    If you don't mind me asking, what prompted you to inquire?

    Palo? Hmmm.... That's heavy.

    Oshun. What can I say? She is always there for her children. Oshun likes honey, oranges, flowers, brass bells (if you can find them), peacock feathers, mirrors, combs. She is prissy, the seductive movements of the river. She is very congenial, sociable, always smiling except when someone pissing her off and then there's hell to pay. She loves flattery and a good party. Her day is Friday. Oshun is good with honeydew melons and cantaloupes, pumpkins, squash.

    Once I had a dream where I was mounted by Oshun. I was the life of the party, greeting and smiling at everyone in attendance. I ran into a seductive woman, dressed in a red dress. Although very attractive, she had a stern manner and hard edge to her. Later on, during the party, the woman and I ran into each other again. We began to dance. Our dance to us off the floor and into the air. Higher and higher we rose as we continued to dance around and around. Next, our dance became an act of copulation. The sex was mind-blowing, exploding my consciousness to oblivion. The lesson was the lesson of life. Oshun is creativity at its best and Shango is straight raw passion. In order for life to manifest, whatever it is, there must be a union of creativity with passion (drive).

    I do not mind in the slightest.

    I asked because I am hoping to find out more about her from her children. Call it secondary research. I am in the process of ordering two books which will make up the majority of this research. This is all I can do at present, as I only found this information out last week before I had to leave to visit my relatives for a week. Till I leave, I am not in a position to do more than this. I hope that makes sense.

    Indeed.



    Interesting, and please forgive me if I interpret this literally (being the neophyte that I am)...

    ..actually, I shall have to come back to this question after I have given it some more thought.

    Thank you for that very enlightening response.

    Ps.
    1. Have you ever worked with St. Martha?
    2. Do you know of a Houngan Hector?

    Peace,

    Peace!

    Oshun is my mother, but my primary orisa is Eshu. I am a child of Eshu or omo-Eshu. I'm more able to tell you about him than yeye mi.

    No problem.

    St. Martha is worked more strongly in Haitian Vodou and Espiritismo. I work through St. Martha, yes as the representation of Lasiren. Houngan Hector, I have indeed heard of him, although I don't know him.

    Sister,

    Have you thought about working with St. Martha? Oh, yeah, I heard Houngan Hector was in the UK recently. I haven't heard anything bad about him. From what I hear, he is a **** good houngan.

    Blackbird,

    Apologies for the delay in responding to you.

    Until yesterday, I had never heard of St. Martha and it was only in passing that a good friend of mine mentioned her name. Is there any particular reason you ask?

    Houngan Hector has not yet been, but will be coming over next month. He has three workshops around the country and fortunately, one of them will be in London. Below is the flyer advertising his workshops. I still don't know if I will attend. With such events, I usually tend to stand out as the token black person, much to the chagrin of white folks lol.

    About Houngan Hector
    Hector is a fully initiated Houngan Asogwe (the highest rank of Haitian Vodou priest), and leads the Sosyete Gade nou Leve ('Watch us Rise' Society) in New Jersey, USA. He has been working with the spirits since early childhood and is dedicated to providing authentic and accurate information and initiation into the beautiful traditions of Haitian Vodou, 21 Divisions, Sanse and more!

    In September 2008 Hector is traveling to the UK (Cardiff/Bristol/London) to provide workshops in 'Vodou 101', 'Vodou Magic', 'Haitian Vodou' and 'Serving the Rada Lwa' - none of which should be missed! He will also be available for consultations and spiritual baths at that time. Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
