"A home and family may be blessed in many ways -- with faithful marital love and passion, with good health, with he delights of parenthood -- but if there is no money coming in, tensions tend to increase and happiness flees. The idea behind Money House Blessing is that with a good, steady income, peace and love will reign in the home."
-- The Lucky Mojo Curio Co. catalogue
The label shown here is from a Lucky Mojo brand Money House Blessing Vigil Candle, burned by those who wish to bring peace, plenty, and monetary stability to the home.
The same herbs and fragrances used to dress this candle for customers and clients are the basis of Lucky Mojo Money House Blessing dressing oil . used for anointing oneself, fixing the home, preparing blue offertory candles or feeding a mojo bag. These herbs and scents also can be found in Money House Blessing incense powder, sachet powder, and bath crystals.
Like the rest of the Lucky Mojo line, this product contains genuine herbal essential oils, not synthetic fragrances. The ingredients in Money House Blessing include Bayberry and Basil, plus other herbs and essences. Lucky Mojo labels are adapted from vintage packaging and in many cases the images are as traditional as the ingredients themselves.
Using Money House Blessing spiritual supplies can be as simple as wearing the perfumed oil as a personal scent or placing a few drops in your wallet or purse -- to burning a vigil light once a month in the home or place of business to keep money there all month long. When starting Money House Blessing work, some people like to get things going with a full-blown money spell and then continue to use the oil to dress themselves, their money, home, or a physical location to which they are trying to keep trade.
An important part of African-American hoodoo tradition concerns itself with the undoing of "tricks," jinxes, or "crossed conditions" -- and one of the standard ways to do this is through ritual house cleaning, which may include sweeping, spiritual floor washing, burning ritual incense, sprinkling sachet powders, and using spiritual air fresheners. From apotropaic cleaning to remove nagativity has developed the concept of "lucky" cleaning to draw in good fortune, and since the 1930s, the two types of cleaning products, have existed side by side.
Money House Blessing is a popular brand name for spiritual supplies that is related to a number of other well-known brand names of spiritual supplies:
The above formulas may, of course, be mixed and matched in any way that suits the practitioner, or may be teamed up with formulas from another line of goods, such as a protection formula like Stop Gossip, or a passion and sexual love spell formula like Love Me.
How you choose to use Money House Blessing spiritual supplies is, of course,
up to you, but one very traditional
method is to employ them in conjunction with the 23rd Psalm, while praying for all that is
PSALM 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me. Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. Thou anointest my head with oil. My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Amen.
Once a month, perform a spiritual floor washing to keep both money and happiness in the home. To a large bucket of warm water, add a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of well-shaken Peace Water, and three drops of Money House Blessing dressing oil. Pay special attention to washing the doors, as this is where money will enter the home. (If you don't have time to wash the entire home, at least do the door frames.)
As you work, recite the 23rd Psalm of the Bible ("The Lord is my shepherd, i shall not want...").
When you have completed the cleaning, light a Money House Blessing Vigil Candle in the room you use most often. Empty out your pockets, wallet, or purse, and place any coins or bills you are carrying under the candle as a faith offering. Pray over this money, and dress it with Money House Blessing dressing oil.
When the candle has finished burning, which should take several days, use the dressed and prayed-over money to buy things to beautify and maintain the home -- hire a plumber, pick up some cleaning supplies, indulge your taste for lovely home decor, splurge on fresh flowers, make a down payment on that furniture you've always wanted, select a set of matching towels, buy new plants for the garden, or something of that sort. By using the faith offering for the home and sending it out into the world, more money will come back to your home.
