Hi, my names James! I'm a (at the time of this posting) 26 year old southerner, transplanted to the North East :D

I grew up in a trailer in South Carolina with a deeply rooted Southern Baptist family. My Summers included exploring the Kudzu jungle in my backyard, playing with the craw dads in the creeks, visiting with my grandparents in the North Georgia Mountains near the beginning of the Appalachian trail (they frequently had hikers that were lost wind up coming down the mountain ending up at their doorstep and were greeted with cool well water and a hot meal.) I would have to say it was my great-grandparents that started me on my journey to learning "beyond" what they believe. Devout Christians that they are they taught me about the plants and trees (sourwood, blood root, yellowroot, etc were very common POI during hikes), the "old timey" way of healing things like talkin' the fire out (which I had to have done as a child - FIRM believer, not one scar was left), and about the Cherokee, which we visited the reservation often. She to this day talks about the "little people" they called them, in the trees :) . While not their intention they opened my eyes to a whole new world and way of thinking, to which they've never really shy'd me away from except "witchcraft is evil" :lol: .

Anywho, around age 10 I started studying alternative philosophy and religion. My first interaction with Lucky Mojo were oil's at a local New Age shop around the age of 12-13, called Dragon's Treasure. This place became my home on the weekends for YEARS afterward. The people there were mentors and I still have very strong connection with them today (One has since become a surrogate father, as I've been lacking any real father figure since the age of 2). From 14-18 years old I was taught an eclectic craft similar to a Gardnerian path "degree system". Which ended up leading me to hoodoo specifically as a way to incorporate my spiritual/magickal side with my Southern Baptist Christian roots. Since learning about Lucky Mojo it has become my GO-TO for anything hoodoo. I always find something new here that I didn't see (or don't remember seeing HA!) from before. Last year, due to my AMAZINGLY encouraging fiance, I was FINALLY able to purchase directly from the store, got a ton of books, and a ton of herbs and curios that are hard to find elsewhere (or that i trusted anyway). So, a year later and only short 2-3 books by the amazing authors and graduates at LM, here I am.

I'm excited to become a part of the community actively as I've become VERY weary of some of the craziness that is Facebook "hoodoo" groups :roll: .

Hello, RevJames,

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!!

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

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:

Candles:

Herbs:

Conditions and how we can address them:
http://luckymojo.com/hoodooataglance.html

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
