Santa Marta is the owner of my head and by far my most loved Misterio. She is a powerful Metresa, often misunderstood, who is known to be able to resolve even the most dire and seemingly unsolvable cases. Metresa Lubana, which is the punto which I am closest to, arrives in possession as a beautiful woman. She is the one point of this Spirit that walks and talks. You can see her in her image, right there in the middle, she is the woman. When she comes, she sprays her perfume on herself and her fula. She then ties her head up, sometimes in purple at other times in green.
She smokes long menthol cigarettes and drinks a nice tall glass of beer with some drops of another infusion poured into it. While she speaks, she often slurrs her “esses” and reveals her tongue quite often. She has no tolerance for laziness or inobedience. Many times, when someone doesn’t listen to her, she will start yelling at the person. If she is angry enough, she will quit working on that person’s behalf.
During consultas (consultations), many times she possesses me spontaneously to give a message to the person. When mounting a caballo, she winds her hips and the top half of her body until she is in full control of the body. Every once in a while, usually when the person has alot of evil on them, she will prefer to smoke a thick, heavy cigar instead of a cigarette.
She can dominate any lover and return any man or woman. Such is the power of Metresa Lubana. That is why she also has alot of influence in her servants’ love lives. She is the woman of her house, and if she doesn’t like it she will quit or she will leave. She advises her caballos in everything, she may let you slide once but the second time she needs to tell you, its not going to be nice.
She is the Woman of the Cemetary, and she is one hot woman. She is a very hot Misterio, and she does not take kindly to disobedience or mistakes. She doesn’t tolerate mistakes, at all. Some say that she can turn on you, but it is not so. She only turns on you, when you turn on her.
I have helped many of my brothers and sisters in this beautiful Religion, Las 21 Divisiones, to return Metresa Filomena Lubana into their lives. Because if you offend her, she can and does leave. She does not tolerates no disrespect and will go on her way, or send you along yours.
I’ve heard and know people who have not taken this Mysterious Woman seriously and they have oftentimes paid dearly for it. Sometimes these people act as if she was just any other dead in the cemetary, or some small Spirit that they may take on . . . . I feel bad for these poor, silly people . . . . .Trust me she is not . . .
When I work with Metresa Lubana to return a lover, I often work with her sister and one of Baron’s Centinelas. Her sister, known as Marta La Bruja Furiosa, Marta La Bruja Furiosa, Marta Furiosa assists Lubana in her works by affecting the minds of the victim (aka target) of a trabajo (spiritual work). Her job is to dominate and influence the head, so that the victim is constantly thinking of my client.
Many times, the target of the trabajo reports back to my client that they could not stop thinking of my client while they were apart. Targets have been known to tell my clients that they would see the client, or hear the client’s voice when the client was no where around. For this reason, I am very careful when working with her on a target.
When I was younger, first coming into my abilities, I worked with Metresa Lubana and Marta Furiosa for a client of mine named Natalia. The victim (Carlos) when he returned to my client (they had been separated for over two years) told my client that he heard her voice constantly calling him for the past month, and would see her everywhere. He would dream of her three to four times a week. And that he would see other things too, such as Spirits and that they would always be pushing him to her. They got back together.
Well . . . as time went on, he never stopped hearing his name called whenever they would be apart. And he was seeing and hearing other things as well. Eventually, this drove him crazy. Natalia couldn’t bear him anymore and left him. She reported that his family ended up putting him in a house for crazy people and he has been there since . . . . . .
This is why I like to do a consulta before I get to doing these types of trabajos. But, a trabajo can be done without a consulta . . . . as I did in the story above. One must be very careful when working with Marta Furiosa because she is a very powerful Misterio.
I will also work, depending on the case, for someone with Maguine as you can see her here. She will make the victim restless, constantly wandering around until he gets to the client.
Anyway . . . back to Metresa Lubana, Santa Marta. There are other puntos that are more commonly discussed such as La Morena or La Colora. These are puntos of Santa Marta that arrive as snakes. When she arrives (in possession) she slithers on the ground like a snake. Many times blessing certain areas of the house. She may bless the door, to clear the way for the other Misterios to come. She may bless the Badji (Altar) which gives more fuerza (strength) to its servidor. She may also go to a certain location and slither back to the ceremony to draw other Misterios into Fiesta De Palo. (Voodoo/ 21 Division Ceremony)
She is served with black coffee, no sugar on Mondays. Servidores also give her a cigar or cigarette, smoked in her name. In order to achieve certain goals, they may feed her an egg over a mound of coffee grounds covered in honey.
Filomena Lubana works with magical lamps (lampara), oils, perfumes, anchovies, snake oil (aceite de culebra), and red oil.
Lubana teaches her children a lot of magic and how to do work in a cemetery. Those who receive her punto, learn from her very quickly and are easily able to control and dominate almost every situation.
