Krazil -

Maybe you haven't had a chance to check all the links I provided before but a rather large list of items can be found on this page - http://www.luckymojo.com/protectionspells.html - under "PROTECTIVE CHARMS WORN ON THE PERSON" many of the ones found here are favorites for people as pocket pieces.

You may also be interested in a mojo bag to carry for protection such a the Fiery Wall of Protection Mojo - http://www.luckymojo.com/mojo-1x-fiery- ... ction.html

Depending on your situation, something else might suit you better like a Van Van mojo - http://www.luckymojo.com/mojo-1x-van-van.html or Fear Not To Walk Over Evil mojo - http://www.luckymojo.com/mojo-1x-fear-n ... -evil.html

Being so concerned with protection as you seem to be I'd suggest getting a reading with a reader or rootworker at AIRR - http://readersandrootworkers.org/ - that can help you with your particular situation. With everything we've already spoke about here, you may be using a shotgun when all you need is a sling shot ;)

Sister Jean -

You're most welcome and thank you for your diligence in the forums. Your posts and many of the other moderators are inspiring!

RevJames --

You ought to be a moderator yourself -- you are that good. But first, to qualify, you would have to take my course and graduate. How about it? :-)

This question is for catherineyronwode.

Hello I was reading some threads and I seen that you make jewelry for people. What number will I need to call to get that done and who would I speak with? Also what do I send in to you? Could I get something made for these things here:

I want to remove any jinx that was ever put on me and my son

I want protection from those who wish me and my son harm

I want a life full of prosperity for me and my son.

Cici -

When in doubt, Psalm 23 is a good go-to. You can also check out the AIRR page on the Book of Psalms for more scripture with various attributions -http://readersandrootworkers.org/wiki/C ... _of_Psalms
There are many for protection and a couple for luck.

Hope that helps!

Hello CiCi,

That article may not refer to an item commercially available at luckymojo. The article's purpose may be of merely mentioning the charm's historical value, since that is also a concern of the luckymojo archive. I'm thinking that if it was carried by luckymojo it would have a direct "add to cart" button through which you could purchase it.

Either way, for further reference, here's a complete catalogue of what LM has in store, divided into propper classifications: http://www.luckymojo.com/catalogue.html

This is a link to a specific catalogue of every amulet carried by LM, you might want to have a look into it:
http://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatamulets.html

Needless to say that this forum, being connected to the LM as it is, foccuses on discussing products that are carried by the shop. Telling you where you could find it elsewhere, commercially, would be a bit unfitting. But I suppose you could try antique shops and ebay. That was a cute choice, btw :)

Good luck!

Cordially,
Asturias.

Hi, CiCi --

I do not "make" jewelry, but i do prepare charms and lockets for clients. I do not do this for the public at learge, just for my personal rootwork and reading clients. The cost is relatively modest, and you may supply your own jewelry if you wish, which cuts down on the cost. SImply book a reading with me and we can discuss it.

If you want to attempt to bless and consecrate your own amulets or jewelry, one method, using Holy Trinity Vigil Candles was posted by Rev. Ernest, here. Check it out!

Good luck.

I read the "read me" file in this section, and the oils page, but could not find my specific question answered. It may have been generally answered but I want to be sure I understand.

I keep a crystal that a friend gave me as a ward or guardian at my place of work. I want to baptize it and anoint it. Which anointing oil should I use? A protection oil? Or is there something more all purpose. It's not that I want to keep troubled people away - I just don't want them to cause any harm.

Also, if I was making a doll for healing someone of past trauma, which anointing oil would be best for that?

And finally, is anointing a way of feeding, and how often should it be done?

So sorry if this is already written about somewhere and I just missed it. The site is so vast I tend to get lost. Thank you all for all you do. <3

Hello Desert Lavender,

Welcome to the Lucky Mojo forum! We're happy to have you here.

I moved your post to this thread about anointing and dress amulets and other objects, since that seemed to be the closest to what you are asking. In the future, please don't start new topics; instead, find the thread that best addresses your question and post there.

You'll find lots of information here about what you're trying to do! Protection oil would be great for your crystal guardian. And you could dress your doll with Healing oil.

http://www.luckymojo.com/oil-protection.html

Take care!

Thanks for all the advice.

I had a hard time finding this. It didn't show up in my notifications. I decided to type "anointing doll" into the search box and it lead me right here. I really appreciate your answers.

I have another question about dolls, in the sense that a doll is used for a surrogate or effigy. I've read about people using all kinds of things for dolls - even playing cards, and I wondered -- and I hope this doesn't sound crazy -- but could a separate FaceBook page be used as a "doll," or healing surrogate? The worker would send positive posts, blessings, psalms, images, etc. to this other part of the self that needs healing?

Desert Lavender,

I'd have to say no to the Facebook idea as a doll baby. I mean it's a great idea to move forward with healing work but a dolly is something physical that you can hold and work with your hands or body. I wish you the best with your work though. I would check out the doll pages of the forum for more ideas. general-doll-baby-voodoo-doll-poppet-qu ... t8946.html

Hi!

In my personal life I have always been big on wearing jewelry. I use it for a lot of things like grounding, protection, and even just sometimes to feel close or bonded to my boy friend or friends.

I already have a hamsa amulet from Israel from when my Aunt and Uncle went; besides that I have nothing that I can think of for this practice.

Now that I am looking into Hoodoo and hoping to start a correspondence I was wondering what types jewelry are actually important and what would be recommended to get first.

