Oggún is a warrior Osha of the Yoruba pantheon that represents tenacity, firmness and constant work, owns power tools such as chains and tools, and also leads everything related to technology.
In Santeria or the Rule of Osha, Oggún always goes to the side of his warrior brothers Elegguá, Oshosi and Osun, and with his determination to win, he solves what he proposes.
How will this ebbó help us in our lives?
This ebbó or cleaning with Ogún is simple, but effective. You will use powerful elements so that the warrior opens the paths.
Sometimes obstacles keep us from moving forwardWhether they are health problems, money, love and even family situations that keep us stagnant, unable to achieve what we set out to do.
As religious, and devotees of the orishas we must take into account that many times the negative energies that surround us hinder our spiritual growth, and we are responsible for taking care of cleaning and purifying ourselves so that the path opens.
Remember: I always advise them that in each work, offering or cleaning that is done they must be accompanied byañatwo by faith, without it nothing is possible.
Ingredients you need:
- 1 sweet potato (also known as sweet potato, moniato, potato, or sweet potato)
- Corojo butter
- Smoked hutia
- Smoked fish
- 1 candle
- 3 cents
Oggún will help us move forward in life with this ritual. How is it done?
- First, you wash the sweet potato and roast it with corojo butter.
- When finished, you let it cool and add smoked jutía and smoked fish on top.
- You light the candle to Oggún, ask for your blessing and blow tobacco smoke and brandy.
- Then you put the sweet potato on top of Oggún.
- Make your prayer to Oggún and give him knowledge that on the third day you will cleanse yourself with that fruit.
Every day you must light the candle for a while, and you can choose this time to meditate, talk with the orisha and make your heartfelt requests.
On the third day you clean yourself with that sweet potato from head to toe and put it in a cartridge or brown paper, wrap it and also add a little smoked jutia and smoked fish.
You will go to a crossroads, that is, to a crossroads and you bury it there, always asking for its blessing and giving thanks, you can also invoke it with a prayer, we leave you one below.
Remember, with the three cents you will clean yourself and it will be left right there as a right.
I hope that as soon as you do this Ebbó with Ogún, the blessing of the orisha will take care of you and protect you as always, and above all you get a lot of health, that the rest comes alone. Blessings.
