General Questions About Magick

Q: You’ve been doing this magick for decades, so is it really useful to beginners?

A: The magick was designed to be accessible for beginners, and streamlined to cut away the unnecessary dross, and then extensively field-tested by beginners and experienced workers.

Q: I’ve been doing magick for decades. Do your books really offer anything new?

A: From the messages we receive, yes. There might not be an enormous amounts of new knowledge, but hopefully you’ll pick up some workable ideas.

Q: I have some questions about translation, spelling and pronunciation.

A: Please see: Pronunciation and Spelling FAQ

Q: Can I perform several rituals at once?

A: Yes, but please read  A Rush of Occult Power  and  The Abundance of Magick . Also, see the next question.

Q: Can I perform magick from several books at the same time?

A: See above. Also, it’s worth noting that many people find exactly what they’re looking for using one book alone, while others get the best results using combinations. You might, for example, use the Cashbook, Magickal Riches and the Job Seeker if that suits your circumstances. Other people want to try seduction at the same time as money magick. This is all fine, so long as you feel you have the energy to commit to the magick with full concentration. Given the relative ease of the rituals, that is fine for most people. When it comes to angelic work, the first book says, ‘One perfectly chosen angel will do a better job than three that might help the situation.’ This is true, but if you feel the need to combine several angels, or several forms of magick, you can do so. The most important thing is to ensure that you don’t do this out of desperation or to make the magick happen faster. It’s better to take a calm approach to getting results in stages than to do everything at once. Please see The Abundance of Magick.

Q: Are you working with black magick or white magick or something else?

A: Magick is neutral, like a scalpel. You can use a scalpel to perform surgery, to attack and mutilate somebody or to sharpen a pencil. It’s how you use the magick, and your moral standing and sense of self, that matters. Magick is neutral and can only be evil if you make it evil.

Q: Is this like The Law of Attraction?

A:  It’s quite different, but many people find that when Law of Attraction has reached its limit, magick is the next step. The New Thought movement, which led to the modern Law of Attraction (LOA), arguably grew out of the magickal tradition; some would say that LOA was influenced and informed by some magickal concepts, but was steered away from being seen as magick. This is very much open to debate, but it does appear likely given that there are some similarities to magick; in both LOA and magick letting go of desperate desire and feeling gratitude in advance will help results to manifest. In magick, you often (but not always)  seek the assistance of supernatural entities such as angels, and even when that is not the case, you are working with altered states and ritual practice that is about imposing your desires on reality, and this is often done by shifting your emotions, changing your perception of present time, and expressing gratitude to a spirit. We do not see reality as something created by every thought, and we do not believe that all negative events are attracted by negative thoughts – indeed, we often say that the deep range of subtle and strong emotions, even the negative ones, are an important part of life. Learning to shift emotions can be a hugely magickal act. Reality, as we see it, is not something you create with every thought, but a boiling froth of largely indifferent chaos, and magick gives you a way to impose personal order on that chaos. It gives you a way to connect with the soul of things, and the heart of reality. There isn’t the space to explain this well in a brief FAQ, but the results of magick are qualitatively different to LOA results. At it’s most basic, with something like Magickal Cashbook, the work may feel similar to LOA (if a little more ritualistic), but more advanced magick, where you actually sense the presence of an angel, is a world away from the teachings and beliefs of LOA.

Q: Can I do magick for other people?

A: You can, and it often works well if they don’t know you’re doing magick, because they have no resistance to the results. On the other hand, if you don’t ask them whether they want help, you might not be giving them what they really want. It is very difficult to know what you want from magick, never mind somebody else, so proceed with caution. Be sure you know what that person really wants, rather than what they say they want. With that said, doing magick for others can be a beautiful gift, and many people find their magickal abilities improve if they perform magick for others. The process is quite simple – instead of intending the result for yourself, your intend it for somebody else. You can project your emotions, or what you imagine their emotions will be, into the magick. There are many ways to do this, depending on which book you are using, but if you want to help others just trust your instincts and have a go. See Doing Magick For Others.

Q: Do I need faith or belief for the magick to work?

A: No, but it helps if you have a playful, open mind. Remember what it was like as a kid to play a game as though it was real. Approach magick with that sort of playful belief, as though it’s real, and it becomes real.Having said that, magick should not be so playful that it feels silly or trivial. The key is to approach it as though it is real. When you get in your car you expect it to start without concern. Approach magick with the same calm certainty.

BookZanna

Q: Can I modify the ritual using different spirits, meditation and other forms of magick?

A: Of course you can, but consider it an experiment. The magick has been simplified as far as possible and we cannot predict the results when you modify the process.

Q: Is there a ritual to lose weight?

A: There is nothing aimed directly at weight loss. When it comes to magick you need to break down the problem, and then tackle each aspect of the problem with magick. With weight loss, it is nearly always willpower that is the problem. You may benefit from Increase Willpower to Eat Well from The Greater Words of Power. There is also Dedicate Yourself To A New Skill in Words of Power, which can help with your personal dedication to a project. The Power To Improve Physical Health from The 72 Angels of Magick can support your efforts. There are other rituals in that book that also help with other areas of the self, and they may be useful. Also useful would be The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise, as it covers willpower and also works with many areas of the self and the personality. But  these are not rituals that can make you lose weight. They can only shore up your own determination.

Q: Is there a ritual to help with sexual problems, such as erectile dysfunction?

A: This is one of the most commonly asked questions, and while it is true that some people have used angelic magick to improve health issues, there is no magick that we know of that can reliably help with such sexual health problems, and it is strongly recommended that you seek conventional treatments.

Q: I started doing the magick and things got worse. Did I do something wrong, or is it a backlash?

A: It’s never a backlash, but there are two reasons. One could be that your problem had momentum, and even if the magick works instantly, the momentum has to be slowed before it can be reversed – which means things may appear to continue getting worse. Give it time and trust, and the reversal you seek should come. A second reason is that if the magick affects other people in some way, they may offer some resistance. The resistance may last some time, or may yield. When things get worse, nobody can blame you for saying, ‘The magick made things worse,’ but it might help to know that this is a sign that your magick is actually working, is getting through, is stirring up the people around you – they feel uncomfortable and show resistance. Mostly, magick just plain works, and it’s all very simple. But if things get worse as soon as you start magick, trust that it’s a sign of resistance from somebody else who’s entangled with your affairs. Things should settle.

Q: Is there a way to make a ritual more powerful?

A: There are many ways, explored in many articles on this site, but one of the best ways is to choose what you change wisely. Don’t try to shift your entire universe at once. Work on aspects that need only a little shift, a small change. A few small changes soon build momentum and bring you rapid transformation. Magick can bring sudden and stunning transformation, and often does, but a wise occultist will learn to work on many areas that are susceptible to change. Cause change where change is most likely. Sounds obvious, but it’s very easy to miss this essential key to effective magick. Also, see this post: 12 Ways to Increase Your Magick Power

Questions About the Practice of Magick

Q: I missed out part of the ritual by mistake and only realized later. Should I carry on or start again?

A: I am asked this question so frequently that I suspect people are starting rituals without ensuring that they have read the instructions fully. I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of actually reading the book. It may sound ridiculous, but the vast majority of the questions I get asked come about because people have not read the book fully. Most of the information you need is there. If you have missed part of a ritual out, you can carry on until the end, but be aware that the results may have been affected. Please ensure that you take the time to learn the ritual in full before starting out. The rituals in these books are simplified as far as possible, but you should understand all the elements of the ritual before doing the magick. Simplification can be a good thing, but it should not be assumed that the magick is so simple that it can be taken lightly. You can not rush the magick or expect it to work if performed without disipline and accuracy. Experimentation is encouraged once you are familiar with the work, but at the outset you should adopt a more thorough approach.

Q: Do I need to fast, cleanse, meditate, abstain from sex or perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of The Pentagram for your magick to work?

A: No. It won’t do any harm, but it’s not required.

Q: Do I need lots of candles, herbs and incense?

A: No. It’s not that kind of magick. One ritual involves a candle, but the candle is completely optional – you can imagine colored light instead and it works as well. We try to keep things as simple as possible. The more factors you put in place, the more you worry that you may worry you’re getting something wrong. But if it helps you get in the mood or feels important to you, go ahead.

