Info for New Clients

I provide some altar and spell work with only short, informal consultation, so you do not usually need a session or paid appointment to talk with me about it. This would be work like light settings, the creation of mojos, pakets, and pwen cho (points chauds), preparation of custom spell kits for you to work on your end (with instructions), and the customization of talismans like custom St. Michael pakets and custom chicken foot charms. For work like this, just contact me to discuss your needs, and/or book your service or order your custom item at the store.

Longer-term and more complex work requires a formal consultation session before I could say if I would take your case, what I would recommend, and what sort of materials and costs would be involved. If I determine that I can/will take your case, I'll make recommendations for how to proceed, and then I'll type up a detailed rootwork contract for you to review so you and I are both crystal clear about what your work involves, what it costs, and what you can expect. Your work will only begin after you have agreed to the contract terms.

If I can't/won't take your case, I'll explain what I recommend instead. E.g., if I think another worker might be a better fit for you, I'll try to introduce you to that other worker. Or if I think you'd be better served by doing some different type of work yourself, like a series of spiritual baths, I'll provide you with instructions.

 

Specialties

I specialize in Success, Protection, Uncrossing, Reversing, and Spiritual cleansing work. Protection work is a particular specialty of mine, and I am not lady-hearted about taking action in cases that consultation and divination reveal to be justified. I am a firm believer in good old-fashioned personal and home cleansing and protection; experience has taught me that it is the foundation for success in so many other kinds of work.


 

Reconciliation Work

I will happily consult with you if you want guidance on doing your own Reconciliation work, but I take Reconciliation cases involving separated couples only very occasionally. I imagine I decline 80 cases for every one that I take.

I will usually take Reconciliation cases if the people involved are not ex-lovers, so I will sometimes do Reconciliation work for friends, coworkers, and long-term couples who have not separated.

Reconciliation is not necessarily synonymous with "getting back together" or "returning a lover," though the vast majority of clients who contact me seeking reconciliation work are actually seeking to reunite with an ex. Reconciliation is, by definition, the restoration of friendly relations. That's all. Getting back together with an ex is often a second/separate and distinct step.

Clients wanting to reunite with an ex are often quite new to spiritual work in general, do not have realistic expectations, are feeling very emotional or even desperate, and are thus ripe for predation by unscrupulous charlatans who will make big promises and deliver some exciting product copy -- and nothing else. Please, please educate yourself before spending money on spiritual work if you don't come from a background where you're familiar with it, especially if you're seeking work to get back together with an ex. See the Education tab in the main menu for some places to start.

Breakup, Crossing, & Revenge Work

I will sometimes do Breakup, Crossing, and Revenge work if consultation and divination reveal that the work is justified, is likely to have the desired outcome, and will be ultimately beneficial to the health and happiness of the client. These conditions are met in maybe 15% of the cases that cross my "desk," so I decline far more cases than I accept. Many clients who want this kind of work are new to spiritual work, have unrealistic expectations, are highly emotional, and think the work will accomplish things that it may very well not accomplish (like return their lover or somehow fix injustices done to them in the past). 

Often, there are better ways to do what they *really* want to do than focusing on Breakup or Revenge anyway, so to be blunt, when a client books a consultation for this kind of work, that session is as much about me assessing what the client knows about and expects from such work as it is about the situation itself.  

If you contact a worker for work like this and you have been a client of a reputable colleague of theirs who can vouch for your stability and the fact that you don't habitually try Goofering work on everybody who parks on your side of the street, you'll often improve your chances of having your case considered by that worker who doesn't know you yet.

Love Drawing Work

I make a lot of mojo bags and set a lot of lights and honey jars for love-drawing. When it comes to longer-term cases or more complex situations, though, I am much choosier. I have a low tolerance for needy clients who want a therapist + spell caster + confidant + somebody to talk them off a ledge, and I get extremely annoyed with clients who would send an email about their relationship labeled "urgent" and the email says "he didn't call me last Friday."

So I prefer to do love drawing work for older, more mature people, especially those who are looking to draw new love into their lives versus being focused on a particular target.

