Clear the Way with Road Opener! (Abre Camino)

Sometimes life feels like a constant up-hill climb. Everything you try to do is a huge effort, and often those efforts don't amount to anything. It's like a serious case of bad luck.

Now, in these instances it's a good idea to rule out jinxing or crossing as a cause. A good psychic reading will help you in determining the cause of your problems. If you come up clean, and aren't being hexed or crossed in any way, then you just need to have your road opened up a little.

That's where Road Opening products come into play. Road Opening (Abre Camino - as it is known in Spanish) actually comes to us from magical workers in Latin America. While it's not strict hoodoo, it does work very effectively to get your road to open up and to assist you in attaining your desires. The main herbal ingredient in Road Opening supplies is an herb called Abre Camino (Eupatorium villosum or it's more current botanical name Koanophyllon villosum). Abre Camino grows is tropical climates, and can be found in southern Florida as an endangered herb, although it is abundant in the rest of the tropics. Abre Camino's use in magic has historical roots in the Afro-Caribbean religion of Palo Monte where it is added to their spirit pots to give those entities the power to open and close energetic roads in magical work.

Combining my knowledge of herb uses in Palo along with my knowledge of hoodoo herbal correspondences, I've created Road Opener Oil and Road Opener Herb Bath - each of which is made with the herb Abre Camino along with a few traditional energetic clearing and luck herbs from hoodoo lore.

Using Road Opener (Abre Camino) Baths
One of the easiest ways to clear out your path in life is to give yourself a set of 7 Road Opener Herb Baths. These should be started on a Monday, the herbal infusion is poured over the head to wash away any obstacles, and then the captured bath water is tossed into the crossroads over your left shoulder (just as in an uncrossing bath). These baths will serve to open up your opportunities in life and make things a lot smoother for you. Keep in mind, Road Opener Herb Baths will not remove jinxes or evil magic that has been thrown at you, so it's important to check to see if the cause of your obstacles in life is due to external magic, or just plain old bumps in the road.

Roads of Fortune Spell - For Love, Money and Luck
Here is a great little spell to help open up opportunities for you in life; love, money and luck. It capitalizes on the power of Road Opener products along with some other condition oils.

You'll need:
Start by gluing your photo to the front of the glass-encased candle. Then poke 3 holes down into the wax of the glass-encased candle using a skewer. Into the holes add a few drops of Road Opener Oil. Set this candle in the middle of your work area. Now, on the red candle, carve the word "Love" and dress it with True Love Oil stroking the oil toward you. On the green candle carve "Money" and dress it with Money Draw Oil stroking the oil toward you. Finally on the orange candle carve "Good Luck" and dress it with Fast Luck Oil drawing the oil toward you. Set these three candles in holders in a triangle pattern enclosing the yellow candle with the orange as the top point of the triangle, and the red and green candles as the bottom two points. Using salt, create a line from the point candles to the central candle. You should, in effect, have three roads of salt radiating out from the central candle toward each of the three blessing candles. Dress the lodestone with True Love Oil and set it by the red candle. Dress the nutmeg with Fast Luck Oil and place it near the orange candle. Dress the pyrite chunk with Money Draw Oil and place it near the green candle.

Now, go take one Road Opener Herb Bath as described above. Once you have dried off and disposed of the used bath water properly, then return to your working surface and light up the central candle. State "OPEN THE ROAD! OPEN THE ROAD! OPEN THE ROAD!" knocking on the table each time you say it. Then light the orange candle and state "My roads in life are filled with good luck, good fortune and fortuitous outcomes. This I pray in the name of Jesus Christ! AMEN!" Next light the red candle and state "My roads in life are filled with love, acceptance, friendship, camaraderie and support. This I pray in the name of Jesus Christ! AMEN!" Finally light the green candle and state "My roads in life are filled with prosperity, money, good paying jobs, fortunate financial transactions and large profits! This I pray in the name of Jesus Christ! AMEN!"

Then begin chanting "Luck, Love, Money - OPEN THE ROAD!" over and over while you gaze into the flames that are lit. As you chant faster and faster, stamp your feet and once you feel you've raised enough energy stop and exclaim "By your holy power, Jesus Christ, AMEN!" Allow the candles to burn all the way down. When the central candle has burned out, you can then collect the pyrite, the nutmeg and the lodestone and place them in a red flannel bag. You can add a pinch of the salt from the "roads" that radiated out from the central candle too. Tie off the bag, dress it with a bit of Road Opener Oil and carry it with you for general good luck in everything you do.

Thanks for posting a road opener spell! These are hard to come by for some reason.

One question - should this be worked over the course of seven/nine days or just one?

Dr. E. said...

One day should suffice. The glass-encased candle will burn longer than the others. Just leave everything set up until it is done burning.

Should the candle wax and salt be buried near the front door when done? Is it necessary to create a mojo with the leftover remains. I had planned on creating another with master of the woods and some other herb. Not sure if two road opener mojos would be beneficial.

Hi. What's the difference between Road Opener and Van Van? Which is better in helping to remove obstacles and lead the way to a reconciliation with a friend and another reconciliation with a former lover?

Dr. E. said...

Your best bet for clearing and cleansing would be either a love uncrossing bath available at this link:

I specifically recommend that because often hurt feelings and resentments are the biggest obstacle to reconciliation.

DIANE said...

really nice clearing spell should it be done during the waning or waxing moon?

Dr. E. said...

Do it at the turn of the moon (New Moon).
