Product Review - Pheromone Oil Perfume - Do As I Say

Brand: Pheromone Oil Perfume
Type: Perfume/Cologne
Name: Do As I Say
Package: 1/3 fl. oz. Roll On Bottle
Color: Orange
Label: A woman putting the "whammy" on a man with her eyes, as in light beams of influence coming out of her eyes and meeting his eyes. The brand name appears in Spanish at the top and "Do As I Say" is written at the bottom.

The label does not reflect the label shown at site. It's much more subdued and color faded. It's so faded that the rays of light coming from the woman's eyes and meeting the man's eyes are not visible. The label appears to be the same type of gold label used for Anna Riva oils. As such, I fear it will quickly rub off. There is a bit of unknown herbal and/or root material in the bottle. I am unable to identify it. This is an alleged pheromone oil, meaning there is supposed to be human pheromones in the oil. Pheromones are believed to help play a role in attracting a mate and to help us become more sociable in groups. Pheromones are also supposed to communicate just about everything from our sexual preference, our state of health, and even to how strong our DNA is. Believe it or not, pheromones are odorless. In one study a group of men were made to smell tears collected from women. The men were later tested and it was found that they had a surge of testosterone released after smelling the tears. When people smell pheromones they do not register any smell in their brains but they do pick up on them unconsciously and react to it whether they realize it or not. Have you ever met someone, male or female, and just automatically knew you liked them? It might be that they have strong pheromones. So there is supposed to be pheromones in the bottle but I must admit that I am skeptical of such. The fragrance is a pleasant mix of a subtle sugary, cotton candy type smell with a hint of musk and sweet orange. I do like the scent. The scent is unisex so either gender can wear it.  It does seem to work. I wore it to ask a favor of someone and they agreed. It also seems to attract women. I've worn it out twice now and several woman have approached me and smelled me.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 9. I would purchase it again and I'm interested in purchase additional types of this product.

Product Review - 7 Sisters Of New Orleans Aerosol Spray - Fast Luck/Money Drawing

Brand: 7 Sisters of New Orleans 
Type: Aerosol Spray
Name: Fast Luck/Money Drawing
Package: 6.5 oz Can
Color: N/A
Label: There is a hand scratching a ticket and a magnet attracting coins. Below this are bags of money and stacks of coins. Brand and name are at the top in English and in Spanish below. Directions are located on the reverse. The image of the 7 Sisters of New Orleans is included.

First and foremost, for those who have never purchased these spray cans or even seen them, they are small. They are not the size of normal aerosol cans. Here's a picture showing the size of the spray can compared to a can of Glade Air Freshener:

So these 7 Sisters of New Orleans aerosol cans are not even as big as Glade Air Freshener and these Glade Air Freshener cans are slim and small. So keep that in mind. This product is a dual condition product, for both luck and money. The fragrance is a metallic chemical smell with just a hint of fruit. I do not like the fragrance. Sorry, but I would expect this product to have smelled far better than it did.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this product a 5.  I would probably not purchase this product again.

University Of East London - Electronic Cigarettes: What We Know So Far

This is a very informative presentation on ecigs. This is a good presentation for those smokers who are thinking about transitioning and for anyone else who is simply interested in ecigs. My one year anniversary of being smoke-free is fast approaching. I could not have done it without ecigs. I've tried nearly everything to quit and nothing worked for me. Ecigs will save lives.

Unfortunately I was told some bad news. About a month after I transitioned I got an old high school friend to transition as well. Everything went great. She loved it. Then I didn't talk to her for about 7 or 8 months. We finally talked again and it turns out she went back to smoking. This really concerns me because she just had her first child. She was talking about exposing the child to the unknown dangers of vaping and I was flabbergasted. There are no unknown dangers. All this talk about the dangers of vaping is fear propaganda or "fear porn." If she would have stayed with it she would have been fast approaching her one year anniversary of being smoke free as well. I think the major problem with her is that she wouldn't invest any money on the right model of ecig. She was using a rinky dink ecig and I tried several time to get her to invest in a better model but she wouldn't listen. I guess she doesn't realize she's spending far more money on cigarettes. I'm quite bummed. I hope she doesn't wait to quit smoking when she develops her first smoking-related illness or heart problem. Not everyone who waits until then to quit gets a second chance at life.

