Another Interesting Review about the Ritual Offerings Book





Another Interesting Review about the Ritual Offerings Book


From times to times people comment with me about the areas I wrote at that book. 
Here I will write about a very nice one I received.


But first, just for some background.

From the presentation of the book in Nephilim Press:

"...Ritual Offerings unites 12 practicing occultists who share their knowledge and experience with this fascinating and important subject..."


Few years ago Aaron Leitch started this great project and someway he found my ideas was suitable to be together with the works of some of the most know people at Western Magick.



The contributors include:
Aaron Leitch: Introduction: Magickal Offerings in Western Occultism
Aaron Leitch: Liber Donariorum: The Book of Offerings
Zadkiel: The Elements of Making Offerings: The Offering as Sacrifice
Bryan Garner (Frater Ashen Chassan): Whispers From a Skull: Lessons in Spiritual Offerings From a Conjured Familiar
Brother Moloch: Ancestors & Offering
Frater Rufus Opus: The Back Yard Path Toward the Summum Bonum
Denise M. Alvarado: Ritual Offerings in New Orleans Voudou
Jason Miller: Severed Head Cakes and Clouds of Dancing Girls: Offerings in Tibetan Buddhism
Nick Farrell: Offerings in Roman Deity Magic
Sam Webster, M.Div., Ph.D., founder OSOGD: Offerings in Iamblichan Theurgy
Chic Cicero and Sandra Tabatha Cicero: Ritual for the Declaration of Maa-Kheru
Gilberto Strapazon: Offerings in Ceremonial Magick and African Traditional Religions



Each one of the others are well known at the occult areas and have a long time of practice and study and are truly skilled in their areas at most top levels.

As people like some information, yes, every one of them have a long time at most known occult orders and magick areas, plus a lot of occult groups nobody even think to exist (I won't cite Illuminati for sure... LOL).
All of them are Masters in their own right, with a formal and solid work, with their own path and working groups too.

So thanks to the internet, I knew and had contact with many of them, learning a lot and sharing knowledge for years, even since some two decades posting at online forums and groups in many countries.

Be sure to have my experience to become part of this work was a true gift for me too.




What I did and why I wrote that material: 

I'm worried with the mixings among many magic and spiritual areas.

I see this every day.

Be sure I did it too and learned a lot for sure. Tears and blood included, no kidding. 

I have seen people going after "easy results" or just because not checking sources, to be mixing ATR (African Tradional Religions) with others areas.

First, ATR is a really fantastic area. But is not all. And it's not for all. I fully respect the decent priestes, the nice people who do a very nice work. I just had a lot of time at the darkest and corrupted areas too and that is what many people will find easy due lack of knowledge about the area as few comment how some things works.


And to be clear, what I wrote is very related to "any mixings" among practices, so is not only muxings with ATR.
Repeating: what I wrote apply to any mixing of areas. For example, western pagan fairy magick with Tao or anything else. Be sure something won't work at that. 

Each area has a reason to exist and not all times what appears to be alike means to be the same.
 There are lots of works, blogs, websites, books, artcicles at magazines presenting "spells" and dirtorted information that is result of such mixings. 


Currently I see this happens with every possible magick and spiritual areas, Grimoires, Pagan, Viking, Tao, Buddhism, Reiki, and even in Evangelic churches!

I'm very serious about some churches and there's lot of funny videos from some evangelic churches where what they are doing is 100% ATR, but people think that was because "Jesus". No way! That's ATR work (or other source) and with results common people are not aware about the troubles to happens later. And some of such priestes are using that sources on purpose, I say, some churches and other groups are doing secret works too to manipulate people. This to say a minimun.


