Thank you Cat for taking the time to reply to my post. I admit that at first, I did feel a bit dismissed as I was very confused and I really was just looking for help and direction in spellcasting/or what to buy. I was after some direction from someone experienced and I felt I could do this on my own if I had a little bit of a helping hand. But, after reading it again I could see what was meant about being confused and going ahead blindly with some products or spellwork on my own, which would have been kind of like stabbing in the dark without knowing what you're stabbing at or with what and hoping for a specific outcome. So, I took your advice under wing and I've done a fair amount of research educating myself and reviewing the posts on this forum and of course the LM websites and sister sites. I think that what I originally asked for as being "the strongest and best kind or type of product/work" is now the most appropriate and effective for the situation and desired outcome...i think that's more like it, right? Anyhow, I'm going to order your book, and I've definitely got my eye on that hoodoo correspondance course too. First Hoodoo practitioner in Canada..sounds cool...."eh"..?
One step at a time, though..
There was several reasons for my confusion and I'd like to exlain to all of you why, but it was primarily because I am new to this Hoodoo in it's pure form, which is why I asked for help. But also, like Cat said that she doesn't know of anyone in Canada that does rootwork because it developed in the southern US, there are very few people here who actually know about hoodoo, much less know how to do it, have done it or even know it's proper definition as a spiritual means to help in life, mainly because it was developed in the deep Southern US.
Here's an example. I'm a very friendly and open minded person and I like to meet new people and from time to time over the years, I meet someone who I know I can ask something like "Hey, do you know anything about Hoodoo, like rootwork and the such?" and this is what I've gotten in response from ALL who've recognized the word or think they know what I mean..."Oh!! You mean the rock formations out west, eh? Right??". Just like Cat was saying Hoodoo was developed in the southern US, this point hasn't escaped me because it's rare that anyone actually knows what it is and when they do (at least all the people I've asked about it).....this is what they're referring to...
I'm being completely serious here. This is kinda' funny, but after months and years of this...well, I'm sure you can see how frustrating it would get. Which is why I was so pleased to find the forum and your site and LM in general.
What makes it worse is when you do actually find someone who does this sort of work, or rather claims
they do Hoodoo, it's usually not hoodoo but a bastardized sort of a mish mash of a lot of different things, but nothing reasonably close to the discipline and structure Hoodoo contains and rarely produces results. For example, there are some readers who will burn candles for you and advise to do certain things for problems/desires which include putting a stone under your pillow for one or several nights while you sleep and returning it to them to show the proper way to solve your woes, problem or get your desire. Some are honest and most aren't. Some are cheap and will charge based on work+materials required and their energy and will charge as the work progresses and if it doesnt they tell you other options or just say 'i can't help you'. These people are few and far between as the majority of them (from my experience and a few other people who have been searching for spiritual workers or rootworkers) are frauds and are out for money and they're gone in a few months and at that point there's a lot of complaints to the police about these people making promises to help an getting away with thousands of dollars from people. The police say that with so many complainants willing to go to court, they would arrest them on fraud charges if they could find them, but they're usually gone pretty quickly. Rarely will you find someone who is in the same place/shop for years at a time and even then, the results are hit and miss. One girl I know paid almost $1200 US approximately for drawing a particular man, who she worked with in the cubicle right next to her and went out with from time to time. As far as situations go, this is as ideal as it gets, close and regular contact with the man she wants, she went out with him for business and social event several times a week, opportunity to secure personal items, even underwear as she's been over to his place many times and he trusts her but doesn't think of her sexually even though she's tried some advances in that department, and there's already a relationship that can be built on...but after 6 months and promises of 'you'll see results soon' from the spiritual worker, there came the obvious request for more money ($1800US) if the work is to be a success. She said no thankfully after we discussed it and within a few days, the worker was gone and there was another influx of complaints to the police and consumer reporting agencies.
I'm sharing this with all of you because it is very easy to be misled an when there is really no information around here that I'm aware of to start with and after years of dealing with this mish-mash garbage where every worker you meet has a different way of doing things, but get no results, you tend to get very confused as to what is real. Hence, the use of my quotations for the designation of rootworker. There are none up here. Send some, please. And hurry. I'll need a very big jar of Love Me oil if I have to annoint that hoodoo rock formation in Alberta. And a train ticket too.....
Anyhow...I feel that I do have the semblance of mind and control to try and do this work on my own. Mainly, because I have no choice, really. NO rootworkers up here--see above
I've meditated for years and my visualization skills are a bit better than average and I'm old enough to have the mental focus to not allow my emotions to get the better of me, and I know that this will be a success built of many small successes if it is to work. Now all I have to do is research and focus my energies of my desired outcome towards the spell goal, which I understand is the primary or one of the primary driver or keys to success, right so far...? Any and all Input or clarification is appreciated.
As I mentioned, I've read a lot on the spells/products and I'm going to be ordering a break-up spell kit, some various oils and herbs and some other candles from LM.****
I've decided to start my own little honey jar while I wait for the items to arrive and get started on some real work in the meantime. I know this may seem obvious to some of you, but I'm feeling pretty darned good about this and I'm quite excited to do it and see the results.
