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?






Hey All,
I am back. This is Papa Hector. I am here to teach you more about Psychic Stuff, your future, Medium ship and everything else that has to do with spell casting, spiritualism, Sanse, Vodou. And today what I want to discuss is a very important topic to discuss because that is something heavily misunderstood by people who are not in the spiritual development or working towards spiritual development.
Ok, so it’s your future. I wrote it a bit crazy here (demonstrating something in the video) as I wanted you to see what I am about to do here because this is some real stuff that people really aren’t’t going to give to you and people don’t really explain this to you and is something that would take you a little while to learn on your own .
Now when it comes to your future, then you as a human being what differentiates you and makes you so special as a person is that you have the power of choice and you have the power of free will. Now when we are doing spells, what we are doing is we are affecting free will and choices and everything else and we are influencing things but what I want to get into before that is your life, ok?
So your life for a psychic or a spiritual worker is almost like the best way I can describe is a map, ok and what you have is a whole bunch of roads. Each of this lines represent roads and paths that one can take, you understand? That one can take in life and when you come to the psychic, spiritual worker, the medium, the healer, the spiritual worker whoever it is that you should go to. You are lets say right here. On this road, on this path you are here. This is you, ok? That’s where you are at.
Right here you are at a cross road due to a certain situation or certain topic or path in your life, ok? And the spiritual worker sees a number of paths that are possible to be taken. This is what a Psychic sees. This is what the future consists of. Let’s say, back here is your path or your past (your past path). This is where you have already walked and you have already traversed on the map, Ok? These are things you have already done, Ok? This is where you have already been before in your past.
This when a psychic worker or reader sees it is very consistent. This is what it is, it is the past and it is something that has already happened. There is not much that can be changed about it. It is the future that we are going to discuss, right? So that is what a lot of us will see first and that is what is going to show you that there is a good connection with your psychic or medium or spiritual worker. They should be able to give you some details about your past and what is going on with your situation, your past and your case.
Now the future though presents itself as a number of roads and when a psychic or medium sees the future for you what they see is actually the road most likely to be taken. The most likely road that you can take as a person and let’s say in your particular case that might be this road going straight up. It is that red line which is going straight up. But as a human being and as a person, you have choices in life. That is one of the beauties of being human. You have free will and that is something that GOD granted to you to be able to make choices and decisions as to where you want your life and path to head. Now as you can see, as you walk up into the map of your future there continues to be more and more paths and roads that can be taken. What the psychic is seeing is that what is it that is most likely to occur or happen and what is the most likely path. But as a person you have the power to control your life. You are the key in your life. You are in the driver’s set of your life and that is one of the beauties that GOD gave to us as human being. That means you have choices and decisions that you can make to change the path that you are heading on and other things that you can do to change the path that you are headed on. So depending on what you choose, even though a psychic sees that you are most likely to take the path that say is going straight up there and through here, you have choices. So if you choose to go somewhere along this path or deviate from this path where the most energy shows for you to travel, you can deviate and travel. This is one of the reasons why we have spells to begin with. You can choose a different path and deviate and go towards another goal, say your heart. Lets assume that the heart (on the diagram) is the goal that you want to reach and by the choices and decision in life you can change the path that you want to take in life and also change the direction of your life and also the direction of life’s of people around you.
This is why the future is something that a lot psychic will tell you is not set in stone. It is something that is changeable and on each of these paths no matter which one you take, there are different things that you are going to come across on these paths. There are other people in life who are also taking this path. So that is going to be another topic because I want to do a video soon about love spells and paths in life.
Now what you have to understand is that there are paths in life and the psychic sees the most likely path but that does not mean that you cannot choose to change the path in your life and change the path that you are headed on and depending on your choices and decisions even if you want to traverse the most likely path and you are making choices and decisions and doing things in your life that is contradicting the path that you want to walk, it will most likely set you on different places in the path and also take you off the path.
Now along this entire path we have to also take into consideration that with every path no matter where it is, some are going to have more obstacles (represent by the letter O) or blockages (represented by the letter B) compared to the other paths. Those obstacles or blockages can make getting to an end goal, say a financial upliftment more difficult. Now say you are traversing the path where there is going to be lots of obstacles, it may take you a lot longer to get there. And depending again on the choices and decisions that you make will depend on how fast you can get to the end goal and where you will end up at. Your life is all about choices. That is GOD’s gift to you in the form of free will and he has given it to everyone else as well.
Now along with these obstacles there will also be shortcuts. One way to a shortcut is sometimes through spell work or spiritual work. There will be early ways, there will be detours This detours have to be made sometimes in order to get where one needs to go. So I hope now you understand how the future works because what this means is when you get a psychic reading, you can choose whether or not you want to accept the path that has been predicted to you in the future. You can start to make choices or decisions and make proper steps towards the goal where you want to reach and when a psychic tells you the future, it is not set in stone.
Now if a psychic tells you that you are going to get a job in 6 months from now, this is what they are seeing that does not mean that necessarily that it is set in stone. Other things can come in your path. And to give you a clue and an example there are other people on these paths. Let’s say you are told that you will be working at a bank six months from now. To get to where you are now (say point A) and to the job at the bank (say point B) you take a longer path. Say you cross path with Job Loe and Job Loe is working on this path and say he cuts you off here. Here is where you guys cross paths and the two of you meet and Job Loe provides you with an opportunity or a chance or a different type of job that you can take. Maybe he is the hiring manager at a retail store. So he shows you the opportunity and tells you about the opportunity and you make the choice to take up on that opportunity. So instead of continuing to traverse down this path, where you would have been you start going down this path with Job Loe and then you head up this way and that way, etc.
So you can choose to change paths in life and so the psychic is telling you what path they see what they see is that at this time, in the current moment, in the present if you continue the way you are going and the energies continue developing the way they are going this is the way that things will lead within a certain whatever time period. So that is where it is going to lead. However, you can make choice and decisions on this path, and other people can make choices and decisions on this path or you can meet obstacles and blockages on this path and this can change the way the path has been set up and you instead of taking the original path, there are plenty of options or paths for a person to change paths or courses in their life. So the future is never set in stone and that is part of the reasons why we are able to do spells because a psychic may see that you know this is the most likely path and say it is not a job getting but maybe it is some sort of loss of work that is coming here. That is where you are headed, to loose your job.
Spells or magic can help influence other people as well as influence your path so instead when you get here you go this way instead of that way and by going this way let’s say your job is secure.
So this is very important to understand otherwise you may become disappointed with these spiritual things because you might think that things are set in stone but they are not and it is very important that our choices and decisions and our actions all support the goal that we are trying to reach.
I hope this has helped you in some form, shape or way. I hope that all the spirits may guide you and protect you I will speak with you soon. GOD BLESS.

