For 6 years I worked next to a woman named Alafreda. She was a self proclaimed Wiccan, or a white witch. Really, this gal was very much into practicing spells, superstitions, and magic type stuff. Me, being the nosey, want to know everything about anything type of person, I asked her endless questions about her practices. She was a good sport about answering them.
Alafreda was very odd. On a few occassions, I witnessed her ‘chanting’ to herself. I’d glance over at one of our mutual co-workers named Judy and we’d both kinda shrug, then back to our work. I always wished Alafreda was chanting “make this work day end soon” but I never knew what it was she was uttering under her breath. In the place that we worked, a politically correct environment, management and other ‘uptight‘ employees frowned upon such behaviors. More than once, Alafreda was called into the boss’s office over her ‘work performance’. There was nothing wrong with Alafreda’s work quality, she just did not fit into the management’s idea of what an employee should be. You know: Southern Baptist, God-fearing, conservative, republican, not into the occult, that kinda stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I am a Republican, on the conservative side but not to the extreme, I have nothing againsts baptists either. Myself, and most others didnt give a hoot what Alafreda or anyone else did, just leave us alone and let us get our jobs done.
We had a supervisor who was nasty tempered and a first class b*tch. She pranced around our workplace like she was some kind of royalty…..she was royalty all right-a ROYAL b*tch. Luckily, she didnt venture into our department much….too much work going on there for her to be around. Anyhow, she disliked Alafreda with a passion. I think bosslady was jealous because Alafreda is a small, slender, beautiful woman who is just gorgeous naturally. The bosslady had to really, really work at keeping herself up. Weekly salon visits, Weight Watchers, 4 inch think Merle Norman cake makeup…you know the type.
One day, bosslady was on the rampage. She was mad about a missed deadline and everyone inside the building was paying for it whether they were at fault or not. She stopped at Alafreda’s desk and made her put away some Occult artwork that was displayed, then berated her about some work. She tried her best to humiliate Alafreda in front of the rest of us. I spoke up and told bosslady she was out of line, then Judy backed me up, then 2 other employees came to our aid as well. I figured I’d get shit-canned for my big mouth, but I was not. It seems that very evening, bosslady had a ‘nervous breakdown’. That was all we were told by the big wig in charge. Bosslady was gone for good. The building was buzzing about what happened in our department the day before. When Judy and I asked Alafreda if she had anything to do with bosslady’s affliction, Alafreda said”No.” with a smile and a barely noticable wink.
If Alafreda did or didnt have anything to do with bosslady’s mind fracture, it was kinda neat how the whole thing fell into place those 2 days. Shortly after that happened. I was complaining to Alafreda about my money woes I had back in those days. A couple of days after our conversation, I had all but forgot about whining to Alafreda about my sad financial state, she approached my truck on lunch hour where Judy and I were smoking one last cigarette before we went back to work. Alafreda handed me a small package containing a green candle, crystals, some leafy stuff, and homemade rope. Inside the package she had written instructions on how I should I burn the candle, place the rope, leaves, and to put it in the West window of my home. I was kinda shocked. But, I am one of those people who is game for anything, occult or not……well, non-scary non-devil worshipping occult stuff. I went home that evening, burned the candle. Then promptly forgot about it.
Saturday, 2 days after the candle burning spell, hubby and I were nearly dead-broke after paying all of our bills and purchasing groceries/household stuff. We went into town to rent a movie. I had badly wanted to go to out to the movie theatre, but we could not even afford that. Hubby and I went inside the movie rental, we picked out a movie, then walked back to our truck. As we approached our pick up, hubby and I both looked down at the front passenger’s side tire and there lay a big wad of crumpled up money! Hubby picked it up, no one was parked near us. He got inside the truck and we counted it. It was $175.00 in dirty ones, fives, and tens. Guess where we went? Out to the movies! I do not know if that was just pure luck or if Alafreda’s spell helped. I like to think it was Alafreda’s spell……..
I googled something about Halloween and somehow I ended up reading about witchcraft and stuff like that. Kinda got side-tracked from looking at Halloween jack-o-lantern designs and found myself at a cool spell site, Free Spells and Spellcasting. I immediately thought of Alafreda. I wanted to share some of those spells with y’all.

Voodoo dolls are used to represent the spirit of a specific person. You can address the doll as if you are talking to that person, requesting a change in attitude, influencing the person to act in accordance with your wishes, your desires. You can request the doll to call upon powerful forces known as Loa. You can perform a simple but effective ritual to fulfill a specific dream, an urgent desire. This timeless ceremony is carried out to persuade the spirits to exert their influence in this world. Voodoo means “Spirit of God.” It’s a system of beliefs originating in Africa. It is estimated that Voodoo has over 50 million followers worldwide. 50 million is A LOT of people! I like Voodoo dolls. I want one……
