If you are new to the AIRR site and the amazing services offered by AIRR members and the AISC, here is a quick tour.

Please open a second browser window so you can follow along as you read this. In the second browser window, go to the AIRR site at ReadersandRootworkers.Org --

http://readersandrootworkers.org

We are going to take you on a whirlwind tour of our hundreds of pages, so fasten your seatbelts and prepare for the ride. Pay attention to the images that will help you see EXACTLY what terrain we are passing through.

Okay, when you open that extra browser window, you will see THREE columns of information and a Masthead across the top.

The Masthead runs across the top of every page at AIRR. Let's look at the Masthead before we begin our site tour.

The site-wide Masthead is more than just a pretty collage of images that relate to reading and rootwork in the hoodoo tradition -- it also contains two image-links, which "float" at the right side, and move to the left or right, depending on how wide you open your browser window. They are:

Every week, on Tuesday, the AIRR Tech Team posts a brand-new illustrated web page teaching about and celebrating some aspect of African-American and world-wide folk magic or spirituality. To stay up to date on new AIRR pages, click the Facebook image-link -- and while you are there, please "like" the page so that our weekly offerings will show up in your Facebook news feed.

Feel free to share these new page announcements with your friends and social media communities -- they are designed for the public and we want them spread as far as possible.


The Nav Box: How to Find What You REALLY Want at AIRR

The Navbox guides you to an  AIRR member who will perform the type of reading or rootwork you want

Now, let's say that you came to AIRR because you have a situation -- we'll call it a love situation. It could be anything (and we will list a group of situations later) but for now, let's say that your interest is in love.

The first thing you can do is to click the link to Love situations. It's at the upper right, easy to find. When you click its name, you will go to a page that gives you a basic lesson in love magic. You can read it all and learn a lot -- but before you leave the page, look at the upper right and there you will see the all-important Navigation Box -- called the Nav Box for short -- which tells you which AIRR members handle love situations, either through readings, or with rootwork -- or both. (The sample shown here is for I Ching readings, but trust us, each situation page has its own Nav Box).

Let's say that you already know about love spells and you just want to cut to the chase and get a reading for your love situation -- and let's say you want to get a reading by the method of tarot card reading. Return to the Main Page and just under the Masthead, at the top-left-center of the Main Page, you click on the tarot card link. By reading this page and its subsidiary links, you can get a basic education in card reading, free, courtesy of AIRR -- and then you can use the Nav Box to look at the list of practitioners who do this kind of reading, and click on the names, one by one, and read their personal pages. When you find a spiritual helper whose page appeals to you, you can click their "Book a Reading" link, go to their booking page, and -- clickety-click -- book an appointment for a reading. At the reading you will be given insight into the situation, and perhaps some prescriptions for spell work that you can do. (Again, the image shows I Ching readers, but every form of reading at the AIRR site has its own Nav Box.)

Now, let's say that you want to hire a root doctor for your love situation. You can find one by going to the AIRR Main Page and clicking on your condition, then selecting a spiritual helper from the list of people who will handle that condition -- but there is another option: If there is a particular way that you want the situation worked on -- with a doll, a mojo, an amulet, or a candle service -- you can also cross-check the types of spell-work our members offer and see which of the rootworkers who address your condition also do the type of spell-work you are looking for. You can also find this information on their personal pages, by the way, in the list of services they offer.

So there you have it: The Nav Box, your tunnel between dimensions.

And now, onward to the GRAND TOUR.


Directory Listings

At the far left side of every page at the Readers and Rootworkers AIRR site is a narrow brown column filled with text-only Directory Listings. These are links to a wide variety of pages about our members, as well as to the usual type of navigation shortcuts found at any web site.

Moving down the far left side Directory Listings menu, the next set of text-only links is an AISC church directory, listing churches that are included within the Association of Independent Spiritual Churches.

The Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers, along with the Crystal Silence League and the annual Hoodoo Heritage Festival, is one committee of AISC, our parent organization.

