What is Macumba?

What actually is Macumba? This is a really hard question to answer, because it's so difficult to describe in words what Macumba really is, especially to someone who has had no firsthand experience of Macumba themselves. This is also made even harder by the fact that the true secrets or detailed explanations of how Macumba can be used are not allowed to be shared publicly.

To put it simply, Macumba practitioners aren't allowed to tell you how they put the actual Macumba in a Macumba candle, for example, and what significance the different wax colors and layers hold during the planning process, and so on.

To try and describe it in simple words, Macumba is everywhere. It's present in every thing and every living being, more or less. Macumba is the possibility to make changes, and to make the otherwise impossible become a reality. Macumba is a part of life, and a part of death. Macumba can be good, and it can be evil. Macumba is both obvious and concealed at the same time.

Many people come up with their own explanations on what they describe Macumba to be. To many people, it is their religion (however wrong that may be). To some people, it's a powerful tool they want to use for evil, or for good. Some uninformed witnesses of Macumba effects would simply refer to it as "a miracle". And to many Brazilians who have personally witnessed Macumba's powerful negative effects, it's something they want nothing to do with out of fear.

As I said, it's almost impossible to accurately describe what Macumba is to someone who doesn't already know some of it through the learning and practice of Macumba. If you were interested to get some firsthand experience of Macumba practice for yourself, you would have to travel to Brazil, particularly to the poorest districts, where most of the real Macumba practice in the world is happening. When asking the locals there about Macumba, they will be able to point you to the nearest publicly known Macumba practitioners, or to the more dubious Macumba oracles.

While this surely won't explain to you what Macumba actually is, you would at least be able to define what it might be to yourself after you have seen some real life examples of it. I really wouldn't recommend it though, because it's not a very safe environment for tourists.

In my opinion, the most accurate short description for Macumba would be that it's a universal force/energy that can be used for both good and evil.


What Macumba is not

So after we have established that there is no simple way to describe what Macumba actually is, on the other hand it's quite simple to describe what Macumba is not. Everywhere you look, there are examples of so-called "Macumba" that are actually not related to real Macumba in any way.

Fake Macumba items

Real Macumba items are not available for sale on any other website or local shop. Below you can see a few examples of fake Macumba candles which can be found in various stores.

You may ask how I could claim to know that, but the answer is quite simple. Publicly selling Macumba items is generally forbidden to Macumba practitioners, as is spreading too much information about it. The only exception to this are Macumba oracles, but since they are basically just Macumba scrap dealers, they are being tolerated more or less.

As a reward for my achievements in Macumba, I have been granted a unique permission to create this website in order to spread true information about Macumba and to offer real Macumba items for sale, something that has never been seen before.

Various misinformation

Macumba was not created in Africa or Brazil, as some other sources would have you believe. To put it simply, Macumba has always been, and always will be. While it certainly is practiced the most in South America and Africa, this is not where Macumba originates from.

Macumba itself is not associated with animal abuse, such as putting various objects into the mouth of a frog and then sewing it shut in order to create "Macumba" effects. This cruel practice can be found online when searching for Macumba. Personally, I am very much against any kind of animal mistreatment. While some old-fashioned Macumba practitioners still sacrifice black chickens to fuel their Macumba rituals, this is not necessary in any way. It's simply their old tradition that has become too commonly used, also due to misinformation. The same effect can be achieved with red wine, for example.

Why Macumba is not a religion

Many sources, such as Wikipedia and various books, would have you believe that Macumba is some kind of religion, but this is simply false information. Macumba is not a religion or faith, and also not associated with belief, prayer, gods, or worship. The religions that are known under the name of Macumba have practically no connection to the true nature of Macumba and of what is being offered on this website.

However, religions that have had some ties to real Macumba do exist. For example, there have been people who have witnessed the effects of Macumba in the past, and because they could not explain it to themselves how such things are possible through any other way, they thought it must be coming from some kind of god or deity.

In turn, they started to build a religion with made up Macumba deities at its center, and because Macumba can easily be witnessed by everybody where real Macumba is being practiced often, they have attracted a healthy amount of followers to these religions.

Followers of this religion try to practice Macumba in many ways that are not connected to real Macumba at all, such as leaving offerings or making animal sacrifices to their made up Macumba deities.

In the end, these religions have nothing to do with the true nature of Macumba, except for the fact that their various beliefs originate from witnessing actual Macumba effects.
