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!
Happy Anniversary, and thank you for showing me and the rest of the world that there truly is such a thing as forty HAPPY years being married! You are a great example for everyone to follow, and I hope you have many more happy years together! I love you both so very very much!
The person who keeps searching NH Cat Hoodoo can stop the stalking at anytime. I see you in my referrers. Using AOL today, I see. Its not the first time I've noticed you.
Something you wanted to know? Please ASK ME PERSONALLY next time - that's probably the easiest way to find out what you want to know.
HINT - if you're using that as a way to get to the blog, you might try bookmarking the site. ;) I check all searches to my site to get an idea of what everyone wants to see on the blog, soo.....if you bookmark the site there wouldn't be any search criteria letting me know you look for new information about me every day. ;)
While this is the weirdest thing I've heard in a looooong time, I have to let others know.
Someone came to me talking about a compatibility reading I'd done for them. Since the lingo wasn't mine, the person claimed this happened last week, and I did not recognize the case, of course I was like "What are you speaking about?"
The person claimed that she called a 1-877 number (free in the USA,) and that the person on the other end claimed she was me, and gave this person a reading. Furthermore this person called her back from a 904 area code (I live in NH, which has one area code, 603,) and she was sure she had talked to me.
I assured her we had never conversed. I checked the sites she was visiting (apparently mine, so where this number came from, I do not know,) and then promptly called the police to notify them I had a report there is someone posing as me.
If you know anyone who has called a 1-877 number and claimed to have spoken with me, please be advised this is not me. I insist on contact being intitiated by email and I am rather concerned with my own privacy to the point of some people taking it personally. If you ever get some stalkers, you might understand. ;) But, my distaste for stalkers aside, I do not have any 1-877 number, and I have lived in the state of New Hampshire in the USA for my entire natural life. If you have spoken to someone posing as me (I would have insisted you email me your number and would have called you from my home from a blocked number, as I have for years,) please let me know immediately so that I can help forward this information to the police!
Again, this is about the wildest thing I've ever heard, and only one person is saying this to me, so I am hoping it was just some nutcase with a very bad idea of trying to pretend to be me one day to someone who just called the wrong number.
Apparently some of you didn't thoroughly read this post, and thought I was outing a client as a nuthatch. That kid was never my client would be the first point to make, and the second being that I never named him by name or gave his email addy.
I have never published a paying client's email, ever. I have never published a "used to pay me and then became a money drain" client's email for that matter. I have not published any client's name.
I do not just put out whacked-out emails I get online for all to see - it takes a level of abuse for me to even consider it, and then it would still be less than a HALF OF ONE PERCENT of the whacked out emails I get (if that,) making it up here. :S
So....while most of you privately were like "Whoa, that guy's totally and entirely insane! He just proved he's obsessed and nuts by what he wrote," a few were concerned I'd publish their emails.
Its about as likely that I would do that as it is that I would manage to successfully run for and win the position of the President of the USA, kiddos. I realize only three of you said this to me, and that more than 10 times that number seem to agree with that actions (or so the emails I recieved would say to me,) but if some of you are creating this scenario in your heads, than more of you must be as well, right? Well, probably.
I'm a lot nicer than you're giving me credit for. ;)
Now, if everyone can wipe the sweat off of their brow, I'm tryin' to get you a spell/occult post up today. ;)
Thanks to a very psycho reader who has "written two songs about me," and loved and hated me every day for a long time. I finally told him that if he's crying when I said "Just let it happen," and freaking out and writing songs about me, he had to calm down. Here is what he wrote because I want you all to see what happens when you're too obsessive! :D
As I broke down and cried a little in bed this morning something occurred to me.
There's a fine line between obsession and determination.
Let's say I go: ''I completely forget about it.'', and they call me for a screentest weeks later...
My performance might not be true representation of my talents and it might suck.
They're gonna take the best and the rest is gonna be forgotten.
I have to work on my diction, pronunciation, articulation everday.
Read articles and listen to professional journalists, TV hosts and anchors everday.
Improve my the way I present myself, my presence, my style. I have to make it raw, natural and compelling.
I have to spend some time on those things everyday so when they call me, I NAIL IT!
I work on that, pray, chant and meditate about it then move to something else.
Study, songwriting, my vocals, this and that.
That's how I keep myself in balance. Just because I absolutely want something doesn't mean I'm obsessing over it.
One shall not judge too quickly! I work on it the best way I can, then mind other stuff.
When working with Spirits, I give them all the time in the world.
There are Spirits I addressed so they help me with different issues I already forgot about! I did not pressure them!
If nothing happened months and months afterwards... I can't be blamed for being aggressive and unhealthy about it.
