Since you're not going to do such a thing I would suggest you first look at Manly Hall's writings on the subject in: The Secret Teachings Of All Ages."
Hall's assertion, in brief, is that such a deal is made with demons/elementals who will basically work for you albeit for you in the exchange. Although I tend to think who's working for who is a good question on such an arrangement.
A search with "Manly Hall" and "pact with devil" will almost certainly pull up relevant passages.

Faustian pact :
All occult is aimed to break out of the personal script that is played out in the matrix.
Most (but not all) personal scripts protect people from direct harm.
Scripts are protected by key decisions (), involving symbolic death/fear/sacrifice/harm/sexual.
Causal there is no relation between 'blood sacrifice' (like BOI) and consequental syncronicities within the matrix.
However conceptual there is.
Concepts , ideas will realign within the matrix to create a greater potential within the script.
The matrix realigns and a 'darker' simulated reality with a less protective script is rendered.

Daemons are actually teachers. Rather than a deal with the devil work with the daemons from The Goetia.
With practice they will work for you, even the lesser lords and high lords. However, do not promise them something you cant offer, and always thank them. Solomon taught us that we power over daemons

You're welcome to believe that.
Some however have seen enough proof, coincidence, synchronicity, or whatever you might want call it, to know better.
I understand almost any happening can be pinned on positive thinking, coincidental timing , or just plain luck.
Again some people have true faith. Others have seen absolute proof through their pen eyes. I myself am one who's seen proof of a higher power whatever that might be.
I understand somewhere there is something more powerful than I could imagine. I truly know this. Although many of my questions are still unanswered, my hope is that everyone may one day witness their own proof or evidence. Both humbling and awe inspiring for myself.
