Hello, ALW,

The content of the CD consists of two parts -- 26 audio tracks of blues music in which mention is made of hoodoo, which is the portion that relates to the course, plus a collection of graphic images suitable for printing out your own candle labels, seals, and decorative petition papers. For that you will also need a printer, but the graphics are not essential to the content of the course.

I have no plans to create digital file sharing for the course. Too many people take that as a license to illegally share or even sell copies of my hard work, or, in this case, the hard wrk of the great team that assembled this beautiful package of hoodoo history and practical spell-assistance.

Thank you, Cat. I suspected that may have been the reason for it, but wanted to be certain so I didn't spend money on an external drive if I could've just waited for another format to become available.

Thankfully, I do own a printer and have reviewed the contents of the CD set. I am especially looking forward to viewing those files. Right now I use a roll of brown postal paper that I've cut lengthwise into a series of smaller rolls for writing petitions and have no experience with seals.

That's wonderful!!!

You will LOVE talking with Miss cat. She is so nice and understanding. She knows that we are nervous and knows how to calm us down. By the time she gets done talking to you, it will feel as if you have known her your whole life.

Take care

I am getting very close to having all my required items to be eligible for the course. Order #3 was placed 7-31-16; so now I need to plan out the 4th order. (I've also ordered lots more than required, especially the oils, they're so handy to have on hand).

Do you think it would be a good idea to email or call the shop, and see if they had time to check my orders & see if my choices were correct, and what I actually have left to complete the list of items? I want to think I saw this mentioned in the past, but can't find the conversation now. And if so, who would I need to ask for?

I found that you will learn a LOT just trying to choose your items! So many decisions, so much scrolling back & forth LOL. Some really difficult decisions, because they're all so interesting. It's like going down the rabbit hole: I never know where I'll end up, & the next thing I know it's after midnight. Again. :shock:

Wising you the best with the course. You will LOVE it!!

I feel incredibly stupid and apologize in advance for not knowing where to post this, but for the past few months I've wanted to sign up for the course but haven't been able to figure out how to do a checkout. I've sent an agreement to the terms several orders ago...may have gotten overlooked. If someone wouldn't mind pm-ing me or e-mailing me what it is EXACTLY I need to do in order to get in touch with Miss Cat and have you guys see that I've made all the required purchases, I'd really like to get started. Thank you and I'm so sorry again for being lost.

Hello, Shutter ,

Don't feel stupid! That's a credible question!

You would call the shop. They will connect you to the person in charge of reviewing your purchases and arranging an interview with Miss cat.

That's the process

Wishing you the best with the course. You will LOVE it!

Good morning everyone
I have been trying to find the correct email address for the questions that I have about enrollment. I am a Southern California native and I travel to and from NY but I am planning to make NY my permanent residence. Will this disqualify me?

Hi BTYGEENATION13,

If I understand your question, you would not be disqualified because of location as the course is conducted remotely. It is a correspondence course, not an in-person one. So you would be fine to enroll.

I hope this helps. Good luck.

Yay! My purchases have hit a fairly decent chunk of the necessary materials! I'll definitely be more selective when placing future orders.

I'm glad I read and familiarized myself with the course requirements. This week drove me to the point of wanting to deactivate Facebook. If it wasn't for the pages I admin and feeling an obligation to those groups and friends, it would have been zapped. Now there is yet another reason to hold onto it. I'll use Fiery Wall of Protection before visiting the feed from now on. It really takes it out of me to see peoples' cruelty on social media and has prevented me from engaging to the fullest extent for far too long.

Meanwhile, I can see the supply list is the "bare minimum" of what should be on hand to fully come to know and understand Hoodoo practice. I can't seem to place an order without realizing I'd like ten more items on hand! If anyone is ordering what they need or feel drawn to acquire (rather than what's required for the course) the list shoukdnt be a cause for stumbling at all!

I'm excited to start moving in the direction of the course. It may take more time. I have a long way to go and much I'd like to learn BEFORE I decide to enroll, but the discovery of the Apprencticeship Program for graduates has convinced me not to drag my feet for too long!

