Mutual respect is central to the success of a godparent-godchild relationship. Initially, when the godchild is first learning about the religion, he must respect and obey what the godparent tells him, like a child who's learning from his parents how to negotiate the basic steps in life that take us from infancy to adolescence. In the early years of the godchild-godparent relationship, the godchild will often be told to be quiet, observe, and do what his godparent tells him to do. When he asks questions, people in his religious community will tell him: ask your godfather or your godmother. The godchild is scolded for saying too often "I know," or for claiming to know more than he does. Repeatedly, he's told to listen, because he can learn more from listening than from talking. He can learn by observing, and if he's too busy talking, he'll miss what he needs to see. By making the godchild reliant on the godparent for knowledge and training, the godchild learns to build a relationship of trust with the godparent. Without trust and obedience, religious training can't take place, and the godchild can't evolve. Ethical godparents won't abuse this imbalance of power in the relationship, because the godparent-godchild bond is sacred, like that of blood ties between parents and children. The spiritual growth of the godchild will ultimately reflect well on the godparent, if the godchild is nurtured and educated in the right way. A good Padrino or Madrina will take pride in the godchild's accomplishments, but only after the godchild has put in the time, effort and work to create a solid foundation on which to build his knowledge.

When people begin the week-long initiation process into ATRs, they symbolically die and are reborn. Their old life ends, and a new one begins. During that week, in fact, during the entire first year after the initiation ceremony ends, new initiates are called iyawó/ yawó (pronounced: ya-WOH, or ya-BOH). Iyawó is a Lucumí word that's usually translated "bride of the Orichá" (regardless of the sex the initiate), but it's also correct to think of the iyabó as a "novice" in the religion. Both male and female initiates are called iyabó for the first year after initiation, and this one-year period is called the iyaworaje (pronounced: ya-woh-RA-hay). It's a time when the iyabó experiences limitations and prohibitions in terms of behavior, food, dress, contact with other people, and many other aspects of daily life. The year is a period of purification and rejuvination, as the iyabó gets used to interacting with the Orichás in a more intimate way. Traditionally, during the iyaworaje period, new initiates are known in their religious community only as iyabó -not by their given names - in order to ward off any potential osogbo(misfortune) and negative energy sent by ill-intentioned people who want to diminish the iyabó's aché (spiritual strength). The use of the word iyabó instead of their given name also separates them from their old life and ushers them into the new one, where they'll be known in the religious community by a new Lucumí name. To the extent possible, iyabós are expected to live quietly during the year and restrict themselves to activities that they can't be excused from, such as work or school. Those who can't avoid contact with the"outside" world have to take care to avoid situations that are potentially dangerous or disturbing, because as newborns in the religion, iyabós are vulnerable. When religious restrictions conflict with work or school obligations, the iyabó's godmother or godfather helps develop a compromise position that'll allow the iyabó to function in the "real world," while still complying as closely as possible with the demands of the religion.

Oracle Card Sunday This week is pretty special. We have a full moon, a 12:12 portal, the opening of an eclipse gateway, Friday the 13th, I don’t even know what else. I can’t wait to share my love of some of these days and why I love them but that will come later. Expect the unexpected this week. Step outside of the mainstream and embrace your uniqueness. Remember that the practice of gratitude can increase your support from the universe as well as sharing your time, attention, and gifts with others. Your divine support is increasing at this time so keep the faith and stay in touch with your intuition. Don’t forget to ask for support when you need, be it from spirit or otherwise 😇😇💛💛💙💙   #oraclecardsunday     #oraclecards     #tarot     #spiritual     #divination     #tarotreading     #oracle     #tarotcards     #lightworker     #guidance     #love     #newmoon     #meditation     #witchcraft     #pagan     #healing     #tarotdeck     #tarotspread     #intuition     #psychic     #tarotreadersofinstagram     #witch     #tarotreader     #spirituality     #witchesofinstagram     #tarotcommunity     #cardoftheday     #dailytarot     #astrology     #taroteverydamnday

