  • When a person dies it's believed that their spirit merges with the Da which then flows in to nature. When a person dies, her soul may also merge with her guardian spirit and reincarnate as a new person with some of the same characteristics as the old.

    In addition to venerating the Ioa and the ancestors, Vodounsis have several practices to help them adhere to the requirements of their religious path. They hold rituals to honor the Ioa and ancestors. They also practice divination and magic to correct imbalances in the ache (which is the spirit or soul). Which is usually done under the advisement of a High Priest, the Ioa or the ancestors...

    I'm far from an expert, and I do not actively practice Vodoun, Hoodoo or Santeria, but I have a great interest in them. So if you have questions let me know, I will do my best to answer them...

  • Voodoo is basically withcraft. The practicing of divination. You definately tap into the demonic realm and get things from demons.
    Whether you believe it or not. It is a real practice.

    There is no need to be rude,you can show some class and speak proper english. People are simply answering a question. You should be polite.

    Answer:
    I really belive that good and evil exist. And just like there are good people helping others there are also bad people trying to harm others. Things like voodoo are quite common in other countries. We had an argument with an older neighbor and the following week our pets began to die, one at a time. First a fish, the a bird, then a cat, and then our dog. the vet told us they all died from heart failure and that it was very odd. When we came home from the vets office our neighbor smiled and said "How are your pts doing?" The old lady died the day after and things went back to normal, her daughter came to see us and apologized for her mothers behavior and for practicing santeria on us
