Love Spells & Voodoo Spells Performed for You!
A little more about Love Spells, Voodoo Spells, Voodoo Spell Rituals and Vodou Rituals performed on your behalf at Erzulie’s Authentic Voodoo! The Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals performed on your behalf offered on Erzulie’s website are quick Vodou rituals to affect specific changes in your life. Our showcased Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals are for normal situations: if your situation is very complicated, long-term interference, or involve spiritual attacks and other outside interferences, our Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals will help, but will probably takes several areas of focus to undo all the long-term damage. Other more intense and lengthier Custom Voodoo Spells are available for such complicated cases – please schedule a consultation to review the details of your case if you feel your situation falls into this category. For those that are working within the normal bell-curve of life’s challenges within your relationship or situation, these Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals are a perfect solution!
Let us address the number one question we receive about our Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals: TIME FRAMES! How long for Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals to manifest results and the answer is: it depends upon the complexity of your personal situation and the amount of damage or interference within your relationship or situation and how truthful you are about your situation initially – every situation is unique and therefore, timing always varies. We have found however, results for most Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Spell Rituals typically manifest within 6-8 weeks if within the normal bell-curve of circumstances. If it is long-term, chaotic, endless drama, and years of injury or interferences, it could take months to align along with a lot of various spiritual work. Rarely is a situation or relationship fixed overnight, please remember, your relationship or situation did not deteriorate overnight either – that took time to dissolve and misalign with all parties involved participating in the deterioration. You must give all Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals time to align and re-balance, please have faith and patience during the rituals.
Anyone who tries to claim their Love Spells, Voodoo Spells, Witchcraft Spells or Magic Spells can fix your relationship or situation overnight, or guarantee results within 48 hours or any other outlandish claim is lying and preying upon your emotional grief and desperation – period. Please bear that in mind no matter how badly you need to hear those words, or desperately want to believe all will be resolved in a day – it won’t and to think so is unrealistic. Love Spells, Magic Spells, Voodoo Spells, and Ritual work simply does not operate within human concepts of instant gratification, quick fix and magic beans; it is a process of untangling, realigning, healing, evolving and maneuvering the energies at play to affect these changes for the best possible outcomes.
Voodoo Spells, Love Spells and Spiritual rituals ALWAYS HELPS any situation and well worth the time and energy! Whether it be to push you through a major transformation for growth, evolve your consciousness & awareness, or move you forward from something, or someone which no longer serves the greater good in your life, release needless attachments, trauma, destructive behaviors, and negativity you are clinging to, or placing you on a more beneficial path: all Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Spiritual work produce enormous benefit! The Divine Voodoo Spirits (or any Deity for that matter) know so much more than we could ever, so you must trust their intercession and timing on matters to insure the most beneficial alignment for you.
When our highly experienced, initiated Priests or Priestesses at Erzulie’s Authentic Voodoo perform your Love Spells, Voodoo Spells, Voodoo Rituals or any Custom Voodoo rituals, they are petitioning your requests/desires/prayers in a formal ritual on your behalf based upon the details and materials you provide. Our practitioners work with the appropriate Lwa’s (Divine Vodou spirits) to intercede and bring forth the outcome you are seeking, using the sacred tools and powerful ritual techniques, as passed down in the Vodou traditions for thousands of years. Our clients have experienced fantastic results – please read our testimonials page to learn about their experiences – and those that had the fastest results, are those that put forth the most efforts into their Love Spells, Voodoo Spells, and Voodoo Ritual. Here are a few things you can do to support your Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Ritual work:
- Upon ordering any Voodoo Spells or Love Spells, including our Voodoo Spell Kits performed for you, please allow 3 to 5 days upon receipt of your order and ritual forms for us to prep and start your ritual.
- It is always best to order all Love Spells and Voodoo Spells together or as closely as possible together for optimal alignment!
- Do not obsess over your Love Spells or Voodoo Spells – this creates more negative energy around you, this includes stalking their social media or having your friends stalk their social media. You have to let go of any toxic behaviors.
- Ritual work takes work. Period. Your life doesn’t become fixed overnight or in a week. It requires time, diligence, faith and understanding of spiritual principles and truths listed here.
- Use the recommended Voodoo Spells, Love Spells or Voodoo Ritual items as suggested – this enhances and reinforces all the spiritual energy for the desired outcome.
