally damaging setting, causing misery to others and inequalities in society.
7. Envy.
This is most common to those who lack power or means to achieve their desires, and seeing others who have what they don’t. It is not exclusive to them, however, as it can be met in others with power, and yet sufficient hatred for others that would be in the same position as them, as they don’t want to share the privileges of such a position. This category lives in a state of perpetual envy; it is commonly met among millionaires (either through inheritance, investments, private enterprises and companies, and others), media and film stars, singers, and so on. Envy is not just feelings of contempt, like some may assume. It is a venomous emotion which roots itself into the heart, blinding the person from their own joys and valuable things, making them feel bitter and spiteful towards others. Envy is the cause for many lost companionships and lost opportunities, as it will strike out and pollute others who are the targets of this envy, even including the person's own gifts in life (such as friends).
8. Herd mentality.
Following fashions, trendiness and media craze, or mass scare, not because you truly came to these conclusions or you actually like it, but because you are swept by the current of the masses and don’t want to stand out in any way. Sometimes it happens due to fear of rejection, but it doesn’t stop being wrong. Feeling the need to be part of the crowd takes away your own individuality and makes you feel as if you cannot question the others. Being afraid of becoming an outcast is no excuse for this; you are either part of the issue or you stand against it. Empower yourself, understand your own values and stand up for them- not because it’s what others say is right or you feel pressured, but because your inner self tells you it is so. This is why it is so important to Know Yourself, rather than be swept away by the mundane expectations of society, the peer pressure on social media, or the dark illusions of the governments.
9. Choosing common sense over wisdom.
Another failing, closely connected with Herd Mentality; common sense is useful sometimes and it provides a sort of common ground of what’s expected in a social context, or as an understanding of certain rules and laws. However common sense shouldn’t be valued to the point where investigation and timeless truths are shunned. One must also be aware that “common sense” depends on the society involved, since some so-called rationality is actually a limited perspective. Wisdom is certainly more important and useful in the long-term than supposed logic, and it should be preferred at any opportunity.
10. Being inclusive for inclusivity’s sake; being exclusive for exclusivity’s sake.
This first part typically means that one may hate loneliness or feeling out of a group, so they conform with the group ideals even when they don’t like or agree with them. It can cause frustration, oppressive feelings, guilt and taking part in activities that the person may consider bad or immoral in some way, but they feel forced to comply nonetheless. The second part refers to someone who desperately attempts to stand out of their social group, for no other reason but being something special.
11.  Anything that obstructs clarity of vision.
Frequent heavy intoxication or misuse of drugs/alcohol. Drugs are not to be for recreational use, but for Shamanic practices. Alcohol is okay, and getting drunk should be done seldomly, in mature and responsible ways. Though addictions of all kinds are fully discouraged. Substances which cause loss of self-control and/or bodily damage should be avoided at best, since these are against the Luciferian values of clarity of mind and self-mastery. You don’t need to be temperate however, as you can become reasonably intoxicated when you please, as long as you drink responsibly. Drugs are fully discouraged unless under Shamanic supervision, or you yourself are of this expertise. This is because drugs are easily addictive, can cause dangers, and because astral parasites and tar spirits will be drawn towards the person in such a state, which can cause issues if not prepared.
12. Disrespecting the spirits.
Humanizing or objectifying the spirits is something that irritates many of them,  and this doesn’t change with making them look cute, having unwanted lust, or forcing them into relationships with humans that they didn’t ask for (spirit-shops, etc), or portraying them in a disrespectful manner (making jokes with them or mocking). Especially when working with entities or doing magick, this is a serious matter and consideration must be taken when dealing with spirits. Treating the gods or other beings as if they are meant to grant wishes is also disrespectful; the gods don’t owe you anything, as they are around as wise guides and guardians. If you want something, you can request it, but don’t act entitled or become offended if the deity or demon wants you to do some work in the process.

The Shadow Self and Shadow Work
The Shadow is the part of our psyche that we are born with, showing our darker natures. In Ancient Egypt, it was known as the Shuit. These entities do not usually look similar to us, but often appear as horrific or ugly humanoids or creatures. Throughout our lives, this Shadow grows stronger through our negative and traumatic experiences, and through us listening to their manipulations. Therefore, the Shadow is part of us, but is their own entity at the same time; an accumulation of all our pains, doubts, anger, and self-destructive desires. Furthermore, we all have two Shadows- one is this malevolent Shuit which is psychological-based, and the other is the Khaibit, our Dark Mirror. The Khaibit is not always hostile, but can also help us, and is there to make us stronger.
