My Magical Game Plan: 1 Step Down

Thank you Yelahiah! Sent in our application on Friday of last week, got our approval call on Monday!  Literally could not have asked for better results from this working.  I’ll be engaging a test follow up of Make Your Money Go Further from Words of Power to help the money situation transition well.

So, Update:

  1. Finding a Place to Live
    Yelahiah from Greater Magickal Angels offers to fulfill material desires such as finding a new home at the best possible price.  I’m going to combine that with Make Your Money Go Further from Words of Power in order to make the transition as smooth as possible
  2. (New) Help the Girlfriend Find Work
    I realized that the biggest boon to our cashflow is getting the girlfriend back to work ASAP, so I’m going to sub in a TBD Magickal Angel to kick her job search into gear.
  3. Improving Work
    My current job pays out incentive bonuses for good performance, so my second major action is going to be to maximise these payouts (giving the dual effect of making me look like a great employee and enhancing goal #1).  My plan is to use Cahetel (Greater Magickal Angels) and his gift of a Strong Voice in combination with Lecabel (Magickal Angels) and the gift of “Inspirational Ideas for your Profession” to get ahead.
  4. Improving Love
    Why not, right?  Yeliel (Magickal Angels) creates Passionate Sex
  5. Certification Exam
    Yezalel worked wonders for me last time, so I will use that spirit again as I prepare for further professional certification.

So for those keeping score at home I’ve gotten great results from Damon Brand’s books both times that I’ve called on them.  While I don’t often plug an author or method, this stuff works.  Check out his Amazon Page

Update: Magical Game Plan

I’m still in the process of step 1 from the previous post, but we went out house hunting yesterday and found a place we both really liked, that was going to be available starting Saturday.  It was the first place we stopped at, but after seeing six or seven other places, we kept coming back to the first place.  I will commence the ritual as instructed to smooth out the rest of the process, but I’m confident that I’m seeing a response from Yelahiah.

More news as it happens,

My Magical Game Plan

While I’ve been quiet, I haven’t been idle.  Since my last post I’ve competed nationally in my professional field, started a job in my field, moved my girlfriend into my parents house, and begun making plans for the next major phase of my life.  Obviously, Magic is going to serve to smooth out the bumps and help me get where I want to be.  I’ve decided on the following major Magical happenings over the next month-ish (given the 11 day working span of Magickal Angel spells).

  1. Finding a Place to Live
    Yelahiah from Greater Magickal Angels offers to fulfill material desires such as finding a new home at the best possible price.  I’m going to combine that with Make Your Money Go Further from Words of Power in order to make the transition as smooth as possible
  2. Improving Work

  3. Improving Love
    Why not, right?  Yeliel (Magickal Angels) creates Passionate Sex
  4. Certification Exam
    Yezalel worked wonders for me last time, so I will use that spirit again as I prepare for further professional certification.

Going to be a busy October,

An Update to my previous post

I had held off on posting this update until I saw all the results of my previous working (see previous post re: my workings with the angel Yezalel)

I passed my exam with a score of 960/1000, and the friend I was assisting passed his with a 920/1000.

From this I can say with some certainty that the ritual was a resounding success.

My next experiment with Brand’s works will be to help get a new business venture I’m working on off the ground quickly and successfully.  I’m not sure if I’ll use Magickal Angels again right now (awesome results though it produces) as he has a number of works I’m interested in test driving.

I’ll look over my choices tonight and formulate a new strategy

Elated,
Incantatar

Brand’s Angel Ritual Working 3

I began the ritual on Thursday night as prescribed.  I performed it yesterday before work as well.  Today I’ve just completed the ritual, and sincei had more time today I really got into it.

i prefaced the working with the 12 & 13 meditative state from The Inner Temple of Witchcraft which helped get my mind in the right state for ritual.  I focused on acting out the ritual with forceful motions, really working from a position of power.  I tried to feel the lightning strike each time I spoke an angelic name (Brand suggests that when singing the angelic name to envision a lightning bolt striking down).  I chanted the Invocation Chant slowly at first and then built up speed until I couldn’t keep the words straight.  At the climax of the chant, I placed a hand on the talisman and my other hand on the sigil.  I feel like it closed a circuit, creating a conduit of energy with which to power the summoning.  At that point, I gave my command as usual and closed the ritual space.  As I concluded, I envisioned a sort of reverse lightning bolt.  Energy being drawn from all around me and zooming back up into the sky.