Many AIRR members are pastors and maintain small churches or chapels through the AISC -- the Association of Independent Spiritual Churches. Their AIRR services will always include readings, but as pastors, they may provide candle services, prayer services, pastoral counselling, officiation at weddings and funerals, and other services.

Some of the pastors are available to travel to perform weddings and funeral services. Please ask the individual pastors and they will let you know if they will travel to your location to serve you.

Each of the AISC churches and chapels has a physical location, but many are small and are not open to visitors at all times, so please arrange with the pastor to see if visits are possible and when. It is up to the individual pastors to make church services available, so please contact them directly.

At these Church Directory pages you can

  • Find contact information for the the church
  • Learn about each church's religious and spiritual orientation (and click the links to read about those religions)
  • Learn about the church pastors (and click the link to read about the pastor)

On the final set of text-only links at the far right of every page is a box with a few special links to help you navigate the AIRR site.

  • Main Page will always take you right back to the AIRR wiki home page. You are never more than one click away from the Main Page.
  • Community Portal will take you to a page on which you will find a list of links to many important pages on which we explain how the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers is organized, along with documents of interest to the general conjure community. For example, here you will find out how people apply to join AIRR, and what our Code of Ethics is.
  • Help is a link to a quick-link page that provides a list of the most frequently requested topics at this site -- the conditions for which clients seek help, the types of divination or fortune telling they wish to learn about, and the names of all of our current members. If you can't find what you are looking for on the "Help" page, you can always ask for help in AIRR and HP Forum at the Lucky Mojo Forum site: https://forum.luckymojo.com/association-of-independent-readers-and-rootworkers-hoodoo-psychics-f29.html
  • Search is a box that allows you to find pages that contain specific words of interest at the AIRR site. Go ahead -- try it!


Left Column

Still on the Main Page, and moving right from the brown Directory Listings area, you will see the Left Colum. It starts with a big yellow bar that indicates that it's top topic is Readings and Divination.


Types of Reading and Divination We Offer

The  Divination Methods are in the left-side column of the AIRR Main Page
The Divination Methods are in the left-side column of the AIRR Main Page

After you do that, go back to the main page again. Down the middle of the main page is a wide list of types of readings offered. Each type of reading has a picture and a short description. The types of readings include palmistry, tarot card readings, graphology, numerology, astrology, egg divination, dowsing, pendulum divination, and so forth. If you click on the name of a type of divination or the words "read more" you will be taken to a page where that type of reading is described and illustrated. At the upper right of the page, and also at the bottom, you will find a list of AIRR practitioners who perform that specific kind of reading. The list may be long or short, depending on how many participants do that type of reading.


About The Organization of AIRR

The Organization of AIRR links appear toward the bottom of the left-hand column on the Main Page of  the AIRR site
The Organization of AIRR links appear toward the bottom of the left-hand column on the Main Page of the AIRR site

Further down the left-side column of the AIRR Main Page you will see that the next section contains links to pages that tell you more about AIRR.

We are a long-standing group, online at this web site since 2009, and membership in AIRR is not open to everyone. All of the AIRR readers have rootwork experience and all of the AIRR rootworkers have reading experience.

Members are not hired by AIRR or the AISC, nor does AIRR or the AISC take a percentage cut of the money that clients pay for reading or rootwork through this site. Instead, members agree to abide by our principles and they pay a modest yearly fee to be listed on hundreds of AIRR pages.

Here is where you can check us out as an organization, and learn what who we are as a group, what we do for our clients and our communities', and why we are different than most web-based or shop-based psychics or conjure workers.

These pages tell you all about how things work at the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers, AIRR:


How We Can Help

The List of Additional Services Directory of AIRR appears near the bottom left of the Main Page of the AIRR site
The List of Additional Services Directory of AIRR appears near the bottom left of the Main Page of the AIRR site

Scroll to the bottom of the left column to find out how we can help you, beyond the booking of our reading and rootwork services. Our members are community leaders, teachers, mentors, and authors, and in this section you will see the various ways in which members reach and teach the public, including through the AISC's annual Hoodoo Heritage Festival, the Crystal Silence League, and the individual work that members offer as authors, teachers, podcasters, videocasters, and spiritual suppliers.

