Days of Cyprian – Day 8

Pray the opening of Genesis before lighting candles

This is a practice that I was led to by Spirit to do when lighting candles. When you are lighting candles, before you light it, pray over the candle the Genesis 1 v 1-4.

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

Then using your match or lighter, light the wick of the candles you are working with. Then continue with whatever prayers or works you were going to do.

Days of Cyprian – Day 7

Use Holy Water to bring make a place Holy

(What do you do with that holy water?)

    You take that holy water and you sprinkle it in all corners of the house.Sprinkle it around – that’s to keep your home holy.  Or, if you got a store,that’s to keep your store holy – keep you out of trouble and ‘cumulate – [also]make you ‘cumulate things around your home.  You see, that holy water is blestby de priests and things and then it’s blest by the Lord, you see.
Vol.2,p.1634 Informant in New Orleans

Another one from Hyatt, but also kind of an obvious thing. Use Holy Water. It should be easy to procure, especially if you are already Catholic, but you can also walk into some churches and they will have some available for the faithful.
Simply sprinkle holy water around your home or business to keep it holy. This holiness can achieve many results from protection, peace, bringing good luck, helping to resolve problems etc.

Days of Cyprian Day 6

Carry Psalm 65 in your wallet to protect and bring you money

I don’t remember where I found this, but it is something that I have had for a long time. Basically every time I get a new wallet, I do this again.

On a small sheet of paper, write down Psalm 65 by hand. You can use both sides, but you need it all fit on one sheet of paper. Fold it up neatly, and place it in your wallet. I recommend carrying in a pocket that doesn’t get disturbed much, that is you don’t take cards out of it very often, and you’re not always taking money in and out. Carrying this Psalm in your wallet with protect your money and draw money to you. 

1Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:
7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

Days of Cyprian – Day 5

Use the 23rd Psalm to influence your boss

You know de boss’s name.  All right. Call ‘im soon in de mawin’ befo’ de sun’s risin’.  Understan’ me, don’t have anything else on yore mind.  Have yo’ a secrut prayer to God befo’ de sun rise.  Git on yore knees an’ pray David’s prayer, “De Lord is mah shepherd an’ ah shall not want.” 

Ah’ll guarantee dat yo’ll go out an’ git it.  “De Lord is mah shepherd an’ ah shall not want.”   Yo’ know how to read de 23rd Psalms of David? 

    An’ in readin’ dat den [demonstrates].

    (Fold your hands up over your head.)

    Uh-huh.    Dat means, “My Lord, My God, has thou forsaken me?”     Call His (sic) name three times jest fo’ three mornin’s.  Handle ‘im jest like yo’ kin dis hat chere [my hat on  the tale – (The boss for the job?) Yes sir.

Vol.2,pp.1603-4

This working also comes from Hyatt and is from an informant named Dr. Stone from Waycross, GA.

For three consecutive mornings, rise before sunrise.
With your mind focused in prayer, clasp your hands together over your head and pray the 23rd Psalm.
Then call the name of the person who is the boss at work three times.
You will then be able to handle that boss, and they will comply with your wishes.

I have used this once and my boss gave me a raise shortly thereafter. If you know who is the boss and trying to get a job, you can use this, but you can also influence the boss at the job you already have to help things.

Days of Cyprian – Day 4

This is a practice that I recently read about although I had done it before.

There is a growing movement of people who are not necessarily aligned with the Catholic church, or any church per se, who are taking to praying the rosary for 9 days at a time. It is called the Way of the Rose.
It has an interesting back story and some books associated with it, and there are groups who gather to do it in person, or in this time of Covid et al, via video conferencing, and pray the Rosary together. You can google it (Just search Way of the Rose, you’ll find something) and you can learn more.

