    Voodoo or Hoodoo?

    I checked em both out, different religions and beliefs have always interested me so yeah, like I said, I read up on them a bit and 🤬 man, if it worked, 🤬 would be cool, be on some Harry Potter 🤬 castin spells, curses and hex's and 🤬 . And 🤬 maybe it does work for some people but being that its a black thing from the slave days, I think it's a good idea for me not to 🤬 with it haha.

    🤬 that Papa Doc dude practiced it durin his little reign of terror and had zombies under his control apparently, now I gotta say, I wouldnt mind my own personal zombie slaves ahha.

    No issue with it. Anything we can do that excedes a physical boundary and crosses over into that energetic forcefield is amazing. Some people may hate it because they believe in the Satan and think its tapping into connection with it but personally if it does work I think its just a way of using your mind to do things its capable of that the normal person cannot do yet. As for personal expierience never, I want to see it come to light and work, but I would never sit through a 5 hour long ritiual when nothing will happen.

    No different than the zombies you see walking around all over the place here. Don't let them over dramatize the difference between zombies and sheeple people who can be influenced by a box in their living room. Same 🤬 , different toilet. This ain't Dawn of the Dead lol

    Yeah yeah, I didn't mean no "undead" zombies, I just ment like "mind-less controlable beings" and apparently he had them through his voodoo practices. Who knows.

    Either way though, if it works and I'm sure voodoo does for some (to an extent), then it'd be cool. Cool as 🤬 .

    That's my point. It does work, and it's taking place right in this very society. You know how they do, they call it something else whenever THEY do it or they deny practicing it altogether. MTV is voodoo. lol Their version of it.

    ...Why? You're not black?

    And no, no personal experiences, besides me hearing that people I know of (Not personally) in my community practice Voodoo...

    ...Agreed, though I'd probably do the bolded once in order to learn more about it.

    I think voodoo is dope. It's interesting to me because of its African roots. Many slaves came to the new world that practiced voodoo or some form of mysticism...that's where we get all that screamin, shoutin, and holy ghost stuff from. I wish Black people would take the time to know the roots of the people that came before us, because these days a lot of black people are white washed and ignorant in regards to their own history, and they don't even know it.

    The thought of "raising the dead" or even "speaking to the dead" freaks me out.. but on a psychological form, its quite interesting how a normal human can create so much energy to make the environment change or the things around it move... Imagine harnessing such "powers"? Although, voodoo, i believe,most of it is mental.. You believe what you wanna believe.. you believe if you've been hexed then you will run into several events that may support that idea.. The drugs, the plants, even the smoke they take in may give you that LSD buzz.. hence that zombie state..

    i think it is possible to "feel" the outerbody experience in voodoo and alter the environment.. telekinesis and all that, i believe in that 100%.. anything is possible.. universe is filled with unexplained energy forces.. in due time, someone will figure it out..

    one of my profs was a priestess (?), she spent a little time here and there breaking down african traditional religion, it is true that african spiritualism certainly had an impact on the formation of black christianity in the us

    is an african religion, particularly from the dahomey and other related peoples/regions. "Voodoo" is basically the english language version of the same word. Very real. There is no "good" or "bad" in it --it can be used either way depending on the intent and nature of the person performing it. Any kind of "magic" is basically manipulating non-physical forces and energies for various purposes, just like you can channel electricity into a toaster or refrigerator, or how a light bulb can be 15 or 75 or 100 watts--depending on how much power it is prepared to channel. Things can go wrong when you try to put a 76 watt bulb in socket intended for 60 watts (energies can get out of control).

    Common components: communication with ancestors, use of roots or other earth-based components with certain aspects, plus various symbols and so forth--and the power or suggestion.

    This is one of those things where you either know or you don't...believe as you will, or not....because almost nobody who's legit is going to be filming a real ritual. And the results of the ritual are what really counts (after the fact), not the ritual itself....like getting good grades because of consistent study habits (abstract, not quite accurate analogy but the best I could think of right now). No one is pulling down shadows and lighting from the skies and making the dust rise up and swirl...you get the picture.
