In the Yoruba religion, rituals connect us with our spirituality and the energy of the Orishas, deities that with their power transcend all dark and disturbing vibrations.
By doing rituals and having faith in their results, these help us unblock situations in which we have closed roads, they cleanse us of negative energy and keep us away from evils, enemies and diseases.
In the Santería or Regla de Osha-Ifá rituals, which are also known as "works" have beneficial and healing effects, as long as they are accompanied byañatwo of love, faith and humility towards the Yoruba deities. These works are made mainly based on plants and food, along with other important religious elements such as the cascarilla, this is how offerings, baths, prayers are made. By invoking the power of the Yoruba gods, we ask that they intercede for us and favor us with health in mind, body and spirit.
Of these rituals, you may do some to the letter and adapt others to your own way, and that is fine, we should always guide us by our intuition and spiritualityThe important thing is to find out what works best for you.
Always remember that it is vital to create a positive environment before performing any ritual, as well as letting go of negative thoughts, setting your intention and thanking the deity you invoke before, trust the results and say It's done! Ashé for you.
