What is the Eleguá Garabato for?
The doodle of the orisha Eleguá as an element of power has a great ashé, positive and protective energy, it is the weapon that the orisha uses to make his way through the thick of the mountain, as well as our paths when they have obstacles and negative situations.
Therefore, when used in this simple, but powerful ritual, it will bring you a lot of prosperity, opening paths of strength and unfoldment, and warding off all kinds of osogbo, misfortune, enemies and evil.
You will always have these scribbles at the foot of Elegguá:
- You leave the candle until it burns out, you can sit next to it to talk with the orisha.
Every Monday, which are the days to attend Elegguá you take the scribbles in your hands and do the action of pulling towards yourself, saying the prayer and blowing brandy and tobacco smoke again.
Trust Eleguá and do it every Monday you want, you can always leave them there with the orisha, so that it works as a protective shield.
Ashé for you, and may everything beautiful open up and stay with you, especially health and love, blessings.