The rosary was something I learned about in college, although I had always found them interesting accessories. I had been wanting to collect them since I was a teenager, and in college, there happened to be a woman who was Catholic working on campus. I was wearing my rosary, and she gave me pamphlet explaining the traditional means of praying with it, the prayers associated with each section, and how during praying it, depending upon the part of the liturgical year, one would meditate upon different events and things in the bible, with most of it being about the birth, life, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. I found it interesting and later through my own study I learned that a popular bit of church art, the 13 stations of the cross, are often integrated with rosary practice, with people praying the rosary while moving from station to station at the same time in churches and chapels that have those stations depicted. This led me to praying the rosary periodically just because. Many times I felt a presence and a growing nearness to God but I didn’t really think anything of it other than, if you pray the rosary often you receive a plenary indulgence ie a get out of hell/purgatory for free card because of this devotion. Later I would learn that doing the rosary or having a mass for the dead was also a way to help free others from purgatory, and I would use it while doing work with the dead and ancestors. Then I came across the Way of the Rose, and the many testimonies of people who had prayed for a multitude of things, from getting a job to protection in very difficult situations to just finding a new couch which seemed to happen in response to their action of praying the rosary, once a day for nine days.

That is the working I offer to you. You can achieve anything. Just pray the Rosary once a day for nine days, and your prayers will be fulfilled.

Days of Cyprian – Day 3

Another from Hyatt’s collection.

If yo’ runnin’ a house fo’ runnin’ cards, or othah special work, an’ yo’ cain’t git much trade dere.  [She is speaking about her own professional work.  The running cards means telling fortunes; othah special work, any type of hoodooism.] 

  Yo’ git up an’ go to de drug sto’ an’ buy yo’ a bottle of Hawthorne Perfume.  Yo’ take an’ come back an’ take yo’ a little tin top.  Git ovah dat an’ repeat de Lord’s prayer an’ take yo’ a little tin top [top of a tin can] an’ burn de Hawthorne Perfume in de middle of de flo’ wit de sugah, an’ dat will draw peoples to yo’.  Dat’s whut ah did when ah wus ‘way from home [on professional business] – it would draw peoples to yo’ an’ yo’ could explain to ’em whut chew want explained.

Vol.2,p.1584

In clearer language, if you are running a business for doing readings (especially with cards) but also doing workings, hoodoo, etc.. take a bottle of Hoyt’s cologne (It says Hawthorne Perfume, but Hyatt didn’t always understand his interviews accents and this was one of those confusions, because he was also unfamiliar with some products sold at the time) and you need just a metal container. The informat says to get a tin container that probably once held food or something but in my experience any metal dish will work. Modern day canned food now has a plastic lining on it, which will burn and stink if you try to use it in this, unless you remove the plastic first, so you want something metal that isn’t plastic coated. Place that in the middle of your place of business, Put some sugar in it (she doesn’t say how much, so, do what feels right to you. Put some hoyt’s cologne on it, and light it on fire and and pray the Lord’s prayer over it, and that will attract clients to you. The informant indicates that she did this when she was away from home, but it also works in your home if your business is in the home.

I have done this a few times and besides it being very entertaining watching the alcohol burn, and it also causes some of the sugar to caramelize, it also smells good. I do have one recommendation. When it is done, and you can touch the metal item again, you should deploy the now worked caramelized sugar by sprinkling it around the front door of your place of business. An X mark or a five point (like the five dots on a six sided die) under your welcome mat works well for this too.

Days of Cyprian – Day 2

This working is something I found in the collection of Harry M Hyatt spells. I have had lots of success with this working.

Yo’ use holy watah, an’ say fo’ instance – if a person dat is come into

yore place lak dat an’ dey come with a bad heart towards yo’ or somethin’ of

de kind – or come talkin’ some kind of foolish talk or cross-talk whut chew

don’t wanta heah talk of – or make confusement or somethin’ of de kind –

well, yo’ use holy watah in dat like manner, yo’ understan’, so dat as

everyone

come in, dey’ll come wit a good spirit, yo’ see.

