Blue Candles for Money

Most people learning hoodoo on the Internet know for prosperity work to use green candles because they symbolize growth. I learned to work this way and it's great but I also learned about blue candles which you don't hear much about on the Internet.

Blue is one of the strongest colors you can use to draw money because when you fix a blue candle for money work it will remove blocks over your finances. You can work with a blue candle or a blue Money House Blessing vigil. It has a Native American warrior on it.

When I petition Black Hawk to remove money blocks I burn the House Blessing vigil inside his pot with my petition, bible verse, and herbs loaded into the vigil. Every time I work with him this way I see an increase in my blessings. Black Hawk will not draw money to you but he'll protect your money. He's also a fighter so when I offer him a blue vigil he uses it to bust up all blocks holding my money in a bind.

Some workers will tell you that you can't work with blue or purple candles to attract money to you but I disagree. Here's why. Blue cleanses your money. Purple gives you power over your finances. If you want to be on top of your finances you have to protect what you got and control your money. Blue and purple candles will help you do just that.

To draw money to you get a blue, white, and purple candle. Ask Spirit to remove blocks over your money with the blue candle, to answer your prayer with the white candle, and to help you control your finances with the purple candle. Write your personal petition in the wax of the white candle and load it. Load the other candles with your petitions and herbs.

Light the candles in a straight line with the blue on one side, the purple on another, and the white candle in the middle. This will help you with your money. Drlovebug

Petitioning Saint Michael

St Michael Nailing Down the Devil
In my last post I spoke about honoring Saint Michael on his birthday. Here we're going to talk a little about how to petition him. Most folks know he can be petitioned for protection work but Saint Michael can do many things. Since he's called on to put the fiery wall of protection around you we'll get into that.
To do simple fiery wall of protection work write your names, ALL MY LOVED ONES, and a petition in the wax of a red candle. Add your protection herbs and roots and dress the candle with holy oil. Hold the candle to your mouth and ask Saint Michael to protect you. Petition God to place a fiery wall of protection around the family that can't be crossed. Light the fixed red candle on a photo of you and your loved ones.
Everyday state your petition as the candle burns. If using a stick candle burn it in sections for 7 days. On day number 9 place the photo under a statue of Saint Michael. You can also make a small conjure prayer packet of red flannel with the photo, bible verse burnt to ash, and three special ingredients that will lend power to that packet. When you tie up your packet place it under your statue so St Michael will stand on guard. If you have a photo frame place the packet behind the photo.
This work is simple but it brings strong results. If you really want to learn protection work or how to do justice work I highly recommend Starr's mini courses. They are jam packed full of information that you won't find elsewhere. Good luck with petitioning Saint Michael. Drlovebug

Honoring Saint Michael: September 29th

I just want to remind everyone that Saint Michael's day of celebration is September 29th. Any day is good to serve Spirit but it's good to remember your spiritual protectors on their holy days because that's what the saints are. The saints protect your blessings, pray with you when you serve God, and bless you when you most need it. We have to always be thankful to God for what we have but you have to remember his servants too. They work hard when doing God's work and stand by your side.
I honor Saint Michael because he is so special to me. He has helped me found strength in trials that I never thought I had so I give all due credit and thanks to Saint Michael. He is a protector of my family.
You don't have to do a big elaborate setup when you honor the Spirit. If you can give some flowers and a vigil candle do that. If all you got is a tealight then light that tealight to the Spirit. Give whatever you can even if it's just prayer. Give thanks to God and show the Saints how much you love them. Prayer from the heart is the most powerful offering to Spirit.
As you honor the Saints on their holy days that is the perfect time to renew your vows to Spirit. Thank the Saints for their blessings you received during the year and ask them to continue showing favor in your life. Find something to be grateful about because you have a lot of be thankful for even if it's just being alive. I know this is hard sometimes even for me but everyone has something to be grateful about in their lives. Find that and cherish it!
Since I'm writing about Saint Michael let's talk about honoring him. The simplest thing you can do is light a red candle to him dressed with holy oil and pray. Anytime I pray I always start with 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Mary's, and a Glory Be with a revocation. Then I say my prayers to Saint Michael and thank him for having my back for the year. I remind Saint Michael that I'll always need him and appreciate his help in my life. This is to show Spirit that I know what Spirit does in my favor and I appreciate it. I always count my blessings as best as I can.
Some saints can be really picky about who they work with but Saint Michael can be petitioned by anyone whose heart is in the right place. If you have never worked with him before but feel called try honoring him on his birthday and see what happens. Drlovebug

