Color Symbolism in Voodoo Dolls

2 years ago

The choice of clothing for Voodoo dolls is not made out of decorative or aesthetic reasons. Each color has a meaning and symbolizes certain things, and it gives certain power to your doll when dressed. If the material of the doll clothing doesn’t have any special meaning, you should at least pay careful attention to the color of the clothing.

    Just be careful the victim is not a witch.Because you might not know what kind of defense magic they have in place.Then it becomes a battle of the witches.

    Can you use multiple colors in making a voodoo doll?

    I used the black colored cloth and made a voodoo. I was so sad,emotionally affected by my ex. So I took one of his stuff, a black candle and a revenge spell just to give him a lesson not to hurt me again. I performed it in the middle of the night at exactly 12 a.m. and I poured down some black candles after chanting the spell. He returned but he told me something happens to him. My spells always works if I wanted too.

    Hi, some years ago my mom bought me a kind of voodoo doll in a market of the street because I like it, its a black doll with white button eyes and like red and yellow strings, I’m not sure if its a voodoo doll but the meaning of the color is really similar of the issues that I and my family have, should I get rid of it? If I should, how?

    17 years ago I began collecting voodoo dolls. I don’t know why, I just took a liking to them. Now so many years later it finally dawned on me how incredibly stupid I was to do such a thing without putting any thought in to what effect they would have on my life. I still love these dolls and I dont want to take them out and bury them but more and more I think it is best. I have a doll from Africa he is carved of wood and his body is made of stuffed burlap that has always wreaked of fire and it has “kilos” written in black ink on the burlap. He is brown hand sewn with thick string and stuffed. I have two all black one man one woman, black material stuffed wi th some kind of grass and they both have real hair the woman is smiling she has a feather skirt and shell jewelry but she holds sharp wooden stakes in her hands. The man has a skirt made.of bark and he has a small leather bag containing tiny bones. he wears bones and he has a scowl on his face. his face is painted white circles around his eyes and red around his.mouth. his hair is gray and he holds sharp stakes in his hands.
    Another is a tall all black doll with a smiling red mouth and tatttered pants and shirt
    pants are green and shirt is stuffed with hay. I named him Jim, after a character in Huckleberry Fin because he looks to be a slave.
    Another is an apple head that is black and sticky with fine white human hair like an old woman. hand sewn one piece bloomers stuffed body and wooden arms and shoes. pins in her back . Jim has pins holding his clothes together. the two black dolls don’t have pins. The male one seems to have an evil eye lately.
    and yes it goes without saying that in my life good has happened only to be followed by terrible things. my life has been filled with so much grief and pain.
    How do i get rid.of the bad luck and will it be gone if I bury the dolls? I feel like Im gonna bury a beloved pet or something what is wrong with me ?

    My cousin’s moved out of my house over the weekend. I found a black gris-gris bag with silver inlay on it on top of her dresser. What does the bag represent? Good or evil? What should I do?

    • Jenn

      Gris-gris bags are neutral, they are used for protection against other spells or curses. The person who makes them selects items that have meaning in that particular case and can wear the bag on their ankle or they can leave it in an honored place in the home. The bag is often sewn shut with blue thread to ward off evil eye.

    This spell guide for Mages gives general information about the different schools of magic available for Mages.

    I should warn, this magic spell might not be appropriate for
    everyone; when people hire me for spell casting, I often make
    them get a tarot reading to ensure that the spell they want is really going to tackle the problems they are having.
    Now that the magic barrier is gone, new obstacles are there for you to get by.