Yo’ll take holy watah. Now, yo’ll put three spoons of white sugah in

dere, if yo’ have mostly, say, fo’ de white people. Lak it’s fo’ de colored

people, yo’ll put three spoons of brown sugah. Now, yo’ll place dat in de

bottle of holy watah.

Now, yo’ll jis’ place dat up on a shelf or anywhere roun’ about into

yore place. Now, ever’body dat come in dere dey’ll speak nice an’ come wit a

good spirit yo’ see.

Somepin of de kind is confusement in de home or raisin’ Sam or speakin’

ugly words of somethin’ of de kin’. Yo’ jis’ take dat bottle down an’ jis’

drop a little bit on de flo’ – jis’ throw a little bit on de flo’.

Ever’thin’ is all ovah right dere.

(You use that same bottle of holy water for that – what you told me

about before?)

Yessuh.

[Algiers, LA; Informant #1583 – Nahnee the “Boss of Algiers”; Vol.2,p.1382

A clearer explanation of this is that you take a bottle of holy water and you add three spoonfuls of sugar to it. Place the bottle in there place where people will be gathering and it will ensure that everyone gathers in goodwill and happiness. If things start to get heated or someone becomes argumentative, open the bottle and spill out a bit and it will calm things down.

This WORKS. I can especially recommend it if you have hot headed and argumentative family coming to your home for the holidays, or if you are going to their home, or you’re all meeting someplace. It will cut down on the conflict and get everyone to just get along fine, and if things start to get too dramatic, just discretely pour some out and it will calm down right away. I used this for many years for expressly that purpose and it worked so well. This also makes a good sneaky trick for offices or just any time you know that tempers will be high. If it’s something you leave up constantly, you’ll want to check it to see if the water has gone bad (ie cloudy with mold and gack) and you will want to replace it. 

Days of St Cyprian

While I was engaging in my practice with Saint Cyprian tonight, the message I received was to share some of my directly Christian workings that I use, or have used and found effective. I should share 1 such working for every nine days. Since I am already one day behind, I will post two today to make up for it.

This was honest to goodness one of the first wildly successful workings I did when I was in my twenties and it is very simple.

If you have lost something, just pray the Lord’s prayer. Do it three times. Whatever is lost will be restored to you.

I had lost a ring that I loved. I don’t know how I lost it, it just wasn’t on my finger and I couldn’t find it anywhere. After a lot of stress and strain, I stopped and I just prayed and the only prayer I could think of was the Lord’s prayer. I repeated it three times, and I just felt this lightness and calm assurance come over me. About an hour later, I was walking to a meeting and in the middle of this footpath, with no one else around, there was my ring. This was not a frequently used footpath and it had easily been a week since the last time I had walked there, and I had my ring then.

On another occasion I had lost my wallet. I can only guess it had fallen out of my pocket when I was exiting a taxi. So, I remembered the ring, and I prayed. I didn’t find the wallet but when I returned home from this trip, I had an email from a man who had found my wallet on the street, picked it up, and I happened to have a business card with my email address in it. So, he emailed me, this man ended up mailing me the wallet, with all my cards, ID and everything untouched and intact.

I had a friend who would lose stuff constantly. Every time we hung out, he would lose stuff. We would search my car, my home, retrace our steps, nothing. Finally, I would stop and pray, and somehow, inexplicably his missing items would suddenly appear in this very obvious back door pocket on my passenger side. He never sat in the back seat, and there was no way, it could have fallen from his pocket and landed in the back door pocket. But every time, on multiple occasions, what was missing would be there, even if we searched it before, but once I prayed, it showed up.

So, that’s my story. If you’re missing something and it is lost, pray the Lord’s Prayer three times. You will find it.

Joyous Aphrodisia!

In the Attic calendar (commonly used by Athens) The Festival of Aphrodite was celebrated during the month called Hekatombaion, which scholars have identified as starting in Late July and going until Late August.

May the many blessings of Aphrodite Urania Pandemos (Heavenly and for All People) be upon you!
