And that means the Guédé end up smack dab in the middle of two other lwa. I know exactly what Bawon wants and I know exactly what he would like on it. Every aspect to what I do when I go to the cemetery to honor the locals here is one-hundred percent something relating to the Guédé. All Images and work on my blog are Copyrighted by me, Saundra Elise Turner Ziyatdinova of my blog Erzulie Red Eyes Art and Spirit. Every available wall space has been taken up with things like furniture and altars and living space.
Some loas such as Erzulie have both Rada and Petro manifestations. Something of interest that I found in this section of the book related to how the Guédé and the honored ancestors need to be kept apart when you honor them. He is too dangerous to anyone He has not chosen for himself. The birthday cake they served was chocolate on chocolate. Temples often leave a section to grow wild in his honor.
Point in case, he wanted me to do some research relating to my previous post and adding celebrations to my religious calendar. Why it has taken me this long to realize this is incredibly stupid and silly and ridiculous. And it was, but I still had to double and triple check that intuitive knowing that I had chosen incorrectly. She hints that he is a dark and sinister figure. The songs and dances are staccato, and when these Spirits come in possession they are unmistakeable. Like Loko, he is the loa of healing, knows the secrets of herbal medicine and the secrets of magic hidden in the plants. Sometimes, later, I find out that there is actually a word for what it is I am doing or that there is a specific action that is relating to what it is I have already been doing to serve my spirits.
Osim lečenja, i ovaj duh dobro poznaje magiju i sve tajne ovog ali i onog sveta, pa se često prikazuje i kao zaštitnik predaka, odnosno svih onih koji više nisu fizički prisutni ali čije duše svakako i dalje igraju važnu ulogu u okviru same zajednice. This particular epiphany related to the Guédé, of all nachon to be epiphany-ing about. I know quite a few Tumblr users who work with the whole music oracle. My favorite medium is Oil but I also love to work with graphite pencil, pastels, pen and ink. But there are days where the fact that I can surround myself with the lwa is infinitely more preferable than having to stop and learn under the tutelage of a human being who is as fallible as myself. Gran Bwa se u hrišćanstvu poistovećuje sa Svetim Sevastijanom. Sekhmet was fucking around with shit and wanted me to listen to the song.
But he is also big-hearted, loving, and fairly approachable. Sam Bwa je zamišljen kao duh koji nalikuje ogromnom, visokom i robusnom čoveku, koji je pritom bučan i obučen u braon ili zelenu boju ujedno i njegove omiljene boje. And I will absolutely fucking admit that I hate having to do that. Sledbenici zatim izvode ritualni ples pokriveni lišćem i sa štapovima u rukama, a smatra se da za to vreme Bwa samo nadgleda situaciju i spravlja napitke koje potom neprimetno ostavlja i odlazi svojim putem. When I am grave-tending, this is in honor of the Bawon, Maman, and Papa G. While I know that many established practitioners would read what I write and scoff heartily or would shake their heads or accuse me of something or other, I feel a certain type of safety in these kinds of moments.
I have no one to turn to when it comes to this shit. This made me realize that my constant failed attempts at blending the akhu veneration with the service for the Guédé is never going to work. And as someone who is as fearful of making mistakes on this path as I can be I find it odd how fearful I am with mistakes and the lwa and not nearly as so scared when it comes to my deities , I have a deep suspicion that this is the case. Some Rada loa are: Legba, Loco, Ayizan, Damballa, Ayida-Weddo, Erzulie, and Agwé. Some Images here are my older original paintings and drawings and some are my new originals. His movements are also snake-like and can include slithering along the ground, flicking his tongue, and climbing tall objects. They bask in the glow of their fabulous lives, their quirky interventions in our daily affairs, their epaulettes and torn bodices, the caprice of their scandals, the splendor of their ordered ranks.
But, maybe I screwed up and forgot where I had actually left off. He is called upon during initiation ceremonies. Although there are different traditions and ways of worship from house to house amongst vodouisants, we all reach a common goal: Connecting with god, the ancestors, and the lwa! There are different reasons for it — in this book, there was mention about how Freda will leave when they show up because the Guédé are incredibly tactless and truthful. So, I grabbed Serving the Spirits: The Religion of Haitian Vodou by Mambo Vye Zo Komande LaMenfo. This is how I offer them service each week. The first book I chose was wrong. And this makes me wonder if I ever wanted to actively sacrifice anything in future — as I had been considering doing continuously in cycles throughout the year, honestly — if I would be able to succeed.
While this is, obviously, a problem in numerous arenas — I mean, really, can you imagine talking to a practitioner about some of the shit you do as a non-initiate and not being laughed at because of it? It has a very nice rhythm and I enjoy the message. None of the content on this blog may be reused or reproduced in any way without my permission! Over 400 years have passed, but the tradition strangely still remain today; it is so deeply rooted in the religion that it is almost impossible to even imagine Haitian Vodou without the representation of the Loas with Catholic Saints' images. Gran Bwa meaning Great Tree is a nature oriented loa, closely associated with trees, plants and herbs. Voodoo Royals include Generalissimo Ogou; his melancholic mulatto mistress Ezili; her sometimes lover, Admiral Agwe; his mistress, the money grubbing mermaid La Sirene; and their very dark uncle, Baron Samedi, Lord of Death-and Sexuality. I had been listening to since Saturday. Everyone appreciates their family style: raffish cut-aways, sequined sombreros, white powdered faces, and trademark sunglasses with a single lens, for, as Haitians will explain, 'the penis has only one eye.
Imagery based off Canaanite and Mesopotamian mythology. I may not have been consciously failing at the time, but the gist is that I did indeed fail. That special has to do with the voodoo portion of what it is I do. Much of the time, when I am directed to learning something by Vye Legba, I am given a rather oblique and general communication on the subject. Time flies when you're thppppppppting at your gods. And now is no exception. He is strongly associated with plants, trees, and practices associated with those materials such as herbalism.