I have a sort of strange question. I'm student # (a really early number, in the 400s, class of 2005). I was looking at the old files I have, and I realized that I did a lot of the homework. I was just waiting to send it in until I had ALL the homework. The two assignments I don't have are the graveyard dirt and the oil. (Actually, I even have the recipe I whipped up for the oil, with the correct herbs, on the third try).

Stuff happened, I cleaned all of my drawers, the herbs and oils went bye-bye, but the homework I'd completed was still sitting in its padded little envelope. I know the rules were different then about enrolling, doing homework, and about failing out (there definitely wasn't a "failing out" back then).

So I'm just curious about the status of any of this. I had thought I hadn't even made the mojo bag, but I had, properly labeled and everything.

If I'd have to start completely from scratch now, that's fine. I'm happy with being a not totally dumb customer. And the copies of Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic and the correspondence course text have been a Godsend.
Thank you, St. Michael, for your protection.

amithyzt --

A drop of Van Van oil in a basin of water is a great help when ridding onself of Evil Facebook Vibes.

-----

Honeybeelight --

Hii. You are student #0471 from 2005.

You may turn in as much or as little homework as you have completed. Many students go from "failed" to "graduated" in one jump.

However, this is not the right part of the forum to discuss this matter -- you should be a member of the "secret" Forum section for students and graduates! If you are not a member there, please contact my husband, nagasiva yronwode at his Facebook page, and give him your name and student number, and he will fix you up.

I am very glad to hear from you and we will get you back on the road again ASAP.

Miss Cat,
I have a question regarding one of the requirements. If you would please clarify this, I will appreciate it.
My questions is:
Does Fiery Wall of Protection Sachet Powder qualify for the sachet powder for repelling/harming requirement? Please let me know.
Have a great weekend!

ELTURC0 --

Hi, i am often asked that question, and the answer is no. Fiery Wall of Protection is a protective product. It sets a boundary wall. It does not repel and it is not aggressive. Think of it as an electrified fence -- it is quite passive unless someone runs into it, and then they get a shock.

Compare that to aggressively repelling products

These cause harm: Crossing, Destruction, Damnation, DUME, Revenge, and Jinx

This causes people to move: Hot Foot

The ingredients in such products are very different than in Protection or Fiery Wall of Protection. The idea is to get you, the student, to understand the composition of the various types of products, based on what they accomplish.

Hope to see you as a student soon!

I'm usually pretty good at finding answers for myself (and others as is evident of my forum activities) but I seem to be hitting a brick wall here!

I contacted and spoke with Yosé, who was very nice and patient with answering my questions, about checking my orders to make sure my past orders, and next order will help to fulfill the requirements for the correspondence course. I was told to email about my situation and received an email back that my orders seem to be under my husbands name (which his name is on the card we use for placing orders however the LM account used was my own, the next order can be placed on a card with my name if absolutely necessary.) and I would receive an email when It was all sorted out (I had asked about a package we received as a 'thank you' for pointing out a copyright thief and if those products counted, to which I was told if there was an invoice and it could be found that It would. If I need to order products of the same type 'love, money, protection oil' then that is fine. I would just like to make sure my next order will meet or exceed the requirements.)

I know the store and the church are very busy which is why I try not to call the shop or church but rather email and I sent one last month thinking maybe my other got lost in the mix, though it has been 2 months since I last received an email.

My husband and I are very eager to set up our interview with Ms Cat and just want to ensure our ducks are in a row. Any suggestions as to how best to proceed without being too spammy with emails or tying up the phone lines at the store/church would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Ah, Rev James! Thanks for touching base!

I do two course calls per week. You and your husband may share your products except for the glass bottle and red flannel bag -- you will each need one of those for the homework -- and you will each need a course book, but the second (spousal) copy is at a reduced rate.

It is not "spammy" to ask -- and i am very pleased to see your interest.

Yose can handle the matter, but it might be faster to call me directly, due to the complex ordering history. I will probably be at the Church around 4:00 PM on Thursday or Friday. I will be using that office to tag books for Amazon, and will try to pick up. If i don;t answer, someone will, and they will hunt me down somewhere on the property. We'' go through the history and get your ordering histories straightened up.

Thank you Cat for your speedy response!

About the x2 flannel bag and bottle, I didn't even think about that and that's part of the reason I wanted to speak with someone. Thank you!

