Product Review - Candlesmoke - Personal Cleansing Oil

Brand: Candlesmoke
Type: Oil
Name: Personal Cleansing Oil
Bottle: Round, 1/2 dram bottle
Color: Greenish-Yellow
Label: ??? (received minus label)

This was a gift from a client. This is some type of cleansing oil. Unfortunately the client lost the label. The smell is similar to Van-Van oil. This is a trial size bottle. I do not recommend purchasing the trial-size because for only a few more dollars you can get a regular bottle.


Score: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 7.

Product Reviews - Candlesmoke - High John Oil

Brand: Candlesmoke
Type: Oil
Name: High John Oil
Bottle: Round, 1/2 fl. oz bottle
Color: Purplish-Brown
Label: No label, a tag with name of shop and website on one side, and on the other the name of the oil and its jar and batch numbers

This is a wonderful oil that was given to me by a client. The oil has a very strong cedar and 'woodsy' scent and has real pieces of John the Conqueror root in the bottle. I love it.


Score: One a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest ad 10 being the highest, I give this a 10.

Example Of How To Care For Your Dead

I found this grave on Memorial Day. Asians know how to care for their dead. In the picture above you see food and drink offerings, flowers, three shot glasses (only 2 are visible in this shot) full of some liquid, incense sticks which have been stuck into the earth, and a cigarette (the white thing sticking out of the ground on the right by the flowers).

Take care of your dead and your dead will take care of you.

Jodi Arias - More Psychic Impressions

So I was kind of pissed that I couldn't keep up with the Jodi Arias sentencing phase because of the tornado. However, I can say that I'm not surprised by the jury. I actually predicted 4-5 jurors would not be willing to sentence her to death. So it was no surprise to me. However, I did feel let down.

The thing about Jodi is that I could care less whether she gets death or life. I just want her to go away. But the thing that bugs me is if her life is spared she will continue with her lies of being abused and that the murder was self-defense. She will also continue to demonize the victim, as well as the Juan Martinez and even the jurors that convict her.

As far as further psychic impressions, here's goes.

At this time I'm still going with that she will get life w/out parole. However, if she gets death I strongly feel it will be overturned and perhaps may be granted a new trial. I don't know how this will go down since it's too far in the future and of course it's just a possibility at this time. (The way psychic stuff works is we see, or should I say that I see possibilities, so I can see down multiple paths and can ascertain which path will most likely be taken if current events proceed as they are now occurring.)

Now for some new stuff. I sense that Jodi will make some claim of being attacked or molested in jail. She will also attempt to have a book published in some form. I don't think this is the same book I talked about in the first post. It may be someone else who actually writes this book though. I also sense she is scheming of ways in which she can raise money and still be able to access that money, even though she was convicted. The suicide attempts are pushed back a little and won't manifest until things quite down and she no longer is getting the attention that keeps her inflated ego alive. The problem with Jodi is that she completely believes that she is fooling people with her claims of being abused. Her delusion is such that if she repeats it often enough that she believes people will accept her. She also feels that she is a role model for women, especially women who have truly been abused. I sense she will go as far as even contacting various real role models, perhaps even celebrities, in an attempt to have their genuineness "rub-off" on her. It would be as if she though that if she could get them to like her and side with her, than she would believe the public would likewise believe her lies.

Jodi is not prepared for a life without parole. She fully expects that she will one day get her freedom. However, at the same time she will never accept her fate and act in a manner we would expect. Jodi's mind is twisted and she comes up with very novel approaches to situations. So for example, if she can't currently do anything about her situation she will simply change her perception of it. So instead of viewing prison as horrible, she will simply view it as something done for her protection, to protect her from her haters, like she was a celebrity. That's how her mind works.

My Story Of Survival

As an Oklahoman, born and raised, I rarely get scared of tornadoes. Many of us rarely even seek shelter until we really know we are in danger. This tornado was different. We Oklahomans tend to laugh at those people who are not from Oklahoma who freak out over tornadoes. I know people from California who act like it's judgement day each time it storms. When you live here and grow up with it, you just get used to it.

I was on the computer when the t.v. was interrupted by a tornado warning for my county. I didn't even blink and just turned back to my computer. Then the sirens went off. I got up and looked out the window and saw debris filled the sky. I started to freak out. Within seconds the roar of the tornado could be heard. It sounded like a mixture of multiple trains and jets. Later I learned the tornado was headed straight for my home but a few blocks away it suddenly veered off. The tornado struck the end of my street. It knocked down all of the telephone poles, snapping them like twigs. As soon as the tornado passed I ran outside. Huge explosions from transformers blowing blew up into the sky like miniature atomic bombs. I've seen transformers blow before but never have I seen any as dramatic as this. They were orange, blue, green and purple. We then lost power.

Little did I know at that time that my niece was in her gym class when the tornado struck. It tore the gym apart. My niece was injured by falling debris. She sprained her hip and leg.

My sister-in-law worked at Plaza Towers school. She got off work one hour before the tornado struck. That was the school where 7 children died. Almost all of the school is gone.

I'm going to post some pictures but please know these pictures don't give an adequate portrayal of the damage done. It was far worse than it appears in just these photos.

This is my niece's school. I couldn't get a picture of where the gym was because it was in the back of the school and they put up fences so nobody could enter.

Our hospital. They said they put the doctors in a freezer to make sure they survived knowing they would be needed in the aftermath.

A 7-11 stood here. It just opened this year. It's completely gone. Several people died here, including a mother and her 5 month old baby who stopped here for shelter. They though they would be safe in the walk-in freezer but they all died. I can't help but think that if she just kept driving and had not stopped she and her baby would still be alive.

