A SIMPLE CROWN OF SUCCESS MOJO BAG
For an increase in self-assurance, personal power, leadership qualities, and recognition in your career search, while you are being evaluated, on the job, in school, or on stage, prepare yourself a Crown of Success mojo bag. There are many other herbal, mineral, and zoological curios that can be included in such a bag because they are reputed to give you a steady mind, good work habits, eloquence in speech, and the ability to make successful plans, but here are seven items to choose from. The number of ingredients is not crucial, but most folks recommend that you use an odd number of items in mojo bag. Sew up or purchase a red or yellow flannel draw-string bag. If you can get a gold-coloured metal crown charm, sew it on the outside of the bag. Inside the bag place:
Tear a piece of brown paper from a bag so that no side is machine-cut, and all four sides are neatly even. Write your specific wish for success on the paper, then turn the paper sideways and cross and cover the wish with your own name, written 9 times. Dress the paper with Crown of Success Oil at the four corners and fold it toward you to draw the wish in. Turn it sideways and fold it in toward you again, and then place it in the bag, saying as you do so, "May all my works be crowned with success."
The strength of this (or any other) mojo hand can be enhanced by fixing it up in conjunction with a candle-burning spell. For instance, to combine this mojo hand with the Crown of Success spell given below, fix the bag up on the first night of candle-burning, after you light the candle and incense, but before you anoint yourself with the oil. After preparing the mojo, pass it through the incense smoke and candle flame, and dress it with Crown of Success Oil. Carry the mojo hand bag on your person where no one can see or touch it. It can be placed in a brief case or a purse if not worn on the person. If your career involves appearing on stage in clothes such that you cannot carry a mojo bag at all, then at least prepare the brown paper as described and wear it folded up in your right shoe, as a form of foot-track magic.
If buying all of the herbs and minerals ingredients found in this mojo hand is daunting to you, you can order a ready-prepared Crown of Success Mojo or Triple Strength Crown of Success Mojo from the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. occult shop. Your mojo hand will contain several more items, and it will be prepared and prayed over for you, and will come with full instructions for use.
DRESSING PAPERS WITH CROWN OF SUCCESS
When turning in a job application, manuscript for publication, or essay test papers, that is submitted in the form of printed text pages, dress each page individually with Crown of Success Sachet Powder. Here's how: On the back of each page, sprinkle Crown of Success Sachet Powder. Drag your four fingers down through the sachet powder, top to bottom of the page, in "wavy snake lines." Then shake off the powder. This is called "dressing a letter" or "dressing papers." Next, light some Crown of Success Incense Powders and waft the entire set of pages in the fumes before sending it out. This is called "smoking" the letter or papers.
(By the way, this same technique can used for legal matters -- but with Court Case Powder and Incense instead of Crown of Success; to dress or smoke love letters for use in love spells, use any of the love sachet powders and incenses, such as Love Me or Come to Me, depending on the circumstances.)
If the material you wish to dress is only to be submitted in disk format, don't sprinkle sachet powders on the disk -- but do dress the 4 corners very lightly with Crown of Success Oil and then smoke it in Crown of Success Incense before sending it out.
Another thing that folks do to strengthen a dressed letter or dressed papers is to bathe in the appropriate form of herb bath or bath crystals (Crown of Success in this case), then seal the envelope you mail things in with a bit of your own bath water.
A VERY SIMPLE, STRIPPED-DOWN CROWN OF SUCCESS CANDLE SPELL
A Crown of Success spell may be employed when you want to increase your personal performance skills and enhance your reputation among those who might evaluate your performance or judge you. Success spells come in all manner of styles, and a full spell will include ritual bathing to begin the work, the use of anointing oils, the burning of incense, and dressing oneself or documents with sachet powders. You may order a very strong Crown of Success Spell Kit from the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. -- or try this minimalist Crown of Success spell that requires merely
Using a needle, pin, or small pocket knife, carve the word "SUCCESS" on the candle 9 times in a continuous spiral, like the stripes on a barber pole. Dress the candle with Crown of Success Oil. Make up a cone of the Crown of Success Incense. Before you are due to go to your job interview, take your test, submit your resume, turn in your manuscript, or go to your performance venue, light the candle and hold it aloft in your hand, facing East and saying, "May all my works be crowned with success."
Next, light the incense, again saying, "May all my works be crowned with success." Finally, dip your finger in the oil and then anoint your eyebrows and the crown of your head with Crown of Success Oil, saying, "May [insert specific details, e.g. 'my studies,' 'my job search,' 'my performance on stage tonight,' etc.] be crowned with success."
Let the candle burn down until one entire "SUCCESS" word is consumed, then pinch it out (do not blow it out) and go to the place where you will prove your worth. Repeat each night for 9 nights until the candle is finished. If the performance, job search, manuscript submission process, or testing period runs for a long time, you may get another candle and continue this spell each night.
In addition to the free spells found on this page, you can also order a ready-prepared Crown of Success Spell Kit from the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. occult shop. All the ingredients you will need to perform the spell are included, along with full instructions.
