Let’s Talk About Your Reading Habits…

So a while back we had some good discussions over on the Strategic Sorcery group about what books people were reading, and after we got all the occult/magic/spirituality stuff out of the way I asked what non-occult books people read in the last year. While many people came forth with some great books more than a few people commented that the number of non-occult/magic/spirituality books they had read was ZERO.

This is not good.

Don’t get me wrong, as an author of occult texts I am thrilled at your continued interest in reading my books and the books of others like me, but a literary diet of only occult/magic/spirituality books is not a health diet at all. Worst yet, its actually counter-productive to success in those fields.

NON-FICTION

The saying “you are what you eat” extends not only to literal food, but knowledge that you consume. Reading consistently on a given subject not only gives us new information about that subject, but also keeps us motivated and thinking about it.

If you are trying to improve your finances or start a business you should be reading as much about money and business as you are about magic. Probably more. But because magic is the zone of whats interesting and comfortable, a lot of people just keep reading more and more books on magic, or looking for the one spirit that will just take care of this pesky money issue.

Same is true for health – it is wonderful to wield a solar talisman, but if you actually know about diet, health, exercise, neurology, psychology, and a host of other topics it will give that talisman something really firm to work with and keep you thinking on it and working on it.

Love. Man I can’t even tell you how much your love magic would be helped along by some social graces and reading books by and about the other sex (or same sex).

Even if your only interest is illumination and magic for the sake of magic, books on history, neurology, folklore, health all will place your magic and mystic efforts into greater context and offer support in ways that you just will not find from the Occult section of the bookstore alone.

FICTION

Even some people who have a varied diet of non-fiction forgo fiction entirely, seeing it as a distraction or purely recreational pursuit that they simply do not have time for. I find this heartbreaking.

Fiction offers a whole different way of knowing than non-fiction does. It hits the brain in a way that builds empathy and understanding, and aids you in placing all the facts and practical ideas from your non-fiction reading into context. Reading narratives enhances connectivity in the brain, improves social perception and improves ones “Theory of Mind”. If you want to understand why people think and act a certain way, fiction can often be more revealing than strict non-fiction.

Fiction also improves our own ability to tell stories, and can give tools for processing problems and misfortunes that occur to just about everyone. Conflict is after all at the heart of most stories.

DEVELOPING A READING STRATEGY

I don’t just choose the books I want to read, but also a strategy for reading them. My reading has a 40/40/20 split.

40 percent of what I read is  occult/magic/spirituality non-fiction. I just finished the Biography of Ra Lotsawa the famous Tibetan Sorcerer and will be moving on to The Oracle Travels Light by Camelia Elias.

Anther 40 percent is non-fiction that is not from the Occult section. It may tie into my magic, as most things do, but is not from that part of the store. I recently finished Essentialism by Greg McKeown and will be starting Manning Up by Kay Hymowitz or Super Better by Kate McGonigal depending on my mood.

The last 20 percent is fiction. I used to have a 33/33/33 percent split in my reading, but lately my fiction intake has been slower than my non-fiction intake. I finished Armada by Ernest Cline a couple weeks ago but just started The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker a couple days ago.

So tell me…. What are you reading?

Darcy Kuntz
Taylor Ellwood
Craig Williams
Jon Gee

You get to see me mix it up with Frater Ashen Chassan and Rufus Opus on a panel. No idea what it is about yet, but since we all have worked the seven spheres and have very different takes on how tight or loose it should be, it should be a hoot.

As for my talk, I will be speaking on…

PROCCULTISM – Strange Tales and Unsolicited Advice for Professional Magi.

In recent years the western magical tradition has seen an increase in the number of Sorcerer’s, Witches, and Magicians offering their services for hire. Though common in traditions throughout Asia, Africa, and the Diaspora, the idea of a magician making a living as a magician is relatively rare in the western magical traditions. Though divination for hire has been common for a long time, offering ritual work and teaching for a fee has been relatively taboo until now. Even now some balk at the idea as a corrupting influence in the WMT.

In this class Jason Miller, a Professional Sorcerer, Teacher, and Author opens up about the business side of things. He will offer advice to experienced and budding Proccultists, talk about the impact of Proccultism on the Western Magical Tradition, dispel some of the myths and objections to the practice, and share some strange tales from a career in magic.

We Invoked Uphill! Both Ways….

You kids today, getting excited at the latest deluxe edition grimoire bound in goat skin with talismanic slipcase. You know what we got excited about back in MY DAY? Loose papers. Someone handing you a manila folder with loose papers meant that they werew either handing you secret order documents you had no business having, or something photocopied from a university library. Oh yeah… We sat there for HOURS photocopying entire books. You wanna complain about the cost of the latest three hands press book? Try paying 10cents a page for just some scraps about the Greek Magical Papyrii…

You kids today have it so easy.