I was worried of being a nag! :-P

I know all of you are immensely busy and have various jobs around there so I appreciate you attempting to make time so quickly (as i'm eager to order the new books as well with my next order!) I will do my best to get a call to you today (I realize you'll probably see this after) but if not I definitely will Friday (as my husband will be off work tomorrow for us both to be available.)

Thank you again!

Hi, folks!

If you signed up for my Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course from 2003 - 2012, the only "Required Reading" you were given was my book "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic," published in 2002. It is BOO-GRI-HHSC in softcover or BOO-GRI-HHHC in hardcover and it relates to most of the lessons, but specifically to lessons 11 and, and to homeowrk 6.

You were also required to read my online free book, "Hoodoo in Theory and Practice," which has been written and uploaded periodically since 1994.

When you signed up for the course, i might also have sent you whatever free shop flyers i had that touched on specific issues, such as candle work, how to use oils, and so forth.

In 2013 i co-wrote, edited, and published "The Black Folder" -- a collection of all our previous shop flyers, plus the flyers that had been written by graduates of the course for presentation at Hoodoo Heritage Festival workshops from 2008 - 2013. This book was added to the "Required Reading" list for the course. It is BOO-GRI-BKFO and it consists of short articles that relate in one way or another to most of the lessons.

In 2013, i wrote "The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic" -- and this book was added to the "Required Reading" list for the course. It is BOO-GRI-AHCM and it relates to lessons 16, 17, and 43.

In 2015, i wrote "Paper In My Shoe" -- and this book was added to the "Required Reading" list for the course. It is BOO-GRI-PIMS and it relates to lessons 31, 32, and 33, and to homework 5.

In 2018, i wrote "The Art of Making Mojos" -- and this book was added to the "Required Reading" list for the course. It is BOO-GRI-MOJO and it relates to lessons 19 and 46, and to homework 8.

In addition to these "Required Reading" books, my husband and i have published many other books on magic and divination. As the editor of this extensive line of titles that describe and teach many aspects of African-American folk magic, i would like to recommend the following titles. All of these books were written by trusted colleagues who have taken my course, graduated, and moved into professional spiritual practices of their own, and all of the material has been edited by me. The following books are not required reading, but they developed from and relate back to specific lesson-chapters in my course:

• Hoodoo Spiritual Baths by Aura Laforest is BOO-GRI-HSPB -- and it relates to lessons 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.

• Deliverance by Khai Armand is BOO-GRI-DELI -- and it relates to lessons 9 and 41.

• This Amazing Book by Sunrae Products Company is BOO-BOT-TAMB -- and it relates to lesson 11 and to homework 6.

• Legends of Incense, Herb, and Oil Magic by Lewis de Claremont is BOO-GRI-LIHO -- and it relates to lessons 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 31, and to homework 6.

• Hoodoo Shrines and Altars by Miss Phoenix LeFae is BOO-GRI-HSAA -- and it relates to lessons 16 and 17.

• Hoodoo Honey and Sugar Spells by Deacon Millett is BOO-GRI-HHSS -- and it relates to lessons 22 and 39.

• Hoodoo Food! by The Ladies Auxiliary of MISC is BOO-GRI-HOFO -- and it relates to lesson 30.

• Cash Box Conjure by Miss Phoenix LeFae is BOO-GRI-CASH -- and it relates to lessons 20 and 40.

• Hoodoo Return and Reconciliation Spells by Deacon Millett is BOO-GRI-HRRS -- and it relates to lessons 38 and 39.

• The Sporting Life by Professor C. D. Porterfield is BOO-GRI-SPOR -- and it relates to lesson 40.

• Cursing and Crossing by Miss Aida is BOO-GRI- CURS -- and it relates to lesson 42.

• Destroying Relationships by Miss Aida is BOO-GRI-DEST -- and it relates to lesson 42.

• Hoodoo Bible Magic by Miss Michaele and Professor C. D. Porterfield is BOO-GRI-HBIM -- and it relates to lesson 44.

• A Deck of Spells by Professor C. D. Porterfield is BOO-GRI-ADOS -- and it relates to lesson 49.

• Throwing the Bones by catherine yronwode is BOO-DIV-BONE -- and it relates to lesson 49.

