To Bind or Not to Bind



“amen dico vobis quaecumque alligaveritis super terram erunt ligata et in caelo et quaecumque solveritis super terram erunt soluta et in caelo.”
Matthew 18:18
The Good Book uses the Latin “ligare” when it speaks of bonds in Matthew 18:18. The same as we find in the word religion or re-ligare, to reunite a bond. To reunite something would indicate that the bond is something that once was in existence and re-ligare can not refer to anything else than a rekindling of what once was and not a new relationship that has ever been. When our ancestors in spirit, such as Giordano Bruno speaks of ligare in terms of manifestation across the golden chain of being he discusses the idea of vinculum. Vinculum also means bond, but in a slightly different way than ligare. A vinculum refers to the limits of a specific passage or grouping. A vinculum is a specific avenue that binds what is desired by using the theory of correspondence.  Ligare is the general bonding, while vinculum refers to the specific route and goal for the binding.
When Our Lord spoke to his followers who had been vested with certain powers he repeated the gift of bonding twice in the Gospel of Matthew, both in the 16 and 18th Chapter. In the 18th Chapter we read in the KJV the following translation: “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven”.
The greatest bonding agent is Eros and Love, here we find the cosmic amalgam, the blood of divinity itself. Eros unveils himself in sympathy and attraction, antipathy and repulsion. A binding must consequently follow the celestial rules of attraction where a specific grouping of objects and states with a specific celestial commonality are utilized to obtain our end. To bind a spiritual influence to a talisman, to bind or wish in the knots of the ladder or to bind a spirit to work by contract are some forms where specific vinculums are used to accomplish and fulfill our wish. The vinculum is possible because we are all already connected or bound to God through our “ligare”. Divinity is our ligament so to speak that makes possible to reconnect with source. This reconnection with source is important for the effectiveness of the vinculums we forge on earth.
One binding is however complicated, and this is to bind someone’s love, binding spells as they are popularly called. This is complicated because the very ligament of divinity in the person who is targeted is bound to carnal and material desires – and quite often obsessions. The demonic shows itself it obsessions and compulsive emotions and as such it is often a Demonic impulse that motivates people to either do or ask to have done a binding spell so they can own and possess the life, heart and body of another human being. This is quite simply a form of ruthless selfishness, a rotten form of hubris that makes the person who asks such work to be done blind for its own shortcomings and desire to force powers that repel each other to stick together no matter what the natural vinculum tells.
The one driven by higher impulses, celestial ones will work on a higher level, with fumes and words, poetry and harmony and seek to make oneself manifesting superior qualities and odors rather than drag all into matter and force an unnatural bond to take place upon earth. What takes place in such instances is like shaking water and oil together. It will stay together for some time, but slowly it will drift apart. It is an unnatural liaison that is subject for a temporarily bonding. And such is love amongst humans, some bonds of love between men are meant to last for minutes, others for days, yet others for years and some few for incarnations upon incarnations because the two are completed in sharing of oneness.

Quimbanda Workshop (Umbanda & Quimbanda) 2022

The Cabula/Temple Meia-Noite da Encruzilhada will arrange for its yearly workshop of Quimbanda from 7 th of September to the 11 th of September 2022 . The workshop will this year also cover Umbanda , hence we will make a workshop under the greater umbrella of ‘ macumba ’. The workshop will be held in Brazil, in the state of Minas Gerais on a Farm located in the midst of the forest, 100 km from the airport Guarulhos in São Paulo. In this workshop we will offer traditional Umbanda baptism and we will offer the first initiatic step in the ladder of Quimbanda , what is often called vinculação , a ceremony working on the same level as a baptism that aims towards establishing a true and strong bond with your Exu and Pomba Gira. These initiatic steps will be followed by a full Gira (drumming) where also the spirits of Umbanda will be celebrated as we move from these spirits of forest and wisdom towards Exu and Pomba Gira during the celebration. These important parts are mediated by se

The ‘firmeza’ of Quimbanda

Quimbanda is a cult centred on the direct and head on interaction with spirit, hence developing mediumistic skills and capability in spirit trafficking is integral and vital to working Quimbanda. Possession is a phenomenon that intrigues and also scares. After all we have all seen movies like The Exorcist and other horror thrillers giving visual spectacles to how hostile spirits can take over the human body, mind and soul in intrusive and fatal ways. But possessions do find a counterpart in the shamanic rapture as much as in the prophet whose soul is filled with angelic light that makes him or her prophetic. Possession is not only about the full given over of your material vessel to a spirit that in turn uses the faculties of the medium to engage various forms of work. Inspiration, dream and to be ‘under the influence’ are potentially valid and worthy avenues for connecting with spirit. Yet another avenue for good spirit trafficking is the communion, or what Jake Stratton-Kent ca

Thank you for having made possible ten years of Sacred Alchemy Store!  Sweetening work We are now offering works for sweetening people. The motivation for doing this can be varied, ranging from creating a docile and harmonious field between you and someone you seek to know better. It can be done in order to calm down someone who is in turmoil and distress as it can be done for making some person holding your Fate in their hand to become more kindly disposed towards you. We perform these sweetening works either through the intervention of Pomba Gira or more commonly we resort to the technology of Umbanda and work within the wonderful realm of caboclas in the realm or Oxum. The working is not a one time working, but a sequence of smaller workings over the course of a week that leads to the construction of what we can call the ‘sw
