Well I can add this, one of the basics of "Wicca" is the Wiccan Pyramid it has 4 lines
To know
To will
To dare
to be Silent
To keep this short the premise on being silent is that talking about it not only can weaken it from your end, making you second think things, leach power from the spell etc, it can alert others to your workings and let them manipulate and or affect it in various ways, usually negative. The consensus is essentially that unless they are part of the working of a spell, they are not to know about it, till its done, if ever.
I generally don't tell people of potential good coming my way in part because of the crab mentality even my own family, which is just as fraught with jealousy as anything else it has. Sad but true.

Will hoodoo work if someone sees you?

Unread post by tokumbo78 » Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:21 am

Is it imperative that the work be done in complete secret, or can someone else be around and everything still be effective?

It depends on the work. If you're doing domination work on your partner, you don't want to leave Domination-type products lying around the house where he/she could see them, or he/she will know what you're up to.

If you're doing general healing, blessing or cleansing work, or working with saints or gods/goddesses, putting up an altar would be a great idea and how obvious it is depends on the type of people you live with.

I live by myself, so I can do work whenever I wish. However, if I want to influence my boss in some matter (just as an example), I make sure to wear Boss Fix oil as a scent on my body when I go into the office and wear it on my hands while I touch my boss' furniture or desk, while praying (under my breath) what my petition is.


Hope this helps,

Blessings,

Thank you both for your responses; they are helpful. However, I'd like to specifically know is secrecy imperative for effectiveness. Suppose you live with someone and they just happen to see things. You're not trying to hide anything but they can simply see what you're doing. Does the fact that others can see diminish the potency or effectiveness of the work?

When you live with others who are not of the same mind and thoughts, I would hide my work to keep their negative thoughts away from my spellwork. Specifically, I wouldn't want anyone touching my work space, with eyes, hands nor thoughts.

I wonder if your question is asked in relation to the many discussions on mojos being seen and killing them? for work I hide it too even if they are accepting. Personal reasons because to me work is personal and religious and its a private matter. I have a set up hidden away, if someone sees it i explain that its religious and that always seems to end the questions. Iv never had it be an issue of effecting the work. As for mojos im on the fence, iv had em accidently seen or touched and lived others killed. My own experience is love mojos seen bythe occupant will be effected by touch or feel more easily then money or protection..but thats my experience and I honestly cant say if thats a general rule or not. To be safe I try and keep it all hidden.

In my experience, you just have to be selective and intuitive about how much to share & with whom. I'll sometimes share with my mom or husband but usually after the fact. Even then I'm usually vague with details.

I do egg cleansings and reiki for my children but I've told them not to tell everyone about it because they might not understand. My kids are extremely talky and I'd rather them not tell the mailman & cashiers about it. :? :lol:

It's funny, now when one of them is grumpy or acting out, the oldest will often say "Wow, _____ really needs an egg!" :lol:

Is it okay to discuss spells afterward?

Unread post by Eleemi » Sat Jul 23, 2011 11:11 pm

Greetings everyone. :) I was wondering if someone could clear this up for me: Is it permissible to discuss spells after casting them? I realize they should be kept private for the most part, but I was wondering if it is okay to discuss the workings of a particular spell with someone you're close to. Here's the situation. There is a particular person that has harmed my entire family, so I mentioned to a relative that I would do some hexing/binding against this person "when the time is right". Well, after performing the spell, I discussed some details of it with a particular family member (who was also hurt by this individual).

Should I have talked about it, or just kept quiet? Does discussing a spell afterward negate its effects in any way, or not at all?

Thanks!

I would personally keep quiet unless the person was my rootworker and/or reader who was involved in the actual execution of the work. Speaking to others doesn't necessarily negate the work you did, but their energy, doubts, fear, etc. could possibly effect manifestation.

Do not discuss your work with anyone. If it works, great. If it doesn't, you'll look foolish. You do not need any negative energy from people to distract you; there are many people who are against any type of magic or spiritual work to change a situation.

I wouldn't even discuss it if you get positve results; it may not last.

Thank you both. That makes sense about how others' doubts, energies and fears and etc. could interfere with the manifestation. In the end, it really is all about energy and intent and I should have realized that conflicting energies and views could perhaps battle with my own. Fortunately, my family member has pretty much the same feelings, fears and intentions toward this person, so maybe that even amplified the spellwork. I'll definitely keep quiet next time though. :)

I keep my alter to myself. It is in a prominent place in my bedroom. When I have "visitors" over
that may move from room to room - it is hidden. When they leave I replace it. Does this have any effect
on the strength of the alter?

