"They place great store in triangles, circles and symbols. Each of their saints/spirits has his own symbol. Each of their many Exus does also. And each of us here on earth have a triangle that he can use when he wishes to get closer to the 'spirits of nature' [which are not to be confused with the Spirits of the Dead]. These triangles are used only for good, never for evil, and they must be used by the right person and in the right position.

Your Life Force or cosmic current comes from the SOUTH. Take a large new white cloth and cut it into a triangle shape. Now with yellow paint draw this triangle in the center of the cloth, making sure that the top point is in line with the top point of your scissored cloth and that the design is large enough for a human being to kneel inside it without his feet touching the edge of the design:
When you wish something, take this cloth and place it on the ground [bare earth is more powerful than man-made-floor] with the apex of the triangle pointing Exactly SOUTH. take off your shoes and stand behind the base of the painted triangle without touching the design. Ask protection and guidance of your particular spirit/saint, telling him how much you believe in him and how much you need him. Then ask your favor. If you wish a material favor [a new house, a car, more money, etc] place an even number of candles at each point of the triangle. If the request is non-material [health, love, friendship, etc.] place an odd number of candles at each point. Strike a fresh match for each candle and repeat your request each time a candle begins to burn.
If you are trying to get rid of the evil eye, bad luck or bad health, then stand with your feet touching the apex and your back to the SOUTH. Bend down and touch the apex with your hands and light an odd number of candles.
No should you be working with a medium, she [or he] kneels in the center of the triangle, always facing SOUTH, and if she says the Spirit demands a special offering like a chicken, some beads, a bottle of alcohol, etc., make sure that these gifts are place along the edges of the cloth and Never ON The Cloth itself.
