Are Spirits Real or Imaginary? Old Argument Rears Up Once More

Recently in an online discussion group, an individual professed to the group that gods and spirits do not exist thus why he could not work the old grimoires as stated in their instructions. Now this is his belief and you may wonder why ol’ Moloch here got his dander up over this, right? Well these online groups have a tendency to attract a LOT of folks who are new to occultism, sorcery & magic as well as many who are fence sitters where such things are often argued and hashed out. I’d like to take a moment and give some rational explanations as to why I feel anyone who makes a full fledged statement to the negative on this subject is not an occultist but rather someone dressing up and just pretending to be one.

Leprechauns Don’t Exist!

The chap’s argument stemmed around his “fact” that Leprechauns do not actually exist. Really? According to whom? By what authority? Oh I’m not talking about the little thieving miscreants we know and love from Irish folklore who wear green attire, hoard gold and hide their stash at the end of rainbows. Of course those are just caricatures of our imaginations of what the Leprechauns looked like. However in every myth, every bit of folklore there are kernels of truth IF you’re not to bloody lazy to get off your fat duffs and dig for these kernels.

Rather I’m talking about ancient Irish warrior spirits whose job it was to guard clan & community treasuries. These spirits are ancestral spirits of the dead. Some may even refer to Them as the Mighty Dead as a number of them were magical practitioners when alive. They leaned on canes as they grew in age which came to be known as their shillelagh. Also the reason the shamrock was sacred to Them was due to it was used in Their magic when alive. However there is a lot of misconceptions about these spirits due to the wild tales told by drunks and folks who passed on the tales of these spirits to the point Their exploits became near godlike.

The issue modern practitioners have about spirits is plenty but the main one is they buy into this modern fable of scientism and it’s bastard child Psychology which tells us spirits are nothing more than “archetypes”, “psychosis”, “complexes”, “beliefs” all part of our “collective unconscious”. These psycho-babble terms are 60+ y/o terms Psycho-quacks came up with in an attempt to explain the unexplainable because as we all know when Psychologists cannot figure out something, they invent a label for it then pin it on you. These labels are a kinder way of trying to inform you that such experiences are only in your head aka ‘figments of your own imagination’. In other words, you’re bloomin’ nuts, amigo.

So what does modern psychology do? Refer you to a psychiatrist, the even wackier version of a psychologist who has a MD degree and can dispense mind altering drugs such as Paxil, Prozac, Effexor or Zoloft to manage your obvious bi-polar disorder. Why? Well rational people DON’T talk to spirits, mate! Well what about Jesus, Yahweh, Allah, Buddha and so forth? Typically those spirits don’t talk back and give useful answers to Joe & Mary Sixpack. This is what modern science thinks about your spiritual beliefs and personal experiences with these denizens. So is it any wonder a goodly number of you are only interested in just “Ritual Drama” a.k.a. Live Action Role Playing for occultists for your so-called magicK? You’re too afraid to give real spirit contact a try because you fear you may be successful then you’ll have not only zero excuses you’ll also have spirits talking back to you and that terrifies you. Admit it.

Spirits DO Exist & Here’s Why...

What you and your non-believing brethren fail to understand is that the universe is a whole helluva lot bigger than the sum of your head. Yes you have a universe inside your noggin, certainly but that’s just micro-cosmic and it’s all about help YOU, Slim, not about fixing aunt Jenine's broken leg or cousin Buck’s impending prison sentence which you know is fixed by bloody criminal in the so-called justice system. Yet you believe you can waltz around inside your noggin either working pathways like ceremonial magicKians are wont to do or meditate it away like new agers typically try and do. However as many of you know who have tried these methods (like I have way back when) they don’t do jack squat for anyone else.

What I find humorous is that scientists tell us that our own galaxy is a vast 100,000 by 150,000 light years big which means to traverse our galaxy alone, we’d have to travel at the speed of light in a year’s time for 100,000 years to make it across one way alone. Then add another 50,000 years of travel to that time to make it across the other way. Hello, McFly anyone home? That is vast and we just live in a small part of our galaxy out near the edge of it. Then we’re told our (macro) universe is even more immense because its age is reputed to be well over 14,000,000,000 years old and though recently another group of scientists came out saying they believe the universe always was and it has no beginning and far to its size they believe its never ending.

Mind boggling? Definitely. Yet you think we are all that’s out there? Our bits of carbon. Such hubris and arrogance. Every time a so-called educated individual comes out with such a proclamation, it’s not long that later we discover to find how wrong they were. Look at all of the learned men over the ages who made idiotic proclamations in the name of education and science that we later learned was flat out WRONG such as the earth was flat, the sun circled the earth, different weights fall at different speeds and other dubious claims that have been proven wrpmg with careful experimentation. Remember they also believed believed steel was too heavy to float on water to ever be useful to build a ship from unitl it was done in the Civil War. Then later it was a scientist who stated that driving faster than 35 mph would be impossible because we’d not be able to breathe. Or what about the dubious idiots of science who emphatically stated we could not ever fly because we are too heavy and don’t have wings. Or (my favorite) the geniuses who argued tooth and nail that it was impossible to send a man out into space. Not only did we do that but we also sent numerous missions to the moon and brought them back to tell their exploits.

My point is that learned people with doctorates make idiotic claims all the fucking time. Just because you have a Ph.D does not mean you’re wiser than anyone else it means you are typically smarter in a select area of study for which you received recognition by your peers. That’s it. Even with that, look at how many people get degrees and are literal incompetents and morons in their own fields of study! Degrees are the results of test taking and some of these folks are just good at taking tests. It does not mean they’re better at doing their taxes, putting together Ikea furniture or rebuilding a Mitsubishi fuel injection system, all right?

No I’m not against education. Not in the least. Rather I’m leery of everyone who claims they’ve got a degree, even physicians. Why? Because there’s a LOT of quacks out there practicing medicine who should NOT be practicing! We used to laugh at Frank Burns on MASH yet that sort of physician exists and if you know of one, you should stay away and steer all of your loved ones away from such a quack. Today psychologists don’t refer to themselves as “Psychologist” but rather “Therapist” which is a generic term that is often not as scary for the old head shrink. So before you open up about your spirit experiences to others, beware just WHO you’re going to blab your experiences to, amigo.

Spirit Do You Hear Me?

One of the reasons I and many others get results in sorcery and primarily spirit work is that we use a formula that is both time tested and it works. First off we don’t buy into this bullshit that spirits only exist in our minds. Because when you take that approach, you have a tendency to be an asshole, a dictator, a my way or the highway sort of jerk. This is the premise the grimoires were written upon though I highly doubt the author’s knew squat about psychology rather they were trying to bully the spirit into submission through screaming holy names of Yahweh at it all because those dimwits mistakenly believed Yahweh created the universe. Why would they believe that if it weren’t ture? LoL Well chalk that up to a well done marketing strategy by Jews and those who were so enamored of the Hebrew Qabala. They didn’t realize the trappings of the Hebrew QBL such as the names, the Tree of Life glyph, the manuals like Zohar, the mythology such as Solomon’s temple being built by demons or Solomon and his entourage flying through the air on his magic carpet, and other mythological rigmarole just enthralls them. I know because it caught me up in its illusion as well for a decade.

We’ve already seen that the universe is vast. We also have no clue what all is out there either since all our astronomers can see is just a tiny portion of the universe. The key is when you make sincere effort and call to a spirit, something will respond to the name you used to summon It with. Did you get that? If not re-read that last sentence once again. It does not matter if It is THE real YHVH, Zeus, Obatala, Thor, Quetzalcoatl, Wolf or whomever, it’s that SOMETHING out there WILL respond when you are sincere, use courtesy and respect in calling. Now the big issue with academics who don’t believe like the self-proclaimed Luciferian genius from the on-line group kvetching about gods, spirits and Leprechauns, is that guys like him are too flaky and chicken to really give this a chance. Why? Because he’s an egotistical prick.

Think about it. Most academics are egotistical and this is one reason why so many incorrect assumptions and proclamations are publicly put forth then later retracted. Categorically speaking a wise academic withholds judgment until the evidence shows up however what I run into are the ones who refuse to even TRY summoning a spirit. In fact, if they try to summon a spirit typically it goes something like this: the academic stands in the well made circle, reads the general invocation for the spirit to appear and if the academic cannot see anything in a few moments, s/he deems the operation a useless waste of time and the whole thing is utter rubbish. They then go about claiming the medieval magicians ingested some form of hallucinogen whereby they spoke to a figment of their own imagination. That’s the extent of their “scientific experimentation” and they move on back to their harping that Crowley was right spirits are just aspects of one’s mind while continuing to wear their skeptic’s hat.

Tell Me About You

So when someone tries to force you to do something, especially with a negative bent to their voice or malicious attitude, how cooperative are you towards them? Be realistic here. Not talking about judges mind you since when we’re all in front of those guys it’s the only situation where I think any of us have to listen to their BS and put up with it OR else. But say anyone else? If someone were to call you out of the blue and insist, nay demand you come to an address you’ve never been to before, without reason or motive, just how willing would you be to jump to their orders and get right on it? Be honest here. So if not you then WHY should any spirit? Who the fuck are you to Them? You’re not Their master regardless of what the grimoires claim - that’s all hyperbole for your confidence. You can’t threaten the spirit or let’s say carry out any threat to It.

More Flies With Honey...

I got this idea after a failed summoning operation and I was in dire need. So I began to study the African traditions. Not to rob them of their beliefs or culturally pilfer anything from them mind you but actually LEARN something useful and I did. One thing I did learn from reading books about them, interviewing practitioners both online and in person was that they never tried to force their spirits to do anything. Instead they ‘asked’ more often humbly I might add, and offered courtesy and respect to their spirits. That alone was worth more than gold. So I figured if it worked for their spirits why wouldn’t it work for grimoire spirits, my ancestors and even so-called angels/demons I had tried to work with?

One of the other things I learned from the African religions was they tended to use offerings a lot. Of course I had heard many of them sacrificed chickens, goats, lambs, bulls & so on but as I talked to actual practitioners I discovered that this was not an everyday thing but often for either community ceremonies OR for severe even dire circumstances where a person’s health may be in jeopardy. For their usual work though most of them tended to use liquor - a LOT! Originally I thought the lot of them just a bunch of alcoholics until I found out none of them drank the booze they offered their spirits except to sip it out of respect to show the spirits it wasn’t poisoned. Then a Santera suggested I choose a single spirit to work with, even a pagan deity or hero would be fine, research the spirit, find out where in the world it was from and try to give the spirit as many of Its culture’s foods and cuisines as I could or as close approximations as possible. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, coinage & money, wines & liquors, photos and pictures of the land It was hailed from and even artistic drawings of the spirit Itself. All of these could be given, over time, one at a time, which should please the spirit and help It bond more closely.

The World Opens Up

I began to shed my original hypothesis that spirits were just in my head and started to meditate, pray to and open my mind to the spirit’s influence. Then things began to really take off! It didn’t matter to me whether or not the spirit actually existed at one time but that I managed to tap into Its current to the point I attracted Its attention enough It began to work with me. Once I had that spirit I asked It for help with things like divination then It sent me another spirit who taught me how to interpret the Tarot better.

So to end this long diatribe on spirits, the fact is the universe is vast and there are things out there we do not understand nor even know about. Some we may never know about. However does it matter that to experiment all it takes it to toss aside your intellectual side of your mind for a bit and allow your primitive aspects of your brain to reach out to make contact with something that may be primal, ancient, hidden and approachable? Some are beginning to do this today. You just need to drop the Psychological garbage and allow your fears to step in once again. Let the bogeyman become real once more. Well if He’s real, then so are Those who can kick His ass so you just need to set yourself up with Them. But if you persist and cling to a purely intellectual focus with spirits and sorcery then all you are doing is a form of role playing at best. It’s not real magic in the sense you can’t get jack squat done for anyone else other than fix something inside your own head. That’s the extent of it. So LARP all you want kiddies but you’re just pretending regardless of what you say.

How To Gain Real Occult Power: A Slow & Certain Method That Works

Do you ascribe to power? Occult power that will help you break through barriers that impede your regular daily progress and stop you from gaining what it is you desire most in life? If you do I have a plan for you and it works. I know because I’ve lived it... and am still living it!

Life or Reality = Destiny or Fate, Chance or Luck, Free Will

There are a lot of folks out there who have all sorts of ideas about what constitutes reality but the best I’ve come up with is the above phrase which is Reality is comprised of equal parts of Fate (or Destiny), Chance (or Luck) and Free Will. How this works is you may be destined for something but luck gives you so many random choices from which to choose from and ultimately it is your free will that makes the final choice. So to put this into practice let’s say when you incarnated into this life, you are destined to marry. Luck or chances sends X number of potential suitors for you to choose from and ultimately you will choose one of them to be your mate.

That is how life works. It’s very simple actually and so long as you always bear this in mind you will not fall into a trap of believing your life is crap because of the gods, fate or some outside force nor should you blame bad luck or just yourself. Sometimes it’s a combination of many things that cause bad luck. However when you understand how this process works, you feel much better about yourself and what all you can get and enjoy.

Plus Or Minus Factor

The key to happiness in life is learning to understand that we cannot always have things the way we want them to be and to accept them when they're close but somewhat off from our ideal desire. That is the toughest nut to crack and by nut make that our own minds because your own mind can be the most stubborn and obstinate creation on the planet. It will often cause you much misery, sorrow and pain all because you allow yourself to be fooled into thinking things have to be a certain way (or you have to be with a certain someone) or else you cannot be happy.

Ever heard the phrase, “Plus or minus X” where X is a given slush factor often used in science, business, agriculture, and so on? If not you’ve been living in a cave or not reading all that much because it is a very common phrase and it means you’re expecting a given result plus or minus a few degrees, dollars, inches, and etc. It’s a slush factor to allow for variables that sometimes cannot be controlled by you or even the universe itself.

It’s like shooting an arrow at a bulls eye on a target but just slightly missing the mark by a few millimeters. You may say, “Well tough luck chum, you didn’t hit the mark!” Really? In an archery competition perhaps but if that was a charging lion’s eye you were aiming at, you would’ve taken him down. Do you see what I mean? Because much in life depends on perspective and context as well.

“But I Want X not Y!”

My late grandma's famous reply to the above was, "Yeah? Well people in Hell want ice water but can't have it so they learn to deal with it!" May sound harsh but she had a valid point worth exploring. Why? Because the above phrase is the famous last words of the truly miserable. Got that? MISERABLE! So let me ask: are you miserable? If so then you need to wake up and realize the universe owes you NOTHING regardless of how hard your life is. My late grandpa told me that regardless of how tough you think it is, things can always get worse so count your blessings. He said he met Jews who spent time in concentration camps during WW2 who clung to that slim belief they were going to make it through the horror they were subjected to. Why? Because it was all they had. Odd how people back then had such firm conviction yet today rare are the ones who have any faith to recognize the bountiful blessings they have already been given or the fact that things could always be worse.

It’s like that time when you were a kid and wanted that hot new  toy for Yule that cost a small fortune so your parents improvised and got you something similar and you felt let down because you wanted the original instead of the knock-off toy. I think all of us have felt that sort of disappointment at one time or another growing up - well those of us whose parents weren’t well off financially. Now that we’re adults, for some strange reason, we've held fast to that same belief that we need X not Y in our life. Tell me why is it you think you need a Porsche when a Datsun or Dodge can get you to the same places as the Porsche will - just less expensive on your budget?

What Do We Ultimately Desire?

So ask yourself is it really a new Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini that you want or is it the idea of “an exotic sports that goes fast and everyone notices it”? In all of that isn’t it the desire to be noticed by everyone really what you’re after in the end? Isn’t that the emotion you’re trying to fulfill? Because as a retired sales rep, let me tell you that is exactly what the Porsche dealer is going to sell you: the emotion of owning a Porsche. Now ask yourself would say a custom built car that’s hot rodded and pretty to look at fulfill that emotional need to stand out in the crowd? One that's both fast and has an awesome paint job? I;'ve know a lot of guys who enjoyed a car like that and had the time to enjoy it rather than the guy who works 60+ hours a week paying for the exotic imported sports car that he's up to his neck in hock for!

Emotional fulfillment is what we are constantly seeking. Remember that. You are never after Debbie Darling the big titted blonde at the corner diner who was your high school cheerleader captain and prom queen, rather you want what Debbie offers: emotional fulfillment. Now is Debbie Darling the only woman who can ever give you that emotional fulfillment? Of course not. If you believe otherwise, then you need professional therapy because you’re only fooling yourself into being yet more MISERABLE since you know you can never have her, okay? So what you need to do is sit down and analyze what it is about Debbie Darling that really turns you on. Is it just her appearance? Is it her bubbly personality? Her smile? The way she speaks? How she dresses? What exactly? You need to hone in on this, Homer, if you want to be happy because I’m about to show you how to get your own Debbie Darling.

Debbie Does It All For Me

Let’s say you’ve taken time to analyze why you have the hots for Debbie. For our example let’s pretend you have this thing about Debbie because you adore her eyes, smile, legs and buttocks and while it's not a high priority on your list, her chest is nice as well. Now you need to remind yourself of the Plus or Minus slush factor and remember that even if you asked Debbie out and she politely rebuffed your offer, all is not lost. You can find another Debbie clone. They exist out there. You may have added you want her to be a virgin because you’re raised in some some family or culture that values virginity well again this is where the old Plus or Minus is going to matter. You cannot add what may no longer there. Either be happy with what you are given or take the path of misery it is ultimately your choice.

The occult can help you to find a similar Debbie when you employ it and use patience. How? In effect you are influence Chance or Luck to increase the number of potential Debbie clones as possible. Of course your desire will include that one of these clones fall for you so you get what it is you truly desire the love of a beautiful woman - well a woman you find beautiful. Because that is what matters to you isn't it?

No! I need the real Debbie Darling! No you do not! Listen to yourself. That’s obsessive talk and something that stalkers tell themselves! Look, there are 7 BILLION people on this planet with 60% of them women which makes for a large number of them in your age range from all walks of life and so on. If you want happiness, you’ll look for your own Debbie and not obsess over Debbie Darling and allow her to have her own destiny without your interference. If you really love Debbie Darling, then let her go and you go find her twin - she’s out there. However, if you prefer to be MISERABLE then certainly pursue Debbie Darling like the moron you are because you know you have a snowball's chance in Hell.

Improve Yourself

Before I give you my formula for occult power, you need to think about how you are going to improve yourself. Lose weight? Change eating habits? Exercise? Better sleep? Improve your vocabulary? Read more often? Read better material? Be nicer to others? Walk more often? What exactly do you plan on doing? You should choose something to help improve yourself. Something. Even if you already believe what you’re doing now is everything right, you can still find something to improve upon. We all can.

Improving ourselves is well worthwhile in many ways because by doing so it helps to increase our own self-esteem which others will pick up on. Others like it when you shine and are happiest. They don’t like to be around you when you’re down, out and feeling sorry for yourself.

Moloch's Daily Regimen

Here you go, this is my daily occult regimen which I use to tune myself (so to speak) and I will break it all down so you understand what I do, how I do it and why. It may seem elementary and simple yet it is not so easy to grasp and adhere to. It takes discipline and once you begin this regimen, over a three week period, you will begin to see a marked difference in your life.

1. Power Charging Ritual - whatever you like to use. I use the Middle Pillar or actually a modified version where the names are altered and pronounced differently than mainstream. I have tried other charging methods in the past. Most of these methods work and I have a couple of favorites I like. I sometimes alternate them by doing the Middle Pillar when I wake up and before retiring to bed and doing a different charging technique during the day or prior to ritual. Just to make things interesting.

2. Confession - even though I'm not confessing to YHVH since I do not believe He is the ruler of the universe, I confess to the Ancestors. I get off my chest all that is bothering me from the day and anything that has gotten me upset. This includes obsessing thoughts, anger issues, fears, anything that may be a phobia or niggling doubt, worries and so forth. You need to move these into the open so the ancestors can help you deal with them. Further confession is not only therapeutic, it also seems to have an effect on my magical practices so it should yours as well. This means you should see a marked improvement in the results of your rituals, spells and procedures.

3. Greet My Guardian Angel - right out of Jean Kent's Book of Prayer. This is to give respect and courtesy to the spirit who watches over me by day and night to ensure I do not fall prey to my own devices. I do not know my Guardian angel’s name because I have not gone through the Abramelin rite however I still thank Him for His service and protective eye. Courtesy and respect go a long way with this spirit.

4. Greet My Nativity Angel - here I summon my Nativity Angel asking It to gather up Its force and power to aid me in my day and to alert me to any opportunities I may miss as well as help me make better decisions. Now to do this you will need to find out who your Nativity angel is and that means either you must perform a Nativity divination with medieval astrological methods which will help you discern the name of your angel OR you can hire someone to do this for you. The directions are in Agrippa’s Three Books of Occult Philosophy. Once you have it though, you have a terrific source of power at your disposal!

5. Prayer for the Day & Mystical Day of the Week - right out of Jean Kent's book. If you do not have Jean’s books, you’ll have to obtain them and he offers them on for sale. These prayers are meant to help you tune yourself to the day and they're not simple as some of them require reciting the Qabalistic Cross in the middle of saying the daily prayer. What I end up doing is asking the spirits who rule the day to help me in some manner that is in accord with Their nature. This may sound complicated but it is not all that difficult. I also at the end of each of these prayers throw out my main prayer request so if I want a Debbie clone, then here is where I will also put that out. I won’t use photos but I may use detailed physical descriptions and explain what I want in her personality so the spirits will know what it is I want specifically.

6. Prayer to the Ancestors - usually a simple prayer to acknowledge the ancestors and any particular ancestor I may be working with at the time on some project. If I have any prayer requests for myself, clients, my loved ones and etc, here is where I will put them in. This is my main focus of the day and everything else leads up to this. If I want something special say my own Debbie Darling clone, here is where I will ask the ancestors and describe to Them what she is to look like, age range, ethnicity, distance from me, and so on.

Now to make this work I will repeat this request daily until my request is fulfilled. Repetition gets fulfilled or “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” as the old saw goes and it is true in the spirit world - ask any experienced Houngan, Palero or Santero if this is not the case. The rabbi Jesus the Christ said, “Ask, and it shall be given unto you;” Matthew 7:7 and this is a spiritual truism that can be found worldwide in many cultures. The problem is most people never ask and those that ask, only ask once and give up.

Power is never gained by merely trying and giving up. You must wrest it by force and will. To do this you have to decide what it is you want then go after it until it is yours. Do you understand? Ask! Insist! Demand! There is nothing wrong with this. If you’re following a path and a plan, what is wrong with insisting you get what you desire? Demand it. You deserve it, do you not? Just remember you may not get exactly what you want so don’t be a child at Yule crying about it. Missing the mark by a fraction is not that bad. Second place is far better than third or 20th you know?

And about your Plus or Minus Debbie clone, let me ask you, if you found a woman who fit your Debbie ideal but she was a brunette or redhead, even though she liked you, would that be a deal breaker for you? For many guys it certainly would be! They’re ignorant fools who enjoy being miserable but you? Does that bother you? It shouldn’t. It wouldn’t me if such were my goal. Or someone offered me a suped up, customized Datsun that garners attention for a lot less than a new Porsche, I certainly would take the Datsun instead of mortgaging my life for an exotic imported super car I tell you that much!


Trust me this method works. You need to use it faithfully each day at the same time or thereabouts and be sincere with your prayer to the spirits. Do not be haughty, arrogant or stubborn. The best approach is with an open heart while in a state of grace. Never approach the spirits while in a state of anger as they will amplify what bothering you.

I hope this helps some of you to enjoy a much better and healthier life. Realize if your life is pure crap do not expect miracles overnight and stick with the plan until you see results. Be firm. Be insistent. Be steadfast. Demand what you want but always be respectful and courteous. Go in light and enjoy your life.

Subject to Interpretation? You Be the Judge

In an online occult forum, someone asked whether spirits in the Goetia were considered to be speaking literal or figuratively especially where their powers were concerned. I have my own thoughts on this subject and decided it was time I spoke up and gave my nickel’s worth instead of just letting everyone else say their piece while I was quiet.

Example: Asmodeus/Asmoday

“The Thirty-second Spirit is Asmoday, or Asmodai. He is a Great King, Strong, and Powerful. He appeareth with Three Heads, whereof the first is like a Bull, the second like a Man, and the third like a Ram; he hath also the tail of a Serpent, and from his mouth issue Flames of Fire. His Feet are webbed like those of a Goose. He sitteth upon an Infernal Dragon, and beareth in his hand a Lance with a Banner. He is first and choicest under the Power of AMAYMON, he goeth before all other. When the Exorcist hath a mind to call him, let it be abroad, and let him stand on his feet all the time of action, with his Cap or Headdress off; for if it be on, AMAYMON will deceive him and call all his actions to be bewrayed. But as soon as the Exorcist seeth Asmoday in the shape aforesaid, he shall call him by his Name, saying: “Art thou Asmoday?” and he will not deny it, and by-and-by he will bow down unto the ground. He giveth the Ring of Virtues; he teacheth the Arts of Arithmetic, Astronomy, Geometry, and all handicrafts absolutely. He giveth true and full answers unto thy demands. He maketh one Invincible. He showeth the place where Treasures lie, and guardeth it. He, amongst the Legions of AMAYMON governeth 72 Legions of Spirits Inferior. His Seal is this which thou must wear as a Lamen upon thy breast, etc.”

Dealing With Asmoday

First realize that Asmodeus, Asmodai or Asmoday has a couple of other names not found in the Goetia. Chammadai or Sydonai are other names for Asmoday. I’ve even seen His name spelled Chasmadai or Chasmodai before. While I have not summoned the spirit using these names I am willing to bet He would submit to Them as well.

Thus far we know Asmoday is first under Amaymon, who is a ruler of the East. We also see that it is not a good idea to wear any sort of head covering and always standing while summoning this spirit lest Amaymon deceive the karcist (re: summoner). Notice too that it states when you have mind to summon him, “let it be abroad” which implies this is not a spirit to summon into your home or on your property as you should be abroad or not home. However IF you do as the grimoire suggests, it seems Asmoday will bow down to the ground before you especially if you ask Him if He is Asmoday.

What You Can Get From Asmoday? Plenty!

This spirit is loaded for bear as they say and He offers the Karcist a lot for the effort and time. Here is what the book says you get:

1) He gives the Ring of Virtues - this is rather an unknown I’m sorry to say. I neglected to ask this spirit about this when I summoned Him the first couple of times. I was on a quest for something else and didn’t bother to ask about any ring of virtues. In Wier’s “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum”, this ring is referred to as the “Ring of Venues”. Colin de Plancy states that Asmoday “gives rings influenced by astronomical bodies”. Thus most likely this has more to do with Asmoday teaching you how to make rings according to medieval astrology wherein the virtue & power of a planetary body or fixed star can be coalesced into a stone then set into a ring. This makes far more sense because as we will see, Asmoday is a teacher.

2) He teaches the Arts of Arithmetic, Astronomy, Geometry - He is fond of teaching the sciences. While I cannot state my mathematical skills are exemplary, they are far better than when I was in college struggling to make it. His version of teaching seems to be as you study the material seems to come to you easier and easier. My understanding of earth sciences has truly grown under this spirit’s tutelage. This is ideal for anyone who wishes to amp up their science knowledge.

3) He teaches all handicrafts absolutely - handicraft is a term first used in 1523 according to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary the definition for this archaic term are:

1a: manual skill; b: an occupation requiring skill with the hands;
2: the articles fashioned by those engaged in handicraft

thus the idea is any skill where you work with your hands from basket weaving to sewing to brick laying to welding because they’re all ones where you work with your hands. Thus the idea of handy-crafts.

4) He gives true and full answers to thy demands - “Ask me a question, any question!” like the old mentalists used to shout to audiences. Here the spirit is saying He will be honest and give full answers to your questions.

5) He makes one Invincible - this one has vexed many practitioners for quite some time. Some seem to think this is a misprint and instead of invincible the scribe really meant ‘invisible’ but I tend to think Asmoday can make you invincible though not bulletproof. There are many ways of viewing invincibility such as an icon or martyr who died for a cause and whose memory lives on. Is he speaking purely of physical invincibility? Or figuratively? I tend to think it’s more in the magical combat arena. The spirit will help you overcome things that hold you back, educate you and even help you with magical rings so why not confer magical invincibility? With the idea being you can weather the onslaught of some mean practitioner’s spells or curses slung at you with the help of Asmoday’s invincibility.

6) He shows the place where treasures lie and what guards it - sometimes the dead guard the treasure they hoarded and died with. Once you know what guards a treasure and what the treasure is, then you can determine if the treasure is worth your time to procure via magic spells to shoo off the guardian spirit. Another meaning for treasures are the ones that lie deep within each of us. Those untapped powers, talents and abilities we all have that we do nothing to uncover until someone like Asmoday comes along and says, “Hey look what you can do here!” Knowing skills and talents can seriously amp up your financial standing in the business community. I mean perhaps you have a penchant for foreign languages? Why not tap into that and use into help you make some money? Or maybe you have a talent for other things that the spirit can help you uncover?

You get the idea yet? Things are not always cut and dried with spirits let alone the scribe who cobbled together the 72 names and seals to become the most popular grimoire of all time, the Goetia. With the 72 listed, we have to go hunting for Them in other places in medieval history to find more about Them such as alternate names, alternate seals and even clarification on things the spirit offers or can do for the karcist.

In Summary

Spirits can do many things both inside as well as outside of us. They can work on our psyches to calm fear and emotions or stir up our courage make us invincible or show us talents we may possess or where we can find a hidden money stash. Honestly don’t try the latter unless you live in a place like Louisiana where people buried their money in the past especially pirates who would hide out there in the bayous. What’s the point of treasure hunting if there’s no hidden/buried treasure in your neighborhood?

Be open minded about interpretation as to what grimoires state. Gods for the love of Mike, do NOT become like a born-again xian who states, “The Bible said it, I believe it, that settles it!” and yes there are those who work grimoires with that exact mindset! Do you really want to be known as a “Fundamentalist Magician?” Things are not cut and dried especially today where there are few exceptions to the black and white viewpoint because most of us live in varying shades of gray so knowing we live in more modern times where things are far more complex than they were 500 years ago, don’t expect spirits to be like that either.

Love Is More Than Texting & Social Media Posts

There seems to be some form of miscommunication today with Millennials and those who are of the instant messaging persuasion to think that sorcery/magic and spirits are geared towards this silly notion of love via texting & social media.

You’re way off from the mark if this is what you believe because this is not how spirits work - at least classical spirits or the ones I tend to work with and I’d say 80% of the karcists out there who engage in spirit summoning work. You need to understand we’re not summoning spirits to get your desired one to click a “Like” on your profile because there’s no intimacy there. Spirits don’t get it mainly because most adults don’t get it. 

When you hide behind your phone, and let’s call it exactly what it is folks, you’re hiding because you have issues that you have never decided to deal with, you want a spirit to make say Janessa Fleure LIKE your profile. For real??? When did you bump your head? That’s NOT her falling in love with you, lunkhead, because real love involved intimacy. Hello? And if you’re too thick headed or too scared to get off your bum to go tell her what a marvelous woman she is, well you deserve to lose her to someone who will do exactly that!

Relationships are more than texting one another or posting memes, photos & other erroneous errata on one’s public profile. Yeah, sure, we all like to post goofy, silly and inane nonsense from time to time just to be ourselves however when you want to get serious, you may start off chatting with Janessa telling her how pretty she is and all manner of things that you like about her. Fine. However listen up: one day you WILL have to make a stand and go meet her, IN PERSON, spend time with her and try to build something real instead of that artificial world you want to live in. Copy that? if not, re-read that last sentence again until you do get it because it is important.

That artificial world is safe, sure, and it is also lonely. There’s no one to reach out and hug you when you’ve had a bad day; no one to listen to how your crummy boss chewed you out for one of his own glaring errors; no one to hug back and tell her she the prettiest girl (guy/etc insert here) you ever met; because real intimacy is predicated upon spending actual time together - like people did in school. You ate lunch together, talked, shared life issues, laughed about favorite TV shows, cried about things that made you feel sad, and all of that. HOW can you justify hiring a practitioner to “get me X” when you fail to get off your lazy ass and go hang out with X??? “Oh no! X didn’t like my latest post!” ugh.... grow up and become an adult. If you are an adult, then stop mentally acting like a fool because you’re wasting your time and money. Social media is a smorgasbord for the mentally insane and for you to put all of your eggs in that basket says quite a bit about your own mentality. Get real. Get intimate. Get human. If you can't talk then how about learning to talk to others? That's what you supposed to learn in school so if you failed to learn that, guess whose fault that is? Perhaps instead of enchanting to get X you'd be better served to ask the spirits to bring you a real personality - one that includes the ability to communicate without a phone in your hands? 

Do you have any idea who many people come to me wanting their version of X who they have never met in person? Only chatted with on the Net? Sure I’ve done my fair share of chatting back in the day and made some great friends and had a few gals I’d have loved to have been with buuuuut 1,000 + miles away? Pfffft that’s not realistic for either of us. So think about these things if it’s NOT realistic for either you to move to where THEY are nor for them to pack up and move to where YOU are, guess what? It’s probably not a real love relationship either. Period. You’re wasting your time. Go find someone locally you can hang with and see on a regular basis not someone who lives across your province or in another.

Now IF you have met this person and you know them, have hung out with them, hugged them even slept with them (though the last one is not a requirement) then yeah that is a real chance of a success. But this nonsense of trying to coax Janessa because she's on your social media friends list means jack and squat to the spirits. They want to know if They do JuJu for you, that you're gonna get up off your dead bum and go hang with the person NOT wait for X to Like your posts. Ugh so silly but this happens more often than any of you realize.

Either you’re serious about a love relationship OR you’re just farting around pretending and no one, human or spirit, wants to waste their time with anyone whose pretending. Count on that!

Celebrities, Rumors and Truths

Though it fails me to remember who wrote it, there was an article back in the late 80's when athletes were being crucified for their blatant sexual stupidity by over stepping their bounds for taking chances with women. Sometimes these were women they were dating, other times they were merely fans of the athlete who thought the women would enjoy a roll in the hay with them. All of a sudden people began crucifying these neanderthals for their decisions forgetting that first off they’re athletes - bears of very little brain (but much muscle). 

People were incensed and rightly so about how these guys were taking advantage of women with their star status and using it to their advantage. The article’s author, who I believe it was a woman, stated in effect, “we are also to blame for this for putting these athletes up on a pedestal thinking they can do no wrong” and they clearly showed the world they most definitely would if given the chance.

So pray tell WHY do we flip out when actors and musicians are found out to be like these athletes? After all they’re just following in the footsteps of politicians and evangelists who use their power to summon women, enthrall them with silver tongued words, then molest them. It is the same thing just a different profession.

I don’t care if someone graduated from an Ivy League university or from a state sponsored community college, if the opportunity to be a scumbag is there, and he believes he can get away with it, he’s going to do it especially if s/he has some sort of celebrity clout behind them. Sad but true.

As a kid I also recall hearing my aunts talk about how when they go out to clubs, they would get their own drinks refusing to let just anyone get them their drink. When I asked my aunt Diane why, she said, “Because some asshole can put a rufie in it or god forbid something maybe worse!” which she then explained the whole date rape thing to me. I was 9 y/o at the time and this was 1973 so the fear of predators and guys who prey upon women was real even back then.

We even find this Pedestal mentality in the occult/spiritual community. It’s amazing how people react to you when you write a few books thinking great and amazing things just pop out of your head or fly out of your bum. It’s as if these folks forget that all celebrities are first and foremost people regardless of whether they’re musicians, actors, athletes, authors, sculptors and so forth, everyone of them is someone who was born a person. People are jumbled bags of emotions and subject to making poor decisions - just like you! The key is to bear in mind your celebrity is a person even if s/he seems super-human (or supra-human) they still eat, defecate, bleed, urinate and everything else - just like you do!

I’m not suggesting you be rude to celebrities when you meet them as some are, but rather maybe make that pedestal within arm’s reach instead of setting it so high that you can’t reach it any longer. They all started out somewhere and EVEN IF they started off from a home with a silver spoon in their mouth, that doesn’t automatically mean they’re bad from the beginning. There are good people from all walks of life. Remember, there have been many good popes, kings, nobles, rulers, politicians and others who were good leaders who actually cared about their constituents. Even self-absorbed kings cared for their serfs and peasants for without them, they had no country, no tax base and no kingdom over which to rule. Not everyone was a Nero.

And remember to evaluate every “claim” of malfeasance or misconduct rigidly because you do not know whether or not what someone from the woodwork is saying is true or not. Remember not every kid who claimed to have been molested by Michael Jackson was! One or more dropped their case and it had nothing to do with being paid off. Sometimes police find nothing to substantiate a plaintiff’s claim against a celebrity. The other issue is when police are trying to prove such and such happened to X 30+ years ago and there is no evidence other than X's testimony. 

Some of you may be quick to jump on such person’s side automatically but I hesitate. Why? Well there are all sorts of people out there who are mentally unstable who see things in their mind that never really happened nor happened the way they claim it did.

Remember a someone once wrote, “There’s 3 kinds of truth: yours, mine and the real truth” and the sad fact is the real truth may be far different from what the plaintiff is claiming. How often do we know we’re hearing the real truth anymore? Even in courts of law? Testimonies can be purchased, people lie, lawyers omit evidence, stretch half-truths, polish lies and innocent people are railroaded sometimes for their entire lives behind bars. YET we’re supposed to automatically believe Ms. X who claims Joe Celebrity did this to her decades ago. Really? Whatever happened to the statute of limitations? Hmmm?

However people are quick to believe hearsay, half-truths, gossip, unsubstantiated rumors, whispers behind hands, scandalous claims, and so on without any evidence proving the assertions whatsoever! Why? Because people WANT to believe everyone else is a crook while they themselves are spotless and never do any wrong. Horse shit. You’ve erred somewhere in your life - you just refuse to recall it because you buried it deep.

The danger here, good pagan folk, is that just a few hundred years past, we had a bunch of school girls who went about claiming a village was full of evil witches and 20 innocent people died as a result of the townsfolk believing their rumors, gossip and hearsay! Oh you’ve forgotten about that? Well I haven’t. That was all based on lies, deceit, hearsay, rumor, gossip and so on. The same swill all of you LOVE to revel in on a daily basis. Remember this well: the finger which points to another and spreads falsity, gossip and rumor which you wholly believe can just as easily turn and point at you!

It may be time to re-evaluate your love of your chosen celebrities and especially anyone you set high on a pedestal before you find out something they may have done in their youth. Because your options are limited to either throwing them away all together or forgive them for their youthful folly and move on. You don’t have much else you can do and a person does need some heroes to enjoy. No one is without faults. If you look hard enough you will find them. But is that what you’re looking to a hero for?

Bustin' Yet Another Useless Metaphysical Platitude

“Everything you need to know, is already inside you!”

Are you into useless platitudes that do nothing for you but give you a false sense of security and relief if but for a moment in time? Yes I am about to step away from the herd here and to grill yet another stereotypical metaphysical platitude that is both useless and has no basis in fact.

“But Moloch, WHY are you bothering to step on people’s ‘good feelings’?” 

Well there are thousands of hopeful folks out there who believe this smelly tripe as having real value when in fact it has none. How you ask? Allow me to continue...

The sentence itself is pure foolishness. Everything you need to know is already inside you? Really? So you did not need an adult to show you how to wipe your own bum, tie your own shoes, use eating utensils, bathe, dress, use manners and so on? Really? Have you never seen documentaries about children who grew up in the wild without parents? Ever see how animalistic they degenerated? These unfortunate souls acted more like base animals and reacted frightened to their harsh world around them. When observed, they never truly act or react except out of survival instinct. Their thoughts are hunt, feed, flight or fight. That’s pretty much it. 

Everything you know you have taken for granted that you have LEARNED somewhere, from someone. You were just so used to be in a learning environments as a youth that you forgot all about these learning experiences. Same thing goes for when your parental units took time to teach you to do complex things from tying your shoe laces to riding a bicycle to using appliances or power tools to eventually driving a vehicle.

You simply did not just learn these things on your own. Sure you may have picked up a power drill and began to drill some holes. Okay but was your first hole accurate? Straight? Smooth? No rough spots? Or did someone show you how to use the tool properly to get the most benefit from it? Did you read the instructions? Did you read a booklet on using one? Did you watch a video? All of those examples require someone with experience to have taken the time to make them so that you could learn from.

Behavior is also learned. Love is not universal as it too has to be taught and learned as much as hate. Feelings may be universal but they’re not processed and without someone to help you process and understand them, they can be confusing and conflicting within someone who does not know how to communicate. Imagine being a blind, deaf and mute from birth all alone in your own world THEN tell me everything you need to know is already within you. We are not born with the knowledge, memories, or skills we need to make it in this complex world so we have to be taught that information.

Knowledge, wisdom, personal hygiene, behavior, social skills, customs & taboos - everything you now know had to be taught to you in some manner. Because you just didn’t miraculously know all of this somehow out of the blue inside your head as that is not how it works. We have to learn, process and understand knowledge before we can make use of this new knowledge for ourselves.

It’s utter rubbish people. You do NOT know everything you need inside of you to resolve your life because you have much to learn even now! Much more. 

This platitude is an injunction against learning and is really a rallying shout from the Lost Boys club ala Peter Pan rather than some metaphysical worldview. Because when you sit down and analyze it for what it is, you see it to be just plain silly then you have to ask yourself why would you want to use it? Because it’s not helpful in any way nor does it contribute to your greater good. If you must adopt a platitude, why not adopt one that will contribute to your greater good? Ancestors know there are plenty of them out there to adopt.

