When we burn Copal or Cedar, our prayers float towards our Creatrix, and she receives them via the sweet smell of our ritual incense. When we give our tobacco and cornmeal to the earth and nature spirits, we are engaging in symbolic gestures of gratitude, referred to in the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition as "Mikhushanku", or ritual "feedings". As we combine our unlimited artistry with the devotion we feel for the source of All Creation--whatever we want to name that--we join in the dance of uniting heaven and earth through the profound medicine of beauty. And when we take the time to craft ritual offerings that are potent with symbolism and rich with the diversity of our natural world, we raise the vibration of those medicine gifts. It's the time and love we put into it that makes the difference, as it is with all things... I invite you to have fun with your offerings and ceremonies and allow your child-like genius to tap into the infinite possibilities of how to infuse this planet with your love and deep devotion. The products I sell are to support your work as a ceremonial artists and hierophants, and I hope they inspire you as you play your vital role in the Great Work during these potent times.
Recently, I was feeling challenged in my relationship with my husband, so I made a despacho to offer prayers for our partnership. As I made the despacho, I was guided to create it with ingredients that were healing and nurturing for our relationship, and the result was a very powerful offering. I decided to share the medicine of its beauty and transformative virtue with you all. Click on the link below to download the PDF for this healing ritual process.