The Birth Of The Monster

The Monster As It Hit My City

This is the second tornado close-call I've lived through. The first occurred back in 1999 when a tornado struck Moore as well. I thank God I and my loved ones made it through okay. We still have cleaning up to do but most of it is already done on our property. Going without water and power for a long time helps one to definitely understand what our ancestors had to handle. I went for days only doing chores in the dark and reading on the porch. Thank God I had Momma Starr's 'The Conjure Workbook' to read! I read it on the porch over a couple of days. Also I want to thank God for only having one hot day during the time we were without power. I only really missed one night of sleep due to the heat. The rest of the days it was relatively cool at night.

Though we came out okay we did loose 2 fridges and 1 freezer of food. I'm just glad we survived. For those out there who donated time, money, and food to help my city I want to extend my thanks. You truly are our heroes.

When I toured the damage on Saturday I discovered that a house I used to live in back in 2001 is totally gone. A park I used to go walking at multiple times a week is gone too. We've lost so much and I still think a lot of people are still in shock.

I want to thank everyone who has been praying for me, my family, and the citizens effected by the tornado. I truly appreciate it. Because I don't have a shelter. If that tornado struck my home I would have died. Please continue your prayers for my city and if you are able to donate please continue to do so as so many families lost everything.

Update On Packages

All packages have been shipped. I will be contacting my clients here shortly to go over information.

God Bless,

Cable, Phone & Internet Is ON!!!

Thank you Jesus! Just in time for Memorial Day!

I have a lot to do to catch up. I also will be replying with pictures and my story in a few days.

I would like to thank people who have prayed for me, my family, and my city. I also want to give a huge, 'thank you' to all the heroes out there, the people that did more than just pray, that got off their butts and came here, the people who donated food and money. Without you heroes this tragedy would have been  a whole lot worse.

God Bless,


Sunday, May 26, 2013


Still no phones or Internet. No word on when they may be back up.

Was able to get food from donations spots today. Thank God! Mostly soups, but hey, as long as I can eat it, it's all good! We lost 2 fridges and a freezer of food that spoiled when the power was off.

I see President Obama toured the damage today. Yall, it's super bad. Horrible. I will try to post pictures when everything's back to normal. It's weird because I don't know half the stuff that is happening because our power was off.

Tomorrow is Memorial Day. We are still going to go visit our dead and have a cook-out. I can't wait. I hope everyone else is able to do the same to their kin who have passed.

God Bless Everyone & Pray For Us,


For my clients, I'll try my best to mail the packages off this week. I will have to go to another post office in another city as our post office was extremely damaged and is closed.

For The Dummies Out There

My city got hit by a tornado Monday. It struck the end of my street. My niece was in the gym at her school and the gym is gone and she was injured by flying debris. We didn't have water for a long time. I just now got my power back on which has been down since Monday circa 4pm. I still do not have phones or Internet.

This mean stop requesting free work. Stop filling my email with your questions. Read my blog. I've already stated in my blog entries that I'm not doing any free work until further notice. I'm so sorry if you think your problem trumps my tornado-damaged city but quite frankly, I don't care. My attention is focused on my community and my family.

Stop sending me emails full of questions about trivial stuff (talking people who do not want to hire me as their worker). I'm not going to answer them. I don't have time to help you choose the right oil or saint to work with. I don't give a damn bout that stuff right now. If you aren't my paying client then I'm not going to devote any time to you. 

I don't have time to beat around the bush with people. If you want to hire me for work then you need to explain to me the situation in email. Right now I've had bout 10 emails this week that go like this:

"need your help, it's important" or "I'm interested in hiring you. Please respond." or "I talked to you last year. I want to hire you. My phone number is....." Stop this bull shit. How the hell am I supposed to remember who you are if you talked to me last year? I'm not going to dig through emails.

Not more of this type of shit. Stop beating around the bush and tell me your situation. I've only been checking email every few days. So the more you bull shit around the longer you are going to wait and the more time you are wasting. So I would have to reply back to you telling you to please explain yourself and your situation. Then you will have to wait 2 to 3 more days before I can check my email again. Even then most of these types of people can't get it through their heads what I'm trying to communicate  and will probably respond with, "it's about reconciliation work". When I say to explain your situation that's exactly what I mean. Tell me the story. If it's about reconciliation, tell me about you and your man, about your relationship, how it broke up, how long you've been apart, whether you have children, whether you still see and talk, whether there's another woman, etc. When I say don't beat around the bush that means you don't waste my time by not providing the information.

For those of you who have sent emails telling me you are praying for me or my family, or checking up to see if I'm okay. I just want you to know I appreciate it. I may not respond to them because it would take too long to do so but I would like to thank you for your concern. Please continue to pay for us.

For my clients, I have packages ready to be mailed. I will hopefully mail them next week if the Internet is restored by then because I have to send you pictures and instructions for the packages. If you have purchased a  phone reading with me you must be patient and wait until my phones are restored. If you purchased an email reading then please be patient. As soon as my Internet is restored I will email you for the reading.

God Bless & Pray for us,


Power's Back On

The power's back on but we still don't have phones or Internet yet. I was able to tour the damage for the first time today. It was terrible. It's going to to take a very long time for my city to recover and even longer for families to heal. Pray for us. When the Internet comes back I'll try to upload some pictures.

Thursday, May 23, 2013


The water is back on. However, I still don't have power. There's no word on when it will be restored. However, I had a dream it would be restored on Saturday. Unfortunatley all of our food is spoiled. We lost 2 fridges and a freezer of food, gone. We've been scraping by. If the power doesn't come on soon I don't know if we can survive.