There were no webpages back then. The OTO was like the goddamn A-Team “if no one else can help, and if you can find them, you can join…” I had to befriend an old man I met in a bookstore that gave me the home phone number of guy that MIGHT still be in the lodge two hours away. So all of a sudden you are making repeated phone calls to a some grizzled occultist you have never met, begging to join his cult – not a call likely to be returned. At least until you make that call 50 times over the next three months and he calls you back just to get rid of you.

We didn’t have social media then either. No Facebook. No Yahoogroups. No MySpace. Not even fucking Friendster. You couldn’t find the other people in the world with the exact same myopic opinions and interests that you have. No groups for just for Celtic Taoists, Thelemic Palo Mayomberas, or people following the Key Of Solomon to the letter. You just had to form a study group, cabal, or coven and put up with whoever showed up. You had Setians participating in Wiccan Circles, Tantrikas going to OTO meetings, Chaos Magicians showing up for Modern Magic practice sessions because that is all there was in your area, and at least it was something.

The tools we used at those Modern Magic sessions were all made by us. There were no high quality Grimoire tools made by actual craftsmen that you could purchase. You had dowel wands with finial tops, and old pewter chalices you painted up from the second hand shop. Your stuff all looked like props for a middle school play – BUT WE LIKED IT THAT WAY!

Don’t even get me started on Planetary Hours! We didn’t have the lunarium! We didnt have APPS! We had a local newspaper, a calculator, and a small headache by the time we figured out the hour of Venus.

You kids today would have never made back in 1989…

Epic Field Report

HAND-LOGO-invert.jpgThis is an operation that lasted, really a full year. This student left a position that was comfortable, but not very secure and did not pay well, for one that was with a larger company and paid better but which was an awful work environment.

Yet, despite all the problems at this new job, divination kept saying this was the thing to do.

She kept at it, and eventually found herself in her dream job. The catch – she would not have been able to land that dream job if she did not have the larger salary and company to negotiate from.

Its chess, not checkers.

Without further ado, here is one of the longest and most well documented field reports I have received.

******************Strategic Sorcery Report************************

Soooo, it was a long, wild ride in terms of employment. It all started back two years ago, when I realized the place I’d been working in was very likely going to close, and not only that, but post-divorce, I needed to generate more income. I started in June of 2013 with a 40-day devotional to Green Tara, using the talisman Jason made. I also attended the Financial Sorcery workshop later on that month, making my request to Jove that I find a better job before my place of employment closed down.

That summer, I did research, reworked my resume, and networked with people. I felt compelled to take an intensive course in NYC for the summer in something that would diversify my resume and also broaden my options considerably in terms of employment and travel. It was something that could also feed into my vision of a job I’d love.

I continued at my original place of employment as usual, and also went to John Myrdhin Reynolds’s (Vajranatha) talk on Sadhana to Lord Ganesha for prosperity. I did the sadhana twice that following weekend for employment with a set of specifications; that Monday, I was called for an interview, and that Wednesday, I was hired.

I thanked Ganesha profusely, but a 3-month period of what can only be described as Mercury Retrograde on steroids ensued. I did uncrossings and cleansings and extra protection and all else, but anything having to do with money and electronic access to it that could fuck up, did. Chatting with SM one night, I pieced together that perhaps Jove had had a hand in assisting me with getting this new job, and thinking it was only Ganesha’s assistance due to the timing, I’d neglected to thank Jove as well.

So, I did thank him, and things went back to normal in the money and electronic access arena.

However, the new job was far less than optimal. While the salary and benefits were spot-on, the job was in a corrupt, highly disorganized environment that was taking a huge toll on the physical and mental health of its employees. I did the sadhana several more times and incorporated the use of peace water, rose quartz, sigils and the like, but only got relief in some aspects of the job.

Things went from bad to worse. Due to huge pressures from larger organizations looking to take over my organization, a lot of scapegoating, deliberate misleading and miscommunication, and the like kept occurring. I got some divinations from Jason which did indicate there would be strife and then transformation, but also kicked into SS mode:

My Sorcery Strategy for a New Job

Goals: To get a new job with at least the same pay and benefits I have now, but healthier, saner, more positive, and stable.

Subgoal: To not get fired first.

2/2 Petitioned Ganesha one final time to either fix this job’s conditions or send me a new one.

2/5: Did the Helios ritual asking for either improvements or a better job, then sent out a request regarding any possibly job leads to multiple friends on Facebook. + Made a sigil of Helios for this.

