As everybody knows, the Aztec culture has a lot of knowledge and wisdom that, till this days it have been used for the modern science.
Saturday June 28, 2012, 2:00 a.m., suddenly, in the dark bedroom, my wife and I start to listen a tiny voice saying no! no! no!, then we woke up, ran to Rene’s bedroom and we found her, sitting in her crib, with her eyes closed (we assumed that she was still asleep), moving her finger side to side saying no! no! no! in the moment we get close to the crib, she opened her eyes and that was like somebody turned on the stereo with a death metal record in it. Screaming and crying, screaming and crying in a volume so high that the dogs started to bark in the backyard.
By 3 am, she was still awake and watching the Backyardigans ( I don’t know why tv has cartoons at 3 o’clock in the morning but that is another story) and I was trying to made her sleep I’d singing, caressing her head, etc. and nothing. In some moment I decided it was enough and turned off the tv and the lights, with Renne in my side we laid in the bed to sleep. That … was my biggest mistake, the next second Renee was crying and screaming as like we were hitting her with a shovel. I jumped out the bed grabbed her and she was still crying but saying ca.., ca.., et….. which means car to the street! She wanted to hit the road in the car at 3:30 am. I was trying to sleep her. Finally at 4 am we get into the car and at 4:15 she fell asleep as if nothing happened.
The Granny of my wife has an adult maid, Irene, native of a town in the Mexican state of Veracruz hidden in the mountains. Her ancestors are member of an Aztec-descending tribe. My wife told them the granny and Irene about our adventure of Saturday. Irene told her that behavior is a sign a what they call “mal de ojo” (eye damage), she explain that when somebody want to touch, grab or just say hi to a baby and for a reason the person can’t , he or she send bad vibrations to the baby and that is what make the baby kind of angry.
She gave this recipe to “heal” the “mal de ojo”
1 chicken egg at normal temperature, don’t refrigerated.
1 glass of water
1 branch of basil
1 teaspoon of alcohol.
Wrap the egg with the basil then bathe it with the alcohol, gently slide the egg around the baby’s head meanwhile you make a pray. Then open the egg and empty it on the water if there are bubbles in the water or you see the yolk in the bottom of the glass with lines of white floating there were bad energies around your baby. The baby must get calm. If the yolk is in the top of the water and the water clear, the baby has something else.
I don’t know but it worked for me. Renee now sleeps as a baby should.
