A Funeral And.....Bigfoot

Today I attended the funeral of a very good man, the grandfather of my best friend. The deceased was Chickasaw and as such a representative of the Chickasaw tribe came and did a very brief ceremony. It was perhaps the most beautiful funeral I have ever been to. I literally got chills down my spine when the man began chanting, shaking the rattle, and playing a flute. He led us in the ceremony called the last handshake, where the loved ones of the deceased say their last goodbye by gathering a handful of dirt and scattering it on the casket. I don't think I've ever attended a service where people were encouraged to take an active role, say for when I was a pallbearer at my grandfather's funeral.

I walked away with the feeling that most Americans were missing out on a unique experience. The funeral is the last transitional ceremony associated with human life. The standard funeral just doesn't seem to be adequate. It's too solemn, too full of the feelings of loss and mourning. People are made to be outsiders, witnesses, disconnected from death. By being encouraged to be active participants, I at least felt the sadness lift off me and I knew then and there that my friend's grandfather was at peace. It was truly a unique experience and a memory I will treasure.

After the ceremony I had the pleasure of speaking to the man who led the Chickasaw ceremony. I had the strong feeling I had seen him before. While talking to him a part of mind was scrambling to place his face. In a flash of excitement his identity dawned on me. I had seen him on t.v.

His name is Tim Harjo and he participated in the documentary, Bigfootville which aired on the Travel Channel.

I asked him all kinds of questions and he happily replied. We discussed ghosts, deer women, and of course bigfoot. He gave me his contact information and encouraged me to contact him if I was ever in the area.

So I thought I would share my experiences this day. It was truly the most memorable funeral I have attended, and who knows? Perhaps I might in the near future tag along with Mr. Harjo in search of native spirits or bigfoot.

Coast to Coast AM - UFO Crashes with Kevin D. Randle (6/1/2010)

I am very much anticipating reading Kevin Randle's new book, Crash: When UFOs Fall From the Sky: A History of Famous Incidents, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups.

Be sure to also check out Randle's blog, A Different Perspective.

St. John's Wort

St. John’s wort doth charm all witches away
If gathered at midnight on the saint’s holy day.
Any devils and witches have no power to harm
Those that gather the plant for a charm:
Rub the lintels and post with that red juicy flower
No thunder nor tempest will then have the power
To hurt or hinder your houses: and bind
Round your neck a charm of similar kind

-Traditional English Poem

St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum, or any of the 400 species of Hypericum) is a plant with a long history of both medicinal and magical uses. Many cultures employed the plant in a variety of treatments, however it's the plants magical reputation which has made the plant famous.

St. John's Wort gets it's name for the fact that it both flowers near and is traditionally harvested on St. John The Baptist Day. The plant's yellow flowers symbolize the sun and as such it is a perfect symbol of Midsummer celebrations. It's resemblance to the sun also lent the plant a share in the sun's ability to drive off darkness with it's light, hence the origin of the belief the plant is imbued with powerful protection against all evil and witchcraft.

For use in magic:

-St. John's wort hung in bundles in the home as well as crafted in wreathes and hung on the door for protection.

-A sprig of the herb carried in the pocket or carried in a bag around the neck was a sure charm to keep away the devil.

-Fresh St. John's Wort rubbed on the doors and door frames of a house protects it from lightening and storm damage.

-St. John's Wort carried on the person destroys a witch's power to harm.

-The leaves of St. John's Wort could be uses in a fortune-telling rite to determine who a young woman would marry.

-If one sleeps with a sprig of St. John's Wort under their pillow, St. John The Baptist will appear in one's dreams.

In modern times the belief that St. John's Wort has the power to chase away darkness is carried over into it's use as an antidepressant. The plant is an effective and natural treatment for mild cases of depression.







St. John's Eve And It's Magical Herb, St. John's Wort

HISTORY OF ST. JOHN'S WORT

St. John The Baptist Day

St. John The Baptist Day, a.k.a. St. John's Day, (June 24) and the day before St. John's Eve (June 23) is the day celebrating the birthday of John The Baptist. Due to it's proximity to the Summer Solstice, many of the old pagan customs celebrating Midsummer have been assimilated into practices associated with this day.

