Vampire Resources & Recommendations:
In an effort to enhance your knowledge and personal power, I have provided some occultic essentials I feel you need to know. My hope is to provide you with a base of fable-free knowledge from which to excel upon your own personal vampiric or spiritual path. Most importantly, rule number one is to avoid the following:
BEWARE OF CYBER-CRIMINALS ON BONANZA
As many of you are aware, the website Bonanza.com had been hacked three times with my official storefront that became defunct several years ago, The Sorcerer’s Cellar, pirated by a cyber-criminal. I will NEVER have a presence on Bonanza, and any listing or storefront on that hazardous site is NOT MINE. The site itself is poorly run, ethically apathetic, and vulnerable to hacking and counterfeiters, who do so with the blessing of Bonanza until public pressure is placed on the two owners and their tinker toy site to remove the criminal, which they refuse to do.
The two owners, Mike Dorsey and Bill Harding seem incapable and/or unwilling to monitor their own site, even when repeat offenders rear their ugly heads. We urge you to boycott such sites as Bonanza.com who condone, encourage, or allow identity theft and counterfeiting which steals from the public and damages the genuine seller’s reputation. They believe that using the sterile techno-term to describe their site as a “selling platform” they have no obligation to protect the public. THIS SITE RECEIVES A HUGE TWO-THUMBS DOWN. AVOID & BUY ELSEWHERE. *SEE COMPLAINT RATIO ON BBB AND OTHER CONSUMER REVIEWS.
THE FACTS REGARDING THE SORCERER’S CELLAR ON BONANZA
Here are the factual details of my departure from Bonanza in the summer of 2016: A month prior to this I began to get notifications that certain sellers were pirating the copyrighted term, “Full Affinity.” One in particular proved to be especially egregious, the owner of the site, Solomon’s Treasures, Honora Ann Tanasugarn (who has numerous aliases), and who, according to other sources runs two other storefronts on Bonanza. She, along with one Adam Lewis, failed to remove the pilfered term. I therefore sought remedial action from Bonanza and was told a cease and desist order was needed. In compliance I did so, only to find it was ignored; hence, I threatened Bonanza with a lawsuit for their complicity if they did not act. Almost immediately, my site was permanently suspended, while the culprit was allowed to continue along with the pirated term “Full Affinity,” until my attorney began working on a formal lawsuit against Bonanza, at which time, the plagiarism was stopped. They claim neutrality as simply a “platform for sellers.” Indeed, and a platform owned by the ethically blind.
TIP-OFFS TO RIP-OFFS: HOW METAPHYSICAL CON ARTISTS OPERATE
If you’ve surveyed the growing abundance of metaphysical sellers and wondered how you can spot a fraud, then you are not alone. Most people get burned, some badly, by con artists posing as wonder witches from the old country, or whatever. Words are free. Spirit-entities are not. In fact, the more sellers you purchase from the more likely you are to get burned. Moreover, you may be purchasing a spirit-binding block by acquiring two entities who are in conflict with each other. So you lose twice. And guess where those spirit entities get their energy to engage in the conflict? From you. Where else? Once they’re in this realm, they require energy to remain…..duh…..and here you thought they lived off the offerings of peppermint and incense…. And you don’t have a hope in hell of meditating away any such block, another fabulous and oft told fantasy by those who know not what they do. You CANNOT meditate away a block. And you CANNOT force two opposing spirits to coexist because you magically “will” it to be. Put a mouse into a cage with a snake and test your magical will and see what happens. God doesn’t mix humans with vampires in Hell unless he wants them punished. He sure doesn’t do it to for camaraderie. And I believe he knows better than any that fallen angels and unfallen angels don’t get along for Happy Hour in heaven.
BUYING TIP: Never buy two bindings simultaneously from two different sellers. Many spirit blocks arise from this source. And adding yet more spirit bindings only compounds the problem. The more you buy, the worse the block becomes because the more energy has to be tapped from you, even though the strength of each spirit may be akin to a minnow. Many sellers won’t tell you this because they simply don’t know the metaphysical facts of life, or because they want to pass the burden onto you as the creator of the block! And the facts of life are that no seller has a 100% binding rate. If you hear that from a seller you can be assured you’re dealing with either a fraud or an metaphysical egomaniac.
Unfortunately the psychology of most buyers when they purchase a binding is to say to themselves: “I’m not sure this is even real, so I probably would be better off buying a $50 binding in case it’s not.” Too often it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. And although some may be real, how powerful can they be, given the fact that binding a powerful entity requires great expertise and the requisite time to conjure and bind one? Typically, fraudsters counterfeit listings that sound professional because they’re way above their ability level in the first place. Then they jack the prices up to give the appearance of “possessing that oh-so-rare treasure of wondrous magic,” read: The Great Hot Air Illusion.
