Made My Day

I had a client send me a gift box today. Totally blew me away. Everything was beautifully wrapped in tissue and tied with ribbon. Got some really cool things. Lots of conjure stuff, like candles and oils, even got a large fluorite marble and a high john root. Got gourmet chocolate too! I was just so shocked and delighted. So I sent a lengthy 'thank you' a while back. There was even a little present for niece included. Totally blew me away.

The Whore Of Babylon And The Woman Clothed With The Sun

I found myself getting into a debate with a Catholic over this the other day. This will be a blog that is unconnected to conjure work. It's about religion. If this bothers you or if you can't tolerate other people's opinions then you might just skip this one.

The topic is the Whore of Babylon as found in the book of Revelation. I will present a passage and give some of the identities of the Whore as believed by various groups. I will also state my opinion. Readers are free to form their own opinions as to who the Whore is.

Revelation 17:3-19 KJV

3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

The identity of the Whore:

Secular Historians believe the Whore of Babylon to be a symbol of Rome and the Roman empire.

Protestants believe the Whore is the Roman Catholic Church.

Catholics primarily believe the Whore is Islam. However, a small percentage of Catholics believe that the Whore is the Roman Catholic Church, post Second Vatican Council.

A minority of people believe the Whore is Jerusalem.

A minority of people believe the Whore is the United States.

My personal opinion:

Some people believe that Jerusalem is the Whore because Jerusalem, Israel, and even Judea are called whores by the OT prophets for their idolatry. However, it's very clear that Jerusalem doesn't have the political power that is a major attribute of the Whore of Babylon. Likewise, some people believe that United States is the Whore of Babylon. Actually, the United States fits many of the characteristics of the Whore; however, the Whore she is not. (Interestingly, the original plan for the Statue of Liberty was that of a woman holding a chalice instead of a torch. Reference the chalice the Whore drinks from.) In the beginning and end of the book of Revelation John of Patmos clearly writes that these are things that will shortly come to pass. Thus, John would not be discussing things that would only originate two thousand years after he died. However, it is conceivable that he would be writing about things that may take place within a couple of centuries. John of Patmos wrote Revelation in the first century A.D. Constantine founded the Roman Catholic Church in the 4th century A.D. (Catholics deny that Constantine created the Roman Catholic Church and insist that Jesus created it. Protestants believe Jesus created the Church and Constantine created the Roman Catholic Church.)  As a protestant I personally favor the interpretation of the Whore as being the Roman Catholic Church. She is dressed in purple and scarlet, with purple, scarlet, and white being the main colors of the Roman Catholic Church. The Whore is wealthy and decadent, just like the Roman Catholic Church. The Whore fornicates with the kinds of the earth, just like the Roman Catholic Church has been in bed with the monarchies down through time. The Whore is filled with sexual immorality. Enough said. We all know about the controversies with priests molesting children and nothing being done about it. However, from the very beginning sexual immorality has always been a plague within the powers of the Roman Catholic Church. Popes frequented prostitutes, had mistresses, had illegitimate children. The Whore has power over the earth, just like the Roman Catholic Church held power over most of the world throughout her life. The Whore is drunk on the blood of the saints. If anyone is familiar with the history of the Roman Catholic Church then they should be well aware of the Inquisition, of the torture and killing of "heretics", and of anyone who dared speak out against the corruption within the power of the Roman Catholic Church. People forget that the Roman Catholic Church killed people just for possessing a bible, let alone attempting to translate it into another language.

So there you have it. I'm a Protestant. For me it's very clear that the Whore of Babylon is the Roman Catholic Church. However, you are free to form your own opinions. The reason why I even blogged on this right now is there is a schism forming with some Protestants who don't understand traditional Protestant beliefs and who are now pushing teachings that the Whore is something else. Usually that something else doesn't fit the attributes of the Whore as indicated in Revelation. Then it seems that some Catholics are pushing to make peace with certain Protestants but only if those Protestants will accept that the Whore is not the Roman Catholic Church. I'm not opposed to peace but I do think the differences between beliefs of Catholics and Protestants may be too much to overcome.

I need to stress that I'm not a Catholic-basher. When I say it is my opinion that the Whore is the Roman Catholic Church I'm not talking about the individual believers. I'm talking about the power structure, the wicked people in power, in control. They are the Whore. And Revelation makes it clear that God will destroy the Whore. It literally reads she will be destroyed in one hour. Now, does that mean on literally hour or a prophetic hour, that I can't answer for you. What Revelation makes clear is that whatever the Whore is, you better flee from it or you will share in her plagues.

Now, one of the things that Protestants believe is that in Revelation the two main women symbolize the Church. The Whore is the apostate, Roman Catholic Church and will be destroyed by God. The second woman, the Woman Clothed With The Sun, is the faithful Church (Some also believe her to be Israel), the true Bride of Christ. Catholics believe the Woman Clothed With The Sun is Mary.

