So I went to a local Santo, he made me to go a cemetery with him and sacrifice an animal ( details of which I can give ) if someone can explain to me what happened. We basically took the dead animal and left it at a random grave in a plastic bag.?? And he made me say my prayers and wishes over it. Please lmk if there is anyone who can clarify what just happened ? Was it a scam or was this legit ?
according to the information you gave.
Have a look into the traditional roots,
for further understanding.
a even simpler take on it.
You know, usually people ask the caster all the details… Especially when there’s a life sacrifice…
I know but he wouldn’t answer my questions properly and spoke very little English. Plus there were 2 other people with us who were doing the same thing.
I was under the impression that in order to be initiated into Santeria you must first do a Divination, and a few other things?
I could be wrong. I’m not a Santo
Well the death of the animal empowers a contact with the old Gods, blood is a powerful elixir. That ritual was for protection or something similar for 1 to 3 years right?
Good that for vegetarians and vegan there are grimoires based on herbs!!
It was a love spell !!
What did he tell you?
Hey there. So, in Santeria and all the traditions that are related to it, this a common practice. Animal sacrifice and having to leave the animal somewhere, sometimes but not always in a cemetry…however, I’ve never had it done with multiple people at once…this part seems slightly suspect to me but isn’t necessarily something that I would say run for the hills!
Overall, (With the very little info you gave) it sounds legit enough. The true test will be to see the results.
My question is how much did he charge you?
Santeria is spawned from an African Tradition called IFa in which the belief is that NOTHING can be accomplished without sacrifice and sacrifice fixes all. So yes, that is legit. The animal takes on what ever negative or adverse energies. When you take it to the graveyard or wherever else you are offering it up to be taken away from you.
This is VERY basic but I hope that helps!
