Hi there!

I was hoping someone could tell me of a spell/entity/ritual that can help you get a job you want, or any job for that matter.

Little backstory first: I entered a contest that, should I ever win, would land me a place in a journalism course that, eventually, would get me a job inside the news network that's making the contest. Should I lose or something, I also want to apply directly to the network with a normal resumé or something, but I was wondering if it's possible to make a ritual or spell that could help me get more consideration for this contest (or, if it's easier or better, just a ritual/spell that could get me a job in this news network directly, outside the contest).

So far, I've just asked for Jupiter for help, but I've just seen results in other areas, not so much in this particular petition. That's why I was hoping for a bit more powerful spell that could enhance the possibilities of getting this job - or any other job I've applied for, for that matter.

Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated! :)

Any kind of help ? Okay...

I believe your endeavor to be pathetic and delusional. Which is perfectly understandable given that Darwinism is an insatiable Beast forever consuming the Weak, and in the process the ever lingering cries of the less fortunate Whos' Whimpers resonate and propagate within this Harsh Reality as they are in the process of being Devoured !

This World that We live in was created with Rules ! Divine Rules ! That are not to be circumvented on a whim ! If that was the case then everyone would be doing it, and it would be total Chaos, a fiasco !

These type of inquiries are of the lowest form of the Aspirant Occultist ! You win the contest by using your God Given creativity and intellect if you have any, otherwise, you don't ! Plain and simple !

Your writing and attitude appears adolescent, and should be given some attention before consideration of engaging in such a Contest of any substantial caliber as the aforementioned ! So...

Good luck !

No spell is going to get you a job if you don't already have the abilities in the mundane to be considered for the job. It might get you in the door but it won't keep you there and if your calling upon the divine to aid you and the divinity is giving it their fair consideration they probably won't waste their time. Most would say that falls under the idea of doing what is best for us not what is always in our best wishes.

So if you really want that type job then you have to move in the mundane yourself. Stop wanting to apply and just apply to the Network. Get your foot in the door and see what is there. Many times employers higher from within. Many businesses and corporations have in-house opportunities for advancement only open to their own employees. But you have to get in the door first.

If your serious, then take courses that are available to you that might not be accredited but offered by accredited schools on-line or locally. Again many schools offer those type courses as adult learning courses at no cost or little cost and focus them in specific areas. It shows you are trying and potentially gives you both knowledge and experience but also contacts in the area your trying to get into. Some of them also come with internships at various news organisations for instance.

Sitting on the backside and casting a spell, doing a ritual / ceremony is going to get you nothing because basically your putting nothing into it. Doesn't matter whether you are using your own purpose, energy and focus or calling upon a divinity and asking they do all the work the results will pretty much be the same. Yes you might be lucky and have some scatter effect results where other possibilities come your way or a divinity may push you towards something but it doesn't mean anything if you don't take those options either.

However, the biggest thing is you have to prepare in the mundane just as much as you prepare in the magical to make things manifest as you desire and want them to. Preparation, focus, concentration and planning are required in both sphere's for success. We call upon the divine or ourselves for action via our magics and they demand action of / from us upon the material for it to manifest. Failure on either side results in failure on both sides.

As to which divinity figure to call upon that depends. The reason I say depends is because it's not just about getting a job but also about how you are recognizing your results of getting that job. If you think of getting the "Job" as a "WIN" then you call upon a divinity that you'd think of as winning and bestowing victory. Yet if you think of it as "Success" in say an endeavor or business then you'd call upon a different divinity figure who you equate with that. But suppose you see it as something to do with operation of the social order and city operation then you might call upon say Athena. So it greatly depends upon how you view things as to whom you would call upon.

That doesn't even touch upon the relationship you have with your own divinity figure assuming you actually worship a divine figure. If you do then regardless many would call upon that figure of devotion for their backing and success. They are your divinity and would be the source for you to call upon to aid and our guide you in your lifely endeavors. So again it is up to the individual and how they relate to the divine as to who they would call upon.

Then on the other hand many practitioners use their own "Energy" and call upon no one but their own force of will to manifest their will and desire to influence things.

Oh, I see. I just wanted to ask because I have read somewhere that it was possible to simply enhance the opportunities of getting a job through a spell or ritual, but if it isn't possible to get a specific one that will guarantee a job post, then alright. I do understand what you meant, so I'll think about it.

