Hi i was wondering how to strike a faustian bagain/deal. I've reviewed the consequences and long-term problems and for now wish to know this for study use only until further needed. Thanks in advanced :)
Faustian deals are complete works of fiction. The name/term Faustian literally comes from a play. You'll only find such deals in fiction such as the TV show Supernatural's concept of a crossroads demon based on myths of people making demonic deals at crossroads. I personally believe demons exist but they're not going to physically alter you, make you rich, etc...in exchange for some ritualistic act or the supposed selling of your soul. They can't bend the laws of physics or alter reality any more than a human can ignoring the fact no otherworldly being is likely to do so for you even if they are capable.

It is not a fiction, but it is one of the most dangerous practices.
There are many boox about.
Key of Solomon (Clavicula Salomonis), Peter de Abano - Heptameron, Liber Juratus and many others.
I think there could be some better and less dangerous.
See Iamblichus: Theurgia, or the Egyptian Mysteries.
I didn't mean to imply people don't make pacts with entities such as demons. Many people attempt to make deals but assuming they come out of it ok the best any claim is perhaps a boost in magickal strength. I've never heard of anything miraculous coming of such deals in other words as the laws of physics and earthly limitations still apply. The fact is your taking a lost of risk and offering a lot for meager gain from what I've seen. Some claim such entities grant knowledge and I agree with the saying knowledge is power, but one should always make sure the payout is worth the price. Many who seek such deals desire drastic change in their life such as fame and/or fortune, physical transformation, etc...none of which I have ever heard as been achieved by demonic deals.
