This was my first altar to Erzulie Freda, also known as Metres Mambo Ezili Freda Daome. I learned quickly that in certain parts of Haiti .The Pink image of her and the blue image of her mean something. But I will not get into that right now. Erzulie Freda is a beautiful lwa but she is one of the misunderstood lwa in in the vodou pantheon. The image you see of Guadalupe is an image used for her beautiful sister Erzulie Dayila.
The reason I made this blog was to give more accurate information and to help others that might want to know more about this beautiful lwa, Also to connect with others who have Erzulie Freda in their court also known as a spiritual frame. Erzulie Freda is so well known, that other religions try to claim her as well. Which once again is how misinformation about her is spread around on the internet.
Erzulie Freda is not a lwa for a novice to deal with even though her color pink makes her seem approachable. Here is story about that very issue of her being fickle http://www.ezilikonnen.com/the-lwa/ezili-freda/
The day that I constructed this humble altar or Erzulie Freda, I made sure that everything was as pristine as possible. It is so funny how I look back at this alter and see how much I have grown in my spirituality and service to Erzulie Freda. I am blessed to have elders that guided me on how to do a proper service to Erzulie Freda.
Everything was a learning process, like finding out that she does not like champagne despite what you see online. Yet her sister Erzulie Dayila loves it (LOL). Erzulie Freda love fine cheeses as well and delicate cakes.
I find she enjoys white chocolate as well. This lady loves luxury in every since of the word. If you serve this beautiful lwa the right way or have service done for you she can make your dreams come true with in reason. That is the other wonderful thing about Erzulie Freda she gives you the ability to dream and be creative. Haitian Vodou is such a beautiful religion but like Erzulie Freda misunderstood by many.
