Snahkher: Snahkher is a sacramental small whip used during some Devilist ceremonies and devotional prayers.
It is used to self-inflict pain; this is associated to a katartic exorcism of the negative aspects as well as a great offering of energy and personal emotion.
*Note:The Snahkher is frequently used during the devotional prayer: Midnight Prayer Of The Infernal Destiny** dedicated to Satana (Satania). Some devoted practitioners (usually Devilist Monks or especially oppressed individuals) use self-punishment with this prayer.
They use a sacred black leather whip (Snahkher) to spank their backs after reading each affirmation. This can be an exercice of katarsis and an extreme offering of pain to Satana –This practice is completely optional and voluntary.
**Note II: The Midnight Prayer Of The Infernal Destiny is divided in 3 programs or groups of affirmations; its main goal is to reveal your Infernal Destiny or Daemonic True Will and open the path to fulfill your mission. Also it is a powerful statement for protection against Right Hand Path influences.
Before begin with each program the adept will offer his/her own blood on the seal of Satana (Satania); and when the complete prayer is finished the adept -once again- will offer his/her own blood once again to close the practice.
