Welcome to this week’s Edition of ourWeekly Magazine, today I bring you a Special Edition to illuminate your path on this journey towards enlightenment, this subject matter which we are about to discuss today is a topic which has been wrongly quoted and explained in various groups and blogs (both online and offline), on this day I shall clear all misunderstanding and misguided information which you may have wrongly subscribed to as you journeyed through this path of spiritual enlightenment.
So, I will be exposing to you my dear readers how Juju and Voodoo came into existence in the first place and also what they are used for, I will teach you about the Dedicated Spiritual Alter and Sanctums, most especially to show you why you need one, if really you want to return back to your roots, to learn and understand what an alter really is (even if you think you know what it is). I will, at the same time bring you knowledge on the dedication of a true African “Alter” or what some of you may call “Sanctum” or “Sanctuary”, how it really looks like, and the difference between the African Alters and that of a Juju Shrine!
However, most of you all are yet to understand from your perspective, what an alter really is, or how it is made or activated and also many of you are unaware of how the true African Alters are dedicated or set up through the right procedures and principles which must be in accordance with our Ancestral spiritual laws.
To some of you, you may just feel that setting up a table, and covering it with some sort of white or red cloth with a standing mirror and a few other symbolic items is all you need to make an alter charged and active (from a spiritual point of view). That is alright for a basic alter for simple rites and study, but no! no! It is not yet a complete advanced alter, rather it is just a symbolic alter for meditation, simple rites that don’t require invocation and direct contact and communion with the spirits or deities. In order to transmute such a table arrangement into an active alter, it will require a few other procedures, materials, and the application of certain spiritual principles which you may have never been told.
Meanwhile, at this juncture, I must ask; Do you have an altar at home? I mean you are a practicing Spiritualist, right? Ok, if that is the case then you ought to have an altar, because there has to be something that acts as your medium of contacts with the spirits you honor, and you ought to also have or create a sacred space within your home to be used for two purposes, one, your Alter, and two, as a space for your spiritual practices, meditation and rituals.
So, if truly you are a serious practitioner of Ancient African Spirituality, then you ought to dedicate a space, at the same time, have a medium dedicated and enchanted for the spiritual contact, I will talk more about that later, all I am saying is, as a true practitioner, you have to keep someplace very sacred for such higher energy, that will create consecrated fields of energies around your home, bringing positive spirits closer, most times having a true and dedicated altar makes you spiritually stronger and active.
Those who have sacred home altars are hardly attacked by external forces or spirits because of the sacred energy emanating from their alters charged mediums, and their vicinities where they have consecrated, if it is well dedicated and charged especially with a medium which connects you with your source spirits, or elemental spirits.
Now, someone might want to ask how does an advanced altar looks like, well I once had a student who asked me a similar question, she said “why is the altar of a pure spiritualist and Light worker like myself different from juju shrines and the likes?“.
Ok, that is an obvious question, I mean I have heard it many times, so, I responded to her questions sincerely and as follows: I said and I quote –The juju shrines are dirty and smelly because they kill and offer blood to their spirits, they scatter the bloods on their mediums to charge it up, they leave the killed animals or chicken on the alter and they leave the bloods on their floor, and so it stinks, such shrines encourage dark spirits and all those dark spiritual crafts I mentioned in a previous publication, the pure spirituality does not have need for blood sacrifices or dirty environment, it’s a path to purity of our souls and minds, and so such mindsets must reflect on the outside of the altar as well as the inside, pure spirituality doesn’t focus on using lower spirits to achieve the major aim, but to use practical means and awakening of the conscious mind of the practitioner, connecting them with their elemental spirts and so on”.
Meanwhile, responses such as this will only motivate the mind of the seeker for more inquiries and pop-up questions such as: what is Juju, and what do we practitioners of pure spirituality and Light workers worship? Where does voodoo come in? Etc. Well, all questions will be answered here today in due course, all you need do is read along, and do not rush… Now,talking about juju and voodoo, I think that will bring us to our next discussion…
WHAT IS JUJUAND VOODOO?
