why cant i work with loas like baron samedi and Azazel … Azazel is helping me in my love life and in my magic my beliefs are mostly voodoo and things related to it i call myself a witch but i could be classified as a electric witch … someone said on here i cant work with both at the same time may i have a answer more then " they will not work together" or "dont mix religions "
Ask the spirits themselves if they can work together. They will let you know.
The only thing other people can offer you is their own experience. If someone says that the spirits won’t work together, but has never actually tried it, it is kind of like a fat person telling you how to lose weight successfully.
In my opinion, there is a big difference between working with the Loa and being part of the religion of Voudon. There are priests (houngan) and sorcerers (bokor) from my understanding, and the sorcerers don’t practice the religious ceremonies. If I am wrong, someone more knowledgeable please correct me.
Azazel doesn’t have a religion, but is simply mentioned in some book, so I would simply check with the spirits themselves to know for sure.
from books their ceremonies bring the loas into their bodies and into them they will act like a child old man ( papa legba) or climb a tree and hisss ( damballah wedo ) but thas ) books andt i practice alone so i find it hard to contact some of the loas and thank you ill ask them one by one
I going to reveal a little known secret to you. My parents are from Haiti making me Haitian American and one half of my family work with the Loa. I personally don’t practice Vodun as I like working with demons only (Goetia demons), and Angels. But a lot of Haitian people work with demons from the Goetia and the Red Grimiore with Lucifuge Rofocal as well as Azazael.
Most western folks don’t know this, but I promise you this is the true.
Just make sure you don’t keep the energy of the demon and the Loa in the same room better yet a different location for each of them would be perfect.
But the Vodun experts on this forum can better guide you then me but yes you can work with both but there is a certain way to do it.
Most my craft is in my bedroom or my Sanctuary with is just Rocks a witch circle and a wooden arch bottles links some tress a cross like papa Legba’s and a fire pit up the hill I have a spider web a glass bottle and fire pit
Both I use a lot unless it’s candle or incense because of wind and the incense would be smelled from afar giving me away to my friends or Neighbors who would bug me …
I could try to store the energy in quartzite Crystal’s my area has slot of them … would that work
Some spirits definitely have personality conflict. Some will work together with them anyway, others won’t. However from personal experience the Loa don’t really care if you work with demons. It’s more of the religion and dogma of some of the traditions. I’ve personally experienced Belial and Papa Legba come to me in the same vision. They seemed to not only work well together, both having a gatekeeper function, but they seemed chummy.
So I can work with loas I’ve work with and Azazel really now this will amp my work and help me thank you
Hi! I’m curious…now that it has been a few months…what have your results been? I was curious about this same thing…working with demons while working with other pantheons (namely for me the orisha) I would say though, that I agree with the person who said let the spirits tell you.
The guy had toxic traits and was interfering with my life with his drama he is an ex but I have found this Hecate Lilith and Azazel have permanent alters in my room and have been helping me and teaching me; I have paused my work and learning on vodoun but I have a mambo I talk to who I will be learning from ;
Wow! Well I’m glad you were able to get it all figured out! No need for toxicity! And I’m glad you are having success…let us know the update if you can once you start back up with Vodoun! I’d be interested to know more!
Have you tried setting up 2 different altars in two separate rooms? This way you can have one altar dedicated to each pantheon and can be working two separate styles of magick at the same time? Thats what I would do.
Yes if my roommate allows but I’d probably make it saints so family does not give me more hate
Have you thought about moving the voodoun side into an empty closet?
Many bokor use demons such as astaroth and many jinns.
I know I do. lol
I mean good idea I have a pile of animal bones and glass in there with clothes I’ll keep that in mind