The Holy Family & Your Ancestors for Peaceful Home

The Holy Family can be petitioned for any need you have but I'll talk about how to work with them to protect the family right along with your ancestors. I want to mention here that Family (yes with a capital F) is really important to me! I say this because Family is all that you have in the world.

Your foundation begins with the family. Your roots come from your ancestors. This is why it's really important to honor and work with your ancestors. Some workers will tell you that you aren't supposed to work with your dead and that it's only acceptable to honor them but I'll tell you that's a bunch of hogwash. I'm not going to rehash this argument here but I'm making a point.

Because your ancestors are the roots of your tree you have to honor them because you come from them. When you pay respects to your dead you are honoring your roots and your heritage. This is important for everyone especially people of Colour. Regardless of your ethnic background honor your dead people and show them some love because they deserve it. By paying due respect to your ancestors you are honoring your family which leads me to my next point about protecting the family.

Nobody's family is perfect. There'll always be ups and downs but some situations that happen in families are completely uncalled for. That's where conjure work comes in. I'm a big believer in working on the family to make sure everything runs smooth. I will do everything it takes to protect my family because they are an extension of my well-being. I'm sure most of y'all feel the same way.

I used to hesitate a lot when it came to locking down the bs in my family through conjure work. I felt sorry for them because I didn't want to go 'to that level' so to speak. I figured things would work out and I decided to remain in the corner. That's until I had it. Sometimes as a part of protecting your family you have to make a step forward and put your foot down where it won't move.

The most powerful way you can work Conjure to bring peace in the family is by petitioning your ancestors. You don't even have to light a candle or throw together a bunch of roots and herbs. Just a simple call to your Ancestors to get their attention and a strong petition so they can simmer the mess down. I do this when I need an extra hand to manage my kinfolks.

For those of y'all that need something to work with tear out Isaiah 26 V 3 from your bible. Write "PEACE BE STILL" or a similar petition on the Bible verse. Burn the bible verse to ash and load a white vigil candle with the ash. Don't add any names or personal effects to this candle. Light the vigil on your ancestor altar and state the verse out loud with your petition. You'll notice a difference immediately when you petition your ancestors esp in family matters. Here's the verse for your pleasure:

Isaiah 26:3

3 You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.

This is really simple and effective. As a part of protecting the family and keeping peace in the home you can also petition the Holy Family. Jesus, Mary, & Joseph make the Holy Family. They are God's example of how a family should love and treat one another. You can petition them to be a model for your loved ones so your home will always be a happy one. Not only will the Holy Family keep a peaceful home but they will also bring prosperity to the home and help you count your blessings.

To petition the Holy Family find a picture that you can work with. If you have the nativity scene with Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in the manger that's perfect for this work! A lot of folks have this in their home as part of Christmas decorations so check your pantry. Hold the picture to your mouth and say your prayers. Ask the Holy Family to protect your loved ones and bring prosperity in the home.

Write your petition and any special prayers for the family on a picture of you and your loved ones. Burn the photo to ash and load the ash into a blue vigil candle. You don't have to use vigils. I like them for different reasons. Dress your candle with olive oil, a power root, and a peaceful herb. To top of your work sprinkle a little powdered sugar on the vigil candle.

Place the Holy Family picture in the living room or kitchen and burn the blue vigil on top of it. You can also prop the photo on the hearth as a decorative piece and burn the vigil next to it. When you start working with the Holy Family you will feel it immediately.

I wish y'all much prosperity, success, and peace in the Home with conjure work. Protect what is yours and lock it down...Drlovebug

Our Ancestors

My family has always honored our dead folks. We decorate their graves on Birthdays and Holidays. We keep their graves clean; when things are going on in our lives you might find us at the graveyard visiting them. When there is a get together they are there with us because we talk about old times and the things that have past. For me this is how it has always been. When we say our nightly prayers they are also included in them. For a long time I thought every family was like mine concerning their dead. I have since learned better.

