I am writing this story for the people who think I have no idea what an evil spirit acts like when I wrote about my Angel Lucifer.
Obeah is what we call Voodoo in Trinidad and Tobago. This form of magic can be good or evil. It consists of summoning evil spirits to gain something, to hurt people for revenge, to make women barren, to ruin someone's life, to make someone fall in love with them (I should say lust because love is not forced) and so on.
One of the deadliest spirits you can summon through the use of Obeah from my experience is The Moko Jumbie and The Soucouyant. These are both French terms because we were once ruled by the French.
Moko Jumbie is a French term for giant spirit. This spirit can also dance.
Soucouyant is French for vampire. It is not like the vampires seen on TV. This one appears in the form of a ball of fire.
When I was at the age of eleven before I met Lucifer and before I came a Christian, my sister and I were invited to our neighbor's birthday party. At the party there was the daughter of a notorious obeah man (A term used to refer to as a sorcerer in Trinidad and Tobago) that was known in the area where we lived.
After the party, we kids went outside to play with star lights (sticks that light up and sparkle when lit). The girl whose father was the obeah man burnt my sister with it. And well I was eleven at the time so a fight ensued until the adults broke it up, beat us for being naughty and sent us home.
Later that night my mom kept coming into my room while I was resting. I sensed that she was disturbed about something but she did not know what it was. At three in the morning I heard chanting in my head calling out demons to attack me. I also heard a sound in my head. It sounded like a language I could not understood. But I sensed that it was not good. The chanting continued for an hour and stopped as soon as the rooster crowed.
I told my parents but my dad did not believe in spirits despite that he is a Muslim. My mother guessed that it was the obeah man who tried to hurt me for fighting with his daughter. But when we went outside of our home we saw ashes in front of our home. I had pains all over my body. Well you know how kids are; I went and told everyone in the neighborhood what happened.
The next night at exactly three o'clock I heard a strange sound like someone dancing over my home. When I looked outside I saw the Moko Jumbie. I screamed and my grandmother came outside and saw it too. The neighborhood kids complained to their parents that the saw the large spirit dancing around the neighborhood but only some of the parents believed them.
The next night at around three o clock (I was beginning to see a pattern here) I heard fire burning and when I looked outside I saw the soucouyant in my yard. When it saw me it flew away but my mom woke up with blood seeping through her flesh. She assumed that she was sucked from the soucouyant. The neighbors started suspecting and gossiping that it was the obeah man and some others that were 'dirtying their hands' (this is a Trinidadian term that refers to someone doing black magic) with these evil beings. So my parents decided since we were all Muslims at the time to go see our Imam (Islamic Leader).
He told us that he sensed heavy witchcraft going on in our neighborhood and that we needed to protect ourselves. He told us to read the last two chapters of the Qur'an when I was being attacked again.
My parents tried to stay up with me but they fell asleep. At three o clock in the morning again I started to hear sounds like an army marching and I started to feel very cold like death was coming for me in haste. When I looked through my window I saw what looked like to me demons marching around my home. I immediately started to read the two last chapters of the Qur'an. When I reached the verse:
"From the mischief of Darkness as it overspreads;"
I heard a voice shouting saying "Leave Rashidah and Nabilah (that is my sister's name) alone! They are only children. Children I say!"
I heard this voice for a while and I started to feel relaxed and at peace. That was the last night of the attacks.
I will let you all be the judge of if I am telling the truth and if I know or do not know anything of what evil spirits act like.
Love You All
Later that night, I slept in a king size bed with my uncle, his wife, myself and my cousin. In that order. Sometime during the night, I opened my eyes and saw a ball of fire moving in an infinity pattern. It looked like the top quarter of an old woman; head and shoulders. It was an indian woman, dark skinned... I still remember that face today! Below where her chest would be was the ball of fire.
After I saw it, I shut my eyes and didn't move for what seemed to be a half-an-hour. I finally opened my eyes and it was gone.
The next morning, I went to my grandma (it was her house) and told her what happened. She explained to me that was a Soucouyant.
I first thought it was my mind playing tricks on me, but the fact that I did not know what it was and I saw it just proved the fact that Soucouyants are real.
Long story short... If Soucouyants and Jumbies are real... Then what else is out there?
