PRAYER TO PETITION OUR LADY GUADALUPE
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary of Guadalupe, that in thy celestial apparitions on the mount of Tepeyac, thou didst promise to show thy compassion and pity towards all who, loving and trusting thee, seek thy help and call upon thee in their necessities and afflictions. Thou didst promise to hearken to our supplications, to dry our tears and to give us consolation and relief. Never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, either for the common welfare, or in personal anxieties, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Mary, ever Virgin Mother of the True God! Though grieving under the weight of our sins, we come to prostrate ourselves in thy august presence, certain that thou wilt deign to fulfill thy merciful promises. We are full of hope that, standing beneath thy shadow and protection, nothing will trouble or afflict us, nor need we fear illness, or misfortune, or any other sorrow. Thou hast decided to remain with us through thy admirable image, thou who art our Mother, our health and our life. Placing ourselves beneath thy maternal gaze and having recourse to thee in all our necessities we need do nothing more. O Holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us.
(Here mention your petition.)
ABOUT OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
BACKGROUND AND HISTORY
Our Lady of Guadalupe (Spanish: Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe), also known as the Virgin of Guadalupe (Spanish: Virgen de Guadalupe) is a celebrated Roman Catholic icon of the Virgin Mary. Under this title, she is officially proclaimed by the Roman Catholic Church as the Patroness of Americas, Empress of Latin America and Protectress of the Unborn Children.
Juan Diego went back later and saw the lady again. He told her that the bishop wanted proof, and she instructed Juan Diego to go to the mountain top, where he found Castillian roses, which were native to BishopJuan de Zumarraga's hometown and could not possibly bloom during wintertime. Juan Diego cut the roses, placed them in his apron-like tilma and returned to the bishop; an imprint of the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared on the tilma from the residue of the soil and roses.
Following the Spanish Conquest in 1519–21 a temple of the mother-goddess Tonantzin at Tepeyac outside Mexico City was destroyed and a chapel dedicated to the Virgin built on the site. Newly converted Indians continued to come from afar to worship there. The object of their worship, however, was equivocal, as they continued to address the Virgin Mary as Tonantzin.
The first record of the painting's existence is in 1556, when Archbishop Alonso de Montufar, a Dominican, preached a sermon commending popular devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, a painting in the chapel at Tepeyac, where certain miracles had lately been performed. Days later he was answered by Francisco de Bustamante, head of the Colony's Franciscans and guardians of the chapel at Tepeyac, who delivered a sermon before the Viceroy expressing his concern that the Archbishop was promoting a superstitious regard for a painting by a native artist, Marcos Cipac de Aquino:
"The devotion that has been growing in a chapel dedicated to Our Lady, called of Guadalupe, in this city is greatly harmful for the natives, because it makes them believe that the image painted by Marcos the Indian is in any way miraculous."
The next day Archbishop Montufar opened an inquiry. The Franciscans repeated their claim that the image encouraged idolatry and supersition, and testified that it was painted by "Marcos the Indian." Appearing for the Dominicans, who favored allowing the Aztecs to venerate the Guadalupe, was the Archbishop himself. The matter ended with the Franciscans deprived of custody of the shrine and the tilma mounted and displayed within a much enlarged church.
The first extended account of the image and the apparition comes in Imagen de la Virgen Maria, Madre de Dios de Guadalupe, a guide to the cult for Spanish-speakers published in 1648 by Miguel Sanchez, a diocesan priest of Mexico City. An anonymous Nahuatl language narrative, Huei tlamahuiçoltica ("The Great Event"), appeared at around the same time, probably written in 1649 by Luis Lasso de la Vega and based on Sánchez's narrative, which it closely mirrors. This contains Nican mopohua ("Here it is recounted"), a tract about the Virgin which contains the story of the apparition and the supernatural origin of the image, plus two other sections, Nican motecpana ("Here is an ordered account"), describing fourteen miracles connected with Our Lady of Guadalupe, and Nican tlantica ("Here ends"), an account of the Virgin in New Spain.