Some will say that you shouldn’t petition your ancestors to help you when you need help. I was taught after God they are the ones you should be talking to. If I have a big issue for myself or a client I will petition my ancestors to help solve the problem. I don’t force them I ask them. If they don’t want to help then I ask them what I can do to fix the problem. For me there is nothing wrong with this. They are my blood and I come from them. They struggled so I could get where I am today. We should never forget those who came before us.

I don’t petition them for every little thing, just when I feel I need a little extra help. I honor them daily with a prayer before I go to sleep, on Mondays I refresh them with cool water, prayer and a vigil. Sometimes more is added. More folks need to honor their dead and remember them and the struggles they went through so they could have a better life. They will protect you and yours when it is needed. They will make wrongs right or help push through a job that seems impossible. I think it is disrespectful to just forget about our dead.

You don’t have to have a huge space set up for them, maybe just a cluster of photos of those who have past. I have a small bit of graveyard dirt from my ancestors in South Carolina mixed with a little from my folks buried here in Texas. It pulls them together. Some will say you shouldn’t have graveyard dirt from your ancestors out; but for my ancestors it works. You always have to do what is right for you. Being raised in family it is the right thing for me. The photo above is of my ancestor altar and yes it has some work going on it. I think it is important for us to honor our ancestors and keep them near us. Momma Starr

Oh My! Let’s Talk Conjure/Root Doctor

For sure there is more than one way to do the work it depends on where you are from. This little blog post is not so much about the work as it is how folks perceive what a conjure worker does. This is just my opinion and we know what they say about opinions. It seems that most workers now day’s focus on the work only; meaning love work, money work, and so on and so on. So folks who have never been around a traditional worker are under the misconception that this is all there is to being a conjure worker or root doctor as some are called. It is much more than that. This is where you can tell the difference between an old worker and someone who was self -taught or learned from books and such.

The first thing is that you want find many old workers on-line period. I was bullied into putting up my website, conned might be a better term; by a few of my students, my children and my grandchildren.  Since I started learning at the age of 18 I never advertised my work. I worked by word of mouth only. I never hid what I did my house was full of my altars. When we were growing up our Mama had some funny ways, “so we thought”. We had to take our shoe’s off at the door, you couldn’t play with the broom, we cleaned the graves of our dead folks, you learned your Bible and you learned to pray, the photos of our dead were never allowed with the living; my Grandma said it’s because it would make the dead hunger for their blood, we have always taken photos of our dead, my Mama doctored us or treated us as some call it. The list goes on and on. Then at 18 I was taught how to do hands on cleansing and healings working with candles and prayers.

I was taught healing before I was ever taught to do any of the work. I think and from what I have seen and been taught most conjure workers are truly healers first and foremost; the work just goes along with it. There are customs that are carried through the family. It comes natural because we have lived it every day of our lives. We have a New Year’s Eve custom that I was taught as a child, my whole family does it every New Year’s Eve. The house is cleaned; the porch and the stoops are cleaned a new broom is bought and left on the front stoop. Right before midnight everyone gathers at the front door, if you are in the house then you go out the back door. Right at midnight one of the male family members takes the new broom into the house. It has to be a male or the home will have bad luck all year. I always wanted to be the one who carried the broom. Why do we do this? I don’t know it is something my family has always done. The point is that most folks from the south do some of these same things in their families. It is more to being a conjure worker than just doing love work and such; it is a way of life in everything you do. Some folks will never understand that. It takes more to being a Traditional Conjure worker than being about to put some roots and herbs together for a job. Momma Starr

WHAT! The Bible As A Spell Book

I read something I never thought I would see. This has nothing to do with Witchcraft or spell work. I don’t really care what others believe; that is their business. Some folks who are very dear to me are Witches. This has to do with speaking out of the side of your mouth. I think that if you profess to be a solid Christian and you look down on folks that aren’t then you really need to watch what you put out there on the internet. It might bite you in the ass if your head swells too much.  I leave it up to y’all to decide. Do you think a Traditional Conjure worker who professes to be a rock solid Christian would use the words “Old Testament Spell’s”?