I put the Jupiterian glyphs for bad luck reversal and job finding on my door. This was a preliminary gesture at this point, as I wanted to launch them after I rebuilt my rapport with Jove.

At this same time, I had a good friend, a career counselor, look over my resume. She made some suggestions, and I tweaked my resume accordingly.

2/10 I then updated multiple online applications.

2/12: Began petitioning Jupiter: Sorry for the oversight (I posted about this earlier in the year), is it ok to use your glyphs and will you help me again?

2/13: With planetary hour, did my devotional to him. Cleaned altar, began writing new contract. I was shown how neglected my general prosperity altar had gotten.

Week leading up to 2/19, I rebuilt my wealth altar, cleaning it and adding Jove symbols, lightning bolts, and pictures of him. Each day, I did the devotional and made offerings of my best whiskey.

During this week, I also messaged all of my CELTA friends (2/15) and asked them about their experiences with teaching overseas, and got some insights from a few, as well as links to reliable organizations.

2/15 Did a 9-hour novena to St. Jude and St. Joseph, “Help me find a new, better job before I get let go. One that pays at least as well as this one, with benefits, retirement plan, but is much saner, pleasant, and stable, where I can stay as long as I need. I will glorify your names.”

2/17 Made a van van bath charged with Iovis Optimus Maximus and Hue. Did macro enchantments for two weeks, researching for jobs overseas and what unemployment can pay for. I also put Ganapati away for a bit. (As per a discussion with Jason.)

2/19 Made contract with Jove, charged bad luck reversal job finding glyphs, connected with tattooed on my aura.

2/20 Got to take the van van bath.

2/23 Felt giddily happy this morning right after imprinting self with bad luck reversal sigil. 

2/25: Began novena to St. Jude asking for help getting out of this bad work situation and into a better work situation before I faced unemployment or dipping into my savings. I asked my Lenormand deck: Am I getting a new job soon? The ship and the little girl fell out of the deck.

2/26 Added “Beating Competition” glyph to resume. The resume also had the  job hunting and steady work glyphs, and oils such as steady work, prosperity, victory, and  High John. Gave the glyphed resumes to two people with strong job leads. Sent the cc’ed email about my work concerns to my boss, as things were ridiculously disorganized and corrupt at this point. (This will actually play into this report in a little bit.)

During this time, also researched what trainings unemployment will pay for, as well as the average salaries in those fields.

On 3/2, I had a very disturbing, unsatisfactory meeting with the powers that be, which I documented and reported to human resources. I kept my cool and did what I had to. I went outside to find that my car had been illegally towed (I finally got my money back after a long, drawn-out battle), and the charge was $160, a Jupiterian number, indeed. I didn’t exactly enjoy the ordeal, but could see some symbolism there. 

3/10: Did some workings to subdue my scary, corrupt boss. She was nicer to me the next day.

3/11: I catnapped and had a dream that my saint altar lit up, and I heard their voices state that they didn’t like what I was doing. I meditated on it later on that night and prayed the novena to each Saint, asking them to please guide me in how they wanted to be prayed to, and that I was sorry to offend. I got that I wasn’t supposed to be doing anything to my boss anymore. (And we shall see why later on.) I got from Saints Jude and Joseph to pray in faith, not fear.

3/12  I sent out the intelligence-seeking glyph for where I should be looking for a job, and also what I should be studying for this next phase of my working life.  I also charged up my new Jupiterian box with Om Gurave Namaha, charging each number on each of the guys’ heads.

I have been chanting “Iovis Optimus Maximus” every morning, charging up my body, then charging up the bad luck reversal symbol and tattooing it on my aura, then charging up steady work, job hunting, and beating competition on my resume.

3/14/15 I went to St. Joseph’s Shrine in Stirling, NJ  and made a request for a new job, leaving a large donation. I also got holy water from the shrine.

3/16 Spent some time with Archangel Michael, asking for his help with succeeding, and also to be protected.

3/19: Did Mars of Jupiter invocation from Advanced Planetary Magick to kick my ass into action in the right direction for success.

3/20: Did the Strategic Sorcery Global Success Rite for a new, better job as well as help with writing my play and having it be successful.

3/22—Got an email from a new place, asking me to come in for an interview. Of special note is the new place is expanding and has Jupiterian blue trim.

3/25: The night before the interview, I did a ritual to the saints and Jove, burning Crown of Success incense.

