In the Rule of Osha-Ifá (better known as Santeria), the rituals, offerings and spells on behalf of the Orishas and Eggun (spirits and ancestors), are carried out with the intention of seeking help, guidance, protection, healing or success in different aspects of life. .
In the first instance, if you decide to practice spiritual rituals, it is important to do so with respect and seriousness, to follow the proper steps and to take into account the possible consequences of your actions in daily life and in the spiritual realm. as they say out there, "The one who knows does not pay the same as the one who does not know", we must take responsibility when we do religious things.
My answer is: “Santeria jobs do work”, and it is that the effectiveness of the rituals cannot be denied because they are done incorrectly, without forgetting that the belief in their power and efficacy it's a matter of faith and it depends on the trust you place and the individual experiences of each person.
It is also important to remember that this does not exist only in the Yoruba religion, many ritual, spiritual and religious practices have been used for centuries by various cultures and communities to connect with the divine, cultivate inner peace, promote emotional and physical healing, and achieve other goals.
What does it depend on for a ritual or religious work to be effective?
These works can be effective, but their effectiveness can vary depending on several factors, such as the intention, the quality of the ritual, and the connection we establish with the Orishas and Eggun (spirits).
The effectiveness of a ritual, such as baths, offerings, cleanings or spoils, may be related to the strength of the person's intention and the energy that is put into the process.
What entities do we connect with in Santeria rituals?
The Osha-Ifá Rule focuses on the connection with the ancestors (Eggun) and with the Orishas, which are divine spirits that represent different aspects of nature and human life.
The Orishas provide energy and help people to overcome problems and challenges. Each Orisha has her own personality, abilities, and weaknesses, and can be invoked to seek her help and guidance in different situations, providing positive energy, wisdom, and protection. The Orishas can be invoked to seek her help in different aspects of life.
For example, we can call:
- Orisha Obatala, who represents peace, clarity and wisdom, when we need to solve problems or make important decisions.
- Yoruba goddess Oshun, who represents beauty, love and fertility, when we seek love or success in business.
- Orishas like Shango, Yemaya, Eleggua, among others, they also have their own areas of influence and help people in different aspects of life, and open paths.
How do you ask Orishas and Eggunes for help?
We ask for your help through ceremonies, offerings and rituals that are performed in your honor. These may include offerings of food, drink, and other sacred items, as well as singing, dancing, and other religious practices. By performing these rituals and offering offerings to the Orishas, you can win their favor and receive their help and protection.

It is important to note that, in our Yoruba religion, like any other spiritual practice, should not be used to harm to others or to manipulate people. However, as with any religious practice, there may be some exceptions where religion is used inappropriately.
The important thing to remember is that: There is no bad religion, only bad religious.