Pope John Paul II visited the shrine in the course of his first journey outside Italy as Pope from 26 to 31 January 1979, and again when he beatified Juan Diego there on 6 May 1990. In 1992 he dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe a chapel within St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. At the request of the Special Assembly for the Americas of the Synod of Bishops, he named Our Lady of Guadalupe patron of the Americas on 22 January 1999 (with the result that her liturgical celebration had, throughout the Americas, the rank of solemnity), and visited the shrine again on the following day.
On 31 July 2002, the Pope canonized Juan Diego before a crowd of 12 million, and later that year included in the General Calendar of the Roman Rite, as optional memorials, the liturgical celebrations of Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin (9 December) and Our Lady of Guadalupe (12 December).
INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM WIKIPEDIA WEBSITE
"The Mystery Of The Eyes"
From The Sancta.org website
According to many scientists who have inspected the image, it seems that in her eyes, in both of them and in the precise location as reflected by a live human eye, could be seen many figures that have been extensively analyzed and seem to correspond to the shape and size of human figures located in front of the image.
In 1929, Alfonso Marcue, who was the official photographer of the old Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City, found what seemed to him to be a clear image of a bearded man reflected in the right eye of the Virgin. Initially he did not believe what was before his eyes. How could it be? A bearded man inside of the eyes of the Virgin?. After many inspections of many of his black and white photographs he had no doubts and decided to inform the authorities of the Basilica. He was told that time to keep complete silence about the discovery, which he did. More than 20 years later, on May 29, 1951, Jose Carlos Salinas Chavez, examining a good photograph of the face, rediscovers the image of what clearly appears to be a bearded man reflected in the right eye of the Virgin, and locates it on the left eye too.
Since then, many people had the opportunity to inspect closely the eyes of the Virgin on the tilma, including more than 20 physicians, ophthalmologists. The first one, on March 27, 1956, was Dr. Javier Torroella Bueno, MDS, a prestigious ophthalmologist. In what is the first report on the eyes of the image issued by a physician, he certifies what seems to be the presence of the triple reflection (Samson-Purkinje effect) characteristic of all live human eyes and states that the resulting images are located exactly where they are supossed to be according to such effect, and also that the distortion of the images agree with the curvature of the cornea. The same year another ophthalmologist, Dr. Rafael Torrija Lavoignet, examined the eyes of the image with an ophthalmoscope in great detail. He observed the apparent human figure in the corneas of both eyes, with the location and distortion of a normal human eye and specially noted a unique appearance of the eyes: they look strangely "alive" when examined. Many other examinations by ophthalmologists have been done of the eyes of the image on the tilma after these first ones. With more or less details all agree with the conclusions of the ones mentioned above.
A new and interesting kind of analysis of the eyes started in 1979, when Dr. Jose Aste Tonsmann, Ph D, graduated from Cornell University, while working in IBM scanned at very high resolutions a very good photograph, taken from the original, of the face on the tilma. After filtering and processing the digitized images of the eyes to eliminate "noise" and enhance them, he reports he made some astonishing discoveries: not only the "human bust" was clearly present in both eyes, but another human figures were seen as reflected in the eyes too. Dr. Aste Tonsmann published his last studies on the eyes on the tilma in the book "El Secreto de sus Ojos", with complete details and photographs of his work . Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of the studies is his conclusion that Our Lady of Guadalupe not only left us her miraculous image as proof of her apparition but some important messages too. These messages were hidden in the eyes on the image until our times, when new technologies would allow them to be discovered, when they are most necessary. That would be the case with the image of a family in the center of the Virgin's eye, in times when families are under serious attack in our modern world. The image of various human figures that seem to constitute a family, including various children and a baby carried in the woman's back as used in the 16th century, appears in the center of the pupil, as shown in this great image of the right eye highlighting the family, generously provided by Dr. Tonsmann.

Paranormal experiences occur in different ways and take different forms. We take a lot of pride in what we offer in our store. This is our life and we love what we do. We have been involved in the metaphysical field for many years, and we have established many great connections and relationships through our work that enable us to offer items from all over the world to you.
