From Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers
I have been a reader and rootworker for most of my life. I first began reading palms and doing numerology, bibliomancy, and tea leaf readings for friends as a child during the 1950s, and took up professional work along these lines as a teen-ager. By 1965 i was also reading tarot cards and the I Ching for clients, and in 1967, i became a professional astrologer. I also offer my services for pendulum readings on yes / no questions, casting and reading bones, and i am a gifted psychometrist, with a specialty in reading photographs.
BOOKS, STORE, COURSES, and WORKSHOPS
I am a writer, teacher, graphic artist, web designer, perfumer, and herbalist, a minister and a member of the Board of Bishops of Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, a founding member of AIRR, and a member of the board of directors of the Yronwode Institution for the Preservation and Popularization of Indigenous Ethnomagicology (YIPPIE). I am a pastor at the Crystal Silence League and a member of Hoodoo Psychics. My husband nagasiva and i co-own the Lucky Mojo Curio Company manufactory for spiritual supplies and i am the co-host of the weekly Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour radio show on the LMC Radio Network and give free readings there to call-in clients.
I teach a one-year intensive course in spiritual conjure practice. All the Associates of AIRR have graduated from my Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course, and more than 1,950 other students have enrolled in it. I am the founder of, and have taught classes at, Missionary Independent Spiritual Church's annual Hoodoo Heritage Festival Workshops. I am the author of Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic: A Materia Magica of African American Conjure; Throwing the Bones: How to Foretell the Future With Bones, Shells, and Nuts; The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic in Rootwork, Conjure, and Spiritual Church Services; and The Black Folder: Personal Communications on the Mastery of Hoodoo.
PSYCHIC READINGS AND MAGICAL CONSULTATIONS
You can book a reading or a spiritual consultation and rootwork advice on the phone or in person. We can talk about anything that interests you and i can combine the divination with personal instructions for spellcasting. For instance, i can prescribe conjure supplies for your condition or situation, teach you the use of appropriate Psalms, give you magical spells by direct verbal instruction, or advise you about your spiritual path.
If your interests range farther afield, i can also describe for you various aspects of world-wide folk magic, discuss old-time rural acoustic blues and country music, recommend ways to improve your website business presence through search engine optimization, and bring you up to date on recent medical studies on the relationships between ethnicity, genealogy, and genetics.
All of my readings and spiritual counselling sessions are conducted within the premises of Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, to which i donate a percentage of my income, as a way of supporting the church's outreach work, which includes the organization of the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers.
I live in the small town of Forestville in Northern California. I am always open to seeing those who travel to visit me, but please book in-person readings in advance, to ensure that i will be available when you arrive.
ROOTWORK AND CANDLE SERVICES
Through Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, i offer candle services with petitions and prayers on behalf of clients and a hand-written candle report is sent to you by email after the candle has finished burning, in which you will receive a brief candle glass divination, describing the signs and significations we found while tending to your prayer light.
You may read more about me at my Lucky Mojo website.

Readings and Spiritual Consultations:
I offer several forms of divination, psychic readings, spiritual consultations, magical coaching, and practical advice:
I am available for both pre-scheduled and caller-initiated readings, in person and by telephone.

For the price of a one-hour consultation I will instruct you on how to do conjure work yourself if you wish. I will give you a list of everything you need to perform your spell, and instruct you on the procedure. You may take hand-written notes or record the consultation for future reference.
If you wish to purchase rootwork services and i cannot personally provide them to you because i am over-booked or cannot take your case for any other reason, i will select and recommend at least three other AIRR rootworkers to you, based on what i understand of your case. If you engage one of them, i will provide a complete copy of my consultation notes from our reading to the worker of your choice, via email. This will save your rootworker considerable time in consultation. My consultation notes are not available to the public and can only be sent to another AIRR member upon receipt of a personal request from you, the client.