They either did not hear me or did not do their job properly or just did not care!
That's the key! They key is in balance!
Whenever someone tells me I have to completely forget about anything related to so or so thing I go...
Yes! I completely forget about the spell, ritual or working itself.
As for the situation... If I have to work on it on a daily basis (study music, work on my journalism etc.)...
I can't say: "Oh! I completely let go of it etc.'' I work on it, then I do other things.
If things don't progress, then the problem might lie elsewhere.
Yes, you're right! I'm kinda anxious about the contest because it's not the way I planned it.
As I told you, when it's a contest everyone is gonna vote for family members, friends, their favourites etc.
And a Spirit can hardly help with that.
That makes sense. That's why I said I'd rather be hired the conventional way but if there's only one way, so be it!
I decided to take heed of your word and be much more relaxed, calm and cool about it.
More confident. Less worried.
You're entitled to your opinion. It's your judgement! But I don't agree with every single bit of it.
People tend to use some words and terminology too quickly and they might hurt someone even though it's not their intention.
I appreciate you and like you. Therefore, your words got to me a little even though I tried not to be sensitive at all!
I feel much better now. I realize I have to work on my talents everyday...
What matters is I stay balanced about it. That's all!
I gotta study. I have exams every week. I almost through!
And thank you for all the advice on your blog! I'm sure many benefit from it! :)
By the way, I wrote two songs a long time before our conversation on the subject...
Apparently he didn't like my relax and have faith in yourself. He didn't like when I told him (again, as it says all over my blog,) letting go is not forgetting about it, its just not making it a central issue of worry. Don't overthink it. I was pretty nice. All I said that I felt might have been insulting was that I never found any newscaster to be compelling, and perhaps that sometimes people confuse practice with drilling and that I felt he was drilling himself. Sorry, friend. This is his reply.
Going on and on about mental health, psychological problems and obsession! That was obsessive and impressive!
You're the one obsessed and you're fixated on making it a permanent state.
You sincerly think you're the Voice of Reason? You're deluded.
Hey! My reply was very, very, very kind, polite and civilized!
But you accused me of attacking you and seeking an argument! What the???
1st - Your problem is that you do not listen properly.
You offer spellcasting services. Of course people will come to you with all sorts of situations!
I was very clear to you. I needed your assistance in an area of my life. Period!
You're the one that ASSumed that I was obsessing over it when I was not!
That was uncalled for! I very kindly told you it's more complicated than you think but I would try to be more calm and relaxed about it!
I complimented you for your input on your blog and said I do appreciate you.
It was all HONEST!
But you chose to go on obsession craze and I swear to Heaven it's freaking me out!
I kindly told you you might hurt people's feelings when generalizing and using big words too quickly. Just saying: ''Be more calm and relaxed about it and everything will unflod.'', if you THINK (It's just an assumption!!! You're not omniscient! LOL!) that stress is what messing things up might have the same effect.
What did you do? COMPULSIVELY threw obsession around like a maniac that just escaped from asylum...
And the scariest thing is that you're convinced that you actually make sense!
I swear to God YAHWEH Casey Anthony will have a better place than you in Heaven! LOL!
You PROVED you are RUDE, INSENSITIVE and completely INCONSIDERATE of other people's feelings. SHAME ON YOU, CAT!
I did not ask for your pity. I was not expecting it but I was expecting some understanding.
Someone tells you they shed a FEW tears, that's it!!! And that's how you address them!
You OBSESSIVELY attack them with the same word even more! It's FUCKING DISGUSTING and VILE!
I felt bad that morning. That's okay! It doesn't imply anything on my mental health!
I've been feeling much better for days now! I'm definitely not gonna feel bad over anything you say ever again since you're obviously not worth it! No compassion! No empathy!
2nd - I was not seeking advices from you. I was looking for a hand in making something better but I obviously knocked on the wrong door. Okay!
I now have the lowdown on you... You seemed nice but I was mistaken.
I do not like your attitude.
I'm blaming everyone? I take responsibility for my actions as I'm responsible for my life. IF others are partially or completely responsible for something, I WILL SAY IT! Devil, damn it! And I won't mince words!
GROW UP! GET OVER YOURSELF, CAT!
You're so caught up in your head that you've convinced yourself to be some kind of an angel but you're nothing else but a holier-than-thou brat! It's childish! Low-class pride...
You even criticized what I told you about the way journalists and anchors have to be natural (it should not look fake) and compelling (so people are interested in watching them again in the future).
You're out of your mind, girl! It's pitiful and pathetic. But you see that as some kind of honour!
You should be ashamed of yourself!
