Petition Papers and Name Papers Questions and Answers

Unread postby sephirah » Wed Feb 04, 2009 5:31 am

My question is regarding the re-use of writing tools and inscribing tools for peition papers and inscribing or dressing candles.

I use an old fat black bridge pencil to write my petitions. I do not wipe it down between work which would seem appropriate to do along with the other nondisposable "re-useable" tools (i.e. candle holders, knitting needles, screwdrivers etc. which would have residue on them).

A coffin nail to carve a candle would have that candle's residue on it. Would I want to use a nail used on a previous black candle to carve a red love candle? Or is it just a neutral writing tool, like a pencil, that carries no intent with it from spell to spell?

Standing by with salt and sage,

Hello Marion,

This may vary from practitioner to practitioner. Some might feel it is important to have clean tools for each new work, while some keep them as they are thinking each work will add strenght to the tool and some does not even think that such things are of importance at all for the effect of the spell.

Some may say it is important to pray over a new tool, to bless it and then cleanse it between each job (without thinking that the original blessing is washed off in any way, but remains with the tool).

Personally I cleanse my nails with a dry cloth or running water or a dash of ammonia.

Don´t use cold water or incense etc if you are using a coffin nail because this may cut off the spirit attached to it.

Use a dry cloth to wipe it off and a dash of whiskey to keep the spirit strong, between each work. Its also a good idea to take them out to the graveyard and leave them stuck in the ground there over night to recharge them once a year or so (Depending on how much work you do with them).

I advise you to decide for yourself which will feel most sincere and "right" for you, and stick to it.

Hello Marion,

I also reuse a lot of my tools, including those I write with. I just wipe them down with Florida Water before each one.

When writing petitions, i often use what comes to hand, but i prefer one type of pen (a Pilot Razor Point, formerly a Niji Stylist) and i use that in preference to others. If i cannot grab one to hand, i next prefer a pencil. I will always choose a Pilot Razor Point or a pencil over a ballpoint pen. There is no "meaning" or "tradition" to this. It's just my preference. I do not clean or otherwise fuss over my writing tool between petitions.

As i mentioned in a reply on candle dressing, i have used the same tool for dressing candles for decades. It is an old, wood-handled iron screwdriver. I wash it down with Hoyt's cologne. I have also cleansed it with my own spit and oiled the wooden portion repeatedly with Van Van Oil. Over the years it has required some repair and tightening up of the ferrule that protects the wood-metal juncture. It is my pleasure and duty to keep this tool always polished, clean, dry, and in servicable condition.

I use a little vintage pocket knife given to me by my uncle to inscribe and dress candles. He gives me a knife every year for Christmas and one year he gave me a small one that is antler handled and fits in my hand perfectly. Before that I had used whatever came to hand, but once I got my knife I found that I had a strong preference for it. I keep it anointed with Holy Oil. I fiddle with candles when they aren't going the way I want them to, but like miss cat said, if I do that then I admit to myself that I can't get a good read off of them.

Every single reply post is right on the mark and exactly the insight I was looking for. I am much more at peace with the subject and recognize the importance of these tools as being a sacred extention of my skills and intent, worthy of reverence, and rightfully deserve a special storage place of their own between implimentation. That place will now be in a box on my ancestor atlar, among those I call upon for guidance. I particularly like the idea of recharging coffon nails in a grave of someone either familiar with the practice or a family member whose allegiance to their descendants is unquestionable. Thank you Johannes for that.

Because I am still not comfortable with burning candle intervention, I may experiment with "grooming" the free standing candle before it actually becomes an official "work in progress", perhaps more bullet or pencil shaping the wick end to eliminate the well perimeter which puddles the liquid wax. It may be considered tampering nonetheless, but given enough time I might be able to come up with an hypothesis.

Sure you can. I prefer something like an awl because it's a bit more substantial than a pin, but still pointed. I have used a knife when that was all that I had on hand, but the height of the blade makes it harder to control. (Height as in sharp edge to opposite edge)

I often use clean, shiny nails for inscribing candles for positive work. Needles (especially in the larger gauges) are also a good option. Fine razor-edged tools (ie: X-acto knives) can also be used, although those begin to have some of the same problems as standard knives on smaller candles.

Name Paper question

Unread postby chatocamacho » Wed Mar 04, 2009 9:53 am

Hi, I was reading the book that catherine yronwode wrote, which by the way I love. I had a quck question for her or for anyone who can help me with this. In the spell it says:

"Write your name and his name in pieces of paper, pin the papers face to face and put them into a pint jar of water with a spoonful of sugar or honey and a handful of orange flowers. Close the jar and sorround it with five red candles dressed with attraction oil. Burn all the candles at once calling the man's name aloud as you light each one. Let the jar sit for five days, then take the name papers out, bury them in your back yard, and dress the spot with the left-over sweet water and your own urine."

