If you have ever been on an eGroup or forum that deals with hoodoo, then you would have probably come across people thanking St. Expedite for his quick resolutions in certain matters. This is a standard practice when working with St. Expedite, i.e. to thank him in public. Now when we consider any kind of spirit, they tend to become stronger with energy, and that energy is created by us, the Living, and given to the spirit. In the case of the publicity that St. Expedite gets, I think I can safely say that if you work with him, you will be working with a very strong spirit.If you are wanting a speedy solution to a problem, or just general financial success, then St. Expedite is your man. The image of him with a cross and a crow underfoot says it all. The cross bears the word “HODIE”, which in Latin means “Today”, and emitting from the crow’s mouth as it is being trodden on (not very animal rights friendly, but it is symbolism after all) is the “CRAS”, meaning “Tomorrow”. What we therefore have is a Saint that says, “Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today.” In other words, don’t waste time, if you need something now, stop stalling and pro-CRAS-tinating, and that is what Saint Expedite is all about.
If you would like to work with St. Expedite, you will need three things, a candle, a small container of water and an image of the Saint. The candle to use should be red, although in some cases I have come across, if you are working specifically for financial gain, then you can use green. The water is to feed him as water is used a great deal in hoodoo to attract and feed the spirits. The image you use can either be the picture as displayed in this article, another of him, or a figurine.Placement of these items are done in a triangle with the candle at the back, the water to the front left, and the image to the front right. Once you have this set up, you are ready to begin your work. Do remember that this will probably become a permanent fixture in your home or on your altar, so consider it long term, not just a single working with the Saint for a single solution or gain.
The first thing to do is make contact and build up a relationship. This should be done over a 9 day period whereby you go to the altar or shrine and say a prayer to St. Expedite. At this point you can include your request and a promise of the return you will give him when the work is accomplished, or you can just decide to make the contact and build up the energy between you.After the nine day period, you can make your request. Keep doing this every day until you get that which you requested. Once it is accomplished, make sure you give St. Expedite what you promised to give him. If you don’t, then he will take away just as easily as he has provided. One other suggestion. If you start working with him and a couple days later decide it is too much bother, too late. When you start, you had better see it through, or you will start to see things going south, so don’t begin working with St. Expedite unless you are committed.
You can go to him with new requests from time to time, and only then, light the candle and give him the attention he requires to accomplish each task, or you can pay him homage on a daily basis, which in my opinion would be the better option. Keep that energy flowing so that when you do need his help, he is there and ready.When the task has been accomplished, don’t forget to give him your promise. Some of the things he likes are red wine, flowers and a pound cake, and do remember to thank him in a public manner, which can be done either through forums on the internet or if it was especially big, maybe take out a small ad in the newspaper, but make sure you give him the recognition. This is not only good for him as something he likes and asks for, but it is good for you and everyone who works with him. The more people that work with him, the stronger he becomes, and then we all get what we want, which is why he has become such a popular Saint.
If you really want to pay him homage, then focus your efforts more on a Wednesday, which is his day, and this also coincides with the day of Mercury, making him a Mercurial spirit. Therefore, if you want to work on communication, the writing arts, speedy solutions, and things that denote the work of Mercury, then this is the best time. This also makes quicksilver his metal, and some Mercurial plants or herbs would be peppermint, flax, elecampane, dill, fennel, bittersweet, the leaves and bark or any product of the ash tree, cinquefoil, cinnamon, spearmint, pomegranate, poppy, and sage.There are quite a few prayers that can be found on the internet to recite when working with St. Expedite, but although I tend to prefer to sit and chat rather than recite something that was written by someone else, and therefore, not my own words, there is one which I have found I like quite a bit.
I come before you, Saint Expedite,
To remedy economic problems in my work and my home.
And to ask for your powerful support.
Saint Expedite, protect my income,
That I may obtain sufficient money for necessities,
And tranquility and joy will reign in my house.
By your grace, Blessed Saint,
I request and pray that I will achieve my desire.
(State your petition)
And I will give thanks for your glorious intercession.

Until 20th December 2010 I will be running a special on Cleansing Water. This specific item is the same Cleansing Water that I used a few months back and had such incredible results with which can be read about in my blog. What you will receive is a bottle of the water, and a box of stick incense, postage included.
This special water is created through the use of fire and water and the invocation of the Divine Name Agala'a, and its effects are very powerful. It's main function is to clear away all psychic attachments that you may have. Now just to be clear, what this means is the following:
As we meet people we link to them through energetic connections, and they link to us. Passing between ourselves and them is energy or personal power and so we "share our lives together". Depending on who we meet, some of these links can be negative to us, and they affect our lives badly. One such link is called an ibbur in Hebrew, which translates directly to Evil Eye. In many cases of the ibbur, this can actually be a deceased relative. It is not their intention to halt our lives or cause problems of course, but the attachment they create to us after passing, and the love we had/have for them, causes their energy to fix to us. This attachment causes a hindrance in life and stops our progress. Each time we try to move forward, it is like we are being pulled back, because the ibbur is attempting to direct our lives in a fashion which is not how our life is supposed to go, so we have a tug of war.
What the Cleansing Water does is very simple, but extremely effective. Unlike other magical applications to remove links or cords that are not desirable (usually ending up trying to figure out which of the millions of psychic attachments we have are the ones to remove, and not doing it correctly), this formula removes ALL of these attachments. What you have is a clean slate to start again, choose the people you want to continue on in life with and discard those that caused negativity, leaving them behind. Without the negative influences on your life, you can then move forward.
If you would like more information on the Cleansing Water, please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you.
The special I am running includes a bottle of the water (enough to use once), a box of stick incense (please let me know if there are any scents that you dislike or find yourself allergic to so I don't include them in your package), instructions on usage, and postage is free, all for only R125. The normal price of the water alone is R150 so there is a huge saving.
To order your water now and start your New Year with a clean slate, just email me on email@example.com. This special is only running for postage within South Africa. If you are living outside South Africa and would like to order, please let me know and I will see what I can do in regards to international postage costs.
