With less than month before we leave for New Orleans to for tranformation services, I get this piece in the mail. It was a gift from the owner of a Voodoo shop that I met the previous time I visited New Orleans. Her name is Kalista, she is a voodoo priestess, and we have maintained contact ever since we met. it was frienship at first sight!! Especially since the shop she owns is emanating with magical energies, about to burst at its seams!
The package merely said, "To Steve with love. Blessings, Kalista." When I first opened the package, which wasn't very big at all, I had no idea what was inside of it. She hadn't made any mention of sending me any packages. The last time I had remembered speaking to her was a few weeks prior when she told me that she was making headway on a secret that would proove to be extremely significant in the world of those who practice the art of Voodoo.
When I opened the package us, there was the necklace that you see as the picture for this description. Although, it was a beautiful necklace, I was a bit confused. I mean, it is made out of 100% natural, polished rocks that have been shaped into smooth little balls. My immediate response was to touch the necklace because is is so colorful and inviting. That's when I first realized that there was something extremely different about this necklace. Something paralyzed my arm like a zap of electricty and wouldn't let me move. My mind was taken to a place that I was totoally unfamiliar with, but my psychic ability told me that I had time-traveled to past Haiti.
I was looking around and couldn't, for the life of me, figure out what could've been so special about this place. Then I stumbled upon a chest, which I opened and inside were all kinds of rocks and stones, in raw and rough form, but in a very colorful array. I recognized them at once as the stones on my necklace. I could feel the power emanating at once and knew immediately that these gems must have been a treasure left behind by some sort of pirate. Afterall, it was the Caribbean.
I didn't have much time to ponder, because I was then tranferred to a place in time during the slave trade in Haiti. The rocks were no longer in the chest. Rather they were arrange on a larger rocker encircled by five rocks, in teh pattern of a pentagram, of the same proportion. I watched as what I immediately recognized as voodoo practicioners perform some kind of ritual involving the sacrifice and blood letting of a hog. Then, I saw as the blood was drained over the rocks and the mini altar that had been set in place. The rocks were then taken an washed at Seau D'eau waterfall, which has long been a magical have of voodoo-- but not just normal voodoo-- a branch of voodoo known as Petro.
Petro is a branch of voodoo, the rites of which have a Caribbean origin, instead of an African undertone. It originated in Haiti during a period of slavery-- or shall I say that's when the magical rocks were found and the powers were manifested to slaves who transformd these powers into a vast network of voodoo energies. Either way, the magic is powerful and pure. Where the original powers of the rocks came from is as good a guess as any, I suppose.
I was then flashed to a period in time, where I was able to watch as Marie Leveau accessed these same rocks to perform her Voodoo magic. As I watched, I figured out that these rocks weren't a tool in her incredible magic, but they were the basis of her magic, without which, she would not have had any magic abilities whatsoever. I have thereby, confirmed that Marie Leveau's TRUE powers are Petro Voodoo, not African Rada Voodoo as previously thought! It is a more powerful, shall we say "spicier" version, of Voodoo. The Loas are more energetically charged and are more magically active than ever before. There is a closer bond between humans and their divinities. It's like classic voodoo on steroids; so, who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Pfftt... this piece is proof!
These rocks have been taken from the Marie Laveau collection. Like I said they have been cut, sanded, polished and made to look real pretty. They are colorful and as lively as the magic that you will be inherting with this piece! This will make you a very strong and forceful practioner of Voodoo magic. SOme people try it, just don't get it, and give up. You will have no problems as all the magic that you ever endeavor will be assured to be as powerful as the magic of Laveau, herself... as if she was the one actually casting the spell, or undergoing the ritual, of stabbing the doll. Whatever it is you want to do with your Voodoo magic, ALL is possible with these powerful, POWERFUL Voodoo rocks!