St. John The Baptist Day and the evening before it, are important to a variety of religions and groups. St. John's Eve is one of the most important holiday in Louisiana Voodoo or New Orleans Voodoo. Famed Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau held cleansings at Bayou St. John in the morning and dances at Congo Square in New Orleans on this evening, in honor of the Voodoo spirits called Loa. Some even believe that Marie Laveau rises from the grave on St. John's Eve in order to take place in Voodoo rituals. St. John The Baptist Day is also sacred to practitioners of Haitian Voodou as well as the religion of Santeria. For Hoodoo practitioners or rootworkers/conjure workers, St. John's Eve & St. John's Day also plays an important role as it is believed that St. John's Eve is the most powerful day of the year for the performing of work, good or bad. Voodoo worshippers honor Ogoun/Ogun, the spirit of iron, war and technology on this day. St. John The Baptist Day also has special significance to Freemasons. Of course the day still retains much of the older pagan folk customs prior to the arrival of Christianity.

Customs or practices associated with St. John's Eve and St. John's Day reflect the old pagan practices such as building bonfires and also include the gathering of St. John's wort, one of the strongest plants with the magical reputation of protection against evil. Today the herb is more commonly employed to treat depression.

An unusual fact concerning St. John The Baptist Day is that it is perhaps the only feast day honoring the birthday of a saint and not the anniversary of the saint's death (August 29). Because of such, it is possible that the day was specifically chosen to be honored by the church in order to assimilate the pagans.

Mirror Spell by Mercedes Lackey

Okay, I have to admit this song is pretty cheesy. However, due to it's subject I thought I would post it. It's called, Mirror Spell by Mercedes Lackey. It concerns a reversing spell done to send a curse or evil back unto the person who send it. For more information on reversing spells, click HERE.

National Geographic - Black Magic



For more information, see my blog entry on Brujeria.

Reversing

A Reversing, a.k.a. reversal, mirror-back or deflection, is the name of a category of spells in the practice of occult magic. Practitioners from nearly all cultures have some form of these types of spells.

Reversing spells are aimed to reflect back evil, negativity, pain, hatred, etc., to the person who sent it. They are also employed against a person who has performed a black magic curse against a victim.

Reversing spells give the appearance of being black magic, especially to the recipient of the spell as well as to uninformed people, but in reality they are examples of white magic, similar to protection spells. It's very important to realize that most of the recipients of reversing spells will claim they are victims of a curse, rather than accept ownership of their actions.

Reversing spells work much like the childhood phrase, "I'm rubber, you're glue. Whatever you say bounces off of me and and sticks to you!"


According to practitioners, the energy, good or evil, that people put forth wants to naturally return to the sender and it eventually will with time. By using reversing spells this time for the energy to return to the sender is greatly shortened.

Reversing spells are favored by Wiccans who adhere to their vow of the Wiccan Rede and don't practice black magic. Reversing spells are also favored by people who feel that such spells are more preferred over using black magic, especially since they perfectly embody the phrase, "Let the punishment fit the crime".
Reversing spells should not be performed lightly, as they often are more harmful and even deadlier than black magic curses. The reason being that people are their own worst enemies and evil or negative people often have strong self-destructive desires within their beings. There are even tales amongst practitioners of evil people who have actually died shortly after a reversing spell has been performed. In such cases it is assumed the person had been sending out evil energy for the death of another and paid the price for it. Ideally, one should only perform a reversing spell when actual harm has been done or when threats of harm have been made. It would not be appropriate to perform a reversing spell for something trivial as a woman shooting you an evil glance on the bus or a man spouting something offensive to you in passing, for example.

Reversing spells are more commonly placed on specific people, but in situations where the identify of the evil person is not known they can still be utilized. The evil energy directed at the victim knows the identity of the sender and wants to naturally return to him/her. Unfortunately it is possible for the evil person to deflect the reversing spell if they know magic, but usually only for a limited time. Eventually the evil person's will will falter and their own evil energy will immediately return right back to it's 'home'

Many items are utilized in the performance of reversing spells. Such items include special reversing candles, oils, incense, powders, stones, and herbs with the magical reputation of sending back evil to the sender. Because of the symbolism of "mirroring back" or deflecting, mirrors are often employed in reversing spells. Otherwise, a reversing spell may simply be cast with strong meditation and visualization techniques, with the individual visualizing the negative energy being sent to them as being deflected and returned back to the sender.

