Vodu Code of Conduct



There are many Vodu society and houses in Haiti and around the world and each group has their rules and regulations. When speaking about Houngans and Mambos I speak for those from my house and most houses I frequent where the laws of LOVE, HONOR, RESPECT, your brothers and sisters and the Loas you been introduced to, are upheld! Houngans and/or Mambos are too busy working on their skills rather than go around posting or bad-talking about one another. We mind our own business and of course we don’t mind if after learning a little bit about Vodu you make fancy spirit bottles or decorated Ouangas packets with feathers that most Houngans have no use for. Those are generally mambo’s items that love decorating their places, but not really found in male houses although there are quite a few exceptions today. If a Houngan desires such, most of the time he will not buy one but will have one of the servants of his house decorate it for him instead.

In general things that are done for the house are done by the people in the house not by outsiders. Those are the ways of the old school. Then again, Vodu is very diversified and tolerant and there is a new generation of foreigners as well as Haitians making things differently today. Indeed changes are acceptable because every house has their own code of conduct. Houngans and Mambos in general don’t work one or two other jobs what they do is magic often called Ouangas (also Wangas) they can also heal many ailments, help with relationships, predict events to come and guide people in business ventures and get people out of incarceration. When you become one from my house (or houses associated with mine) we guide you to become independent and work full time in your field.  Unless you receive your initiation to learn how to serve and are not interested in doing this type of work for others. Sometimes when Houngans start on their own practice they have to build their clientele, but in general after a few years, they focus their life on their career. Houngans make money by doing Ouangas (magic) and helping people. Most Houngans are well versed in herbal medicine. There is no limit onto the guideline of what Houngans can do when it comes to magic as each one is different and has their own gift. Some Houngans read Tarot, some regular playing cards, some chicken bones, and some do reading by looking into cups of water or coffee. Still some can read signs of your forehead while others can read hands, and some are gifted with interpreting dreams. This is just to mention a few of the skills you can run into in this field.

There is also no limit about the amount of gods they can serve and what country these gods are from! That’s also why you see in the beginning of Vodu ceremonies the beautiful flags and their bearers representing many different nations! And if something has been done or is being done in magic anywhere in the world now (or in the past) and in any religion for that matter, it has already been done in Vodu! Understand Vodu is one of the first religions around. Unfortunately there are people that are current Houngans saying this is or that doesn’t exist or has never been done in Vodu. They are not born in the system most aren’t even Haitian let alone African. Little do they know about the sex magic even many Haitian Houngans are ignorant of certain practices in Vodu. Why? Because they have had their religious practices corrupted and mistakenly believe Jesus is their savior! You can believe that. Freedom of practicing and worshiping what you want and no one will infringe on that! Where we come from we don't obey or follow a supreme commander that doesn't exist in Vodu. Every house or societe has their own rules although many are similar. Even pictures assigned to the spirits can differ and some houses do not use images of Saints at all! Not that you are aware that Vodu was banished in the southern part of the United States (Louisiana) because of sex magic! Fertility rituals in Africa involved many secret practices and many sacred large wooden dildos have surfaced in Haiti and foreign countries without the mention of what they were used for! This doesn’t mean because you are in Vodu, you participate in such practices. Just like most are not aware that black masses performed by the clerical Catholics in the early centuries are still secretly in existence today! You don’t have to be a Wiccan or in a coven to perform “the great Rite!” that’s been overdone all over…

Generally in Haiti some of the groups are called from: Guinea, Rada, Petro and service are held mostly for Loas familiar to the Haitians (from Dahome) but there are Houngans that worship gods from different roots all depends on their family ancestors and or how much they traveled around the world. Most foreigners know about the Asogwes but there are many more rites in Haiti where in some, foreigners are not allowed and in some even women are forbidden! Beside the Asogwe you have:
Ibo
Congo
Kwakwa
Makousi
Macaya
Gweto
Kimanga
Deka
Zobop
Cataroulo
Sanpwel
Bizangos
Makandas
and many more!

Most of these groups do not use an Asson, and some of the titles they have are Emperor! Further to belong in some of these groups you have to be cut as I am!

In traditional Vodu, when you become initiated you have a Father and a Mother. The same goes when you become a Mambo. In general, a Haitian male will not go to a female mambo to be baptized unless he is gay and quite often when they are baptized they do not have a father. This procedure does not follow old Haitian traditions. People from all walks of life, whether you were baptized in our society or not, even gay people, are welcome to all our public ceremonies, as most Houmforts uphold the same rules. However some of our rituals do not allow gay people, foreigners or even female mambos - only males that were initiated in the house in privately convened ceremonies that are held secrete in many societies and only the elders and top members can be present at.

The Long Road To Recovery: Helping Others Make It Back



Earlier today I received a wonderful email from a client who I befriended (or was it a friend who became a client) that had hit rock bottom and needed me. It read:

“Dear Moloch, I just wanted to ask you if you could thank your spirits for the job. I also have a line on a house I can move into in the next couple months. Plus, somehow my super shitty credit is gone, and I have "no credit history" so I can start from ground level to build my credit up instead of starting in a 10 foot deep hole. I'm gonna start doing little things to build up my credit so I can get a car loan around tax time. I really appreciate all the time and energy you have put into helping me :) And I really appreciate the spirits that have helped also. And I really doubt I could have gotten this far on my own. Thank you so much. And i'm sorry I'm not in contact with you more, I'm working nights and weekends, and watching my grandson during the day, so I don’t get a lot of time to sleep, or even eat. I'll try to be a better friend from now on. Take care.”

