Lilith

According to Hebrew legend Lilith was Adam’s first wife, the one created from the same clay, and likely the one who picked the apple. But it wasn’t an apple that Lilith tempted Adam with; it was SEX. This was the forbidden fruit the Abrahamic God Yahweh didn’t want them to partake in--this because it held the knowledge of good and evil, or in plain terms: sex with a consort, and all the chaos--good and bad--that can bring.

Of course, we can blame Satan in the form of the serpent—classic phallus symbol—for releasing Her inner passion and desire, if we want. But Lilith propositioned Adam. She never claimed the devil made her do it; some legends even say she was the serpent11

No, Her hunger was the irresistible welling up of the Lilith Spirit in Her and all women, no matter how deep it may be buried, or how blatant and overt.

The chaos arose almost immediately. For while Lilith and Adam were created as equals Adam insisted on sexual dominance, always having his way when they mated.1 But Lilith wanted sexual equality and refused to be subordinate. This caused such conflict that She left Eden—the first divorced woman, as it were--to live with Eblis (later associated with Samael/Lucifer) the Prince of Demons where She became Queen of the Demonessess and Queen of the Night. Like so many women who have to leave home to fulfill their desires, She is maligned in Hebrew tradition that maintains that She not only wanted equality but sexual dominance. For this reason, She is considered sexually deviant, permissive, and dangerously seductive--even fatally so—and Yahweh was wise to forbid unleashing this passion and desire upon the world.

After Lilith left, Adam complained to Yahweh/Jehovah that the women He had created had abandoned him. Yahweh then took Adam's baculum ( human penis bone) not his rib (as was later mistranslated2) and created Eve. Perhaps Yahweh chose the baculum so that men--Adam means man in Hebrew--would know it is woman who holds the key to his erection and not so easily dismissed.

The legend is a metaphor for the eternal battle of the sexes in which the phallocentric Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Islam, Christianity) seek to diminish a woman's overt sexuality.

Lilith is a demoness of fire and passion and the basis for other demonessess or succubae persona.

Lilith Lily

The Hebrew legend draws from much earlier sources dating back to ancient Sumeria. While less has survived from the era, in the Akkadian language of Assyria and Babylonia the terms lili and līlītu mean spirits. But not just any spirit, the term lili or lilitu derives from the term lily, an often powerfully sweet smelling flower whose intoxicating fragrance comes on the night breeze--another description of Lilith is spirit on the wind. The scent and shape of the lily is reminiscent of the aroused vagina.

From the Gilgamesh cycle, we find in Inanna's (Ishtar) garden in Uruk a huluppu tree (willow) inhabited by a serpent, a fire-breathing Zu or Anzu bird, and a ki-sikil-lil-la-ke (Lilith spirit). Gilgamesh kills the serpent, the Zu bird flies off and the ki-sikil-lil-la-ke destroys her home and flies off to the forest. In this metaphor we once again see a sexually aggressive female spirit purged by a male in favor of the earth mother figure of Inanna/Ishtar.

Inanna

However, the tree was Inanna's. She wished to make a throne from its wood since Inanna is also the goddess of justice and political power.The difference in the Sumerian legend is that Inanna/Ishtar is also a highly sexed woman, goddess of lust, but primarily a mother symbol. The Zu bird and the serpent represent Lilith's overt sexuality which must be sacrificed to the social order. Here again we see the paradox between a woman's sexuality and her role as progenitor.

Shiksa Blond Demoness

Lilith's other aspect is the "murderer of children" whom she strangles with a strand of her blonde hair. Apparently, Lilith was a long haired blonde in the Hebrew legend, to this day, associated with highly sexed women: shiksas.3

This aspect of the legend also relates to the dichotomy of women as sexual creatures rather than child-bearers: the mother and the whore paradox. (Perhaps even indicating induced abortion of unwanted children or an ancient form of IUD4, as one could hardly strangle a baby with a stand of hair.)

This is why Lilith is often associated with the dark path.5 However, this is mainly a reference to the Hebrew version of the story where She is vilified as an evil demoness coming in the night to rob men of their precious bodily fluids and make them a slave to Her desire. In addition, Lilith's breast milk is an intoxicant. If a man sucks Her his seed would transmute so he sired only demons. How one views Lilith depends largely on how one views sex and women in general. Are women sexual beings entitled to uninhibited fulfillment of their desires or are they chaste mothers useful only to increase a man's wealth of sons. Both.

