    Jumbies ....

    Who know bout Lajabless ... if yuh run into one .. take off yuh clothes and turn dem inside out ... dat go protek yuh.

    Who know bout Dwen ... To stop dem from lurin yuh children into the forest at dusk, doe shout dey name in ah open place, or de Dwen go take the echo from yuh voice and lure yuh child in de wrong direction.

    When Ah Was Small ... Dah Lajabless Shyt Used To Rell Fock Meh Up.

    In America ... De Only Jumbies Ah Dos See Now Is De Ones On Atlantic And Bedford When Ah Stop At Ah Red Light. When Yuh See Dem ... Lock Yuh Doors And Turn Up Yuh Window ... Dey Go Walk Straight Past Yuh.

    This thread was inspired from the new girls Obeah inspired thread about "What Yuh Go Be When Yuh Dead .. Or Where Yuh Goin Or Someshytlikedat" ... Tanks for creepin me out.

    lemme help you out...

    West-Indian Folklore

    Ghost Stories, "Obeah" Stories, Etc.

    Classical Children's Stories are so gruesome

    'FUNMIX FRIDAYS': Match the Trinbago Folklore Characters to Imix members... lol

    Caribbean Folklores! I loved hearing these stories

    here are my threads on this
    Let's talk Obeah 101....

    i love a good obeah/occult thread yes...so make sure an make it interesting.. dat remind me i have to start watching Once upon a time tonight! :


    but hear dis nah.. dis is de defn' of a la diablesse..

    La Diablesse
    La Diablesse (Lajables), the Devil Woman, roames at night. She has eyes like burning coals and a face resembling that of a corpse, but hides it under a beautiful wide-brimmed hat and a veil over her face. She is dressed exquisitely in a blouse with puffy sleeves and long, petticoated, skirts. She has one cloven foot, which she tries to hide under her long skirts. She turns up at village dances, where she is immediately disliked by the women present, but she utterly charms the men and then asks one of them to take her home. He follows her, totally under her spell. She leads him deep into the woods and then suddenly she disappears. Unable to find his way home, the poor fellow stumbles around in the dark wood until he either falls into a ravine or a river to his death or gets attacked by wild hogs.

    Old people talk: If you feel you may encounter a La Diablesse on your way home, take off all your clothes, turn them inside out and put them on again, and this will surely protect you from a La Diablesse.
    me and my cousin went to help out some friend of hers at dis place on clarkson.. i think is that guyanese or grenadian hole in the wall spot.. there was this woman there who i kid you not. had on a long skirt, a white peasant top, a straw broad hat (which i had find strange as fck).. and we was by the door and i remember turning around and she was jes in the party.. so i say to my cousin.. wait.i seeing tings? da woman over dey .. where she come out from? and why she dress like a la diablesse??? so we laugh it off and ignore she.. so den i was takin pics.. and i take a pic with her in the foreground.. then i say wait.. and i keep taking more .. cos in the pics she was coming out blurry but everybody around her came out crystal clear.. i show my cousin and now both of us feel edgy lol.. then when de party done, she ask dese two young boys to give her a lift to her car .. just right down the road and i remember saying to my cousin.. is it just me or she hat hiding she face in every possible direction??? it was truly strange..and kinda creepy how things played out..

    The Conjuring is scary as hell because it's based on a real family here is a video based on the real doll in that movie... there is no way I would have this shit in my house!

    This is the doll in the movie



    This is the real doll ....

    You know the reason for all of this right? It's not about protection against any jumbie per se, its to keep your brain moving when you are scared.
    What happens if something terrifies you? Your fear makes you freeze up...your brain cant function, your body wont move and your spirit gets stuck.
    So taking off your shoes and putting them on the wrong feet and tying the shoelaces together, turning your clothes inside out etc etc. Gives you something else to focus on when you are scared so you dont freeze up.
    So you dont actually do the above...you think the above so that you can do something like keep walking and never look back, to get you out of the situation. That is the real protection.

    He wasn't shame?

    I have a strange fascination with creepy WI folklore. One of my sisters really believe in soucouyant and in her old place used to swear the nice old lady that lived downstairs was one. Always showing me marks on her skin and putting salt by her door, rest of us used to say at her.