- Do not harass ~stalk ~ berate ~ impose~ interrogate ~ challenge ~ emotionally terrorize ~ check up on ~ intercept emails or phone calls ~ or behave in any other obsessive way towards your hearts desire or their friends – this truly reverses all the ritual work performed on your behalf – accept the space between you both for now.
- Learn detachment and remain calm during your Love Spells and Voodoo Spells – I know, it’s very hard when you are so hurt and unsure, but releasing that anxiety and obsessive thinking over your ex will open up more paths of communication between you both – TRUST ME – detaching shifts the energy in your favor – this includes obsessive, hysterical or chronic messages for attention to any practitioners you are working with. Spiritual workers are there to help with the spiritual side of your problem/issues, you are responsible for YOU and you need to look inward, not to the external for your issues as well; especially if you are experiencing these types of emotional imbalances, fixation or histrionics to an extreme or unhealthy degree.
- For those who obsessively get psychic readings on the same topic over and over with various types of readers; STOP! At least during your ritual time frames. That will cause tons of external interference and undermine the ritual work. You have no idea what energies certain people tap into, and you could be opening contrary or undermining spiritual doors, heavy pressure and chaos. It is also an issue of spiritual respect and safety as well. WE REITERATE: PLEASE REMAIN DETACHED!
- Spiritual practitioners do not provide life coaching services with ritual services; they are separate services. Please use common sense and your own judgment when interacting with those involved in your relationship as we do not to tell you how to react, behave, respond or advise you on your daily life choices or communications. If you need more life coaching guidance, we offer consultations for those purposes. Please order one to obtain the time necessary for an expert to delve into your additional questions.
- Accountability, responsibility and looking inward are needed when working with spirit. Finger pointing, blaming or dwelling in victimization, irrationality or hostility will only impede your spiritual progress. Ask yourself: where can you take responsibility and make much needed changes in your world? Where can you release any negative, oppressive energies? What emotional reactions, habits or toxic behavior can you release? We all play a starring role in our hardships, you must embrace self awareness to change your situation. Change your thinking = change your life.
- Your environment plays a key role in blockages. Surrounding yourself with toxic, addicted, undermining, defeating and negative people or habits will absolutely impede success. You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. They influence you more than you know. Choose wisely. Toxic spirits of sorrow, negativity, discouragement and failure are transferable!
- Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals work on the spiritual plane: As Above So Below! Whatever has manifested here started up there. You must also work on your own physical alignment and emotional well being – all THREE planes should be as cleansed and balanced as possible for optimum results.
- Always perform some sort of spiritual cleansing, banishing bath ritual, healing ritual or releasing ritual first – this removes blockages internally and externally and gives the Divine space to bring you your desires.
- Spirit is not a vending machine, they don’t deliver upon demand. Once you order a ritual, we petition their intercession within the formal ceremonial orthodoxy of the tradition, which brings the most success, however, spirit aligns as is possible in your situation and always in your best interest. This is a truth you must accept as there are no guarantees how Spirit will align or if they will align as YOU think they should!
- Nobody can control the divine, nor can one dictate or demand how spirits manifest or align your requests. Your prayers are always answered and sometimes that answer is NO! There are some requests that may not serve your highest good or part of your life plan. Another truth you must accept!
- Often things can get seem to get worse before they get better! When spirit is clearing out what no longer serves you, to manifest your petition, be prepared to experience much needed change in your life. This is for your awareness, self reflections, moving obstacles, making space or redirecting you. While it can feel uncomfortable and frustrating at times, many great changes are preceded by chaos.
- Success and alignment requires changes on this realm. If non stop blockages pre and post rituals, turn inward, make those necessary energetic cuts. Spirit will always have you repeat what you don’t repair. Always. There are no shortcuts to becoming balanced, whole and faith based.
- If you wish to update us on progress and alignment, touch base around 6-8 weeks after your ritual is performed. We will not have any gauge of your work until some time after your Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals are performed. Daily emails or phone calls during your ritual work are strongly discouraged as this takes our time and energy away from your ceremony and if excessive, belligerent or abusive in time, they will not be responded to as we cannot nor do not encourage such unhealthy fixations.
- If you have also performed your own Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Spell Kits as recommended, use the remaining sacred tools after your Love Spells and Voodoo Spells are completed to focus on your petition.