An Example Not So Simple To Deal

A simple result of such mixings is the idea many people will find about "baths". What is easy to find anywhere is the stupid comment to "do not wash" your head with salt or even herbs.
That is always 100% because ATR forbid this to people who are formally initiated. SO this does not apply to all the other people! Please, wash your head when you do such spiritual baths and avoid a lot of future troubles for yourself!
For people at Solomonic areas, just remember the grimories are clear about full bath, including head.
Here's an article on purpose:
Do Thick Salt Bath or Herbal Bath Over Your Head?
This is a very simple example. Just a wrong done bath can make a mess at one's life.
Be sure, 100% of times, no exceptions, including some authors from areas as different as "Reiki" who are speaking to not to wash your head, I always found that everyone has or had more intimate contact with ATR and have no other source to cite. Ok, some are so stupid to say "there was formal studies about..." Guess what? I went after that and found 100% their study sources was ATR and most of them was part of some ATR group too before. Yes, I took time to check such sources always. Dot.
I'm commenting only a minor part of the text for that book, but see how something that appears "so simple" as a herbs or salt can result in troubles? (please, read the above linked text for this)


This was my writing work at that book. For curiosity, the biggest chapter at the book. 
The original material for sure was edited and we needed to cut a lot. From some 70 to +30 pages. And still I have material for near 500 pages.  May be a future work?  


Some Good Results


We already has some very nice reviews about that work and is great to see people get the idea about how to improve their magick works.

The grimoires just cite how to make tools and what prayers to do. Same at many other areas.
Most lack to comment "how to work". And here's another idea for this book. How to improve the methods at any magick area and get more results of that.




A Very Interesting Review


It is always good to hear about how our work has helped people.


This came from someone who contacted me and someway our work helped him.


Here's the review at Amazon: (click for source)


"Great book, helped provide life altering insight


A great and useful book with tons of useful info that, applied correctly, will help move the western magical tradition forward... or perhaps, arguably, backwards... but in a GOOD way... by bringing it back to it's pre-revival/reconstruction roots. Anyways, great book, and in a way unconnected, but equally important, to that last statement, one I credit with saving my life in a spiritual and material way.

Sounds dramatic, but I am quite serious. Basically, I was in an ATR (African Traditional Religion) that had gone in a very bad direction, and really had even before I was initiated into it. The situation, as best as I can see it (with clarity now)is that people entering it would be helped with a few issues... and then, almost imperceptibly, over time, their lives would go down hill... drama, trouble, broken relationships, a lack of prosperity etc etc etc etc etc... but this would happen in a way similar to that concept that a frog being dropped into boiling water will jump out automatically, but one placed in water that is slowly heated to boiling won't know his goose is being cooked until it is too late.

I was almost that frog/goose... but: the quick version is that something nudged me to get this book (and the one I got was the original printing hardback... so it was expensive, especially for me at that moment in time)... and then something nudged me to read, and re-read, and pay extra special attention to one particular entry :
"Offerings in Ceremonial Magick and African Traditional Religions" by Gilberto Strapazon
This particular essay describes, amongst other thins, everything that can go wrong in the ATRs in terms of corrupt priests, spirits that pose as one thing but are actually another, etc etc etc... and the problems that this can bring into the life of those caught up in such a situation.
reading and re-reading this started to wake me up, a little bit, to some of the ways in which I had been conditioned in and by the mess I had got caught up in... and mess is an understatement, as my life had gone to hell in a hand basket. I ended up getting a reading from Gilberto, something that I was also nudged into by some unseen force looking out for me that was doing it's best to communicate with me through all of the negative noise that had taken over my so-called life. The one-two punch of this essay and the reading I purchased from Gilberto further opened my eyes... though it still took a long time for all the info and truth to sink in (It's sad to admit this, but I had been heavily conditioned and brainwashed, via spiritual social means), but it eventually did. I left that house, and have felt a tremendous weight of sorrow, confusion and trouble lifted off of my shoulders.
As such, I am grateful for this book, and particularly the inclusion of that essay, and the book occupies a place of honor high up on my book shelf.

I recommend that anyone getting involved in, or already involved in spiritual work get and read this book, and particularly that essay, it just might save you a lot of trouble."


Wow!

Thanks for that and wish so many people discover more about how we can use offerings without being caught at traps, but to use the better of the magick art to improve their works.

How Long Maybe a Tarot Reading?

Amazing Climatic Changes.....

How Long Maybe a Tarot Reading?


"When you are after replies to your doubts, or exploring the misteries to get more knowledge there's not such thing as so big or so small.

