Though lighting candles is a common practice across many spiritual and magical paths, there are lots of different ways to do this that come specifically from hoodoo tradition. Traditionally you must interact with the candle and work it to manifest your goals. The simple act of lighting the candle is powerful, but to direct and guide and shape that power, you add more layers by shaping, dressing, and working it.

Why is this content protected?

The internet has become an incredible platform for sharing about rootwork and helping our community connect with each other to reclaim our heritage in these traditions. Unfortunately, publicly posting also opens up a whole world of possibilities for cultural appropriation, spreading misinformation, and other issues…

For all these reasons, the Library is only accessible to those who have an approved Library account in order to keep all the content in the hands of those who truly can practice hoodoo. Only people of African descent have the ancestral link to rootworking traditions that is necessary to practice them.
