Rufus Opus: Head For the Red One of the best minds in the occult world today, in my opinion, albeit Hoodoo (what I usually discuss) is not his topic of choice. This gem was one I discovered thanks to a client and I strongly recommend his blog to all who are interested in things suchas working with angels, demons, Enochianism, Golden Dawn and talismanic magic (there really is a nice mash of brain food to be had). Great stuff!
For those of you who remember the REAL Karate Kid, and who are even old enough to know who the heck Ralph Macchio is (this guy was huge when I was in my single digits,) this is absolutely hysterical. From Funny or Die:
Since I'd not had my normal spirit conjuring area available to me this weekend (well, technically I DID, but there was a 99.9% chance of being disturbed if conjuring there, which is very much a bad thing,) I went out in the middle of NOWHERE (wait, to most of you, I already live out in the middle of nowhere...so...it was even more extreme as in the dead center of a forest where I had to walk for a mile in the forest to get to the place I was at,) and I did some spirit conjuring.
That was a total trip and a half, people. I don't know as I'd recommend this to the newbs amongst you (newbs should not eff with spirits anyhow,) but to those of you seasoned at calling things up in your basement/guest room/some part of your home, I must recommend it. It's intense...it was like amping the experience up 300%. Either I just became 3x more clairaudient and clairvoyant from the energy in the woods, or the energy in the woods fed that being enough energy to manifest to such a degree that if The Ghost Hunters or kids from Paranormal State were there, they would have crapped themselves. (Actually if the kids from Paranormal State ever saw a real manifestation of even a few of the things they claim contact with they would long ago have crapped themselves.)
Now, now, peanut gallery of thou-shalt-not, and oh-no-you-can't, I was a very good doobie and made sure to send back that which I'd called forth. I was not a jerk about it (really, that's bad form - you get so much more accomplished with being pleasant,) but I was thorough. No need for people to claim I've left something bad hiding in my woods for you. I totally love where I live and love the woods. When it comes to my state (and this took place in my beloved homestate,) I do my very best to take only pictures and leave only footprints - and I don't leave entities that may respect the hell out of me, but would love to terrorize you just hanging around. I'm better than that.
Which is something I'd like to talk with all of you about... You know, its one thing to leave spirits and entities all over your own property when you inhabit said property, but its your obligation to clean up and clean out all of that energy when you leave a place if you're the one who put it there. What is up with this BS I see on my television where some horse's butt is calling goodness knows what spirit up, and then just leaving it out there, or leaving some portal open for it to come around and eff with people? That's so sad and irresponsible. Really. Its no different then me pouring loads of toxic chemicals all over the place, and broken glass, and some syringes filled with diseases and stuff all over a property and then acting like I didn't just sell you a toxic waste pit. I would just like to say - and we all know I don't want to pass the morality glass around, - but I just want to say if you can't be responsible enough to both conjure and send back an entity, then you should not be effing with that type of work. It is not something to just play around with because you are bored and then just leave it out there because you can't be bothered to send it back properly. If I have to see another "A Haunting" on Discovery where some couple moves into a place where there are all sorts of occult leavings and the next thing you know Little Johnny is possessed, I'm just going to scream. That's sad, people. If you do it because you think its fun to terrorize the occult-ignorant, then you are also occult-ignorant...moreso than those you wish to terrorize.
You know, there are kinder ways to keep a property unsellable than to release malicious spirits onto/into it, so please keep that in mind if your intention is just to keep a property vacant.
Now, ahem, with that said, since I'm reasonably sure my spot in the woods was not ever used by white people for spell/magic, and only maybe (but not very likely) by the natives for such a thing, I was surprised by its raw energy. I am a big believer that any place in nature that contains some quietude has raw energy to it, but I am also an even bigger believer that spots which have been frequently used for spells or religious services have an even stronger energy in general, which is why I was surprised. I do not subscribe to the idea that just because a spellcasting spot is outside that it is better than an inside spot, but I do recognize there are those that do...and I can respect that.
Anyhow, don't know if any of you have had some amazing spirit conjurin' stories to share, but if you did, please do in the comments section. Sorry I had to be a bit vague on who I called upon and why I was there, but I was there for a client...so its none of your business and I can't tell you. ;)
UPDATED JUNE 10, 2010 TO ADD: I was not referring to a Hoodoo-based working here. The term "Conjuring" was used as a synonym to RAISING a spirit. Sorry for the confusion if you were confused. I am fully capable of using several paradigms of spellcraft and sometimes do use other kinds outside of Hoodoo.
