I agree espirt I don't find anything wrong with not being initiated and still practicing voodoo actually that is one of the differences i found in Southern American Voodoo and French Afro-Caribbean Voodoo however, some Caribbean believers will disagree with this point of view, I find it flattering.

That is really interesting! I never knew that! Being an American, the only thing I have ever had to go off of was the New Orleans style "Voodoo". We had a store in Chicago, the closest metaphysical shop to my house (walking distance). Frankly the store gave me the creeps! But I would buy my incense from them, and a few gemstones here and there.

I have tried to research Voodoo and have only found the half Christian, half African magick you speak of, but I didn't know it was such a huge mixture of so many cultures! Now I want to know about its true roots!

Could you direct me to a resource that could give me good information on the original "Vodoun"? I set out to have a basic if not good understanding of as many religions and magickal practices that I can. Not to practice them, but so I can relate to other people and compare the techniques and beliefs of various cultures. I'm a huge research buff. =)
