SPIRITUAL CLEANSING AND DREAMING

SPIRITUAL CLEANSING AND DREAMING. .. .
So I was thinking about how negativity affects peoples’ sleep so deeply and so badly. . .

And how important dreaming is Spiritually.

Spiritually, dreaming is very important as it is a means of spiritual communication and guidance.

Without your guidance, you can and will be very lost.

So this is just one way that negativity blocks you . . . it will block you from even getting any help out of a situation . . .

including but not limited to even knowing how to handle a situation or move forward.

Negativity is known for blocking positive avenues and this situation with your rest, sleeping and dreaming only sets you up for one failure after another. For longer and stronger problems and issues in your life.

So I want to give you this article that I wrote a while back on just the topic of Spirituality and Dreaming.

ROOT OF SPIRITUAL NEGATIVITY

ROOT VERSUS THE GROWTH . . . .

When it comes to negativity, it is like a weed.

It has a root, and a growth.

And just like a weed, if you don’t yank it out from the root .. . .

It is just going to grow back.

And this often happens with negativity.

If it is heavily rooted, then . . . A Spiritual Cleansing is only going to chop it off the top.

Meaning, it is not going to yank it out the root, but rather mow it down some.

However, even this, will bring about great benefits.

Because even if it doesn’t cure the whole problem, at least it will bring about some relief.

And the more you spiritually cleanse, over time, the more it will cut it down.

When you cut down the growth, things will become easier and you will cut down the manifestations of the negativity in your daily life. You may not get rid of all of them entirely, but you will get rid of some. And others, you will be able to minimize or lessen.

Just so you know: When something is heavily rooted however, it will grow seemingly “on it’s own” but it is fact, a deeply rooted negativity within the energetic body, and it will also come back over and over as a reoccuring theme.

Things however, that are not as heavily rooted into your energy body, will simply be washed away in a spiritual cleansing. And this will also bring a great deal of new blessings and ease your burdens.

Spiritually unrooting some deep rooted issues is deep work, deeper than I could ever cover in an email. Maybe I’ll begin unravelling all of that in another series.

Some negativity in life however is unavoidable. That is why having a regular Spiritual Cleansing Routine is so important. It is like regular bathing, it keeps the health and current status of the body.

This includes but is not limited to the negativity of people we are close to, within our environment, within other places we go, etc . . .

So I hope I have clarified some of your questions . . . .
Until next time,

But I don’t need a spiritual cleansing, you say?

But I don’t need to be cleansed . . .

Believe it or not, I’ve heard this many times.

It couldn’t be further from the truth.
Who needs spiritual cleansing?

Everyone.

Every living person.

Once you understand that your energetic and Spiritual bodies are very real. Just as your physical body is, you will understand the need for cleansing it. And as such it needs care and maintanence.

Negativity and energy affects all living beings. Science teaches us this.

Unless you’ve recently and regularly spiritually cleansed yourself, you can benefit from Spiritual cleansing.

If you have never taken care of your Spiritual Body before, then it is akin to never having taken care of your physical body.

If you didn’t care for your physical body for your whole life, you would find  your teeth rotting, your body with sores, hair missing, all kinds of illness and disease.

If you haven’t taken care of your energetc or spiritual body before, then there are going to be many things that are going to be wrong.

And if you were to be fixing your physical body from such a state, you wouldn’t be able to fix it all over night, or in one fell swoop, or with one thing, at one time, in one session or go, it would take time and many treatments.

Until next time,
Keep the faith,

SPIRITUAL CLEANSING BASICS WORKSHOP

What Spiritual Cleansing Really Is .. . .

What is Spiritual Cleansing Really . . . . I’ve heard this question often.
Spiritual Cleansing is the process of removing negative energy from a part of your energetic body known as the Aura.

The aura is a part of your Energy body.

Negative energy attaches to the aura, or becomes enmeshed with the aura.

This negativity then attracts more negativity to the person whose aura it is connected to.

That is how it works.

The law of attraction doesn’t only work for you, it can work against you too!

This is one of those situations in how it can work against you.

The aura can also become clouded, dusty or dark by the negative energy. This causes confusion, headaches, problems with people in general.

It also attracts the evil eye on a greater level.

There are many ways that negativity becomes attracted or enmeshed in the aura. I am not going to cover those here. But this is basic to all Mystical, Magical and Spiritual work. If you don’t know about how energy works and how personal energy, your aura and personal power works, then I would suggest you go consider taking the 3 Keys to Power program as it is very foundational.

By the process of spiritual cleansing, Negative energies in the aura are either slowly broken up, and removed. Or removed. Spiritual Cleansing however is not often enough to remove a negative Spirit or Spiritual attachment. Though it often is part of what needs to be done after that attachment is removed. Remember, spiritual cleansings do not remove the root of the negativity. But rather remove the growth of it. Maybe I’ll discuss that in another email. In fact, if you think I should, then email me at this email address with the subject line “YES THAT WOULD BE GREAT, THANKS” . . . and I’ll see what I can do if enough people need it.

So, Spiritual cleansings also can reduce the amount of negativity that can flow to you in certain avenues. This is great because there are other avenues in which negativity can find it’s way in much more easily. . ..

Once negativity has been removed .. . .

Great things can start to happen.

Change, shifts, movement in your life, more, better, stronger energy . . .

and much more.