Reversing spells should not be confused with a spell to stop another spell, unless that spell is a black magic curse.

'Buffy' Remake Back On?

I was googling and found a site that only listed a couple of sentences, which is why I wont post the link here, stating that the 'Buffy' rumors are not true. Vannessa Hudgens was never offered the role and the film is still in talks.

The movie will be a remake of the original Buffy The Vampire Slayer and none of the familiar characters from the t.v. series will be involved. Unfortunately, Joss Whedon, 'Buffy' creator, will not be involved in the movie.

TrueBlood: Snoop Dog - "Oh Sookie" Music Video (HBO)

This aired after tonight's episode. Hilarious!

Chartres-Abbott, Shane

Shane Chartres-Abbott, pictured HERE, was a male prostitute and self-styled vampire who was on trial for the rape of a female prostitute during which the victim was repeatedly bitten and had a portion of her tongue bitten off. In his defense, Chartres-Abbott claimed the woman revealed to him that he was to be a victim of a snuff film. Fearing for his life, Chartres-Abbott reportedly attacked the woman in order to make his escape. When Chartres-Abbott was arrested, the victim's blood was found on his clothing and he had the victim's phone in his possession. Now for the strange part, as if the case wasn't strange to begin with.

During police interrogation, Chartres-Abbott claimed to be a 200 year-old vampire and that he regularly ingested human blood.

In June, 2003, during his trial, Chartres-Abbott was gunned down and killed in the morning hours outside of his home.

One Evangelos Goussis confessed to the crime and implicated two corrupt officers. However, police have focused on the boyfriend of the victim, Mark Perry, as being the person responsible for Chartres-Abbott's murder.

If the murder was not carried out by Perry, then it is speculated that Chartres-Abbott might have been murdered in order to silence him. Chartres-Abbott, as a male prostitute, reportedly charged $300 an hour or $2,000 a night and reportedly serviced many powerful people.

Litha (Midsummer)

Litha, a.k.a. Midsummer, the Summer Solstice, (circa June 20-22) is the Wiccan Sabbat or festival honoring the arrival of summer. The name Litha comes from the Saxon title for the month of June, Aerra Litha. Litha is pronounced "lee-ta".

At this time, the Wiccan Goddess is believed to be pregnant from the sacred marriage to the Horned God that occurred on Beltane. All of nature is in the fullness of life. The sun itself is also believed to be at it's climax of heat and power. From this point on daylight will grow shorter until we arrive at Samhain (Halloween) when the sun is believed to 'die' and then to Yule (The Winter Solstice) when the sun is 'reborn'.

The festival of Litha/Midsummer is centered on the joy of living and of the pleasure of the youth. It is a celebration of the ecstasy of nature in all it's glory. Gifts of flowers, especially roses, are offered to the Goddess. Worshipers would build bonfires and dance and drink and couples would sneak off into the wild woods in order to take joy in the flesh.

On the Summer Solstice, the Oak King prevails against his arch-rival the Holly King and couples whose love is strong will wed under the watchful eye of nature in the Wiccan Ceremony called handfasting. Litha is the perfect date for Wiccan weddings as June is named after Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage and childbirth.

Let us not forget the bard's creation, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Especially since the fairy folk are quite active at this time.

Orisha Inle Statue

I was googling and found this neat statue of the Orisha Inle, also known as Erinle. You can view the picture by clicking HERE.

Inle is the Orisha of fishing, but fishing as hunting and not the passive fishing that the Western world has come to embrace. I'm talking about men with spears actively hunting their prey instead of passively sitting and waiting for their prey to take the bait. Inle is also the Orisha of medicine and healing. In nature Inle is symbolized by the area where the river meets the sea. He makes his home there. Inle's wife is Abata, his help-mate and sometimes viewed as a patron of nurses.

Orisha Inle is wrongly believed by many to be the patron of homosexuals due to his feminine features and love of expensive clothing. He also takes great pride in his hair. However, Inle has a wife and is truly not associated with homosexuality, but rather that role may belong to his son, Logun Ede, a.k.a. Laro.

Orisha Inle's sacred colors are blue(s) and yellow and his sacred number is 24. Among Santeria practitioners he is identified with St. Raphael. Orisha Inle is the patron of fisherman and doctors.