Unfortunately my email is filled up with people asking questions and for free work.

There will be no more free work from me until further notice. This means even if it's an emergency for you I'm sorry I can't help you.

Also, I will not answer any more questions until further notice as well.

For those of you who sent me emails or comments saying you are praying for me and my family, or for the people of my city, God Bless you. I appreciated it but please know I can't and won't respond to each and every email or comment.

The good news is that the post office survived. I thought it was destroyed. We are still receiving mail as usual. However, getting to the post office is the hassle and I don't know when I am going to able to go there. So for my clients who are waiting for packages please remain patient. I will mail them and email you as soon as they are mailed.

I'm still available for profession work if anyone would like to hire me. I just can not do free emergency work or answer any questions from people. If you would like to hire me as your worker then when you send your email do not beat around the bush. It may take me a couple of days before I can reply to your email so if you beat around the bush all you are doing is making yourself wait longer because I will be forced to keep asking you questions. So be thorough with the explanation of your situation and include any relevant information.

I'll keep you updated.

God Bless,

Attention: Important Update

As you may have heard, I survived a major tornado yesterday. I heard the emergency report on the t.v. then I heard the sirens go off. I looked out my back window and saw debris flying in the air. The tornado hit the end of my street. Debris is everywhere. I have no power, no water, no phone service and of course no Internet service. My niece was in school and the tornado struck the school. She and other students were in gym class when the tornado hit. The gym is gone. My niece was struck by debris and injured but thankfully she survived. My city has been extremely damaged. The bowling alley that is right next to our post office is completely gone. So I'm figuring the post office is also severely damaged.

For my clients: There's is going to be a delay before I can ship out packages. There will be a delay on readings, both phone and email. Please be patient. It may be a week or more before our power even comes back.

Edit: This blog entry was made at a relative's house several cities away. I more than likely will not be here at this location long. I more than likely not be able to get online every day. So please be advised that I more than likely will not respond to email until the power and Internet is back. Pray for us & God Bless, -Doc

Major Tornado Heading Straight My Way!

Golf ball-sized hail. Sirens going off. Repeat of yesterday's tornadoes. Wish me luck & safety!

Product Reviews - Original Botanica - Money Drawing Oil

Brand: Original Botanica
Type: Oil
Name: Money Drawing
Bottle: Round, 1/2 fl. oz bottle
Color: Green
Label: A hand holding money and a banner with the words "Money Dinero" written on it. The same words also appear in black type superimposed over the hand.

This oil smells like kiwi-lime, or some other fruit that smells extremely familiar to me. It's a little strange as a fruit smell doesn't automatically equate to money-drawing in most people's minds. I probably would not purchase this oil again but over-all I'm quite impressed with Original Botanica oils. They only cost a little bit more than say 7 Sisters oils but are far superior.


Score: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 8.

Product Reviews - Original Botanica - Compelling Oil

Brand: Original Botanica
Type: Oil
Name: Compelling
Bottle: Round, 1/2 fl. oz bottle
Color: Green
Label: White label with name of oil in both English and Spanish

This oil smells like candy. Like all of Original Botanica oils, there are no herbs or roots in the bottle. However, the bottle openings are so large it would be quite easy to add herbs, roots, and other items to the bottles if one wished.


Score: On a sale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 7.

Product Reviews - Original Botanica - Commanding Oil

Brand: Original Botanica
Type: Oil
Name: Commanding
Bottle: Round, 1/2 fl. oz bottle
Color: Red
Label: White label with name of oil in both English and Spanish

The oil has a slight chemical-like fragrance. Unlike 7 Sisters and other Wisdom/Indio oils, the red dye is not so strong that it stains your fingers and clothing. The oil can be worn on the body. I probably would not purchase this oil again simply because the fragrance is so slight.


Score: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 5.

$600 Million Dollar Powerball Jackpot Tonight!

You heard right...$600 million! I would strongly advise that if you can afford it to go out and buy at least 1 ticket. You don't need to purchase $100 or more in tickets. If you think about it all you need it one ticket to win and people have won the jackpot before by only purchasing one ticket. So there's no need to go crazy over this.

If nobody wins tonight drawing then the jackpot will increase to at least 925 million dollars, almost a BILLION DOLLARS! In fact, last year an expert stated in an interview that he predicted we will see a billion dollar jackpot shortly. I tried telling people this but they thought I was crazy. Even family members told me I was foolish for even suggesting that. LOL

So grab that rabbit's foot, four-leaf clover, or lucky dream book and go out there purchase a ticket! You could be a winner!

Here's a couple of my favorite lottery stories. A black cat helps a woman to win the jackpot and a dream convinces a man that he will win as well.

Good Luck to all! Win that dough!

UPDATE: One lucky person in Florida won the entire sum, thus does not have to split it with anyone else. If they choose the cash-value option that's about $300 million! Can you image say going from dirt poor to having $300 million over-night?

Hoodoo Jodi

I was browsing YouTube for videos on the Jodi Arias trial and stumbled upon a YouTube comment that blew me away. Below is a paraphrase of the comment.

"Hoodoo Jodi's fixing to get death!"

I was like, "NO! Don't you dare equate hoodoo with Jodi Arias!".

But of course the term "hoodoo", as used by the person means "cursed". So he/she is saying that Jodi is cursed, is a living jinx. The person who wrote the comment is probably from the UK as they still use the term 'hoodoo' in it's original meaning.

