Shalom aleichem,

Do you need plain, old fashioned, Old Testament help? Have you ended up tied up, rooted down, heart bound, or turned around? Then I can help; I am Professor Charles Porterfield, and hoodoo is my business.

Originally from Boyd, Texas, I currently live in Denton, Texas, where it is my honour and privilege to offer consultative, prescriptional, and divinational work through hoodoo and conjure. I am a proud member of the Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, and a founding member of the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers. I have taught classes at MISC's annual Hoodoo Heritage Festival Workshops and had my work published in The Black Folder: Personal Communications on the Mastery of Hoodoo. I am the co-author of the book Hoodoo Bible Magic: Sacred Secrets of Spiritual Sorcery, which discusses Bibliomancy, scripture, and the Psalms in hoodoo. I also authored A Deck of Spells: Hoodoo Playing Card Magic in Rootwork and Conjure, about the use of playing cards for divination and rootwork. I write, teach, and lecture on the subjects of hoodoo, conjure, and Judaism to help preserve and pass on the roots of our work. I am the host of The Now You Know Show which airs weekly on the LMC Radio Network, and I am a regular guest on the Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour on the LMC Radio Network, where I give free readings there to call-in clients.

I am a natural man, a husband, father, and grandfather whose specialty is helping men, directly or through their loved ones, with all manner of needs, regardless of age, race, or sexual orientation. I can, and will, put the rooster back in the yard.

As an ethical, justified, Old Testament worker, I pull no punches, and won’t candy coat the facts. I offer you the truth at a reasonable cost; if you want lies that’ll cost you extra. I listen close, see to the center, and then act. Although I am Jewish, I was raised in the South and don’t cast aside those in need, no matter what their religion or magical beliefs. If I don’t know how to, or cannot help you, I will refer you to another worker so that you will be able to work with knowledgeable, trusted, and gifted folks.

My work includes Biblical and Psalmic magic as well as prescriptions, rootwork consultations, intuitive, pendulum, tarot card, and Bible divinations, custom made mojo bags, candle work, spiritual cleansings, laying tricks and work for conditions, interpreting signs and dreams, magical coaching, giving out lucky numbers, and good, old fashioned, plain sense advice. I have a gift for making charms and lamps and can instruct you in their use for the particular conditions that you are experiencing. I will also go to the graveyard or the crossroads for my clients.

My prescriptions come with instructions and guidance through whatever actions, or workings are needed to follow up the work.

I do sell handcrafted goods created for my clients, their cost calculated on the time and material used in their construction.

Never forget that 'From the Root to the Fruit' you can accomplish your goals if you are willing to work hard, learn, and tend what you plant. Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord!

"I love, love, love the money lamp made by Charles Porterfield, who taught how to make them at a Lucky Mojo workshop. It’s a gorgeous Mason jar type money lamp with a visible hunk of pyrite, devils shoestrings, coins, herbs, and money oils in there. A rabbit's foot and an I Ching coin hang on the outside. I keep it on my altar in my office." -- M. A., CA

“I have been fortunate to have time with Charles both as a client and a student AND I can tell you this, Charles is the real deal! When you have a reading it is given with honesty and integrity. It is direct but yet compassionate, reflective and inspirational! Truthful and not sugar coated. His wisdom is imparted in a way when he teaches it just makes you hungry for more, thought provoking and it just connects in a way that your spirit and soul just says yes! This is truth! SO, if you are looking for a true psychic or spiritual reading, rootwork or conjure. A mentor or guide, YOU will NOT go wrong if your choice is Charles Porterfield!” -- T. G., TX

“I had the most insightful and AMAZING reading with Professor Charles Porterfield this afternoon!! I thought I knew what was going on inside and out with my situation, but he gave me new insight and fresh perspective on things--my eyes are so much more open than they were a few hours ago. Plus, he gave me some powerfully simple work and tips to do for remediation--and he knew things about my life that only came from God and the Professor's gifts!! Please book a reading with this gentleman today--I promise that I don't recommend folks unless I really recommend them!” -- K. W.,GA