When I met this person some time ago, they were flat broke. No money, no income, zero prospects. They were land locked to where they lived with no transportation to get them to any foreseeable jobs and they had horrible health issues that precluded their ability to stand for hours on end in a factory. Further this individual was isolated from their family over petty squabbles with siblings and their own parents chose sides thus they couldn’t expect any help from family members other than letting them sleep on their couch. 

On top of that, they relied on just two close personal friends of theirs for rides wherever they had to go which put a strain on their relationship with their friends from time to time. Welfare, social security and the government turned this person down on multiple occasions citing they weren’t ethnic or the right gender or didn’t have enough dependents or enough monetary need and so on. It seemed as if this poor soul was just waiting there as a test for me to pick up and work on. The spirits were like, “Here Moloch, this is your test to see if you can do it.”

*whew*

Assessment

The first thing as a spiritual practitioner you have to do is an assessment of the situation. What are you dealing with exactly? Every situation is different thus every case is going to be different and thus you cannot look at a couple of things and simply say, “Oh they just need this and that and here’s the bill” because that’s what quacks do - sell you something without an assessment.

This particular individual wasn’t a novice to spiritual pursuits however they had been taught incorrectly how to work magic and sorcery. In fact, whoever had taught them gave them misinformation from the get-go and most of this info came from on-line ‘groups’ and ‘websites’ which are full of misinformed individuals most of whom are making wild ass guesses (Wag’s) and have little actual experience under their belt.

What this person, we’ll call them Nameless, had been doing was summoning demons and asking for help. Now typically that’s not all that bad however these particular spirits didn’t give a damn about Nameless because I summoned them myself and asked them directly. Thus Nameless’ offerings were all for naught thus I had Nameless immediately STOP the offerings to the several demon spirits they were making petitions to. Why give when you’re receiving ZERO benefit in return?

Further, several divinations confirmed that these spirits were taking the offerings and giving nothing back thus without the feedings, there was nothing to keep the spirits from coming back. So once Nameless stopped feeding the spirits, the beings quit coming around. Some of Nameless’ bad luck began to diminish around this time by just doing this alone however this was NOT enough to fix anything because their life was already ruined and in the pits of despair.

Incremental Steps

Part of the problem with being a spiritual worker is that often you tend to use wide variety of spiritual techniques which often include Judeo-Xian imagery/iconography/liturgy in your workings thus trying to get some clients who have had really shitty upbringing’s and bad relationships with the Church and its denizens can really be a struggle! I myself detested the whole Xian paradigm and lived as an atheist for an entire year before I came to my senses and realized how foolish that thinking was. Sorcery is veiled in many forms and it took quite a bit of cajoling Nameless to get them to use what I suggested on the road to recovery.

First, The Ancestors

Out of everything, Nameless had issues with working with their ancestors and in hindsight with their horrible family, I cannot blame them for their reluctance. However as I’ve repeatedly stated you have to set aside your personal feelings for your living family &/or any members who have died and gone on because you need your ancestors on your side. You have to have them. It’s a requirement. Period. 

They’re your first and last line of defense against a very harsh and cold cruel world. Spiritually they have your back against any intruder or anything who potentially attacks you. When you’re on good terms with your ancestors there’s no feeling in the world like communing with them even for short durations. You feel high afterwards from the endorphin release. But you see some folks have this innate resistance to working with their ancestors thinking this means they have to deal only with their deceased family members. You only have to deal with the family members you got along with and if you didn’t get along with the ones you knew who were alive and passed on, there are plenty you didn’t know and who didn’t know you who are now ancestors that you can work with that will be congenial to you. Thus there is no excuse. Further you also have the Ancestors of Humanity as a second set of ancestors as well. These are the people who go all the way back to when the first apes walked upright. They are our ancestors as well and everyone since.

Thus understand that climbing out of a hell hole means you will need to come forward and start saluting your ancestors. This isn’t the same as ‘worshiping’ on bent knee or prostrating yourself like mainstream religions do. Rather you’re esteeming your ancestors by saluting them. This is simply acknowledging their presence in your life and giving them thanks and respect. It’s a courtesy and little more yet it yields tremendous benefits. The problem is trying to get Joe Sixpack to work with his ancestors when he has no problem summoning Demon Lords of Hell. Pfffft.
*eye roll*

Getting them to cough up $10 to give to a Catholic church for a mass for their ancestors was the toughest battle of all. When someone is flat broke, and they have $0 funds, trying to convince them to give money to a multi-billion dollar religious organization is darn near impossible. Forget that the Catholic church is the only church who has power with the dead. No that doesn't matter because hey we're Pagan and we don't need no stinking Christians! The mass is to smooth things over with the ancestors and mostly deceased family members so they rest better. This helps to keep them from interfering in whatever it is you're trying to do. So I ended up giving Nameless the $10 for the ritual and the $3 for the donation to the poor (like you're supposed to give) when they went and made their arrangements for their ancestral mass.

