This is the first of a multi part series on dealing with Egun or reverence to ancestors. I decided to name this article illumination to Egun, because what I would like to discuss how to activate your spiritual quadrants with prayers.
In the Catholic Church there is a group of people known as charismatic. According to Wikkipedia Charismatic catholic is define as this: The Catholic Charismatic Renewal is a movement within the church characterized by vibrant masses, it features ‘speaking in tongues,’ as well prophesy and healing. This movement is based on the belief that certain charismata (a Greek word for gifts), bestowed by the Holy Spirit such as other language communication and healing.
In this first part of the series, I will post the list of articles you need to do the ritual and in the other parts we will go through the steps of it. I hope you find it as useful as I have for my own practice with the Egun.
