I am a diviner and a spiritual worker. My divination experience spans over 40 years and I have been studying and working with hoodoo since 2003 when I took cat yronwode’s correspondence course. I graduated from that course and went on to take and graduate from her apprenticeship program in 2008.

I believe divination and magic are a means of enhancing our lives and my goal in working with you is to help you make your life better.


My earliest divination was primarily with tarot, but in recent years I have taken up the bones. After much study, practice, and under the guidance of spirit, I have developed a contemporary bone-reading method that I find both spiritually uplifting and practical. A bone reading from me will reveal the patterns that are playing out in your life as told by the ancestors and spirit. I believe that bone reading is a gift from the ancestors, and that they wish to see us, their descendants, be successful and prosperous.

A bone reading from me may result in a recommendation for further action on your part. This could be a simple ritual to ground and affirm your intentions, such as lighting a candle or going out into nature. There is no requirement that you do the ritual, but doing so will magnify your intentions and provide you with a physical symbol of acting on your own behalf toward your goal.


My specialty is working with the ancestors and I will petition them on your behalf if you need assistance in this area.

As a digital artist, I can create a custom ancestor portrait that combines several photographs into one image, providing you with an attractive framed display in the African-American tradition of honoring your ancestors on your own home altar.

I also love to teach and I will provide spiritual training to assist you in building your own connection with the ancestors.


I maintain a candle ministry where I will prepare, dress, and pray over a candle or series of candles on your behalf. I believe in the efficacy of prayer and I believe that our ancestors stand ready to help us if called. Your candle will burn on my candle altar and I will provide you with a report at its conclusion.

I am also an artist skilled in Photoshop, and if you send me the images you want to use, I can create a unique label for your candle work incorporating your images in a collage, with your words and desires written just as you want them, to further personalize the work.

If divination indicates that a ritual should be done, I can coach you in designing and performing a simple and effective rite.

I can make a honey jar and perform other sweetening work for you, or create a powerful mojo bag or doll-baby to further your goals. I also perform hands-on spiritual cleansings in person at my office.

I do not perform break-up work, revenge, crossing or cursing work. I do not do this type of work even if justified, and if I read for you and you want this type of work, I will refer you to another AIRR worker who does this type of work.

I do not do reconciliation work when my divination indicates it is unlikely to succeed. I will refer you to another AIRR worker who does this type of work.


I am the author of the book Bones, Shells, and Curios: A Contemporary Method of Casting the Bones, my work has been published in The Black Folder: Personal Communications on the Mastery of Hoodoo, and I have presented classes on Bone Reading at the annual Hoodoo Heritage Festival Workshops. If you are interested in learning to read the bones using a contemporary method, I can teach you in person or via Skype. I also teach group workshops, nationally and internationally, supported by written instructions.

You can read more about me at my Bones, Shells, and Curios website.

“Michele is a warm and very talented practitioner. She very accurately provided me with insight as to where I am on my journey, and gave me some very helpful information for moving forward. I enjoyed the reading; it was extremely healing, and I would definitely recommend her.“ -- J.M.

“My reading with Michele was very insightful. She gave me a lot of information that confirms a lot of what I been feeling and also gave me insights into those areas that I have not seen. I would come back for guidance for future questions.“ -- Y.N.

“Thank you so much! I really appreciate your insight and believe that you were so right on with numerous things. I think that anyone would benefit to have a reading from you. I never had thought about ancestors being helpful and being there for me. Love the lighting of the pink candle and letter to my daughter. You have brought a sense of peace and light to me. I would highly recommend anyone to contact you. You radiate love and joy. Blessings to you!” -- E.T., MN

“I had never had my bones read before and was quite excited about it. Michele came highly recommended and she did not disappoint! I instantly felt comfortable in a calm, peaceful way. Her explanation of this type of ancient reading was excellent and informative. I was more than satisfied with her guidance. Never meeting me before, Michele is the first to confirm my spirit guide and ancestors around me that I have always sensed. The reading gave me great comfort while going through some trying times. I look forward to having her read my bones again!” -- P.L.. CA

Michele Jackson is a great teacher. She's always well prepared, bringing hand-outs and a ton of wisdom. She has mastered the subjects she teaches and makes her knowledge easily accessible to her students. I have loved all the classes I have taken with her. Her Intro to Divination with Bones, Shells and Curios was well worth the time and money invested. -- Jo

"This was a very informative class. I learned what I needed to know so that I feel comfortable reading the bones. I actually didn't expect to learn as much as I did!! I really liked that she didn't claim this was THE way to do a reading - but explained that its what works for her after years of studying the different methods. After all, I believe that's how spirit works. Ashe!" -- G. P.
