EK's STAR LOG
CATEGORY ARCHIVES:
GYPSY MAGIC

As has been requested (endlessly) EK's Star Log is returning to the internet. You can still read the original archive here... https://eelkat.wordpress.com 

The reason you couldn't find it is because I set it to private un-index mode, meaning it no longer shows up in Google search results and can only be accessed by a direct link.

Meaning, if you didn't have the url for it, no amount of searching for it would tell you how to find it. Anyone who had the url could still access it though.

I had set it to private September 23, 2013, intending to move each page here to EelKat.com... however, November 14, 2013, after only moving about 30 pages, I was beaten up and left paralyzed for 5 months, then spent 18 months relearning to walk. I am still crippled and have limited mobility.

Below is one of the blog posts that originally appeared on EK's Star Log. The original articles are still online but no longer indexed in Google. Links to the original article, are included with this post, as is the original posting date. Clicking the links will take you to the original site, where you can see the old Space Dock 13 website still online. Space Dock 13 as it looked when hosted on WordPress from 2003 to 2013.

Who Initiated You? 

FAQs: Who initiated you? By what authority do you do these things; what laying on of hands gave you this power? What paradigm are you part of? What path do you follow? Who were your teachers? How can I learn to do what you do?

FAQs: Who initiated you? 

Each of these questions was asked separately by separate individuals, but I am combining them together as one, because each in essence is the same question, asking the same thing, with different  use of wording:

Who initiated you? 

By what authority do you do these things; what laying on of hands gave you this power?

What paradigm are you part of?

What path do you follow?

Who were your teachers?

How can I learn to do what you do?

Can you see how each question, though different is also the same?

My Answer:

Let’s look at each question individually, shall we?

Who initiated you? 

Initiated? You suggest that my job has religious connections.

You are of the false assumption that to be a magical being requires the permission of a religion. I’m sorry, but I’m not a religion crazed creep like you. I have free will. I don’t answer to no man. No one bosses me around.

No one tells me what to do.

Initiations, baptisms, and passing down of authority from one person to another, is a strictly religion thing to do, and there ain’t no religion in what I do.

Why would I require initiation?

I am not the slave of some coven priest.

Why would I require initiation?

I am not the slave of some church priesthood. I am free, just the way God made me, why would I want to tell God he made me wrong when he made me free?

By giving up my freedom to some church, coven, or religion, I turn my back on God.

By becoming part of some church, coven, or religion, I tell God he didn’t know what he was doing.

By following the leaders of some church, coven, or religion, I tell God he ain’t good enough for me to be my personal Lord Almighty.

By joining some church, coven, or religion, I tell God that I believe men have more power and authority than he does.

To be initiated into anything is to insult God and bitch slap him right across the face. And why would I do that?

By what authority do you do these things; what laying on of hands gave you this power? 

By the authority given to me by the God of Creation. He created me. He made me what I am. No human lay hands on me.

No human has the right.

No human has the power.

Humans are just humans.

Any Human who comes to you and says that you can not do a thing, without them first using their authority of laying on of hands to bless you and endow you with power, is nothing more than a power hungry, pompous, self-righteous, deluded jackass.

Again, you suggest that my job has religious connections.

Let me repeat it for you...

You are of the false assumption that to be a magical being requires the permission of a religion. I’m sorry, but I’m not a religion crazed creep like you. By what authority, does any man claiming to have a authority, get his authority? Why should I take orders from a man instead of from God? I have free will. I don’t answer to no man. No one bosses me around. No one tells me what to do.

Why would I require initiation? I am not the slave of some coven priest. Why would I require initiation? I am not the slave of some church priesthood. I am free, just the way God made me, why would I want to tell God he made me wrong when he made me free? By giving up my freedom to some church, coven, or religion, I turn my back on God. By becoming part of some church, coven, or religion, I tell God he didn’t know what he was doing. By following the leaders of some church, coven, or religion, I tell God he ain’t good enough for me to be my personal Lord Almighty. By joining some church, coven, or religion, I tell God that I believe men have more power and authority than he does. To be initiated into anything is to insult God and bitch slap him right across the face.

What paradigm are you part of? 

You’ll have to wait while I go, Google that word, because I’ve never heard it before and I have no idea what it means, what you are asking, or what the heck it is you want to know.

Okay, paradigm, seems to be another term for religion and is used in lue of the word religion when talking about magic arts.

Various paradigms include: Wicca, Gardenarian Witchcraft, Druidism, Vudon, Alchemy, etc.

No. I’m not part of any group.

I don’t belong to a coven, I don’t attend a church, I don’t sit around like a brainless drone being told what to do and when to do it.

Again, you suggest that my job has religious connections. You are of the false assumption that to be a magical being requires the permission of a religion. I’m sorry, but I’m not a religious crazed creep like you. I have free will. I don’t answer to no man. No one bosses me around. No one tells me what to do.