LOL, so, in conclusion, if you choose to be obsessed enough to write songs about me, and then stalk me and freak out on me, since we've never met and I don't know you from Adam - which makes it oh, so normal then, right? - then know that I will put you on my blog, and I will tell others like you to
LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE!
If you don't like my advice, then just accept its the advice I gave you, and go looking for someone else's advice. I'm NOT A FUCKING GURU, GODDESS, OR SAINT, and I don't want to be. I never said I was. I am not a god. I am all about balance, actually, which makes this so much the more funny...I'm not about being too chill or too amped.
I'm not obsessed with obsession. I could give a flying fuck, but I try to help when I'm asked for my help, and sorry, but if you write fucking songs about me and we've never met, it sure as shit says a lot about you. If you have a cry about me and you beg for my help and then tell me my opinion is bullshit - going so far as to tell me I don't deserve a place in Heaven or what is this Casey person? Who the fuck?...well, good for you. You have mastered the art of having an apopleptic crybaby tantrum. That's so zen. That's so mature. That's great.
Listen kids, did you want me to do this to you? Cuz if you're nutty enough to act like this, welcome to the front page of my blog. Stalkers, psychos, and nuts, this is for you.
As for anyone who REALLY wants my advice - if you don't like or disagree with what I say, then just thank me for my time instead of flipping out on me, and quietly walk away. Its what I would do if I thought you were giving me bad advice. Attacking someone unneccisarily because the advice they gave doesn't appeal to you is psycho.
As Sly and the Family Stone once said "Its the truth that the truth makes them so uptight." Well, to the writer of these emails, its the truth what I said, and that's why it upsets you. :D
Anyhow, this one has been asked never to contact me again. :) Hopefully kiddo has that good sense.
As for the rest of you, I'm sorry to have posted this but its the third "fuck you and your fucking advice" I've gotten in three weeks. So, fuck you and your fuck you.
THANK GOD, I also have 23 THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPERB ADVICE letters from the last week and a half. I put them up on my happy wall to remind me there is a reason I do this job. I don't know who's right - my haters or those who like me, - but I am thankful to the divine for just having the chance to be of help when I can be, and if I'm not helpful, to at least have the chance to try.
I am not trying to be a prophet, a messiah, or a leader. I do like helping people, and I do give the best advice I can. Sometimes I hear things that hurt to hear about myself when my friends tell it to me just to be friendly and let me know. At first, maybe I'm defensive, but you know what, that's what good honest advice can do! It points out what you don't want to see. If I can take it and accept it, good. I'm just trying to help.
If you don't want my help, I don't give a fuck. If you ask me for my help, I'm thankful to have the opportunity to try, but since I am not God (and never wanted to be,) I am not infalliable. I have said as much on several occaisions. So, if you ask for my opinion, then I will give it to you, and if you ask for me to give you some advice, I'll give you the best advice I can - but, maybe its not the best out there. I hope it is - goodness knows I've been working with all types of people and if what I'm told is true I have helped hundreds of you, so I have experience, but if I'm wrong or don't give you the best advice, all I can say is I'm human.
As for this guy? I just told you the truth, and didn't say what I said to be mean. I didn't say it to insult you. I said it to help you. Who's the bigger jackass? I got my pointing finger out, and guess what direction its pointing to...
EDITED TO ADD: You know, I am actually thinking that my advice to this fellow was wrong in the sense that omitted that he really has a bad problem with self-control and thinking before acting. Since I also sometimes act on emotion rather than intellect, I do feel for him on that. Hopefully I have far more self-control, of course. So, the problem is obsessiveness, low self-esteem, prizing emotional response over intellect, lack of manners...acting before thinking.... Oh, and also he has the inability to admit to having certain failings.
So, look, I admit, I was wrong in my advice because I didn't point all of that out. With a few of those points I avoided saying so because I didn't want to come off sounding mean.
Now doubt edited versions of my responses will appear all over the interwebs from this fellow. Doesn't strike me as the calm or reasonable type. Well, if he wants a fight I guess he can start one. Me? I'm all set, but would defend myself. At this point unless the dead horse (this guy) gets up and kicks me, I feel no need to go about beating it. If it tries to kick me though, I'll just puree the dead horse! >:)
EDITED LATER TO ADD - Oops, had to call the police on this nutter. He did email despite the warning! He was never even a client of mine, I just helped him for free for a year. That was a lot of mean shit in graditude for all my help over a year or more! Thanks! LOL! Can you say...obsessive freako?
EDITED EVEN LATER TO ADD: This isn't Frater Dantalion, or Fruitspank D or any past person pretending to be someone else, and YES, I know for sure. I thank you for your concern but you are wrong and I can solidly say so. This isn't Effy D, and I have pictures and full names (and even b-dates now,) of both this kid and Effhole Dandalion so...thanks everyone but Fruitbar D is hopefully history forever (and has been quiet for awhile,) and this kid is recent history (hopefully forever.)
