In Case You Missed It: Alchemy of Pain Ritual to Carry Out On Your Own

In Case You Missed It: Alchemy of Pain Ritual to Carry Out On Your Own

Many people expressed that they wished to be at the Alchemy of Pain ritual held by the Strega Tree Collective last week but had conflicting events on their schedule or they were not well enough to come out to the park. Therefore, we are offering a version of it here for you to do yourself or with others.

A note from Theresa on her experience at the ritual:

Strega Tree diviners often say that the style of divination we do is “prescriptive.” This means that rituals are given for the client to carry out on their own based on issues that are diagnosed by the wedeme and kontomble.

I cannot emphasize enough how this is the magic of this style of divination that the Dagara people of Burkina Faso are so generous to share with us. These “hand-crafted” and personalized rituals are the unique signature of this style of divination. While there is so much that comes through in the divinations themselves, you only feel the full power when you carry out the ritual prescriptions. 

After being engaged with this work for 13 years, it still surprises, delights and impresses me.

Egg Rituals for Deeper Clearing, Cleaning and Extraction

Egg Rituals for Deeper Clearing, Cleaning and Extraction

In an earlier post we discussed classic “sweeps” to clear ourselves of emotional, physical, mental or spiritual “dirt.”

Sometimes the dirt has become embedded in our physical body, meaning it is more than “skin” deep and requires intervention stronger than a sweep. We must attend to this form of dirt as this can quickly turn into physical illness.

Wedeme inform us that there are membranes around each organ and system in our body. We must tend to these as well. The membranes protect what is inside. If the membrane is compromised, the interiority is at risk, the wholeness of the system becomes in danger.

Often in divination, I see a spot or shadow on someone’s heart, womb, liver or throat chakra. In these cases, an Egg Ritual is prescribed. Egg Rituals are to collect and clear deeper down dirt. Rather than a sweep, these are more extractive rituals.
