The 72 Angels of Magick FAQ

angels72

Q: What happened to Magickal Angels and The Greater Magickal Angels?

A: It made sense to offer both books together, for a lower price. The 72 Angels of Magick replaces those books, but contains the same material.

Q: Somebody online said this book calls on Azrael, the Angel of Death. They said the book can bring death as a payment. Is this true?

A: It’s complete fiction, designed to scare you. If you see how many people the book has actually helped, and if you feel the presence of angels, you know this is the case. Read the book and  you will see that the ritual calls on Arzel, who is an aspect of the archangel Raziel – there is nothing to do with Azrael. The angels do not punish you, and only the most inexperienced and frightened person would claim this to be the case. Mostly, magick books fall into the hands of those who understand the power and can use it well. Occasionally, these books fall into the hands of the terrified, and they do some wretched online research, get confused and become afraid and spread disinformation, and then blame all their woes on magick. If you read the book and practice the magick, you’ll know that none of this scaremongering is remotely true.

Q: Can you help me to choose the right angel?

A: It’s essential that you develop the skill of connecting with the angels, so please see How To Find An Angel.

Q: Do I really have to do the rituals for 11 consecutive days? Do I have to start on a Thursday?

A: Ideally, yes. If you absolutely can’t, due to other commitments, then miss a day and then keep going until you have worked at least 11 days, ideally finishing on a Sunday. If you can’t start on a Thursday, start on a Monday. If you can’t finish on a Sunday, finish on a Thursday. If you can’t do any of these, just try to work the ritual as often as possible (but no more than once a day) until you get results, but be aware that 11 consecutive days, starting on a Thursday, is the best way to get results.

Q: Why 11 days and why a Thursday? Words of Power works so quickly, why do I need to do 11 days and start on a Thursday?

A:  It gives you time to settle into the magick and – sometimes – feel your needs change during the course of the ritual. Also, magick works through both directions of time, and the effects are cumulative. When making direct contact, this is the approach that has worked the best – and although there are many theoretical reasons, this is based largely on exerpeicen. Also, angelic work is usually aimed at making large changes, that affect you as well as the world around you, so a longer length of time is better. Also, as this is direct contact with angels, spending 11 days gives you more chance of sensing the angel, making contact or getting feedback on your result. Some people feel nothing,and that is fine, while others feel something straight away. but overall, doing 11 days gives you more time to form a relationship with the angel you are contacting.

Q: Hayiel and Hariel are both said to improve magickal power, so which should I use?

A: Hayiel is noted to provide greater control or precision. Hariel is more about increased energy. If you need more energy, then Hariel. More control, Hayiel. You may not need either. The listed powers are only guides to get things moving, but to get a sense of how the angels differ it’s worth considering their other listed powers. That gives you a feel for their practical potential.

Q: Is there any disadvantage to calling on several angels at once if I have several minor requests? I don’t want to do the full ritual five times.

A: Angels will respond to minor requests – but the approach to angelic evocation in the angel books is aimed at more major requests. If somebody speaks the ritual and then calls on five major angels to change five major areas of their life in a major way, it shows a lack of focus and dedication. But if the changes you seek are quite minor, you can roll it into one ritual and call on several angels at once.

Q: If I call on several angels at once, do I have to complete the full ritual every time, or can I just do the opening, and then call on each angel one after the other?

A: I prefer to do the complete ritual from beginning to end. If I’m calling on three angels – even if they are all working on the same task for me – I will call one, wait a few hours, call the next and so on. If you are pressed for time you can condense the process by making the opening call  (i.e The Master Ritual), and then calling on each angel in turn. Some people find great success with this approach so feel free to try it out.

Q: Will this book help with contacting my Holy Guardian Angel (HGA)?

A: Not directly, but all efforts to contact angels help by making you more aware and sensitive to angelic response. The HGA book will give you the methods you need when it is released.

Q: I get a sense that I need to continue the ritual for more than 11 days. Is that OK?

A: Yes. There is no need to perform the ritual for more than 11 days unless you sense a strong urge, but if you do feel the urge to maintain contact there is no reason why you shouldn’t. Aim to conclude on a Sunday if possible, unless the angel contacts you directly and tells you otherwise.

Q: I read a PDF that said contacting these angels is dangerous, and that I should purify myself and fast before attempting contact. Is this true?

A: This sort of disinformation is used to frighten people away from the secrets of the inner circles. Angels help the weak, filthy and the poor, so you don’t need to fast, bathe or grovel to be heard by an angel.

Q: Should I sit, kneel or stand?

A: Remember that you’re not praying, so if kneeling makes it feel like praying that might be the wrong mindset. Otherwise, there’s no problem with kneeling, standing or sitting.

Q: Do the angels always work for our highest good?

A: No, they work according to what you ask for. Angels can be commanded to wreak havoc, and they will do so. That’s what makes magick different to praying – you are choosing the path for yourself, and then using the spirit forces to manifest your will.

Q: The psalms in the book don’t match the psalm list I found on the internet. Why?

