Alrighty, prepare yourself...its an interesting one.
If you go on www.uspsychic.com, under power vault at the bottom it has "books of shadows". I have the dragon one, it was a gift. Problem is, the shit doesn't work.
Uh..... well, yeah. Did you see the website? That's like being offended that it didn't work when someone told you to click your heels together three times and say "there's no place like home." No one should have expected it to work in the first place.(there, I got it, so for the rest of this thread let's be constructive!)
However, I know the ability to write things and having them happen is real and I indeed know the dangers. I'm not gonna turn myself into Oprah Whinfry with my own TV show, fame, etc. I just want to fix a few things in my life and then never use it again. No limits on it. Is there a certain way to right it or a sigil/symbol to draw on the page??
First of all, there is no quick fix. Anyone who told you there was lied. Even quick fixes have problems that are usually bigger than the ones the fix solved in the first place. I don't mean super magical Charmed kinds of problems, I mean winning the lottery creates tax problems which leads to debt problems, etc. Real life stuff.
That said, yes there is a correct way, but I don't think it works like you're hoping it does. There are multiple correct ways, actually, some are more long and complicated than others. Some are more direct and easy, but don't work quite as quickly, others work quickly but take a long time to execute (skinning a calf at a particular time and day to make your own consecrated parchment is step ONE, impractical if you aren't a farmer, or know someone who is... and will assist you in skinning a calf for your 'satan magic').
Look in to sigilization, austin osman spare, chaos magick (with the K). You might consider making a more general study of magic and broadening your understanding of what magic will do for you right now. The primary thing in your way is you - write whatever you want however you want and if you still haven't dealt with the internal elements that want to sabotage you, then mostly your magic will fail no matter what lengths you go to. If you can hand produce and procure your own parchment, quills, inks, candles, metals, crafting tools, ritual space and altar, garb, etc.... then likely your magic will work because you've already shown yourself that you can accomplish your will depsite obstacles and difficulties. So when you do magic your self says, "Okay, well, I can accomplish my will when I want to so..."
Londa Marks is a crook, apparently. 3000.00+ for a custom spell? Give me three thousand dollars and some blood and i will cast you a spell that will most definitely work for you. I would have to come up with materials to spend half of that on one spell. She's either rolling in it or very disappointed. I mean, you get A CANDLE (or 9 candles) after paying for some of these spells. Not even a whole kit! I mean, for 3k I'll at least send you a human skull set with a solid gold emblem.
Your name and birthday is not enough to do magic for you. Nor is telling you that your barnes and noble journal (yeah, I mean it, they sell for like 30$ retail, who knows what wholesale price she gets them for) is magical going to make it so. If you make no personal investment (worrying about whether your money is well spent or not is not that) then she can't do magic for you and neither can anyone else.
So welcome to the forums, have a look around, I hope you learn something here - maybe it was a happy thing that you encountered this fraud and landed here.