Many of you may have heard the words “juju” and “Voodoo” but then do you have an idea about what they really are? Some of the few people I have come across always claim that Voodoo is an updated version of Juju, but then, is that the truth? Is Juju really an outdated version of Voodoo?
Ok, before we proceed further, let me first of all quote from the Dictionary Britannica: Juju, an object that has been deliberately infused with magical powers or the magical power itself; it also can refer to the belief system involving the use of juju. Juju is practiced in West African countries such as Nigeria, Benin, Togo, and Ghana, although its assumptions are shared by most African people. It is neither good nor bad, but it may be used for constructive purposes as well as for nefarious deeds. A monkey’s head is probably the most common juju in West Africa. The word juju is believed to be derived from the French joujou(“plaything”), though some sources claim it is from the Hausa language, meaning “fetish” or “evil spirit.”
So, that is a dictionary definition of Juju, now let’s also find out what they said about Voodoo:
Ok, with these definitions we can now clearly see that yes, truly, they are both not the same thing, and neither of them are an outdated version of the other, or the updated version of the other, they are both two different paths of spirituality!
Now that we know they are two different things, let’s now talk about them from an advanced point of view. We will also talk about altars and shrines, to know if there are differences between them. Therefore, let us proceed at once.
LET’S TALK ABOUT JUJU
So many thousands of years ago, our Ancestors, not fore-fathers, I mean Ancestors, they were really connected with the great Gods and Goddesses, they were nature scientists as they investigates the entire universes finding answers as well as finding new discoveries, yes they of course visited other planets through various means which our modern society is yet to achieve, that is to show you how far they had reached in the path of spirituality and scientific know-how, they did communed and communicated with the Great Goddess who was seen as the Creator of the Universe and of Earth.
They (our Ancestors) made use of certain charged Mediums which was used as a means to connect with their preferred deity or gods, however after some thousands of years later (which is about between 400 – 500 years ago) when our forefathers (the generation that arrived after the era of our ancestors ended) came into existence, they were the ones who deserted the ways of our Ancestors, and choose to betray themselves in the name of divide and conquer fueled by greed, which led to wars after wars, enslavement of the defeated kingdoms and so on.
With such chaos and amongst the people, the foreign races found their lead and loopholes, used the disordered predicaments of the African people as at then to their own advantage, a predicament triggered by the numerous conflicts/wars, thus, gave the foreigners a smooth ride towards the total colonization of the African countries who deemed themselves vulnerable to their oppression and invasion. It was in that circumstance that majority of those ancestral mediums which were used by our Ancestors to commune with pure spirits and deities were all lost to the white people, some intentionally stolen, others trickly bought from corrupt African leaders.
Then during the slave trade era, when things had gone rough and bad, when our lands were taken away with most of our forefathers turned into slaves, some of our forefathers then came to a realization and wanted to begin a reconnection step back to our root to revive our gods and begin to reclaim their rights.
So, they began to seek means to get it done, unfortunately there were no mediums left, therefore in order to do this, a medium had to be imported from other places, the India was one of those places spiritual mediums were imported, however they never knew that the ones they were importing were not the type of medium enchanted to channel communication with the pure spirits, instead they were mediums created and dedicated to channel communion with the lower 4th dimensional deity’s, (the very type few African kingdoms used against themselves during the wars amongst themselves, before the colonization period), that was how Juju mediums were imported into our lands!
Yes, Juju is not a deity or gods, it is a Medium which connects with the gods, unfortunately the Juju Mediums that were imported into Af’raka were not the type our Ancestors used in their era, as already stated in the previous paragraph, they commune only with the 4th dimensional spirits. That explains their blood thirsty nature, the reason why everything about them appears unclean and bloody. Juju practices are nothing more than dark arts practices (left hand side spirituality).
