Hurricane Ike

My prayers go out to all those affected by hurricane Ike. I ask that all my readers join together in prayer as well since prayer can be so powerful in numbers. I have been glued to the Fox news channel to keep up with these evil winds. My heart goes out to everyone in its path.

O God, Master of this passing world, hear the humble voices of your children.
The Sea of Galilee obeyed your order and returned to its former quietude;
you are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control. The Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awake from its seeming lethargy,
overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster.
During this hurricane season, we turn to You, O loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time. O Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach the heavenly Jerusalem where a storm-less eternity awaits us. O Heavenly Father, all the elements of nature obey Your commands, including hurricanes. Calm the storms that threaten us and turn our fear of Your power into praise of Your goodness. Grant this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.

Folk Saint....Jose Gregorio Hernandez

Dr Jose Gregorio was born October 25, 1864 Venezuela and died on June 29, 1919. He was a physician who helped many people, often without pay. Dr Jose Gregorio was a leading doctor at the Hospital José María Vargas.

Between 1891 and 1916, he became dedicated to teaching, medicine, and religious practice. He was well known for helping the poor who could not afford medical care and would pay for their medications with his own money. As if that wasn’t enough Dr Hernandez tried to become a priest but his own physical conditions prevent him from achieving that.

He studied at the Monastery of Lucca in Italy for ten months in 1908 and years later enrolled at the Latin American Pío School of Rome to continue the priestly career, but had to return to Venezuela for health reasons.

One day while delivering some medication to a person who was in desperate need of it Dr Hernandez was struck by a car and killed. After his death people started claiming to have been granted miracles after praying to him.

Today he has a large following who are devoted to him, some of these devotees include other physicians. He is called upon to help with such things as healing and protection when traveling.

If you need healing light a candle to Jose Gregorio Hernandez and place a fresh glass of water near the candle. In your prayer ask him to spiritually medicate the water with the invisible medication you need in order to heal. The next morning put out the candle and take 3 sips of the water and pour the rest on your doorstep.

Until next time, stay well.


Hola Espiritistas, hope you all have been well since our last visit. Today I’m gonna talk about bringing luck into our homes since I have been getting emails asking me about this very subject. The answer is Starfish!!!

These little guys (or girls for you feminists) are very lucky to have inside your home. They are naturally lucky but with a little help from the knowledge of our ancestors we can fix them to be extremely lucky. First thing you need to do is go out and buy one. You need one that is large enough for you to make a small hole in the back of it to place items inside. You will also need a very small Caravaca Cross. You can find these on the internet in any size you want and are a dime a dozen. Get one that is for infants (teeny, tiny).

The starfish is hollow so be careful not to break it in half, go slow. Once the hole is made drop a little dry manzanilla (chamomile), rosemary and bayberry into the hole. You can add more lucky herbs if you want but you really don’t want to give the poor thing a tummy ache. Drop the caravaca cross inside. Also place a handwritten prayer of your choice inside, I use the prayer that is said for this cross. Once everything is inside light a white candle and recite this prayer....

Natural and fragrant herbs, created by the Heavenly Father, your secrets are many and the gifts you bestow on us are strong. I call upon your natural powers to fortify this item and to always live within it. Bring us your gifts of good fortune and bless us with luck and prosperity. That whatsoever request I make for money be quickly granted and fulfilled. Amen.

To seal the hole place a piece of soft paper over it, like a piece of paper towel, and drip some of the candle wax over the paper. Spray the entire fish, front and back with plenty of Holy Water. There you go, your own lucky starfish!

You can hang the fish anywhere in your home. You can drape the starfish with items that represent luck and money such as Holy Medals, flashy beads, sparkly things, money symbols, pieces of pyrite, green ribbon, or a picture of that vacation spot you want to visit. Let me know how this works for you...I love hearing from all of you. Until next time friends, stay well, Luz y Progreso

Folk Saint....Don Pedrito Jaramillo

This is a very short’s a blog....not a book....hahaha...

He was born in 1829. Not much is documented of his younger years but later in life he became a legend. He was originally born in Mexico but relocated to Texas in 1881. One morning while out riding his horse Don Pedrito took a fall and hit his nose on a tree limb which injured his nose badly and he was in terrible pain. His instincts led him to a pond where he packed mud over his nose.....which turned out to cure him of his pain. He was so relieved that he fell asleep. During sleep God told Don Pedrito to spend the rest of his life healing those who were suffering from illnesses. From then on, Don Pedrito was a healer.