Q: I can’t say the words of the ritual out loud, for reasons of privacy. Will it still work?

A: Yes, so long as you imagine the sound of the words clearly, and imagine that you are calling to the ends of the universe.

Q: Is it OK to use sigils and talismans on computer screens, iPads, phones and other devices?

A: Yes. So long as you can see it, it will work. Any device is fine. Use the same device each time you use that particular sigil for the best results.

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. There are many posts on this website that can help.

GreaterWords

Q: Can the rituals be written/performed/spoken in a language other than English?

A: Yes, but only change the English parts to your native tongue. The non-English parts should be spoken as they are written.

Q: Do the rituals need to be memorized?

A: No, you can read them from the page.

Q: What do I do with printed sigils or talismans once I’ve finished using them? Do they have to be buried at a crossroads or can I throw them in the trash?

A: Sometimes there are specific instructions on getting rid of a sigil, such a burning or burial, but if this is impractical (if you can’t find a discreet crossroad, for example) you can simply dispose of them and no harm will come to you or your magick. There is a key to this – stop thinking of them as magickal and then simply dispose of them. For angelic sigils, however, many people like to store them and reuse them. If you feel an urge to keep a talisman or sigil that is fine, unless the book specifically says that it should be destroyed.

Q: I used the sigils in the book (or the ebook) so how do I destroy them?

A: Stop thinking of them as magickal, stop using them, and leave them where they are.

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. See this post.

Q: Do the current conditions affect how the magick works? For example, I want a promotion but my boss hates me.

A: The initial conditions of any situation will always affect the magick. If something needs just a tiny push, then any effort, magickal or something else, will have a big effect more easily than if lots of big pushes are needed. But we use magick because sometimes it can work when nothing ordinary seems to work – it changes reality through the supernatural. Which means the answer is yes: the initial condition will always matter, but magick can work anyway. Focus on what is most likely to change. If you want a promotion, do you work a ritual magick for a promotion, or would it be wiser to work on making your boss like you more, or changing the way you are perceived, or achieving a breakthrough at work? Targeted magick, well planned, can help you manoeuvre your way around the current conditions to get what you want.

Q: Some books call on the same entities, but the rituals are more complex. Why?

A: Each book gives you the simplest form of the magick that works for that particular style of magick. If there’s no need for the additional layers of complication, why add them? You are free to add in what you learn from other books, but this is entirely optional, and probably not required, because the simple versions work as intended.

The Gallery of Magick and our Publications

Q: What’s the best book for a complete beginner?

A: Words of Power by Damon Brand and The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise are probably the easiest books to get into for a beginner. But you can afford to be led by your needs. If you are in need of Magickal Protection, Magickal Attack or Magickal Riches, there is no reason you can’t start there. All the books are suitable for beginners, and Sigils of Power has proven to be so safe and easy that it is well liked by beginners.

Q: What happened to your free eBook, The Power of Magick?

A: It’s been removed, because it only contained a small number of posts from this site – they are all still available here. We now recommend that readers absorb as many of the posts on this site as possible.

richesweb

Q: Where can I get free copies of the ebooks?

A: The free ebooks are available when you purchase new print copies through Amazon.com (no other Amazon sites work, unfortunately). If you purchased a print edition of a book, through Amazon, log in to your account and then go to this link, and hit the button that says ‘Find your Kindle Matchbook titles.’ Please note that it can take 24 hours or more for your free Matchbook to become available.

 

http://www.amazon.com/gp/digital/ep-landing-page

Q: Why aren’t paperbacks available in Canada anymore?

A: This is an Amazon issue, and one that they have said will be resolved in the future. For now they suggest ordering paperbacks from Amazon.com.

Q: I want to buy your books but I’m having difficult ordering a book from my country. Can you help?

A: Thanks for your interest in the books, but unfortunately we can’t solve these problems any better than Amazon or Createspace. You may want to contact them directly (to see if the books can be shipped to your address) via the Help button on their page. There are some countries that Amazon can’t deliver to, however, we do get queries from people saying they are having difficulty getting books shipped to a particular country, but at the same time many books have been delivered to the named country. As such, we can only suggest that there is a problem with the particular address or credit card being used. Amazon or Createspace will be able to tell you whether or not a book can be ordered and delivered to you. Other options include getting a friend to order the book for you (in the same country or another one), ordering the book but using a friend’s address for delivery (with their permission), or using a different Amazon store closer to your country. You could even try obtaining secondhand copies of the book from eBay or other sellers, which might make delivery to your country easier.

Q: Can I just use one book or do I need to read them all?

A: Each book is completely self-contained. There is overlap, but each book can be used alone. If you learn techniques from one book and want to apply them to another, you may of course do so.

Q: How do we know you don’t pay people to write all those 5-Star reviews?

A: It’s quite easy to spot fake reviews. You click on the reviewer’s name or identity and see what else they have reviewed. Fake reviewers will tend to review several eBooks every day, and nothing but eBooks, on a mind-boggling array of subjects, and their reviews are quite general, being in the style of, ‘I really love this subject and find it interesting and well written.’ As you can see from the reviews of all The Gallery of Magick books, this is not the case; there are many long and detailed reviews. The paperback reviews are almost equal in number to the eBook reviews, proving that they are genuine – fakers only ever review digital products. A quick scan of the reviewers’ buying habits shows they also buy many physical products. These are, quite clearly, real people.

Of course, when somebody is successful, others will cry ‘fake’, and accuse you of being a fraud. This is inevitable, but misleading – you can see for yourself that the reviews are genuine. It’s also worth noting that Amazon publisher accounts can be closed down when fake reviews are spotted, so a serious publisher would not risk losing their ability to publish by dabbling in such tactics. The Gallery of Magick books have thousands of positive reviews, gathered over years, so I think it’s safe to say there’s no fakery. If you’re uncertain, download the free sample or read it on the Amazon page, so you can form your own opinion. The magick clearly works, but you should find out if the style and content appeals to you before buying. If you remain suspicious and think it’s all a scam, then please just move along and don’t waste your time here.

Q: How can I contact the authors directly?

A: We are not currently open to private communication, due to the overwhelming number of private messages received. It’s worth noting that the vast majority of questions we have been asked (privately and publicly) are already answered in the FAQs, so hopefully you can find your answer on this site. The FAQ pages are closed to new questions about half of the time, as we are trying to encourage people to read thoroughly, and to try the magick out. Experience is a great teacher, and it became very clear that some people were doing far more asking and theorising than they were doing magick. The only way to get a magickal result is to do magick, and the books contain enough information to get results. If you have problems, read the posts and FAQs on this site. You will find answers.

Q: Can I hire you to perform a ritual or psychic reading for me?

A: The books are provided to that you can learn magick for yourself. We do not perform work for hire.

angels72

Q: Did you know that somebody in an occult magick forum said some terribly negative things about you?

A: No, but this is no surprise. We stopped reading the forums a long, long time ago. They were useful and informative at one time, and may still be from time to time, but when I gave up on them it was because they were mostly about posturing, defending positions and beliefs, attacking others, trying to win arguments or prove points, and it’s all very dull. If you believe what you read there and decide you don’t like our books because of it, that’s fine by me, but I won’t be joining the discussion because I have magick to perform and a life to lead.

Q: I want printed copies of the sigils, but can’t print from the ebook. What do I do?

A: Most of the images are not available online. You can, however, use the images on a device such as a Kindle or iPad, and this works just as well as having a physical copy. Alternatively you can photograph the images on your device, or take a screenshot and print out from that. Physical copies are not required, but if you really want them you should buy the paperback, or the book Sigils and Talismans From The Gallery of Magick.

Q: Are you a recognized magickal order?

A: We a small group of successful writers, artists, musicians and entrepreneurs known as The Gallery of Magick. Most of us grew up together. A few others came along later. We are not open to new members at present. We have worked to develop new technology in magick. Since 1982 only one member has left the group. If you know anything about magickal orders, you’ll know that arguments, schisms and disagreements abound, so this is quite unusual. For whatever reason, we have remained a group who – although we are not all the best of friends – continue to find magickal solutions to real-world challenges.

Q: How many authors are in The Gallery of Magick?

