This page is for questions about Magickal Attack.

Q: The Master Curse didn’t appear to work. How long should it take?

The Master Curse is extremely effective, and reliably so, but after twelve days of magickal effort you probably want to see an obvious and fast result or it can get frustrating. As Gordon says, the magick works (its been working for many people for a long, long time), but it can be ‘subtle, harsh or brutal.’ Discerning which of these is never easy, and it can be that the Master Curse is taking great effect, exactly as expected, but the target of your attack hides the result from you. After all, the sort of person that is deserving of such attacks is often deceitful and an expert at manipulating emotions and hiding the truth. It is quite possible that the mild and calm person you see is undergoing great turmoil. Indeed, one sure sign that the curse is working can be that the target becomes calmer than usual. If your enemy seems stronger, more steady and at peace, you can be certain that the magick is working, and this response is a desperate attempt to hide the pain. Often, you see subtle signs. Sometimes, a total collapse and the target descends to regretful weakness. Part of the power of this magick is the relief you feel when it works well, so if you see nothing, it can be frustrating. What you may notice, even if nothing else is obvious, is that the target has less power over you, and that if you are willing to notice it you feel free, powerful and at ease after the ritual. It may begin to work immediately, or the effects may simmer and stir over many weeks or months. As with all magick, timing is entirely down to circumstances, and timing is the last thing you should focus on. Sometimes the results are clear and obvious; there are many reviews of the book where readers allude to this. At other times, nothing may be obvious. And of course, let’s be honest, sometimes magick fails. So do aeroplanes. A shame, but true. Gordon, quite rightly states that, ‘This magick works,’ but he never says, ‘This magick is guaranteed to work every time under all circumstances.’ There are many reasons that magick can fail from time to time. If the target has protection in place, then it’s not that there’s any failure, but that you are in a war of attrition. If you lust for result too much, that can scupper things. There are many posts on this site that can help. And note that, despite its power, it may be that to get the magick to work you need to target your magick, attacking from many sides. (Read this site thoroughly for ideas that get magick to work.) And hopefully, somewhere along the road you will find peace. Of all our books, this one is (at the last count) the one with the highest percentage of positive reviews, so you can trust that the magick does work. Focus on that trust and relax, knowing your target is feeling the effects, and you are much more likely to get the result you seek than if you let frustration rule you.

Q: I don’t care about revenge but want to stop somebody from hurting me. Can this book help?

A: Of the Master Curse, Gordon says that it “destroys your victim’s ability to operate successfully in the world.” It’s not revenge, but a way of stopping a person from harming you. You can make them so weak and regretful that they no longer hurt you. 

Q: How often should I perform The Ritual To Wield Power?

A: It can be performed at your discretion. Performing it once with great intensity can set you up for a considerable time. In The Lesser rituals, however, you are instructed to repeat the ritual each time you work the magick, due to the fact that no other constraints are present in the rituals. When it comes to The Greater Rituals and The Workings of Silence, do you feel you have the authority to command angels and demons? If your initial performance of the ritual gives you the conviction to continue, do so without repetition. If you have any doubts, repeating the ritual will remove those doubts. Even if you have no doubts, you may find that the ritual helps to empower a ritual by re-establishing your sense of command, while firing up your imagination. In such cases, The Ritual To Wield can be performed every time you work a ritual. It is not required for Disruption Magick.

Q: Can The Ritual To Wield Power be used with other forms of magick?

A: In any ritual where you work with angels or demons, this ritual will ensure that the spirits respect your authority. The magick can work without this ritual, of course, which is why the ritual isn’t included in every book, but it can be used with other rituals. You can use it before beginning a series of rituals, or every day that you perform a ritual; the choice is yours, and you should be led by your intuition. Magick doesn’t have to be complicated, so if you get good results without this ritual, don’t feel obliged to add it in unless directly instructed – but at the same time you are free to use it if you so wish.

Q: What about karma and magickal backlash?

A: This is non-issue and is addressed fully in the book. If you are uneasy with the subject, do not use this magick.

Q: In the Ritual to End a Relationship, do I perform it twice a day, or just once?

The ritual should be performed once a day, either before sunrise or after sunset (for thirty-three days).

Q: Why do you use angels to constrain the demons? Can’t I just work with demons?

A: There are many systems for working with demons and you are free to use those if you choose. Some traditions employ angels to constrain demons, and that method is used here, because it is safe and affords ready contact. Read about Rudd, if it interests you.

Q: Can I use this magick against a group of people?

A: Yes, but it is often worthwhile directing your attack at individuals who are important members of the group, to undermine the group.

Q: What do I do with the paper from the ritual To Regain the Upper Hand?

A: You can make a ceremony of burning or burying, or even storing the paper somewhere secret so that you remain aware of it, on a very subconscious level. Or you can think of the magick as over and done, and just trash the paper, as it’s nothing more than paper.

Q: Is Gordon writing more books?

A: He has no plans to write more books.

Q: Why doesn’t Gordon respond to questions personally?

A: Gordon takes a keen interest in the success of his readers, but has no interest in the daily interactions that take place online.

  1. Hello again…..
    Is there any ritual which can not only dis-power your enemy but have them do ur bidding???

    Thanks n regards

    • It’s rare to have complete control over another, but Gordon will publish a book on influence, which can go a long way.

      • When is the planned publication date? I want this book immediately.
        My objectives included enslavement.
        I think Mr. Winterfield has led a very fulfilling life as a master of black magic.
        His book Attack Magic is one of the best I have ever read — and this includes all the so-called modern grimoires from the usual “dark” publishing houses.
        Your Coven is doing great work.

        • It was recently decided not to announce publication dates until they are only weeks away.

      • I can’t wait for this book to come on publication & more success on the release in advance 🙂 I see everyone at G.O.M as my wonderful teachers.

  2. Hey there…..can we use the magical attack on behalf of another person if the person, gives permission or ask us to do so, to help them??

    As always i m grateful for the work you all put out for people like me who are in serious need to.protect self n family from &/or silence or bind enemy….

    • I usually say no to this, because it requires your personal energy, your anger in relation to the attack. However, it can be done if you are able to generate the required emotional energy. I would say that, given your connection, you would be able to do so.

      • That is, you can imagine how this person affects the others, but also how the person affects you, how you feel as a result. I hope that makes sense.

        • Thank you, I had the exact question. I have the other person’s permission (my son) and I have a very emotional attachment to this person and have always felt what he feels.

  3. When performing The Ritual To Wield Power can you take your sees off the sigil when reading the words I have the kindle version and do you have to read the words in a certain rhythm? Thank you for the help.

    • No special rhythm is required, or the book would say so. It helps to have the sigil within sight at all times, and to memorise the words. Yes you can glance away, but ideally learn the words. You may close your eyes to visualise as described, but having the sigil within sight is best. The book says, “If you’re using an ebook, you may need to write out the words by hand, unless you can find a way to display both the text and image at the same time. With a minimal amount of discipline, you can memorize the words, and that is what I would advise.”
