If this is your first time visiting our website, we suggest that review some of our previous discussion and share some of your thoughts and insights by posting a comment. We wish you all the best in your spiritual journey. Have a blessed day!
Today we have the honor to hear from a practitioner of Goju-ryu, who was recently appointed as Witch of the Month on one popular website. I think there is much to gain from his wisdom, as he is heavily involved in the Necronomicon Tradition. For me this interview is a milestone, we have always been around the same circle of people, but never really connect. So let’s begin at the beginning.
Warlock Asylum: It is truly an honor to have this opportunity to hear some of your experiences, insights, and wisdom. I am happy that we finally got a chance to vibe, as we have always been around the same circles. It seems like just a matter of time and so much has grown for you in a positive way. Yet, for those who are not familiar with your work, please introduce yourself. Who is Terraine Hicks?
The Dark Lord: It is a great honor and pleasure to connect with a highly revered legend as your self your work has never gone unnoticed I am Terrane Hicks a.k.a. “The Dark Lord. “ My crafts are shamanism, martial arts, psychic readings, and occult education. I have been on the path since I was a child. I am fortunate to teach and heal many whom I have come across.
Warlock Asylum: What inspired you to really get involved in the study of occult sciences?
The Dark Lord: What really inspired me to get involved in the occult was martial arts. As a child I studied martial arts that pretty much was my foundation into the occult the arts took me straight to the path.
Warlock Asylum: A lot of people admire you for approaching the deeper aspects of spirituality with “consciousness” that is valuable for the survival of oppressed people. What specific areas of the occult have you studied and how have you made these sciences a useful part of your journey?
The Dark Lord: I agree with your statement 100% the occult if you ask me is the only hope for oppressed people at this time . I have studied many of the “Dark Arts,” which include shamanism, African Traditional Religions, martial arts, sorcery, Kemetic spirituality, and ancient Sumerian practices. I use the systems as a way of life and also teach the sciences that I know daily. This is what I do full time.
Warlock Asylum: Practitioners of the mystical arts must often work in private, as the world of mainstream, despite all the symbolism that surrounds us, just can’t seem to accept that our reality is based on certain hidden laws. This line of thinking is even more pervasive in urban areas. In view of such, what were some of the obstacles that you had to overcome to become who you are today?
The Dark Lord: Its really frustrating to know the truth and see symbolism all over for the people you care about to be totally oblivious to what s going on around them can be depressing. I had to get used to being the Black Sheep because I practice the darker side of sorcery at first, I had a hard time trying to figure out how not to scare people away.
Warlock Asylum: How did you come into contact with the workings of the Simon Necronomicon and the Necronomicon Tradition?
The Dark Lord: I met a really powerful henna artist by the name of Maatira she noticed that I had a copy of The Necronomicon by Simon and she taught me the science that has then opened up another world for me.
Warlock Asylum: Based on your experiences so far, what is your opinion of the Necronomicon Tradition, meaning its practice? How real is this system?
The Dark Lord: I went into the deep end of the ocean right away because of my foundation in martial arts this has forced me to go through many schools of thought and practices with that being said I can only gravitate towards with what is tangible and practical The Necronomicon Tradition in my opinion is the most legit system in the West. Although it is incomplete at this time and we are still deciphering the secrets of the Necronomicon, I believe it is one of the most legit systems ever!
Warlock Asylum: I am just discovering your YouTube Channel (The Royal BloodLine). Can you tell us a little bit about how this project started and its aims?
The Dark Lord: My YouTube Channel was started off of a secret Facebook group I founded with my partner called The Royal Bloodline. Both the Facebook group and the YouTube Channel have the same mission. Our goal is to reach the oppressed and to give them the science and the tools they need to free themselves we are selfless with the information. We give and we want people to share it all over the world. We want our followers to uncover what is there, in regards to the ancient knowledge. The YouTube Channel is very good for those at the beginner level of magick and those whom are advanced.
Warlock Asylum: What are some other ventures you have pursued, or currently working on at this time?
The Dark Lord: Readings, guided meditations, are just some of the services The Dark Lord provides. I also participate in lectures and The Royal Bloodline with my partner, the Queen YKeme Bey. This group alone, has over 13,000 member. YKeme and I host live lectures and teachings on energies, magical techniques, psychic powers and share some of the occult understanding I have gained during my journey.
Warlock Asylum: In what ways have your relationships with family and friends changed since becoming an occultist?
The Dark Lord: That is an interesting question. I know for many whom walk this path they are usually shunned by friends and family. I, on the other hand, have manages to draw my friends and family into what I practice. Everyone is intrigued because of the age that we are in and the authenticity of what I practice.
Warlock Asylum: Martial Arts is an integral part of the Necronomicon Tradition. What style of the martial arts do you study and how has the arts aided you in occult studies?
The Dark Lord: I practice Goju Ryu and it has been an aid in my studies. First, I will say that martial arts is the perfect foundation for someone whom wants to get into the Necronomicon Tradition and other occult sciences because of the discipline one has to cultivate. The occult, especially the Necronomicon, has given me an even deeper understanding and knowing of martial arts. I was able to tap into a secret degree of information concerning martial arts, based on Necronomicon Sciences.
Warlock Asylum: What advice would you give to initiates of the Necronomicon Tradition, Ninzuwu Culture, as well as those who are searching for their spiritual path?
The Dark Lord: The best advice I can give for those dealing with The Necronomicon by Simon is to stay humble and constantly check your Ego. Stay in discipline this is a lifetime practice that comes with a lot of power and responsibility.
Warlock Asylum: They say that there is no progress without inner transformation. How has this principle demonstrated itself to you in your life?
The Dark Lord: When you really go deep into the spiritual you, you will come to find out that everything is about this very principle of inner transformation and this is what it is all about in a nutshell.
Warlock Asylum: Thank you very much for this blessed opportunity brother. We should definitely make some plans to get together in the future. Any final thoughts?
The Dark Lord: I look forward to connecting with you in the future. I would like to thank you for this interview and thank you for Papers in the Attic and the platforms you have created!
