I Can See Clearly Now

I touched a little on this in our last radio show. For this work you will be working with the Prophet Daniel. In Daniel 2 V 22 we see that God reveals things that are hidden.

22 He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.

I’ve lived with the gift of sight my whole life; I have always just known things. I was never told that it was a sin or it was of the devil. I was never told it was evil. My mama had the sight, so did my Granddaddy and my Grandma on my daddy’s side. The only person who ever said anything that someone might perceive as negative towards the gift was my other Grandma she said “I was a heathen”; which was probably true lol. I never had a bad experience in church or around church folk; my Mama wouldn’t have put up with it.

I watched my mama many of times looking in a cup or a glass with water in it. Sometimes it was clear water sometimes it had a blue tint to it. I never asked her what she was doing. When she was in what we called “her Mood” we didn’t mess with her. We just knew it was important. She never burned candles. I do because I love them. When there is something hidden in the dark that you just can’t put your finger on; get a jar or glass of water. I use an ole mason jar. Add a few drops of Ms. Stewart’s bluing to the water, along with a little Holy water. Get a white stick candle and place it behind the jar or glass. Petition God and the Prophet Daniel to help you find the answer you are looking for. Ask them to help you see what is hidden.

I leave my jar on my table in my shop. I don’t let the water dry up; if the water gets low I just add more water and stir it up. This is an ole school way of reading. If you haven’t ever tried it you should. Momma Starr

Magicians, Astrologers, Sorcerers

Some folks today would like for us to believe that if you have the gift of sight you shouldn’t use it to help others because it is a sin “so they say” but in the book of Daniel it says something different! In Daniel 2 Nebuchadnezzar has a dream, he calls all the magicians, the astrologers, the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans before him. The King demands that they tell him what this dream means. He has really been bothered with his dream and its meaning; so much so he can’t sleep. If they can’t tell him the meaning of the dream they will all be put to death.

Daniel 2 V2

2 Now in the second year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; and his spirit was so troubled that his sleep left him. 2 Then the king gave the command to call the magicians, the astrologers, the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans to tell the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king. 3 And the king said to them, “I have had a dream, and my spirit is anxious to know the dream.

In V10-11 we see that none of them could answer the King. He ordered his guard to kill them all. They were to kill all the folks with sight in Babylon. Nebuchadnezzar was mad as hell.

10 The Chaldeans answered the king, and said, “There is not a man on earth who can tell the king’s matter; therefore no king, lord, or ruler has ever asked such things of any magician, astrologer, or Chaldean.

11 It is a difficult thing that the king requests, and there is no other who can tell it to the king except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.

Then in came Daniel. In Daniel 2 v13 we see that the King started killing all the wise men.

13 So the decree went out, and they began killing the wise men; and they sought Daniel and his companions, to kill them.

They went and asked Daniel to help them to go and talk to the King to try and save their lives. In V16-19 we see where Daniel went to his companions and asked them to help him pray to God for the answer of this dream so they too would not be killed.

16 So Daniel went in and asked the king to give him time, that he might tell the king the interpretation.

17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions,

18 that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.

19 Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

So they prayed and we see in V27-30 that God gave Daniel the gift of sight so that he would be saved from death.

27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, “The secret which the king has demanded, the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, and the soothsayers cannot declare to the king.

28 But there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head upon your bed, were these:

29 As for you, O king, thoughts came to your mind while on your bed, about what would come to pass after this; and He who reveals secrets has made known to you what will be.

30 But as for me, this secret has not been revealed to me because I have more wisdom than anyone living, but for our sakes who make known the interpretation to the king, and that you may know the thoughts of your heart.

“If you want to know what the dream was then you will have to get out your bible and read Daniel 2 to clear up the mystery”. God gave us our gifts to help folks. That is why we have them; as Daniel said they are not for us nor do they belong to us. They belong to God and more folks really need to remember this! Momma Starr

I Hope to see you there.

Tar Water or Creolina

Tar water is like a double edge sword; it can be used for cleansing and protection but it can also be used in crossing works. Today we are looking at it for cleansing and protection. It’s hard to find tar now days but you can find Creolina which is a commercial brand sold in some ole stores. Creolina is a coal tar deodorant cleaner’s it can be used to spiritually cleans the inside and the outside of the house.

This stuff smells really bad but it works. Just a cap in a mop bucket or in a spray bottle can be used to cleanse the house. If you mop your house make sure you clean the corners. Once you have mopped the whole house take the left over mop water and pour it at the end of your walk way in a straight line. This will put a straight line of protection across your walk way; if anything or anyone tries to cause you issues they have to cross that spiritual line.