On another note, St. Malachhy, a Christian mystic, allegedly had a vision of all of the Popes that would reign. Now, St. Malachy's should not be put up on the same level as the Bible but it is interesting no-less. According to St. Malachy, the next Pope will be the last Pope. Rome will then be destroyed and, "The terrible judge will judge his people". St. Malchy described the last pope as, "Peter The Roman". Well, one of the leading contestants for the new Pope is indeed a man named Peter. So that is very interesting.

Tales From The Casino

I went to the casino this morning about 9am. Left about 2pm. I took $500 with me. The last time I went I won $4,000.00 and then turned around and blew it all. Today I won $6,000.00, blew a $1,000.00 to try to earn more, and walked out with $5,000.00.

Let me tell you. You need a good gambling hand? Need work done to win the big dough? I'm your man. Shoot me an email and I'll hook you up! Not only can I make you a powerful hand or do powerful conjure work to rake in that cash but I can also give you wonderful tips for the casino!

Addendum: Yes, I did conjure work for this last night. I did the work to return the money I previously lost. Also, I received my coupons from the casino in the mail! I haven't been getting them lately. About $100 in free play plus a free buffet. I'm still shooting for the free hotel nights!

Ok here goes.
I've had a couple readings, which I've felt like I was just being told good things I wanted to hear.. Not with Doc he will tell you good and bad news.. Which is what i needed! at first I thought I was going to be an emotional wreck during my reading but I was surprisingly not! He has a great attitude from start to finish. I felt like it was truth.. Even when he said "I have some bad news"..& my stomach had knots in it, I didn't feel like he was telling me what I wanted to hear like others. & things he said were totally on the spot things about my life! I'm glad I chose to have a reading with him and will definitely have another soon!

Yes, I'm no fortune teller. I'm a psychic. If all you want is to be told what you want to hear they you will have to go elsewhere. I'm the real deal. I call it as I see it.

Spiritual Cleansings For Pets

I got an email on this this morning and I'm glad I did as it reminded me that I've been meaning to blog on this.

Pets need spiritual cleansings just like people do. The good news is that they don't need them as often as people do. However, if a pet is sick then I would definitely recommend one and then do them when your intuition tells you that you should.

As far as techniques go, you can use any technique you would use on a person. I prefer a rub down with candles for my pets as it's easier. However, if you prefer you can use the spiritual baths.

After you finish a spiritual cleansing on a pet I would recommend finishing with dressing the collar with protection oil or lightly anointing them with protection sachet powder.

For Momma Starr .....Foot Washings

In my Man, Myth & Magic encyclopedias I found the following.


It's an image of a foot washing. It is listed under the entry of Pentecostalism. The description of the image reads:

"Among some West Indian Pentacostalists the washing of each other's feet is an established rite. Pentecostalism has shown a special appeal and in Britain the most vigorous sects among the West Indian population are Pentacostalist."

Foot Washing Ceremony

Att: Voodou Crowd

I'm getting some nasty comments from people of the Voodou crowd. These people are ignorant of what hoodoo/rootwork/conjure is and they are claiming it as if it's theirs' and that I don't know what I'm talking about. Look, I'm real easy to get along with. I accept people who have different opinions. Believing something different than I do doesn't bother me in the slightest. People are entitled to their opinions. However, I don't put up with bull shit. Conjure work is not Voodou. People get caught up on the long-standing error of white academics that everything associated with Black spirituality is Voodou. It's not true. Yes, the use of the term "voodoo" by outsiders to refer to the practice is quite common. It's still doesn't mean that it's accurate.

Yes, both conjure workers and Voodou folks work with the saints. The difference is that in conjure work the saints are who they are. In Voodou the saints are masks for African spirits. So I got people on my other blog leaving me nasty comments, cussing me out, telling me I don't know a damn thing about Voodou when in fact I'm not even blogging on Voodou. I'm not a Voodou practitioner. I'm a conjure worker. I blog on conjure work, a.k.a. hoodoo or rootwork.

Finally, let me talk about "Black St. Martha". For some reasons this causes a lot of problems with people. "Black St. Martha" is NOT St. Martha. She is Lubana. She is a spirit associated with Voodou, especially 21 Divisions.

Lubana
http://www.ezilikonnen.com/dominican/filomena-lubana.html

Now, this will blow your mind. Some of the people who work with "Black Martha" will tell you that people have it all wrong, especially the uninitiated. "Black St. Martha", a.k.a. Lubana, is not the black woman holding the snake, but the snake itself! LOL I have written a blog entry on Lubana at the link below.

http://thedemoniacal.blogspot.com/2011/04/lubana.html

Now, for some reason Lubana has been identified with St. Martha but the "real" St. Martha was a Jewish woman, though in art she is portrayed as "white".

Look, I don't give a damn if you work with "Black St. Martha". It doesn't bother me. You do what you want to do. However, "Black St. Martha" is not St. Martha and never will be St. Martha. Just like Chango/Shango is not St. Barbara. In conjure work the saints are who they are. When we work with St. Peter or St. Anthony we are not working with Papa Legba or Eshu. We are working with St. Peter or St. Anthony. It's not that difficult a concept to grasp.

