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.

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.

  1. Ok, here’s a big question. I understand if it’s not posted. Would it be possible to buy copies of the private or the hard to find grimoires that TGOM has? I’d still love to buy all your future releases due to the fact of how you all break everything down. It’s like having someone answer all the questions before you even think of one. I love to learn and critically think, so I’d be able to see so much more of how certain aspect are connected. It helps the Ah Ha moments pop out. I’m an RN so it’s in my nature to dig deeper and try to see what isn’t on the surface and how it connects with anything else. Just thought I’d ask, the worst that could happen is you say no or you cant!! 🙂 Either way, thank you very much and take care!!!!

    P.S. Also because I’d love to get any type of Book A!!

    1. Yes and no. Some of the stuff we’ve worked with is around already – you just have to know where to look. But one primary text on Kabbalah will set you back $200, and you have to be able to read Hebrew. An English translation of the same book might cost you $2000. That’s for one book. My personal library has shelves full of them. And that’s my *personal* library. And that’s just kabbalah, which is only a fraction of the story – one way of framing things. So yes, you can, but it has to be a personal journey of knowing what you want, what you can spend and what you’re actually looking for. It tends to be a life’s work. But we couldn’t give you a reading list without everybody sitting down for hours and writing it all out. The collected library we have is more pleasantly catalogued, but aspects of that are secret. It sounds so grand and mysterious when put that way! And don’t get me wrong – half the books we own are the cheap ones that were put out in the eighties and that everybody owns. Some of the best ideas were in plain sight, all along – you see it appear in one weird place, and then another, and it all starts to fit together.

      The other thing is that the private collection we refer to at times is exactly that – a private collection that will most likely be passed to a museum at some point, because it contains cases of materials. Although we all have copies of bits of these materials in our own possession, it’s way beyond the scope of what we do to make these available. Even Book A, which was a summary of the important materials made practical, was/is huge. What you get from us during the coming years when we publish books is the important stuff. Because, just as with the old and famous grimoires, what we own contained a lot of half-done, encoded, wrong, rubbish and confusing material, as well as pure heavenly gold. Book A is making its way not the current books, a line here a line there, and with Sigils of Power starting the flow properly, and it will shape and colour a lot of what we do. A lot of the connection and things you’re interested in will be visible with time. The books, a year or two from now, will appear richer, deeper – they will remain practical. Even the two books coming out mid-year will lean in this direction. What we publish from now on it’s all Book A, just to make that clear, but those materials will bleed into the rest of the works where they need to.

      1. Well said. I understand where you are coming from and respect it. As you know, there are just waaaay too many books out there with half truths or claiming to know the secrets . Then you buy them for $20-$30 and a third of it is a retread if history from other books and dogmatic theory. Then the application part of it is a small part of the whole. Book after book. One thing that jumped out at me the first time I read TGOM books was the emotional transmutation. Everything else in your rituals have been said a million times in a million wsys, except that. I kinda felt stupid cause it seemed so obvious. Alchemy. I just didn’t fit the pieces together properly. I love talking to people so much more knowledgeable than myself cause it helps me riff off them and put the pieces together. Unfortunately, with this area, everyone is an expert and very few know shit. Even fewer actually practice. Then to ask that they don’t have an enormous ego? Forget it. Then you all came along and blew the doors open.
        I was just putting that out there cause I was hoping to save some money but most importantly time with my learning. I kinda thought that the progression of your books would grow in depth. Especially when looking back at the ones that have come out and how they progressed. Kinda like taking our hand and leading us the best way possible.
        What I’m looking for in style is honestly everything. I want to try all I can and try to fit things together, see the underlying currents with it. I want to do Goetia but properly. There is soooo much disinformation out there about it. I’m not scared, just don’t know how to do it. Respect is a big thing with me and I want to properly show it and gratitude to them. What do I need to do it properly and such. Plus the HGA is a big deal to me. Not the be all, end all, more like getting connected with my tutor.
        I thank you greatly for all you have done and have enormous gratitude and respect for you all.

  2. Sorry if this is a redundant question. Damon stated he was going to release the HGA book early 2017. Now that he isn’t going to release any books until 2018 does that mean someone else is taking over with it? Or is it being pushed back until next year?

  3. Hello. Thanks for taking the time out to respond to our inquiries. I have 3 short questions, I promise.

    I have nearly all the books and I’m having a hard time figuring which methods to choose. I know you all like us to do our own thinking to see which works best for us, but I’d much rather have your input. Lol

    1. Which book (and method or entity therein) would be best for massive procrastination?

    2. Which book (and method or entity therein) would be best for stopping my obsession with being with someone that doesn’t want me? I.e. Cutting the cord.

    3. Which book (and method or entity therein) would be best for persuading my sugar daddy to be more generous with me? (I know it’s frown upon, please don’t judge)

    Thank you much !!

    1. The reason we want you work it out for yourself is that your answers will be better than mind. I don’t know what the underlying situation is. Although you give some details, I’d need to talk to you for hours to really know who you are and whether the things that need to change are within or without. But I can give a few guidelines, but you’ll still need to see if it suits you and your situation.

