A Simple Prayer
Dr. ClauDean "ChiNaka" Kizart is an Iyalorisa (priestess) and trained espiritista (spiritualist) who truly enjoys the work of co-creating spiritual products that help to bring enlightenment, blessings, LOVE and remove negativity. She learned the power of prayer through watching her Grandfather. Her Iya (Godmother) taught her the power of a simple prayer!

About Santería Blog
Iya Cynthia Duncan is a scholar, writer, and and Oshun Priestess. Her Blog regarding Lukumí Religion is accurate and informative.
"Most practitioners of Santería prefer the name Regla de Ocha or the Lucumí religion. Although it's practiced today by people all over the world, Regla de Ocha is generally defined as an Afro-Cuban religion that originated in what is today Nigeria and Benin in West Africa. The word Santería comes from Spanish and loosely translates as devotion to the saints, or santos. Many practitioners of the Regla Lucumi refer to the Orichas, or the deities of the religion, as saints or "santos." This tendency to combine terminology and concepts from Catholicism and West African religions is sometimes called religious syncretism."
