Chicago Says Hello

Unread post by Veve » Mon Mar 09, 2020 10:13 pm

Hey there,
I’m not new to this site, but have neglected to make an introduction up until now. I’m originally from Southern California, but have lived in quite a few cities in the US (New Orleans will always have my heart). This has allowed me to observe the way different cultures melt into and influence one another. Folk magic and beliefs are a nuanced and beautiful facet of this phenomenon.
I am drawn to witchcraft and hoodoo in particular because historically these are practices of the oppressed. Through the study of these traditions we glean a very precious insight into perspectives that are often swept aside by the dominant culture.
Spellwork also puts me into a state of flow I believe most seek out through other avenues, such as mediation. When I incorporate it into my life I feel a greater connectedness to the world, a near oceanic feeling.

I have lots of questions and am eager to learn, never just the what but also the why. I desire a comprehensive understanding that comes from getting to the root of these rituals. I’ll try not to be too onerous, though! I respect the time of everyone involved with this site and will always research before I ask.

Nice to meet you, thanks for reading, and take care.

Veve,

Hello and welcome to the forum. It is always wonderful to have friends come out from the shadows and jump in the fun. I was a lurking for few weeks in the beginning and thought, what am I doing, these are my people!
Thank you for taking the time to introduce yourself. If you have any questions, we are always happy to help!


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

Hoodoo History:

Mojo Hands:

Oils:

Powders:

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.
