Dear Ones,

Here are some perspectives on the mission of Satan, and on Satanic powers.


Some say Satan is not supreme evil. Instead, they feel it is an intelligent being, an organized force that is necessary to the creation and enactment of Lila, the Play of Creation. Satan’s adversarial actions on humankind force us to develop spiritual discrimination, and this discrimination leads to Soul-realization.

It seems to me that this an excellent explanation of the mission of Satan, from a higher perspective. From the perspective of the minions of Satan, on the other hand, and frequently from the human perspective, this higher mission is not in focus. Rather, the emphasis is on enjoyment of producing Darkness.


See “Satan, Demons & the Powers of Darkness,” by Diane S. Dew, … COMMENT: I learned a lot about Satan from this reference.

I feel that the Biblical description of Satan’s character, as being bold, arrogant, cunning, deceiving, ambitious and basically ‘full of himself’ is also a good description of the qualities he attempts to embed as malware in the etheric net of human beings, through distortions of the Light.


Satan Wants to Be Worshipped; see, for example: Revelation 13:4 (KJV, public domain)

4 “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”

In the recently concluded commotion with the presence of Baal in Los Angeles, I noticed that it was the worshipping of Baal (or Ba’al) by black magickers that made the energy of this being strong. When the worship ceased, the power of Baal diminished and then disappeared. So apparently, Satan gains his power over us through our ceding our own free will to him.


Satan Is a Great Deceiver, He Speaks as a Dragon. See, for example, Revelation 12 (KJV, public domain)

7 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 “And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

and also Revelation 13 (KJV, public domain)

11 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon
12 “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 “And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”

On the above description of Satan as a dragon: In my personal milieu, the draconic aspect of Satan left Earth a few years ago, as this life form was not compatible with the planet’s increasing Light quotient. Possibly they are there for you still, but, I’ll wot, not for long.

I note also that he Latin word ‘draco’ (in case that is what is referred to in the Biblical translation) means ‘dragon’ or ‘serpent’. In the context of this blog, I have categorized it not as ‘dragon’ but as ‘drac’, a reptilian species in popular folklore. This might also have to do with my blog category: Reptilian mind

Satan Causes Men to Lie; see, for example, Acts 3 (KJV, public domain)

1 “But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
2 “And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
3 “But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?”

This attribute of Satan, of causing men to lie, goes along with his quality of being a deceiver. He’s a tricky guy, and he causes people to be full of tricky double-speak as well. Some say he does this by installing malware and malspeak ‘velcro’ wherever he can in our Soul field, and this, they say, turns our very truthful quarks and sparkly bodies of light slightly mottled. So they say!


He’s called the “Prince and Power of the Air” in Ephesians 2 (KJV, public domain)

1 “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.”

I get this very thoroughly — his power is of the air. He can talk, possibly with assistance from his minions, in many voices, all at once or sequentially.

He can imbue these voices with the Soul wounding qualities of our friends, and so trick us into thinking we are talking in our minds with our friends, when in fact we are not.

He can threaten us, but he cannot follow through except by latching onto the Soul woundings of other people, or by temporarily ‘possessing’ animals, since they don’t have a quality of higher mind.

He can also ‘possess’ people, by sending Satanic essence into them and inspiring them with fear. Fear is not our true nature, and so he can distance us from our truth in this way. But only temporarily.

Satan is a lot of hot air!


He is called the “God of This World” Who Can Blind the Minds of Men; see 2 Corinthians 4 (KJV, public domain)

1 “Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 “But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
3 “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

This reference to time implies his power is in the third dimension only, since that dimension is built on the illusion of time and space. Prince of this world. I am guessing, prince of Planet Earth (only).

The reference to blinding the minds of men may have to do with Satan’s powers of mind control.


Prince of Devils. There is a reference to this in Matthew 12:24 (KJV, public domain), which calls Beelzebub (another name for Satan) the “prince of the devils.”

OK, I am recently conversant with this. It seems that, so as to create for us the illusion of duality, each of us is tethered to a devil at birth. Not the most pleasant notion, but not all that pleasant for the devils either. Because as our Light quotient increases, our personal devil becomes more and more frenetically insistent at presenting us with Dark alternatives. And, I am guessing, there comes a point in our evolution of brightness when our unwanted tethered companion just goes poof!

Though I am for preserving endangered species, I do not feel at all bad about this. They may not like it. They may fear It greatly. But each and every ‘poofee’ is just returning to its highest Truth. To Source. They do not know it now, but they are going to like it a lot when it finally happens. It is all in the hands of the Divine anyway … The Divine knows exactly how it all should happen.

[More recently I have interpreted the above as the ‘shadow of the personality’ … see that category on my blog. The ‘shadow of the personality’ of people on Earth is becoming ever brighter and purer since 2012, which I feel to be a very good thing.]

By the way, devils can talk to each other, and we can hear our own devil chatting to the devils of our friends, whether or not they are nearby physically. It may sound like us talking to our friends, as devils take on, in an exaggerated sense, the Soul qualities of the humans to which they are tethered.

Devils can also swoop through our mental field, in the head area, creating a discombobulating feeling like an elliptical energy a little smaller than a basketball. This temporarily disturbs our thinking, and can be upsetting if we have the mental construct that we are our minds. But it cannot bother a person whose awareness is placed in his heart.

Devils can crawl in through a body orifice. Once inside, they can crawl around making spooky little comments. This can be upsetting if we have the mental construct that we are our bodies. Extremely spooky, I have to admit. It’s important to realize that their intention … their raison d’être … is to create darkness in us, and not to kill us. So this ploy is an attempt to create fear.