      1. Sigils of Power, by ME, has Overcome Procrastination. Best used in combination with rituals in that book for confidence and willpower, as they usually undermine everything unless wealth with.

      2. The 72 Sigils of Power by Zanna Blaise. Not a quick fix or shortcut – you have to read the whole book and see which names and sigils will help you understand the connection, break it, recover and so on. But that’s the book!

      3. You could create a servitor, using Magical Servitors by Damon, or Attract Generosity From Others in Words of Power. A servitor would be better, but takes longer, more dedication to the magick etc.

  4. I’m posting this comment myself in reply to a (deleted) question that the reader asked me to remove. We don’t normally allow this, for many reasons, but I’m making an exception due to the complex nature of the particular question and circumstance.

    In summary, the reader, who I’ll refer to go in good old James Bond style as M, has had great success with magick, only to find that it’s all been taken away again. He’s wise enough to know that this is not magickal backlash, karma or payback from the spirits, but he wants to know what’s going on. Could it be that his family is cursed? The same problem afflicts his brother, and he is literally going from a life of riches to living in a tent in a forest, with his means of making a living being damaged/destroyed. He asked if I could look into his family history to see if I could ascertain the presence of a curse – there is good reason to think it might be so.

    I’ve become quite good at divination of various kinds, but on this occasion I chose to evoke an angel to give me answers, and one thing that really gets to me is that you can ask an angel for information on something like this and the feedback you get is almost as bad as that you get from a fairground tarot reader. ‘Everything is cloudy. It may be one thing, or the opposite.’ Sigh. It can be really, really frustrating, but that is more my problem than the angel’s, and it’s down to me to interpret what I received.

    So, M, what I did get from my look into this is that I should communicate the following ideas. They should trigger or click in some way for you. They might sound like a stream of irrelevant ideas, and stuff that doesn’t apply – but after my evocation, this is the clear(ish) impression I got of what I should pass on, so I hope it does click.

    The first thing is that I got a resounding no, that there is no family curse. Except (I told you it was like a crappy tarot reading), except that your familial circumstances may have set you up for this in some way. What that means, I don’t know, but I think it may mean that something about the way life, money, luck or even magick was perceived may have rubbed off, may have left you feeling it wasn’t right. A word that came up over and over during this evocation was ‘deserve’, and that does not mean you deserve to be where you are, but there may be difficulty in accepting that you deserve the good life. I am, as you can see, doing a lot of guesswork here. But ‘deserve’ is a key word. You do deserve, but may not think so. That can be like a self-curse. You get to the top, and then something very deep seated in you wishes it was not like that. I am so, so, so wary of saying this, because it sounds like that Law of Attraction stuff that you attract everything, and to me that is just victim blaming. But, I got the word ‘deserve’ and the feeling that you may not feel you deserve the good times, on some level. If I’m interpreting that badly, maybe you can do a better job with the meaning of ‘deserve’.

    You mentioned that you’re borrowing money and feeling humiliated. I get that, utterly. Been there more often than I ever wanted, even once I’d started magick. Not the magick’s fault – my fault for being rubbish with money when I was very young. But back to the point – the main thing now is to refuse the current circumstance and make your choices, using whatever you have to get back where you want to be. I got the very strong impression that even though things are worse for you now than most people ever dream of, you are not stuck, and you have everything you need to get moving. Now, that directly contradicts what you told me. You don’t have your laptop now, and you need it. So I presume this is meant magicaklly – you have all you need to place your focus, trust and energy in the right place to get the transformation this current situation can lead you to.

    The universe is not trying to teach you a lesson or offer you a new direction, but I get the feeling that you will do more than just recover from this, but will find something new as a result of it. Now I really do sound like a cheapo tarot reader. Sorry. I hope it makes sense to you.

    That’s what I got. If it’s no help, I wish it could be. And maybe it will reveal something to you in time.

    You asked about protection. That didn’t come up in the evocation, and I’m not sure what you’re doing about it already, but to be on the safe side you should do the works – the Master Protection Ritual, SB daily and all the curse removal stuff, finding enemies – all of it, if you can find the time and energy. It might be useful. There may be no family curse, but when there’s a storm of bad luck you might want to say ‘better safe than sorry’.

  5. Hi Adam,

    In 111 Sigils of Power and Transformation, there’s one called “Encourage Love”. Questions:

    1. Just wondering if you ever used it to attract a romantic love from an opposite sex? I’m curious if you can give a real life example…i.e.: how long it took, and what sort of reaction / romantic behaviours you started noticing from the other individual after using that sigil.

    2. What does exactly does that sigil do? Does it cause the energy from the universal consciousness to enhance the love/romantic feelings buried within someone? (I’ve got a science background and really curious about its exact mechanism :-))

    3. Does that sigil (along with the other ones) actually create a temporary effect, or permanent? Let’s say I use it to attract the love of a specific person, and it works….but how long will it work? Does the sigil’s effect have an “expiry” time? Or is it more permanent? How’s your experience been like?

