MONEY RITUAL, MONEY MEDICINES, AND WHAT HAPPENS

There is a saying that goes ‘money is the root evil,’ and it may be so, but many can not deny the fact that money brings joy and pleasure. Someone corrected me one day and said ‘The love of money is the root of all evil,’ and of course I think this is the truth (read this post). There are things that many people will do for money and of course with money, often times fame and power comes. The thing is, the search for money (especially for those who were not born into it) can be a very rough road and there are times when people want to take shortcuts to get to the top or to have more than or to acquire the power that they seek and desire.

Spirituality will come in very handy for those seeking material wealth or a quick leap to the top of the money tree. This is where money rituals becomes important, but many people who go into this type of practice or covenant often times do not understand or realize the repercussions that comes with it…

There is a difference between money ritual and money medicine. Money ritual is a ritual done to bring about money or to change a persons situation or circumstance where in which they will be more wealthy and prosperous. The word ritual here means ceremony, a spiritual ceremony that is done where the priest or priestess do whatever they do within the ceremony to change the life of that person. I once knew a woman who was very very wealthy, yet she was never happy. I know this sounds cliche, but then again everything comes with a balance. This is not to say that wealth brings unhappiness, but the way in which a person gets their wealth, is what determines how they live their lives and also their physical and emotional well being (this would make for a great intellectual spiritual topic).

When I met this woman, let’s call her Roxanne. She was a woman already in her fifties and had six children. The source of her wealth? I had no idea, this was never disclosed to me. It may have been real estate, but I’m not sure. I was intrigued at the fact that this woman wanted for nothing. She had houses and cars, cuban cigars (lol), whatever it was, she had it or could afford it. Yet, she quarreled almost everyday about something or the other and most of the time the arguments had to do with either her ex husband or her current boyfriend, and most especially, the problems she was having with her children.

All 6 children had a problem. And the problems that they had were a mother’s or a parent’s worst nightmare. Let me list them…

The first child, which at the time when I knew her, was in her 30’s, was said to be a prostitute. Now this is not the prostitute that stands on the corner of the street, this is the one that will sleep with anyone who said Hi to her. It became almost like a sickness. She was even accused quite often of seducing her mother’s boyfriends, which created a very horrible relationship between her and her mother. They lived like cats and dogs.

The second child was a boy. He was gay and he, too, was extremely promiscuous; and he also went after the mother’s boyfriends. However, she never tackled his subject or even spoke about it. This was something whispered among the family. It seemed, however, that she always wanted to make him especially, very happy, almost as if she were carrying a guilt for whatever reason. And so, she would invite random men to the house to live with her and then put them to stay in this son’s room. She was highly criticized within the family for this as the boy was very promiscuous.

The third child was a thief. Very talented boy in all areas of his life and although the mother gave him everything he wanted, it seemed that he could not help stealing. The kind of thief he was was hardcore. He robbed houses, he did carjacking, he also sold and stole (in and out of prison) drugs… But all these things he did not have to, because she provided all her children with anything they asked for.

The other three children (1 girl and 2 boys) all became drug addicts. The drugs were heroin and crystal meth. These were children who had the best education (she spen money pon har pitni dem), and she was devastated when she had to battle drugs with her children by constantly having to put them in drug rehab.

When it came to men, she had no problem getting them (money is very attractive), but they all ended up using her and the relationship while with them was always tumultuous. She cried everyday, or cussed everyday, and even if she smiled or laughed, it was just for a moment. Happiness was never a companion to her.  One day she told a story to myself and my friend Mother Myrie. This was after I had given her consultation on some problems she was having in her personal life. She told us about a ritual she had done many years ago. The ritual involved her being buried and resurrected. While I can not go into details of what she told me, I knew as she described it, that this was a money ritual, and so I asked her if she knew what the ritual was for when it was being done?

She feigned ignorance, and told me that she had just gone to the obeah man and asked him to help her make her life better, and this was what he did. She said after the ritual was done, her life flourished. Mother Myrie, who had been quiet during the conversation, suddenly made an accusatory outburst.

“Yuh tek care ah yuh self an’ lef yuh pitni dem outta door.”

Meaning she left her children out in the cold, or she did not ask what the repercussions would be when she did the ritual. I remember her crying that day. She never answered Mother Myrie, except for saying she didn’t know. But as spiritualists, Mother Myrie and I looked at each other, silently acknowledging the foolishness of people.

