Odd Man Out

I have been told many times by students and others how lucky I am to have been raised in a home where conjure work is built into our way of life. Yesterday I learned two things while I was attending the funeral for my sons father-in-law; one is my family was differently raised different and two Conjure is a living Tradition. Folks can debate about it all they want to but REAL Conjure is a living tradition.

I have never really been to a funeral outside of my family or folks who were raised as we were. There is a big big difference. I could never understand why some folks are jealous of me or feel threatened by my knowledge on-line. I never saw a difference until yesterday. Even my daughter noticed. No one gave him notes of love, or his coffee, or cigarettes, there was nothing; No one paid to enter the graveyard, stuck money in his pocket. If this means I’m backwards, odd, or very lucky to have been raised in a home where conjure was an everyday practice, then I now gladly wear that coat.

Conjure is more than the work, its built into your life. It is a living tradition; a way of life. I finally see you can teach the working part of conjure but in order to really understand it you have to live it. This was a big eye opener for me and I will never look at my family the same. I have always been proud of my ancestors, but today I look at them in a whole new light. When so many were running to change their lives because they didn’t want to be considered “backwards”, they wanted to become modern; my family held on to the old ways with both hands and dug in.

Healing Power of God

Exodus 15 V 26

26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”

God is a powerful healer whose Spirit cleanses, heals, and uplifts us. Because the Spirit of God is in the Word (Bible) you can work with your Bible to heal illnesses and crossed conditions. The first thing you have to do before you even start healing work is believe that you are already healed. This is the first step. Your faith in the healing process makes the work successful.

No matter how bad the situation is or overwhelming the blocks your faith is what matters. Most of the time the biggest block to healing is us. We stand in the way of our own healing because of fears, worry, doubt, and inner turmoil. As humans we hold on to stuff that needs to be let go. Stop thinking about the past and let that mess go so you can move forward. It’s old mess from the past like unforgivingness, hate, resentment, and grudges that creates stress, depression, disease, and all kinds of negative conditions that plague us today. Let it go so you can be productive in life.

That’s why I included Exodus 15 V 26 because it does two things: (1) you are petitioning God to lead you in the path that’s right for you, and (2) claiming God’s healing as yours. By working the bible verse you are asking God to show you what you cannot see and uplift you where you need uplifting. That’s the best way I can explain it.

To do this healing work, find you a white candle. Tear out Exodus 15 V 26. Write your full name and the condition on the bible verse. Burn the verse to ash and sprinkle the ash on the white candle going away from you. Hold the white candle and a photo of yourself in your hands and ask God to fill you with healing power. Speak out loud from your heart about the situation and why you need healing. God hears all prayer but stating your petition out loud will help you build power in yourself and the work so it is a total success.

Dress your head with olive oil in a cross shape. Light the white candle on top of your photo and state the bible verse with your petition at least three times in the name of the Holy Trinity. If you have personal prayers you can also work with those.

Everyday state your petition with bible verse three times over the candle. Do this work when the hands of the clock are going down to remove the negative condition…Drlovebug
