The best thing about making your magick powerful is that it’s easy. You don’t need to train yourself in visualisation, meditation, or any special kind of breathing. You don’t need to spend hours learning to say magick words. And you don’t need to buy anything else. You just need to notice what you probably already know about magick and put that into practice.
Magick works, and we all know that, but I get asked all the time: how can I make this more powerful, how can I become a more powerful occultist? The answers might not be what you expect. They might seem repetitive, or they could feel utterly new and thrilling. There’s a lot of truth here, so I hope it shines through
ONE: See the Reflection
Reflect on the nature of magick power. Wait! Did I just say reflect? That sounds a bit boring. Can’t we just rub the Three Magick Coins of Mystery together and get instant magick? Lovely thought, but no, they don’t exist. Instead, reflect on why you want to increase the power of your magick in the first place. Magick is powerful. It does what it’s meant to do. If you were attracted by the idea of increasing your magickal power that’s completely great and to be expected (I still try to improve my magick power, all the time), but if you’re really, really desperate to increase the power of your magick, it could mean that you’re filled with doubt about the inherent power of magick. Reflect on the fact that magick works. When people say, ‘It doesn’t work,’ you know they are wrong. Hold on to that feeling. Embrace that feeling when you’re planning a ritual, when you work a ritual, and while the results are shooting toward you from the future to your present. This sounds like a minor idea – magick works, yeah, yeah, big deal, show me the power… But trust me when I say that if you reflect on the feeling that magick works, you can improve your magick power. Doing this just once, or every now and then, or even every morning, has more impact on your magick than you might think possible. It’s not a ritual, an obligation or a ten-minute meditation. Just a reflection, a little think about magick, and noticing how you feel when you know it works.
TWO: Use the Magick You Already Have
If you find yourself saying, ‘I want a better, more powerful sigil,’ I bet you don’t need it. I bet there’s a way to get where you want with what’s already in your hands. Does this mean I’m telling you to stop buying magick books? Yes, if you’re only reading them and never using them. Use them! Make sure you’ve got a few good magick books before you take this one too literally!
THREE: Welcome Imperfection
Be cool when magick doesn’t work. Don’t demand results all the time. Perform magick expecting the best, but be relaxed when it doesn’t go exactly the way you hoped. Magick is a practical exploration, where you find out what style of magick works for you. This can take time, and then it can change. Your relationship with magick will evolve. Magick that doesn’t work for you now might one day be the magick you turn to first. Be open to this evolution. You don’t learn to ride a bicycle without falling off and scraping your knee. Magick is safer than riding a bicycle, so when it doesn’t work perfectly, get back on and keep riding. But maybe take a different path.
FOUR: Look Down from Above
Every once in a while, take stock of where you are and where you’re going. After six months of magick, you are not the same person you were before. Have a look at what’s changed, and see if your needs are the same. Don’t pursue an old dream out of habit. Use something like The 72 Sigils of Power to contemplate what it is you really want. Knowing what you want can save you years of splashing around in the wrong desires.
FIVE: Do Intuition the Easy Way
Trust yourself, because intuition is nothing more than a confident guess. That’s not technically true, because I really think intuition is a lovely blend of self-knowledge combined with time-bending psychic power. But when you think of it like that, it seems impossibly difficult to obtain. So think of it as just a confident guess, and use it! That’s all. In practice, intuition is no more mystical than a hunch. Get used to using your intuition. Magick responds.
SIX: Go Minimal
You might want to light a candle, wear a necklace with a symbol on it, and do other things that might empower your rituals. That’s OK, so long as it’s not a form of procrastination or an expression of doubt. But you don’t need any paraphernalia. The more magick you do, the more you learn about magick, so put the stuff away and do magick.
SEVEN: Perform The Daily Practice
A lot of people don’t want to read Wealth Magick, because it’s a very long-term working and some of the rituals contain demons, and that’s all ok, but there is a very simple (completely non-demonic) ritual in that book that is more powerful than you can imagine. The Daily Practice might read like a sort of New Age mindfulness trick rather than a ritual, but there is so much more to it than that. If you perform the Daily Practice, everything improves. Not just your magick. (For those who will never buy Wealth Magick, an advanced version of The Daily Practice will appear in another form at some point in the future.)
EIGHT: Add Some Empty Time
I do a lot of magick, but I make sure I spend a lot of time walking, sitting around gazing out the window, driving with the radio off, floating in the pool… (Not all at the same time!) It’s not meditation; it’s just lazing around, on my own. Lots of people swear by meditation, as a way to make room for the insights that magick can provide. But the problem with doing meditation to get magickal answers is that it stops feeling passive; it feels like a result-based task, and that backfires for most meditation. The solution is to have some empty time. Time when you’re just doing very little, without input from earphones, screens or other people. You can do something during this time if you want – doodling, wandering, baking – but don’t do much. Or you can do nothing at all, and just sit around for a while. You are not looking for answers or pursuing ideas. But if you spend some time every day in this empty time, after a few weeks your magick will seep into this time. All those thoughts that the angels are trying to nudge at you; this is where they will manifest.
