Musings on Rootwork

Create a Spiritual Barrier

To make a spiritual barrier between you and evil influences, make a spiritual protection magic oil that contains the following:
• Angelica essential oil
• Rosemary essential oil
• Bay leaves
• Piece of mandrake root
Add to a base of almond oil. Anoint entryways, windowsills, and
doorknobs to your home and workplace to keep out negative influences.

Boss Fix Powder Spell

This is a highly individualized spell, tailored toward one target. If more than one person persecutes you, make fresh boss fix for each person.

Empty the tobacco from one cigarette. If your boss smokes, either use one of his/her cigarettes or their favorite brand. If they don’t smoke, have it touch (briefly) something they have touched.

Combine it with some shredded newspaper. again making sure that is your boss’s actual paper and that they have touched it at some point.

Add some Chili powder and grind all the ingredients together into a fine powder. Add 13 drops of a domination or controlling oil.

Make sure that the powder is fine ( I suggest using a coffee bean grinder) this is intended to be a very discreet spell. Your boss already doesn’t like you remember.

Pray over your powder. I like Psalm 119:23-33.

When the opportunity arises, sprinkle just a tiny bit on or around your boss’s chair. If that’s too much of a risk, drop a little over the threshold of the office so that he or she will inevitably step over it. Make sure that you do not walk in it yourself.

Unleash Your Inner Psychic!

My good friend  Alan over at ConjuringRoots.com has started his Unleash Your Inner Psychic course.


The author Tana Hoy writes, “Signs of psychic abilities come in the simplest forms, such as being able to read other’s minds, having a gut feeling about something, or being able to tell who’s calling on the phone before you even pick it up. So now the question is, what do you do when you notice signs of a psychic ability within yourself? What else — improve and develop it. A psychic gift can be compared to a bar of gold worth treasuring, but then, it can be a heavy iron bar if you do not wholeheartedly accept your special ability.”

I know that Alan’s gifts are strong and his course is just the thing to help you focus your talent. One of the best ways to develop a stronger psychic skil is to surround yourself with others along the same path.


Hot Foot Powder Spell

Use Hot Foot powder to rid yourself of enemies and unwanted persons. Sprinkle the powder on the path of someone you wish to move far away from you (a form of foot track magic).. Hot Foot places a spell on your adversary, so that he becomes agitated and unable to ever settle down. Some of some of the effects of hot foot include restless wandering and and inability to settle in any one spot.

For a really great spell, see Hot Foot Powder Candle Ritual http://blackmagicsecrets.com/blog/magick/magick-paths/black-magick-path/hot-foot-powder-candle-ritual/

Use hot foot powder on enemies, bullies, or abusers. It also works well for solicitors, door to door salespeople, the jilted lover who wont take the hint, and other everday nuisances.

You can use your own prayer with hot foot, or one of two Psalms from the Bible.

Psalms 35:
[5] Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
[6] Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.

Psalms 59
[11] Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down,
O Lord our shield.
[12] For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their
pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.
[13] Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God
ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.
[14] And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about
the city.
[15] Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.

Tarot Readings Are Now Available Here

There’s a Hoodoo Psychics site that chages $3.99 a minute.How can readers justify charging $3.99 a minute for tarot readings? It’s just crazy! Who can afford that?

I can’t. Or rather, I guess I could if I gave up eating, electricity, and running water.

I’ve been reading for 12 years now, and certainly would NEVER charge $3.99 a minute!

On Forgiveness

I would like to post my reply to a FB friend who wisely reminded us that if we love people we should not say hurtful things to them, because no matter what, you cannot truly take it back once it has been said. This is wise advice and very noble to aspire to!

This was my reply:
“Unfortunately, we all say things that are hurtful on accident. So forgiveness becomes a beautiful thing. It can be so hard to forgive and forget sometimes, but even if we just try try try and never stop trying, that is when we are closest to the divine spark that is in us all.”
I believe in what I said, I believe it very deeply. To forgive is most certainly divine. We are closest to The Divine, The Universe, The Great Spirit, God or Goddess, Our Highest Self, whatever we all call that part that represents the sum of all our parts. I aspire to this. I am not very good at it sometimes, because there are things I hold grudges about that I should have left behind years ago. I err, therefore I am human, I forgive therefore I am divine. I am WAY MORE human than divine! But we can not become more than the sum of our parts without pushing ourselves to the limit and even beyond that limit.

Hoodoo Conjure is GONE

For more than three years, the internet site http://hoodoo-conjure.com has been a main feature of my expression of hoodoo. It has been my joy to find great information on hoodoo and conjure on the internet and collect it in one place.

Much of the information that I published on my site was not mine to publish, nor did I have permission to upload it. I removed everything that came to my attention as being not mine to publish.

Over the past three years, I have been hassled about the site regardless of what I did with it, and regardless of how much I tried to remove things that weren’t mine, there always seemed to be some page or some bit that remained on it.
I am exhausted as a result. I am defeated. The public harassment from cat yronwode and her followers has worked. I no longer have the energy for this and her continued humiliation of me has finally completely crushed me. If cat is the kind who likes to win at any cost, she has won. I hope she takes satisfaction in it. I am happy to hand to her the victory she wants.

As of today, the entire site has been completely deleted with the exception of the blog. This is the ONLY way I know of to stop worrying if there are any unintended copyright violations. If the site is gone, we all know that there is no information that rightly belongs to another on the site.

For those who have befriended me, I thank you deeply, you mean a lot to me. For those who have hated and harassed me, I hope that you find your own way your own road that is very very far away from me.


The only part of the website is the blog: http://blog.hoodoo-conjure.com


I can still be reached via the FB group Texas Hoodoo https://www.facebook.com/groups/texas.hoodoo/

The Copyright of Hoodoo Recipes and Formulas

For those who may wonder if recipes can be copyrighted, here is a really great link on it.  http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl122.html

Admittedly, when we think of recipes, the first thing that comes to mind is food recipes. Your gramma’s lasagna that tasted like no other lasagna. Your mom’s soup that she gave you when you were sick.  In my case, my mom made soft boiled eggs, put on toast and salt and peppered it with just the right amount. Every time I was sick or upset, I asked her to make it.  She tried to get me to learn how to make it, but frankly it didn’t taste the same at all.  My son says that no one can make Cream of Wheat like I can.  Which is weird, because how to do it is right there on the box. :D

So what about hoodoo recipes? Can they be copyrighted?

The page I linked above says NO. A recipe or formula that is just a list of ingredients cannot be copyrighted. What may be copyrighted is the expression or the description or the explanation of how it is made.

If I wrote out a bath recipe telling a person to put kosher salt, some Florida water and a teaspoon of basil, that is not copyrightable. It’s just a list of ingredients. If I write out several paragraphs detailing the amount and a specific way of making and using the bath, well my description is copyrighted.
