Thanks and Next
Thank you for any attention you were able to give to this Novena. And way beyond any thanks we can offer is the gratitude of the Dead who by the word of living human beings receive the Light needed to keep moving.
Yesterday evening the other speaker and I held a monthly observation (the 2nd of each month) dedicated to the Santa Muerte. The content of our ceremony naturally centered around the Novena (see pic above), gratitude, guidance, so forth. As you may already see we are aiming at transparency around the controversial, but oh so real, Santa Muerte. However, I’m going to save some of that detail for later, after I look over the questions I’m getting now.
For the record, there is a struggle among many traditional peoples. Do we share the secrets our ancestors died, both to keep for us and to keep us, or do we keep it to ourselves (which is what has kept us a living culture through 500 years of genocide)? As you may have already guessed, we believe it’s time to share our ancient science.
One theme we want to open in the near future, both in articles and classes, is the declaration that the traditional knowledge we handle (as limited as it may be in terms of how vast our traditions are) is quite apart from superstition or empty fantasy. Many times people call it magic, which we see simply as science we don’t understand, and we are grateful for Spirit to guide our hand. It has more to do we with the energies we catalyze into change, via a song or some smoke, than just faith.
Thank you so much for your participation at whatever level, and whenever, you were able to attend. We’ll see you soon. The last image is the altar after ceremony. We hit some of the offerings right away . El es Dios.
