Hoodoo Rootwork, or Southern Conjure

Hoodoo Rootwork: A History

When enslaved African peoples were brought over to the United States beginning in the mid-1600s, they brought with them the ancient wisdom traditions practiced by their ancestors for millenia. These not only included remedies for healing bodily ailments through the use of herbs and other materials found in nature, but how to work with them to effect change on the material, emotional, and spiritual planes. This holistic worldview saw no difference between the inner and the outer, or the subtle and the manifest.

These enslaved practitioners found themselves without access to the botanicals they were familiar with. Through friendships formed with American Indian peoples in the "New World," they learned which plants would make keen substitutions in their formulas, ranging from those that enhanced strength and virility to those that invoked protective forces and promoted conjugal relations - and everything in between.

Over the next two-and-a-half centuries, Southern Protestant "hoodoos" came into contact with the traditions of the German Pennsylvania Dutch, Irish Catholics, Jewish Americans, and the rites and symbols found in English ceremonial magic grimoires, fleshing out what would become a uniquely American form of spiritual work. Hoodoo became a syncretic melange of practices and continues to remain flexible and adaptable with techniques being utilized across the world by those who find regional variations and modern innovations to be effective for them.

Still, its lore and beauty are most evident in its more traditional forms, dating back to the time before the migration of Southern U.S. African-Americans to the North in the early 20th century. This era was heralded and recorded in the works of American anthropologists and Southern blues musicians of both fame and infamy with author Zora Neale Hurston, folklorist Harry M. Hyatt, guitarist Tommy Johnson, and singer Ma Rainey among them.

The Hoodoo Rootworker: A Spiritual Doctor

RootworkerConjurerTwo-Headed Doctor. These fairly interchangeable terms all refer to someone with a cultivated knowledge of herbs, roots, minerals, and zoological curios and their effective employment toward attaining material and spiritual goals. Successful rootworkers are often considered "gifted for the work," and may have experienced signs early in their lives that hinted at (or made use of) a profound intuitive sense, the ability to manifest outcomes through thought and word, a talent for channeling spiritual entities, an adeptness at working with plants and animals, or other talents. Professional rootworkers are almost always in tune with personal guides and ancestral guardians that guide them in their work, provide them with intuitive insight, and lend a hand when they are taking on difficult cases.

As spiritual doctors, rootworkers are able to reach into life’s crevices to help transform conditions and circumstances that practitioners of other professions might not be able to. They are gifted, and often trained, to work with tools from the natural world and powerful spiritual allies to help bring about real change in all of life’s arenas. Working with the subtle energies that make up our world, a skilled hoodoo rootdoctor can shift the odds in your life to help you find love, heal from past wounds, cultivate strength and financial abundance, find justice, and reach a myriad of other goals as needed or desired in your life.

Rootdoctors are also adept at seeing when efforts toward a certain goal - such as healing, love, money, or employment - are hindered not by mundane means but by energetic disturbances and blocks that can be removed through the use of spiritual medicine in the form of baths, teas, candle work, hands-on cleansing, and ritual.

Why Should I Work With a Hoodoo Rootdoctor?

With a hoodoo rootdoctor, you get the benefits of having intuition, foresight, and custom tools for wellness and success.

Having a spiritual medium and hoodoo rootdoctor as part of your support system can provide tremendous benefits to you and your loved ones. In addition to the psychic intuitive insight that a gifted professional can provide regarding your life path, decisions, and well-being, a hoodoo rootdoctor can equip you with spirituals tools and medicine that can help you heal, help you grow, and help you reach your goals in nearly every life arena. They can:

  • provide you with personalized tools and guidance for attaining success,
  • help you navigate a new career or love interest,
  • and even help you choose professionals in other trades to work with by providing insight into what you can expect from their services and your interaction with them.

As humanity's exploration of quantum physics continues, many are beginning to see the physical world as merely a reflection of the subtle, spiritual realm - something Southern conjurers, shamans, and practitioners of indigenous spiritualities have always known. The insight and practices of a hoodoo rootdoctor can support you from the ground up with holistic techniques grounded in the interconnectedness of your spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. 

What makes hoodoo different than other consciousness-focused or "alternative" wellness modalities that are focused solely on changing thought patterns or shifting energy is that it honors an important fact of the world: you are connected to everything and there is help for whatever you're going through.

Hoodoo rootdoctors know the allies in the plant, mineral, animal, and spiritual realms that can help you get the results you're looking for and the success you deserve. They can aid you in your quests for material gain, emotional fulfillment, and spiritual evolution. Working with an ethical and professional hoodoo rootdoctor who knows how to tap into these forms can help you manifest what you desire.

