THE HAITIAN ZOMBIE
A zombie is an animated corpse raised by magical means, such as witchcraft. The term is often figuratively applied to describe a
hypnotised person bereft of consciousness and self-awareness, yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli.
In African voodoo, a dead person can be revived by a voodoo master, or sorcerer. Zombiees remain under the control of the voodoo master since they have no will of their own. "Zombi" is also another name of the Vodou snake loa Damballah Wedo, of Niger–Congo origin; it is akin to the Kikongo wordnzambi, which means "god". There also exists the zombie astral, which is a part of the human
soul that is captured by a voodoo master and used to enhance the his power. The zombie astral is typically kept inside a bottle which the voodoo Master can sell to clients for luck, healing or business success. after a time God will take the soul back and so the zombie is a temporary spiritual entity. It should be known that feeding a zombie salt will make it return to the grave.
zombies is present in almost all African cultures. In some communities a dead person can be turned into a zombie by a small child. the spell can be broken by a powerful Voodoo Master
witches can equally turn a person into a zombie by killing and possessing the victim's body in order to force it into slave labour. After rail lines were built to transport migrant workers, stories emerged about "witch trains". These trains appeared ordinary, but were staffed by zombie workers controlled by a witch. The trains would abduct a person boarding at night, and the person would then either be turned into a zombie worker, or beaten and thrown from the train a distance away from the original location.
take a look at the voodoo doll being offered for sale today on the Internet. a cloth stuffed with wool. what can this possibly do? our voodoo doll is not a cloth stuffed with wool. the traditional voodoo doll called 'voodoo pupper' is a wood carved in the image of a victim. the image must be the exact replica of the victim in a miniature form. once the carving is complete, a pin will be fabricated in one of the holiest voodoo temples on the planet. then the image is animated with something containing the DNA of the victim. either hairs, saliva, blood or a used cloth. as soon as this has been achieved, the pin will be inserted into the image at a time when Saturn and Jupiter are situated at an angle called in voodoo ' angle of attack' relative to the Sun. once the pin goes in, the victim becomes a puppet or pupper in the hands of the voodoo priest. be it a run away lover, a court case or revenge, once we can get the hair, saliva or blood of the person, he or she is finished. the person becomes clay to be molded as it pleases us. it is the same thing with creating a Zombie. we do not create a Zombie using elements from a fish to cause hallucinations.
