7 African Powers for financial help, love, prosperity and to help with all difficult problems.
The 7 African Powers refer to the 7 Orishas that we call upon in times of need.
Often depicted with their images linked together in a chain circling an image of the crucified Jesus, these deities represent all that is sacred and powerful.
Orishas are the human form of spirits that guide us on how to live and succeed on earth.
They rule over the forces of nature and the endeavors of humanity.
Each orisha can be recognized via their different numbers and colors which are their marks.
Pray to the orishas for guidance on how to successfully live daily with proper alignment and knowledge of one's head, soul, and personal destiny.
The Orishas that make up the 7 African Powers are: Eleggua, Yemaya, Oshun, Chango, Obatala, Oya, and Ogun.
Elegua opens and closes the path to mankind.
Oya, a whirlwind of fierce energy, is the Orisha of communication between the living and the dead.
Yemaya is the Orisha of motherhood and the queen of the sea.
Oshun is the goddess of love and abundance.
Chango is the Orisha of thunder and lightning.
Ogun, a protective father figure, is the Orisha of tools and weapons.
Obatala, the creator of all mankind, provides strength to the innocent and justice to the guilty.
Use with incense charcoal to release its intense fragrance.
How to burn resins:
The charcoals used to burn resins get very hot.
Use a burner made for resin incense.
Light the charcoal with a lighter or match, when it starts to spark, put it in the burner.
Let the whole charcoal begin to glow hot before adding any resin.
Then sprinkle on the resin as desired, a little bit at a time.
If you add too much or cover the charcoal completely, you might put out the charcoal.
Also, most natural resin incenses smell better when burned in small amounts at a time.
Keep away from kids and pets.
Let the charcoal burn down completely, make sure it's all ash before throwing out because it could set trash on fire.
Store unused charcoal in a zip-lock bag or in a jar, because they won't burn well if they collect humidity from the air.
