Why is it Called VooDoo?
The Origins of Voodoo
The name Voodoo or Vodou which means “spirit” or “deity” in Fon; a language from The African Kingdom of Dahomey (present day Benin). It is a religion that encompasses philosophies and religions from Western Africa, and later infused with Catholic elements, to mask its true divine principles that may have actually been Anti-Catholic in nature.
Its purpose is to serve these deities in the spiritual realm, in exchange for Earthly and Spiritual benefits such as protection, restoration of Justice, financial reward, peace, etc. Voodoo is the medium that bridges a fleshly person with the intangible forces of this plane by allowing one to focus intent on an object derived from nature.
Anyone can practice voodoo, although it will obviously yield better results if you have more experience. You need ingredients and tools to exercise your will and see it manifest your wildest desires. It is also more effective than you resonate well with what you are working with.
You wouldn’t want to buy something that you cannot stand to look at, for example. If you pick out incenses or oils, when blessing your candle, get a scent or aesthetic that you really enjoy. Shop voodoo; as you browse, you start to feel yourself get excited and engaged in the items that someone devoted their time and heart into making.
These materials also contain everything that most spells require in accordance with traditional Voodoo practices, such as jasmine and lavender oils, while also praying over the items. You won’t scroll without finding several things you’ll love.
Common Voodoo Supplies
If you want to just get materials for common use or just want to ease into practicing rituals, Love Oil is a very good start. If you had a long work week, a self-love ritual is powerful, cleansing, and can increase your powers of attraction. Running hot bath water, adding drops of Love Oil in the tub, and indulging, while murmuring ancient affirmations are sure to attract self-love, that partner that ignites your soul, or just loves altogether.
Rituals that provide protection from intruders or malice can easily be executed by chanting rituals and lighting candles that are associated with protection spells. It is advised that you wear a pentacle for protection, something agreed upon many occult practitioners. Being safe from harm doesn’t require having an expensive ceremony. Just be pure, be connected, and obtain simple tools that allow you to channel your intentions, and watch them manifest.