A: The internet is not always the most reliable source when it comes to the occult. There are many traditions, and what you’ve found may indeed be accurate for one tradition or another. The verses we use appear in other texts and traditions and are correct and as intended. Each verse contains seven words, and contains the first three letters of the angel’s name, spelt out in Hebrew, buried within the verse. Given that an angel name consists of these letters with a word-ending that equates to god, the entire angel name is encoded within the verse, because each verse also contains the name of god. We find these to be the most effective verses, but you are free to use your own if you prefer.

Q: I can read Hebrew and the names don’t match the pronunciations in a couple of cases. Why?

A: If these were mistakes they would be very easy to rectify, but these pronunciations are intentional. Everything in this book is correct and as intended. Some reviewers claim that the letters used in the sigils are incorrect (because they don’t match the pronunciation), but this is quite deliberate and everything works when you actually put the magick into practice. There’s a full explanation on this page.

Q: When I charge the Shem Talisman, or an angelic sigil, is it charged forever or do I need to do this each time?

A: Once is enough. Some people feel the need to reconnect with a sigil, after some months or years, but this is a personal matter. You shouldn’t feel obliged to do it more than once.

    1. That article I pointed you to the other day is a good guide – it gives you a vibe for how to approach it. Also from the main FAQ (https://galleryofmagick.com/the-gallery-of-magick-faq/):

      Q: Do the spirits get annoyed if we keep pestering them with requests?

      A: No.

      It’s a short answer, huh? Well, that’s because it’s true. Of course, you need to mean what you’re asking for. If you really want it, and you’re really working for it in the real world, you won’t be ignored. But if you’re piling everything on at once out of impatience, and not really caring deeply about what you’re asking for, the angel will probably only respond to the thing that matters the most and ignore the rest. For now. Thinking about that idea is better guidance than any numbers/timings I could give you.

  1. Hello. Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but my question is, will the magick be any less effective if our copy is used? My friend had an extra one that I bought from her. I’ve had great success with Angels of Alchemy which I bought new, but for some reason I don’t feel as confident with 72 Angels. Might be that I’m still getting used to the longer process, and I’m certain she didn’t curse it or anything. Just in my head? Thanks!

    1. The longer process does take getting used to for some people, and it’s more likely that. Used copies of the paperbacks are fine! Glad to hear Alchemy worked well for you. Cheers, Adam B.

  2. I am horrible with visualization and emotional alchemy. Even thinking about moments, that should invoke certain feelings, it don’t. I am not the most emotional person, and often tragic things I’ve experienced I’ve dealt with. Will this greatly, ruin my spell work with the Angels?

    Like

    1. People often say they are rubbish, but you;re probably better than you think. You may not be very emotional, but you must feel something – otherwise you’d have no desire. When a desire is satisfied, that feeling is relief. It can be tiny, so long as it’s a change. In a ritual, you need no visuals, and you only need to get one tiny feeling and change it to another tiny feeling. For some the feelings are huge, but it’s the shift in feelings that counts. If the angels can sense that, you’re there.

  3. When I was performing a ritual with vevaliah, I modified my request alittle (wordings and to a more generic, than specific) after 1st two days of the ritual , Do you think it would affect the results and the angel would understand? It still gave me lots of relief out of it. Also, how often can I repeat the angelic vevaliah ritual on the same person? I ‘m asking because the ritual gave me so much relief and peace (it is like a mode for me to vent my anger and getting inner peace)? And no, I am not lusting over the results as I have not checked whether the results have come already (I know that vevaliah is working hard on my case) and everyday I just imagining the bad stuff that is happening to my abuser (this is not lusting for results I hope)

    1. Yes, the angel will understand. As for how often to repeat, try this: https://galleryofmagick.com/2016/10/20/the-abundance-of-magick/ Doing the 11 days and feeling the relief is great, but the aim is to get relief after the ritual is done. You can then repeat when things change. i.e if you feel the need because there’s no relief. But better to aim for an actual and permanent relief than to use the ritual for a temporary fix, if that makes sense.

    1. You can include them all, but take the time to name them all (assuming you know the names), or a least name the ‘ringleader’ who will have the most influence on the others. The moment of alchemy, where you feel the change has occurred – you can apply that feeling to the entire group. You don’t have to feel it for each individual.

  4. Beside master curse from magickal attack, angel vevaliah from 72 angels of magick and arathron from master works of chaos magick, are there any other magick from your books that I can use to destroy my enemy who had destroyed my life in all ways? I know it sounds childish but I need revenge to get innerpeace. I am asking because this is what I can find in your books so far and maybe I have missed out something else. Thank you in advance for your guidance.

    Like

    1. Omemiah would help. I don’t see this as childish, because a need for revenge can grow from a palace of great pain, I find it’s most effective to focus on the peace you’re seeking, rather than the destructions you’re wielding. I know it’s a subtle distinction, but the danger is that if you’re over focused on the person who’s harmed you, they are being given power, and yours is being taken away. With the Master Curse, for example, the aim is to reach peace. You seem to have grasped this, so all may be well, but I emphasise it so that you don’t become too focussed on the needing a specific and particular result in order to find that peace. Do all that you can to get there, but don’t miss out the complementary work that is equally important. For example, Yabamiah and the wiper to find inner harmony. Hariel for a peaceful pathway. Pahaliah for balance. And that’s just from one book. If you look to The 72 Sigils, there are many, many rituals aimed at finding inner peace. Also in The Angels of Alchemy, lots that you could use.

