Here at Inexplicable Things, we are often asked what the best way is to keep prosperity coming your way, without having to constantly burn money-drawing candles.
Two words: Money Lamp
When you want to bring money and prosperity in, but you really cannot afford to constantly be lighting money-drawing candles, a money lamp is a great way to incorporate these energies into your daily routine. And to be clear, the energies should not be about bringing more in – that can borderline on greed. Rather focus on being thankful! Be grateful! Both for the things you already have, as well as those things yet to come.
Here is my swamp conjure take on a prosperity lamp.
Start with a Hurricane lamp – you know, the old school kind with the large glass base that held the oil. You can find them either online, thrift stores, or if you live in the South like we do, Walmart carries them!
Gather up things that represent money and prosperity to you. I like to use things that actually are money – like a few coins, some paper money, even joss paper or bank Hell Notes. Add these to the base.
Next I add some natural curios – like crystals and stones that will help to amplify the power of the lamp. I usually incorporate quartz, maybe some pyrite, a lode stone would also work nicely.
Don’t forget to add money-drawing herbs. I usually will cinnamon sticks and bay leaves to mine. Allspice berries, mint, alfalfa, agrimony, and other herbs such as these.
Next, add fun curios for things you want to bring in. I am not a gambler, but taking risks is a part of our business, so I added a tiny green die I had. If you enjoy gambling, add things like dice, a playing card, perhaps, or even an unscratched lottery ticket. Add things like cowrie shells, or things from magickal and tribal traditions that were often used as currency.
I also use a bit of red pepper – I like to keep things spicy and moving along. Not alot, but a touch works nicely.
And then add those things that are goals: a blank key from the hardware store for a new car or even a new home; a photo of a vacation spot; a job announcement for something you are applying for. Get creative! * blank keys are important . . . do not get a key that is already ‘keyed’ for something that you don’t know where it leads! *
Add anything you feel says ‘prosperity‘ to you. And remember, prosperity isn’t always money. It can be happy home, healthy family members, charitable donations, etc. Add a petition or prayer if you wish.
Finish up by adding any money-drawing or success oils or powders that you normally like to use on candles. I usually add a few drops of a Road Opener, just to keep those roads open, and a few drops of a Protection oil – you work your ass off making that money, you might as well throw down some protection for that money, right?! Yeah you right, baby!
Light her up – make her shine. Just 10 minutes a day is all you need. You can do it before work, mid-day, or even right before bed. In fact, I know some that will light it for about 15 minutes before bed, and make a meditation.
Remember, the key is focusing on thanks, not asking for more.
You can see a short little video of how I make mine at inexplicablethings.org – under the Mama’s Tips & Tricks link!
I wrote a blog about 2 years ago, that offered a good variety of suggestions for reading up on conjure. I recently went back over that list, made some tweaks and edits, adding a few titles here and there.
Many of these books are also found on the suggested reading lists of other practitioners – such as Moma Sarah (Conjured Cardea), Matthew Venus, and several others, have recommended many of these.
Please remember – to each their own. I know that more than one of the authors listed here are surrounded in controversy – be your own judge. Reading is knowledge and knowledge is power – so, by all means, do not make this list or their words, be your gospel – but learn what you can, apply what you can, and make up your own mind!
This is NOT all inclusive, but will give a very well-rounded picture! Also, this list is for conjure related – not my list for witchcraft-specific. I have thousands of books that I have read over the years – and can offer suggestions for those, as well.

Let’s face it – most of us have been hurt in some form or fashion by someone we really cared about.
That’s life – it happens to the best of us. But occasionally, we are unfortunate enough to care about a drama queen (or king). I’m not talking typical drama either – I mean the kind that will rip your heart out because you wound up caring for them and they finally tired of playing with you and tossed you aside like a worn out teddy bear. The kind of person that dawns a perfect window dressing to hide the counterfeit that they really are.
Oh, these pretentious, two-faced bastards will act soft and innocent around you – but get them in a crowd where they are the center of attention – and honey, you would swear they could win an Oscar for their performance.
