I have a problem that I am hoping someone can help me with. I have been experimenting with several of Damon Brand's books, with semi-success, I mean, things have definitely happened, but I feel that my roommate is somehow blocking my magick mentally or spiritually (she is very mainstream religious). Moving out is not an option at this time, so I don't know what to do. I have tried 3 times with explosive results each time, but the results were destructive and damaging on the physical plane,(with results ranging from fires to lightening to floods....literally!) rather than manifesting wealth like I had desired. Anyone else with this problem? How can you remove someone else's block on you? Thanks so much.
No one can block your magick unless you've allowed them to block your magick already in your field. This is the entire secret meaning of the Strength card in the Tarot. Think of the story of Daniel in the lion's den. The lower consciousness must obey the higher consciousness by Universal Law. But this is not something that you can command through an energy of fear or lack, it's something that you command in the very atmosphere about you that you create. The blocks are within you. So the real question is: why are you allowing yourself to be blocked through a mental association to mainstream religion? (Your roommate is a cop out)
Here you have this book so you can defend yourself from those attacks:http://99pooof.gq/book.php?req=Damon%20Brand&title=Magickal+Protection:+Defend+Against+Curses+Gossip+Bullies+Thieves+Demonic+Forces+Violence+Threats+and+Psychic+Attack
I actually have that book, but haven't used it., as from the last disaster that hit us (right after me using magick, so I know it was from that) was the basement flooding, so I actually put it all away for a bit. Do you think if I use this book I can still utilize magick for what I want? Thanks
I wouldn't say that you "know" the disasters were caused by your magick, nor by your magick's proximity to your roommate. You may strongly suspect, but just for clarity's sake, lets define it properly ;-)
But you suspect strongly enough that you're intimidated to invite disaster again, fair enough. Hmmm Nothing is immediately coming to mind, except perhaps curiosity about the exact nature of the incongruency you perceive between you working magick and your roomate's religious beliefs. Without knowing this, I can only guess that you're talking about ritual magick, and your roommate views such as evil as per 'good christian values', etc.
I guess one concern I have, is whether it is your roommate causing the problem directly, or whether your proximity to them is affecting your preconcious thought & emotions enough to cause you to botch your own magick? If this is the case then the problem lay within rather than with your roommate. I'm not saying that is the case, but it's an idea to consider.
One thing I have noticed about supernatural effects, is that they are not particularly bound by space-time. In fact I consider this one of the most defining (and telling) traits. So I mean, you can be 10 feet away from someone, or 1000 miles away, and there could be extra-natural interaction between you, or not, at either distance.
Which... makes me ponder why your roommate's proximity could be causing a problem.
It is true that it's "easier" to interact spiritually with others up close, because of various cues physical cues, or frequency of communication, which draw the consciousness to focus on each other.
It's possible that thinking about your roommate and their attitudes, while doing magick, is entangling her with your magick. If that's the case, then you could only really deal with it by purging them from your mental space while working. But that can be tricky, it's always tricky to NOT think about something, without inadvertently thinking about it. For example, if i asked you to, for the next 10 minutes think about anything you like, just so long as you do not think about an apple... how difficult would it be to go 10 minutes without thinking about an apple? In a way it would almost curse you to be incredibly likely to think about an apple. Definitely an issue on the sticky side of how cognition works. And unfortunately, dwelling on another person creates a sort of interaction between you and they.
I suspect that your impression of their feelings about you doing magick would likely only have a significant effect on your working if you came from a background which instilled some of the same religious ideas that your roommate has, even if you abandoned these ideals, they could leave an emotional impression in you. This could cause a kinda tapping into repressed guilt or fear on some level, which could really taint things.
On the other hand, it's possible that they being aware that you are doing "evil magick stuff" are simply radiating a sort of ill intent towards your magickal workings, perhaps without even directly meaning to. This would put the crux of your problem on their thought processes rather than your own. On the upside, this possibility is much easier to deal with. Dealing with this might be as straightforward as warding your working space against their negative attitude towards you doing magick.
On a magickal level (obviously not on a physical level, but on the level where the magick happens), you're only really as close to, or far away from, someone/thing as your (and their) mental focus creates. I would think utilizing that understanding, and/or brute force warding, would be your main tools to solve the problem.
I'm curious how it will go. Assuming you do try to work out a solution. I would, but I've got a mad scientist gene. I feel like i'm being lazy and uninspired if I don't manage to blow up the lab every so often.
