I've Been Scammed!

Nearly half of the people who contact me and who are interested in hiring a conjure worker or spell casters will usually tell me that they have been scammed in the past. Therefore, I have decided to blog on this topic. Readers may recognize that I've blogged on this before but a good reminder is seemingly necessary.

Just because you hired a conjure worker or spell caster and didn't see the results you wanted does not mean of itself that you were scammed. Repeat, just because you didn't see results does not meant you were scammed. Why? Because honest, and real conjure workers and spell casters will not guarantee results. This is spiritual work. We are not God. We can do great and wonderful things through our gifts but if God has something else planned for you then it's out of our hands. Also, please realize that one spell or work may not be enough to see the results that a client is seeking. For example, I don't just do conjure work for my clients. I also use if for my own life and situations. I can tell you from experiences that sometimes only one work is enough to get the results I want. However, other times I have to do multiple works over a period of time before my results manifest. This is true for my clients as well.

So how do you know if you have actually been scammed? Let me give you some advice.

1. If the conjure worker or spell caster guarantee results then it's a huge warning sign that they are scammers. They will tell you what you want to hear in order to get your money and then when you ask for a refund they will give you any manner of excuse as to why they will not give one to you.

2. If the conjure worker or spell caster takes your money and doesn't do the actual work or spell, then it's a scam.

3. If the conjure worker or spell caster quotes you a price, which you pay, and then later tells you that the situation is worse than they originally thought and now they are asking for a huge amount of money, then it's a scam. This usually occurs in cleansings and uncrossings and the scammer is preying off of people's fears. They may even go as far as saying that if the client doesn't pay them this additional money then there will be serious consequences, up to the client's death.

4. If the conjure worker or spell caster is charging a huge amount for doing something trivial, such as just lighting a candle. I've blogged on this before. I caught a spell caster on line that was charging thousands of dollars to just light a 7 day glass candle. This is 100% a scam. Lighting a 7 day glass candle should b among the least expensive service a worker or spell caster offers. For example, I charge $30 for this service.

So that's about it. Now, keep in mind things are different if you hire someone in an ATR. It's very common for scammers who practice an ATR to claim that multiple expensive animal sacrifices are needed for a situation. It's only a scam if the person takes your money but does not do the sacrifices or if they later contact you and claim that more sacrifices are needed and that you now have to pay a huge amount of money or else bad things will happen to you. This would be similar to what I described above. Otherwise, this is all good information that people should use to determine if in fact they have actually been scammed or not. The reason why this is important because if a person contacts a worker or spell caster and claims they have been scammed and the worker or spell caster can tell the person is lying then that worker or spell caster is going to be very hesitant about taking them on as a client for fear that said person will also lie and claim that they scammed them as well.

Finally, be very careful of what you read online. You may find websites on line that publish accusations of scamming against various workers and spell casters. Most of these websites do not attempt to vet the accusers to determine if they are honest or are just lying. I know this from experience. I had a mentally ill woman who I turned down as a client go online and make false accusations against me in an attempt to get revenge against me. I've told my side of the story and have blogged on what happened but the sad truth is that there are people who are just outright stupid and believe whatever they read online. The good thing is that most of my clients are intelligent and can see through the bull shit lies of this psycho.

Top 5 Reasons Why I Turn Down Certain Clients For Work To Draw Back A Lover

5. The would-be client is mentally ill.

Unfortunately, from time to time I get a person who fabricates a past relationship with a person. I always feel bad for these people because fabricating a past relationship is usually a sign of mental illness. I can usually tell that a person is lying to me because they can't answer certain questions or don't know information about the other person that they should know if they had actually been in a relationship with them. For example, if a would be client doesn't know the person's full name, their birth date, where they live, etc., then it's not a good sign. It is very common for these people to claim a past relationship with a celebrity, either widely known or of the local variety.

4. The would-be client lives in a fantasy world.

Fantasy-prone individuals are usually the first to ask for 100% perfection and make impossible demands. They tend to have a long laundry list of demands of what they want, none of which tend to be feasible in reality. I will do my best to sway them into more realistic expectations but if they can't budge then I can't take them on as clients.

