Q
Would you be willing to answer questions about your personal religious beliefs? I've noticed a lot of Orisha/voodoo represented in your tumbler and I would like to have a slightly better personal understanding of how believers of these deities and practices live in relation to the world around them.

Based on your terminology and use of the word ‘Voodoo’ your question will not be answered.

 Alice Walker (Writer of the color purple )- On her book Now is the time to open up your heart.

She got the inspiration for the name of the book from the A south American indigenous Icaros (song) that the Shaman who guided her through her Ayahuasca  journey sang to her.  

In this she talks about the fact that the ‘Elder feminine is suppressed in western culture’ and that we are all missing the grandmother voice.  She emphasizes the fact that during the middle ages in Europe they killed the elder grandmother voice. Culminating in the destruction of many of the indigenous religions in Europe resulting in the murder of 9 million ‘Witches’ over a 500 year period. Suppressing that voice & future healers. This same conglomeration of Patriarchal ethnic groups then went on to spread this inaccuracy around the world. 

I remember watching a Frantz Fanon documentary and someone interviewed said “We live in a strongly patriarchal world with a perplexed sexist form of masculinity which prevails.”  Food for thought

She also talks about how she feels the young (Particularly in indigenous communities)  are loosing their way to drugs through them trying to have a transcendent experience without proper guidance.  

Watch the full video, I really recommend it.

NB. on a side note I do not agree with her saying that Africa is poor that is inaccurate.
