Back From New Orleans!

I spent a fabulous 5 days in New Orleans where I attended the 2nd annual Folk Magic Festival . I only took a few of the workshops available, but certainly gained some knowledge from them. I particularly enjoyed the graveyard magic workshop with Orion Foxwood. I also learned a lot by just communicating with the spirits of the city. Collected a some of moss from Bayou St. John, so look for some crafts utilizing that soon. Also got some clay from the bank of the Mississippi that I plan on using in a Jack Ball that I will be certainly be blogging about. I have been inspired by this trip and have so much to share with you all. So stay tuned for a lot of blogs coming your way. Going to to my best to go weekly from now until the end of the year.

I have some spirits that I need to thank here as well.

Thank you Santisima Muerte for your assistance in providing the means for me to take this trip. There is no questioning your power.

Thank You St. Christopher for protecting me in my travels.

Last but not least, thank you Marie Laveau for your answering my call. The first day there, I went to her tomb to leave offerings and ask her to lead me to a teacher or someone that could answer a very important question. A few hours later I was walking toward Dumaine with plans of going to Voodoo museum. I suddenly got the feeling that I should go right instead of left and ended up at Voodoo Authentica which I had not planned on visiting this time out in the city. I found Mama Lola in their doing readings. She took one look at me, laid down the cards, and answered my question without me saying a word. It is going to lead to a major change in my spiritual path.

I can't wait to go back next year!

I'm anxious to hear more! I just skipped over to Wikipedia and read the article on Mama Lola and she's a fascinating lady. What a powerful sign it was to meet such a priestess!