The spirits which the Juju mediums connects with always demands blood sacrifices from its followers, then the mediums in itself also require an active life force emanating from a warm and newly spilled blood in order to be activated and charged enough to connect with the deity or spirits they are communing with. Honestly, majority of those who follow such level of spirituality including their priests do not exactly know the spiritual mechanism behind how their mediums work, or what their deity’s needs those bloods for, all they know is they need to appease them with blood.
The reason why I acquainted on this knowledge more than most of them who practice or follow such path, is because of my exclusive training on the path, for one to be able to control the 4 elements and achieve a very high level of spirituality, one must know the workings of the dark arts (left hand-path) and the right-hand path spirituality.
Some people claim that the Juju mediums instigate justice in the land, but that is not true, Juju and those lower astral spirits they connect with only supports revenge, not justice, both are two different things. If one needs revenge, then that person can use Juju, because this is for those who want to take the law by their hands, this is why Juju practices are full of sad stories of those who send their Juju gods to strike and kill other persons, and things like making them surfer and frustrated, and also intentionally sending illness to their enemies.
With certain Juju mediums, the shaman or priest can connect with some lower 4th dimensional water deities for money rituals which sometimes comes with a prize, for example, if the person is given the success he or she seeks, then the deity (via that Juju) will then take something from the person, the law of exchange, this is why those shamans don’t do this kind of rituals for themselves, they only do it for those who requests for it.
In some cases, the money ritual will begin without any human sacrifices, nonetheless the entity will be given an animal like a goat or cow depending on the type of deity, after that stage is done and the animal sacrifices are given, ones the request made by the person is granted, the deity will collect any of his or her loved ones, most especially the one he or she loves the most becomes the prize for their success.
Now, with this explanation I am sure you have understood that, Juju, is originally a medium of contact with the lower 4th dimensional gods/goddesses, juju mediums only connect with the astral realm (4th dimension), and nothing more, Juju mediums cannot have such higher vibration to connect with deities above the 4th dimension.
Ok, so the question now is; if Juju is a medium, what then is Voodoo? Let us find out! Before please note that, a spirit entity summoned through a juju medium is also known as a Juju spirit.
LET’S DIG ONVOODOO
At this point, you may be wondering what a Voodoo is, and what it is used for, yes, many persons have undoubtedly claimed that Voodoo is an updated Juju, but that is not the truth at all, the truth is that, Voodoo is a Spiritual Practice, call it a branch of Spirituality or, a category, it’s all the same thing, Voodoo is a pattern of spirituality which still follows the normal African traditional spirituality and at the same time it also contains some elements of the Roman Catholic rituals, with influence from witchcraft practices.
However, every Voodoo practitioner who deals with the 4th dimensional entities all have a Juju medium in their shrines, yes a usual Voodoo practitioner do not have shrines with blood thirsty Juju spirits especially when they are an advanced practitioner who deals with the 12th dimensional deities and the 7th dimensional deities, they have a charged medium similar to juju installed in their dedicated altar, though the ones who have shrines are the ones who connects with the 4th dimensional deities only and they are not advanced in their crafts, there is nearly no difference between a Voodoo practitioner and a traditional spiritualist who have a Juju in his or her shrine, just that the voodoo followers know a little more on spirituality than those who follow Juju.
Meanwhile, those Voodoo practitioners who deals with higher dimensional deities all have mediums which I cannot tag as Juju, they are rather referred to as spirit mediums, and many of the Voodoo practitioners at this level, even those who connects with the 5th dimensional entity don’t have any blood thirsty spirits so, they do not offer blood sacrifices. They are also into spiritual practices involving necromancy (invoking the dead and that is if they are not reincarnated yet) and things like psychic reading, be it palm reading or Akashic reading. Then they use Spells, yes Juju worshipers do not know a thing about Spells, Spells are known only by the Voodoo practitioners. Also note that, what they refer to as Voodoo today was mostly parts of the advanced spirituality which our ancestors practiced, I mean the advanced Voodoo practice without the influence of Roman Catholic rituals, and it is originally known and spelt as Vodou.