Another scam is the 1001 succubi on a pendant for only $49.95. This should be so obvious as to be laughable, but it still works to dupe the public. Oh, but they all get along, don’t you know? Show me 1001 people who all get along! It’s a farce. A conjuration requires time, energy, expertise and a bloodline pedigree that cannot be purchased, plus an affiliation to a high-powered spiritual overseer such as Lucifera, Naamah, Hecate, etc. So the buyer ends up paying twice: for a worthless binding that’ll probably never happen, and the time lost in having a powerful entity who wants an equally powerful companion.
Each professional conjuration I perform has a different series of separate protocols: the empowering; the calling; the conjuration; the binding; the spell work, the pledging and conveyance. Each one. Every single time. No exceptions. Add to that the costs of very expensive and oftentimes rare ritual instruments, some of which don’t get paid for until after many bindings, and take just as much expertise to acquire. No legitimate seller is going to charge $50 for what takes between 45 minutes to an hour, if they’re an expert, to perform. If they’re not an expert, it’ll take twice as long and be perhaps only half as effective to boot. What is a wannabe witch and spooky sorcerer to do? Well, copy, paste and repeat. Besides, if you only charge $50 or less, how many people will even bother with a refund request? Just tell them the spirit got lost in Hoboken, but has been spotted at Starbucks asking directions. Yeah, right. Merry meet, while your money departs…
The Vampire Arveda Yoga Meditation Program
An excellent way to enhance your spirit-entity relationship while rejuvenating your own energy, is to practice the Vampire Arveda Yoga program outlined in our book: Vampire Arveda Yoga: The Lost Art of Kundalini Alchemy. This is the perfect adjunct practice designed specifically to enhance the vampiric current in those who have adopted spirit companions of any type. For those who are specifically interested in white-light spirits and are reading this piece out of curiosity, I highly recommend anything produced by Yogi Bhajan, if the right-hand path is your preference. In my late teens I had the privilege of attending a White Tantric workshop hosted by Yogi Bhajan, in which a gong was used to stimulate the chakras into an attunement. The effect produced was sparkling and lively, but the depth and frequency failed to stimulate the vampiric current of my etheric self, the red-rush hunger is for dark drums.
Recent Book Recommendations with Thumbs UP or Down
The following books have been selected as noteworthy due to a number of factors, as expressed to the best of my ability, as to contents and audience. The list may be updated occasionally, as I find time for brief reviews, good or bad, which I hope will serve to further your own spiritual journey.
The following books are recommended (or not) for the reasons included:
Between the Realms, by Boo Newell. Boo is a close personal friend of mine, so I cannot claim impartiality. It is subtitled, What Ghosts Teach Us About Life & Death. In the book, Boo gives firsthand accounts of conversations with the departed who have become earthbound for various reasons. Not all go to the light, and their reasons vary. While the book exceeds 200pp, it reads in one big gulp because of her unique powers, insights and abilities. Boo is able to see and communicate directly with spirits and entities. Boo also does phone readings, and I’ve referred a number of clients to her, all of whom rave about her accuracy and uncanny ability. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND A PHONE READING WITH BOO TO ACCESS YOUR SPIRIT COMPANIONS. You can tell her I sent you, otherwise you’ll be months before reaching her. Her book is available on Amazon or through her website. TWO THUMBS HIGH UP!
The Weiser Field Guide to Vampires: Legends, Practices, and Encounters Old and New, by J.M. Dixon. This is a smallish paperback published in 2009 that can be found on Amazon, Abe Books, and others inexpensively. For it’s small guidebook size, running 190 pages, it is the first one I’d recommend to would-be vamplings. In it you’ll find a tremendous amount of solid information. From the back cover, “From the Hunger to Blood Feeding to how to tell if you are a vampire, this handbook will keep you aware…” It also has a Glossary to acquaint new vamplings with the various associations and vampiric network groups (not all of which may be operational at this time). Highly Recommended. THUMBS UP!
Islam, Arabs, and the Intelligent World of the Jinn, by Amira El-Zein. A masterful background from a scholar who has to date, unquestionably produced the definitive book on the Jinn. Scholarly examination of law, theology, literature, along with the metaphysical and cosmological aspects of Islam, this is the go-to book on the Jinn. A scholarly blending of myth, religion and reality translated for the western reader. Highly Recommended. THUMBS UP!
Vampires Among Us, by Rosemary Ellen Guiley. A well-balanced survey of those who believe, doubt, or are otherwise curious about the appeal of vampires in general. An important corrective for those following the movie-based profiles of vampires. A commendable survey that is prismatic in approach, providing a comprehensive survey in its own abbreviated way. Explodes the difference between those who are merely hemophiles and those who are vampires, and covers the vast difference in between the two in a concise fashion. THUMBS UP
Child Possessed, by David St. Clair. A noteworthy read unique in the documentation of spirit possession, displaying as it does that both benevolent and malevolent spirits can possess a person. This is a true story, based upon extensive public records, of what happened in the small town of Watseka, Illinois, between the years of 1865 and 1878. Mary Rolf, an unassuming 19 year-old girl died suddenly in 1865 under strange circumstances. Stranger still, thirteen years later in 1878, Mary Roff reappeared in the living body of Lurancy Vennum. What happens throughout the book provides a rare glimpse into how easily the physical body can be inhabited by another spirit-body under certain circumstances. Well written as well. Highly recommended. THUMBS HIGH UP!