    1. Hi. This might better off posted on the FAQ page for that book- https://galleryofmagick.com/sigils-of-power-faq/ , but I’ll answer here to speed things up.

      1.) This week people have been asking for real life stories – we’re still debating whether or not to do this. It can sound kind of fake if you tell a load of great stories, which is why we like to have them contributed in reviews or on the Success Stories page, by people other than us. That may change, and there will be a book out in a couple of years that tells a LOT of stories about how all this magick has worked. For now, forgive me if I leave it at that – except I can say I do know for a fact this works, but as for noticing behaviours that is like noticing a breeze; different for everybody and some won’t even notice.

      2.) Open to debate, but note that it says there needs to be something there to work with – so it’s taking what’s there and making it more viable, removing blocks that prevent its fulfilment, amongst other things. But as a rule we don’t get into the theory too much here. I get your interest, of course, but we just don’t have time to theorize on top of everything else.

      3.) There’s no expiry. If you punch somebody, the bruises heal but the memory is with them forever. They may become more afraid, they may learn to fight. Every action has a permanent affect that may be noticeable or absorbed. So it doesn’t encourage love forever, but anything that is encouraged has an effect on a person that becomes a part of who they are. It encourages a change and then what you do with that change is up to you. I have seen people use love magick of all kinds, fail to make a move, and then everything fizzles out – doesn’t take away the reality of what the magick achieved at the time.

  6. Hi Adam,,
    I have purchased six paper copies and three ebooks, Most Enlightening Books thks,!

    Adam have you personally or any GOM member tried to bind or contact a JINN to do ones bidding or have GOM ever considered writing a book on the JINN?

    I would imagine any person(s) who would like to dive more deeply into dark Magick or deeper into the more demonic work certainly would appreciate your input, and any experience you and other members of GOM have about the JINN..

    1. Thanks so much, and thanks for your interest in that subject. There are some subjects that, for complex reasons, we may or may not cover in book form, and that’s one of them. Which means I’m not meant to say anything other than, well, you can probably guess that we have some experience between us. But whether or not there will be a book – we will have to wait, and it would be some years away, I’m afraid. I hope the books you have turn out well for you. 🙂

  7. Hi G.O.M
    I am now working with several of the books from your collection: Magical Servitors, 72 Sigils of Power, Sigils of Power and Transformation. I Intend to create a Servitor this week but is this alright if I am doing the magic from 72 Sigils of Power and Sigils of Power and …?
    Is it safe to make more than one Servitor working for different parts of your life all in operation at the same time ? Also if you have more than one servitor working at the same time if one plays up and becomes problematic how will you know which one it is?

    I also need to ask a question for a friend of mine whom like myself has been the victim of old ancestor curses as well as modern jealousy curses. She is a lady in her fifties whom when she was a small child her clothing was buried in a graveyard by a nasty relative. She had a lot of horrible curses put on her, ruining her career and work life but over the last five years at least a spirit has possessed her body.
    This thing has taken most of her strength making it impossible for her to have any real quality of life. She feels it moving around inside of her all the time and it interrupts her sleep so she has sleepless nights, and when she does sleep she has freighting nightmares.
    She has been repeatedly ripped off by so called spiritualist claiming to break witchcraft and other curses. The say they can remove it but instead waste her time and fleece everything she has, we are talking thousands.
    My question is with all the knowledge that you all possess and all your spiritual abilities and insights is there anything you can advise to free this lady of this terrible curse? She had been told by some that it is a dangerous job to free her of this spirit both for them and for her but is it possible to help her without harm to anyone. Also she is now struggling financially so what can she do that can make a difference without costing the earth? Are you familiar with African and Caribbean obeah…? These are some of the worst dark magic practises in the world, truly horrific!

    Thanks

    1. Hi Viveen. Yes, I know what you mean and think what we have can work, but need to answer this at length. Taking a couple of days out of town, so will reply when I get back. Cheers, AB. Regarding servitors, they don’t play up when used with this method IMHO – if it’s used to the letter. And yes, some people make multi-use servitors, but they are often a bit weak – unless it’s like, ‘bring a bit of extra luck to each endeavour’. That can work. But one that you use for money, for protection, for better sleep – that can get all watered down.

      More soon! AB.