This story is one of many and to be honest, this story is mild compared to others who have done rituals for money and have lost family members or some parts of themselves (for example, their anatomy – one man went impotent). The possibility of becoming a millionaire, billionaire, trillionaire, is very real when it comes to spirituality. Yet we ought to remember that everyone has their own destiny written in a contract before coming to this earth plane to live, and if it is not destined for a person to be wealthy and powerful, they can become wealthy and powerful if they find the right spiritualist to perform the ritual to make them so. But there are dire consequences to be paid, and often times, they may not even know (the spiritualist certainly will not tell them, and sometimes the spiritualists himself may not even know the consequence, other that there are consequences attached).

All over the world, on television, or in the news, international, or otherwise, there are stories of people or families who are wealthy, powerful, famous, loved or criticized. There may be situations, just like this, (when spirituality is spoken of, as in witchcraft or juju, black people are highlighted in the minds of many, but this is not entirely so) where in which we see a woman, famous or otherwise, who once lived an ordinary life like you and I, and then all of a sudden she marries a wealthy man, and her life begins to rise. And after years or months or marriage, she branches off without him, becoming on top of him while he dwindles down to nothing. This could be called a swap or swapping of destinies where in which the money ritual that she did in secrecy, worked in the way of her meeting wealth (the man) and taking his destiny, leaving him to be a shell of a person.

There are spiritual energies that the spiritualist can work with, pertaining what is demanded by the energy or deity, and given to them. They can allow, for example the woman above, to steal or suck the glory of any and all men, regardless of family, or friend, or lover, who comes around. This is not only a woman thing, it can also be reversed where a man does this to a woman. In Africa, we would say switching the person’s star. This may sound very weird to some of you, but this is very real in the world of spirituality, and it can be as simple as one sex act between a woman and a man, where either he pulls from her or she pulls from him and bam, the deed is done.

Or as simple as someone offering you a seat, and you accept. A swap has occurred unbeknownst to you.

I’m sure many of you reading this have witnessed situations where you have seen people striving in life, perhaps met up with someone or into a family, and all of a sudden that person becomes nothing, while those who entered his life, rises above him. Money rituals are practiced all over the world (white, black, and more), and many people who have acquired sudden wealth, thrones, power, or titles, may be apart of this practice. Often times before our eyes (media) and we just don’t know…

However, there are real repercussions to these practices because the Universe witnesses all.

Now, on the topic of money medicine. I use the term “medicine” because I practice African spirituality, and this is what we call anything that is to assist anyone spiritually, but many of us in the diaspora may just call it spiritual work. The difference between money ritual and money medicine is that the first will bring money like pouring rain, and it is extreme and although it works, the consequences are dire. But money medicines are preparations done to assist the person by unblocking their way and allowing their natural goodness, which may be already destined for them, to come. I will give you a short example.

A gentleman told me that he had gone to Nigeria, on one of his trips, and had a divination with a Babalawo where it came up that his way was blocked and things were tough for him financially. The oracle instructed the Babalawo to make medicines for this gentleman. The man was told to buy two chickens and bring them. He did so. The chickens were sacrificed to whatever deity, and then the animal was cleaned and boiled. It was put to dry on top of a zinc roof. Other things were then done, (but I won’t go too deep), and the animal was now prepared like a meal with the Babalawo’s chanting. The gentleman was now made to eat the chicken (these foods are prepared in special pots, etc.) except the bones. The bones were placed aside and those were then made into medicine to be used. The gentleman told me that when he returned, money became his best friend. He said that year he flourished that he was even able to buy several buildings. But this lasted for perhaps two years, and it dwindled down when the medicine he used finished.

Now the difference with this is that the oracle was the one that pointed out the problem the gentleman was going through and also gave the solution. There also can be times when a person sits before a Babalawo and requests some type of medicine to assist them financially or in their business, and regardless of what is asked, the priest has to consult the oracle, and the oracle will determine the type of medicine that is conducive to that person’s spirit.

Money medicine or doing preparations to assist yourself financially, is fine. In spirituality, persons can use candles or even the Bible if you’re knowledgeable, invoke certain deities of nature, or whatever. There are many things that can benefit us in life, but then there are the extreme as I told you above that can create havoc, sadness, sickness, confusion, or even death.

It’s a matter of choice.

