Just thought I’d drop in and give you a little something something….
A concept that I don’t people are truly aware of or that they fear… is rootwork’s relation to the dead realm. Workers work with the dead realm. You may not want to believe it, but that doesn’t change anything. This is why rootworkers are called 2 headed doctors.
There is a realm that we live in. This is what we can experience with our regular, mundane senses. There is another realm that houses the people who have lived before and after us. This is where we came from and where we will go when we die. Rootworkers manipulate energies in this realm, which extends to the other realm. Don’t get it twisted, Preachers do this too. This is why it is important to keep an ancestor altar. The ancestors are in the other realm watching us, looking out for us and helping us. The spirit guides are in that realm. And other forces are there as well. And it’s not like we can’t monitor the other realm. We can, but (a) you have to acknowledge that it exists and (b) be willing to learn.
When an animal sacrifice is given, the purpose is 2-fold. The main purpose is to send an intention/message with the animal from this realm to the other and the second is to provide sustenance for the body that we have in this realm. So if you sacrifice an animal, it is important to eat some of it. It satisfies the dual nature of the activity.
I’m not dropping the secrets. I recognize that discretion is important for the work. Discretion is good for daily mundane life. I get that people have the ability to mentally influence things they see you doing. That’s why haters are dangerous. The evil eye is real. That’s why it’s important to keep a lot of stuff… even mundane stuff… private. And it’s important to wash that stuff off you on the regular. Yeah it’s popular now to claim not to care about hatters; but that is foolish.
The background to the whys and hows roots work is not a secret. You already know. You just think you don’t.
Catholics pray rosaries. Are you aware what a rosary is? It is a prayer beseeching Mary, the mother of Jesus to ask him to hook you up. Is Mary here amongst us in a physical sense? No. Is Jesus? No, he hasn’t come back yet. So these individuals are in the “other” realm. You do root and don’t realize it.
Oh! You aren’t Catholic? You think Catholics are a bunch of idolaters? Ok… You are a Protestant… Ok. You pray don’t you? You close your eyes, fall to your knees and ask an entity that you cannot see with your human eyes for assistance…. How is that different?
Candles, baths, alters, etc are found in all the faiths… and you do them. So stop.
