I’m getting pretty excited about becoming a formal Espiritista! Formal as in initiated into Espiritismo. I will be able to do a lot of things. I’ll find out who my spiritual court is, most importantly. And then I’ll be able to read other people’s muertos, guides and such. I can do readings, hold misas. My godfather described it to me as “cool” as opposed to Palo as being “hot.” I can understand this. I have a feeling it will take me awhile to be initiated into Palo. I have to get the money for it. If I do well as an Espiritista, then I will probably be able to be initiated into Palo. I felt rushed at one point but now I don’t.
I know Palo is my home, as a religion. Nsasi is so close to me. I always feel him. That is why I immediately went to him for my husband’s employment gig. He is good for employment. I did the ritual today. All of the candles are burning well. Nsasi’s candle was treated extra special. I carved his firma into both sides, anointed it with palm oil and some other oils and rolled in herbs and powders. I love pull out candles in glass!
I’m just contemplating the power of this path. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. The magic is my own – I don’t have a system I use. Just my own boneyard smarts and the muertos. I get guided on what to do by them. Since I am a medium, I will go far in Espiritismo. It also makes ritual writing easier. Writing prayers and invocations is easier as well. If you need help writing a ritual, come to me and I’ll help!
Well, I’ve got some more to write later, perhaps. It is a horrible hot spell outside, so I won’t be doing much out there.