But in all things, we must be wise.

Long time OM, I hope all is well! I’m reading this post for the second time, and I have questions. If the woman who performed the money ritual had her children participate in the ritual with her, would the outcome have been the same? Or was the outcome the dire consequences of having a money ritual done? Also, let’s say it is already one’s destiny to become wealthy, powerful, etc, and one partakes in a money ritual to expedite what is already destined to be, could that person have a happily ever after or are dire consequences inevitable when partaking in a money ritual? Would you say a money ritual is a spiritual no no?

I read your “Money and the World” post,and I got my answer in regards to money rituals being a spiritual no no. However, I still wonder if the outcome would have been different if her children participated in the ritual with her, or would the dire consequences have just manifested in different ways?

Omg!!! I am still in shock of the depths and length people go for fame and the simple things which can swap one destiny.
Sometimes I wonder how can someone stay present in their life. After all we are not perfect so at times we will slip into a tramp…. I really appreciate the lesson

Hello (like Adelle), typing dey pan mi. Sa-Fo wad up boo? Teach and Prosperity unno haffi gwan betta bout di place man. No sah! I wasnt going to share this but I have learnt from others so I want to share my two likkle words (hahahaha).

I sahred before that I had two positions at the College but those positions pays you quarterly and in the mean time, I needed to have another job to sustain me. Anyways, again I told you I was dating a guy who I was more than 10 years older. I would dress like it was nobody’s business to go to school, some days I looked like I was about to open Wall Street. Anyways, with popularity comes a lot of things. People will like you and others will hate you for no reason. The Jamaican-Canadian came in the office and as luck would have it she heard when I was called for a job. She got angry and ask me, why was I called and not her. I knew I would never trust her. She was the same person that brought me food which I threw away. Somehow she has swapped our destines, the office has mistaken her for me. She didnt get the job and I could not keep the job. I was not fired but I was just getting shifts. Obara always tells us to be present in our lives. I knew I could not trust her. However, Prosperity’s Glory Thief hit on something.

When we share, we bless each other with our stories and we all learn.

Blessings to everyone, Teach if you good one more time. You are always on point. So many lessons. I had several awww moments reading this. This is a true testimony. I was going through an extremely difficult time financially and I just cried day in day out like mi modda wudda sey. I looked around and everyone was seemingly doing well/better than me (all the Jamaicans in Canada). I was getting calls out of Jamaica that my daughter needed this, or my daughter needed that. Months would go by before I would be able to send even a dollar for my children. Long story short, I remember one day I was sitting in my office and this Canadian (Jamaican parents) and I got a call for a job. She blurted out ‘how they called you and not me?’ I was like excuse the F outta me…Anyways, like a big fool, she said since she drives and I dont she will take me there to drop off my papers and just follow up on her application. We went in together and somehow this post has made me see that this bitch (ax pawden as Nunu wudda sey) somehow changed our destinies. Work flow stopped, money stopped, everything was blocked up.

I was just crying and crying and crying and crying. Then one day I said yes Lord yu carry thru this mek mi si how this will play out. I then decided that I wouldnt cry anymore. I cried also because I felt like I was putting tears on my daughter’s father. As I stopped crying, braps I was contacted by the same work place and asked if I was interested in picking up two shifts (Saturday and Sunday), I went it. Monday, I learnt about the shift that I went in for today. So nine months of not getting a single shift, I got 4 straight day of work. As I typed 9 months it is significant as its the full term for a pregnancy.

Thanks Teach for this post, I have learnt so much.

Bingo Obara- I met a white woman once and she told me she had a successful business with a partner who was a wiccan (witch) whatever they call themselves. ANyways she said the partner proclaimed she used magic to destroy her husband and after she had an argument with her she also destroyed her and nothing has been right with her since especially financially- so people should not be fooled by people colour.

Growing up in a business family and around alot of well known business people I would hear whispers about certain people using magic to stop competitors with the aid of blocking forces but I was too young to understand. That’s why so many business men in Jamaica are involved in Lodge etc.

I have been to super wealthy Jamaicans (non african type) the type who dont mix with the black Jamaicans have shrines and various spritual set up in their homes and in the back of their business places. This is real and them so highty tighty and you would never know – trust me dont let people fool you that spiritual stuff only used by certain people they all do it.