If you have read my past blogs, the term "hoodoo" is not African, but comes from the Scott-Irish and means means cursed, unlucky. Anything can be a hoodoo. If a person is a hoodoo it originally meant that you should stay away from them lest bad stuff happen to you because that person is a living, walking jinx, curse. Of course with time the term 'hoodoo' began to be applied to the system of folk magic otherwise called root work or conjure work. Interestingly, many old-school worker would deny practicing hoodoo because they know the original meaning of the word, being cursed or unlucky, and they would equate that to black magic or witchcraft.

Conjure Finds!

Got me my conjure stick/staff. I showed it to my sister and she said it reminded her of Moses throwing his staff down and it turning into a serpent. I was like, yep!

I've been wanting a nice St. Expedite statue for years. However, every one I came across I thought was ugly looking. This is the prettiest statue of St. Expedite I've ever come across so I naturally had to buy it. You can purchase one for yourself by clicking HERE.

Oils, which I will review...

Finally, this wonderful occult skull for use on the altar. This one is perfect! It has some type of seal on the top and astrological symbols carved into it as well. At the very back of the skull is a strange sentence or phrase written in an unknown language, a weird symbol, and a small crow. The skull lacks the lower jaw and has four small felt disks on the bottom to protect the surface it is placed on. The bottom side of the skull looks very realistic. As far as the astrological symbols, the symbol for Mercury is carved onto the forehead. The symbol for Venus is on the left cranium. The symbol for Mars is on the right cranium. The symbol for Jupiter is carved underneath the right eye socket and the symbol for Saturn is carved under the left eye socket.  I believe the seal on the top of the head is for protection, possibly the Seal of Solomon. This skull definitely has the "spooky" factor! It's wonderful for use when you don't want to use a real skull as to not offend the spirits or if you do not want possible police attention should you be caught with a real skull. I have nothing against using real skulls as long as they are bought legally. It's just that in today's post-9/11 world, you can't really get away with keeping human bones without the police being called should someone see them. Back in the day it wasn't like that and many people owned human bones and skulls, even displaying them in their homes. Of course most of the owners were doctors or dentists, but even occults of times past could openly display a skull or human bone without fear of being featured on the news for being accused of human sacrifice during satanic rites. The skull is very realistic, especially when viewed at a distance. However, most people should be able to tell it's made of resin. I love it. If you want to purchase one for your altar then check out the store at the link below. Raven's Mist charges far less for them than other places. Most other places are charging around $30 plus s/h. Raven's Mist has them for $19 plus s/h.

Yesterday I received a wonderful gift from a client.....gourmet artisan chocolates from Moonstruck!
It was a gift to celebrate me going one month without a cigarette. It made my day and they were so delicious! Of course they didnt' last long! LOL

So a huge 'thank you' to 'N'. I already thanked her for sending it but I thought I would say something publicly. It was a wonderful token.

Product Reviews - Anna Riva - Separation Oil

Brand: Anna Riva
Type: Oil
Name: Separation
Bottle: Round, 1/4 fl. oz bottle
Color: Pale Yellow
Label: Gold label with name of oil , typical name and logo of company with list of ingredients

The oil has a muted floral scent with just a mere subtle hint of lemon. Some may find the oil to "pretty" and "sweet" for it's reported purpose. I would say that this would be an oil to use if you are looking for a gentle, easy separation, one in which no fires are fanned and the couple parts on good terms.


Score: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 7.

Product Reviews - Anna Riva - Rose Buds Oil

Brand: Anna Riva
Type: Oil
Name: Rose Buds
Bottle: Round, 1/2 fl. oz bottle
Color: Red
Label: Gold label with name of oil , typical name and logo of company with list of ingredients

This is a strongly artificially rose-scented oil. There are actual rose buds in the bottle. The bottle is also larger than the normal 1/4 fluid ounce that most Anna Riva oils come in. Warning: A very little goes a long ways. You may want to wear gloves when using this oil. When I use it the scent clings to my hands even after multiple hand washings. Sometimes my hands will smell of roses into the following day. The oil is far too strong to wear on the body.


Score: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 8.

Brand: Anna Riva
Type: Oil
Name: Peace
Bottle: Round, 1/4 fl. oz bottle
Color: Clear
Label: Gold label with name of oil , typical name and logo of company with list of ingredients

Peace oil is my second favorite scent in the Anna Riva line. The smell is a somewhat a chemically "clean" smell, similar to like 'clean linen'-type smells but with cologne notes. It also has a wet-type smell, like something along the lines of "spring showers". There is a very, very subtle hint of hyacinth. A candle dressed with this oil will scent the entire house.

This oil has a fragrance that is a mixture of pine and eucalyptus. Despite the name, it's not going to make you a millionaire but it is a money-drawing oil.


Score: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this an 8.

Brand: Anna Riva
Type: Oil

Bottle: Round, 1/4 fl. oz bottle

Nice muted floral scent, sort of a cross between florals and a woman's perfume. This oils is subtle enough to be worn on the body.

Brand: Anna Riva
Type: Oil
Name: Casino
Bottle: Round, 1/4 fl. oz bottle
Color: Green
Label: Gold label with name of oil , typical name and logo of company with list of ingredients

This oil has a strong men's cologne-type fragrance. It's perhaps a bit too strong to actually wear to the casino. However, if one were to only use it on candles, to dress mojo bags or what not, then it should be fine.


Score: On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this oil a 7.

Jodi Aries Aggravation Factor Proven

The Jury has ruled that Jodi Arias' murder of Travis Alexander was exceptionally cruel and thus it qualifies for the death penalty.