Psalm & Bath Use

Oy. This was a tough nut to get Nameless to swallow. Nameless thought using the bath was fine but saying the prayer, Psalm 51:7 or Psalm 51:10 was “unnecessary”. *sigh* (Yet more uphill battle!) Still I persevered, cajoled, argued, and finally insisted Nameless use the prayer. They did grudgingly. And more bad luck seemed to fall away.

I began to use Psalms here along with other specific prayers for Nameless in an effort to get them work and a better life. At this time I was concerned with them having shelter, food and transportation so they could get a job. Nameless began to get some use from a friend’s car while they were at work but that eventually dried up so the luck didn’t hold out.

Next thing I did was a series of Uncrossing Rituals. I had Nameless give me a lock of their hair and a photograph. I performed a daily Uncrossing on Nameless for 21 days in the hopes of removing as much psychic crud from them as possible. I performed the Uncrossing Ritual as stated the first two weeks and the third week I used a white skull candle only in the hopes to remove as much problems with Nameless' ancestors as I could in case there were issues that Nameless was unaware of. Sometimes when people play with certain cthonic spirits like Demon Lords, some ancestors can get uppity over it thus a white skull candle and some holy oil tends to mellow out those ancestors quite well.

Enter Radionics

Early on, I began to utilize one of my old tried and true methods, my very own designed Radionic machines, the 3DRSM (3 Dial Radionic Sorcery Machine) and I dialed a rate for Nameless then used a prosperity template to beam it to them. Over time I experimented using various things as prosperity patterns from photos of piles of money to cornucopias to spirit seals such as Bune and the Kamea of the Sun (for new money). It was around this time Nameless was able to receive some minor job training through county Welfare but sadly this was merely seasonal work so once the season was finished, Nameless was unemployed once again. Hmmm!

I wasn’t about to give up on my Radionics either as I began to experiment using various ideas from Vodu dolls to photographs and hair samples to a bindrune of Nameless’ real name in full. I realized that the best I could do was to chip away at all of this that was holding Nameless back so that they could eventually break free. Thus I plugged one of my amplifying units into my 3DRSM to add power and then once again Nameless had yet another minor breakthrough. This time a move out of the country to civilization (into the big city) but Nameless was going to live where they could actually ride RTA or be within walking distance of an actual job.

Time Passes, Tragedy Strikes

When you work on someone as a project, you have to expect that as a spiritual worker, there will be peaks and valleys in results. To always believe that the road to recovery is paved smooth is silly and makes you look like a rank amateur because even recovering addicts have relapses thus why shouldn’t recovering bottom hitters? You’re going to lose your grip while climbing up out of the hole and fall back in, so what? Get up, dust yourself off and try again. The key is to not give in.

I got a message from Nameless that tragedy struck. They lost their home and were forced to move. I’d rather not say why or what the tragedy was about to preserve Nameless’ identity but suffice to say it was horrid. So Nameless was forced to move yet again and this time out of the big city and back towards the rural area once again but with the exception that they managed to make a new friend who took pity on them and gave them a decent home to live in and use of their vehicle.

It was around this time I performed a Vodu ceremony where I called Erzulie Dantor and asked her about Nameless’ predicament and what all could be done. Dantor put one of Her own on the case and told me it would take time but Nameless would have a life once again in due time.

Several Months Ago

I checked in with Nameless and was told that things were beginnig to look up. The new roommate/landlord was really cool and allowed Nameless to use their vehicle to look for work and was giving Nameless some minor paper work to do for their own business they were employed in. Thus Nameless had a - albeit minor - part time job.

It was around this time when I had business to summon one of The 72, Seere, who makes things happen quickly, and I made it my business to ask about Nameless in my list of inquiries to this particular spirit I was working with. I told Seere that Nameless needed GOOD things to happen fast because time was running out for them. Their life needed positive change and they needed income fast. Seere assured me such was on the way.

It was then about two months ago I had need to summon Dantor for some reason and she mentioned Nameless and told me, “That one will be all right. I’ve seen to it. “ Thus I stopped all work on Nameless’ plight and figured I had done all I could do since Dantor made Her proclamation known. Okay when a LWA says, “It’s done”, you stop and let it go. Then yesterday I got the email. :)

In Summary

This was one of the toughest cases that I ever took on. It really tested my own beliefs in JuJu and sorcery because so much of what I tried didn’t seem to work. Yet the issue was that Nameless had such a horrible air of problems and bad luck about them that it took quite a bit to get them to where they are today. Realize too that I have not touched upon the countless divinations and Uncrossing's I’ve performed for this person let alone the untold amount of prayers I’ve offered in their name along with visualizations and chants, spells and cones of power cast at them all in an effort to rid them of what was holding them back to that they could at the very least just move ahead like everyone else.

If you’ve hit rock bottom, realize it’s a slow climb out even WITH JuJu on your side and I’m considered to be half decent at it so imagine if you’re a rank Novice that it’s going to be a long time to see the light of day but rest assured you will. Just keep chipping away and you will.

My purpose in sharing this with you is to show you that even with the toughest cases, there is hope. You just have to persevere, keep your client from giving up and throwing in the towel, and keep chipping away. That’s really all you can do. Because you are after all helping someone rearrange and recreate a new life for themselves and when you think about that in such a grand scale, that’s not anything quick nor simple. Thus be patient and stay diligent. The reward is wroth the effort. :)

WHY Is Brother MOLOCH So Angry?