• Bones, Shells, and Curios by Michele Jackson is BOO-DIV-BSAC -- and it relates to lesson 49.

• Crystal Magic by Rev. Dr. Jon Saint Germain is BOO-GRI-CRYM -- and it relates to lesson 49.

• Lithomancy by Rev. Dr. Jon Saint Germain is BOO-DIV-LITH -- and it relates to lesson 49.

I was thinking about signing up, but I have an issue I can no longer burn incense because smoke makes me really sick. It said we are required to purchase charcoal. I have purchased many incense already.Also I cannot purchase anymore incense it said one for negativity or something. I’m having trouble using what I have many unopened. It’s very unfortunate I get sick from smoke because they smell really good. Is there a way around that?

I have the Black Folder book already and Cashbox. Also I would like the Herb and Root Magic, but hardcover with my name on it if I sign up.

As in requirements for repelling products I have Break Up oil, and Destruction, and Confusion already. Will this get me in?

Hello, Pyromancer.

The charcoal is to burn resin incense. You may burn it outdoors and not breathe the smoke. I just want you to see and understand what it is -- and to see why lumps of unburned resin incense and the unburned powder instances are sometimes used in mojo hands or to stuff dolls. This course is very thorough in is historical approac, and there is a reason for everything you should buy.

The required books do include The Black Folder and Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic -- also Paper in My Shoe, The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic, and The Art of Making Mojos.

The oils you named are all suitable "negative or repelling" oil. You will also need negtive or repelling incense, sachet power, and bath crystls.

Take your time and buy what you feel comfortable with.

How much is the course after I make these purchase? It said I have to buy CD’s as well? Does things like Van Van, Block Buster, Jinx Killer, Road Opener, etc count as repelling? What about Protection powder is that repelling? So basically repelling is a product that takes something away like bad luck or blockages? I’m more into those products than negative dark ones

You can read all about the course requirements and the cost of the course, as well as the free apprenticeship for graduates, here:

http://luckymojo.com/mojocourse.html

Repelling or negative products cause harm or sorrow, repelling products push people or spirits away. Road opener does neither. But it is also not attracting or drawing. It is a way-opener. The reason i want you to have both drawing and repelling items is so that you can experiment with them, learn about their scents, vibrational energy, and experiment with them.

I’m interested in Lucky 13. I had the oil but it all leaked out didn’t even get to use it. Is it considered repelling?

Can the shop also tell me what I have left to purchase before I can take the course?

pyromancer,

Lucky 13 is lucky -- it draws luck. So, no, it is not a repelling oil or a cursing oil.

You can call the shop or email any time and ask that a list of your prior purchases be sent to you so that you will know what you still need before having your interview and enrolling.

Blessings.

Pyromancer,

The person who organizes Miss Cat's course interviews is Yosé. You can call during business hours and ask for her on any day except Sunday and Monday, which are her days off. She will get you a list of what you have ordered and what you still need, and if you are good to go, she will set up an appointment for you to talk to Cat.

I just wanted to say "thank you!" to all who asked questions and gave answers in this thread :). I've been a customer of Lucky Mojo's since 2015, but have just recently gotten very excited about wanting to qualify to take the course, and have been Purchasing with a Purpose, if you will.

Thanks to Miss Cat for your patience explaining the repelling/negative stuff to us newbies, too!

I really appreciate all the time everyone puts into helping guide people who are really interested and ready to rock in the right direction :).

I've been looking through the site trying to get my ducks in a row, and realized I have one more question that I don't think has been answered here.

Would black salt be something you could use in a protection mojo bag? I'm trying to decide which mineral would be best, and I've never worked with black salt before (so thought it might be a good one to sniff and handle), but wanted it to be appropriate. If it's not, I'm happy to get some pyrite, loadstones, etc, which I know would suit (for a mojo, in general).

Thanks again for all the help! :)

Salt will disolve it it gets damp or wet. It is not the most stable mineral for a mojo hand.

When I took the course many years ago, I made my mojo with Lodestone grit. I also used the Lodestone grit to make a Jack Ball during the apprenticeship.

