The ancient art of santeria has been practiced by Mexicans for centuries, with its focus on the connection between nature and the saints. It’s characterized by home rituals, physical offerings to the saints and occasional animal sacrifices. Some practitioners say that initiation into the religion is easy and can be performed at home. However, there are no written scriptures that guide the practice, and practitioners are encouraged to follow their intuition.

Santeria witchcraft practices invoke the spirit of a deceased person to grant wishes. Practitioners are called spirituistas, and channel the deceased’s spirit to provide guidance, fortunes, and recipes.

The rituals performed in Santeria involve calling on the spirit of a deceased person. The spirit of a deceased person can provide you with advice, recipes and fortunes for a variety of circumstances.

The priests of Santeria are called ORIATE/OBA. These priests are highly trained and are members of the System of the Dilogun (the mouthpiece of the Orisha).

This method of santeria is quite advanced and uses 16 cowrie shells in its practice.

Although Santeria has no set of beliefs, there are similarities. Both religions originated in native African cultures, but Santeria adopted Catholic saints. They also share a supreme being.

Santeria is a popular religion that originated in the Dominican Republic. People of all ages are welcome to join the Santeria community. Participants undergo elaborate rituals to become a member of the community. Throughout the year, followers are required to stay indoors during the night and wear only white clothes.

Santeria is a religion that blends different elements of many different faiths. The religion originated in Africa, and later adopted Catholic saints.

In addition to the traditional rituals, santeria is a blending of the practices of witchcraft and magick.