The world is full of idiots, simpletons and morons, right? Wrong. The world is full of people who DO dumb things, SAY dumb things and BELIEVE dumb things. Then when you point out their foolish beliefs, comments or actions as such, they identify their ego’s with the bad behavior/actions/beliefs. The fact is we are NOT our beliefs, nor are we our actions nor are we what we say; we are unique individuals who are subject to change without notice. Allow me to elucidate...


You are first and foremost a person, an individual. For this alone you should be proud. There’s no one else quite like you. Now you have opinions, ideas, beliefs, thoughts, attitudes - all of which have changed and will continue to change as you learn new things, and gather new information then process it. True it may be a long time for some of these to change but then serious change is worth waiting for. Still you are a person. You are NOT those things because they’re just “thoughts” of yours and thoughts come and go regardless of how good or bad they are.


The problem with many people, myself included, is when an idea or thought is pointed out to be archaic, outdated, unsupported by facts and logic or just outright weird, we tend to get uppity about it. Why? Our ego. Funny how everyone points to the magician and tells him, “You’re a magician/sorcerer and since you’re enlightened you shouldn’t be that way!” Really? Pot-Kettle-Black! See? Of course you don’t because you’re too busy complaining about someone else. Truth is even enlightened individuals are still human - they have emotions and who wants to walk around like a bloody emotionless robot? Do you? Of course not else YOU’D be enlightened, right? So if you don’t want to, then WHY do you want others to be that way?


Still when someone points out an idea as ‘whacked’ (to use a nicer term), why must everyone get on the EMO bandwagon and have a cry? Or get all butt-hurt over it? Sure the sting of realization that your idea is ludicrous hurts but it passes. Do you think I’ve not heard this myself on more than once occasion? A GOOD teacher will NOT sugar coat the truth. Rather he will be blatantly honest and tell you like it is. Period. We’re adults here, folks, not elementary school. This isn’t kindergarten. Now if I were dealing with children of that ilk, then of course I’d use a much gentler hand. However you’re all adults. At least I expect you to be because I do NOT teach children. 21 y/o + only and preferably someone not living with their parents.


People think I’m angry at them. Hell, everyone on FecesBook to some of the occult forums out there believe this garbage. *smh* Nothing could be further from the truth. Why? Well first off I’m not calling any particular person, except political candidates, directly an idiot, all right? I’m NOT angry at people; I’m angry at the STUPID SHIT they SAY, they BELIEVE and they DO! If you cannot understand the difference, then stop reading right here and go read some McWiccan books because that’s more on your level of comprehension.


For instance, when I use the terms “McWiccan”, “Ceremonial Moron”, “Hoodooling” or “Snorecerer”, it’s meant to be a blanket term for those who are engrossed in foolish and whacked ideas, beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes. Typically I don’t label Josef Fynnibachten (Gods I hope there’s no one by that name!) a McWiccan even if he’s an air head. Typically I reserve the insulting terminology for my readers as a way of differentiating how to do something good versus how to do something stupid. Hello? Remember the kid’s magazine “Hi Lights”? Remember the section called “Goofus and Gallant”? Gallant did everything the proper way but Goofus did things the dumb way? Think of my harsh terms as my way of mentioning Goofus in a metaphysical manner. ;) They’re not meant to be insulting to any of you in particular - unless that boot laces up then go ahead and wear it!


I get paid Z-E-R-O for my time on these social media sites. That means I’m wasting what little precious free time I have to post on these sites and when I see something idiotic, by the gods I have to point it out. Oh sure I could do so in a friendly manner but when I have do so in the past, no one listened to me nor paid me any heed. They instead listened to others so I figured if I juiced up my posts a bit with some off color terms then perhaps I may get noticed more. It worked quite well although lately I’m running into amateur psychologists who are doing their best to label me “cantankerous”, “bitter”, “angry” and so on, when they don’t know me or anything about me other than what I’m willing to share.


When I’m on these sites posting serious How-To information to help you, I am in effect wasting time because I could be helping a new or existing paying client or doing some charity work for some child who needs an operation. Thus when I see some fool come along and post something downright moronic, it just begs to be pointed out as moronic. That’s not me calling the poster a moron but what s/he SAID is moronic. Because as you read this, you know damn good and well you yourself have said something stupid to someone and regretted it on at least ONE occasion if not more. Are you a stupid person? No instead you just said something stupid and we all make that mistake. Also it’s good when others point it out to us because if they don’t, we continue to march right along saying the same stupid things, eh? ;)


So no, I’m not angry. I’m making $0 money for posting valuable ideas, thoughts, tips, techniques, book reviews, excerpts, suggestions, references, and more online AND on top of that, I’m expected to be happy, nice and blah-blah-blah because that’s what YOU want from me. Pfffffft! I’ll remember that the next time YOU have one of those days, putz. Wait and see.

Don't Mistake Confidence for Arrogance


About 16 years ago, I was involved in door-to-door sales which involved the knocking of doors obviously. Like a lot of people I had high anxiety at knocking on the doors due to all sorts of fears rattling through my mind which prevented me from making any real money. I was a decent enough closer who once I was able to get a qualified customer in front of me, I could present to and give them an opportunity to make an informed decision of yea or nay. But to get to that point in D2D sales  you need to first have the confidence to knock doors and make phone calls. Enter the above book...

