Vodou Money Magic

The Way to Prosperity through the Blessings of the Lwa

A working guide on how to achieve financial success by working with the lwa, the spirits of Haitian Vodou

• Provides spells and spirit work for job hunting, financial success, and career advancement

• Spells included are detailed and easy to follow--learn to Heat Up Your Business with Ghede or Peruse the Want Ads with Legba

Haitian Vodou is a very practical and scientific craft: either you please the spirits and get results or you don’t--often for good reason. The lwa--the spirits honored in Haitian Vodou--know that it is far more useful to find out exactly what is causing your money woes rather than receiving a quick fix.

In Vodou Money Magic, Kenaz Filan offers a path to long-lasting and pervasive changes in your financial situation. Filan describes the lwa who govern financial matters and explains what services each can provide in attaining wealth or finding a fulfilling career--and who will likely offer the best wisdom for your needs. If you are having trouble finding a job, Legba’s Perusing the Want Ads spell can resolve this difficulty. If you wish to curb impulse spending, then you should work with the Great Serpent Damballah. If you need emergency financial assistance, Mama Danto is there to help. Filan presents easy-to-follow instructions for numerous financial spells and also reveals how the lwa offer counsel for family burdens, getting along with coworkers, and planning your future.

Kenaz Filan (Houngan Coquille du Mer) was initiated in Société la Belle Venus in March 2003 after 10 years of solitary service to the lwa. Filan is the author of The Haitian Vodou Handbook, Vodou Love Magic, and Vodou Money Magic and coauthor of Drawing Down the Spirits. A frequent contributor to PanGaia, Planet Magazine, and Widdershins, Filan is the former managing editor of newWitch magazine and lives in Short Hills, New Jersey.

“An informative and authentic look at not only Vodou traditions but also their practices and philosophy regarding prosperity and fortune. With it, you can apply Vodou money magic to your own life, even if you are not a Vodou practitioner.”

– Christopher Penczak, author of The Witch’s Coin and The Mystic Foundation

“Kenaz Filan’s new book is a gold rush of information both about the worlds of the spirits and practical finances. Kenaz skillfully and solidly bridges the great divide drawn by other authors, between the spiritual and the material, with money magic!”

– Tannin Schwartzstein, coauthor of The Urban Primitive: Paganism in the Concrete Jungle

Vodou Money Magic is like a car jack: if you aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty, it will help you get the job done. The author explains what steps to take, but you have to do the work yourself.”

– Elizabeth Barrette, author of Composing Magic: How to Create Magical Spells, Rituals, Blessings, Cha

"Once again, Kenaz Filan has written a book that is at once fascinating and immensely practical. Vodou Money Magic combines a clear understanding of the tradition's history, with thorough explanations of the appropriate way to approach and propitiate each Lwa, all with the goal of living better. I particularly appreciated the 'Curb Impulse Spending with Damballah' ritual in chapter 8. Filan, extremely well versed in both the spiritual and esoteric aspects of Vodou, doesn't ever once neglect the third part of that metaphysical equation: our own focus and work in the every-day world. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in learning about Vodou, or in improving their financial picture."

– Galina Krasskova, author of Exploring the Northern Tradition and Runes: Theory and Practice, March 2

"Customers who are looking for a book of spells to help them increase their material resources will not be disappointed. . . . The book also offers an amazing history of Vodou and other African-based traditions, presented in the context of historical/poliltical events in Haiti. The chapter notes hold a wealth of research information and the resource section at the end is substantial and discriminating."

– Anna Jedrziewski, reviewer, New Age Retailer, April 2010

"What an interesting book! Bold, opinionated, and practical. Kenaz Filan writes from experience . . ."

– Witches & Pagans, September 2010

“Informative and authentic, Vodou traditions, practices and philosophy regarding prosperity and fortune are explored. Highly informative, both about the worlds of the spirits and practical finances, Kenaz effectively shows the connection and relevance of both these worlds to each other.”

– Frater Puck, Behutet, February 2011
