Why am I interested in voodoo?

i would like to know why i have been so interested in vodoo for some years

I can’t explain your personal interest in voodoo, but it could have many origins, not the least of which is that it is a fascinating religion and magical practice.

You may have ties to Haiti and the voudon in a previous life, or you may simply find the religion fascinating. Voodoo has its basis in the native religions of Africa and in the Catholic faith and is fairly unique in its practices.

The religion uses paralytic drugs to create zombie-like effects, has a myriad of loa (gods) to worship, and in many ways plays to the most base of human needs: sex. A great deal of the faith is based around the use of mind-altering drugs and it appeals to most people because they do not take the time to understand the true depth of faith and the meanings behind the loa. Most people see the zombies and sex and alcohol and drugs and assume that the religion is about decadence and self-indulgence.

If you are interested in voudon, I would suggest that you begin with a trip to the library and look up the hsitory of Voodoo and Haiti. Read about the various loa and the practice of the religion. See if soem particular portion of the history speaks to you or if it is just a passing interest, based on a fascinating culture that is very different from what most people are accustomed to.
