[quote=“Euoi, post:1, topic:2968”]A limpia is a cleansing ritual that cleanses of negativity, sickness, and curses. The following is a very simple version utilizing an egg. There are more complex versions with accompanying rites to dispel stronger shit, but those are better taught in person for it to be done correctly.
Anyhow, some of ya will probably find this useful when you got someone giving you the mal de ojo (evil eye) or if you have a coldor something.
Take a raw, unused egg. Completely virgin. Wash it in a bowl of holy water and allow it to get to room temperature. Then gently place it upon the crown of your head abd begin rubbing it, spiraling out counterclockwise while focusing on the negative energy being absorbed by the egg. Now rub the egg over your face in the shape of the cross, saying thelLord’s prayer (or apostle’s creed, or hail Mary). Make the sign of the cross over your third eye. Over the throat, neck, back, thigh, shins, and feet. Everywhere basically, always working downwards. Even the back of the legs have to be touched. Finish off with the soles of the feet.
Take the egg and crack it on the side of the toilet and flush it down In the name of the father, son, and holy spirit.
This is an example of Mexican curanderism, which I know is far removed from what most of this forum professes to practice, but may as will introduce some flavor here.[/quote]
My mother taught me about that ritual from her Shamanic Journeys in Mexico. She told me stories when I was a kid about how she had crazy experiences after cleansing the houses of certain notorious people, once they had new owners. These aren’t affairs I really want to namedrop on, seeing how I live in “cartel city”. She told me about her time with a famous psychic/curandera who was known for finding lost children. This woman taught her a lot of crazy things, including stuff with the egg.
She impressed upon me how useful eggs were, and that they could absorb all kinds of negativity like you say.
She even said when they’d do that over a group of people and the egg was cracked, it came out totally fucking black.
I think that shit is pretty awesome, if you have a shamanic tradition as powerful as that to draw on, I wouldn’t sound so disappointed about being “one of those Mexicans”. My mom always told me how bad ass you guys really were, and she lived in your country for years. She also came from a family who used magick, so she knew what real shit looks like.
Don’t let people make you feel ashamed for your heritage. The country I live in perpetually wants to wipe thousands of years of history of my ancestors out by bombing the shit out of them. I know they treat us that way in part because there’s power in these traditions, and they want everyone to deny their connections to who they are as a people, because then you are easy to manipulate, because you don’t know who you are. Or where you come from. So it’s easy to point you in the wrong direction, because you don’t have any compass to guide you where to go.
I got a bit of white boy in me, but I have a lot of Persian in me too. And let me tell you, those people are the reason we even call people “magicians” at all. People try to make me feel ashamed of my heritage all the time by calling me a “fucking terrorist” or a “sand nigger” to my face. But I take that to the bank, because I know about the blood of my ancestors that flows through my veins, and the power I draw on through it.
I know my ancestors did amazing shit, while their ancestors lived in mud huts in Europe, and owe their progress to exploiting every other race on the planet, stealing all their wealth, and destroying all their culture as best they could. They dismantled entire civilizations and now talk shit about them and their peoples, like it was a good thing they are gone, and their culture destroyed. Well, looks to me like they fucked this place up pretty good themselves after they robbed, raped, and killed everyone else who was doing fine without them.
Not to hijack your thread though, I’m just saying keep on keeping on, you’re doing some amazing shit, and that’s a good place to be if you’re only 15 like you claimed before. Looks like you have a wonderful road ahead of you to be honest, cause you picked up a good tradition early. Wait till you see where it leads you in a few short years, you’ll be happy you picked it up so early, especially when you put in serious time in the future. This is some real fucking magick, and I hope you enjoy your adventure to godhood, or wherever your journey takes you.
Best of Luck,