I recently purchased another ecig model. It's an iTaste MVP2. I already have the first model and loved it so much that I bought the second model. The batteries on both last me about three days of heavy vaping or five days of light vaping, if I vape like I used to smoke.

I bought my iTaste MVP2 at the Vapor Hut, my local vape shop for $70. It comes with a free 20ml bottle of ejuice.

Harry's Occult Shop Has Closed

Harry's Occult Shop was Philadelphia's oldest hoodoo shop. It first opened in 1917 as a drugstore and then made the transition into hoodoo drugstore and then later into an "occult shop". They made and sold their own spiritual products. I guess I'm a little late but it appears as if the store has now closed. A new shop has opened up, not in the same building, called Mystical Emporium. Harry's Occult Shop website redirects to Mystical Emporium. I have removed the web link from my recommended links below as I do not recommend this new shop. This is a sad, sad time. Harry's Occult Shop will be missed. It's especially sad that it closed just three years shy of being open for 100 years.

To see images of Harry's Occult Shop, click HERE.

Addendum: I read online that the landlord decided to sell the building which caused the store to close. Mystical Emporium is owned by new people but they did hire some of the staff from Harry's Occult Shop. This said, Mystical Emporium appears to be far more New Age in nature and not the classic old, down-to-earth hoodoo that made Harry's Occult Shop famous.

Another Arrest Made In "Unsolved Mysteries" Oklahoma Triple Murder Case

In 1992, Wendy Camp, Lisa Kregear and 6 year-old Cynthia Britto disappeared after visiting Wendy's son.  Wendy had a son named Jonathan with a man named Chad Noe. Chad's mother, Beverly Noe, sneakily obtained full custody of Jonathan while Wendy was in the hospital for treatment of MS. However, Wendy was awarded visitation rights. Beverly Noe and Chad Noe did everything they could to prevent Wendy from seeing her son. They even made false accusations that Wendy's husband was molesting her son during visits and even though Wendy and Leon were never at any time left alone with Jonathan during visits. Finally, on May 29, 1992, Chad Noe called Wendy Camp and asked her if she wanted to see Jonathan. Since Wendy was too ill to drive, Beverly Noe would come pick her up. Beverly's mother, Ida Prewitt, would be riding with Beverly. Wendy agree.

Wendy was ecstatic and believed that things were finally getting better between the families. She eventually hoped to regain custody of her son. However, Wendy's then current husband, Leon Camp, was suspicious and advised her that she should not travel alone with them. Leon didn't want to attend for fear of again being falsely accused of molesting Jonathon.  Wendy decided to ask her sister-in-law, Lisa Kregear, Leon's sister, to come with her. Lisa agreed. Wendy also decided to take her 6 year-old daughter Cynthia with her. The trio were picked up by Beverly and Ida. They never arrived home. Beverly Noe and Ida Pruitt both claimed that on the drive back that Wendy Camp became belligerent and that they dropped the trio off at a local Walmart. Unsolved Mysteries did a segment on their disappearance where Beverly Noe and the family again emphatically denied having any involvement in their disappearance.

In April of last year (2013), the remains of Wendy Camp, Lisa Kregear and 6 year-old Cynthia Britto were found on property owned by Beverly Noe's brother, Grover Prewitt. Grover Prewitt was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact in first degree murder. It is believed that it was Grover who buried the bodies. Now police have made a second arrest, that of Beverly Noe and have charged her with 3 counts of first degree murder.

Ida Prewitt passed away from cancer in 2011, so she can not be brought to earthly justice. Grover Prewitt and Beverly Noe have been arrested and will be tried and most likely convicted for their crimes. This still leaves one more arrest that will probably soon take place. However, rumor is that Chad Noe claims to have no knowledge of the murders and allegedly took a polygraph and passed. This said, two people had previously claimed that Chad Noe had bragged about the murders.

I've had a strong fascination with this case since it was local. It was always one of those local mysteries as to what happened to these women and child. I hope their murderers receive the maximum sentence for their horrendous crime, up to and including the death penalty.

