Thanks. I meant the entire mojo. Specifically, if I removed the single stone and replaced it with a matched pair in the same mojo. I totally agree with you about repurposing the lodestones. Or should I start an entirely new mojo, with the matched lodestone pair, and new herbs/curios?

So, my love mojo has been picking up steam! I've run into this guy I work with several times at my favorite coffee shop. Even though we work together, we didn't really talk before now and boy have we talked. I've made sure to rub some Q oil with my semen into my hands before shaking his hand each time we've met (twice so far). I can feel an energy between us and he is exactly what I was looking for in a man; professional, kind, good old country boy, pure of heart, like me. The caveat is that he appears to be straight and super christian. I myself grew up in a christian background and although I have departed from christianity proper, I still retain a strong love for GOD (as the ultimate and universal source of all spiritual traditions). It is not my intention to attempt to convert a straight man and I specifically spoke the intention for a single gay man in my spell. So what gives? Could it be the QE root?

I apologize for the long summary but I'd really appreciate some advice from my fellow practitioners.

Also, I was thinking of re affirming this mojo by doing a lodestone candle spell since I didn't put a pair in the mojo. Im thinking of purchasing the Chuparosa oil for this work in conjunction with the Q oil. Does this sound like a good plan?

Hi. Another question. Can a person have a mojo bag made in the color bag of their choice, or do you have to follow a certain "doctrine of signatures" concerning bag colors. I wanted a "Safe Travel" mojo made with a yellow bag vs. a red bag, "Psychic Vision" made with a white bag ect. Thanks.

You can personally do what suits you, DeborahHarris. I can only speak to the traditional way I try to keep my color symbolism, but no one can tell you what your successful work will look like. Try it out and see if you have good results. If so, keep going...if not, you may want to bring it back around to traditional color symbolism.

DeborahHarris,

You can order your mojo from the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. in a bag colour of your choice -- although it might take us a little longer to make it, so be patient.

Alternatively, you could order a second empty bag and transfer the contents when you get it, then pray over it and tie it.

I recently made my first mojo hand, using LM products. The petition, which I wrote in red marker on torn paper, was for someone I know to have sexual feelings for me. I'm a dude - and so is he - but he has implied to a lot of his friends that he might by gay, as well as the two of us having a strange jealous-competitive relationship that could easily be confused with flirting. So, I wrote my petition, and anointed the paper - in the five point way - with Commanding Oil for a little kick, and Road Opener, so that he becomes open to a relationship. This may seem a little coercive, but the petition is quite tame - I have no intention of forcing ANYONE into bed with me. This is testing the waters. With a shovel. Then, I added catnip, so that he finds me attractive. Then, I added a cut section from one of his unwashed socks. Then, I added drops of Kiss Me Now!, Q Oil, Follow Me Boy Oil, Look Me Over, more Road Opener, and a whole lot of Commanding. Then, I tied it shut with a lot of thread, and spent the night telling it about the guy I had in mind, and our relationship so far. I just wanted to post this and ask if the above mojo seems alright for my intention! And - again - I stress I will not be commanding him to do anything he doesn't want to.

Hi PatrickT .

Did you add anything to the mojo besides a petition, a bit of his sock and oils? No lodestone to draw his affection, or other roots or herbs? By themselves what you have listed doesn't sound terribly effective. You have a good link to him with the sock, but adding a bunch of oils and only one botanical to a bag with a petition doesn't really make a mojo hand.

Also

What do you think Commanding products do, if not Command someone to follow your will?

Hmmm... you totally have a point! Perhaps I'll just call this one an experiment. And maybe Commanding wasn't the best option. Any ideas on what else I should add to the next one?

Are there situations where mojo hands need not be hidden; i.e. I have made protection mojo bags for myself and my husband. Do I need to keep it hidden from him and his hidden from me, even though I made and fixed both of them and we both know that we are in possession of such items?

Thanks so much! MANY MANY MANY BLESSINGS!!!

Couples may know about a mutually-made house protection mojo or personal protection mojo bag, of course. The couple functions as a single entity -- no friends or other family members should see the bag.

