This listing is for me to work with Nana Buruku on your behalf for 7 days, on my altar dedicated specifically to her. This working includes, prayers, offerings, cooking for her, the setting of lights, and burning incense on your behalf. I will devote my time daily to attending to her altar and providing fresh food and drink offerings on your behalf and submitting your petition to her. This working will begin on the next available time slot after your purchase, depending on my work schedule.
Nana Buruku is the grandmother of the Orishas. She is also a wisewomen and powerful witch. She has extraordinary healing powers and is an accomplished herbalist. She is seen as a strong, large, dark-skinned old woman. She has a commanding presence. Many times, even the uninitiated can feel her walk into a room. She loves children and her role of grandmother but has little tolerance for men. Because of this, she normally only has priestesses, no priests (unless a man was a woman trapped in a man’s body or at a minimum, really in touch with his feminine side). She is very spiritual and understands the sacredness of all life. She deals with big issues: life, death, karma, etc. Generally speaking, I know a problem is very serious when Nana shows up. This is not the Orisha you go to for simple relationship issues.
Nana Buruku watches over all women. She is the protector of everything female, including pregnancy, and she takes her role as wisewoman and grandmother very seriously. She has very little patience for men and surrounds herself mainly with priestesses. Women find comfort in her knowledge and strength. They flock to her for guidance and spiritual healing. Her protectiveness and skepticism can be misconstrued as rudeness, but do not be misled. She is the ultimate guardian of all of her spiritual grandchildren.
She embodies the archetype of the wisewoman. She is whom you go to for healing, to get pregnant or to end an unwanted pregnancy. In cases of rape, you can go to her for healing and justice. She is especially good with healing with spiritual energy such as Reiki and Chakra work. She lives in the swamp, near the ocean. For the most part, she likes being alone or with her grandchildren. Because of her strong connection with nature, environmental issues are also important to her. She hates the way we are destroying our planet. Nana can be cold, distant and judgmental. She absolutely will not tolerate spousal abuse (of either sex) or child abuse.
Once she makes up her mind about something, she will not budge. Nana and Ogoun do not get along. One story says that Ogoun tried to invade Nana’s swamp but was unsuccessful since metal will rust in a swamp. She carries with her a hook-shaped spiritual broom which she uses to guide her grandchildren on the proper path. Due to her volatile relationship with Ogun, Orisha of iron, Nana Buruku hates all things made from metal. Her sacrificial knife is made from sharpened bamboo and you will never find her wearing anything fashioned from silver, gold or any other metal. Her symbols are the moon, leaves, Baobab tree and the angelfish.
Nana can be found in hospitals, cemeteries (especially old ones), and nursing homes. She loves her swamps but can also be found at the seashore or in the forests. She likes to be near water, whether it is a lake, stream or the ocean. You can also find her at any Church dedicated to St. Anne.
It is important to show proper respect to this wise Orisha. Her altar should be decorated with a pink or purple handkerchief. Arrange the complete set of Nana Buruku tools on the handkerchief. Her spirit resides in a clay vase, and those worshiping her should decorate the vase with pink, purple and black paints. Light a 14 Day Plain Purple Candle before making your offerings to Nana Buruku. Once the candle is lit, place some tobacco, coconut, coffee beans and tomatoes on a clay plate. Pour some Crown Royal rum in a small glass and add it to your other offerings. Nana Buruku’s sacred number is seven, so try to incorporate that number into your gift to her - for example, place seven coffee beans on her altar.
Call upon this strong Orisha when you feel your chakras are out of balance or you need guidance on deeply spiritual matters. Her advice should never be sought out lightly, and her counsel should be respected and followed closely. Pay proper respect to Nana Buruku and she will offer you her sacred protection.
The children of Nana are very few in number. They love children but may not have biological children themselves. Whatever their spiritual path, they are spiritual women however they tend to be drawn to the occult. They are often healers and you will probably find them working in the medical field, as alternative healers or as caregivers in hospices or nursing homes.
