Do You have love problems ?

Well I can not say I had love problems and I hope I never will , to be honest .

However so many people mail me asking me about how to heal a broken heart, return a lover and such . Some ask me how to cut all ties with someone completely.
I wont say I am against love magick , as I would cast it for someone , yet I hardly think I would ever use it myself . For those that wish to return a lover here is a nifty spell :

Twenty Seven Day Paper Voodoo Doll Spell

1. Cut out a paper Voodoo doll.

2. Write your lover's name on the paper Voodoo doll nine times.

3. Cross over each name with your own.

4. Place the paper Voodoo doll in a saucer or plate and cover it with sugar.

5. Stick a blue birthday candle in the center of the sugar, make a wish and burn the candle, but don't blow it out. Keep the dish with the sugar, paper Voodoo doll, and any wax drippings.

6. Add a fresh birthday candle the next day. Repeat for a total of nine days - nine blue birthday candles in total.

7. If your lover is not back by the ninth day, burn the sugar and the paper.

8. Start again the next day, repeating the entire 9 day ritual with fresh materials. If your lover is not back, burn the materials again.

9. Try it again for another nine days.
Three times is the charm. If you lover is not back after repeating this ritual three times, he or she won't be and it is best to move on

This spell can be found in Book "How to Voodoo with Voodoo dolls" by Miss Denise Alvarado , Voodoo Mama of http://www.mysticvoodoo.com/ fame . If You like rituals and spell employing dolls, doll babies and poppets hers books are the very best choice.

Now here are two of my own recipes one being potion to heal the broken heart and other being Cut and clear oil , as I prepare it, and it is used fir more than just cut all ties with a former/bad lover or spouse

Potion to heal a broken heart

Violet leafs , whole 7 to 9 of them
Few Balms of Gillead
Mint 3 branches
Few pine needles
Whole Rose flower , preferably white
A tablespoon of honey or brown sugar
Two cups of spring water

In two cups of spring water poured into cauldron add ingredients listed , all but honey ( or sugar )

Then stir visualizing occasionally potion glowing with healing colored light ( blue , white , gold yellow what You consider healing color shall do )
When it is about to boil chant three times while stirin

Violet to heal heart broken
Balm of Gilead to soothe is added
Mint to strengthen mind troubled
Pine to cleanse body and soul
Rose to inspire spiritual love for all
Honey to sweeten the bitter heart
This potion to bid ill love apart .

Divide in three portions and drink one in morning , one at midday and one at night , when the Moon is Full.

NOTE : This potion is written by me , meaning it is my proprietary formula based on traditional herbal use and correspondences , so If You wish ti use it elsewhere . feel free , however give credits !!! You can put this: By Shadow of Shadow-333@hotmail.com . Thank You !

Cut and clear oil

*Lemon leaves ( 9 of them )

*Lemongrass ( if oil nine drops , nine pinches if herb, or nine chips )

*Lemon verbena ( teaspoon )

*Lemon mint ( teaspoon )

*Some pine needles ( approximately dozen )

*Eucalyptus essential oil ( just a few drops )

*Lemograss essential oil ( optional , few drops )

You can add few mint leaves in each bottle made to give You mental straight , or thyme to give You courage. If You have small scissors charm ( small metal scissors representation ) put in each bottle made . Razor blade may substitute but watch Your fingers !

Top all with oil . Leave Lemon leaves in each bottle .

The same NOTE I added for potion goes for this too .

Cut and clear oil is Hoodoo condition oil used to cut all ties with someone , to forget someone , to cut ties to a resolved ( mended ) bad habbit, so it never comes back , it can even be used to cut energy cords and tentacles attached by spiritual leeches. Just anoint a kunzite or amethyst or quartz point with this oil and draw celtic cross to where the cord.tentacle is attached , and say farewell to it :D

If You find this oil hard to make order one with same name and uses from http://www.luckymojo.com/

Are You empathic

I should have posted this long time ago , but hey , nevere too late I guess lol

So many people wil nowadays claim to be emphatic , but empathy is one of the rarest gifts in are of ESP abilities !

So what's up with that ?

Well just mind that there are many rp-esrs out there and many frauds , fakes , false readers and psychics , then there are troubled people etc . So I decided to write about what is emathy all about and how to recognise it ?

Well here You go

Signs of empathy


- Ability to sense and feel another person emotional state, even without visual contact or even the presence of the person in question
- Ability to sense and feel another persons physical/physiological state and conditions , even without visual contact or even presence of the person in question
- Ability to perceive and define “emotional state” of surroundings and places , usually ones on which a strong emotional expressions take places or have took place in recent or distant past . This would include sensation of unnatural fatigue or cry urge , strong sorrow feeling on such a place . In short emath should be able to “read” places, If You know what I mean.
- Ability to easily empathies with others in general , and being struck by an overwhelming sensation or pain or sorrow even when just watching a disturbing or sad scene on TV
- Knowledge on other people being in danger , non obtained by mundane means, often includes “long distanced” empathy , being in foul emotional state or sick , or hurt
- Ability to track or find people , assuming of course we do not have help of mundane means
- Ability to on occasion guess what someone thinks exactly , to guess when someone is going to call You ( not sign of telepathy as commonly confused , it can also be sign of spiritual intuition ), and also empaths more-less ALWAYS can tell when someone is lying them and are amazingly successful in reading between the lines , even in terms of written documents, books etc.
- Ability to “diagnose” person in terms of psychology , and know someone hidden intents , even without any knowledge in the area
- Advanced empaths can heal emotionally and somewhat physically but may feel ill awhile afterwards
- Advanced empaths can manipulate other peoples emotional state ( popularized term used is empathic projection ), be immune to telepathy or any sort of mind intrusion

You want to be positive ? Here is type of “blind” test I came up with

1) You will need someone to assist You , and three persons willing to be subjects . Your assistant should lead each person in room to which You want be able to see or hear what I happening but will be close enough ( the ideal would be mirror rooms , like ones police uses to interrogate persons but hey , we must do with what we have ,
Separate rooms in house will do )

2) This are the suggestion of the person ( You should not see , or know of before the experiment !!! )

1 . person You know , with or without mental/physical condition 2. child 3. person that is emotionally troubled
1. person with physical condition 2. person with mental/emotional condition 3.
Peron You know
1. male 2. female 3. kid
1 person You know 2.person You know 3. unknown person

3) Now sit before each room or stay for awhile and try to sense: person’s emotional , physical state , gender , approximate age ( like child, teen , adult , mature , old , very old etc. ) and Your familiarity with it ( do You know him/her/it ) ,write those down and check Your results ! Give Yourself a point for each of the characters , and for each person should total 15 if You were completely successful .
All over 7-8 points indicate empathic talent
10 – 12 indicate empathy in “medium to strong stage”
12 – 15 are certain sign of very strong empathy

4) You are advised to do all of the person combinations and even more iF you are creative and cross reference the results to get the clearest and most accurate results.

And If You are an empath You will find Yourself very tormented ( emotionaly , mentaly ) from time to time . I know I do feel like killing myself on occasions . That is one of the reasons I came up with this Condition oil

Piece of mind oil


Oil to be used to dress Your third eye , sternum area , hand wrists to calm Your mind and fends off the confusion, end intranquility.
To 2 oz of base oil

Few drops of Wintergreen essential oil
Few drops of Lavender essential oil
Few drops of Rosemary oil
Add s spring of Mint
Add a spring of Lavender
Add White Rose / or White rose bud
Add few Grains of Frankincense to each bottle made

Let it sit at least a week , best for month . Recipe based on Hoodoo correspondences ,
By me M.V. aka Shadow

Explanation on ingredients :)

Mint gives mental strenght in times of need ( among other things a for which Mint is used in Hoodoo like , uncrossing ) , Lavander and Rosemary give serenity and purify all bad thoughts , White Rose is a symbol of Peace in Hoodoo , of blessing and well being , Wintergreen add's a touch of luck and strenght to this oil , while Frankincense brings vigor and light of the Sun to destroy depression and apathy .

Luck and even more of Luck , High John herbal

High John the Conqueror ( Ipomea Jalapa ), family Solanaceae , is a Hoodoo trademark herb.
A charm used in many other traditions too , and widely used as a good luck charm by many people , but originated from Hoodoo or Conjure tradition.

The name comes from a African prince that had kept his spirit unbroken upon enslavement and, done many good to his people .He defeated and dominated his enemies, hence the belief that root of the same name has alike properties.
It is compared to King Arthur by Zola Neale Hurston ( famous American folklorist ) and he was also the hero of the folk oral tradition story resembling “Jean, the Soldier, and Eulalie, the Devil's Daughter

It most common ( and most accurate and appropriate uses !!! ) are :

- inducing lust and desire to selected target
- gambling luck and general luck , money gaining by luck
- compelling, controlling and domination ( however less powerful for this matter than some other herbals as Calamus for example )
- overpowering and defeating enemies and evil spirits

How to properly use it ?

1.Gather with respect

I am used to leaving a spoon of honey, piece of bread and/or cornmeal, and or metal coin , in the hole where the root was . This is because the plant must be sacrificed for this so this is my tribute . If the Plant is older You may find more than one of the roots , therefore no need for destroying the whole plant.

2. Dress with High John TC oil

Made by placing 1-3 small roots in 2drams of base oil ( I suggest jojoba ) . Leave it to stay for a month , and then You may add few drops of cedar and vertivert oil , just to intensify the woody root odour ( odor ) .
You can than carry it in red mojo bag , dressed with Van Van oil and High John TC oil.

Some folks like to read Psalms over the root , depending on their aims .

Warning : The root ingestion may cause diarrhea and stomachache , but If You are silly enough to eat non edible roots , serves You well . Hence the use as very strong laxative in herbal medicine .
