There are many great spiritual uses of salt. There was a period in my life when I was going through a terrible time with The Wicked Baby Father. He was just the worst man, and I, as a young girl, strong as I thought I was, was so tired of all the stress and disrespect. His new girlfriend was sending juju (obeah/voodoo) left, right and center at me. Those times were horrible even for me to remember, but as I have told you all before I take comfort looking back at them now because I realize it all happened to put me on my path, so it was worth it, hard to say but definitely true.
My mother knew a man, a reader, a very great diviner called Mr. Mitchel. Mr. Mitchel was a Jamaican man, a Bishop in the Christian church. He knew the bible from front to back and could preach it very well, but a greater diviner than he was hard to find, peace be unto you Mr. Mitchel where ever you are in the realm of spirit. I went to him and complained that this girl was like a ghost riding my back and whatever she was doing made me and the wicked baby father argue everyday. I cried and complained that there was no peace in the house, I wanted peace, I could take the fighting no longer. Mr. Mitchel told me to go home and put salt in a dish with a piece of bread on the plate and I was to put it somewhere high in my house, which I did. He cautioned me not to let the salt spill, not even a drop.
I had a live-in nanny at the time and she was my confidant, a source of comfort to me, as she witnessed my pain and shame at the hands of this man and his horrible woman. She was an older lady from Jamaica and she saw me doing what Mr. Mitchel had told me to do. She asked me what was that for? I told her and she made a face which seemed to say “hmmm… I don’t think that’s a good idea,” so I asked her what was the problem with what I was doing? She went on to tell me that salt creates problems and she did not believe that it would calm the house down.
I told her that Mr. Mitchel cautioned me not to allow even a drop to fall, so I am being careful, but still she did not look convinced and made a face while she walked away. Determined for peace I went ahead and fixed the salt and bread as he told me, but as if pure bad luck, as I placed the dish and all its fixings on a shelf in my room, the whole lot fell and all spilled all over the ground. Bangarang!!!! was the sound the dish made as it fell and it was to be hell in my house between Mr. Wicked and me for a week!
Of course I received the “I told you so” from the nanny, but I have never forgotten that incident. Ever since then I have been very careful with salt. Let me make this clear however, salt can be sprinkled to remove negativity and destroy spiritual work, but chaos only happens when it is spilled as oppose to being sprinkled by human hands, in other words when you are sprinkling or throwing salt for a particular purpose then you have nothing to fear. God is such a wonderful God, because it is uncanny how many signs we get from our foods, nature, animals, and even your body parts etc. warning us of impending doom, or of good things to come.
If salt is spilled, look out for quarrel or fight, black pepper or any kind of pepper, the same thing – quarrel. If you are eating food and it falls to the ground your ancestors need your attention, or if a black cat crosses your path it is not a good sign – I never believed this one about the cat, but I have since proven it, yup it is true! If a dog cries at night someone will die, and certain birds if you see them at nights, like the Owl, especially a white one, death of a close relative it near, right hand itches, money is coming in, left hand itches money is going out, for some people it’s the reverse and so many more tell-tale signs to aid us in this life but let me continue with the Salt topic.
Salt is a purifier of many things. Salt cleanses and cures. The holy water of the Roman Catholic Church is prepared by exorcising and blessing salt and water separately, after which the salt is dissolved in the water and a benediction pronounced upon the mixture. If you work in a hospital or around sick people or animals put salt in a vial make sure to cover it securely and wear it around your neck to ward of any energy which could come through to you (some peoples sickness are not real, some of them are spiritual attacks a.k.a obeah that manifests to the person as an illness). Also crystal cleansed in salt water does the same thing.
Salt on its own can suck away dark energy, it is that powerful. Salt preserves and seasons food. The bible refers to salt a lot, for example the Sodom and Gomorrah story, Abraham’s nephew Lot chose to live in these cities because they had much water and good grazing lands for his sheep ( Genesis 13:8-13 ). Due to the sins of the citizens of these cities, God destroyed them with fire. Lot and his family escaped, but his wife became a pillar of salt when disobeyed God’s command not to look back at the cities after they left them ( Genesis 19:24-26 ). Her punishment ironic, because the place this happened now lies underneath a sea of salt water.
The Yoruba people of South Western Nigeria has a saying which goes, “no matter how boastful the soup, it is the salt that stars the show.” If salt is not added to food, it has no flavor. When salt is added to sacrifices it wakes up the deities. Use salt and blue crushed together and sprinkle in the four corners of your house to ward off bad dreams.
Place salt in a white cloth and sew the cloth, put it in your right shoe when you are going somewhere or in some neighborhood that you may not trust for safe keeping, do this for your children also for their protection. The Ocean is salt water and it one of the best places you can go to release bad energies, because of the salt. Add salt to your coffee to make it taste better. Take a salt bath every seven days, use salt and water to help you remember your studies and pass your tests, and make your professors like you, lol. (ok that is cheating, so I will not explain that one). Overall, salt is one of the three metaphysical S’s.
If you know how to use salt, you will fear nothing.