Creolina mixed with a little holy water and salt can offer an added protection to your yard. Make a bucket up and dress the 4 corners of the yard and around the house. Creolina will also kill any tricks that have been thrown in your yard. You can also wash your door, stoop and sidewalk down once a week to bring in blessings. This stuff smells really bad and you have to be careful because it can burn the skin. Never work with it unless you have added water to it. This may seem like simple work but it is powerful.

Memorial Day Weekend

This is a time when my family honors our dead. The morning was spent cleaning and dressing graves. Then we all came to my house for some good Texas Bar-B-Que and some family time. We had a wonderful day as a family. Everyone pitched in and helped build a deck on my son’s house. This is what families should be; enjoying each other, with love and thankfulness. We honored all of our ancestors as is fitting. We finished the day with some ice cold watermelon sprinkled with salt. Lord it reminds me of my childhood. I hope everyone had a wonderful safe weekend.

Conjure Give It To The Ants!

Over the years I have learned many tricks working with Ants. I prefer to work with what we call "fire ants". Ants are workers and stay busy. If you have ever watched them. Also when they leave a nest that dirt can be used in a couple of different works. If you have an issue with someone and you don't want to use HotFoot you can put the ants to work.

Take an egg and make a hole in one end. Drain the egg out. Burn the persons photo or name to ash, mix it with a little syrup and load it into the egg. Cover the hole with a thin peice of paper. Pour syrup over the egg then bury it with the hole end of the egg in the ant bed. Before long the person will move on. This works and it is nicer than hotfoot. Momma Starr

Conjure Who Were The Prophets

There were quite a few Prophets in the Bible; but since I work with the Old Testament those are the Prophets we will look at. First off you may be wondering what a Prophet is. A Prophet is a person God chooses to speak his word. God goes directly to the Prophet and tells him what he wants of him. If you look in Numbers 12 V 1-8 you will see that Aaron and Miriam tried to be the go between Moses and God. God put a stop to that fast. God went straight to Moses and told him what he wanted him to do.
This also tells us that we don’t need a go between to reach God he is there waiting. If you look in the book of “Kings” you will find out about the Prophet Elijah. God sent Elijah out to meet with “Ahab”. Elijah just showed up one day. You see there was a problem with Jezebel; Ahab’s wife. She was ordering Gods Prophets be put to death. Of course God didn’t appreciate this so he sent Elijah in. It’s a whole bunch of drama. Of course King Ahab couldn’t listen so God through Elijah brought down a drought; no rain in sight. The drought lasted until God told Elijah it was over.
Are you wondering how Elijah made it through the drought? Well God had a widow woman and her son helped him. In 1Kings 17 we see that God commanded a widow to help Elijah. We also see that the Ravens fed him while he waited for Gods next move. Elijah also brought the widows son back from death.
1King 17 V2-7
2 Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, 3 “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 4 And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.”
5 So he went and did according to the word of the Lord, for he went and stayed by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. 7 And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.
More Prophets to come. Momma Starr

The Darker the Sweet the Stronger the Heat

You know there's an old saying "The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice." I definitely know this is true for sugars and sweeteners in Hoodoo but as I would put it "the darker the sweet the stronger the heat."

What I mean by this is that in my experience I've always had more success using darker sugars and syrups than with the lighter sweeteners.

Brown sugar works stronger than white sugar. Try using it to draw money to you or for any work that has to do with bringing peace and prosperity to the family. Do the same thing with white sugar and compare the difference.

Brown and other darker sugars work better in Conjure work because they're SWEETER plus they're PURE and unrefined. These small differences in texture do make a big difference in the work just like they would in a good ole pie.

Most old timey works call for brown sugar. Brown sugar always reminds me of home. I think about 'Mamie' (cajun french for granny) and sweet potato pies made with brown sugar and a perfect sprinkling of cinnamon at the top. I miss Mamie and her pies that it brings tears to my eyes.

To give an idea of how to put brown sugar to use here's a simple trick for prosperity using a medicine bottle.

In a small medicine bottle add some brown sugar, cinnamon, sassafras root, devil's shoestring, and your petition written on a $2 bill. Add a little holy water and pray Psalm 23. Close the bottle and shake it while stating your petition.

Watch your brown sugar work its magic. It has a different feel than regular white sugar. The same can be said of salts..More on that later. Drlovebug

Protestant Saints in Hoodoo

I know the title sounds a little funny but it speaks an unspoken truth (pun intended). Most traditional hoodoo workers will tell you in a heartbeat that they don't work with the saints. They may even say it's pagan and might link it to idolatry HOWEVER they do work with the prophets. This is evident in the gospel songs, prayers, and the true old works that you don't hear about least as far as the Internet is concerned!!! Now as we all know that will change soon because folks will start to make claims about the prophets. Hmmm...go figure.

So some of y'all are probably saying "Where am I going with this?" Well I'll tell you. Just like the Catholic saints the prophets in Conjure work are extremely powerful. There's Moses, David, Jeremiah, King Soloman, Ezekiel, and many countless others. These spirits are just as much a part of Conjure work as the saints. Heck you can buy supplies left and right that's named or associated with the prophets like King Soloman Wisdom products, Exodus Oil, et cetera. There are even special roots named after the biblical prophets like Soloman Seal root, Sampson Snake root, HIGH JOHN THE CONQUEROR root, just to name a few. Some roots are named after people of power in the Bible who were considered wicked like Jezebel root for example.

The point I'm trying to make is that you always hear about hoodoo products being made related to the prophets and what they're "reputed" to do but NOBODY is talking about how to work with Biblical prophets. The prophets give power to the work so they should be acknowledged. Momma Starr teaches a lot of information about how to work with the prophets in her bible book. As with other things I think this topic should be brought forth and discussed more in detail.

Like the Catholic saints the prophets have an important place in traditional conjure work that should be recognized. The prophets are the "Protestant Saints" of hoodoo, conjure, rootwork after all. Drlovebug

The Two Greatest Commandments

Matthew 22:35-40

King James Version (KJV)
35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

The two commandments above that Jesus spoke are the most important in Conjure work. First you have to love God with all your heart because God is love. God is joy. When you are dealing with the Higher Power you have to give your all to God because that is where the power comes from.

After you consecrate yourself to God and you let Spirit move in your life you must share that love with others who need it. This is what's missing in Hoodoo on the Internet. Some online workers are too busy trying to make money and cash out on desperate folks troubles.

There are some people who need help that can't afford to have work done. I compare "some" of these folks (only some!!!) to a homeless person needing a little food and water. Will you turn down a hungry mouth? I know I never would. As spiritually minded people we need to get back to that mentality and learn to love our neighbors as well as ourselves. God is love and love is meant to be shared with others.

This applies to all areas of our lives including Conjure Work. Just some food for thought...Drlovebug

OldStyleConjure Radio: Bible Prophets (The "Protestant Saints" of Hoodoo)

Date: Saturday 05/26/2012
Time: 8pm Central
Call-In #: (347) 237-4264

In this show Momma Starr will get down to the nitty gritty on how to work with the prophets of the Bible.  In her last show the topic came up in the discussion. In order to understand the prophets and how much power God has bestowed upon them you need to have an understanding of Scripture.
This means you have to read the bible with "open" eyes. This is an aspect of true Conjure work that's not talked about nor discussed on the Internet. Most online hoodoos know about the saints but truth is the vast majority of Conjure workers and root doctors off the Internet do not work with them BUT these same Protestant hoodoos do work with the prophets which is right there in the Bible.
Tune into this show as Momma Starr & Drlovebug talk about the prophets who are considered the "Protestant saints" of traditional old style conjure hoodoo rootwork. God Bless You All. Momma Starr

Hoodoo Container Works

Dr. Lovebug posted a blog on working with pots in your work. I want to add a little more to the great information he shared. Over the years the containers I have used and or been instructed to use by my elders are, Coffee cans {not just any ole can but a can that has held coffee}, copper pot or bowl, {copper draws prosperity} or an iron pot. I have an ole iron pot that MiMi gave me many years ago. {Check out the picture above.} When I am trying to nail someone or something down the work is started in that iron pot. Iron is powerful because it is almost unbendable. Iron comes from deep in the earth and has its own natural power.

In the ole days folks used cans instead of iron pots because the iron pots were used for cooking and washing. The coffee can is the next best thing and they work. I think it is the power of the coffee that was stored in the can that makes them work so well. Tin is good for works but it is not as strong as iron. It bends and is wonderful for works that are of the “bend over nature”. Copper represents wealth, its shiny and copper draws so any copper bowl or pot would be good for prosperity work. My money pot is an ole copper bowl.

From what I have learned pots, bowls, or cans all work the same if you are trying to do a container work. Momma Starr

Janie's Prayer (Healing Conjure)

I got this prayer from Momma Starr. She has named it Janie's Prayer after her niece so that's what I call it. This prayer is very powerful for healing work and garnering strength in hard times. I thought it was appropriate to share for when you're having those hard times and need the strength to fight life's battles.

Always remember through God all things are possible. Drlovebug

Janie’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, I call on You right now in a special way. It is through Your Power
that I was created.Every breath I take, every morning I wake and every moment of
every hour, I live under Your Power.

Father, I ask You now to touch me with that same power. For if You created me from
nothing, You can certainly recreate me. Fill me with the healing power of Your
Spirit. Cast out anything that should not be in me. Mend what is broken. Root out
any unproductive cells. Open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild any damage
areas. Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection.

Let the warmth of Your healing love pass through my body to make new any
unhealthy areas so that my body will function the way you created it to function.
And Father, restore me to full health in mind and body so that I may serve You the
rest of my life.

I ask this in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen
