The word Hoodoo is used to describe magico-spiritual work consisting of
magic spells and the use of talismans, mojos and/or potions by a person to
bring certain benefits to him/herself. It is synonymous with Conjure, or
HOODOO is not to be confused with Voodoo which is a religion whereas
Hoodoo is a form of African-influenced traditional folk magic, prevalent
mostly in the deep South. Many separate folk magic traditions have
influenced Hoodoo and its practices derive not only from West African folk
magic but also from the Native American and European magical records
(Gallic / Celtic etc).
In the traditional African belief system the goal of a successful life is
to achieve balance and harmony while striving for success and abundance.
Since the creation all around us is bountiful in all things and all things
have divine creative and magical powers within themselves, their inherent
'ally" (Spirit) can be called upon to help us bring success in our path.
In the Voodoo religion a priest or priestess calls upon the Orisha or Loa
to intercede on their behalf through offerings made to Them at an
established and consecrated altar. Voodoo priests and priestesses keep a
temple room in their homes and build a relationship with "their Spirits"
(Loa &/or Orisha) over many many years of service at the Altars.
A Hoodoo or Root Doctor practices folk magic by reaching for, speaking to
and working with the allies in all of nature while remaining conscious of
the role of the Divine in all of life. Hoodoo works!! Both Voodoo and
Hoodoo are practiced in accordance with the will of Heaven. Therefore
neither Voodoo or Hoodoo is satanic or heathen. Both are based on a belief
in God. Hoodoo consists mostly of working time honored magic formulas
passed on from person to person.
Many years ago, I completed a long apprenticeship and became initiated as
a Priestess of Voodoo. However my very first teachers were Hoodoo or Roots
people (often called Hoodoo Doctors). My first teacher was a Root Doctor
(Obeah) from the Bahamas. Another of my Hoodoo teachers was a wonderful
root worker in rural western Louisiana. Merlina StarHorse, (Star Horse was
the name given to her by her Native American guides) was both a root
worker and a "traiteuse" (healer) in the tradition of French Acadiana. She
came from a long line of French Creoles of Color, Native Americans and
Cajun roots people. Merlina and I stayed friends throughout the years. In
2012 through the intercession of a mutual friend she blessed me with her
magical records, her "cahie´ magiq" and asked me to continue her work by
producing the highest quality line of Hoodoo 'fixins" as she would have
herself crafted them. In absolute fidelity to her instructions and in her
honor, I proudly present:
