Doers Not Dreamers Make It Big

Ever since I began offering my Spirit Alliance I have received a number of requests from people who want to be wealthy in business. That is awesome because if YOU become wealthy, it opens up a whole new world to your & your family allowing greater opportunities to experience things in life others cannot financially afford such as exotic trips, learning opportunities and greater independence through self-reliance.

Also such success helps others in your community as you grow in wealth such as tailors, dry cleaners, car dealerships, cell phone dealers, office supply outlets, shoe stores, and so on. Of course the more money you make, the more taxes are paid which in turn helps the community coffers for those less fortunate than yourself.

But the Spirits I deal with do NOT like the idea of trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. By that I mean you have to have a viable, worthy goal for them to want to help you. Dreaming alone will not make it. Napoleon Hill, one of the greatest self-help teachers this world has ever known (and most likely the root cause of the industrial boom of the 20s onward) stated that you have to have a worthy goal (one that you believe is achievable) and you have think about it a lot.

Conventional Methods

With Hill’s plan, laid out in his book “Think and Grow Rich”, one can certainly move forward one step at a time up that ladder of success through sheer determination. Hill’s plan is no big secret these days since so many have read and began using his method. The step-by-step plan in that book is a systematic process that has helped hundreds of thousands worldwide to achieve their dreams of financial success.

The first step is a worthy goal. But with the sows ear part, a worthy goal to become the best sales rep in your department will not work if all you have is just a dream. There is a lot of effort that needs to be expended in various forms from getting started early & quitting late to investing in yourself by taking courses in sales (such as the famed Dale Carnegie course) to taking weekend classes at your local community college in say Marketing, Advertising or plain old Communications.

I had a woman come to me wanting to become a big deal in real estate. She worked a regular 6am to 3pm factory job and planned on selling real estate from 3 pm to 7 pm part time during the week and on Saturdays. Further she had no time to devote to any further training due to her busy schedule. I told her she was dooming herself from the start. Why?

Rare is the person becomes a success when they plunge headlong into a project with everything they got; rarer still is the one who becomes successful doing something part-time. In fact, I only met one person who ever made much of anything part time but that individual had worked in the industry for years already in a full time position and he had the contacts to make it work for him part time.

There is wisdom when Jesus said, “Ye cannot serve two masters” and in business, that is a truism. To make it BIG, you have to sell your soul to your business 100%. Period. Further you have you to invest $$$$ into yourself to grow & learn.

I could have had a very lucrative job traveling in South America selling processing machines for the poultry foods industry. I needed to be able to speak either Portuguese or Spanish but preferably both. The job had a base salary of $60K/year, travel expenses, clothing allowance and a generous commission as well as bonus structure. The guy was REALLY interested in me because of my sales background in the food industry.

Unfortunately, I never bothered (when I was younger) to learn Spanish else he’d have hired me to work for him. Had there been a Rosetta Stone back in the 90s, I’d have bought the Spanish version and did the whole crash course in Spanish. It’d been worth it in the long run.

But it amazes me how the dreamers out there never do anything to further themselves. I’ve been involved in sales since 1995 and I was amazed at how many sales people I’ve met over the years who never read a single sales book. That’s like someone wanting to practice Magic that took a single, weekend 2 hour class and s/he wants to set up shop to become a reader/practitioner.

Investing in oneself is mandatory. You have to know your subject matter inside & out. If you want to make it big in real estate, then study the housing market. Read the trade industry magazines for it. Look at the weekly freebies that tell you what’s out there & for what prices. How many ‘for sale by owner’ listings are there in your area? Those are prime to convert as well as what sorts of properties are hot now? Knowing your industry through and through is the first step. You have to LOVE the industry and be fascinated by it for your heart to be fully committed.

After that, a realtor’s license is mandatory. I’ve met a limited number of successful realtors who never took any advanced sales classes outside of what was offered by their dealership association. The ones who I know are multi-millionaires are the ones who I’ve seen at the Cleveland Executive council, Dale Carnegie, Toastmasters, night classes at the community college and at the library borrowing books on housing & construction, sales, advertising & marketing.

