High John the Conqueror Root
The spirit of High John supports the properties of success, luck, strength, and it also helps to overcome obstacles. “He” is a powerful addition to rituals that offers a boost of “extra”.
High John (the person) is believed to be the captured son of an African King. As a slave he was an inspiration to other slaves because he was never subservient. He was exceptionally skilled at making a fool of his owner. His reputation was so great that, the folklorist Harry Middleton Hyatt indicates merely reciting the words “John over John” is a powerful spell for magickal protection against being “hoodooed”!
The easiest way to reap the benefits of High John is to carry it on you. When you carried you’ll never be short of luck in love or money. (Gamblers have often carried it to boost their luck – although I’m not much of a gambler so I can’t vouch for this.)
