The Bible in Conjure: A Two-Headed Book

1 Samuel 10:10-14

New International Version (NIV)
10 When he and his servant arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him; the Spirit of God came powerfully upon him, and he joined in their prophesying. 11 When all those who had formerly known him saw him prophesying with the prophets, they asked each other, “What is this that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?”
12 A man who lived there answered, “And who is their father?” So it became a saying: “Is Saul also among the prophets?” 13 After Saul stopped prophesying, he went to the high place.
14 Now Saul’s uncle asked him and his servant, “Where have you been?”
“Looking for the donkeys,” he said. “But when we saw they were not to be found, we went to Samuel.”

 The Bible is a tricky book. Just like a conjure worker you have to learn how to read between the lines to see what Spirit really is telling you. When you look at this verse it's talking about how the Spirit of God came upon Saul and caused him to prophesy by the Spirit. In this verse we see revelation of the divine gifts and the call to follow them.

The way I look at it is that God will speak a message through other people regardless of how great or small they may look. A person's appearance isn't important but what does matter is the word spoken to you. If I wanted the truth revealed to me I'd pray these verses over the work so that the answer is clear to me. 

Another way to interpret these verses is that God has given you certain gifts that are special to you. Work with those gifts no matter what they be in service of the Highest and you will be led to the high places. They will speak for themselves. Just be quiet and do your job. Don't get stiff in the neck (arrogant).

The verses will mean different things for everybody. If you read one book or chapter alone you'll find that the verses can be prayed over all types of work. This is true of the whole Bible. This is what also makes it confusing sometimes.

So the first thing you need to ask God is "Show me clearly the word." Then open your Bible and read out loud the first three verses. Sometimes the message will be clear as day while at other times it'll be foggy and dense. Sometimes you can't understand what the Bible is saying because you are NOT ready!!! The message is the answer but you have to GROW in order to understand it. At the time you got the message it was meant for you to have but you had to wait and grow so it becomes clear. I hope this makes sense. Drlovebug

Honoring Saint Michael

Hi Everyone,

As y'all know or may have forgotten, yesterday (Sept. 29th) was Saint Michael's special day. Don't forget to light your candles, say your prayers, and refresh your protection works. It's time to give Spirit thanks for fighting your battles and getting you through tough times.

I am very grateful to Saint Michael for his powerful fiery wall of protection around me and those I love. Spirit doesn't ask for a lot. If all you got is a candle, a penny, and a glass of water then give that to Spirit. As long as you give from your heart and show God some thanks then you are doing things right.

Thank you God, my Ancestors, and Saint Michael for having my back. Thank you for being on guard. Thank you Spirit for giving me the courage and strength to fight back even when I was overcome with the Spirit of Fear. Thank you Spirit of God for your discerning eyes and wise words. Thank you for the wisdom in allowing me to strike at the right time and say the right words in their proper place. Thank you God for blessing me and allowing me to act accordingly.

Thank you Spirit of God for tearing down those Walls of Jericho to dust and erecting walls of Victory, your Glorious Presence, & that Fiery Wall of Protection. I thank you with all of my heart and soul and give all the glory to your Spirit that magnifies all things with your GREATNESS. Amen.

In the name of God the Father, God the Son, & God the Holy Ghost. Amen

Big Mama

I want to make this statement because I call the spirit I work with La Madama.

I want to publicly thank my fellow spiritual-workers in the Afro-Cuban traditions for the name "LaMadama". As a traditional American Southern Root-Worker, the "Lady of the House" was a powerful matriarch of African descent who was a reader, mid-wife and powerful spiritual worker and an enduring presence in the spirit family of the southern worker. The names used in the media and racist imagery of this powerful figure is disrespectful and must never be endorsed in any way.

The image of LaMadama, as we all know, comes from the American South. The term "LaMadama" as we all know comes from Cuba. It is with great respect that I call upon the power and spirit of this revered African and African-American spiritual force so loved and respected by American Southern workers for over a century by the name "LaMadama". May we call upon the "Lady of the House"...LaMadama to guide our work and reveal all and any forces that seek to blind our eyes from truth or find our spirits from liberation!

