Book Excerpt: Financial Sorcery by Jason Miller

Jason Miller, author of the book Financial Sorcery, stopped by to share with us an excerpt from his book.



Book Excerpt of Financial Sorcery

by Jason Miller


The first thing most people think about in conjunction with wealth magic is the desire to be “rich.” Most people don’t have a clear idea of what this means, and those who do typically tell me that what they want is to have enough money that they never have to think about it again. I know a few people who are what many people would call rich, and I can tell you that all of them think about money. A lot.


As I pointed out in The Sorcerer’s Secrets, terms such as rich and wealthy are relatively meaningless. The truth of the matter is that on a global scale, almost everyone who reads this book is rich. According to the World Bank Development Research Group, anyone making more than $47,500 a year is in the top 1 percent of income earners on planet Earth. If you make more than $25,500 a year you are in the top 10 percent of income earners. The bottom 85 percent earns less than $2,185 a year. Think about that for a moment. This means that half the people on planet Earth live on less than $800 a year.


I know you’re thinking that $25,000 may be in the top 10 in the world but it’s still pretty poor for America, where the federal poverty line is currently listed as $10,787 for an individual. But let me remind you that even the poorest people in America or Western Europe have access to amenities that the poor in most of the world do not. The roads, sanitation systems, plumbing, and access to charitable services and social safety nets are things that the bottom 50 percent will never see. The simple idea of potable water coming out of a faucet is a foreign idea to much of the planet. The guy flipping burgers at your local diner may live close to the poverty line in America, but that still puts him among the top 10 percent wealthiest people on the planet, and his life reflects it.


Am I saying that you should just be happy with what you have and not strive for greater wealth? No! Most definitely not. I am all for you attaining greater and greater levels of wealth. If your desire is to be rich enough to own your own jet, then I say go for it! My point is simply this: You can’t do magic with merely the aim of being rich. If you summon Jupiter and ask him to make you wealthy, he is going to look at you funny and remind you that you are probably already in the top 10 percent, if not the top 1 percent. If, however you ask him to help you reach specific goals, and you present him with a detailed plan, he is probably going to be a lot more helpful. You need perspective about where you are and where you want to be, as well as a plan to get from one to the other.

About the author:

Jason Miller’s interest in the occult was sparked by a series of psychic experiences he had when he was just five years old. He took up the practice of both High Magick and Rootworking while still a teenager, learning how ceremonial and folk magic can work together and complement each other.

He has been involved with a number of magical orders and pagan groups over the years, always seeking the quintessence of the art that lies behind specific traditions. He has traveled to New Orleans to study Hoodoo, Europe to study Witchcraft and Ceremonial Magick, and Nepal to study Tantra. Miller is an initiated Tantrika in the Nyingma and Bon lineages of Tibet as well as a member of the Chthonic Ouranian Temple and the Sangreal Sodality.

He is the author of Protection & Reversal Magick: A Witch╩╣s Defense Manual, The Sorcerers Secrets: Strategies in Practical Magick, and the Strategic Sorcery Training course. Miller lives with his wife and children on the New Jersey shore, where he practices and teaches magick professionally.