- Be prepared for the root causes of the problem to surface during your Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals; often, it is NEVER what you think. Likewise, be prepared to accept and cope with any new information on the causes of the breakdown or problems – spirit will always reveal the truth!
- It is not uncommon for other Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Voodoo Rituals to be needed as the layers of your situation are revealed: remember there is always a ritual solution for new information or altered circumstances ~ many times you need to have several areas addressed.
- If you are suffering emotionally and your mind just cannot stop thinking about your loved one or situation, keep performing cleansing and healing rituals to lift and remove that negativity – sometimes you may have to release in stages and work through the pain and anxiety. Just think how fantastic you will feel once it’s fully removed from your Ashé (life force).
- Know you are loved and truly worthy of healthy, respectful and reciprocal love from others – KNOW THIS like you know nothing else.
- Do not get caught in the negative grief cycle, this lowers your vibration and blocks all ritual work from manifesting, instead, acknowledge you are feeling destroyed at the moment, and then refuse to accept it – this works wonders with Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Spiritual work.
- Faith is required and a choice one must make EVERY DAY. Are you praying, praising spirit, focused on your connection to spirit? If not, get in that habit each day, it moves mountains. Remember, you are a face of the Divine as they are a face of you – you are empowered by everything – let your Love Spells and Voodoo Spells empower you!
- Finally, FAITH, PATIENCE & TIME move mountains with Love Spells, Voodoo Spells and Magic Spells – learn them, live them and accept them – you will find this expedites your outcome!
- Our clients have had terrific results with our Voodoo Spells & Love Spells and have left glowing feedback on the outcome and results of how rituals and spirit changed their lives for the better.

Do Love Spells, Voodoo Spells, & Rituals Really Work?
Yes they do – they really do! First, this is a religion, one of the world’s oldest religions, dating back thousands of years to Africa, specifically, the west coast of Africa. This is a monotheistic religion, we believe in one supreme creator (Bon Dieu or Gran Maitre) and while God is always present, God is not so involved in your every day secular trauma, trials and tribulations. In fact, God is perceived as a touch “disconnected” from human strife as God’s primary concerns are more on the Cosmic, Karmic, Evolving the Soul and Consciousness areas.
Most of the very life defining experiences you endure are essentially, part of your divine plan, karmically designed to evolve your soul, no matter how bitter or agonizing some of these situations may be. However, God hasn’t left you stranded – I promise, God has created amazing Spirits who intervene in very specific areas of human need and these divine messengers and helpers are collectively known as the Lwa, Loas, Orishas, Nkisis, Invisibles or Mysteries along with the divine intervention from all of our ancestors, those we have known and those we have never known, who have come long before us, guiding us throughout our journey here on Earth. It is through the help of these amazing spiritual entities and our beloved ancestors that much can be altered, avoided, enhanced and improved in your life on every level. This is why reverence, honor and representations of these powerful spiritual energies are always displayed in the homes and work places of Voodoo Practitioners.
This of course, is a brief and cursory overview of a very complex, multi-faceted spiritual belief system, but this ancient religion would not have survived thousands years without being empowering (learn more about the Voodoo Love Spells & Rituals in our academic Articles Section too!). Simply stated, Voudou absolutely works, not only the magical aspect, but also to keep you connected to spirit, grounded, protected and enlightened. The magical aspect of the religion is very effective in changing a very difficult situation, repairing love relationships, protecting you from ill-will or harmful people, healing you from a past traumas, opening up doors of opportunity in your life, putting you on your correct path, just to name a few out the endless areas the Lwa (Loa) assist you.
Most situations can be changed, altered or greatly improved, providing it does not alter certain karmic lessons you have to learn or endure here on Earth. For an example, in the case of bringing a lover back, if it is your lover’s karma to be with someone else who is to provide certain lessons instead of you, then no, the Lwa (Loas) will not interfere or alter that Karmic lesson. Again, this is a very simplistic example on this topic for conceptual purposes only.
Most often, people want to know “when will I get everything I want?” “When will this work?” or variations of questions along those lines. While we are very sympathetic to those in extremely difficult, painful and challenging situations and do understand the anxiety behind their questions, the fact of the matter is: there is no simple, magic bullet to fix everything.