St. Barbara- Chango

las 21 divisiones sanse haitian vodou chango

St. Barbara is a very well known and popular Saint within the Afro Carribean traditions.  She can be seen all over the islands doing her powerful and magical work.

The feast day of St. Barbara is December 4th.

In Haitian Vodou, St. Barbara is seen as Mambo Lemiye.  The mother of the Nago Nation, or Nasyon Nago.  Here we find St. Barbara as the mother of the Ogous, the warriors.  And as a mother of warriors, you have to be a pretty strong woman yourself!    In Vodou, Mambo Lemiye walks on the shore.  She is a Mystery that works with both water and fire and is able to work in the Sea.

She is called upon for when seeking protection against fire, sickness and when one is struggling with enemies.  She can neutralize those that come to harm you.  We give her a cup and a sword so that she can work.

In the 21 Divisiones, or Las 21 Divisiones, St. Barbara serves to represent the Mystery or Misterio known as Chango.  As a warrior, we know that with Chango’s help we can overcome that which seems impossible.  Chango is the ruler over lightening and thunder and can protect us from these as well.   We can go to Chango when we are facing very strong opposition and can be sure that he will help us in our mission.

In Sanse, St. Barbara encompases a number of different Misterios and Sanses.

In my lineage we recognize St. Barbara as a number of different Misterios that work within that image.  We often say that St. Barbara spends six months as a male and six months as a female.  That is why we also say that St. Barbara protects those that are transgendered or cross dress.

chango sanse sance las 21 divisiones

We recognize that St. Barbara as a male is Chango.  And Chango is a spirit of protection, of magick and of wealth.  He can assist us in any battle as he is a very strong warrior.  For this purpose, we use the image of St. Barbara on a horse as seen above.  We will also frequently use the image of Chango Macho to represent this path or punto of St. Barbara.

Chango Macho

As a spirit of luck, wealth and prosperity, we often petition Chango Macho for help in business, employment and gambling luck.  A special punto of Chango Macho is prepared by Sancistas in a small wooden box to bring in luck and prosperity.

In her female form, we recognize her as Ezili Shango Pye.  She is a powerful warrior as usual, but is also able to assist us in attaining love and helping us with issues within our relationships.  She is called upon to bring in passion when a relationship is fizzling or dying out.

