I can say from experience and from personally trying E.A.'s methods, that his methods so far, what I have tried, have been fool proof for me. I’m not one of those you speak of that pretends to know what I’m talking about. Trust me, I am blatantly honest to an extent where people either hate my guts for being so open and sharing my love of the occult with the people they were trying to convert to christianity or they admire my forthcoming. So I will be the first to tell you which authors, witches, and magicians (in my opinion) are full of shit, those who are obviously just trying to get rich quick but have no real occult experience.
So I can honestly say, if I did not believe for a second that Eric’s methods work, I would not be here. I would not have come to this forum seeking to connect with others who have also found Eric’s work useful. I lived under the title “eclectic wiccan” for many years because being raised in an anti-magick christian home, the only thing I could manage to sneak access to was the lighter wiccan stuff at my local library, online, and whatever my best friend’s mom (who is wiccan) was willing to teach me. But over the years, although I can honestly say that not all wiccan stuff is rainbow clouds and buckets of sunshine crap, I just wasn’t satisfied.
Sure, I got results from the wiccan based magick I did, I also practiced some Norse, Alexandrian, Gardnerian, and Faerie types of witchcraft too but I quickly found that everyone was so against using magick for self gain. What the hell is so wrong with using magick to get some quick cash, to heal yourself, to turn your bad luck around? I saw nothing wrong with it but no matter where I turned to for advice or spells every person, every book, every website that was wiccan or pagan based was no like NOOOOO! you can’t do that, karma! I realized that karma couldn’t possibly be real because most people that are successful are selfish narsicisstic assholes and most people that are kind, generous and caring have nothing to show for it, so the karma logic has to be flawed.
But with all of my friends so unwilling to lead me to spells that I could help myself with I realized the only place to turn was to the darker stuff, where people seem to not care about karma and have no problem with casting self indulgence spells or sharing them with others. I had been studying the darker forms of witchcraft but it still wasn’t enough to satisfy me. An online search on youtube, bored one day and looking for entertainment, lead me to those videos about magicians like Criss Angel, David Blane, and Dynamo being possessed by demons, LOL yeah that BS, then out of nowhere I spotted “why summon entities like Lucifer and Astaroth?” (forgot the exact title) but I had just been working with Astaroth and thought I was being given a sign because of the name of the video so I clicked on it and then I discovered E.A.'s channel.
At first, I will admit, I thought okay a lot of the stuff he is talking about is true but some of it seems odd. He had so many videos that were set up to look like tutorials or lessons that were really just advertisements for his BALG book so I thought, maybe he is just trying to sell his book and one of those magicians that gives you just a tiny bit of free info then urges you to buy his book to hear the rest? But then I realized, although he does advertise quite a lot on his videos and his newsletters, he really did have a great deal of free info online so I ignored the advertising and started trying some of his methods which have all worked for me and worked very well might I add. I then purchased a few of his books when I was ready to. So I will vouch for Eric, his methods are not BS and while yes, some of them are very beginner or intermediate, not all of them are in my opinion and I think it’s good he’s sharing some of the lower level stuff to make sure beginners get it right, to eliminate all the constant mistakes they make because they listened to the wrong person on how to do XX spell, you know, the people that have not a clue what they are doing let alone enough sense to be teaching those methods to beginners.
My ascension has really taken off since using his methods. I even went back thru and did some of the beginner exercises I have already done over and over again to see if his way of doing it was any different than the other methods and just as a refresher which never hurts. But my magickal abilities have never been this advanced and although I owe myself the credit for putting in the effort and time needed to succeed, without E.A.'s guidance I never would have found some of the info I had been looking for online and I never would’ve had the drive to succeed because something about him just verified to me that you can be successful as long as you have the drive to succeed and I am a very determined individual so I figured what the heck, let’s give this a try. I have ascended more in the last 4 months using BALG and LHP methods, than I ever did in several years while practicing solely wiccan methods.
