Frequently Asked Questions
This page is only for questions relating to The Angels of Alchemy.
PLEASE READ THE BOOK FULLY BEFORE POSTING.
MOST QUESTIONS ARE ALREADY ANSWERED THERE.
Questions are moderated and may take a few hours or more to appear. If yours doesn’t appear, it may be because it’s already been answered in the book or in this FAQ. Questions that speculate about theory won’t be posted as the focus has to remain on practical magick.
This page will be open to new questions from time to time. A thorough reading of the book and some patient contemplation will answer almost any question you have. Please read this FAQ and also read the main Gallery of Magick FAQ before asking a question.
Q: Does the evocation method work with other spirits?
A: It is not designed for general use. The Affinity Process can be used with some spirits if you have their Evocation Keys, but it is not always the best process. It is ideal for these angels, which is why it is included in this book.
Q: Can I use this with other magick?
A: Yes, and I believe that working with this book, and The 72 Sigils of Power, is one of the best ways to remove blockages, and that can speed up manifestation. Be wary of piling too many rituals on top of each other for the same result, though, as you can’t force magick to work. A subtle and tactical approach is more likely to be effective, as described in Targeting Your Magick.
Q: I’ve learned some other methods from your books, such as Light From The Dark, and singing the angel’s name. Should I use that here?
A: You can always apply techniques you have learned, but there may not be a need to do so, The method has been simplified as far as possible, and can be used as written. If you want to, however, you can add in other techniques.
Q: The Hebrew in some of the sigils is similar, but not quite identical to the lettering in some of your other sigils. Why the change?
A: Please read about ‘smudging’ on the Pronunciation and Spelling FAQ.
Q: I heard that some people felt the angel’s presence immediately, and others got results on the first day. Why’s it not working so fast for me?
A: Please remember that the book points out that there are many variations in the way you experience the angels and the results. This is absolutely to be expected, so do not be discouraged because others have had instant success.
Q: Six of these angels also appear in The Angels of Love? Which book should I use to contact them?
A: The styles of contact are slightly different, so look at what result you’re trying to get. If you want the result from The Angels of Love, then use that style. Or, use her wording when using The Angels of Alchemy. If you want to access the powers more as they are described in my book, use that. You can use both, one after the other, but that is probably overkill. Once the angels get your message, that is enough.
