Hey all! It looks like we are well underway. Excellent! A couple of quick announcements:
So we’ve had a couple of people drop from the group (Darkness and Sukujin), and I would just like to thank them for knowing their time wasn’t available enough to proceed, and also for putting in the time/effort that they did up to this point. Maybe next time.
As we had some spots open up, blackpheonix has joined the group and will be getting up to speed on the workings. As the project is now underway, I can’t imagine anyone being able to catch up past today. So unless we take on a charity project on someone’s behalf, this closes the group.
I will have the next group of workings up in the next few days, so you can plan ahead for later workings.
Thanks again for your efforts! I look forward to hearing some success stories, and have enjoyed the reports of various workings.
UPDATE 10/24/2012: I’m compiling all the data on a spreadsheet right now, and will get the initial schedule up very soon. I will also post a secondary thread where the organization/planning info will be posted, just as the original FWB had.
Please use this thread for discussion and results, so the other one can stay uncluttered and readable. And yes, please discuss your practices and results in this thread - it adds great value to everyone reading and participating both.
The calendar thread is up - http://becomealivinggod.com/forum/money-spells/fwb-ii-calendar-thread-(look-here-for-assignments)/
UPDATE - 10/20/2012: We have hit a critical mass, so unless I hear a large outcry, we will go forward with this starting on November 1st,
(and if anyone wants to use Halloween energy for their operations, you should be able to get a jump start on the first few workings).
There are still a few slots left, so hit me up soonish if you’d like to join.
Also, a few of you have yet to send me a private message with your request for the group’s efforts. Try to do this soon, so you and I will have enough time to shape the request, such that: 1) it is a sufficiently focused/clarified goal that the group can work on it, and 2) you are actually asking for what you desire.
Remember: clarity of focus is very important to ritual working, whether for yourself or others; an operation is an extension of your will. If your will is floundering and unclear, your results will be unsatisfactory or obscure. But if your will is focused and direct, your results will follow suit.
Original starting post:
So the original Friends with Benefits money-making group/thread was pretty popular before, so I’m gauging interest here for a possible November or December cooperative working month.
[The following is shamelessly paraphrased and slightly reworked from Maxx’s original thread. Thanks Maxx!]
Everyone who signs up will have an assigned number posted and know what days they will receive the focus and benefit of the ritual effort of all the others - on those days the target does nothing except just receive. Everyone else will work for the benefit of that member to increase finances (or health, love, etc.); whatever is requested. Each member will list what they would like the others to work on toward their behalf. This is a diverse group, so keep that in mind when making your request to get maximum benefit - while a request of improved finances is relatively benign and most would be happy to help with, a request of death to your enemies might have less takers (and it denies you the satisfaction of doing that job yourself).
Those working will use the spirit connection as they see fit - this is a group of individuals working for mutual benefit, rather than a group ritual per se. So know that each of you may have demons, angels, candle magic, and other media working in your direction. If this makes you uncomfortable, either air your concerns here, or build another more focused group yourself.
It will then be posted the number/days, name, and the objective desired and post here for all to see. This thread will also be used as a discussion forum for the results received - so the thread should also serve as an interesting showing of the efficacy of multiple intents focused on a singular goal.
There were interesting results last time, with the members of a group such as this one all working to one purpose.
If you want in on this, private message me your name and your desired object/outcome. Once I have the list, I will perform a triage and then randomization of the list to determine our schedule and directives. I’m aiming for about 14-16 people on this list, to do a month worth of workings and give everyone two days or so for each working. If we can get the list together in time, I’m aiming for November.
Maxx brought up an important point that November may well be devoted to EA’s new divination program for most of you. If that is the case, no problem. If we don’t get enough interested parties, we can push the project forward a month - I’ll try to keep everyone posted in a timely manner.
Remember, while this could be a huge boon to you in terms of what you receive, the real benefit will come in the gains of performing so many workings in a directed and structured way. You will gain the most benefit from this by doing the workings - receiving the boon on your scheduled day(s) is merely the added bonus.
If you don’t intend (or don’t think you are able) to do the majority of the workings, you should probably wait for a project that you can commit to.
This is an exercise in “evoke often!” Let’s get it started!
I highly recommend that anyone interested go read through the original threads, and get a better idea of how this worked out last time, go here:
