Witch doctor aunty/u/Queen5252

I dislike that they call her that, so I call her a healer. She uses plants to heal the people that are possessed. Most of the time she is your ordinary aunty, but in that small island, people turn to her when they have a family member that’s unable to control themselves. I’ve never seen her perform her magic but I’ve heard stories from my dad, mom, and grandma about the work she does. One of the stories they told me was a young woman was brought in because her family said she was touched by a ghost. It’s believed that if a ghost touches you, you get possessed. Ghosts are a normal thing in that little island. Everyone knows they are around. Anyway, the family had to hold her down otherwise she would run to the woods. She wasn’t herself… it took about 5 men to hold a young woman down. My aunt had to tell the father of the woman… to go to a specific tree and pluck the leaves. So as the man exits the house and heads towards the tree, the tree magically changes into a mango tree. My father said that the spirit that is inside the young woman would try to make things seem as if it weren’t there. So you could imagine how hard it was, anyway, the man was told of the tricks these spirits can do… and so he plucked the leaves to help the witch doctor. She mixes leaves and rubs it on the woman and slowly the lady calms herself down and sleeps. Exhausted from the possession. Anyway, I truly believe my aunt is amazing. The word witch doctor paints her as a person who doesn’t help and is casting spells. She plays bingo and has a bunch of beautiful grandbabies who she spends her time with. Her name means light…. She is thee healer of that land and I’m so grateful I got to meet her.