As I’m sure we can all agree, humans are usually their worst enemy and often do not want to make the difficult choices and sacrifices to position their lives in a better or more positive environment. We are not so good at change are we? Time frames for improvement or resolution on any matter hinge greatly on your willingness to recognize your contributions to the problem, your poor choices or poor behavioral habits and, your willingness to move past these impediments. Many of the other issues the Lwa, (Loas) will intervene and help maneuver out of your way or in your favor. Typically, ritual results range between 80-90% success rates, however, they do not just hand you your wish, (if only it were that easy) you must put a lot of work, energy, focus and gratitude into your request. Often, ritual results can take a great deal of time as well; the Lwa work in their own time frame, however, most see movement in their lives, results and often, a resolution within 20-60 days after completion of the ritual or spiritual work. In my experience, your commitment to your spiritual work, evolution and faith expedites your resolution on any situation.
I’ve Been Cursed or Hexed, What Can I Do?
I often receive emails from people absolutely convinced they are the victim of evil spiritual work, cursing, hexing and this is why nothing works out in their lives. Although, there are cases of highly skilled practitioners who can send very dark, negative and harmful spirits towards you to impede your life, we have found most often, you are your very own “demon.” It is much easier to blame the “invisible” versus your poor choices and lack of personal responsibility in the matter. That is not to say people are not infected by dark strangleholds which contribute to self-destructive behaviors but when you live in a reckless manner, surrounded by low-vibrational energies, you also open the door to those dark and toxic energies to gain a foothold.
Rarely, is it a “demon” that makes you spend all of your money and not pay the mortgage until you are homeless, forces you to not find a job even though you desperately need the income, drink excessively, abuse drugs with the grocery money, hurt, harm or abuse your partner until they leave you, then stalk them because you can’t understand why they want nothing to do with you, place your desperate need for any mate ahead of your children to the point your innocent children are in danger by this mate and taken away from you, which you cannot understand why, etc. I can name millions of poor choices that led many people to their demise and none of which, were caused by any spiritual entity or hexing ritual directly, although many are indeed under dark spiritual energies due to their life choices; energies and forces affecting your life are symbiotic. When you open the door to dark spirits, they will remain in your life exacerbating the misery and chaos.
These really are the fault of the humans and their lack of personal responsibility, discipline and awareness of their behavior towards others and we are all guilty of this. I bring these few examples to illustrate how often we are our own worst enemy. To blame spirits for your dangerous choices is just another example of your refusal to accept responsibility in any devastating outcome and usually indicative as to how you live your life – blameless and the victim. For those who perpetually need to be a victim, you will chronically manifest terrible situations to remain the perpetual victim.
I am often emailed by people who are panicked because they are told by “qualified mystics” on psychic hotlines or at some carnival, they are cursed, hexed or will have extreme bad luck if they do not pay these “spiritual masters” thousands of dollars to lift this curse. First, this psychologically creates the reality of being cursed, second, this gives some people an excuse for their horrible choices, and third, this is oldest scam in the book: terrorize people to bilk them out of their money by planting fears in their psyche.
With that being said, we do recognize negative spiritual energies, hexes, curses and horrible ritual work directed at others to destroy their lives. Now, for those who truly have serious situations of work being done against them, where everything is unraveling, severe illnesses, severe accidents, unforeseen obstacles broad-siding you and causing your life to spiral out of control when their were previous balanced, and are seeking our assistance to resolve your situation, we require the scheduling of a spiritual consultation to determine what forces are at work before recommending any spiritual work or remedies.
Ok folks, this is for all the millions of calls I get per day in the store with the same story. “I gave so and so thousands of dollars for something or other, and now I cannot locate them, they will not return my call, they will not email me back, I think I’ve been scammed….”
I always ask: who is this person (or company) and what were the details of the situation? I ask this out of respect for my colleagues as well; often legitimate practitioners get blamed when their client didn’t win the lotto of something equally as ridiculous, so out of respect for those amazing practitioners available in the world, I always give them the benefit of the doubt as many people often have unreasonable expectations to begin with NO MATTER how many times they are told the reality of spiritual work and possible outcomes. And also, WHAT KIND of work was done for you? Was it the RIGHT KIND OF RITUALS – this is where an expert consultation comes in VERY HANDY! It is well worth speaking to one of our expert Vodou Practitioners, Mambos and Hougans to see what is really needed to fix this situation.