    2. Yes, people will fleece you in situations like this. Horrible. I am familiar with the styles/of magick you talk about. I do not believe that it is dangerous to fight a curse or banish a spirit – I believe this is superstition or a power-play by those with a vested interest. And yes, I have seen the magick in Magickal Protection work very well. But it would be ideal if she were to do the magick for herself. Not vital, but the best way to go about it. The first step is to get past the belief that it’s unbeatable. It simply isn’t, and although the style of magick in Damon’s book is very far from African magick, I have seen it work against such curses over and over again. There’s quite a lot in that book that could be used. However, I have also met people who are suffering in similar situations and the answer was more psychological than magickal – I genuinely do not mean to be insulting, and never want to say, ‘Hey, your friend is crazy, it’s not a curse’, because it would be rude, and we are here, after all, because we believe in magick, and magick far more dramatic than many would believe – and because I’ve seen people who thought they were crazy, but all they needed was a curse removed. So I am on your side here! But in situations like this, when I’m personally involved I do encourage people to get other kinds of help, to make sure there’s nothing psychological that’s underlying or maintaining the problem. Even simple CBT (which doesn’t wok for everything) can help people to get around curses that feel real even though their power faded years before. Such work is not free, and the self-help books aren’t great, but it may be worth thinking about. But if you’re 100% certain it’s a curse, then fight it as a curse. If you know who did it, you can use Magickal Attack to weaken them, and put up ongoing protection. Also, not everybody agrees with me on this, but any spirit that appears to inhabit a person is never truly inhabiting it, but is held there by other forces, such as curse. Break that curse, and there doesn’t need to be a grand exorcism. The spirit just loses the ability to exist in that way.

      1. Hi Adam
        Thank you for your response! To answer a few queries you mentioned, I, too have wondered about her mental state and have confronted her on the issue. However, she is sure that what is happening is spiritual. she informed that when she does any kind of banishing prayers (given to her by spiritualist church(s) ) the spirit becomes restless and reacts but does not leave. So I have to take her word for it. She is also quiet weak and depressed I do not know if she could do anything for herself, unless it is something as simple as the books mentioned. I really want to help her but I do not want to do a ritual on her behalf as I fear this is risky. Therefore, I will purchase a couple of the ‘Magical Protection’ book you mentioned and send one on to to her with any advice you give me.

        I would also like to know for both this lady and my behalf, do you know how to remove your essence from items such as photographs and clothing. Mostly, because this lady’s curse may be coming from a woman who got a hold of her underwear when they were girls. Unfortunately, she did not listen to her parents when they warned her about allowing friends into the bedroom and as a result a jealousy spell was done against her. The woman who did this is a problem till today but I do not know if she is the one responsible for the spirit possession!

        I too am in a situation where a jealousy spell was placed against me and I have fought for years to rid myself of it. Unfortunately, every time I get rid of it and think I am back to normal the problem comes back. I just want to break the spell permanently and move on. What can I do? The Magical Protection book that you mentioned can it deal with this nuisance or is there another one? At the moment I am working with’ 72 Sigils…’ by Zanna Blaise and your ‘Sigils of Power and …’ is there anything in those to I can do to combat this problem.

        I am also wondering is it normal to get sleepy and overwhelmed when working with the two books mentioned? I am energy sensitive and I can feel the power of the books before I even open them the problem is I have literally had to stop and take a nap in between. Am I being overwhelmed because I tend to have the books out together or should I just ground beforehand? My daughter reminded me I should be wearing my black and brown crystals to keep me grounded. I also drank water before starting the work the other day and that kept me awake, do you have any suggestions because drinking water makes me want to go to the bathroom after a short while.

        By the way I have decided to put my fears aside and start using the Words of Power by Damon Brand. My theory is because I am already dealing with negative entities sent against me, I might as well take back the power and put some of my own choice at work on my behalf.

        Finally, can a negative thought popping into your head during a ritual cause a negative outcome? When I get negative thoughts I tend to fight them with mind chatter stating what my intent is, will everything be alright?

        Thank your for your advise, sorry about the length of my questions.

      2. Hi Adam and G.O.M
        Thank you for your response, by the way I have already replied to your response but it is not showing so just incase, I will try and give another one. OR did you remove it, if you have I am sorry if I caused some kind of offence. Please let me know if you have.

        Anyway I must continue just incase! My friend informed me that her problem is not mental in any way when I have asked her in the past.She says that when she does power banishing prayers (given to her by a spiritualist church) the spirit reacts, by shuffling around and becoming restless but it does not leave. I am not sure what kind of possession this is but I know that she was cursed by a jealous friend when they were girls. Despite being warned by her parents not to let anyone into her bedroom she allowed this girl access and as a result this girl took some of her underwear. She later discovered the things were missing. Until this day as women the spells continue. This woman gives her threatening looks whenever she sees my friend as though she is surprise that she is still alive. I do not know if she is behind this particular problem or if it curses from the old country, Jamaica. I do know that she is weak and depressed and probably can not perform a ritual for herself, partly because she too ill and because she does not believe anything can be done anymore. Please do not ask me to perform one for her I simply cannot take the risk. I will however, purchase whatever book you suggest i.e Magical Protection and give any advice you may give. Maybe if there was a simple removal ritual sigil or something that does not require a huge effort she could perform it.

