Superstitions in Brujeria
I love witchy Tumblr, I do, but I feel like a lot of the witchcraft reflected on this platform is very Eurocentric. Which is a great place for starting out and has helped me out personally so very much, especially when it came to connecting with the Norse gods. But! I feel it’s time for me to divulge more into my culture…that being Mexican brujeria and I couldn’t really find any posts about it, so I decided to make my own!
So a background I guess. Brujeria just means witchcraft in Spanish. It’s that simple and really rolls off the tongue for me. When I’m speaking to fellow Spanish speakers, I simply call myself a bruja. (Disclaimer: I am not fluent in Spanish by any means! I’m a guera and I’m sorry…)
So, I’m really hoping to share some of the superstitions I know and maybe how they can be used to power spells and such. I may get stuff wrong and since a lot of this is based on my own personal experiences, I don’t have any sources really. Please feel free to correct me or bring your own spin on things! I’m always down to learn more about my culture!
