Mojo Bag


With my recent delving into the folk magic practice of Hoodoo, it is inevitable to come across mojo bags. If you watch the show "Supernatural", you'll probably recognize these. They got a lot of it down, except that mojo bags aren't as suited to hexes as they are to other uses.

对于我最近钻研的Hoodoo这种民间巫术实践来说,mojo bag是无法被忽略的。如果你观察以超自然为主题的展览时,你可能会发现它们。他们会挂上很多很多个类似的东西,除非那个袋子对巫师来说并不是像其他的方法那样适合。

A mojo bag is a flannel bag (traditionally red, but color correspondences can also be adhered to) filled with herbs and other magical objects that together have a magical effect. These can be used for almost any purpose. When one creates a mojo bag, one wears it close their skin. And the bag is carried around when its magic is needed.
一个Mojo袋是一个法兰绒制的袋子(传统中是红色,但根据(工作的性质与)颜色的对应关系也可以加以调整),里面装满了草药或是其他与巫术相关的物品,这些东西共同产生了了巫术上的效果。Mojo袋几乎可以被用来做任何事情。但一个人制作出一个mojo袋后,那个人需要把那个袋子贴身携带。并且在需要它的效力时贴身佩戴。



If the bag is to be used to cast a spell on somebody, a taglock of the person is placed into the it.
如果这个袋子是用来向某个人施法的,需要将那个人的象征物放入袋中。

On the making of a mojo bag, it must have at least three items. The most common is herbs, but also stones, sigils/seals (these may be those of spirits or ones you create. Note that the seals found in the Black Pullet are also frequently employed), and petition papers (addressed to the spirit who will be assisting in the work). All in all, have at least three items at nine at the most.
在制作mojo袋的时候,至少需要三样道具。最常见的是草药,也可以是骨头,符咒/印章(对于某些灵或者你创造出的灵体。注意《黑母鸡之书》里的印章常常会在这里派上用场),以及请愿书(写给某个提供援助的灵)。总之,最少三样最多九样。

If you do plan on employing spirits, make sure you give them their own offerings and invoke them properly.
如果你准备利用灵体,确定你向它们提供了专门的供奉,并且妥当的向它们予以祈请。

In the ritual of making a mojo bag, have all your herbs etc. with you as well as the bag.
Light a candle and some incense. The colors and scent should correspond to the working.
在制作mojo袋的仪式里,你需要带上你的草药以及袋子等所有你需要的东西。点起蜡烛以及一些香。(蜡烛的)颜色与(香的)味道要与工作的性质相对应。

Take up each ingredient and talk to the bag as you work. Yes, like it's a really person. Compliment it and tell it exactly why each herb is added. You may vibrate the name of the spirit you are working with, to make sure that spirit's energy is included in the work. Also, you can recite psalms after all the herbs etc. are put in. Each psalm has its own use in magic, which you can find in any good book on hoodoo but also online. Remember: Google, C'est Ton Amie!
Seal it up good, with a rubber band or sew it shut. Next, pass it through incense smoke and sprinkle it with salt water. Then pass it over the candle's flame.
在制作时,拿好每一样材料,并与袋子沟通。是的,就像它是一个真正的人那样。赞美袋子,并且准确的告诉它每一样草药是为了什么(目的)而加入进去。你也可以念诵你与之一起工作的灵的名字,以确定灵的能量也参与到制作中。同样,你也可以在所有的草药都放进去之后背诵《诗篇》。诗篇的每一节在魔法里都有着自己的作用,这个你可以在任何Hoodoo相关且较好的书里找到,网上也有。

On to breathing life into your mojo bag. You can begin with recitation from genesis about God breathing life into Adam, but this is not necessary.
Hold the bag in your left hand and call out to it to wake up three times. If you gave it a special name, call it by that one. If it has no other name, call it "Toby". Tell toby it's time to get up and do some work for you. Pat it thrice, nudging it awake.
Fill your lungs with air and blow with pursed lips on it three times.
Finally welcome him to life!
在你向你的mojo袋吹入生命时,你可以背诵创世纪里神将生命吹入亚当的那部分内容,但这并不是必要的。把袋子抓在你左手里,并且呼唤它三次好唤醒它。如果你给了它一个特别的名字,就用那个特别的名字叫它。如果它还没有其他的名字,就叫它“Toby”。告诉toby是它醒来并为你工作的时候了。轻拍它三次好催它醒过来。把你的肺吸满空气,然后用撅起的嘴唇向它吹气三次。最后欢迎他活了过来。

Dress Toby in a special oil at least once a week (the usual hoodoo oils you can get online). This keeps him alive. It's like you're feeding him.
每周至少要给Toby涂一次油(常用的Hoodoo油你可以在网上购买)。这可以维持他的生命。就像是你向他提供食物。

When it's time to use him, tell him exactly what you want him to do and carry him around you in secret, don't let anyone see or touch it!
当使你用他的时候,准确的告诉他你想要他做什么,并且秘密的把他带在你的身上,不要让别人看见或者触摸!

When you're done with Toby, tell him he's done well and take him apart. Leave the herbs etc. at a crossroads to disperse their mojo.
在你使用完毕之后,告诉他他做得很好,并把他拆开。把草药之类的东西丢在十字路口好让他们的mojo散去。
