Personal concerns are anything that carries the DNA of a person such as hair, nails, blood, urine, semen, sweat, clothing and anything else you might be able to get your hands on (although you might not want to get your hands on any of it). Personal concerns are used for a variety of reasons in hoodoo work. Unlike other forms of magic, they aren't just used as a sympathetic connection, their use is much more varied and direct.
We shouldn't allow any form of fear to consume us, instead we should take action to change or circumstances. You do not have to deal with lack and scarcity as long as you are willing to put in the physical and spiritual work. It is important to give back when we call increased finances to us because it makes us a conduit instead of a cup. A cup can only hold so much, but a conduit will always receive as much as it gives.
There are two main ways love can be worked with from a spiritual/magical perspective. One path of drawing love is what I call “good” and the other path is what I call “bad”. I’ll be using these two terms for clarity, but I want to make it clear that the philosophical understanding of those two polarities become “grey” in this context.
