Black Magic is the use of supernatural powers to the benefit of one’s own needs and desires.
Voodoo is one of the most ancient forms of religion that originated in west Africa from a time unknown and has evolved by influences from Roman Catholics, Mysticism and Spirituality.
The Voodoo Dolls contrary to popular belief are called Razenga Voodo Dolls and their actual purpose is for worship and as protection from evil spirits. But black magic users can use them for other purposes too.
In the Voodoo religion there is concept of one eternal God named “Bondye“, he is unknowable and does not intercede in human affairs but there are powerful spirits who serve him these are called “Ioa” and these are responsible for controlling the different aspects of life in this world (this is analogous to the concepts of a God and his Angels in the Christian, Islamic and Jewish faiths). Vodouists direct their focus to these powerful spirits to influence various aspects of life by making offerings, creating altars and holding rituals.
The most notable loa include Papa Legba (guardian of the crossroads), Erzulie Freda (the spirit of love), Simbi (the spirit of rain and magicians), Kouzin Zaka (the spirit of agriculture), and The Marasa, divine twins considered to be the first children of Bondye.
It is by the manipulation of these Supernatural forces that black magic spells like Voodoo doll possession and control over another person are obtained.
