Voodoo MagickThe Word Voodoo (a€?heavenly intuition, vitalitya€?), originated from the language of the African tribes, and actually has a positive connotation.A  Over the years the religion of Voodoo has been depicted as dark or negative magic. A Voodoo black magic practitioner is referred to as a a€?bokor,a€? a boker has heightened spiritual powers and is a learned student of toxicology. Black magic in some countries was considered a criminal offense until 1953, and there were bokors who did not honour the positive religious energy of Voodoo. Voodoo came to America in the 18th century, the government deemed it illegal to practice and made gatherings for Voodoo ceremonies almost impossible. In the old ceremonies the king and queen took their place while bonfires blazed around them and drums were beaten. A male dancer, clad only in a loin cloth, then leapt into the center of the clearing, carrying a coffin the size of a small baby.
Any new members had to step inside a circle drawn on the ground with a piece of charcoal by the king.
The origins of Voodoo are supernatural and geographical, and the word Voodoo originates from vo (introspection) and du (into the unknown). The center post is decorated with the serpent gods Danbahlah and Aida Wea€™do, and all the colours of the rainbow, the colours are painted in a spiral band. The temple altar is called the pea€™, it is a rectangular or square platform, the height of a mana€™s chest. The Peristyle is the roofed courtyard next to the ouma€™phor, it is partly enclosed and the place where mass ceremonies and Voodoo rituals are practiced.
There are two forms of Voodoo, with one form of Voodoo small events are created to then become a reality in the material world. Supernatural beings in the Voodoo realm, are known as Loa, the two groups are: Rada-Loa and Petro-Loa. When invoking the Petro-Loa, a blood sacrifice is required, commonly used is a black chicken or a black goat. There is an honoured hierarchy afforded to the entities called upon in these rituals, and although in some cultures these entities are considered negative, or even malevolent. The most dangerous of all curses in magical practices is the Voodoo curse, those who practice Voodoo fear this magic above all others. Take your string and wrap is around the sticks, begin at the middle and go up around the head, down one arm, back across the other arm, back to the middle and down to the bottom.A  Wrap the doll in a continuous motion, going left to right, this will strengthen and reinforce your doll. The magical adepts who use Voodoo dolls can create ancients spells, they can bring good luck, misfortune, curse someone they dislike, or someone they feel has wronged them. For those genuinely interest in Voodoo magic, there are exercises that enhance magical abilities.
Wise practitioners of magic, understand and honour the Universal magic law, and practice within the guidelines set down. One of the many Voodoo rituals that is favoured, calls upon Legba, (Elegba a€“ Eshu a€“ Ellegua).
As the youngest son of Lisa the Sun god, bringer of heat, strength and energy, and Mawu the Moon goddess, provider of night cool, fertility, rain and peace, Legba encompasses these attributes as god of fate. Ceremonies begin with the summoning of Legba, thus opening the doorway to other gods, as he is the guardian at the door of the world of spirits. As part of the ceremony the Voodoo priest approaches the door several times, as a symbolic gesture, this is done until the moment Legba takes possession of one of the people attending the ceremony. The altar prepared and placed on the ground for Legbaa€™s manifestation, is in a box on the ground, or a small room, or closet near the entrance of the home. A powerful witch who is the leader of a witch circle conducts this magic for her pupil, the witch and her apprentice must have a strong bond and of course the witch must be the more powerful of the two. The apprentice witch gives the coconut to her spiritual guide, it is washed in spring water then sprinkled with earth from a sacred place, it is then covered in incense. After these rituals are completed, the sorceress ties three tiny bells to the long hairs at the end of the coconut. During Shangoa€™s time on the earth plane he prepared for his divine life, magic powers were bestowed upon him.
The power of Shango is used in court proceedings and during ceremonies he is invulnerable to fire, illnesses can be cured by Shangoa€™s fire element. To begin this ritual, six chilled red apples are required, a bowl must be purified by the sorceress with cotton balls. Goddess Oshun (Oxum, Ezili, Erzulie), goddess of love and creative powers, mistress of abundance and passion beautiful, seductive, young. As the head of witches, Erzulie has ultimate power over male gods, manipulating them to attain her own desires.
For this ritual you will require a string of pearls with small bells attached, and a feathered fanA  dabbed with expensive perfume.
During Voodoo ceremonies in which Oya appears through possession of an individual, causing the person to dance as if in a frenzy, while holding a torch in their right hand and moving as though setting trees or building a light. After placing the eggplant on your altar, take is out into the garden or the forest when it withers, allowing it to become part of the earth.
Yemaya, (Imanje, La balianne), is the female goddess of the oceans, fertility, mothering, nourishing, desirable, charming, loving, kindness. Festivals during the full Moon are held in Ymayaa€™s honour, she is seen as crystal clear and shining, dark and mysterious, all at the same time. Much of what has been written about Voodoo, has been based on fearful assumption and little knowledge. The essence of Voodoo is essentially an understanding that everything in the Universe is undeniably linked spiritually. Instead they chose to connect with, and channel demon energies which allowed them to practice their dark art.