      We often say that you need to allow a result to come any way it can. The trick is to know the result you really want. Is it inner peace, or is it revenge. if you can actually get the inner peace another way, would you take that way? If you attempt all the peace magick I have mentioned, you might get there regardless of the extent of the attack. And also, in a beautiful irony, attack magick tends to punish those who have wrong you, far more effectively when you are able to achieve peace along the way. It releases you and makes them more vulnerable to your attack. So I’d say to focus on that, as well as using the attacks you have planned.

      1. Thank you. You are very wise as usual. I have learnt so much from you, your books and from the rituals. I have gotten relief everytime I perform a ritual from the angel vevaliah – everytime I feel wrong or anger from the person, I just can’t wait to perform vevaliah angelic spell as I know there is a great sense of peace that I get from doing revenge.

  5. Hey Adam,

    Could I evoke these angels using the same method (without the keys of course, seeing that these are a different set of angels) in the angels of alchemy? Or would I need to use a totally different method?

    Like

    1. Hello. Afraid not, because the keys are the key to that process, and we haven’t given the keys to these angels. A modified method is always advisable. We will publish something on this eventually, but it is many years away, I’m afraid. You can try more direct contact, as described in the book, and it works for some.

  6. Also – Question about alchemy, I don’t necessarily stick with the good feeling when going through the ritual with an angel. I sometimes experience mixed emotions but I say what I want. Going from “this feels bad” to “this would feel good” — but sometimes remembering other things that Felt bad and then sometimes feeling nervous about the “good” part. Is this okay or does it need to be more linear movement through emotions?

  7. Hello Adam! I am wondering if you will, could you offer guidance with some aspects of love and relationship-focused rituals in 72 angels. I have tried for a long time with love and been hurt many times, not to have a pity party but when I say hurt- it’s been bad. Words of Power brought someone into my life indirectly- I was “given a chance” to experience a relationship where the deepest desire of my heart which I never even knew, manifested. It emerged during the ritual as something said in my head over and over and then, the next day, a friend courted me unexpectedly… took a chance with me so to speak, and he said these words verbatim at an intimate moment. I took it as a sign and allowed him into my heart. It was then that I experimented with M Seduction- it really brought both of us a level of love making that I’ve never experienced. A gift to us both. It developed quickly into a relationship- amazing. Just perfect connection… but burned out too soon. The underlying factor that from the get go was known as a possible challenge, me not being of the same culture and religion, the thing that made it impossible for him to see a future. That I would be rejected by his family- he just couldn’t see it. We took time “apart” during which I suffered a lot, probably said a few things I shouldn’t, and he suffered too as his love was real.. during this time I also did the love ritual from that book. It was genuine though my pain likely also was conveyed and so I’m not sure what happened but he did chose to end it fully. I feel rejected, I have no clue his feelings anymore, feels like a weird dream. I don’t know where to go from here. I feel I may have put the wrong energy in and this is my fault. Perhaps it wasn’t forever but for sure he is a soulmate. I think the love was true. I know it was for me, in a way I never knew. In fact it was the day after the first ritual that he confessed it. But the pain of the whole thing did for sure harden me and that is an energetic block. I’ve softened now and think I am ready to endeavor to repair it. I just am unsure where to start. I know Yezelel would be helpful and I do not know if it’s enough to just work with this angel. It’s specifically said that this angel does not address the reasons for the separation and that they still need to be worked on. So how do I address that issue, of religion? I am willing (and actually very want to) to convert and he knows. I’ve thought of others (sorry if I don’t know the names) – Poiel to manifest a desire that seems impossible, because certainly the cultural decision he made, seems like something I am powerless to change, a huge obstacle, and also because I’ve been close to having love and need to break through the barrier, as is listed with those powers. Another angel who helps “Find a peaceful path” for not ruining ones reputation- here could be “interpreted” a bit to help find a path that could help his family accept me. But perhaps that would come later? Then there are angels who help to generate love when the person is afraid to live/commit. Lastly angels specific to love that is not seduction but for true relationship. I don’t know if you have suggestions but I would appreciate advice as I try to plan for the coming Thursday. I’m not sure if it’s okay to do one thing at a time- I don’t want to be “heady” about this and something that helped was to begin writing my ritual and feeling the transmuting. I just want to keep it to only a few angels, preferably one or two, and I am not sure if all angles have to be addressed or if us reuniting would be enough to start the process. Again the main issue is that of religious identity, that it’s something that he decided he needs in a partner. That his family would reject me. An age old tale,I know. Mind you.. I was never even given a chance to be brought in. I truly miss the friendship, the feeling of being so cared for, and the other thought I had would be to ask Poiel to bring this desire to my heart, say that I wish for my ex or someone who made me feel just as deeply cared for. But the heart wants what it wants .. you know? Is there an angel you might direct me to or a working which I haven’t thought of? Or is it possible that the love ritual needs time? It had several weeks. I think it was the wrong type of love maybe to try to enhance? The wrong energy.. I don’t know. He just is extra precious to me because I know he was brought to me, truly through the angels. I have “angels of love”.. I know I could do the soulmate workings but I feel like it’s worth it to give this one shot. Any advice would be appreciated. I know many people have the same longings and I think this is not an unusual situation in terms of cultural differences. I see it often. Thanks and blessings.

