The power of a hoodoo magic spell may be augmented and facilitated by the use of botanical curios, ritual oils, dressed and prepared candles, ritual bathing, talismans, or other prescriptions. Depending on the root doctor's religious traditions, the casting of spells may also include the participation of spirits, angels, djinn, Catholic church saints, or folk saints, as well as the recitation of religious prayers and prescriptive spiritual texts such as the Psalms or the Surahs.
Conjure magic spells may be cast for virtually any purpose, and include love spells, money spells, blessing spells, protection spells, career success spells, health and healing spells, spells for the removal or reversal of crossed conditions, curses, or jinxes, court case and mediation spells, spells to increase psychic gifts, or spells to drive away or get revenge on an enemy.
Clients will seek out hoodoo rootworkers to cast love spells for a number of different reasons, ranging from a desire to find a suitable partner for marriage and starting a family, to finding a partner interested in a casual one night fling. Love and romance spells are some of the most commonly asked for kinds of spell work. They rely on the use of candles, roots and herbs, oils, and natural curios that are said to be efficacious in drawing, keeping, and sustaining a loving relationship and/or partner. One will find a few objects that are ubiquitous in their application to love and romance work including: Lodestones (used to draw a specific person to someone else or to draw two people together), honey jars (used for sweetening one person to another), Personal Concerns (skin, hair, saliva, clothing, and/or sexual fluids), plain candles, and figural candles (male and female or male and female genitalia) which can be dressed with love drawing and love keeping roots, herbs, oils, and sachet powders and used in love and romance workings. Among the specific kind of spells we find for love and romance, there are spells to draw and keep a specific partner, spells to draw and keep an unknown partner with a specific list of qualities, spells to fire up one's sex life or romantic life, spells to make oneself appear more attractive and desirable, spells for tying and untying someone's Nature, and spells for reconciling with an ex.
Under the general category of money-drawing spells, spiritual rootworkers may group many types of magical spells undertaken on behalf of clients who are petitioning for situations such as business, sales, and career success; income from an inheritance; job-getting and job promotion; casino, lottery, and gambling luck; the repayment of loans that are owed; and court case and legal settlements that involve financial recompense, insurance pay-outs, and disability compensation. Spells to hold money in the home or business and decrease losses through over-spending, unexpected charges or damage to equipment, or heavy tax burdens are called money stay with me spells.
Money and wealth spells of all types can be performed long distance, especially by the setting of vigil lights on an altar. The candles are dressed with herbs, minerals, and oils that are alleged to attract money, and are prayed over and blessed in the name of the client.
It is also quite common for a client who is seeking business success in a storefront or home office situation to seek out a rootworker or spiritual practitioner who will come to the premises and help undertake the initial spiritual cleansing and set-up of any necessary altar space.rootworkers enjoy doing for their clients.
If everything is going well in the client's life and a blessing is asked on a new business, new home, new job, new pet, or new-born child, then the work is undertaken with considerable joy and sweetness.
If a spiritual worker's client has been previously suffering from crossed conditions, then it is customary for the root doctor to perform an uncrossing spell, followed by a protection spell to keep the bad situation from returning, and then to finish with a blessing spell to send the client on his or her way renewed, refreshed, and sheltered.
Blessings may be general in nature, simply calling for continued goodness and grace, or they may be made quite specific in content. Examples of highly structured blessings include blessing a new boat with water that has been ritually collected from the lake, river, or sea in which the boat will be sailing, or blessing a new pet by crafting a talisman that utilizes some of the saved personal concerns, such as fur or a photo, of a former pet.
For many spiritual workers, there is nothing more satisfying than assisting clients to become financially secure through career success. Even during hard economic times, there is a feeling of positivity and uplift that accompanies the casting of spells, the making of mojo bags and jomos, the preparation and empowerment of charms, amulets, and talismans, or the burning of magically anointed candles for a client who is seeking to live a productive and successful life.
If a divination -- for instance by card reading, pendulum consultation, or psychic reading -- indicates that the client's career success is being held back because he or she has been crossed, jinxed, or cursed, the rootworker's first step will be to remove the curse or break the jinx. This can be accomplished by spiritual bathing and cleansing, either in person or at a distance.
Once the client is free from old messes, the rootworker will seek to open the client's road. Tools and techniques employed by a conjure doctor who is casting spells for career success range from altar work and affirmative prayers to the preparation of bottle spells, fixed curios and talismans, and custom mojo hands to the setting of anointed and dressed candles and the prescription of spiritual conjure oils, herbs, baths, incenses, and powders for the client to use.
Some degree of protection work is recommended for everyone on an ongoing basis. In cases where an client is particularly at risk, whether by temporary circumstances, living in a bad environment, or because he or she is the target of sorcery or harmful conjure work or crossing spells cast by an enemy, protection spells should be undertaken on the client's behalf.
