Spell to Cure a Wanker Who’s Wasting Your (or His Own) Life

If your loved one (romantic or friend) has a problem with living in a world of fantasy and masturbating rather than having real life relations, this spell may be helpful.  It is meant to motivate him to keep his hands out of his pants, and his face out of the magazines and computer screen, and get him out to the real world of real women. Light a red candle and anoint it with Eshu/Shango oil, …

Sacred Paint for Seals, Runes, Etc.

If you are physically male, during the full moon when all waters including those of the body “bulge”, do your usual daily observance. Have a vial, a very sharp, sterile blade, some red or black acrylic paint, and a clear quartz crystal that is small enough to go into the vial without taking too much space. From thought alone, clear your mind.  Whichever being comes to your mind after this, imagine yourself in a compatible …

Protection Charm Against Harmful Suitors, Lovers, or Potentials

Since modern times have brought with them many perils in the field of love and romance, things one used to take for granted, one can’t anymore.  Because it takes awhile to know what someone’s true intentions are, but things tend to move quickly in the heat of the moment, it is a good idea to have a little insurance against the effects of someone’s hidden malice or stupidity. This is not a love spell.  It …

Return to Sender

Most of the time, people haven’t invested a whole lot into their curses and hexes.  They don’t live a spiritually observant life and they don’t give proper offerings to the deities they’re “working with”, so the only thing that carries their spells is force of will.  This can be powerful, don’t get me wrong, but only if they are sent to someone who is vulnerable and unaware. This “return to sender” blocking tactic will work …

How to Use Deer Musk Pods

Real deer musk can be very expensive, and some people find harvesting of the actual musk producing gland unethical.  Fortunately, during the mating season, many kinds of deer pee all over the place, and rub up against things, leaving their musk around in little hairy balls or pods.  These pods contain a very good grade of musk that can be used in perfume and spellwork. The problem is that most people don’t really know what …

How to Make Divining Coins

Sometimes you just need a yes or no answer, and for this, a divining coin can do the job.  People who may benefit from this the most will be children of Eshu/Gate Keeper who know how to ask the right questions. For a temporary one-time use, you can take just about any coin and run it through Eshu incense smoke, and it’ll do the job for the moment.  To make a permanent coin though, you …

Unofficial Ifa Incense

Even though initiation is required for Ifa priesthood, everyone who does any sort of divination owes this ability to Orunmila.  So we should all be giving him offerings and respect, especially if we are using any system that relies on numbers and corresponding verses, be they from the Odu Ifa or any other religious text. You may find this incense helpful if you are using the opele/awpele, coins, dice, dominos, numbered or marked tiles, or …

Oshun and Oya Seduction-Chaos Cake

Before we begin, let me just say that this cake is dangerous.  If the union is not completely against his Nature, it will cause the man to want to make passionate love with its maker.  Treat this recipe with the utmost care because if a person actually does give in to their desires, and feels some guilt for it afterwards, it can make them hate you later as much as they wanted you at the …

Ingredient Spotlight: Kola Nuts

Kola is an important nut in west Africa, and by extension in some diaspora traditions.  However, in the north American diaspora, it is rarely heard of.  In my opinion, this needs to be remedied.  It embodies hospitality, good will, and unity. Rather than repeat what has already been written on the subject, here are some links about kola and how it is used in Africa.  After this, I have more to say about its use …

Ingredient Spotlight: Peaches

In my tradition, peaches were a sort of substitute offering for mangoes.  I was told their sweet taste and wet, juicy texture were pleasing to all Spirits, so if I wasn’t sure what to give, then peaches were always a good bet, much like coconut, mangoes, tobacco, and myrrh.  Specifically though, they embodied and promoted fertility, youthfulness, and wellness in the way of preserving the good function of digestive organs. After having a dream about …

Ingredient Spotlight: Bay Leaves

Bay leaf has a variety of uses in magic and herbal medicine.  It is extremely helpful in sparking prophetic visions, lucid dreaming, and contemplation for the purpose of finding the reality of a situation or solving a dilemma.  It is an excellent addition to a potpourri or incense for divination. There is already a lot written about the medicinal and magical properties of bay leaf, and again I’d like to avoid rewriting what has already …

Good Girl Oil

If you’re a marriage minded young lady this oil will help to make that very clear to the men around you.  If you are a “bad girl”, but don’t want people to know that, or need to shake off your past, or want to cover up your dirty deeds, you can also use this.  Just a word of caution though, this may prevent men from seeing you as a prospect for sex alone, so it …

Changing the Blood and Getting Rid of Old Personal Effects

Wherever we go, we leave behind parts of ourselves.  Some of these parts can be used by others to influence us magically or through the Collective Consciousness/Unconscious, depending on which you believe.  Also, if we do this sort of work, the things we save from others have an energy that can affect us. So it is highly important for all involved in mystical work, even if it is as simple as healing, to know how …

Ingredient Spotlight: Coriander/Cilantro

Coriander/Cilantro is one of the most important herbs to have in your “tacklebox”.  It is a famous ingredient in love charms and other love related workings, but what you may not know is that it is also useful in banishing. How could that be?  It is partly because of the effect that the aroma of it has on the brain.  One either loves coriander or hates it.  It is one of those herbs that nobody …