Yes, I am gonna keep saying it until you get it through your head that you are a free spirit. Your soul belongs to you and you alone. You are not owned by a church. No church has God locked up and kept prisoner.

God doesn't sit in a church, men do. God made nature. God made you. Worship the creator not the creation.

What path do you follow?

Again, you suggest that my job has religious connections. You are of the false assumption that to be a magical being requires the permission of a religion. I’m sorry, but I’m not a religon crazed creep like you. I have free will. I don’t answer to no man. No one bosses me around. No one tells me what to do.

I am by race and culture a Scottish Traveller Gypsy, that fact alone means everything I do is done with the help of Faeries. Not cute, fluffy bunny Wicca flower fairies that ain’t nothing but simpering pansies, but real Faeries the Far-Darrigs, the Phookas, Red Caps, Polter Spirits,Leprechauns,  Nixies, and Banshees…the people of the Mists, the dancers of the Fogs, the dwellers of Twighlight.

I am a natural born Hedgewalker with an eye that can see beyond the veil which separates or realms and hides the Fae from humans. I practice the magic arts of my people: Hoodoo. I am a Hoodoo Witch Doctor, like my grandmothers before me and their gandmothers before them.

I did not learn magic from books or correspondence schools, nor did them whom taught me.

And there ain’t no African American folk magic in the Hoodoo I do.

I do old Hoodoo, the way it was, when my people taught it to the African slave 300 years ago, the way it was when my people brought it to the Americas from Scotland 400 years ago, the way it was, when my ancestors from to Scotland from Siberia 2000 years ago.

That is the path I follow. The path of my people, the path of the Gypsies, the path of the Tinckers, the path of the Scottish Travellers, the path of my ancestors.

How can I learn to do what you do?

Join a Gypsy Caravan, marry into a Gypsy Clan, become the apprentice to a Gypsy rootworker.

Much of Gypsy magic and Hoodoo comes from the Bible.

Read the Bible.

The instructions are all there.  

Read it and do what it says.

Learn your Bible well, know it inside out. Read it every day, cover to cover, and when you get done, read it again.

Never stop reading it.

After the 20 or 30 time, you’ll begin to see: the root recipes of Jacob, the incantations of Daniel, the mighty words of Jesus…when at last you see them, use them in your magic.

Old Gypsy magic, which pre-dates the Bible, comes from the realm of Fae. The Spirits of Hoodoo are dangerous beings, wild and violent, whom live among us, every day, unseen, unheard, walking beside us in a dimension which exists on Earth. They do not see us, we do not see them.

But there are those among our people and theirs who can see through the Hedge which veils our world, they are known as The Hedgewalkers, people who exists neither here nor there, but walking freely in both worlds, passing through the Hedge at will.

Gypsy rootworkers, are chosen as small children, chosen by the elders for their ability to see and communicate with the Fae.

Unlike the nonGypsy who quelshes the gift and ridicules the child, accusing them of imaginary friends, the Gypsy encourage the communication between child and Fae. To Hoodoo is to speak one on one to the Spriits of other worlds.

The only way you can Hoodoo as an adult, is if you ever Hoodooed as a child. If you ever saw ghosts, spirits, faeries, or had imaginary friends, than you were chosen by the Fae to walk the Hedge, and you can gain your natural born gift backl. Learn about the Fae. Learn everything you can.

The most accurate book you could read, is Faeries by Brian Froud, and Passport to Magornia by Jacques Vallee.

But remember: respect them, trust them, fear them, for to harness the power of the Fae in your magic, is to unleash the chaotic furry of a hurricane on the heads of all.

Fae Magic is dangerous magic, not to be taken lightly. you misuse Fae Magic, you disrespect the Fae, you don’t get a second chance, you die.

When is comes to Faeries...Tread carefully or don’t tread at all.

Learn to read cards (not Tarot, we Gypsies don’t use Tarot, that’s just a Hollywood myth. Tarot is used by the Romani.

Gypsies and Romy are not the same. We Gypsies hate being called Roma, every bit as much as the Romi hate being called Gypsies.)

Learn how to use color magic, not just candles, but everything: ribbons, poppets, the clothes you wear, the place you live in, everything.

Learn divination: pendulum, cards, throwing shells/stones/crystals/bones, spirit boards, crystals.

Learn the plants which grow near you. Learn to dry them, use them, and know what they do.

Learn to pray. Learn to bless. Learn to wash and cleanse (spirit baths).

Remove all impurities from your life: meat, strong drink, smoking, drugs, infidelity, fornication, adultery, sex if not married, if married sex only with your partner – forever, even after they die.

Gypsy Magic and Hoodoo is not a quick and easy path, you can’t learn all you need to know in a year and a day…the only way to learn it is to live it, commit yourself to it. You look to this and expect to find a religion you can join, but there is no religion. It is not a religion, it is a way of life.
