Speak the Truth Spell

Hoodoo Truth Spell: When you need the truth from someone.

To perform this spell you’ll need an orange candle (for blockage removal, to remove the block that is preventing the truth from coming out) and a white candle (for purity and truth). If you desire, they can be in the shape of a person that you seek the truth from, a man or woman. (These would be human figure candles in male or female which are available at any hoodoo/metaphysical shop, or online).  You will want to perform this spell on a Wednesday, which is ruled by Mercury and good for workings involving communication and knowledge.

  1. Dress the candle by writing the name of the person you are seeking truth from on it and then carve “Tell me the truth.” If you are unable to write this on the candle, use a petition paper sprinkled with with clarity oil and eyebright.
  2. Annoint the candle with oil that you have purchased or made for the ritual, and then light the candle. I personally suggest clarity oil (to see the truth clearly) and sprinkling some eyebright on top of the candle to that your eyes are opened to the truth of this person). Rub the oil upwards, from bottom to top, because you are bringing truth to you.  Sprinkle the eyebright on top of the candle in a clockwise fashion, because clockwise is forward, positive movement.
  3. Once the candle is lit, say the following: A spell of truth I cast upon you, deceit and all confusion leave. Speak now, (insert name here), and reveal the truth to me. With this light I can see, the truth be revealed, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

Animal Spirit Guides & Curios

Recently, I have been looking to Animal Spirits to guide me in my spiritual work, which led me to thinking about the use of animal guides in hoodoo and animal curios.

Crown of Success http://newworldwitchery.com/2010/02/15/blog-post-13-%E2%80%93-crown-of-success/

Crown of Success can be used for career success and advancements, including obtaining promotions and greater financial benefits. One way to use Crown of Success supplies is to use Psalms such as psalm 23 or another success prayer combined with your ritual baths, candle rituals, mojo bags, etc. Anoint your hands, head,  and heart before interviews, discussions about raises,  tests or any other endeavor that you need success in.

A Good Luck Prayer Bible Verse:

Psalms 90:17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the work of our hands— O prosper the work of our hands!

You can either soak a piece of lodestone in the oil, place it in a red pouch and carry it with you when you are job hunting or attending interviews as a successful employment charm, or use in the bath, or anoint yourself with it before any employment venture (like an interview or filling out the paperwork to start your own business), so that by immersing yourself in its magic, you literally become the charm that attracts success to you.

One Version of the Formula:

bay laurel or dried crushed bay leaves
frankincense or the powdered resin
sandalwood or the powder
vetiver or dried, powdered vetiver roots

Add the above to a blend of sunflower, olive and/or jojoba oil.

In my opinion, all good hoodoo oils should have some plant matter in them.  It is important to pray over the oil to activate its powers.  It’s like instructing the oil or telling it what it’s purpose is.  Also praying aloud lets the Divine and the spirits know how to imbue the oil with power. Crown of Success Oil may be used to strengthen any job seeking mojo bag or spell; it is a very giving formula, generous and benevolent.

Start by burning the lover’s incense.  Carve your name and your beloved’s name on the candle, and draw a heart on the candle. Then, dress the red candle with the Love Me Now Oil, working from the base of the candle to the top  and say the following:

Psalms 63:3
3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

For this spell to work, you have to say this three times a night for five straight nights.

Make sure you anoint yourself with Love Me Now Oil whenever you are in the presence of the one you want.

In Islam there is a story about the hamsa .this story is on the Fatima and the hamsa was the Fatimas hand .she is the only daughter of the prophet Mohammad. The tells that, One day when Fatima was busy with her work and her husband Ali came with other wife because Muslims are allows to married with 4 wife. But Fatima was neglects him and not reacts suddenly. But she doesnt say any thing to Ali and after some time she cuts her hand. So this is the symbol of her patient and faith. It is also the lucky symbol for Muslim and is the symbolic pillar.

Why Would You Use A Hamsa?

Early Charms

Throughout history and across the world, there have been a number of charms, ornaments and pieces of jewelry used to combat evil spirits and bad luck. One of the most well known charms is the dream catcher. Originating from the Ojiwe people, the dream catcher has come to represent Native American culture. Always crafted with an array of fibers meant to resemble a spider’s silk, the dream catcher is thought to protect sleeping children by either filtering out nightmares or catching them in the web.