When a spiritual worker prescribes protection spells, the protection work itself is often preceded by a divination, then by cleaning the individual and, if necessary, by performing a reversing spell to send back any jinxes that have already been thrown by an enemy and landed on the client.
Candle spells may be done to surround the individual with a fiery wall of protection and protective amulets, talismans, charms, or enchanted jewelry may be crafted for the individual to wear or to carry. Protection spells may also be cast to emphasize the invisibility of the individual so that malevolent elements cannot see him or her. Spirit Work requesting the intercession of specific saints or spirits may undertaken as well. For instance, the Archangel Michael is a great defender, as is Black Hawk. And finally, prayers such as The Lord's Prayer or the 91st Psalm may be said for the individual.
When a person is suffering through a run of bad luck, unnatural illness, or a string of unexplained accidents, it is often said that they have come under crossed conditions or that the jinx is on them. Knowing how to uncross a client or take off a jinx is one of the most basic, and most often requested jobs that a conjure doctor can perform on behalf of clients. This type of spell work, sometimes called block-buster or jinx breaking, is very important when dealing with clients for whom an ordinary cleansing and blessing has failed to produce relief from negative situations.
Like other conjure spell casting, uncrossing work can take several forms, depending on the nature of the case and the inclination of the rootworker. In-person bathing and foot washing are among the most traditional forms of uncrossing, but the same sort of work can be performed by bathing at a distance, with vigil lights, and through prayer.
Once the client's jinx has been broken or the crossed conditions removed, it is customary to finish the work by performing a road-opening to clear the client's way for new experiences and to unlock the way to more money, love, and luck. Road Opener spell-casting is quite often performed with vigil lights, accompanied by the prescription of spiritual supplies or the preparation of a mojo hand or lucky talisman to carry on the person.
Reversing work is undertaken by a root doctor to return to the originator whatever was sent to harm the client. This most commonly is done to return malicious spellcraft which was laid or thrown in order to harm the recipient.
Reversing work is not to be confused with cursing, because it reflects back, rather than originates, harmful spells which may have been be cast against an individual. Reversing work is often compared to using a mirror, and the analogy is so strong that a number of well-known and powerful spells for reversal work employ literal mirrors in the crafting of the spell.
There are many traditional methods of aiding those who find themselves involved in legal tangles or attracting the unfavorable attention of the law.
Specially prepared brown ritual candles may be burned for nine days prior to a court date to protect the interests of those at risk.
When investigations are ongoing, "tossing the house" is a ritual that may be employed by an in-person root doctor who ritually turns things upside down to confuse the investigators.
If the client is seeking monetary recompense for damages, a honey jar coupled with money-drawing work is often used, to cause the judge or jury to be generous to the client.
Herbal preparations, mojo bags, talismans, and sugar or honey jars may be employed to incline the judge and jury towards the petitioner's case, and the client may be instructed to "chew the root" during the trial or, if that is not possible, the root worker will chew the root on the client's behalf. Spells reputed to silence the voices of the opposition, including hostile witnesses, law officers, and the opposing side's attorney, may be engaged; among these, the most famous involves a ritually prepared beef tongue that is used to tie, bind, silence, and freeze out any interests that oppose the client's.clairvoyant reading, clairaudient reading, and empathic reading.
Once contact has been established with the target individual he or she wishes to influence, the conjure worker must call the spirit and communicate a request, desire, or command. This can be done while the target is awake or asleep, although many workers do prefer to make the contact while the target is asleep, as they find it easier to insinuate their own will and thoughts into the target's unconscious mind. Mental influence or astral spellwork can be a very useful and effective method of working by itself, but it is often used in combination with other techniques and tools, such as burning candles and incense, or working with a doll-baby.hoodoo rootwork will pay money to hire a conjure doctor is to cast spells that they themselves are reluctant to learn or to perform, and among such spells, those that are hostile, aggressive, or angry are the most common.
Some spiritual workers refuse on principle to cast any spells of aggression, and some who do undertake dark work of this sort will only cast such spells to protect themselves and their family, but never for hire. Their refusal to undertake bad work or enemy jinxing spells for a client usually has nothing to do with how "strong" they are as magicians; most likely they are what is called "lady-hearted workers" -- that is, they are morally unwilling to hurt people or animals while casting spells.
Other conjure doctors will not undertake any spells of aggression or cursing for clients under any circumstances, but they will do such work for themselves or their family members, and they are fully willing to teach harmful spells to their clients by the process of spiritual consultation known as magical coaching.
Most ethical conjure doctors who do cast aggressive spells for their clients only undertake sch a job when they have determined through a prior reading or divination that the work is justified in God's eyes and that it is a morally sound proposition for them to take on the case. Root doctors of this sort are called "justified workers."
Because it is difficult for clients to find spiritual practitioners who will take on cases of aggressive magic, even when the work is justified, some workers will charge a higher fee for this type of spell casting than for other types of conjure work.