    1. Hello there. Tough problem. I’ve seen many friends go through this. Well, only three, but that feels like ‘many’ because it’s not an easy situation. When it comes to choosing an angel, have you read this: https://galleryofmagick.com/2015/08/11/how-to-find-an-angel/ It’s one of those things where it looks like we’re being lazy and unhelpful, but really, it’s more helpful to get you to make your own decisions. No matter how clearly you explain, I can’t guess what’s really going on under the surface; what desires, hopes and so on are all bubbling away and pulling you in different directions. What I can say is that although the heart wants what the heart wants, the heart can be a fickle beast, and that’s why the ritual in the soulmate book is useful – it takes the relationship to its limit, quickly. You get to see whether there is hope, and a reason to go on, or if it’s going to fizzle out. If I was to recommend anything it would be that, and any angels that can offer you support, clarity and that sort of thing, rather than trying to sway the situation itself until you’re absolutely certain of what you want.

      1. Thanks Adam. Sorry for the emotional post. I appreciate the article and the technique offered. More succinctly, i should have asked the following: do individual problems need to be addressed in logical sequence or are results cumulative? Regarding religion, or such a challenge, are there any angels that come to mind; I understand the need to chose an angel, just looking for an experienced perspective about which might work, for this type of obstacle, as sometimes the examples Damon wrote about in were ways of looking at things I wouldn’t expect. Lastly is it frowned upon to employ other systems of magic when working with kabbalistic /angelic magic (does it convey doubt.. or can it work in conjunction with angelic work). thank you.

        1. It doesn’t have to be in sequence, but sometimes that helps. Say you want to change somebody’s mind. First you might want to weaken then and make them tired. Or, depending on the situation, you might want to first make them happy and strong, so that their decision is more positive. It is entirely dependent on each situation, and that’s why I can’t offer more detail. You need to take the time to become deeply familiar with all the angelic powers. The act of reading about them is the beginning of magick, as you will sense connections and ideas that may not have occurred to you before. That is so much more valuable than me offering a suggestion. Takes more times, but is better. You can happily work other systems too. Other occultists may disagree with us on this, but we find it works fine. Obviously, it’s not great if the intentions clash, or if you’re calling for powerful and disruptive forces at the same time as very gentle forces – so it takes some thought. Generally, it can all work together.

  8. I am being tormented by an enemy who also has knowledge of Angel contact ( not sure where this person’s knowledge is derived from) Every time I task an Angel to protect or otherwise “advance” my enemy is able to redirect or disperse the Angel. Any ideas on how to deal with this? Any specific commands?

    Like

    1. In situations like this, the first question is always, ‘Are you sure the other person has this knowledge?’ I know it happens, for sure it happens – an enemy outwits you. But I’ve also seen many people assume their enemy is outwitting them when in fact the enemy is at home, having a nice cup of tea and has forgotten all about you, and the curse is effectively your own fear. I say all this to open the subject, not to say that this is happening, but to let you consider it, and make sure your evidence is sound. Because it’s easy to get caught up in the belief in the power of an enemy, and that just gives them power whether they want it or not. Sometimes, your magick is falling flat for another reason (all the reasons explored in the many posts on this site), and it’s not through anybody else’s attack.

      OK, let’s forget all that, and assume you’re completely right and this person has occult power – you know the situation better than me, so we’ll assume that’s the case. Now it comes down to how you want to tackle it. Some people would reach for Magickal Attack and bind the person, or even curse – it may be warranted, and if the person is once silenced and weakened in this way, the rest of your work will have room to move. Otherwise, ensure everything from Magickal Protection is in place, but you can also try to alternative method we’ve talked about here – in some of the books there are ways to make people feel warmer, to open up to you, to make enemies feel at peace. If a battle isn’t working out for you, aim to disarm the enemy with feelings of peace. It’s a lot to think about, but if this is a persistent problem then a creative approach might be what you need to get things shifting the way you want.

  9. Hi Adam, can I use Vevaliah to destroy the same person through 2 different rituals, let’s say done weeks apart? I am thinking to request Vevaliah to curse for ill health in one ritual and in the next ritual, requesting Vevaliah to curse the same person but for bad luck. I hope this is not lusting for results.

    1. Vevaliah can certainly be called on to enact wrath. The distinction you’re asking about is a minor one in real terms, which brings me to a touchy subject – when I took over this blog from Damon it was agreed with the entire group that the purpose of answering questions is not to give tuition, but nor is it merely to offer vague inspiration. These pages exist to refine what’s out there already, and to encourage magickal experience. What we can’t do, and what I really can’t do, is guide every step. You have you to do the magick, boldly and often, and you have to find your own path. All you need is in the books and on this site – the rest is probably, almost certainly, superfluous. Not always, but usually. The way Damon put this, bluntly, is that if somebody asks more than three questions a week, they’re avoiding the magick. I think you’re averaging at least one question a day. It may be out of fear, curiosity, something else – but when there are that many questions, my job is to stop answering them and to guide you to trust yourself and get into the magick. The sooner you work with it, and learn what works for you, and how magick feels for you, and where your focus is going to be, the sooner you will get the results you want. If I answer more questions, I’m actually delaying your magickal development, which can only come through experience. I understand that there is often a hunger to know more and more, but there comes a times when you should trust yourself and simply act. This made sound rude, cruel, uncaring or lazy, but trust me when it’s actually about handing over the reigns, which is such a vital step.