(Edit: I just learned that Grover Prewitt claims that his sister (Beverly Noe) and his mother (Ida Prewitt) killed Wendy, Lisa and Cynthia. His apparent role was to dispose of the bodies.)

Product Review - 7 Sisters Of New Orleans Aerosol Spray - Uncrossing

Brand: 7 Sisters of New Orleans 
Type: Aerosol Spray
Name: Uncrossing
Package: 6.5 oz Can
Color: N/A
Label: A man's silhouette is crossed by the words "uncrossing" in an "x" pattern. The name and brand is listed at the top. Directions are listed on the reverse. The 7 Sisters of New Orleans image does not appear on the label, though it appears on the label of the product shown at site.

First and foremost, for those who have never purchased these spray cans or even seen them, they are small. They are not the size of normal aerosol cans. Here's a picture showing the size of the spray can  compared to a can of Glade Air Freshener:

So these 7 Sisters of New Orleans aerosol cans are not even as big as Glade Air Freshener and these Glade Air Freshener cans are slim and small. So keep that in mind. The fragrance is not pleasant. It smells like a mixture of metal, musk and patchouli. Even though I do not like the fragrance I can see how this pungent fragrance can be associated with uncrossing. This is something you don't want to be spraying every single day. 

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this product a 6.  I would probably not purchase this product again.

Guess Who's Coming To Town?

The Westboro Baptist Church will be coming to my town on April 5 to boycott a liquor store that put up a sign celebrating the death of Fred Phelps. This will be the second time they've come to my city in a few short years. The first time they came here they were protesting the High School by my house because it allegedly had the highest rate of teen pregnancy and was "fag enabling" (their words).  So my brother and his friends and I went down there and took part in the anti-Westboro Baptist church protest. My brother even appeared on t.v. I do plan on once again protesting their presence in my community.

Product Review - 7 Sisters Of New Orleans Bath/Floor Wash - Fast Luck/Money Drawing

Brand: 7 Sisters of New Orleans
Type: Bath/Floor Wash
Name: Fast Luck/Money Drawing
Package: 8 oz Plastic Bottle
Color: Green
Label: A man holding cash is sitting on a speeding rocket. There is a money bag behind him and a money sign at the front of the rocket. The 7 Sisters of New Orleans image with flowers is at the bottom with the name of the product at the top. Instructions are located on the side of the bottle.

This is a combination bath/floor wash that is also a combination of conditions, fast luck and money drawing. It is a vivid bright green in color. It has a pleasant, pine-like fragrance which suits it's purpose for money drawing. For those who have never purchased these products before, one bottle is good for two baths (using half a bottle for each bath). However, one pretty much never takes only two baths when doing spiritual work. A minimum of three baths on consecutive days would be needed, going on up to 7 or more. Therefore, if one was going to purchase this I would recommend purchasing more than one bottle. If you are only using it for a floor wash then one bottle may be enough to clean the home. If one wanted to increase the power of the product, I would recommend adding drops of fast luck oil and money drawing oil, or drops of essential oils from plants with the same properties.

One a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this product a 9.  I would purchase it again.

Product Review - Indio Products - Chinese Wash

Brand: Indio
Type: Floor Wash
Name: Chinese Wash
Package: 8 oz Plastic Bottle
Color: White (Also comes in green and red.)
Label: Parts of the label are hard to distinguish. A Chinese man is pouring water from a jug on to something on the ground. This causes what looks like spirits to flee. At the top is written, "Indio's Fragrant Disinfectant." At the bottom is written, "Remove That Unclean Or Evil Condition", followed by the name of the product in English and Spanish. Instructions are located on the side.

This product smells wonderful! It's like a very fresh, Spring-like, clean linen fragrance. I love it. I would recommend only buying the white variety. The red and green ones just look too messy. To make it stronger I would advise putting a few drops of lemongrass oil into it. I really like this and would definitely purchase it again.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 9.

Blast From The Past.....

Seven Seas was a miniature Sea World that was adjacent to Six Flags in Arlington, TX. In closed in 1976 due to lack of profit. Here's a video my family took while vacationing there.

