I do not believe in voodoo.By the occult meant the manipulation of the energy field in/around a person using mantras (primal sound vibrations) or meditative practices.
Neither should you.
Not if you want to appear intelligent.
The movie Poltergeist explores the energy fields and auras that you describe.
But that is just Hollywood.
Hollywood, voodoo, and Joel. Birds of a feather flock together.