  10. Hello Adam,
    I am a single mom and am often exhausted by the time my night ends and I have the house to myself to do magick. Occasionally I fall asleep the moment I sit still and don’t awaken until after midnight. On those nights, should I be in the middle of an 11 day petition, should I just go ahead and do my magick from the night before, or must I just consider that a missed opportunity and move on to the next day? Do the angels feel I’m not genuinely commited when that happens? Do they give a margin for error? And if so, would it matter if I worked it at 12:15am or 3am? On some days I literally force myself to stay up and push through the ritual. However I’ve also fallen asleep on some nights (in ritual) when I’ve forced myself to do that. If for some reason it doesn’t work then I blame myself for not trying hard enough for having the energy to make it happen . How should I handle this?

    Thanks

    1. Hello. I’ve been there – a long time ago, and not as a single parent, but with the exhaustion and the lack of time.

      Doing what you can, when you can is all you need. The angels are, it’s true, sometimes quite harsh in their response to us – certainly not as gentle as we’d like. But they’re not mean. I can’t think of a better way of putting it. The ritual is about building some momentum to the feeling you’re putting across. Often, two or three rituals do it, and the eleven days help cement it. If you’re doing what you can, the angels will not judge. It’s more about them getting a clear message that you mean what you say, and the quality of the emotion within the ritual will do that. The timing doesn’t matter so much – in your head, think, ‘That one was for Thursday,’ if it helps, and all will be well. Try not to get bogged down in blame, and try to enjoy the magick. Bloody hard when you’re exhausted, but if you can, it really, really helps. If it can feel like a place to relax and enjoy putting out your requests, that’s better than it feeling like a real burden that you have to get over and done with.

        1. And just so that I’m clear, in the book, Damon says you should not perform an angelic request more than once a day. Should I end up performing one ritual at 1:30am on a Friday (intending it for Thursday night) and then perform it again at 10:30pm that Friday night, that is not (technically) considered performing it twice in one day right? Is that once a day rule more to avoid a forcing the magick lust for result type of situation?

          Like

          1. Yeah, the way I’ve taken that rule is that it’s to discourage people from doing it ten times a day, or even three. You know, once you say to people, ‘Hey, you can add in ten complications,’ people then feel they MUST add in ten complications. So we’re really, really cagey about saying what extras you can add in. To keep it simple. That rule is there for that reason, as I see it, so nobody will tick you off for doubling up.

  11. Hello Adam,
    Thank your guidance earlier. I’ve started and I would like my session to be more smoothly spoken by me and was wondering if it would be ok to simply practice speaking the request while I am not doing an actual request? Possibly even memorizing the parts in Hebrew. I don’t want to feel like I’m just reading these parts. By the way, charging the Shem Talisman was a very unique and warm experience! Thank you for the book.

    1. Hi, and thanks. Good to hear you enjoyed the shem charging.

      Yes, you can practice if it helps things run smoothly, and you won’t do magick by accident. The words alone are words,; it;s only when applied in a ritual, with the feelings etc… So, yes, practice is cool.

    1. Hello. There’s no magick that can make you famous without all the other efforts and circumstances required for fame. But there are rituals to Be The Centre of Attention in Words of Power by Damon Brand, and Sigils of Power (by me, Adam Blackthorne). But to be straight up about it, they are only a tiny piece of the puzzle. You might need to do a lot more. There are many other angels that work with popularity and even fame, in The 72 Angels of magick, by Damon, but again, it’s only if there’s real world potential. Nothing will just magick it into existence. But being the centre of attention is a very useful tool for those on the path to fame.

      Being influential and getting people to submit to influence are quite different things, but there are rituals in several books that can help give you the appearance of authority, and make others listen to you. The best books for that is probably The 72 Angels of Magick.

      For love, there are many ways of going about it, but The Angels of Love by Zanna Blaise is an angelic working dedicated to that. You can find links to all these on the About page: https://galleryofmagick.com/about/

  13. Adam, I am trying to rid old problems. As well as working towards discovering curses, it has been brought to my attention I should also be mindful of “soul contracts” or “contracts” that no longer serve me or are otherwise holding me back. The power for this is not listed but I was thinking this could be a job for Sealiah or Hayiel. What do you think?

    Like

    1. Hey there. It’s down to your personal beliefs on this one. I think we cling to a lot of stuff, and shifting it away is a great thing – whether or not that’s a soul contract is another matter. Lots about shifting blockages in The 72 Sigils by Zanna and Angels of Alchemy by Damon, but in The 72 Angels, those angels are more about a curse imposed from elsewhere – so it depends on what you mean by soul contract, as it’s defined in so many ways in all sorts of different belief systems. But always let the choice of angel be your own, driven by your knowledge of the problem, and your feel for it and for what angel might work for you.