A: There are seven professional and semi-professional writers in The Gallery, and of these, five are likely to publish books on occult subjects. The only published books at present are by Damon Brand, Zanna Blaise, Adam Blackthorne and Gordon Winterfield. Gordon covers darker material and Zanna writes about the more emotional aspects of magick, while Adam covers subjects on many aspects of magick. (The books are all based on magick used and developed by The Gallery of Magick, so they reflect the work of The Gallery as much as they reflect the individual authors.)

Q: I read that you share your knowledge because of certain ‘pacts’. What pacts were these, and are they dangerous?

A: When information is shared, there is often an obligation to continue the sharing process. That’s the extent of the pact. There was certainly no ‘deal with the devil’, even though the word ‘pact’ may conjure up that image for some people. It was more like a polite agreement made over dinner.

Q: What other books will you publish?

A: We now have a policy of announcing books only when they are just about to be published.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00054]

Q: Why are the images in my ebook really small?

A: Make sure you bought a genuine copy of the ebook directly through Amazon. There are unauthorized versions of the ebook available elsewhere online that contain small images, missing images and incorrect images. Needless to say, you will not get good results from such books. Some of these books also contain a link to this site, suggesting the images can be downloaded here. They cannot. The images should display correctly on Kindle devices, and any device running the Kindle app (such as an iPad or desktop PC or Mac). If you have a genuine copy, then on most devices, tapping (or double clicking) on the image will make the image expand to full size.

Q: Have you cursed illegal downloads?

A: Yes. We have now cursed those who share the books illegally, and all who download illegally. The aim of the curse is not to ruin your life, but to make your magick less effective. Some people have reported that this works, while others claim it has no effect. This is almost besides the point, because when it comes to the occult, piracy shoots itself in the foot. If you go into the process of magick and your first act is stealing, that’s not the best way to start – magick expands the feelings you hold on to, and theft comes from a feeling of poverty. As such, piracy will probably make you lose money. Thankfully, we can see that 99% of people buy the books. This is good because the stolen books are full of distorted images (round images have been squashed and some images are blurred or incorrect). There are some pirate copies out there that contain misspelled words. We have released our own pirate copies with deliberate mistakes, just to muddy the waters. The only way to know you’ve got the right magick is to buy it through Amazon or Createspace. Does this make us greedy? No. It is common sense if we are to continue publishing. We keep the cost down to make the books affordable. The Job Seeker book costs less than a cup of coffee in most countries and certainly less than a glass of good wine. If you can afford a device to read the books on (such as a phone, iPad or laptop), you can afford at least one book. If you want to assess the quality of the books first, Amazon provide free samples. If you don’t like what you see, don’t buy. I have seen many professional writers move to working part-time, due to piracy. Their careers are being destroyed. Piracy is ruining the quality of work that is available to readers and robbing writers of careers they have worked hard for. Piracy is far from harmless. As such, we will always fight piracy in whatever ways we can – legally and otherwise. I understand that money is very tight for many people, but that doesn’t make theft of books acceptable. Just because it’s easier than shoplifting doesn’t make it OK. You are, of course, free to share a book within your home, with partners and close friends, or even give a book away. Deliberate theft will always be punished. People sometimes ask how they can reverse the curse if they change their minds. It’s as easy as deleting the pirated copies and buying the books you stole.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000445_00001]

Q: Where can I get hard copies of the images in the books?

A: Please see Sigils and Talismans From The Gallery of Magick. If the images you need are not in this particular volume, you will need to buy the specific paperback, but do remember that physical copies are optional, and you can easily use the sigils and talismans in the ebooks.

Q: I am desperately poor and need a copy of your books. You are wealthy, so can you give me a free copy of Magickal Cashbook or The Magickal Job Seeker to get me started?

A: We can certainly afford to, but it would be a breach of our publishing contract. More importantly, it’s not in your best interest. If you are genuinely so poor that you can’t even afford one book (which costs less than a basic lunch, or a pint of beer), then the level of desperation you’re feeling means that magick is unlikely to work as well as you want it to. It would be more effective to work on your immediate real-world problems, before turning to magick. Although magick can help you out of desperate situations, this ability usually comes later, when you have learned to be at ease with magick. Your first forays into magick should be done with a relaxed and, curious and confident open mind, rather than the desperate need for a result. Financial desperation can freeze your financial reality, and make change less likely. Although magick sometimes performs miracles for desperate people, it is rare when it comes to money. Please see: The Secrets of Money Magick. Also, there is absolutely no doubt that if you take the time to scrape together the few dollars required to buy the book, the sense of achievement and commitment will be more effective for you than if you just get a freebie. Freebies are easy to dismiss, and that would be a shame. The secrets in these books are priceless to those who learn to use them. For just a few dollars, you can change your life. I am not suggesting that you go without a meal in order to buy my book and make me a little wealthier. For the record, I abhor poverty and much of my time in the real world is spent trying to improve wages for the poor and find jobs for those who need them. So I don’t need your money. But I have heard many stories of people who found a way to scrape together the small price of this book, and never looked back. I hope this can work for you.

Q: I’ve read several books, but I’m not sure which magick is best. Can you advise me?

A: You need to trust your intuition. Nobody can know what you require as well as you know within yourself. Study the books closely, and try to sense if any of the rituals give you a feeling of potential or hope. If they do, they could work for you.

Q: There are books out there with identical titles to yours, and sometimes very similar author names. Are they related to The Gallery of Magick?

A: Not at all. We are aware of another Wealth Magick and a Magickal Seduction which appeared shortly after ours. There is also another Magickal Protection and a Words of Power. There’s no copyright on titles, but so there’s no confusion, The Gallery versions of these books are Wealth Magick by Damon Brand, Magickal Seduction by Damon Brand, Words of Power by Damon Brand and Magickal Protection by Damon Brand.

Q: Who writes the FAQs?

Questions About Money

Q: If I want to make some money, should I use Magickal Cashbook or Magickal Riches ?

A: The Cashbook is great for getting into magick and as you can see from the posts and reviews, it works quite readily. I believe Magickal Riches is the core book for understanding the relationship between money and magick, so that’s the one I like best.

Q: What’s the difference between Magickal Cashbook, Magickal Riches and Wealth Magick?

A: Magickal Cashbook gives one simple method for attracting cash out of the blue. Magickal Riches contains a Master Money Ritual, along with rituals that target specific financial areas, such as gambling, debt recovery, buying and selling, and so on. Wealth Magick is a long working aimed at changing your entire financial situation, and is only for readers who want to make wealth creation their primary focus.

When Things Don’t Work Out

Q: What if the magick doesn’t work?

A: Magick is only ever one factor in a situation, so it won’t always give the exact result you ask for, at the time you expect. It always works, however, in that it affects the situation and shifts the odds in your favour. If you see no obvious result, then the odds were really against you, or you were asking for something too far from your current place in the world. The key to all magickal success is breaking down your goals into reachable targets. Break your goals down into smaller, easier to achieve results, and work on them individually. If you want a promotion, don’t just do magick for a promotion – do magick to be a better worker, to look more appealing, to be a better team player or whatever is required to win the promotion. You can even bind your competition, of course. Break your goals down into smaller goals and magick works. Also, see this series of posts, and the next question.

Q: Why didn’t the magick work?

A: As you can see from the thousands of posts here, on Facebook, and the reviews on Amazon, magick works for most people. Know that magick works. Don’t test magick. Use it like you would use a screwdriver – assuming it will do what it was designed to do.

If it looks like the magick didn’t work, you might want to ask yourself, why didn’t the magick work yet? If you write off the results before you’ve given them a chance to work, you’re cancelling the magick before it’s had time to manifest. Although magick can work fast, patience is vital. It’s been said a thousand times before, but it’s worth repeating: when you are prepared to wait a year for results, they can come in an instant. When you are prepared to wait a month., they can come in days. If you demand instant results, you may have to wait a long time. Accept that the magick will work, and then stop hassling reality with your desperation for a result. There are many articles about this. Try reading these posts:

Banishing Your Lust For Result

The Pathways of Magick

It’s also worth noting, that when you use magick in an emergency situation, the results may not be immediately obvious due to the momentum of your previous reality. If you’re experiencing a run of bad luck, magick can stop that instantly; but you also need to be aware that you may be in such a tangled web of problems that it takes time for things to really pick up. You also need to do all you can to smooth your path. This is especially true with money magick. You might put money magick in place, and then get a run of bills, and wonder why you’re becoming poorer. This is often because magick has set things in motion, but the flow of your current reality is yet to be redirected. In short, give it time.

