I think I may have touched on this subject briefly before.
One of the things that really annoys me and many other magicians no doubt, are the typical "I'm new to magick" or "I'm new to [such and such a type of magic]" and then there is an email from someone who basically is bone idle lazy, and expects you to do all the work for them. They don't want to do any research of their own, they don't want to look on lists of recommended books for themselves. They also want you to write in an individual email to them, an overview of the theory, practices, how to get started etc.
In times past, I used to do this (way too nice I know), and then would often find I didn't even receive a "thank you"! It's almost as though me, and everyone else they send these emails to, they expect are there just to provide a free public service!
One person I replied to in an email, was new to sigils, and so I wrote in quite a nice concise email, a brief summary of how sigils worked....I didn't even receive a "thanks for your time"!
Recently, I received an email from someone saying they are new to Enochian Magick, and were looking for help, where to get started, books I would recommend etc. I just thought to myself, hey, that's all on my blog, my website, and also if they are bothered to do a google search would find many websites, blogs and books from more knowledgeable, experienced and publicly acclaimed authors than myself. So, NO! I will not do your research for you, if you are serious about Enochian Magick, do what I did, do it yourself you lazy idiot! There is no place in magick for this attitude of: I want this, I want that, I want the other, all wrapped up in a ribbon, but I don't want to give anything or do anything in return!
You do your own research, buy books, or pay your money and take a course by a more experienced magician (in whatever area of magick you are interested in), or you join a magical order for training. Each of these options entails some kind of "cost", either in terms of time, commitment or money. However, you don't just sit back, fire off emails from the "Contact" button on profiles/pages, and expect individual magical training with nothing in return, especially if you can't be bothered to even say "thanks"!
With the advent of the Internet, most of the material and books that in previous ages magicians would have to spend much time and endure personal risk to acquire, is now available at the click of a button. There is no excuse!
So, it's my policy now to simply ignore these kind of emails.
News flash - we all have better things to do with our time!
