This is a very great song sung to Simbi Makaya, the master of magicians
in the Petro rite, stating that a Houngan (or Mambo) is not God. That is exactly what I want to speak about here.
I often have clients that come to me stating that so-and-so did a wanga and it did not work or promised them something he/she
could not deliver.
Houngans and Mambos are not God. If someone promises you that
they can control or force someone to love you, they are lying to you. We can encourage a person to have
good feelings towards you, we can encourage someone to make the first move, in other words we can give your intended
a shove in the right direction. We can get him/her to notice you. But if the individual absolutely
and truly despises you, we cannot force that individual to be with you. I know you will here some people promising
you exactly that, but do not fall prey to their scams.
Unfortunarely, some spiritual workers take advantage of individuals.
They will prey on someone who is desperate, depressed, unconfident, or in some other way in need. They may promise you
that they can give you anything and everything. Let me give you an example:
While I was in Haiti, my sister went to see a "psychic" because
I was not available and she was feeling kind of sad. She had just recently broke up with a boyfriend.
So she went for a reading, with a friend, and she was told a whole bunch of general things. Then
she told my sister: "I can fix all your problems, if you pay me such and such amount to light some candles at my
altar." Luckily, my sister is well informed enough to know better. My sister did give her, her phone number.
Later on she called telling my sister, "You have a whole bunch of jealousy around you, I need to give you a cleaning for 700
dollars" 700 DOLLARS! WOY, WOY, WOY!
Now, if that were the case the "psychic" should have told her this
during the reading. That is the first thing, secondly 700 dollars for a cleaning is thievery. Plain and simple.
We are here to help people. We are here to serve God and
Ginen. I usually suggesst a reading before a wanga, so that they may be further informed whether or not the
wanga is even worth doing. A reading before the wanga can help alot, it can tell you whether or not the desired
individual has a leaning towards you. If chemistry can be encouraged between you two. If the individual can
see you in a romantic light, and if he/she does not already, if with work that could be achieved.
There is really just too much to say on these topics, and I will be
adding more soon, so keep looking around.