If you’re completely new to magick it could be that you’ve approached it with too much desperation, or that you didn’t read the instructions correctly. I often say that imperfect magick is better than no magick, but people frequently rush through, skips bits and hope for the best. There is no substitute for sitting down with the book, reading thoroughly an understanding fully. These posts can help get your  magick working:

Q: What happens if I’m interrupted in the middle of a ritual. Will there be a backlash?

A: The worst that can happen when magick ‘goes wrong’ is that nothing will happen. The spirits do not suddenly turn on you because you were interrupted. If the ritual ends unexpectedly, the atmosphere of magick and contact is immediately broken, in most cases. So all that has happened is nothing – the ritual was never completed. It is best to simply repeat the ritual when convenient. The ideal solution is to plan accordingly, to avoid this, but otherwise, just stop and start again when you have privacy.

Q: My comment was removed. Why? Do you censor your pages?

A: We welcome many different opinions and points of view, from all races and all backgrounds, but this page and the Facebook pages are moderated to prevent flame wars, boring arguments and other debates that are best left in occult forums. If anybody is obviously trolling, repeatedly posting the same theoretical question, or being rude, angry, aggressive, abusive, or insulting other users of the page, then those comments are removed. In some cases we ban the user, because it’s easier than entering into a boring debate. Life is too short to waste on social media – try magick instead! This doesn’t mean we remove all negative comments. Far from it, as you can see. But we want to keep the focus on the magick, so we reserve the right to stop people from lowering the tone, in the hope that the discussions can remain interesting, rather than descending into personal bickering or soapboxing.

Q: Why can’t I post without logging in?

A: This is for practical and legal reasons.

Theoretical Questions about Magick

Q: What’s the theory behind all this? Why does magick work?

A: We do not discuss theory unless it’s absolutely relevant to practical magick. There are thousands of books on magickal theory, and our purpose is to provide books that offer unique practical solutions. That is where our focus will remain for now.

Also, there is no single theory. There are as many theories as there are occultists. Some people talk of access to divine power, while others think it’s down to quantum physics. Between those two extremes, there are countless theories, and nobody knows what is true. If I were to state my version of the theory, it would be just that. One theory.

When magick works, or when you sense the power of magick, it is to be expected that you will wonder how it works. This can lead to frustration when you search for answers, because there are so many answers on offer, but so few that are satisfying. Personal introspection on the nature of magick can yield great insight. The experience of magick, and your own connection to magick, is probably the best way to get an understanding of what’s going on in the background.

Q: What’s the difference between an angel and a demon?

A: This falls into the realm of theory (see above), and can’t be answered adequately because the answer is usually personal based on your own background, beliefs and so on. One person’s answer it rarely another person’s truth. There are countless books on this subject, but we prefer to focus on the practical, because any answer we give will only provoke debate rather than understanding. But you may find it interesting to know that those who work with both the angels and demons know that are both capable of wisdom or wrath. If demons disturb you, there is no need to get involved with them at all.

wm

Q: Why do some rituals last five days, eleven days, thirty-three days and so on?

A: Timeframes are sometimes down to tradition, sometimes experience. One reason to repeat a ritual is that it ensures that any mistakes you make on any given day are less important. The timeframes suggested are the ideal ways of performing a ritual. If you only have one spare day to call on an angel, it’s better to make that call than to do nothing at all.

Q: Do I need to belong to a particular religion?

A: No. The magick is even used successfully by atheists. But only you can know whether you feel the magick conflicts with your religion. More important than religious belief, by far, is a willingness to open the pathways to change, to approach it with confidence, to be casual at the same time, and to be open-minded rather than testing it out to see if it works.

Q: You seem to ignore astrology. Should I time my magick to planetary influences or the phases of the moon?

A: If it matters to you or worries you, then go ahead and use planetary correspondences and timings, but unless specifically mentioned, you can work the magick at any time. We do.

Seduce

Q: Sometimes you seem to shorten chants and words of power. Some of the Hebrew words appear to have the wrong letters. Are these mistakes?

A: No, everything has been checked and is written as it’s meant to be. In some places acronyms are used (which leads to the Hebrew reading strangely), and in others traditional words are  ‘smudged’ (swapping letters and so on) to create a specific effect. See also: Pronunciation and Spelling FAQ

Q: You mention commanding spirits, including angels, but should we really be commanding such powerful beings?

A: We could debate this for years (and occultists often do), but spirits of all kinds should be treated like workers. They are not there to be worshipped, but under certain circumstances they will work for you. A good manager does not shout at the workers, but nor does a boss bow down and praise the workers and beg them to finish a task. Your approach to spirits should be to give them their instructions, politely, then leave them alone to get on with the job. If you worship them, treat them rudely or keep checking up on them, they won’t work as effectively. The word ‘command’ does not offended spirits. A ‘command’ is a polite way of stating clearly that this is your intended result.

Q: If spirits are like workers, shouldn’t we pay them?

A: Some people think that making offerings to spirits is the key to success. After all, you would pay your workers. I find that spirits need nothing other than gratitude. They require that you appreciate the result. If you perform magick for a result, then realize it’s not the result you wanted, the spirits might not be so happy about that. In dreams begin responsibilities. In short, be careful what you wish for. Magick works, and you have to live with the consequences of your magick. So, if you want to pay a spirit, feel appreciation for the result. If you really feel the need, thank the spirit politely, but don’t worship or pray or offer blood or you’ll end up paying for a long time. There are many respected and brilliant occultists who disagree with me, so feel free to do your own research and experimentation, but I find that spirits love gratitude, and they love it when you enjoy the magick and the result. They especially love it when you put effort into the working as well. Although you need to let go out your lust for result, you need to balance your request with effort. If you’re trying to seduce, for example, don’t stay at home and expect miracles. That’s like asking somebody to go jogging with you and then standing still as they run away. You have to join in with the magick for it to work. Put in some effort, feel some gratitude and that is far more effective than offering incense, water, blood or food.

 Q: Are the works all your own?

A: Many of the ideas are drawn from ancient and texts, including private collections, and are inspired by modern methods, but the workings themselves were created by The Gallery of Magick. All ancient symbols, regardless of origin, have been redrawn by members of The Gallery.

Q: Is you work based on the teachings of the occultist Geof Gray-Cobb?

A: No, that would be a great exaggeration as he was only an inspiration to some of us in the early days. Although initial experiments were inspired by his work, it goes no further than that, and his methods, ideas and approaches to magick were entirely different to the ones that we have published. Gray-Cobb made the spirit Nitika popular amongst some occultists, but Nitika has been around much longer than Gray-Cobb, and is listed as one of The Genii of The Twelve Hours in the Nuctemeron (from the 1st Century AD). Gray-Cobb used some traditional Hebrew words of power, and we have used such words of power, but this is traditional in this style of occult work and our interpretation and pronunciation of these words is entirely different to his, as is the phrasing and terminology used in the rituals. Gray-Cobb was mentioned in a couple of my early books out of historical interest and respect for the inspiration he provided, but while his work was certainly fascinating at the time, it was only a starting point that led us to primary source materials that predate his work by many centuries.

adventures

Q: Is there a ritual to end poverty, end war and save the environment?

A: If there was a ritual for World Peace, we would be performing it. That is, if there was a ritual that worked. There have been many large rituals, over the decades, aimed at this. And people do use magick in politics. But there is nothing we can do to just cure the world, because magick is about affecting our sphere of influence. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing we can do. The influence of one individual on any given situation can be enormous. But as always, with magick, the key is to see what you can change, and then break that problem down and direct the magick at those changes. When you change your own world, it has a ripple effect. So if you are able to change a few minds, or bring more peace to a place, or more rationality, that is good. But can you affect the feelings of Congress with magick? Highly unlikely. There are too many other factors in play. But you can affect the minds and hearts of those you know. The ripples will be felt. If you move in political circles, the ripples will be felt in more influential places. Magick is used by pressure groups, political campaigners and others who affect that state of the world, and it makes a difference, but it is all about finding what change you actually want to make, and then supporting your real-world efforts with magick.