Lilith Women

Today we can view Lilith as a metaphor for explicit female sexuality denied by the social order or even the transcendent female spirit of the divine mystery that lies ever present beyond our physical realm. Women may wish to channel Her passionate energy to fulfill their sexuality. Lilith is often invoked as a cure for repressed sexuality and frigidity. Men may wish to summon Lilith as a succubus to enhance their sexuality beyond the limits of human passion. Lilith Succubus Both of these invocations should be practiced with caution since Lilith is also the Harbinger of Chaos. This may be the chaos of madness or the Chaos of Creation.

However, the essential distinction that separates Chaos from Creation is the experience of the divine Male/Female polarities of our partners as ecstatic energy beings: the Lilith Spirit and the Spirit of the Horned God blazing together—not organic sex toys. This is the grave mistake Adam made and lost Lilith. As a conciliation prize he got Eve who wore a fig leaf to cover her sex and ushered in millennium of women as objects to be used for man’s pleasure and procreation. That time is at an end.

Now that you know a bit about Lilith you may want to invoke Her in your workings. First, it is important to understand that invoking Lilith is a very personal and intensely intimate experience. The most powerful invocations are always those you create yourself. That said, here is a sample to get you started:

Invocation and sexual dedication to the Dark Goddess Lilith.

Lilith is first and foremost about sexual passion. Here you will masturbate to a sustained orgasm as the molten core of your invocation.6

How you attain orgasm will differ from person to person but a dark room is preferred. Gather anything you require as well as incense of a sweet nature. A fragrant blooming lily is even better.

Start by performing an adoration. Here is an Italian prayer that I find very beautiful. But here again, you can perform an adoration to Lilith in any way you choose.



-- Unknown Italian Author




At first, you may wish to invoke the Lilith Spirit by yourself before you take a lover.

Just speak the following dedication as you begin to attain your orgasmic state:


Oh Lilith, Dark Goddess, hear my call.

From the dawn of creation you have liberated yourself from your shackles to arise in your magnificent passion. Lilith I invoke you. Tonight I dedicate my love to you. Ascend with me! I will feel your primal energy, so deep and penetrating reverberating throughout my being.

Touch my very soul Lilith, touch me how I need to be touched, kiss me as I need to be kissed. Make my body quiver in your divine presence. Take my eternal spirit to the realm of transcendent passion. I beg you, carry me to the limits of ecstasy and unbridled lust. Do this with me, Lilith and I will dedicate every instant of ecstatic joy to you and you will drink of me and become drunk with lust. Hear me Lilith, hear me!

If this doesn't do it you may want to try some Lilith Erotica: Possessed





Lilith Invocation

That's all the ritual you will need, but you can embellish the spell any way you please. Now just let it happen with your earthbound self left far below and only your orgiastic body stoking the flames of your blazing Lilith Spirit that matters.

The longer you remain in your orgasmic state the greater will be your experience of Lilith and the higher She will take you. You may lengthen your orgasm by a technique wherein you approach release but back off only to approach again and again until you can maintain an orgasmic state nearly as powerful as full release. When you reach your finale it will be far stronger the longer you have held on. While this is simply stated it takes practice with many slips over the edge ending your journey too soon.

Your goal is to attain the highest ecstatic state for as long as possible. During this joyous time you may wish to inflame Lilith with mantras and incantations. Here are a few you may wish to use

Marag Ama Lilith Rimok Samalo Naamaah 7

KI-SI-KIL-LIL-LA-KE 8

Femme Fatale

Once you are able to invoke Lilith reliably women may wish to use Her power to become a succubus and visit men in their sleep. This advanced technique can be used for the great pleasure of possessing men or for summoning them to you. However, men summoned in this way may not be suitable for relationships since their desire for you is purely sexual and really the desire for Lilith.





1. According to the Alphabet of Ben Sirach a Rabbinic text written between 100 and 700AD, Lilith says, "I will not lie below you." Lilith Babylonian GoddessTo which Adam replies, " I will not lie below you since you are fit for being below me and I for being above you." Lilith replies in a rage, "The two of us are equal since we are made from the same earth." She then utters the forbidden name of God which gives Her demoness powers and flies off--Lilith is often pictured with wings between owls and lions with the talons of a raptor (or maybe she spends too much time in 4" heels lol).