*Note: Practitioners of African Traditional Religions which honor the Orishas do not worship statues. The Orisha are not confined to statues or images, but rather their essence is placed in saccred pots. Click HERE for an image of one for Orisha Oshun, the orisha of love, sex, & money.

I love this series of books and am attempting to collect them all. So far I have Night Creatures, Fairies And Elves, Ghosts, Dragons & Dwarfs.

Caoineag

Caoineag, pronounced 'konyack', is a female water spirit in Scottish mythology.

Appearance: No human has ever seen her.

Lore: Caoineag haunts waterfalls and other bodies of water and cries out or wails when someone important is about to die or a great tragedy is about to happen. In this fashion she is similar to the supernatural beings called Banshees.

Powers: The cry of the Caoineag is a death omen. Unlike Banshees, the people who hear the Caoineag will be the ones who die or else experience the tragedy.

Trivia: Caoineag is Scottish Gaelic for "The Weeper".

Joan The Wad

Joan The Wad is the Queen of the Pixies in English folklore.

Appearance: Probably appear as other Pixies, small female being dressed in green. Some Pixies were said to be very beautiful while others had a more monstrous appearance. Joan The Wad may appear as a fairy light. Anyone who follows this light is in danger of becoming lost or worse, even dying. There are reports of fairy lights leading people to become mired down in the swamp or else walking them off cliffs.

Lore: The word "wad" is an archaic term for torch. The use of the term suggests that Joan is associated with the fairy light phenomenon, otherwise referred to as ignis fatuus or more commonly called will-o-the-wisp.

Powers: As a fairy, Joan possesses fairy glamor which she can use to trick or even harm or kill people if she so chose.

Defense Against Joan The Wad: As a fairy, Joan likely fears iron. Salt and prayers may also come in handy. If one is foolish enough to follow fairy lights and gets lost, one can break free of the enchantment by stripping naked, turning inside out all of one's clothes and putting one's shoes on the wrong feet. Such actions will confuse the fairies and prevent them from doing further harm.

Trivia: According to modern folklore of the area, wearing an image of Joan, such as on a pendant on a necklace, will bring the wearer good luck.

Asrai

Asrai are water nymphs or fairies in English folklore.

Appearance: Asrai appear as either beautiful pale maidens or else as children or child-like beings a couple of feet in height. They reportedly possess webbed hands and feet.

Lore: Asrai are known for their beauty. In fact, their beauty is so intoxicating to humans that any human who sights one immediately attempts to capture it. Asrai live in watery depths and only surface on nights of the full moon to sing and play at surface waters. According to some legends, Asrai only surface once in a hundred years.

Powers: Asrai possess intoxicating beauty and as fairies possess fairy glamour and likely possess supernatural powers over the element in which they live. Asrai are cold-natured creatures, so much so that it is said that if an Asrai touches a person then that spot on the person's body will always feel cold.

Defense Against Asrai: Asrai are no danger to humans, but are in fact in danger by humans who attempt to capture them. Capture almost always brings the death of the Asrai for they cannot live on land. Also, sunlight is fatal to Asrai. If they cannot return to their home in the depths they will dissolve into a puddle of water when exposed to sunlight.

Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura - Underground Base At Denver International Airport

Denver Airport Conspiracy

Another video concerning the conspiracy theories surrounding the Denver International Airport.



I can't say I buy into the conspiracy theories. Rather, I just think the airport is extremely weird and I think it is due in part by the fact that many wealthy people are downright nutty-nuts. Many of the rich elite get caught up in new-age and retarded secret society teachings. It's part of the eccentricity associated with wealth. Also keep in mind that at the time the airport was constructed, there was considerable fear about the dawning of the new millennium and of a percieved apocalypse that would be assicated with it. Of course that apocalypse never occured.

Bluecifer

Bluecifer is a 32ft-tall statue of a blue mustang with glowing, red eyes that currently stands at the Denver International Airport.

Many people do not like the statue with some even labeling it "Demonic", hence the nick-name given to it (Blue + Lucifer).

To add to the spookiness, the creator of Bluecifer, Luis Jimenez, died on June 15, 2006, when a portion of the statue fell on him and crushed him.

The inclusion of Bluecifer at the Denver International Airport is looked on as yet another freaky thing happening at the site and as fodder for conspiracy theories. At the airport one can also find eerie apocalyptic murals, Masonic monuments, and gargoyles. The location also has a secret underground facility which has been verified by construction workers and Feng Shui experts were brought in to help cleanse and improve the airport as it apparently suffered from bad chi from being built on top of ground sacred to Native Americans.