NINE: Monitor Your Motivation
People sometimes tell me they just can’t be bothered doing a full eleven-day ritual. OK, fair enough, we all get overwhelmed. But if that’s the case, don’t do it. Resentful magick fills the magick with resentment. If completing a ritual makes you think, ‘Wow, phew, thank goodness that’s over,’ that’s the wrong feeling. Magick should be a treat, a moment where you get to dive into your desire and feel the alchemy when your desire changes to satisfaction. It should feel good. If it doesn’t, stop for a while, or try magick that only takes a day, or a few moments (like Words of Power or Sigils of Power).
The best films are always more interesting the second time you watch them. It’s true with books too. The best authors always try to layer their work so that you are rewarded when you re-read. If you’ve only read a magick book once, read it again now that you’ve spent some time working the magick. Never do this if it feels like it’s going to be boring, but if your curiosity ever tingles, then have a glance through and see if any chapters catch your attention. You should find that something new reveals itself, and your connection to magick improves. Even the books that you don’t use contain techniques and ideas that can be applied to your magickal work.
ELEVEN: Speculate Less and Experiment More
Readers sometimes ask which ritual to use, and then many weeks later they write again, still undecided. In that time, you can try out three or four rituals, or more. Four weeks of pondering are four weeks of potential change down the drain. When you try four different rituals, you learn more about yourself, and what magick feels right for you.
TWELVE: Dream of More
When you want a lot, magick responds more powerfully than when you only want a little. It’s important to keep your head when considering this. As you probably know, demanding huge change with magick can lead to poor results; lusting after the impossible leads to disappointment; and small, gradual changes are often the best way to find magickal success. But despite these truths, magick loves a dreamer. Every time you get a result, you feel gratitude, and in the glow of that gratitude, see where your feelings take you. What do you imagine could be possible? In satisfying a desire, what do you feel about your potential? In these moments, you gain insight into the possibility of who you are going to be, and what you are going to do.

As Julie mentioned, thank you so much for taking the time to respond to all our questions in detail. To answer to your question, I have been trying the magic for couple of months now and yet to see any results. I think I’m doing the rituals correctly, not really lusting for results, but no results yet, hence I need you help. Can you guide me to kickstart my success through magic so that I gain more confidence on this? Appreciate your help. Once again I really trust this whole magic, just that I need someone to help me with this. Thanks a lot!
Yeah, I can try. Did you take my advice and read the last fifteen or so blog posts? And while you’re at it, you should read the FAQs for the books your using, and the main FAQ. There is such a wealth of info – we could take it away from this site, put it into three books and charge $20, because it’s as good as anything we sell. But almost anything I say here to ‘kickstart’ you will be quoting from those articles, or referring you to them. If you did read them, did anything chime or make sense or give you an idea of where to head next?
Thanks for the nice article. I really loved your new book and I had to admit its by far the most easiest methods to use. Also the highlight is that it has the healing methods as well. Thank you so much for sharing them.
I’m really new to magic and I have to be honest, I tried the magic from Damon Brand books and yours as well & yet to find success. Can you kindly help?
Thanks, and glad you like the book. I’m kind of amazed (but quietly pleased) you’re still going, even though you’ve had no results. A lot of people give up, but often all you need to do it let time pass, get out of your way, let the magick be what it will be. But also, I don’t know when you say you’re new if you mean a few days, weeks or a year. If it’s only weeks, make sure you don’t wait for results, but allow them. There are many, many posts on here about all this, so my main recommendation these days is read the last ten or fifteen blog posts – it’s like a book of How To Do Magick. That should help. And it also depends on what you define as success. We’re seeing amazing results from Sigils of Power, but that doesn’t mean amazing for everybody. If you seek a result that just out of reach, it should come. If you reach too far, everything stays out of reach. But this site expands on the books in a way that really makes a difference to loads of people! Cheers, AB.
Thanks for your excellent book and for these suggestions on how to increase magickal power. I have most of the GOM’s books and I find the magic generally works quickly and quite easily for me.
I left a message here for Damon a while back about how I used the books to get a couple new jobs (well, I got one, then a few months later, found one I liked even better), but I left out something interesting that had happened. I work in the investment industry and the interview process for these types of jobs can be fairly long and intense. Last summer I was still working at my previous job, but I’d been interviewing for a new role at a different firm that I really, really wanted. I was doing Wealth Magick at the time and complementing it here and there with some angel magick… I wouldn’t say I was lusting for results, since I had a good job at the time, but I found myself getting annoyed by little things at work and I was checking my email constantly for news about the other job. Anyway, the interview process had been going on for about 4 months at this point, and even though I was feeling confident because I knew I had all these angels, demons and other spirits helping me, I was starting to get nervous, because it had been about a month since my last interview. One night I was out for drinks with a friend after work. I got home a few hours later and laid in bed, and as I was drifting to sleep, I very clearly heard a voice speak to me and say something about “tomorrow.” Immediately I knew that it was a spirit telling me that I’d hear about the job the next day. I got to work and was so confident that I’d hear something, that I didn’t even check my email until about noon. And sure enough, I had an email from HR asking me to come in for one last round a couple days later. I met one of the guys on the senior leadership team and he basically told me I was getting the job, then I got an official offer 2 days later.