I personally agree. People dont understand how important it is to keep quiet unless its a professional and/or reader helping you. Now if you are working with a fellow friend who is a practitioner, or on the behalf of someone then that is okay. But other than that... SHHHHH.

In this case, it can go both ways, but I think it would be best to just keep quiet because you really don't know their stance on hoodoo, and sometimes they might over think it, obsess and so on.

No.

Some people are able to keep their altars up constantly. Others are only able to put up temporary altars. When I had to do this, I would just re-cleanse my space or whereever I move it to, and put the things back on my altar.

You're absolutely right. I just felt so much more at peace after performing the binding that I talked about it without really thinking things through. Fortunately, the person I discussed it with it was like-minded and felt protected afterward too, but I will know to keep quiet next time. Also, it just seems much more respectful to keep quiet after doing such work.

Thanks for all the feedback! :-)

Must we keep our rootwork and spell casting secret?

Unread post by MsP » Sat Sep 17, 2011 7:18 am

Hello everyone,
I am wondering is it ok to talk about what you want or need while doing spellwork. Now no one knows i practice hoodoo. But i notice things take longer to manifest or dont manifest at all when im anxious and keep complaining about what i want and need. So to sum it up is it best if i just keep completely quiet about things and let the magic work?
Thank you in advance

Yes, staying quiet about the things you're working for, and trying to keep a positive and faithful mind-set about your petition is an important part of the work. Your complaints or worries only show doubt in your work, and you basically end up working against yourself. Also by talking about the things you need with others, they will have their own reactions to that, some of which may not be positive, and that too will only work against your petition.

So keep it close to your chest, and keep a positive attitude and faith that the Divine will provide for you what you've asked for.

Amen!

But for lifelong pessimists, that's a huge struggle that can generate its own waves of anxiety and doubt. You can even start agonizing about whether you're being positive enough! Auuugh!

The old aphorism is to "Set it and forget it." If you haven't yet experienced the quiet, easy confidence of the successful veteran rootworker, a casual detachment, even a light-hearted, low-key skepticism -- a "yeah, whatever" attitude, are better than anxiety and distrust in your work. At least take the pressure off the work and off yourself.

And while you are at your workbench or altar, do the best work you can, of course.

Hope this helps,

If you do it right, you can feel the result. Your faith becomes knowing. Then thoughts, talk or doubts will vanish. it might take a bit of practice and experience but it will come. Until then, build a habit of never letting any thoughts or emotions about the work leave the altar, or crossroads, or running water and so on.

This is usually a sign that there is something else interferring with the work. It can a protective thing; A helpful spirit sees that you have not thought this through properly or have something better in store for you and thus hinders the work. Or the target is protected and this causes interference. While you are waiting for the new shipment you take some time to think this through. What will be the consequenses? Have I missed something here? If so, what could it be? and so on...
Best of luck to you.

If you are living with your parents or in someone else's house, then you may have an issue with someone who thinks rootwork is dangerous, evil or wrong. Law Keep Away may help, but you may just need to cut to the chase and have a professional do the work you do not have privacy to do. You could continue with baths, talismans, mojo bags and the like - bath crystals can be repackaged, talismans can be explained away as "just jewelry," mojo bags should probably always be in your pocket anyhow -- such things can be concealed pretty easily.

Hope this helps,

I advise anyone who cannot do work without harassment to move out ASAP. You have the right to your own spiritual practices.

However, there is a great tradition of "sneaky tricks" that you can employ in the meantime. Burn 4" or 6" candles instead of vigils when the interfering people are not home. Keep your supplies in a safe place. I recommend a plastic bin in a closet under some blankets or clothing or under your bed. You can also place it in the trunk of your car, although it may get jostled a bit. Use powders and oils on your body or where your target will touch them.

Hi luckyboy:

One traditional way to keep others from "seeing" your spell work is to put a Bay leaf in each of the 4 corners of the room in which you're working the spell, like where you have your candle altar.

You can get Bay leaves here:

This happened to me in the past where my mothers husband (not my father) went looking for my magical supplies (my mothers too) and destroyed them (mine not her's).

It was due to me "outing" my family's magical practices. My mother had done work to cause him to grow his hair again (he was bald). In a heated argument (I was a teenager and vastly less mature than I believed myself to be) while he was screaming about "the witchcraft devil shit!" (pardon my quote) I screamed "how the hell do you think you got your hair back?!" (my mother was not pleased with me) he asked god right there (because he believed his hair came back after all these years from doing some work on his pastors lawn) that if witchcraft is what brought his hair back he wants it all to fall back out. within a day and a half he was bald again. so for years he would secretly steal, throw away, etc my supplies, until I put a protection spell on them.

my mother in a fit of anger, when he had grabbed her tarot cards told him that he can break every wand, stone, and powder, because none of it mattered, and she threw her cards in the fire place, telling him that he can destroy everything and she will still be a witch because it that witch who makes the tools not the tools who make the witch. oils and charms can be remade.

keep strong to who you are and do some protection work.

