These are questions that were asked about the techniques employed in my three servitor books. I hope that my reply helps to answer questions that some of you might be having.

Hello John,

I have read the first two books and am nearing the end of the third book on servitors. You’re books are very well said with simple language and easy to understand concepts. Your examples had me laughing at myself a few times. It was like you were speaking to me directly. You’ve helped me to see the laws of manifestation in a different way. Like many of your examples, I was finding frustration and beginning to think “The Secret” was BS. I could not maintain a positive mind set 24/7 as much as I tried. I will re-approach it now with a slightly different perspective now. I also greatly appreciate the fact that your eBooks are very reasonably priced. I get the feeling that you are more interested in helping than turning a profit and it’s why I decided to buy three of your books. I usually do not do such things at all with “internet gurus”. I’ve grown weary of people making money off peoples need for spiritual answers. Thank you for sharing your personal wisdom with the world. I h
ope to p
ay it forward one day.

I wanted to read all your books before attempting servitor creation. As I near the end of the third book, I find I have many questions and need some clarification. Here’s my list of questions:

1) Does distance matter?
(i.e. if I live in Florida and someone I wish to help with a servitor is in Australia, does it take time for the servitor to travel there or is it instant? Will distance affect the power or effectiveness of the servitor to do it’s job? Will the distance affect my ability to charge it?)

Yes and no. Now right off the bat we start off with a rather dubious answer and I’m sorry for that. The thing that you must understand though is that from a mental perspective, and from a greater reality perspective, there is no such thing as space (or time).
For the sake of brevity and more concise and to the point answers, I will keep it simple. Generally a person’s servitor is affected by distance in that the farther that they have to go, the more that energy has to be expended in order to have a more cohesive (powerful). This then answers the question simply by stating that farther means more effort, so yes distance matters.
But this effort that you output in order to have your servitor affect someone else who is far away is not expended because of physical distance, because space is a psychological construct that we impose on ourselves and something that servitors are not affected by unless we believe that they should be affected.  When it comes to servitors then, try to think of space as a psychological construct, as opposed to a physical phenomenon because from a mental perspective, and from a greater reality perspective, there is no such thing as space or time (sorry to repeat myself but that is an important point). As such, there is no difference between a servitor affecting someone next to you in Florida or affecting someone halfway across the world in Australia; the barriers imposed on it are imposed by you.

Since it should be the case that we should do our best at whatever we engage in, creating the best servitor that you can fixes distance problems. In creating a servitor to affect something or someone close or far away, what is most important is your focus; that is, how clearly you can see your servitor as a real entity, how cohesive it is and how well you have commanded it to do its job.
The short answer is, and remember this because it will apply to other questions that you have asked, how much do you believe in the power of your servitor.

Belief seems like an etheric thing that could not be powerful enough to affect solid reality. And yet if you believe that your servitor is before you then you will see it, if you believe that your servitor bumped into you then you feel it, and if you believe that your servitor has the power to go to Australia to help someone you love then it will; in direct relation to how much you believe that it can.
The fact that a belief is a psychological/internal ACTION, does not make it any less a ‘real’ in what we consider to be the objective world. What we call belief is in really a highly focused and concentrated burst of attention and psychic energy that manifests (for lack of better words) a  physical event or object over what we consider time (which is as much an illusion as is space remember). A belief can and does rewire your very physical brain. A belief is a psychic act. A belief is real. Beliefs create objective reality.
Make a strong and detailed servitor using the charging techniques I have outlined through the manipulation of your belief and attention. If you do this as best you can then distance and time become irrelevant.  Explore your feelings,; do you believe in the power of your servitor? If no then change it to yes using the techniques outlined.
   
2) Does time matter?
(Can one send a servitor to a past event and diminish its impact on the present/future?)
(Can one send a servitor to a possible future event and bring back information/advice/guidance on how best to achieve that event or avoid it?)

Yes and Yes. I hope my reply to question one answers this question generally. Use your creativity here; a type of servitor advisor would be good for the latter problem.
3) Can a servitor be used to assist in lucid dreams?
(Such as setting a trigger, “When I am dreaming you will let me know I am dreaming.”)

