Magickal Cashbook by Damon Brand
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I noticed that the cover of Magickal Cashbook was changed in early Feb 2016. Are the contents the same as before?
A: Not entirely, but you don’t need to buy the new version as the changes are very minor. If Amazon consider the changes major they update the e-book for everybody, but they haven’t done that in this case, because mostly it’s just a slight re-ordering of information. A few words have been changed, to reflect my current practice, but it is nothing that requires you to purchase the book again. What you have will work. The latest version of the sigil, which has become more effective over time, can be found here.
Q: Who is the spirit Nitika?
A: Nitika is neither an angel or demon, but is thought of as a genius spirit or ‘personified virtue’. Nitika is a very gentle yet powerful spirit, and is listed as one of The Genii of the Twelve Hours in the Nuctemeron, attributed to Apollonius of Tyana from the First Century AD. Nitika was made known to English readers through a translation by Eliphas Levi in his 1897 book Transcendental Magic. The magic of Nitika has been around for a long time, but remains relevant and workable today.
Q: Instead of paint, can I use colored card? Can I use lined paper in the cashbook? Can I use crayons or pencils? Which is the best product to use? Is a spiral bound book ok? Can I glue sigils to the cover?
A: Yes to all of these, and so long as the colors are approximately correct, it doesn’t matter what you use. Most importantly, you may need to read this article, to ensure you’re not overthinking things.
Q: What color should the spine of the Cashbook be?
A: It doesn’t matter, but you can avoid black as a tiny number of people found this affect results slightly. If it is black then simply paint it or tape over the spine if it concerns you. If it doesn’t bother you, it can be left black without any ill effects.
Q: If I print the sigils on white paper, do I need to color them as well? What size should they be? What color ink should I use?
A: No. The system is extremely robust and works easily. So long as you can see them, any size is fine. Any ink is fine. Again, please see this article to avoid overthinking or worrying about the details.
Q: I made a mistake/spilt some paint, when making the Cashbook. Should I start again?
A: If you can still see all the text and the sigil, don’t worry about minor mistakes. It’s not a sacred item, but a tool. So long as you can perceive the sigil and the text, it will work. If you start again, there’s no harm done. A casual confidence is vital, and is far more important the precision.
Q: When I’ve finished with a Cashbook, how do I dispose of it?
A: Stop thinking of it as a magickal item.When it no longer feels magickal to you, it is safe to trash it as your would any other notebook – this might take a second, or a few days. If it never feels unmagickal to you, you can wrap it in black cloth, put it in a box, or something similar, and leave it for a few months where it won’t disturbed. When you come back to it, the book should feel quite ordinary and can be disposed of in the trash.
Q: I just received $2400, but I used magick to get $2300. Is this coincidence or a magickal result?
A: Magickal results are usually close to the amount you ask for, so yes, this is a magickal result.
Q: I just received the exact amount I asked for, but as an increase to my credit card limit? Is this magick?
A: It could be, but you may need to ask Nitika to ensure the debt can be paid. If you are the sort of person who is able to pay off your credit card, every month, you can welcome this. If not, and if your credit card accrues debt, then you should follow up this result by asking Nitika for money to enable your credit card to be paid off in full. That way, you can use the ‘money’ that’s been made available. This quirky twist seems to happen when it’s the easiest way to get ‘money’ in your hands, but most people find it only happens once. Treat it as a sign that you’ve made contact with Nitika and keep working.
Q: But couldn’t it just be coincidence? Wouldn’t I have got the money anyway?
A: Magick usually works by shifting coincidences in your favor. If you dismiss coincidence then you are dismissing your magick. Enjoy your results and you’ll get more. Also note that often (but not always) results come after three days, three weeks or three months. Keep good records and you may see this pattern in your results.
Q: I seemed to get a magickal results, but it wasn’t the exact amount I asked for. Should I wait, or start a new ritual?
A: If the result felt magickal, consider it complete and start a new ritual.
Q: I tried to get $10,000, but nothing happened.