Angela Bassett & Patti LuPone Join Cast Of "American Horror Story: Coven"

It's going to be a diva-fest for the third season of American Horror Story. So far Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and Patty LuPone will be featured in the witchcraft-based season three. This will also be Jessica Lange's last season on the show.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Books Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone

Jodi Arias......Aggravation Factor Decision In 1 Hour

In circa one hour the jury will return with it's verdict. My intuition tells me they will return with it meeting the aggravating factor of cruelty for the death penalty. I would not mind one bit if they stick that needle in her arm. I'm just concerned that if she is giving death that it may be overturned in the future. If the jury votes that there is sufficient evidence for cruelty then the next phase is the sentencing and mitigation phase. If not, then the judge will determine Jodi Arias' fate, either like 25 years or life w/out parole.

My Local Occult Shop

This is my local occult shop. I've been shopping there since like 93/94. It's a wonderful place, a purple building right across the street from a community college. They don't allow people to take pictures on the inside of the store but I will take some pictures of the outside of the building next time I go. This is more of a new-age/metaphysical shop, but they carry most items a worker needs. I get a lot of the offertory or stick candles here, also lots of herbs. They don't carry a lot of candles. They only have one small shelf for 7 day candles, but they do usually carry figure candles, adam & eve, black cat, 7 knob, jumbo, lover's candles, and occasionally they will carry crucifix candles.

Here's their facebook page:

If you go to the photos section, in that photo of the woman helping the older male customer, that's the employee that recently quit. She's been there for a long time and I'll miss her. I won't say her name for her anonymity.

Here's a couple of photos of the front of the building:

I'll probably be going their soon as I have a discount card that has to be used by May 20, so hopefully I'll get some pictures then.

Stanley Drug Co.

Through Momma Starr I learned of another hoodoo drugstore still in existence. I really though that Miller's Rexall was the last one left. This one is in Houston, TX. You can visit their website below. Unfortunately their website is not that good and they don't accept orders online. I did call the store today and spoke to a nice woman who said they do take mail orders but they don't have a catalog and there's not really any way for people to see what they are ordering in advance. However, if you are in the area do try to stop in and check them out. I know the next time I'm in the Houston area I will make sure to pay a visit. They've been in business since 1938.

Here's some pics:

Book Review - Magic When You Need It: 150 Spells You Can't Live Without

The book is, Magic When You Need It: 150 Spells You Can't Live Without by Judika Illes.

The book is mediocre at best although there a few good spells and a few good ideas. There is some hoodoo-related stuff in it. I would rate this book as average if it weren't for the fact that the author clearly lifted spells from well known sources and simply reworked them, sometimes just slightly, while presenting it as if she was the author of the spell. This is unforgivable. Case in point, "Green Devil Repossession Service". This spell uses a green devil candle to have a person pay you the money they owe you. This spell appears to have been lifted from Cat Yronwode at Lucky Mojo. Here's a link to Cat's spell: Green Devil Money Back Spell. I would also add about the scarcity of purchasing a green devil candle. As far as I know, Lucky Mojo is one of the only places to purchase a green devil candle. Most other places only sell them in red or black. So that is another indication that Judika Illes stole this spell. In my opinion, Judika Illes is a thief and should not be rewarded by people purchasing her books. Additionally, if she lifted this spell she probably lifted many more as well.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this book a 1. Do not purchase it. Do not reward thievery.

EDIT: Here's a link to the spell in the book. Compare this to Catherine Yronwode's spell and then draw your own conclusions.

My Problem With

I'm seen so much of this crap that I flipped my wig. I really like It has some of the best prices for books and I love to get bargain books for like a penny plus s/h. However, the reviewing process pisses me off something fierce. There is a lot of abuses going on with reviews. For one thing, people are posting multiple reviews under different accounts. Another thing I've noticed that really pisses me off is people posting reviews for a book they admit they haven't read. Now, I don't mean to be cruel, but what kind of person does that? What possesses someone to write a review and give 5 stars to a book when the reviewer has not read the book?

Look, the purpose of a review is to help the consumer make an educated purchase. Reviews help to protect the consumer from con artists slinging bull shit for megabucks. If you look up a book on and find out it has like ten 1 star ratings and reviews and only like two 5 star reviews, then that's a good warning sign not to purchase the book. However, when people are posting fake reviews, even reviews when they haven't read the book then they are actively working to destroy this safety net for consumers.

Some of the people out there who are leaving these fake reviews or reviews for books they haven't read are just kissing ass. Some are the personal friends and family of the author.

So spread the word. If you see a fake ass review or a review on where the reviewer admits to not reading the book, make note of it. You can hit the "no" button questioning if that review is helpful and when the box pops up make sure to hit "other" and in the comment section make sure to write that this person has not read the book but has written a review. I'm going to contact and let them know that I at least am tired of the review abuses going on. I don't expect anything to be done about it since I'm one person but I will speak my mind.

I will end on a good tip. When I look at reviews for a book I'm interested in purchasing I always go to the 1 star ratings first. Most of the time these reviews are far more honest than the 5 star reviews which for many books are made by the family and friends of the author. In some cases authors have been busted writing glowing reviews for their own damn books. LOL

I want to also urge people to be more vocal on For the longest time I didn't want to leave reviews because they now require your real name to be shown. However, I'm so pissed at some of the stuff I've seen that I'm going ahead and doing it now. Also, if you see a fake review don't be ashamed to leave a comment on that review so that consumers know. You can also tell a person who is writing reviews of books they haven't read to cut that crap out.

