Understand Voodoo's underlying ideas and learn to make use of its powers with illustrated instructions and exercises. Use charms to bring good luck to your relationships, finances, and health. Use curses to keep away harmful forces and persons. Make and employ the full range of sacred objects: dolls, candles, incense, ritual clothing, swords, knives, needles and nails, goblets, keys, mirrors, musical instruments, amulets, and masks, for charm or curse symbols to place in your room, car, or clothing. Breathing exercises enable you to enter trances, contact the unconscious and even the dead.
