For Health & Vitality

Write the person’s name on a scrap of paper seven times, turn the paper one-quarter turn and write over the name the following words found in Psalms 39:12-13 “Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear unto my cry; hold not they peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were. Oh spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.  

Mark the person’s name on a yellow-candle and dress the candle with Cast off Evil Oil. Set the candle in a holder and place the petition underneath. Light the candle and pray the 39th Psalm several times as the candle burns.

Note: This procedure may be used to help another break an addiction. However, for that purpose, you may wish to prepare a Vigil Light and pray for the individual at the same time each day as the candle burns.

Uncrossing: How to Lift a Hex, Jinx, or Curse

Shortly before sunrise, prepare a spiritual bath which includes Hyssop. Set two candles on either side of your shower or tub and light them. Soak in the bath for at least 10 minutes as you contemplate that which you feel is separating you from God and keeping you from the gifts that he has to offer you. You may wish to read the 51st Psalm as you meditate.

When you are ready, begin pouring the water over your head as you say “Cleanse me with Hyssop and I will be clean, wash me and I will be whiter than snow.” When you are done, stand up and step backwards out of the tub and pass between the two lit candles, saying: “In Jesus name, Amen.”

Before allowing the water to run down the drain, save a cupful which you will dispose of at a crossroads by throwing it towards the East over your left shoulder and walking away without looking back.

Write Psalm chapter 7 verses 8-10 on a square of paper. Turn the paper one-quarter turn and write your name over the scripture 7 times. Dress the four corners and center of the paper with Uncrossing Oil and fold the paper away from you three times, then set it aside.

Butt a black candle and mark it with your name. Dress the candle with Uncrossing Oil stroking your finger over your name 7 times saying “With God’s blessings, may this evil be removed from me so that I may enjoy all the good that I am due and more. In Jesus name. Amen.”

Set the candle in a holder and place the petition underneath. Arrange three votive candles around the black candle so as to form a equilateral triangle. Put a drop of Uncrossing Oil on each votive and light them one at a time in the name of The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Light the black candle and pray the 27th Psalm 7 times. When the candle is spent, dispose of any wax remains off of your property.

For the Return of Lost or Stolen Goods

On a piece of paper write the item(s) that was stolen from you 9 times, turn the paper one-quarter turn and write “Return to Me” also nine times. Fold the paper towards you three times saying: "As I fold this paper towards me, so may my (item) return to me. In Jesus name, amen."  Set the petition aside. Next, take a blue-candle and mark it with the name/type of item and the words “Return to Me.”

Anoint the candle with any type of Attraction Oil and roll it towards yourself in a mixture of dragon’s blood and high john the conqueror powder calling the item back to you. Set the candle in a holder with the petition paper underneath. Light the candle and make your fervent prayer to God saying “As Joseph returned to the land of his birth, as Moses returned to his mother, with God’s blessings may {item} return to me. In Jesus name. Amen.”

Light the candle and let it go to work for you.

Hot-Foot Spell

Picture First of all, butt a black-candle, and mark it with the victim's name written backwards. Then stroke the candle away from you over his name several times saying "(N) as I stroke this candle away from me, so may you move away from me  and out of my life forever. In Jesus' name. Amen."

Then write out your petition by writing the victim's name backwards on a piece of paper 3,5,7, or 9 times. Dress the 4 corners and center of the paper with Hot Foot Oil. If you are in possession of any of his personal concerns (hair, nail clipping, etc..) place this in the center of the petition and fold it away from you three times saying something such as "As I fold this paper away from me, so may (N) move away from me and out of my life forever. In Jesus' name. Amen." and then place the paper under the candle.

Next, light the candle and pray: "With God's blessings, as Jesus cast the demon out of the possessed, may (N) be cast out of my life. As Jesus made the blind to see, let (N) see that this is not the place for him to be. As Jesus made the lame to walk, let (N) walk out of my life forever. In Jesus' name. Amen."

Let the candle burn down and when it has almost burned out take the petition from under the candle and burn it in the flame of the dying candle. When you are done, capture the ashes and any left-over wax, place it in a bottle and toss over your left shoulder into running water. Finally, walk away without looking back.

Mailbag Monday: Bad Teacher

Dear Carolina Dean, 

I am writing to ask for your help with my son. Let me explain. Gordon is enrolled in driving-school to learn how to drive. It is a very small class and students are paired up with one another as study-buddies, however, there is an odd number of students and Gordon is the odd-man-out. 

