Q: What is Hoodoo?
Hoodoo - also known as "Rootwork" or "Conjure" - is a wellness modality and a system of natural magic most prominently found in the American South. Unlike Vodou (or "Voodoo"), it is not a religion, but is a magical practice that couples the use of natural elements such as herbs, roots, minerals, and zoological curios with prayer, intent, and sometimes the intercession of Saints, deities, and spirits of the dead, including ones own ancestors. Though it draws on aspects of American Indian, Northern European, and Jewish Kabbalistic systems, the roots of Hoodoo are steeped in Southern African-American folk traditions and the Congo practices of Africa that they are derived from.
Working with the subtle energies that make up our world, a skilled hoodoo rootdoctor or conjurer can shift the odds for you to find love, heal from past wounds, cultivate strength and financial abundance, find justice, and reach a myriad of other goals as needed or desired in your life.
Q: What’s a Rootworker?
Rootworker. Cunning man. Two-Headed Doctor. These fairly interchangeable terms all refer to someone with a cultivated knowledge of herbs, roots, zoological curios, and other elements AND their effective employment towards attaining practical and spiritual goals. Rootworking most often refers to the specific practice of Hoodoo.
Rootworkers are spiritual doctors able to reach into life’s crevices to help transform conditions and circumstances that practitioners of other professions might not be able to. They are gifted and trained to work with tools from the natural world and powerful spiritual allies to help bring about real change in all of life’s arenas.
Q: What are your qualifications?
I'm someone who is known as being "gifted for the work," having experienced psychic phenomena from an early age including spirit visitations, astral projection, and intuitive insights. I have been a practicing psychic medium and magician for nearly a decade, working with the Tarot and channeling messages from the dearly departed on behalf of the living. As a rootdoctor, I am a graduate of the Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Correspondence Course (#1710G) taught by world-renown ethnomagicologist catherine yronwode, and am a member of the Association of Independent Readers & Rootworkers, having the confidence of an international and eclectic group of colleagues behind me.
Additionally, I am a shamanic practitioner called by the spirits to walk a medicine path, and am an initiated Priest of the Dark Goddess within the Unnamed Path shamanic tradition.
Q: What kinds of work are you especially good at?
- Business & Career Success, including private affairs
- Protection from enemies, adversity, gossip, and outside interference
- Court Case & Legal Work, to gain you favor in the eyes of the law
- Sex, Love, & Attraction, including Queer & LGBT affairs
Q: Do you guarantee results?
Unfortunately, no one can guarantee anything but God. Just as a medical doctor can't guarantee a cure and a lawyer can't guarantee that she will win your lawsuit, with these fields, as with spiritual work, it is important to locate the most qualified individual to handle your case, knowing that they are trained for the job and that he or she will work to the very best of their abilities to accomplish the goals that you’ve mutually agreed upon.
Although conjure and provides practical and time-tested solutions, there are ultimately no 100% guarantees. No practitioner who claims “guaranteed results” should be trusted. What I can guarantee is an honest assessment of your situation, that I will do the work that we agree upon, and that I do my best to catalyze a positive change in the lives of all of my clients.
Q: What are your ethics?
Conjure is about change, transformation, and influence. Just as putting on a particular shirt or cologne reflects your intention to influence and affect, work of this nature is similar, but more direct (and harder to detect). Other than that, I will not aid in causing harm to another without serious due cause and Divine justification.
Q: How much will my Rootwork cost?
Rootworking Service fees reflect the cost of supplies, the complexity of your case, and the time and energy required to carry out the work.
My practice is grounded in integrity. There are no hidden charges or fees. Everything is upfront.
Rootworking Service fees also reflect my desire to provide my clients with the specialized care and attention they deserve, complete with follow-ups and personalized advice regarding their participation in their own goals. I opt to maintain a small clientele, enabling me to perform my clients' work sooner and more thoroughly with after-care attention provided as needed.
When performing Rootworking Services, I do my best to accommodate my clients’ needs by providing financing options for more prolonged work.
After ordering your consultation, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your case and the names, birthdates, and photos of the individuals involved (as available). You will receive an email confirming the receipt of your order and these items, as well as the date by which you can expect to receive your reading via e-mail.
Some readings by phone / skype are available, but they are often booked many weeks in advance.
Q: After my reading, can I ask you more questions regarding my case?
Two follow-up e-mails to provide clarity regarding the information given in your initial reading are available, but additional divination on your case cannot be performed after your reading.
Q: How quickly can I get my next reading?
It is strongly suggested that you do not receive multiple readings on the same issue within a two week span of time.
Q: Will rootwork work if I'm not sure that I believe?
Yes. As long as you do not actively doubt the work, then yes, it can. Doubting the work (or thinking about it obsessively) seriously harms its ability to manifest.
Q: When will you perform my rootwork and / or craft my talismans?
Rootwork and talismans tend to be processed within 7 days. Please keep in mind that I am a medicine person, not a medicine factory, devoting much care and attention to custom-tailored services and tools in alignment with astrological correspondences and timing. If there are unforeseen delays, you will be notified as soon as they appear. Rush / emergency orders for talismans, lights, and rootwork are possible and incur additional fees.
Q: How long should it take to see results?
The results of some workings manifest instantaneously. Others will almost certainly take awhile with a steady, patient hand on the wheel.
An old Hoodoo adage provides a useful timeframe:
- Within 3 days, we seek a sign toward the results we intend to manifest.
- Within 3 weeks, we seek movement toward our goal.
- Within 3 months, the work should be complete.
In my own experience, results often manifest much faster than this, especially when needed, but it’s a wise thing to consider when working on a larger case – especially for works of reconciliation.
Q: How long will you work on my case?
You will be notified as to the exact workings I will be performing (if any) on the situations discussed in your Spiritual Reading & Consultation. Some workings are a one-shot deal while others are performed over a period of weeks or months. Hiring me does not employ me to work on your case in perpetuity.
Q: Can I get a refund or make an exchange / return?
Due to the customized nature of this work, exchanges and returns cannot be accepted and no refunds can be made.
Q: Can you put a curse on (insert name) for me?
Serious (i.e. “Divine”) justification is needed for such measures. It’s somewhat rare for such actions to be necessary and, when they are, they fit only as part of a larger work of healing in which binding a perpetrator or reversing their violence is not enough to mend the situation. Book a Spiritual Reading & Consultation.
Q: What's the best way for me to contact you?
I’m most easily reachable via e-mail at email@example.com and try to answer emails as quickly as possible, though it may sometimes take up to 72 hours.