Here are my Summer Business Hours for 2009. This means I am not doing any work at the desk. This means whatever you email me won't recieve an answer until I am back at my desk (meaning off of break.) Pre-emptively, the regular hours throughout the year are 9a-5p Eastern Monday through Friday, and I don't work on the weekend. People sending me lots of email on a weekend, if they are a client, show me they don't read my client's section, or the FAQ. ;)
But digressing back - these are the Summer Business Hours (and sorry to my basic readers for being forced to put this here due to lack people reading my announcements area on my business site.) Please take a note as Summer Hours are reduced each year throughout the summer.
22-25, Memorial Day Break
26-29- Tu-Fri, business hours 10:30a-5pm Eastern.
June Business Hours: M-Th 10a-5pm Eastern, Friday, 11a-5p Eastern
July Business Hours - M-F 10a-5p Eastern
Independence Day Vacation - July 1-6

Thank you for reading this if you are a client. If you aren't please ignore. ;)
Mentos are the tooth-taker. I have proof.
Note the filling. I'll be into the dentist on Tuesday, maybe for a filling, probably for a root canal. At least it was the last Mento who pulled half my tooth off - and yes, they were good Mentos.
"Today I'd like to explain what a candle is to all of you. Usually, a candle is a long cylindrical object made of wax with a string called a 'wick' at the end, - it sort of resembles a tampon, but can come in many different shapes. However, I urge you not to use a candle as a tampon, nor to use a tampon as a candle. Lighting your tampon may cause serious injuries."
Hope you liked that, buddy. ;)
For the rest of you...I'm sorry for this perverted disruption to tell you a personal joke, now back to our regularly scheduled program.
Apparently I'm a big meanie for trying to have what I thought was a fun debate, where the other person, who I believed totally into it since they were keeping it up with what I beleived was some dumbing things down (to exaggerate,) and some rude bright red lettering, and etc (smiley emoticons were totally in play on both sides,) and this person actually had a tantrum, wrote out a long diatribe, and fled my Hoodoo For Everyone group. You know, that scream and run off into the night before I can respond thing! Seriously! No, I wasn't trying to be mean!
Can y'all tell me when I'm getting mean? Because that's not me mean. If people think that's me when I am mean, never get me mad, its going to be a rude awakening should you do so. I was having fun and writing up 2 huge responses for both posts, and DAMN! some people are sensitive!
Seriously...next time you see me get mean (I try to be nice most of the time,) just privately contact me and say I'm being mean... Unless I'm burning someone who deserves it like Fruitbar D or a plagurist or something. ;)
Thanks everyone... So much for a fun heated scholarly debate! As I said, if you can't stand the heat, don't light a fire in my kitchen! (Cuz, something's already alwyays cooking in there.)
Can people who like scholarly debates come to the HFE board? I'd be a happier person, and not feel bad when I apparently inadvertantly offended someone who I guess was actually trying to offend me with the dumbing down and red type that I thought was just for fun.
Note to self: use more smiley emoticons so as to scare off less people you think you're debating with.
So, since I don't charge for consult, I've had the last request I've taken (you've been responded to,) to wait for your payment on x day (generally more than a week away in several cases, more like 2 weeks in a few,) for a very, very, very long time. Yes, I don't start work until I'm paid, but if you and I are emailing back and forth, you're taking up my time, and if I know you? I trust you enough to wait... But this is coming from some new clients, so...
If you're going to want work, be ready to pay for it when you request it from me, OR tell me in the opening of the email that I have to wait for several days for you to save up, and i'll just send you a one line or two line price quote, and if I hear from you again around the time you want to pay, we can discuss the work.
Why? Listen, I have $15 in my account. This means my restock ability is nil. If I get paid a lot on one day, then there is a chance I'll run out of materials to work with, and everything with me gets screwed up. Its also more difficult for me to have to go through all of your previous communicae (how many recon requests do you think I get, lol,) to refamiliarize with your spell-plan and your situation.
I appreciate that the economy is insidiously sour, but at this time, there is NO LAY-AWAY at my business anymore. I can't pay my bills with your promises (or my promises you'll pay for that matter,) so please respect that everything I do is costing me money, and I do have to pay the people I owe promptly...which requires prompt payment on the part of the client.
If this doesn't change, consults will no longer be free.
Thanks for your attention in this matter,
PS- if everyone wants more posts up, you better hope I get paid... $15 won't cover my blog fee, and I won't be able to come in here and put up new posts til I pay my blog company. Don't like that? Neither do I.