My Funny Mistake On The 7 Sisters Of New Orleans Image

Above is the picture of the 7 Sisters of New Orleans that is included on many of this line of spiritual products. I will share a funny story with you. For the longest time I thought this was either a bee or wasp nest. I'm not joking. I thought this for a very long time, so long that I can't even figure how long it was that I thought this. Then after studying it I thought that maybe it was a John the Conqueror root. Then about 2 weeks ago while looking at it the image finally jumped out at me. It was the heads and hair of 7 women, the 7 Sisters of New Orleans. LOL

Product Review - 7 Sisters Of New Orleans Powder Incense - Money Drawing

Brand: 7 Sisters Of New Orleans
Type: Powder Incense
Name: Money Drawing
Package: Cardboard Tube
Color: Green
Label: A woman grabbing money and coins that are showering down upon her from a magnet. Surrounding her is the number 7, a treasure chest, pair of dice, a bag of money, a stack of money, a four-leaf clover and poker chips. The image of the 7 Sisters of New Orleans, flowers and the name of the incense is also included.

This incense as a vivid green color and is strongly scented with a pleasant, fruity smell. It burns good. There is enough room in the tube to add your own herbs, roots, oils or other items.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 9. I would definitely purchase this again.

Product Review - 7 Sisters Of New Orleans Powder Incense - Bend Over

Brand: 7 Sisters Of New Orleans
Type: Powder Incense
Name: Bend Over
Package: Cardboard Tube
Color: Orange
Label: A woman and a man bending over, image of 7 sisters and flowers and name of incense

This incense has no noticeable smell. I resorted to adding 7 Sisters of New Orleans Bend Over oil to the incense. The incense is a nice shade of orange. It burns well. There is enough room to mix in herbs and roots to the tube of incense. I really enjoy the 7 Sisters of New Orleans Powder Incense.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give this a 8. I would definitely purchase this again.

Book Review: Seven Sisters' Spellbook by Maude

The book is, Seven Sister's Spellbook by Maude.

Don't waste your money on this crap. This book was not written by any member of the Seven Sisters of New Orleans. Instead, it was written as an advertisement for Seven Sisters of New Orleans spiritual products. All of the spells included require the reader to purchase 7 Sisters of New Orleans products. Believe it or not, in the introduction it states that if you "do bad" that it will come back on you x10! I kid you not! Additionally, many of the spells do not make sense and require items one would not normally use. For example, under "Purification Spell" it recommends using Do As I Say oil. Elsewhere it recommends using Dove's Blood ink in a spell involving an enemy. At the back of the book is listed all of the Seven Sisters of New Orleans oils and their uses. For some reason the title is "Psychic Oils." This is followed with "Candle Blessing oils", a relatively new Indio/Wisdom product that is different from the regular Seven Sisters of New Orleans oils, bath crystals, floor washes, incense powders, and assorted Seven Sisters of New Orleans products.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10  the highest, I give this a 1. I think that instead of writing this fake book that Indio/Wisdom should have just released a book that was similar to Anna Riva's, "Golden Secrets of Mystic Oils", that is, an alphabetical listing of the Seven Sisters of New Orleans spiritual products and what they are used for. That would have been a better book by far.

Problems With Natural Oil-Based Spiritual Oils And 7 Day Candles

Okay, I get this complaint a lot and I know it's true because I've experienced it myself. All these natural based spiritual oils, oils that have as their base almond oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, etc., these oils are horrible to use when burning 7 day candles. Half the time you use them the flame automatically goes out once you light the candle. Then, the times where the flame doesn't automatically go out it shrinks so low that it might as well be extinguished. With time it will either go out or gradually burn right. However, when using spiritual oils that are not natural oil based this problem doesn't happen. For example, if you buy the spiritual oils that  are mineral-oil based, even the cheap kind, then you won't have this problem. So everyone who is writing me complaining about how their 7 day candles go out right after they are lit, it's the oil you are using. Switch to a different non-natural oil for 7 day candles and you will be fine. If you want to use the natural based oils for non-7 day candles then they are usually fine. Other than that, the only thing I can recommend is only using a very small portion of natural based oils on your 7 day candles and see if that helps.