I was in Half Price Books one Friday night looking at their business, marketing and sales books to see what I could unearth that may have a nugget of gold that I could use or adapt to my practice. That night I was looking for something to help me overcome my fear of rejection and then I saw this book sitting there on the shelf. Now you have to understand I was not nearly as shy as I was growing up but I was MUCH shyer than I am today. You see I grew up with a very poor self-esteem and no one in my family ever bothered to help me overcome this poor self-image or lack of self-esteem. I had to do it on my own.

Obviously this affected my paycheck via my negotiation skills and it also affected my lackluster, non-existent love life that didn’t get started until I was in my early 20's. I wasn’t stupid by any stretch. A little green maybe at that age but who isn’t? My problem was confidence. But hey when you grow up with a physical handicap and you’re told all your life “You’ll never be able to do (fill in the blank)” or “You can’t do (fill in blank)” what are you supposed to become? Definitely NOT "the most interesting man in the world", that’s for certain. In fact I was so backwards and shy that my stomach used to cramp up at hearing my own named called over a loudspeaker or in an office setting.

Well that Friday night I bought one book, Walter Anderson’s and there were a LOT of other books I wanted as well but I decided I was going to dedicate the entire weekend to studying his course and doing the exercises to help me come out of my shell. At the same time I had began to do a series of workings with Tiriel over business and I felt He wanted me to pursue this book to the exclusion of all else until I got the material down pat. So I focused and that’s what I did. I sad down, shut off the computer, opened a fresh theme book and pack of pens then began to read. The course is not difficult as Mr. Anderson’s writing style is smooth and easy to comprehend. There is much worthwhile in the course book to study and make use of. Literally you cannot do the entire book in just two days as it really takes a full week at the least but better if you take your time and stretch it out some.

With each day I learned something new and got more excited about my beginning confidence. I also noticed that as my personal confidence gained, my attitude changed. I went from being this quiet, mostly reserved guy into more of an outspoken yet sociable individual. Not overnight mind you but over time. Sadly I did not pick up the skills and habits fast enough to save my D2D job so I got let go. *shrugs* When you don’t produce, they let you go. However I applied for a sales position at a new company that sold Amish raised beef, pork and poultry meats.

At first the company was providing me with leads and I was doing quite well closing deals but the real money came when our sales manager was wanting us to re-work each other’s leads that either were no-show’s or flat out no-sales. I ended up getting a stack from a guy who pre-qualified his own leads (even though the company already qualified his lead for him.) So I began calling his leads and wow B. really honked his prospects off. (I never argued with prospects because I didn’t care if they bought or not.) B. always argued with his and he’d walk in saying, “Only an idiot would turn down something as great as this!” thus why we called him the Sledgehammer

Anyway, I got hold of one of B’s leads that he had honked off over the phone. Yes she wanted to speak to me. Why? Well her mother had our service, or one just like it, when she lived in North Carolina. (Holy crap, that is awesome to hear!) She affirmed to me that she and hubby COULD afford this (he was a collections mgr for a big outfit, she a stay at home mom) and wanted me to drive 2 hours to meet with them. Okay so I shored up my confidence and went. Long story short, 1.5 hours with them over dinner and the kids, signed contracts, down payment, and double commission in my pocket all because I had the confidence to pick up the phone and make a call then go see them! And I asked them for referrals. ;)

After that the gravy train rolled into town because I got brazen! I began asking for referrals on EVERY call I made whether I made a sale or not! Yuppers, even if I just met them for fifteen minutes I’d ask for referrals and guess what? I usually walk out with at least three names and numbers to call. Why? All because I had the confidence to ask. Yes confidence. Ask and ye shall receive!

The bottom line is this: most of the best stuff in life requires confidence of some type. If you lack confidence, why not shore yours up by taking the time to read Anderson’s book and check yours against his checkpoints? Trust me, there’s quite a bit you may learn from this course. There are useful writing scenarios as well as essays for your own benefit that can help you pinpoint where your weaknesses lie.

Every job and position in the world requires confidence of some type. It is what it takes to make it big. Even driving a vehicle requires confidence in your skills and abilities to pilot it. Often people have the requisite skill to do so but they lack the confidence to do it. I’ve tutored several young folks and middle aged folks to get their driver’s licenses and their biggest fears were wrapped up in lack of self-confidence.

Sometimes occultists, wiccans, witches and even sorcerers who lack result may just have confidence issues. Now obviously NOT in every case but in cases where there should be little resistance to their request, usually the culprit is they lack the confidence.

Conditioning is the bad guy who causes the real lack of confidence in our society. Being told something repeatedly until you believe it has a major effect on your abilities both inner and outer. So before you go blaming the incense or astrological timing, make certain your lack of result isn’t due to your poor self esteem or lack of confidence. Is it possible your lack of result is due to your lack of confidence? Perhaps you fear what someone else said? Maybe someone you hold in very high esteem? I ask because sometimes, that's all it takes to put barriers up to our confidence is someone else telling us in an offhand way that such and such is not going to work or blah-blah-blah.