Yes. Ask your servitor to meet you in your dreams, when you see him, his presence will wake you inside your dream. Patience is key in any kind of dream-work.
4) Can one give additional functionality to an existing servitor?
(Such as creating a servitor for home protection, but later adding invisibility or guarding to it, such as walking to the car and wanting to not be noticed.)

You can if you want; your creativity is your only limit. But remember what I have said about schizophrenia in your servitor, if you add to it try to keep the in line with what its original function has been.
5) On the same line of thought as the above, can one combine existing servitors into one after they have been charged and working successfully for a time?
(…Because I could think of a dozen or more different kinds of servitors to create and it seems like it would be drain upon me to keep them all charged. But I also recall in your books that servitor workers must be made simple to work effectively. How far could this line be pushed?)

 I personally believe that it is better to have many different but specialized servitors. Complexity is not always an advantage and the drain is minimal unless you are sending more than one servitor at a time to do work for you. I tend to stick to one task, do it right, then move on.
6) Can a servitor be created to modify personal behavior?
(i.e. instead of having a nervous reaction to a crowd of people, you feel calm, clearheaded, and graceful.)

Yes, but it can’t change you per se; it can only help you to help yourself. Don’t create one to try and change your feelings but instead create one to remind you to change your feelings or to help change the energy of the environment around you (through the projection of love or happiness for example).
A good idea would be to create one to run a little movie in your head, like an inspiring event that really inspires you with confidence, or gives you a step by step procedure that you are studying on how to handle yourself in large crowds.
Use your creativity.
7a) Can a servitors actions be triggered by thoughts or actions?
(i.e. Everytime I think/do ‘X’, my servitor does ‘Y’.)

This is not a good idea. Your servitors should always be under your conscious control (verbal commands work best I think). Can you honestly say that you are aware and in control of everything that runs through your head? Complications can arise because of the huge complexity of our subjective reality. Keep it simple.
7b) If the answer to the above is yes, would this work on others?
(i.e. Every time person ‘A’ thinks or does ‘X’, my servitor does ‘Y’ to/at/for them, or me.)

Again no. Send servitors to do one specific thing at one specific time. This involves more work on your part but control should always be a priority.

8) Can one create a servitor to heal the emotional scars of ones self or another?

Yes. Each case is different, so use your creativity here and design a servitor that you think would do the job best.
9) With regard to obtainablity mentioned in your third book, what if what you need to achieve a goal really does require an ‘unbelievable’ amount of money/resources and there’s no baby steps to get there? How does one overcome this obstacle?

Obtainability, like time and space, is in greater terms a psychological distance. As you know from the third servitor book, our psychology is built upon the scaffolding of our beliefs. When you say ‘an unbelievable sum’ you reveal a belief that you have or a belief of people in general within your sphere. If beliefs are essentially an incredibly intense form of psychic energy projection and attention then what you need to do is to work using servitors or thought forms until your idea of what is obtainable changes; you’re essentially working on your beliefs through direct thought constructs. Everything is thought construct.
Remember to use the techniques that I mentioned in the third servitor book, especially Detached Expectancy as outlined in the third book; my personal experience is that this is one of the best ways to do this.

One additional question to the above…

10) When writing out the statement of intent, description, powers, and so forth, must it be handwritten? Does it need to be hand-drawn as well?

I find it easier to get my thoughts out on my keyboard. I can edit more efficiently. If I wrote it all out, it would take up about 3 pages. I thought perhaps I could type it out on my computer, print out the text, and leave the areas blank for where I need to draw the pictures, or perhaps insert a graphic image for the detailed drawing part. I’d probably leave the name and logo handwritten/drawn since I won’t think of a name or logo until after I have printed out the page and thought on it for a while.

No, you can write or type as you wish. My ‘belief’ is that ritual is for the most part a mental crutch [like space and time 🙂 ]. I therefore try to keep it as simple as possible in that regard. The framework I use, as far as creating the sheet for fleshing out your servitor, etc. is there to help you to focus more easily, it is not a ceremonial procedure.
Do what works best for you. The really important part is: the focus, belief manipulation, the persistence.

Thank you!

I hope that this answers your questions. I know that there is some vagueness there but that vagueness is there because it is impossible for me to provide a step-by-step procedure for you personally. It is my desire that you explore your subjective self and discover what works best for you. We are all different and unique in that our internal symbology and the psychological hurdles that we face are uniquely personal.
Your work is your own,
Good Luck!
