People often dismiss the idea of voodoo curses as being mere superstition. Though if the truth be known, they might well still be nervous of the idea. That said, they’ll still insist that curses and hexes don’t exist and can’t harm you.
My voodoo mentor Earl Marlowe (featured in my Voodoo Spellbook) dismissed the naysayers:
Just ’cause you don’t believe in something, don’t mean it ain’t true. Lotta people come to me suffering from curses, some put on ’em recently, others going back generations. They get to wondering why their luck always go bad. Nothing work out for ’em. That’s down to a curse.
It’s the same for me. Hardly a day passes without somebody contacting me for help removing a curse. In some cases, it’s a “generational curse”, one laid on a family member in the past, and it is passed down through the generations.
Typical symptoms include unremitting bad luck, relationships breaking up, unusual physical sensations like the feeling snakes or lizards are slithering through your body, seeing things in your peripheral vision or specs floating across your central vision.
(A list of symptoms associated with being cursed can be found here).
Some people have no idea what to do when they’ve been hit with a curse. They might not even know they’ve been cursed. And so they go to their medical doctor, who will typically refer them to counseling or put them on anti-depressants.
If they mention the possibility they’ve been cursed to their doctor, the medical system has no idea how to deal with it, and the doctor might think the patient is mentally ill. To be fair, some medical doctors refer patients like this to spiritual healers, which is a far more congruous approach, and very likely to get the situation sorted out.
Because, as Earl said, not believing in something doesn’t mean it isn’t true. You can be as skeptical as you like, but if you get nothing but bad luck, it’s time to accept the reality and do something about it.
