Is Vodou for me ?
By: / Novice
Post # 1

Many people ask themselves this question is Vodou for me ? Well something I often say is that: "Vodou is like a road its open for everyone but that does not mean everyone can walk that road."

What I see and experience is that allot of people want to be in Haitian Vodou because they want to have power they want to have pretty altars they want to be "cool" they want to be feared.

Well if your mentality is like this Vodou is just not for you as Vodou doesnt come in a place of greed but a place of being selfless. selfishness has no place in Vodou. The community is put first because without the community there can be no ceremonies or possessions.

Vodou is not for everyone as not everyone is called to serve but everyone does have spirits with them but they dont call the person to serve them. What I also see is people try to serve the spirits because someone else is doing it. what I have to say about this is that Vodou is not a fashion statement that you can flaunt around to be cool this is a serious tradition that has to be respected and not to be used as a tool to gain followers or people.

Allot of times this is people who are new to Vodou they dont listen to Priests disrespect the spirits and the many lineages that there are in Vodou because they just want to look cool. This is a way to mess up your path in Vodou by disrespecting the Priests and the spirits.

Is Vodou for everyone ?

Yes and no some people are called to serve some are not called but many are treated in Vodou with baths and other things.

I know that when Vodou is done according to tradition you really receive the blessing of the spirits and this is what I want for those who are called to Vodou.

Once again, thank you, Vodouisant, for your brilliant perception. You're the most knowledgable person I've met so far when it comes to Haitian Vodou. Thank you so much.

very interesting post.

i admire the story of haiti as well.
when voudo began, it was for breaking the ropes of slavery and it did.

i agree, and not any kind of magic should be used to become feared or look *cool*.
i never say i practice magic, in today's society, ill be called mad or disrespected, or worse maybe beaten up by some extremists, therefor i keep everything a secret. the only people who knows is my best friend who is openminded and becoming a doctor, and ofcorse my real life coven that i am in.

but again, i admire you perspective on things :D keep up the good work!