  14. After I’ve completed the ritual for eleven days, do I need to occasional repeat it like the protection rituals? I understand, that for some rituals in the book, it might be needed again for certain situations. I do feel that some, like the psychic ritual, I wouldn’t need for various occasions because of the way I asked, or intended. I am just wondering, would I need to ask again later on?

    1. Hi Kamaria. Sometimes a top-up feels right, and that’s ok. The answer in the main FAQ goes like this:

      “Q: How often do I need to repeat the magick?

      A: If the magic was well chosen, for a situation that was susceptible to change, there’s no need to repeat. If the magick completely fails, because you lusted for result or asked for something too far from current reality, you can modify the ritual and repeat. Otherwise, only repeat a ritual when the circumstances change. Repetition will not force a result out of nowhere, but choosing magick well, will. ”

      But if you’re just wanting to reinforce it, or modify it or add a little extra at a later date, why not? But it’s always good to reassess and see how things have changed, and what you might ask for differently. Sometimes, nothing, but often things have changed quite a lot.

      Cheers, Adam B.

    1. Hi there, glad you like the book, and good question – I don’t think that’s completely crystal clear in the book. Once is enough. You can do it once and that will last you a lifetime. You’ve made that talisman a part of you. Now, saying that, I know that people do like to repeat things – once a year, once every few months, to sort of renew the connection. Even I do this. It’s like saying hello again! So charge it once and trust that it’s within you, and then if you feel tempted to do it again at some point, you can – but don’t feel like you have to keep ladling the energy into that one.

  16. Hi Adam, I am wondering when would the effects of the ritual kick in- is it from Day 1 onwards or from Day 11 onwards? I am asking because if I am doing a ritual for travel protection, should I do it at least 11 days before I can do it the day before I travel and the ritual still can work.

    1. For Elemiah it says, “Complete the working on the last Sunday before your journey commences.” For Yeyayel the implication in the text is, ‘Get it all done before you set off.’ For this sort of thing I try to get it all done before I leave, but if that’s not possible then carrying on while travelling is ok too. Sometimes you only get one day of magick in before you leave, because of short notice, and it’s not a Thursday! Still better than nothing – for me, anyway. If it’s just a normal journey, I don’t bother, but if it’s new or unusual I try to get some done before I leave.

  17. I read your book the 72 angels and started working with petitioning an angel. I don’t understand one thing: Once your 11 day petition is finished, you do not repeat? It sounds as if you are saying its not necessary. I mean, if your request was not granted, and its something important to you maybe it should be repeated again in a few weeks or after some time has elapsed? If the answer is still no, would your next petition have to be something worded slightly different, or to a different angel, or two?
    I’m also concerned if you make a small error when you are a newbie, would you have to repeat from day 1? My error is that I am ‘directionally challenged’ and faced a different direction from East. I just did not realize it until I double checked the next day. I decided just go ahead with day 2 anyhow, but i don’t want to lessen the probability of success. The second day, its interesting, I did smell a faint sweet/spicy scent at the end of the ritual, so I am taking that to mean that it was OK, that I was heard by my angel. Is this a good assumption?
    Thanks.

    Like

    1. Hey there. Adam B here as Damon’s moved on for now. But yes, a scent like that is a great sign. Not everybody gets these. Doesn’t make the result better, but can be a reassuring sign that magick’s happening.

      Don’t worry too much about directions and details like that; best to get them right, but confident and enjoyable magick is better than when you worry about the details. And one reason for an 11 days ritual is that it means you’re getting it right on some days at least. That builds up enough power over the course of the ritual.

      Repetition – big subject. The reason not to is that is shows fear, lack of trust and an approach to the magick that says, ‘I’m not expecting this to work.’ But, hey, six months later if there’s no result, it would be crazy to do nothing. I guess what we try to push is that you need to let go of the lust for result from the start, and if you worry about ‘how soon should I repeat this’, that’s the wrong approach – better to assume it’s gonna work. And then if it doesn’t, you can repeat, or as you wisely suggest, maybe try a different approach or angel. Or if circumstances change, or if you change, you can repeat. Often, even if you don’t get what you want, you learn something about yourself or what you want and that helps you get the magick to work. (A great post that can help is this one: https://galleryofmagick.com/2016/08/03/targeting-your-magick/

    1. Hey there, Adam B here. Really glad to hear you’ve had such success with the books. Always great to hear that!!!

      I updated Facebook with this news back in December, but might add something to the FAQ here, as the site’s not been updated as well on this news. This is what I said there:

      “Some Gallery of Magick News. Many thoughts have been spread all over the threads in the past day or two, so how about a snappy summary of the latest thoughts for those who like summaries: Damon Brand won’t be around here for personal reasons, but is expected to write two or three more books eventually. None are due for at least a year. Another magick book is coming out in early Jan 2017. It’s a style of magick that’s been secret until now. Many of the results you achieve with this magick are the same as in other books, so maybe you don’t need it. But maybe you do. Read the table of contents when it’s published! Gordon’s influence work has been stuffed into a much bigger book, covering a lot of subjects, and that hefty work will hit the shelves (and the e-shelves) in June or July. The Holy Guardian Angel book is on hold for now due to Damon’s absence. We may finish it, give away a short free version or include the ideas in something else that gets published. We’re working on it.”

