    Suestro - Known as the 'Theft of the soul,' suestro is a magical
process for gaining influence over another person.  It is not as
usually believed, only one spell, if it is conducted properly, which
it rarely is, it involves eight separate and rather complex rituals.
For the most part, the first two rituals are all that is necessary,
as most people are not sufficiently in touch with themselves to
require that all eight rituals be used.   The two rituals which are
usually used are known as 'The putting to sleep of the Guardian
Angel, or The Sleeping'  and the 'Theft of the guardian spirit."  In
Afro American practices, which I will lump under the commonly used
name 'Santeria,' the second spell is known as the theft of the

    The amount of influence gained over another person in this way
is quite amazing, but the effects of this work, or at least of the
first two spells, can also be replicated in large part by peer
pressure and good salesmanship.

    Revocacion - This is the process of replacing the spirit of one
person with that of another.  It is often used to replace the spirit
of a child with that of  a deceased  parent, or grand parent.
Usually the replacing spirit is that of the child's grand parent or
great grand parent.  The spirits being used to enter the person (Not
in possession, this is a permanent or an almost permanent condition)
must be of the same biological sex as the person in whom it is to be
implanted.  This spell is often done to implant the spirit of a
successful but deceased person into a rebellious child.  While this
work is not at all complex, it is rarely performed.

    Both of these spells have origins going back to ancient times.
They have probably changed a great deal over the centuries, but
Babylonian clay tablets and Egyptian papyri both mention similar
spells.  Chines 'Ghost Workers' also have similar spells,

    I believe that the affair of the jail was due more to mutual
mass hysteria at discovering the presence of a spirit than anything
else.  The fact that the people all went into hysterics was a
typical after reaction to successful spiritual contact through a
ouija board.