 

If you have been single for a while, or dating casually for a while and want to think about settling down, we will probably work well together. If you feel you must contact me regularly to give me the play-by-play about how many times your target texted you last week, we will probably not work well together and a different worker would be a better fit for you.
 

Religious & Cultural Considerations

I work with clients from all kinds of faiths and creeds and strive to work with you on creating solutions that are suitable and ethical within your spiritual beliefs and practices. I was raised a sort of maverick, hippie-flavored Catholic but have a great deal of experience with and knowledge of other faiths and folk traditions.

Most of my clients these days are Protestant Christians, followers of an African traditional religion, or consider themselves spiritual but not a certain denomination. However, I work with clients from lots of different faiths, cultures, nations, and countries. If there are some spells or approaches you would rather not use, or some ways of working that you prefer over others, I can work with you on finding an approach that sits right with you. I won't just say "here's the only option you have, take it or leave it." Read more about religious and cultural considerations, my religious background, and my sacramental work at my About page.

Hoodoo, Vodou, and Why You Should Be Leery of "Powerful Voodoo Magic"

Hoodoo is what you might call a magical system rather than a religion. Hoodoo isn't really the sort of work where everything must be done "just so," according to a precise list of imperatives, read exactly this way, at exactly this hour, in rhymed iambic pentameter with this many ounces of herbs, by someone who's received certain sacraments. It's very forgiving of necessity and it's workable regardless of the religious background of the person doing the work. You or your worker might call on a saint regardless of whether you know much about Catholicism, for example, and you will probably find that most saints don't mind - they'll work with you anyway as long as you develop a relationship with them and hold up your end of things.

Vodou, on the other hand, is a religion. It happens to have some apparent overlap with hoodoo and conjure in some practices, more or less so depending on your region of the world, but it's a distinct thing. This has a couple of implications. One, while you can walk in off the street and ask me to do work with the spirit of High John the Conqueror for you in the hoodoo tradition, you cannot walk in off the street and ask me "to do vodou" for you. It would not be appropriate or wise for me to approach the spirits within the religion of vodou on behalf of just anyone of just any culture/background for just any reason. And even if I would, that wouldn't necessarily be the best route to take for your situation.

 

And two, you should be wary of anybody who says they will do this, or who advertises simply "powerful voodoo magic" or calls themselves "the voodoo priestess/doctor/whatever" and does not discuss the spirits they serve (called lwa) or their methods of working with them.  

Not every vodouisant can or will approach just any lwa for just any old reason. If a worker gives you the impression they can do "powerful voodoo magic" for you no matter what you're asking for, they're either being really imprecise with their language or they're just not being honest.

The lwa must be approached in a religious ritual, and the right lwa must be approached the right way. These methods must include offerings and sacrifices. And most of those have to be done according to established principles (and often by specifically trained "clergy" within the religion). Otherwise, it's not vodou. They're just taking the word, using it imprecisely and actually dishonestly, and counting on it to convey the exotic and mysterious - which suggests they have no real knowledge of it and no real respect for it, either.

Hold your potential spiritual worker to a higher standard. You deserve better. Take the time to educate yourself on the basic principles of spellwork for hire and on how to be a smart client and avoid getting ripped off. See the Education tab in the main menu for some recommended reading/good starting places.

Distance & In-Person Work

 I do most work at a distance from the client; most conjure work, even uncrossing, can be done without physical client presence. I do not have a shop you can drop into without an appointment. 

However, in rare, severe cases I am sometimes available for in-person Uncrossing or Spiritual Cleansing. In the past, I've hosted Spiritual Cleansing / Head-washing (lave tet) events in Georgia and Alabama, and those are a possibility for the future. Emailing me would be the first step.

Client Etiquette

Clients get reputations just like spellworkers and rootworkers do, and clients who behave badly may find that their reputation precedes them, so minding your Ps and Qs is wise practice if you want to be invited to an ecclesiastical gathering or a conjure or rootwork event (and frankly if you want to have any kind of working relationship with a professional root doctor or spiritual worker). For tips on finding a good worker, on being a good client, on etiquette and ethics, on picking up the basics of conjure spellwork, and on learning your way around the hoodoo world in general, see the Education tab in the above menu
