Peace all,

Thought I would post this simple, yet highly effective cleansing procedure. Unless stated, this information is courtsey of Curious Curandera at Visit her blog for more brilliant spiritual procedures.

You are going to use a regular raw unbroken egg. Dip the entire egg in some Holy water and let it come to room temperature. Some people like to sweep the aura with the egg, never coming in contact with the person’s body. Personally, I prefer that the egg makes contact with the body. I feel if the egg makes direct contact it’s more effective in removing negativity. The basic, yet effective prayer you will use is the Apostles Creed. You will work the egg from the top of the body, downward. If you have already “worked” the entire body before you have finished the prayer just start working the egg from the top, down again.

Begin by making the sign of the cross on the top of the person’s head with the egg (where the soft spot of a baby is).

Make downward sweeping motions with the egg over the patient. The only areas it is important to make the sign of the cross with the egg are the major points of the body....these are.....the top of the head, the back of the neck, the center chest, the center of the back, the two palms and both soles of the feet.

Next after you have swept the egg over the head work towards the neck and make a bunch of little crosses across the back of the neck, from one side to the other.

Now work the shoulders, chest and back, making the cross at the indicated locations. Next, the palms and on to the front and back of legs and finally the soles of the feet.

Once you have worked the entire body with the egg, continue the prayer until you are finished. You can then repeat the prayer and going over the body with the egg just to make sure the entire body has been worked.

When your finished, break the egg into the toilet and flush it away. You would only break the egg into a glass of water if you are going to read the sings from the egg but this could be a book in just flush it

I did this yesterday and if I were to do it again, or offer tips, it would be to get someone to do it for you. Passing an egg all over ones body is not easy, unless you can elongate your arms, but alas such powers only exist in the fevered minds of Marvel comic nerds.

Another tip would be to use fresh farm eggs which have been in the refrigerator for a minute, and this is because cold items absorb energy better than room temperature ones.

This is the result of my egg cleansing and from what I can gather, no negative energy was absorbed.
The yolk broke in half because of the way I handled it - I think. Not sure what the bubbles represent, so will ask around (sighs, PSA to my e-foes, please resist the temptation to rectify this, and send some my way; I will only send it back in a way that will reverberate in your family for generations to come. Trust me on that.)



The same cannot be said for this poor lady's egg cleansing;


Bakcground story,

Hello my friendly occultists. This is a picture of a limpia (spiritual cleansing) I did on a woman who was suffering with symptoms of an illness that the doctors could not find. This went on for years. During this period she visited several doctors and had numerous tests done but they all came back normal. She was suffering from back pain, headaches, constant ear and sinus infections, nightmares, and depression. If that wasn’t enough she was also experiencing bad luck, financial difficulties, and had numerous fears and was fear of flying.

This picture was the first of her limpias; I performed 6 more on her. After the final cleansing all but one of her symptoms (nightmares) went away. She also got a promotion which increased her salary. Her luck is much better and she informed me that she was flying to Las Vegas.....for the second time!!!

Here the egg shows the presence of blood....and a ton of it to boot. This indicates some serious problems...enemies and strong witchcraft. It’s difficult to explain the yolk and whites of the egg but they show that the lady also had susto (soul loss) which was causing her to be fearful of everything and the depression she felt.

The egg in its raw state has natural drawing abilities. That’s why many curanderas use them. Just another example of the mysteries and power around us.

I can share the way I was taught to do a limpea or cleansing with eggs by my great grandmother. She's Portuguese, not Spanish, but it's
pretty similar.

First, you must wash your hands with cold water. Then put some sort of protective powder or herb or oil on your hands. Some use cascarilla (which is ground up eggshell). I use a special protective powder I make myself.

You must use fresh FERTILE egg. Some say the color of the hen matters. Some will say a black hen. Some a black FRIZZLY hen. Some a white hen. I use a black frizzly hen which belongs to a friend of mine who supplies me with eggs.

Then, I pray for protection and help from my Patron Saint(s) and the Saint(s) of the person I am cleansing.

They stand facing me.

I make the Sign of the Cross at each energy center (chakra) with the egg touching the body or just off the body, "In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."

I do this on both sides of the body. I also do the energy centers at all the joints.. i.e., the elbows, wrists, fingers.

Then, beginning at the crown of the head, I sweep the egg downward over the body, praying and asking that the egg absorb the negative or evil or illness (depending on the symptoms).

I go all the way down to the feet.. then turn them around and repeat on the backside.

I then seal the chakras again with the Sign of the Cross.

Then, I smoke the client with a cleansing smoke.

Then, I smoke them with a healing smoke.

I say prayers while I'm doing all of this.

Then, I take the egg and break it in a bowl.Often, but not always, you will see things in the egg, which you then interpret just like you would if you were reading tarot, or tea leaves or stones/bones...

There may be blood in the egg.. this is a good sign that the illness has been absorbed.

If the egg is BLACK, then some magical work is in order because I believe the person is being magically attacked.


The egg should be flushed down the toilet, or if that is impossible, tossed against a tree.

Do not worry about harming the tree. Trees use our waste to make food. What is poison to us, like carbon dioxide, is food for them. They will transform the energy.

I often send the client home with a bag of herbal bath and instructions.

When the limpia is finished, you again wash your hands in cold water.

Here*are more details about egg cleansing as performed in Mexico, other than the matter of the evil eye which I discussed. *

I would not say that the Apostle's Creed is indispensable. It is simply the most common prayer that is used. Another very common one is the Magnificat (Alexandra says, see the end of this post for this prayer). Still another popular one is the Salve (I am not sure how it is said in English but in Spanish it is "Dios te salve Maria, Reina y Madre, de misericordia, vida, dulzura y esperanza nuestra. etc."). * I think that such mundane prayers as the Our Father and the Hail Mary would also be appropriate, or even prayers to saints who are called on for protection and healing from witchcraft - like St. Peter, San Cipriano, etc. *

Certainly there are much longer and more detailed and specific prayers for healing that can be used. If you go to one of the last pages of this website you will see a collection of prayers that is used for a long cleansing ritual. *

In curing an adult (or a child) from spells, or from bad luck, for instance, one uses the egg in the same way, passing it over the "patient" while reciting healing prayers. In order to get the evil energy off of the premises where it can't return, the same methods I described are used - burying the egg in moist earth, flushing it down the toilet, or throwing it into a running stream, river, canal, or irrigation ditch (do not throw it into stagnant water). Still another popular method is to throw it into a fire (preferably inside a stove that is enclosed, so that when it explodes it does not spray its contents all over the place). *

If one wants to use this a divination device, the contents of the egg are poured into a glass of water, and the threads that come out from the egg and go the surface of the water in the glass give an indication of the nature of the spell, or indicate if the person is under a spell at all, but it takes either a gift of divination or else a fair amount of training to know how to interpret these signs.

The threads he is referring to are seen in the picture below. The round blobs are called 'pearls' and indicate that spirits are attached to you.


The Magnificat Prayer

My soul doth magnify the Lord.

And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name.

And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble.
He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy:
As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever.

Signs to look for that indicate an attack;

1. Bad odour emitting from the egg

2. An un-natural egg yolk shape

3.The egg explodes during the cleansing

4.The egg white becomes murky or cloudy

5.Blood or hair appears in the egg white/yolk

6.A face appears in the yolk, or strange letterings

I hope this tutorial is of some help,

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
