I didn't recognize the number flashing on my iPhone last evening but was compelled to answer. I instantly recognized the voice on the other end of the call. It is a client for whom I did work to break a Vodou curse from over her life. She had been in trouble with the law, lost her job and her career track was hijacked by dark, insidious forces sent by her nemesis the "other woman".
Seven months ago I met this client and was moved in my heart by her plight. A colleague and I consulted together over her case and devised a strategy to dismantle and block the dangerous witchcraft wound around her life like a hungry boa constrictor.
This client's life had so much confusion in it and she was on the verge of a nervous break down. Tensions in her home were at the boiling point and violence had already boiled over like hot molten lava escaping the submerged, steaming vents in the soul. Sarabanda, the Nkisi of iron spoke to her work. Over the course of several weeks I crafted a powerful protection makutu for her and an additional amulet made with a railroad spike, the spirit of the iron fed a rooster and powerful bilongos (medicine) were wrapped in red cloth around the rusty blood soaked spikes. The iron makutu would bring peace in the home, silence the violence and allow the client to begin anew with her children.
I had not heard from the client in several months but my nfumbe would on occasions speak her name. When the nfumbe speaks about someone to me I always ask why. He instructed me to update her work. Sometimes the instructions were simple such as "burn a white candle for her on the firma of Sarabanda", or "Give Lucero hot rum and fresh coconut". I had not heard from her and released her to God knowing I had done all Spirit instructed me to do. So, it wasn't a surprise when I heard her voice in my ear. She told me that during the time of silence and her absence, things had turned out exactly as I predicted. The relationship is ended, her spouse is agreeable and as gentle as a lamb. The relative that caused this mess using Vodou is neutralized and no longer interfering. Also, the client's issue with the law is turning around in a positive way. She was happy but in her own way demanding as ever. A skeptic and frantic young mother she was when she came to me. According to her testimony, she had gone to many spiritual practitioners & spent thousands of dollars without satisfactory results. She doubted openly whether or not I too would fall into the same category. But now here she was on the phone asking me to take care of another problem. She spoke of seeing the muerto and nkisi around her and wondered out loud if she was hallucinating LOL! I explained that the apparitions are normal and because she is spiritually open, her inner sight is showing her the proof of how powerful and effective Palo Mayombe is.
People often think of Palo Mayombe as black magic and it is by origin because it is the spiritual practice of black people having originated in the Congo of Africa. However, it is not evil magic because it is called black nor is Vodou. Here is a demonstration of the right use of conjure to bring balance, peace and course correction to an otherwise potentially fatal home environment and life altering circumstances. No one was physically harmed and no curses were uttered or sent. The nkisi defeated and blocked the witchcraft, they made an enraged and disagreeable man calm down. In addition, they worked within the judicial system to sweeten & abbreviate a very messy legal matter in favor of the client. I remember telling the client a thousand times to just take her Bach Rescue Remedy daily and think pleasant thoughts, remembering that energy follows thought. "Keep the faith baby" I often exhort in the manner of the late Adam Clayton Powell. For this reason . . . I am not moved by appearances nor a client's anxiety, fear or unbelief, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.
All Praise belongs to God because she returned to testify what a Mighty God we serve! in this work people come and go and fewer return to say thanks and to testify. Luke 17: 15-19 reveal that even Jesus, the greatest spiritual practitioner of all times was used and taken for granted during his ministry. But also illustrates that in the life of the one who returned to say thanks, the Ase of the Son of God was manifest and wholeness was the result. "One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” KJB