The Shuit Shadow seeks nothing but to always cause us more suffering, since it feeds off this and grows stronger. The only way to fight the Shadow is to stop feeding it, but this can be extremely difficult depending on how much your Shadow has grown over the years, since it entangles itself everywhere within you. In extremely rare cases, one’s Shadow may have a change of heart and choose to help their human self instead. But again, this is very rare and the vast majority of Shadows are always toxic and dangerous.
This dark part of our psyche is not ever to be underestimated. Because they are part of us, they know everything about us; every harmful detail about ourselves is known to them, even if we are currently unaware of certain things. They can use plenty of tactics to crush our hearts, but their style of doing this often depends on what your personal issues are, and what sort of Shadow archetype you have. The following are some examples of the archetypes:
Shadow Archetypes:
-The Abuser
This is typically the Shadow of someone who was hurt badly in the past, likely for many years. In response, you would become bitter and resentful, feeling betrayed by the world. Thus, your subconsciousness gradually empowered the Abuser Shadow, which in turn urges you towards the destructive tendencies of cruelty and selfishness. Deep down, you feel that everyone should hurt just as much as you have; why should the world be kinder towards the rest? This Shadow therefore convinces you that other people deserve to suffer, especially when you hit your lowest points of mindset or when you suddenly get triggered by someone. Such instances may cause you to become suddenly very angry, even to the point of making physical attacks. You may often dislike those around you, and are influenced by your Shadow to think and say scornful things towards others, especially due to your quick temper and impatience. The Abuser Shadow will have you lash out at anyone when you get triggered, even loved ones if it gets the chance. They may also tell you to try and be controlling towards others, using either manipulation or scare-tactics. Though you will always be its primary target, as it causes you to lose all the chances for happiness you could have had.
-The Director
This Shadow is cold and calculating, primarily focusing on strategic ways to bring you into a self-destructive spiral. It will quietly keep all your bad memories, thoughts, guilts, doubts, and fears organized, waiting for each perfect moment to bring them into your consciousness. It will carefully bring forward intense pessimism into your mind, tainting your perspective in order to destroy your happiness or any pleasant moment. This suddenly causes a wave of despair to wash over your vision, clouding you from your normal clarity and reasoning. This Shadow convinces you that it is always right, as they are very logical and can even provide "proof" for these things. This Shadow will strategically strip away all the things that make you happy through reasoning, showing you various examples as to why joy and hope are meaningless for you. It will distort your happy moments and even your loved ones, targeting things about them and your inner-weaknesses to try and force you into a dark, pessimistic perspective. The Director will often try to manipulate you into destroying your happiness through this way, sometimes it may even cause you to enjoy the downward spiral.
-The Freak
This Shadow is fueled by your self-hatred, often targeting your various faults and insecurities to make you feel ridiculous and humiliated. You likely felt ridiculed a lot while growing up, which helped fuel the strength of your Shadow, while also making you more likely to believe its toxic words. They love to say horrible things to you, making fun of whatever you do. And when people shun you or mock you, this Shadow is quick to point it out and make you feel even worse. The Freak will always want to make you feel like an outcast, a fool, and a nobody. "You're so weird and different from all of them, why would anyone like you or take you seriously?" it sneers. And not knowing any better, you usually listen, and feel deep shame. You beat yourself up for not being "cooler" or more perfect; nothing you do seems to be right. The Freak may also even convince you to do impulsive things that will cause you to look even more shameful, causing you to quickly regret your actions. This Shadow wants you to always hate yourself, causing you to never truly feel happy or even confident enough to go do what you want in life. 
-The Leech
This Shadow is needy, childish, selfish, and overemotional. If you experienced a lack of attention and love while growing up, these experiences would have fueled your Shadow to make it even stronger. The Leech Shadow often likes to convince you to become starving for attention, especially from those who care about you. Jealousy may be common if those people spend time with others, as The Leech will try to convince you that you're being left out. If you haven't forced yourself to become more mature over the years, The Leech may likely cause you to throw tantrums when you don't get what you desire. You become so overwhelmed with frustration that your emotions may suddenly explode in this way. Though the irony is that The Leech knows very well that if you do this, or if you demand too much attention and become jealous easily, you will likely end up driving away your companions since your behaviour will become too toxic. This will leave you stranded many times, and even more starved for attention and love. This will fester inside you, and instead of channeling it in a healthy way, the Shadow will try to make you act out again and again. 
