The Truth About Magick That Works

If magick is real, shouldn’t it bring results every time? There are few things in life that work perfectly every time, so it’s unlikely that magick – which relies on so many subtle forces – could be expected to work like clockwork. Despite this, the aim of The Gallery of Magick is to reveal magick that works. How then, can it ever fail?

Most of the time, the magick works, and there are now thousands of positive testimonials confirming this. But a small number of readers are bitterly angry that magick has failed them. I can understand their bitterness.

After my initial success with magick I tried methods that just didn’t work. I blamed the rituals, the authors, the techniques. I blamed magick itself and became highly sceptical and disillusioned. I wanted my results, badly, and I was hurt by the lack of manifestation. Having believed in magick, the world seemed a little dull and disappointing when magick failed.

Even after all these years, I sometimes find myself bewildered by the fact that magick works at all. I was brought up to believe that the only way to solve problems was to work hard, negotiate and then work harder still. To discover that there are supernatural ways to change my reality is something I have never quite got over. Hard work is still required, but magick makes everything easier. This fact remains wondrous. But I also know that magick doesn’t always work.

What I learned is that a single failure, or even a string of failures, does not deny the reality of all magick. Magick works, but the likelihood of magickal success can be improved if you address the following areas.

Explore Natural Ability

Some people insist that magicians are born, not made. I have usually thought of this as a sort of elitism, designed to frighten off those who are not recognised by an established order. But is it possible that some people have more natural ability and a closer connection to the reality of magick?

There are some people who sense that magick is real, and they keep working with it no matter what, until they find methods that work. Because the truth is that the magick works, and sometimes it is a case of finding the magick works best for you. I don’t believe anybody is destined to discover magick, but there are some who have an urge to work magick that borders on a compulsion. It may be present from childhood, but for some it only comes later in life.

Quite a few people have sent messages that say they’ve been practicing the occult for over thirty years without good results, but now they’re getting good results from my books. The most astonishing thing about this is that they persisted for thirty years, when the results weren’t so good. And yet I do understand that. There were times when I worked with magickal systems that just didn’t get results for me, but I still knew on some level, that magick was a worth pursuing.

So I think this is the only natural ability you require: a deep belief that magick is real. This gives you the will to continue with magick even when it doesn’t work, because you know it will work again. And if you don’t have this belief naturally, you can create a willingness to act as though magick is real, as though the human will, when combined with supernatural forces, can change the course of reality.


Open The Pathways

Magick can help you attain things that are currently out of reach, but it can’t achieve the impossible. That is, if you want to get a role in a feature film, you have to learn how to act, audition, and deal with the industry, and then you need to get out there and make sure you are seen. If you do, magick will support you. If you do a ritual to be discovered and do nothing about it, nothing will happen, no matter how powerful the magick.

Magick can power the improbable into existence, but it works best when it supports your efforts to assert your true will in the real world.

While it is true that magick can bring results out of the blue – as with random money or changes to your personality – a great deal of magick requires you to work in the real world to pave the way, to give magick a way to manifest. When magick fails it is often because the desired result is too far from current reality, or something you want handed to you on a plate.

Thankfully, you can reach a place that currently seems impossible, but the best way to get there is in stages. Occultists who aim for something that is just out of reach, and advance in stages, get so much further in a year than those who do workings that are asking for too much change at once.

Make a Commitment

Most people follow the instructions well, but there are quite a few times where I hear from people who’ve skipped a day, not read the book properly or proceeded without truly understanding the instructions. The stunning thing about this magick is that it seems to work for a lot of people even with a sloppy approach. But if ever it’s not working, you might want to make sure you’ve really studied the text. For most readers this is not an issue, but if you’ve skimmed through the book to the ‘best bit’, you might be doing yourself a disservice.

Use Emotional Imagination

You don’t need a strong visual imagination. All you need is the ability to imagine different emotional states. If you struggle with this, you can use memories to generate emotions. Those who get magick to work find that only the tiniest moment of emotional energy is sufficient to power a ritual. But some people perform the magick by just going through the motions, and miss out the emotional components. In many rituals, this emotional work is as important as the ritual structure itself, so cannot be underestimated.


Find The Right Magick

For most occultists, a blend of different magickal styles is the best way to get consistent results. You may find occasionally, however, that a particular strand of magick does not work for you. When that’s the case, put it aside, but not forever. I have found that magick is often right at a particular time in your life. It’s worth revisiting magick when your abilities have developed, and when you are getting consistent results, to see if something that was relatively weak in the past has become more potent for you in the present.

Know Your Self

I have strained for magickal results, sometimes for years, only to discover that the result was not something I wanted after all. It’s all too easy to fool yourself about what you really want. Far too easy. If I’d spent more time working on my self, to understand my true needs, I would have saved a lot of time. Magick makes so much possible that you must confront your true desire. The sooner you do this in the process, the more easily results will come. The 72 Sigils of Power can help with this.


Remove Resistance

Magick will fail if you resist the results. Although the spirits will do the work to set up a new reality for you, you can resist this reality, due to fear, guilt or lust for result. I’ve written about this so extensively on this site that it does not need addressing in detail again, but I mention it because I believe it remains the number one reason that people don’t get results.