I decided to go with lodestone, and have a big ol' batch of awesome LM products coming my way! :D So, so excited to handle and smell and play with them all, and then (hopefully), set up a time sometime soon to speak with Miss cat about enrolling.

Nervous and very excited!

I look forward to it as well. Now, i hope you recall, it is four months that i have to have interacted with you before i schedule an interview. I have been come at so suddenly, so often, that i decided, a number of years ago, to take it slow and easy. Four invoices, big or small, and four months, til we get to know one another. I hope this okay with you.

Ah, that makes total sense :). I thought we'd needed to be a customer making purchases for over four months, but I get that, and completely understand!

Thank you for all your help already through the forum. I know we've only been interacting a short while, but it's already been a pleasure! :)

Thanks for all that you do!

Thanks for understanding, FiachnaRose.

Hang out around here a while and get to know the other folks who have taken the course. Their names are colour-coded, so you can recognize them when they post:

Black - Student
Blue - Graduate
Pink - Graduate and Apprentice
Navy - Graduate and member of Hoodoo Psychics
Purple - Graduate and member of the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers
Green - Graduate (and perhaps more than one other of the previous) plus Forum Moderator
Red - Graduate (and more than one other of the previous) plus System Administrator

Try to connect with some of those folks and friend them on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, too -- not to hit them up for free readings or advice, but to see what they post about their practice of rootwork (some do, some do not) and to try to connect with local practitioners in addition to grazing the internet.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Thanks so much, Miss cat! :)

I'd never thought about reaching out to the folks here on Facebook, but that's a great idea, and I'll do that. I'm terrible with social media, but I'd love to connect with other people interested in rootworking and conjure.

I'd checked into people locally first, hoping to find a little community here in Portland, OR, but to my dismay all we seem to have (out in the open, at least), are Wiccans and eclectics. I actually recently started going to a black Baptist church in my area, hoping to meet some like-minded folks, and make some new friends :). You never know when you'll meet someone who's granny taught them all about "that stuff!"

Thank you for the tips! I look forward to getting to know you as well!

Hi, FiachnaRose --

There is a reason you will not find many black practitioners of conjure in Portland, Oregon. It is not that they are not "out in the open," either. According to the latest US Census, self-identified "White" people make up 87% of Oregon's population and self-identified "Black or African American" people make up only 2.2%. We know that, due to the history of slavery, the percentage of Black people is highest in Southern, formerly pro-slavery states, and gradually diminishes as one moves West. But compare Oregon with the most recent census reports -- a national percentage of 13% "Black or African American" people, or neighboring California's 6.5% Black or African American population -- and you will see that Oregon is a statistical anomaly.

So, ask yourself the next questions:

How did Oregon get that way?

Did black folks just decide that they didn't like the beautiful climate, fertile valleys, rushing rivers, and magnificent forests of Oregon?

Or were they somehow excluded from entering the state?

Please read up on Oregon's shameful history of racial exclusion. Here are some articles to get you started:

Black Exclusion Laws in Oregon
https://oregonencyclopedia.org/articles ... 5qoT4UflyQ

Oregon black exclusion laws
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon_bl ... usion_laws

The Racist History of Portland, the Whitest City in America
https://www.theatlantic.com/business/ar ... and/492035

I think that after sitting with this history and considering its implications, you will understand why the relative absence of conjure shops in Portland has little to do with Oregon's Black practitioners feeling reluctant to be "out in the open" about folk magic, but a lot to do with a history of systemic racism in Portland.

Thank you for this. I've only recently sort of had my eyes opened to the racial reality here, i.e. the basically forced migration of black folks from their homes in North Portland to the East, away from their churches and community centers, shops, etc. And, like you said, that's only scratching the surface :(.

I have also heard recently that people have been actively leaving because of these issues, as well as treatment by the local P.D. There's an exodus happening. It's a mess, and it's absolutely our loss. And, of course, many white folks here turn a blind eye and point to their "BLM" bumpersticker, like they aren't participating in the gentrification that's a massive part of the problem.

I will read more and learn, and, like you said, sit with that. It's also my goal to be of service to the community that's still here, as best I can. That's part of why I'm so interested in learning about conjure, not only because of my family's longstanding southern roots and the fact that it "feels" right to me, but because I feel like if I can help people that feel ostracized here, I'd very much like to.

