By your line of reasoning, Western Magick doesn’t work either. Look at all the white people living in trailer parks, and let’s not forget the Paradise known as Appalachia. Socio-economic circumstances and lifestyle choices have nothing to do with whether or not a system of magick is viable.
OP, you may have to stitch this together on your own. What very little I know about Native American tradition, seems to be very much Shamanism. Lots of journeying, meditation, etc. I would start with reading all and any info available about Native American rituals (often referred to as “medicine”), and try to piece it together from there.[/quote]
Yeah I think too often people look at magic two dimansionally around here. I mean Haiti is very poor , it’s the voodoo capitial of the world but in general people get good results with voodoo outside haiti. People on this forum at least just say “well haitis poor so it must not work”
Now lets have a different example America is the most powerful nation in the world but it’s predominantly christian country. Does that mean that by that logic Yaweh is the strongest entity? The thing is though alot of the same people who dismiss the voodoo spirits because of Haiti do the same with Yaweh just because they don’t like him. It’s a purely emotional response from what I can tell and the equivelent of an ostrich hiding his head in a hole because he saw something he took exception to.
To me the deal with Haiti and voodoo is like a math problem where the variables don’t quite add up. The way alot of people react is the equivelent of a mathmatician assuming the problem itself is no good and throwing it in the trash rather then checking his work. I asked the spirits about it and got some interesting reponses about why things are the way they are.
Same with Yaweh, I don’t agree with what Yaweh did to the world, but I admire him as a worthy adversary. Any being who could enslave mankind for over a thousand years isn’t weak, I wanted to know how he did what he did and why. But you guys don’t ask those questions, you just dissmiss anything to do with him because you don’t like him.
Anyway I’ll give a piece of advice here, so you all better listen up because if you want to get anywhere in the long run, this is something you’ll want to adhere to as I do
Know your friends
Know your enemies
Know your world (as well as you are able to anyway)
The dissmissive attitude alot of people around here have of things ignores many of these rules that I try to follow, but hey I’m just some talking head on the internet, so you don’t have to do anything I say.
