We will not be performing Babalu Aye cleansing rituals today, nor holding service this Sunday. More news to come.
Babalu Aye Cleansing Ritual
- Combine as many varied grains and beans as you can in a bowl (ideally 17, Babalu’s number).
- Take two fist fulls of bean/grain mixture and move all around the body, from head to toe, ritually cleansing the body and spirit.
- Take two eggs and hold them over the eyes.
- Grains/beans and eggs absorb the illness
- Leave grain/beans and eggs out in the woods
