THE MASTER HEALER

THE MASTER HEALER

Now I am in the city of Pimentel (Northern Peru). It is the first time for me in South America. I spent my first day at the marketplace of Chiclayo; from there I moved to the museum of Tùcume.

Both at the marketplace and in the museum there were displayed many kinds of objects to do magic, both white and black.

According to the Peruvian witches, the work of magic must be performed only on Tuesday or Friday to be effective; if performed in different days the magic doesn’t work.

The master healer of Tùcume preserves the tradition of healing through herbs and ceremonies. They celebrate ceremonial masses using a portable altar. The objects are placed on the altar in strict order. ‘Purgatorio’, who is an ancient deity, is present in the form of a stone brought from the mountain.

The master healer cures people using his arts which date back to the ancient world of his ancestors. Is it true? Who knows!

VITAMIN OF NATURE

VITAMIN OF NATURE

In a few months I’ll be seventy years old, but unlike most people my age I don’t take any medicine. If it happens to me to catch a cold, I let it go naturally. I don’t like to take pills, antibiotics and so on to get over.

What do I do to keep fit? I take the vitamin of nature. It doesn’t cost anything, as it is a gift of God. If you want to be healthy as well, take care of yourself not to lack of the following natural vitamin: swimming in the ocean, jogging in the forest, breathing clean air, doing yoga or similar exercises in the nature whenever you can.

HOW TO REMOVE THE HEX

HOW TO REMOVE THE HEX

Aunt Filippa opened the cupboard and took out a soup plate and a small cup. She put the plate on my head, asking my mother to hold it fast. Then, she poured some water into the plate and olive oil into the small cup. Finally, she dipped her finger into the small cup of olive oil and dripped some into the water.

I remained with that plate on my head for several minutes. Aunt Filippa was not convinced, and from time to time she dripped more olive oil. Then she scrutinized the shape of the drops.

The drops could take different forms. They could remain as they were, become wider, or even disappear completely. If the drop maintained the same shape it had when it was dripped, it meant that there was no hex on me. If the drop became wider, there was a real hex. Sometimes the drop disappeared completely, and that meant that there was a lot of hex. In my case, the drops disappeared, and for that reason Aunt Filippa dripped olive oil many times.

This boy has a lot of hex,” she said, “but I’ll take it out of him. I swear!”

To do that she made special signs around the plate and said a special prayer, which she had learned from her mother on Christmas Eve. It was a secret prayer that had been handed down from generation to generation. She then concluded, saying that I was now hex free thanks to her prayer.

At the time I barely understood her method of removing the hex, but with passing time I realized that what Aunt Filippa had done probably had a scientific basis. Words, thoughts, and feelings have vibrations. Everything vibrates in the universe. It means that each kind of vibration affects both organic and inorganic matter, including the shape of the drops that Aunt Filippa used to diagnose the hex. In other words, if my body vibrations were good the drops assumed a certain shape; otherwise they got broad or sometimes disappeared.

MOSCOW

Meanwhile, I started to get used to living in Moscow, and decided to visit the monuments and places of that fantastic city by myself. By taking the subway, which was not far from my apartment, I got off near Red Square. It was a place that I had seen many times on TV during the Soviet Union’s parades.

I entered the square by passing through an archway. On the opposite side of the square, I saw the breathtaking view of Saint Basil’s Cathedral. It had been built by order of Tsar Ivan Vasilyevich, also known as Ivan the Terrible, to commemorate the conquest of Kazan and Astrakhan. It is the symbol of Russian art and culture. Legend says that when the Ivan the Terrible saw the masterpiece, he was so impressed with its beauty that he ordered that the architects who had designed it should be blinded, so they could not built something similar again.

The entire Kremlin area is full of masterpieces. Even the walls and towers of the Kremlin are works of art. Not far from there is the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, which is the tallest Orthodox church in the world. It stands by the bank of the Moskva River. It was rebuilt after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It had been razed to the ground by Stalin, who had planned to build the Palace of the Soviets on its site. Stalin couldn’t carry out his plan, and now the Cathedral of Christ the Savior stands to signify that it is impossible to suppress religion, which is rooted in the human heart.