        I would like to know if there is anything to remove my essence from photographs and clothing etc etc…I too am fighting a old jealously spell place on me some years ago. I have done many spells to break it and it does go away for a while, but then it comes back and I am absolutely fed up with it. I want it gone once and for all. I have your book Sigils of Power and… and Zanna Blaise 72 Sigils of power. I have been using them for various things but, can any particular sigil do this or are these Sigils created for easy use and basic needs? I also need to know if it is normal to feel incredibly sleepy with intense pressure on my neck when working with these books. I found my self taking a nap in between rituals.I am energy sensitive and feel the power of these books even before I open them to start use. Is this because I tend to work with them one after the other so I keep them together. I had a glass of water between books the other day and that helped but this causes me to want the bathroom often. My daughter advised me to wear my black and brown crystals to ground me as this feeling can be cause by not grounding. What do you think and advise?

        I also have the urge to start working with my first book from G.O.M ‘Words of Power’ by Damon Brand. I was afraid of this book before and hid it away but these past few days I have taken it out and began reading it. Is this the magic of the other two books working? or is it all me?

        Like before I do apologise for my long blogs but there is a lot to say and ask.

        I am grateful, and do look forward to your response.

        1. Hi. Nothing was removed – the moment box should say “Comments and replies may take some time to appear.”, and so you posted twice.

          Given what you say, it might be quite difficult, because what I’d personally do is go on the attack at the same time as protecting. But if she doesn’t have the energy then whatever protection she can do will help. The normal advice is to do the 33-day protection ritual, and then add in The Sword Banishing and rituals to remove curses etc. But if that’s all too much just go for The Sword Banishing. It is very easy, and can be done in minutes. It is one of the most powerful rituals, despite its ease, and it’s important to know this before going into it. There is no need to ‘aim’ it at the spirit, or any problem, but if she performs it twice a day, there should be changes.

          For your situation, I’d recommend the same advice. It shields you from magick old and new. If you can do more protection, so much the better. With the books you have, there are many in the Protection Magick section of Sigils of Power than can help – trust your intuition. Zanna’s book is good for supporting you through all this, but again, be guided by what you sense will help you. It’l be better than my guesswork. The magick in both books is simple, but not basic – indeed the magick in Sigils of Power can seem slight, but it amongst the most powerful stuff we’ve put out there.

          Tiredness does get to some people. You can read about it here; https://galleryofmagick.com/2015/07/21/a-touch-of-the-supernatural/

          The other books could have opened you up, yeah, but do wait until you feel safe. Words of Power is as safe as magick gets. Read the FAQ for more details. It just can’t be harmful in my opinion, but I think if you feel edgy about magick, it’s better to wait.

          1. Hi Adam

            Thank you so much for you honest responses.

            Furthermore, to the discussion concerning the Magickal Protection book by the G o M. I have just started studying the rituals and I have a few questions before beginning. If negative thought-forms and negative mind voices pop into your head whilst requesting help from the angels, will the angels act out the negative thoughts and voices? I am quiet good at visualisation but I sometimes struggle with negative images and voice popping into the process, could it be a spirit of hindrance ?

            Will the angels know what my true desires are and ignore the negatives?

            I know the G o M put safety measures in place but will these measures prevent angels (who are very powerful beings) acting out bad (negative thoughts/voices) influences?

            Also why do you have to call the four angels everyday once the activation is done?

            What will happen if you do not call them?

            I also read that the angel YOHACH, is linked to Psalms 91 in the line 11 ‘ For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.’ This is ironic as I read this Psalm often to prevent spiritual attacks and I have always notices this particular line! Do you think reading this Psalm already generated the power YOHACH and the others?

            Any answers you give I am passing on to the lady I informed you about in my previous comments. I need her to feel safe to do the rituals as I am sharing this advice with her.

            Look forward to your response.

            1. So long as you know what you intended, the angels will know. Stray thoughts are never strong or consistent enough to overrule your main thought and feeling. Go into it with the confidence that it will be ok, rather than the fear that there may be a negative outcome and your mind might be less prone to stray. But it’s all ok – you know what you mean and want, and the angels work with that. They are intelligent and will not latch onto a stray thought or image.

              The Sword Banishing is a banishing you do daily. Some banishing and workings are long term – this one relies on repeated use, daily or twice daily. Some use it less often, but best results are from once or twice a day.

              If you don’t call them, nothing will happen – but that’s all. It just means the protection is no longer in place. You can restart it at any time without the activation by doing the ritual. Many people manage to complete this ritual in ten or fifteen seconds, so it’s not a huge commitment, even if done daily.

              Psalms do have innate power which may be linked to these angels, but it’s beyond the scope of what we can talk about here to go into the theory. It is certainly true, however, that angels work in many ways – unseens, as a side-effect of another process (such as reading a Psalm), and when called directly.

              Cheers. AB.

  8. Adam, thanks so much for you and your team. I think your magickal servitors have worked to increase your book sales because we have purchased all but 3 or so of your books so far.. lol. Well I wanted to ask a few questions that I hope you can assist with.
    Hopefully these are not redundant…

    A) Is Corwin Hargrove one of the members of the gallery of magick?

    B) I am looking to work with the goetia, do you have any formats, invocations etc that
    can be used to work with those spirits in any of your books. Most of what I have read seems to be very ritualistic and kind of outdated in regards to connecting with those spirits and I feel intuitively that there must be an easier way, ANY insight would be welcomed.

