Is Voodoo Real?
Is Voodoo real or just a bunch of hype that Hollywood uses to draw in box office dollars? Based on my experiences with New Orleans Voodoo, I can assure you it is real.
New Orleans Voodoo
Many people cringe at the very mention of any kind of Voodoo. Visions of zombies, voodoo dolls and curses come to mind and it's quite understandable because Hollywood movies have portrayed Voodoo in a very negative light for many, many years. In reality, Voodoo is a religion whose principals are based on harnessing the forces of nature to work in one's favor. There are saints in the Voodoo religion that are comparable to the saints in Catholicism. In much the same way as Catholics pray to the saints for help, the Voodoo practitioner petitions the appropriate saints for help in reaching their desired goals. Usually altar sessions are done repeatedly for 9 days and once completed, the offerings from the altar are left in nature for the saints (or LWA as they are known in Voodoo) to have. The offerings are tokens of gratitude to the LWA for listening to and helping with requests.
For ten years, I studied New Orleans Voodoo and practiced the rituals. I was truly amazed at just how effective these rituals were for me; at first results were slow in manifesting but the more I used them, the more effective and powerful they ultimately became, rendering me results in amazing and unbelievable ways. My petitions were always for positive desires, never negative because negative requests if unjustified can and often do backfire on the petitioner bringing some very unpleasant results.
Is Voodoo real? Yes, it most definitely is real but it takes unwavering faith, patience and tolerance for it to begin to show results for anyone attempting to practice it.
