Hoodoo, conjure, rootwork, etc.
Do we have any practitioners on the DL? I dabble in it a bit (mostly candle magick), but I'm in a position now where I need to put a hex on someone. I'm thinking something along the lines of hot foot powder...not like a death curse or anything.
Anyone here ever jinxed someone? Tips?

Using magical arts to harm someone comes back to you three times worse. Real witches live by this rule. Anyone who uses magic to harm someone is opening themselves up for trouble.
Anyone who believes in this BS is no better than those who believe in religion. It's 2013-why the fuck does anyone still believe that "magic" or "witchcraft" is real? Get a life.
Magick is real and it works. If you have never had it manifest in your life then you can only speak to what you know, r2, but please don't call it bullshit or tell those of us who do know differently to "get a life". It is our life. There is a boomerang effect when using Magick and I try to follow an ethical rule set but you can't be afraid to take care of business. Understanding and accepting that there are consequences to anything and accepting the responsibility for those actions is good enough for me. Using hotfoot powder in a conjure spell indicates to me that you want to cause your enemy physical discomfort. I'm not down with that. Perhaps a better way to go would be to do a Go Away and Stay Away conjure. It doesn't involve any harm or discomfort to the person you are working, they simply leave your life. You can google to find a passel of information on Hoodoo. Just be advised that a fool and his money are soon parted. Think about making your own powders or oils instead of buying them online. It also imbues and charges the magick with your own personal power. good luck and tread carefully my friend.
What is this "magick" shit? Do you think adding a "k" makes it less ludicrous? It's still childish wishful thinking.
I'm not here to debate Muggles. Isn't it time for you to pray to your Bobble Head Jesus to smite all of us devil worshippers, r5?
Karma is bullshit. I used magic on a former partner, got him deported. Next month I won the lottery.
I don't judge, r7. Also, can I borrow a few bucks:)?
I used hot foot on my neighbor and have seen neither hide nor hair of him in a week!

I'm curious with R5. Is there a particular reason beyond some whinging pedantry that, let's say, a certain class of people will always insist of "magick" and "faerie" and "vampyre", as if archaisms are actually going to transport you back to a time when believing in shit like this was relatively less ridiculous?
|by BenZ||reply 13||07/31/2013|
I'm with R12 - whether you believe that your God will "smite" someone, or that your Harry Potter homebrew can hurt soneone, you're a nasty cunt. The basic moral law is Do No Harm.
|by BenZ||reply 14||07/31/2013|
Isn't the answer obvious, r13? We can't spell:)

When I was a kid, I was convinced I could cause things to happen if I pointed my finger and concentrated hard enough. It's because I saw Billy Mumy do it on the Twilight Zone. I was sure I could send somebody to the cornfield.
Kids had no power in the world in those days. We weren't coddled and helicoptered. We were seen and not heard. We felt powerless and believed in magical thinking. Adults who believe in Magick and fairies and spirit are people who feel powerless in their lives. It makes them feel as if they matter when they light candles and recite some phrases, thinking they're going to make something happen.
|by BenZ||reply 16||07/31/2013|
You know, in the old days, if a witch betrayed her coven, they would kill her.
|by BenZ||reply 17||07/31/2013|
Have you ever heard of invoking the spirit? It's when you call him... Manon. It's like... it's like you take him into you. It's like he fills you. He takes everything that's gone wrong in your life and makes it all better again.
|by BenZ||reply 18||07/31/2013|
That's because no one has shown you how, r16. Please don't project your own lack of intellectual curiosity, sense of helplessness and fear of failure onto the rest of us.
|by BenZ||reply 19||07/31/2013|
You think quoting from The Craft derides us, r18? There is more truth in that portrayal of witches than you could ever imagine. But, then that's your problem. No imagination. Or sense of wonder.
|by BenZ||reply 20||07/31/2013|
If any witch here can make me win the contest I crave to win, I will preach witchery for the rest of my livelong days, of which (caveat) there must be thousands. But not too many thousands. Just enough thousands. Like maybe 10-12 thousands. Anything more is greedy, right? And tiresome.
|by BenZ||reply 21||07/31/2013|
Indeed, r16. Magic and religion serve much the same purpose in giving the weak and powerless a feeling of control over their own lives and the illusion that they are secretly superior to their "enemies" and those in positions of power over them.
|by BenZ||reply 22||07/31/2013|
I will suck a hundred devil cocks if you prove your witchery.
Gawd, my mouth's already watering. Devils - they're uncut, right?
|by BenZ||reply 23||07/31/2013|
And some come here and bore us with their "pointless bitchery" as a means to work out personal issues, r22. Yeah, I'm looking at you.
|by BenZ||reply 25||07/31/2013|
I'm not an organ grinder's monkey, r24. I don't dance just because you can play a Tarantella. And I bet you don't even know what that is. Peasant.
|by BenZ||reply 26||07/31/2013|
It's a dance. Yes, even non-witches own Tom Waits records.
Never said or meant you were a monkey, just dared you to PROVE YOUR WITCHERY!
This is a dance too.
|by BenZ||reply 27||07/31/2013|
But I am bewitching you. Right under your nose. And you took way too long to respond to my post. Google is magic too, isn't it, r27?
|by BenZ||reply 28||07/31/2013|
The thing about being a grown up who doesn't believe in magic any more, R15, is that I don't need to "feel" superior, since I already know that I am.
|by BenZ||reply 29||08/01/2013|
so hoodoo is voodoo without the catholic influence?

lol. those ancient magical rules that date back around 150 years. not saying there are not weird forces out there but wicca,druids,and the many other psudo-magics out there are about as old and true as scientology. though nowhere near as sexy.

