Social Media and Hoodoo

Unread post by The_2 » Sat Jun 20, 2009 10:26 am

I put it in this subforum because I guess this covers a current social trend.

How do you deal with hoodoo magic when there's an increased that your photo or a friend's photo of you will end up online? There's so many social networking and photo sharing sites these days. Isn't it all a huge risk? I know it makes me quite paranoid. I'm trying not to be so wary of putting my picture online though.

How do you guys deal with it?

You deal with it. If your keeping up your protection work, and everyone should, then you'll probably be fine.

By keeping up the protection work do you mean a protection vigil candle or something else? I mean how can we make it an ongoing process? I also have faced the same issue and so I never share my pics with anyone...

Most of it is keeping your self and home clean and protected. I won't go into home protection here. You can read more about it in this thread: home-pretection-t1217.html and on this page: http://www.luckymojo.com/protectionspells.html

Some folks just don't put up their pictures. Other folks will put up pictures that are out of focus, fuzzy, or blurry, or where part of their face is hidden, so that the image that someone working on them has to work with is incomplete or fuzzy and ill-defined.
Most importantly as Hail Discordia said, is to keep yourself clean and protected.

good luck,

Thank you Miss Bri & HailDiscordia. The mentioned link has a lot of info, also I wasn't aware that if the fuzzy photo may be a weaker link to the person...

Really if you worry about leaving a trace of yourself everywhere all you accomplish is driving your self crazy, your voice on tape can be used too ya know. All you can do is have faith in your work.

Avoid the whole online photo-sharing rigamarol all together. Keep it oldschool with the forums.

I put up pictures all the time -- but they are "prepared" pictures. They may contain an embedded protection spell or sigil, for instance.

I also keep protection around my shop, church, and home.

That's odd to say, as it's easy to protect yourself if you believe someone will print your picture out and do work on you.

Everyone serious in Hoodoo work has protection up all the time for them.

I am adept at the digital trends, here are a few approaches that I see potentially averting disaster and keeping you in the clear. Some of these work well in the mundane too.

• (Sigil Magick) Adding protection sigils to your photos with apps either overt or with steganography. (Used this while in military service works well-hiding things in plain sight.)

• (Ceremonial Magick) Cast a circle, circumambulate 3 times clockwise starting in the east of circle, step back to center, call upon the spirits of your ancestors, however, you may say it with authority and be mindful of respect, present statement/purpose of intent for summoning, present statement of intent, paperwork, or will etc while walking around the circle expressing to ancestors as if to show them holding it up and that their assistance would be of great importance to carry along the good name of your family as a living representative. Make sure to give an offering as a pledge or payment for their services, never promise and not deliver offerings. Ancestors have a vested interest in you doing well and would assist graciously so its best to offer them something awesome for the protections A steak dinner with wine on the altar is not off-limits..they are your family after all! Make sure to thank them for attending your magickal operation and thank them for giving you life. Finally, dismiss them and go forward to complete the task that you need assistance with. You can either pay it forward or pay afterward once the request has been completed.

I like to pay it forward, just out of gratitude that I know they got me covered and just to be honorable on my word.

• (Ceremonial Magick) Commission a servitor/thoughtform entity and give it the specific directives to protect/ward off anyone that uses any photo of you past or present, with ill intent.

I know the above is not Hoodoo but it's a great operation to enlist the support of ancestors, especially in preserving the family lineage and namesake.
