One of the most fundamental and effective means of communication between the material world and the spiritual world is the boveda. A boveda or spiritual altar is a dedication to all the energies that surround us both ancestral and celestial. It calls together guardian spirits so that we may petition them collectively in order to attain the most effective results for our individual needs.
Water, also regarded as the universal conductor is one of our most basic elements. It is vital in sustaining all life and therefore it is the main ingredient in a boveda. The position of the water glasses is what determines the objective of the petition. Where you place your glasses can send out messages for defense, psychic development, love, money, truth, employment, etc.
