Iyabo (child)
On the first day of the opening created the new Iyawo and orishas are placed
in his head, therefore received internally so that the Iyawó and
orishas are inextricably linked for life. On the second day, or Day
Middle the Iyawó is dressed in splendid silks and satins, which suggest the
now present in the royal throne to receive visitors who have come
indulge in the presence of the orisha and her new husband or wife. In the third
day, or Day of Ita, the new Iyawo learn what the future holds. One of the
time, the orishas that he or she has received speak to him giving her wise
advice. The Iyawó spends the rest of the week on the throne of orisha
resting and meditating about the new life that is only beginning.

For the rest of the year Iyawó kept in a state of protection is suitable for real spouse of the god or goddess. They should not allow anyone who has not been initiated to touch or take anything from their hands.

They can not leave before noon or after sundown, and can only wear clothes of the purest white. Can not wear makeup or any jewelry with the exception of the bracelets and necklaces they received during their initiation, and the first three months should eat sitting on a straw mat which denotes a sacred space in religion. They are also babies in their new life, so can not use a knife or fork to eat during that year or be in crowds or go to
marketplaces. They must not look in mirrors or portraits. Nothing should interfere with the fellowship of Iyawo with their orisha. He or she should always call them by name Iyawó and not by name and by the way, whenever they are called Iyawó cleaning and separating them is a bit of the old life which they abandoned at the time of initiation .

The Iyawó is pampered and indulged by santeros with which it comes into contact.
They are also carefully monitored because the Iyawo must be protected at all
coast and not be allowed to violate their sacred taboos. People
strangers or uninitiated often confused with Iyawos, believing
Iyawo about a person who was in limbo, something like being
between a "normal person" and a Santero, and not as the sacred character that
really are.

During the Iyaworaje or years during which the Iyawó follows his orisha, as the two get to know each other intimately, is forming the basis of life "Ghost" and understanding that are so innate a santero. An understanding based on a sacred communion that lasts for a lifetime ..... And more.

We must preserve the purity of our faith and love of neighbor
Santeria worship central creative force called Olodumare. From it comes all that exists, and everything returns to it. Olodumare expresses itself in the world created by Ashe.
Ashe is the life blood of cosmic power Olodumare to life, strength and justice. It is a divine power that many channels are more or less receptive. Ashe is the absolute basis of reality
Santeros We have a privilege and great responsibility
we must assume with conviction, a commitment that starts
a new life and we must be better every day with us and
the neighbor must guide their growth verses saints espiritualy
Help with their problems and needs and encourage them in their sorrows Encourage depressions and tired when they are killed

Urge to feed them with knowledge in the love of God, eggun, saints and to other people and ourselves