Gordon suffers from acute-anxiety for which he is seeing a doctor (who has prescribed Valerian-Root Tea). He tries really hard to pay attention in class but many of the other students are disruptive and the teacher seems to have a grudge against Gordon and resent him for asking questions. The teacher has even said that she believes Gordon to be a quitter and does not give him any support. My husband and I have spoken to the teacher on two occasions but things don't seem to have improved.

How can I use Hoodoo to help my son?



Hi Motivated and thanks for your question. 

In this instance, I would recommend a honey jar which includes the name of the teacher (written on paper, business card,  signature taken from a note, photograph, etc...) along with  five-finger-grass, calamus-root, licorice-root, comfrey, and wormwood. 

In addition, I would also glue the Square of Mercury to the front of the honey jar as Mercury rules over both communication and travel. In fact, I would even build the honey-jar and begin working with it on a Wednesday (which is ruled by Mercury).

Pink-candles (for friendship) dressed with Crown of Success Oil should be burned on the honey-jar three times a week (on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) as you sincerely pray Psalm 28

It should be noted that honey-jars are notoriously slow-acting, however, in my experience, you can see results inside a week by doing three things. They are:

  1. Place saltpeter in the honey-jar. 
  2. Placing the honey jar on top of an image of St. Expedite. 
  3. Burning three dressed tea-lights around the honey jar in a triangular patter to heat it up. 

Good Luck, and God Bless.

How to Burn a Reversing-Candle Without a Reversing-Candle

Reversing-Candles a Review

Reversing candles are a special type of candle which are used to send evil, curses, and general negativity back to the sender. are comprised of two layers of wax. They are comprised of two layers of wax. The inner layer is red, while the outer layer is black. However, they are just as often sold commercially in the form of what appears to be two joined candles. The top portion is red while the bottom portion is black (see image at left). 

When utilized, the top portion of the candle is cut off turned upside down and new wick is carved out of the bottom portion. This process is called "butting the candle".  Next,  the enemy's name is carved on the candle so that the letters are reversed. It is then dressed with  Reversing Oil and burned on top of a mirror under which the name-paper or photograph of the enemy is placed faced down.

Lastly, the candle is lit with fervent prayer that all the evil that has been sent to you may now be sent back to the enemy. When burned,  the black wax melts down on the red wax symbolically overcoming the evil.  

Making Your Own Reversing Candles 

As stated above, reversing candles are sold commercially by online candle-shops, botanicas, and spiritual practitioners who burn them for clients.  They come in a variety of shapes and sizes including Tapers, Jumbo Candles, and Vigil Lights. 

However, some folks prefer to make their own for a variety of reasons. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
  1. They can't afford to purchase one. 
  2. For whatever reason, they do not have access to online shops or physical retailers where they can be purchased. 
  3. They prefer to make their own because it appeals to their sense of craftsmanship, artistry, and enhances the process of burning them. 

How to Make Your Own Reversing Candles 

Folks who make their own reversing-candles often purchase use red-candles and black ones. They cut up the black candles into small pieces and remove the wicks. The black wax is slowly melted over low heat and then herbs for reversing such as bay leaves, ginger, knot weed, devil's shoe string, red pepper are sprinkled over the wax. Finally, the red-candles are rolled through the black wax so that it adheres to the red-candle resulting in a candle that is black on the outside and red on the inside. 

Some folks may find this a messy process and, in some ways, I agree. The method I am about to share with you now was taught to me by one of my mentors early on in my spiritual journey. It utilizes a plain white-candle, red-yarn, and white yarn. 

Start with a plain, white-candle. Cut the tip off the top of the candle, turn it upside down and dig a new wick out of the bottom as previously described. Next, using a sharp knife, divide the candle in half by carving a groove all the way around the candle at its center. 

Cut a length of black yarn, put a bit of reversing oil on both your thumb and fore-finger and run the yarn between them transferring the oil to the yarn. Now, tie the black-yarn around the center of the candle and wrap it away from you moving up the candle and secure this with a pin. Cut a length of red-yarn and dress it with the reversing oil as before. Tie it around the center of the candle just under where the black-yarn begins and wrap around the candle towards you towards the bottom of the candle. This can then be secured with another pin or placed in the candle-holder in such as way that it holds the yarn in place.

Finally, place the candle on top of a mirror with your written-petition, photograph, etc... face down on top of the mirror (but also under the candle). The candle may then be lit as you make your prayer or petition and the candle is allowed to burn out as usual. 
Additional Applications 
This process may also be used with other colors for example, use green/black candles to reverse a money jinx or pink/black to reverse a love-jinx, etc...If you find that all you have are white candles and wish to incorporate color into your workings you can wind a piece of colored yarn around your candle (towards you to attract, or away from you to repel). 
Finally, even if you have the color of candle that you desire, you may still use this method in your own workings by using a secondary-color that compliments the working. For example, a yellow candle with green yarn (or vice versa) for a money-drawing ritual.

