Who is rated the best on AIRR of hoodoo rootworkers, I have a complex problem that needs solved, who can do rootwork?
Every worker at AIRR can do rootwork. Every worker at AIRR has a minimum of two years experience working for the public, professionally; most have much, much more than that. We all handle complex cases all the time. There is no rating system, and "ratings" and "awards" are two of the warning signs for scam artists and unethical practitioners. Anybody claiming to have received a spellcasting award or to have been voted #1 in something or other is lying. There is no such organization that awards such things, tracks workers, assembles ratings, or anything like that.
The underlying problems with looking for ratings are numerous; I'll just touch on a few. First of all, what are the established criteria by which to "rate" a worker? If you named yours, I can guarantee you that the next person to name their own will have at least one different criterion or will give one criterion more weight than another. Every case is unique, every worker works a different way, and so much depends on "fit," on communication and on the worker and client "clicking." If you go read one of those forums dedicated to folks reporting on their experiences with spellcasters, you will quickly realize how ridiculous and often contradictory the various members' criteria for rating or judging a spellcaster are. There are no rankings, there is no organization that would track such things even if there were, there are no criteria by which to "rate" workers that are logical, fair, verifiable, and able to be applied across the board. There's just no such thing as "the best worker" any more than there is any such thing as the best doctor or the best lawyer. Workers, like doctors and lawyers, have different specialties, different criteria for taking cases and accepting clients, different styles, and different ways of working. There is no such thing as "the best worker" any more than there is such a thing as "the best lawyer" or "the best doctor." (Though obviously there are some dermatologists that have better reputations for, and more experience with, adult acne in a certain city than others; but then again, they might not be in your insurance plan or you might not be able to get to their office easily. There are LOTS of criteria for choosing a worker or lawyer or therapist or financial advisor or anything else, and "customer satisfaction" is a pretty nebulous thing to go by.) And I realize this is going to piss some people off, but a lot of times a client is not in a position to rate a worker on anything other than bedside manner and communication style, which are part of the picture but certainly not the whole picture, and arguably not the most important parts. You just can't apply statistics to this kind of thing.
If you are looking for a phone reading so you can have reconciliation work done, I'm not the worker for you. If you some good old fashioned smiting on your deadbeat ex, there are some workers who don't do work like that and some who will gladly do that work for you (after a reading or intake appointment or consultation or something). I will do that kind of work if it's justified, if it will benefit the client ultimately, and if the client is not a total stranger to me or comes recommended by a colleague. But I have no patience with frantic lovers who think their breakup is an emergency and who will label messages "urgent" and then say "he didn't call me last Friday!!!"; you will not want to come to me about that kind of thing. (If that hurts your feelings or seems disrespectufl, I'm sorry, but while you're texting "urgent," I'm dealing with an actual emergency with a client whose child is being abused by the custodial parent, or who is two days from eviction, or whose spouse has just died and left him with tons of secret debt, so no, your love life is not an emergency.) But there are other workers who work with those clients well and have the patience to deal with them and educate them about how reconciliation and return-a-lover work works. Most professional workers will be able to tell you something about themselves, their way of working, and their philosophy and communication and reading style; you should find one who appeals to you and drop them a line. I'm sorry to say that that's the only way to do it - there is no ranking system and no way to rate rootworkers in any kind of across-the-board system, no way to get reliable statistics (be wary of anyone who says they have a percentage success rate - that's a warning sign that I've written about in another "questions you've asked" post), and no way to tell whether they will take your case or what they will say or do until you talk to them. I know some very good, very experienced workers who have a reputation for being "testy" or "bitchy." I have been included in that number, in fact, before. But I have plenty of clients, some of whom actually like me. It takes all kinds!
For some people, being treated with kid gloves is more important than the truth or the bottom line (and what constitutes "kid gloves" or even "respect" is a question of definition, I assure you). For others, they can take a blunt response if they know the worker is being honest and has their own best interests at heart. No two clients will have the same criteria that are ranked in the same order of importance anyway. One client can get along famously wtih one worker and their best friend can be turned off by or dislike that worker. (Same with clients on the worker's end.) But I can tell you that every member of AIRR has been trained, vetted, investigated, and tested; interacts regularly with at least some of their AIRR colleagues; adheres to AIRR's code of ethics; and will participate in mediation if the client has a legitimate problem with a contracted service. ("She hurt my feelings" or "my lover hasn't come back yet" are not legitimate problems.) Also, you can always contact a worker and, if they can't or will not help you, ask them for a recommendation to a colleague. We are all colleagues and we know each other - if we think another worker will be a good fit for your case and your personality/communication style, we can probably suggest someone. But while some of us may be better than some others on reconciliation work, or on gambling work, or on protection work, none of us is across-the-board "better" or "higher-rated" than another. There is no such thing as a legitimate rating system, and the people who would expect such a thing give themselves away as not knowing a whole lot about how this stuff actually works, and thus as clients who will need some educating before their case can be accepted.

Can Santisima Muerte be petitioned for uncrossing and healing?
If you are already a devotee of Santisima Muerte and have a strong relationship with her, you probably wouldn't be typing such a thing into Google, so I'd wonder why you want to do this. There are plenty of other saints to petition (and plenty of non-denominational methods) to get help with uncrossing and healing, and it seems like an odd place to start for your first approach to Santisima Muerte. As with any saint, I advise that you establish a good working relationship with him or her before asking for favors. And the penalties for treating this saint with disrespect can be harsher than the penalties for another saint, so that's why I don't advise you just go buy a holy card, bring it home, and start demanding shit. However, preaching and caveats aside, the short answer to the question is yes, she can be petitioned for uncrossing, healing, and a host of other things. Those who have long-standing, strong relationships with any saint will petition that saint for all kinds of things. That's how patronage works, which I touch on in an explanatory post on working with saints as well as in various posts throughout the years including the one on St. Martha (particularly in the comments section of the version on livejournal).