All that matters when you got what you needed and not just what you wanted at start."


I got a new record in a tarot reading: lots of pages of text.
Often I add pictures of the cards I’m reading, but this time my camera is broken. And was not a case to copy the same cards images from somewhere else as I did when the client will be able to get more ideas or information from the images.
This was just a Standard type reading, without commenting the numerology related aspects that would add a lot more. Even so, at some part I did a minor citation about in case the person may want to learn more about himself.
Usually I try to be at 10 pages range in a standard reading. Some resulted at 15-18 pages and was a lot until now in my way of working. But this was really big.

Road To Paradise

Each person is different.

This case was even something simple when I took the initial One Main card. I have an option for such reading. The problem become when I start to comment that and explore in detail the aspects.
The matter was even a normal life question, but the client was on need to understand more the aspects, and this is what I’m working for, not just a reply, but add information to the client understand and be able to walk by himself.
This is why I say my work is first for guidance.
Even when the reading is for explore about some work on magic, I have to explain why and what I’m think is possible to do. There’s things people can do by themselves while at other times, I found is correct to explain what is I’m suggesting to work and why and how that will be related for going after for a result.
Just to remember, nobody can assure guarantee results in magic and this is clear stated and explained at the “Readings and workings” page.
Would be easy to me just say… “oh yes, this is so and so and I suggest this or that”.
But no.

See, I’m working alone, far away from the client. This is not a live talking to ask questions or get more information. I’m just working with my own vision plus the Tarot or any other oracle I found suitable to someone anywhere in the world. The same way I need to trust on my guts I found needed to explain what I’m seeing the better way.
And I can’t got quiet when I’m talking with a client, or as usuall, I’m just writing to someone really far away (99,99% most of my clients live far and at other countries). So as my main work is guidance and I’m seeing there’s information the person does not get by himself or have a need to learn more about what I’m talking.
By learning, I say I will try to teach and suggest personal aspects to observe and how to deal with that, areas to explore and study in life. A reason any magic work is under my discretion.

Another simple reason, is my work is not cheap, so I’m not just adding words to make the proposal to be “nice”, but because there’s the need to understand a bit more about what we do and why some works goes easy from hundreds to many thousand dollars value. Such works are not just golden pills to use and when suggested, some may result even in a long working time from myself and even risks evolved, for example, if someone ask me to enter in a kind of war due some reason in their interest this may result in some kind of backfire I have to be prepared to deal. And some works means just years, in a step by step practice.

A really long Tarot reading.That may happens.
So the size of a reading is to present the best I can, and also because I don't bill just for some specific ritual, but for a goal for each one suggested. Sometimes a ritual will lead to another, may need to be repeated for a time, add more others, etc. Talking about the learning path, is always a good practice to ask to the spirits I'm calling what's their suggestion or even they do by themselves, so I have to move to another area and usually that is by me only.  For sure I always notify my clients the possibility for billing for something more when and only I found (and clear explain why) such thing will be really out of any previous measures. Until today, never needed such thing BUT I need to notify the possibility and at same time, I'm very glad and give thanks at some very extreme cases when my older clients offered by themselves additional values like a big gift as they recognizes all the additional works done.

The size of a reading for sure is not all. It’s the contents that matters.
A funny aspect, is when I'm doing revisions of the text trying to make it short, and the result is to add even more material. LOL...

As a personal example, sometimes I paid for readings to myself, as I like to have another opinions and so I received formal readings from people I respect a lot, Many was like some phrases and others also was a bit large. But that was all Ok too as they knew who I was and didn’t need so much explaining.
To repeat, I like to have another opinions. I’m not at some magic forums just to cheap talk or teaching others, but to listen and learn with many people I respect a lot. So I often check what I’m doing, use different oracles and ask for opinions. This is just because I’m human like your, and no matter I have near zero faults at readings for more than two decades, does not means I see all and does not means my opinion and experience was the better, but I'm sure about what I have seen.
Someday I expect to find something I really don’t know how to deal and need to learn and I’m humble to say this: someday I will be wrong too, it’s part of our spiritual and magic learning too.
I got cheated too many times mainly due my compassion, a hard learning under tears and blood.