Afterwards I feel a bit light headed and very hungry (I don’t remember being hungry before I began).  After a moment of exhaustion, I actually felt more energized than I did before beginning.

Still a ways to go on this ritual,

Back Again, well, you know how this goes

After yet another loooooooooong break from posting I’ve come back for what will probably be not very long like always.  But hey, at least I’m honest about it.

The magical fad of the moment for me is the works of Damon Brand.  His books are short and to the point, with just enough fluff to keep you moving and some hard hitting technique.  For those of you that are followers of my blog (such as it is) know that I’m a great admirer of The Miracle of New Avatar Power by Geoff Gray-Cobb.  Damon Brand has a similar magical style to the master himself (and he acknowledges that Cobb’s work on NAP was a big inspiration for him).  In fact, in the beginning of his book Magickal Angels, Brand takes a stab at understanding the angel Arzel, and those words at the beginning of the NAP Ritual “Ankar YHVH”

Anyway, the book falls somewhere between NAP and Mystic Grimoire for complexity, having more ritual flair than NAP, but not requiring the fasting and magical oil and such that MG wants.  It utilizes two major talismans (called Shem Talismans) as well as a seal for each individual angel the book teaches you to call up.  There’s a pile of Latin chants and such that really all feels very…magic-y (a distinct requirement of any magic I perform is that it must absolutely drip with “burn the witch” feeling, and I find that Latin chants are one of those things that just get my magical motor running so to speak.)

To test it, I’m performing an evocation of Yezalel, who has the power to help the magician pass exams or tests.  I’m currently up against a nasty exam in a week or two, so I’m going to use Yezalel to pass the exam.

The evocations in Magickal Angels (man do I hate that K in magick anymore) are supposed to be begun on a Thursday and Ended on a Sunday, going for 11 days.  That sounds like a lot, but the whole ritual is like 10 minutes tops.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, Brand reads like Cobb with a little more meat on its bones.  He discusses Lust of Result, as well as the importance of “selling the part” of magician in order to receive results.  Specifically he says that it doesn’t matter if you believe in magic, so long as when you’re evoking you behave as an actor and sell your role.  It’s an interesting perspective to be sure.

Brand has 7 small books in eBook (through Amazon’s Kindle) that cover topics such as angelic evocation, words of power, money magic, wealth magic, sex magic and more for like $1.99 each, or you can read his work through the Kindle Unlimited plan.

I’ll at least keep the blog updated for this ritual, maybe longer.  Time will tell.

Briefly, my post-ritual notes for tonight’s evocation session:

Working: Evocation of Yezalel (Exam Help)

Synopsis: Using the material from Damon Brand’s Magickal Angels, I performed an evocation of the angel Yezalel and gave it instructions to aid me in passing my exam.  I asked also for the angel to share some of the magical outcome with a friend who is studying for the same exam*

What Happened?: The ritual was quick and quiet, because people are in the house with me, but I tried to focus deeply on each step.  When I got to the point of using the chant to attract the angel, I chanted for a minute or so before continuing. Upon calling the angel’s name three times, I sensed (or imagined, as the case may be) a golden presence across the altar from me.  I gave it a moment to speak, but it did not (nor did I expect it to) so I gave my instructions and bid it leave to depart upon sealing my command.

Directly post ritual I was physically drained, and I sat still for several minutes to recover my strength.

Anyway, that’s what’s new.

Back in the game (at least for now),
Incantatar

*Brand suggests that giving back is a useful way of making ourselves more able to receive (kind of trite new age nonsense), but he suggests that instead of giving time or money to instead offer a portion of your magical result to someone who needs it.  I like the idea of it, and in this case I’ve asked Yezalel to apply the results of the magic upon my friend as well as myself.
