My religious practices, up til now- have been hit or miss. I’m not the best adult, not the most *organized and together* person. I have forgiving Spirits who I do a lot of work for, in the world, but I’m never meeting my own expectations, so I suspect I’m not meeting Theirs.
In about two weeks, I’ll receive Collares (necklaces) that will mark me as a baby Santerian. If I manage a Misa (spirit court) before this, no doubt my spirits will voice their assignments, requests, and more!
So, while entering the religion should please a great many of Them, it’s also a Gateway to Things to Do (or Not Do).
Add the small children I work with ( who are forever pulling my hair, breaking my necklaces (3 to date) and getting me dirty)- and…well, you see.
Not to mention, the chickens.