Thanks for the reply! :)

Hahaha... Yeah, you're right. I actually kinda thought about most of you said for a good while - trust me, for a really good while -, but then I asked myself "Is it possible to make things easier? To just enhance the chances or anything? Would it work too?", and that's why I decided to post this question in here, just to see if there was a possibility of getting a specific divine aid for this kind of things.

But yeah, I actually see where are you coming from. It makes perfect sense. I will actually try to make things simple, and accept the results, no matter what. I just wanted to know if it was possible to make things FAR simpler through divine aid, but if it isn't possible, then oh wells, hahaha!

Thanks a lot for your help! It did give me lots of insight! :)

Oh, I did hear about this too. I did read that there are specific figures for specific areas, that's why I wanted to ask if there's a specific one for my plight. It's interesting that it's possible to simply use one's energy, though! That one I didn't know of!
It would be interesting to try it on my case, but I think you're right about what you said earlier, so I will stick to that in the meantime.

Truly thanks for your words and time! :)

That was a very intelligent response, almost as if you saw right through what I wrote, and deflected it ! Although quite honestly, I just felt like writing something at the time, and it was nothing personal.

Speaking of Contests, there was talk of an Occult Writing Contest being offered by a couple Members here not too long ago. Although the circumstances are unpredictable, to say the least.

I did consider entering said Contest, but most of the People that read what I write either don't know what the fuck I am talking about, or don't care. So it seems rather pointless, and most likely a large waste of my time in the end. Plus I don't like the idea of Vulgar Persons judging the Scribe Of The Gods !

Anyway, I do have my own Blog where I write frequently and am getting tons of Views so I keep doing it, and of course I like writing. I force myself to write a little something whenever I have an Occult Ritual, even if it is mundane, but I do always try to come up with a Mystical bit as well. Which usually isn't too difficult for me in a Ritualistic Setting.

So nice meeting you, and once again good luck with your Writing, and future Job Prospects !

:-)

Hi Yuna92, welcome to the forum.

>>I was hoping someone could tell me of a spell/entity/ritual that can help you get a job you want,

>>or any job for that matter.

---

The thing is, that those are two different questions. Bear with me while I give you a very short cerebral introduction before I will add a suggestion for a ritual at the end.

The first question is a rather complex equation between external and internal factors. Those are "wants" and "needs". To make it short, the "wants" -- that is stuff which comes from the outside. It is not necessarily something which will make you grow as a person or spiritually. Even to the contrary. It really depends on how strong you "want" this something. If this takes over you can attain almost anything... and nothing at all. Here it really depends on how much you are connected to your higher self and how much it will throw shit in your way so you will not get dissolved in this obsession.

That what you seem to "want", what is poured into you from the outside (smart phone, car, mansion, gilded denture), maybe will lead you into a different direction than that what you "need", that what you are really longing for inside yourself. If this makes any sense.

I had so many encounters with people who asked me how to make money so easy or get this/that job/girlfriend/boyfriend/whatnot with a small ritual (and without having done anything beforehand). And it almost never works out the way they intended or visualized, because in most cases there is always a discrepancy in this wand/need complex.

IF (and that is a huge one) the intent is pure and the layers surrounding this wish are already eroded this will guide you where you need to be (to get the job person whatever) very fast. Same if what your want and need is one and the same (which is very rare but it can occur).

Anyway, rant mode off. The easiest way is sigilization. Go to youtube and use "grant morrison sigil magick", he can explain it faster than me. I just checked and there are three or four results. One is about 45 mins, that is his whole panel at a con. You can watch it but there is no need. The others are about 8mins long, that is it. Can't give a link because of copyright reasons. That is about the easiest route you can go.

There is no need to do more for what you want to do. Because if you are ready, that is enough. If there is still baggage you can do magick for 20 years and not get what you "want" (because doing any kind of spiritual work will more erode such tendecies than harden them). In that situation you will be much better of with what has already been said and invest your time in actually sharpen a specific skill.

A little advise at the end, it also has been said, if you do this it will give you a chance, being where you need to be that right time, a foot into the door. If you have no skill in backing it up you will not get any further.

