A Full Moon Love Binding Spell for Commitment, Fidelity & Enduring Relationships

Posted on June 04, 2018 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

Timing can be a key element in any type of magical spell work and working with the phases of the moon can often prove to be extremely fruitful, particularly when it comes to love drawing rituals. There is no question that moon magic serves a vital function in manifesting one’s intentions. In matters relating to love, there are three phases that can amplify the energy of a love spell: a new moon, a waxing moon and a full moon.

Generally, new moons lend themselves to all things that relate to new beginnings. This would be the ideal time to perform any type of spell that involves drawing in a new love interest or rekindling a relationship from the past. As the moon grows into the waxing phase, the emphasis is on growing things you have already begun. This is a great time to work on rituals that focus on deepening commitments and open up new levels of communication. The full moon is when the energy of moon reaches it peak, thus, is the most powerful. Although this phase of the moon can most always be effective for any type of love workings, I always suggest this phase when attempting to perform binding spells between two people.

Now to perform a full moon love binding spell we need to begin with the two most fundamental elements; a representation of you and a representation of your love interest. For this particular spell, you need to create two wax poppets. To create these, you will need to melt down a red or pink candle and form two figure molds from the wax. As a practioner, I would add a number of herbs, oils or even personal concerns to the wax, but this isn’t necessary. You can simply take two small pieces of brown paper bag with your names written on it and work it into your molds (your name would go into your representation and your love interest would be molded into the other one). You will also need to get a single red candle that is anointed with a bit of your favorite conjure oil. If you do not happen to have any conjure oil on you, simply mix some cinnamon, cloves and coriander in a bit of olive oil.  Finally, you will need a long piece of red or blue piece of thread.

To prepare for the ritual, take your two wax poppets and place the red candle between them. Take your string and gently wrap the two figures to the candle. Make sure they are secure enough where they won’t fall from the candle. Tie a knot.  Now here is the important part. Make sure there is plenty of string left. You are going to need this to complete the spell.

To perform your binding spell, wait for the first day of the full moon. Next, on the first night of the full moon, light your candle and visualize your intentions. Then take your extra string and wrap it around the candle and poppets 1 time and say the following:

“I am bound to thee and thee to I. In love to be, I bind you to me.”

Allow the candle to burn a total of 20 minutes.

You will want to perform this for 3 consecutive nights. On the final night, let the candle burn all the way down. Finally, you do not discard any of the leftover wax. You are going to want to keep this until you no longer wish to be bound to this person. Keep it in a safe place.

The Obeah Witch Doctor or Hoodoo Root Worker?

Posted on November 15, 2013 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

I need to be very clear. The Obeah (obi) practitioner and Hoodoo Root Worker have two entirely different approaches to magic. Granted, they do share some similarities such as the inclusion of European Grimoirés and the Ancient Kabbalah manuscripts related specifically to the King of Solomon. They were both also influenced by the L.W. De Laurence, who authored a number of occult books, the most famous being “The Great Book of Magical Art.” However, this is a rather recent attribute to the practice of Obeah. Prior to the exportation of slaves to the Americas, Obeah was based on a long oral teaching tradition and was and continues to be a religious practice. Hoodoo does have strong African roots largely influenced by the Yoruba, Ewe, and Fon tribes imported during the slave trade off the Gold Coast of Africa. However, it is not a religion nor does is prescribe to one particular approach.

The primary difference between Hoodoo and Obeah is the methodology. Hoodoo incorporates a number of methodologies. Some of these are European, Native American, Jewish and, yes Christian such as the inclusion of psalms and petitions to saints. Obeah, on the other hand, deals directly with spirits, both whom are reputed as benevolent and others that are less so and has a religious back drop to its practice. When I speak of spirits, I am not referring to one’s ancestors or the dead. I am referring to spiritual deities, both good and negative.

The Obeah witch has been around long before the slave trade. Some suggest Obeah originates from ancient cultures such as the Egyptians and Sumerians. Needless to say, it is old. Obeah is from the Ashanti region of West Coast Africa. Some scholars claim that Obeah comes from the Igbo tribe also located in Southern Nigeria. In either case, Obeah is distinct even though it does have a striking resemblance to Voodoo or (Vodoun). This is not surprising as they are neighbors to the Fon tribal region in Africa that includes parts of Southern Nigeria (Benin to be exact).

Obeah spread to the West Indies, Barbados, the Caribbean, Jamaica and the surrounding areas during the slave trade. It has evolved into a form of folk magic, largely based on the power of the spirit world. An Obeah practitioner, for example has the ability to work with good and bad spirits in order to accomplish a task. The goal of the Obeah practitioner is to develop a harmonizing relationship between the good and the bad spirits in order to send the spirits out to do their bidding. The Obeah works with both sides of a coin, the yin and the yang, the dark and the light. It is both a science and methodology.

Hoodoo can prove to be as equally powerful. But that really depends upon the person your work with. Here’s where I need to make a clear distinction. Most contemporary Hoodoo practitioners rely on what has been orally passed down to them. Many of the rituals they include in their repertoires do have many African undertones to it, but certainly not all of them. And many root workers have long forgotten the sources of their own methodologies. In other words, they may prescribe a certain herb, oil or ritual to perform but they may not necessarily know where the source originally came from. Although Obeah has also incorporated some European and Jewish mysticism, it is undoubtedly African in origin.

If you are scared of the spirit world, than Obeah is most likely not for you. If you would prefer some solid rituals to help you accomplish your goals without treading to deeply, than Hoodoo is most likely your ticket. To really get the most out of your money, you need to carefully pick the right practitioner. One that you can trust and one that has the resources to help you accomplish your goals.
