Jhada: CHECK OUR CALENDAR OR CALL FOR APPT
Jhada Addams has over eleven years as a crowned priestess of Yemaya in the African Diasporic religion of La Regla de Ocha/Lucumi, has been speaking with the dead since the age of 5 and started working as an active possesive medium/horse for spirit at the age of 17. Engaging with spirit in mild possession, she remains aware during trance, but her body and voice are actively used by spirit to both convey messages and heal people, as well as working in tandem to drive out negative entities from both people and residences.
As a medium working for a paranormal team in Pennsylvania, she has worked cases where heavy poltergeist activity had been reported and where the occupants of a building were actively in danger of being hurt.
Her divination methods are both Diloggun (oracular reading by way of utilizing cowrie shells sacred to the Orishas) and Ancestral Bone Readings. She is available for readings on 1 or 2 Saturdays a month, and teaches workshops as well! check our calendar for more information. Click here for her profile!
DILOGGUN: $70 The Diloggun is an oracle of sixteen sacred cowrie shells that are cast twice to generate one of 256 patterns, or Odu, each composed of two Letras (letters). This oracle allows the Orisha to communicate with the diviner to provide guidance and information to keep the client aligned on their personal path of spiritual growth.
Once the Odu/Letter for the reading has been determined, further questions are then asked in order to gain more perspective and information on the Odu/Letter cast. This is done through a series of yes/no questions, during which the shells indicate an affirmative or negative to the question posed. These questions determine whether the client needs to be made aware of blessings that are coming to them or if there are difficulties/obstructions that lay ahead. The source and nature of either is determined through the questions asked of the oracle by the diviner.
By the end of the reading, the client will have an overview of all the energies present in their life so that they are then better able to either move quickly to obtain the blessings laying before them, or to best avoid the obstacles or negative energy patterns in their path.
This is a fairly involved reading, and the client is urged to record the messages presented because of this. It is important for the client to follow the remedies given strictly and as quickly as possible in order for maximum benefit to be obtained.
Due to the intense nature of this type of reading, The Diloggun reading usually takes an hour, sometimes longer.
ANCESTRAL BONE READING: $30 Using a method based on Kongo cosmology, the Ancestral Bone reading is done on a colorful, patterned cloth, in which there are multiple sections. The diviner casts a selection of different items on the cloth, and depending on where the items land, as well as their orientation (whether they fall right side up, or down) the diviner is able to obtain helpful messages for the client about ancestral spirits that need attention, about possible obstacles in the client's life or beneficial things that are coming to pass that the client needs to be aware of in order to act upon them.
