Introduction to Voodoo
Welcome to the “How To” guide to all things Voodoo! I will be your guide into this mysterious and fascinating world beneath the veil.
The first and only rule in all magic, whether Wiccan, Pagan, Voodoo or Hoodoo is do not to hurt anyone, for what you send out will return to you three fold, Good or Bad. This is the universal law of Karma, so be warned!! Do not take this guide lightly; consider all the other possibilities before resorting to magic. True magic practitioners in any culture, live and breathe magic in every aspect of their daily lives. They respect the laws and rules put in place to protect their faith and honour their Gods. So this is something you need to respect too. What can seem harmless fun can, if done foolishly create nasty problems within your life. But if you stick to the rules and use your spells for good, you will find your life turning out for the better. Before you can use spells from any faith, you must first understand its history and the place from where the power flows. Rather than bore you for the next 40 pages going into the history of Voodoo and its origins, I am going to give a very quick over view of the important points you need to know. This is so that your journey into the world of Voodoo will be precise and to the point, whilst honouring its heritage. One animal features within the Voodoo faith more than others and this is the serpent. The word Voodoo, translated is said to be “the snake under whose auspices gather all who share the faith”. The Papa (the high priest) and/or the Mambo (priestess) are the vassals for the serpent to express its power. In Voodoo there is one supreme deity, Bondye, a boundless entity which presides over the spirit world but is not directly worshipped.

Work Repelling negative energy Basic Voodoo doll You will need:  2 twigs/sticks or even straws. 5. There are many different types of Voodoo dolls from traditional to the more modern. 2. As with all magical faiths you have to consider the Karma principle. Their long and interesting history runs down right through the ages. I will teach you how to make an all purpose doll that can be used for any kind of spell. strand of hair or something personal belonging to the intended person if possible 5 .Voodoo Dolls Dolls or poppets as some might call them. Voodoo Papa and Mambo use dolls for positive spells like healing.

Take the wool (the colour of the intended person’s hair) and wrap and style it to the top of the doll. This creates a strong bond within the doll and strengthens the connection of the spell onto the intended person. Take your threaded needle and sew in a mouth. I would advise at this point not to use super glue! As a trip to accident & emergency and explaining what you were doing would be quite awkward and embarrassing!!!! Firstly take the two twigs/sticks/straws and place them into a cross shape. It is at this point you need to add to the insides of the doll the strand of hair or piece of material. None of this has to be perfect but do try to take some time to complete the doll so that it represents a human form. Now you are ready to use the doll in your intended spell. Next take the felt and cut it into three strips. To do this. the intent is what matters most. 6 . Now the doll needs some hair. Now you need to make a face. Bind the two together in this shape using the cotton/yarn/wool.When making a Voodoo doll. Fold the felt around the body and glue it securely into place. Secure it using the glue. When you have secured the cross fully take the cotton wool and wrap it around the cross to bulk it out. take your threaded needle and reinforce it with a few simple tacking stitches. take the beads and glue them in place to create eyes. remember it is the intent that matters! You don’t have to be an artist or spectacular at crafting and sewing. On the seams at the back. one long enough to cover the body and another two to cover the arms. Do the same with the arms.

a circle must be cast. Somewhere you won’t be interrupted and is away from the normal hum and drum of life. To do this you need to say: 7 . charm or creating a Voodoo doll. How to set out the altar is entirely up to you and you alone. Now take the salt and pour it in a circle around you and big enough to fit in your altar. whether this is the dinner table or a purpose built altar table. Remember the intent. First and foremost you must find a place that you can be alone in so that you can work and weave your spells. Imagine the salt being alight. close your eyes and begin to visualise. Take a hard surface. It may take a while to find this “space” you need but over time when you have tried out a few different places. cast iron cauldron. incense & burner. drum rattle. (All available from reputable internet companies)  Ingredients for your spell  Offerings to the Lwas – Small pieces of different types of food will suffice. instinctively you will know when you have found the right place for you. remember it is the intent that is important. The circle features in many magical faiths and it is important to protect yourself within the circle and give thanks. Now you need to call Legba and ask him to allow you to go forth across the cross roads and call upon the Lwas you require for the spell you wish to perform. serpent Voodoo knife. tri skull candle holder. praise and honour to the Lwas before performing your spells. The more you believe in your power and strength the more your light will shine and the stronger you will feel. brass Wiccan bell. Flowers are best used when dealing with Erzuli along with sweets. silver light surrounds you pulsing with power that is fed from within you. Once you have done this. kneel down in the centre facing the altar. not how much money you throw into your faith.Casting/Ceremonies Before performing any spell. You will need:  Salt (Sea salt preferably)  Candles (what colour depends on which spell/s you wish to cast)  Tools of your craft – Altar chalice. Place all the tools of your craft on the chosen table and move them about until you feel they are in the right place for you. The second step is to build your altar.

It is now you explain the reason for your request. Now proceed with your spell. 8 . You are the shield that protects us from the sun. You will feel Legba with you. a fragrance only smelt by you and you alone will surround you and fill your nose.Father open the door for me. explain the spell you wish to cast and the Lwas you need.