Jodi Arias - Full Interview After Conviction

This is the full interview Jodi Arias gave right after being convicted of murder 1. Please note that Jodi Arias had set this interview up in advance if by chance she was convicted. Also note how Jodi Aria still continues to demonize the victim and continues to act as if she is the true victim. Not only does she imply she is being persecuted but also claims that it's the state's fault for the trial as she didn't want to go to trial. She wanted to plead guilty to second degree and only get a few years in jail. She also blames the state for the lies she made about Travis being an abuser and a child molester and claims that if there wasn't a trial none of this stuff (her lies) would have come out. Not one hint of remorse for her actions. She shot him in the head, stabbed him 29 times, slit his throat ear-to-ear, and continues to assassinate his character. She is a monster and I strongly doubt there is any hope of her being rehabilitated. She would be a perfect candidate for the death penalty. Jodi is suicide watch in a psych ward. The aggravation phase will begin on Wednesday. This will be followed by the Mitigation phase. If the jury finds that Travis Alexander's murder was exceptionally cruel then she will be sentenced to death.

Smoke-Free For 1 Month!

Today marks 1 month since I've smoked a cigarette. I've have never in all of my 20+ years as a smoker gone a month without a cigarette. The longest time I ever went without a cigarette was one week. I'm so elated. In honor of my achievement I threw a little party. Bought pizza for the family and bought a cake. I told my family that if they wanted to give me a gift to help encourage me to remain smoke-free that I would accept it. None of them did. In retaliation I told them that I was returning to cigarettes because vaping was too expensive. Of course this is a lie. LOL Well, to hell with them. I'm very proud of myself.
When I first transitioned to vaping e-cigs I began on the 24mg nicotine e-juice. I've now weaned myself down to 12mg nicotine e-juice. I also would vape almost all day long. Now I only vape a few times each day. In fact, what surprises me the most is that as a smoker the first thing you think about when you wake up is to get that first cig. Same thing at night, getting that last cig before you go to bed. Now I can wake up in the morning and completely forget about vaping until the afternoon. Same thing about going to bed. I usually forget about vaping before bedtime. I love it.
I do have bad news to report. A good friend of mine who I got to try e-cigs, even to purchase a starter kit has relapsed back to smoking cigarettes. I don't think she will transition at this point. This is very scary to hear because I'm afraid people are going to wait until they have a health scare before they transition but it may be too late at that point. Don't be like my friend. If you are currently a smoker then please transition to e-cigs. They completely satisfy you. The very first time I tried an e-cig I knew I wasn't going back to "analogs" (cigarettes). I had no withdrawal symptoms and only wanted to smoke a cigarette due to nostalgia, not due to craving. I just keep reminding myself that nostalgia is just memories and I don't have to smoke a cigarette in order to remember what it's like. It's now been a month since I smoked a cigarette and I love it and feel better. I will never go back. The plan is to keep reducing the level of nicotine until I finally get to 0mg, at which point I will be completely free of the nicotine addiction.

Sylvia Browne Predicted Amanda Berry Was Dead...Of Course She Was Recently Found Alive

It doesn't bother me that Sylvia Browne was wrong. Psychics aren't perfect. Nobody is. What bothers me is that she charges so much for her readings. That's the rip-off part, her prices. In this example it should be stated this was a free reading and the mother of Amanda Berry did not pay for this even though the reading was wrong.

Sylvia Browne's problem stems from her being a 'celebrity psychic'. As a celebrity psychic she must portray herself as being more powerful that she really is. She can never say, "I don't know", "I'm sorry but I'm not getting anything". So she feels pressured into delivering something even when we real, down-to-earth non-famous psychics aren't afraid to tell someone when we are not picking up anything. Not all of the blame lies on her exclusively though. In the past when Sylvia was wrong before part of the blame lay on the the person asking the question as they tried to test her or purposefully withheld information as if they didn't need to tell her one thing and she was just supposed to read their mind and know everything. Real psychics are people. The stronger their empathy for fellow human beings is, the stronger the gift.

How The Waiting List Works

Spring and Summer is my busiest time of the year. Everyone wants to hire me during this time. So this blog entry will be to explain how the waiting list works so to avoid confusion as I know many people have questions about this as I receive many inquiries on it.

If a client hires me and I am free then of course I will start on their case right away, meaning there is no waiting list.

However, in times where multiple clients want to hire me in the same general time period then I will create a waiting list. If I am free, not working on a case, then the first client to send me payment, as in me receiving it, will be the first case I work. Then if I receive other payments from clients while still working on that case I will then create a waiting list for clients in the order I received their payments.

I do not save spots. If there is a waiting list then the only way to get on the waiting list is to send in payment. Talking to me doesn't count. Getting a reading from me  doesn't count. The only thing that counts is sending in your payment.

I will not tell clients how many people are ahead of them. Instead, once I receive payment I will then contact the client to give them an estimated time I would be able to start the work if there is awaiting list. I will not tell this in advance of receiving payment. I will also not tell potential clients if there is currently a waiting list or how many people are on it. I will only state if I am currently free or not at the time of the inquiry. I will not notify a would-be client when I am free so that they can then send their payment. I get a few of these types of requests. It doesn't work like that. If you want to hire me, send in payment.

Note: There is no waiting list on readings. The waiting list only applies to clients who hire me for full, complete works.