3. The would-be client misunderstood the nature of the relationship.

It is very common for some people to misunderstand a "booty call" for being a full blown relationship. Even cases of "friends with benefits" tend to be misconstrued by certain people. Usually the other person is honest with what is going on but the would-be client wants more. That's okay. We can always do work to build this into a full blown relationship. However, these cases can be difficult. Many of these would-be clients are simply not willing to invest the money or time and energy into such. If I can get a client to understand that they did not have an actual relationship with said person and that additional work would be needed other than just work to draw them back, then I can take the person on as a client. If not, then I have to turn them down.

2. The would-be client waits too long.

This is a huge problem that I see every week. One or two people a week will email me wanting to reconcile and reunite with a past lover that they have not seen in years. As a rule of thumb, if you have been absent from the person longer than you were together then it is not a good sign for success. It is very common for people to wait until it's literally too late or time is quickly running out. This can be a huge problem if the person does not have the money for conjure work. The clock is ticking and the longer they wait to begin the work the less chance of success they have. Now, there are mitigating circumstances that may give certain cases a better chance at success. Each case will have to be assessed on an individual basis. Keep in mind that if a would-be client waits too long to pay then I might turn down the case. It's common for a would-be client to email me wanting work to draw back a lover and at the time I accept the case. However, some people wait for a very long time to pay, talking months to over a year and I have to inform the person they have waited too long and should just let the person go and move on with their lives.

1. The would-be client reveals signs of being a potential problem client or of not listening to or following directions.

Unfortunately, some would-be clients are hell-bent on making their situations worse and screwing things up. If a client shows signs that they are going to be problematic then it's easier to just turn the case down than put up with their nonsense. You would not believe how many people who claim they want a lover back will openly pick fights with them. I've had cases where the client hadn't contacted the person in years, only to have them call them out of the blue after I did the work. To my horror the client then proceeds to bitch or cuss the person out. It is very common for these problem clients to disregard my advice or do the opposite of what I advise them to do. They then usually try to twist it around as if it's my fault. If I feel that a would-be client is going to be the biggest obstacle in achieving success then it's just easier, and less of a hassle, to just turn the case down. If people can't understand that fighting is counter-productive to the achievement of reconciliation then there's no reaching them. They are just going to do whatever they want to do.

My 3 Year Anniversary Of Quitting Smoking

So today is my 3 year anniversary of quitting smoking. For the benefit of my readers who may still be smoking I will repeat my story.

I smoked for 20 years. I smoked on average 1 1/2 packs a day, though there were days when I would smoke up to 3 packs a day and especially if I went out for the night. I would classify myself as a chain smoker. About 4 years ago I started to develop heart murmurs. During an episode I would feel like I was going to faint or even die. The scariest episode occurred while I was on a nightly walk a couple of miles from my house. I had to take baby-steps all the way back home and as luck would have it, I did not have my cell phone on me at the time. I literally felt like I was going to drop dead and all I could think about was who was going to be the unfortunate person to discover my body.

In April of 2013 my grandmother passed away due in part to her COPD from decades of smoking. I have lost many loved ones from smoking-related illnesses. A couple of days later my uncle gave me a disposable e-cig to try. With the first puff I knew that I would quit cigarettes. I was right. It's now been 3 years and I've not once relapsed.

The benefits from vaping are so numerous that there really is no reason or excuse for a current smoker not to transition. You are addicted to nicotine, not to the cancer causing tar from cigarettes. Even if you never develop cancer you can still die from COPD, and trust me, it ain't pretty. It sneaks up on you. One day you will be perfectly fine and then the next day you will have your first symptom. Once diagnosed there is no stopping it. It will just continue to get worse with time. Quitting smoking may halt it's progression but you will never go back to being normal. So it's important to quit smoking before you develop any symptoms and not wait until it's too late. Because the sad truth is that not everyone gets a second chance.