Hoodoo - also known as "Rootwork" or "Southern Conjure" - is a wellness modality andsystem of folk magic that couples the use of natural elements such as herbs, roots, minerals, and zoological curios with prayer, intent, and sometimes the intercession of Saints, deities, and the deceased, including one's own ancestors. Though it draws on American Indian, Northern European, and Jewish Kabbalistic techniques and tools, the roots of Hoodoo are steeped in Southern African-American folk traditions and the Congo practices of Africa that even these are derived from.

Hoodoo is not New Orleans Voodoo, Haitian Vodou, nor Santeria, Palo, or any other religio-magical practices borne from the African diaspora. These, like all religious traditions, are beautiful and affirming when practiced wisely and with love, but hoodoo is unique partly because of its lack of religious structure - it is not a religion, it has no initiations, and it is incredibly adaptable to the spiritual paths and needs of those who practice it. It is a powerful tool for creating change, no matter your creed or nationality.

Three years ago I contacted you with tons of marital problems.  You did uncrossing, binding, and many more spells for me to be able to have my husband back in my life. All that you told me has come to pass and now we have been reconciled for the past 5 months and we are doing better than before thanks to you and your wonderful support and prayers.

As I sit in court and write you this review, my lawyer has already told me my case will be dismissed due to a technicality. I knew it would work. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU KHI! I am beyond happy for this and know it absolutely could not have been done without you. This case has been going on for over a year and my lawyer told me that we will probably have to go to trial within the next few months. I wish I could see you in person to give you the biggest hug and express my deepest and sincerest gratitude. I want to say that I'm in shock but given your track record for success with court cases, I'm not at all surprised. I cannot even begin to express my gratitude. This is truly a blessing because I thought it would never end and it finally has. What a RELIEF! Anyone that needs special work done that they do not think is possible, get Khi to help!

This is a message to you all who are looking for help in all areas of your life - a great THANK YOU to Khi! I found Khi by recommendation from my sister, and what an inspiration Khi is. He introduced me to working with San Simón who has become apart of my life in a great way. My life was dull, and horrid for a long time and he gave me direction and hope for the better. I will always continue to work with Khi. He's an understanding and brilliant Rev. who is always at your side in time of need!

Thank you Khi for your help and continuous work to help improve my life again.

Omg, where do I begin? Khi Armand is so gentle, sincere and friendly, it is impossible not to love him to pieces! Khi did work for my son who is locked up. There was so much red tape and confusion going on with his case that I threw in the towel, but I came across Khi Armand and he divined about the work I needed in my consultation and started to work on the case. Everytime my son would get a date in court, nothing would happen and they wouldn’t even bring him to court. After Khi did the work, my son’s judge was switched to a favorable judge who is fair and had a lot of compassion. But then his judge was changed again to a judge so mean that it was a nightmare.

Yet, after 11 months waiting in custody, he finally got in the courtroom (I wish I had known about Khi much earlier) on December 19 and that mean stern judge smiled at my son on several occasions. I was stunned. The judge stopped everything and said he wanted to sentence my son right now instead of coming back later. And he sentenced him to 5 years probation instead of 49 years in jail! Oh God, Khi really worked this extremely hard case. My son will be getting out soon. He is a good guy and its weird that he was even involved with this mess. Thank you so much Khi! Now my son has a chance at life again because of Khi’s skill and dedication to his rootwork. I’ll always be grateful to Khi as this had taken a very serious toll on me and added to my already weak health. I recommend Khi if you’re in any problem because he really wants to help. If you or someone you know is in trouble, get a consultation with Khi Armand because he absolutely specializes in court cases.

He is a kind, friendly individual and a skillful rootworker who takes his work seriously. Very professional and very friendly. I was in an emotional plateau and he performed a Setting of Lights for me about ten days ago; a Road Opener and a Kiss Me Now! and at the second day after the candle burning was completed; I was at my work (I work as a cashier in a beach bar) and three different girls at different times of the day (all happened at the same day) just walked and sat by me and started chit chatting. They were very friendly and affectionate and all gave me their phone numbers. It has never happened to me before.

Also from the Road Opener, I have started seeing great results; like making new friends and feeling a special type of charisma. Setting of Lights is a great way for a conjure worker to work with you. With the email, you can send out your photo and details no matter how far you are. Bottom line: Khi is a great guy! I'm glad that I found you Khi!

- G.A., Greece

Khi is such a good spirtual advisor to have. He is the best. I had been [crossed by] roots or hoodoo for over seven years until I found Khi. He helped me and my entire family get a new start and a fresh beginning, and also prayed for my sister who has been terminally ill. I thank God for leading me in the right direction for finding Khi. When you are looking for someone on the internet you can sometime run across a lot of fakes, but Khi is the real deal, so if you are having any kind of unatural problems or you are in hoodoo please let Khi help you.