When I dream of fairytales
Art by Elisabeth Zartl - Austria
By other side, we see readings so much generic, even in the right way, but lacking more information. Not a public critic, just an opinion and with respect to the ones who are able to present very short and precise replies. I just need to talk a lot sometimes and the same way, I see people also deserve more comments accordingly their experience.
For sure, in a normal reading, I don’t need to add all such material, just I like to do and when I can to make it for guidance, I do it.
May be with time I will learn to write more using less words or just make my work so specific so people don’t need so much talking.

I stopped to do live readings a long time ago, this still is a possibility for something like a local “day of readings” when someone hire me to do something like 8-10 readings in a day, one each hour or less. I had in the past 30 minutes readings for an entire day too. It’s very interesting. as I did it in the past, and is a matter of someone prepare a group, care of all expenses and the needed proper place. Usually that are nice spiritual times too as I need to opens up myself for a lot of people, including public talk for a group.

When I talk live, I really talk fast, and this is what I write in a normal reading. This one so big I’m citing at the top of this article is near the same as talking near two hours with someone who I was in need for that and the final text is a resume of that.
For sure, I edit and review my texts to shorten it as cited and too often I add more! 
But for live readings, I found 30-40 minutes use to be the needed for a reading. I can talk even just some 5 minutes at the Extreme Method and present all needed info. Each case is different for sure. Sometimes I will talk 20-30 minutes just about one card or in a brief about the personal numerology.
So when I start writing and expanding what I see to put all that ideas into words, the results may become even such big writings.


Something important to note, because the title of this article, and for sure of interest to anyone doing readings, live or not, and is a common problem with some people who does not respect professional work. I'm talking about a personal reading. Be a live talk or by e-mail as I do. The problem is some people just try abuse and want to ask about everyone in the family, relatives, friends, their company busines and etc. For sure your relationship or if the reading is about your job that is Ok. But add more specific to make a favor to others no. That is always abusive. If you go to a doctor, you pay for each one the doctor will look for. Ok? A formal reading is the same. Many readers are abused this way and that is a shame.


To add some information about the way I do my readings. And how I work to people at any place in the world. (I live in the south of Brazil so get the idea) To be clear, the last personal reading I remember was some 3 years ago for a closer friend. For sure I'm not the only doing this.  
First I'm on my own vision at start. When someone ask a reading I will see the person question or life with my own inner vision. This is personal and very related to my experience in life. Also a reason at forums I reply to someone and cite I'm under my vision. Be sure I don't use any oracles for that.
The same reason I say nobody is invisible at magic. Be a normal person or someone using a nickname in a forum. Always there's a connection to the one who posted a comment.
Second, despite my vision, and to remember I say I'm not perfect, I will call the oracle, the Tarot (or Runes, I-Ching, etc) and also call for the spirits vision too.
Third, I always evoke other spirits to work with. That start with the angels/deities related to the area, plus the client guardian angel (is always neeeded to ask persmission to enter at the person's world). And as needed, any other angels/spirits/daemons related to the question. All they will add information about the questions.
And for sure, all this add to my own vision for sure and I have to measure that.


The most important is to present the needed reply and when I can add information to the client think about, learn as possible and receive suggestions for their lives become better and with knowledge about what’s happening and coming at their personal path.

Changes in the Tarot Readings



Changes in the Tarot Readings

(Portugues: Use o botão Translate no lado esquerdo da tela)

(Edited due other changes.)



Seat and let's me talk for you.

Once I read something like this:
When you are in front of a Master just ask:
- What to do.
Nothing else is necessary.

With time and personal experiences, I observed more and more I just talk what I see.

As I talk what I see also I observed people and their needs and the ways I can work with that.

Not all people are at spiritual paths. Most are just at normal lifes, have a company, or deal with their homework, or are at the school, whatever.

I'm not here to say you must follow a spiritual path.
But I'm sure anything you do, at some time will be your own path and this is a kind of being spiritual too.
Whatever happens, someday any people will find a main energy ruling life. 


So I did some changes in the Tarot readings I do.

As I work for guidance, at any reading I'm looking first who you are, your path and what to do about.

Then I will look for your questions and others life's areas.

But not all people are after all that information about self-knowledge areas in the same way many just want a guidance for their life or companies.

With time, I have commented more and more, so this make difficult to work with, as not all people are after all that material.

For example, when I comment about numerology, I will make more than a map of your life, but add a lot of information about many areas with suggestions and examples for each case and all that inside a Tarot reading.

And the Tarot part, may goes further a lot about questions and aspects related I'm exploring.

The result is too much work so I need to make some adapt to do it better.



Choose what you need


My readings are never limited to how many cards I will be using, as I do a kind of talk with the angels and spirits called to the reading work. 

The Standard Tarot/Oracle reading.  
I comment the oracle parts, so it's more objective and focused on the practical aspects. 
I will be discussing your questions in many spreads as I found needed to get information and present the best sugestions I can.

The  Tarot/Oracle reading commenting Numerology aspects. 
This is also a self-knowledge reading. 
I will first comment your birthday numerology aspects, who you are and how that works as a map to your life. This is a personal study and I strongly suggest you to print it and save for future study. The material I write here are related to all your life and may be re-read and studied in the future years many times. 
And this material I will use if you do another later readings as I will be commenting about from the previous material you received.
The second part is the Tarot readings, plus I will be pointing what aspects of your personal numbers are acting there and why. 
It's become a long size work and unique to each case. 



Wish this for now help people to find better options.

Do Thick Salt Bath or Herbal Bath Over Your Head?

Photo: Gina Blank - Canada


Do Thick Salt Bath or Herbal Bath Over Your Head?
How to make a big mess just because a bath or an incomplete cleanup.


Portuguese resume: "Banho de Sal Grosso ou ervas pode e deve ser feito incluindo a cabeça. A estória sobre fazer só do pescoço para baixo é só repetição de algo que é para sacerdotes formalmente iniciados em religião africana. Se você não é de alguma religião destas (ou apenas frequenta mas não tem assentamentos de Orishas/Lwas), faça seu banho tranquilo. E depois faça um banho com ervas para fortalecimento das areas desejadas".


Spiritual baths are used at almost all traditions.

To start I took as example the very popular Thick Salt Bath.
Most of this apply to others baths types too.

Such baths have in basic one or more of these purposes, I just made a simple resume, not complete but that give an idea:

Cleaning baths:
  • Remove negative energy.
  • Banish some negative spirits and/or astral larvae.
  • Cleanup part of the negative influences due curses/magical attacks.
  • Neutralize some aspects due diseases.
Protective Baths:
  • To empower your body and soul. 
  • Keep away energies and spirits.  
  • To make strong your barriers.
Empowering baths:
  • Attract positive energy (love, health, wisdom, wealth, etc).
  • Add needed energy aspects. For example, some baths are good for mediumship or dreams.
  • Add protection power to body and soul.
  • Add specific powers like planetary aspects due proper correspondences.
  • Become in tune with some desired energies.
  • Healing.
  • Protection.


There are some similar results while washing your house/office with herbs or smoking with herbs for cleanup or attract desired energies.


For sure I won’t discuss about doing cleanups at large buildings, offices or land areas like farms. There are many other practices proper to such places, that need more power. But even so, the basic are related, so you will have an idea about what is to be done.


What is the Thick Salt Bath? 

What is the Thick Salt Bath? It’s just a cleanup, most for eletronic type energy and low-level spiritual energies including astral larvaes. Start with the idea of the purifying aspects of the salt, plus the simple electronic results it has over any energy.

A salt bath is just a cleanup, not selective, to remove any energy, bad or good.

Such bath is very popular just because it’s used when people feel they are at bad times and need a cleanup of the bad aspects in life.

Many people use to do a sea bath at the New Year celebrations as a cleaning too.


You must get this: a Thick Salt Bath is not a banishing against strong spirits. Such cases need more to be done.


Many of such baths may have a prayer part, most used by formal magicians and people who works at spiritual areas.

By other side, the common, “normal” person just is after a bath to cleanup the bad and they just think about to attract the good energies into their lives.

But the salt only remove and clean, so you need to do a second bath later to attract the good energies


A classic example used by many ceremonial magick practitioners is the Solomonic Bath, that uses consecrated water and salt, a lot of prayers and sometimes some herbs:
“…Enter the bath once again, recite Psalms 104 and 81 and pour the water over your head several times....”
 from: The Solomonic Bath – Aaron Leith


If you do not have a bathtub, you can use a bucket. 
Yes, this is a water with ice bath, and is a good spiritual bath too!

The problem

Too often I see people cite about doing cleanup baths and add a “warning” to not pour that over your head.
I fully disagree. Who are they? Do your herb or salt bath without fear from head to toes.


Such baths are part of the many ways for a spiritual cleanup, to remove bad energy, banish spirits, protection or to just to attract good energies into your life.

To be clear: as cited above there are baths to remove energies and the same there are baths to get energies.

And to be very clear: having a bath in a clear fall in the mountains, or in a stream, or a rain bath, including your bathtub or shower also have spiritual capabilities for cleanup!


Source: Spiritualjapan


Even a clear water is a cleanup or empowering bath if proper used. To be clear, do a prayer and consecrate the water.
It’s just a bath to make it simple. But with additional effects.
And many of that works near in the same way like doing smoking with herbs.
To repeat, some will banish energies and some will attract energies.
And for sure there are rituals to do since the basic to even more complete cleanups.



Why some people say to not pour the bath over your head?

Most of them does not know the why. They are just repeating like parrots. Someone told, or they read at any magazine, etc.

The most popular source for this idea in the western countries is because a mixing of practices with some from ATR (African Traditional Religions).

The idea presented is because the head is a kind of “property” of some spirits of that religions, the Orishas, Lwas or someone else. Some use a different word, but still the idea is “property”. Some even forbid their members to have a simple bath at the sea! Yes, you can’t swim in the ocean!



If you are not a formal initiated member of such religions that in no ways to forbid washing your head apply for you. Dot.
If anyone even cites some "study" about not washing head, be sure until today 100% of times I went after the original sources and confirmer it was some of such religions. Dot.


Some religion say you can’t eat pork. Others say cow are sacred. Others are vegans and etc.

Each area have their practices.

So keep yours, just respect others the same way they have to respect you. .


If you are a client at some of that areas for sure be respectful, but they also must respect you too. That is their practice, their faith, not yours. You are not forced to enter into a religion if you are just a client.


You have to go after information too. Look for more sources.
For sure I respect the good and serious priestess and priestesses. I'm a Babalorixa at Candomble ("father of saint", just a formal priest), so this is my opinion.
I just had too much bad experiences and knew so much bad corrupt ones to learn and think more what may be or not to be right. And be sure this happened at other areas I work for decades.


Do not act blind! If you do not receive a very clear and decent clear reply from spiritual mentors, or even become threated due asking, get out fast!

"No true spiritual ally, like a true friend in the land of the living, should treat you as a pet. Either they serve you or you're equals. - Gordon Finn” 
from the Ritual Offerings book.


This is something simple and is part of all I wrote about the risk of mixing practices for the Ritual Offerings book. The part I wrote is related to many other magical areas too. There are many ways to opportunists spirits (and the charlatans) get control and feed from your life. 99% of what I wrote most ATR priestess won’t tell you. That’s my practical experience, I went deep in the darkest corrupt areas, I learned under blood and tears. So please remember there are the good ones who are serious and do a good work. I'm just pointing the many traps.

The other problem as told above, are the people who just repeat things like parrots about magick and spirituality. They become victims too, just are working blind in the magic/spiritual because they don't know what's really behind that.

What may happens if you do not bath your head too?

To be simple, the bath will be incomplete and allow opportunists spirits to take you.

If you don’t bath your head, that important area become opened to any intrusive spirits and energies.
One simple idea to compare is doing unsafe sex. Would you trust if someone you just found, want sex at start without condoms and even get furious if you question that?
Think on risks. Have safe sex and the same way, have safe religion and spiritual practices.


So if you are not a formal initiated member at such religions, and avoid doing a bath over your head because an idea that appears even a threat from an unknown source, guess what kind of spirit will find very easy to find an opened door and take that space? Uhm? The bath will cleanup the entire body, including any guardian for a time, and that space will be taken by any energies waiting safe in the head!

And more important: if you are not a formal initiated and do not wash your head with the baths because fear some spirits, be sure that spirits won't be working to protect you. Forget the parrots talk, all that are incomplete. At any area, the spirits only will start to do some if you start working with them and doing offerings and even worship. At some areas this is the real purpose of tell you to not wash your head. A trap.



Higher spirits won’t destroy your life because a bath.

The higher ones spirits means to be powerful and able to keep some distance while you have a needed care. If some of that cause harm to your life because this, be sure you are not in a good area, so is better to get out and move to a safe place.


And see later the comment bellow about a needed second bath after the cleaning with salt or herbs.

I fully keep my position about anyone who is not an initiated at some religion. They have not to obey to some spirits that have nothing about their lives.The same if you eat pork, or like meat, is not a vegan, etc.


How baths work to make it simple:

If you do a cleanup (to remove energies), the only precaution is to remember if you have some kind of guardians. Just notify them so they will be apart for some time and return as you finished.

This is the same if you wash or smoke your house with herbs. Any spirit, angels, etc. will take distance. So if you have an altar for example, be sure the spirits/angels of the altar will also take a safe distance. Just remember to notify your guardians or altar spirits about the cleaning you will do and after some hours, call them back as commented bellow.

At the drawing I omitted any guardians just to make it more simple.

At the first, is an example of someone with all kind of bad energies, inside and outside.
The second, is what happens if you do not pour the bath over your head. That is simple: any energies at head level, inside and outside can stay there and later, will feed from the fertile area resulting bellow. This is why I used a grass area as example.
The third, is an example for a optimun full bath. In practice this is what is desired. To have a powerfull cleanup and empowerment and get good energy around.

Also, to make it simple, the idea here is doing a cleanup bath followed by an empowerment bath as cited next.





After the bath/cleaning remember to fill the place again

Once you had your bath, or did a house cleanup like smoke, etc., wait some few 3-4 hours so that have the needed effect and follow that with another bath or smoke with herbs to attract good energies.
Prayers are good too.

Get this? If it was a cleaning bath, just wait some 3-4 hours and do another bath, first just clean water to remove the salt and then bath with other herbs to attract the desired good energies.


As the cleaning salt/herbs bath can remove anything, so after you need to fill again the space with good energies.
And if you have guardians, altar spirits, etc., just light a candle, do a proper prayer and offer incense or smoke the place with positive herbs calling them to come back to the place you pointed to them at your house and life.

Note: sometimes after the first bath, when the person is to heavy due bad energies, the body will relax and need to sleep to rest. If this happens, is very Ok so have the needed sleep and then do the following bath.


This is the same basic idea for a general building cleaning. For sure these are other procedures and even stronger rituals to be done by a magician/priest. First banish the undesired spirits, then make a powering rite and invite the protection spirits to care of the place.
About buildings and land areas, for sure there are some extreme cases, where exorcism is needed and some of that can be really hard to deal.  To be sincere, some places are near impossible to cleanup again because is needed to negotiate with the spirits and what they ask may cost a lot, not just money for sure. So only mother nature will do that working for thousand years.


What herbs use later for an empowering bath?

That vary a lot.

Since the generic ones to specific areas, we have a lot of herbs to use and the choice sometimes is related with what area the person need more.

Some very easy to find:

  • Rose petals. For Spiritual and Love areas.
  • Bay Laurel. For protection and good to connect with higher levels of spirituality like spiritual mentors.Is good for money  too.
  • Cinammon. Body force, prosperity, money. 
  • Lavender. Peace and calm.
  • Rosemary. Mind focus. 
  • Hyssop. Cleanup physical and spiritual, remove negative energy and is also good for protection. See Psalm 51. You can use Mint in the same way.
  • Rose petals. Spiritual and Love power. 

