New and Happy to Be Here!

Unread post by Hippie_Sista_Nat » Tue Mar 06, 2018 9:32 am

Good morning everyone, I’m very happy to get into the forum. There is so much here.

I’m a special education teacher. I was drawn to Special Education because both of my children are profoundly impacted by autism. I myself have multiple sclerosis. Currently, I’m on extended sick-leave because I had a major MS attack/relapse.

Although it’s crappy to be ill, I’m looking at this time as an opportunity to do some thinking and my life and spiritual work.

My mother died recently. In fact her memorial service was two days before my attack.

My family is from the Deep South, Alabama and Georgia, but I was raised in Maryland. I was always interested in the practice and helping people. Both my grandmothers (Sister Catheryn and Sister Ella) helped people in their neighborhoods and were always treated with the greatest respect. Both of my parents didn’t like it and tried to do everything they could to keep me off “alternate pathways”. I’m definitely the “quirky, different” one in the family. I’m okay with that.

I’m sad that everyone in my family who could teach me has past on, but during a reading at a circle I was encouraged to research it more. I looked at many sites and groups but nothing felt right. Then I saw your name. I’m a huge comicbook fan who writes and draws stories for fun. Back when I read your book, there were few people who took that subject seriously. You had such a scholarly approach. I knew you’d handle this subject with the same honor.

I’m very happy to be here and that this group is part of my journey.

Hello Hippie_Sista_Nat,

Welcome! We're happy to have you here :) Thanks for sharing your story, it's very interesting! I'm glad too that this forum has become a part of your journey. I hope you find it useful!

I'm going to post some helpful links and forum rules. If you have any questions just let us know!

---------------------------------

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

Hoodoo History:
http://luckymojo.com/hoodoohistory.html

Oils:

Baths:

Powders:

Conditions and how we can address them:

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

5) Please do not start new topics

6) Please do not quote people
Thank you saints and spirits!

Hello Hippie_Sista_Nat,

Thank you so much for the kind words about my comic book days and my days in the field of folk magic. I am sorry to hear of your troubles -- MS is a difficult path; i have had two friends who dealt with it; one has passed, the other is "coping and hoping," as she puts it.

I am here to help, to teach what i know, and to honour those who taught me. Any way that i can be of service to you, i will be glad to help.
