We can’t talk about magic and its powerful, magical tools without talking about mojo bags. Today I would like to show you all the amazing types of mojo bags and how to use them for many different goals. You will be astonished by how easy, but effective these mojo bags really can be.
Let’s dive into the incredible world of how these precious little helpers able to shape the life we’ve always wanted.
What are mojo bags?
Mojo bags (also called witches’ bag) are similar to a small tea bag but made from leather, suede or fabric with laces. They are usually decorated with a motif of Wicca magic symbols. The mojo bag is tied with a rope, can be hung on the neck, worn around the waist or can be stored in your pocket.
Most bags are usually worn during holidays, ceremonies and rituals, but individual witch bags can be worn at any time. Such bags can be used to improve health, protect oneself, attract money, love or improve magical skills.
These are magic bags or mojo bags or gri-gris envelopes. The composition of the ingredients with which these bags are filled depends on their use. What fills it must have a connection with natural energies.
The bag is filled, consecrated and strengthened with the help of elements such as water, earth, fire and/or air. Then you can use any ritual and spell of your choice.
Typical ingredients for seasonal bags can include:
- Spring: Fresh herbs, flowers, leaves.
- Summer: Sand, algae, flowers and summer fruits.
- Autumn/Fall: Wheat or barley grains, fallen leaves, plant seeds, dried berries, branches, moss, mushrooms.
- Winter: Earth, ivy, berries.
- All seasons: Animal bones, feathers, stones and/or crystals. The magic bag of a witch can be done for a specific person, for a specific purpose such as protecting health or for giving courage. This person can carry the bag all the time or until they get what it was made for. For such bags, you can add hair, nails or parts of this person’s clothes.
All these purposes are harmless, as to how it can negatively affect another person. But keep in mind that some bags however, if not manufactured correctly or with good intentions can be as dangerous as voodoo dolls in which their intention is to influence the wishes or thoughts of another human being.
As a result of these actions, a negative result may occur towards ourselves and/or others. That is why our desires, intentions and thoughts must always be positive and full of love and peace at all times.
How to create a mojo bag?
You will be working with energies and therefore working with magic and before carrying out any preparations, you must take into account the moons. For example, the bag should be made on a full moon except in some cases, for specific purposes.
It usually takes about 3 to 5 days to create, bless and load a bag. Also remember that it is a sacred moment in which you must carry out the entire process in a concentrated and calm way, illuminating the elements with a honey candle of white or pink color. The thread to sew your mojo bag should be cotton.
Once the mixture (all the ingredients) are prepared they should be placed inside a leather, silk or cotton bag and you will tie it with a cotton rope as well. You will pass your bag through the smoke of myrrh incense to clean and load it.
It is also recommended to carry a bag with you every day. You can wear it around the neck, in the pocket, in the bag, inside your underwear or tied to your belt. Regardless of how you carry it, remember that the important thing is that you should always carry it with you at all times.
While you sleep put your bag in a safe place where no one else can access it. If someone touches it without your permission, all you have to do is cleanse it and recharge it by rubbing a small amount of angelica root oil on the outside of the bag and passing it through the smoke of some incense.
How to make a mojo bag for protection?
If you want to protect yourself from bad energy, you must create a bag with the following ingredients.
A black bag (it can be velvet), a hematite stone, a quartz crystal, an onyx and a tiger’s eye, a miniature skull, a root of angelica and a broken chain. Ideally, each person should make their own mojo bag, but if this is not the case, you can find them in specialized esoteric stores.
If you want to attract love and passion
Add rose petals, a tiny wax heart that is red in color, a link from a chain, (the link from a chain symbolizes the intention to tie or link a specific situation to you) and a quartz crystal or rose quartz.
To attract passion, a few drops of rose essential oil, a mugwort root, a piece of red coral, a lily root, and write the name of the person you want to attract to your life on a small parchment. Do not worry about the name, if there is no one in your life at the moment. You’ll need to anoint the bag once a week on Friday night with three drops of rose oil, and then run it through the smoke of patchouli incense.
If you want to attract money or increase luck in the game
Add coins or some banknotes, bay leaves, a sprig of rosemary, a pinch of cinnamon and a four-leaf clover, if you are lucky enough to find one in a garden. Put everything in a green bag to attract money and luck in the game.
If you want to get the house of your dreams or the job you want
Rub a magnet and a chain on the door of a place you like. Add some stone or gravel from the compound, a picture of the place and a key. The magnet and a pyrite stone will be used to strengthen the bond of the attraction. Includes a root of Saint John for an extra boost.