You could also just come right out and say "don't touch my things" and curse them hard if they do.

I may have a buddah or a crystal hanging around by accident and I get questioned about it and its embarrassing as an adult having to be questioned about such a minor thing. How can I be me with no watchers or just respected for me and not keep on trying to catch me out. Also how can I become more secretive so I don't give anything away etc.

Well, the physical-world solution to this is to simply get into the habit of putting your things away. Find a cupboard no one but you looks in, store the positive products in your clothing drawer, wrapped. Buy a little tin lunch box, or wooden box. Buy a little safe and hide it under your bed. :) King Solomon Wisdom products can help you be more mindful of this, and help you in figuring out storage solutions.

There's also a soap geared against gossiping: http://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatsoaps.html
And what about peaceful home? This could take away some of the stress, both from the questioner to the questioned.

I am organised I just like the look of buddah on display not for anything spiritual I just like the happy face and the crystals I just like the look of them but some will question and its annoying when its your own home and you deliberatily got your own home so you could have your own freedom to express myself but I guess I need to be more careful in future and I will its so hard to be secretive with bias people I just need to be much more discreet.

Hm, well in that case I would get some products to help you be calm and cool about it, and give you more confidence. If it's just a cute Buddha on display I 1) don't see why people would question you about it (how odd of them, really) and 2) don't see why you should continue to stress about them questioning it. You know why you have it around, and it's not doing any harm (quite the opposite, right?) so they can stick their opinion elsewhere. :) Stop Gossip for sure!

For you, Crucible of Courage, you could also add Power in there, for additional personal resolve. There's also Cast Off Evil "...to rid one of bad habits, wicked influences, and evil companions" if this person/these people are of the malicious sort.


At one point in time an ex-boss of mine was getting a little too verbally frisky with me, and I was just plain exhausted from the week. I had no mind to go through any inappropriateness the following day, so I took a blank piece of paper, wrote his name out nine times, rotated it counter-clockwise and crossed it with something like, "Shut your mouth, do not give me your s---!" nine times while thinking of his lewd remarks and how they made me feel, and how I did not wish to feel them again. I then put Commanding sachet powder in the center and folded the paper away from me, again rotating counter clockwise with each fold. When I was done I stuck it in my shoe so I could walk on it and keep it active. Since I knew it was going in my shoe from the get-go, I took care that I didn't fold it too much, or else it would be a discomfort on my end- I kept it flat.

I only used it for the day, and what a peaceful day it was! :D

You can adapt something similar for your situation.

That sound's good I might try that. maybe with stop gossip powder or some other commanding powder. Power oil sounds good I wonder how I can incorporate that maybe in a protection mojo bag or power mojo bag? I shouldn't of called anyone bias I take that back.

Burn Candles in Secret

Unread post by viennayeung » Fri Feb 03, 2012 4:12 pm

Hi All. I tried to search this topic in this forum, but cannot find something close.

I bought a honey jar spell kit and extra candles. I know burning candles is supposed to be done in secret. But what if someone sees me burn candles, will it bring any bad effects? My house is so small and my husband is always around. He knows that I use spell kits sometimes but he never touches any of my stuff. The only problem is most of the time he'll be able to see when I burn candles.

I know for mojo bags, as long as people don't touch them, that's fine. Seeing is fine. But how about burning candles?

Thanks for help!

Negative vibrations is what I call them...as long as your husband is fine and doesn't bother your spellwork you are a step above.

Burning candles aren't always done in secret. Heck, ever walk into a candle shop? Some of them burn candles right out in their front window!

In your case, as long as your husband isn't tampering with things, you should be fine.

Must we keep our rootwork and spell casting secret?

Unread post by lbcamera » Sat Feb 11, 2012 5:00 am

Probably a silly question but when you are doing a cleansing for yourself or any sort of rootwork do you need to keep this a secret from everyone or can you share the experience with some close friends and family members?

Well, I have no need to hide my work, and I'm often doing work on behalf of other people which can be seen. I don't discuss details about ongoing work, but if my husband sees candles or bottles or other things as they are working, it's no big deal. And I always let him know when I am doing a cleansing, so that he can participate.

I was raised in the practice that your rootwork and anything activity related to soul work should be treated at private information. Not secret but private and you only discuss it amongst people in your immediate circle. If you talk about it too much then you unravel the working and let loose the power of it working well. There is my two cents

Hey, i grew up in a community where people spoke about the theory and practice of rootwork openly and pretty much daily.