Yeah you right, Chere – you got somebody in mind, don’t ya?
So what do you do when they really need a taste of their own medicine? When you want, no need, to show their little horde of unsuspecting minions who they really are?
I can tell you what a Swamp Witch does – she turns ’em into Roadkill!
Yes, darlin’ – Roadkill! That stinking, rotting mess that we see on the side of the road!
This Swamp Witch don’t mess around! I will use what the swamp and the bayou provide to get the job done! Any roadkill will do. It’s nasty work – but the benefits you reap afterward are more than worth it!
I will baptize the roadkill as your specified target – and then wrap it in brightly colored yarns and ribbons and pretty things! You know… to make the target feel like we are buying into their sham.
Some energy work, a little altar and candle magick are done, as well as a few other things to complete the process.
Petitions are written to the spirits, offerings are made.
The bright colored bundle is placed on a silver platter and paraded around – treated like the royalty they THINK they are.
It’s a party, boys and girls!
But guess what?
That beautiful bright colored bundle of stink is about to get what it has coming to them –
I set that baby on fire! Oh yeah – we talkin’ bonfire!
As it is consumed by flames – all those brightly colored fragile ribbons and yarns begin to melt away – the pseudo identity falling to the wayside leaving behind their true ‘colors’.
Just wait… the best is yet to come.
If you are patient, and observant, you will get to see their entourage of minions leave them… very reminiscent of rats abandoning a sinking ship!
Why would they want to hang around a big piece of rotting, festering chaos? They usually don’t want to have much to do with the target after something like this. It creates havoc and chaos in the target’s life. Everything they touch stinks to high heaven! By the time the conjure wears off – they are usually left all alone. With little to no successes, no friends, a shell of their former know-it-all Queen (or King) Bee selves.
This is actually a very effective, and generally pretty long-lasting bayou conjure that I am becoming known for! So, reach out to me if you are still thinking of that person you were earlier. Yeah, Chere, I could see those wheels a-turnin’!
As I’ve said before – I don’t mess around!
I don’t do nice! And I don’t do passive aggressive!
You come to me with your problem and I’ll fix you right up.
At the very least – I will make you feel better and put a satisfied smile on your face!
I have a lot of experience working swamp conjures. I have seen the results with my own eyes. I use a great deal of energy for my workings and tricks – but I always give proper abundance of thanks to the Bayou and the spirits!

February 14 –
Conjures up images of baby cupids in diapers, arrows with heart-shaped tips, and little hearts floating over couples’ heads.
But what about those of us that are Anti-Valentine’s Day?
Valentine’s Day isn’t all about love… or a diaper-clad baby shooting arrows at people… it’s also about those that can’t get rid of someone, that person that just refuses to let you go… and this day has some historical disasters.
Every year, around this time, I do a special Anti-Valentine’s Day Unbinding Ritual.
Specifically designed for those that really need to get someone the hell outta their life, and unbind someone from them. Maybe you have a negative influence from someone that just won’t let you move on. Or even a stalker! Ex-lover from your past that holds a torch for you that is causing problems.
Miss Sha’s own special way to rid herself of a nuisance. Severance Package is, at it’s basic, a severe Unbinding of Two Hearts. Specifically designed for those that really need to get someone the hell outta their life, unbind someone from you. Maybe you have a negative influence from someone that just won’t let you move on. Or even a stalker! Ex-lover from your past that holds a torch for you that is causing problems.
It’s fairly powerful work – she has a specific spot in a cemetery where she works. Two Hearts (yes, real animal hearts) are baptized with the appropriate oils and then bound together. A Kukri style machete – that has been rumored to have taken a life – is used to severe the connection between the two hearts – VIOLENTLY. A bit more conjure work is done and then the two pieces are disposed of after a certain specified number of days, at opposite ends of the bayou. By then, the connection is properly withered and dying – the disposal helps put the final nail in the coffin of this relationship.
Clients will be provided with photos and proof that the work being done is for their particular situation.
Perfectly designed to cut the ties that bind between two people.
I am only able to perform a handful of these services – due to the amount of energy required, so it is first come, first serve.
