simbi-makayaDate:  January 27, 2014

Here is the ritual of empowerment.  Essentially, this is exactly what I did.  http://thefirst.magical30.com/2013/12/talisman-challenge-day-1-simbi-makaya-empowerment-ritual/

What happened that.

Did the working after paying Legba, doing the ancestor work, and feeding Ogun ( and its my birthday).  I did this work with Becky.  Becky immediately got the spiritual meaning and influence of what a Garde does.  How it works with Simbi Makaya, why it works… just a whole bunch of imagery about that.  I just got super energized.  Complete body buzz and near possession a couple times.  Even and nice flame.
