How Not To Do It

Yesterday Jason Miller put up a post about a reader who found success with love magick through the methods outlined in his latest book, The Sorcerer's Secrets. Jason makes the excellent point that overcoming your own fear of rejection is one of the best places to begin this sort of magical work, and that for this particular reader doing so proved quite effective.

In this case he recognized that his major problem was fear of rejection, and using the "Summoning of the Seducer" ritual, and the meditations on rejection he got over his fear and started approaching women.

Well, it seems that the universe craves balance, in that today I came across this article which clearly demonstrates how NOT to deal with rejection. It also shows how not to use magick in order to be successful in love - as a threat.

The victim called police Christmas Day and said the 42-year-old man had been calling since 5 a.m. the day before, estimating she'd received 110 calls on her cell phone.

"The victim claims the suspect to be harassing her because she refuses to date him," the report states. "The victim stated that the suspect has told her he is going to put witchcraft on her, beat her up and blow up her home."

I cannot begin to explain how appalled I am at the abject stupidity of this guy. Is there any possible twisted alternative universe in which this strategy could ever be a good idea? Let's say this poor woman agrees to date him because she's scared to death - does he honestly expect such a situation to produce anything other than a horrible relationship?

I really want to know what kind of "witchcraft" this guy studies so I'll know to stay away from anyone working the same tradition. It obviously rots the mind, whatever it is.

UPDATE: While we're on the subject of how not to be successful in approaching women, here's another strategy I came across today that's pretty much certain to fail - go out to a Twilight movie and bite somebody!

Erin Westrate says the 30 or 40-year-old man [was] sitting in front of her at the 5:00pm showing of New Moon on Friday. She says he was acting creepy from the movies' opening scene.

"Every so often if I said something or my friend said something he would lean back and make a sexual comment that was very unnecessary and not needed," says Erin.

Once the movie was over she tried to leave the theater but the line to leave was slow.

Erin then says he grabbed her by the back of the hair and pulled her down and bit her on the neck. The bite did not break the girl's skin.

It just goes to show that there are plenty of abusive creeps in the world, and most of them are also unbelievably stupid.

"An' it harme none", anyone?

More then likely he is just a abusive character who have not seen anything resembling light which could help him become honestly interested in the 'craft'. Hopefully he will learn the error of his ways, sooner rather then later.

Dude, beating chicks up and blowing up their houses was gonna be in my next book. Now you went and spoiled it.

It is followed by my patented "excuse me, but does this washcloth smell like chloroform to you?" opener.

So Jason, would that be the "Summoning the Abuser" ritual?
