Hello Miss Aida,

Thank You for your reply!

So should I burn the petition paper because my candle is finished or should I just lay it in my candle when I bring it to the recycling? (blockbuster) Or should I burn the petition with the incense??

Thanks.

Hello, Lovemydogs ,

I personally LOVE burning petitions with incense outside.

What I do (whether it's self lightning incense or not) is this:

I light a charcoal disc, put my petition paper over it, and put the incense over the petition paper. Again, I do this outside

I hope this will help

take care

Hello. recently i began a seven day candle love spell. I know that generally when the candles have melted you bury the left over wax and remains in your yard or potted plant. That is how I have generally done them in the past. However for the next few weeks I am in a condo without a balcony. So my question is rather there are other suitable ways to dispose of the wax in a love spell.

Hello, hornedfrog ,

You could definitely use a potted plant (that's what many people do).

Or, here are other ways: www.luckymojo.com/layingtricks.html

I hope this helps

Hello Miss Aida,

So I tried what you suggested. I lighted some incense which was sitting on top of my petition (because I had to do this inside due to a snow storm that we are having) the incense burned but not all the way. So does it matter that the incense didn't burn all the way and that the petition is not completely burned?

Thank You.

Hello, Lovemydogs,

Yes, unfortunately it DOES matter

Did you light the charcoal and let it get red hot before putting the petition paper n it?

Did you also light the incense from the top and let it burn down?

I've never had a failure with this. So, something was done incorrectly

Sorry!

Thank you so much Miss Aida. I want to order this right now but I wanted to let you know as I have been burning the incense with the petition sitting on top of it for the past few days & it has burned through the petition one quarter of the way, so will the charcoal still be necessary? (Because i'd like to drive the candle over to recycling.)

Hello, Lovemydogs ,

I don't understand why it's talking days to burn a paper. It must be massively huge!

My petition papers take minutes to burn this way.

So, my answer to you is to do what you feel is the right thing to do.

I have faith in you and your instincts.

Hello,

Once you disposed everything by burying it in the graveyard and talking to spirits is there anything else I need to do?
Do I go back and visit that graveyard? Or just allow the spirits to work?

Thanks

Hi Letsdoit2015,

No, do not go back. Once you deploy a spell, entrust it to Spirit and walk away.

Good luck.

Hi Letsdoit2015,

That is excellent. I'm very glad you're getting signs and not stressing too badly.

We always advise people to "set it and forget it" when it comes to spell work. It shows confidence and trust, and these are positive energies for achieving your desired results. By going back to the site of deployment, you are insinuating a lack of faith and this is the easiest way to undermine your own success.

Good luck!

I would like to add that i personally do not "set it and forget it."

Also, i fear that some folks are confusing DISPOSAL and DEPLOYMENT. Remember, DISPOSAL is for remains (old wax, ashes, etc.), which is what this thread is about, and there is DEPLOYMENT of work (which is NOT what this thread is about).

To DEPLOY work is to place it where it will be stepped over, touched, smelled, or otherwise brought into CONTACT with the person i am working on or will be CONVEYED to that person (e.g. by Ants or by the wind). Disposal is for remains -- DEPLOYMENT is the major way of effecting contact and thus bringing about change in folk magic.

This "set it and forget it" thing -- and the conflation of disposal with deployment -- has NEVER been my way of working. Lots of folks say those words, but i actually was never taught them by any of the older African American practitioners i learned from. In fact i was usually taught to do either DEPLOYED work or ONGOING WORK.

To be VERY clear, i was taught by several people to work morning and night for days at a time, fifteen minutes per day, six at morning and six at night or nine at morning and nine at night, or at sunrise and sunset when engaged in long, onfgoing work. I was taught by others to work in runs, one attendance upon the work per day (or night) or to do the work every other day, or to do it for two weeks while the moon grows (or shrkinks) then "lay off" for two weeks, then go back to the work for two weeks. If work was to be deployed, i did so. I rarely was taught to work merely on an altar, as a microcosm, like so many folks now try to do. And there is NO ONE WAY that works for each spell -- these are the timing instructions for many different spells.

I was taught how to END the work, too -- to work it for a specified number of days -- whatever that spell called for -- in runs or sequences, and then to STOP. But to STOP is not to "forget it."

So, count me as one who has been working this was for 50 years and has never once said to myself or to any of my students, "set it and forget it" -- and, truly, that phrase makes no sense to me.

So there you have another country heard from.

I actually buried it at the cemetery so I didn't know what I needed to do next since I'm learning. I keep doing the rest room with name on brown bag (etc.. Want go into details on that) lol
So I didn't know if I needed to start another vinegar jar or just light candles and continue to talk to spirits.