As far as benefits go, my breathing is vastly improved, no smoker's cough, no coughing up a lung upon waking, and I do not smell like an ashtray. I now realize how bad smoker's smell. You stink. It's bad. You can't smell it because you are used to it but everyone around you knows you smell like shit. My heart murmurs have disappeared. I can run upstairs while before I would be out of breath just climbing them. I don't get sick easily now. Before it seemed that every winter I would get a bad lung and/or sinus infection that would take weeks to recover from. I don't have to go outside in the blistering Summer heat, pouring rain or bitter cold anymore. I don't even have to go outside period. In fact, most of my friends and family actually love my vaping. I tend to favor flavors that smell good and so I always get compliments. My favorite flavor is cotton candy. On top of this vaping is by far less expensive than smoking. I went from spending like $50+ a week on cigarettes to like $7 a week for e-liquid. There's not been one single drawback to date. My transition was incredibly smooth.

I still have dreams of smoking. My dreams are very vivid so almost all of the senses are there. I can feel the cigarette, taste it, smell it even. In my dreams I normally smoke and enjoy it and then right before waking it dawns on me that I had quit smoking. I feel guilty and beat myself up and then upon waking I feel stupid as it was just a dream. However, and interestingly, this does not translate for any desire to smoke a cigarette in waking life. I find cigarettes to be disgusting and I don't think I could even tolerate one even if I tried. Cigarette smoke gives me severe headaches and allergy attacks now. I go to the casino a lot and I have to make sure I take Tylenol and allergy medicine before going. I hate it but it does give me an opportunity to talk to smokers about vaping when the subject comes up. I'm often asked, especially by older people, about my e-cig and if I like it.

One of the concerns I had as a conjure worker involved blowing cigarette or cigar smoke for the spirits I work with. I was concerned that my spirits would not be able to adjust to me no longer smoking. I did not want to continue to blow tobacco smoke for them if I wasn't using myself. So I went to each one and told them that I was no longer smoking and would gladly blow vapor for them. To my surprise every single one of them was fine with it.

If you are a current smoker and are considering transitioning to e-cigs, do it! Go to a local vape shop and let them hook you up with a decent model. Try the flavors and settle on some that are appealing to you. You will thank me! To help with your transition, I recommend you first use e-liquid with a high nicotine content. This will help wean you off of cigarettes. Later you can step down to a lower nicotine level. Also, and this is important, every time you get the urge to smoke a cigarette you must vape. That way your body associates vaping with the urge and it becomes natural to you. Stick to that and you should have no problem transitioning.

One more time, if you are ever caught in a dilemma about whether you should vape or smoke remind yourself that you are addicted to nicotine, not to cancer-causing tar. You don't need cigarettes. You can be fully satisfied off of e-cigs. I should know. Before I quit my assumption was that I was just going to die from smoking-related illnesses as I had previously attempted to quit numerous times but failed. However, fate intervened. E-cigs saved my life and they will save yours. Happy vaping!

The History Of The Snake Ring In Hoodoo, The Occult And Popular Culture

The above snake ring is my personal "conjure ring" and is fashioned out of sterling silver and has genuine, as in made-by-nature, rubies for eyes. The ring is in the form of an Ouroboros, a snake eating it's own tail, a symbol of eternity and the cyclical nature of reality.

Snake rings, rings fashioned in the image of a serpent, are among some of the oldest rings worn by humans. The symbolism and style of snake rings has evolved with time. For the ancients, the snake was a symbol of fertility, healing and protection. The ancients believed that snakes were immortal and that they became young again after shedding their skin. It was also believed that the "kiss" or lick of a snake could heal wounds. Images of snakes ready to strike were used as apotropaic charms to ward off evil.  

By the latter Renaissance it became the trend for people, especially women, to wear snake jewelry to indicate mourning. Thus, the snake as symbol of life had been transformed into a symbol of death. It was very common for widows to wear snake jewelry the rest of their life in honor of their lost spouse. By the 1700s the symbolism of the snake would transform again. This time the snake's fertility symbolism was emphasized and the serpent was viewed as symbolic of love. This belief would reach a peak of popularity in the Victorian age where even Queen Victoria herself wore a gold snake ring with emerald eyes. It was her engagement ring from her beloved Albert and she was said to frequently comment that it symbolized their love. During this time the most popular form of snake ring was the Ouroboros, the snake biting it's own tail, which was said to symbolize the eternal nature of true love.