Girls and women especially shared (with plenty of giggles) what exactly they were using on their men.

The conversation at the candle shops was never conducted in hushed whispers at all -- people would volunteer ideas to you and tell you your business if they felt they had the answers you needed to hear.

Now, i am sure that these same folks kept SOME of their business hid -- especially enemy work or bad work of an underhanded nature. But they would still share *ideas* with you, even on killing spells.

So, i guess it really depends on your culture. African American culture is fairly open about hoodoo and rootwork in MOST areas of the country, with the notable exception of North Carolina, where it is very much on the down-low.

If rootwork were always kept secret, we would not have so many dang songs about it recorded -- and there are hundreds of these songs, dating from the earliest recording by Black musicians to the present.

See my web site "Blues Lyrics and Hoodoo" for plenty of examples, many with audible mp3 files attached:

http://luckymojo.com/blues.html

And, as an example, enjoy this little reference, which tells a true story:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxzjQ_JrxMk

Then read the entire story in context here, including the actual name of the "hoodoo woman" in the song!

http://www.southern-spirits.com/morton- ... leans.html

So, as you can see, the fact that Aaron Harris had a rootworker -- and her name, and the type of work she did for him -- was well known in New Orleans at the time, and has come down to us, open, not secret, and openly revealed, through the voice of Jelly Roll Morton!

That's interesting, Miss Cat. I wonder what makes the culture of North Carolina historically distinct?

I don't tell anyone what I'm doing. Of course, that doesn't prevent me from giving general advice. For example, I wouldn't say "I'm doing a Stop Gossip spell to shut someone up," but would say "To shut someone up, use Stop Gossip."

I talk to my husband or my daughters about what I'm doing-clears my head, gives me a perspective. They are pretty wise for their years so their advice is pretty spot on. We all work together in this house. Typically what I do is centered around keeping the homeplace place running, money coming in, health and happiness, etc. So we all have opinions on that, here! :lol:
On occasion, I will keep myself to myself if I feel I should, though.

Interesting... I'd not heard of conjure being hush-hush in NC before. People seem rather open about it in my neck of the woods. There was even an enormous billboard on HWY 11 between Kinston and Grifton promoting Enam's Spiritual Shop in Grifton (until Hurricane Irene blew the sign down). The billboard featured Mr. Jones in his best suit and declared "The Largest Spiritual Store on the East Coast"-- I doubt that claim, but it is a large store. At least here in Eastern NC I've not experienced any sort of secrecy about conjure.

You know that's an interesting point, cat. I didn't recall much secrecy when I ment people from NC, but now that you mention it in hindsight they *were* more reluctant to share and talk than other people in the country. In fact, there seemed to be more hang ups on what this stuff was called. Calling it conjure or hoodoo seemed to have negative connotations. More of the people I talked to called it "prayer work" or "praying on someone" with some calling it "roots." Interesting!

Personally I have just told certain close friends that I am cleansing my spiritual self and blessing my home. These seem to be universal beliefs in many cultures so it's no big deal.

If I am doing a job on someone or have someone else doing a job that I do not reveal to anyone just in case it should get to the ears of the target somehow.Unfortunately life has taught me that very few people can be trusted and I have been disappointed by many in the past so for me it's best to just keep certain things to myself.

My best to all and thank you for your responses and thoughts

I think you go with your comfort level. For some things that you do in life (not just in hoodoo) you tell only your close friends, other things you tell anyone. Let your inner guidance be your "meter" as to what you should and shouldn't reveal.

Hot Foot & Mental Anguish; I need to Hide My Work; How?

Unread post by Faith14 » Fri Mar 23, 2012 8:02 am

So I pulled some cards this morning on hotfooting someone. It came out that I should be attacking her mentally/emotionally. I need to hide my work I know bay leaves are good for this. I need to weaken her too. SO...help me with a plan please.

Off hand I have LM herbs- Barberry, knotweed, calamus, alum, licorice, poppy seeds, black mustard seeds, sulphur. I have LM oils- confusion, inflammatory confusion, essense bend ova, hot foot.

I was thinking restless oil? I have absolutely no experience with restless oil so if someone experienced with working this oil could chime in I would appreciate it. I was going to order some red ants...oh and I have devils dung...

Should I work a freezer jar with knotweed, alum, poppy seeds, calamus, licorice, barberry? Then do a skull candle or doll baby to influence her mind?

I know I defiently need to cover my tracks / hide my work from her. her emotions are her weak point...so I need to weaken her, make her vulnerable and completly destroy her mentally and emotionally...