-The Martyr
This Shadow is needlessly self-sacrificial and self-righteous. They will convince you that you are a better person if you sacrifice things for others, especially since you can handle the consequences better (supposedly). The Shadow will keep demanding that you give of yourself, claiming that you are helping the "greater good" and perhaps even saying that you are selfish if you look after your own needs. Other times, The Martyr may even tell you that your sacrifices have been pointless, and so you therefore have little purpose; if you wish to fix this, the Shadow tells you to sacrifice even more. Thus, The Martyr continues to urge you into doing more and more acts of self-sacrifice, until it finally kills you in the end. There is no nobility in this, as your life is your own, and is meant for you to evolve and learn, not to be wasted away on needless sacrifices. Of course it is noble to make a self-sacrifice sometimes, but only when it isn't overdone and when it is to help the deserving.
-The Monster
This Shadow is wrathful, stubborn, direct, and sometimes arrogant. If you experienced abuse or over-controlling parents while growing up, these experiences would have fueled your Shadow to make it even stronger. The Monster Shadow is very angry and often desiring to have complete control of their life, punishing anyone who dares come in their way. If anyone says or does anything that reminds you of past negative experiences, you may be quick to lash out (verbally or physically) to put the person in their place, even if what they did was actually well-meaning. The Monster tries to convince you that no one can truly be trusted, and that you are better off left alone. Anyone who tries to stand in your way deserves to be crushed. This Shadow may try to convince you that it is there to help and protect you, that it is the one who understands your rage and desire for power. Even if you don't consciously realize it, The Monster will come to remind you of those burning feelings during your darkened mindset. 
-The Parent
This Shadow is often highly manipulative and falsely caring. If you experienced emotional abuse, over-controlling parents, or many emotional insecurities while growing up, these experiences would have fueled your Shadow to make it even stronger. It may also often try to mimic the tactics of your abusive parent. The Parent Shadow often speaks to your subconscious in a calm and seemingly protective way, saying how much they love you and want the best for you. Because of this, it tells you that many of the things in life are very dangerous, and you are better off avoiding them. The Parent convinces you to become afraid of doing many things that are necessary in life, such as tasks at work or meeting new people. It persuades you to feel as if many things and people are a threat, and therefore cannot be trusted. "Everyone else will just hurt you and let you down, so why try making friends or doing new things? Why not just stay safe and only do what makes you feel comfortable?" it gently says. The only one The Parent wants you to trust is themself. But in the end, if you choose to listen to this Shadow, you will end up lost in life and overwhelmed. Unable to meet the demands of society and unable to feel comfortable with people, you fall into a pit of agony and wasted potential. 
-The Perfectionist
This Shadow is highly judgmental of you and demanding. If you had emotionally abusive, demanding parents who constantly told you to do better while growing up, these experiences would have fueled your Shadow to make it even stronger. The Perfectionist Shadow often brings up all your faults and things that your subconscious feels aren't being done good enough. It uses degrading words against you and torments you for not meeting your ideal standard, saying that you're nothing more than a shallow version of who you need to become. But nothing is ever good enough for this Shadow type, as they will always harass you into becoming better and better, even if the standards are impossibly high. Every mistake of yours is mocked, causing you to never truly feel good about yourself. The Perfectionist takes sadistic delight in bringing forth all your flaws, big and small, and having them haunt your mind, driving you mad as you try to meet your own expectations. But in the end, there is no way to please this Shadow, as it doesn't actually want you to become anything but an exhausted husk...burnt out from endless efforts. The Perfectionist indulges in making you filled with self-hatred and low self-esteem, forcing you to scrutinize everything you do until your mind is wrecked with stress. 
-The Sloth
This Shadow is lazy and irresponsible. If you were often spoiled and didn't have many responsibilities while growing up, these experiences would have fueled your Shadow to make it even stronger. The Sloth Shadow often speaks to your subconscious in a calm way, trying to convince you that it is okay to rest often and not do some of your tasks. You have to look after yourself, why should others keep demanding from you? This Shadow may seem protective of you, telling you that you've already been through so much hassle and are deserving of plenty of relaxation. "It's your own life, isn't it? So why not live how you want and let others do the work?" it says. But in the end, if you choose to listen to this Shadow, you will end up lost in life and overwhelmed. Unable to meet the demands of society and unable to remain truly loyal in relationships, you fall into a pit of agony, inner-weakness, and wasted potential. 