Ezili Shango Pye

Above, you will see the image that we use to represent Ezili Shango Pye.  In dreams, she often appear as an Indian woman, who has large round brown eyes, olive skin and wears a long white dress.  She wears a red mantle over this dress and often a crown.

In all of her aspects, she is served with the colors red and white.  She is fond of red apples, bananas, mangos and Papaya.  She also loves red flowers.

Que Viva Chango Senores!

 psychic readings, psychic vision, psychic abilities, psychic, psychic dreams

Dreams are a gateway into the Spiritual World and allow us to receive guidance and communications from the Spirits and Entities on the other side.  Dreams can also help us to grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally and morally to become different people.  Dreams have a deep impact on our minds and can be used to create change, but also as a gateway into the Spiritual Realms.

Dreaming is one of the many Spiritual Faculties or Abilities that one may possess.  I am sure that many of you have already heard, known or maybe even expierenced cases in which a dream was a premonition to some event that was to occur, or predicted something significant for the individual who had the dream, and sometimes others.

Many know the practice of getting winning lotto numbers from a dream.  This is something that is practiced and held true within many different cultures throughout the world.  This is another case in which dreams are messages, trips or revelations from the Spiritual world.


psychic dreams, psychic, psychic abilites, psychic readings, sanse, las 21 divisiones, mediums, mediumship

Dreams can be portals for the Spiritual Realms.

There is also the ability to spiritually travel (astral travel) within one’s dreams to find out significant information, reveal the future, understand some past event, or to do some other work on the other side, or in the Spiritual World.  This is another spiritual ability or faculty that can be developed by developing one’s spiritual gifts.

God, the Ancestors, the Dead, the Spiritual Guides, Misterios and Saints have all been known at one time or another to communicate to people via dreams.  In fact, it is one of the most important and significant ways in which they relay messages to us.  Sometimes these dreams are very direct and easy to comprehend.  At other times, these dreams can difficult to understand and may need some interpretation.

The first thing to build up yourself and your spiritual dreaming ability is to recognize it’s importance in the first place.    Secondly is to attain a dream journal.  You must write down all your dreams as soon as you wake up in the morning.  This is important, because it will reinforce the first thing, and secondly it will give you an important record that you can refer back to at any time and point.

Physically writing it is also important, as it will allow the significance to sink into you.  When you first awaken in the morning, do not speak to anyone.  Do not get out of bed.  Have your dream journal next to your bed, with a pen, before going to bed.  Immediately write down your dream.  This is very important.   Then you can write the date at the bottom.

You can start using your dream journal right away, even before following all of the other steps below.  Because the faster you begin using it, the better your ability to remember your dreams and remember them clearly will become.

Thirdly, it is very important to get proper rest.  You will not be able to dream properly, if you do not sleep properly.  This is because your body needs to recuperate itself fully before it can dedicate other energy into dreaming.  So make sure that you are getting the proper amount of sleep that you need.

Fourthly, it is very very important that  you keep yourself and the room where you sleep spiritually clean.  Keeping the environment with a High Current, or Vibration, will make it easier for the Spirits to communicate with you.  Spiritually cleansing the room by sprinkling  Florida water around the room, and incensing the room out with  frankincense before bed is good way to do this.

Fifth, it important thing is that you don’t sleep with the tv/radio or other electrical devices on.  This does not allow the mind to properly rest and get the deep sleep that you need in order for your body to repair itself optimally.  Also the information from the tv/radio may seep into your dreams and cause confusion in the dream.

Once you have done all the above, you have everything set into place for success.

When it comes to dreaming, it is important to recognize that not all dreams will be spiritually significant.  Some dreams are just the mind clearing itself out of all the negativity, garbage and other unnecessary information our brains are carrying.  A spiritually significant dream is often very vivid.  The dream seems real.

So real in fact, that sometimes you may wake up and question whether or not it really happened.  Also a spiritually significant dream may directly let you know, in one way or another, that it is a message from the spiritual world.

Also, there will be times when the meaning is very direct and clear.  Yet, there will also be times where it will need to be interpreted, and the meaning or message is not clear.   Sometimes symbols will be used and you must interpret the symbolism given during the dream.  It is important to understand that many times symbolism in a dream is very personal.  It is best to understand the dream by thinking of what the different symbols mean to you.

Sometimes it will be a while before you understand the message behind the dream.  If it is very confusing, I suggest using the technique with Santa Clara given below.  However, you may also want to forget about it for a few days to a week and return to it later.  This should be done first, because often times given a little time, the meaning of the dream will come to us.  Or another dream will come to clarify the first one.