I wanted to share a work I did but I also wanted to clear up a little misconception about this work. Some folks think when you do a beef tongue to shut someone up all you have to do is fill the tongue and wrap it up; this is absolutely NOT right. I'll explain why. If you are going to shut someones mouth and stop them from bothering you then you need to sew the tongue shut. As in sewing their mouth shut! All old school workers are taught this when they are taught shut up work. I'm not sure where this wrapping thing came from but if you want to shut someones lips and stop them from bothering you then you need to sew those lips closed. Common sense will tell you that.
In the old days a lot more was added to the tongue than just personal items and hot stuff. I'm not gonna share that with you because I don't want it used on me. I've added pictures so you can get an idea on how this work is done. Enjoy!

Copy Cat Hoodoo

I recently did a blog post on some sweetening and domination work. Eventually I found my work duplicated elsewhere. The ironic thing about this is that the copycatter is a "spiritual worker." I don't like to stir up mess or anything but I have to speak the truth.

If you are truly who you say you are then you don't need to steal anybody's information just to make yourself look good. I've seen a lot of this over the years with Internet hoodoos. They dig around through HYATT books, Cat's website and course, Old Style Conjure, and other workers searching for information. These same workers either (1) repeat the same information usually word for word or (2) change it around just a little bit to make it seem different even though it's a repeat of stuff that other worker's have said or taught over the years.

I don't believe in cat calling because frankly I think that is childish but I do believe that as conjure workers we have the right to speak out the truth and call out the bs when necessary. The truth of the matter is that if you are truly what you allege let that show in your own work, action, and character. Your actions will speak for themselves. Don't copycat me or any other workers for that matter and then try to make yourself look high and mighty. The bs is obvious especially to anyone who really pays attention and has discernment.

Growing Up Conjure

There is more to conjure work than just doing some spells as some folks call them. This is a living family tradition. We went to the graveyard to honor our kin for Valentines day. My 6 years old great niece paid us in and she paid us out. If you look on Janie's grave your will see a letter laying there that her 6 year old daughter wrote her and brought to her. Honoring your dead is a very large part of conjure but many folks who claim to be conjure workers today only know how to do spells as they call them. My 6 year old great niece knows more of the tradition than most so called conjure workers on-line do today. If it seems like I'm being a bitch then I guess I am because I m tired of seeing folks mixing and moxing a tradition that is my life. We did a family cleansing and reversal while we were there and I think we all felt a load lifted. I hope everyone has a wonderful blessed Valentines Day! Momma Starr

Working the Honeycomb to Draw & Sweeten Love or Other Conditions...


Momma Starr wanted me to share this work on the Old Style Conjure radio show but we didn't have enough time so I am posting a few different ways I was taught to do this work here for y'all pleasure. You'll find the original work on page 131 in the "Old Style Conjure: Working with the Bible" book in the Songs of Soloman section. The Songs of Soloman are very powerful prayers for sweetening work.

During the last radio show we talked about syrup, honey, and the different sweeteners you can use to draw love and sweeten yourself in order to meet the person that is right for you.

As y'all know I am a big fan of working with other sweeteners besides honey especially syrups and powdered sugar because that is the way I was taught. Even though I'm not crazy about honey jars I will work the honey in the best way I can to achieve TOTAL SUCCESS.  I was always taught you should never limit yourself especially when doing conjure work and I'm a big believer in that. Use what you have and make it work for you.  Like all things in old style conjure work there is a time and place for everything. Honeycomb is one of those special items that has its place in Conjure work.

Honeycomb is one of those power items that works like a double edged sword. I love honeycomb because not only does it draw and sweeten but it also locks down your work. Think about it. Honey comb draws what you need because it's sweet but also nails down your work because the comb is made out of wax. Wax will hold any prayers, roots, herbs or petitions you load into it. Beeswax will hold the work together just like it holds the honey which makes it strong.