Hello, Letsdoit2015

Why not do both? It can't hurt!!

But please never go back and dig something up at the cemetery (I know that you didn't say that but just wanted to make sure)

Although I am not sure what your spell was for, but for bathroom spells, try this link:

break-up-spell-in-toilet-using-feces-qu ... 21481.html

And, just for the record, I have also never heard of: "Set it and Forget it". It's not part of Hoodoo, Santeria, or Palo teachings..

Wishing you Great success!!

Thank you Miss Aida
I was doing a break up spell.. I have a friend who is being manipulated and played on their vulnerability by someone. Used and all that.
So I'm trying to separate them.

I did the vinegar jar and wanted to take a break so I buried it at cemetery and now that I'm feel good and clear I can refocus now. So didn't know what else to do to keep working on them with the spirits doing their work also.

No i didn't go back to cemetery.
Thanks for the link and information.

Hello everyone,

I have some questions relating to the deployment and disposal of ritual remains at crossroads and would greatly appreciate your feedback and help. There are three, so thank you for bearing with me and reading through.

First, I want to thank Miss Cat very much for her clear and definitive explanation of the difference between disposal and deployment of spells. I had been reading up on this quite a bit but was still confusing one for the other. So thank you! (I believe she did this in a reply to someone in this thread in late February).

Now to my questions:

1) when wishing to bury work at a crossroads, does this have to be right in the centre where the two roads meet, or can I dig a hole at one of the corners of that X? I ask this because there's usually a grassy patch at the outer corners of crossroads in my city while the very centre is paved as is the case in most cities.

2) I've been disposing of simple candle spell remains at waste receptacles placed at busy crossroads (as once recommended by a much-loved and respected conjure doctor who has now passed on). Before leaving the house with the remains, I'd say a prayer and call out to the spirits of the crossroads, name the location and thank them for taking up and honouring my work and intention. This is just so I don’t attract attention to myself when at the crossroads - sometimes I’d pretend I’m on the phone with someone and say my prayer then and there.
My question here is: would this method of disposal and/or deployment suffice for 'heavier' work such as box or jar spells (which usually call for burial)?

3) can candle remains and ashes be deployed by throwing over one's left shoulder at a paved crossroads?
I realize a dirt crossroad is the ideal scenario, but hard to come by in urban areas. I’m thinking deployment will still take place as the remains will be scattered by the wind and driven cars.

Thank you so much for taking the time.
Blessings,
malamo

Hello, Malamo,

To answer your first question, the center of the crossroad.

Miss cat explains everything you have asked in great detail here: www.luckymojo.com/layingtricks.html#crossroads

I don't know if I would put big boxes at a crossroad, though..

After reading this page, if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask

Ok I just got confused. I wanted to get rid of my vinegar jar I just did to start over. So I broke it on the railroad tracks where the person crosses over.

Was I not suppose to break it? Because I needed to start over because I left somethings out.

Hello Letsdoit2015,

IF\f you broke your vinegar jar you you basically stopped that working. If the jar was not done properly to begin with and you were not planning on using it breaking it was not really a bad thing to do. You could have been a little less extreme and just opened the jar up and maybe put the contents in a hole in the ground somewhere off your property, perhaps by a big tree or some other place out of the way. You could have even washed out the jar to use again since it was not made properly to start with.

So in short you did not do anything wrong by breaking it, but not breaking it would not have been wrong either as you can just empty it as well. Good luck with your new vinegar jar!

Peace~

Thanks Nathen

I wasn't sure because I wouldn't had time to bury it on the person property so I just broke it on railroad tracks where they cross at.
I wanted to start over because I thought it wasn't good.
I didn't know if I could pour the contents in their yard since the houses are close to another I couldn't bury.

But I can always jog an pour it out. But didn't know if that works or not.


So I started over and good with this one.

I used to bury my ritual remains in my potted plants by the windows. I can't keep plants in the new room I moved to but there's a piece of wood placed at the threshold of my room and I can squeeze folded up remains under it. Would that count like burying under my front door?

Hello All,

I have some questions. I've been working love candles on my boyfriend but when I'm done I usually throw them in the dumpster just bc I'm usually trying to hide them from my boyfriend. So Tuesday I through some love candles in the trash and Saturday we had a fight and now he not taking my calls. I'm just asking because everything was great before then.

1) Do you think the way I disposed of the candles had anything to do with it?

2) If that's the case what can I do to fix it?

You did not say what kind of candles.

If you were burning figural or free-standing candles, it would not be traditional to throw them in the trash.

