Hoodoo Studious Success ( Pass test spells )
There are many formulas and products in Hoodoo magick designated
To be beneficial to one’s mind, intellect, mental domination, social skills or even psychic powers. In lack of better term, “mind products” are a rich family in Hoodoo. Some of the famous formulas include “King Solomon’s wisdom”, or “Master key”. However these may be considered formulas with profound effect, on mind in more than just cognitive process
And logics. The two examples mentioned foster spiritual and elevated wisdom.
In this post, however I will speak of a slightly different genre of the family. And this is, what I like to call “Pass test” products. These products differ slightly from general “wisdom family” because they focus on shorter terms effects, and other than mind empowering and boosting ingredients, contain also success curios. Simply put, they are meant to do just what the name says, help one be successful in school, and pass tests thanking to both mind power and luck and success powers.
The best day for this type of operations is obviously Wednesday and the most proficient time of the day are hours or Mercury. Patron saints in Catholic Christian fiath, that are commonly associated with students are Thomas Aquinas, St. Albertus Magnus, Catherine of Alexandria and among Orthodox people, one of the patron saints of studnets and schoolchildren is St. Basileus.
The candles we use in such magickal work, should be of yellow or gold color, orange or seven days candles. Spheral and image skull candles are a brilliant choice as well. Purple offertory candles are another great choice. The words such as “pass test” may be inscribed in continuous ascending spiral on the candle.
Herbs associated with wisdom and mind power ( in terms of Hoodoo herbalism ) include, but are not limited on, Mint, Sage, Solomon’s seal root, Smart weed, Sage, Verbena, Peach tree leafs, Camphor, Bay laurel, then Rosemary etc.
I feel silly for having to point this out, but You do actually have to study. Simple “studious success” spells exist in most of the traditions, even folk magick ( see examples later in the text ) , and without further ado, here are some examples
Pass test/exam oil
• Mint leaves
• Solomon seal root
• Peach tree leaves
• Bay Laurel essential oil
• Sage essential oil
• Some Sandalwood or Bergamot essential oil ( optional )
Simple folk spells for exam passing
These spells orriginate from Balkan pennisula folk magick lore, though the one with the book seems to be widespread in Europe
• There is a custom in Balkan peninsula, that when the school kid or a student goes to take an important exam, mother or other dear person is to pour ( spill ) water behind them, as they walk outside the house, minding not to pour water on to the student, but that the water comes close to their ( student’s ) backs, simply put follow, but do not catch
• Hold a new fresh egg for a few moments, prior to leaving Your yard, and hit it against some large stone. This Balkan simple, traditional folk spell ensures that no ill or misfortune may interfere with You on the day You have important task. Balkan folk commonly say : “Break an egg to outsmart the Wicked”
• Place a book ( textbook, one from which You have been learning ) bellow Your pillow , while asleep. If the material ( book, textbook ) was read ( material/lessons ) learned , then placed bellow the pillow it will assure that all the information bits come together and will strengthen memory, focus and eloquence, preventing confuse or memory flaws. .
Spell to pass test
- Seven day or large yellow, offertory candle
- Pass test oil
- Mint and Verbena mixed powder
- Incense like, King Solomon’s wisdom, or alike incense
- Petitioner’s paper , with phrase such as “pass exam” written 7 times and crossed 7 times with Your name
Carve “pass test” in continuous ascending spiral, on Your candle, If You are using Offertory candle. If You are using Seven days candle You don’t need to carve anything. Either way, dress a candle with “Pass test/exam oil”, and dust the candle with Mint and Verbena mixed powder.
Inscribe the petitioners paper as suggested and, fold it three times towards Yourself. Then place it underneath the overturned saucer, and on the saucer place the candle.
Light the candle, and light the incense. Fumigate Yourself with the incense briefly, than place it near the candle.
Than Read Psalm 23rd and follow by Your personal petitions to pass the test.
Following Orthodox Christian prayers will bring You success, in specific task ( in this case, exam taking and studies ) . Now it is customary in Orthodox Christian practice to “give thanks” with a prayer, upon receiving spiritual help from Divine forces. Therfore many prayers, have two version, one to be prayed, when asking for help, and other giving thanks or expressing gratitude afterwards. The given prayer for successful task is no exception.