You might say, “Gee Moloch, when does a successful realtor have time to study & digest all of that in addition to working 60+ hours a week as well as taking care of their family responsibilities? Good question!

It is true that the biggest successes in business had a solid foundation at home. If they had kids and mom was trying to become the next realtor millionaire, then her hubby was working his job to maintain the family’s financial responsibilities while handling the daily household chores and the kids. Hard life but that’s how it is if you’ve got a family.

If you’re single, you have less home responsibilities (obviously) and if you’re without children, that allows you far more free time to devote to knowledge acquirement as well as out on the road at the crack of dawn & dragging your dead ass in the door after dark.

The dream is but the first step. Putting it down on paper is the second step. Getting off your duff and going after it is the third step. That’s how it’s done. If you’re smart, invest some time in yourself and study. Learn. Absorb your industry. Know it inside & out. Know who the big dawgs are and learn how they made it big.

Keep your integrity intact. Be smart and stay clear from schemes, cons & rip offs. If you meet someone who thinks they can make it big, the easy way, then that’s a warning bell to run the other way. Making it big in business is definitely NOT easy. I heard a LOT of No-Thank-You’s before I made a sale. Learn to love the word No.

Magical Methods

My advice is to first start off by having a Mass sung for your Ancestors and ordering an Ancestral Feeding. By doing this you are invoking the aid of your Ancestors to help keep the rest of your life smooth and with as few problems as possible.

Then it is wise to begin a standard regimen of alternating Uncrossing and Success rituals performed on a regular basis. The idea is to remove obstacles from your path and then invoke success. Focus on succeeding in business and the money will follow so it’s not as important to do Money Drawing rituals like the so-called experts like to suggest. This is what I did for years while being a road warrior selling direct in-home to families all over Ohio.

Also doing an occasional Uncrossing bath then doing a Luck In Business bath then wearing a Luck-In-Business perfume will help to ensure you have blockages out of your way and the best opportunities that roll your way.

The candle rituals can get expensive after a while but unless you have the required skills to properly summon the right sort of Spirit, it’s best to stay away from trying to summon a Spirit for help or at the least hire someone like yours truly who can hook you up with a powerful Spirit.

Everyone thinks all they have to do is summon Bune or Orobas from the Goetia and that’s all it’s going to take to make one wealthy in business. (LoL Were it so simple!) There is a LOT the grimoire does not tell you and much that your typical Goetic practitioner doesn’t know that can get you into a lot of trouble magically.

There is a lot that goes into a Spirit Alliance so it is not a simple matter. Spirits are fickle and it takes a skilled Priest who is also an expert negotiator to get you the right Spirit to hook you up with so you can succeed. While that sounds simplistic getting things rolling is not.

Each Spirit has to be maintained as well. This means It has needs and desires that must be catered to. That is where I come in and it’s my job to keep the Spirit happy for you. Your job is to know your industry & work your butt off and the Spirit’s job is to bring you viable opportunities to succeed while either keeping bad things away from you or giving you hunches & dreams to forewarn you.

In summary, to become really successful, you have to know the industry you wish to work in; you must invest in yourself to gain additional knowledge; and then have a plan of attack on the Spiritual front so that your way is paved so you can gain your heart’s desire.

To Do or Not To Do: The Choice Is Yours

One of the most aggravating things clients, customers & novice Occultists throw up at me is, “How do I do that?” By this I mean when someone purchases a product and then wants to know how to use it, I tell them and then I get, “Oh gee Moloch I can’t do that because ____!”

Folks, Sorcery is not some McWiccan or Dungeons & Dragons game. You have to figure some things out for yourself. Let’s face it, even in the silliest of McWiccan literature, no one tells you how to employ something that’s difficult.

For instance: you come to me to buy an Occult oil such as a love oil. Okay I make you a potent love oil but tell you its best used when you wear it & touch the desired with your hands. It’s not MY job to tell you HOW to do that. Hell I don’t know you or the other person and frankly your business with them is none of my business.

But for sake of argument if I tell you to TOUCH someone to get the fullest effect, then that is how it needs to be done. Period. I get sick of people telling me, “Well I can’t do that because ___!” Really? How bad do you want the end result?