As you can see from this photo essay by Time magazine, devotees petition her for all kinds of things, sometimes the same sorts of things one would petition any saint for, and sometimes for the kind of assistance that other saints wouldn't touch. Here is a collection of prayers that demonstrates some of the range of things for which her devotees call on her. Above all, I think it's important to recognize her and to honor her. Get to know her and let her get to know you. Give her gifts and make a place for her in your home and your life. Use the rituals and traditions of the Catholic church - don't skimp on tradition, on the incense and scapulars and rosaries, on the novenas. Invoke and establish a relationship with a figure like St. Michael or St. Cyprian (or Christ or the Trinity or Holy Family) as well, to honor and call on alongside her. Then you can ask her patronage for blessing, uncrossing, healing, protection, money, justice, etc. But if you've never dealt with her before, and you have a pressing need for uncrossing or healing, I'm not sure why you'd want to start with her for your first attempts - there are simpler and safer ways to approach your goals. But once you have a relationship with her, she is a powerful ally for all kinds of things, is said to love and protect her children fiercely, and will help the under-dog and the disenfranchised get help and justice from persecution.
Can you put Erzulie Freda with Santa Muerte?
I would not recommend this. First of all, they come from two totally different traditions. This is not a buffet and neither will appreciate being treated as mix-n-match. Second of all, they have very different personalities and very different realms. Third, they have both been described as a bit choosier or pickier about the company they keep than some others might be, and neither is a spirit that you want to piss off. Fourth, they do not like the same decor or offerings. Fifth, you complicate an already complex situation by risking displeasure if one perceives that you are treating the other better or not giving her the respect or offerings she deserves; Freda especially can be picky or demanding, and you don't need to invite trouble. If you don't have much room in your home and can't give every saint a separate altar, at least delineate separate areas; for instance, if you have only one mantle on which to keep statues, then have one section set off with a cloth covering of a color appropriate to your work with Santisima Muerte (if you are setting an altar up to her for the first time, I'd start with her white aspect), and have a separate section with pink or lighter blue or a lacy white cloth for Erzulie Freda, so they have their own "rooms." But I have heard of both of these making their displeasure known in very unpleasant ways; I wouldn't do it, personally. I have Erzulie Freda and Erzulie Dantor in separate rooms of the house. I happen to have Erzulie Dantor, the Ghuede family, my ancestor altar, Ogoun, and Santisima Muerte in the same room, but each has their own altar structure, table, shelf, whatever. Dantor and Santa Muerte don't share the same wall (but Santa Muerte shares the same wall with my ancestor altar). My Santisima Muerte altar also has St. Cyprian and St. Michael materials on it, though both St. Cyprian and St. Michael also have their own full altars separately.
Why did my goofer dust fail?
There are way too many moving parts in any given working for anybody to be able to answer that without more information, or for any query you type into Google to be able to supply you with an answer. You might have made or deployed it wrong, you might have done everything right but your target has thorough protection from such tricks, or you might have done everything right and your goal is not the will of God.
How to make Martha the Dominator work in three days?
First of all, I would caution you that you can't "make" a saint do anything. Second of all, don't micromanage stuff like this; it's not very smart. If you go to a lawyer for a problem, you tell him your problem, and he takes your case, and then you let him do his job. You don't dictate the terms and you don't tell him what day your court case is going to be and what the sentence is going to be, and if you tried, he'd at best laugh and he might just show you the door. You don't go to a doctor or therapist with a problem and then tell them how and when to fix the problem; if you do, you're a fool. You don't go to a family member or friend and ask for a favor and then demand that they carry out that favor according to certain details; you ask for the favor, and you politely let them know what you need ("I really need to have the car by 3 pm so I can pick X up at the airport and then I could return it on Sunday, if that's ok with you").
You petition a saint for their intercession, and you let them know what you need, and then you get the hell out of the way. If they grant your petition, you thank them. If they don't, well, maybe it was the will of God, or maybe you were a jerk; maybe there is a good reason that you can't have what you asked for in the timeframe you asked for it in. Maybe three days is unrealistic, and you screwed yourself by insisting on three days - they could have done it in 7, but since you were a jerk about the 3 days, now they aren't going to do a damn thing, because you need to learn a lesson. The saints answer prayers, but sometimes the answer is "No." You still treat them with respect because you have a relationship with them. If you didn't have a relationship with them before you asked a favor, then that was your mistake right there. What would you think if a new person moved into the neighborhood, knocked on your door, and asked to borrow your car for the weekend? You'd think "who the hell is this guy and what is his problem, he can't even introduce himself first?" Sure, there is a long tradition of "compelling" saints and spirits through such measures as turning a picture upside down, whipping a statue, taking something off their altar to return when they come through, etc. But you had damn sure better know what you're doing, have a pre-established relationship with the saint, and know that you aren't risking extreme wrath if you go that route with this saint (not every saint is petitioned/treated this way). Traditionally, such coercive measures were used in emergencies - if the monastery crops were failing and people were starving and the continued existence of the Church and thus the saint's home was threatened, it would be appropriate to set the statue on the floor and be a bit more emphatic about your needs. If it is not an emergency, though, and if you don't already know what you're doing, I would think twice about taking this route.
[*] I don't mean to imply that the only ethical, experienced workers are AIRR workers. There are good workers elsewhere too, and I count plenty of non-AIRR readers and workers as colleagues and friends. I just happen to know the ethics and vetting of AIRR workers, so I can speak in detail and in confidence about them.
