A Mojo Bag (also commonly called a Gris-Gris Bag, Spell Bag, Spell Pouch, Sprit Bag or Trick Bag) is a talisman or an amulet that protects or aids the wearer and brings the energies of its varied components to bear on a specific purpose. There are many combinations of the herbs, oils, stones, bones, small artifact, piece of mirror, magnet or lodestone, nails, etc. Sometimes these bags will also include trinkets of special value or power unique to the practitioner. The contents of the bag, including the color of the bag can vary greatly from tradition to tradition and even from one practitioner in a given path to another practitioner in the same path.
Regardless of the path or spiritual tradition of the individual practitioner it has always been important to link each to the personal energies of the wearer. Typically this is done by adding a single drop or other small portion of tear, sweat etc, from the wearer to the cloth of the bag. The binding to the wearer could is also achieved in some traditions by adding an eye lash, strand of hair, nail clipping or other such piece to the bag contents. Placing the bag under your pillow for a night while you sleep is used in some magic traditions to bind the energy bound in the bag to the wearer without the need for physical binding. In many magical traditions once a bag has been bound or activated for a specific wearer it is not to be opened or touched, or the contents touched, by any save the wearer. Doing so can interrupt the energies of the bag and weaken or destroy the magic.
The material and contents of each bag are consecrated and cleared of all harmful energy or that energy that may be contrary to the purpose of the bag. Each bag comes with a beautifully detailed card which is complete with a suggested ritual use for the bag and is printed in English and French. Made in Canada.
