Curanderismo is not only a form of folk healing, it also includes the practice white magic, ritual, cleansings, energy work, spirit contact, divination, and a vast amount of prayer just to name a few. While some practitioners prefer to engage only in one area, others work in all areas. I work on all areas.
Curanderismo is a very spiritual practice with strong religious faith. Practitioners use a variety of objects including herbs, spices, eggs, lemons, limes, Holy Water, Saints, Crucifixes, prayer, candles, incense, oils and divination tools. Most include spirit assistance. Not all practitioners work in the same way. For example, one person may perform a spiritual cleansing with a raw unbroken egg while another may employ a bundle of herbs for the cleansing tool. On a healing level, the Curandera views life as a whole (mind-body-spirit). The three connected is what creates life. If one of these parts is missing life does not exist. You simply cannot heal one area without concern for the other. All physical, mental, and spiritual illnesses are an imbalance of the mind-body-spirit. For example, a person becomes physically ill with high fever...once the fever is gone the harmful energy of the fever remains. The lingering energy can create mental fatigue, emotional disturbances, or bad luck. On the other hand when one is suffering from a spiritual illness, once removed the energy can continue affecting the physical....actually creating more illness. To remedy this, the entire connection (the mind, the body, and the spirit) must be approached. The practitioner may approach healing by means of rituals, herbs, massage, aromas, channeled healing, candles, Saints, incense, and prayer. Sometimes healing can include all of the above. This depends on the practitioner and on the individual's personal situation. I love what I do, healing people that need help in my spiritual journey ❤️🙏🏼