This DOES NOT MEAN you have been scammed just because “Johnny married another woman after all” or you “didn’t win the Nobel Prize” or they couldn’t make your “destiny different then what YOU wanted.” Any legitimate practitioner will disclose the potential outcomes and the realities of situations that cannot be altered. If you choose not to listen and go ahead with someone’s spell ritual anyway, do not blame Voodoo for no results, you got results, the results were just not what YOU wanted – please read the Does Voodoo Work Section for more explanation.
I always say, your prayers and petitions to the spirits are ALWAYS answered; sometimes the answer is “No!”
For those who have been truly scammed and ripped off, my heart goes out to you; it is disgraceful and embarrassing for every spiritual worker to hear of yet another scumbag has preyed on the vulnerable. So many practitioners and spiritual workers I personally know are so devout and dedicated to serving and have provided incredible assistance to their clients for years. Here’s how you can determine if you are working with a shady practitioner or spiritual organization.
- They have no legitimate method of which to receive funds for their items, such as a merchant account or credit card capability, no phone number, no business address, street address, store front, or live humans to speak/chat/message with . If they are operating using only anonymous digital payments, Western Union or money orders only, that should raise a red flag. Normally, legitimate businesses undergo much scrutiny, credit checks, background checks, operating license verification and financial review before a bank will issue them a merchant account, which certainly increases their credibility and gives you the consumer, an avenue to locate the company should a dispute arise.
- They address themselves as “The Amazing This and That” “The Most Powerful This and That” “The Voodoo Queen or King of This and That” and are STILL not accessible in any way other than the cloak of the internet with no names, addresses, and contact information.
- They GUARANTEE the outcome work! I GUARANTEE this is a SCAM – “send me thousands and I GUARANTEE Johnny will return” for example – that is ridiculous to even consider as they ARE NOT GOD and cannot possibly know what is going on with Johnny’s Karma or life path, or what YOUR spirits may want for you? Ritual work always helps but sometimes it helps to move you past a toxic and harmful situation.
- They demand, force, insist, terrorize you into sending money immediately even though they have NOT conducted any consultation or divination to even determine what is going on in your situation!
- Their initial consultation, should you even obtain one, always tells you this situation can be repaired, reconciled or fixed in amazingly, 24 – 72 hours (or whatever idiotic time frame) – for sure, just send them money and all will be perfect. Yeah, right! Often times it is for your higher good to move past a dark cycle and any credible practitioners will advise you of that and never sell you false hope.
- Ritual work ALWAYS requires thousands of dollars for them to perform – this is simply NOT TRUE!!!! While some rituals can for sure, often, something subtle like a good cleansing and banishing ritual can move mountains for you.
- They offer no verification on their credentials, experience, colleagues, reputation, explanation on their products or services, no photos of the items on their websites, no details on the actual ritual work required and in what phases, time frames, ingredients, techniques and crafting, etc. Spiritual products should ALWAYS be handcrafted, find out where and how they make theirs before you buy them. Further, if you go with their products and services, they should disclose every bit of expense, elements needed, educate you on the rituals, disclose the divination results and offerings to which Lwa or Spirits upfront in a fixed cost before purchasing any custom or spiritual rituals, fetish, spell kit, etc. Have them disclose the details before buying – like you would ANY PRODUCT!
- USE YOUR BRAINS NOT YOUR EMOTIONS: Find out how or observe HOW the purported most powerful guru LIVES, their environment, their friends, and their stability. If they are living in unstable conditions and cannot maintain the most basic elements of continuity; for example: cannot keep their phone connected, cannot seem to pay their bills, cannot seem to live a balanced life, seem embittered and nasty about everyone, are always the victim of spiritual attacks, trash other practitioners behind their backs to get your business, live in abject poverty or filth although claim to be able to make you millions, or cannot seem to maintain a stable existence on any level, how on Earth are they going to HELP YOU with anything. They can’t even manage their own lives. Who cares what they say to about their powers, purported knowledge, levels of initiations: the first sign of a strong spiritual worker is THE QUALITY OF THEIR OWN LIVES!!!!!! How are they living? Are they mindful, disciplined, honorable, hard workers, truthful, responsible, accountable and respectful to themselves, their environment and most importantly, Spirit? FIND OUT FIRST!!!!! Many purported Spiritual Master “talk the talk” , look good on paper, tell you everything you want to hear, but can they TRULY “walk the walk” of maintaining a spiritual life & serving above all else?
