Overcoming Obstacles: A Gris-Gris Bag

First, find an old skeleton key. You will take the skeleton key and go to seven different places and touch the door of each place with the key.

  1. A store
  2. A bank
  3. Supermarket
  4. Place of business
  5. Hospital
  6. Jail
  7. Cemetery gate

The key is then anointed with High John the Conqueror oil and placed in a red flannel or chamois bag with the following:

  • A small aventurine stone
  • A piece of John the Conqueror root
  • 3 bay laurel leaves
  • A pinch of five-finger grass (cinquefoil)
  • 2 lodestones

When finished with the bag, place it next to a statue of St. Anthony of Padua and light a white candle, asking that he always intercede on your behalf to remove obstacles that you encounter on your journey in life. Each day for thirteen days, light a new candle praying to St. Anthony will bless the gris-gris to work for you in removing obstacles. After all the candles have burnt themselves out, you can wear the charm bag next to your skin, under your clothing so that no one will see it.
