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, religion and seek their own personal truth.

Jaclyn Cherie has her roots in Upstate New York; she is a Creatrix, Author, Word Alchemist, Witch, Intersectional Feminist, Luciferian, Torchbearer and Wild Woman.

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

As the Owner and Creatrix of The Nephilim Rising all written content here and items in the Shop are the end result of her creative madness.

Her written work can also be found in Carolyn Elliott’s WITCH as well as Dolmen Grove Chronicles .

Recently, she has become the newest Contributing Writer to THoT– The House of Twigs.

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.

A third book is currently in progress and focuses on the Dark Divine Feminine.

Stay tuned for much more exciting news and events that have been brewing in the cauldron!

Preferring the Shadows to the Light, her Magick and writing are a reflection of this; it is in the Darkness that she found her true form.

Stories told here originate from the watery depths of her Cancerian Soul, and chronicle her cyclical death and rebirth from the Womb of the Dragon.