Calling People On The Phone

This is probably the 6th or 7th time I've blogged on this. I simply cannot call a person and talk to them on the phone for free. My time is valuable. Even if a client purchases work for me that still doesn't mean that I will call them and talk to them whenever they want. There is a reason why I do this. It's not because I'm mean or cruel. It's because my time is valuable.

When I first started out as a young worker I was a push over. I would call people and they would waste hours of my time for nothing. They would tell me their stories, make promises of hiring me which they would never keep, and waste hours of my time. I'm not a push-over any longer. If you want to talk to me over the phone you will pay me. The rate is $50 for 30 minutes or $100 for an hour. If you want to converse with me in email then it's free.

This is the typical email I get.

"I have an emergency. My number is 441-fake number".

Of course I won't call the person. If you can email me then there's nothing stopping you from telling me what's going on in the email.

Again, even if a client hires me for work that doesn't mean they can talk to me over the phone any time they want. I have clients from years past that still think this. I had a woman about 2 weeks ago who I did work for like almost 4 years ago send me an email asking me to call her. It's not going to happen. If you want to talk to me over the phone then you will pay me.

Another thing I need to mention is emails. With new clients part of my job is to explain the process and answer questions. However, sometimes a would-be client will go overboard. I can explain everything and answer questions in like 4 or 5 emails. But some would-be clients want to send like 20+ emails, often repeating questions I've answered and topics I've already addressed. So because my time is valuable I'm not going to repeat myself. Instead, when a would-be client is still sending me multiple emails even after I've already explained the process and answered their questions then I will simply tell the would-be client that I have explained the process to them and will not repeat myself. That if they want to hire me they can. but I'm not going to continually send emails back to back over a lengthy period of time. Let me be real honest. I had a alleged would-be client who continually emailed me over several months. She always promised she was hiring me for work. I had to tell her several times that I'm not going to repeat myself. Eventually after the 4th time of having to tell her that I wasn't going to repeat myself I just got fed up with her and told her I would not take on her case and for her to stop emailing me. In another case I had a man who wanted to hire me but it would be over a year before he could get the money. Well, that's fine but I know that I'm sure as hell not going to be continually answering his questions over the next year. So I finally told him to stop emailing me until he had the money and then I could explain the process and answer his questions at that time. Of course it happened that he ended up not getting his money. I already knew he wasn't going to get it but can you imagine the time I would have wasted if I allowed him to continually email me every other day asking questions?

Again, I'm not cruel or mean. I'm just not a push-over. I don't allow people to yank my chain. My time is valuable. I give my all for my clients. In return I get paid money.

Finally, I want to let people know that workers are keener than people think. We often know if a person is actually going to hire us or is just yanking our chains. That's why most workers make people pay for a consultation because at least they will get paid for their time. Now, I don't charge for email consultations but for phone consultations I do charge. So it's real simple. If you want to email me you can. If you want to speak to me over the phone you will pay me. I'm not mean or cruel. I'm just not a push-over.

God Bless,

-Doc

Oklahoma's Spanish Channel

Here in Oklahoma we have such a large Hispanic population that we have our own Spanish channel. I love to watch it even though I don't speak Spanish. For some reason it's really entertaining to watch commercials and news reports where they talk about current events in Oklahoma in Spanish. A lot of it is "Spanglish" as well, where they will use a mixture of English and Spanish words. I should probably take some classes to learn the language.

Blizzard

We're supposed to be getting a blizzard today but at this point I doubt it's going to happen. The weather guy said yesterday that it would hit by noon and that we would get up to 8 inches. Then noon came and went and nothing. Now they are saying 1 to 3 inches with it hitting later tonight. But I seriously don't think anything will happen. It's just lightly rained off and on today. I know further west and down into Texas they are getting hit hard.

Addendum: News just said that just west of us they got like 17 inches of snow. They are saying we are now going to get like 6+ inches but even the weather guy is saying he doesn't agree with that and we might not get anything.

Update: The storm is ending. We aren't getting any snow in my area by west of us they have got like 20-25 inches of snow with 5ft drifts. At least one person has died when their roof collapsed due to snow.

When A Blackened Candle Is Meaningless

I get a lot of questions on this from my clients so I thought I would share this. Most people know that when you are burning a 7 day candle and the glass is black that it's not a good sign. Now, the thing is that it all depends on the type of candle. I use a lot of Reed Candle Co. candles. The thing is that their black 7 day candles ALWAYS burn black. It has something to do with the black dye they use. If you run your fingers on the side it's not like soot but a liquid, greasy black stuff. So in this case one cannot interpret this to mean that it's a bad omen.

Tales From The Casino - A Cautionary Tale

I just got back from the casino. I walked in with $200. I hit $4,000.00 on Mystical Unicorn. I played a $5 spin and got all 5 symbols for bonuses. That's an automatic $500 just for getting all 5 on $5 bet. Then on the 100 free bonus spins I got $3,500.00. After getting my win I literally got up and was preparing to leave and then a new thought struck me. Now would be a wonderful time to visit the high roller room. That was my downfall. I blew the entire win and by the time I left I was $1,000.00 in the hole. So let this be a warning to all casino goers. When you win big immediately leave! As punishment I will no longer play $5 spins for a VERY LONG TIME. I'm going to be a low wager until I learn my lesson.