Eros & Evil, by R.L. Masters, Subtitled, “The Sexual Psychopathology of Witchcraft,” an older text devoted to the mythology and lore of a host of demonic beings with various source books and histories, most of which make for interesting reading and cultic background material. It is well-rounded, and while it must be remembered that some of the material is taken from biased sources such as the church, it remains a unique sourcebook of information that the author has extracted and condensed from ancient sources that remain invaluable in their own right. THUMBS UP!
Graveyard: True Hauntings From an Old New England Cemetery, by Ed & Lorraine Warren. This is an easy to read and fast paced book based upon the further adventures of two demonologists involved in numerous exorcisms, mostly failed. The two are Catholics and bring to bear the typical pagan rosary beads, crucifix, Hail Mary rainbow of pseudo-religious yahooism, and holy water when they’re not busy trying to convince parish priests that demons exist. That said, the entities in their books are far more intriguing than the authors. The narrative is based on the testimony of 28 people. Noteworthy is the wide variety of experiences and several pages of actual spirit-photographs. THUMBS UP!
Advanced Lucid Dreaming: The Power of Supplements, by Thomas Yuschak. A mixed bag of supplements researched by the author, each designed to induce Lucid Dreams and/or Out of Body Experiences. They may or may not work, mostly the effective ones will induce a lucid dream occasionally, and involve the typical alarm-setting sleep disruption pattern needed before taking them. For some this alone is a huge barrier. Otherwise, after a sexual encounter with your beloved vamp spirit in the wee hours, you might want to sample a few of his recommendations since you’re already awake. Results are inconsistent but upon occasion some can take you upon a wild high-def dream blitz. As always, be sure none of the recommendations will interfere with any prescription drugs you may be taking. Neutral to slightly positive Recommendation. Adjust your expectations accordingly. ONE THUMB UP, ONE DOWN
The Women’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets, by Barbara Walker. A massive tome of female-goddess lore and associated mythology. Well over 1100 pages, some illustrations in b/w, including entries posted as you’d find them in a dictionary. Much of the information has been culled from archives that would take a research a decade to compile. Sadly, while there are two pages devoted to the cult of Diana (Lucifera/Nocticula), there is nothing to include her composite persona, either as Lucifera or Nocticula. Still, a worthy addition to anyone’s mythological or occult reference library. Highly recommended. THUMBS UP!
Daemonolater’s Guide to Spirit Keeping & Spirit Vessels, by S. Connolly & Andrieh Vitimus. A slim 47 page volume giving S. Connolly’s viewpoint on spirit-vessels and spirit keeping. Her cheerful opening begins, “So you bought a Daemon King, Prince, Duke etc off of eBay or some website! Congratulations. You just got ripped off.” Of course, this assumes she has surveyed every buyer of every seller worldwide who purchases online. I know of other sellers, including myself, who sell genuine bindings because clients tell me of them, although they may be the minority. I offer a 30-day money back guarantee to assure a buyer that if the binding doesn’t happen, their money is refunded. That’s the real world. Connolly’s world is black and white with no known exceptions.
More pleasantries follow. For example, on pg 27, she states: “Don’t be an arrogant jackass and sell Daemons on the Internet. Even if you think it’s funny (???) or just trying to make bank on the noobs, Christians, and wanna-be’s, just don’t. From a Daemonolater’s point-of view – its sacrilege! (to whom???) From a magician’s point of view it’s shady (why???) as hell and screams, “That person is a fraud and a charlatan. Or perhaps just a douche.” In response, first of all, I have yet to find anyone selling spirit-entities online for fun, or because its somehow a sacrilege (to whom? Jesus? the Devil? The Pope perhaps.) Because her diatribe is so heavy-handed it’s hard to take seriously. The review was needed because the title suggests that it will be informative, balanced, and fact-based, not a fascist rant on everyone who dares sell a demon binding online. BOTH THUMBS DOWN!
Songs Sung from Vampire Shadows:
Some personal favorites from “non-vampiric” sources.
Natural by Imagine Dragons (You Tube) Lyrics: “That’s the price you pay. Leave behind your heartache, cast away. Just another product of today.

BOTH THUMBS UP!
Twist in My Sobriety, by Tanita Tikaram (You Tube) “look, my eyes are just holograms.

BOTH THUMBS WAY UP!
A Thousand Years, by Sting (You Tube) “I may be numberless, I may be innocent, I may know many things, I may be ignorant, or I could ride with kings and conquer many lands, or win this world at cards and let it slip my hands. I could be cannon food, destroyed a thousand times, reborn as Fortune’s child to judge another’s crimes….I have but one belief…..I still love you…” Sung with heart and soul as only Sting can… capturing the haunted soul of a vampire’s heart…bravo!…..BOTH THUMBS UP!
