The Litany of St. Michael, Heavenly Physician




St. Michael, the Archangel is in Al Quran said to be covered with hair-like tongues all over his body who pleads for the mercy of Allah on behalf of sinners. He is Palo Mayombe Kimbisa equated with Zarabanda, the mpungo who forges spirit from the world of matter. He is in Haitian Vodou intimately linked with Ogou Badagri and St. George while in Kimbanda he is the divine support of Exu Rei.

St. Michael is the patron of the Church and of Knighthood and presides over the rites of exorcism/purification. This role gives him a unique knowledge and dominion of the infernal realms and dimensions of creation. He is the angel who guards the crossroad where night meets day. He is balance and manifest as the Sun wakes up in the sign of Libra. He is the ever victorious knight saving the Virgin from the forces of corruption.  

He is the patron of Moses and Solomon and Lord of thunder and lightening. He is the voice of inspiration and prophecy. He is the celestial rebellion that secures the dew of salvation. He is Dragon and Savior – he is all this and more as the triune doctor of the Angels. He is the sun flower and the bay laurel as much as he is the vertebrae of the Dragon it self. For how can he know what he is not? 

He carries the message of be aware how you judge others, for he is the judgment that returns upon you. Be kind and be understanding, be generous with those struck with misfortune - and his scales will find you ever heavy in the embrace of Mercy.

Michaelmass (29th of September) is the day when a feast was prepared to honor ones word and clear away debts. It was opportune to use this day to settle scores and literally purge ones soul from hatred and resent.

You can make on this day a sweetbread of honey, nuts, sunflower-seeds and bay laurel. Invite your friends for uplifting conversations or share the bread with those who has been less blessed by Fortune than you have.

The Litany of St. Michael, Heavenly Physician

Oh, you heavenly physician
Whom God entrusted judgment and care of the soul
Oh, you heavenly physician
Who rescues the fair and tame the foul
Oh, you heavenly physician
You have gazed into the mirror of corruption
Oh, you heavenly physician
You hold the worlds together, free from eruption
Oh, you heavenly physician
You who knows the Dragon above and beneath
Oh, you heavenly physician
Ever victorious knight who knows no defeat
Unto you we place our soul
And pray you make it white as snow
Oh, you Heavenly Physician
Because we were born with a golden caul
Towards salvation we shall grow
Oh, you Heavenly Physician
Take this bread and wine
Our supplications and petitions divine
And forge our soul upon the true cross
Oh, you Heavenly Physician
Restore our soul to its divine estate
And free us from hubris, sloth and hate
Oh, you Heavenly Physician
Take these gifts and raise us as knights
In the Kingdom of Shadows
Within the heavenly furrows
We shall ever remain wise
Amen. Amen. Amen.

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

NEW ARRIVALS AT SACRED ALCHEMY STORE

Greetings; We are here presenting the first of a series of new services and products, for more information, just click the link embedded in the headers... 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