Is it common for the spirits to speak to someone like this? It happened when I was least expecting it, but it really reaffirmed for me that these spirits are present and actively helping us. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to hear a spirit’s voice since, but it was a beautiful, clear female voice, and I’d love to have that experience again!
Separately, I’ve been using various sigils from your new book and I’ve had a lot of success with them so far. One in particular really stands out for me though. I live in Canada and I went to Europe for a quick vacation recently. I had been intending to use the sigil to Attract Worthy Friendship, because you mentioned you use that one when traveling. I was going away by myself, and I thought it would be cool to meet some people to hang out with while I was gone. I planned to use it the week before I left, however my schedule ended up being filled with work and social dinners, and I realized I wouldn’t have a chance. Once I arrived in Europe though, I began meeting people and had a great time exploring and going for meals with my new friends. I even met a local who took me surfing for free, just because he thought I seemed like a fun person. So even though I didn’t use the sigil, I still got all the benefits from it!
On another note, I was wondering if you can start releasing the paperback version of your books in Canada? It isn’t a huge deal to order from the US, but it just takes longer to get here. They used to be available on the Canadian Amazon, but your most recent book is only there in kindle format.
Anyway, thanks again for everything! I love all the GOM’s books and the hardest part is actually figuring out what I want to ask for next!
Hey Julie, great story, thanks. Maybe others will say, ‘Yes, that happens to me.’ I say it’s fairly common, but not so common that you warn people to expect it. Everybody has a different experience when they eat any given food. Everybody has a different experience when they do magick. Disembodied voices frighten some, and are a lovely surprise to others. I love them. I have found, though, that as with generic descriptions of ghosts, when it happens to me I tend to feel very underwhelmed at the time – and only later go wow. But that changes, and it’s different for everybody. If you’re not scared of it, it’s probably going to happen again, but don’t hope for it so much as just let it happen if it’s going to.
Great to hear the sigils are working – and although some would shake their heads at the idea of magick working without you do the ritual, this keeps coming up on this site, and on Facebook. With all our magick, but especially these sigils, the intention to do the magick makes it happen (for some people, some of the time.) Love it!
I don’t handle the actual techie side of publishing, but I spoke to the people who do and we had no idea the Canada thing had happened. Recently, there were shifts behind the scenes at Amazon, with books moving from their little Createspace company to Amazon itself. Apparently, we went along with that, but the people who handle our publishing didn’t check the details, and from what we can see, we lost Canada!!! Not happy. Amazon have been contacted to see what the solution/timeline is. I hope there is one!
Thanks for the reply. It’s so nice that you take the time to respond to everyone who asks questions or posts comments here. I think it makes people feel even more connected to the magick.
Thanks for looking into the Amazon Canada thing… hopefully the new books will start getting sold here again!
When I heard the voice I was initially startled, because I hadn’t been expecting it. But as soon as it was over and I had a chance to realize what it was, I felt happy and at peace. I just hope that if/when it happens again, I can stay calm and hopefully have more of a two-way conversation!
It’s interesting you mention in your article to do the Daily Practice consistently. I completed the Wealth Magick working in October last year, but the Daily Practice is something I’ve continued with on an on-going basis. I wasn’t doing it every day, but usually 3-4 times a week. But after reading your article, I’ve decided to commit to doing it each day. I’ve been noticing for a while that things have been playing out in my favour quite often lately, even when I haven’t done magick for anything specific. For example, I’ve had a few instances lately where I’ve wanted to go to a specific restaurant, then I’ll get invited there for a work dinner a couple days later. I live in a city with tons of amazing restaurants, so this can’t be a coincidence. Also, my job can be very demanding and high pressured and I’ve had a few situations happen where my initial thought was “omg I don’t know what to do.” But then everything ends up working out even better than I could have expected! I wasn’t sure what was causing all of this, but now I think it could be partially from the Daily Practice.
Anyway, thanks again! I love the GOM so much!
Thank you. I’m told Canada will be back on the list eventually, but for now, Canadians are advised to buy from Amazon.com. Sorry about that. We had no idea. A shame.
Ah yes, The Daily Practice – there’s such amazing theory regarding all that, which will come out one day, I bet, but the actual experience of it is real magick. Seems like nothing, but is so powerful.