My question is, what spot is she referring to?

Sugar Paper for Sweetner Spells

Unread postby carolina_dean » Fri Mar 06, 2009 8:45 pm

I'm originally from the South (South Carolina) and I LOVE my sweet tea. Every time I open a new bag of sugar I save the bag. These sugar bags are actually two bags, an outer bag and an inner bag. The outer bag has the brand name, UPC, etc...on it; but the inner bag is just a simple brown paper sack. I remove the inner bag from the outer bag, discard the outer bag and flatten it out for use later.

Whenever I do any type of sweetner spell, such as a honey jar, or love spell this is the paper I use to write my petitions on. I even hand drew one of the pentacles of venus on this paper and had great success with it as a talisman. I figure the paper's close proximity with the sugar gives it a little extra ooomph!

Thank you so much for this idea, carolina dean. So few merchants around me use brown paper bags any more that it's not easy to come by. The inner bag of the sugar is lighter weight paper than kraft paper or a grocery sack too. (I use a lot of sugar for sweet tea, myself. ;-) )

On a related note, I am curious to know why paper from a brown paper bag is most often used as a substitute for the traditional parchment paper for petitions and such in the hoodoo practice. I think I read somewhere on the Lucky Mojo site that practitioners would sometimes use paper that would match the skin tone of those involved in their conjuring (relating to the honey jar spells). Does this tradition stem from that same idea? Being that hoodoo evolved from the African-American communities it stands to reason they would use a readily available and relatively cheap source of paper that matches the skin tone of the majority of the clientele/practitioners. Or is there another reason that I'm not aware of? My curious anthropologist mind wants to know... ;)

My amateur anthropologist analysis sees it this way:

True parchment is created from calf skins and a rather involved process goes into making it, thus it's rather expensive.

Brown paper, such as would have been used to wrap goods bought from a drygoods store would have been readily available as a source of paper to slaves and servants (such as may have wrapped a processed sugar cone or other rations provided) unlike white writing paper which would not have been considered a necessary item. Just as the Southern style red flannel mojo back most likely came about because scraps from making underwear from the allotted red flannel were readily available (in addition to the red associations with the African religions). Miss cat talks about that somewhere here in this wonderful site.

Funny you should word it as brown paper as a substitute for parchment when the wikipedia article says that parchment was developed as substitute to papyrus (a tan "paper"). So perhaps the tradition of paper for spell work is actually much older.

That completely depends for me on the type of work, the feel of the work and the type of candle magic. I can't go into full details, but can give you some examples of when I do burn the papers or pictures.

In a cut and clear, I will burn the picture of the person my client is wishing to rid themselves of.
In court case work, I have burned copies of the legal papers as part of the work.
In crossing work, I have burned the person's picture.
In blessing work, I have burned the petitions when I felt moved to.

Yes there is a tradition for both when to tear the edges and when to cut the edges.

Edges are torn in blessing, wishing, love and other drawing work. The purposes of tearing the paper is so that it is "so pure that the angels could read it or write on it".

Cut edges are used in cursing, break up and hot foot work, traditionally on a three sided peice of paper (triangle) to make the points sharp, continuing on the theme of pins, needles and nails.

From another thread...

Sharona wroteWhen I write my petition on paper to put it under my Pyschic Vision candle what are the items to write with -- anything specific? I am doing the spell kit, but I also as everyone knows by now probably burning a 7 day glass Pyschic Vision dressed candle from LM (they also burnt one at Missionary Independent Spiritual Church). I am putting my own things under the candle and burning it by a statue of St. Francis. Thanks

There are a few ways to do this.

I was taught to write with a red pen or a pencil without an eraser, when you want something. Those small pencils in libraries work wonders.

When you are trying to curse someone, do revenge, or get rid of someone, or thing, you use a black pen.

Hope that helps,

How to Handle Petition Papers with Candles

Unread postby Clarabella » Mon Mar 16, 2009 6:39 am

Well, I've learned to (mostly) control my embarrassment at asking for answers that may be obvious to everyone but myself. Thanking you ahead of time for your patience. This relates somewhat to another discussion about burning petition papers, and the answer to my question may have been implied but I'd like to know for sure.

In my reading of everything hoodoo-related on the web, I know I've come across people stating that their petition papers caught on fire. I was kind of taken aback, because I assumed this could only happen if the paper was actually inside the container that held the candle, and underneath the candle itself. This made me wonder if I'd made a stupid error all along in assuming that "under the candle" meant under the container the candle was in. I'd always, thus far, burnt my candles atop an overturned saucer or metal dish, with the petition paper under the saucer. Is this the correct way to burn the candle atop the petition, or have I been making a mistake?

