WHAT IS A DIVINATION?
Divination is not to be confused with what is popularly known in the West as a "psychic reading." It is much more. In The Mami Wata Vodoun Tradition, consultations are conducted directly with the deity/spirits, and ancestors in assessing your problem and needs. A divination is in essence a spiritual diagnosis, and the information obtained is utilized to establish the options available to you. The information provided is directly related to you and the particular issues that you and the spirits have brought forth. However, before you contact us, please make certain we can be of service to you. Please make sure you read all of the information below.
CAN I REQUEST ANYTHING I WANT?
Contrary to what you may have been conditioned to believe in Hollywood, the Vodoun Religion is an ancestral and healing tradition laced with the same moral and social integrity as any mainstream religions. We are not sorcerers. A good rule of thumb to remember is: if you will not contact your Christian priest, Jewish Rabbi, Muslim Cleric, Swami etc.,to request the following services, we ask that you NOT request them from us:
1. Breaking up marriages to pursue the spouse of another.
2. Killing of anyone because you do not like them.
3. "Cursing” your enemies or anyone for any reason.
4. Causing disharmony, bad fortune or sickness upon anyone for any reason.
5. Forcing someone to love you (unrequited love) for any reason.
6. Forcing someone who obviously does not love you to return.
7. Getting you out of jail for a crime that you know you committed and were found guilty.
8. it is also important to review our Protocol and Respect (link also at end of) page to aid in your preparation process.
