Voodoo <Obeah>

One of my grand mother use to take my brother and I to her Voodoo
church on a sunday morning, This was a happy church for us there was alot of singing and dancing.
Looking back now I am glad our Granny took us to her church.

There is a law on the Island from 1760 it is

The Jamaica,s Obeah Legislation.
1760:In response to a major slave rebellion the colonial goverment
outlaws Obeah for the first time in the Caribbean...

With the Act to Remedy the Evils arising from Irregolar Assemblies of Slaves , defining Obeah as The wicked Art of Negroes
pretending to have Communications with the Devil and other evil spirits.....doh doh doh

After reading this I had a good laugh...

Walk good every one....dancing dancing dancing

PS. Some days ago I was hoping for rain now we have rain <NICE>

Yes Mimi we have alot of Obeah on the Island only we dont talk about it. And over here only with some Africans can one talk about Voodoo...,

Yes and No Mimi
There are many churches on the Island and thay dont like Voodoo

Yet Obeah is apart of our folklore...

How often do you go back to Jamaica? Do you still have any relatives there? How many years have you left Jamaica?

Smiles.....my best friend is WICCAN.....when we first met and started educating one another about how we understand our faiths....and she was telling me about spells and incantations.....I laughed!.....and said...or sweetie....you don't have to explain that to me. I understand fully. It's no different than praying and having faith that my prayers are answered. Just don't ever get angry we me and cast a spell because I've already prayed as King David and asked God to avenge me of what my enemies do against me and have sat back and watched the destruction they wanted on y happen to them. We busted out laughing and got up and made us another drink...cheers
Yes Mimi I try to go back once in three years for six weeks or so
There is only a brother ,and some very good friends
left the Island more than 30 years ago.
Yes Theresa I dont use spells or cast them
these things have a way of coming back to the person who have cast a spell or use them........

Fly glad you got your rain.... you should live in Ireland where it rains most of the time...Voodoo, I have a healthy respect for it.
I love Drums, Drumming and the Rythm, the sound, it puts me in a different dimension, like meditation, I get very high and happy on it. I have respect for Voodoo. yay