Fast forward to the early 20th century, specifically on or before the 1920s and the symbolism of the snake ring would evolve yet again. This time snake rings, as well as snake jewelry, became popular with women who viewed it as a symbolism of exoticism and freedom. The preferred imagery of the snake ring had changed to a non-Ouroboros type, with a serpent having one or more heads often set with precious or semi-precious stones. The preferred stones were almost always red in color and usually were rubies or garnets. However, diamonds and emeralds were a close second. Those who could not afford stones often had snake rings with colored glass eyes.

It was at this time that various occultists began promoting snake rings as talismans or symbols of occult powers. The most famous occultist to champion the snake ring would be L. W. de Laurence who wrote about it's alleged and mostly self-invented magical lore in his, "The Great Book of Magical Art, Hindu Magic and East Indian Occultism, and the Book of Secret Hindu, Ceremonial and Talismanic Magic" (1915). L. W. de Laurence sold three-headed snake rings, the fashion of the time, with or without precious stones, ranging in price from $15 to $100 each. You can read the advert at the link below.

Keep in mind that though de Laurence billed these rings as possessing magical powers, two and three-headed snake rings had already become quite popular. One can still find examples from this time period for sale. There was a vintage three-headed snake ring, the exact same type as sold by de Laurence, listed on Etsy for quite some time. It recently sold or else I would have provided the link.

Although L.W. de Laurence was among the first occultist in modern times to promote snake rings for their alleged occult powers, he wasn't the first modern occultist to employ one.  One of the first persons to have employed a snake ring possessing alleged magical powers was "The Black Constable", a.k.a. John Domingo. Domingo was said to have been the most powerful hoodoo man and necromancer in South Carolina in the 1880s. He possessed a silver snake ring that he claimed was made in the Congo and which possessed the power of commanding spirits. Upon his death the ring was lost and it's whereabouts remain a mystery.

It was John Domingo that inspired me to purchase my own snake ring. I chose sterling silver due to it's protective qualities and genuine, natural rubies vs. rubies made in a lab, as red is the color of power, will and manifestation. I chose the Ouroboros form, not as a symbol of true love, but rather due to it's older symbolism of eternity and the cyclical nature of existence. I have enchanted the ring for a specific purpose, which will remain secret.

If any of my readers are interested in purchasing their own snake rings there are many options to choose from. You can purchase a pre-made one or a vintage one. You can even have someone create a custom design. Rubies and garnets are the traditional stones for the eyes. However, you can choose whatever stones appeal to you. There's a snake ring for every budget so don't let prices discourage you. After receiving your ring you too can enchant it for whatever purpose you like.

A bit of trivia, in the 2015 movie, The Skeleton Key, the three-headed snake ring worn by the character of "Papa Justify" was inspired by the snake rings sold by L.W. de Laurence. It was used at the suggestion of Cat Yronwode.

Subject: Doc you scary! 

I knew that I made the right choice in hiring Doc. I needed someone willing to do some hardcore shit on a real POS at my job. This asshole has been up in my business from almost day one and constantly snitches on me. 

I knew that it was either going to be him or me so I contacted Doc and let him take care of it. Sure enough not even six weeks later he gets fired. Seems he called in one too many times and he was crying! He didn't know that one more sick day would put him over his limit and I find that ironic as Doc mentioned that he was going to throw in some confusion work as well to mess with his mind. I guess it worked. Highly recommend Doc when you need tough shit done to people. 

I don't want people to judge me or anything but it really is a situation where it was either him or me.

Doc Ima holler at you later if need the other work I asked you about.

I had an email reading with doc on Friday and he was really good. He picked up on the real reason I wanted the reading. My mom recently underwent treatment for cancer and its now in remission. I didn't even tell him any of that. All I did was ask him about her health and he just started saying that he sensed she had cancer but that it was currently in remission. I was really shocked he picked up on it. He also told me things I suspected about my boyfriend and gave me hope with my current job. I'm also considering hiring him for money work in the near future. Thank you again doc.