HI Clarabella,

The way that you describe placing your petition paper sounds just fine to me. Some people do burn candles right on top of petition papers or photographs and depending on the work that you are doing that can be very effective. I have done that, I have also placed petition papers/photos under the candle holder that I am burning my candle in, similar to what you describe- either way is fine. Some people will also load their petition paper or photo into the bottom of the candle a long with roots, herbs, and personal concerns. If you are using vigil lights you can place petition papers underneath them or tape them to the sides.

take care,

Are there any guidelines to indicate how you would decide which kind of work would be better off with the paper in with the candle, as opposed to underneath? Or do you just let your intuition guide you? In practical terms, because lights are sometimes burning when I'm not here, I'm also concerned with a paper catching fire and flaming up, possibly setting off the smoke alarm and bringing other unwanted aftereffects. :)

I never put my petition paper in the candle. I'm just so paranoid about things catching fire. It has happened to me before, and I don't want to cause any possible problems. Recently I've started writing directly on the jar candle with a sharpie. I don't know if that's proper and I know sharpies aren't exactly traditional. If the candle is a votive or figural or something I just put the paper under the candle holder.

If it is a glass enclosed vigil candle, the paper is taped to the bottom. If the vigil candle is ongoing, the paper gets taped under each candle. I have papers that are over 20 years old, because I started the vigil candles in high school!

If it is a free standing candle, the paper can be put under it. Usually the paper does not catch fire, but gets covered in wax and gets a proper burial.

I hope that answers a few questions.

I have been known to peel the green felt bottoms off of brass candlesticks, tape petitions in the deep hollow space underneath, re-glue the green felt on the bottom and leave the petitions there for years.

Also, i have seen petitions that were taped to the OUTSIDE of a glass vigil light or novena candle char, smoke, and sizzle a bit; and ditto for the paper labels on such candles.

Always respect the power of fire.

When using paper bag paper -- which is more traditional in hoodoo than the use of parchment or parchment-like paper -- one side (the edge of the bag) will be machine cut, so all four sides are torn to make them equally "pure" -- free of the machine edge. Tearing in straight lines is a conscious, careful act and focusses the mind.

Cutting with metal scissors, a knife, or pinking shears evokes forms of warlike separation and banishment.

Another custom is, when you seek to dominate a lover And here's another avriation: and make them love you, write their name several times (3, 7, or 9 times) with black ink, then cross and cover that with your name or your command "Love Me") written the same number of times in red ink, so they will "look up and see love."

And here's another variation: To get someone out of your life, write their name 3, 7, or 9 times in pencil, then cross over it the same number of times with your command in black ink, such as "Leave Town!" and then ERASE their pencilled names.

People also have asked me "which version" of a name to use, especially in the case of a married woman.

In the case of a married woman:
The full birth name is: first-name, middle-name, maiden-surname.
The full current legal name is: first-name, middle-name, married-surname.
The cumulative full name is: first-name, middle-name, maiden-surname, married-surname.

Burning namepapers or petitions is akin to banishment Hoodoo. However, in other traditions burning petitions may be so the smoke "sends the message to the Heavens." For example, the Chinese burn paper money as offering to their Gods.

I would word it "I banish whoever, or whatever comes between me and (name of target)." That covers anyone who gets in the way.

Burning or scattering joss paper is common in Chinese Taoism, but not Buddhism. Depending on the area, as well, (China's rather large) joss may be offered to one's ancestors, local deities, major deities, or a combination of these. "Hell" Bank Notes are just a more modern form of offering. In addition to cash, many items are offered made of joss that families may give to their ancestors. Although some in China's Department of Civil Affairs have spoken out against such items, it is still possible to find made from joss MP3 players, cars, planes, and other modern symbols of wealth and well-being. It will be interesting to see how that plays out politically.

Anyway, to bring this discussion back around, the burning of joss paper and the burning of name papers have no relation to one another except for the process of combustion. They developed separately and are used for different reasons.

With the glass candles, I usually burn the candle with the paper underneath. Then when the candle burns out, I put the paper inside and fill the whole thing with boiling water to melt away any wax residue, then I take it to my yard or the crossroads (whatever seems best for the type of spell) and pour out the water, dissolved wax/herb remains, and the soggy paper there.

Cat is right, this happens somewhat regularly at the Missionary Independent Spiritual Church (http://www.missionary-independent.org/). For this reason it is a good idea to keep a careful watch of how the candle is progressing regardless of where the petition is placed. Also, what happens to the petition during the burn can be very significant in reading the outcome of your burn.

Hi,
I had 2 vigil candles that just went out on Friday. They were Attraction & Lucky Buddah. They burned clean and clear no wax left over. I took my petition and burned them was that ok?

Thanks,

Burning petition papers that you are not going to re-use is a pretty standard form of disposal.

take care,