On a lighter note I saw the funniest thing. The casino was hosting some kind of masquerade ball. There were people dressed up in some of the coolest outfits. Well, this woman to the side of me on the other end of the row was dressed up sort of like a peacock. She literally had all these feathers coming off of her and she was wearing a mask. Well, this drunk guy rounds the corner and sees here. You know how when someone is scared they grab their heart and like stumble backwards. That what the guy did when he first saw her. It was the funniest thing. LOL There was another woman dressed up like a gothic troll doll. She had her long hair literally straight up like cone or peak. It had glitter and branches and stuff in it. It looked pretty cool.

Mystical Unicorn


For now on I'm no longer going to mention how much I win at casinos. I'm not a braggart but I am starting to think I'm "tempting the fates" by talking about it.

Movie Review Of 'Beautiful Creatures'



SPOILER ALERT!!! Some spoilers for the movie are contained in the following review!
*
*
*
*
*
*

I just got back from watching this movie. I had such high hopes for it. I love the archetype of the witch, my favorite monster. So where do I begin? I think I will start with the bad so I can end on a positive note.

The movie is a mixture of Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hair Spray. The Southern accents are atrocious. The movie does not give the feeling that it is set in a "real" universe but always unfolds as if it is a fairy tale. There is little to no character development. Every single Southern cliche is crammed into this movie. There are a couple of scenes of Christian-bashing. The movie has some sexist scenes which really surprised me since the author of the books is a woman. I'll go ahead and spoil this little bit. In Beautiful Creatures witches don't like the term witch and prefer the term 'caster' instead. Well, when a caster turns 16 they are claimed for either the darkness or the light. Male casters are masters of their own fate and can choose to be either of the darkness of the light. Female casters are slaves to their destinies and cannot choose. They are simply claimed by either good or evil despite their free will. The way it is presented is that a woman has both a false self and secret self. When young the female doesn't know her secret self and when she turns 16 it rears it's head and that's who she really is, either good or evil. So men are masters of their fate while women are slaves to destiny. I really disliked that. Another thing I disliked is the use of the "magical negro", a supporting black character who has magical powers and who saves the day but has zero character development. It's like they only exist to save white people. There are like 2 black characters in this movie and the main woman is of the "magical negro" variety. That really bothered me. I really disliked the slant toward evil. Evil or dark casters are portrayed as far more seductive and fun while the good casters all look like eccentric drag queens. There are sub-plots and stories/elements that are not properly covered and don't quite make sense. There is a snow scene where the snow looks incredibly fake and none of the snow gets in Lena, the female lead's hair. Then the full moon is shown during the day time. Now, the moon can appear in the day time sky but it never appears in the day light as a full moon. The full moon always rises after sunset. Finally, winter time in South Carolina is portrayed as if there are no seasons. Like it's summer year-round.

So now for the good parts. Unfortunately this will be a rather short paragraph. The good things about this movie is that the scenery was very beautiful. The special effects were also good. There is a scene where the "magical negro" is offering food at the grave of her uncle. She was giving her uncle some of his favorite food in life in return for his help. That was a good scene. That's about it.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this movie a 5. It's perfectly average in every way.

I have been reading Doc Conjure's awesome blogs for a while now. I wrote to him a couple of times, and he was so kind with each. I have read so many horror stories about people who hire others to do spiritual work for them, only to find out the person wasn't legit. Doc Conjure was the ONLY person I wanted to work with, because he is wonderful, kind and obviously "the real deal". I have many health issues that cause a great deal of pain, and because of this have put on a lot of weight. Doc set a candle for me, and JUST from that my pain started going down, and for the first time in years I LOST 5lbs! I have been feeling so much better that I actually have HOPE! I completely had none before, and felt like giving up! God Bless you Doc!!! You are not only an amazingly talented worker, you are also a beautiful human being! I want EVERYONE to know what     you did for me! And you can use my REAL first name:)

Tales From The Casino

Literally just got back from a Valentine's bash at the casino. I won $3,227.25. It was my first hand-pay and I won it on a $5 spin. I'm kind of bummed that I have to pay taxes on it. What I do know is that I won't be visiting the casino anytime soon. I don't want to be tempted to blow it. What happened was that I was playing my usual 20cent -50cent bet and then on a whim I started to bet $1. I won $756. Then I thought, "What the heck!" and started betting $5. I almost blew the entire win and got down to $36 and won $3,227.25. It's my highest win yet. And the thing is that I almost didn't go tonight. I didn't get any sleep last night because I came down with a cold. I was shivering with a fever for about 2 hours and then the fever broke but I felt lousy the entire day and didnt' get any sleep. Glad I went!

Valentine's Humor

I was on YouTube and saw this in a comment. Valentine's Day has now been renamed to "Singles Awareness Day". LOL

Happy Mardi Gras!