There are many techniques and practices that we use to clarify and enhance dreaming.

First and one of the most popular is to petition St. Claire, or Santa Clara,  for clarity. this is done with a glass of water, an egg white and a white candle.  It is also good to have an image of St. Claire and her prayer.   The glass should be clear and free of any markings, indentations or designs.

sanse-sance-las 21 divisiones santa clara  saint claire

The first thing is to have all of your materials together.  Light your white candle and say the Prayer to St. Claire. (Her Prayer is at the bottom of this post for you)   Make your petition asking for clarity.  As you make your petition, put the white of one egg into the glass of water.    Continue to ask St. Claire to give you clarity in your dreams and to help you understand your dreams better.

Let the candle burn out then go to bed.  The glass with the egg white should be near your bed, like on a night stand.  You can dispose of in three days by tossing this outside.

Another technique to increase the quantity and quality of your dreams that is popular is to take a glass of water and put a square of camphor in it.  Then place this under your bed, where the head lies.  This should be replaced once a week.  Also lighting a candle and speaking to St. Claire while preparing this is a very good idea.

Giving one self a series of Spiritual Cleansing baths will also help enhance dreaming and is recommended to do regularly anyway.  It is always good to keep oneself spiritually clean.  A simple spiritual cleansing bath is often enough to enhance one’s ability to dream.

.Another way, especially if you have lots of difficulty remembering your dreams, understanding your dreams, or connecting spiritually is to have your head washed by a Sancista, Papa, Mama,  Medium or Priest.   This is a special ceremony that is done to give a Punto of Clarity.   Not everyone can do this, so make sure to seek out the proper individual to do this for you.
Papa Hector
Prayer to St. Claire
O Glorious St. Claire! God has given you the power of working miracles continually, and the favor of answering the prayers of those who invoke your assistance in misfortune, anxiety, and distress. We beseech you, obtain from Jesus through Mary His Blessed Mother, what we beg of you so fervently and hopefully, (mention your petition) if it be for the greater honor and glory of God and for the good of our souls.   Amen.

Spiritual Thoughts and Observances by Papa Hector




Lwa, Saints, Spirits, Misterios and Even God are here to guide and direct you. . . not control you. You either take their advice/direction or you don’t . . . . but as a result of your actions are the consequences. They are not here to live your life for you or to make everything a bed of roses all the time, they are here to help you, guide you, direct you but not control all aspects of your life. That is why God gave you free will.

So  many people think that when the Spirits speak, and they tell you what to do, one can pick and choose what to do. They want to pick the parts that they like, or are convenient, comfortable and easy, and not do the parts that they find hard, difficult, require work or effort. If that is the case, then you cannot blame the Spirit for the effects of your choices. For you are the cause of those effects.

You are in the driver’s seat in your life. It is you who controls what you are going to do and when . . . .it is you who makes the decisions. So stop blaming others when things go wrong, when things don’t go your way or don’t work out . . . you set the stage and the tone for what happens, it is no one’s fault but your own.

If you don’t want to change your life, no amount of spiritual work can change it for you. If you don’t want to improve yourself, no spirit can force you to do so. In life, you are dealt a set of cards (like in poker) some you can change out, others you can’t and you just have to deal with them and learn to work with them. Everything is not resolvable or can be made to how you want it, some things just are. Learning to accept this and work with it, is a sign of true spiritual growth . . . .

Many are quick to blame the Houngan/Mambo/Priest when they don’t get what they want or are not living life on cloud 9, but at the end of the day, the Priest can only help you, in the end, as I stated before . . . you are the one who makes the decisions and choices in your life, you are the driver. The Priest can only work with what you give him. If you give him lemons, he makes you lemonade . . . if you give him a limo, he gives you a limo service. . . .

Also. . . . . Priests, Houngans, Mambos, Awos, etc . . . they have lives of their own to lead and their own path to follow, also need to continue on their path of growth and evolution. That means that they cannot be there for you all the time, some things you must deal with on your own, they are not there to be used, abused, harassed and hounded with your issues, as if they have nothing else to do . . . if you really love your priest, you will give him/her time to have his/her own life. Especially since 95% of his/her time is dedicated to helping others. Giving him 5% to himself is the least you can do.

I believe all Spiritual People and people going on to be on the spiritual path should really read the Gospel According to Spiritism. . . . it will give you a firm foundation of Spiritual things, a great understanding and will help you when you go to seek spiritual help and clue you into the reality of what can be done and what cannot.

I have provided a free place where you can download books on Spiritism Here:

Hope this Spiritual Knowledge has helped you in some way,
