Dark Forces, Evil Spirits, Dark Energies & Spirits of the Dead: Voodoo Concepts

Explore the mysterious world of Dark Forces, Evil Spirits, Dark Energies and the Spirits of the Dead from the Voodoo perspective.  Erzulie’s Voodoo created this page to help provide a resource for those struggling to understand why certain people and their energies have such a devastating effect on their lives.  And hopefully confirm, everything you suspect about that person is true and no, you are not going mad.

In the Vodou, we very much believe that dark, evil forces walk amongst us.  There are evil, dangerous, low-vibrational entities that appear in the human form and, monsters are real.  These energies often consist of the Spirits of the Dead, Spirits of Sorrow, Spirits of Suffering.  These dark forces and evil spirits bring to our world all the negative and toxic aspects within their energetic realm: addiction, rage, hate, deception, cruelty, abuse, jealousy, narcissism, manipulation, exploitation, covetousness, betrayal and destruction.

Sadly, many that are drawn to higher vibrational, loving souls are disguised as those who are supposed to love and protect you the most.  A parent, a lover, a spouse, our closest friends and co-workers.  Nothing is sacred when these empty, soulless, consumptive vessels want what you have.

We deal with the devastating effects these creatures have in our clients’ lives when spiritually connected to these dark, destructive and inhumane energies every day at Erzulie’s Voodoo.  If you feel you have encountered such a situation or need help in understanding what they are and, breaking free from their grip, or healing from their carnage, our experts offer outstanding spiritual counseling and powerful rituals for banishing those toxic connections to start the recovery process.