- J.M. & C.M., Valdosta, GA

My wife and I were in desperate need of help financially, so we decided to seek Khi's help. Khi gave us a stunningly accurate reading, hitting the nail on the head and even asked if my wife wanted to pursue her own business (well, that's been my wife's dream, which she always talks about) and we got a positive affirmation in that category. Khi recommended some cleansing rootwork and also some money drawing rootwork. Shortly after, we took a trip to see family in another country. Needless to say, it was a trip that we couldn't even afford. We fretted over spending too much money and thought we wouldn't enjoy it.

Little did we know that the rootwork was already in effect. We ran into old friends and family and they wouldn't let us pay for anything - not dinner, transportation, anything. We were getting slipped envelopes of money from them telling us it's been awhile and congratulating us on our marriage. We were getting $100's and $200's here and there and even a $1000! It got to the point where we realized this was not a coincidence. Upon returning, my wife has been getting bigger tips at work and much nicer clientele and I have recently received some job opportunities. Working with Khi was the best decision we made. If you're reading this don't wait any longer!

Khi has helped me tap into the truest and clearest parts of myself, into the subconscious, sublime elements of my being. With his guidance, I found the powerful spirit guide who has granted me success in my work, a sense of peace and security in my home, and a healthy, fulfilling relationship with a partner I love. Khi's skills as a Rootworker and Reader are invaluable, and his focus on personal realization and ownership of one's own fate has empowered me to connect with my own spirituality on a deeper, more intimate level than ever before.

- K.D., New York, NY

Khi's work is nothing short of amazing. I had been single and unsuccessfully looking for over a year when he made me a True Love Mojo Hand. In less than three weeks I met my girlfriend and we've been together for almost a year.

- A.G., New York, NY

Khi emailed me April 1st and told me that he had lit my Blockbuster candle, and on April 12th I started to notice some changes because I was called for a job and I have not worked since 2008. I was so happy and I said to myself that Khi does know what he is doing because now I have a job. Also, a week and a half after Khi lit the candle, my life changed in a way that I never imagined because I met the love of my life. I am so happy that whatever Khi did led this man to me. I mean this man is more than everything that I could ever want in a man. I am smiling as I write this because I am more happy than I have been in a long time. I thank him and GOD for blessing me and continuing to bless and help me.

Khi did a double Setting of Lights for me, Blockbuster & St. Expedite, because it was imperative that I move out of my horrid living situation. Within days of this work, major doors opened & a 29-year old curse / block was removed with Khi & good ole St. Expedite's help. A change that I could never imagine became my reality! Within weeks of the victory things were going so good that I was a featured muse in an art gallery where a celebrity couple purchased the painting and I was spotted twice on TV. Amazing!

- K.C., Brooklyn, NY

I opened the package with my mojo hand this morning and have never experienced anything like this. Like, I’ve done a few spells before, even made a talisman or two for myself, and they’ve done things for me, but I haven’t felt them so concretely. But from the minute I put the mojo hand on my skin, I felt entirely different. This was like some Harry-Potter-gets-a-wand s***. I felt way more confident and together today than I have in weeks. It’s been such a dramatic shift from the minute I put the mojo hand on...it’s almost crazy to me. You have a gift, sir. Thank you.

- V.H., Brooklyn, NY

Khi is a blessing, and I mean that to the fullest extent. The work he did for me was emergency work for a very, very critical situation. I honestly can't stress how dire this situation was, but basically it had to do with my boyfriend and some serious issues he was facing because of people that just wanted to cause him trouble.

The work he did was amazing! I have no doubt that if Khi had not done the work that he did, my boyfriend would have been placed in a compromising position that I can tell you would not have ended well. Khi had the heat turned off him and completely reversed what was going against him. I was so happy after I talked to my boyfriend after the three days of emergency work he did. I literally did a silent happy dance! There is no possible way that outcome could have come without the assistance of Khi and his work. I cannot give intimate details just because of the sensitivity of the case, but trust when I say, this was very critical, very stressful, and quite essentially almost life-altering. And Khi made everything smooth out like it was supposed to!

I cannot recommend him enough. You will not only get a caring and vibrant person to work with but also someone who is very skilled, very thorough and a genuinely good person who wants to see you succeed!

- M.A., Boise, ID

Blessings to you Khi for the wonderful San Simón bottle talisman you made for me! The first time I placed a request with San Simón and invited him into my life and home, the wonders began! My life has been in a dark place for some years, I cannot begin to tell you. San Simón stepped into my life and changed my faith to believe again. He granted me my home, more income, and paid my bills when they needed to be paid! This man is amazing! I'm now happy to open my mail!

- C.Y., United Kingdom

I know now that what you have told me about this ancestral jinx causing my love problems is indeed a fact! My mother confirmed it! It goes all the way back to something that had happened to my great-grandmother. I will be working on everything we had talked about and than I will book another reading! Thank for taking your time with this reading and explaining so much to me. THANK YOU!
