What’s your personal relationship with the results you seek?
The ‘devil’ is indeed in the details.
I’ve performed rituals hoping for a result within minutes and nothing happened then, yet all my readings and personal divinations point to the result being inevietable after some cycles and patterns take place.
Personally, I find the best results come about when I genuinely forget about the magick or when I completely immerse myself in making it come about in the material world (knowing that it will come about and “acting as if”)
The book works. The ritual structure has its components for a reason yet I believe the power won’t be any better if you just gaze at a sigil, chant an enn and give a command.
I’ve done both, and the nature of results aren’t faster regardless of how they’re called. Sometimes they’ll both astound you, yet the way the Demons act is so much better with the emotional (angelic) aspects telegraphed in the ritual.
I won’t patronize you and tell you “lolcatz ur just lusting four resultz” but, genuinely look at the way you’re approaching what you’re doing and welcome subtlty. Go “all in” on your result as if you haven’t cast for it at all, yet know the odds are shifted in your favor.
I recently went on a road trip with this girl in my party friend circle. I had cast for her via a sigil months ago. I ended up in a car with her alone for 5 hours and the conversations we had because of what we’d both been through for the past month or two lead to SO much deeper connection than would have been possible if we just banged in one of the side rooms the night after I fired the sigil… That’s happened before and it was damn great yet I wanted something deeper with her and so it took a bit of extra common experience for us both to go “wait, you too?!”
A damn cool logistical change happened shortly after as well… It’s a process and I patiently expect it to run it’s course and I’m not going to fuck it up with “are we there yet?!” It’s working, and I’m loving each developing change that happens, even if it’s an impulse to reorganize my apartment and later finding something we talked about…
Some results might need to take time to lay a foundation required for the result to build from. I like the “3 days, 3 weeks, or 3 months” thing as it lets you know it’s in the cards yet it might need some changes to develop. Also gives you a chance to forget about it (and that’s when results hit you HARD)
Act your rituals with vigor and emotion, know the course of action WILL lead you to what you’ve asked for, and let it happen in any way it wants. Sometimes a girl might turn out to be bipolar and be in a hypomanic state and you just tripped her triggers for “do me now” so she looks like she’s “possessed” and jumps you. Cool. If the stage was set for that, that’s all it took.
If not she might need to have some changes process, you might need to suddenly discover something you were way into years ago and that will be the conversational hook point for the two of you. Takes more time but it leads to something similar thorugh a different path.
Just let it run it’s path. I’ve petitioned spirits through the DOM book and it’s been over a year on some. Every reading I get says it’s on its way and I can see changes gradually progressing to get there. I refuse to write it off as a “failure” because I asked for something very very very specific, and so it is.
Others show up within a few hours… Or moments. It takes the path it can. Know that if you had never cast for it you’d never get it.
Hope this helps. You are the most important part in any manifestation. You are the pathway as well as the killswitch
