Magickal Protection FAQ

Magickal Protection by Damon Brand

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: I read that this book uses demons. Is this true?

A: No, of course not. It’s mostly angelic magick, but there will always be people who spread disinformation to scare you away from practical magick. Also, the Master Protection ritual calls on the Genius Spirits which are neither angel or demon, and this has confused some people. These genius spirits, which can be thought of as personified virtues, are known as The Genii of the Twelve Hours, and are described in the Nuctemeron, attributed to Apollonius of Tyana from the First Century AD. (This was made known to English readers through a translation by Eliphas Levi in his 1897 book Transcendental Magic.) Some people assume that if it’s not an angel, it must be a demon, but this is far from the truth. People who have actually used the magick report real and lasting results, so don’t let armchair occultists put you off.

Q: Will these banishings frighten off the spirits from my other magick?

A: No. If anything, banishing and protection rituals clear out the spiritual and psychic dross, and make your magick powers more intense. You will get better results from all your magick if you use Magickal Protection.

Q: Things got worse after I started the magick? Did it go wrong?

A: Probably not. This is very powerful magick, but if you were trying to stop a particular individual, or even a group, from harming you, there can sometimes be resistance, and the resistance can manifest as more insults, attacks, worse tempers and other displays of inner turmoil. This isn’t usually the case – most of the time the magick just works -but when there is a particularly stubborn, evil or wilful person who is intent on keeping power or control over you, they may sense the magick weakening them (without knowing it’s magick) and retaliate or resist. Although it’s difficult to see this as a good sign, it can genuinely be a sign that the magick is working well. If this type of worsening happens within a few days of your ritual, take it as a good sign, and either repeat or continue the magick, knowing that when people react in this way it means they are closed to having their oppressive power taken away from them. Your magick will win.

Q: Does this protection work against hexes, curses and forms of magick from other countries and cultures.

A: Yes it does.

Q: Should I banish after each ritual I perform?

A: There is no need to, but you are free to do so.

Q: You say that Yohach faces forwards, but what direction does Kalach face?

A: It’s open to interpretation, which is why the book says you can let any image arise. Some people like to picture Kalach facing away from them. For others, it works best if Kalach faces forwards. Rarely, but occasionally, people find Kalach looks off to the left. Rather than making a conscious decision, let the image of the angel arise spontaneously, if you can, and this will give you the best results. It’s fine if the direction changes with each working. If you can’t make the image arise spontaneously, then just picture Kalach facing forwards. For Yohach, always keep the angel facing in the same direction that you are facing.

Q: In the Master Protection Ritual how do I imagine my own immortality?

A:  I like to think of immortality as the continual rebirth we experience as we develop, spiritually and magickally, according to the changes in our lives. This is quite easy to imagine. You can perceive yourself as somebody capable of adaptation and change.

Q: How do I pronounce…?

A: There’s a full section in appendix covering pronunciation. For additional thoughts on this matter see Pronunciation FAQ.

Q: How often should I repeat the Master Protection Ritual?

A: This is covered in the chapter called How To Use This Book.

Q: What do you mean by ignite the talisman? Do I have to set it on fire?

A: No, you need to read the chapter The Workings of Protection, which explains this in full.

Q: I couldn’t see the sigil to activate the Sword Banishing in my ebook. Why?

A: This mystery is still under investigation. Every test we’ve done indicates that the sigil is in the book, and is visible, but two readers have said they can’t see it. While we continue to look into this, if you need to, you can get a copy of the sigil by clicking here.

  1. Hi Adam,

    I’ve just purchased the book and did the Sword Banishing. The odd thing is, when I imagined the angel to my right, he was a very tall version of a good friend and the angel to my right, started off as a squid :/ This then changed into a big light elongated ellipse. Are these okay? Thank you!


  2. I just started the Sword banishing ritual last night and the MPR and feel the power already! When I was doing both rituals, a couple of things happened. During the Sword banishing ritual, as I said the name of OZEE-ELL, and visualised the star expanding, as I closed my eyes, I saw what seemed to be the vision of a face – blazing in white light. Only for a split second. It was just a face with no hair but I felt it was an Angel being. I could just about make out eyes, nose and mouth, but it was all blazing with bright white light. It didnt frighten me though – it made me feel sort of powerful and peaceful at the same time. I’ve not worked with these angels before – is this a sign of contact?
    Also, when doing the Master protection ritual, when calling on Save us and saying the words to grant me power to see beauty – when I paused to think about it, I heard a male voice say very clearly into my head ‘You will be, but you must first see your own.’ Again, I wondered if this could be the Angel really speaking to me? I am a bit clairaudient and have had this happen a few times with people who have passed on, but never an Angel before. It did make me smile inwardly though because it’s as if this Angel knew what some of my struggles are. I’m having trouble with self confidence over the way I think I look to others – particularly a man I am currently seeing. And generally. So the advice makes total sense But it’s strange as I was doing the ritual for general protection and to try and shift my energy as it’s been a low period for me lately, with a lot going on and a family bereavement recently. But it’s like this Angel saw a lot of what has been going on inside me lately regarding my own sense of self. I’m so grateful to have discovered the Gallery of Magick books – they are truly remarkable! I’m also working with the Greater Words of Power and will start the 72 Angels of Magick also. Thanks to you all for making this knowledge available.