    C) Also the exercise that you have given in ” Wealth Magick” that allows you to absorb a sigil within you… Can it be used to absorb any sigil? Like sigils form Chaos Magick, any of the angelic sigils or something that you personally create, etc?

    1. Hi David. Ha, thanks for buying the books – I promise there’s no magick there compelling you to buy. Our real concern is that the books go to those who are drawn to magick! But I think you were joking. 😉

      A) No. All Gallery authors are listed on the About page along with their books. I think the author you mentioned has acknowledged our influence, and you can see it in the style and design and the overall simplification. However, the extensive level of ‘planetary timing’ in that book sets it apart from The Gallery. Most of our magick can be done any time – although sometimes we say, ‘Best on Saturday night,’ or something like that, but it’s not timed to the hour.

      B) Magickal Attack contains a bit of this, but the demonic sigils in that book including a smudging of the divine words which means they are tuned to attack only – they’re not general purpose. And there’s only a few of them. For a more general approach to demonic work, keep your eyes open around June or July. (Or subscribe to this site or the Facebook page, to get updates.)

      C) Yes, The Image Fire tech can be used as a way to charge or absorb other sigils. Works very well with personally created sigils, and things like that. There’s a bit of debate about using it on other sigils, because it is a way of really taking the sigil within you, so it is best when you’re working with something fairly long term, rather than a quick afternoon ritual that you do once for a fast result.

  9. Hi Adam,

    Recently I read a story about a person who worked with one of the 72 angels to request for money. What ended up happening was that his car got rear ended by a police officer, and received $500 as a compensation.

    Another person made a similar monetary request to a shem angel, and as a result he got into a life changing accident, and started receiving monthly disability cheques from the government.

    Why would the angels grant people’s wishes in such disheartening manners? Do you have any advice on preventing that from happening? What’s the best way to word out the request to the angels so that the results come in a safe, peaceful, non hurtful manner?

    1. As we keep saying, if you read around (especially online) you’ll find a veritable treasure chest of horror stories about angels. But from what I have seen, this isn’t remotely true, or even possible. I have evoked these angels directly, using methods not published yet, and what I have been shown made it so clear to me that this is not how these things work. If angels did that sort of things, I would walk away from the occult right now.

      On a more mundane level I look at this way: I have known many people work with these angels (more people than you can imagine), and using pure statistics some of those people are going to get rich, some are going to die suddenly and some will go crazy. That happens whenever you ‘know’ a few hundred people – it’s basic mathematics. But when you’re using magick, you can say magick caused everything. The truth is, people get rich and happy and find love *without* magick, all the time. People get cancer and have accidents all the time, and it’s nothing to do with magick. When people seek money and have an accident, it’s easy to blame the magick. In my opinion, based on a life of magick, this is completely false.

      How do you tell the difference between chance and a real result? One, by knowing angels wouldn’t do something dumb. Secondly, by experience. When you work with these angels for a long time you get a sense of the subtle and understanding ways they work. Although some say they don’t understand humans and work with apparent stupidity, I see this as nothing more than propaganda. The angels don’t injure you or cause accidents to get you what you want. I see that as nothing more than coincidence, or maybe disinformation. And this is not just based on wishful thinking where I want to see all good results as true magick, and all bad results as nothing to do with it – it’s based on several decades of experience and observation, and most importantly, directly experiencing the presence of these angels and communicating with them.

      Magick takes the path of least resistance, but it’s absolute nonsense to suggest that injuring people is the path of least resistance, when seen from an angelic point of view, or even a common sense point of view.

      You are free to disagree, and I’m not even sure there’s much point in me stating all this, because the myth of ‘payment’ is so prevalent we’ll never stop it. Damon already covered this in the FAQ up there, a bit:

      “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 https://galleryofmagick.com/2015/06/02/the-balance-of-magick/.”

      I think his answer applies here. There are much easier ways to get money than through accidents and a life of disability.

  10. Hi Adam,

    Questions:

    1. In one of her books, Doreen Virtue mentions that she works only with the archangels and stays away from the 72 King Solomon angels (which she believes are fallen angels). However, I believe they’re completely different from the 72 angels in Damon’s and Zanna’s books? From your experience, how do the 72 Solomon angels differ from the 72 Shemhamphorasch angels in the GOM books?

    2. I’m married to someone who unfortunately I don’t think is a good fit for me. I think that for our highest and best good, it’s best that we go our separate ways (legally). I’m good friends with someone who’s a much better fit. As I’m still married, I’m only friends with this other lady…..however, I know in my deepest heart that she sort of has feelings for me (which she blocks because she knows I’m married), and I know that if I were single, her feelings could develop into something greater (and I sincerely hope to be able to marry her and have a family with her, eventually.) Do you think the angel Eshaliah (Asaliah) would be able to help reveal/enhance the other lady’s true feelings for me? Any other angels you can recommend? Any sigils?

