"Intend That It Is Going To Be Amazing."
I just opened The Secret Scrolls in the inbox and it says, "Intend That It Is Going To Be Amazing." I felt that way this afternoon in Target when I was paying for my purchase; destiny unfolded and was witness by dozens of customers. Behind me was a young mother with her toddler in the basket and her mother I assumed. Earlier the mother and I encountered each other in the grocery department. We made eye contact and our souls hailed each other. Smiles. I said hello and she giggled like a little girl and smiled brightly. I admired her brightly colored sari and complemented her. Smiles and giggles from her. A refined, elegant lady I surmised by her accessories and purse. She was definitely not poor.
So as I am securing my wallet and gathering my purchases, the little girl in the shopping cart spies the DVD Frozen on a impulse buy stand. She began pleading with her mother to buy it but the stressed out mom was not feeling her daughter's incessant request. Little girls are dear to my heart and I would tell my daughter Faith when she was little, "God always hears the prayers of little girls". The little girl's cries moved my heart and I shyly offered to pay for the DVD in a discreet manner. But the mother was so shocked by the gesture she was exasperated and replied loudly. "Oh no, you're too kind, I cannot accept! Why would you do that? Oh WOW, you are such a nice man!" Her mother smiled brightly and nodded her head to her daughter's comments. Realizing shoppers and store personnel were watching I quickly explained my personal belief. "It is the custom of my people to bless a child I said loud enough for all to hear. I meant no offense. It is good luck to cause a child to smile and laugh." The mother replied as I walked away, "Sir, you are already blessed because of your kind offer and I wish you much good luck!" The people in the crowded check out lanes let out collective "Ahhs" and "How sweet" comments. I never intended the act of kindness to be known by anyone else. Destiny meant it otherwise.
The moral of the story is that its not about you. Look for those moments when destiny allows you the opportunity to be a blessing. Forget who is looking and whether your actions will be thought inappropriate. I say that because for a moment, I hesitated to be a blessing and we should never do that when Spirit moves us.

Spiritual House Cleaning
This La Regla Lucumí spiritual house cleansing ritual was shared with me by a Babalawo colleague years ago. It can be done by anyone and does not require initiation. It is great for spiritual decontamination of a residence or room. Can also be used to purify a space after lurid, paranormal sexual intercourse and dark spiritual work.
Dozen Red Roses
Charcoal Incense Disk
1 White Pigeon or Dove
Frankincense & Myrrh Resin
Wrey & Nephew 150% Proof Rum
Obtain all the times listed above. The ritual works better if the pigeon or dove is kept overnight in the house before doing the ritual the next morning. Water and feed the bird according to your intuition if required.
Step 1) Pass six red roses over your body - head to toe as you pray to be cleansed from all spiritual defilement and dark energy associated with hexes, curses and lurid demon manifesting sexual activity.
Step 2) Remove the petals from the remaining six red roses. Scatter the petals around the house on the floor in the corners for one day. Discard in trash.
Step 3) Prepare pigeon by spraying Wrey & Nephew Rum over it followed by blowing cigar smoke over the bird. Be gentle as you explain to the bird what you require it to do. Remember, you are not sacrificing the bird. You are asking the bird to become a scapegoat and vessel to carry away evil, negativity and dark energy.
Step 4) Holding the bird gently, clean the walls with the white pigeon or dove and release ourdoors with thanks.
Step 5) Fumigate residence with Frankincense & Myrrh resin burned on a hot charcoal incense disk. Caution: Be fire safe.
Optional Step 6) Place a fresh white egg in each corner of every room or one egg in the center of each room economics withstanding. Discard in the trash after 3 days.
Optional Step 7) Place a lit white candle with a glass of water in the corner behind the front door. * A cap of lemon ammonia can be added to the water. This is a low level spirit trap. Empty water every three days. If bugs are in the water, that is a sign the remedy is working. If no bugs after several days, the residence is probably free of negative spirits.