      Since then, I updated that with the following: “Interesting magickal things are happening over the next few months, so stick around! But there won’t be any new books for about six months – then we’ll publish two long-awaited books. Maybe on the same day. If there’s something you’ve been hoping for, it could be one of these. I can’t say anything else about them for now. But I know they will be well loved. Those books will be paperback only, for a few good, practical reasons – I know that’s going to disappoint a lot of people, but it’s the right decision. (Everything else we’ve published will stay the same – ebook and print.) So if you want more books, you will get them mid-year. Until then, expect lots of free stuff to help with your magick!”

      Make sure you back around June and July.

      Cheers. AB.

    1. I should put this in the FAQ. It was covered in The Greater Words of Power, where Damon said that you repeat only when circumstances change. That’s when you know it’s either stopped working or the world, your situation, whatever, has changed. And “if there’s no actual change in circumstances, there’s no need to repeat the ritual.” Why not try it and see how long it lasts for you? Dive into the magick and you learn from experience. There’s no better way!!! 🙂

    1. Hi Troy. Adam here as Damon’s elsewhere right now. There’s no reason not to acknowledge the angel, and the help you;re going to get – but asking ‘please’ is the wrong approach. Noting wrong with good manners, but a plea feels too much like you’re asking the angel to judge whether or not it’s fair.When you bring that sort of debate to the magick, it makes it less likely to work. As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, begging and pleading and desperation can work in some circumstances, but the ritual practice set up here is not about that; it’s all about clear intent. You make your intent clear, the angels respond, and that’s it. If you turn it into a plea, it may bring some level of ‘debate’ into the process – you’re then not saying you want sleep, but you want somebody else to possibly grant it, and the result will be dependent on the nature of the plea rather than the request. There’s a subtle difference. Explaining this well is difficult in a short space – it’s all horribly theoretical, but these subtitles have an impact on what happens. But, to simplify, and to do this practically, you’d be better thanking the angel in advance for the sleep that is to come. That feeling of thanks and expectation is going to work way better. So as you go to bed you can think this, say it out loud – some people even do a mini ritual. I think a small thought and feeling is enough. But it’s thanks and belief that it’s inevitable, rather than hope. Hope just leaves you lying there waiting for your prayers to be answered.

    1. You might do magick for something and the results are stodgy, but then when you get out of the way, or when something else changes, the results all come at once. It’s about you changing something in yourself that is preventing things going the way you want. Often, deep down, it’s about not feeling you deserve something. So that’s where books like The Angels of Alchemy can remove those blocks, and that helps all the other magick to start working, where it was stumbling.

  25. Hello, I have an inquiry that may seem silly, but would appreciate your advice. I have a living situation that, aside from being annoying (roommates, always annoying nomatter how much you love them) is loud. The walls are very thin and there is a dog in the house who is not mine, who is very small and has the most horrific bone chilling bark. I want to quiet the dog but I don’t know a safe way to do this. I looked through 72 Angels, and here; I am really at my limit with this thing and am rather nervous that if I were to employ an angel in this, the means to the end would be somehow dangerous, like the dog dies or something bad happens that makes my roommate leave, etc. Couple this with a deeper desire (though not decidedly the route I wish to take) to have them out of the house- it may just be taken to another level that is not “if it harm none”. Any thoughts?

    Like

    1. Difficult. How much do you want peace? Getting the roommate out might be what you want. Or maybe you need better communication. You need the roommate to take responsibility. All dogs bark. Dogs should not bark incessantly. If they do the owner is not doing a good job. (You know, I’m guessing here – based on your description.) So you either need to build the confidence and courage to make your point, or work to make the other person kinder so they do this. There’s lots of magick that can help here. but I bet it comes down to the point where you actually have to speak your mind. There is magick that can subdue animals, but I’m not convinced that it’s entirely savoury in all circumstances so I won’t share it here.

      Oh, I just read it again – you do want them out of there. Not easy, ever, but it can be done. You need to look at what’s most likely to work. making them angry and miserable, or hopeful and outward looking, or uneasy and weird – or just asking them. Often that last one, free of all magick, is the easiest, once it;s done.