Hope everyone who is celebrating tonight has tons of fun. Unfortunately it's pretty much going to snow all day to today in my area. So go out there and have a good one in my honor!

Beautiful Creatures



I can't wait for this movie! I think it has the chance of being the new The Craft, possibly even spawning sequels like Twilight. I know it's based on a series of books but I haven't read them. I love the part about how she says that they don't prefer the word 'witch'. Reminds me of my when my niece asked me if I was a witch. I had to tell her that we don't like that word and prefer other terms like "conjure worker", "spiritual worker", or even just "worker" instead.

The Vampire Diaries - Witches

I have a love-hate relationship with The Vampire Diaries. I got hooked on it not because it's a great show but because of how evil the character of Damon is and how he continually got away with literal murder. What I do love about the show is the witches. I really love how most of the witches on the show are black. The main family of witches, the Bennett Witches, originally lived in Salem, MA, but during the witch trials they fled to Mystic Falls. The witches on the show can be bad asses. However, at the same time they are often nothing more than the slaves of vampires and that is the one thing I can't stand. If I were to rewrite the show I would have the focus on the Bennett witches and not the vampires!

The witches on the show all have supernatural powers and can do magic and spells. They can also communicate with spirits and have psychic powers. The witches possess other powers such as to levitate objects or to cause fires. One of the most often used power is to create an aneurysm by bursting blood vessels in the heads of vampires and even werewolves when necessary. This doesn't kill them because of their supernatural healing abilities but it does incapacitate them due to the pain. The only drawback to being a witch is that certain spells can be so draining of a witch's life-force that they can lead to the death of the witch. Another perk of being a witch on the show is that most tend to age very slowly. Many witches are in the later 80s or even older but look like they are only in their 40s and 50s.

My Trip To A Botanica

Yesterday I paid a visit to a small botanica, the same one I've posted pictures of some time back. While there a young woman came in asking about Santa Muerte. She kept going on and on about how she watched a documentary about prostitutes and Santa Muerte and how she just became fascinated with her and wanted to work with her. So I chimed in and gave her some advice, like to approach the white Santa Muerte first and to ask her to show her a sign if she was meant to work with her. I explained to her that if she does work with Santa Muerte that Santa Muerte will need her own altar and that she can't share an altar with any other saint and I told her some of the things that she liked. The owner of the botanica told her to always call on God first before working with her or else she would be putting Santa Muerte before God. I was kind of worried because the young gal kept talking about how trendy Santa Muerte is and she even used the word 'fad'. I told her that she can't treat Santa Muerte like a fad, that it's serious and a long-term commitment but I'm not sure if she quite understood that. She ended up buying a 7 day candle to the white Santa Muerte.

Tales From The Casino

I wasn't even planning on going to the casino tonight but around 6 I started to get ancy to get out of the house. Spent $40 and won $887. Pretty good night. So glad I decided to go. That's not a normal win for me. On a normal "good night" I usually walk out with $300 and spent between $20-$60 to win it. So I was real pleased.

I'm just mad that I didn't stay longer. There was a storm coming so I decided to leave about midnight before it hit. Saw all of my usual "casino friends" and had a blast. My casino friends always give me a hard time because I'm not a large better. I mean, I cycle from like 20 cents to maybe a $1. However, I won't that $887 off of a 50 cent bet.

My Little Ghostie

I think I have a little invisible friend in my house. For the past 2 nights I went out for the evening. When I returned the items sitting on top of a table were on the floor, as if someone literally swept it off. I have dogs but they can't reach the table, let alone climb it and there is nothing on the table that would tempt them. Additionally, I left my computer on and when I came home last night it looked like someone was trying to do a search as it was on google and there was a "gar" typed into the search field with a drop down box with suggestions. Very weird.

Now, here's where things get a bit scary. I told my sister about this and she immediately thought that it was evil. She said she just knew that whatever it was that it was evil and meant to hurt me. Well, what she said made me remember about the client I recently had where I sensed a demon was after someone. It was my very first encounter with an actual demon and not just an earth-bound spirit. So I guess I'll be amping up my protection tonight and doing a strong cleansing. If anything else happens I'll have to go full-blown run-devil-run-type exorcism!

Visit To The Local Occult Shop

I had to stop by the local occult shop today to pick up some things for a client. While I was there this customer came in and complained of having chronic pain. I didn't want to butt-in but I eventually showed her how she could burn off the pain with a white candle and demonstrated it for her. But before I did I asked her what her religion was. The only reason why I asked is because I didn't want to offend her. Well, one of the worker yelled out, "You Don't Have To Answer That!". I was like, "Look Lady, you should know the only reason I'm asking is so that I don't offend her." But the thing is that even though I'm a regular customer there and know all the workers, and usually spend an hour or more talking to them each time I go, I still have to be "in the closet" with conjure work. The reason being is that as soon as you mention that you are a Christian or that you work with God, the Bible, etc., many of the Wiccans and New-Agers automatically believe you to be the "YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL WITCH!"-type of Christian. So to avoid problems I simply don't talk about what I do. I think they think I'm a Wiccan but I'm not sure. Well, anyway, I was telling this woman that she needs to be doing regular cleansings, especially if anyone suffers from a chronic condition. I gave her a few suggestions. Well, the woman believed in God but when I told her about using the Bible she wigged out and said that was just too weird. I was like, huh? She was a person who believed in God, and evidently magic as she was there at the occult shop, but for some reason she thought using the bible was just weird.

And while I'm on the subject, I have to be really tight-lipped when I'm at the shop. The reason being is that the workers there don't know conjure work but think they know all about magic. Well, some of the stuff they recommend I don't agree with and some of the stuff I have no idea why they would even say stuff like that. For example, I know among Wiccans there is this belief that pyrite is good for protection while travelling and to protect the car from break-ins. They recommended it to a customer today to protect her car. I don't understand it at all. Pyrite has only been about money and prosperity for me, save for "glamour" when you want to give the appearance of something being better than it actually is, i.e. "fool's gold". Another example, smudging. That seems to be the only way they know how to cleanse. Well, not everyone can smudge in their homes or smudge themselves. Another example, they think a major "spell" is to light like one of the 6 inch altar candles and perhaps some incense. So that's the high-light of their magic. It's real strange. And they do classes every now and them where they teach like working with candles, "poppets"(dollies), etc. It makes me just want to scream and hold my own class there so people have a taste of what a real worker can do. Because I know for a fact that when they realize that "we" exist and that we do a whole lot more stuff then they do then they usually are either extremely interested and want to learn it or they demonize us for daring not to abide by the law of three.

Don't get me wrong, I love the occult shop. Been going there for over 20 years, love the people. But I still can't be myself there and that's a damn shame.


Addendum: I forgot to mention that while I was there this old couple came in. The asked if they were at the wrong place and one of the workers asked them what they were looking for. Turns out they were wanting to purchase dictionaries. Well, they were told this was a new-age/metaphysical shop and the couple laughed and said they were old and didn't need "any of that stuff". LOL

I'm Addicted To Hardcore Pawn





I can't get enough of this show. It's so freaking hilarious. I don't even know if it's all real or scripted or both but it's one of the funniest reality shows on t.v.

Using My Blog Entries For Books

Since I've had this blog up I've been asked by three people if they can use my blog entries for a book they are writing. The answer will always be no. I don't agree with using another person's free writings for people to read for a book that a person is making money off of. Also, in the past I've been burned by people who have stolen my writings.

For those who don't know. Back in the late 90s I wrote a piece on a local legend of a haunted hotel. I submitted it to a website who published it but for some reason they removed my name and put "anonymous" instead. The next thing I know I see my piece on multiple websites. So I contact the original website and politely asked them to put my name on the piece I wrote. I go not response. So I sent some nasty emails threatening law suits. Still no response. Then 2 (TWO) books were published using my writing, word for word. Then my story got national attention when some famous sports teams stayed at the hotel and were scared sh*tless due to hearing of the ghost stories. So I am pissed. This was my own words, stories I was told by a security guard who guarded the abandoned hotel and who let us in to look around. Before me there was absolutely nothing about the story online. Now this was stolen from me.and I am very protective of my writings from now on.

Also, the first person to contact me wanted to write a book on hoodoo but admitted she knew nothing about it. Well, if you don't know anything about a subject you definitely shouldn't be writing a book on it, period. There's too many crappy books out there as it is, written by people who don't know a damn thing about real conjure work.

Hoodoo Tip

You can get a lot of the stuff you will use in conjure work from fast food restaurants and even your office break room. You can get things like red pepper, salt, sugar, lemon juice (packets), honey (packets), black pepper, etc. I'm not saying to go empty them out every chance you get but like when you order a pizza ask for red pepper. They usually give you like a fist-full of packets. I haven't had to purchase red pepper in years. Take a few packets here and there and build you up a stash to use in your work. Just a tip.

Honey Traps

Okay, I slipped up and let the cat out of the bag on this on Momma Starr's show on love drawing. I previously didn't want to blog on it because I knew other people were going to steal it and claim they've always done it. What I'm talking about is honey traps.

Now, I don't use honey in jar work. Lots of people are obsessed with honey jars. I don't even mess with them. I use syrup. And you don't have to fill the jar full of syrup either. You just need enough to cover the work. Because you need room to breathe in the jar and fill the jar with your prayers and petitions.

So what I do use honey for is for honey traps. Momma Starr already gave the work about smearing honey on the faces of two photos and putting them face to face to sweeten a couple. However, another thing you can do is the honey trap.

To make the honey trap you need a plate, honey, a taper candle, a photo or personal effect from the person, and whatever herbs, roots, or other items you are going to use. Honey traps are like the magical version of fly paper. So you are going to smear honey on the plate. Call the name of that person and slap that photo down in that honey. Set your taper over that picture and burn it and sprinkle whatever herbs or roots you are using around that candle. It's real simple and you can even use it to draw anything you want, such as money, luck, or whatever. A real simple money one is to smear a plate with honey, use a green taper and sprinkle some rice around it. You can slap a dollar bill or coins on the plate as well.

