These amazing mystical arts have a strong connection within the world of Magic. Both are linked in the fact they contain special items and specific ceremonies to send out energies to bring forth a set result. Voodoo also uses similar things to create a "doll" of a person that Spell Energies are targeted for. The Voodoo doll, in theory, contains the Magic Energies used within the ritual.
Most of the time, Voodoo Dolls are used in Revenge Spells and Revenge Spell Castings. Revenge Spells or Justice Spell Castings are very difficult for novice Spells Spell casters and are far more dangerous to cast. The use of Voodoo dolls increases this risk. It is advised that you get special training and instructions when experimenting with such endeavors.
Magic Spell Casting requires practice and time. To be effective at casting magic spells you need to have the actual Spell with instructions and follow them to the letter. If the Spell is a beginner spell that is easy to cast, it will most likely be safe but still use caution and common sense when trying to cast magic spells or if you try and make a real Voodoo doll.
Voodoo dates back thousands of years and originate in Africa. Around 2000 years ago, the Voodoo doll was used to bring forth prosperity and good fortune. Farmers hired medicine women and men and their Magic Spell Casting abilities to bring forth a healthy crop. They used a Voodoo doll of the farmer to do this. This was the beginning and the start of something VERY powerful that would grow like a wildfire.
As with any advent, man kind found a way to use Magic Spell Casting and Voodoo dolls for evil and greed. It was quickly found out the Voodoo doll could be used to attract negative energies and very bad luck onto a person with a very simple ritual. This art spread very fast and was quickly outlawed. People found in possession of a Voodoo doll or anything remotely looking like a voodoo doll were put to death in Africa during this time period.
Current Spell Casters still believe that Voodoo dolls from this time period and location still contain a amazing amount of Magic power that does not fade with time. This opinion varies from Spell Caster to Spell Caster. These days, real Voodoo dolls that contain true magic Spell energies are very hard to find. Most VooDoo Dolls you see online are mainly novelty items and are for fun. Rest assured, the art of REAL Magic Spell Casting and Voodoo dolls is quite real and alive today.
