Ya'at'eeh from New Mexico!

I read Zora Neale Hurston's "Mules and Men" and thought it was fascinating (I love ethnography), so of course I went around talking about it. My cousin, all sneaky-like, started dropping some hints . . . turns out she practices! :o I had her teach me some stuff and have been lurking around here to learn more for a couple of month but decided I'd finally join so that I can talk to people and ask questions. I'm new to this and want to make sure I learn it the right way!

I've got a few Dine (Navajo) friends who have taught me some natural remedies over the years so I've grown up believing in the spiritual nature of plants which makes hoodoo really interesting to me. And since the couple of things I've tried have been really successful maybe I have a gift. Who knows? I'm sure the people here will have a lot of teach me and I thank all of you in advance. :D

Hi Naatsedlozii and welcome to the Forum. Given your interest in natural remedies and plants, consider getting yourself a copy of Miss Cat's Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic. It's a great book and reliable reference: http://www.luckymojo.com/hoodooherbmagic.html

I am posting the most popular forum threads and some forum rules for you to browse. These are links to general information on Hoodoo and to give you a jumping off point.

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.
