I wanted to document my journey with “The Magickal Cashbook” by Damon Brand. I find that input and questions from forum members usually helps steer me in the right direction. Plus, I’m pretty open to criticism. Constructive or not.
Allow me to start by saying, this is not my first magickal undertaking. I have another thread on here where I tried to contact Ladilock and things didn’t really go as planned. This is a new venture and something different. I’m the type of person that’s very empirical about data. I love to document and verify results. Try to notice the small things. I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I will put forth a concentrated effort. Both on my own merit and with this magic. My paradigm is Laveyan Satanism. I keep getting pulled towards magic, so I figured try it out. I don’t want to die and have a surprise that all this isn’t just in my head.
It started by me downloading this book from the internet just as a goof to give it a read. Then I went to the website and read that they had placed a curse on people who stole the book. I figured if I’m going to take this 50 something page “book” seriously, I should buy it. It was something cheap like $15. No big deal. Let’s not start off on the wrong foot.
I had been watching Savanaha from Black Witch Coven on YouTube talk about money magic and she used a green candle. Now, this isn’t anywhere in the book or their website, but I had read that Nitika is fond of Green and Orange. I figured, let’s just get a green candle. It felt right for money magic. I’m at HEB doing grocery shopping and thought, hmmm, let me get this green Gain smelling candle, that’ll be nice. Then I couldn’t find a grey and orange notebook so in my head I was just like, “Screw It” and put the candle back on the shelf. As soon as I did that, the glass candle dropped and broken glass everywhere. I apologized and offered to pay because I legitimately felt bad.
Now did it slip? Did I not put it on the shelf right? Did the smallest bit of force push it right as I put it on there. Who knows. Weird though. I ended up going to Hobby Lobby and buying the following. A green candle, a candle holder, the notebook, orange covering for the notebook and some markers. It was about $15. Altogether I’m in this thing $30.
I had arts and crafts time for 30 minutes today and created the book. Need to fill the stuff in on the inside. I can’t share what’s in the book because I feel I shouldn’t. If you search the web or YouTube you’ll find reviews and get an idea of what’s in the book and notebook. I’ll try to speak in generalities about the method, but specifics about me.
It makes common sense that if you only generate $500 a week, you shouldn’t ask for $100,000. Is it possible, sure. Likely? Nope. For me and my 9-5 I generate about $1K a week. I’m asking for $5K, as I personally can think of multiple ways this cash could come to me. I need this money to pay my taxes, but I won’t die if I don’t get it. It’d just be nice. I’m not lusting or super tied to the results.
I’m more excited about the fact that I have created a tool for the spirit world, and more importantly will be trying to contact one. Now, some people just say the words with some fake emotion and just go through the motions like Sunday Church. There’s still a lot I don’t know and I’m sure I’m doing stuff wrong, but I’m giving it a good effort.
The game plan:
This ritual has to be done for up to 11 days in a row. My living room is empty. I don’t have a couch because I don’t use one. So this space is open for ritual. Only work is done in this room, no leisure. I have taken notes on the book as far as what to say and what to do and will follow that best I can. Maybe read the book 1 more time to make sure I got everything covered.
Considering doing the Lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram. The book said that this ritual was designed to where you didn’t have to do that. I was watching Damien Echols and he recommended doing it twice a day to “crystalize your aura”. Whatever that means. It looks like a silly dance to me, but I’m too ignorant on the topic to have an educated opinion.
I don’t know what time of day, or what direction I face, do I sit / stand or things like that. It seems that most people are just doing it and having success. I was told to have a specific need in mind and to focus on what it feels like when it’s met. I’m going to light that candle stand in the center of my living room and have a go at it.
Now for the other side of the coin.
Is this just a ritual to focus my intent and help me focus on my goal? Hard to say. I know humans use rituals to build their lives because we’re social creatures. For example, what we do when we wake up, or the 3242 thing women do before they go to bed. Few parts of life aren’t ritual / habit based.
It could all be a huge waste of time and $30, but I’m willing to believe and take that chance. I’ll check back here tonight for any tips you guys have. I feel good about doing this. I feel honest since I bought the book. I’ve been practicing the Hebrew words to at least sound competent. Ready to give it a go.
Thanks for your time and any feedback you have!
