AWAKENING OGGUN

We must awaken Oggun when: we need discipline, we must do something even if we don't feel like doing it, we must restore order, we must make people respect the rules, we must team up to fight, we must defend people, principles or territories, we must fight

LET'S START

ALTAR WITH EVERYTHING
After preparing the altar, add one or more of these objects:

A SHARP OBJECT
A METALLIC OBJECT
A WORK OBJECT
Preferably:
A CHAIN
TONGS
NAILS



 

PREPARATION OF THE REQUEST
 

Oggun is the archetype that generates in us that iron discipline that is needed to achieve complicated objectives. It is a strength that allows us to work as a team, because it keeps our ego at bay and allows us to feel part of a much bigger picture. He gives us the courage of soldiers. He is a different archetype than the typical hero like Oyá. Oggun always has an overview. He acts in a group and for the defense of society. That doesn't mean he isn't heroic, he is. But he is not a lone knight, he is rather a member of a well-knit military phalanx, which, thanks to the strength of numbers, manages to achieve major corporate transformations.

Place the icon of Oggun in the center of your altar. Start talking ALOUD explaining why you need the help of this force, this genius or archetype called Oggun. At the end of your speech, place the consecrated coins in your offering container and close the ritual. 

CLOSING OF THE RITUAL
 

The Oggun ritual ends by making a very tight knot. It doesn't matter what you tie, you can do it with a handkerchief, a rope or anything else. The important thing is that it is a solid knot. In this metaphor for the subconscious the knot represents the bond, the pact. You will remember that you are bonding with someone and that you must never act as if you are alone, because this would invalidate the Oggun archetype. Keep your knotted object and do not use it again. If you do another ritual for Oggun, you will have to tie something else. Untying the knot is equivalent to untying the pact. Better yet, bury the knot in a place where no one but you can find it.

MANTRA OF "THANK YOU" 
After completing the ritual you can (I recommend it) recite a mantra for 21 minutes whose only word to pronounce is: THANK YOU.
Gratitude has great transformative power, seeing is believing.

AFTER THESE THREE STEPS THE PROCESS OF AWAKENING YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS POTENTIAL BEGINS
IF NECESSARY, REPEAT UNTIL YOUR GOAL IS REACHED
