How to Do Voodoo: The Tools You Will Need

In our How to Do Voodoo ebook, you will learn a lot about this esoteric branch of magic which first emerged from Africa. There are many things that voodoo magic is uniquely suited for. For example, you can use it for protection, self-defense, and to attract desired situations into your life. You can even use two voodoo dolls and a wand in a ritual to stop two gossiping people from talking to each other or do the reverse and bring two people who refuse to speak with each other back into conversation.

Voodoo dolls are what most people think of when they think about how to do voodoo. The use of voodoo dolls has become well-known in popular culture mostly through movies, books and television. Through these mediums, voodoo has quite often been portrayed as a dark, mysterious, and often morbid tradition. Actually, voodoo is simply a West African religion, also known as Vodun, Vodoun, Vodou, Vudu, and Voudou. The practices include much more than the use of dolls. They also involve circle rituals, dancing, singing, drumming, and ancestor worship. A voodoo doll is simply a simulacrum or an object that is a likeness of something. In voodoo or simulacra magic you can affect a person without being in physical contact with them by choosing an object that resembles the person and making a psychic connection between the object and the person. The Law of Similarity dictates that the greater the likeness, the greater the psychic connection, which make photographs a good choice in many instances.

Besides simulacra, there are other tools needed when learning how to do voodoo. Here is a list for the beginning practitioner.
  • firebowl with sage, pine resin, charcoal burner disks and paper or wooden matches.
  • Sun Yellow Candle
  • Wisdom and Protection candles (taper candles of Sun Yellow, white or sky blue color)
  • keyed Wand (Air Tool)
  • keyed Athame (Fire Tool)
  • keyed Chalice (Water Tool)
  • keyed Plate or Pantacle (Earth Tool)
  • keyed and well-trained pendulum
  • aluminum foil and scotch tape (for protective voodoo magic)
  • Book of Shadows (to record all your voodoo actions and spells, in case you need to take them back down)
Many of these tools you will be able to find easily or get online and are not expensive. Others you will make yourself such as with the Wand. The How To Do Voodoo ebook covers all you need to know about gathering these tools and/or making and keying them if you don't already have them, so no worries there. Learning how to do voodoo or simulacra magic can give you a variety of useful techniques and magical skills to add to your treasure chest of magical knowledge. As always, enjoy the magic!

  1. I thought that Voodoo was a religion more than a practice. Is it possible to work with the Lwa without serving the Lwa?

  2. Hi Melissa,
    Voodoo is a religion, but many of the practices are the same as simulacra magic and can be incorporated into a magical practice. Some practitioners prefer to call it simulacra magic for the reason that they only use those techniques and don't practice the religious aspects. We just wanted to point out that the basis of those techniques comes from the voodoo practice. Make sense?