-The Indulger
This Shadow is highly impulsive and indulgent, always desiring more and more pleasures. The Indulger Shadow often speaks to your subconscious in an encouraging and tempting way, telling you how much fun it would be to do certain risky things, or how you need such things in order to be happy. The Indulger is never satisfied, and wants to make sure that you won't ever be satisfied either. Its goal is to make you so dependent on indulgences that you become addicted to them, enslaving you to these acts until you destroy yourself through them. But since you enjoy pleasures so much, it is often hard to resist, especially when your Shadow introduces another exciting new experience.
-The Submissive
This Shadow feeds off extreme insecurity and feelings of helplessness. It constantly tries to convince you that you are weak and in need of following another person, becoming subservient to them in return for safety. If you experienced any kind of abuse or many emotional insecurities while growing up, these experiences would have fueled your Shadow to make it even stronger. The Submissive Shadow often speaks to your subconscious in a demeaning way, telling you how incapable you are of facing the world and that you need someone to help you get through life. Its aim is to always make you feel weak and afraid, overwhelmed by your own freedom. So you then are influenced to seek out someone who can direct you and tell you how things are done.
-The Medusa
This Shadow is extremely envious, cold, self-centered, and spiteful. It feeds off your feelings of insecurity and bitterness, especially when you feel envy towards others. Envy is one of the most dangerous emotions, and although nearly everyone has it, those with The Medusa Shadow have it even more strongly. It is envy that seeps its way into the joys of others, it is envy that clouds one's mind from seeing the joys they already have, and it is envy that tears apart things that were meant to be gifts. It sows discord everywhere and makes one's own heart and mind vile, similar to the personality of Medusa. With this Shadow type, The Medusa whispers to your subconscious about all the things you lack and how much better others seem to have it. It constantly compares you with others, making you bitter and resentful towards many people. "Why should they be happy and not you? Don't you deserve such nice things?" it says with venomous words. These thoughts boil in your head, causing you to feel anger or even hatred towards even the innocent. But the treachery of the Shadow will likely make it so that you'll end up with far less than how you began. Envy rots everything, and if you submit to the toxic mindset of your Shadow, you will end up losing much, especially loved ones and various opportunities. 
 Basics of Shadow Work:
Shadow Work is extremely important for every person, it is essential for our well-being and self-understanding. This process of Shadow Work is a psychological assessment of ourselves, by delving deep into our subconsciousness and analyzing our various negative reactions to things. It is important to make note of your various negative emotions, self-destructive behaviours, and limitations. But remember, self-destruction comes in many forms, and we all take part in it in one way or another. When doing Shadow Work, ponder deeply on your reactions that are unnecessary or harmful (to yourself or others); ask yourself why you do them, then ask why you have that reasoning. Continue this until you get to the very root of the issue, allowing you to gradually pull it out from yourself by healing and reprogramming yourself to behave differently. For example, you may notice yourself becoming easily angered over certain things when with other people. Ask yourself why you feel that way, and you may get the answer that you feel you are being degraded or mocked, even if they don’t mean it. Ask why these reactions make you feel that way, and you may get the answer that it stems from being emotionally abused in the past, causing this toxic imprint and distrust towards others.
It is best to analyze yourself each day if you can, making sure to understand your negative reactions to everything…even if you feel you were in the right. Through doing these things, you can understand what you need to do in order to starve your Shadow, gradually shrinking them and making yourself stronger instead. You will never fully get rid of your Shadow while alive, but it will help you immensely to achieve personal freedom and wisdom. And for those who wish to pursue training in spirituality or magick, Shadow Work is one of the first things you should begin undergoing since it is impossible to rise past your limits and achieve your potential unless you defeat your Shadow first. If you do not do this, your potential and achievements in the spiritual path will be limited, and there will be many issues. So while you train in magick or spirituality, make sure to be doing Shadow Work at the same time, working relentlessly against your darker natures.
At the very end of life, when we are escorted to the Underworld, we are placed through many trials. These trials are put in place in order to help us move on, and also so we can atone for our misdeeds. These trials will be lessened if we overcome our Shadow, and restrict ourselves in life from doing harmful things to ourselves or others. During this long process in the Underworld, one of the things we must do is confront and overcome our Shadow, but in person. The Shadow will try to attack us and rip us apart, which will cause us to reform and try again until we finally succeed. But the Shadow knows all your weaknesses, and unless you know all your weaknesses as well, you will have the disadvantage. Once you succeed, your Shadow will be permanently destroyed, and you will be free. So in the meantime, while you still live, remember to always strive to understand your Shadow, and what you need to do in order to cut away your limitations.
