St. Martha has followers all over the world.
The power of the serpent has been a sacred symbol and recognised by shamanic traditions since the beginning of time. Ancient cultures both feared and revered the serpent.
The Symbol of the serpent has come to mean many things and symbolize various powers-circumstances in life such as:
As snakes shed their skin through sloughing, they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing.
In some cultures, the Serpent represents the Kundalini. The basic creative life force that is held within each person.
In other cultures, snakes symbolized the umbilical cord, joining all humans to Mother Earth.
Serpents are represented as potent guardians of temples and other sacred spaces
In Africa the chief centre of serpent worship was Dahomey
And I could go on and on and on. . . . .
St. Martha is a powerful dominator of the spiritual plane.
By the dictionary definition to dominate is to:
have a commanding influence on; exercise control over.
St Martha teaches her servants how to dominate themselves and the world around them.
Fact is he who has the dominant force in a place controls the flow of things in that space or situation. We are all dominated by the forces around us.
We have all been exposed to this phenomenon. No one is exempt to this law. . . .
So I will be teaching a special workshop on St. Martha and her Mysterious powers on:
On Monday February 8th @ 1 PM EST

In the 21 Divisions and in Sanse we recognise St martha as Filomena
Lubana. …The Mystery of the Serpents, Domination,and the Queen of the
She is a much feared, revered, honoured and respected Mystery and she
has many many followers.
One thing that you will commonly witness in any cemetery in the
Dominican Republic is devotees of St Martha smoking cigars in her honor
or to ask her for a favor or her assistance. They will often have a
purple cloth tied around their neck. Mumbling prayers at the cemetery
with full confidence that she will help them achieve their goals.
LISTEN TO SOME MUSIC FOR ST. MARTHA HERE
And the request to her are many and various… People seek her aid in
all types of situations….
Some come to ask to dominate their lovers, return a husband or
relationship, or attract sex and desire. others are looking to overcome
some blockage or problem that lies in their path. Still yet others
looking need help in overcoming their enemies, evil spirits, or other
issues that plagued them.
The grave where she is honored and worshipped will often be clearly
marked. In some Cemeteries, decorated with her image and painted purple.
Yet in other cemeteries, you will watch many candles burning brightly
before the cross that has been erected in dedication of her service.
Many individuals who have never worked magic or done anything ever of a
spiritual nature will often remarks at how quickly powerfully and
immediately the response that they received from her when calling upon
her even the very first time. When St. Martha comes, her presence is
palatable, thick and obvious in it’s nature.

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?
This year is no different, just as every other year, we are excited to announce and give the annual Anaisa Ceremony in honor of the Special Mystery of Love, Joy, Gold and Seduction! For those of you who don’t already know, Anaisa is the Patroness of our Temple and we all owe her so much! She is known for her swiftness in assisting those who are devoted to her and her children, for her extremely powerful psychic abilities, and naturally for her powers to induce love and seduce!
As we do every year, we will also be honoring her best friend, Saint Martha the Dominatrix. She who helps us dominate lovers as well as enemies, friends and foes, alike, this powerful Mystery is well known all over the world for her miracles and her powers.
If you would like to attend the ceremony, we are located in Berlin, NJ. Please contact us at email@example.com and Soley, my Godson, can give you the details. Please be aware, we are limited to the number of people that can attend due to space constraints. Also be aware that there will be a required donation to attend, which will go towards covering the costs of the ceremony.
Many ask me how they can be a part of the ceremony even if they can not attend. We are always happy to make offerings and give gifts to the Lwa on your behalf. You make a donation and we can do that for you. You can make a donation here:
If you owe an offering or gift to either of these two beautiful spirits, now is the time to make sure you have paid off your debts with them. Ensure that they are willing to help you and work with you in the future.
Lastly, many individuals often ask — Papa, I can’t afford your help, how can I get help from the Spirits still? . . . Here is your answer and solution. Make an offering to the Spirit, although it won’t be the same as having a spell or ritual done, the Spirits recognize a good heart of faith, hope and charity and are often willing to help as long as we show a sign of our good faith, by making an offering or sacrifice of some sort!
Until Next Time,
Keep the Faith,
A powerful well known Saint and intercessor. There is a special place in my heart for St. Expedite. He has always been of great assistance to me in my life, the lives of my Godchildren and my clients. He is swift to assist one in life, and easy to keep happy so long as you keep your word.
We also know him as Papa Gede Limbo, and he is a powerful leader over the dead in the Cemetery. He is one of my special patrons. . . and I could go into tons of stories of how many times he has assisted me.
He has saved me from fire, has helped me increase business, has protected me and my family members from car accidents, and always warns us whenever there is danger. He is a great protector and overseer.
Not sure if you missed it, but his special feast day was April 19th. I almost missed it myself!
But he made sure to remind me. And I am happy I didn’t miss it! I make sure to take care of him yearly on this date, as well as during Fete Gede that we hold annually. This year is no different.
I gave him his flowers, his candle, his cake and his coffee and of course, his cigarettes. St. Expedite is a very understanding and easy to deal with Spirit, he loves to help!. But like most, he helps his friends most readily.
So if St. Expedite has helped you at all, or if you need his help, give him his candle and his drink. I am sure he will be there for you just as he has for me.
The following prayer is a special one to me that I use to call upon St. Expedite, enjoy:
Saint Expedite, you lay in rest.
I come to you and ask that
this wish be granted.
(State your request)
Expedite now what I ask of you.
Expedite now what I want of you,
this very second.
Don’t waste another day.
Give me what I ask for.
I know your power,
I know you because of your work.
I know you can do it.
Do this for me and I’ll
spread your name with love and honor
and cause your name to be invoked.
Expedite this wish with speed, love,
honor, and goodness.
Glory to you, Saint Expedite!
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.