A: When starting out, aim for an unexpected amount that would surprise you if it turned up out of the blue, but don’t aim for something impossible. The amount you aim for might be $20 or $10,000 depending on your current earnings. If you’re poor, $10,000 won’t turn up first time. Start small and learn to trust the magick. I get emails from people who have built up slowly, and they are now attracting large amounts. I also get emails from poor people who tried to win $10,000 in the first week, and that will never work. Always push the magick just a little beyond your current possibilities, but don’t aim for something that’s too far from your current life. Many small improvements are better than one big win.
Q: You seem to ignore astrology. Should I time my workings to fit more closely with planetary influences?
A: If it matters to you or worries you, then go ahead, but I know that astrology turns off a lot of beginners, and I’ve tried to streamline the system so that it’s connected to the right astrological currents without needing exact timing. Keep it simple when you can.
Q: Somebody said you were using the wrong sigil on the cashbook.
A: Everything in the book is correct. In an early version one sigil was mislabeled, for a few days, and that is all. The sigil has always been correct.
Q: If Nitika is a good-natured spirit, why has your sigil been constructed to constrain?
A: Beginners will use this book without the usual magickal safety-nets (such as banishings), and Nitika has free will. The sigil has been constructed to keep things safe, and to guide and encourage Nitika.
Q: Is Nitika male or female?
A: It depends who you ask. You may get a sense of this as you go. Personally, in years of contacting this spirit, I have sensed no gender.
Q: The book says to ask for dollars, but I am in in another country. What should I do?
A: Simply write in your own currency.
Q: I can’t find or understand the meaning of NAH-KAH.
We use the Hebrew word NawKar, which can be pronounced NAH-KAH. (For those with an interest in Hebrew, this is spelt Nun Kaph Resh.) This word usually means ‘recognized’, but when stated in the active form it can mean ‘to recognize’. So you are saying that you ‘will recognise’ God. Google the phrase “Strong’s Hebrew H5234” for more details.
Q: Is it ever worth doing the Cashbook ritual for more than 11 days?
A: There are a few reports of this working. In general, I believe it is better to do magick for a short period of time, let go and move on. If you do a lot of magick you let go of the results more readily, and the results are more likely to manifest. Some people, however, report success when they consistently make the request day after day until it manifests. Feel free to try this, but at this stage, consider it to be experimental. Also, ensure that this approach doesn’t lead to frustration or disillusionment – only try this if you have a calm confidence, and a detachment from the need for a result.
Q: Do I create a new circle on a new page each day, or a new circle on the same page?
A: Please re-read the chapter called Using Your Cashbook to Attract money, and follow the steps exactly as set out. You create a new circle each day on the same page until the ritual is complete.
Q: I’ve been doing the ritual for a few days and no results yet. What’s going on?
A: The more patient you are, the faster results come. When you can genuinely wait a year, you get results in hours. If you want results in hours, you might have to wait a year. Never write off a ritual as failed, because you never know when it will bring you a result. When you complete a ritual, move on to something else, and avoid lusting for the result. I often talk about the magick working instantly or in days because often, that’s exactly how it is. But it’s important not to get trapped into expecting an instant results.
Q: I tried for some time and got no results? It works for others, so what’s going on?
A: There are many posts on here that can help. The most important are:

If you have rad these, it may be worth considering your level of frustration. If there’s any sense of frustration, it’s worth giving up to an extent. This doesn’t mean abandoning the magick altogether, but truly letting go in the sense that you no longer care about the result and no longer try to get one. When there’s zero frustration, the doors to magick open. If the only way to get to zero frustration is to stop, then stop. And then look back in a few months and see if something did turn up when you least expected it. But try to avoid thinking of it as failed. When you declare that magick has failed, you can seal that failure. Leave the way open for a result. Think of it as a work in progress that you’re leaving alone. I understand that you buy a book like this to make money, fast – which happens for many people – so it’s frustrating if it doesn’t work, but you will see lots of stories here and on the website where people found that something made the magick click for them. For many, it works instantly without effort. For others, the first result is the hardest, but once it comes, everything flows.