Anyway, thank you very much for the links! I'm just beginning my learning on the subject, and am very grateful!

FiachnaRose --

Yep, they may not teach the history of the Black Exclusion Laws in Oregon's public schools, but the demographic results are there for all to see.

Your seeking out and joining a Black Baptist church is a measure of your regard for the cultural roots of hoodoo, and i appreciate that greatly.

Yep, they definitely skipper that part, but it's definitely making everything sort of snap into place in my brain, knowing that.

And thank you, Miss cat! I definitely want to be a part of and learn from/love on the people I hope to be of service to. And like yoyou've said before, if you're a guest in someone's house, you'd better say "Amen" when they say grace! I definitely try to take that to heart.

Hi FiachnaRose!

I live in a very tiny farm town about a half hour South of you :). I've been unofficially practicing Hoodoo around here for about 10 years or so and I can help you out with information and with finding who you need to find around here. You won't find anyone in Portland who will talk about it, exactly as Miss cat said, and for the reasons she said as well. This actually made me admire Miss cat a thousand times more, because those things she told you, are only learned if someone persistently looks for the information. It's well hidden, as you've come to find out. I only learned about it because my best friend for the last 15 years is Black and I'm Hispanic and while we've both experienced or seen racism toward ourselves and/or family members.. Her experiences were different. It took us until we were college room mates before we ever thought to research it and, Oh my God, what we found was nauseating. But there are a few black practitioner communities here and there. You'll find them more readily if you know where to shop. As far as churches, I've found two in the entire state of Oregon that have somewhat of a Hoodoo community, but one was on Mt. Hood (so not easily accessible) and one was in far SE Oregon (also not easily accessible, but because of distance and no facilities nearby).

I don't know how to find you, but I'll look around on Facebook. I'm really good at finding people, and usually that's creepy and frowned upon but once in a blue moon, it proves useful to someone other than myself :)

FiachnaRose and ScorpioKate --

About 17 people from Portland, Oregon, have enrolled in my course and 3 of them have graduated. If you sign up for the course, you will have access to their names and the email addresses (but not the street addresses) they had when they signed up, or more recently, if they stayed in touch with me over the years. They may be willing to share their knowledge with you.

ScorpioKate, thanks for the info and for reaching out! I'm Fia Rose on Facebook, and would love to connect.

My cousins are latino and asian, and growing up I remember my male cousins always being hassled by the police for zero reason. My cousin Armando was stopped by the cops when he was 14 and riding his bike in our quiet neighborhood...because they assumed he'd stolen it.

I'm always grateful to learn about other people's experiences, because it's so, so easy to go through life with blinders on without even realizing they're there.

I'm glad to meet you, and excited to (hopefully) meet those graduates from the area someday! :)

It's been a long time trying to buy all books and required purchases but I finally did it and going to buy the course book soon! A tip for others, buy the books first to read and learn over time then when making required purchases try starting out with protection and money related products first so you can do simple magic to protect yourself and have more money available to make more purchases! I feel like it helped me.

Hello "thispurplegoddess", as I mentioned a couple of posts above, start ordering stuff that you can practice with now like protection, cleansing, and money work. Money work can help you spare some money for these purchases! hehe. Get some Chinese wash to start washing those floors, bath crystals sachet and incense powders for cleansing, etc. Would you really want to move forward without a good cleansing? I'd say start there but I'd also say let your heart speak to you. Actually make sure you have the books first so you can study in the mean time! after my first purchase I was more confident on what I wanted on my next order. I hope I helped.

I was reading the HooDoo Rootwork Correspondence Course (HRCC) about two or three days go trying to get more information on Homework assignments. I didn't realize that the assignments were included in the HRCC. To make a long story short while reviewing the HRCC I noticed that a book named "The Art of Making Mojos" had been added as a required book for the course. I also notice that there is about seven other books that are related to certain lessons that needs to be purchased. I purchased all of the needed books that were required earlier this year. Needless to say I thought that I was done purchasing all required materials until I took a second look at the online HRCC. After saying all of that, I would like to know if someone from Lucky Mojo Curior would have called to notify me. I mean the only reason why I know is because I stumbled upon it while looking for instructions on my homework.
