So nearly a year had passed since the last reading and my husband was all out of sorts about everything. He seemed to be in a deep depression. So I sent him to Chencha again. She told him that he didn’t have any motivation to do anything and that all he had been doing was sitting around the house. (true) Then she said he was fighting a lot with his family for no real reason. (true) That his wife was worried about him. (true) That animal husbandry wasn’t for him as his animals up and die. (true) And further that some female was trying to make he and I separate. (unconfirmed) When she passed the egg around him and cracked it, there was some sort of animal. Basically at this point, he was up shit creek without a paddle. So it was 9 sessions the full work up, and another reading for him.

Session 2 of 9–egg still dirty

Session 3 of 9–salty egg

And he gave up after that. It was taking too much time I suppose. He would get up at 5 am to stand in line. Numbers are given out starting at 7 am. The lower the number, the earlier you get in, but there was always a wait. Chencha now only saw people Tuesdays and Fridays. I think I mentioned before that my husband is not a patient man.

At this point, we decided to rent a local and sell tacos. He was hesitant about this but I kept insisting that it would be good. So gradually we got set up and ready to go. But before he would open, he went to see Chencha again. He only had her read the cards, no cleansing. She told him that if he rented the local for his business, it would start off slow, about 22 days of slow, but then would do well. He would have the opportunity to work for someone else (I am supposing his brother here) but that it wouldn’t be in his best interests to work for him. Something I told him as well. Anyway, she gave him a spray called Llama Clientes that he should spray around to attract clients. It smells like old lady. And she told him to buy red and white carnations to put in the business. This he did. But just like with the cleansing sessions, he gave up on the tacos too. (See Failing at your own business–Taco Express)

La Curandera–A third reading

An egg is passed about the body in a cleansing, then cracked open into a water glass. Salt means the person is “salada” or under bad mojo. Anything bloody in the egg means serious problems.

My husband went again, without me this time, in the hopes that…well I don’t know what he hoped for really, but he went.

My husband’s life was on the upswing this time. He asked about our son. Chencha said that he was corajudo (quite a handful) but in the future he would receive many benefits from him. And he asked about his wife, yours truly. She said that his wife was working tremendously hard for the family and that eventually we all would be in better shape financially, but he needed to be patient. And then she warned him that the enemy from before, a tall white man with big eyes, and a new enemy, a moreno (brown) man with freckles and glasses were hatching a plot and if he wasn’t careful he could end up in jail. So it would be better to not take any deals offered by those two.

Would you believe that two days later, A, his new best buddy who is brown, has freckles and wears glasses, drove up in a truck that he wanted to make the ‘deal’ of the century?

I tell you, Chencha is the real deal. But see, the thing is, I have repeatedly told my husband that A and the neighbor are up to no good, I don’t trust them because these deals aren’t all they are cracked up to be. I tell him for free. Furthermore, there isn’t anything surprising about me working so hard, nor our son being able to provide us benefits in the future. But some people only value advice they pay for.

La Curandera–A second reading

These cards, used to play baraja, are also used by curanderas to look into the present, past and future.

Two years later, I had an urge to go and see Chencha again. This time, it was personal. I was concerned that my involvement with the La Yacata business would risk the safety of my family and wanted to ask about it.

So my husband went and got us a number. He went for his consult in the morning and mine was later in the day. What she told him was he had an enemy, a tall white man, who was very envious of him and it would be better if he didn’t hang out with this person anymore. Then she said he still was “salado” very unlucky. He was not to go to any big cities or to leave the country at the moment. And that even in the matters of love, he was out of luck. Also that it was in his best interest not to drink until he healed completely.

So how close was she? Well, he decided that his enemy was our neighbor who could pass for any redneck in Tennessee as long as he didn’t speak. Then my husband had been considering going to Canada to look for work, as again he was out of a job. He was still recovering from a hernia operation and he himself noted that when he drank, the next day his wound ached. But men will be men, and he still drank. As for the love bit. . .well, there was that situation that he didn’t know about, but I didn’t mention that.

So in the afternoon, it was my turn. I prayed with her, just like before. She told me again that I became angry quickly and was slow to forgive and that I would live a long time. She said my finances were stable and that I had an enemy, blond with a big nose, someone who didn’t wish me well. But that didn’t bother me, a lot of people don’t like me. So what? Seemed a good description of Chuchi though.

So then I asked about La Yacata. She said there would be some resolution but it would be better if I distanced myself from these activities because the men that I was working with were in it for their own benefit and that when they got what they wanted out of it, they would leave me holding the bag.

Not 2 weeks later, the president J, resigned from his post at a meeting, leaving us startled and in charge. (The Battle for Power Continues ) I suppose he had gotten what he wanted, although I’m not sure I will ever know exactly what that might have been.
