It’s Hot! It’s Damn Hot!

USE A BOTTLE OF WAR WATER TO REVERSE WORKS OF NEGATIVITY The Southwest has its own kind of beauty and its own kind of conveniences. Something we have an abundance of here is heat. I like to use this and our other natural resources in my workings whenever the opportunity presents itself, like in this next one. On a Tuesday,…



There Are Masters and Then There’s Everyone Else

MOTHER OF THOUSANDS When I was a kid, a friend of the family who knew I loved plants gave me a Kalanchoe. It was the neatest thing to me because I had never seen anything like it. She explained that each one of the babies, along each one of the leaves, would drop off and a whole new plant would sprout…



It’s Super Bowl Time Once Again

“A DIRTY BIRD CAN’T FLY WITH A BROKEN WING” Whenever the Super Bowl comes around, it makes me think of the year the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts were playing (Super Bowl XLIV, 2010). The media got a lot of millage out of the fact that New Orleans is associated with the practice of Voodoo. My favorite example…



The Turn of the Screw

THIS TRICK IS HEAVY ON THE SYMBOLISM Once in a great while, there will be an instance where I simply cannot bide my time waiting for the Cosmic 2 x 4 to come along and smack a given individual in the head. (I’m getting older and I just do not have the patience.) Instead, I will deputize myself an Agent of Karma,…



Blood, Sweat, and Tears

BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS ISN’T JUST A GROOVY SEVENTIES BAND Bloodletting At Its Best “I don’t do blood magic!” I cannot count how many times I have suggested to someone that they use a little bit of their blood on a candle, packet, or in some other work, and they have looked at me like I’m some depraved vampire. Well,…

IS BURNING INCENSE OR SMUDGING A PROBLEM FOR YOU? It is not uncommon. You want to clear the environment of the yuck, but due to health or other concerns (read as: coworkers or nosy parkers), you can’t just spark up some incense or a stick of sage. What to do, what to do!? Well, fortunately there are a number of…



Miscellaneous Money Moves

USING FOREIGN MONEY I will often include currency from other countries whenever I am doing money/business success work because I want the earning and spending potential of the work to be effective on a global scale. I always make sure I bring back some of the local currency of wherever I am visiting. Likewise, when friends or family travel abroad,…

Azealia Banks and Her Closet Video

AIN’T NOBODY HERE BUT US CHICKENS Like many people, I don’t like the idea of animal sacrifice for religious purposes, but it happens. You don’t have to agree with it, support it, or participate in it. However, if you love your steak like I do, making a big deal out of ritualistic chicken killing is kinda hypocritical. Especially considering that…



Piggybacking Work

NO SWEAT, BABY! The gist of this article is to get you thinking about how you can use something that is already happening, or may happen with very little effort on your part, to help advance your own magical agenda. There is a phrase that I say whenever I go to buy lottery tickets. It’s my lucky phrase. I have…
