Short prayer dedicated to Obatalá to intercede for us:
Great and respected Orisha, creator of all, king and owner of purity and of all vigilantes. Loving father of the world, my protector, merciful before you, I bow down so that I never lack your love, protection, stability and health.
For 8 days I will cleanse myself with this coconut so that it frees me from all the bad things and restores my body and soul.
Thank you my beautiful father for helping me face my need (make special request).
Let's do ebo! A very powerful coconut cleanse:
Take the coconut in your hand and starting with your head and ending with your feet, pass the fruit all over your body, that is,cleaning goes in this order:
- Head, neck, back, breasts, chest, both arms, stomach, both legs, and ends at the feet.
After the coconut reaches the feet, it should not return upwards, place it on the plate and turn off the candles giving thanks to the orisha.
Keep in mind that every day, for 8 consecutive days, you must light the candles for a while and talk to the orisha about what you need to achieve.
Religious tips to keep in mind:
- I recommend being in the shower when cleaning is done and wearing white or light colors.
- After 8 days (it can also be 16, depending on your problem or state of health), that is, when you see that your request is improving, take the offering to the mountain.aña, a hill or some elevation of land, and leave him with 8 cents of right.
May Baba's blessing always be with you and that when you do this ritual everything you want comes into your life with development, health and love.