Without godparents nothing is possible. A person who has been through the initiation process and completed all the required rituals is called an Oloricha, more commonly known as a Santero (male) or Santera (female). Only Olorichas can become godparents to another person. Once Olorichas initiate or "crown" another person, they become Babalorichas (male) and Iyalorichas (female). Babaloricha means father of the Orichas, and Iyaloricha means mother of the Orichas. This honorific title reflects the belief that the Godfather or Godmother is giving birth to the Orichas during the initiation ceremony, and the new godchild will inherit those Orichas from the godparent. Afterward, the godchild belongs to the religious family of the godparent, and the godparent and godchild have a permanent commitment to each other, based on a strong code of ethics that requires appropriate moral behavior on both sides. For example, the godchild is expected to include his godparent in prayers, calling them Babatobi Mi (my father who birthed me in Ocha) or Iyatobi Mi (my mother who birthed me in Ocha). He's also expected to remember his Madrina's or Padrino's "birthday in Ocha" (the anniversary of the godparent's initiation.) He should pay his respects in person if possible, and present his godparent with a gift of some kind to honor the godparent's Orichas.

Not all people who practice Santería, Ifa, Vodou and other traditional religions have been initiated into these religions. In Cuba and Haiti, for example, most people, regardless of race, are familiar with some aspects of the religion and may occasionally seek out a Santero (priest) or Santera (priestess) for a consultation when they face a particular problem. People who have no formal ties to the religion are called Aleyos, which technically means "outsiders" or "strangers." This term, however, covers a vast gamut of people. Some may know absolutely nothing about the religion and have no interest in it. Others may occasionally ask for a consulta or help of some kind, but whether or not they really believe in the religion is an open question. Some approach the consulta out of desperation, or out of curiosity. Over time, they may or may not become more deeply involved with the religion. There are "aleyos religiosos" (religious aleyos), however, who have made a more formal commitment to the religion by establishing a connection to a religious elder and an ile (temple-house). These people have undergone some ceremonies, such as the reception of the warriors or the beaded necklaces called "elekes,"but they're not yet fully initiated. In the United States, some people refer to these "aleyos religiosos" as "aborishas, to distinguish them from aleyos who have never received anything in the religion. An Oloricha is a fully initiated Priest or Priestess, commonly known as a Santero or Santera. To become a Santero or Santera, the Orichas have to signal through oracular divination that the individual is being called to the religion. A relatively small percentage of Lucumí practitioners are fully initiated Olorichas, as this step represents a serious and full time commitment to the spiritual practices of Regla de Ocha, as well as a special calling.

Completely cleaned my alter today, which was long overdue. Even hauled the box outside and washed it. Now it feels sorta empty because I put so much less back on it but I know my magpie self will start adding little things soon and in a few months it'll be covered again. 😏 In fact, I want to go get some evergreen branches and cones to add to it. Maybe I'll go to the creek tomorrow....

No more lingering in the past. Bat energy is about accepting, adapting, and adjusting. Truth is, I really need to take heed of this right now. Just got the tattoo yesterday, so it’s still swollen and dark. I love it- something I’ve been planning for about a year.   #batlivesmatter   🖤🦇🖤   #thewildunknownanimalspirit

The urge to prove yourself is definitely a good one to follow, but make sure you don’t go overboard. There’s no shame in asking for help holding up that giant sword if it becomes too heavy to carry by yourself. One of the hardest lessons I’ve had to learn is that I don’t need to do everything by myself. There are others I can count on for support and encouragement along the way. 🌙 Deck: Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot ✨   #tarot     #tarotcards     #tarotdeck     #taroteverydamnday     #tarotcommunity     #tarotreaders     #tarotreadersofinstagram     #tarotreading     #divination     #oracle     #selfdiscovery     #selfcare     #magic     #tarotista     #tarotlove     #tarotlover     #tarotcollector     #tarotcollectors     #tarotcollection     #tarotjourney     #tarotcardoftheday     #cardoftheday     #tarotdaily     #tarotcarddaily     #dailydraw     #courtcards     #pageofswords     #page     #swords     #modernspellcasterstarot