2. The Hebrew word that is traditionally translated as “rib” is tsela‘. Ziony Zevit, Distinguished Professor of Biblical Literature and Northwest Semitic Languages at American Jewish University in Bel-Air, California, believes that this translation is wrong, as do many scholars. It was first translated as “rib” in the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible from the mid-third century B.C.E. However, a more careful reading of the Hebrew word for “rib” in the Adam and Eve story suggests that Lilith was created from another, very different, part of Adam’s anatomy—his os baculum (penis bone).

3. The term derives from the Hebrew word "sheketz", meaning the flesh of an animal deemed taboo by the Torah. In other legends Lilith is a redhead. Take your pick: a woman's hair color can be chosen to match her personality.

4."She is called Mother of Abortions because she hates fruitfulness in the daughters of Eve. With wicked arts she procures miscarriages." (from Liber Lilith ancient Hebrew text of unknown origins) Although the practice was likely kept secret, it is possible that ancient women used a strand of hair as a primitive IUD--legend often based in fact. The concept of foreign objects inserted in the uterus was well known in the middle east where small stones were inserted in a camel's uterus to prevent pregnancy while on caravan. In addition, hundreds of terra cotta votive wombs have been discovered from the period with a small pebble inside. Finally, the first modern IUD was produced in 1909 by German physician made of a silk suture--not unlike a strand of thick hair. Women have endeavored to have their cake and eat it too since the beginning. This is because unwanted pregnancy shackles a women far more securely than any other form of oppression. However,I wouldn't recommend using any ancient form of birth control. Stick with a good female gynecologist and stand up for reproductive rights.

5. A note on the dark path:

Some believe that those who follow the dark path are evil. This is not so. The dark path is simply the polar opposite of the path of light. Energy, divine or mundane, only flows between poles. Without the dark the light would blind us. Without the light, the darkness would swallow us. Both polarities are required to spin the Universe on the Event Horizon of the Eternal Now. The Power thus manifested can be used for good or evil, depending largely on ones perspective.

Lilith as Vampire

Nor is Lilith of the undead. She is the essence of life, fire and lust. The vampire comes in the night to steal the blood of his innocent victim, kissing her neck so tenderly she does not awaken. Nor does he intend to kill her. He seeks to enslave her. Nor, is it blood he consumes but her soul. As he drinks her blood she becomes like him, one of the undead, soulless, surviving eternally on the blood of their victims.

Lilith as Mother

No, Lilith does not consume souls but merges with them in a blaze of passion: raw unbridled sex. And sex is ultimately about procreation, the merging of flesh to create a new being. What Lilith draws from man is not his blood but his seed, his babies, that she may swell and disgorge legions of wigged angel/demons from her womb sent to light the fire in our loins.

6. You may wish to explore ways to attain extended orgasm both solo and with a partner. If you cannot reach and maintain orgasm reliably through masturbation you may wish to visualize sexual possession. Here you will need to make an offering of something other than your orgasm: wine and cake, for instance

7. It means something like "my orgasm is for the goddess". Marag means 'alive', ama makes it "my purpose for being alive" (my act of being alive). lilith "goddess". Rimok "god" (goblin). samalo "I speak this". Naamah - "I know that this is true" (also the name of the sister demoness and BFF of Lilith).

8. This is the name She has in the Babylonian Story of Inanna and Gilgames

9. This is the Lalitha Tripurasundari mantra

10. While the name Lilith (lilitu) is the first occurrence of the great slut goddess. Other names were to follow:

11.Lilith as Serpent or LuciferFrom The Garden of Eden by Lucas Cranach the Elder (1530) Lilith in some legends was actually the serpent--or Lucifer/Samael--who put the idea of having sex to Eve. Notice the female on the right half woman half serpent.

In this legend, we have another Lilith first: The First Home Wrecker lol. But then, Lilith was Adam's first choice. I'm sure he missed her now that Eve makes them wear fig leaves to cover their shame and deny their sexuality.

Lilith Lucifer mating

In another version of the legend Lilith cuckolds Adam with the serpent and begets Cain. When she brings the apple of desire home to Adam he insisted on dominating her, perhaps over jealousy of his new rival Lucifer. And yet another first: The First Love Triangle. Some versions say it was Samael/Lucifer who was insanely jealous because man was complete and he was not.

In still yet another version of the legend, Lilith makes a mannequin as a consort but is unable to give it life to satisfy her lust. She enlists the aid of Samael who lays with the clay man and engenders the divine light of life. The man is Adam, the first human as created by two demon lovers.

However you envision Her and in what legend, She is a perennial force in the cosmic pantheon representing a woman's desire to be unfettered and fulfilled in her passion and desire.
