The Voodoo Doll is actually not from the Original African Voodoo. Modern Voodoo became so powerful because it was forged in the fires of survival and included sections from several arts.
The practitioners used any form of magic that would work. The Voodoo Doll is actually from a form of European Magic where it was called a Poppet. That is, Poppet, not Puppet but the word Puppet does come from the word Poppet.
The Poppets are primarily thought to be a powerful magical tool for successful spells based upon a magical law called similarity, which is a sub-law of sympathetic magic. But this belief taken in whole has caused a lot of problems.
Because Voodoo Doll or Poppet Magic can be quite effective, this theory behind why it works was strengthened. But that is only partly correct. It missed a very important piece of understanding that has caused a lot of pain.
When you use a Voodoo Doll or Poppet in your magic you are actually doing 2 things.
1. You are acting with the law of similarity, but that act mostly only strengthens the focus back in your own mind and spirit. Think about it this way: after you get a hair cut and the barber flushes your hair down a toilet, do you drown? Or if a photo of you burns, do you burn? You don't, normally.
A doll you make yourself while thinking about your intended recipient will always be a much more powerful spell casting tool than a doll that you bought and just added some hair or a photo. Sure, I would love to sell you blank dolls,but if I did this I would be shorting your magical education and pushing your spells to failure.
2. Second and more importantly, you are forging a connection with your spirit between your recipient and yourself through the doll when you make the doll, and while focusing on the recipient.
This connection then acts as a conduit for the energy of the spell. Whether you invoke the Loa or another spirit from or just use your own energy, it is like a path through bushes from your intention to your recipient.
This connection between yourself and your recipient is why it is a bad idea to do harmful magic to someone in this way. This is one of the most common ways that voodoo spells backfire. If you are sticking pins on your doll and thinking hateful thoughts at your recipient, some of that energy will come from the doll back to you. In fact, you can test this. Make a doll and do something to it then feel the reaction in yourself. You can even make a doll of yourself and do spells on yourself in this way.
A good use of a Voodoo Doll or Poppet is a protection or feel loved spell. This is when you want the recipient to feel your good feelings at a distance. Another good use of a Poppet or Voodoo Doll is to define and then find someone.
In a spell of this type, you are creating similarity to someone whom you want to find. Your spirit is smart and is connected in ways you cannot imagine. And of course, when you are more advanced the Loa can help you find people.
Here are the steps:
Let's say that you want to find a specific type of person. This could be a love, a sexual encounter, an accountant for your business, a good dog trainer, or someone to play chess with --- just about any type of person. You make a Poppet while thinking of exactly this type of person and you put symbols that have meaning to you into the making of your Poppet.
Key note here: Your Doll will connect you with this person. It has to. It will every single time, I guarantee it. Even if you really do a bad job with it you will still have a connection. The connection will just be very weak. But here is the warning: you can easily pull this person toward you or push him/her away from you. The connection goes both ways.
But you can still test this kind of magic without it. The connection will have a natural pull bias. If you simply make the doll, then do not worry about whether or not it will work.
Once you get it finished, just set it some place where you can see it and ask yourself daily if you will see this person today, but you can't worry about not seeing him/her. If you do,then you will push that person away.
If you start feeling like that then you should destroy the doll and clear the spell. Until you know better how to control the direction of your energy, simply do not put any force into the spell at all. It will tend to automatically pull you towards your recipient simply because you forged the connection.