Good day. Please is there any way to know if your ex is yours and if yes, how do you bring him back? Thanks
What does it mean when you pour salt on a white handkerchief and stand on it then pray , , pour the salt in the water and pour outside, is it a good thing
I like to join
I usually dream that i am still in the secondary school which i have left 16 years ago , sometimes i dream that i am still in my old nebourhood which i have left 5years ago… sometimes i will be removing white stuff that look coconut chaf from my mouth this dream do continue… please how do i pray or use salt for this kind of dreams??
This is really interesting
Do a spiritual cleansing of your home. At the office and on yourself. To dream being in school yet you are done.there is an alter setup and working against you. This leads to slow achievements and the likes
It’s called spirit of setback
I’ve read and I really do appreciate your work. Is there anyway one can get connected to you on a private base so we talk more? Thanks
Can you explain to me more about the while salt and putting it into water and what j do after when take it outside ..am facing a hard time in my home… Plus spirit is having sex with me in the form of my boyfriend we can’t agree
Take the salt into your palm, offer a prayer to your God and thank him for all that He has done in your life, ask him to bless the salt. The blessed salt purifies and removes any negative energies by devil/Satan/Lucifer/demons in your life, marriage, business, job, house. Mix the salt with water and drink a little and sprinkle the rest on your hands, feet and body.
Mention the spiritual spirit and throw salt over your left shoulder to cast it away.
Do this every morning upon waking up and before sleeping.
All demons and spirits will flee.

Hi Natalie, nice of you to comment. Please change your name as we already have a Natalie blogging with us, you can add o2 or something to it if you like.
Thank you for letting me know. Im trying to change it to Natty*.
What’s your opinion about what’s been happening and how I’m using or can use the salt?
Please don’t be offended I need you to direct me more on the salt bathing, I’m really facing a lot of troubles
I have a question about the salt and bread on the plate. Am I suppose to salt and bread on separate plates? You mentioned dish and plate? Or do i put the salt and bread on the same plate next to each other. Thanks, I need to do this soon. Please respond.
Blue, that work was work that I did. It was not what I recommended for others. Re-read the post. That plate had fallen and created hell in my house.
Blessings and thank you for the response to my question.
I did it already last night…..
I placed the plate on the shelf 1st. Then I placed the bread on the plate. then i sprinkle the salt next to the bread nothing spilled. I just wanted to make sure it was okay to use the same plate for both the salt and bread and if it was okay for them to be touching each other… meaning the salt and the bread}. I need to make sure I did it right.
Blue, I already told you that i never instructed anyone to do that work. I told a story and you interpreted it as work. Remove it and read over the post!
You want me to remove the plate ( with the salt and bread) and trash it where?
I want to dispose of this the correct way. Don’t need a additional problems in my life. Look forward to hearing back from you
Is there anyway we can contact you directly by phone?
Great piece! Glad it found me.
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it,

Obara, I too agree with the others who are encouraging you to write books. You have a natural talent of explaining things to people. This is just confirmation that yous hould indeed do it. You have a motherly aura that comes across naturally and lovingly.

The out pouring of love and support is going to overwhelm you but will spur you to write even more. You have a knack to explain very complicated issues in a simple down to earth way that draws the reader in and make us not only love you but want… Read more »
Ase ooooo, you are truly spiritual Ty mi deh yah ah wonder if mi odda write unda obara meji and see yuh ansa deh mi tell yuh bout you lol I write that way because I want people to truly understand what I am writing or trying to share, too often I gave read books on metaphysics laden with phraseologies or words and terminology that the average person would not understand no matter how much of a scholar they are, when I write it is from the heart and I seem to think I am actually speaking to my people
I love your writing. When you write I can feel your emotions, see your heart, feel your pain, admire your strength and know that God is working through you. You are not pretentious or trying to fake intellect. You are who you are and is settled in your skin. Trust me, there are many out there looking for a sample of you truths.
Go see di line for the book signing…lol
PLEASE you mentioned salt as one of the three metaphysical S”s,what are the other TWO. Thanks

Oya in Nature is represented by the wind, storm hurricane, she is the wind before which blows before a heavy storm, her children brings change,but that change can come through chaos, she is hot headed so don’t mess with her or take her for a fool, because if you do, soon you will know who is the fool. think of Zena the warrior princess, and you will see Oya!!

After washing it and cleaning it, my granmother used salt to pack the wound daily. It was a very deep wound… Read more »
ah coming, @MTH
Is it just bread and salt to create piece in your house? What kind of bread, how much salt? Do you cut the bread or just break it? Another question Obara, can you highlight the importance of every hour during a fasting? Also, when you place water under your bed, how often must it be changed? Since coming on this site, I know that wayward spirits are actively most between 3:00-5:00 a.m.
some people will say use the salt you have, but I say buy a container of salt and keep it to the side and use that one only for spiritual purposes, and you can use any iodized salt, rock salt is very good also. me just use any salt and it work for me
Thanks Obara. This is helping me to grow spiritually as well as identify things. One question, what kind of salt is to be used and how much? Whatif I only have the salt thatI am now cooking with, can I used some of that? Obara a learm mi come fah fi learn. I am going to share something with you, I am heading off to a very brief meeting.
lol, yes you can print then but if you are going to do anything with it, you must give me credit, lololololllll..go head, and I am happy you are here, thanks for asking because right as we speak a group of people has formed a spiritual group and they are teaching from the contents here, they all read every day, and they say they have learned so much, like you they contacted me and asked
Obara, I waited for this post. Let me ask your permission, is it ok to print and save your articles? I have taken this to a new level, not even when I am in school do I pay so much attention. I normally read once to get a gist of what the article is saying. I read twice for content, three times for it to be committed to memory. (What a heap a time mi have pan fi mi han eeh?). Dat said, Obara yu post dem a shat! This is a school wey mi nuh waan nuh holiday fram.