All I know about magick is that it's powerless when it comes to weight loss, since most of its pracktioners seem to be about 400 lbs.

The K is used in Magick to distinguish it from sideshow trickery magic.
Don't cast spells against your enemies. Karma is a bitch, and what you do will come back to haunt you.
As for that Bible quote, that is your path, not others. Respect others choice regarding religion. If you don't believe in a certain path, fine. We do, however.

I guess that's kind of like calling bullshit "bullshit" to distinguish it from horseshit, huh?

Yes, you do because you are idiots—not something I'm terribly inclined to respect.

I honestly don't get what people like r36, r38, and so on get from coming into a thread like this.
|by BenZ||reply 39||08/01/2013|
Newsflash, r38. WE DON"T CARE. The only thing you appear to believe in is your own hubris. You should check out Thelema. It might be right up your alley. Look what it did for L. Ron Hubbard:)
|by BenZ||reply 40||08/01/2013|
r37's post is very funny. Funny because it's true. And these close minded non-beliebers don't even know why.
|by BenZ||reply 41||08/01/2013|
r38? Are you there? Are you googling like mad to look up Thelema so you can post an acidic reply to put us in our places? At least we have sunshiny faces. That's because we actually get some fun out of life. And not at the expense of others. Ironic isn't it? We work magick and don't feel the need to laud it over anyone else.
|by BenZ||reply 42||08/01/2013|
It's fun to read about how gullible people are, and to what extremes they will go for a little attention.
|by BenZ||reply 43||08/01/2013|
Right back at you, r43. Sort of like going into a thread where you are unfamiliar with the subject matter and posting useless and pointless opinions on that which you know nothing of? That sure fits my definition of "attention seeker".

r38, I respect your beliefs even though you may believe in something like Christianity. If you're an atheist, I respect that too. Unfortunately, history books are filled with examples of tolerance NOT being the norm for much of Western civilization's history.
Freedom of religion, it's a good thing.
As for getting on threads like this, r39, we are standing up for what we believe. Re-read paragraph one of this post. Someone made it an issue, we are answering the nastiness brought up. Just like anyone else would do if their beliefs were being trashed.

Funny how people say they don't believe in spiritualism, witchcraft and Voodoo, yet they seem to fear us just the same, if silently. Just sayin'.

With all due respect, what the fuck is "rootwork"?
|by BenZ||reply 49||08/02/2013|
Our bodies are the homes of our souls.
Clothes are the homes for our bodies.
Homes are built to keep us in and out of nature.
The earth is the home to all living things.
Somewhere in all of that, there is an energy that we feel that comes form the earth and affects us in ways that we cannot perceive.
Maybe the wiccans and witches are working on reading those energies.

If I wish something positive instead of negative for an enemy, will it come back to me 3x?
|by BenZ||reply 51||08/02/2013|
r51, YES!!!!! Better yet, actually DO something positive, if not for your enemy, for someone.
It's similar to the Christian thing about praying for the enemy, turning the other trick.
|by BenZ||reply 52||08/02/2013|
R52, it's "turning the other cheek". Turning another trick is something entirely different.

Troll-dar R4 for a really wild example of psychosis at work.
Either that or, well, a troll. I kind of hope the latter, because the former is just pathetic, complete with the insistence that it is laughing hysterically at those of us who mock it.

Really, r58? You haven't posted an opinion yay or nay in this thread. You are the worst thing to happen to DL in a long time. A troll-dar stalker. Talk about psychosis. Shit or get off the pot. Join the conversation or shut the fuck up. And yeah, I'm laughing at you, coward.

People's response to witches, wicca etc is interesting.
I use to do a lot of volunteer work with a local HIV/AIDS not for profit service provider. The local Episcopal Church provided the agency space.
The agency had all sorts of volunteers and clients. Including clergy - gay, lesbian and straight. We also had three men who self-identified as witches.
Two things I noticed. Everyone was respectful and didn't bring their religion into the service aspect of the agency. But at social settings, breaks etc. lots of eye rolling when the three men who were witches would mention a Wicca practice they had done. No eye rolling when the clearly mentioned something about a Sunday Service. No eye rolling from the clergy - but lots from the Sunday go to church folks.
Which I found pretty funny. Christianity is not "magick"? The bible is full of "magick". It gives JK Rowling a run for her money.
The second thing is the witches would give the most powerful and embracing invocations during memorial services. Especially at services where the deceased biological family had turned their backs on him - because he was gay and had AIDS.
Denying traditional families and religions - and giving us all permission to embrace our family of choice was and continues to be a very powerful message. It is delivered in away so totally different from my Christian upbringing I found it very comforting and empowering.
Don't get me wrong. I'm still someone who needs to "see it on a spreadsheet" in order to believe it. For healing, comfort and community in times of need - give me a witch any day.