One guy I sold a bottle of Commanding oil to lives in a foreign land where touching - even hand shaking - is done only when offered to you not by you offering it to them. Well sorry Charlie but that tuna will just get away.

Sure you can use oils the old fashioned way by anointing candles, talismans, the target’s photograph but hardcore Sorcerers know such things pale in comparison with direct physical contact. If you are unable to directly touch the person - such as them living in another state or some sort of tribal laws or even them being an ex of some type - then you won’t get the strongest effect possible.

This is sort of like when you come across an old spell in an old musty book. The spell calls for a few ingredients you don’t have or are unable to find. Many of you try the McWiccan method which is to substitute and that is dangerous. Why? Frankly if you don’t know what the ingredient IS how can you know you are substituting a correct or like-ingredient? Answer is you don’t!

Best to scratch that spell or rite and find another that’s suitable. There are ingredients to make Kyphi incense from Egyptian manuscripts that we have no clue what the ingredient is. Sure we can translate it however that does not mean we know WHAT it is. Capisci?

Sometimes spells or rituals require us to do things we find unpleasant or out of the norm. If you cannot or will not do that, then give up that spell or ritual. If a Spirit says to you, “Obtain sand from a desert” and you live in Kansas, you better get on the Net & find someone who lives near a desert.

I get asked, “But how do I bury this in their yard?” or “Spray this on their front door?” and my answer is, get creative or pay someone else to do it for you. HOW you do it is NOT my job. Many times I went into enemy territory under the auspices of the cloak of night in the wee hours of the morning.

“But I may get caught!” Yup that is a possibility. “So what do I do?” Answer: Don’t get caught.

If you’re whining about how to deliver the payload, then you’re weakening the power of the Sorcery to begin with. Got that? The more you complain, the weaker it gets. Grow a pair and just do what you must do. I’m not saying go and break the law rather I’m asserting that if you pay me for a potion and for the potions best efficacy is to come in contact with an ex or love-to-be, then it is up to you to deliver it.

Got it? Sorcery isn’t for wussies. Either you do it or you don’t. Simple as that.

The Metaphysical Microwave

I was reading a post on Don Kraig's blog about the late Occultist Ophiel's "Sphere of Availability" which got me to thinking about how so few really understand why their creative visualizations fail.

Too many people are looking for that fantasy element in Sorcery that is what I like to call the great Metaphysical Microwave. This is that great magical device that allows one to input a desire and in 20 seconds *beep* out pops a freshly made new desire usually a new job, new car, new ___.

The truth of the matter is that as techniques go, creative visualization in itself is a useful and extremely powerful tool. The downside is it takes effort i.e. work to make it manifest your desire. By work I mean the effort, invested time and whatever money you need to put into making your desire a reality.

There is something inherently magical about the idea of taking a blank book, writing a desire on a page and reading that desire daily, over & over while imagining yourself living that desire. What the vast majority of creative visualization authors fail to tell you is that you need to go about your daily life and keep your eyes, ears and attention open until you bump into the opportunities necessary to make your desire a reality.

While it may seem like the great Metaphysical Microwave does indeed exist if we listen to some people talk about how they prayed to a god or saint, did a candle spell or simple lashed out at the Universe and (poof) their desire came quickly to them, that is not the norm for most people.

The average person is in the throes of life with a million & one problems facing them while they get yet another major problem facing them. The fact is they’re overwhelmed with problems and cannot think straight let alone focus their mind on ONE particular deal. These are the folks who mistakenly believe winning a lottery will fix all their problems.

Gambling is a false hope and lotto drawings are a worse sort of false hope. The statistical odds of winning even a small amount of money say $10,000 on a scratch off ticket is usually something like 50,000:1 odds. And yet people want to pray to the Spirits or do creative visualizations for money to come to them in this manner?

My advice is always take the first step & do some Divination. What do the Spirits have to say about your situation? Where do they see the problems stemming from? Where will you likely end up if you do nothing? How can you find the funds necessary to get X, Y & Z paid off? Thus one Divination will not be enough; you will have to perform several or spend a chunk of change with a reader & have several questions answered in an hour.

People often believe there is no hope. That dooms their prayers, spells & invocations from the get-go. I mean if your attitude is such, why bother with any sort of Metaphysical belief? You cannot serve two masters thus you need to choose the right one & believe that in the end, everything will work itself out correctly.

Ophiel’s techniques in his book “The Art and Practice of Getting Material Things Through Creative Visualization” are worthwhile to memorize & practice. If you really want to supercharge your creative visualization, work with the Treasure Map as well. Doing so puts two famous and powerful Metaphysical techniques in your hands to focus your life on so that you follow your heart’s desire to fruition.

To use those techniques, one does not have to be initiated into any religion, lodge or coven. In fact, even non-occultists can use them and see tangible results in the end.

Now presuming you have chosen a worthy goal to attain, say you have a desire to own a 1967 Corvette Stingray convertible and regardless of what others think, you have always wanted to own one. It is time to look in magazines & on the Net for photographs of this car.

Go to old car shows and meet people who actually own one. Ask to gently touch it and if possible to sit in it. You want to know what it feels like to simply SIT in the vehicle. This is because you can later draw on those memories to help fuel your visualization as it is best to involve ALL of the senses when doing this sort of Metaphysical work.

What does the car smell like? Feel like? Look like? Sound like? Yes ask them to start it so you can hear the engine run. All of this is important as you will take these impressions & solidfy them later. Take photographs of the car but block out the license plates - you don’t want THEIR Corvette, you want your own. Ask to take their photograph in one and then when you print it, blot out their face(s) with a thumbnail sized photo of your own face over theirs.

Now keep your ears & eyes wide open everywhere: you may find one waiting for you. Keep working & banking your money to help you afford one when it comes along. Sometimes people sell things dirt cheap to pay for bills, debts and even sometimes to have some money before they go to prison for extended sentences (1% bikers often do this when they’ve been sentenced for life in prison).

How long will it take to manifest your desire? As long as it does. I cannot give you a rough estimate since I am not you nor know how much money you have banked for such a purchase. I would say that if you have enough money saved, then the prospects of finding one should not take very long if you keep looking in auto trader magazines, corvette clubs, eBay & Craigslists as well as telling friends/family you’re on the hunt for one.

But it is not very likely you will get one without the required money which is part of the investment YOU need to put forward. Don’t have any spare moolah? Well then look at your income VS expenditures and see where you can both trim the fat off your expenditures and increase your income.

Sacrificing often MUST be made to afford something like this and I’m not talking about goats & chickens either. Self-sacrifices such as partying with friends, going out to eat or to concerts, movies & places where it co$ts money to go. Cut your expenses and increase your income and the money will find its way to your bank account.

If you’re one of those who say, “Moloch, every time I save a nickel, something costing a dime comes along and I cannot get ahead!” To that I will say maybe it’s time to take a hard look at your life. What’s causing all of these bills that are nickeling & diming you to death? If you have kids who are constantly bleeding you for money, perhaps it’s time for some tough love & telling them to pick themselves up & go their own way?

Are you someone who likes to smoke weed and everyone (including the law) knows it? Well then give it up. When you’re clean, they won’t be able to arrest, imprison & fine you, right? Oh you think you ought to be allowed to smoke weed with impunity? Well so do I however the laws of the land say otherwise. If you’re scraping to get by, what are you doing buying street drugs that you know you cannot afford?

I have a relative who has no driver’s license (due to too many DUI’s) yet he wants money for a car. To me that’s putting the cart before the horse. He’s still a substance abuser and if he had the vehicle, Johnny Law would nab him in a flat second, then arrest, trial, fines and so on.

Broke? No job but still want a Corvette? Okay make it your goal and work to get a job that will pay you what you need to afford one. Realize this may take social government paperwork & interviews to get you into a program that will train you to do X job. Don’t like the thought of any of that? Then start & run your own business!

The local poor man’s university a.k.a. the Public Library, has thousands of books & with time you could study enough to start & run your own business. Knowledge is power when you use it and the library is a vast arsenal of power all waiting to be mined. You just have to work for as well as invest the time in it.

Some magicKians think this is all about one thing: intent. I say bullshit. Intentions are moot; I ask what DRIVES you? What is your passion? What desire do you want and how badly do you truly want it?