Remember I text you about Kanye- I know something is wrong with him- he claimed he is under spiritual attack and I believe the Kardashian curse is upon him. All the men in the Kardashian family or circle end up spiraling down no matter how high they were- I wonder what that mother did hmmm

Good day Obara. Great post and so true. You are correct, in that most individuals with money are some of the most troubled people. I have learned that when you worked hard for your money, you tend to me happier than when you inherit it. But I have also learned as you stated in the post, the sacrifices people make to attain wealth, means that their offspring will suffer the consequences of their actions.

Interestingly enough, if you read up Pro.23:5 – ‘…..For riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle towards heaven’

Well what a coincidence that there is a silver box feature at the back of most major bank cards(debit or credit card)just above the signature strip – you’ll find an embedded hologram eagle in the silver box if you take a close up look.

Does that hint that money comes and goes or hits it’s upward and downward cycle from time to time and back again? because on the stock market, money is referred to currency or forex, just like water current or electric current all move in cycles. Does that mean money can appear in one generation and not the other? Whats your thoughts or insight ? Obara Meji

This piece of writing a happen. It bad like the stories of Molly, Peanut and David. It had me reading aloud. I can just imagine Mother Myrie face and the look you gave each other while Roxanne recounted her story. Some extrodinary things can happen in spirituality bwoy. Imagine being buried and resurrected. Then to find that though you florish those you hold dear to you wither away to nothing. It dread. It dread bad, she must regret what’s she had knowingly or unknowingly done and would trade it all to see her children be and do great things.

I’ve heard someone speak of a friend who she believed came around her to suck her dry through stealing her and her children’s glory. The glory tief lived in a very nice apartment but for some reason she would never leave her friends house who lived in a small cramped house with her 3 children and man. Things were very bad for the woman and her family and though the glory tief was better off she began to be a burden to the woman. So the woman one day decided to clean her children’s room thoroughly. Under the bed where her three children slept she found a shoe box full of money belonging to glory tief. She deduced that her friend was sucking any and every opportunity she had to become financially stable. I suppose this would be like what you explained.

“The way in which a person gets their wealth, is what determines how they live their lives and also their physical and emotional well being” We all should take this away from this piece of writing. It no easy pon the rich and unhappy. That’s why dem say don’t grudge people fi dem tings cause you don’t know how dem get it.

Another though provoking post, many thanks Obara Meji for the insight on the subject. Coming from the yoruba community, money is attributed to success. I’ve heard of horrific stories of people’s plight for money via(fraud, money ritual,Obeah). Even in the diaspora, I’ve heard of people plotting for their colleagues to get fired over higher post in the workplace to shops going out of business for selling african fabric in the same marketplace all in the name of monetary gain. In nigeria, you hear of all sort – sudden disappearance, sudden & premature deaths among family members or friends, loss of winning a business contracts, to someone going mentally ill. In church, you hear the Pastors lead evil  prayer directions simple because People want money in excess by fire by force. I’ve always thought that not everyone will be destined to have alot money but people will respond – ‘Na lie, who told you so. Jesus was rich!!!’

You got me at “burried and ressurected”. Now you tell me if a person with some thinking capabilities wouldn’t ask what are the risks? That ritual alone would set off flags for me. I does not seem clean. No sah. I like the money medicine method instead. Slow, steady and just enough.

Another beautifully written article from you mums! It kind of gets me a bit shook up as you don’t know who to trust. I figure the first to trust is God, them trust in yourelf, because you don’t know who will lead you astray. Always be aware of to your guides, ancestors, surroundings and dreams.

When you speak of the gypsies it makes me think of a movie called “Thinner” ( I think that’s the name). Where the white man ran a gypsy grandmother overy with the car and another gypsy woman put a curse on him, whilst he bEgan to wither away. He then found a way to reverse the curse by putting his blood in a pie and give someone to eat, I believe it was his wife (yuck). His daughter ended up eating it though. What a movie. Mi fraid ah dem ppl.

Morning. Funny you included them. Those women are such a mystery to me. I know it’s out of the norm but it would be really interesting to have your take about the women in this family Obara, as a blog post, and what you believe to be happening to the men that come in to their lives and never leave the same. I remember your insight on Chris brown.

Obara Meji, I am worried about effects on people that these rituals may have unbeknownst to them, and my question is how can they free themselves and regain their spirituality? is it by cutting relationship with them or adoption of a solution?
