A mojo hand is a voodoo amulet – a drawstring bag containing the ingredients of a spellworking. These can be roots, herbs, and stones or other magic items.
The roots of mojo hands go back to Africa and to other traditions of magic and sorcery. Most cultures would use a small bag to keep their magical artefacts in.
The ingredients that go into a mojo hand become alive with numinous power after a voodoo ritual has been performed. You time a ritual according to the phases of the moon or the position of the sun.
Does a mojo hand ritual involve spirits?
Calling on spirits is part of the ritual practice to charge mojo hands. To gain the help of the spirits you create sigils. These are hand-drawn glyphs on paper or parchment. They instruct the spiritual powers to charge the ritual items, such as herbs and roots, with numinous power, according to your special needs – i.e. the intention of the ritual.
The intention of a ritual is your desire or wish. It could be to bring love into your life. To return a lost lover. To draw money. Or to remove a hex or get rid of bad neighbours.
Where do you conduct mojo hand rituals?
They can be performed at home. Or you can go to a place of power, such as an old graveyard, country crossroads or ancient monument like a stone circle. Ruined churches are fine too.
Ideally, you make sure nobody else is likely to be around. Partly because you don’t want to be disturbed. And also you don’t want to scare people.
Can a mojo hand really bring changes in my life?
A mojo hand can in prove your situation. Sometimes to a surprising degree. It’s almost like a self-development tool. One that works on your subconscious mind via the spirits and the occult realm. It is the powerhouse within. The “belief engine” that gets things done.
Your subconscious mind works tirelessly night and day to improve your life. But sometimes when there’s negativity in your life, your subconscious will bring about the things you don’t want.
This is where a mojo hand comes in. It acts as a “helping hand” to get your subconscious back on track and bringing positivity into your life.