A Rootworker's Lure for Love and Attraction

Obtain a length of red yarn twice the length of your own height and tie a fish hook on one end. Dress the fishhook with any love-drawing type oil.  Sit comfortably and say "With God's blessings and these tools, may I become a fisher of men. In Jesus name. Amen"

Now mentally focus on the man, or a type of man,  you wish to attract as you slowly roll the yarn into a ball dragging the fishhook towards you as you do. Imagine that you have "hooked" your man and are drawing him to you. You may wish to pray Genesis 2:24 "
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."

When you are done, unroll the ball of yarn and start over again. Repeat this 9 times in a row. When you are done, store the ball of yarn with the fish hook in a safe place. If you desire, the last time you roll up the ball, you may include certain herbs, roots, and / or personal concerns conducive to love-drawing in the manner of a jackball.This rite may also be performed in conjunction with the burning of fixed candle, and/or an appropriate incense

Tituba: Our Lady of Conjure

Tituba: A Brief History 

History remembers Tituba as a slave-woman owned by Rev. Samuel Parris. Though she has been described as an Indian, a Negro, or both court records from that time describe her as “Indian woman, servant”. Little is known about her early life except that she hailed from South America where lived in an Arawak Village from which she was captured and taken to Barbados as a slave. As a teenager, she was purchased in Barbados by Samuel Parris who brought her to Boston in 1680 and later to Salem.

In early 1692, two girls named Elizabeth Parris and Abigail Williams began to exhibit strange behavior that could not be explained or diagnosed by medical science at the time. Doctors eventually declared that their condition was caused by the Devil himself. The Reverend Parris conducted a prayer service in hopes of banishing the evil that he believed had come to Salem to torment the girls.

Though some sources have claimed that Tituba practiced Voodoo which she taught to the girls of Salem in the form of fortune-telling or doll-magic, no sources from the Salem Witch Trials make any such reference. However, it is known that Tituba, along with her husband, John Indian, and a woman named Mary Sibley baked a “witch cake” using rye meal and the urine of the two girls which they fed to a dog. This was done in order to attempt to reveal the identities of the witches who had afflicted Elizabeth and Abigail. Under pressure to name their tormentors, the girls accused Tituba, Sarah Goode, and Sarah Osborn.

Sarah Goode and Sarah Osborn maintained their innocence. At first, Tituba denied practicing witchcraft but later confessed under pain of torture of having spoken with the Devil, traveled on sticks to various places, and seeing various familiars in the form of black dogs, hogs, red cats, a wolf, and a yellow bird.  She also maintained that a cabal of witches were living in and acting against the populace of Salem, inadvertently sparking the witch-craze that lead to the Salem Witch Trails of 1692.

After Tituba’s confession the isolated behavior exhibited by Elizabeth and Abigail became an epidemic resulting in many more townsfolk finding themselves on the wrong side of an accusing finger. They went on to label many others as witches, many of whom were subsequently tortured, tried, and executed; before which, like Tituba herself, named other supposed witches repeating the cycle of accusation, torture, and confessions.

In spite of confessing to what was, at the time, a capitol offense punishable by death Tituba inexplicably avoided both a trial and execution. As the trials went on, she recanted her confession saying that she had lied to protect herself, but it did little to improve her situation. She endured in jail for a year as Reverend Parris refused to pay for the cost of her imprisonment. Eventually, she was released when an unknown individual paid her fine and spirited her away from Salem Village after which she seems to fade into history.

Tituba: Our Lady of Conjure 

Despite the facts of her trial, the historical Tituba has grown into an almost mythological figure. Today many folks see her as the link between Hoodoo and Witchcraft --and by extension Wicca as well. In addition to her own image, that of her husband John Indian can often be found on her altar. This dovetails beautifully with the Wiccan idea that the divine often takes on both male and female form. That being said, I am in no way suggesting that Tituba and John Indian are Gods but rather are two very powerful spirits.

Her altar consists of the four elemental tools associated with Modern-Wicca (the wand, cup, athame, and pentacle), as well as Tarot Cards, Poppets, a crystal ball, incense, candles etc.... In our temple, her altar also holds an obsidian egg on its own stand as Tituba is thought to have taught the practice of divination by eggs. However, ritual divination is often performed on the temple altar by cracking eggs in a clear glass of water and reading the signs. Finally, whether is is love, prosperity, health, protection, justice, divination, cleansing, or crossing, or road-opening.... Tituba's altar encompasses all petitions.
