What is Protection Work and Why It is so Important?

Protection in HoodooIf y'all are familiar with me, you know how much I talk about protection work. It is the basis of Hoodoo and Conjure Work. This is one of the first steps in this work and it is IMPERATIVE. You see how I emphasized that word "IMPERATIVE?" I did that to grab your attention and let you know just how important it is. Did it work? I hope so!

Hoodoo originated and was created by slaves enslaved in America as a result of the Transatlantic slave trade. Many people get into this practice for the wrong reasons- to dominate someone, try to make someone love them, and for glitter and gold, but this practice was used for SURVIVAL. I emphasized that word as well because I want to stress the importance of that also.

Although protection work may seem boring.... it is a part of the process that many people tend to skip. Protection is used to protect yourself and your family- mentally, physically, and most definitely spiritually. When we talk of protection we talk about layers of protection. What do I mean by this?

Layers of protection are your multiple protection workings. Let's give an example... taking a spiritual bath of fiery wall of protection is one layer. Anointing with fiery wall of protection oil is a second layer. Cleansing your home with ammonia or fiery wall of protection floor wash is a 3rd layer. Putting railroad spikes outside of your home, this is another layer, a 4th layer; participating in a ritual or doing candle workings, this is a 5th layer. You get the picture? You can never have enough protection!

I do not want to seem like I am shoving this down your throat, well yes I am! That is how important it is. I have seen many instances where people have done protection and have seen negative people and  toxic relationships removed from their lives; they have been protected from detrimental situations, and the list goes on and on. Make sure this is something that you stay up on consistently. When I say consistently, I mean not just one time. Make it a ritual to do this type workings at least once per week or at least lay down protection once a month.