Personal Investment Equals Better Success (& More Power!)



We live in a modern, digital age where there truly LAZY can have just about their every whim sated. There’s little left for anyone to really do other than push buttons since most of the grunt work is being done by slave labor in third world nations like Cambodia, China, India and so on where people work for an entire day what here in the US someone is paid for one hour’s worth of work.

Our modern music sucks because it is devoid of any semblance of emotion and feeling since all you need is just a singer and a computer. And if you can’t sing, you can find software to alter your shitty voice so you sound passable as a singer. In a way today we live in a marvel of a time because of these technological wonders. But there’s one thing missing: personal investment.

For instance, today you can download a song that some schmuck uploaded at a whim because he may have decided he doesn’t like the band ___ so he wants to screw them over and give their new song away free to everyone just to piss the band off and chet them out of any fair monies they could make. “But Moloch, back in the day, we copied songs from the radio, cassettes and records onto cassettes and traded/gave them to others! What’s the difference?”

Plenty! First you had to buy the blank cassette (unless you stole it ya damn thief) then you had to spend time listening to the radio and waiting patiently for the song to come on so you could record it thus you invested time. If you recorded an album or dubbed it from another cassette, you still had to spend the time to set it up and record it. Digital ignores all of that. With digital there’s no investment of you at all. None. Period.

If you borrowed a book from someone to read and copy from, you sat there with either a blank book and pen or some loose leaf pages and a pen and you wrote the pages out by what we called long hand. Time consuming? Yes and it’s called personal investment of time, energy and effort. You don’t get that when you download a book.

See, you punks today are LAZY. All you really want is “McMagic”. You’re just like your McWiccan counterparts who simply show up and pretend to give a shit and are there to put on their drama show for everyone. You’re not interested in real JuJu that works, you want to pare everything down to where it’s so watered down that there’s nothing left that originally looks like the original spell or ritual. That’s not magic; instead that’s McMagic.

You’ve been conditioned to think the Spiritual world owes you something. It doesn’t. You don’t invest anything personal into this so why should the spirits give a rat’s ass what your problems are? You thieve books and don’t even bother to hand copy them into a blank book, (even the passages that you actually care about!) and yet you assume their JuJu should work equally well when you have done jack shit to earn respect from the world of the spirits.

Seriously, look at yourself in the mirror and ask, “HOW can I expect results when I’m not willing to invest in myself?” You’re willing to waste money on bullshit you know you don’t need yet you refuse to buy a book because hey that would cost you a nickel and help an author out. Thus you steal the author’s book, especially the ones still alive, and use it without thought to his or her hard work. You’re a piece of shit and you think the world of the spirits should respect your commands to do what you tell them? Seriously? You're deluded!

Your issue is you fail to see that you have not invested anything be it time, money or effort into this for the author, their book, its system or even the spirits and yet you want money, fame, power, authority, happiness, success, love and more. In other words you want something for nothing. Sorry Charlie, it doesn’t work this way. I hate to tell you but the spirits are real and they put limitations on how much JuJu you can command and use. (As well they should!) When you decide to stop being an ass and start personally investing in your magic and sorcery by buying the books you need or borrowing and hand copying them (like you should!) then perhaps your JuJu will get stronger and more potent.

So your issues need to be resolved. These issues are laziness and stinginess. You can resolve the latter easiest by simply buying the books, even the used ones. Yes I fully understand the used book market is often high dollar to invest in. *shrugs* Take it from someone who has been gouged before it’s not fun. Now with that said, IF you are patient, watchful and wary, you CAN find just about any book you want at an affordable price on any of the used sites out there from Amazon to eBay to Half.com to Abe Books. Just be patient and watchful. I’ve built up my own collection this way and not paid more than $60 for any used book that I wanted badly by doing this with the vast majority of them under $30. If I can do this, you can as well.

Look, you have all sorts of $$$ to blow on bullshit you do NOT need to be spiritual like cigarettes and tobacco, liquor and beer, marijuana and street drugs, junk food, concert and movie tickets, pizza, Tchotchke junk (re: occult/esoteric knick–knacks), and other stuff you don’t need YET if someone asks you to spend $15-$30 for an occult/spiritual book, OMG! Screw you! That’s just too damn much money! I can’t afford that! Really? You’re a liar and you need to stop with your nonsense and take a good hard look at yourself. The magicians in Agrippa’s day didn’t pull this crap and those that did weren’t anyone of important note who aren't remembered today so do you want to be someone remembered down the road or someone forgotten?

Even if you borrow a book from the library and stand at a photocopying machine dropping in quarters to photocopy the pages that you’re only interested in, THAT’S at least investing in it! Hello? Your time and money is being spent. Same if you spend time long hand copying passages or *whew* the entire book. The spirits RESPECT this. They respect practitioners who spend time, money and energy trying to better themselves, not the lazy cretins trying to get something for nothing. Remember that the next time you’re trying to figure out why your JuJu isn’t working the way it ought to or the way you think it should.

How to Make Your N.A.P. Book A Talisman of Power





How to Make Your N.A.P. Book 
A Talisman of Power
by Brother MOLOCH 9.6.9.
© April 2016 molochsorcery.com All Rights Reserved


For this rite to actually work, you must do one of these two things: 

1. Buy an original copy of the the Miracle of the New Avatar Power by Geoff Gray-Cobb.

Or...

