Gauchito Gil – The Cowboy Saint

CLICK HERE for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThere are many saints not officially recognized by the Roman Catholic Church, or by any other religion for that matter. One of the most popular among them is Antonion Gil, better known as the Gauchito Gil (Little Gaucho Gil). His popularity rose exponentially in the last few decades and he is considered miraculous by many people who venerate him. He might not be properly canonized, but he is informally considered to be a saint in Argentina. His cult is so widespread that everyone in the country at least knows of his existence.

When traveling from one town to another in the Argentine provinces, it is very common to see a tree with many red ribbons blowing in the wind, and underneath it a small wooden case that holds an image of Gauchito Gil. In some places there are even a small temple, or even a church dedicated to this saintly figure. None of them are recognized officially by the Catholic Church, but the service of a priest is not uncommon.

Gauchito Gil’s life came to a tragic end 142 years ago, on January 8, 1878, near Mercedes, Corrientes, in Argentina. His executioners were a group of policemen who had to transfer him to the courts of Goya, but who decided instead to execute him on the way there.

Gil was accused of being a deserter and a matrero (someone who lives in isolation to be out of reach from the law). But the laborers and peasants in the area knew him instead as a warrior for justice, who protected the weak, relieved the sick and avenged the humiliated. His enemies considered him a fearsome expropriator, as well as a healer capable of making people fall in love with him, or paralyzing them with his powerful eyes.

The Mysterious Phenomenon Of Ghost Ships

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe mysterious phenomenon of ghost ships has been around for centuries, and is still encountered once in a while, up to this day. The subject has always fascinated me!

Many people have sworn over the years that they had witnessed missing ships still sailing aimlessly on the high seas. It turned out that some of these ships were real and very much intact, but missing its captain and human crew members.

One of the vessels that have been found with much mystery attached to it is the MV Joyita, a merchant vessel from which all the passengers and crew mysteriously disappeared in the South Pacific in 1955. The merchant ship, carrying a cargo of medical supplies and 25 passengers, was headed for the Tokelau Islands. She never reached her destination.

The MV Joyita was searched for extensively, but there was no sign of the ship. Five weeks later the ship was found. All of the passengers and the crew were missing; and all of the clocks had stopped at the time of 10:25. What actually happened remains a mystery to this day.

In the year 1750, there was another merchant ship named the Sea Bird. She was headed home to Newport, Rhode Island, and a man named John Durham was her captain. She never did make it to port, but was seen drifting off the Rhode Island coast. She ran aground on Easton Beach. When the ship was boarded, a very happy and healthy dog and cat were found But, the crew was missing! Continue reading

The African River Man

click picture for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comDuring the time of my ukuthwasa (period of initiation to become a traditional healer or sangoma) some decades ago in Southern Africa, my mentor and some other village elders would join our group of ithwasa (sangoma trainees) by the campfire and discuss other spirits. That is, others in addition to those of our ancestors.

We heard many tales of other spirits who control the rivers, oceans and lakes, as well as those who live in the sky and control the rain. There were also stories told of sacred places where spirits inhabited mountains, trees and rocks. I loved hearing those stories from various individuals whom have had unique experiences and felt they had seen and communicated with those various spirits. Continue reading
