He stands six feet tall with olive skin, braided long white hair, a deep baritone voice, and a calm aura. The Tall Man is a source of protection and strength for those who call on him.
A spiritual guide in Hoodoo, The Tall Man, helps warn us of danger, protects us from nightmares, and provides ways to shield our spirits from bad energy. But asking for his help requires us to get back to our roots.
To receive his blessings, make offerings of sage, tobacco, pineapple, and honey in a wooded or forest area. As you ask for his protection, leave orange peels at the foot of tree trunks for him.
Like our ancestors, he knows the healing power of nature. Those seeking his assistance must commune with nature to receive his blessings – a reminder that our people have always leaned on the natural world for deliverance.
When calling for his protection, recite these Hoodoo Bible verses: For when I am weak, my Guides are strong (2 Corinthians 12:10). Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened and don’t be dismayed, for the Spirits and Ancestors beyond are with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9).
When we need spiritual protection, guides like The Tall Man remind us of the importance and power of ancestral wisdom and God to help guide our paths.