Cleansing the Seed

Changing the blood will permanently and fully detach you from personal effects you have left behind anywhere.  Sometimes though, you don’t quite need all that.  In the case that you have otherwise been very careful, but all of the things you’ve left behind have been during or because of sex, you just need to change your seed.  Mind you, this will only work if you have never done any magical work with them that did …

Boss Fix Spells

Boss fix spells are to protect you from those who have some worldly advantage over you.  They can be used to create harmony between you and your boss, or to get rid of a really bad boss who is making life unnecessarily difficult for the workers.  Which should be used depends on which you need. As with many things, traditions vary.  Most boss fix spells I’ve seen are incomplete because it seems some steps may …

Kindoki Basics: Fetishes

In African and diaspora Kindoki, a fetish is a blessed object, statue, doll, or other figure that embodies a deity, ancestral spirit, or Ndoki.  They are made for many purposes, from protecting a grave site or home, to cursing people with misfortune.  Traditions vary from place to place, family to family, and person to person, as far as how they are customarily made and blessed.  So here, I will be posting general guides for how …

Kindoki Basics: Found Eshu Stones

When you find a stone that is shaped like a dome, a male child’s or elder’s face, or is somewhat phallic and able to stand on its own, it can be an Eshu.  If it is small, it can live on your altar or be placed near the entrance or entry path or a suitable corner of someplace you consider sacred, special, or in need of protection. That it has lived outside in raw Nature …

Oya’s Magical Sprays

Oya, the Orisha of storms, wind, and air in general, is said to dislike smoke.  So when we are giving observances to her, or asking for her energy for a spell, we usually give her potpourri, sprays, or liquids to evaporate.  In more scientific streams of Vodun, she is also fed through Iroko or by watering other tropical plants with large leaves who would feed her relatively quickly and well, and make it rain more.  …

Fertility Herbs, Spells, and Charms Part 1

If you or someone you know is trying to conceive, or has trouble carrying to term, there are many ways you can make things easier.

Fertility Herbs, Spells, and Charms, Part 2: Fertility Deities

When you are trying to make a pregnancy happen, it is important to give special observance/offerings to the deities who make that happen.  This will vary by tradition.  In Zindoki and other west and central African belief systems though, we believe that the physical and spirit realm overlap quite a bit, so observance and offerings become a part of one’s lifestyle.  Taking care of a deity’s children, or receiving blessings from their children is like …

Bird’s Nest Magick

Birds’ nests are considered sacred in many cultures.  Among some in the African diaspora in north America, they generally represent family, prosperity, and the Orishas watching us or watching over us.  It is considered very bad luck to disturb a bird’s nest, so if a particular bird’s eggs are needed for a working, or one has to cut down a tree where birds are living, offerings are given to the Mama and Papa Bird of …

Go Away Evil! Spray Recipe

In east coast Obeah and southwest Brujeria and Kindoki, Go Away Evil spray is very popular.  Almost nobody makes it from scratch anymore though, and I think that is a shame.  It smells nice, and it is really hard to be negative with this scent around.  Almost everybody who’s used it has seen how well it works, which is why it is so popular and widespread.  I myself have seen people who were hard core …

Shango Smoulder Incense: A Non Teargas Version of Shango Incense

China Rain Oil Recipe (for Bringing New Love and New Stuff in General)

The original China Rain oil designed by the Terra Nova company brought “rainy” scents into popularity.  There were many copies, but one stream stood out.  These were the versions made by African spiritual scentologists with stands in Venice Beach California.  Because of its ingredients (which may or may not be very different from the original), the raining aspects of it actually worked, and it became a staple ingredient in the spiritual community. Alas, markets shift, …

Egyptian Musk Oil Recipe

Egyptian Musk is a very popular scent, but recipes vary.  The sort that I prefer is the 80’s version that was light, sweet, and simple.  It was great worn alone, but also helped to soften other spicier scents, making them less “heavy” or “old lady”, and more youthful. When it is blessed by Oshun, its already attractive attributes are magnified tenfold.  This is what you want to be wearing to drive your potential partner crazy.  …

Spiritual people have very good reason to be aware of vampires and vampiric energy.  Though every living being, in their way, needs to feed on other life in order to live, the vampiric entity does so more voraciously and inconveniently than may be comfortable or appropriate, if left unchecked. It is important to understand that these entities are not in any way unnatural, and whether or not one deserves the label “evil” is a matter …

How to Make Magickal Oils Properly

Oil recipes abound, but very little is written about the process of making magickal oils.  An oil evaporates more slowly than something water or alcohol based.  It stays liquid and active longer once exposed to air. Oils also have a long shelf life without the need for absolutely sterile conditions.  They lubricate.  They can be emollients to hold moisture in.  They can form a protective layer to keep things out.  All around, oils are a …

Charmed Gifts For Your Woman

You honestly didn’t think guys buy gifts for women just for materialistic purposes, did you?  One of the things that has been lost with hookup culture is the power men (and masculine people) once had to inspire actual love in women (and feminine people).  Not only do you end up objectifying the people you are told not to objectify, but you don’t even get the opportunity to show them that they are more than a …

Congo Oil Recipe for Bringing Changes

Congo oil is one of those things that everyone seriously has a different recipe for.  Some of the ingredients that are fairly consistent are some herb with caffeine, something peppery, and something very fresh.  Whichever one you get, it’s going to be deep, but like Tiger Balm for the soul.