Q: Can radionics be used with your magick?

A: We have no evidence of a beneficial effect from using radionics, but feel free to experiment.

 

Questions About Safety and Side Effects

Q: I felt anxious/tired/melancholy after performing the magick, and then several things went wrong and I had disturbed sleep/nightmares. Is this the magick going wrong?

A: A very small number of people find some initial discomfort when starting magick. The magick generally requires that you use emotional transmutation, and dealing with such deep emotions can stir things up within you. This is more likely if you have some resistance or guilt regarding the use of magick, or if you feel uncomfortable using magick to manifest money or other results. If you do feel uncomfortable, you can simply stop, and then start again at a later date and see if things improve. Many people, however, find that continuing for a few days helps them to get a clearer understanding of their emotions, and the discomfort soon passes. As for other apparent side-effects, these are most likely not caused by magick. As I once said in an article, ‘Bad things happen to people every day, so when somebody writes to me and says, “I started doing magick and my cat got sick,” I assume that cat just ate something bad. Magick is safe unless you deliberately go out of your way to attract trouble.’ See also: A Touch of the Supernatural.

Q: I think I’ve been cursed. Can you help me?

A: Most of the time what seems to be a curse is nothing more than normal life. Magick enables you to control your circumstances to get more of what you want with fewer dark times, so the best way to tackle a suspected curse is to begin controlling your destiny through magick. With that said, real curses do exist, and they can do a lot of harm. The protection book covers ways to stop and prevent curses.

Q: I’ve been brought up to believe magick is evil, but I want to try magick. Should I?

A: Possibly not, but the only way to find out is to try it out. It is very easy to do evil in the world without magick. Magick itself is not evil, and the magick in the books was designed with constraints to make it safe. Trust your intuition.

Q: If I do money magick, will my parents die so I can get their inheritance?

A: The story goes that you do money magick, and then your parents die in a car crash so you get some quick money and you have to live with the guilt forever. While it is true that magick does take the path of least resistance, there are much easier ways for you to get money than by having your parents die. If you try to curse somebody to death you’ll find it very difficult indeed, so don’t expect death to happen due to a magickal accident. The magick in these books has been constrained to remain safe, so you can be assured that nobody you care about will come to harm. Magick is about controlling your destiny, not having awful accidents happen to your loved ones. See The Balance Of Magick.

Q: Will I be punished or get bad karma when the magick works?

A: No. We’ve been associated with magick and many occultists for a long time. We have seen people cast the most terrible curses without any problems occurring. We have seen people accrue great wealth and nothing goes wrong for them. Magick is about making choices and deciding what happens to you, rather than letting life happen to you through a series of random events and the choices of others. There’s no reason you should have to pay for that freedom. See The Balance of Magick.

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

A: No.

  2. Hello Damon. Thanks you not only for the knowledge you’ve provided in your books but for answering our questions.

    I have a few questions, it may LOOK like a lot but I promise they’re straight forward.

    1. Could/would a servitor be used to maintain a 3.9 GPA in college (I have two more years left)?
    2. Out of your books (I have them all) I am struggling to figure out which would help me most (tmi) find pleasure in sex. As a young woman, I feel absolutely nothing. Could a servitor or one of the 72 angels be used for this?
    3. Again, out of all your books, is there a particular one that would be best used to achieve a desired body type? (Like if I want to achieve a curvier body type) If that’s even possible.
    4. Lastly. What do you suggest in order to avoid seeing or “feeling” angels? I can’t remember which blog post, but you recommend getting the magical protection book if you’re afraid of seeing or hearing angels and stuff like that. I still want to practice, but I don’t want to see them or anything like that. I’m a scaredy cat. Lol Which chapter in Magickal Protection should I refer to?

    Again, thank you so much should you choose to answer my questions!

        3. Although you asked about body shape rather than weight loss, this answer appears above, and is essentially the same:

        Q: Is there a ritual to lose weight?

        A: There is nothing aimed directly at weight loss. When it comes to magick you need to break down the problem, and then tackle each aspect of the problem with magick. With weight loss, it is nearly always willpower that is the problem. So, there is Dedicate Yourself To A New Skill in Words of Power, which can help with your personal dedication to a project. The Power To Improve Physical Health from The 72 Angels of Magick can support your efforts. There are other rituals in that book that also help with other areas of the self, and they may be useful. Perhaps the most useful book would be The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise, as it covers willpower and also works with many areas of the self and the personality. But these are not rituals that can make you lose weight. They can only shore up your own determination. See also this article: https://galleryofmagick.com/2016/04/08/the-power-of-magickal-decision/

        4. Most people want the opposite, so that’s quite interesting. The Master Protection and Sword Banishing are all you need. If you remain closed off to seeing angels, in your own mind and heart, you are unlikely to see them, or even feel a presence. I can’t guarantee that, though. You may get a surprise, but you’d be amazed how many people long for some sort of direct connection like that. Just make sure that when you do the rituals, you feel as though you are talking to an actual entity, rather than just to a name or thin air.

  3. I noticed there is another gentleman named Will posting questions, hence the name difference on this post.

    My question for you is do you have any publications on magickal theory that you would recommend outside of the Gallery?

    I saw your post about not wanting to discuss magickal theory and I’m not asking you to do so, as I understand your wanton in approaching a subject so endless and filled with arguments on every side.

    I am not an experienced occultist. I began my journey down this path after reading Psychic Self Defense by Dion Fortune at age 17. After reading her book, many paranormal, unexplainable (at times frightening) things happened to me and I have been filled with wonder ever since. There are other publications of hers that I am interested in picking up, but I have seen that some mages condemn the teachings of the Golden Dawn. I don’t know why and am not going to ask you why, because I’m sure that is a whole other discussion that you don’t want to go into. HAHA.

    So if you would be so kind could you, in your experience, recommend something along the lines that benefited you in your early days? I am 27 now and am taking this path seriously. I love the practical stance and measures that you have implemented in your work, but as someone seeking to delve deeper what is out there that would benefit me?

    I’ve read the Kybalion and am currently reading the Inner Temple of Witchcraft by Christopher Penczak.

    If you do not wish to point me in any direction that is fine. I understand that this is a path of self discovery, and many take that deeply to heart.

    Thank you very much!

    1. It’s really difficult to answer, in part because we have now have a policy of not recommending, or condemning, anybody else’s work. The moment you do, you open a can of worms. If you recommend something, does that mean you support everything by what writer? No, but it may look like it. If you criticise a work, are you declaring war on another occultist? No, but it may look like it. So it’s better for everybody if we publish what we publish, to enable practical magick, and leave it at that.

      It also depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for practical magick, there wasn’t much around when I was starting out. If you’re looking for theory, then you’ll probably end up reading everything from The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses to Crowley, Agrippa, the Greek Magickal Papyri, and all the other standard getting-to-know-you texts, as well as absorbing all the GD and related works. And that’s just to get an idea of what’s going on. Which is why we focus on the practical. There’s a million pages of theory out there already.

      And if you do want to delve deeper, then it really is a case of reading everything. You see patterns emerging, behind the dogma. But the ultimate way to delve deeper is to experience magick.

  7. Hello Damon,
    I am pleased to hear that you will be continuing to write books individually and along with your colleagues, as I own many of your books and appreciate the efforts you place within the creation and development of each book.

    Over the past couple of years I have begun to practice magick. I have been drawn to magic for most of my life, however only after reading a synopis of one my first book authored by you, I felt comfortable enough to attempt exposure and development of the rituals involved with magick.

    Unfortunately, I feel that my attempts to sucessfully perform macick spells or practice magick, has gone without success thus far, as I feel at this point, it must be that I am obviously a bad actor…? And so this is the basis of my contact.

