Spellmaker Newsletter

March 2018

Hello everyone,
Is it really March already?  Is March almost halfway over?  Yikes!  We are headed towards our annual wealth and security ritual to the mighty lwa, Sobo  You can be included for free, of course!  Just head over to  http://www.spellmaker.com/sobo.htm  not only to see how to be included, but there also instructions there for a ritual you can do yourself.

We begin our ritual on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, and then we continue it through the end of the month.  You can send your petition/request to be included anytime starting now and through the end of the month; the sooner, the better, obviously!

What are we asking of our dear Sobo?  While we call it "wealth and security" that might mean different things to different people.  The obvious request is for money.  But maybe wealth and security means something different for you.  Maybe you want a wealth of friends, the security of good health, an abundance of  opportunity, etc.  Sobo is often associated with money. His traditional song is about us being assured - money in our hand, money in our pocket, money in the bank.  Naturally we turn to him for that!  But if your needs or ideas about wealth, abundance, and security are different than the traditional ones, you should not be afraid to ask for what is right for you!

Of course, this is also a great time to do any money, wealth, or prosperity magick!  Well, all times are great for money magick, right? :-)  But, for us, this is our month that we really dedicate not just to our own abundance, but abundance for all.  It's a grand thing to think that maybe one day we will reach that sci-fi existence of not needing money anymore. Hey, we can dream! Meanwhile, we do money magick!

We hope you will all get involved with sending in your request.  We look forward to doing this ritual!  

Wishing you all peace, abundance, and prosperity!
Mambo Sam and Parran Matt



Ready for some spring cleaning??

Marie Laveau House Blessing Kit

Shake those spiritual cobwebs right out of your home!  While we often use this kit to ring in the new year, it is also a great spring cleaning tool to get that fresh start, get rid of any ick that might be lurking around, and just generally make everything around you lighter! 

There is no better way to start looking forward to spring than getting your space spiritually clean!

Of course, it is always a 
good time for spiritual cleaning for yourself, too! Personal spring cleaning is a thing, right? 


Let's talk about social media!

We would love some feedback from everyone! (And we're willing to make it worth your while - read on!)  It's a fairly simple question with probably some complex answers:  What do you want to see from us on social media?  We try to keep up with the various forms of social media and posting things that we hope are useful, fun, enlightening... but what do you really want to see? We would love to hear from you because you are our audience, the people that we want to connect with, get to know, have relationships with!  If we can do more (or less!) to foster that, then we would love to know about it.  Do you have burning questions that you would like to see on social media?  Would you like to see more things that teach you something?  Do you want to see more fun things?  Do you want to see more things that are personal about us?  

Also, what are your favorite social media venues?  Where would you like to see more? What is most convenient for you?  What about blogging? Yes, no, you don't have time to read long blog posts? 

Lastly, what are we missing??  What should be doing on social media that we aren't?  Is there a venue we don't use, but you love it?  Tell us! 

If you will write to Faith at 
customerservice@spellmaker.com  with your suggestions and thoughts, we would love to hear from you.  

So what's in it for you, you ask? Well, of course, getting to see what you want to see from us on social media.  But in the spirit of the Month of Sobo, Faith will choose her three top favorite social media ideas and those three people will each get a $15.00 gift certificate!  We really look forward to your ideas!  (There are some links below to some of our social media accounts so you can see what we have been doing and let us know how to improve!)
Tarot readings are probably the most popular form of reading there is.  We've all had one!  Right? Wait, you haven't?  Well, you should.  You can get a great, low cost reading from our own Sister Bridget Corfield!  Her readings are accurate and great for your budget. 


The Quick Communication Spell
Yes, indeed, this is an oldie but goodie!
A friend requested that I post it again, and so here it is! 

Hello everyone!  Many times throughout the course of spell work we are not in communication with the person we are working on.  This might be temporary due to circumstances or it might be due to the fact that you have lost all communication with the person.  It is so difficult sometimes NOT to be in contact with that special person.  I completely understand that and am offering you this "Quick Communication Spell" that you can use to try to help foster a contact with your intended!

Now please understand, there are some periods of time in spell work when it may actually be better NOT to be in communication with the object of your desire.  For instance, sometimes things are too rocky between you and the communication will degenerate into an argument or harsh words.   As you all know, that is not good for your spell work.  :-) But no worries with the little "quick spell" outlined below:  If you are not supposed to be in communication with your HD, it simply won't work for you. 

Here's what you need:

  • Two gender-specific figure candles (one to represent you, one to represent the person you want to contact you).  You can use ones from candle magick kits from us - white, pink, or red will work fine and you can even do this spell with candles you are using right now as long as it is for the same person.  (NOTE:  You can try this with just regular candles if that is all you have.  If you try it and it works not using figure candles, let us know! We would love to hear about it!)
  • Some kind of picture that represents the form of communication you want to use (a picture of a phone, computer, etc.).

Here's what you do:

  • One candle represents you and one candle represents the person you want to communicate with you.  (If using our candle magick kits, you still will do all the "regular" instructions of the candle kit.)
  • Face the candles towards each other, so that they are "looking" at each other, about six inches apart.
  • On the picture of the communication form write:  "Johnny (insert the name of your HD), I want to hear from you.  Please call (or email, or whatever you have chosen) me.  I promise this will be a good communication for both of us."    (And you have to really mean that - don't use this spell if you are angry and are going to be upset or petulant when the person calls! You will be defeating your own purpose.)
  • Place the picture on the table (or other surface you are using) with the writing facing upwards.
  • Do the normal ritual for the candle magick kits (if that is what you are using), this time meditating only on communicating with this person, how well the conversation will go, what nice things you will talk about, etc. (If you are using these candles for another purpose, you can return to that purpose next session.)
  • When you are finished with the ritual and have extinguished the candles, pour a little bit of the candle wax from both candles (at the same time) on the paper.  Concentrate on you and the person "melding" together in conversation.  It just takes a small amount. Be careful not to burn yourself!
  • When the candle wax is cooled and hardened, fold the paper in on itself (over the candle wax). If the paper doesn't stay together, you can tie it with string or ribbon so that it makes a nice, neat little package.
  • Keep the paper somewhere safe until you hear from the person you are wanting to contact you OR seven days has passed.  (If you are doing spell work, you can keep the paper on your altar.  If you working with a love doll you can keep the paper with the doll.  You can keep the paper with any of our magickal work that you might be doing.)  Once you have heard from them OR seven days have passed, you can just throw the paper away - that spell is done. It either works within seven days or it doesn't work (for whatever reason).  If it didn't work in seven days, try it again!  :-)  It really does work quite often.  However, as I said, sometimes there is a REASON you are not in communication with a person. On the other hand, it doesn't hurt to try and this is relatively easy to do.  :-) 

General Info:  This spell would be categorized as a "one time" spell - it doesn't mean the person will keep communicating with you necessarily.  So you may need to do it again.   For some people with whom communication is sparse or difficult, it might be a good idea to keep a set of candles around to work with just for this spell.

Have fun!
Love,  Mambo Sam
P.S.  If you don't have candles, time, or a place to do this spell, we do offer a 
3-day Budget Spell called Contact Me that is a suitable alternative!