The official name of the piece is "Mustang" by Luis Jimenez.

I Heart Eshu

Chief Esuleke reflects on his worship of the Yoruba spirit called Esu(Eshu or Ellegua), who some equate with the biblical Satan. Eshu is a trickster and is indeed sometimes equated with Satan but Eshu is far different that embodiment of evil that most Christians fear. Eshu is the spirit of chaos, of chance, of crossroads, doors, and gates, and can be just as good and helpful as he can be cruel.

Yes, I worship Esu, but I’m not satanic

On a personal note, Eshu is perhaps my favorite form of the Trickster.

Raw Head And Bloody Bones

Raw Head And Bloody Bones, a.k.a Rawhead, Tommy Rawhead, or Bloody Bones, is a monster of folklore in Ireland, Britain and in the southern United States. The information below is primarily associated with the monster in the southern United States.

Appearance: A dead-but-animated, decapitated, razorback hog, whose flesh has been stripped from the bones of it's carcass. In Ireland and Britain the beast may appear as a hairy, goblin-like creature. The monster may be similar in appearance to the Cutty Black Sow.

Lore: While alive, Rawhead was the favorite pet, some say familiar, of the old witch who owned him. One day a group of hunters came and killed Rawhead. They butchered him, chopped off his head, and defleshed his bones. When the witch realized what had happened, she flew into a rage and performed a powerful spell of revenge. With her magic she raised Rawhead from the dead. His bloody bones joined back together and his head reattached. The horrible Rawhead and Blood Bones monster had been created. The monster then set out to gain revenge by killing the hunters responsible for his death.

After killing the hunters, the monster took up residence in the woods, in lakes or ponds, or else in the homes of bad boys and girls whom the creature kidnapped and ate.

"Rawhead and Bloody Bones
Steals naughty children from their homes,
Takes them to his dirty den,
And they are never seen again."

-British Nursery Rhyme

Rawhead And Bloody Bones has now become a bogeyman, a monster used to frighten children into behaving.

Powers: Rawhead And Bloody Bones walks upright like a human and possesses supernatural strength. Rawhead And Bloody Bones also has taken parts of other animals like cougar teeth and raccoon tails and added it to his body. In Ireland and Britain Rawhead is said to possess the ability to shape-shift.

Defense Against Rawwhead And Bloody Bones: ??? -I guess children should behave and not be naughty!

Rawhead And Bloody Bones Trivia: Clive Barker's Rawhead Rex was based on the legends of the monster. The first written reference to a monster named Rawhead was in the Oxford English Dictionary in the year 1550.

To Raise A Store: Witches & Weather

It's been a stormy day for me. In honor of the weather, I am reposting this blog entry from May of last year. Enjoy!

"Second to flight, the witches chief power was the power to control weather. Witches were constantly accused of manufacturing hailstorms to destroy crops, or of creating tempests that sank ships, or of conjuring sudden hurricanes to spread fires or otherwise wreak havoc on their neighbors. Sailors feared women who whistled because of the sympathetic magic implied in "whistling up the wind." And the association between chaos in the macrocosm and chaos in the microcosm that we find in King Lear's howling tempest (and other Shakespearean storms) was in fact an association between devilish doings and huge storms that dated back to the Middle Ages.

The witchy blighting of crops with hailstones may in fact be a remnant of the attributes of the Mother Goddess, condensed (if we may pun so) into the figure of the witch. For the power to make nourishing rain or blighting hailstones is again a form of the power to increase (or blast) fertility. The witch is a rainmaker, a snow maker. Is there an official Witch of Aspen?"

-Witches, by Erica Jong


One of the things witches were famously credited with was raising storms to kill their enemies or destroy their property.

Below is a traditional spell used by witches to raise a storm.

Wet a rag with water so that it is soaking-wet, i.e. don't wring the water out. Beat the rag against a stone three times while saying;
"I knock this rag upon this stone to raise the wind in the devil's name. It shall not lie until I please again!"

If you so choose to perform the following spell, might I recommend playing the following song in the background, as you do so? It is 'Cursum Perficio' by Enya. Just listen to it and try not to visualize an approaching storm. The song starts out like a calm, beautiful day and then halfway through the tone changes dramatically, just like an approaching storm. It would definitely set the mood.

Many people have wondered what exactly Sookie is. I mean she looks human, but she is telepathic and in last season with Maryann it was revealed she can produce this electrical-light-thingy with her hands when she's mad. Well, according to people who have read the books, Sookie is......are you read for it?..........a FAIRY!!! LOL We got ourselves a regular Tinkerbell! LOL But seriously. Fairies are no laughing matter. According to folklore they are quite dangerous and nothing at all like Disney portrays. I haven't read the books the series is based on, but my guess is that Sookie is a Changeling, a fairy substitute. I sure hope the show keeps Sookie as a fairy.

Oh, and Sam isn't gay. LOL It's a side-effect of drinking vampire blood. It cause people to have erotic dreams of the donor vampire. LOL

A mysterious woman named Maryann strolls into town. Maryann turned out to be a Maenad, a female worshipper of the Greek god Dionysus. As such, Maryann was immortal and had supernatural powers. Maryann also liked to transform her hands into monster-claws and run through the woods ripping apart wild animals and killing any humans she happened to come upon. Maryann had her way with the town folk, getting them to act the fool and eventually to aid her in her goal of summoning Dionysus.

You see, even though Maryann had evolved spiritually to the point of being immortal, Maryann was still as stupid as the average mortal. It seems the goal of Maenads is to successfully invoke Dionysus, have him appear, so that they can offer him their own immortality, become consumed by him so that they can "become one with the god". Foolish, isn't it? LOL This insane desire turned out to be Maryann's only weakness and sure enough the good guys exploited it.

I will miss Marryann. She definitely was the centerpiece of season 2.

(Oh, and I don't mean to toot my own horn, but after finding out what Maryann was and what she wanted, I realized right then and there that this is how it would turn out, that Sam would trick her into giving up her immortality so that she could be killed. LOL)

Lechuza

Lechuza are either shape-shifting witches or spirits in Hispanic folklore. Tales of Lechuza are quite popular in Mexico and Texas.

Appearance: A human-sized bird with a woman's face

Lore: Lechuza are women who have sold their souls to the devil in exchange for magical powers. At night, they transform into monsters with a bird's body and a woman's face, similar to depictions of harpies in Greek mythology. They then fly through the night in search of prey.

When a Lechuza finds her target she will perch in a location where she can't easily be seen and then will make either strange whistles or the sound of an infant crying. Anyone who attempts to determine where the sound is coming from is at risk of becoming Lechuza's dinner. Lechuza will then swoop down and carry off the confused and horrified individual.

In some versions of the story, the Lechuza is the spirit of a witch who was murdered by locals. Her spirit returns in the form of the bird-monster to get revenge. In other tales, the Lechuza is the vengeful spirit of a woman who has returned from the grave to torment the living and to seek revenge.

In modern times, most reported run-ins with the witch-bird involve her swooping down at cars driving deserted roads at night.

Powers: As a witch, Lechuza possesses supernatural powers. One of the powers of the Lechuza is to summon storms. Sightings of Lechuza are believed to coincide with thunderstorms. Lechuza possess the power to shape-shift into bird-monsters at night. Lechuza also possess the ability to disguise their voices to appear as if it is the cries of an infant in order to draw it's human prey closer. Finally, it is believed that hearing the cry of the Lechuza is an omen that someone in the household will die, a trait more commonly found in tales of the banshee. Lechuza are immune to weapons and bullets and possibly are immortal.

Defense Against Lechuza: Lechuza fear salt. Upon hearing the call of a Lechuza one should immediately began cussing her out. Doing so will drive her away. Don't go outside to investigate hearing a strange whistle sound or the sound of a baby crying.

Lechuza As Owls: Today many mistake owls for the Lechuza and some even suggest that owls are the origin of the Lechuza myths.

Money House Blessing

Money House Blessing is the brand name of a line of products produced by E.Davis, Inc.

The line includes aerosol air fresheners (my favorite kind, vanilla pictured left), automobile air fresheners, incense and soap.

The product appears in this blog due to it's name. Many who have come across these products might be curious about the name. Are these products supposed to draw money?

The name Money House Blessing, is a typical spiritual product name among products sold to Hoodoo practitioners. The name communicates the purpose of the product, in this case to both draw money into the home, as well as to bless the home. The imagery also identifies it as being a spiritual product. The cornucopia represents prosperity, the Indian head is found on may spiritual products and refers to the Indian Spirit Guide, a concept found among both Hoodoo practitioners and Spiritualists. The number 9 in "9 Indian Vanilla" represents power (3 x3).

The products would likely be used in conjunction with magical Hoodoo rituals for ridding the home of evil or negativity, as well as traditional house cleaning. Spraying the vanilla air freshener would be a good way of "sealing" the rite.

Today the name Money House Blessing has become the name of the product line and no longer indicates a true spiritual product marketed specifically for Hoodoo practitioners. This said, if one knows the properties of various herbs and scents, then one could theoretically still use these products for magical purposes. For example, pine is used magically to cleanse the home of evil and negativity, vanilla can be used to draw love, cinnamon draws both love and money, and dragon's blood can be used to draw good luck, money, power, as well as to cleanse the home of evil or negativity.

You can order Money House Blessing products HERE, or else you can pick them up yourself in a store near your location. Many stores carry them. Check your local dollar store.

The Donkey Lady

The Donkey Lady is the reported vengeful spirit of a woman who was horribly burned in a fire and which haunts the area of Old Stone Ridge Road and the Donkey Lady Bridge in San Antonio, TX.

Appearance: A 7ft-tall woman so horribly burnt and disfigured by fire that she crawls on all fours. Her disfigurement and her painful bellows give her an animal like appearance, similar to that of a donkey.

Lore: There are many stories of the Donkey Lady. Most involve either a woman who was involved in a fatal car crash in the 1950s or else a Chinese woman who was murdered and set on fire by racist locals. In the wreck version, the accident was said to have been caused by reckless and perhaps drunk teens who were driving along the Old Stone Ridge Road without their lights on. The tragic accident killed the woman's children instantly, but the woman herself was able to drag her flaming self from the wreckage. She then collapsed and died while attempting to reach out for help to the teens who caused the wreck. The woman's spirit did not rest and is believed to haunt the area, forever on the look-out for revenge against similar reckless teens. In other versions of the story only the car with the teens crashed, with the Donkey Lady being one of the girls in the car who died and returned to get revenge on other reckless teens.

In the version of the tale involving the Chinese woman, racist locals were believed to have set fire to her house, killing her children. The Chinese woman was the only person to make it out of the house alive, but unfortunately she had been horribly burnt and later died. Her spirit is said to haunt the area, seeking a way to get revenge on the townspeople for their horrible crime.

According to legend, if one drives down Old Stone Ridge Road with their lights on, honks their horn, and then quickly turns on the lights they will see the terrible figure of the Donkey Lady.

Powers: The Donkey Lady is said to have supernatural powers to mess with people's cars, locking and unlocking car doors, stalling cars, pushing cars, etc. The Donkey Lady is also claimed to possess supernatural strength, having the ability to bust through the windshield or roof of the car in an attempt to get at the people inside.

Defense Against The Donkey Lady: Don't perform the ritual which summons her. If you are in the area and hear strange cries and the sound of hooves clicking on pavement, run! That isn't the sound of hooves but rather the sound of the Donkey Lady's bones striking the pavement.

Old Foamy

Old Foamy is the name of a goatman or satyr-like monster that haunts the area of Cleburne, TX. The creature gets its name from the name of a local stream and road.

Appearance: A hairy, 7ft-tall, half-human and half-goat creature.

Lore: According to legend, if one parks their car on Old Foamy road near the stream, turns off their lights and honks the horn three times the beast will appear.

The area around the Old Foamy stream/road has an eerie reputation as many bodies have been found there over the years. Most of the victims had been hanged, though in some cases the victims were murdered horribly as in the man who murdered his family and scattered their body parts there back in the 1960s. The area is also reported as being a location where Satanic rituals are performed.

Powers: Old Foamy has incredibly strength and is reported to either throw dead animals at cars or else jump on top of the car roof and attempt to bust through to get at the people inside. The creature may have the supernatural ability to effect cars by either preventing them from starting or pushing them a good distance (of course this may be due to his physical strength as well).

Defense Against Old Foamy: Don't perform the ritual that summons him. Otherwise, the legend states that one must immediately put the car in reverse and drive away after honking three times if one wishes to escape the beast's clutches.
