Voodou Priests And Doctors Are On The Frontline Of Haiti’s Mental Health Care

In Haiti, a key way to improve mental healthcare is to work with religious leaders from Catholic, Protestant and Voodou faiths, says the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto.

Haiti’s voodoo religion heavily influences how mental illness is perceived and treated. For centuries Haitians have turned to voodoo priests for help.

Both male “houngan” priests and female “manbo” priestesses perform ceremonies and sacrificial rituals to treat people.

“Voodoo heals the mind, soul and body. The soul is what we are, which controls everything, all our actions and mind,” Max Beauvoir, the “Ati” or supreme leader of Haitian voodoo, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

The World Of Vodou: Exhibit Brings To Life A Highly-Misunderstood Religion

Spirit Bottles

Haitian Vodou keeps alive the theology and spiritual practices of West African cultures. Africans first came to Haiti as slaves in the 16th century. Their deeply rooted beliefs combined with those of Indigenous peoples already living in the Caribbean, and also combined with elements of Christianity. Because Vodou helped galvanize slaves to revolt at the end of the 18th century, Vodou is inextricably tied up with Haiti’s history of abolition and its establishment of an independent nation.

Infil-traitor Alert for U.S. Based African Groups

Beware the Herd

Beware the Herd

I’ve noticed that lately, too many groups are moving in the direction of “white” people being a virus or devils or alien hybrids or genetically engineered whatever created in a lab who need to be exterminated. This is a red flag, and should alert anyone with half a brain that their group has been infiltrated by government/corporate spies. It is a trap they have been using for years to undermine African and European cultural focus groups.

They prey on your fears and insecurities, misinterpret science and history, and turn you into goons willing to kill your fellow citizens and engage in other over-the-top criminal activities. If you want to stay out of the trap, then know the red flags.

1. Promoting any kind of extermination, ethnic cleansing, or killing people because of their color.

2. Promoting the use of violence against children, child marriage, child betrothal, or sexual initiations/marriage before the legal age of consent.

3. Promoting the overthrow of government by un-democratic means, or the assassination of a government official.

4. Promoting armed robberies, theft, or other things that are sure to get you thrown into prison.

The way they justify this is that if you’re enough of a dumb sheep to fall into the trap, then you deserve what you get for it.

Eyes on the prize folks. There is a way to wage war, and being a dumbass is not it.

How to Sniff Out a Government/Corporate Infiltrator/Informer

Be aware that an infiltrator or informer may not be consciously aware that this is what they are.  Often, there is one who is actually in the employ of the government or an associated corporate entity, and a network of moles who report back to this person.  It used to be that the paid spy would try to get him/herself into a leadership position or next to the leader, but nowadays, having one or more moles is enough.

Sometimes the mole is used to merely gather information, but sometimes they are planted there to put forward ideas or philosophies that will surely destroy or neutralize the “harm” potential of the group.  By “harm” I mean harm to the status quo or agents and structures thereof.

If they can convince you to become an obvious and public threat to your neighbors, then you cease to be a threat to the status quo.  You also play into the hands of the mainstream media, who uses African Americans as the “boogie man” with which to scare other African and European Americans into obedience.  They need to stay obedient and run to the government for protection from you, rather than you being the protective warriors to whom everyone runs for protection from the government.

Certain ideas can infect and weaken your movement, and the government spy or mole will be the most vehement supporters of these ideas.  You know it’s from the government/corporate script for certain, when it doesn’t stop at just one thing, and follows a pattern.  There are a few patterns, but they all end up in a shootout with the government, which you will lose because they have bigger guns; or mass arrests because your leaders are molesting your children in the name of some “god”.

Don’t feel singled out in this as an African.  Mormon off-shoots, militia groups, Asatru, Odinist, and others have been targeted, infiltrated, and neutralized.  All of their former members in the know, can tell you the way things developed.  They somehow managed to get away with certain things for years, but then someone convinces them to take that little step further, and they are suddenly caught and find out that the police/government knows everything they’ve been up to from the beginning.

The U.S. government apparently views some kids being sexually abused, and dissenters being murdered as a small price to pay to get rid of a nuisance in the long run.  Be aware.

If someone in your group starts to promote weakening ideas, do a background check on them.  This will tell you if they are just mentally sick, or if they are an informer.Many informers come out of the military, police, government work, or prison.  They are recruited and groomed in those, and sometimes they are recruited because they did something wrong.  If you encounter someone who always seems to have time, money, and resources, but they don’t have a job that justifies their spending, and didn’t inherit some money, then they are probably an informer.

Another sign of an informer is that they use methods of speech, promotion, and press that are behind the times, or came from a psyops “textbook”.  Someone with their finger on the pulse of the people is going with the flow.  They are posting information in the stream of living their lives and their purpose.  The informer must have structure and statistics.

The informer cannot relax.  You won’t see them in a casual situation, actually serving people in a way that would make them tired or possibly lose control of anything except maybe their temper.  They show anger and agitation when someone disagrees with them, and can’t accept that there would be a different perspective.  This is because they are trained to get people to obey, or will suffer some penalty if they don’t get people to fall in line with their professed beliefs.

The government and corporations have done exhaustive research on cults, megalomania, social dynamics, and manipulation tactics.  They are willing to use this against you or allow them to be used on you, with their assistance, in order to keep the money rolling in the direction they want it to.

Just be aware.

Karuhimbi

When the militia encircled her enclosure, Karuhimbi covered her hands in herbs that would cause skin irritation, according to The New Times. She touched the killers – who became fearful because they believed she was cursing them – and then retreated inside her house. She grabbed whatever she could find and shook it, claiming that it was the sound of the spirits becoming angry. “I hid those people seriously. I’d prepare some magic, and when the killers came, I’d tell them I would kill them. I told them no Tutsis had come to my house – that no one comes in my house – while all the time they were all inside.”

Kalamazoo business owner says her connection to Voodoo led to discrimination from a business partner | Fox17

After getting that phone call, Best called the company to figure out what went wrong. She was told that the move was made by a rogue employee acting on personal beliefs, “all of them assuring me that they do not make phone calls like that,” she said. “That it must have been a scam or a prank phone call.”

But weeks later, her business hit a snag. Customers called informing her that credit card purchases were not going through.

Witches Declare War on Boko Haram

“Witches and Wizards in Nigeria are deeply worried by what is going on in the country especially Boko Haram insurgency. As stakeholders in the Nigerian project, we can no

longer afford to fold our hands while the nation burns. Enough is enough”.

While saying that the Boko Haram issue was one of the key issues discussed at their meeting, Iboi said it was witches and wizards from Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states that urged the association to convene the emergency meeting.

Since then, snakes and bees have been forcing many Boko Haram out of hiding in the forests.  Apparently, Oshun still doesn’t want any radical Muslims in west Africa.

Mother blames obeah for death of daughter – News – JamaicaObserver.com

DLANCO McFarlane had been ill for the last six months.

Her relatives tried everything to get her better after she gave birth to a bouncing baby girl. But, despite repeated trips to the hospital and ‘prayer warriors’ converging on her mother’s home in Red Hills, St Andrew, her condition worsened.

via Mother blames obeah for death of daughter – News – JamaicaObserver.com.

Christians prayed over her and failed to heal her, and the Obeah man gave her actual herbal medicine, but he is somehow to blame???

Be careful out there.  Remember the saying that he who does the work gets the blame.  Be very careful who you serve.  Always do divination first, and if it says no, then don’t do it no matter how nice they seem.  If the “bad eye” is shown in their intentions, then send them back to the Christians.  They will probably then blame you for not helping them, but they can’t take rejection to court.