The ones we call sorcerers are all part of the voodoo family, yes, as you can see, they really know much more than the usual Juju Dibia’s and shamans, and to wrap it up, yes, persons like myself can be considered a Voodoo practitioner because I am a sorcerer who practices the ancient pure spirituality of our ancestors, we connect with the 12th dimensional deities and we work with Spells, Necromancy, Psychic readings and so much more.
I am certain that you have now come to the understanding of what Voodoo really is, and have now seen through this write-up that Juju is a medium used to connect with 4th dimensional deities, and Voodoo is more like a branch of Spirituality that deals with Spells, psychic readings, Invocation and banishing of negative entities, palm readings and many more.

Now, let us talk about Sanctums, altars and shrines, many definitions claim they are same thing, but are they?
ALTERS AND SANCTUMS Vs. SHRINES
Anyone who practices Spirituality needs an Alter, a well prepared and dedicated altar, which must be dedicated first to your Elemental Spirit, before the chief deity or goddess/gods of the path you follow. Now, let’s use water as an example, let us assume you are born of water and fully reconnected through the processes which I offer, then in such situation you need to dedicate your altar to the elemental spirits of your element, then to your personal elemental spirits, and finally, to the ruling God/Deity or Goddess of that element.
A general medium which is connected with your spirit elementals needs to be installed in that altar for communion and protection, this is not the advanced medium meant for the priests and light workers like me, but the type for followers of this spiritual path. The spirit medium is meant for protection and communion so that the practitioner can have a means of devotion in order to keep his altar active and charged.
Let us take another example, if your Element is Earth, you got to do the same thing as explained for the water element, by dedicating your altar to your elemental spirits and its ruling deity which is the Goddess of Sex and Fertility, (the Earth Goddess), and by installing a sacred spirit medium for them too, as explained already.
As a Spiritualist or a practicing Spiritualist, you need an altar, it is very necessary and important, most especially those who are still training to become one, like those registered members of my online mystery classes/community, yes in my monthly spiritual discourses I introduced the altar from the very first month because, it is very much vital, just that, I did not introduce the spirit medium at first until I was sure the student was ready.
Those who delve into Spirituality for the aim of using the powers and the Spirits for their selfish interests towards desires for material success will eventually not be able to set up an altar in their houses, this is because they are scared of what their friends or family would say if they should visit their homes and see an altar or a private spiritually dedicated room in their house. Although, those who are true and genuine seekers of truth who are sincerely on the path towards spirituality will never be scared of public opinions and would always do what is necessary at all times, then with strong focus, patience, practice and attentiveness, they always arrive at their desired destination.
Some persons like myself have a room reserved for my altar, that is for those who can, and though, when I use to live in one room back in the days, I had my altar by the side of my room, many persons hardly come around my room back then, and lots of my so-called friends ran away, you see? that is because, people are afraid of the unknown, but I keep telling them (fake friends) that “you can never know the name of a tree by looking from a distance, in order to know the tree’s name, you need to go closer in order to know what kind of tree it is, otherwise, your guesses may just be wrong”.
Therefore, you should never take your assumptions seriously, rather as an enlightened one (you aspire to be, or you are already), you should try as much as possible to understand and be sure of something accurately before you lay any conclusions, especially the beginners on this path who may not know that the subconscious mind and the spirits intuition are quite similar, sometimes the mind may say something, or make them feel something and they mistake it for their intuition.
The subconscious mind is based on assumption, and sometimes fueled by fear, though such an assumption comes like a message or a feeling, that is why it is very easy to mistake it for an intuition, so, my dear seekers, pay attention.
Ok, for those of you asking to know more about a sanctum, yes, a sanctum can also be considered as an altar, both words mean the same thing, however, when it comes to a shrine, it isn’t, although popular opinion and some dictionary definitions might say otherwise, nonetheless, it isn’t exactly the same, still, it also refers to a sacred space, nevertheless, a shrine still remains different from an altar, and I will tell you why.
