There are two grand events in our lives that cannot be avoided. This is by any measure. One is your birth because you are already here, and your death, which is sure to come as the morning sun. Let the light shine so all can see, for it is just us, you and me. There is not but one thing to say, if not now you can be sure another day. What is can not but be.
—James R. Yarbrough
How you think, is how you will feel, and how you feel is how you will act.
THE BEAT GOES ON
Hoodoo is a form of predominantly African American traditional folk magic. Also known as conjure, it is a rich magical tradition that developed from the merging of a number of separate cultures and magical traditions. Hoodoo incorporates well established practices from African and Native American traditions, as well as some European magical practices and grimoires. It is often used to describe a magic spell or potion that also include conjuration, conjure, witchcraft, or rootwork.
The goal of hoodoo is to allow people access to supernatural forces to improve their daily lives by gaining power in many areas of life, including luck, money, love, divination, revenge, health, employment, and necromancy. As in many other folk religious, magical, and medical practices, extensive use is made of herbs, minerals, parts of animals' bodies, an individual's possessions, and bodily fluids, especially menstrual blood, urine and semen.