3/26: Before interview, I bathed in rose soap and wore my Kurukulla pendant. I chanted to Her, and immediately got the sense of, “I am here and who you need! Hi! I’m embracing you.” I had my interview and demonstration of my skills at the new place. The demo had me thinking on my feet a lot, and when my  interviewer brought me into her office, it had two huge vases of roses.  (When I’d prayed to St. Therese, I’d asked to see the roses when my petition was granted. There were actually many such signs and symbols along the way, but I’ve edited this for length.) She told me she’d wanted to consider me for another job as well, since I had so many qualifications. She kept saying, “Your resume spoke to me”. She told me they’d be in contact for a second interview.

4/1: Tyrannical boss suspended and most likely getting fired for an incredibly grievous situation which made the news. I also contacted two previous places of employment for references, which they gave gladly.

4/14/15: Did an offering to Jove prior to the next day’s second round of interviews for the new job. Wore Victory oil, as well as Deb Castellano’s oils for Venus and Gentlemen of Jupiter. Carried Kurukullah pendant in purse, wore necklace and earrings in Jupiterian blue. Auspiciously, the interview was on a Wednesday; did Mercurial call from Planetary Magick.  Did my usual prayers in morning to Saints, chant to Jove and Kurukulla. Extra bonus: I asked Jove to mitigate the traffic to the interview, as it had been very backed up on the dry run. Today, 4/15, it was fine. Chanted in afternoon drive over, and also put on some of Deb’s Charm incense on hands, as she instructed, chanting to Kurukulla all the while. The three interviewers drilled me for an hour and a half, providing scenarios.

I got one of Jason’s black gator mojo bags. I figured it was an important thing to have on hand anyway. It arrived in the mail along with a letter affirming my student loans are now paid off and I am debt-free.

I kept waiting to hear back from the new job, and things continued in their downwards spiral at the former job. I kept doing rituals to Jove on Thursday night and also added in a subsequent one to Juno after we did that global rite back in May.

Finally, I put the glyphs for Sweetening, Bad Luck Reversal, and Beating Competition in a bowl with dirt from the prospective new place, and placed my gator claw on it, feeding her with some whiskey.

I did get the job. J I also got a couple of more gigs for this summer which gave me a nice amount of income.

Bonus: After no small amount of persistence on my part and petitioning the black gator claw, I finally got back my money from the illegal tow.

So thanks go out to:

Helios, Jove, Juno,  Saint Joseph, Saint Jude, Archangel Michael, Kurukulla, Saint Therese, Saint Christopher, Saint Anthony, Saint Peter, and Saint Rita, all of whom helped me with different aspects of this very trying time. And thank you, gator claw, as well.

Jason was extremely helpful, understanding, and supportive throughout all of this, as both a teacher and a friend. Thanks again for that.

The Delicate Balance Between Self Acceptance and Drive for Change.

11714486_124266054576565_937831256_n (1)**** This originally was for my Strategic Sorcery Student Group, but at their prompting I am posting it here for a wider audience.***

I have been exercising a lot more this summer than I ever have. Apart from the uphill hikes, I have been swimming, doing some light weights at home, etc. I have also been eating more vegetables and taking Athletic Greens supplement in the morning.

This has all made a HUGE difference in my energy levels, focus, and attitude. BUT….

I have actually gained 2 pounds since the beginning of summer.

This is not surprising. Some of it might be muscle weight, but lets be real here… The problem with Vermont is that it has all this beauty and outdoor activity BUT it also has some of the freshest and best food you have ever eaten.

You get back from a four hour hike up a mountain and someone is practically there at the bottom saying “Congratulations on your hike! Would you like some, unpasteurized blue cheese? 94 month aged cheddar? Duck egg omelet? Fancy Maple Syrup collected only in the first week of the season? Maybe wash it down with some home-made Sarsaparilla?”

Yes, yes I would.

I am all set to get back on my better eating habits after Labor Day. The reason I am writing this here Strategerati is to show that sometimes results do not always look like what you think they will. I am stronger, healthier, and feeling better than I have in years. Much more then when I would diet at home. Getting the diet component down is easier for me than the excercise component, so this has been a huge breakthrough for me. The weight loss is actually secondary (but still important) goal.

The other, more important reason I am writing this is to show the blend of self-acceptance yet desire for change that I think people should cultivate.

People seem to fall into extremes very easily about a lot of things, but keeping with the example of being overweight people tend to fall into error on two sides:

The first is feeling ashamed, needing to hide or cover up, never feeling attractive as they are.

The second is feeling that there is nothing at all wrong with their body or health and that they are fine as they are.

Both of these are, IMHO, wrong.

I think its healthy to cultivate a combination of feeling good about who you are and where you are at, while at the same time desiring to improve your situation.

I feel attractive as I am, I have no problem taking off my shirt at the beach, yet I the reality is that there are a host of health problems connected with being overweight. As one friend said to me “Jason, there are a lot of old guys, and there are a lot of fat guys, there are not a lot of old fat guys…”

I know that this is even more an issue for women, and I hope more will take a cue from people like Loey Lane who looks fucking great in a bikini. She would look great in a bikini if she was heavier still.

The point I am trying to articulate is this:

1. Pride and acceptance of who you are at this moment, should not come at the expense of a drive to better yourself.

2. The impetus to create a better you should not come at the expense of pride and acceptance of who you are right now.

It all comes back to trajectory. There is no stasis.

IN MONEY – As long as you are taking steps to handle your shit, you should feel good about where you are at, but still be working towards improving your situation.

IN LOVE – You should feel ok about being alone, married, single or whatever, but that does not mean you should not be working towards whatever your ideal situation is.

IN SPIRITUALITY – You should feel good about what you have accomplished and the clarity you possess, even though you are not a Buddha or Christ or Merlin. But you should always be moving towards something.

DELIVERENCE – by Khi Armand

I am strapping on my platform shoes with the goldfish in them because for the rest of this week I am going to be pimping other peoples stuff. First up is….

DELIVERANCE by Khi Armand

One of the things I have said, that then gets taken out of context and spread like wildfire, is that emergency magic is bad magic. The bulk of my work has been about living strategically and employing magic to build a life where most emergencies are minimized or easily handled. That said, emergencies do happen, even to me. When they do it can feel as if the world is set against you: loved ones turn their backs, your freedom threatened, even your own body betraying you with disease and damage. At these times we often throw our hands in the air and ask for deliverance, which is what Khi Armand has given us the tools for in his new book.

Much like short hoodoo pamphlets of the 70’s and 80’s and before this book is chock full of spells for sticky situations. Unlike many of those books, Khi manages to work in necessary history for context, pithy training in the essentials of magic, and spells that attack the same problems from multiple angles – which you know I love.

For example if faced with a court case, this book has spells to confuse your opposing attorney, shut up key opponents, and sweeten the court in your favor – all at the same time. Perfect Strategic Sorcery approach.

The spells are simple enough to be worked by non-magicians, perhaps people who have no place left to turn except their first spell. They are also deep enough to by enjoyed and employed by experienced mages. The act of baptizing a link, or unlocking the occult potential of a root, and of naming and declaring how it all works together is something quite cosmic. Rather than making offerings to a spirit to do the work for you, these spells have you flexing your own magic muscles, because you are a spirit as well.

It is fitting that this book be published by a church, what better place to grant this amazing tool for intercession?

Deliverance Delivered.

Grab your copy of the book.

Then head over to Conjure in the City and see the rest of what Khi Armand has to offer.

Meditating My Way Up A Mountain

11162507_10205701380148619_8388172470422945308_n

“Been a couple weeks since I did this.”

AH. rest in presence of awareness.

“Wow, hard on the thighs”

AH

“I was just sick for a week, maybe this is too much for today. Maybe better to swim today.”

AH – you pussy.

AH

“Hi! how are you? Yes it’s a perfect day for a hike”

AH – external distractions are not different from internal distractions. Return to presence of awareness

Have a good one”. 

AH-

“Man – My ankles are starting to hurt” 

Ah – release from distraction…

“Nope…they really hurt, can’t just release myself from this distraction” 

Focus on the pain itself as the meditation – where precisely is it? 

“Back Right side of right ankle” 

“Can I find the specific point or muscle? Yes, nope, its gone” 

“Pain is back” 

“Make the stickiness of the pain itself the focus of meditation” 

“AH” 

few moments of clear presence…

“Weird its gone now. Is it just that I walked it out or did focusing on the tenacity of the pain itself dissipate it?” Doesn’t matter does it?

Focus Jason “AH”

Oooh maybe I should switch to Semzin of White AH rather than just using it to cut distraction…

Visualize White floating three feet in front of me…

 No switching meditations mid-way! What is this armature hour? 

AH

“Getting tired”

AH

“Jesus Christ, am I there yet? Maybe I will turn around and call it a day.”  

“Jason*, look up. Do you see much more above you? No, ok then you are up and almost around. You have done this climb a dozen times.”

“Look, up ahead is the pine line**. You are nearly there.”

AH.

presence of awareness

“Its mostly level from here on in. You made it.” 

Grin

“OK Jason, its great to feel joy, but strip it of its cause and just find the presence of awareness”

AH

Look…. there’s the rock!

Ah

OK.  Make offering to the Yul-lha and go sit on the overlook. Make offerings to four Kings and the  Garndharvas, Yakshas, Nagas, and Kunbandhas.

Eat Sandwich.

Yum.