LET’S TALK ABOUT SHRINES –
This is much like a sacred place where priests and shamans at that level make contacts with the lower dimensional entities, or spirits, this is a place for sacrifices and blood offerings unlike the altar, and if you notice properly, the skulls of the animals which were given to the Spirits for sacrifices are often kept inside that shrine, you know why? To bring the vibrations of the lower spirits and to reduce the vibrations of the place (shrine) as well as attracts deities at that level.
Like I said, an altar is similar to a shrine, the only difference lies in their purpose, shrines are used to offer sacrifices to deities of the lower fourth dimension, but an altar is not used for such purpose, in an altar, dark entities are invoked into the pentagram and then banished from a person’s life path, and to access the akashic or to consult the spirits, the only similarity between a shrine and an altar is the part concerning spirit consultation.
Beforehand, I understood that the shrines were not compatible with my psychic body, and aura, I knew this because, each time I walk into a shrine, by the time I come out of it, I suddenly start feeling sick, as if I have malaria, I get serious fever and shivers even when I don’t have an actual malaria diagnosed.
Such has been happening to me and others, until a true Light worker made me understand that my vibration and consciousness is too high for such places, thus each time I walk into that place (shrine) I end up reducing my vibration, that is why I feel sick, and again, the kind of vibrations that surrounds such places affects me negatively.
Shrines are used for the sacrifices of animals to lower dimensional entities, just like I have stated above, such a shrine only harbors energies fields at that level, and they cannot be considered positive, and the only deities that is attracted into shrines are 4th dimensional deities and spirits of the lower astral realm, but the ones that are attracted to the altars are pure spirits within and above the 5th dimension, also note that, if you are using the incense stick called 999, please don’t use that incense or its likes, unless you are working at the level of those lower astral spirits.
Many of you do not understand what incenses are used for, you may think it is used for its beautiful fragrance and scents, but that is not true, or maybe yes, to an extent it does fill the atmosphere with sweet perfume, but let’s look a bit deeper on what an Incense stick or dupe really is.
WHAT INSENSE IS BEST FOR YOU
Some of my students usually ask me about incense, they want to know what it is really used for, and how it works. They seek to understand whether its usage is limited to the perfume it emits each time they are on, or if there is something more, something extraordinary and unknown to the outside world. Well, the answer is yes, there is always something more where spirituality or its tools are involved.
Ok, incense is used for raising the frequency of the space where it is placed, the incense raises the alters frequency to attract either pure spirits or dark spirits of the lower astral realm, depending on the type of incense and what they are made for. Its special fragrance comes along with some special herbs from the natural plants used for clearing an atmosphere of negative energies at the same time raising the frequency of the place where it is burned, as it raises the frequency of the place, it becomes easier to invoke a spirit being from the dimension you are connected with, with an incense the room or space becomes consecrated and cleansed of all unwanted energies.
Hence, for the 999 incense which is very popular among the local stores, this incense is used for inviting deities from the lower 4th dimension, yes, this incense does not go further than the 4th dimension, and nothing more.
999 incenses aren’t the only one at that level, they are many, however, I will tell you the best incense to use for pure consecration of your space. 999 incense brings in deities at that level, and they hang around for the person’s invocation or request through proper procedures.
There are good incenses like Sandal wood incense which pierces straight into the 5th dimension and above, just like the original Rose Incense, they do not attract lower 4th dimensional entities, rather they purify the space from such deities.
Now, you know this secret. I hope you now understand that incense is a lot more than just a fragrance.
Lastly, you must understand that incense is used to create sacred energy around a particular place, “sacred” here in this context means that the place is fully charged with spiritual energy either at a 4th dimensional level, or higher, depending on the type of incense.
So, the shrine owners do not use any incense which raises higher energies, those Dibia’s who have shrines and does blood sacrifices, who at the same time use such higher incenses are mostly the ignorant ones who thinks all incenses are the same, yes, they are unaware of the truth.
Now, this is where we draw the line today on this topic! I hope you have learnt a lot today from our online magazine editorials on Ancient African Spirituality.