I have tons more to say about Spiritual Cleansing, so keep your eye out.
Until next time,

THE BODY OF VODOU

Your body is your most important spiritual tool. Of course we uses many tools from the sacred rattle of the Houngan to Ogou’s machete. But the body is the #1 most important tool of any spiritual practitioner and this is particularly true in Sevis Ginen.
When we give service to the spirits, we use our bodies to call them – singing, dancing, clapping/rattling etc. We also use our senses – spiritual sight, clairaudience, and more – to know when they are here. And sometimes, the Lwa use our bodies in order to come down and work with us directly in possession.
This means our bodies are a tool both for ourselves and the Lwa. So we need to look after them, especially during ceremonies. You will see it done at fets. The Hounsis see to it that the horse (the person who is possessed) is safe and comfortable during and after a possession. In fact, ensuring the welfare of the horse is one of the most important duties of the Hounsi.
Now you may already know the basics of taking care of your spiritual tools. It is for example important to maintain a clean working space physically and spiritually, and to maintain the altars in an appropriate way. Ditto all items used during service to the Lwa. You would not leave rotten food on the Rada table for example, or empty cups for Gede. Used-up items have no place on the altar and can in fact cause blockages in one’s spiritual progress.
When you begin your spiritual training you will be taught appropriate ways to look after the Lwa and how to feed them and strengthen your connections. But it is equally important not to neglect your body. Even though as I have said it is the most important tool of any spiritual practitioner, it is also frequently the most neglected.
The fact of the matter is that the physical body requires maintenance. Keeping yourself spiritually clean is one thing and there are many ways in which this can be done. But even if you are taking your spiritual baths etc. the physical body also requires work.
Your body is a gift from Bondje. Look after it and appreciate it while you have it, after all you won’t have it forever. Nourish it with good, strengthening food and take care of it when it is sick. Your body is a temple! You wouldn’t leave rubbish on the altar, so avoid feeding the body rubbishy food. And don’t starve it either – you’ve got to feed your spiritual force.
Make a commitment to your spiritual growth and progress, simply by taking better care of your body.  Make it a point to go and connect with nature daily.   Go outside and get good air.  Get some sun.  Make it your daily goal to bring movement into your body.  Move around, dance, dance for the fact you are living.  Do this daily, for one year, and come back and let me know how life has changed, I assure you for the better.
Enjoy your body and live well.

VODOU POKEMON

Vodou is not a game of Pokemon.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, because unfortunately it bears repeating. It is often the same perpetrators who make the mistake and some simply don’t want to listen. However:

Vodou is not a game of Pokemon. The Lwa are not Pokemon cards, and it is not about collecting them all.

Do not assume you will be stronger or better than others because you believe yourself to have more Lwa than they have, as that is not how it works.

Vodou is not a game, full stop. The Lwa are as real as you or me, they are not characters in a TV show. Do not treat them with disrespect.

All too often I see people trying to “collect” spirits. Now in truth this is not so simple. Just because you like a Lwa does not mean that you have that spirit walking with you. Just because your favourite food / colour / perfume (etc) is known to be their favourite also, does not mean they walk with you. Even if you work in an area of that Lwa’s expertise, it does not mean you are automatically their child (although they may be more inclined to listen to you when you pray).

The opposite is also true. You may not have a connection with a Lwa even when it does walk with you. Connections take time. But it helps to establish who you have walking with you if you ever want to progress in Vodou. Then you can decide which Lwa to serve, and learn how to do so properly.

It may be unpopular to point this out, but those who know me know I tell it like it is: to find out which Lwa walk with you and how to serve them, you can’t cut corners or open a book. You have to go straight to the source, to people who have walked the road before you. You have to be taught by your elders. Because in Vodou there are both right ways and wrong ways, there are certain taboos, and there are spirits you don’t want to serve unless you have obtained a certain level of initiation or have the guidance of someone who has. That’s just how it is, and if you want to respect the Lwa, you follow our traditions.

The fact is that you can build the most beautiful altar around, spend lavishly on all the biggest statues and candles and satin tablecloths and so on, and you may still not have the spirit’s attention let alone walk with that Lwa. The practitioner down the road who you’ve looked down on, because all he has is a bare wooden table, a candle and a glass of water, might have astronger connection to the spirits than you do, because he’s put the work in. Serving the Lwa is about more than throwing money at an altar!

In fact if you have not worked to establish your connections, if you do not know who you walk with and exactly how to serve them, spending money on your altar is exactly the same as throwing money away.

And nobody wants to do that, right?

Differences in Las 21 Divisiones

SANSE-21 DIVISIONS – BEING A CO CREATOR IN YOUR LIFE

General Thoughts Today:

I was doing a consultation earlier today for someone who was an Initiate in another House. I’m not going to go into too many details, but I see it all the time. And I want to share some of my thoughts on some of the things I often see happen.

Being Co- Creator in your life:

Alot of Vodouisants, or aspiring/budding Spiritualist (any path), I often see rely solely on the Spirits to create their life for them. They fall into the trap of only doing a small percent of their part of the work.

What do I mean by this?

It is often that they make their offerings, regularly serve their Spirits, etc, but that they do not take the physical world steps necessary to make or create the change that they desire. God helps those who help themselves. Yes, it is so. Making the offerings, working the wanga, etc is all well and good, and it will definitely help you and make everything easier to come/go along. But one must also take the Physical world steps necessary to achieve/attain one’s goal. And often, when trying to reach a goal, there are many.

Many of these steps are steps that the Spirit cannot do for you. They are ones you must do and make for yourself. If you are looking for love, you must go out more, you must be more approachable and friendly when you are out, etc, just as if looking for a job, you would need to have the knowledge and experience necessary to attain it in the first place, secondly do well in your interview and most importantly — put in that application.

Remember, the Spirits will help you, but it is your life, and you are the one with the power to decide, and ultimately it is your choice, what you will do and what steps you will or will not take to get to your goal.

Luck