    1. Oh yeah, that’s a big sign of contact. You can work for years and feel nothing – absolutely nothing, and get results. That’s the way it is for a lot of people who’d love some more noticeable effects. But if you’re open to this sort of thing, then yes, that’s contact. But, you get contact even if there’s no obvious response. If you do it again and seen nothing, always assume the contact is certain.

      When you’re given a message so directly during a protection ritual, I’d say take heed – how and when, and how you work out exactly what it means, well, that might take time. But it’s potent. Sabrus is defined as a genius spirit rather than an angel, and this is to do with the idea that these spirits have a little more ‘personality’ I suppose, than most angels. But they are ‘personified virtues’, and as such have the same presence as angels, the same style and quality of power as angels. The classifications are just that – classes imposed by lots of thinkers. The experience of the genius spirits, when it happens, is like the presence of an angel, and so with the theory aside I think it’s fair to think of them as angelic. But, yes, for some their additional personality can lead to more direct messages.


      1. Thank you so much for your thoughts and advice – it is very much appreciated. While I am not new to magic per se, I am new to this style of it and of calling on these beings. I’ve worked with Hoodoo style magic for a few years and have some success, but I have become more interested in all different forms of Magick. I feel this way of working is taking me to a higher level. I am so far really enjoying the process of learning this style of working. For a long time the idea of traditional ceremonial magick seemed so complicated and fussy that it didn’t appeal to me. I started off with Hoodoo as it’s relatively simple but effective. Now it’s great to find the GOM texts as they have made this type of magic simpler also.


        1. I get that! I have a love/hate with ceremonial – the full on rituals can be a real thrill. But, hey, it’s like putting on a performance at the local theatre – lots of costumes and prep and then maybe you don’t even get an audience. What we try to do now, in the books, is the same level of result, of contact, but without needing too many of the complications. Glad it’s working out for you.


  3. Hello Adam , I have a concerned. I have been performing the master ritual for 19 days. I admit poor planning from my part, I went out with my hubby and returned home pass midnight. Do I need to start again? What do you recommend me to do? Thank you for your guidance.


  4. To the great genius Mastho thanks for making me see the TRUTH (too personal to put here). Just writing it down here as an act of gratitude to the spiritual beings I call upon.

    Made me realize, money sometimes is secondary & TRUTH can be a matter of life & death, betrayal & integrity. What good does it do if you have all the money in the world but living a lie (worst living a lie with someone trying to deceive you?!). *applies to romantic, business relationships & ESP. “friendships”* remember Jesus was betrayed by a “friend”.

    Mr. AB 😀 If I wasn’t able to reply to the other messages from you – be patient 🙂 I’m dealing with a lot things right now. I though magick is just about hocus pocus & broomsticks & dancing naked under the moonlight hahahaha. Never thought one day I wouldn’t even recognize myself in the mirror (alchemical process) – but the caveat is: I like my new me, with much gratitude. S.M.888


    1. Good to hear!

      Don’t worry about replies – I barely get time to get to this site at the moment. Busy days! But I found your message about the copyright issue (buried in the spam folder). Thanks. Dealt with.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Oh Mr.AB I’m pretty sure you have an idea of how powerful the words we use on all the G.O.M’s books & all the spiritual beings (multiplied by intent etc). Case in point? How would I even stumble upon that copyright infringement on Magickal Cashbook?! :O I can’t barely go to the gym lately because I’m buried in Grad school work, much alone – find a person riding on D.Brand’s coattail & profiting from it (just way too much : highway robbery). Mastho has been making me see things, sometimes things I won’t even ask for, or things that won’t even cross my mind from the get go – then after pondering on things I would see the relevance of it the genius of it.

        Some TRUTHS are devastating though: I went back home in NJ for a visit after living here in EU for 5 years ( a lil “voice” told me : check your husband’s email.) In my rational head “WHY? – his emails?! , for what?” after all universities are good at numbing out intuition & sometimes almost successful making a person “intellectual”. At that time it didn’t make intellectual sense. LO & BEHOLD, that Judas has been cheating. THANKS MASTHO 😀 I was devastated, affected my school temporarily BUT at that point I was already armed with the G.O.M masters’ wisdom & skills.

        Be careful what you wish for (as they say), but at this point in my life – I’d rather take a risk than be sorry 😀 hahahahaha, with much gratitude, S.M.888


  5. The very first time I use the sword banishing and the grand protection ritual, I feel so in peace and some kind of confidence arise from nowhere. I have been practicing Magik from other magical orders, but now, I feel more powerful when I start using this book, ” MAGICKAL PROTECTION” I feel my consciousness change dramatically.


  6. My shared art studio space keeps getting broken into – probably by teenagers. There has been theft and now a big broken window. I’m wondering if I should use the “Protect Your Business” or “Protect Your Home”? The reason I ask is that it’s not completely a business….but not a primary home either. I guess there needs to be a “Protect Your Art Studio” section!


  7. Adam, I have to share this with you and the GOM. Today, 1-24-17. My sister called me to let me know that the lady who’s giving her hard time at work approached her very serene and friendly, to let her now that she will do her best to make this work/relationship with her workout. For me, this is MIND BLOWING! I have no words. This is officially my FIRST…first working that I can actually say IT WORKED!!!! it worked guys!!