In Japan there are many variations of protective charms that have existed for generations, such as the Omamori, which are traditionally amulets obtained from shrines that have been blessed by the good will of the gods. In Western Culture, charms like a faux rabbit’s foot and a four leaf clover are very popular items meant to bring good luck in all aspects of life.

The symbols meaning

It is in this way that the Hamsa is similar. The word Hamsa literally translates to “five” in Arabic, which is a reference to the five fingers the amulet portrays. The Hamsa is very popular in the Middle East and has more recently become a part of Judaic culture. This charm is known by several different names, but in a Jewish context, it also is referred to as the Hand of Miriam.

In all cultures, the Hamsa is a sign of protection, the open hand a welcoming symbol of tranquility and goodwill to others. It features five fingers; three lay straight out and together while the pinky and thumb curve outward. The symbol offers a stylized approximation of the human hand, as the pinky and thumb are of equal size and shape. This amulet is best used like other types of charms. You can place it virtually anywhere to ward off evil spirits and dark auras.

Its other uses

Large tapestries can be purchased, illustrating each finger with ornate detail and color. These decorations are perfect for hanging on walls, especially ones that are open to sunlight during the day. Like other common amulets, the Hand of Miriam can even be purchased as a small charm you can conveniently clip to a key ring, purse or cellular phone.

Necklaces, bracelets and other forms of jewelry are also prime places for this amulet. Having it in such close proximity to your body will also result in a heightened degree of luck and protection for the wearer. Many artists create highly embellished jewelry featuring this popular hand, and often you’ll see the depiction of an eye in the center of the palm.

That eye represents what is known as the “evil eye”, which is a reference to the dark look some people will give in the presence of envy. The Hamsa is thought to be the most vigilant protector from the evil eye. Fish are also common symbols because they are believed to be resilient to the effects of the evil eye.

Whether or not you happen to believe in superstition, deities or any form of evil energy, it’s clear that luck charms are a common staple among all societies and cultures. For generations people have depended on simple blessings to get them through the most horrible sin and strife.

When you see a talisman or amulet like the Hamsa, you can be comforted in knowing that you are welcome and surrounded by a positive environment. Luck charms help bring us all together by fostering a belief and hope for the common good and a bright future.

Road Opener Spell & Remove Blockages Herbs

Here I thought people would like some quick information about Road Opener and easy ways to open roads and clear blockages in your life.

Road Opener is also called Abre Camino.


The road opener method described seems very doable to me.

Are Road Openers the Most Useful of Spells? Yes, they are!

Road Opener at paganpace.net.


Do not go for the first recipe listed, the one with honeysuckle.  Honeysuckle, because of the way it groups upward as a vine, is actually a binding choking kind of herb.
The one posted by Thom on August 19, 2010 at 2:52am is much better.

And Shadow at Shadow’s Magic Space has a great blog entry about it

Lucky Mojo Update

The Lucky Mojo Saga continues. http://www.blog.hoodoo-conjure.com/?p=138

After last year’s attempts to reconcile and apologize to catherine yronwode, and some rather interesting dialogue with her husband Nagasiva, the thread-of-shame is still up, still here to dog me.

For those not in the know, here it is: http://forum.luckymojo.com/frances-osborne-hrcc-student-expelled-copyright-thief-t9932s30.html

For the record, I admit that I committed copyright violation, but really, does my punishment have to be the public display not once but twice on the thread my home address and home phone number? Not only do I share property with my elderly mother (who shares the same address as I do) but also I have a minor child.  Do I need to describe the endangerment involved?

This happened in 2010. It’s now 2013. It’s been going on WAY TOO LONG. I’m in the process of drawing up a legal letter to her to get her to remove the thread on the grounds that she violated personal privacy information.

I urge everyone who knows me and cares about me to write a letter to cat yronwode, her husband Nagasive, and the Lucky Mojo company in general to say how disgusting it is to reveal people’s personal information just because you are pissed off at them.  Please write them, if not for me but for yourself or on behalf of anyone who has gone afoul of cat yronwode. THANK YOU

Edit: here is a letter of apology that I wrote in April 2012


Update (02/07/13) If anyone from the LM crowd reads this, please let catherine yronwode that I am in the process of calling a lawyer. Everyone has told me that the posting of my personal, private information is illegal.  Sure, I did something illegal too, but I stopped it and I own it. She should do the same. All mature people own their mistakes. Plus, somehow I don’t think my punishment fitted my crime at all, and it’s not like I murdered or raped anyone.