[More recently I have interpreted the above as nature spirits that have been mind controlled by black magic. This is mostly no longer the case on Earth, as far as I can tell.]

An excellent solution: call on your celestial team … or if you prefer, your Higher Self. Ask your team or Self to dispose of the interloper in the manner that is best for All. Then thank your team / Self for helping you. Gratitude is very important in this instance. Not only does it dispel fear, but it also aligns your grounded self with the highest, with your vertical energetic influences, rather than your horizontal energetic influences.

It could be that ‘freelance devils’ … the devils in the dream world, in 4D, untethered to humans … disappeared from Earth a while back. At least in my own life, they disappeared a long time ago.

[It could be that these ‘freelance devils’ are the real McCoy.]

Uncoloring. Note that the manner in which I reinterpreted these astral critters over time is a technique called uncoloring, which is described by Swamij …

Link: “Uncoloring Your Colored thoughts
through Yoga,” by Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati … ..

Another way to shift from a scary scenario to a copacetic one is to utilize my timeline and dimensional optimization techniques (search these terms on my blog site).

Note also that this blog was written during a time when many Solar Events were about to unfold; as I recall, 2 X-class flares and, was it 6? M-class flares; see …

Link: “Sun Continues to Emit Solar Flares,” by NASA, 28 October 2013 … ..


Accuser of the Brethren. This term is used in Revelation 12 (KJV, public domain)

10 “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Hum … I am guessing this attribute has to do with persecution of those with a high Light quotient … for instance, lightworkers, Spirit-filled Christians, and like that. Truthfully, though, it is not persecution. It is actually an opportunity for each of us to transform darkness to Light, through loving awareness.


Lucifer. As everyone knows, another name for Satan is Lucifer (the shining one, the bearer of light).

Well yes, it is true, Satan will try to trick us into calling for help from the ‘angels of Light,’ meaning himself. When so tempted, instead call on the ‘angels of Christed love energy’. This works quite well for me; and may work for you too.


In Matthew 13 (KJV, public domain), Satan is called The Wicked One:

19 “When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.”

Yes, definitely wicked. So if you’re clairsentiently sensing ‘wicked’ things, you will know who is hanging out in your vicinity. By the way, all you Lightworkers: There’s no need whatsoever to try to save Satan. That’s God’s job, and his alone. Leave it to the Divine!

And if Satan is pranking around with your friends and family, it is just fine to leave their salvation to the Divine as well. When they see and feel your trust in the Divine, they may turn to what will truly save them as well. But whether or not they chose to turn to the Divine is totally within the domain of their own free will.


Satan as Beelzebub: “from Hebrew: baal, lord; zebub, a fly.

It is true, he can fly, and like flies, he is pretty annoying, and seems to be all over the place just as we are anticipating a good spread.


Satan as ‘The Devil‘, Murderer, and the Father of Lies; see John 8 (KJV, public domain)

44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

Devil. Sometimes this is a name for one of the heavenly hosts that fell in Satan’s company. Sometimes, as in the above passage, it is used as a synonym for the word ‘Satan’.

Murderer. Of what? Of our understanding of what is true. When our bodies are not in Satanic wounding, we are far longer-lived. And in our true state, in our Soul essence, we are eternal.

Father of Lies. Definitely, a concealer of the infinite, loving healing power of Source.


In this well-known story of the temptation of Christ in the desert, Satan is called ‘The Tempter‘:

1  “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2 “And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
3 “And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” –Matthew 4:1-4 (KJV, public domain)

The Tempter. Through suggestion to the ‘gut brain,’ he turns us away from Source. Satan can tempt any person by offering them worldly power. Might be power over others, as in the case of nation-aggrandizing or corporation-aggrandizing aggressive acts. Might be ego-engorgement. Might be riches … far more riches than we can actually use. Might be sexual advantage. Might be physical robustness, long life. He offers that which increases the basic obfuscations of Soul Light: anger, greed, lust, pride and attachment (or possessiveness). That is to say, the ‘lower triangle’ considerations, which appeal to the ‘gut brain.’

The final physical prospect for folks duped into Satanic bargains looks not that pleasant.


In Matthew 13 (KJV, public domain), Satan is called ‘The Enemy‘ …

38 “The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 “The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.”

The Enemy.  Now this is an interesting concept. By thinking of Satan as The Enemy, we perpetuate the illusion of duality. Why do we think of him as The Enemy? Because he tempts us to turn to that which causes us Soul pain. And because we think of Soul pain as our enemy, when in fact it is a reminder of our path to Joy.


Here Satan is referred to as a Roaring Lion and as The Adversary: 1 Peter 5 (KJV, public domain)

8 “Discipline yourselves, keep alert … Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour.”

Roaring Lion. He can be very talkative, and if we concentrate on his prattle rather than on the natural world around us, his chatter can seem very loud. I find that singing a hymn sends him packing.

The Adversary. It does seem like Satan is the adversary, but I feel that this is an illusion. Satan is here to help us rise to higher Truth, by offering us a contrast between good, as among the Angels, and evil, as in evil old him. Although, this may not be Satan’s point of view.


Satan’s End … The Lake of Fire: Revelation 20 (KJV, public domain)

10 “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

I wonder if Satan will fall into a solar flare? Could that possibly be? Or maybe he will just … zap! … turn back into an angel again. That would be great!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
