Earlier this year, I was traveling back home from running an errand, and I decided from where I was located to take a convenient bus ride that would leave me within a reasonable distance from a Botanica store that I use to frequent.
So, from there, I went and headed to my destination. I wanted to pick up a few candles.
While I waited on line to purchase my items I observed a woman who had her young son present, being helped by a staff member who worked inside of the Botanica store.
One of the women staff was aiding the customer within the specifics of a voodoo/black magic ritual.
I watched the woman hand over a few hundreds of dollars for the spell and for the materials to go along with the voodoo/black magic ritual.
The staff member behind the counter told the woman how to write her lover’s name over parchment paper, and how to put certain things inside of his sneakers/shoes, to control his attitude toward her.
From what I heard through the customer and staff member’s discussion, the woman’s boyfriend was cheating on her with another woman while also treating her with savage disrespect, and taking money from her, to support and entertain his other woman.
Why would anyone want to continue on in a relationship with someone who would behave so rudely and cruel toward them?
Then, go through the length of spending volumes of money, in which should be used for a constructive purpose, in a desperate attempt to deceptively change that person, and to manipulate both of their situations by trying out voodoo/black magic?
I could not imagine wasting any of my time or money on such an absurd circumstance. However, I’m a logical and reasonable individual.
As a genuinely spiritually inclined woman myself who was born with the gifts of extra sensory perception, and an authentic natural power of occult, I’d never use any of my faculties in such an irresponsible or irreverent way.
In doing any type of spiritual work one should operate on a rational and justifiable basis.
Their essence must include knowledge and foresight within judgment in accordance to the nature and origin of one’s own spirituality as well as to the aspects of their own state of being.
Connecting to the universe on unaligned and unbalanced grounds serves no relevance unto the purpose of significant manifestation.
When one intends to further delve into a condition with the intent to endure an intention that was not right to begin with, the outward result never ends up as what was intended.
When spiritual work is done in harmony to the tune of a melody sung within rhythm to the beat, each of our notes play to the music, creating a sound for us to energetically dance to.
When I consult my Orisha Elegba/Eleggua the lyrics consistently speak volume, and his splendid album never scratches or skips off track, the needle to the phonograph is constantly on point.
