What is it about Railroad Spikes that makes them effective?~~~

I was asked  recently by a reader of my blog while she was reviewing my blog site, "What is it about Railroad Spikes that makes them important in protection and such."

I really like the "and such" part which covers a lot of things.

Railroad spikes are made of iron, not steel, but iron and cold iron is always effective against negative energy.

There is a legend about that among Christians that it was iron spikes or nails that were used to nail Jesus to the cross when he was cruisified, and because it was used upon the Son of God and his blood washed over the iron that iron will always either contain or destroy evil. 

Its more than that, iron can be magnitized to create a magnetic field which can affect energy, if you've ever seen those games where there's this cartoon face enclased in a flat plastic sheet and at the bottom are all these black filings, those filings are iron and you run a magnet over them they become attracted to it and you can create hair or a mustash or beard, eye brows or something.

But Iron can also be magnitized to create and open or shut closed a spiritual dementional portal.   That is why old time cemeteries have iron gates and fences or at least posts to create a barrier to keep spirits in, at least the negative ones.  But also to prevent anyone who practices necromancy from using the spirits of the departed unwillingly.

It's different if you buy the spirits services and leave a "payment" because then the spirit can refuse to assist you, but in necromancy the spirits are enslaved, so the creation of iron gates and fences are for everyone's protection, alive or dead.

In opening or closing a portal one can use newly made iron spikes, not necessairly railroad spikes, these are thinner and with a sharp point to drive into the ground or the wall and need to be magnetized, you can find on other websites how to magnetize iron spikes, the process is fairly simple.

But used Railroad spikes for protection, shielding, and warding is the best.   Why used?  Because they have been infused with the energy of the desile or steam trains that run over them again and again.  Espeically Steam Trains---why Steam trains, because they are alive, they breathe, they fire up to become active, they have a sort of song they sing with their whistles, an Engineer working with a steam locomotive can feel right through the metal plates how the engine is running, the Steam train "talks".  

The native americans when they first saw the Steam train in the Mid- 1800's,  thought it was a living breathing monster and called it the iron horse, they also realized that the iron horse could only go where the iron path was, so if they "removed" the path it would stop or destroy the iron horse. 

Some times if one goes to a place that runs historic steam trains you might be able to buy the used iron rail spikes as souviners from the steam tracks. 

In Ifa or Voodoo they are associated with one of the major Orisha's that is a warrior god.  But in witchcraft they also have their protection uses.

Never get the spikes from an active, in use rail line, it could cause serious destruction,  it is different if its from an abandon rail line or if you buy them from a metaphysical shop,  since many goods are still be transported by rail, there will always be used spikes available,  they don't have to be straight, they can be curved or curled, but always obtain them legally.

If you come across an old abandon rail line and you can remove the spikes, leave a gift of cigars and white rum, just place the cigars on the tracks and pour the rum on the rails as tribute, they represent the fire and earth element for which the spikes are forged.

If you buy them the payment is to pay for those offerings,  prices range between $3 to 10 dollars a rail spike,  but I would try to not go over $5.

There is another source for iron spikes but not from a rail line.  

There are organizations that do period re-enactments, such as the Civil War groups,  they buy their equipment from Sutlers, and those Sutlers that offer period tents for sale most of the time will offer tent spikes as well and these are made from iron,  these are longer and slimmer than railroad spikes and are only infused with the energy of being forged, it does not make them any less effective but if you cannot find railroad spikes for sale, these are a good substitute.   So just google in the word  Sutler or Sutlers Civil War and you are bound to come up with a number of sites.

And that is why Railroad spikes are so effective.

  1. Precious I have read both blogs I'm confuse never get spikes from an active in use rail line it could cause serious destruction do you mean if I take them home it will cause serious destruction in my household or taking it from the line the destruction will cause there.

    1. My Dear,

      I should have been More clear on that. LOL!

      I gave that warning because, sad to say, we have a lot of very dense minded people who think removing the spikes from an active rail line is more powerful, that is no so. But that is how some folks think.

      My Grandpa was an employee for the Railroad and he’d get really ticked off because down in some Southern areas some people would deliberately remove Railroad spikes from a rail line that was and still is in active use, not realizing that to do so would weaken the trackage and cause the trains to go off the tracks causing serious havoc and death.

      It is best to look for rail lines that have been abandon, and are no longer in service, near where I live we have an abandon rail yard that is going to be eventually made into a park once it’s cleaned up, and from time to time I walk along it with my grand nephews (they love old stuff like that) and we find old loosened rail spikes. That is totally different.

      I also knew of a rail road worker who when they were replacing old spikes with new ones or fixing a rail line would save the old spikes and sell them to a metaphysical shop, but these were discarded spikes.

      But I also knew of a fellow who would remove (i.e. steal) the spikes right out of the rails from an active in use line, and I would call the Rail company to warn them and they had to send out a repair team to fix the rail so the rails wouldn’t separate and the rail cars come crashing all over the place.

      So it’s not so much destruction at home as it is really destruction to the railroad and its collateral damage.

      But the fellow who did take those spikes from an active line, well since I knew where he lived, I reported him and he was arrested for the crime of sabotage, he thought those rail spikes would protect him. So I guess one could say that it did bring a form of destruction to him.

      But that is what I meant, take the spikes from an abandon or disused rail line. If the rail road decides to start reusing it, they will do maintenance work on the line before activating it.

      Now if you’re walking along (safely) an active line and you do find a discarded rail spike, that is one that was removed by the track maintenance workers and left there, that is fine, no harm is done, not to anyone. You’ll be just fine. Just watch out for on-coming trains.

      Bright Blessings,

  2. Hello i liked reading this information on railroad spikes but i have a question what if you find them on the ground by random i have found two of them in different places ?

    1. Dear Mizzsincity,

      This is Ms. Q's niece, as you maybe aware of Ms. Q suffered a serious heart attack and has retired from writing her blog.

      However your question was an easy one so I read it to her and she replied that since you found them on the ground by random, they were discarded spikes left by the railroad workers.

      You were meant to find them as it seems the Higher power wants you to be protected. Ms. Q says that is a blessing and to use them wisely.

      In Ms Q's words Bright Blessings