You would dispose of the wax. If they are glass encased vigils, you would recycle the glass, not throw it in the trash (the putrescible garbage).

1) You would need a reading. I cannot judge based on the little you have shared here.

2) Try another kind of spell if candles are not working well for you.

Basil --

No. Dawn is usually used for self-bathing. Other times relate to other events, ideas, concepts, or types of work. You COULD do it at dawn, but sunset or midnight on a dark moon seems more appropriate to me to dispose of the vinegar jar. And even that is not a "rule," it's just the way i might work.

Ok if I had vinegar jar with one person in it and I buried it at graveyard. Then I made another with that same person and a friend to break away their friendship. Does it matter how many you bury at a graveyard?
I will go to a different one. But I read burying it at someone who was mean would be a good place to bury it next too with a small board box as headstone?

I want to take a week break to cleanse and free mind or do I just let it sit in a dark place and shake it when I feel the need. Which will be better?

Hello, Letsdoit2015,

It won't hurt if you bury more than one.

Yes, you can bury there.

If you just started another one and just want to take a week break, you can do that and then resume working the jar.

Yesterday I disposed of the candle remains and photo stuck with 9 pins from my Kiss me now mojo ritual into the nearby river according to the instruction that came with the mojo, I asked the spirit of the river to take care of the remains and bring my target to me. I've just finished a moving candle spell and also need to dispose of the enemy candle's remain. Is it totally ok to throw it into the same river? I could walk to a different section to make sure it will flow away from where he lives.

Hello everyone.

I've read the laying tricks article and have done some searching in the forum, but I was wondering if someone could clarify for me:

When it's time for me to dispose of my vinegar jar I just started, I would like to do so at a crossroads. I was going to pour it out over my left shoulder. Should I bury the mason jar somewhere else and bring it home for the moment after pouring it out (or maybe bury it somewhere on the way)? can I take it home and cleanse it? I wouldn't want to smash the glass if at all avoidable... I live in a busy area and lots of people have dogs (and lots of those people probably couldn't afford proper care if their animal gets hurt, not to be disrespectful -- but it's a lower income/newly gentrified area of town). I just don't want to hurt any pups.

I would like to ask the forum moderation to indulge a rather complex question, if you please.
I have been wondering about the five spot pattern used in hoodoo. I had received the information that burning candles in a triangle was a manner of granting strength and confirming the work by the holy trinity. Would the five spot pattern then be a mean to strengthening the work by putting it under the influence of the spiritual force of the crossroads? And if it is so, would that be the so-called "black man of the crossroads"? Other than that, is the "black man" seen as the "owner" of the crossroads itself or merely as one of the spirits that may be called upon in the crossroads?

Reason: decided to move this post into a different thread.

Hi,

I have some fairly large chunks of wax that I need to bury, but I only have small plant pots in which to bury them. Is it alright to break the wax in to smaller pieces to bury?

Thank you x

Hello, Angelkitty ,

I hate breaking them. Can't you bury by a tree?

What about burying it vertically?

Otherwise, then yes, break them in pieces.

Take care

Hello all---I am confused somewhat about disposal of ritual remains (wax, petition papers, glass, etc)---

First -- I am opposed to taking a bag of anything and throwing it out in the street (crossroads), or throwing trash in a river anywhere (basically polluting) or throwing things out that an animal or kids could eat or get hurt stepping on.

Second -- I also would not desecrate anyone's loved one grave by smashing something on a headstone or burying something in a graveyard. I believe we humans need to take much better care of our mother earth than we are currently and this just doesn't feel right to me.

I am doing a ritual to get my nasty hateful trailer trash neighbor to leave me and my property alone.

It would absolutely not be possible to bury anything in my nasty neighbors yard without him or someone in his family seeing me do it, which would just stir up another big pot of harassment for yet another summer. I cannot/will not throw something over in his yard for the same reasons. I am trying to get him to leave me alone, not give him another reason to harass me.

When I have wax, petition papers, etc to dispose of can I wrap all up in a trash bag tightly and throw it in my trash can to be buried at the local landfill by our trash service and/or recycle glass votive candles??

I am only finding answer that refer to burying, throwing in water, throwing in a crossroads, etc.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for any help.

lkc001 --

The recycling of glass tubes from vigil candles has been covered here many, many times, and that is a non-starter. We all recycle glass. I have no idea where you got the idea we do not do so. If you want more information on the topic of recycling glass, please read this thread from the beginning or please read my book "The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic" or please read my free public web site on the subject (the section starting "Most folks just put the candle glasses into the regular recycling ..."):

http://www.luckymojo.com/layingtricks.html

However, even after you get that squared away, you are still left with your ideas about "desecrating graves" that indicate to me that your cultural and personal beliefs are such that the practice of hoodoo may not be a natural "fit" or match for you.

