Traditional Mojo Bags originated in Africa and are integrated with a folk magick called Hoodoo (1), not to be confused with Voodoo which is an actual religion. They are given names, fed, and maintained a certain way.
However, I am not writing from a traditional Hoodoo Mojo Bags perspective, but rather from an individual talisman, personalised magick perspective.
Of course some folk reading this don’t believe in magick, so an understanding of the word magick is needed here. There is ‘magic’ meaning illusion (such as that which the brilliant David Copperfield (2) engages in). And then there is magick ~ which for me is a blending of ritual, nature, intention and connection. (That is connection with all beings and natural objects ~ people, critters, trees, rocks, water, air, earth, the cosmos.)