I have some questions about the jar. Can I get a regular jar and just pour some honey from another container into it and if so, do I put all the items such as the name paper/petition, herbs, and personal concerns in BEFORE I pour the honey in---Or should I put them in one by one as I'm pouring the honey it, like the name paper/petition first and then the herbs and then the personal concerns...or...do i pour all the honey in the jar and then stick the items in and if this last one is right, does it have to be put in to the very bottom or can i just stick em' in with my finger?
About the herbs, I went through the herb pages and here's what I have selected and until I can get the LM products, it's proving to be difficult to find some of them, but I'm sure I'll get it. What do you think about the following herbs, to be used to sweeten a married woman I have a relationship with who is becoming a little inconsiderate and cold in her actions towards me, although the relationship is still there. Just an overall sweetening of her to make her nicer to me and of course deepen the love aspects...
For this purpose, I've selected (still to find some of em')---Gentian root, Cardamon seeds, cinammon chips, Juniper berries, Coriander seeds, deers tongue, rose petals and/or rosebuds (do they have to be fresh.?), lavender flowers, cubeb berries, catnip(i was shocked about this one!), ginger root, verbena/vervain and cherry bark and maybe some cloves...
Now this is a lot of herbs and they all seem to be geared towards the effects I'm after but I'm not sure if there is a limit on how many to put in, kind of like the 3, 6, 9 numbers commonly found in hoodoo. Any ideas on how many to use and what would be the most ideal for this situation?
I also gonna' do a honey jar on her Mom, who doesnt like me all of a sudden. Any ideas on herbs for this one because it's not for sexual love but to sweeten her to me or should I use a mix of just a few of the above
She's married, so I'm going to do this slower honeyjar work to keep her interested until I get the break up kit and well...then what..? Do I do a Come to me? kit or a Love me kit?
Also, would a hotfoot spellkit be appropriate to work at the same time as the breakup kit to hotfoot her husband out of there? And would it be appropriate to use a Cut and Clear for each of them, so they can make the break easier to bear and more permanent?
I'm also thinking of doing a honey jar to make him a little sweeter to another woman he talks to who's a family friend. Has anyone ever done this before, using a honey jar for someone you're working on to kind of get them interested in someone else...?how did it go and how would it be done please.
Finally, I'm going to have LM do some vigils for me during this time and I wanted to know what would be the most appropriate for this situation...would fire of love, dixie love, or just the simple Love me spell be the best here? I'm guessing that it's the Love me, but I'm gearing this question towards the longterm goal of having her and I together exclusively after her break-up which has been a longtime coming but harder to do.
About this situation, I have had a few divinations done before pursuing the work and all 3 readings said thankfully that, her feelings for me are genuine, she will leave and she's wanted to for years but is understandably scared, and there is a strong chance of the work being a success, but I have to be a part of it too which is why I'm asking for help here. These were from reputable rootworkers who live in the south, so I'm feeling rather good and positive about all of this but I'm not going into it as blind as I was before when I really was quite confused.
I've got some direction now and until I get Cat's book and LM's products, I'm doing the best I can with what limited hoodoo resources and products are available here in Canada. By the way, is there anyone/groups in the Toronto area who know/do Hoodo---??If so, Please PM me---we can speak via email, meet or whatever feels comfortable for all concerned.
Here's something else you might find funny, but it's completely serious...I inquired of a spiritual worker I know if he had any war water and he asked me what I was using it for and I said I was going to do a 'homemade bottle spell' for a break up and he told me not to worry to come back later that night and he'd give me something that would work better. So, I came back later and he handed me a bottle and asked for fifty dollars and I asked what it was as it was warm and he said it was urine..but it wasn't any ordinary urine...it was MAGIC urine and if I put broke the whole bottle on their doorstep, they would start fighting right away. So, I asked him who's urine it was and what was in it, because he said it was an old hoodoo formula he knew from way back (he was kinda' smart--at least he remembered me asking if he knew anything about hoodoo) and he said nothing special...ummm...well this and that...it's a secret. So, I asked to see it and he handed it to me....and the bottle was still warm. It was in a clear jar and there was nothing other than urine in it. I told him thanks but no thanks and left and he didn't seem to care but was a little surprised and said okay..how's thirty bucks sound then? Dude tried to sell me a bottle of his own pee as a break up jar for fifty bucks and then red-tagged it to thirty when I called him on his scam.
He was right about one thing though--if I had broken that on my lovers doorstep, there would definitely have been a fight and she'd be fighting ME for putting pee all over her doorstep!!
Oh, one last thing. Does anyone know of any rootworkers that are in the northern states that are close to our border, like Michigan or Buffalo? It's still far, but I can drive there in a few hours. And If there is anyone here in Canada that would like to put together an order with me, please do let me know as I'm trying to see what other options are available for rush shipping via Fedex as per LM shipping policies****
Wish me luck, and thanks to everyone, newbies and those with experience and of course to Cat for all of LuckyMojo and it's products!!