A snake sacrifice then took place, the queen lifted a python from a box and allowed it to lick her cheek, thus imbuing her with inner vision and power and the gift of the oracle. He was welcomed with cries of a€?Li Grand Zomi, Li Grand Zombi,” he then dropped the coffin at the feet of the queen and began a wild, whirling dance, spinning around and around.


The initiate was then handed a wax effigy of a man, a piece of human bone and a horsea€™s hair. The Peristyle is also a place of healing and people can bring their sick relatives and friends to be healed by Voodoo magic.A  There is a low wall bordering the Peristyle and the A floor is of beaten earth. The Rada-Loa serves creation, the enhancement of life, elevation of the collective unconscious. As the consent of the animal is required before the sacrifice, the animal is offered food, if the animal eats the food, it is considered to have given its consent to be sacrificed. Use feathers, or strands of knitting wool for your dolls hair, attach to the top of the head. They can make someone fall in love, make someone fall out of love, and in the most extreme, cause pain, illness and death. To those sorcerers wishing to create mayhem with their magic, the tenfold law applies in Voodoo, just as the threefold law does in Witchcraft. Legba is referred to as, a€?God of the crossroads, singer, warrior, jester, guardian of the door to the world of spirits.
He has the choice to bestow cataclysmic disaster and overwhelming sorrow, or luck, benign energy, prosperity, abundance and good fortune. The one possessed by Legba takes on the appearance of an old, crippled man, they then begin limping. The appropriate greeting for Legba is, a€?Ago Ellegua.a€? Legba is called upon when the seeker needs advice and guidance. The pupil then goes to her favourite marketplace and chooses a coconut, there has to be something about the shape or look of the coconut that reminds the apprentice of her teacher. The spiritual guide then holds the coconut over a white candle until the incense and the small hairs on the coconut have burned away. The teacher witch then places the coconut behind the door of her home for three days, after this time she thanks Legba for protecting her apprentice. Shango is a warrior, judge, ruler over thunder and lightning, fearless, courageous, quick tempered, physically appealing.
The witch rubs her entire body with them, at the same time she reveals all the injustices she has suffered.
Caution is required when Erzulie paints herself with her enemies blood.A  She also has the power over Hawks. After the ceremony invoking Loa, Erzulie manifests as a beautiful, young mulatto wearing a feminine yellow, or rose coloured gown, her hair cascading down her back.
Into a bowl containing honey, place five vanilla sticks, cloves, pumpkin pits, cinnamon sticks and five dashes of nutmeg. Ruler over forces of nature, warrior, courageous, beautiful, sensual, unpredictable, charismatic and practical. Ruler of the oceans and the embodiment of female power, guardian of all nourishing entities and womena€™s affairs.
Voodoo is actually an ancient religion involving rituals, symbols, ceremonies and has as much historic relevance as any other religion. The price the bokor pays for his dark deeds, is to serve the demon in his world after his death. The dancer would collapse from exhaustion, others then began to dance, stopping intermittently to drink from the cauldron. While striking the initiate about the head with a wooden paddle, the king would chant in African dialect, his words repeated by those present. With this perspective, the world of Voodoo seems more intriguing and fascinating, than fear inducing. The lunar symbol, a model boat, is suspended from the ceiling, completing the planetary significance.
Bells, ritual rattles, thunderstones imbued with supernatural powers, chaplets, ritual necklaces, magic arms, books on occultism, drums, copious jars and pots and flags. Those not properly attired for the ceremonies, or are spectators, are permitted to stand behind the wall to view the proceedings.
In the other form the gods are invoked so their energies may be aligned to magical practices. There is more involved to Voodoo doll magic than sticking pins willy nilly into a doll, there is a process involved.
Whatever you send out to the Universe, be it good, or bad, will come back to you tenfold when working within the law of Voodoo. Most Voodoo knowledge and tradition is passed down orally and shared from generation to generation.
The ritual takes place next to the holy center of the Voodoo temple, this being a column decorated with consecrated signs. The coconut is the coconut child, the apprentice places the coconut behind the door of her house for three days.
She then imbues the coconut child with good wishes and the requests of the apprentice witch. The coconut child is handed back to the apprentice, who may then hang it on the door to her home, or place it behind the door. Shango was born as an Earth god, he lived among humans, there he reigned in the kingdom of Oyo for his entire earthly existence. Like the god Zeus, he hurled lightning bolts at his enemies, his priests also possessed this ability.
The apples are placed in a bowl along with six whole, hot, red, chillis, honey is then poured over them until the fruit is entirely covered. Once Erzulie has taken possession of a person, usually female, the person is led to the altar and uses the toiletries that are available for her to groom herself with. Erzulie is the epitome of flirtation, free love, and an abundant, decadent and opulent lifestyle. Place the bowl on your altar, and while standing in front of the altar, with outstretched arms, beg Oshun very clearly and articulately, to fulfill all your wishes. Oya is the goddess of unexpected and sudden changes, she can be destructive, using her powers to create tornadoes, earthquakes and thunderous rain. One ripe eggplant washed with red wine is required, and one wide, dark orange ribbon, which then has nine different coloured ribbons attached to it. Go to your altar and call upon Yemaya if you need her help, be very clear as you state what you want her to help you with.
