Angels of Wrath FAQ


Ebook and paperback here:

This page is for questions relating to Angels of Wrath. 


Q: Is this the same as Magickal Attack? Which should I buy?

A: Magickal Attack uses a demonic master curse and methods from various traditions. This book works with angelic powers. You should use the Look Inside feature on Amazon to see which methods and ideas appeal to you most. The books cover some similar ground, but each contains a different approaches to this type of work.

Q: How can  it be right to use angels this way?

A: If you don’t like the idea of this type of magick, please don’t read it. There are many other books that work with ‘lighter’ magick. If you want a greater understanding of the principles behind this work, please do read the book. Gordon explains the philosophy behind it clearly. It is not intended to be cruel or harmful, but is there as a shield and weapon for those who are in need of such magick.

Q: I can read Hebrew and your pronunciations and letter choices aren’t always consistent. Why?

A: There are a couple of places in the book where a TS sound seems more appropriate than a Z sound, for example. Gordon has sourced the names from several texts, as described in the book, but what ends up being used is sometimes one visual spelling combined with a slightly different pronunciation. The lettering is also sourced from several volumes, and in some sigils you may see variations on a single spelling. None of this matters, of course. If you follow the instructions, it will work!

Q: What do all the words in the sigils mean?

A: They are divine names, angelic names and arrangements and encodings of such names, and thus cannot be translated.

Q: Gordon mentions not using a ritual against a parent. Is there a reason why?

A: That was a single example for a specific person. You can use the magick on anybody.

Q: Can I do several rituals at once?

You can, but it’s not the best way to go about this, because the absolute core of this book is sincerity, and several rituals performed one after another may lack the weight, depth and sincerity required by this magick. Note that the apparent simplicity can lead to doing the work without full conviction. Ensure you’ve fully understood the nature of the emotional states required at each point in the ritual. It makes sense to put some space between rituals (maybe a day or more), to acknowledge to yourself the sincerity of each request. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth being patient for a day or two.

Q: Do I have to keep the sigil within view at all times, even while speaking?

A: Gordon says, ‘The sigil should remain within view as you speak your command,’ so at that point, yes. When you speak the angelic names, the sigil should remain within your field of vision, but does not need to be looked at directly. Your main focus should be on the emotional changes, as described in the chapter Working The Words. If you’re using a device and can’t see the words at the same time as the sigil, you have two options. One is to reduce the text size (easy on most devices) so it’s all visible beneath the sigil. The other option is to write out the names you say out loud by hand. In most cases, it’s very easy to see everything on one page, because there aren’t many names to be read out.

Q: Which is more powerful, attack or protection? How can I protect myself against magick like this?

Imagine if somebody tried to sell you an impenetrable shield and a sword that could break through anything. It’s clear that neither could actually work as described, unless operated by the warrior in a specific way. We’ve often said that with attack, it’s a war of attrition, and that holds true; if excellent defences are in place, attacks will have to persist until the defences are down. For most of the population, there are never any defences, which is why attack magick works so well. With this book, the extent of effect is also down to the level of your sincere desire – that can break through many defences. But the debate about which is stronger, protection or attack, ignores that so much is not about which side you’re on and what magick you’re using, but about how well you read the book, performed the magick, choose the right magick for the situation, learned to allow results and worked with all those subtle aspects of magick that are revealed in the books . You can see that some people get saved from car crashes with magickal protection, and others call it useless, and this is not because of any objective power in the magick, but how it has been employed. Magick isn’t so simple that there can ever be an ultimate weapon or perfect defence. We shift and move with the circumstances. If you want to use this magick, you can see how it would work. If you genuinely believe somebody might use it against you, the defence is persistent use of Magickal Protection. It’s never a case of an immovable object and an unstoppable force, because personality and human expression affects the interpretation and expression of your personal magick.

Q: Can I mix this with other magick?

A: Please read the Practical Magick FAQ to get a general overview of how this works.

Q: Can I do this magick for somebody else?

A: I answered this in a question below, so will save myself some time by quoting what I wrote there: Let’s say your Uncle Tim has been made miserable by a man named Barry. OK, you are really annoyed at Barry and sincerely want him to suffer. So, yes, you can aim the ritual at Barry. But it’s your own feelings about this that count. You might be doing it to help Uncle Tim and make his life rosy, but the ritual has to be worked for your own sincere sense of justice. This could never be magick-for-hire; but if you sincerely want somebody to meet justice, and if it affects you on an emotional level even if indirectly, then yes. The ritual is performed the same way, and just aimed at that person, with your personal feelings about the situation and the change you require being at the forefront of the process.