    3. Despite our great differences, I want my present wife to be taken care of….i.e.: after the separation I want to make sure she’s happy, healthy, all around well, prosper, and be happy with someone who’s a better fit for her. And I know that the universe/angels “paint in broad stroke” and can work a bit randomly, and I would NEVER want our separation to happen because of something terrible (i.e.: her getting kidnapped by villains and never to be seen again…etc. I just want a civil, humane, normal separation). How should I word this request? And to which angel(s) / sigils? What feelings should I have when making this request?

    1. Hello!

      We don’t comment on the work of other authors for loads of reasons, but in cases like this because if we haven’t read it we don’t know exactly what they mean or why they said it and before you know it we’ve said something about them and their work that doesn’t apply. It gets too complicated…. and we try to focus on our practical magick or we’ll never get anything else done.

      But the angels in The 72 Angels of magick are known as something like The Angels of The Shemhamphoras (and other spellings) – but Wiki and other online sources are notoriously terrible, so watch out for those. It’s impossible for me to recommend a good book – there are so many bad ones, and even the good ones aren’t always great and will contain many spellings that differ from ours because it all depends on the sources and how they are used etc. and that makes users fret about it all. But there are many sources of theory out there. Look for the reputable academic authors. It’s not going to be practical stuff, but if you want the theory, that’s where you get it. Each angel does correspond to a demon – that is, each angel can be used to constrain a particular goetic demon. Rudd’s work on this was an interesting starting point for a lot of people.

      2.) Without any magick, I can bet I know what would get her to reveal her feelings – seeing your separation underway. But I don’t know you or her, so that’s me guessing. If you want to use magick, yes, good choice of angel!. Or Vehuel if you just want to know, rather than influence. But angel choice should always be yours, so you know what you’re getting into and why, and what sort of result you actually want.

      3) In all my long years I have never seen angels cause disasters to achieve something that can achieved with nothing more than a thought or feeling. So it’s safe, in that sense. It’s not safe in the sense that even the very best and kindest separations are usually really bloody awful, one way or another. That’s just the reality of it, most of the time. Magick can help get you through that (72 Sigils and Angels of Alchemy are best for personal strength in these situations). But I’m not sure what you’re asking an angel to do? If you want an angel to make her the one that decides on a separation, instead of you, that’s a tall order. It could be done (can be done, I’ve seen it), but it’s a very long way around. If you want the separation, you can just ask for one – but if you want magick to make it as calm and understanding as possible, yes, it can help. I always say to people before a separation, do all you can to make yourself strong, calm, compassionate, resolute, whatever it takes – and maybe work to make the other person receptive to the idea. To know what you need might mean many hours of pondering with those books mentioned above, to find out what would get you through it all.

  11. Does the GoM have a stronger curse than the Master Curse, that is available to the public or considered for release in the near future…. or a way to strengthen that curse further? Thank you so much!

    Like

    1. Around the middle of 2017 there will be something that gives you more fine tuning and control but it’s not necessarily stronger. That curse often takes effect and you don’t see it because people hide their pain, very , very well. But if it’s not working as you want then combine it with other attacks – weaken first, or cause disruption first. Or at the same time. Sustained attack should get through.

  12. Hi… Would you have any suggested seduction ritual/s not in Magickal Seduction that take less days than the angel request rituals? I’m dedicated but already doing so much magick. And I’d like to attract a man that is a patron at my work, but I don’t know his name to use in the ritual, though I can describe him to a helping spirit…. My desire is specific, that I’d like him to kiss my -skillfully!- on New Year’s Eve. Any suggestions?

  14. Hi Damon. How would you target Magic, when it comes to make someone ( you have some contact With) fall in love With you. Just curious about how you would break this Down?:)

    Thank you for writing theese books, I love them, and I`m very Grateful:)

    Like

    1. Thank you. To target, in any situation, you need to look at the problem, the cause of the problem. So, if there is attraction, it may be that all you need to do is use a ritual to excite love (such as the one in Magickal Seduction, or perhaps The Angels of Love.) But it could be that you need to work on aspects of yourself. Do you need more confidence, more energy or something else that’s missing from this potential match? If so, books such as The 72 sigils can help. Or do you need a completely different change? If you need to get out of a relationship, and be seen in a new life, and live in a new town – more extensive targeting is required. But as I try to emphasise, sometimes simple is best, and a single ritual can do the job most of the time. If it’s more complex, look at the issues affecting the situation and tackle them one by one.

    1. I’m afraid this falls under theoretical, which we can’t really go into in detail. Those who work with chaos magick might say there is no difference, and that if it works, it’s a good magickal technology. Others might say that finding magick that works guides you to a greater understanding of all reality.

