Marie Laveau, also spelled Laveaux, (born in New Orleans, Louisiana) was a Louisiana Creole practitioner of Voodoo, and known as the Vodoo queen of New Orleans. Laveau’s powers reportedly included healing the sick, extending altruistic gifts to the poor, and overseeing spiritual rites. A powerful priestess, Laveau reportedly had a familial background in African spirituality. She was drawn to religion after the death of her mother. Laveau underwent the tutelage of Dr. John Bayou, a well-known Senegalese conjurer (root worker). She did not take long to dominate the culture and society of Voodoo in New Orleans. As a queen for several decades, Laveau was mother to many. People sought her advice for marital affairs, domestic disputes, judicial issues, childbearing, finances, health, and good luck. Laveau would in turn counsel her practitioners by supplying them with advice or with protective spiritual objects such as candles, powder, and an assortment of other items mixed together to create a gris-gris or ju-ju.
Living Spirit Dolls
Spirit Dolls are created for the purpose of giving a helping spirit a body to inhabit and set its intention to produce the desired magickal outcome. These spirits are also called “magickal servitors”, not because they are enslaved, but because they are brought into existence to achieve a purpose as set by the Bruja. They are made for all purposes, such as drawing a lover, gaining wealth, protection from negative forces, healing, and much more.
There have been a lot of horror movies made based on this magickal practice. Those movies are based on ignorance driven by Hollywood’s perception of Vodou and Witchcraft. My dolls are made with love and light and will be inhabited by an elemental spirit that will work for you to achieve your goal. This form of magic originates from the Congo people in Africa who came to the Americas during the transatlantic slave trade.
It is important to remember that the doll is inhabited by a living spirit. Offerings of flowers, incense, cologne, or liquor may be given to a doll to feed its energy one a week. Spirits need love and light to stay healthy and active, never neglect taking care of your doll or the spirit may become sad or upset and will leave. It might leave after it accomplishes the mission set forth by the Bruja. This a spirit companion that is created for you to suit your magickal needs. When you choose the doll you want to buy I will “prepare her” or “fix” her by invoking a spirit to live in her. She will be filled with all the proper ingredients to accomplish the spirit’s task. If you create a good relationship with the spirit and keep her taken care of the spirit might become a guardian spirit to you and stay with you and your family for generations.
