Being initiated into Obeah will not make you instantly able to cast Obeah spells. This still takes practice and patience. It will take years of practice, in fact. But it is the first step necessary to tap into the secret currents of Obeah. These are spiritual links and currents that we must harness to use the power of Obeah. This is why initiation is the first step and a prerequisite for practicing any form of Obeah.
It is best if I can initiate you into Obeah personally. I do travel frequently – if you live in Europe or in the Caribbean then it may be best to wait and schedule an appointment for me to initiate you into Obeah in person. But if this is not possible then an initiation into Obeah can be done at a distance. This is done astrally – in much the same fashion that people receive initiation into Western occult traditions like the Golden Dawn astrally. It is effective and I have personally initiated many people astrally into Obeah who are now practicing it successfully.
After initiation into Obeah I will guide you in the practice. You do not have to take any of the courses that I offer – these are completely optional. But you must also take charge of your spiritual destiny after initiation. This means using the resources that I give you to study and practice the rites and rituals. I have many free resources for Obeah available here on this website. With the Internet few things are actually private or secret anymore – books like the Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses, which were previously illegal and banned in Jamaica, are now available for anyone to download. It will be your responsibility to study and practice the rituals therein. I will always guide you and be your spiritual Papa, but you must also take charge of your own spiritual growth as well.
I do offer courses in Obeah to anyone who has become initiated. These are optional and are not required. Like I said – you can practice and learn Obeah by yourself after you are initiated. The initiation is the only requirement. The courses can be of great help and I can impart to you many secrets that cannot be found in any library or book. But at the same time you can discover many different secrets by yourself. This is what will define you in the long run as an Obeah man or Obeah woman.
Initiation into Obeah is not complicated but it does take focus – this is true if it is done in person or at a distance. No one will ever “fail” an Obeah initiation. We know before even starting if you have been accepted or not. You just have to follow the steps I give you along with the rituals we will do together. They are simple and you will not mess them up. The spirits will always guide you in doing them correctly. Faith is a must.
In many cases the spirits do reject people. Obeah is not for everyone and no one should feel offended if they are not accepted as a candidate. I have two brothers who were not accepted and I was. This is something beyond human control and is essentially in the hands of God. But this is not going to be a surprise or something that we find out after the initiation. This is something that we know by consulting the spirits before we even begin talking about initiation.