  26. I have a story to share to honor Angel Mahasiah and express my gratitude for curing my health condition, which is nothing short of a miracle, and for bringing peace to the place I work and the place I play. It took me a while to find the right Angel. I contacted a few Angels that weren’t able to help me with this issue, but they helped with other ones. When I decided on Mahasiah, I still waited for the time I can perform the ritual perfectly. But I ran out of time. I had small lumps in my breast for a couple of years. They were painless and didn’t bother me, but I wanted them gone nonetheless. The problem is – I didn’t want a surgery, or anything invasive. I just wanted a miracle, and I was determined to get it. One day I came from work and found out that one lump was inflamed, swollen, hot and throbbing with pain. It was too late in the day to go to the doctor, and I was really scared. I decided to go to the doctor in the morning, and started the ritual to contact Mahasiah. I felt a very strong presence, when I was interrupted by someone coming home. It took me just a second to pick up my things and leap into another, more private room right in the middle of the ritual. I picked up where I left off, but, of course the energy was fading. I didn’t have time to write my request, so I had to improvise. The pain was gone before I finished saying my request and I fell asleep a little bit relieved. I was woken up at 2am by the presence in my room and a strong smell of a wax candle. I decided that the presence didn’t feel threatening and opened my eyes. (I know SBR by heart and use it if I feel uncomfortable) Above me I saw the light that cleared up to reveal Mahasiah’s face. It was nothing like the pictures of the angels we are all used to! Yet, I was mesmerized by it and couldn’t look away. We were looking at each other for a few minutes until it faded, taking the energy and smell of a candle with it. During the next 13 days I changed my request 4 or 5 times! I asked to know his additional powers communicated to me in my dreams. I got dreams, but I couldn’t interpret them. I asked to stop sending me dreams. He stopped. I accidentally upset someone at work, and although I apologized, I felt it was not enough, so I asked Mahasiah to bring peace to the people I upset, and to the entire office. He did. As Damon said, Angels paint in broad strokes. That request for peace in the office is still making splashes. People who couldn’t be in the same room now are going to lunch together. It has been almost a month – Mahasiah in his infinite patience and compassion cured all lumps, and brought peace despite my imperfect magick. Thank you, Mahasiah, Damon and GOM for making it all happen. Words cannot express how grateful I am for this miracle 🙂
    P.S. I apologize for the long post. Please, edit it if you can make it shorter.

    Thanks for answering my post. Apologise but I still have a couple of questions. I know you have been patient with me and I really appreciate all your advices. My questions are 1) from the 72 angels- I’ve done one ritual a few weeks ago and hence I’ve charged the talisman. Do I need to charge the talisman every time I want to start a new ritual? 2) what if I’ve forgotten to charge the sigil and have carried out a day/few days of the ritual. Should I just carry on or do i need to charge the sigil as soon as possible and carry on or should i start all over again on the next recommended time? Thanks so much. Greatly appreciate your kindness and guidance.

    1. From the book:

      “You can perform this charging ritual just moments before you perform the main ritual, or months in advance, and the effect will remain as strong.”

      “So long as you see a sigil while it is being charged, it will remain charged, even when used on a different device at a later date.

      And regarding whether or not charging is essential, this is also from the book: “Talismans and sigils work whether or not you ‘charge’ them psychically, but many people find they get better results if they activate the images with magickal energy.”

      There is no substitute for trying the magick out. Imperfect magick teaches you more about there experience of magick than waiting for perfection.

My question is this; Do you think it is wise to invoke Two of the listed powers for a given angel during one session? For example I have need to call on Cahetel to “drive away evil spirits” but at the same time & unrelated to this request I would like to create a “strong voice”. Should I call on him for the former, wait till completion and then next Thursday begin the ritual for the voice? Or can I ask for help with both during the same call? Another variation of this would be what if the requests were related? For example what if I called on Lavel to help me create music and while I was at it, asked for the Angel’s help to perform Music as well? What are your thoughts on this Sir? Thanks again – J

If I’m calling on three angels – even if they are all working on the same task for me – I will call one, wait a few hours, call the next and so on. If you are pressed for time you can condense the process by making the opening call (i.e The Master Ritual), and then calling on each angel in turn. Some people find great success with this approach so feel free to try it out.”

    1. The reason I suggest that you work it out for yourself is not out of laziness, but because I can not know all the factors of your situation without sitting down for a long consultation – I don’t know the current state of your relationship, the nature of the person in question, the intent behind all this and so on. It may be that you need to work with several angels, or just one. If you don’t want to harm the person, you can still bind, but if the Magickal Attack book is not to your taste, you will note that there are many angelic powers that can be used on enemies without bringing them bad luck – for example, Yichuiah, to Destroy the Plans of an Enemy. And there are angelic powers for less visibility, (Lecavel) etc, and these can be applied to the situation. You may also want to use angelic magick to ensure fidelity – that will stop the person’s efforts from having an impact. The best advice I can give is to read the recent post on Targeting Your Magick and then make the appropriate choices. Something simple may work, but you may also need a more targeted approach. Trust your intuition.

A variation is to use one note for each syllable – so change the pitch as the syllable changes. If you don’t like how it feels, that discomfort is not ideal, so just vibrate. But if you can get the quality of song into it, that is ideal.

      1. Thanks Damon. Changing the pitch with each syllable works really well for me. It now feels different than just vibrating and I feel comfortable doing it. Also the quality of the ritual changed too. Can’t put into words exactly how yet (I’ve only done it once) but I like it. Thanks again for the help!

  36. Hello Damon,

    would it be possible to do the rituals completely silent, just “saying” the spells in the head? I have absolutely no space in our tiny flat (wife, children, …) to speak out the words loudly. As weird as it sounds, but performing the ritual silently in the bathtub/shower would be the most comfortable and undisturbed place for me.

    What do you think Damon, will I get proper results anyway?