    Possibly could my lack of successfully perform a magick spell to receive some sort of outcome be due to my past upbringingof being taught or told that bad could happen if you perform magick spells especially if you do not know what you are doing? As well, I have been told that “I am a sensitive,” thus cautioned to not perform magick spells, occult, etc. Would you know from your years of experience if this is true? If so, what can I do to prevent this from happening to me because the last thing I want to do is open Pandora ‘ s box? Is there a book you can recommend of guidence that would be helpful for a novice to read to better understand more about spells, occult, witchcraft? I feel I am still in the novice stages of understanding and, although I own several of the books you have written along with Zanne’s newest book, and sincerely appreciate the care both of you have made to assure understanding, safety and security for the reader and user of your spells, I feel as though I am missing the specifics not identified within the context of the books I currently own.

    As I have mentioned, I have enoyed the books you have written which I currently own several, and I like that within your writings, you clearly state that your way of practice, is created to be safe for the user or practicer. Yet, while I attempt to do spells, I feel the results of which the spell is identifying seem to never unfold. Plus, about the only thing I do notice whenever attempting spells, is on several occasions, the room will become quieter than normal as theose ever present background noises or sounds become silenced and I cannot hear the sounds of the night like, cars pasding by several street over, or yhe humm of my overhead light, etc., the brightness from the overhead white light will now dim and illuminate a yellowish cast, and things around me, as well as my own body, will become “more precise,” “clearer,” “high-lighted,” “pronounced,” plus, I feel as though I am suddenly being watched or no longer alone. And, when I say that I feel as though I am being watched, I feel as if I am being viewed through and through. At which point, I close my books, and walk away. Is this a part of casting spells? Am I doing the spells correctly? Is this possibly a part of doing the spelks? As other times, I feel nothing at all. Also, I understand that protection spells, home cleansing spells are done for personal protection, yet, I will get this feeling during these type of spells too.

    I feel as though I have either missed something? Thus, the request for a recommendation of another book to aid me with filling in the blanks to identify exactly what my attempted spells must be missing for them to not provide me any results, except possibly one. And, this result is a big one which gets me to close my books and seek to find that missing link between what I do not understand and your books. The link I am searching for is to feel confident and comfortable with doing my spells with the knowing that bad will not sneek in from a back door and haunt me.

    Thank you for your books, assisted collaborations with other authors too. Also, I appreciate your assistance on my particular matter as well.

    1. Thanks for buying the books. Many people overcome an upbringing that tells them magick is evil, but yes, it can certainly slow things down. You need to get to a place where you feel comfortable and confident with the magick.

      I often hear people on these pages telling me that somebody else has told them that they are ‘sensitive’, and yet this doesn’t ring true for the person being told. Unless you feel particularly sensitive, I wouldn’t take such suggestions seriously. If you do feel that you have an extended perception, that usually means that magick will come to you quite easily.

      Magick does not open Pandora’s box. See: https://galleryofmagick.com/2015/06/02/the-balance-of-magick/

      The effects you notice can be explored here: https://galleryofmagick.com/2015/07/21/a-touch-of-the-supernatural/

      Don’t worry too much about doing it correctly. The best advice I can give you is to read The Power of Magick, free on this page (at the top), as well as these articles:

      https://galleryofmagick.com/2016/03/10/the-truth-about-magick-that-works/

      https://galleryofmagick.com/2016/04/08/the-power-of-magickal-decision/

      There is always something you can do to improve you chances of success. If all else fails, take a break from magick, where you truly let go of results. Some people find that when they stop doing magick, a few months later they look back and realise the magick actually has worked. This is only required if you’re truly blocked, and only works if you genuinely stop looking for results.

      You asked for a book, and I generally recommend The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise, for this. Contemplation Magick is one of the best ways to find out what you need to know about yourself and your situation.

    Like

    1. No, I do not worship Satan. That’s quite a leap. Most of the work is angelic. Some is not. But it’s worth noting that some people think any form of magick is evil. After that, it’s all up for debate. Sorry it’s disappointing, but this from the FAQ above may clarify:

      Q: Are you working with black magick or white magick or something else?

      A: Magick is neutral, like a scalpel. You can use a scalpel to perform surgery, to attack and mutilate somebody or to sharpen a pencil. It’s how you use the magick, and your moral standing and sense of self, that matters. Magick is neutral and can only be evil if you make it evil.

      Q: Do I need to belong to a particular religion?

      A: No. The magick is even used successfully by atheists. But only you can know whether you feel the magick conflicts with your religion. More important than religious belief, by far, is a willingness to open the pathways to change, to approach it with confidence, to be casual at the same time, and to be open-minded rather than testing it out to see if it works.

      Q: I’ve been brought up to believe magick is evil, but I want to try magick. Should I?

      A: Possibly not, but the only way to find out is to try it out. It is very easy to do evil in the world without magick. Magick itself is not evil, and the magick in the books was designed with constraints to make it safe. Trust your intuition.

      And this is from the book in question:

      Q: Wealth Magick appears to use demons as well as angels. Is that safe? I’m worried that something bad may happen to make the money come to me. I don’t want to work with evil beings.

      A: Angels can be destructive and harmful. Demons can be gentle and helpful. What one person calls a demon, another calls an angel. We do not believe that any of these beings are necessarily evil. Nothing is evil until it does evil. There is no doubt that some are more destructive and unpredictable than others, but this system has been designed so that you can access their powers safely. If you are afraid of demons, remember that many people say a demon can only do work with divine permission or when guided by an angel. Others think that all angels are merely messengers and that when angels cause change they do so by employing hosts of demons. Whatever the truth, you have nothing to fear from the demons in this book.

      There will always be propaganda about demonic danger, and if you listen to it, you will never work with demons. Nothing I can say will change that. But I can say that demonic work is safer than dealing with many of the ordinary people we encounter in the real world.

      If you’re afraid, though, nothing I can say will change that, and it might be worth working with other magick for a while. I often hear that when people have spent some time with all different kinds of magick, they get a sense of spiritual authority and feel more confident with this kind of work. Magickal Riches has no demonic content, so might be a good starting point. Having Magickal Protection to hand might make you feel safer.

      Dreams do mean different things to different people, and to some degree that is the power of this word; it’s ambiguity. A dream is something unreal, something hoped for, something achieved. That’s why it’s used there.

      If you prefer to change it, keep it as short and simple as possible. ‘Accomplish my desires’, or something similar might not be ultra accurate, but is better than too wide a description. It needs to be so easy to understand that it feels right without even having to think about it.

      With sufficient precautions and knowledge, such offerings can work, of course, but in the current books it is not recommended because it is not required to get results. I know that many occultists consider offerings to be a cornerstone of the great work, but I have found that your skills, your ability to connect with spirits, and your results, all benefit from working with emotions alone, as an offering. In part, the approach arose from the practical requirements of the time. Working in secret, in a house that belonged to somebody else, it was impractical to have an altar, and to pour alcohol on the floor, and so on, so I longed for a way of working with spirits that did not involve such offerings. That is what we have now. Of course, anybody who reads our books is free to adapt the techniques as they see fit.

    1/ I made my cashbook and I am on day 6 of the ritual. For the first few days I hid the cashbook in a black folder. After reading through the FAQ’s I realised this may be a mistake. Should I add a few extra days past the 11 days?

    3/ I’ve been told by two different mediums that I am psychic. Although I have heard seen and felt lots of things I can’t logically explain I am only beginning to develop, and I’ve been looking for as much information as possible. It seems to me like your books would be very beneficial to me, is there any books or rituals in particular you could direct me to please? Also do you know of any other sources were I can find more info on developing myself? It seems like meditation is a core activity, but I really need to know more.

    Thanks again

    1. Thank you.

      No problem with the black folder. You can add extras days, but there’s probably no need. Less worry and more magick is the best way forward.

      On the second point, there’s probably no need, if the job is yours.

      We have a book on this subject within six months, hopefully. In the meantime I know that some people have found that working with Zanna’s book on sigils, they have found an increase in psychic energy. Others have said that then Protection Magick did the same thing. The 72 Angels book contains power for directly affecting psychic ability.

  29. I have bought a few of your books but haven’t used any yet. In magickal seduction, which ritual can be used to get an ex lover back, to rekindle contact and seduce them. I don’t want to use the 2nd ritual to fall in love as I’m afraid of forcing things. But contact has been limited due to a recent argument and I would like to calm things down and get her back in my life, so which of these rituals would you suggest. Or is there another book I could use a ritual from ?