2. Copy by hand the how-to contents (minus the case stories) from N.A.P. into a special, brand new, blank book.

The reason for this is that you are showing the spirits you mean business. Just downloading a pirated copy and printing it off shows no personal sacrifice from you, in any way - be it time, effort nor monetary.

You will need:
Your N.A.P. Book
Holy Water
Holy Oil
Blessed Salt
Incense: frankincense & myrrh
2 white work candles (votive, tea light, Shabbat, household or taper are fine)
1 white candle

Instructions:

Pour your Holy Water into a convenient spray bottle. (Most department and dollar stores sell them.) Spritz the candles to wash away any ill affects they may have accumulated and wipe them clean with fresh paper towels. Dress your candles with the Holy oil and place in suitable candle holders. The two work candles you will place at the rear of your work table, one on the right and one on the left. The third white candle will be set in the middle of the work table. Incense holder can be placed anywhere on your work table that’s convenient for you.

Begin by facing east and light your right rear work candle then your left rear work candle. 

Now light your incense. 

Say, “I call out to the spirits of the New Avatar Power system to witness this ritual and to make it holy, sacred and binding!” 

Spritz the eastern corner once with the Holy Water. 

Bow (Do this by slightly by bending your knees and coming straight back up without bending forward thus you’re curtsying.)

Next you will turn right and face west. Repeat the sentence you said in the east, bow and spritz with Holy Water once again. Then you will turn left until you face north. Repeat the sentence, bow and spritz with Holy Water. Turn right to face the south. Repeat as you have in the other three corners. You are ready to begin. 

Set the bottle of Holy Water on your work table. Relax and begin your Miracle of the New Avatar Power relaxation ritual. 

When finished, begin the Central Pillar ritual. 

Then perform the New Avatar Power Circulation ritual.

Next, perform the New Avatar Power Fountain ritual.

Finally, recite the Invocation to Strengthen the Fountain of Your New Avatar Power.

When finished, you will say, “Spirits of the system of the New Avatar Power!” (Lift your N.A.P. book aloft) “I bring this book to you. I have duly sacrificed for it. You are witness to this sacrifice. I ask that you turn this book into a talisman of power so that any time I use it in any ritual manner I choose, it adds to the strength and power of the ritual!”

Now hold your NAP book and pass it gently through the flame of the center white candle and say, “In the presence of the New Avatar spirits, I baptize thee with flame!”

Pass the book gently through the incense smoke and say, “In the presence of the New Avatar spirits, I baptize thee with air!”

Hold book and sprinkle with some salt and say, “In the presence of the New Avatar spirits, I baptize thee with earth!”

Then hold the book and using just a tiny bit of Holy Oil on the tip of your dominant hand’s index finger, gently rub it on the spine of the book and say, “In the presence of the New Avatar spirits, I baptize thee with water!”

Now, facing east, hold the book aloft and gently mist the air above the book with the Holy Water. Allow the misty vapor to land on the book. (You can immediately wipe it off with a clean, fresh paper towel.) As you mist, you will say, “I baptize you, O book of New Avatar Power, as my personal grimoire of power. Work for me and I shall care for you until the end of my days. So be it!”

Now you will bow and then turn right and face west and mist again allowing the vapor to gently land on your book and wipe it off and repeat what you did in the east then repeat each step by turning to the north and then the south. (Remember, you start in the east, then turn right to the west, then turn left to the north then turn right to the south.)

When finished, your book is consecrated. Let it set on your work table with the middle white candle setting next to it in a safe candle holder. When the candle has finally burnt out, your book is ready to be used or put away for safe keeping.

This is now a talisman of power, not a mere book to shove back on the shelf. Thus you will need to treat it special and give it respect. I would wrap it in a white towel or silk sloth and place in a drawer somewhere until you need to use it. You could have a special pouch or slip case made for it to slide the book into when not in use and keep it near your work table.

Seeking A Balance Between Today's Greater and Lesser Authors



There's a trend in modern occultism for practitioners to want to settle only for scholarly material on the occult, as if letters behind a name signifies the author will be accurate and his methodology somehow foolproof. At the same time, there's a growing disdain for anything that doesn't smack of this intellectual elite.

We certainly do need to keep our minds fertile ground for new scholars rising up in the ranks among practitioners. Solid research is needed to convey historical data that, has often in the past, been purely in the realm of conjecture. Today we're seeing newer occult scholars who are gaining ground in learning ancient tongues and scripts which help decipher tablets, scrolls and texts that have often baffled non-occult scholars. Further these young researchers are purging ahead with deciphering not only scripts, but also symbols, glyphs and errata found on old talismans often thought undecipherable such as what Andy Foster has done with the Heilig Pentagram from the 6th & 7th Books of Moses grimoire.

Unfortunately people are wired for ‘either/or’ thinking being usually brought up that way by their parents and schooling and thus what is IN today is OUT when the next thing comes around the bend. So we have people who for years clamored for practical how-to information when all that was available was scholarly material on the occult most of which was historical. Then a shift came about a decade ago where these same folks began to take scholars more seriously since the scholars began to present more than just history, they started to show manuals that were buried in library and museum archives then brought them to the pubic eye. Today the shift has come full circle where nothing is seen worthwhile unless a professor’s name has letters after it which should not be the case since there are some worthwhile scholars rising who have yet to attain any sort of academic recognition.