It's Over.....Jodi Arias Guilty Of First Degree, Premeditated Muder

It's finally over, or most of it is. I'm so very pleased that earthly justice was given in this case. Jodi Arias has been found guilty on murder 1. All 12 jurors believed the murder was premeditated. Tomorrow starts the aggravation phase to determine if the case qualifies for the death sentence. Basically the jury must conclude if Jodi acted extraordinarily cruel or depraved in the murder. After the aggravation phase comes the mitigation phase where Jodi's experts seek to convince the jury that Jodi should not be put to death. So can't wait to see how this goes. I will state again that my biggest fear is if she is given death for her murder of Travis Alexander then I fear it may be overturned in later years. I would love if she be given death and it would stick but I fear she's not a quitter and will try every tick in the book to get out from this. So personally, I could accept her being executed or given life w/out parole, but I definitely don't want this conviction to be tossed out in the future.

Verdict Reached In Jodi Arias Trial

The Jury pushed the button today, indicating they have reached their verdict. The verdict will be read today here in about 2 hours (circa 3:30 PM CST).

I'm really scared. If she is found guilty in the first and then later in the sentencing phase gets life in jail w/out parole then I think everything will be fine. If she is sentenced to death then I feel there will be problems with a possible overturning of the case. However, if she is found guilty on a lesser charge I will be devastated.

For The X-Files Fans Out There...

I discovered this during a re-watch of the series a few years ago. I'm currently doing another re-watch which has prompted me to think about it again and I've decided to go ahead and share. I've already discussed it on other websites so I thought I might as well list it here.

The X-Files was such a unique series, huh? Well, did you know that they routinely took older episodes and reworked them, slightly changing them to create new episodes? See for yourself.

"Ice" = A group of scientists discovers parasites in Antarctica that causes them to become violent and kill.
"Firewalker" = A group of scientists discover a parasite in a Volcano that causes them to become violent, freak out, and attempt to infect new hosts.


"Ghost In The Machine" = A homicidal Artificial Intelligence takes over a building.
"Kill Switch" = A homicidal Artificial Intelligence attempts to take over the world.


"Blood" = Mind control experiment causes people to think that electrical devices are ordering them to kill.

"Wetwired" = Mind control experiment causes people who watch t.v. to kill people.


"Fresh Bones" = Voodoo and the torture and murder of illegal immigrants.
"The List" = Transmigration and the torture and murder of prison inmates.


"Excelsus Dei" = Invisible phantoms attack the staff of a nursing home.
"The Walk" = A VA patient  with the ability to produce out of body experiences attacks his perceived enemies, fellow patients and  military personnel (invisible phantom).


"Tooms" = A mutant who can squeeze into the smallest of places must consume human livers to survive.
"Teliko" = A mutant who can squeeze into the smallest of places must consume pituitary glands in order to survive. Note that both 'Tooms' and 'Teliko' even start with the same letter!

Okay, these are just mere examples. Thee are countless more. Next time you re-watch the X-Files see if you can find more.

Jodi Arias - It's Almost Over

UPDATE - 5/7/2013 - All the lawyers were at the court house this morning which caused many people to think that the jury was about to release their verdict. However, the defense lawyers just left so that would indicate that the jury has not yet reached a verdict.

Last Friday I told my family that the jury would reach a verdict on Tuesday sometime in the 11:00 hour. Well, I just learned today that the jury will resume at 12 noon my time tomorrow so if that original prediction is true or not it would have to be in the 11:00 hour their time. However, I'm not going to try to get anymore psychic impressions off of this. I'm getting to anxious and fearful she's going to get a lesser conviction. So I will no longer try to "psychiclly"-dip into the case and am just going to let it play out.

So I will stick to my original impression that Jodi will get convicted of 1st degree and will receive life in jail w/out parole. If by chance she does get the death sentence then I would be extremely worried about the sentence being overturned in the future and commuted to life w/out parole, or worse, the conviction thrown out all together.

But I will tell your right now that I worry about my mother. My mother has been obsessed with this case, watching it every single day. I'm afraid she's going go off the deep end when this whole thing is finally over. Every single day she talks about it, calls up people and talks about it, and it just consumes most of her day. It's not healthy.

Oh, and here's some more news about Jodi that will make your blood boil. The bitch's so-called "art", which has been selling for thousands of dollars now, is all copied! She just copied stuff from print ads in magazines! It's all copyrighted stuff and she is making thousands of dollars off of it because she hasn't yet been officially convicted. I hope she gets sued.

Here's a few pics that she copied.

Oh, and now Jodi supports battered women and is advertising "survivor" t-shirts. Please.

Papa Jim's Botanica = Rip Off On S/H

Wow. I was going to place an order at Papa Jim's Botanica for 5 items, including some oils I planned on trying and writing a review on. So I went through the check out process and got to s/h charges and was blown away that they were going to charge $42 just for s/h for 5 items. There were no choices for shipping either. It was just one flat rate of $42. I then went back and deleted my shopping cart down to one item to find out how much it would be and even with just one item they wanted $17 s/h. So that my readers is ridiculous. So I guess I will not be purchasing anything from Papa Jim's ever.

Edit: I went back and checked on this. One 8x10 religious picture (basically a sheet of paper) will cost $12 s/h. That's is freaking horrible! It should be like $2 or under.

A Tale Of Two Marthas -Or- The Real Martha Vs. The Imposter

Okay, I'm writing this blog to clear up something that I guess a lot of people are confused about. Please look at this image at the link below.

Mami Wata

This is Mami Wata, an African goddess who is sometimes portrayed as a mermaid.

Now that image that was associated with Mami Wata somehow also started to be associated with a Voodou spirit named Lubana. Please check out my entry of Lubana at the link below.


Now, I'm going to say this and be done with it. Remember, I'm talking about hoodoo/rootwork/conjure, here. That is not St. Martha. I get so many emails and comments from people who seriously don't know that that is not St. Martha. People have statues of this spirit on their altars and firmly believe they are working with St. Martha. They are mistaken.

