GENERAL REMEDY FOR HEALTH :Sarayeye with etu at the foot of Shangó.
1-Be patient and remain calm as you wait for results from the work you've done.
2-Take care of natural resources, especially those having to do with water.
3-Religious people should wear a parrot feather to ward off embarrassing situations and the loss of memory.
4- Any advice we give or actions we take should only be done with the intention to help and not out of passion born from pride and vanity.
5-Take care with our appearance and practice good personal hygiene, especially in the cases of nursing mothers so they will not give stomach ailments to their babies when they are nursing.
6-Avoid acts of social and religious disobedience in children and godchildren to avoid fatal and tragic consequences. Disobedience costs people their lives.
7-Make sure doors and entrances to the house and business place are well secured to avoid theft and loss.
8-Be tolerant and don't act out of pride, don't take simple problems so seriously because unnecessary upset can cause problems in the nervous system, heart and intestines.
9-Use a crucifix as a relic.
10-Avoid vices and people who can lead us toward corruption.
11-Pay homage to San Lázaro frequently.
12-Plan to have repeated conversations with children and godchildren about sexuality and other life issues so you can give them advice and build trust with them.
13-Cut down on machista behavior.
14-Avoid domestic violence.
15-Be careful not to take the blame for things you didn't do.
16-Recognize the virtues in the people we are close to, and soften sharp behavior toward them.
17-Respect older people.
18-Dress correctly according to the places you go and activities you do.
19-Pay attention constantly to our children and godchildren, giving them advice and supporting them all in their decisions.
20-Avoid alcoholic beverages and other toxic substances in public places because they can lead to antisocial conduct.
21-Be careful with leftover food that has been left too long.
22-Be careful with people who are not initiated in the religion but they pass themselves off as religious people and act as false prophets (frauds)
23-Be careful of blackmail and some indecent proposal
24-Have your eyesight checked periodically.
25-Avoid doing excessive works (trabajos) with religious items
26-Only comprehension and listening will create unity between godchildren and godparents.
*Disobedience can cost you your life.
*He who gives bread to someone else's dog loses the bread and loses the dog.
*Don't expect results from things you never did.
*Living side by side with humble people refreshes the mind.
*The devil knows more because he's old, not because he's the devil.
*The ox that doesn't have a tail, only God can remove the flies from him.
*Tricks are paid back with more tricks.
*The one who goes around with a cat scratching his body all the time is just asking to be scratched.
THE SOCIEDAD EL CRISTO WISHES YOU EVERY HAPPINESS IN THE YEAR 2016, HERE'S HOPING THAT PROSPERITY, ENLIGHTENMENT AND HAPPINESS WILL REIGN IN OUR HOMES. THANK YOU.