You can pray to Pedrito Jaramillo for health, recovery, healing, cures, to change your luck, and for protection.

Basic Egg Limpia (spiritual cleansing)

You are going to use a regular raw unbroken egg. Dip the entire egg in some Holy water and let it come to room temperature. Some people like to sweep the aura with the egg, never coming in contact with the person’s body. Personally, I prefer that the egg makes contact with the body. I feel if the egg makes direct contact it’s more effective in removing negativity. The basic, yet effective prayer you will use is the Apostles Creed. You will work the egg from the top of the body, downward. If you have already “worked” the entire body before you have finished the prayer just start working the egg from the top, down again.

Begin by making the sign of the cross on the top of the person’s head with the egg (where the soft spot of a baby is).

Make downward sweeping motions with the egg over the patient. The only areas it is important to make the sign of the cross with the egg are the major points of the body....these are.....the top of the head, the back of the neck, the center chest, the center of the back, the two palms and both soles of the feet.

Next after you have swept the egg over the head work towards the neck and make a bunch of little crosses across the back of the neck, from one side to the other.

Now work the shoulders, chest and back, making the cross at the indicated locations. Next, the palms and on to the front and back of legs and finally the soles of the feet.

Once you have worked the entire body with the egg, continue the prayer until you are finished. You can then repeat the prayer and going over the body with the egg just to make sure the entire body has been worked.

When your finished, break the egg into the toilet and flush it away. You would only break the egg into a glass of water if you are going to read the sings from the egg but this could be a book in just flush it.

Until next time friends, stay well, Luz y Progreso

Magic Oil Lamps

These lamps have been used for thousands of years so tonight we are going to keep the tradition going with some lamps for specific purposes.

The easiest way to construct one of these lamps is to use a glass kerosene lamp. If you don’t already have one I just seen them at Wal-Mart for 5.99. They are cheap enough so that you can afford several of them on hand.

Make sure the lamp you purchase has a cotton wick, if not you will need one. You will also need some unscented lamp oil, again I get this at Wal-Mart for 1.99. Sometimes they are on sale for $0.99 (don't you just love Wal-Mart)

The ingredients you add to your magic lamp depend on its purpose. Once you fill the lamp with the lamp oil you can add the appropriate essential oils, powders or herbs suited to your needs.

Love Me Lamp
This lamp is when you want a certain person to fall head over heals with you. He/she will be knocking down your
Add to the lamp oil a few drops of “Love” oil, some “Do As I Say” oil and a pinch of “Commanding” powder. Say a prayer to your chosen deity.

Scales Of Justice Lamp
This lamp is for the court to favor your side of a legal matter. Who doesn't need that extra help in legal matters right?
Add to the lamp oil a few drops of “Just Judge” oil. You can put as much of this oil as you like...hehe... Say a prayer to your chosen deity.

Better Business Lamp
This lamp is when you want to increase the sales of your business. $$$$
Add to the lamp oil a few drops of “Better Business” oil, some “Money” oil, some “Magnet” oil, and you can also drop a piece of fools gold inside. Say a prayer to your chosen deity.

Santa Muerte Lamp
This lamp is when you are asking Santa Muerte for help.
Add to the lamp oil a few drops of “Santa Muerte” oil and offer her your prayers.

Let me know how these lamps work for you. I'm always interested in hearing success stories...hehe...
Until next time friends, stay well, Luz y Progreso

Folk Saint.... Niño Fidencio

Hola Espiritistas,
I’ve been getting tons of questions about Folk Saints lately so periodically I’ll write a short something about a different one. Looks like I got my work cut out for me since there are several folk Saints that I like working with. First will be Niño Fidencio. He was born in Guanahuato in 1898. In 1925 he arrived in Espinazo and died in 1938. His full name was Jose Fidencio Sintora Constantino. El Niño had a powerful gift from God to heal the sick and to help those who asked. During his lifetime thousands of people would come from all over to be cured of illness and other needs or to simply be touched by him. Still today he has a large following. Even in death his miracles are still very much real. You can pray to him for any need you may have.

Nino Fidencio be my light and guidance
from your heavenly home
I call upon you in my time of need
Full of faith in the miracles
You have bestowed upon those in the living
(make your petition).
In confidence await you answer
In return for granting me what I ask
I promise to spread your name
To those who are unaware of your kindness.

Light a white glass encased candle in his honor. Recite the prayer at least once a day while the candle is lit. Once your request is answered make sure to tell at least 9 people of his miracles.
Until next time, stay well, Luz y Progreso