I don't care if you decide to work with her or not but she is not St. Martha and she has nothing to do with conjure work. Both Mami Wata and Lubana have nothing to do with conjure work as they are associated with African Traditional Religions.

This is St. Martha. She is the one and only "St. Martha The Dominator":

St. Martha

St. Martha gets he role as dominator not because of the color of the skin, like some falsely teach that the "black Martha" is the dominator, but because in legend she dominated and subdued a dragon. Just as she dominated that dragon she can also dominate your enemies.

So if you want to work with Mami Wata or Lubana, go for it. If you are in those religions that venerate her, so be it and power to you. However if you are doing conjure work you really need to stop promoting the belief that this image of a black woman carrying a snake and having a child in her lap is St. Martha because it's not. In conjure work when we work with the saints, we work with the saints. This means they aren't masks for other spirits.

Again, I have no problem with people working with Mami Wata or Lubana. However the notion that she is also St. Martha needs to be nipped in the bud at least for conjure workers. I understand how people in those religions who equate African spirits with saints would think she is St. Martha but for conjure workers we need to realize she is not St. Martha. I mean, C'mon, her name isn't even Martha! LOL

Testimony From A Client

This is Juana (fake name for anonymity). Juana recently hired me for prosperity work and love-drawing work. Juana has already seen results and things are manifesting rather quickly for her and this is what she has to say. I've had to censor some things for her protection. Like with all my testimonials she has given permission to post.

Okay, I want to touch on this because I get this a lot and people don't seem to know about it. Whenever you do love-work or have love-work done then one of the side-effects is that people seemingly come out of the woodwork and show interest. That's just a side-effect of the work. It doesn't mean you should hook up with the first person who makes contact with you but it does serve as an omen than things are on track. Remember to use your judgement and have fun during that time.

Reminder On Free Work

Free work is for emergencies only. An emergency is based on the situation, not whether or not a person can afford to hire a worker.

Let me add the following. It's pretty hard to claim that you desperately need help for financial reasons and can't afford to hire a worker when both you and your husband have jobs. I don't know why I'm getting a lot of these people as of late but I am. Please stop wasting my time by trying to get a freebie. If both you and your husband (or wife) have jobs you can afford conjure work. Usually what happens is these people want work for a better job, new promotion, etc., as if that counts for emergency work. It doesn't. You have a job. Therefore the wanting of more money is not an emergency. You got a roof over your family, food on the table, plus both you and your partner have jobs, = no emergency and you are just wasting my time.

I don't reward parasites.

For those new readers out there, please don't be offended by this blog entry. I do a LOT of free work for people who are truly in need. Unfortunately I get a lot of parasites who contact me looking for freebies as well. I want them to stop emailing me, that's all.

Unsolved Mysteries - Oklahoma Case Solved

Back in 1992, Wendy Camp, Cynthia Britto, and Lisa Kreagar disappeared. The case was eventually shown in a segment on Unsolved Mysteries.

I have to revise this blog entry because I let my anger get the best of me. On the Unsolved Mysteries segment the father of Wendy's son and his mother claims that they picked them up for a visit. They were supposed to bring them back home but on the drive home they claimed that Wendy began yelling and screaming so they dropped the three off at a Wal Mart. The three were never seen again. Now we know for a fact that they were murdered and that more than one person was involved. I won't name names here but I expect there to be at least 2 more arrests made with this case. 1 man, Grover Pruitt, has already been arrested for knowing that the bodies where there on the property w/out telling anyone. Ida Pruitt passed away in 2011 so if she was involved in the murder she can't be brought to earthly justice.

The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, "enlightened") is a name 
given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically the 
name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret 
society founded on May 1, 1776 to oppose superstition, prejudice, 
religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to 
support women's education and gender equality. The Illuminati were 
outlawed along with other secret societies by the Bavarian government 
leadership with the encouragement of the Roman Catholic Church, and 
permanently disbanded in 1785.[1] In the several years following, the 
group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed 
they had regrouped and were responsible for the French Revolution.... 

The Illuminati empowers young men and women with Wealth Fame and 
Power, once you are a certified member of the New World Order you will

Rats! My May Water Is Ruined!

It started raining today, May 1, at about 5pm. So I hurriedly put some bowls outside to catch the water. Unfortunately I put them too near the house and the run off from the roof filled the bowls. Now the water is yellow, probably from bird droppings on the roof. I tried filtering it through coffee filters but it's no use. My May Water this year is ruined and that really pisses me off because this is the second year in a row that it's rained on May 1. That would have been some powerful water.

May Day

Today is May Day. For Wiccans this is what they call Beltane, one of their high holy days and a celebration of the return of life and nature.

For conjure workers, May Day is noted as the day one gathers dew before sunrise. The dew is then used to wash the face and body in order to maintain or restore youth and beauty.

Unfortunately we didn't have any dew this morning in my area. So that means I will have to wait until the first rainfall this month. Last year it actually rained on May Day, all day long. The rainwater is then gathered and used in the same manner. However, May dew is stronger because dew is "magic water", neither falling as rain or gathered from rivers, lakes, or streams.

Perhaps the most titillating method of performing this spring rite is to strip naked and roll around in the dew. If one were to do this I would suggest a very rural area and not a more suburban setting! One can also just wet their hands in the dew and rub their faces if they so choose. Otherwise the dew can be gathered by repeatedly throwing a cloth over vegetation until it is soaked with dew and then ringing the cloth out over a bowl to collect the water. The water is then bottled for use through the year.
