When I quit my previous employment, it set off some rather unfortunate chain of events – leading to the point where I almost lost my/our house. With some street smarts and some good old hustlin, we managed to stave that off but again – another “crisis” hit us and with our last run in, we were pretty much dry on what resources we can get and we were basically backed up against a wall.
Time to do some magick.
As a Strategic Sorcery alumni, one of the principles that an SS practitioner follows is that “Emergency magick is BAD magick”. I was never a big fan of that rule, to be honest, and I tried to follow it as much as possible but even as the course says, your best-laid plans will go awry and you will eventually need to bust it out.
I’ve been practicing sorcery so, in these instances like these, I can affect my microcosm to my advantage. Like in martial arts, most people don’t train to fight every day; you do all of that katas, all of that sparring, all of the training – just for that 30sec instance that you actually use it. And oh baby, it was one of those days.
We were given an ultimatum and if we didn’t follow it, we would lose the house. This happened a couple of days ago and I tried to keep a calm, cool, collected persona but failed. Eventually, I snapped out of it and figured today was d-day so I planned out my strategy. My plan was to hit all 3 levels with every type of technique I was best at and hope to Jebus that it’ll pass through.
- I chose to use St Cajetan again as my damage dealer, he will be tanking all the probabilities to ensure that every possible outcome will go my way. I ended up using a customized rite from a couple of influences and I asked him to help with the ultimatum, the house and me getting a job.
- When I did my Sigil Cluster Bomb recently, I added extra variables in there that would add the help I can use today (whew, a little preparation pays off).
- I was buffing my whole family yesterday with the element of Earth/Jupiter for some extra juice on this endeavor.
- Today, while the family spokesperson was talking to the bank personnel and the administrator who was dealing with our case – I was buffing her again with the same elements in real time.
We got what we wanted and our house is safe and I don’t have to become homeless. This was such a high-wire act, which I enjoy at times, that I will be learning this lesson to heart. You gotta do what you gotta do but if this keeps up, I’m gonna grow gray hairs – again.
