New Orleans is a city that has an amazing food scene, ancient history, and interesting hauntings; i should know i visited it.
I mean its really an awesome city if you ADORE halloween and scary things especially. Some people love New Orleans just because of the hauntings. In New Orleans there are signs on houses broadcasting hauntings. Apparently according to our tour guide, it attracts buyers (as crazy as that sounds).
One thing i recall from my trip, and a lengthy tour on the history of New Orleans was the guide discussing Voodoo.
Voodoo is a religion that originates in Africa. In the Americas and the Caribbean, it is thought to be a combination of various African, Catholic and Native American traditions. It is practiced around the world but there is no accurate count of how many people are Voodooists.
Voodoo has no scripture or world authority. It is community-centered and supports individual experience, empowerment and responsibility.Voodoo is different in different parts of the world, and varies from community to community. This is mostly about Voodoo in New Orleans and Haiti. Voodoo embraces and encompasses the entirety of human experience. It is practiced by people who are imperfect and may use religion for their own purposes.- http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/827947
What voodoo is not is a form of witchcraft.
Now i am not going to lie i have looked up videos about how to make voodoo dolls and i actually got yelled at by a friend who commented it was POWERFUL SHIT and not to ever buy a doll on Ebay because someone else made that and you can actually hurt yourself by doing that!
There are very specific ways to make a voodoo doll and he wouldnt tell me unfortunately…but the question i have remains:
Can you actually harm someone with a voodoo doll? Is this a thing?
Let me know in the comments below!
