Hello from Georgia!

Unread post by frennell » Mon Oct 12, 2020 10:04 am

Hi all,

Very excited to be here. I guess the most relevant thing I can say as I start a journey into Hoodoo is that I am half-Black (grew up in Georgia) and half Norwegian/Scottish. I have always from a young age felt a very strong intuition and sensitivity to spirits and always felt pulled towards practicing magic.

But I grew up only with the white side of my family, and even though from 10-13 I would BEG my mom to let me go to the esoteric bookstore, she always told me it was a phase and would never take me (I'm old enough that forums like this did not exist back then! and they didn't really have grimoires at the library) . Anyway, I pushed it aside for years and over the last few years have begun to explore divination and magical traditions. I have never been interested in wicca, I have done some work with Norse runes (as that's a large part of our heritage) and a few other things, but it has always felt like it didn't "click." Like there was some other form of magical work I hadn't found yet that would be right for me.

This is a long post, sorry! But I feel a little emotional, because even starting to look through forums and a couple hoodoo books, something feels more "right" to me. It feels like what I've been looking for, and like it really resonates with me, it feels that my ancestors are guiding me.

That said, I am really eager to learn. And hopefully connect with my ancestors more through this practice.

Hello frennell,

Welcome to the Lucky Mojo forum! We're happy to have you here.

What a fabulous family history you have! I'm sure you're excited to explore hoodoo and tap into the energies you have felt since childhood. You're on an incredible journey, and I wish you the very best with it.

I am posting links to the most popular threads and some forum rules for you to look over. We look forward to seeing you on the forum. If you ever have any questions, we are always here for you.

These are links to general information on Hoodoo to give you a jumping off point:

Hoodoo History:

Mojo Hands:

Oils:

Powders:

Incense:

Candles:

Herbs:

Conditions and how we can address them:

Here is some info on how the forums are set up. It is divided into four major 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 five 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 post illegal copies of material from other web sites or from books.

3) 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.

4) Please do not start new topics; we have thousands of topic-threads already in place.

5) Please do not quote people by using the copy-paste function; it wastes space.