These pages contain general information for the public about services that our members offer in addition to psychic reading, spell-casting, and candle services:


Right Column

Still on the Main Page, going back up to the top, you will see the Right Column. It starts with a big yellow bar that indicates that its top topic is Spell-Casting for Conditions and Situations.


The Types of Conditions We Address for Clients

The Conditions and Situations Directory of AIRR appears near the top right column of the Main Page of the AIRR site
The Conditions and Situations Directory of AIRR appears near the top right column of the Main Page of the AIRR site

Now for the far right column. The first group, at the top right of the AIRR main page lists conditions -- that is, reasons you may seek out a rootworker and the life situations or conditions for which you require help. These include love situations, money situations, career situations, and so forth.

If you click on one of these conditions or the words "read more," you will be taken to a page where you can read about that condition and learn how spiritual practitioners work to help out in that sort of situation.

Again, at the upper right and at the bottom of each condition page you will see a list of AIRR practitioners who perform work for clients for the specific condition you are reading about. The list of names may be short or long -- because not every AIRR practitioner performs work for every kind of situation.


The Forms of Conjure Work We Offer

The Forms of Conjure Work Directory of AIRR appears near the middle of the right column of the Main Page of the AIRR site
The Forms of Conjure Work Directory of AIRR appears near the middle of the right column of the Main Page of the AIRR site

Go back to the main page again and scroll down to the second group of topics on the right-hand side. Here you will learn all about rootwork.

These are the forms of conjure work that our members offer to clients. Here you will see described various types of spell-casting, such as candle services, mojo making, amulet creation, doll-baby work, magical coaching, and so forth. You can learn a lot by reading these pages. Click on one of these titles or its "read more" link and you will be able to read an illustrated page about this type of work.

And, of course, each page has that all-important Nav Box that tells you which members do each type of spell-casting. At the top right and bottom of the page is a list of AIRR practitioners who perform spiritual work in this form, and the list may be long or short, depending on how many AIRR workers perform that type of work for their clients. It is here that you will learn that a candle service is a specific type of rootwork, for instance, and discover which workers will undertake such work for you.

Rootwork and Religion

The Rootwork and Religion Directory of AIRR appears near the bottom right of the Main Page of the AIRR site, and religions are listed in alphabetical order
The Rootwork and Religion Directory of AIRR appears near the bottom right of the Main Page of the AIRR site, and religions are listed in alphabetical order

AIRR serves a multi-cultural clientele including adherents of Christianity, African Traditional and Diasporic religions, Judaism, Paganism and Neo-Paganism, Buddhism, Taoism, Spiritualism, Hinduism, Native American religions, New Thought, and Islam. This section on the right hand side of the Main Page delves into each of these religious practices. While on the pages for the various religions, you will also find links of lists to deities, saints, wisdom teachers, and prophets in these religions and by clicking those links you will learn how they came to be revered, and the conditions under which adherents supplicate, invoke, or pray to them for aid

The Nav Boxes on the religion pages will guide you to AIRR members who are not only comfortable with but conversant in these forms of worship.

Lastly on the right hand side we list some public Religious and Spiritual Resources for Our Clients, including the complete Book of Psalms (with magical uses), a guide to the Islamic recitation of the Surahs, and the AIRR Pro Bono Fund, helping those in need.

This page has been a special presentation of the AIRR Tech Team. We are the volunteers who keep this site updated and online. Check out who writes and illustrates the AIRR site at our Site Credits listing.

We hope this page answers your questions and helps you understand that hiring a reader is not the same as hiring a rootworker or candle server to take your case. All of our AIRR root doctors will perform some sort of consultation or reading, but not all of our readers will take every case or work for every kind of condition or work in every style of conjure-craft, and not all rootworkers will perform candle services.

Good luck with your search for a reader, rootworker, or spiritual helper who suits your needs.
