Scripture for Revelation + Truth Works

HELP REVEALING THE HIDDEN AND DISCOVERING THE TRUTH

The Bible contains scripture applicable to nearly every life situation. Indeed, for believers, it is a guidebook, for some, it is a grimoire, others a book of parables, and yet others, it’s a complete work of fiction. I won’t debate the veracity or importance of what is contained…



railroad spikes

Tales From The Hoodoo Trenches #1

FUCKING UP SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO

It’s “railroad spikes,” not “railroad stakes” or even “railroad steaks.” They are not to be placed in War Water, not even for the purposes of adding rust or the element of iron, use coffin nails or pins and needles, instead. Railroad spikes are for the protection of YOUR property….

Hey, You’re Doing That Wrong

SAGE WISDOM FROM GRIZZLED ELDERS

This has always been a bone of contention with me. People new to their path will often feel like any attempt to steer them in the right direction is “shaming” or “gatekeeping.” I cannot speak for others, but if I actually take time out of my busy day to correct something…



Scripture for Particular Works

THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE KJV

Many people new to hoodoo are already aware that the Psalms are frequently referenced in various works, but they really don’t have any idea which Psalms to use or even know which version of the Bible to use. So, I’m going to try to clear some of that up right…



I’m Going On the Record

YOU PROBABLY WON’T LIKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY

I practice hoodoo. I have learned it from Black folks, Native American folks, Mixed folks, “White” folks, family members, people who were like family, people I came across at picnics, church functions, workshops, candle shops, and literally, even people I pulled up to at stop lights, and…



For Help with Long-Standing Crossed Conditions

IT’S CALLED “SPIRITUAL WORK” FOR A REASON

So, I wrote out this long-ass reply to some person who asked for help with her brother who has been worn down by circumstance and is lacking confidence. Of course, she did not mention in her original post that she wanted to do said work without his knowledge. Couldn’t…



Kuan Yin: Fertility, Compassion, and Mercy

CHINA’S MOST WELL-KNOWN AND BELOVED GODDESS

As you may or may not be aware, for decades now, I have practiced Feng Shui along with hoodoo. Now, I don’t mix them, but the whole thing about clean people and spaces overlaps, so any time I can serve both aims with the same amount of work, I’m a…



Making Black Salt: A Personal Evolution

A FEW RECIPES FOR BLACK SALT

Black Salt is one of those traditional preparations that you either use or you don’t. It’s easy enough to make, especially these days, and it keeps with no effort. Like many things in conjure, Black Salt pulls double-duty as both a protective work and as a crossing work.

Now, I have…



A Little “Money Stay With Me” Work

MAKE IT AND KEEP IT

I have been using the following working for years. As is typical, someone on a Facebook group asked for some help on this front and I figured that if I am writing it all out, I may as well put it here first.

You will need:

A Two Dollar Bill
Two Small, Strong Magnets
Gumbo¬†Fil√©…



The Easiest Crossing Working

BRILLIANT AND SIMPLE

I first heard of this work back in 2005, when I was a student of Cat Yronwode. Unlike most of her students, I did not stay close, as we had a falling out early on. Given all of the stuff that has come out since then, I would say that was for the…