Hahaha, don't worry! Despite the tone you used (and which I am glad to know that it wasn't for real, hahaha!), you also had a valid point, and that's something that I shouldn't ignore just because of the harsh words you used; it is truly something I will incorporate into my daily life. As a matter of fact, thanks to you and to monsnoleedra, I did consider for real looking for a more specialized course for my case, just to enhance my chances in getting jobs not only in the news network I mentioned, but also in other ones.
I truly need to take care both in the magick AND the mundane planes!

Oh, there was truly a writing contest in here? Huh... I am not sure if I'd enter it (I am too shy to share my personal creative work!), but if they ever publish the works of those who entered, I'd love to check them, just to see what do magick users tend to write about. I love to think that there are prevalent styles among certain communities of people which reflects their culture/psyche/soul/whatever you call it, hahaha! It's something fascinating!
(...You might have guessed I am a bit of the literature type, huh...)

By the way, I checked your blog and I found it interesting! In my defense - and surely of those who didn't understand your writings, hahaha - I've yet to study some things (for example, the Kabbalah; that's why your post about the Abyss was a bit obscure for me!). Still, I hope I can understand more stuff in the future so I can also give my opinion on your and other texts too!

Again, thanks again for all your insight and feedback!
:)

Hi, UraTriUra! Thanks a lot for your post!

First of all, I apologize if my post was this confusing because of the two questions. I was a bit aware that those two things - the "wanted" or "any" job matter - were different topics, but I wasn't sure how to phrase it at the time, so I just wrote if there was a way for one of the two ways, shouldn't be there one for both altogether.

Also, I deeply thank you for your insight about this matter. I tend to reflect on it more often than not, actually; in fact, precisely because I chose a "want" path in the past that took me to a rather...complicated situation, I realized I needed to think more in the "need" path and I've tried to stay in there now (or well, figure out which one is it too, hehehe). The thing with this topic was precisely if I could create some sort of matrimony between my want and my need - I (personally think I) need a more fruitful job right now, for example, but I was also hoping it could be a precise thing I wanted, which in this case was a job inside a news network. (I want to highlight that I personally think, by the way, because now I do wonder now what is truly what my life needs right now!)

Good thing about spirituality is that wants tend to decrease with proper time and practice, of course, althought trust me: what I hope mostly right now is just to find a better job, which I hoped could be of my like and expertise. Also, one of the reasons I wrote the "or any job for that matter" was because I thought of other people too (see, I also wanna help people find jobs). I wanted to make a global question for the case of other people, but I apologize for making it far too confusing! I should have explained that a bit more! :(

But anyways, thanks for telling me about Grant Morrison! I will search for his videos and check the sigil magick you mentioned!
And truly thanks for your words! They were very helpful! I did consider my case much more differently thanks to them!
:lol:

@yuna92(obviously)

Thank You ! You are very faithful to your responders; appear to be quite motivated, and have a Wonderful Personality and Brilliant Energy that radiates about your writing ! So I have no doubt you will be successful in whatever your endeavor and dazzle your spectators !

The Occult for me is more of a Mystical Endeavor than a Magical one at the Present Time, but of course there is also much Magic to be observed within the bounds of the Mystical as it is permeated by it, and once the Mundane has been transcended the Path leading to Origins is Illuminated by it, so ultimately there is no escaping it !

Yes, I believe the best way to accomplish Goals/Dreams is to make the most of our Sentient Vehicle and our Sphere of Influence(Microscosm, Spirit, or Will)that is attached to it, and infuses it !

P.S. The Blog on this Site is Old, and we stopped using it because it was malfunctioning. I have a current one of OccultForum.org, where the second half of it was given more care and consideration as I realized how many People were actually viewing it !

It's been a pleasure ! Take care now !

Awww, thanks a lot for your words! :lol:
I'll also check OccultForum.org and see how things are there! Now I am intrigued...

Thanks a lot for everything, Spida!

So have you submitted any resumes or done anything yet? It's been 14 days by my math since this thread was put up which in the business world is two weeks. That's rather old for most resumes, especially if there have been no inquiries or follow-ups of any sort.

