I have 22 years of initiation in the Regla de Ocha, Palo, and Espiritismo. I have studied extensively with some of the best teachers in North America and the Caribbean, and I have been very well trained. After speaking with Mike for an hour by phone, I can say without hesitation that he is among the very best Spiritualists I have encountered anywhere in the world. I am not easily impressed by any means, but I am extremely impressed with Mike’s ability to “read” and provide solutions to very serious problems. I will say that a spiritual consultation with Mike is the equivalent of consulting with a Harvard-trained surgeon for a medical issue.
There are several types of Spiritual readers that offer their services to the public. Sadly, many are outright frauds. Some readers are honest, have good intentions, and have a sincere desire to help – but are often inaccurate in their readings and/or ineffective in recommending solutions. Some are good at what they do, but cater only to big-dollar clientele. Mike from Botanica Oggun is in the very rare top 5% of Spiritualists who are not only honest and sincere, but also “scary” accurate in their reading. To anyone reading this, I say: If you have any need for Spiritual guidance on any issue you may be facing, book a consultation with Mike as soon as you can. He is everything a Santero/Palero/Espiritista is supposed to be! The only thing that doesn’t make sense to me is the ridiculously low fee he charges for his services. His readings are easily worth thousands of dollars – as is any advice from a top professional in their field. For every 100 priests you could have a consultation with, you would only encounter ONE on Mike’s level (that is, if you were extremely lucky). He has my highest recommendation.
I first visited Michael in 2011 after being referred by a relative. I was in a very low place in my life with a lot of uncertainty of where I was heading and I had so many unanswered questions I was battling with. Although I would say I am a spiritual person with faith, I found myself with no hope and felt my life was at a complete stand-still. I was extremely depressed. Many areas of my life were being affected, including my relationship with my partner, my son, my finances, and my future. Initially Michael would not read me, but after talking for a while, he agreed to do so. What I learned in my first reading was amazing. Michael communicates with your angels and ancestors and he tells you “like it is.” He may even tell you things you don’t want to hear about yourself but in reality it is what you “need to hear.” The instructions he gives you to follow help you to make the necessary changes in your life to move forward. Months after my first reading, I found myself to begin to be at peace and to have hope and deeper faith.
Since last year, my life has taken a different turn for the better. These days I feel like I am carrying a much lighter load and my life in general is much brighter. I am optimistic and hopeful for my future. I have gone through many productive changes in a short period of time. I have seen improvement in myself, my behavior, and my son. I have deeper faith and I am on the right track for spiritual growth.
Many of us live in this world in a bubble sometimes not realizing that darkness is all around us and that people can curse your life. We don’t realize that our past can continue to haunt us if we don’t let it go. He can tell you how to remove curses and even tell you who has cursed you. He can also tell you how to make peace with your angels and ancestors. He opens your eyes to things you don’t even realize are happening around you and makes you aware, like the importance of forgiving people who hurt you and asking for forgiveness from those that you’ve hurt. He can do a cleansing of your body and of your home. The items he sells in his store are for specific purposes and he and wife Yolanda will explain how to use them.
I will always be grateful for the things that Michael told me and taught me. He is a very down to earth person and his way of talking to you is straight forward and direct. But you know they say that the truth will set you free. He and his wife Yolanda are sincere and very caring people. I feel they are truly there to help. I like to visit them from time to time and Michael always makes me laugh and I always leave their feeling better about myself and my future.
I will always regard Michael and Yolanda as friends and know that I can count on them if and when I need direction.