Q: I felt a bit weird while doing the ritual, and even when it was finished. Is that normal?

A: Sometimes people find that working with this sort of energy can feel quite intense, but this lessens with time and is harmless. There is an overview here: A Touch of The Supernatural.

56 Comments on “Angels of Wrath FAQ

  1. Hi,

    Where I live I am getting a certain amount of harassment by a neighbour. This takes a physical form of damage to my garden and stones sometimes being fired at the roof of my house in the dark. My dowsing pendulum also tells me that at least one neighbour is doing some form of magic/curses against me. However I cannot be 100% certain who is firing the stone under the cover of darkness, and it is never really possible to prove whether someone is doing magick! I have used to good effect Magickal protection (Damon Brand) and also blinding and invalidation of magick (from Angels of Wrath) for the chief suspects – as none of these actually harm the suspects just stops them.

    So much for protection! But if I want to attack, i.e. cause judgement or punishment, it appears that this has to be done against a named individual. How do I do this if I cannot be 100% sure who the exact offenders are? I could use Sigil Magick where I could construct my own sentence and resulting sigil along the lines of:

    “Punish the person who fired a stone at my house on Easter Monday last year”

    Sadly my orgasms are not always powerful and I am worried that the resulting magick may also suffer! So is there a way to put an “if” statement into the magick in this book, so that when I have done the scan and speak my own command, I can speak a more generalized command as in the example I have given above. If so, can more generalized commands be used with magick from other GOM books?

    Many thanks in advance for your help

    • Good to hear the magick has worked where it has. You could definitely use sigil magick, but if you have Magickal Servitors by Damon Brand you could also try that – people get different levels and types of results with servitors, and they can be great; I think a servitor would be great for this, because they are all about being tuned to your desires. You have some fine tuning here which isn’t great for some magick, whereas a servitor could actually go on a ‘seek and stop’ mission! Generalized commands can work, but it’s like spreading the butter too thinly. Too General and the magick doesn’t really know where to go or what to work on. Too specific, and sometimes you limit the chance of success – so if it’s asking for money, you’re better off asking for money from anywhere, or somewhere that’s changing and full of opportunity, rather than saying, ‘I want to win money next week,’ as the chances of that as so slim. Finding that balance between personal and general is tricky, but makes a difference. But that statement “Punish the person who fired a stone at my house on Easter Monday last year” is quite specific. It could work. But like I say, I’d try a servitor. This post says some of what I just said in a slightly different way, but might give you some ideas:

      Cheers, Adam

  2. 1. Can I use ‘Cause Memory Loss’ to make someone forget both past and future events or actions? I ask thus because Gordon only talked about using it to make someone forget future events.
    2. I had a bad alteration with my lover and I said so many bad things to her. Can I use this ritual to make her forget that fight so that peace can prevail between us?
    3. Does it erase memory of the event or action completely from the persons mind?
    Thank you.

    • Hi Dan. 1. Note that Gordon talks about “memory loss related to a specific time, place or subject.” He doesn’t specify past or future, so yes it applies to both.
      2. and 3. Yes you could use it for this, and that’s the idea; memories are sometimes completely gone, but often just lose significance. If there is something, such as a repeated conversation, or and outside input that acts as a reminder, it’s harder to eradicate something. But otherwise it can work. It might work best if you are also using magick to bring peace to the relationship – there are many rituals in The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise that help with peace and love between two people.

  3. My grandson was seven months old and my son’s ex was abusing him. We could not prove it. The last time she argued with my son she put this healthy seven month old Angel near brain death! I now have custody but he’s on a ventilator g tube. He can’t talk walk or somE of smile. The courts charged her but won’t charge her with attempted murder in fact she won’t even get time. she is living life large and has moved on without scone thought. Court is in july. Could a demon or Angel serve her true justice

    • I’m sorry to hear your story and hope that justice will be served without magick even being required. If you want to use magick, it’s difficult for me to know what to recommend, because I’m not sure what you’ve used or feel comfortable using. A lot of newcomers (as well as experienced occultists) have used Angels of Wrath, and I think some people like the fact that it’s powerful and just, without requiring you to call on dark forces. There is a ritual to bring judgement, but it only works on the guilt felt by the person you are targeting. So you might prefer to use other rituals, such as Punish an Enemy. Something like this, used ahead of the trial could work. You could try using a few (but not too many, as overkill just feels like desperation) to make sure this person is weakened and bound in several ways. If you do use the book I’d advise you to have a good read of the main FAQ too, and some of the articles linked to there, to answer any doubts or queries you might have about magick. – Adam B