I've been submitting resumes everywhere since some months ago, actually, but so far, I've gotten no news from any of the places I've been to, sadly :(
However, I did think a lot about what you said about accreditation, and I think that's something I should focus on instead. That's why I've decided on getting online journalism courses to get some more proper training on this field. I always thought that my Literature MA would help me get job, at the very least, inside newspapers, but now I am thinking that I need something that outright spells "JOURNALISM" in my resumé; my major, I've discovered, helps me in nothing, at all.
I am now saving some money from the jobs I am doing (I work as a freelancer right now) so I can pay courses from legit and recognised places. Once I get at least some important accreditation, I plan on trying my luck again. And maybe, after that, I'll also try some of the suggestions all of you, guys, have given along this thread.
For the time being, I just know that I need to improve my resumé as soon as possible, especially because, as you said, no ritual or magick will work as long as I remain as a Literature graduate <_<

I snagged this from the Theoi Project.

Orphic Hymn 28 to Hermes (trans. Taylor) (Greek hymns C3rd B.C. to 2nd A.D.) :
"To Hermes, Fumigation from Frankincense. Hermes, draw near, and to my prayer incline, messenger of Zeus, and Maia's son divine; prefect of contests, ruler of mankind, with heart almighty, and a prudent mind. Celestial messenger of various skill, whose powerful arts could watchful Argos kill. With winged feet 'tis thine through air to course, O friend of man, and prophet of discourse; great life-supporter, to rejoice is thine in arts gymnastic, and in fraud divine. With power endued all language to explain, of care the loosener, and the source of gain. Whose hand contains of blameless peace the rod, Korykion (Corycion), blessed, profitable God. Of various speech, whose aid in works we find, and in necessities to mortal kind. Dire weapon of the tongue, which men revere, be present, Hermes, and thy suppliant hear; assist my works, conclude my life with peace, give graceful speech, and memory's increase.
Ars est celare artem.

I've been submitting resumes everywhere since some months ago, actually, but so far, I've gotten no news from any of the places I've been to, sadly :(
However, I did think a lot about what you said about accreditation, and I think that's something I should focus on instead. That's why I've decided on getting online journalism courses to get some more proper training on this field. I always thought that my Literature MA would help me get job, at the very least, inside newspapers, but now I am thinking that I need something that outright spells "JOURNALISM" in my resumé; my major, I've discovered, helps me in nothing, at all.
I am now saving some money from the jobs I am doing (I work as a freelancer right now) so I can pay courses from legit and recognised places. Once I get at least some important accreditation, I plan on trying my luck again. And maybe, after that, I'll also try some of the suggestions all of you, guys, have given along this thread.
For the time being, I just know that I need to improve my resumé as soon as possible, especially because, as you said, no ritual or magick will work as long as I remain as a Literature graduate <_<

Ah, the college major that seems to do nothing for you. I can relate to that mine is History and Sociology. They hold little meaning in the business world other than as a college degree and ones ability to show you have the dedication and focus to set a goal and achieve it. Yet in the academic / education world they tend to be a dime a dozen for the most part but can get you in the door to teaching positions many times though you still often have to qualify in other fields to teach. A horrible catch-22 scenario that is expensive. Especially the higher one goes in the degree pursuit. I have a BA and was going after my MA but was in the Military so couldn't get the required classes overseas. Started working on a BS and got most of my credit hours for that but eventually that got pushed to the side and never finished it or the MA as life got in the way. Don't get me wrong, I don't regret it as wife and sons held a higher priority for me. Then eventually injuries I suffered in the military took their toll and finished it off.

Don't let life get in the way of your dream if possible. But don't cling so tightly to a dream that you loose life either.

I know I am part ignorant here but journalism covers quite a few niches I think. That's even if you restrict it to newsprint only. So if your submitting a resume it seems you still have to be rather either extremely broad in your scope or very narrow in scope for job selections. But it seems one skill set that would be in high demand would be word processing and knowledge of various program sets. I recall I went to work after the military in an office environment and one of the questions I ran into was what computer operations was I familiar with. Sort of surprised them I was already familiar with a number of the system's they used already so they didn't need to train me on them. All that was required was to train me on how they used them, I already had all the basic knowledge.

That might be something you could do, try to learn the type of systems being used. Especially unique or unusual systems that maybe used industry wide. Make yourself a better qualified choice.
