Intuitive Archaeology


Learn more in my upcoming Psychometry Class April 4 at the Green Man Store!

Just $20! ($23 for credit/debit). Call 818-985-2010 to register!

Learn to develop Psychometry, the ability to read the history of objects or to communicate with spirits attached to them by touch. For example, a hat could tell you about the people who wore it and their experiences and also of the places it has been. The emotions and personalities of people who possessed the object often come through very strongly as well. Psychometry can also be used to tap into and communicate with spirit guides and loved ones who have passed.

During this class we will also explore various methods to develop students individual mediumistic abilities. By the end of the two hour session you’ll be ready to continue practicing on your own!

If you have unusual objects that seem to have spirits attached to them, or if there is a loved one you would like to communicate with and you have an object that belonged to them, please bring them with you!

Previous experience with spirits and/or psychic ability is helpful but not necessary.

Thursday, April 2 - 7:30-9:30 pm Southern Conjure Series: Hoodoo Saints Magic
Just $20! ($23 if by card) Call 818-985-2010 to register.

Learn how to work roots, make mojos, read bones, read eggs and do egg cleansings and much, much more this new series exploring the folk magic of the Southern U.S., presented by Hoodoo/Conjure practitioner Elizabeth Bissette. A psychic reader, medium, and energy worker from Nashville, Elizabeth grew up in the Hoodoo-infused South and inherited natural psychic ability from her Cherokee Great-Grandmother.

An authentic Southern Conjure woman, Elizabeth incorporates direct spirit communication in her readings and magical workings. With an academic background focused on Judaism and the Early Church, she has a unique layer of insight into the many Judeo-Christian influences in Hoodoo. Her field studies in the Santeria/Lucemi tradition add additional insight into this uniquely American system of magic.

This class will provide an overview of the role of saints candles, baths, oils and altars in the system. Message me for materials info.

Curious Candles

I've been giving  people instructions for candle magic to do on their own in addition to their bath and mojo.

Candle Magic Kits are available in store or by mail. The kit is $15 + $5 shipping, (for mail orders Kit only, as candles may melt when shipped.) In-store, you may purchase our candles, (hand-made by one of the witches on staff), for $22.

About the Contents Herein:


Hawthorn
Sacred to Fairies. The berries keep away evil. The leaves open your heart to love, (and to Fairies) and can heal your heart when it hurts. It is advisable to place your Black Thorn, (should you have one), in a bag of Hawthorn.

Blackthorn
Instructions available at time of order only, for safety purposes.



Mandrake
Instructions available at time of order only, for safety purposes.



Heather
Brings love, beauty, peace, luck, rain and friendly Fairies.


Lavender
Love, youth, beauty, wishes and visions of Fairies.


Calendula
Leave these flowers out so that your Fairy friends can wear them as hats when they come visit.

Positive energy, calming peace, listening, the ability to hear Fairies, seeing the future, ancestors, (including and perhaps especially Fairy ancestors), understanding the language of the birds, (if you brush them across your feet and you are very small), also, place them near you when making music, art or any other creative pursuit. An infusion of these dipped in pads placed over the eyes guarantees visions of Fairies.

Magic Wishing Balls
(Job's Tears)

Hold the 7 balls, (7 per wish) in your hand, make a wish and put the balls in your pocket. (You must think VERY hard about your wish when you hold them). Keep them in your pocket for 7 days, then, go to running water, (your sink will do), hold them in your hand, say the 23rd Psalm and throw the balls over your left shoulder in the water to get your wish.

Pixie Dust

Add to Fairy, (or any other incense), and when it sparks, Fairies are surely present. Add sugar for EXTRA magic sparks and Fairy drawing.




Fairy Drawing Incense
Self-explanatory.

Disclaimer:

Not all Fairies are nice and friendly. Many are EXTREMELY mischevious and a few are downright nasty, (like the mean one in 'Sleeping Beauty'). SO use this kit with caution.

ALSO, remember, wishes often backfire. Be VERY specific when wishing. (See 'The Fisherman and His Wife' or 'The Man Who Turned His Wife's Nose Into a Sausage' for examples.)

P.S. Fairy Godmother's are separate issues and require entirely different bags of magic as a general rule. This kit MIGHT bring yours but I offer no guarantees.

What is a Mojo?


Perhaps the best known item in Hoodoo or Southern folk magic, is a mojo. It's a magic charm carried to bring luck, money, love, protection... just about anything you'd like! The origin of the practice is definitely African but the origin of the term is disputed. Possible sources include the Gulluh word 'moco', ('witchcraft'), the Fluca 'moc'o', ('medicine man') or West African 'mojuba', ('I salute you'). Put together by a root doctor or conjurer, the charm is also known as a 'mojo hand', 'conjure bag' or 'gris-gris' bag.

What makes a mojo so powerful that it has become the stuff of legend? What differentiates it from other talismans? A mojo is 'alive' with spirit. The spirit of the contents, of the maker and of the carrier all combine in it and the bag is representative of an ongoing, reciprocal relationship between the three. It is animated when created, (for example, when including a John the Conqueror root the spirit of John, a historically based figure in African American folklore, is 'awakened' by holding the root and calling 'High John, John the Conqueror', three times). After it's s made, it 's periodically re-animated by the possessor with oils or other substances.

What a mojo consists of depends on the desired result but there are some common denominators. Traditionally it contains an odd number of items, (at least three, usually one animal, one mineral, one herbal). Roots, herbs, stones, flowers, bones, feathers, talismans and prayers are all common ingredients. Petitions and prayers are spoken over it and often added to it, (pieces of paper with words, names, psalms etc). The recipient adds his or her personal items to it as well.

The mojo is then 'fixed' by passing it through incense smoke, over flame or sprinkled with salt water. Next, the intent of the charm is petitioned for by reciting psalms, scripture and by breathing onto it. It is then 'dressed', usually with conjure oil but sometimes with whiskey or other alcohol or even perfume. This 'feeds' the roots and is the final step in bringing the mojo to life. This action, along with petitions and prayers, is repeated periodically throughout the time the owner possesses the it.

Mojos are most often worn on the person or in a purse, though house mojos are sometimes made, however. In either case, it is traditionally kept out of sight. This is because it is believed that if someone sees or definitely if someone touches your mojo it loses all or some of it's power.

Examples of basic mojo ingredients:

Marie Laveau's Money Charm: Pyrite, Rabbits Foot, Magnet

Love: Rose, Lavender, Magnets, 2 Sea Shells, Name Paper

Luck: Southern John Root, Five Finger Grass, Rabbit's Foot


Protection: John the Conqueror Root, Hyssop, Hematite, Feathers, Psalm Paper
