I am making a set of 30 “Finance Hands”. These are charms designed to not only draw money towards you, but to hold on that money and increase it. You can either carry them or place them near where you keep you financial information.
I will be selling 20 of these hands and giving away 10 to people that need the help and cannot afford them.
I don’t have a picture yet, but the charm is a green bag tied into the palm of a gator hand. The bag itself will have traditional items like High John Root and Loadstone, as well as 7 seals, one for each of the planetary powers invoked into the bag. They will be consecrated seven times over the course of two weeks starting on Monday Jan 26th and ending on Saturday the Feb 7th. I am making them available to readers of this blog before I advertise them elsewhere.
If you would like to purchase a hand, cost is $30.
If you are in need and would like one of the 10 free hands, let me know. There is no difference between the purchased and free hands.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

A friend/student of mine wrote me that she was having a big meeting with someone that had been causing her many problems. She managed to get the meeting held on her turf knowing that she would have home court advantage. She wrote for advice and than followed that advice and reported back with her success. It is a fairly good example by what I mean by Strategic Sorcery so I will break it down for those that are interested in such things.
First I asked if he was bringing anyone to the meeting. He was bringing an assistant, so I suggested that she bring her own assistant as your numbers should always match or outnumber your opponents. I told her to arrange it so that her chair was the highest in the room and had something like a window or door behind it. Her opponents were to be on the other side of the table from her, as was her assistant so that they would feel like their side was “infiltrated” and they could be hit from multiple sides. Her assistants chair should be not quite as high as hers, but higher than the ones her opponents were in. If possible there should be a blank wall behind her opponents so that she can read their auras and see the philotic lines clearly.
She should than banish the room with an LBRP and dust the seats with appropriate powders: Confusion or Domination powder on her opponent’s chairs, commanding powder on hers. If she wanted to powder some documents, that would work too, as long as there is no visible residue left.
The night before the meeting she should do some kind of binding spell in her temple upon them: she chose to take the object-links that she had for them (she is a link hoarder, just like me) and ritually place them in the freezer, a slightly less yucky version of the old spell where you put the link in a beef tongue and freeze it.
Just before the meeting I suggested that she pore breath fire element and than cast the ever popular “confusion shield” that I wrote about in my first book upon herself.
When she meets them she can blast them with the fire element that she loaded up on through breath, hand shake, or will. Than encapsulate them in shields that are dark on the inside and contracted close to their body. This has the effect of infringing on someone’s personal space without actually being near them. They feel small and stifled.
In the meeting she knows to use conversational hypno-sorcery like embedded commands, yes-ladders, and anchors coupled with energy body yoga. All that stuff is covered in the upcoming book, but she has already read the pertinent chapter.
After the meeting she can take new links back to her temple and either do a commanding spell or summon a spirit to re-enforce the message that she got across to them at the meeting.
In short, rather than settle for a spell, you weave a strategy. The strategy should incorporate elements that are both magickal and mundane and combine temple magick with field magick. In this case you prepare the battle field with traps and triggers both magickal and psychological. You perform temple spells ahead of time, than do energy work just before the event. During the event you toss out more field magick while skillfully using NLP tricks. After the event you follow it up with more temple magick.
There was a lot more that could be done, but its best not to overdo something.
I had a very productive weekend in New Orleans . Made a new contact over at Esoterica that could lead to a potential class or two down there. When I told Mimi, the owner, I wrote Protection and Reversal Magick she got very excited. "That book flies off the shelves every time we get it in!". I bought an awsome "Leviathan Goat Pentagram" from her. This is the image from Oswald Wirth that LaVey used for the Church of Satan. It doesnt mean the same for me as it did for him of course, but its a powerful image for me. The pendant is all red, and is a good quality cast.

Ok I wasnt doing magick in the 70's, but I was doing it in the mid-eighties which means I had lots of exposure to 70's magick books. I found an LJ today from several years ago called "That 70's Magick" and it really sent me back. Back to the days of Chant-o-matics, the Modern Witchces Spellbook and all those wonderful Parker press books, where every spell was followed up by cheesy testimonials. I still have my hardcover "Magic Power of Witchcraft" from the Frosts, with headings like "LEAVE YOU BODY AS WITCHES DO" "ANDY DISSOLVES A GALLSTONE" and "WITH MAGICK WITCHCRAFT POWER YOU CAN BE A PAGAN AND WIN".

Working through the last bit of my formation process with my ordaining Bishop. After looking through several liturgies that we were considering, including JSM Wards Liturgy for his Orthodox Catholic Chuch, also known as the Abbey of Christ the King, which hasnt been performed in decades to my knowlege. I mentioned to him that we would need to replace the Nicene creed with something else. At first this seemed to be a deal breaker and the last few years of study would be wasted. I walked away from proceeding with the OTO over Liber Oz, and was prepared to walk away from this as well.

The following list are just a few books that I think will compliment the material in The Sorcerer’s Secrets. The list does not represent what I think the best books on magick are in general, and certainly makes no attempt at being even close to comprehensive. There are only one or two books for each topic because it is possible for people to spend their lives reading rather than doing.
Protection & Reversal Magick: A Witch's Defense Manual
by Jason Miller
My book on magickal defense. When doing real magick, you need real protection. If I didn’t think it was the best one out there, I wouldn’t have written it.
Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic: A Materia Magica of African-American Conjure
Easily my favorite book on magickal herbalism by the proprietor of Lucky Mojo. Thousands of spells. Lots of history. You could do yourself a favor and sign up for her Hoodoo course at LuckyMojo.com
One of the most under-rated occult authors out there. Draja is the real deal. Get everything he ever wrote, but start with this one.
Meditation in a New York Minute: Super Calm for the Super Busy
Written specifically for busy people who live in the real world, not a monestary or spiritual utopia. This book has changed peoples lives.
Your Money or Your Life: 9 Steps to Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial
: Revised and Updated for the 21st Century Independence
One of the sacred scriptures of personal finance. Read the book and actually DO the exercises.
You're Broke Because You Want to Be: How to Stop Getting By and Start Getting Ahead
by Larry Winget
This book is great if you are flat broke. Larry will reach out from the page and kick your ass in gear.
The Art of Worldly Wisdom
by Baltasar Gracian (Author), Christopher Maurer (Translator)
It may have been penned in the 17th century, but every aphorism in this book is as relative today as it was then. Though it was authored by a Jesuit Priest, this book is 100% down to earth in its advice on dealing with others. Almost Machiavellian at times.
A Modern Angelic Grimoire
By Frater Rufus Opus
Sadly, this is only available on-line so far. If you want to start summoning spirits, this book will get you started. Find it at http://www.rufusopus.com/
Modern Magick: Eleven Lessons in the High Magickal Arts
This was the book that I worked through as a teenager. While the author lays out a few to many lame platitudes at times, and offers some misleading advice at other times, it is still a classic in the field and one that did me a lot of good.
Initiation into Hermetics
by Franz Bardon
One of the best programs of magickal and psychic training that I have ever read.
Mastering Witchcraft: A Practical Guide for Witches, Warlocks, and Covens
by Paul Huson
This book is NOT about Wicca. It is about Witchcraft. Think of “Sorcery for Pagans”. It has been condemned as immoral by some for its chapters on Vengeance and Attack, but it has been in print consistently for 30 years for a reason.
Mystical Origins of the Tarot: From Ancient Roots to Modern Usage
by Paul Huson
The only book on Tarot you will ever need. That’s all I really need to say about it.
Uncle Setnakt's Essential Guide to the Left Hand Path
by Don Webb
I am not Left Hand Path in my philosophy, but this book makes the list anyway. Disregard the Setian/Satanic stuff if you life, and you will still be left witth an excellent quide towards using magick in the real world to improve your life and the lives of those around you.
Vodou Love Magic: A Practical Guide to Love, Sex, and Relationships
by Kenaz Filan
Kenaz is a master of translating the world of Haitian Vodou into methods that can be worked by those outside of that community. A great source of Love magick.
The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
by Neil Strauss
Wonderful and entertaining book on the art of Picking up Girls. You will get more out of this novel than you will out of the “how to” books on the same subject.
The Art of Seduction
Great book on seduction for both Men and Women. Draws upon the wisdom of maters throughout the centuries.
The 48 Laws of Power
Timeless wisdom on getting ahead in life.
NLP: The New Technology of Achievement
A great book to take you further into the world of Neuro Linguistic Programming.
First and Last Freedom, The
Krishnamurti is the Guru that tells you that you need NO GURU. Truth is a pathless land. This book offers great advice for anyone navigating the world of magick, spirituality, and the occult.

I just had a short discussion over on the Omnimancy Forums about trans-dimensional magicks. One of their new guests was asking for a good resource, so of course I pointed him to the 10 Dimensions video. A good video, but really just a starter. Both physics and magick goes way beyond what is presented there, albeit in different directions.
Working with manipulating the dimensions of space/time/probability is a huge part of what I do, but falls under the category of things that I might be able to show you if you can see, but can’t quite explain in words. Some of the tech that I use to screw around with the dimensions I discovered intuitively by reverse-engineering spontaneous mystical experiences. Some of it I learned by watching other people do it. Some of it I learned from watching spirits do it.
Here’s an experiment for all you Solomonicaly inclined people out there: Summon a demon, angel, or nature spirit and ask it to do something for you, but ask to watch how they do it. The first time I did this, I saw the spirit open up windows into various probable futures and literally steer the present moment towards the desired outcome. Using this technique I was able to figure out a technique where I invoke the cube of space, expand that into a tesseract, focus on a specific “event thread” and than will the cube that I occupied to fold into that probably future. This works great for sorcery that needs to be accomplished in the next day or two, but not as well for long term issues.
My “Rending of Space” technique that will appear “The Sorcerer’s Secrets” is basically a 3-d version of the GD Rending of the Veil gesture. It was taught to me by a meditation teacher that worked with a strange group called “the Foundation”. I have found a thousand and one uses for it, from creating a space in a room that is easier for spirits to appear in, to actually passing unnoticed in front of people who are looking for me, to opening up the space around myself enough to project glamours onto. When I projected the same technique into working with the flow of time I was able to do some really screwy things that I am still not sure how happened.
Among the projects that I am rolling out this year, I am working on a PDF of “Advanced Sorcery” that I will sell from my website. Most of the stuff in it will be stuff that only some people will be able to understand and work with because it’s a bit fringe and because it requires the ability to see energy and astral formations directly, as well as other forms of subtle perception. Stuff like the above will be in there as will a write up called “Beyond shields, Armor”. Persephone will be happy to see a section on both “Cutting and Pasting” and “Philotic Lines”. In fact she gets a thank you in the PDF when it comes out for teaching me the term “Philotic Lines”. I will post a preview as soon as I get more of it finished.
2009 has filled me with an almost crazed zeal to work.
Headed to New Orleans next weekend.

Hoodoo 1 & 2 -
Jan 29 & Feb 26
Hoodoo is a distinctly American form of Sorcery combining African, European, and Native American practices. In this two part class Jason Miller (Inominandum), a professional Rootworker, will teach the history, theory, and practice of this potent tradition of magick. Be sure to bring a notebook as DOZENS of spells, tricks, and roots will be covered.
How Magick Works 1 & 2 -
March 26 & April 30
Anyone can follow a recipe or instruction in a spell kit, but only those who know how magick works can deal with any situation instantly for themselves or others. In this class Jason Miller will teach the underlying principals of practical magick and show how these work in various spells and rituals. If you have been wondering why maybe your spells haven't been as successful as would like, or if you are just looking to take yourself to the next level, this class is for YOU!
Angels and Demons 1& 2
May 28th and June 25th
Most of the classical spellbooks of medieval and renaissance Europe dealt the with summoning of Angels and Demons. First you summon the angels to empower and bless yourself, than the demons to put them to work for you instead of against you. In this class Jason will teach very simple and straightforward methods for summoning both Angels and Demons for the greater good of all. Attendees will receive a short Grimoire written by Jason specially for this class to get you started.
Jason Miller (Inominandum) has been studying and practicing magick for over 17 years. His studies have brought him all over the world: from the American South, to Europe, to the Himalayas. He is a member of several magickal orders and craft traditions as well as being an initiate of the Nyingma and Bon lineages of Tibet. He is the author of Protection and Reversal Magick, a Defense Guide for Witches and the upcoming book "The Sorcerers Secrets, Strategies in Practical Magick".

I can say this without ever having read the book.
I was googling info on Platonic solids in an attempt to write up my 3-dimensional spirit trap, (think a goetic triangle or Kilaya triangle extended into a tetrahedron..) and I came accross an Amazon sample page from the book (105). My eyes immediately went to the following quote:
"Plato studied with Aristotle who was a student of Pythagoras."
ummmmmmm. Ok, I am not the smartest guy in the world but even I know this is completely wrong. Aristotle studied in Plato's Academy and was still in it when Plato died. Neither of them knew Pythagoras who died 75 years before Plato was even born. If you cant get basic shit like that right, than I just dont even want to bother with you...

Given the collapse of Icelands economy do you think we will see a revival of the NECROPANTS spell?
For instance it is the traditional day to bless your house by consecrating chalk and writing the year and the initials C+M+B above the door. Of course the CMB stand for Caspar Melchior and Balthazar but also has the meaning of "Christus Mansionem Benedictat" (Christ bless this home).
It is normally done in this pattern: 20 C+M+B 09
Take today and reflect upon the inner Star and pray that it leads you to the Logos.
