Filomena Lubana: Santa Marta Dominadora
She arrives in the form of a snake. Cleansing the environment, she will circle around men and clean their “auras” making them more desirable to the opposite sex. Metresa Lubana has arrived, and she does not speak. People within the Societe will pick up her messages telepathically, and know what to do. She will make her way to the front door cleansing the environment of any negativity.
This beautiful and powerful Metresa is represented by Saint Martha the Dominator. She is a powerful Lwa of the Black division and works with Baron Del Cementerio. She is hot, she is wild, and she is powerful. She is known for her ability to dominate a man, an enemy, or any uncontrollable situation. Her powers come from the ground up and she lives in the cemetery.
Many oil lamps have been lit under her aegis. She is popularly known throughout the Caribbean for working with this powerful form of magic resolving problem after problem. She is served with dark colors and prefers purple, green, black, and dark red. Her offerings are kept on the floor, as she is a snake and that is where she will come to get them.
When she mounts and while taking care of her in the badji, her children will offer her a plate with coffee grounds, a brown egg, and honey poured over both. She will also be offered a non-alcoholic malt drink. Many give her black coffee without sugar on Mondays.
One thing that many don’t know is that Metresa Lubana actually has four different vueltas, or paths. This is why many individuals are unable to recognize her when she manifests herself in one of the less well known paths. I will only tell you that much for now, yet if you ever become an initiate within our Sosyete, you will be taught the four different paths of Lubana and learn how to work with her effectively.
Her feast day is July 29th.
