Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A working guide on how to find love and sexual fulfillment by working with the andlt;Iandgt;lwaandlt;/Iandgt;, the spirits of Haitian Vodou andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; The first book on wanga (love magic) by an actual Vodou initiate andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; Provides spells and spirit work for many different problems associated with affairs of the heart andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; Spells included are detailed and easy to follow andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Haitian Vodou, like other folk traditions, is an eminently practical craft. Vodou practitioners see their relationship with the andlt;Iandgt;lwaandlt;/Iandgt;--the spirits honored in Haitian Vodou--as mutually beneficial rather than one-sided. In return for sincere offerings, the lwa are happy to provide protection and support in dealing with lifeandrsquo;s problems--which more often than not concern love. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;In andlt;Iandgt;Vodou Love Magicandlt;/Iandgt;, Kenaz Filan details the myriad aspects of love and sex governed by the different lwa and explains what services each can provide in attaining fulfilling relationships--and who will likely offer the best wisdom for your needs. If you are having trouble meeting people, Legbaandrsquo;s Opening the Door spell can resolve this difficulty. If you wish more fire in a relationship, then you should work with the warrior spirit Papa Ogou. Filan presents easy-to-follow instructions for numerous love spells and also reveals how the lwa offer counsel for dealing with ending relationships, toxic behavior patterns like codependency, or romantic triangles. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Iandgt;Vodou Love Magicandlt;/Iandgt; does not provide a magic genie who will fulfill every wish, but it does offer access to a team of spirits who can help transform dreams into realities.

Review:

"Readers tired of the usual dating avenues-websites, bars, reality television-may want to check out this compilation of Hatian Vodou love spells. Author Filan warns away skeptics and the easily discouraged; the longtime Hatian Vodou practitioner (and managing editor of newWitch magazine) advises leaving yourself open to 'a quiet miracle,' and good-old fashioned practice, to 'overcome the hurdle of disbelief.' Filan introduces readers to a number of Iwa, the everyday spirits of the vodouist, explaining how and for what reason to tap into their powers. Summoning methods vary from Iwa to Iwa, as do spell casting techniques: summoning 'the Iwa of beauty and luxury,' Freda, involves sprinkling water on the ground; Papa Ogou, Iwa of strength and honesty, requires a machete and rum. Those looking more for a love's lusty approximation will want to break out their seven-day candle and Nightmare Before Christmas doll before turning directly to the chapter on Ghede, the 'bringer of booty calls.' Aside from some interesting cultural history, Filan's text is largely dry and instructive, not a bad thing given many spells' inconvenient steps. Though long in tradition, even Filan admits these time-consuming methods shouldn't replace 'reconnecting with the people around you'; to borrow from another tradition, Iwa often help those who help themselves."