The thing is that when you are busy sweeping around other folks doors when you should be sweeping around your own SHIT happens. Don’t throw stones at other folks when it is obvious that you yourself once practiced a religion you now look down on. I’m just sick of all this “Bull Shit” and all these so called big bad workers. Before you say well Starr you use the word “spell”; yes I do I had to in order to even get my little website into the search engines. The thing is that 90% of the folks on-line who claim to be Traditional home grown workers, and who grew up with conjure wouldn’t know squat if they hadn’t taken “Cat’s” on-line course. Her course list of students is on-line anyone can look at it. It’s easy to tell who is a teacher’s student by the way they work and by the way they talk about the work. It’s also easy to tell an old school worker by what they teach and the way they talk about the work.

 I’m saying folks need to be themselves. I mean no insult to anyone here; but if your family came from another country where they don’t have a clue what conjure is and you are the first born in this country then you were not raised in a home that practiced conjure. Be proud of what your family has taught you; don’t take someone else’s heritage to make a buck. I’m sure some want like this but I’m tired of these Holier than Thou folks who think they are better than other folks but have walked in the same shoes as the ones they NOW look down on.  Momma Starr

"Them Bones & Them Cards" NOLA class...

Join Momma Starr in her “Them Bones & Them Cards” Conjure class in New Orleans where Starr, a renowned old style conjure worker, Spiritualist Reverend, Divinely Anointed Prophetess, and Two Head Doctor extraordinaire with 30+ years’ experience, will teach about “Working with Spirit” through divination with the playing cards and throwing the bones. She created a special conjure playing card deck with instruction book that she'll teach all participants to work with in reading the playing cards and listening to your Ancestors. At the folk magic festival you can purchase Starr's card kit and learn how to actually put it to work during this special class.
As a part of enrolling in the course each participant will receive a free complementary booklet written and published by Starr titled “Old Style Conjure: Working with Spirit” that will empower you with secret knowledge and information combined with what you acquire from the class so you can truly be your own reader and spiritual worker.
Much has been said about throwing the bones and reading the playing cards. There’s too much speculation but not enough good honest communication on how to do the work the right way. Starr will set the record straight on how old conjure workers read “them cards” and work “them bones” as part of her theme “Working with Spirit.” She’ll teach all attending HANDS ON conjure work with throwing the bones and working the playing cards to draw victory, how to find the blocks keeping you in a bind, and accomplish total success by working with your Ancestors and listening to Spirit.

As a part of her “Working with Spirit” theme Momma Starr will guide all attendees to reading the cards and throwing the bones for themselves and others using her 30 years of vast knowledge, experience, professional expertise, and HANDS ON in-your-face teachings. Take advantage of the information being presented and learn how to throw them bones and work them cards from a “worker’s worker.” As a sneak peek one of the tricks you may learn with the playing cards and bones is how to work with the power of the Crossroads in your bone and card reading setups to open/close doors. With the Crossroads you can draw blessed conditions and the desires of your heart and remove blocks, kill jinxes, and turn your bad luck into profitable good luck. Are you ready to take your success of Conjure work up a few notches? “Them Bones & Them Cards” class is the solution to your spiritual fix.

What most folks online don’t know is that reading the playing cards and throwing the bones are a hidden work in and of themselves. Old workers have always known that when the cards show sumthin’ ain’t right or when “them bones” reveal trouble you can work with these tools to turn the trick and run them devils off as you work with Spirit. Momma Starr will share a few secrets from her bag of tips and tricks never before revealed to help you bring power, divine wisdom, and spiritual discernment to your consultations.

Here you’ll learn how to be your own reader and worker. This is a conjure class for everyone because you’ll leave with knowledge about Spirit that you can apply immediately to your spiritual work and arsenal whether you’re a novice or experienced spiritual worker. Learn from Momma Starr, considered by many the best in the business, and arm yourself with information that’ll change your whole outlook on working with Spirit and becoming your own spiritual worker. Join Conjure Crossroads in NOLA and enroll today! Drlovebug
