Re: How to make hypnosis work

Stop doing it. Many people give up one behavior for another. ... don't hesitate to replace them with an equally obsessive but healthier pursuit. If I only knew exactly what it was that I were doing I would stop it! That is part of the problem and I have suggestions I - III for it (but no proof). Th...

Re: Modern Magick: Twelve Lessons in the High Magickal Arts?

You don't need High or Ceremonial Magick for an attraction spell. Low Magic (or practical magic as some call it) is better suited for this. Can you recommend where to find some? You don't need magic, you just need conversational skills. Practice remembering people's names. No one likes it when some...

Any reason is a good reason to seek a spiritual path. I have that book but haven't read it yet. I'm also fairly new to this, and it does come well recommended and it certainly seems (from a little skimming) to be a good book.

Re: What would you consider to be Lesser Black Magick?

Re: It feels like my life is over.

As dark and pointless as the future seems, it does get better. Depression is a heavy stone, but it is within your power to lay it down. Magick is a long haul deal. It doesn't turn on "like magic" but given time it will bear fruit. If you need to take some time away from it, so be it. If art is rewar...

Re: How to make hypnosis work

One more thing. "hypnotherapy" is two things. It's hypnosis, and it's therapy. Rarely do you find someone who is equally skilled at both. I'm confident in my hypnotic skill. Therapy, not so much. That's why I like to do "guided mediations" and the like. I help people meditate. I'll help someone stop...

Re: Are some forms of sexual activity spiritually wrong?

"Extreme" sexual pursuits aren't spiritually wrong in and of themselves, but they can create a truly negative spiritual environment. Case in point would be promiscuity, all by itself it's just a lot of sex. Put into the context of someone who has family around them who are hurt or endangered by it, ...

Re: Dealing with built in belief structures

To really alter your own belief, it is possible to do so through hypnosis. Possible, but only if you find a hypnotist who is willing and able to do it. I want to digress on hypnotists for a minute. I first learned hypnosis about 20 years ago and only practiced it a little (I used to group induce kar...

Is that the type of information that you were looking for when you asked about curses? Sort of, but not entirely.