So there you go, honey traps!

Tales From The Casino

I went to the casino last night. I ended up breaking even. I don't know what's up but the last few times I've gone I haven't been winning much. Well anyway, I couldn't play my favorite game, King of Africa, because this guy played it all night long. He mentioned he had been playing it for 8 hours! And he was winning left and right. He said he had won $3,000 so far and was constantly winning $300 or $400 bucks like every 15 minutes or so. So I decided to play Mystical Unicorn which was about 2 machines down from him. Another woman who I've seen on several occasions sat on the Pirates Treasure machine in between us. So me and this woman were like flabbergasted that this man was winning so often. The woman then said that she had to work her machine so much just for a tiny win and that it was like she was back in the time of slavery. So I laughed and joined in and said he must be working some strong voodoo over there. The woman laughed and said, he needed to sprinkle some of the shit down here. Well, he got up to go the bathroom and I was like, "shh..quick he got a bag down there somewhere. We gotta steal some of his roots". The woman was drinking and spewed her drink on the monitor and laughed so loud and was jerking so much she about fell out of her chair. It was one of those laughs where you can't stop. Like you will be quiet for a few seconds and start laughing again. And when the man came back she started laughing even harder and hid her face in her arms. It was pretty funny.

Here is a video someone shot at the same casino I go to. This is the machine I like to play.

Love Is In The Air!

Valentine's is just around the corner so I thought I would give a few tips for love work. The first tip I would give is to use fresh rose petals. Too many people are dependant upon using dried herbs. Dried herbs are okay, it's just that sometimes fresh herbs can be a bit more powerful because they are still alive. Fresh rose petals also just scream love and romance and provide that extra psychological boost to the work. Now, you can even draw your lover a hot bath and put some rose petals in the water and state your petition. You can even fix you some candles and set them by the tub and your woman will just think you are being romantic and won't even know you are actually working on her.

The second tip I would give is to pay attention to your dreams. Now the cat will be out of the bag on this one. When I take on a client for love work I wait for them to tell me of a dream they had about the person. Depending on the dream this is usually a very good sign because we are connecting on a different level before it manifest in the physical world. So to dream of the loved one is usually a really good sign or omen that the work is manifesting.

The the third tip I would give is with regard to drawing a new love. The number one mistake people make is to ask for perfection. There is no such thing as perfection, hence, if you ask for it you will be disappointed. I recommend people make a list of the qualities they would like a new love to possess. Keep in mind that the more specific your stipulations are the longer it will take for it to manifest, if it manifests at all. So if your list is 5 pages in length and your work is not manifesting then it's time to go through your list and reassess what you really want in a new love.

The fourth tip I would give is that when you are doing any type of love-work it has an unattended consequence of attracting multiple people and even if you are only working on one specific person. For example, I have clients routinely tell me that they've noticed that all of sudden all these people are paying them attention, flirting with them, asking them out, etc. That's the side-effect of love work. Now, sometimes a person may meet someone new and decide to no longer pursue the intended person and focus on this new person. That's perfectly fine!

The fifth tip I would give is to get over the concept of "soul mates". This will sort of coincide with the tip on perfection. I do believe in love at first sight. I do believe that some couples are soul mates and bond physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I think that is awesome and wonderful. However, we shouldn't judge our relationships based on other people's relationships. After all, none of us know what goes on behind closed doors. The truth is that even soul mates fight and fuss just like every couple. If you can't bond spiritually with a lover, yet are fine physically and mentally, and even emotionally, then don't judge your relationship as being not good. Focus on the positive and bloom and grow where you are planted.

The sixth tip I would give is for reconciliation work. Don't hold grudges. When you want to reconcile with someone you will often have to be the better person. Don't punish the person for leaving you or for past sins. Forgive them and start a new. If you hold on to grudges or can't forgive a person for past offenses then you really do not deserve to be in a relationship with them. If you are one of these people who can't let go of the past, try to draw someone new instead.

The seventh and last tip I will give is the most important tip of all. Give it up. Once you do the work you must give it up to God, the Universe, whatever. If you obsess over it then it will not manifest. When love strikes it's going to be out of the blue. It's going to happen when you aren't even thinking about it. I know this is hard where love is concerned because the very notion of being in love with someone means that you are constantly thinking about them. But it's a must for love work. Do the work, know that it will manifest, and let it go.

Wishing Everyone A Wonderful Valentine's Day!

After The Tribulation

This blog post is for my Christian readers. If you are not a Christian then you may not like this blog entry, so just giving a heads up. The following documentary is on the false teaching of the pre-trib rapture. I've blogged on this before. The pre-trip rapture is not a damnable doctrine, meaning you aren't damned if you believe in it. However, there is nothing in the bible to support such belief. Instead, the pre-trib rapture serves to pacify Christians, stopping them from standing up to evil, as well as creating "death-loving" Christians who can't wait for the world to be destroyed in a similar manner to children overly excited in anticipation of Christmas. So to just recap a couple of things. There is no pre-trib rapture. The tribulation is not God's punishment upon the world. It's God separating the wheat from the chaff. True Christians will be persecuted. The fakes will not be. Now, I don't want to dwell on this so I will leave it at that. The title of the documentary is, "After the Tribulation: The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Fraud Exposed".

