hmm.. I love hearing the stories. It is all very intriguing. My family is not a believer of these things. I have a friend who is a believer of it all. I know people who have been affected. My mom's friend daughter specially said her son got sick [here in the USA] he would throw everything up. Took him to the hospital, the doctors could not figure out what was wrong with him. He got tested for just about everything. Finally, she got a curandero, and he was cured. I know these people first hand, by the way.

I believe people have a gift for some stuff. Some however use it to throw brujeria to hurt and not help people. There's also santero's and paleros that use magic as their religion. If you don't believe that's cool, just don't cross them or your fucked lol

Firm believer in doing limpias. I guess its the way I was raised. I know a few people that have been gone through some bad stuff. So I don't brush it off.

Actually, it did! Something with her spine, she can't stand up straight

Lmao! Sorry, I forgot I had posted something here.

So the story goes that it started when she was a teenager. There were times my mom said she would start shaking and screaming that she felt like she was on fire. At first they thought she was crazy, but a few hours later these blisters appeared on random parts of her body and face. She has these burn scars all over her body now. Then she started having problems with her leg, her foot slowly started bending to the side. Then something happened with her spine. She was on a wheelchair for a while and had to go to therapy. She can walk, but with a cane and her foot is still bent to the side.

The scariest part is her nose. Hard to explain, but it looks like it caved in. I remember being scared to say hi to her when I was little, because I was so terrified. Anyway, she went to see all kinds of doctors. None of them could figure out what was wrong.

Brujeria comes into play because apparently my aunt was a little bit of a slut and stole some chicks boyfriend. Revenge is sweet, but damn all that for a stupid man? Totally not worth it.

My tia didn't hold any grudges though. She's the sweetest most genuine person I know.

I remember going to curanderos when I was a little kid. I don't believe in any of it. In my humble opinion, there is no such thing as magic.

What makes a priest who consecrates a host, turning it into the "Body of Christ" different from someone who casts "spells". Theres a difference between spirituality and Theology. Theology for the most part at least makes attempts to be rational while spirituality many times isn't and even shuns rationality.

im not sure how much truth there is to it but i heard that only the ones who believe in it can be affected by it. lol. pero tambien they may be the only ones who realize they are affected by it because of the fact that they believe in it =]

im a believer...back in new mexico all my life, one of the greatest rules of my house and my grandparents were to be wary of witches and brujas who can shape-shift. I could tell you a whole bunch of scary stories that apparently occurred within the family. I dont think it can affect you unless you fully immerse yourself in its power, basically believe in it. But from stories and personal experiences its usually the bad people or weak at heart who get hurt by spirits and magic and what not.

My great-tia apparently went mad living in the Albuquerque barrio of Barrelas, apparently there were many witnesses who saw a large group of short brown burrow owls perched in her tree calling her name....my grandfather said he was there, eventually she went crazy and took an axe to her velas and santos. One of the other elders swore his brother shot one of the owls, and that a woman down the block who was always accussed of brujeria was found bled to death from a gunshot wound to the arm (but i have heard similar stories from all over the southwest, so its hard to tell if wise tale or actual phenonmena).

...but after being bred and raised in a superstitious envrironment everytime i get a shiver or hairs raise on my arms and neck for no reason the first thought I have is bad spirits are around....it just depends on the person if they want to put their faith in it....no different than me crossing myself everytime i pass a descanso on the roadside or knock my visor three times going through yellow lights....