Voodoo has a rich, elaborate and fascinating history, with individuals and families embracing it and passing it down through the generations.


The snake container was adorned with small bells and when the king shook it a hypnotic state was induced among those present. Live pigeons and chickens were used in these rites, which were frenzied and frightening to witness as people fell to the ground possessed. As he was absorbing the power, the initiate began to spasm and jerk, if he became fearful and stepped outside the circle, the Voodoos turned their back on him. There is a melding of the Voodoo gods, and the souls of the adepts and servants of the gods.
The ouma€™phor is the temple of Voodoo, it has religious connotations and is said to resemble the design used by Moses to build the Ark. Voodoo began very quietly in America and the Voodoo priests were able to practice for a time without interference, but over time they began to attract attention and the authorities intervened.
Deities are summoned as a part of powerful and elaborate ceremonies, within these ceremonies participants are whipped into a frenzy, with rituals combining movement and chanting. Coloured pins are use and different emotions and feelings are attached to the specific colour of the pin. As Legba is a shape shifter he is often likened to the trickster god and shape shifter, the meddlesome Loki. Legba has the power to influence peoplea€™s lives, and alter their life situation, he can create dramatic, life altering and beneficial changes.
On three successive days the requests and wishes are repeated in front of a white candle and a glass of water.
Many died as a result of his power and his subjects were not happy, they voiced their disapproval and he ascended to heaven on a golden chain. The bowl is taken to the forest and put under a tree, this is an offering to Shango who then finds a solution to the problem.
On the altar there is a bowl of water, towel, comb, toothbrush, nail file, lipstick and various other makeup items. Reflecting racial bias in Haiti, the goddess who is a dark skinned mulatto, will not submit to the black skinned dead persona€™s Loa, the ever pining, thwarted, Guea€™dea€™ Nibo.
Finally request that the goddess send riches and good fortune to the world, offering them love, health, abundance and sustenance. From moment to moment this goddess can alter her behaviour, bringing sunshine and rainbows, or weather so extreme it can destroy entire regions.
Tie the ribbon around the eggplant and keep turning it anti clockwise, while you state very clearly the life altering changes that you want Oya to bring about for you. The energy of the Sun and the Moon is invoked during all Voodoo ceremonies, with the belief that the natural energies of the Universe are the most potent of all. There is always a picture of the president of the country placed on the wall of the Peristyle, during large ceremonies flags are also hung from the crossbeams of the temple. Legba is the guardian of the bridge connecting the place of the dead with the world of the living. The recipient of Legbaa€™s benign magic will have no doubt the god has bestowed his gifts upon them.
The coconut child is then placed on the altar undisturbed for three days, after which it is painted. Shango is worshipped as the god of justice, the depiction is him with his three wives named, Oba, Oya and Oshun.
Erzulie uses her powers to heal the sick over the waters within her realm, she provides nourishment for the hungry, and shares with all the abundance the world has to offer. For her own entertainment Erzulie sometimes chooses to possess a man, once possessed the individual begins to behave like a flirtatious woman and attempts to tantalise the males who are present at the ceremony.
Her wild dancing is the energy that creates the perpetual movement of the world, her aim is to create change by breaking apart that which is old and unnecessary.
To add more impact to the ceremony, place a silver bolt, cut out of cardboard paper, on the altar. A cauldron boiling over a fire in the center of a clearing was given offerings during these ceremonies, chickens, cats, worms, birds and always a snake, would be thrown into the cauldron.
If the initiate stayed and gained enough power, the shaking changed into whirling dance movements, encompassing leaps into the air and elation as he accepted the consciousness of Zombi. The Suna€™s energy is the energy that supports the structure, peristyle of the ouma€™phor, the (Voodoo temple). He has also done the unthinkable and revealed stolen Divine Secrets to human beings, who under no circumstances are to have been given this potent information. With the consent of Legba, ancestors can return from the dead, to seek revenge if they feel they have been ill treated, or to protect their families. People kept the embodied power of Shango in their home on the altar of a house, by a rama€™s antlers, or a double bladed knife.
During the celebratory dancing rituals Oshun selects particular women as intermediaries, those chosen are connected to the goddess for their entire lives.
A witches broom festooned with ribbons in Oyaa€™s colours will symbolically sweep away past and clear the way for the new.
Poultry and fish are offered as a sacrifice to the goddess, yams and cowrie shells are given as gifts. The wooden center postA  is the integral part of all Voodoo temples, it is the a€?solar support.a€? In all Voodoo rituals and ceremonies the center post is referred to. An iron bar which is said to have fallen from the sky, is a cosmic symbol of sexual desire, this is planted in the center of the fire. Others consult the women selected by Oshun, seeking their wise counsel in matters to do with children, fertility, love and life in general.
She can be dismissive of women, with the gesture of extending her little finger in a somewhat, demeaning gesture.
The king awakened him by hitting him with the wooden paddle, he is then given the oath of the Voodoos. The axis, the center post, is a representation of the Voodoo god Legba, while the wood of the post denotes Mercury, and Mercury is also Legba.
