The practice of Voodoo is something that is rarely discussed. Only in movies and television shows do people get a clear idea as to what Voodoo might be. And these media representations are wrong. It’s not a surprise that as a result, people who want to do Voodoo on their own have no idea where to start. Though the Internet does provide some information, there is much more in the Voodoo history which is passed down through oral traditions. If you’re interested in trying some Voodoo magic of your own, this is a primer on how to do Voodoo.
The Practice of Voodoo
Using Voodoo as a part of your spiritual practice or just for a spell still means that you need to treat this practice with respect. Within the Voodoo practice, there are many deities, all of which need to be pleased and honored. If you are unwilling to treat these deities with respect, you may not get the results you want from your spells and you might end up with more troubles than that. Begin your Voodoo practice with a clear heart and a true intention. For example, if you want to bring love into your love, focus on that purpose. In having a clear purpose which does not seek to harm anyone else, you will increase the odds of your success while also pleasing the Voodoo deities.
Using Voodoo Dolls Properly in Spells
Voodoo dolls are a common practice in the Voodoo tradition. These dolls are meant to represent people whose energy you want to affect. For example, if you want to bring someone into your life, you might create a Voodoo doll and then place that doll in your bedroom to attract their energy. If you want to put someone out of your life, you might take the doll and give it away or unwrap it to release their energy from your life. Remember, the Voodoo doll is a sacred object, one which is connected to the person it is supposed to represent. If you are not careful with this doll, you may cause harm to the other person. You need to be careful with the doll, using it only as you intended, and then letting it go when the spell works. Unraveling the doll is the way to release the energy of the spell and to release that persons’ energy from your control.
When Voodoo goes Wrong
Some people have seen the images of Voodoo dolls in the media and think they can hurt others by jabbing pins into the dolls. The truth? These sorts of actions can hurt the other person, especially when the connection between the doll and the person is strong. However, this is not the true purpose of Voodoo dolls. The dolls are meant to help you in your spell working, not to hurt others. It will be best if you take some time to think carefully before connecting the doll to someone else. If you are at all concerned you might harm the doll in anger or in frustration, you might want to look into other spiritual practices.
With Voodoo, you can change your life for the better and help to remove obstacles from your path. Hurting others, while it is possible in Voodoo as in any practice, is not the true form of Voodoo. Instead, you want to look at how you can use the support of the deities to promote good energy, to attract good things into your life. Being negative in your spell workings only encourages negative things to come your way.
