Greetings, Everyone!

Unread post by Miss Athena » Sun Dec 08, 2013 1:17 pm

Hello,

I am relatively new to the forum and have posted a few times, but haven't formally introduced myself yet.

My name is Athena, and I've been interested in hoodoo for a while, but only recently have begun to really engage in the practice. I've been interested in spiritual arts all of my life, and come from a long line of folk magic practitioners (although not in the hoodoo tradition). My family originated in Greece, and we have a longstanding tradition of cultural beliefs and practices. My deepest memory as a child was of relatives constantly spitting on me whenever they would visit...three spits on my head every time they would see me. Anyone looking in from the outside might have called the authorities, but they were simply blessing me and keeping evil spirits away from me. Yes, I was spat on quite a bit growing up!

My maternal grandmother (who I was named after) was the local "healer" in our community...people would call her to find out if someone had put the evil eye on them or a loved one, and she would conjure up the answer and dispatch a remedy to anyone afflicted. I thought it was a charming superstition as a child, but as an adult I realize how deeply ingrained these traditions are, and I find them culturally and spiritually fascinating.

I have had several readings from AIRR workers and have been amazed by them all...they are lovely and truly gifted people. I'm working with one of them on a current situation and learning quite a bit in the process. These forums have also been a treasure of advice and information and I am grateful to have found this place. My LM supplies are multiplying rapidly and I'm looking forward to taking cat's course in the new year.

I just wanted to say hello and I hope to get to know you all. Thank you for making me feel welcomed, as I really feel I have found a home here.

Hi Athena and welcome to the Forum in an official manner! Glad you've introduced yourself.

Alhtough you're probably already aware, here are a few of the most popular pages for you to browse, they'll get you started. And, some forum rules that we ask everybody to read.

Hoodoo History:
http://luckymojo.com/hoodoohistory.html

Oils:
http://luckymojo.com/oils.html

Baths:
http://luckymojo.com/baths.html

Powders:
http://luckymojo.com/powders.html

Incense:
http://luckymojo.com/incense.html

Candles:
http://luckymojo.com/candlemagic.html

Herbs:
http://herb-magic.com

Here is some info on how the forums are set up. It is divided into four parts:

1) News and Announcements about the Lucky Mojo Curio Company and this site.

2) Lucky Mojo Spiritual Supplies and how to use them, listed in threads by product type and product title.

3) Life Conditions and Situations, with recommended Lucky Mojo products, spells, and advice.

4) The Online Hoodoo Community, including sites, events, and outreach sponsored by Lucky Mojo.

When you post, it helps your moderators, who are recompensed volunteers, if you post in the area of the board that is best suited to the archival of your question or comment. That way moderators will not have to move your post or merge it into ongoing threads.

If you can't find a post you made, it may have been moved or merged. Go to your profile by clicking on your name and "search recent posts" -- you will find it.

Within each board section there are STICKY threads -- ones that always stay "stuck" to the top. These are popular discussion-threads that you can read and add to if your questions or comments fall into one of these oft-broached topics. If you don't see a "sticky" that relates to your question, feel free to start a new thread in the relevant section.

We do have a few "thou shalt not" rules here, and they can be found in the Forum Rules link at the top of each page. Most important for newbies are these four common errors to avoid:

1) Please do not come here asking for our formulas for conjure oils or for instructions on how to use spiritual supplies that you bought at a grocery store or at a competitor of ours; this is the Lucky Mojo Forum and is financially supported by the Lucky Mojo Curio Co.

2) Please do not spam the moderators by sending multiple duplicated private messages asking for personal help outside the board; many of our moderators do perform readings and rootwork spell-casting for clients, but they are professionals and you should approach them as you would any other professional.

3) Please do not post illegal copies of material from other web sites or from books.

4) Please do not post put-downs of any group of people based on their religion, race, or national origin, including derogatory comments about religions to which you may have previously been an adherent or comments in which you seek to falsely conflate any religion with the practice of evil sorcery.
