Instructor: Jhada Addams
I have over twelve years as a crowned priestess of Yemaya in La Regla de Ocha/Lukumi, thirteen years as an Espiritista and have been speaking with the dead since the age of 5.
Spirits have made their presences known to me in various forms throughout the years. I started my path as a horse/possessive medium for spirit back when I was 17. In monthly spiritual masses, I engage with spirit in mild possession, in which I remain aware, but my body and voice are used by spirit to convey messages and heal people, as well as driving out negative entities.
I have worked with paranormal investigators, going with them to residences where the occupants were actively being physically injured or terrorized. On these investigations, my primary purpose in this is to assist the spirit in what it needs as opposed to simply 'making it go away' for a family that's uncomfortable having that kind of energy in their house. Only in cases where the spirit is simply out to cause hurt/harm do I intervene to remove the spirit from the building, to keep it from harming those whom it's harming.
It is my firm belief that we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us - our Ancestors. Through them, we can accomplish everything. Without them, our path becomes static and difficult.
It is my intent in this class to teach people how to initiate that connection with their ancestors. What to have in the home to start the process, the rituals to be observed, etc. Our Ancestors/Eggun are our first line of defense against spiritual maladies.
Propitiation and attention to them, when done with the correct intent, can only bring blessings.
