Hello

Unread post by MDolemba » Sun Sep 25, 2016 10:26 pm

Hello everyone from the hills of Northern Alabama.

My name is Matthew. Native American and Lithuanian Gypsy folklore and mythology have always been prevalent in my life from a very young age. My mother divorced when I was very young, and I essentially was raised by my Great Grandmother (who immigrated from Lithuania), my Grandmother, and my Mother. Growing up, I always heard stories and tales of Lithuanian Gypsies, and even though we have no Native American Blood in my family, I was also told many Native American Folklore stories and tales. This is due in large part to my Great Grandmother holding a special reverence for Native Americans. I think to some degree she felt a kinship to Native American culture, and found many parallels to Gypsy culture (their belief in tradition, their belief in nature and animals, their persecution, and their expulsion from native lands). Her tradition of finding and retelling those stories carried on to my Grandmother, and my Mother. I can honestly say that I love those three ladies with my whole heart, and my introduction to magik started with them.....even if they didn't realize it.

As I grew older, I began to play music (starting with guitar, and now mainly a drummer), and I became a more traditional artist (drawing, illustration, tattoo, 3D). From there my traditional artist side, and gypsy heritage led me to become interested in the Tarot, and the infinite amount of meanings that can come from the symbols on the cards and "how they fall". My musician side ultimately took me to New Orleans, where I was introduced to Hoodoo/Voodoo, fortunately not through the tourist traps (Don't get me wrong, the shops in New Orleans are an excellent place to get things that are hard to find), but at a head washing ceremony on St. Johns Eve.

I live in a cabin, in the woods, on the side of a mountain (no I'm actually not kidding ha ha) with my full blooded Native American girlfriend, in Northeast Alabama. Here, and in New Orleans, are the only places I have ever felt completely at home. I am looking forward to many good conversations here. I am also saving my nickles and dimes, and am hopeful to be allowed to take the Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course very soon. I already own Catherine's book "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic", and it is an INVALUABLE resource.....of which I have actually almost worn out my paperback version, and will probably order the Hardcover soon. Ha Ha. Anyway, just wanted to say Hello to all.

Matthew

Hello MDolemba,

Welcome to the forum and to the Lucky Mojo family!

I am posting the most popular threads and some forum rules for you to look over.
And we are looking forward to seeing you on the forum.
If you ever have any questions, we are ALWAYS here for you.
Enjoy!!

P.S. Hope you end up taking Cat's course—you'll love it!

These are links to general information on Hoodoo and to give you a jumping off point.

Hoodoo History:

Oils:

Powders:

Herbs:

Conditions and how we can address them:

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

5) Please do not start new topics

6) Please do not quote people
Thank you saints and spirits!