You ask about throwing spell remnants in the trash.

Okay, well, on the very first page of this thread, back in April, 2009 (five years ago as i write this now), i wrote, "The reason we do not put ritual remains in a dumpster is because, depending on the job, those items may be heavily invested with spiritual power."

And that is the basis of how we work and it has not changed.

Now, you could burn it all, you know, and that is also discussed there in that same post.

Next, when we bury something in a graveyard, we are not "desecrating graves" and we don't just randomly choose a grave as a disposal site. We are calling upon the spirits of the helpful dead to work against our enemies or to hold them down for us.

I suggest that you seriously consider whether hoodoo is a practice you wish to follow. It may simply be too far off your cultural or personal track. There is no shame in this. It is GOOD to recognize what one will and will not do. Speaking for myself, i will not join any Afro-Diasporic religion because i refuse to sacrifice living animals to deities or spirits. I don't say that it is wrong for others; i just know it is not right for me. So, if working with the spirits of the dead is not "right" for you, and you consider that a "desecration," then perhaps a different form of magic would be best for you.

Good luck.

Hello,
I’ve read the forum but still have questions regarding what to do with spell remnants. Over the course of a few months I performed a couple four candle rituals that were drawing to me in nature. I wrapped the remnants of all four in separate white cloths and tied them with string. I placed them in a Ziploc bag and keep them in a plastic container. I did this because I am a little confused on the laying of tricks portion and not sure how to proceed. Should I bury them in my yard? I live in an apartment building and I am concerned about them being dug up. Or should a throw them in a crossroads? I live in a major city so the majority of crossroads are high traffic intersections. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance for any and all help.

Hello neophyte79,

Some people will bury attractive and positive work Ina potted plant they keep in there apartment. Of course if you do a lot of work this is not sustainable but is a good solution for someone who doesn't do a ton of work.

You might also go to a park or forest somewhere and find a good strong sturdy tree, develop a relationship with that tree and ask it to look over the works that you bury there or place in its branches.

Hope this is helpful

Peace~

Hello Nathen,
Thank you very much for the suggestions. The help is greatly appreciated. I have one last question. Is it bad that I keep them in a Ziploc bag for a months now and is it too late to put them in the earth now? Thank you again.

Sup Guys,

Gotta few questions that need answering:

1. I am renting, so all the work i'm doing has been piling up in my storage, it's about time I bury them in something- Vegas and our landscaping- we dont have actual dirt like parks & places of that nature, plus If I bury my work at a park, I can get a violation for that & go to jail since it's an issue. I also live with my mother & a roommate. If I buy these plants, and put my work in them- that would mean the magic is still alive correct?

2. Can I put more than one of my spiritual remains in a potted plant? (i.e. Money Drawing, Lavender Love, Psychic Vision etc) or do I get individual plants?

3. If the plant dies...-(cause eventually every living thing dies), does that mean the magic wears off or does it mean I throw the plant away? What would I do with the dead plant?

Hello, Jaime Banks

"SUP" ????? <---Love it! LOL !

I will answer each question after the question

1. I am renting, so all the work i'm doing has been piling up in my storage, it's about time I bury them in something- Vegas and our landscaping- we dont have actual dirt like parks & places of that nature, plus If I bury my work at a park, I can get a violation for that & go to jail since it's an issue. I also live with my mother & a roommate. If I buy these plants, and put my work in them- that would mean the magic is still alive correct?- CORRECT

2. Can I put more than one of my spiritual remains in a potted plant? (i.e. Money Drawing, Lavender Love, Psychic Vision etc) or do I get individual plants?-INDIVIDUAL PLANTS

3. If the plant dies...-(cause eventually every living thing dies), does that mean the magic wears off or does it mean I throw the plant away? What would I do with the dead plant?- The whole idea is that if the plant grows, so will the spell. So, I would definitely repeat the spell if the plant dies. And that dead plant would have to be disposed of properly: www.luckymojo.com/layingtricks.html

Wishing you the best

take care

Hi,

I am staying at a friend's house in another city and wanted to ask how the best way might be to dispose of love ritual remains, as I do obviously want to keep them close or fix their influence. What would be the best way if this isn't my hometown?

Thanks.

So Fox,

My recommendation that my mentor Aida mentioned to me- was buy a house plant, and bury it in there. Keep it alive as well. I would put it out on the front porch or keep it in your bedroom next to a window sill.

Hope that sorta helps.