    1. Thanks for buying the books. There are several ways of going about this, but you might find The Angels of Love by Zanna Blaise useful. It’s all about finding a soulmate, but you can use the individual workings, and there is a ritual to Heal a Damaged Relationship. In The 72 Angels of Magick there is an angel who can bring calm between arguing lovers, an angel who can reunite lovers and many other angels who could be used depending on the exact nature of the current situation.

                    1. Angels work for us, but appearing to us in full view is not their primary purpose. When you work with them to get results, it may seem indirect because there are no flashes of light or brushes of wings, but it is a very direct contact – your desire has been communicated clearly, and the angel has responded with a result. Any time you do that, you form a connection that can be built on. By the same token, I believe that any time you perform magick you are making connection to your HGA more likely – it still requires direct work, but the act of magick is in itself a form of reaching out.

  34. Hello Damon,
    I just recently became a huge fan of yours.
    I am starting out with your book Words Of Power,and to make it short, I am amazed!!!
    So of course I ordered and will be ordering other books by you.
    I feel like I’m taking some control over my life for once!!!
    I have a few questions but I’ll ask one for now…
    Can you suggest or maybe possibly gallery of magick will be coming out with work regarding beauty magick of all sorts and maintaining youth magick.
    I know it’s a bit superficial and more rare topic in magick, but I know it’s very real as I have seen someone use it and get results!!!
    Let’s just say I know someone who years ago went to visit overseas to where my family is from and while there she went to a witch that was recommended to her by her friend there and came back looking at least 20 years younger.
    Me and my mom could not believe our eyes but it was real!!!
    My aunt left looking my moms age ( in her late 40’s early 50’s look)and came back looking like she was 30!!!
    Among with other things like finally being able to lose weight for good after being overweight for a long time.
    Multiple great job offers where before she couldn’t find any job in her field etc.
    She didn’t get into details but I knew what was happening.
    Now I don’t know how she looks these days, but she is still working and still slim from what I hear.
    I don’t know if she still looks young.
    But I can’t travel there for a few reasons, one is a financial reason and it’s not really of a huge importance to me.
    But I would love to know if you know anything regarding this type of magick because i would love to use this.
    Thank you in advance

    1. Thank you. Glad you’re enjoying the control you want.

      There are two ways to approach this. One is to cast a glamour (the makes people se more beauty than is there), and the other is to work on your own energy – when you’re coursing with inner energy, you look a lot younger. So there will be no book on beauty, per se, but there should be work that can be applied in this way. It won’t be a miracle cure for age, but I find that anybody who works with magickal energy a lot tends to be thought of as youthful. Not wanting to brag, but just two days ago somebody underestimated my age by eighteen years. OK, so I bragged a little.

      In the meantime, the angelic magick can be directed towards this sort of thing. And although it may seem superficial, feeling good about the way you look can have an affect on everything you do, not least your personal relationships and your career.

    1. Sorry to hear about your situation.

      Magick won’t wreck your life by accident. It can cause disruption. If you’re using Wealth magick please see: https://galleryofmagick.com/wealth-magick-faq/

      Other than that it might help to read this: https://galleryofmagick.com/2015/05/22/did-something-magickal-happen/ And it’s the paragraph that end with, “Magick is usually safe unless you deliberately go out of your way to attract trouble,’ that really applies.

      So you’re unlikely to have made a mistake. It’s possible magick has even lessened the disaster. But maybe that’s wishful thinking on my part, so you might want to look at the depression. What caused your mood to shift? Do you have any blockages or guilt related to wealth. If you feel guilty, the resistance can cause the magick to affect you as the new reality presses in on you. If you have no guilt or problem with money, it could be that there’s some resistance to the change required for that money. Or it could be coincidence.

      Try to avoid feeling desperate, or in the middle of a disaster – what appears to be a disaster rarely is, when we look back. I hope that is the case here, and remaining confident, while ensuring the magick is in keeping with what you genuinely want, is the best way forward.

  37. Hi Damon,

    I just purchased the Wealth Magick book, thanks for making it available!

    I have a question regarding working with demons. I’m not scared of them, and I wouldn’t even mind seeing one manifest before me. However demons, unlike angels are considered selfish entities. As far as I understand, the purpose of angels is to help the mankind, and the angelic magick doesn’t have any backlash.

    What about working with demons? There’s a saying that with demons you get “nothing for nothing”, something has to be offered in return.

    I want to understand what I’m getting into by working with demons. What do I have to give up in return?

    Please excuse my ignorance regarding this topic. I really feel like doing the wealth magick, but I’m afraid of possible consequences. I humbly ask you to enlighten me on this subject.

    Like

    1. Thanks for buying the book. Please don’t apologise. I’d rather hear an intelligent question than have you just give up and move away from magick.

      First, this is from the FAQ on The Hidden Books Page.

      Q: Wealth Magick appears to use demons as well as angels. Is that safe? I’m worried that something bad may happen to make the money come to me. I don’t want to work with evil beings.

      A: Angels can be destructive and harmful. Demons can be gentle and helpful. What one person calls a demon, another calls an angel. We do not believe that any of these beings are necessarily evil. Nothing is evil until it does evil. There is no doubt that some are more destructive and unpredictable than others, but this system has been designed so that you can access their powers safely. If you are afraid of demons, remember that many people say a demon can only do work with divine permission or when guided by an angel. Others think that all angels are merely messengers and that when angels cause change they do so by employing hosts of demons. Whatever the truth, you have nothing to fear from the demons in this book.

      To pick up on the points you raise directly, I do not think demons are selfish any more than they are subservient. They serve us when commanded with authority. Angels are not there to serve humanity, so much as to follow the commands given to them. They are messengers, after all, and the messages they carry are often instructions to demons. Call on an angel for a physical result and the angel probably get demons to do the dirty work.

      Sacrifice is almost a religion to some occultists. They believe that angels and demons must be appeased with offerings. If that works for you, great. I have not found it to be necessary. There are methods of emotional sacrifice that can be used, and we have not published those yet, but offering up chunks of meat, and hoards of flowers, and months of incense – just seems like a waste of time to me. I gather it works from some great and respected occultists, but I simply don’t find it a requirement.

      I also think that continually offering up gifts to entities doesn’t show respect so much as a sort of cowering fear, and the belief that we have to do what the demon says. It really should be the other way around. We are like good managers – giving orders that the workers are there to follow. We are not slaver drivers, but nor do we have to beg.

      There will always be propaganda about demonic danger, and if you listen to it, you will never work with demons. Nothing I can say will change that. But I can say that demonic work is safer than dealing with many of the ordinary people we encounter in the real world.

      If you’re afraid, though, nothing I can say will change that, and it might be worth working with other magick for a while. I often hear that when people have spent some time with all different kinds of magick, they get a sense of spiritual authority and feel more confident with this kind of work. Magickal Riches has no demonic content, so might be better for you. Or having Magickal Protection to hand might make you feel safer.

      Also, I know that many people buy the book without reading the full description on the Amazon page, so it might be worth adding the disclaimers here:

      WARNING: This book uses angels and demons to attain your desires. The entire working is made safe by three omnipotent angels who oversee the operation, but if the thought of working with demons makes you uneasy, look to my other books such as Magickal Cashbook and Magickal Riches, which have no demonic content.

      DISCLAIMER: Magick is not for everybody. If you are drawn to magick, you will get good results. If you are afraid of magick, you will not. The magick in Damon Brand’s books has been developed by The Gallery of Magick to get results safely. There is plenty of evil in the world, but there is no evil in these books. You will not be punished by karma or chased down by demons, and there is no magickal backlash that will punish you for being rich. But if you are afraid of magick or think that magick is evil or that you are underserving of wealth, this book is not for you. If you’re uncertain, you can read more about magick on the website. If you feel that magick can help you take control of your life, then welcome the power that this book offers.

