Sample Mediumship Oracle Reading

I bought Doreen Virtue and James Van Praagh’s “Talking to Heaven” cards yesterday, and thought I’d try out a sample mediumship tarot spread called “LOVED ONE ON THE OTHER SIDE.”

The cards themselves are kind of basic and (in my opinion) not informative enough.  I’ll have to develop my intuition and imagination with these cards. They’ll take some hard core practice on my part to get effective with them and give meaningful mediumship readings with them.

In hoodoo/conjure, the spirits of the dead, especially the ancestors, are an important feature in the practice of hoodoo. The first altar one generally builds is to the ancestors. The spirits of the dead are there to guide us and protect us.  They give us information and advice for our lives. You may be interested in some articles about spiritualism and mediumship over at my website. http://hoodoo-conjure.com/spiritualism/index.htm 

How is my loved one doing? “Don’t be afraid.”
Don’t be afraid FOR me, don’t be afraid for yourself. Fear will hold you back from healing. And fear will tie me to you in an unhealthy way. You have a right to heal. I have a right to be let go of. We all change and grow and recover from the traumas that have damaged us.
Anything my loved one wants to say to me. “I wish I had told you more often how much I love you.”
There were times you doubted I loved you, but I have always loved you. Sometimes I thought you didn’t love me. But of course you loved me.
What’s it like on the other side? “I am just a thought away.”
Because I don’t have a physical body, I can communicate to you through thoughts, feelings, sensations, signs. Watch for me. You will feel me. You will know that I come and go at will.
How can I best support you? “There is no such thing as death.”
Believe that I still exist. My form has changed, but I am still present. I am still here. Life, though altered and not physical anymore, goes on. It exists through the universe. Support me by knowing that I am okay, I am here, I am everywhere. I’m with you still.

The Difference Between Hoodoo and Voodoo


St. Cajetan Job Seeking Candle Spell

St Cajetan is the patron saint of job seekers.

Saint Cajetan is regarded as the Patron Saint of the job hunter and the unemployed. This spell calls upon Saint Cajetan who is eager to help you find a job or a better paying job. If you are tired of your present job and looking for a better one, or if you are currently unemployed, appeal to Saint Cajetan, who will aid you in your quest for a better position or career.

Mix in a bowl:
–1/2 tsp of each herb. Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Fenugreek seed, & Basil
2 oz green olive oil.

Bless the oil in the Name of the Holy Trinity.

You will need three new Green candles. Dress each one with the oil/herb mixture from bottom to top. You will arrange the candles in a triangle on your altar. On the top candle, inscribe “good paying job” and on the two bottom candles write the Success Symbol

Write a petition paper on a piece of brown torn paper grocery store bag. Write on a piece of paper what you would like in terms of a good paying job. Be specific. Write the city and state where you want the job. At the end of the petition paper, write out Psalm 118: 25: “Save now, we beseech thee, O Jehovah: O Jehovah, we beseech thee, send now prosperity.” Fold the paper and place it under the top candle. Place a dollar bill underneath the bottom left candle; on the bottom right candle place a W-2 form with your name and social security number on it.

Light the candles every day for seven days. When you light them, pray to St. Cajetan, the patron saint of job seekers. Offerings to St Cajetan would include bread and wildflowers.

Glorious Saint Cajetan, acclaimed by
all people to be the father of providence
because you provide miraculous aid to
all in need, I stand here before you today,
asking that you present to the Lord our God
the requests that I confidently deposit
in your hands today.
May these graces that I now request
help me to always seek the Kingdom
of God and his Righteousness,
knowing that God — who dresses with
beauty the flowers of the field and
abundantly feeds the birds of the
sky — will give me all other
things. Amen.

On the seventh day, light the candles and pray “Thank you Saint Cajetan for working on my behalf for a better paying job!” Keep the faith and continue to pray to Saint Cajetan as he will answer your prayers in his own time!

Dispose of the spell remains in an unobtrusive spot at a bank. When leaving, do not look back at the spell remains.