To make matters worse, there are lesser works of magic and sorcery that are scorned by these intellectual elites (elitism?) who by their snobbery are now using their influence to literally shit on authors that have significance and validity even though these lesser authors are not academics. Granted the lesser authors have a easier time selling their materials as they often "pander to the lowest common denominator in society", quoted by a well known and outspoken ceremonial magicKian even though this same CM fails to realize that the lowest common denominator happens to be PEOPLE WITH PROBLEMS unlike himself who happens to be a deluded savior who thinks he walks on water.

The lesser works of sorcery have always been about helping people with how-to material. In fact, most all of the grimoires going all the way back to ancient Egypt have sorcerous spells that deal with day to day common things like:

  • obtaining love
  • success in business
  • guidance for knowledge/wisdom
  • dealing with adversaries
  • help with weather (for crops)
  • assistance with livestock
  • obtaining a favorable court judgment
  • and so on.


This is why people seek out sorcery and magic in the first place, not to become a scholar in it. The goal of a scholar is most admirable yet I do believe many who have attained this role have let it go to their head much like scholars of the past did when they became kooky and acted odd. After all, once you’re tops in your field, you can do whatever you wish and no one will say anything to you about your behavior. Don’t believe me? Read about the ancient philosophers and their quirky lives. Hell, look at the plethora of odd professors running around universities today acting strange and weird. Intellectuals often are a strange lot but we shouldn’t blame the bushel for a few bad apples.

The lesser works of sorcery do fill a need in our society, our metaphysical society, that must be filled. And yes it is quite true that there are charlatans afoot behind every rock waiting to take someone for every nickel they can bargain. Let’s face it, that is never going to go away. Look at all of the charlatans parading around in the mainstream religions folks; where do you think occult charlatans get their ideas from in the first place? (Why reinvent the wheel?) And to be fair, history has taught us that there have been no small amount of charlatans who posed as scholars to sell a book with false credentials. Medieval manuscripts teach us that there are numerous occult books attributed to the likes of Agrippa or Alpharabius who never penned yet their names are on these forgeries. This begs the question how many such instances of books will be brought forth once the likes of Owen Davies, Richard Kieckefer or Stephen Skinner are long gone? Say in 100 years someone may come out with another meaty manual of magic with Dr. Richard Kieckefer or our own Dr. Stephen Skinner’s name all over it even though he had nothing to do with it. Expect this WILL happen perhaps not with him but someone’s name will get used and most likely smeared as a result.

Scholarship unfortunately is not the handmaiden of practical workings. Why? Most scholars spend their time doing research in libraries and reading which is tedious work. Note taking and cross referencing materials is often drudgery and tiresome, I know because I’ve done this myself on occasion. It’s like why aren’t great mechanics good racers themselves? They build and maintain the vehicle but someone else takes the risks out on the track. The occult research scholar is the mechanic and the practitioner is the racer who takes the risks on the track. But let us remember too that some practitioners write books themselves and while their material isn’t scholarly it can often be usable and worthwhile.

Lately I’ve been turning on the members of my online discussion group to some old occultists that rarely got a chance to shine. Today these late, lesser known occultists get sneered at for various reasons by elitists and yet the members are trying these lesser works of sorcery and discovering for themselves that they have missed out. Many of them have been misinformed by scholars that such books are a waste of time and then taken on a wild ride of history which in itself is fascinating though often dry but has little practical application. The problem with this is when you have scholars preaching opinions instead of presenting facts from research. Some of them begin to sound like “Dr. Ken Hamm” clones who may seem to know what they’re talking about (when it comes to lesser magics)  but in the end they wind up sounding more like kooks bitching for the sake of complaining about the plethora of lesser works on the market.

Some of these lesser occultists have been authors from the  Parker Publishing world such as Anthony Norvell or Theodor Laurence and Geoff Gray-Cobb. I’ve also been introducing folks to the likes of Ophiel whose books on Astral Projection and Creative Visualization are legendary in many occult circles. Anthony Norvell had a strong run at Parker producing some memorable titles in healing and metaphysical uses of chakras. Geoff Gray-Cobb offered both a simple method of spirit summoning and a short catalog of spirits to summon for aid.

Other authors I plan to introduce will be a surprise but for now suffice to say that none of them are academics and they’re not bad authors in the least. Their material is sharp and spot on. Just because they’re not practicing Solomonic material does not exclude them from worthwhile study and use, especially for those of you who are interested in learning how to get things done without having to wait for the planets to align properly as the medieval practitioners most certainly did.

In closing, what I’d like for you to take away from this is to remember that both the greater and lesser authors as well as their works are needed in our metaphysical society. Not everything needs to be fixed with a spirit found in a 14th century manuscript nor must we always consult a post-modern book on sorcery to find answers to nagging questions. Just realize that the balance is a thin line that few dare to walk and none like to stand on for long else the crowd can become hostile wanting to take pot-shots. Employ some common sense and use your noggin. Research, study and grow. Also, be not afraid of modern authors because you may pick up something useful to add to your repertoire.