Thank you so much to you and to GOM for publishing your work! I was always drawn to magick, but didn’t feel like ceremonial magic was something I wanted to try. I always felt that just the words should be enough. I have tried a few rituals from The Magickal Protection and a few from the Words of Power and they all were extremely successful. I’ve seen an amazing turn around fast – like within hours. I even didn’t have to do it for 5 days as it was recommended – once was enough. I am trying to be patient and not stack the magick. I am currently working with only one angel – Raziel, and it’s getting easier and more rewarding to work with him. I have a question. I am very much drawn to the healing magick, but I couldn’t find much of it in your books. Will it be possible for GOM to write a book on Healing Magick? I could help so many people and animals with it.

      There is great pleasure to be found in healing, but I am always at pains to ensure that magick is not offered before conventional methods. It’s possible we may publish something in the future – there are some that want to – but I would not feel comfortable saying ‘buy this book and cure cancer’, because I would feel like a fraud.

  42. Hi, Damon.

    Bought 4 of your books: Words, 72 Angels, Cashbook, and Servitors. I commend you on your writing style for this, as it’s very succinct and reader-friendly.

    Admittedly, I was confused when starting with ‘Words’ and reading the Hebrew from right to left then the power words from left to right, and I actually started reading the power words right to left as well when I did my first rituals.

    I re-did them correctly, and began a ritual with Ariel a few days later as you suggest to help know what it is I truly want, and for some quick abundant money.

    Well, the abundant money is now on it’s way (10 d into the ritual). A relative sold a house in less than a week (after 6 months of trying unsuccessfully) and my wife and I are getting a cut of the proceeds in the amount I was desiring.

    Also, I did a ritual for Making Your Money Go Further. It’s working like a charm!

    But, since starting the rituals, I’ve had some unusual negatives occur.
    a) the day after starting a words of power for being well thought-of/win a competition, a former client called in and threatened to sue me for something I didn’t do.
    b) within a week, a new client came in screaming at my wife and me (we work together) about a lack of signage around our building (which we rent, not own…and which has adequate visible signage that has worked for thousands of others in 16 years),
    c) within a week, I took a small chunk off my chin shaving, taking 20 minutes to stop the bleeding (unusual as this has never happened in 34 years of shaving)
    d) and within a week, some kid in a school bus gave me the ‘middle finger’ when I was in my car waiting for the bus to drive by.

    None of these is going to ruin my life, but they are trivial little annoyances that make no sense to me.

    So, if I am supposed to accept that the “good” coincidental occurrences that happened with the money are a result of the magick, what am I supposed to think of these unusual pesky annoyances?

    I have had experience in perceiving “entities” (soul fragments or other forms) in my personal space/energetic body that I have used in the past in a servitor-like fashion. Would/Could they feel some spite/jealousy because I’m now doing magick, rather than continuing to use them???

    I’d appreciate your insight/opinions.

    And again, well done on your books. Your writing style is very pragmatic and for an application-based (how-to) learning method, is superb. Kudos to you. I will likely buy whatever you write.

    Kind regards,

    Michael

    1. Hello Michael, and thanks for your kinds words.

      Although it seems really convenient for me to say, ‘good coincidences are magick’ and ‘bad coincides are not magick’, I do think that is the case most of the time. If there’s any fear or trepidation it’s easy to focus on issues and assume they are caused by magick. All the things you list can happen on an ordinary day. Or maybe not. Only you can know that.

      If you are ever bothered, just throw in the basic rituals from Magickal Protection and you will be fine. But the most magical life is never free of all issues. Please see: https://galleryofmagick.com/2015/08/17/the-charmed-magickal-life/

      And I’m sure you saw this in the FAQ above, but if not, here it is:

      Q: I felt anxious/tired/melancholy after performing the magick, and then several things went wrong and I had disturbed sleep/nightmares. Is this the magick going wrong?

      A: A very small number of people find some initial discomfort when starting magick. The magick generally requires that you use emotional transmutation, and dealing with such deep emotions can stir things up within you. This is more likely if you have some resistance or guilt regarding the use of magick, or if you feel uncomfortable using magick to manifest money or other results. If you do feel uncomfortable, you can simply stop, and then start again at a later date and see if things improve. Many people, however, find that continuing for a few days helps them to get a clearer understanding of their emotions, and the discomfort soon passes. As for other apparent side-effects, these are most likely not caused by magick. As I once said in an article, ‘Bad things happen to people every day, so when somebody writes to me and says, “I started doing magick and my cat got sick,” I assume that cat just ate something bad. Magick is safe unless you deliberately go out of your way to attract trouble.’

  43. I have been using the Master Curse from Magickal Attack. The process is extremely cathartic and I feel as though I have been through a clearing session every time I perform the MC. My enemy has yet to be affected directly, as far as I can tell, but it takes some time for information to filter back to me. He may have protection, so I am continuing to repeat it as long as it takes until I get results, whether this be three times or three hundred.

    I have discovered that he tried to kill me a while back and I would like to return the favor and put him out of misery with finality. None of your other books seem to have magick for this purpose and I would prefer not to resort to rotting lemons, dolls, rusty nails and cursing oil. Do you have recommended death curses?

    1. It is more than likely that your enemy is being affected. You’ve probably heard me say this before, but people go to great lengths to hide their pain in order to appear strong. In cases such as this it’s usual to discover at a later date that the curse had a stronger effect than you ever realised.

      I’m glad to hear it’s cathartic and I can only advise to aim for catharsis, and let a peace come over you. Many people report great relief, and that’s ultimately what you’re looking for. If you seek a death curse, it’s not really death you want, but relief. If you’re seeking vengeance, that can eat away at you as you’re still being cooked in the flames of the experience. Far better to find peace.

      Also, despite many wild claims, I find that death curses are not effective. Certainly, the sort you mention are rarely able to shake the foundations of reality. Although we can kill with a movement of hands so small it’s barely perceptible, the ability to change the course of another’s life so radically through magick is not granted so easily. To be effective, death curses require the same level of commitment (or casual disregard for life) that would be required to actually murder somebody. And I obviously don’t advocate that, so I can’t advocate reaching for that state of mind. The purpose of the magick is to find relief and peace, so I hope it can do that for you.

  44. Hi Damon…. I have two questions I didn’t see yet here (I sincerely looked and hope I didn’t miss an already-written answer…) Here goes: 1. I’m working with the wealth book (the original with both demons and angels) and the new love book. I don’t feel I am lusting for results. I feel actually quite patient. But, I yearned to try some of the rituals I hadn’t got to yet. I enjoyed them so much that I’d like to do, say 3 or 4 of the wealth rituals and love rituals at the same time. Would there be any problem doing multiple rituals at once from these books, so long as one is patient for results and adhering to each ritual’s timings?

    2. I know Book A might not be released for some time. Since it is expected to be expensive, is there a range of pricing that it may be? That way those of us who really want this publishing can at least have a roundabout figure and be prepared to purchase it?

    Thanks very much.

    1. Hello.

      1. No harm in mixing magick per se, but with the Wealth Book its recommend that you do things in sequence, partly because each section builds on the last and it’s better to let the work of one section feed into the next.

      In the FAQ above, there’s this question and answer, which might help.

      “Q: Can I perform magick from several books at the same time?

      A: Yes. Many people find exactly what they’re looking for using one book alone, others get the best results using combinations. You might, for example, use the Cashbook, Magickal Riches and the Job Seeker if that suits your circumstances. Others may use just one book. Other people want to try seduction at the same time as money magick. This is all fine, so long as you feel you have the energy to commit to the magick with full concentration. Given the relative ease of the rituals, that is fine for most people. When it comes to angelic work the first book says, ‘One perfectly chosen angel will do a better job than three that might help the situation.’ This is true, but if you feel the need to combine several angels, or several forms of magick, you can do so. The most important thing is to ensure that you don’t do this out of desperation or to make the magick happen faster. It’s better to take a calm approach to getting results in stages than to do everything at once.”

      2. This is out of my hands now, but I get the feeling that Book A is several years away. There are many, many books to come before then, and right now nobody’s in a huge rush. The new authors do not write as fast as me, so books are going to be coming slowly and steadily. (There will be five or more in the next six months, but it might slow down for a long time after that.) As for cost, nothing has been decided. It might be released at a low cost for a limited time, or a high cost for a long time, or some other combination. We don’t want to make it unaffordable for people who want it, but we’re also fairly keen that it doesn’t go out to casual users. When there’s news it will be posted here. Thanks for your interest.
