Animals are helpful to us in life by providing us food, companionship, and other services. After the passing of an animal their body parts still have energy to help us spiritually. The gator teeth and paws that help us with protection and gambling work, the snake shed that helps us heal and grow, the chicken feet that help protect us and more will be covered in this class. However, these curios do need to be ritually awakened and programmed in order to know their function and afterwards they need to be fed and maintained just like the animal they came from when they were alive.
Edwin Hernandez learned and lived the art of Conjure from birth by working with Animal and Root Spirits, and the presence of Ancestors with his grandmother in Puerto Rico .As he grew in curiosity, he began to use the knowledge gained and expanding on it, learning spiritual philosophies from Buddhism, Hinduism, Satanism, and Khematic magic.
While learning a reverence for these spiritualities his main practice has always been comprised of Hoodoo, Conjure, Ophidian magic, and most recently Vodou.
His practical work involves the attitude of “doctor” by curing an energetic illness – an act that cannot be possible without the assistance and blessing of ancestral spirits and the Lwa
Tarot and Divination play a key role in this relationship.
Though learning from a young age, he now counts at least 20 years in serious pursuit of this path, and began his relationship with the Lwa about 4 years ago. He works closely with snakes both physical and spiritual. His students and clients call him Papa Crossroads due to his work mostly happening in the crossroads both physically and spiritually.