Earlier, I asked how can magick ever fail. Perhaps the real question should be, how can magick ever work? How can it work so often for so many people, even when they have no occult training? I should not be dismayed that a small number of people fail to get results. I should be dismayed that so many people are able to change their reality with simple magickal instruction. The beauty of magick is that it can be simplified without losing its practical application. That’s the real revolution of the past few decades: magick that works.

  1. Mr. Brand, thank you for this posting.
    I’m pretty new to this reality of MAGICK, and have read four of your books including one by Mr. Winterfield. Admitting that the rituals are challenging and admitting that I’ve gotten some steps out of order, I can attest to IMMEDIATE SUCCESS! Really very shocked but GRATEFUL for the power of MAGICK.

  2. I love your books! I own all of them, and I feel that you create books that reaches all skill levels. Thank you so much <3

  3. I started my journey with magick back in April 2015. I followed everything to the letter. To be honest none of it has actually worked. No I never craved the results. I have actually forgotten all the rituals and still nothing has happened. I haven’t sat there waiting for the sun to fall out of the sky either. A classic example being the soul mate angel book. When I finished doing the relevant rituals I went out on quite a few occasions, but nothing! Got talking to lots of different women, still nothing. With the other angel rituals I did rituals that were supposed to reinforce what you’ve already done and pave the way for better results, still nothing! The magickal cashbook, nothing. I write this because it’s more or less a year since I began this and am equipped to say it hasn’t worked for me. I would dearly love to say otherwise, but how can I if nothing has happened? I shall maintain my inner strength and keep focused on positivity no matter what.

    1. It’s interesting that you persisted as long as you did. I hope you keep going. It’s worth noting that when I talked about a period of time where the magick just didn’t work, it was more about something I was going through than the magick itself. I haven’t used that particular magickal approach since, but I bet if I did I could get it to work. Not because I’m arrogant and think I’m a brilliant occultist, but because I can sense that the magick was ok, but I was not in a place where I could receive the results. Thanks for sharing your story. When people try it once and give up, that’s one thing, but after a year you know it’s not working. But I hope you can see that magick is working for many people and that if you have this level of interest, and an instinct about magick, it will being to work for you at some point.

      1. I’ll still persist with it. Just do the ritual and forget I’ve even done it is my philosophy. I’ll just keep focusing on being positive, it’s the one and only way forward.

        1. You are brave.!!!! And I can assure you that all the rituals you have performed are not in vain rather they are programming your mind for a better ritual to come. Now you will see that magick is not good and it is not bad if anything bad can really happen it will be that your magick will not work. And if anything good will show face is that you will enjoy it. And,if your magick never work out that can be very very bad, but nobody will die and you are also safe. What then are we talking about, work the works of Magick and when you will start to reap the benefits you will enjoy it and if not the only thing that is bad that can happen is that your ritual will not work. Even that is very bad but add no sorrow rather the hope you can still do another magick that will WORK.!

      2. Hello Mr Brand, I am really new to this. I have been I purchased the Job seeker and I am trying to buy a copy of your Magickal seduction book. I saw a copy online at amazon by seller deal-dealer for $!000 which is crazy! Can you help me out with a copy and tell me where to purchase it..

      3. Hi Damon, I have used your e-books for about a year. I decided to get this one as a paper backup in case my tablet gave up.,Yesterday, being a Thursday, I began a new working with Rehael, as I have been having issues with energy. This morning, I was glad to feel mire energetic. Then I got my poo paperback edition of the 72 angels and decided to try this version for day 2, only to find in this book it is Rehoel who has the power to regenerate energy. I decided to use the e-books Angel, as I had already started working with working with this Angel with success already. I have also found that the Angel assisting with metal workers is also different. Quite confusing. Please advise which are correct. Thanks

        1. The names have been updated in The 72 Angels book, but it’s the same angel. There are many ways to name angels. Some people would call Elemiah by the name Elemael, or Elemel, for example. The Hebrew spelling is the same, and it’s on the the transliteration that’s different. So feel free to use what was in the ebook, or use the updated version. Either will work. I’ve only updated these to be more in line with the transliterations that are currently in use by members of The Gallery.

          So it’s all correct, and you can use whichever you want. If you purchased the print books from you can get the new ebook free by going to the Kindle Matchbook Page, which would mean you had access to both.

          1. Thanks for your reply, Damon. I was concerned as not only the name but also the invocation had changed. The rest of the writing about their powers and the sigils were the same leading me to wonder if the publisher had mixed up the names and incantations. Prounouciation would not completely change an incantation. I can see how Yeialel can be Yeyilel but the invocation are completely different. Similarly Rehael and Rehoel are the same but again a completely different invocation. Thanks

            1. Yes, at the start of the book I say, “It’s essentially the same material. In this book, however, there is a new talisman used to contact the angels, and all seventy-two angelic sigils have been updated with Hebrew, rather than Latin.” It may not be clear from that sentence that the chants were also updated to be Hebrew. In most cases, these are the same psalms as in the earlier books. In a few, we’ve updated the book to include an alternate psalm. There are many psalms that work, but the current choice, with Hebrew, is my preferred method. You can use English or Latin if you prefer.

              1. Thanks, a different language would make sense. With the e-books being over several pages I have been writing it all by hand so it’s a relief to have everything on one double page. Kind regards.
