How to properly dispose
of Cursed Dolls & Objects?
On a Saturday, place the doll (or object) in a clean white
cloth, dig a hole in the earth, far away from your home (on
Hallowed ground if possible), place the cloth wrapped dolls in
the hole and burn them. Then, cover the ashes which remain with
Holy Water or May Water and cover the hole over with the dirt.
The earth will recycle that negative energy very quickly and
turn it into positively and Blessings. When you return home
afterwards, bathe very well, adding some Holy Water or May Water
to your bath.
Hello, I am under the impression that bad energy from one or
more individuals is affecting me. I have been plagued by
nightmares for quite some time. Moreover, a known enemy of mine
continuously appears in my dreams. What should I do?
Thanks for your inquiry - sounds like you've been going through
a really rough time! After reading your whole situation, a book
comes to mind that I feel you should read -- 3 books actually.

one group who belongs to no one - the Angels.
I am a police officer. Recently we were called to a home
where we found a lace cross with a green cross sewn into it. On
the cross was a short fat purple candle, a tall thin purple
candle, and a short fat pink candle. A note was left with the
cross which cited: II Samuel 1:16 and a line about the house
'last name, different last name' then I Kings 2:32-33 and I
Kings 2:36-46. At the top and bottom of the note were the words
RETURNED TO SENDER the bottom line with this statement in it was
written upside down, and in red ink. Further more, the note also
implicated that the person who received it was involved in the
death of a man which had been ruled a suicide. Could you
possibly tell me anything about what this means
Thanks for your inquiry. First of all, without me seeing all of
the items you described firsthand, it's difficult to make a
judgment call on this matter. Every practitioner, especially in
our neck of the woods (Louisiana), does things a bit differently
than the next and it's not always easy to decipher the
'messages' left from a ritual like this. However, I can tell you
what the colors and symbols traditionally mean in the Voodoo
practiced most commonly in our region.
First of all, since Catholicism and Voodoo are very much
intertwined and have been since the time of the slave trade, the
cross is a symbol used in both religions. In Voodoo, it has the
dual meaning of representing the Voodoo Loa (Spirit), Papa Legba,
the Guardian of the Crossroads. The color green is used to
represent (most commonly) money, sometimes fertility and also,
Ogun, the Voodoo Loa of Metal and Iron. In today's world, it
also is sometimes used to represent envy.
From 'The Magic Candle' by Charmaine Dey:
Green is the color of the Venus planetary influence, and also of
the P_desc1ive meadows of the Earth. It therefore symbolizes
Nature, and material gain, Fertility, Abundance, Good Fortune,
Cooperation, Generosity, Good Health, and Renewal.
Green candles are burned to promote balance and harmony in any
Pink is a color which generates affection, self-generosity,
selflessness. It is an excellent choice for matters of domestic,
or 'true' love, as it symbolizes Love, Honor, Togetherness,
Gentleness, and Spiritual fulfillment.
Pink candles may be burned for some healings, especially of the
Purple is the color of Power, Royalty, Dignity, Wisdom,
Idealism, Psychic manifestation and Spirit contact. Therefore,
it is used when great Spiritual Power is necessary. Purple is
effectively used against Black Magic, demonic possession, and
for Spiritual or Psychic healing. It is also used to throw up a
veil of Spiritual protection.
Basically, Officer, if you read all of the listed bible
passages, and review the objects at the ritual site, along with
the other words in the note, it sounds as though someone is
trying to protect and defend the Spirit of the now departed and
surround it with good energy and at the same time, do a reversal
to the alleged culprit of some wrong doing so that all the
negativity the 'bad person' sent out comes back on them instead
of harming another one of the 'righteous.' It's basically an
attempt to speed up the 'culprit's' Karma, so that 'they get
what's comin' to ‘em' quickly, right here and now, in this life.
Anyway, with the information you've given me, that's all I can
make out of it. Hope it helps more than confuses!
Comment: This information you sent me is most helpful. Thank you
for your time.
Sincerely, Officer Keith
We have a family member that practices voodoo. Lately, I have
been having dreams of two chicken feet dangling above my head
tied with a black ribbon. Could you possibly tell me what this
symbolizes in Voodoo? If it is something negative, what should I
do? Thank you for your time and help.
Well, you couldn't have chosen a more over interpreted symbol to
ask about! Chicken feet have been used to represent so many
different things over time. Its meanings are also dependent on
region. Chicken feet have meant everything from keeping your
mouth shut to good luck! I'm wondering why you haven't asked
your family member about your vision. Are you afraid they've
sent you something and that you're getting a bad omen? If not,
and they're someone you trust, sounds like they'd be a great
choice to let you know what chicken feet represent in your
region. If I had that particular vision, it would depend on many
things; but I'd be looking out for a breakup or big change of
some kind. Hope this helps!
(5) I have found a pigs head on a grave with fruit around it and
a small pile of cigars tied with a red ribbon. What does this
mean and is it Voodoo?
Hi! Thanks so much for your inquiry. Many unknown factors can
come into play here that would affect my answer. If the grave is
fresh, if the date of birth or death related to the date the
items were left there. It definitely sounds like an offering
though, one that a relative or friend made to their beloved
Ancestor, or to the Loa/Orisha on their behalf. There are some
"set offerings" that immediately ring a bell & are evocative of
their purpose & intended recipient, such as a favorite fruit of
a particular Loa/Orisha. If you would've written to say that a
bottle of good rum, a bowl of starlight mints & 3 cigars were
offered, I'd say it was probably offered to Papa Legba, the
Guardian of the crossroads, to help the Ancestor cross over --
particularly if the grave was fresh. If there were 9 plums or
eggplants & a glass of red wine, I'd say, sounds like an
offering to Oya, etc., etc., etc.
Because Voodoo & it's sister religions are in a constant state
of evolution, due in large part to their practitioners daily,
direct communication with Spirit, new offerings & rituals are
created all the time. I can remember being told, after a cowrie
shell divination, that our Great Ancestor Mam'zelle Marie Laveau
wished to be offered a beef heart in a special sauce I was to
prepare. That wasn't a "set offering," it was what Mam'zelle
wanted on that particular occasion. If asked today, something
completely different could be requested, or nothing at all. God,
the Ancestors, the Loa/Orisha and Benevolent Forces are always
there for us to offer protection, guidance, lessons, support and
love. Needless to say, when the Spirits ask their children for a
specific offering, we gladly and, with love, accommodate them.
Was this the offering of a Voodoo Practitioner, a
Santero, or simply a loving family member with a deep connection
to Spirit & their Ancestors? Only the person who left the gifts
knows for sure. Hope this helps!