Shared bags for travel are often swapped, each holding the other's mojo while they are journeying -- and no one outside the dyadic couple should see either bag.

Your post is being merged into the long thread of general questions and answers about mojo bags.

I was wondering can two petitions be placed in a mojo bag. For instance, a love mojo bag, if one petition - triple focused, with oils and personal concerns - could say "be courageous when loving me," and another could say "dont be afraid of loving me." The main petition - names crossed, petition written in a circle around - would appear on the back of the persons picture, also in the bag.

PatrickT: Well, I suppose you could do that, but it seems like adding too much to me. The very fact that you have two petitions in there "dilutes" the single, solitary, petition of the mojo. How about just one that says, "Be courageous and not afraid when loving me." I would combine the two, at the least, or, more preferably, go with the one I felt the strongest towards. They are much too similar in purpose.

Good evening.

Say your site sells both a mojo bag and a spell kit that covers the same thing (be it love, money, luck, etc). Which would be best and/or the most powerful to purchase. Are mojo bags more powerful than spell kits or vice-versa? Would you recommend one over the other? If so, why? Thanks for your help!!

If you look carefully through the spell kits sold at Lucky Mojo, you will find that many actually contain mojo bags as well as bath salts, sachet powders, and sometimes even candles, with full instructions.

If you are gifted in magic, a well-designed spell kit with clear instructions will be plenty powerful for you. Otherwise, a mojo bag to which you only need add your written petition and your personal concerns might be a better choice.
Magic is an art, not a science -- it's hard to quantify these things.

Is it appropriate to add a petition to a Follow Me Boy Mojo? Or just the name paper? Any suggestions as to what to add? I wanted to be specific, not just "so-and-so follows me like a dog", but more of a love thing. I didn't know if it was *bad* to be very specific about what you want from your mojo, or it if should be more short and simple and let the bag do it's thing?

Thanks!

Hi,

I stopped talking to my ex about 3 weeks ago and I want to get her bck. She wont talk to me at all but I want to know the best way I can go about smoothing things out. I also have a problem, as I dont live alone so doing candle rituals is quite difficult as I dont have much privacy. So would a mojo bag or anything else be a good alternative to helping out my situation? I hve some of her hair that I took when we was talking and a piece of clothing she has wore that I could add to it? I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks

if a lodestone is used in a mojo hand, must it be opened every new/full moon to feed it with magnetic sand? :|

luckylodestone,

No, the Lodestone is fed as part of making the hand, but then the hand is fed thereafter with perfume, oil, whiskey, or such.

See earlier in this very thread where the handling of a lodestone on an altar is compared to its handling in a mojo bag.

Hi

I couldn't find an answer to this question in the forum, so hopefully I'm in the right place...

I have ordered some mojo bags and was wondering if they need to be 'activated' (not sure of the correct terminology!) immediately, or if I can store them safely for a few months+ until I am ready to use them?

Also, if customs open the bag, is it ok for them to handle the bag before I begin using it or, will their handling 'kill' my mojo??

Thanks for any help with this....I'm new to all this, so it's all a bit confusing :S

I don't remember if they come tied or not. If they do, they can be opened for personal concerns and petitions, then tied, and fed with oil.

I just peeked into the AIRR Pro Bono closet and found a Steady Work mojo bag kit, not personalized, ready for someone in need.

It's tied with a simple half-hitch, not much more than the string being wrapped around the neck of the bag. So: tied, so it doesn't spill -- but not "don't you dare open me up again" tied. So when you re-tie it, use a more substantial knot (not a granny knot, though). This is for the express purpose of putting your personal concerns in, according to the instructions provided in the kit.

Hope this helps,

Hello All,

I am interested in assembling a Mojo bag to help me draw and maintain a sense of feminine power. I don't necessarily mean power over the opposite sex, but rather a sense of centered confidence and connection to myself. I want this to be a particularly feminine bag rather than relying on masculine things like John the Conqueror root (which is traditionally carried by men, as I understand). Some of the things which come to mind which I have on hand are angelica powder, whole Angelica root, as well as dried Mugwort, Jasmine oil, almond oil, moon oil, mugwort oil, and egg shells. Does anyone have any advice on how to assemble such a bag. I am new to Hoodoo but eager to work with the tradition.
I have Cat's book for reference.

Many thanks.
Maddie

Sometimes nobody replies to my questions either - it stinks. :( I am new at this too, but my understanding is LM blesses the Mojo Bag when they make it, but you need to personalize it when it arrives (petition and personal concerns) and breathe life into it. Then you feed it. I would think anything that happened on it's adventures in the Postal System before it reached you would not count against you. Afterall, you will still personalize it arrives. I think Miss Cat gave an example somewhere like how a kitten is alive before you adopt it, but it becomes YOUR kitty when you take ownership and give it a name, feed it and bond with it. Hope this helps.

You'd be hard-pressed to do better than a Queen Elizabeth Root, to build the bag around. Angelica Root is an excellent choice, as would be Rosemary. Spend some time with the Green Book, and you can sort out a few ingredients that suit your intent.

Hi MoonBreath and missoaks,

although the wait can be long to have a question answered, do keep in mind that this is a free forum and there are only a handful of moderators available to answer a whole plethora of questions! We try and get at them quickly but sometimes they slip through the cracks.

MoonBreath: your answer to missoaks was on the money. so in short, yes you can store a mojo for a few months until you are ready to use it insolong as you haven't personalized or brought it to life yet. Until it is alive, a mojo can't be killed, thus again as mentionned by MoonBreath, no problems with customs. It would be a problem in the case of a jackball because that is already fixed for you with your concerns. It can also be a problem if you have a rootworker fix you a hand which they bring to life for you - it is alive when it is sent to you - thus in that case it could be killed by customs handling.

Many Blessings to you both,
Aura

I just bought a vintage tobacco flannel bag that really spoke to me for luck...it is about 5x9 which is about the size of several I've seen. How do I go about making a bag - folding and sewing would make it about 4.5 x 4.5 square, which still seems a bit bug in my mind for carrying. It's for me and I'm not a small woman, though. Any insights or suggestions? I certainly don't want to cut it. Thanks! Everyone have a blessed weekend.

I have used a very old tobacco sack to make a mojo but it was kept the original size, so it had to be worn around the neck and against the chest.

Thanks Joseph. I am of ample size and that won't be a problem. It's a beautiful flannel with many lucky signs on it, predominantly red and green...it just wants to be my gamblers hand, I think! I was really taken with it, more so than any others so far.

Based on recent travel, I just wanted to give a heads up that if you go through a body scanner, you must remove ALL non-clothing items. Not just keys, coins, belts, etc. if you have paper currency, a notebook, even a toothbrush or anything else that would NOT set off a regular metal detector, you must remove it for a body scan. You cannot have anything AT ALL in your pockets, on your person or in your clothing. So this is something to consider. So be prepared n advance. Some airports shunt passengers randomly. If you prepare for it, you won't be surprised and endanger your mojo.

I agree with whomever said bury it in your makeup or toiletry bag within your carryon. If you wish to check it, i would sink it into a shoe. absolutely get TSA Approved locks. In ten years I've only had my checked luggage searched twice, and they leave a nice letter in your Bag apologizing for the inconvenience.

I have worn mine in my bra tucked under my breast for the last two years flying out to California; however, due to recent problems, I have to agree with the above statement. My Mercury dimes and my anklet (which also has a mercury dime) stops me. I have gotten through every pat down.
This flight is going to be different. With the exception of my jewelry and dimes I am probably going to pack everything.
I will say this, I mark anything with "Spiritual Supplies" that is checked. I also write a prayer with each (small bag, box, holder) of my supplies that come with me everywhere.
Due to so much that is happening in the United States and the world, I am probably going to do things a little differently this year on next weeks trip.

Be Blessed!

That is cool to hear. I agree with you, my tobacco sack was amazing, very old, and not cheap, but I knew it was the one for my personal mojo bag. Best of luck to you.

Can you over feed your mojo bag? I like to pray with and bless it everyday or every other day.

