SUCCESS MAGICK; THE HIDDEN POWER OF ENOCHIAN RITUALS - DAMON BRAND
There is no simple ritual to make you succeed overnight. It is a system of magic. It's more than just a list of rituals to solve problems. You integrate a successful path into your life.
The great secrets of magic were handed down to a brilliant mathematician in the 16th century. After that, magic was locked away for many years and then found and shared in secret. Occultists began to unlock these secrets to the point where they became practical. The methods described in this book are based on the study and exploration of a lifetime of success, combined with the wisdom of the Enochian Angels.
Whether you are tired of struggle, fighting against competitors, finding it difficult to start or complete a project, unsure of what to do with your life, or struggling to reach your destination, this book presents a form of magic that can help you realize your dreams.
Whatever your age or experience, and whatever you've experienced before, it's never too early or too late to succeed. From this moment on, you can choose the life you've always wanted. With this magic, you can compress time, improve your wealth and open up opportunities in a way that cannot be done without magic.
Enochian Magic reveals an underlying power in the universe that can bring you the success you desire. This book shows every step you must take. You don't need any special magic equipment or skills. All you need is a private space where you can perform magic.
Centuries ago, in a strange and fascinating set of circumstances, angels revealed a coded magic system to Dr. John Dee, a friend and advisor to Queen Elizabeth I. This secret magic was nearly taken by the flames of the Great Fire of London. It survived and was slowly recovered, examined, explored and experimented with.
Enochian's Magick is no longer a historical curiosity but the essence of practical magic. Give it your attention, and it can open you up to a life of success.
It's true that Success Magick is rather intriguing and that we want to try to apply its methods just out of curiosity to see if it works and if success smiles at us, then we're also a little afraid that it's just another crazy theory for sect integration purposes that will use this book as a bible.
The book Animal Farm raises interesting topics that affect our society today and seems to be illustrated in a very educational and philosophical way.
Whether it is the story of wanderers in Of Mice and Men or of autism in the curious incident of the dog in the night time these books seem to have a moral and depth to the open-mindedness they may imply.
It's an obvious favourite for The Eyes of Darkness simply because we love thrillers and we already want to know the ending.