You Don't Know Oklahoma

I'm an Oklahoman, born and raised. The thing I most have to deal with regard to outsiders is their assumptions that they know what Oklahoma is like. They don't. Nobody does. Even some people in Oklahoma who don't get out may not know just how weird and fantastic Oklahoma is. For example, I still get questions like, "Do you wear boots to church?", and "Do you even have trees in Oklahoma?". So I thought I would post on some stuff lots of people don't know about Oklahoma.

1.) Oklahoma is the state with the most man-made lakes. Our largest lake, and my personal favorite, is Lake Eufaula (you-fall-uh). One time this girl from New England didn't know how to pronounce it and was like, "you-fa-lay-la". I've also heard people pronounce it, "you-fuh-oo-la". But no, it's "you-fall-uh".



2.) We have a desert. We call it "Little Sahara".



We also have wild cactus. One time a met a woman from California who flipped her wig after noticing we have wild cactus. People also grow cactus in their gardens or flower beds. Over time they can grow huge!



Yucca is also very popular here and grows all over the place. I used to live in apartments that had the hugest yucca plants I've ever scene. It was so huge they had to be secured with ties to keep it up. The then manager said that these yuccas were over about 60 years old. Crazy.

3.) We have waterfalls. My favorite it Turner Falls.



4.) We have mountains. They aren't as tall as the Rockies but they are still classified as mountains.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbuckle_Mountains

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouachita_Mountains

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wichita_Mountains

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quartz_Mountain

5.) We have a plateau called Black Mesa. It's the highest point in Oklahoma.



6.) We have a canyon called Red Rock Canyon.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Rock_Canyon_State_Park_(Oklahoma)

One time, as a teen, we all went climbing at Red Rock Canyon and I fell and got lodged in a crevice between two large rocks. I though I was going to die. It took like three other guys to get me out. But overall the experience was fun.

7.) We have lots of swamps and wetlands. Here's a quick trivia question. What's the difference between a swamp and a wetland? The answer is trees. A wetlands is devoid of trees while a swamp has trees. Here in Oklahoma we have both. And this may come as a shock to some. We also have native gators here in Oklahoma. Yes, you read right, actual gators and no, not the ones in a zoo and no, not any escaped pets. These are real life breeding populations of gators. Now, they don't get full size in Oklahoma because of the cold winters but we do have breeding populations. Oklahoma gators live in the far corner of Southeastern Oklahoma. However, ever so often they will migrate north or westward and be caught in a place where people don't expect to see a gator, such as in Tulsa, OK.

8.) Oklahoma is a Southern state. Many people don't know this. Unfortunately, we share in the horrors that was slavery. Slavery was alive and well in Oklahoma. However, the good thing is that many run away slaves came to Oklahoma to hide out with the Indians. However, the bad news is that even the Indians kept black slaves. The Indians treated their slaves better than white people did. The Indians did not split up families and lived and worked side-by-side with their slaves, but it was still slavery. Of course, the Indians were forced to move to Oklahoma by the whites.

http://digital.library.okstate.edu/encyclopedia/entries/S/SL003.html

9.) The reason why Oklahoma is so heavily associated with Native Americans is due to the "Trail of Tears", the Indian Removal Act of 1830 that forced tribes to abandon their homelands and move to Oklahoma. Countless died on the journey. It was a very sad time. The flower called "Cherokee Rose" that blooms in Oklahoma today is believed to have sprung from the tears of Indian mothers. Oklahoma means, "Land of the Red People". We have lots of cities, towns, and places with Indian names.

10.) Parking meters and shopping carts were invented in Oklahoma. The original shopping cart looked more like a baby buggy, than the carts we are familiar with today. It was simply the size of a hand-held basket, like on a stroller with a handle. Perhaps this is the reason why they are called "buggies" in the South? The Yield Sign was not invented in Oklahoma; However, it was first implemented in Tulsa, OK, and then from there other cities began to use them.

Free Emergeny Work

I'm now accepting free emergency work. Sorry, I've just been swamped with requests of late. Times have been tough for a lot of people and I was doing 3 full works and then got 2 more and then those people were sending me other people, and I just had to stop it for while.

Just a reminder, this is for emergency situations only. Emergencies are defined by the situation, not whether or not someone can afford to hire a worker.

Southeastern Oklahoma Accent

This is Senator Boggs. He was born and raised in Southeastern Oklahoma so his accent is pretty much typical of that area. However, the closer you get to the border of Arkansas, the harder it is to tell the accents apart. And near Louisiana, things really get weird. I'm going to have to go down there one day to film some of our gators. But that will be a story for another day.
