Tales from a Torchbearer


The goal of this blog is to promote free thinking in a society that tells us who and what we are supposed to be and how we are to love, live and believe.

The Nephilim Rising™ was birthed from excessive creative energy that needed an outlet.

This is a place that welcomes all paths; all those who wish to step outside the confines of mainstream society and seek their own personal truth.

Jaclyn Cherie has her roots in Upstate New York.

She wears many hats as a Creatrix, Author, Witch, Luciferian, Shaivite Hindu, Word Alchemist, Torchbearer.

A lifelong, hereditary Witch with over 20 years of hands on experience, Jaclyn draws wisdom from her Elders, Ancestors and Deities.

Influenced heavily by the Dark Goddesses, Mighty Hekate, Spirits of Death and Liminal spaces; she acts as a key to the other side and is a conduit for their messages.

Finding her Muses in the most unusual places and people, she strives to tell raw, real stories of Magick, the human condition, and, her favorite topic, rebellion.

As the Owner and Creatrix of The Nephilim Rising all written content here is the end result of her creative madness, and guest Authors she spotlights.

She is a Contributing Writer for THoT- The House of Twigs.

As well as an Instructor for The House of Twigs: School of Ritual.

Her first book was a collaborative effort with a group of fellow Luciferians and Rebels titled Lucifer: The Light of the Aeon and it was published in September, 2016 by Black Moon Publishing.

The second book, also a collaborative effort and published by Black Moon, is a collection of song, poetry, personal experience, and ritual. Songs of the Black Flame, published in March, 2017 is an intimate look into how Lucifer shines every brightly in the lives of everyday Luciferians.

Stepping outside of her comfort zone, Jaclyn contributed to Inanna’s Ascent: Reclaiming Female Power which is an anthology put together by The Girl God and was released in September, 2018.

In July 2019, a fourth Anthology was birthed into being–

Original Resistance: Reclaiming Lilith, Reclaiming Ourselves.

Preferring a mixture of Shadow and Light, her Magick and writing are a reflection of this; it is in the Darkness that she found her true form and the Light where she is cyclically reborn.
