Visualisation This is the process of forming positive thoughts as a means of creating wellbeing.  Uses of visualisation in healing originated through a religious and/or mystical tradition, later spreading through the thoughts of the mystery schools including the Hermetic, Kabbalists, the Rosicrucians, and Gnostic Christians.
Vodun See Voodoo.
Voodoo The term Voodoo is applied to those branches of the West African Fon-Ewe people of Benin (formerly the Kingdom of Dahomey), where Vodun (Voodoo) is now the national religion of more than 7 million people.  The word Vodun translates into 'spirit'.  Since crossing on slave ships from Dahomey to Cuba and Brazil, we now find 'Voodoo' or 'Vadium' in Haiti, also known as Hoodoo in Mississippi and New Orleans.
