Pan De Muerto For All Souls Day

This is the recipe I use for Day of The Dead

1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon anise seed
2 packets active dry yeast
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup water
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 large eggs
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg yolk beaten with 2 teaspoons water

Combine sugar, salt, anise seed, and yeast in a small mixing bowl.
Heat milk, water, and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until butter is just melted; do not allow it to boil.

Add milk mixture to dry mixture and beat well with a wire whisk.
Stir in eggs and 1 1/2 cups of the flour and beat well.
Add remaining flour, little by little, stirring well with a wooden spoon until dough comes together.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured wooden board and knead until it is smooth and elastic, and no longer sticky, about 9 to 10 minutes.

Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and allow it to rise in a warm area until it has doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.

Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle.

Punch down dough and divide into 2 pieces.

Cut 3 small (about 1-ounce) balls from each half and mold them into skull-and-bones shapes. Shape large balls of dough into round loaf shapes, and place skull-and-bones on top.
Place breads on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let rise another hour.

Brush loaves with egg yolk mixture and bake.

Halfway through baking, about 20 minutes, remove loaves from oven and brush again with egg wash and sprinkle lightly with granulated sugar.

Return to oven and bake until loaves are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped, about another 20 minutes.

Folk Magic: Protection

With Halloween just around the corner being protected from evil spirits and enemies is important, especially for the spiritual worker. This is a powerful day for enemies to conjure up entities to do harm or take revenge on unsuspecting victims. Being prepared will help to ward off these attacks. Geeezzz, the life of a spiritual worker is never ending. The good news is, because Halloween is such a powerful day for spellwork, it’s also a good to do “good” magic too. This is the one day of the entire year that offers the spellworker an unlimited amount of spirits that are willing to help you out in your quest.

To Be Protected From Your Enemies For An Entire Year
Get a glass jar with a screw top lid. Paint the inside of the jar with black paint, including the bottom. Place 9 rusty nails inside the jar, 9 broken pieces of jagged glass, 9 cactus needles, and 9 black peppercorns. Get a piece of brown paper bag and rip round the edges 9 times so that there are no “straight edges”, each time ripping “away” from you, not towards you. On the paper write the enemy’s name 9 times, each on its own line. Now place a single drop of bats blood oil on each of the names (for a total of 9 drops). Using an eyedropper makes this easier. Get two black dressmakers pins and stick them through the names to form a large “X”. Place the paper inside the jar and seal it shut. The jar is to be buried in the cemetery at either 9am or 9pm.

Mano Poderosa: Healing Amulet

Hey kids.....lets make a healing medal that you can either use on yourself or on others.

Obtain a Mano Poderosa medal. You can find these medals all over the internet for pennies. Fill a small shallow container with Holy Water and place the medal inside the container to soak while the following prayer is recited (if you’re not Christian than find your own prayer ;)

O God, at your word all things are made holy.
Pour your blessing upon this medal which you have made.
Grant that whoever gratefully makes use of it
according to your will and law may,
by calling on your holy name,
receive from you health of body
and salvation of soul,
through Christ our Lord.

Add three drops of rosemary oil into the water. Place the container outdoors for three nights during the waning moon phase (to remove illness). Make sure to get up early so that you can bring the container indoors before the sun comes up.

After the third night remove the medal from the container and pour the water outdoors at the main entrance of your home.

Now you will want to dress five white votive candles with rosemary oil and recite the Mano Poderosa prayer. The five white votives represent the five fingers of Jesus. After the candles are properly dressed with oil arrange them in a circle. Place the Mano Poderosa medal in the center of the circle and recite the following prayer.

O Powerful Hand of God!
I place my soul before you,
and in my despair and anguish,
beseech you to aid me with your almighty power.
At your feet I place the devotion of my sorrowful heart
that I might be delivered from my suffering.
May the loving kindness of your power
help me and give me strength and wisdom
to live in peace and happiness.

Thou who has suffered,
reach out thy hand to me with a great blessing.
Thy pierced hand with thy saintly fingers
inspires my humble prayers.
Jesus said, “Ask, and it shall be given to you.”
Through thy most precious blood I seek,
and I ask that my prayers be heard and granted.
I carry a likeness of your pierced hand with me always
as a loving symbol of your great kindness.
And I call on the graces necessary for peace and happiness.
Grant me this request.


The medal is ready for use. You can use the medal in several ways. First you could carry it in your pocket, purse, or around you neck to protect you from could sweep the medal over the body whenever you feel illness creeping up, asking for the powerful hand to remove could keep it under your mattress and allow the healing to take place during sleep.

The medal should be cleansed at least once a month. My preference is on the first Friday of the month.