Concerning Free Emergency Work

I just wanted to let people know that I have never promised to take on every single person who comes to me asking for free emergency work.  I simply can not take on every single person who comes to me. Yes, I listen to Spirit and let Spirit guide me. However, my time and attention goes to my paying clients. Any free work I do takes place in between clients. I will never, repeat never, drop a paying client in order to help someone for free. The sad thing is people will ask me to do jut this. It's not fair to the client.

If someone comes to me and asks for free work the very first thing is to determine if it's a real emergency. If it's not an emergency then no free work will be given. Love work is not an emergency. Getting revenge is not an emergency. You getting a promotion at your job is not an emergency and it also lets me know that you can afford to hire me for work as you have a job!

If the situation is a real emergency and if the person approaches me in the correct manner, upfront and honest, then I probably can take it on as free work if I'm not too busy with paying clients. However, if I can't take the case on do not argue with me. Do not get rude with me. It will not make me change my mind. If I turn such a case down it's only because it's either not a true emergency or I'm too busy with paying clients. There is no anger or hatred on my part against the person asking. So I would prefer that people not respond hateful and angry with me.

Finally, please remember that free emergency work is not designed to make your life perfect. I really do not want to read anymore emails from people asking for 10-20 "free emergency works", as if they are operating under the assumption that it's my responsibility to make people's lives perfect and solve all of their problems. When people send me emails with dozens of requests for this and that, every single problem in their life, I only pick out one or two top priority needs and work on those alone, if I choose to take on the case. Please understand why.

If I can't take on a case for free emergency work then I always include the person's name and situation for the prayer list.

Finally Spring Is Here!

I thought this Winter would never end! Today is the first day of Spring! For once we are actually having good weather today with temps into the 70s. I hope it continues.

Wishing Everyone A Wonderful Spring!

Testimony From A Client

This is "A". She had a reading with me some time back and this is what she has to say about it.

----- Original Message -----
From: xxxx
Sent: 02/27/14 10:17 PM
Subject: Reading review/testimonial for you

Hi Doc!
Sorry this is coming so late to you.
We had a reading a couple weeks ago and I wanted to give you feedback for your other clients and potential clients.
I had a reading with Doc after maybe one or two emails of going back and forth about the process. He is extremely prompt with his responses and very professional. We scheduled a time to talk after arranging payment. I had a few questions that I knew I wanted answered and then just figured we would fill in the blanks with other stuff as it came up.
When he called me, I was really impressed by his warmth on the phone. I'm not a phone person at all and frankly the phone gets me a bit nervous but he really was calming just by his demeanor. I liked that a lot. And so we started with my questions. He gave me pretty definitive answers to which I was impressed by. He asked me a few clarifying questions as well which made me realize his intuitive ability as well.  In retrospect I do wish I spent more time and wrote down more because he seemed perplexed that my burning questions were answered pretty quickly. He did fill in some blanks with other info which I wrote down and will keep an eye on for predictions. We spent some time talking about the work I am going to have him do as well so I think that we might have done sort of a combo of a reading and consult. That's just kind of the direction we went in. I guess it's because I'm pretty process oriented and while I had him on the phone, I figured we would cover that information too. He clarified a lot.
He's really personable and is not judgemental at all. I really liked that because I was asking a lot of the typical questions I think that people ask and he approached me with kindness and my situation with respect. I'm pretty sure I repeated myself too which he's super patient about. At one point we had a good laugh about a mix up in my story too which made me know he's still lighthearted without being totally down to business. He's straightforward but not rude like some "straightforward" people can seem to be. Totally different things and I like that he knows the difference!!
He is confident in his abilities and really explained the process of the work getting started to me. I'm in the midst of gathering my money for it and I can't wait to start. He's a really cool genuine worker.
My one advice to potential clients is to definitely write your questions down and prepare a bit for the reading to get the most out of it. I think in my nervousness, I didn't realize they'd be answered so quickly. Haha.
Sorry for being so long winded!! I hope this helps. Talk to you soon.
God bless
