Who is Sobo, anyway? Sobo is one of many Vodou Spirits (called "lwa"). As with other lwa, certain attributes are traditionally associated with each particular lwa. Sobo, along with his brother and companion Bade, is one of the lwa who is traditionally called upon for bringing about money and financial security. He is considered one of the lwa of the sky and is said to control lightning, thunder, and rain. Bade is considered to control the wind. Together, they have control of the elements of nature. Due to their elemental powers, they are often called upon to help us feel secure! Think of terms such as "raining money," "pennies from heaven," etc. By the very nature of feeling secure, we want at least the basics - shelter from the elements, food, etc. Therefore, we call upon Sobo to help us.
How do I get involved in the ritual? First
, you should send in your ritual request to us. We accept them starting in February of every year. All you need to do is send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
. This will insure that you are included in our family ritual on March 17. In your email to us you should explain what your financial needs are and what you hope for us to accomplish by including you in the ritual.This is a good point for each of us to stop and assess what the meaning of security is to us as individuals. Is it a certain balance in a bank account? Is it a zero balance on credit cards? Is it a fully stocked pantry? We suggest that you make your requests something that actually stands a good chance of happening: A promotion at work, finding a job, having old debts paid, finding new ways to make money, keeping your job(!), etc.,etc. We do NOT recommend that you ask for something such as winning the lottery. Everyone
wants to win the lottery!! But this is not something easily controlled by spiritual methods! It is too impersonal and involves things that spirits would not know how to control.
, if you desire, we have put together a kit so that you can participate in the ritual doing it the same way we will. You can purchase the kit by clicking here.
(We are also having a 25% off sale right now! The discount is taken right at check out! No coupon or codes are needed!) We have also printed the directions that come with the kit here
along with some modifications that will still allow you to do the ritual even if you don't purchase the kit. The kit is a nice convenience if you can get it, but don't let NOT being able to get it stop you from doing as much of the ritual as you can! · If you can do the ritual on the same date as us (March 17, 2019 all day and in the evening), that is great, but even if you can't, we highly recommend that you do the ritual when you can.Third
