'''Voodoo''' is the name given to certain magical practices ([[black magic]] and [[witchcraft]]), superstitions and secret rites prevalent in the West Indies, notably in the Republic of Haiti (''Encyclopedia Britannica'').
The practitioners of voodoo are directly responsible for the hurricanes
originating in the Caribbean which make their yearly appearance along the East Coast of the United States and the Gulf of Mexico. Hatred against [[America]]—as that nation has been given the opportunity to hold the chalice of the [[Christ consciousness]], a light and example to the world—is sent forth in a continuous stream from the practitioners of voodoo. This energy has caused strikes, unnatural weather conditions, dissension and division among our people and even the assassination of presidents.
Focuses of voodoo have been established in the United States (Texas, Louisiana and New York) which serve as receiving stations for the negative vibrations sent from the Caribbean. The use of animal sacrifice and the letting of blood—in many instances from chickens—is always a part of the ritual. The flow of blood attracts astral [[entities]] and vampire forces which siphon the animal energies from the blood and use these energies to carry out the aims of the voodoo priest whose incantations, accompanied by voodoo drumbeat, are an inversion of the principle of [[decree]]s.