Getting A Handle On Anarchy For Change: Invoking Eris

Recently I got into it with some self-proclaimed anarchist who had to invoke the typical “herd mentality” at the rest of society YET this dude does nothing but sit online (on social media no less) kvetching and bickering about the state of society, governments and the rest of the world. When I asked, “So what have you little anarchists done for the cause lately?” he gets a bee in his bonnet and uses an old line, “You hide behind a fake picture and keyboard” *yawn* Wow. This is supposed to be the BEST comeback from one of the brightest in the anarchist collective? If so, is it any wonder the anarchy collective is all but dead today?

Today anarchy is little more than a joke because what it entails is a bunch of old fucks sitting around listening to old school punk rock reminiscing about their days of concerts and spray painting the anarchy symbol on walls (as if that ever did anything other than spread vandalism.) Instead of spreading the word, what do jokers like this do? Bitch, whine and complain back then - as much as they do today.

Just how many of them are active in their local politics? When queried? None. I have yet to meet any of these anarchists who will admit they are actively involved in their local political climates trying to change anything be it even their local animal cruelty laws. No they’d rather sit and bitch and pass around poorly made and misspelled memes on social media to “raise awareness”. Well folks, raising awareness is what the Xians have been doing about Jesus the Christ for the past 2,000 years. Hello? Pray tell WHY do Pagans and so-called anarchists continue to waste their bloody time ‘raising awareness’? Just how many people have never heard of your cause?

So When Are You Going To Do Something Productive?

Therein lies the rub. The biggest issue tends to be people and their personal level of comfort. Most folks don’t like their comfort zones to be interfered with and that includes having to get off their duffs to go out and get the morning paper let alone pass out flyers, knock doors, or (horrors) talk to people about the sorry state of things their political climate is in. Anarchists love to talk and these days they talk less and pas around memes far more. I see little success in any of this because a meme may say a lot but it cannot answer back, nor answer specific questions people may have. Getting involved is far more important yet most people don’t want to do that - “Let someone else do that shit, I can’t be bothered!”

Here's an Idea: Start Locally!

WHY on the God’s green earth does everyone mistakenly believe all change must come from the top down? WHERE does it say that in the laws? Nowhere. Truth is change begins locally and works its way UP instead. You are far less likely to be able to affect any major decision your Congressman or the POTUS makes however you will have a far greater impact on you local city council, mayor, county commissioners, township trustees and school board - IF you get involved instead of worrying about which Congressman is blowing which lobbyist.

I get that anarchists really want fair treatment - which is what we all want - but sitting around kvetching about not receiving it, is not helping anyone. So what to do? Get involved with your local school board first because these are the folks who are influencing the minds of your children, nieces, nephews, the kid who delivers your papers, the girls who sell you cookies in January, and so forth. The local school boards are the people who are trying to lower standards so kids move on to the next grade without trying or graduate high school and be ignorant of the Constitution, US History, and other important studies. They’re also the ones who say that cursive writing is no longer important so they’ve phased it out. They’ve also gotten rid of recess, lunch-recess, art & music classes and other useful learning tools. But hey, the extra curricular sports programs are in effect! Perhaps its time to begin to badger your school board or start a grass roots campaign to get your local school board to re-institute some of the missing things you know kids need to be healthy, smart and blow off that excess energy from lunch & snacks.

Real Anarchists Don’t Cry

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing a couple of really cool anarchists in my life and these folks were not only folks who believed in the anarchy philosophy but they understood that since they could not make lemonade, they did the next best thing. They got involved in local politics to be watchdogs. Each one joined a different party and blended in. They worked their way in to the inner core to find out what was really going on then did their best to expose the hypocrisy and false pretenses the party was espousing to the world. That’s not selling out, that’s highly intelligent and wickely clever.

One of them got beat up for doing this by some of his party members once they realized what he was about. He’s lucky they didn’t kill him but he knew enough to head out into the hills and hide out long term. That’s an anarchist! Stick it to you and bug out.

“But Moloch, I’m Handicapped &/or Home Bound”

Understood and do not let that deter you one iota. You can get involved and stick it to the man from the privacy of your own home. I use this when I have time and share it with others who feel the need to do so but the idea is to cause calamity among the men (& women) in political power who make decisions of their own accord that are in conflict with what their constituents desire.

Enter Eris, Goddess of Chaos... 

Use the symbol of Chaos, the 8 pointed star, and draw it over the printed image of your political victim. Then a few drops of Lucifer oil should be sufficient to smear over the photo. Now you make an invocation to the Goddess Eris, the Mistress of Chaos, and say, “Oh Eris, I beseech you to introduce Thy mighty gift of chaos to Congressman ___’s political life! Bring the blessings of chaos, turmoil, strife, cacophony and all that comes with Thy unholy chaos to this political power so that he learns his power is naught compared to Thine!”

Now imagine the skies over the US Capitol building are growing cloudy, gray and dark. It looks very nasty as if there is a huge storm brewing. Then out of nowhere a tornado of unimaginable size comes whirling down out of the dark clouds assaulting the Capitol building. As it does so the tornado begins to shrink and as it melts into the Capitol’s dome. Then the tornado is moving inside until it finds the office of the Congressman you’ve sent it to and it envelops him tearing at him, entering his mind to shreds, making him a gibbering mess. His very words are nonsense, silly or unintelligible. Hold this image for a while then speak the holy words, “Ah-shur-ah El-bye-ee Tzah-toe-dah-kah” and you’re finished.

Repeat this ceremony at least three more times for it to have a permanent, lasting effect. 

You Don’t Have To Wish

To be involved you can be direct, indirect or as involved as you wish to be. However doing nothing but passing around anarchy themed memes is a joke itself and about as useful as Xians holding up John 3:16 placards at sport’s games. Whereas you can do something locally with your politicians and school boards (remember most politicians get their start on school boards) as well as keep an eye on them from day one and keep accurate tallies on who they are, what they say, believe and turn that over to the public. It’s entirely up to you.