    1. Many people get results without believing in the reality of angels. I do, personally, due to very real experiences, but I know that many people work with this idea that angels are some from of quantum archetype – there’s lots of theory. So long as you believe that the magick itself has the potential to work, a direct belief is not required. You still need to act as though you are talking to the angel, whatever it may be – and so long as this is not done with a scoffing attitude, it can work. This post elaborates a little: https://galleryofmagick.com/2016/03/25/do-you-believe-in-magick/

    1. Funny you should ask that, as we’re currently having a quite involved discussion about this. We only want to write about subjects when we believe we can contribute truly new material. So when it comes to astral projection what we bring to the table it a ritual magick approach. All the techniques you can use for astral projection already exist, and a re widely known, but magick can enhance them. The same is true for lucid dreams, and other similar subjects. So right now we’re trying to decide whether we should write these books at all. It may be that it’s simpler for everybody if we simply offer the ritual instructions online, free, rather than creating books that are half-filled with material that is already widely known. But there will be something, sooner or later.

      1. Whatever and whenever you guys write, It’s almost as if words are made out of Gold itself. Honestly speaking, yes there’s tons of information regarding the subject as it is the same with the Goetia and its spirits. However none of them were done or even grazed by GOM. We’re all extremely excited for the HGA book and it’d be an amazing combination with the Astral Projection book. It’s true HGA will open a lot of doors to many realms of existence for us but Astral Projection will help us to walk through it.

        Back to Astral projection, learning it from GOM as with all your books has always made us think,act and do differently that none of us has ever thought about it from a magickal point of view. I feel exact same way about the Astral Projection being done by the GOM and you. It is the mother lode of all magick, 2nd after that it’s Mental Travel. All 3 planes exist within us. Mental(Idea), Astral(Emotion) and lastly Physical(reality which is us). From that order, I think it’s pretty obvious what we lack or it is out of wack most in this world. I have a few theories of Why but that’s for another time over starbucks or something. haha.

        Anyway, Conclusion is the Astral Projection by GOM and you would highly be useful in ways to our lives, magickal or not because no one in the world would’ve thought of it. Cobbs had the right idea but it needed a lot of improvement, that’s where GOM leads the front line on this subject.

        P.S thanks to you guys, I’m practically living proof of all the hard work that GOM and you have done. Granted,Bardon made me who I am today for last 8 years but GOM and you have given me true meaning of what life is really all about, what it takes to be happy and that we all always have the choices to make for the future.

    1. Thanks for buying the book.

      Sadly, you can’t know, and even if I translated every word and explained all the theory you might still think that it was going to be evil in some way. Somebody recently reviewed the Magickal Protection book and claimed that it is black magick that works with demons, which is utterly ludicrous. Magick can work for people with religious beliefs that seem contrary to magick, but it can take some time to get over the initial discomfort.

      So no amount of reassurance could really help. What I can say is that you can’t really do a deal with the devil by accident. In fact, magick is all about your will and your intent and your deep emotions, so it can’t conjure up evil by accident.

      It might help to read this: https://galleryofmagick.com/2015/02/19/what-magick-are-you-afraid-of/

      Also, if you read all the posts on the success stories page you should get the impression that this is very safe magick: https://galleryofmagick.com/magickal-success-stories/

      Also, magick brings you what you want, and that always brings you face to face with your moral position in the world. So I believe that magick is always spiritual on some level. https://galleryofmagick.com/2016/02/07/the-spiritual-material-success/

    1. Thanks for buying the books, but it is very difficult to know how to answer without knowing which books you’re using. If it’s Words of Power, then you are using divine names and angelic names to connect to aspects of angels and archangels, for example. If you’re using The 72 Sigils of Magick, then you’re working directly with aspects of the divine. The genius spirits are also used in some book, and they are described above. What these spirits actually are, objectively speaking, is open to interpretation and I discuss that a little, above.

    1. I presume you mean $0.99 and $1.99?

      We’ve had quite a lot of people telling us that we are virtually giving the books away, and that we should price them higher, so that people know there is real value in what we are offering. I have considered putting the price up, because some people are definitely skim-reading the books and treating them as though they are a rather trivial experiment. As such, we definitely won’t be putting the price down.

      It’s far better to buy one book when you can afford, and study it throughly, and get to grips with its magick. That’s better than buying everything at once.

      Depending on where you are in the world the ebooks costs about the same as a good glass of wine, or two coffees, or a few hours of parking. If you only have $5.99 spare every six months, then buy one book every six months and you will get good results.

      Thanks for your interest in the books.

    Like

    1. If there’s no interview, because it’s online, you may want to use the first three rituals and the last, during each period that you’re applying. So at the beginning of a week where you’re working on this, use rituals 1, 2 and 3. At the end of that week, add in the final ritual. Also, be open to changing something about your approach. If you’re getting no results it may be that you’re applying for the wrong work, in the wrong place or in the wrong way. Maybe not, but maybe, and if so, one way this magick can help is by guiding you to look in a better place or to change the way you apply. If you get intuition about that, follow it.

We cannot reply to private messages due to time pressure. When private messages were open, it was normal for more than forty questions a day to arrive, and replying to them took up many hours. As such, a public page such as this is the best way to address questions. If you send a NOT FOR PUBLIC message, please note that you will not get a reply. I stress this point because people keep sending NOT FOR PUBLIC messages that have questions in them. If you need a response, please just post anonymously.”