The same goes for dirt dauber nest. When you find a dirt dauber nest try to collect it without breaking it apart because like honeycomb that little dirt dauber's nest will hold the power in your prayer petitions, conjure roots, special herbs, and ingredients. Each time you pray over the dirt dauber nest that you've loaded with special ingredients, it will make the power in your work grow stronger with a heavy hand. Your domination work will pack a punch. Of course you'll work this packet somewhat different from the honeycomb but you get the idea.

So now let's talk about the actual work. Take the honeycomb out of a honey jar and spread the comb out on a white plate. Place your personal petitions, photo of yourself, or photo of the target in the middle of the plate with your conjure herbs and roots, prayers, and special ingredients. Fold your prayers, bible verses, and ingredients around your work into a packet. Squeeze the honeycomb together around your love packet to lock it down.

Now you got a strong little conjure packet that you can work as is or incorporate as part of other work. You can place your love packet inside a red bowl full of sugar, herbs, and power roots. Another way to work this packet is to place it inside a jar with syrup and other ingredients. Whenever you need to heat up your work burn a tealight, stick candle, or vigil in the work. These are some of the first sweetening works I was taught by Momma Starr. It truly is old style conjure work that you can stick like honey in a photo packet to any sweet drawing work you need done whether for love, money, prosperity, or total success. Good luck in your sweetening work! Let us know how it turns out...Drlovebug

Happy New Year: Let's Start the Year Fresh...

Hey Guys,

I just want to say Happy New Years to all of y'all...I am so happy 2012 has passed. At first I wasn't ready just yet to end the year but I am ready to bring on the new year and claim my blessings.

I'll be frank here and say that 2012 was a hell of a year for me because it brought a lot of changes. I'm sure most of you would agree but now we have to let go of the old so we can bring in the new.

I feel so GOOD and REFRESHED...To put it in better terms I am BLESSED and FORTIFIED for this year!!! Part of the reason I feel this way is because I'm a New Year's baby (yes New Year's is my birthday) but there's more to it. God is bringing in a lot of good change that will benefit everyone.

Now is the time to start your cleansings. It doesn't matter if you are late in the month because anytime is a good time to cut out the mess out of your life and throw it to the West! Cut and clear the past so you can move forward into the future. The whole month of January is good for doing conjure work for a fresh new start. NOW is the time to begin money drawing work, prosperity work, and any "job" where you are looking for growth whether that be love, money, success, you name it.

Plant your seeds with faith and they will GROW!!! Take the time to thank God and your Spirits for all the blessings you received in previous years. This can be hard sometimes but you need to do it so you'll continue to get your blessings. You can start small and build your way up...

If you feel you have nothing to be thankful think again. The fact that you are alive with your HEALTH and able to read this blog post is the greatest gift provided by God which is LIFE. Most of you have a roof over your head, food on the table, lights, and other amenities that are easily taken for granted. These are blessings that should always be remembered.

When you learn to put your attitude into gratitude that is when you'll see your prosperity work rise to the next level. The best way to check if your money drawing work is truly working is to take a good look at your life before, during, and after you started doing work. Look at your situation through these three phases.

If you notice any improvement in your circumstances no matter how big or small then your petitions are being answered. If things remained the same without any change then something is wrong. Maybe one area of your life is thriving while another part is withering. That can happen which is natural but when you don't see any movement in your life then yes something is not right that you're not addressing properly. If the machine is broke as they say then fix it!

This is where people go wrong with resolutions and prayer petitions. Before you grow those seeds that you're planting in the garden you have to clear out old weeds, 'ROOTS', and clear the way so your plant will have room to sprout. If you don't strip away the clutters in your harvest you'll never reap the fruits of your sow. Plain and simple.

I am not preaching but just telling the truth as it is. So think about all this as you start to make big movements for this year 2013. I end this post by wishing all y'all a very Happy & Prosperous New Year!!! Drlovebug
