Melvyn emailed me from Iowa yesterday. Everything had nose-dived in his life – love, money, career and luck. And he wanted to know how best to turn it all around.
Conjure water is similar to holy water found in the Christian church and in voodoo and other folk magic traditions.
I make up a bottle and leave it overnight at a lonely country crossroads a few miles from me to charge it with numinous energy.
The idea is to sprinkle a few drops on yourself before doing anything important – say before going out on a first date with someone special. Or you could sprinkle some on your résumé before mailing it to potential employers. You could also sprinkle a few drops on your car before going on a long journey, to keep yourself safe from accidents.
Conjure water is an all round voodoo magic tool – alchemically transformed at a place of power – to act quickly in any situation you need turned to your advantage.
Anyway, Melvyn went for five bottles of conjure water to keep him going, and a lucky voodoo doll to get his life back on track.
