Today I got asked a question that I know many of you have.
HOW DO I KNOW IF SANTA MUERTE WILL WORK WITH ME?...
Who is Santa Muerte?
I won't go into much detail; there already is a lot of information on the internet, do your research on WHO IS SHE.
Santa Muerte (Holy Death)
Santa Muerte is a Deity or Mexican folk saint who has become increasingly prominent since the turn of the 21st century. Santa Muerte goes by many different nicknames; I listed the most popular ones down below.
I have always said. There are many Santa Muerte stories; how she came about, and who she depends on who you are, who you're with, and what you do, and that is who Santa Muerte is to YOU. You may know her by another name other than the ones displayed down below. There is something fundamental always to remember WE ARE ALL WORKING WITH THE SAME ENERGY.
La Flaquita (The Skinny Lady)
The Bony Lady (La Huesuda)
The Pretty Lady (La Nina Bonita)
La Nina Blanca
La Dama Poderosa
Like she goes by many nicknames, she also takes on various physical forms; Santa Muerte is quite merely the personification of death. Santa Muerte is very popular for the vast multitude of miracles she has done for her devotees. The most popular petitions from those who turn to Santa Muerte are;
An increase for money or pay off a debt
Better/New Job or Job Promotion
Love, Lust, and or Relationship
Protection from Negative people and Energy
Santa Muerte is one folk saint or deity who will always be present whether you want to accept death or not. Please get to know her, create a relationship in which you will see for yourself that she isn't one to fear and isn't what many have shown her to be. She is very loving, caring, and will bring anyone under her cloak for protection.
JUST LIKE ANY OTHER DEITY/ FOLK SAINT GOD/GODDESS SHE ISNT ONE TO PLAY WITH.
When I first began to work with Santa Muerte, I had not one person to turn to for advice, tips, or tricks; I was all alone in this one. I started to do my research online and bought many books on Santa Muerte, and I became frustrated. I felt inclined to do other things that were not written anywhere on the internet or in any book.
I gave up on doing everything I read about her; there are so many herbs, roots, and oils that I couldn't get ahold of, let alone food. I had no idea what they were. The day I received my custom made Santa Muerte statue was one of the happiest days of my life. The Santa Muerte I imagined three weeks prior was the same Santa Muerte sitting that night on my living room floor. I had a gorgeous 5 foot tall Santa Muerte right in front of me and had no idea what to do next. All the; DO THIS, DONT DO THAT, or DO IT THIS WAY that I read online and in books felt like it was all wrong TO ME.
The first night I had her home, she came to me through a dream. I was in a cemetery full of different kinds of flowers and roses; purples, greens, yellows, and orange. Among the beautiful flowers, I was surrounded by many tombstones. Although it was night time in my dream, it was a bright and beautiful cemetery; it almost looked like a flower garden with added monuments.
In my dream, Santa Muerte was all bones with a yellow cloak over her, just like the Virgin Mary, only in a deadly form. I have always been told by my grandma, who was a shaman and worked with Santa Muerte since I can remember, that Santa Muerte is, in fact, the other side of the Virgin Mary. Just like the other side of a coin, and to be honest, I have come to believe that this is true.
On Santa Muerte's right hand, she had a glass see-through crystal ball in which I saw myself in the physical realm lying in my bed sleeping. On her Left hand, she had her shiny scythe, the sharp part of the scythe was made of a mirrored glass in which I viewed my self while being in my dream as a third person.
Please note the objects that you see her with each have their meaning and the positioning of them. Her cloak color also has a purpose; if there is a particular color of Santa Muerte, you feel drawn too, meditate on it and see what it means to you before turning to the internet to find out its meaning.
REMEMBER THAT THIS IS ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HER!
What was said and what happened in my dream is very personal, and I will not share it on this forum.
Ladies and gentlemen, this was how I knew that
*I* WAS READY TO WORK WITH SANTA MUERTE AND THAT SHE WANTED TO WORK WITH ME.
It doesn't matter how many statues, offerings, or how expensive your set up is. She will come to you when YOU are READY.
She will communicate with you in many ways; Numbers. Symbols, Animals, and Dreams. Heck, what tells you that she isn't coming to you through this forum.
NOW let's GET INTO HOW TO WORK WITH SANTA MUERTE.
I want to start by saying.
THERE IS NO WRONG or RIGHT WAY TO WORK WITH HER.
If one day you feel inclined to give her boiled cabbage leaves as an offering, then do so.
For her altar, you can have a wallet-sized picture and a glass of water; you don't have to go out and do the most.
You work with what you can! If you have no space or can't have any altars due to family, friends, or roommates, don't forget that YOU have the power, which is your MIND. Sit in a quiet place, close your eyes, and imagine her in her head. Talk to her, chant, or sit there and admire her.
SEE WHAT COMES THROUGH.
Remember that this is my experience and research on Santa Muerte.