Jackiie3xld --

In discussing the use of jewelry in hoodoo, you would wish to look back to the origins of the practice among African American slaves. There would have been very limited opportunities for personal adornment, but it is clear when reviewing the anecdotes and comments by slave-owners and by escaped slaces that coins (pierced with a hole and worn at the neck or at the ankle) stand out as quite important.

After emancipation, all the forms of adornment available to free people were adopted by African Americans, both those who practiced hoodoo and those who did not. Symbolic jewelry -- such as pieces that depicts hearts, hoseshoes, four-leaf clovers, hands, eyes, and the like, could be seen as both ornamental or as amulets. Youching them with a spiritual oil and praying over them would keep them working.

Beginning around 1900, as African American people experinced more fluidity in social mingling, an interest arose among rootworkers in adopting Jewish (and Jewishinfluenced Christian) forms of occult and hermetic magic. At that time, emblems like the Seals of Mose, Seals of Solomon, and other sigils, signs, and seals, originally designed for writing on parchment, were crafted in metal, and these have been popular in hoodoo for more than 100 yars now.

I hope this helps.

Hello colliz,

Yes, you could dress his keys or phone case lightly in one of the love oils or sachet powders that corresponds to your goal. Be sure to only lightly dress them so your work goes undetected.

Also, please do not sign your posts as this takes up forum space.

Good luck.

After speaking my intention of each of my crystals and putting them in a white mojo bag (after cleansing them with salt) may I put a few pinches of salt in the bag and charge the stones by keeping the bag in the sun here and there?

Shutter,

I'm not familiar with working with crystals this way. All I can say is give it a try and see if it works. When treading on new ground, I like to keep a journal of the goal I am working toward, ingredients added, and words or psalms said in the new spell. Then I go back a few weeks later and write down the results. I would give this a try to track your progress with it.

Best of luck!

Hi Shutter,

There isn't much crystal usage in the Hoodoo tradition, as far as I'm aware. We use lodestones, pyrite, and minerals like salt, but there isn't any crystal healing or new age gridding, or anything of of that nature. If you do use crystals you'll be innovating, and I think Terra Rising's advice about journalling will serve you well :).

Good luck!

Hello Shutter,

FiachnaCybele is correct. Crystals and other stone amulets are not part of the hoodoo tradition. Minerals as she mentioned, including lodestones and pyrite, play a role but crystals come from other traditions. Nothing stops you from incorporating them in your work, but there is no hoodoo-related advice on their use.

Good luck.

Hello all,
I was wondering what would be a good talisman to wear or get to help with finding a new job? I’m a single woman with no kids if that would make a difference too. Also, will I dress it with steady work oil or van van oil? I was thinking sw oil since I wanted to use it for a job, but I wanted to make sure. Thank you for your time and patience!

birainluv,

Have you considered a mojo? Lucky Mojo makes a Steady Work mojo in regular or triple strength. It is recommended that you dress it with Steady Work oil but people have been known to dress mojos with whiskey as well. There is also a Steady Work spell kit that makes a mojo hand after completing it.

Hey Terra,
I never thought about that actually. That’s a really good idea. For future reference, is a Sacajawea a coin that can be used in that manner? Also, is it just for a woman with children? I was trying to find more info but I don’t think I was looking in the right direction. Thank you for your time and patience!

birainluv,

It is used for single mothers but it could also be used for women who are seeking employment. She was an independent woman who worked hard to support herself and family.

I'm also fond of the Walking Liberty coin. It shows a woman draped in the US flag, walking with the sunrise behind her. It is commonly used for freedom and independence. I am independent woman, I live my life on my terms and that means having a good job and depending on no one else for my happiness and needs.

Hello and welcome to the forum! I moved your post to this thread on talismans. I have to kindly ask that you do not create new topics, please use the search bar in the upper right to search a subject. If you are unable to find what you're looking for, please post a question using the Quick Reply at the bottom of the page. It can take a lot of time moving things around and this helps us keep the forum in order. We appreciate the help.

If you know the name of the talisman you could do a search for it on the forum. You could also look over the amulet list located here: https://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatamulets.html
I haven't heard of the talisman myself. If you call the Lucky Mojo shop they might have some more information. 707-887-1521 or email them at https://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatmap.html

Hi all! I'm a long time lurker, this is finally my first post on this forum.

I wanted to ask if anyone could give me a little more information on a pendant I bought when 20 years ago (I was 11! That's when I started dabbling), it is made up of 2 1959 Nigerian coins like the ones Lucky Mojo sells here (https://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatamulets.html#nigeria) but they are soldered together and they hold an iridiscent glass marble in the center. Both stars of David/Solomon are facing the outside. I don't know if they hold anything else on the inside, but there is a small opening where things could get through.
When I bought it, they just told me it was for protection, but why this coin? why this arrangement with the marble? does anyone know?

It's always drawn A LOT of attention and feels very powerful. Some days it gives me the creeps. Other days it feels ok. But it always commands respect. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

I have not worn it regularly for a few years, and I've never "prepared" it before, but I want to start wearing it again. Would a VanVan oil + psalm prayer be enough? Would it undo any previous work done unto it?

Hello MariM,

Welcome to the Lucky Mojo forum. We're glad you have joined in the conversation.

This does sound like a protection amulet. I can't tell you why it is arranged in the manner you describe, but you can continue to work it for your protection. I would dress it with Protection or Fiery Wall of Protection oil myself, but you could certainly use Van Van oil with it. It will not undo any previous work done on the amulet.

I hope this helps. Good luck.
