Rose of Jericho Spell for a Peaceful Home

"Oh my God, make them like the wheel; as the stubble before the wind." Psalms 83:13 (KJV)

Sold in Middle Eastern markets as Kaff Mariam, the Rose of Jericho (Anastatica hierochuntica) is a tumbleweed that is found in arid regions of the Middle East and Sahara Desert. When in bloom, it bears small, 4 petaled white flowers.  The most commonly used name in English is Rose of Jericho, but it goes by several other common names including dinosaur plant, Jericho rose, Mary's flower, Mary's hand, Palestinian tumbleweed, resurrection plant, St. Mary's flower, true rose of Jericho, and wheel.

The Rose of Jericho is a unique plant because of its ability to dry up and bloom repeatedly despite being uprooted from the earth. After the rainy season, the plant dries up and drops its leaves and its branches curl up into a tight ball. For all intents and purposes, it dies. However, the fruits of the plant remain attached within the ball and can remain dormant for years. When wetted again during the rainy season, the ball uncurls and the fruits open to disperse the seeds.  If there is enough water, the seeds disperse and germinate within hours.

The Rose of Jericho has several medicinal properties. If the dried ball is placed in a bowl and allowed to resurrect, the resulting water can then be drunk by women in labor to avoid labor pains. It is also drunk by expectant mothers to ensure a healthy baby. Other medicinal uses include treatment for epilepsy, colds, and amenorrhea.

The Rose of Jericho also has a place in biblical lore. It is said to have been the plant Mary clenched in her hands while giving birth to Jesus. There is an obvious connection between its use by Mary and its use by expectant mothers; however, one can only surmise which of the two came first.  

Not surprisingly, the Rose of Jericho is perceived as magickal and miraculous and has found its place within the hoodoo tradition. It is believed to bring peace, power, and abundance to the home. To use the Rose of Jericho, place the dried ball in a bowl filled with water enough to cover the bottom half of the plant. leave it in the bowl of water and watch it unfold into a beautiful plant. Do this at 9:00 in the morning or evening on a Tuesday or a Friday while praying the following prayer:
Divine Rose of Jericho: For the blessings received from our Lord Jesus Christ, for the virtues that you hold and the power considered, help me figure the difficulties of life, give me health, strength, happiness, comfort, and peace in my home, success in my business, ability in wirk, to earn money and cover my necessities for my home and family. All this I ask for the virtues you hold in love to Jesus Christ and his Divine Mercy. Amen
Use the water in which the plant rests to bless your home by sprinkling it in the four corners of each room. Sprinkle in the doorway to remove obstacles and make room for abundance to enter your home. Use the plant with faith and you will see miraculous results.

You can find the Rose of Jericho at for just $6.95 each.

The Monkey’s Paw by Richard Miller

 ******this is quite the opposite of the horror story published in 1902 by W.W. Jacobs

For over 45 years, we have searched high and low around the world to obtain whatever our clients desire (as long as it is legal).  In the early 80’s, we had requests for monkeys paws. Some people asked for a Gorilla or Chimpanzee hand. Knowing this was inhumane and illegal we researched what people wanted it for and what they could use as a substitute.  We found that in South America many tribes used the paws of small monkeys for good luck rituals.  Some were used as offerings to their Gods and some were used to make Totems and Spiritual Potions. However, this was still not the answer to our needs.

One of our employees was visiting a part of America where hunting and trapping was still prevalent.  After befriending some local folks, he discovered what the people of that area knew - there was an animal that had a paw that appeared to be similar to a monkeys paw but was not of primate origin.  Not only that, the locals used it much like one uses a rabbit's foot or a Monkey’s Paw. Furthermore, it was a nuisance animal. It was not native to the area and it was being hunted to extermination so that the native animals were not threatened.  Yes, it was a win-win for everyone (except… well you know).
So, we put the South American Ritual together with this paw and the rest is history.  Ok, so now you are thinking, “so what makes this such a potent lucky piece?” You didn’t know I was going to quote you by reading your mind, did ya? Well the answer is this:  In this mystical world, it is not what we know that thrills, enchants, moves, and guides us to grow.  It is the possibility of choice and chance, need and thought, hope and energy, mind power and positive force that imparts to and from the source of our observations.  And thus, for those who can manifest the best in a charm can manifest success in themselves.  Get 1 or 2 today, I guarantee you will be happy with the results.
Later I’ll share with you the existence of this once plentiful animal.
