Hello from Oswego, IL

Unread post by brentspy » Tue Nov 18, 2014 11:11 am

Greetings,

Well, where to begin?!? I started down a magical path after graduating bible college 16 years ago. I was all geared up to go into the ministry, but it seemed like every door or window of opportunity was being shut for me. Plans that were made fell apart and then my faith was being shook because I started to see some discrepancies in the bible. I went through a really dark time of trying to reconcile my beliefs and put my life back together. During this dark time I started to read books on the occult and other religions, but never took it any farther than reading.

In 2009/10 I started to get really serious about my occult studies and decided to join The Order of The Golden Dawn in the Chicago area. I was a member of the group for about 2 years and went through all of the outer order grades during that time. I ended up leaving because the group had split and I didn't feel the magical current was as strong as it had been.

Leaving led me down the path to discover hoodoo. One day I was meditating on a Psalm and started to look for some resources about how to incorporate it into my magical workings. My search led me to this website and am I glad. The Lucky Mojo website is a huge blessing and I am looking forward to meeting others, learning, and contributing.

Hi brentspy and thank you for sharing the summary of your path with us. Welcome to the Forum and to the study of hoodoo.

Although you're probably aware, hese are links to general information on Hoodoo within the site. There are also some Forum rules further down below that it's worth taking the time to become familiar with.

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 about religions to which you may have previously been an adherent or comments in which you seek to falsely conflate any religion with the practice of evil sorcery.