You will find many herbs references. The important for the second bath is look for herbs to attract energies, not the cleansing ones. Remember, the idea is to add desired energies.

And repeating, always is good to do a prayer according your faith for your spiritual mentors bless the baths you are doing.


To resume

A spiritual cleanup bath can't be seen as a sin.
There are the cleanups, the protective and the empowering baths.

If you get all this, I’m sure some of you may start to think about some cases when people had did such baths not pouring the water over head and times later had the same or even worse effects as before. For example, some spirits asking for offerings to keep out.
It's easy to find people who started doing simple things and later they had to do more and more other works, too often to solve problems they had not before.
The same for buildings/houses cleanups when people do the banishing and don’t add the needed protection rite after the cleaning.

Remember, an empty body or building or land area is a place to be filled.
So have control over your life and do a decent complete cleanup and follow that with a rite/bath to invite the desired good energy/spirits to care of that.

So just do the complete bath and add an empowering one after for a complete result

Get this? Simple, uhm?

So do your bath from head to toes without fear and later just do another one to get good energy.


A big full thanks:

In memory of  "Uncle Neide Vilain", a famous witch from Florianópiolis, SC, Brazil who teached me a lot at so many areas, including about how using the bath salts. And she is the one responsible to makes me to be a writer.

Sem Excessos, Água é Energia de Vida.

A respeito da matéria publicada na Revista Exame: Coca-Cola se defende em caso de morte na Nova Zelândia:
"Mulher ingeria até dez litros do refrigerante por dia e sofreu ataque cardíaco; ...até água, ingerida em excesso, pode ser 'dramaticamente sintomática', disse a marca."

Meu Comentário:

Certamente. Até água em excesso pode matar.

É o tipo de processo judiciário sem sentido que mais atrapalha do que ajuda.

Citando vivências pessoais, que costumo relatar aqui no blog,  muitas vezes pratiquei uma técnica de purificação e energização pessoal em que se bebe muita água durante um certo período, geralmente duas a três semanas.

É uma técnica para desintoxicação, cura natural e para elevar a energia pessoal que aprendi durante os anos em que fui aos Andes, com Ramon, um shamã mexicano.

Pode-se chegar facilmente a dez litros ou mais. Já cheguei por vezes a 15 litros.

Mas é algo muito controlado, é necessário disciplina combinada com cuidado especiais na alimentação, aliado a pratica de yoga e meditação.

Deve-se observar os limites do corpo. 

Muita água pode causar isquemia e até um derrame (AVC) pois mexe e muito com seu corpo, sua mente e seu espírito.

Veja bem, estou falando de água pura. Se fosse suco de frutas já poderia causar algum problema por intoxicação. É fácil entender o que ocorreu com esta pessoa que consumia até dez litros de refrigerante por dia.

Então, sempre é bom lembrar: tudo pode fazer bem. Mas usado de forma adequada.

Não invente coisas nem espere que os outros sejam culpados pelos seus excessos ou omissões.

Oportunidade para Ampliar Consciência e Criatividade

Referente a matéria da Revista Galileu:Hotel recolhe aparelhos eletrônicos dos hóspedes no check-in.


Basicamente o Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel lançou um pacote onde as pessoas deixam seus eletrônicos durante dois dias para se dedicar a outras coisas, como a leitura de bons livros.

Meu comentário:

A idéia é muito interessante, se bem que o hotel fica em área bastante urbanizada.

Este tipo de atividade, pode ser muito mais produtivo em locais mais próximos da natureza, como pequenos lugarejos cercados por atrações naturais, fazendas, montanhas, recantos ecológicos, locais místicos, etc.

Quando proponho atividades assim ou comento no meu blog, falo sobre a busca do contato consigo mesmo e com as energias naturais, para ampliar o nível de consciência pessoal.

Além de alimentar corpo e espírito, são atividades ótimas para profissionais de todas áreas.

Empresas que necessitam encontrar produtividade e criatividade podem descobrir que qualidade de vida dá grandes resultados e amplia os horizontes de todos.

Locais como a Chapada Diamantina são repletos de oportunidade de desenvolvimento profissional e pessoal.