I personally think that the more time you spend meditating with our mojo the stronger it gets plus it will know how to work for you. I tell my clients to begin working with their mojo by holding it in their hands and letting the energy of it run up through their hands. Then I tell them concentrate and picture their desire so that their mojo will know exactly what they want and will get to work on it. Too much oil, powder or whiskey could make it get all sticky or caked up so I say pick one day a month to feed it like the new moon or full moon and that should be good unless otherwise prescribed by your conjure worker.
Best of Blessings,

I feed my mojos with a wee little smear of oil once a week -- not even enough to leave the least little mark on the bag.

I didn't come up using oil on my bag. Praying your intent over it daily is fine. Smoking it and whiskey etc is fine. Like Flora said, especially when it's new, it's good to spend a lot of time with it. My only advice would be not to throw your doubts and fears, but instead your faith into your bag. (If that makes sense to you.)

It's something you might take out and state *positive* affirmations and prayers with if you're having a moment of doubt about your situation. Something you might pray holding at the start and/or end of your day, and or at any relevant moment that pops up. i.e. New openings for higher paying positions at your company, they're handing out pink slips, you saw a guy you've got a thing for, etc.

You wouldn't hold it saying (mentally or aloud) "I'm scared I won't get the promotion" you would hold it asking for the promotion, declaring it yours, etc. So, I don't think over feeding is a matter, but what you're feeding it.

Good luck!

The best advice for any Conjure Work.

Let your spirit guide your work, but also remember moderation.

This is a good example of why conjure and divination skills should go hand in hand. If you are not perceptive enough to be able to have a normal conversation with the spirit of the Toby, I suggest using a pendulum. The most important question being something like: "Do you have enough power right now to...[insert task]...?". If the answer is "yes", no need to feed it. If "no" then feed it and ask if that was enough to give it energy enough to perform the task given.

You are on target, workers have various methods in terms of dressing their mojo, but this is the first time I have heard or read feeding it everyday, of course talking to your toby daily is on target.

Hopefully I am using the words in the topic heading correctly.

I will soon be making my first mojo bag. One question I have regarding "feeding" or "dressing" the bag is how do you do this? Do I put all my items in the bag, secure it tightly, then rub the appropriate oil on the outside of the bag? If so, do I put a drop or two on my fingers and rub it onto the bag?

What is the proper/correct way?

THANKS!

Yes, that's the way I was taught. Some people like to smoke it in incense instead.

But whatever you do, DON'T do what I did before I started Miss Cat's course -- feed the mojo by opening it and dressing every individual curio with oil! No wonder it didn't work!

I hope someone has some insight to this: I made myself a beauty mojo bag on Sunday night, and since I don't sleep with a bra, I put it in the basket I keep all my herbs, oils, curios on, and just covered it with a bag so it wouldn't be seen. Now, I sleep in the living room, and my altar and stuff is just a few feet away from me under the stairs. That night, I woke up and saw this short fat shape "hop" from where my mojo bag was to the end of the couch I was sleeping on, look at me and hopped back. Weird, I know. But I remember smiling, because I assumed the beauty mojo bag is working and it was looking for me. But when I think about it, I really don't know now. Does/can the spirit in any mojo leave the bag in search of it's owner? Does/can it leave the mojo to bring us what we made the mojo bag for to begin with? Does any experienced root worker on here think this Shape was from my mojo bag or something else? It didn't scare me at all. In fact, the fat little shape seemed to be happy. Really hard to explain.

I have four mojo bags that i have had for about a year and one i think i had two years. The mojo bags are now soiled from annointing them so many times. I would like to know whether i should make or buy another cover for the mojo bags or should i open the mojo bag and put it in another bag or should i just bury these mojo bags and purchase more?

If the mojo bags were working well for you then yes, I would take the old ones apart, re-dedicate them with the same intent and put them in new, clean cloth bags. If you had someone else make them for you then you may contact them and ask how much it would be to re-make the bags using the same ingredients as your already working mojo bags.

If they have not been working for you then you may want to pursue purchasing new bags, or focusing on one, more important, hand.
