Hi there ;-) Im Houngan Matt... if you want to get all formal, I am Bozanfè Bon Oungan Daguimin Minfort, a Houngan Asogwe, initiated July of 2009 by Antiola Bo Mambo Daguimin Minfort, in Jacmel, Haiti. I work in a wonderful House here in Boston, MA, also run by Antiola BMDM, otherwise lovingly known as Mambo Maude.

I am a traditionalist and a stickler for detail; I am not the person to ask about how to integrate Vodou practices into your pre-existing path, how to change Vodou to fit your mold, or other ways of disrespecting a tradition that is significantly older than you and works seamlessly for reasons non-initiates are -not supposed- to understand.

That said, if you wish to follow this path the way it was and is being taught to me, I will gladly answer what questions I can (given both that I know the answer and that I am allowed to give it out; there's a great deal that doesnt fit into either of those boxes). As long as you can treat my tradition with respect and honor, and walk it the way it is meant to be walked, I will gladly and freely help you on your way.

Ok, so Ive already (in 2 days of being back here) had to remove 2 people from my friends list; please, I dont want my email inbox filled to the brim with invites to every other group under the sun. If you've got something to tell me, tell me; if you've taken the time to get to know me, then and only then will I know your invitations actually come from a place of knowing me enough to know my interests.



Not trying to be bitchy, just kinda trying to keep common courtesy in mind... but… Continue

Hello! Someone told me to seek you out. I was given a gift by Papa Legba in an open circle (or at least this is the interpretation that many people I've asked have come to) and I don't know the first thing about Vodou. I don't want to disrespect Papa Legba after the gift he gave me, so I'd really like to know your opinion and advice, if you have time to talk. Thank you so much for your time.

Since when does the law work in any particular way? If a burglar trips over my lawn chair trying to rob my house he can sue me and win.

You didn't come across as harsh, just narrow minded. How do you know its not real? and getting things patented is always a good idea. Any pharmacist can make a pill but only one will get the largest payout, and that one is the first to get a patent. Its all a matter of opinion. Like, how do I know your beliefs arent just a bunch of hocus pocus? I really don't. Its just ignorant to diss any sort of belief that isnt backed up by science. For example: Saying ghosts are or arent real could be true or false so let people believe. Saying that you can't get pregnant from holding hands is good because we have scientific proof that no genetic material is exchanged during the act. (and yes i used to know someone who thought that holding hands could knock someone up)

I am fully aware of the diversity of Paganism. And I am aware of the distinction between Occult and Pagan... my complaints are not directed at Occultists, they are directed at Pagans who use the "occult" label. If you are a true occultist, then this blog is NOT directed at you. Do you reccomend that I add a disclaimer?

Obviously I am a non-occultist Pagan, but you can bet your butt there is plenty in my own spiritual practice that I would never share with anyone... not even with a coven or with "initiates," because I am an eclectic in a path of one. But losing the "occult" word for those who identify foremost as Pagans does not mean making everything public. It means not being perceived as a freak when you tell people that you are Pagan.

You misunderstand my point very much. I would work on holding my assumptions, if I were you, and ask more questions before firing.

And we ALL have the right to voice our opinions.

Do you know anything about St.Alejo? Because I am having trouble finding sources about him in english other than he banishes evil.
