In Part One of this two-part interview Mambo Liz Ruth of Big Liz Conjure and Ezrulie's Garden shares a bit of her wisdom. She dishes on spiritually empowering her daughters, her family's relationship with the Gede, and on her adventures as a Spiritual Practitioner, Education, and Diviner when COVID first emerged.
Mambo Elizabeth Ruth (Soleil Levè Bon Mambo) is Haitian Vodou Mambo Sou Pwen, Witch, Rootworker and Diviner who trained with owners of The Vodou Store for two years. She also initiated as a Mambo Sou Pwen in Haiti in 2018. In 2015, relocated to central Ohio after spending her adult life as a resident of Chicago. She was raised by her maternal grandparents in a small town in northeastern Ohio. Her grandmother was heavily interested in astrology, UFOs, the Occult, and she communicated with the dead. When Mambo Liz was growing up, Gede (Vodou spirits of the Dead) always visited members of her family right before someone died. The spirits of her Ancestors were also frequent visitors in her home, and they continue to visit her to this day. Their reemergence in her life is why she began her training in the occult.
She also spent vacations in her youth with her paternal grandmother and family in Alabama where she learned about the spirituality, folk magic, superstitions, and customs of the American south.
Mambo Liz opened her online store, Big Liz Conjure
(https://biglizconjure.com) in 2013, and she recently opened a brick and mortar store, Erzulie’s Conjure Garden, with her family in 2019 (https://www.erzuliesconjuregarden.com)
She offers her services to clients internationally to assist them with spiritual issues using divination and Hoodoo/Conjure. She performs Playing Card, Tarot, Lenormand, and Candle Divination services. She also teaches other magical courses and mentorship through her website and store. She takes pride in also selling high-quality spiritual products to her clientele to use in their practices.
Her religion/magical practice is Hoodoo (traditional African American Folk Magic) and Vodou. Mambo Liz also studies Traditional Witchcraft and combines them both in her magical workings as appropriate. She is diverse in her work, and she is comfortable working with clients from all backgrounds. She is often sought out for readings and workings when clients are at a crossroads in their life and need spiritual guidance to move ahead in the right direction.
She sees Haitian Vodou, Hoodoo/Rootwork, and Divination as her ministry. Her work as a spiritual life coach has changed many lives for the better, and this is her mission as a future priestess and a witch.