We would like to address that we are selling metaphysical items, and as such, much of our information is received by hearsay, folklore, mythological tales, and channeled information. As such, we will not be held liable for what does/does not happen after you have purchased one of our items. Our items are clearly labeled, “No Returns Accepted” because of the nature of the business we are in. When you purchase one of our items you are fully understanding this, and taking full responsibility for yourself and your purchase. “Magick” is different for each and every person, and the results you experience are different. Each one of us on this earth experiences the world differently, the same way we experience the metaphysical differently than one another. We are passing along and re-homing many spiritual companions, passing on and delivering to you channeled messages and hearsay regarding these spirits and/or haunted items, and we are not responsible for your experiences with them after that point and we are not responsible for the “validity” of the information. We do study and research as much as possible after we have received channeled information to decide whether or not it resonates with ourselves after we have received it. We ask that you do the same.
If it resonates with you, please purchase from us. If it does not, please do not purchase from us. There is no way for us to know whether or not our spirits and the information we have received is truth. We want to believe our spirits have told us and our friends the truth, but we are not “guaranteeing” any of the information we have provided.
Channeled information from any source be it spirits, extra-terrestrials, or humans, is exactly as we have stated – there is no way for us to verify truth from untruth, and so we just provide the information as we have received it. This is not a place for the skeptical, as magick has never and will never work for those who do not believe in it. It is as simple as that.
We feel we were called to do this job in this lifetime, and we ask that you buy from us accordingly as it resonates inside you.

All purchases with Money Order as the chosen method, that have not sent confirmation of payment within 24 hours, or have otherwise spoken to me, will be terminated, and appropriate Bonanza feedback will be left.
Payments are due within 3 calendar days of purchase. If you have an extenuating circumstance, or are requesting a payment plan, please email us FIRST, before purchasing, to work this out. We do not allow payment plans without a substantial deposit placed on the item at the time the agreement is made. Substantial down payment is due via money order or cash, not using credit card methods. No exceptions will be made to that rule.
SHIPPING – We ship within 3-5 business days of your payment.

We usually ship First Class or Priority, and we do offer International shipping. If you need to receive an item quicker than 3-5 business days, please let us know and we will adjust your shipping cost to reflect an expedited shipping rate. This may not be available during Christmas season, as unfortunately, the post office will not guarantee how quickly items will arrive during the month of December.
The cost of shipping internationally is different than the cost for shipping in the United States. We do try to ship using First Class whenever possible, as the cost is lower. Please remember when we are sending items outside of the United States, we are not responsible for any customs delays, or custom fees that may occur. Although seldom, it does happen. We occasionally have issues with the postal service due to natural disasters and holidays, so please plan your shopping accordingly if you are on a tight timeframe.
Please Note: Some of our magickals are custom cast and/or created and crafted AFTER your purchase. Most are pre-cast/conjured and ready for Immediate shipment.

COMBINED SHIPPING DISCOUNT: We will combine items at no extra charge when paid for together in one invoice at check out, as long as the packaging will allow us to do so. Save Money when you buy more. Please email us when you are finished purchasing so that we can combine your invoice for you.
SPECIAL NOTES REGARDING INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: The United States heightened their security measures for packages shipped overseas on November 18, 2010. This has slowed down shipping times tremendously. Packages that used to take 7-10 days can take up to 4-6 weeks. Canada, Australia and the UK are particularly slow. We don’t have any control over this, so please be patient if your package takes longer than expected. Shipping Priority or Express often ensures that it will be delivered within 3 to 10 days. If you need an item shipped via Priority or Express Mail, fees are in excess of $20 starting, but please contact us immediately after you purchase, and before paying, so we can send you an adjusted invoice to accommodate the change in shipping cost. Delivery Confirmation is NOT actual Tracking nor is the International Custom Form number. These numbers are scanned in at time of mailing confirming the Post Office has the package and usually scanned again at the main mail sorting plant near here—AFTER that they do NOT usually update until AFTER delivery. If you wish true constantly updated tracking we can add that for an extra charge but it is very expensive.You will generally receive an automated email from Paypal when your item is shipped. If you feel that you must be able to track the package, you will need to pay for the more expensive shipping method. This is very expensive, but is your only way of ensuring that you know your item is safe. Unfortunately, with the issues in each country, we cannot guarantee, that after an item leaves the United States, it will arrive to you without interference. The post office, and ourselves, have had countless debates over this. They also have issues with countries charging their citizens extra customs fees randomly, this is also something we have no control over, and although it is only occasional, it is something that we cannot expect nor guess about.
