Hi @tamatoa , it’s effective but in some cases, it could backfire. If that happens, it would be best to keep repeating the ritual until your positive emotions gain more power, and you see positive results.
For me, that’s a risk I’m not willing to take. I prefer “emotional concentration” not “emotional transmutation” in magick.
Yes exactly, skipping stage one. You’ll find that in “Demons of Magick” book, more clearly in the first ritual, petition for results. you focus on the end result and generate the corresponding emotion/feeling.
The main positive outcome from using the “emotional transmutation” method, is that you will instantly feel emotional change. That’s why in most GoM reviews you’ll find people getting the impression of success, and praising the books, just after doing the rituals and before they see any results at all.
Also keep in mind, that most Damon Brand’s angelic powers, are intenral change. Mental and emotional. “Have clarity of mind”, “forgivness”, “changing thought patterns from negative to positive” etc. And that’s easy to acheive instantly with the “emotional transmutation” method because it does exactly that. Making it very effective, in selling more books for Damon Brand and making cutomers happy. When they needed more physical change to happen, with the release of “Demons of Magick” because most people believe Demons aim for physical verifiable change in life, they didn’t use it. They went back to the original “Focus on end result” method.
Both methods work, eventually. And you won’t notice much difference if you’re using the “emotional transmutation” with things you don’t really care much about. Desire them but without powerful negative emotions attached to them. Such as money problems or difficult breakups etc
In my opinion, there’s no need for it. Simply go for the end result. That’s magick 101, it worked for centuries and will work forever. The emotional transmutation happens naturally, subconsciously. There is no need to do it intentionally in the ritual. You already have negative emotions about whatever problem you need to solve. And you felt that long enough before you start the ritual. Naturally, if the ritual is done right, you will feel change because you focused on the feeling of the end result in the ritual.
I can’t see a practical need for it, except creating the illusion of change fast enough to get those positive reviews faster to boost sales for GoM books
