  • Unsu...
    Pomba Gira is a hot one, is wise to tread carefully with Pomba Gira!
    • Well lately I have been not only dealing with matters of the heart but my sex drive has become insatisable wanting to become promiscouis and I have been fantasizing about dancing to the beat of drums and becoming tranced by my spirits.
      For a while I began searching for a reason I had been acting that way because it is not my typical behavior. My friend who also practices the religon and who has held possessions before gave me the advice that it was Pomba Gira working through me.
      If she is I want to work with her to help me with my affairs of my love life. But on the other hand I was told I am a child of Ochun so I am wondering who should I go to for help
      • Unsu...
        If you have a madrina, and were on the steps to initiation in orisa, you should go discuss this with her. If not, go seek out a madrina of umbanda for advice. It is not wise to work with spirits if you are not initiated, and protected, and properly taught to worship. Pomba Gira is associated sometimes with Eshu, so great care should be exercised in exploring this area. And that care should be under the careful eye of godparents. Just because Pomba Gira is wild passionate, does not mean s/he should be approached any less carefully than any other
        spirit. But a lukumi house will most likely not be dealing with Pomba Gira. My 2 cents, discard at will.
  • i have herd like the other post said Pomba Gira is a Little wild this what i herd
    from many others too I am still learning so i am not Much help
    • Alafia,
      Pomba Gira, gypsy, world spinner....A little wild is an understatement. Pomba Gira, in most of her numerous incarnations, for lack of a better term is a down and dirty streetwalker. Many images of her are depicted bare breasted and sporting a necklace of bloody skulls, similiar to some of the legends about Kali. I agree with the earlier post that you should attempt to seek more professional council from your elders...I've seen many things go wrong when inexperienced practitioners try to "handle" her. I even had one of my students fall to the ground and start barking just because they were standing next to someone who tried to invoke her improperly. Now don't think I'm trying to scare you, i just have to say these things. Thems the rules :)
      Traditionally she is a Brazilian based goddess, and you will find most of her worshippers in the city of Rio. There is a good book on her if you can find it... called simply Pomba Gira :Enchantments to invoke the formidable powers of the female messenger of the gods by Teixeira. It is a bit pricey maybe someone can find it for you in a library. As for your Oshun reference, she could be responsible for some of the emotions you are feeling, but without divination or again guidance from your spiritual godparents, it's anyone's guess.
      • I believe Pomba Giras to be female egun working in the line of Elegbara. Everybody has one (or more) and they serve an important function in receiving energies that you must discharge and also in your protection. This is not to say you should fool around in evoking them without supervision in a secure ritual setting. You do not need to behave like her!
  • Hi Pompa Gira wife of legba is very sexual and she just may want you to ask her for something in the matters of love. Think about it when you started feel her presence? where you having men troubles or were you or are you looking fo a partner? if not she just may want to be acknowledged by you in that case dress sexy black/ and red and turn the music on and dance and light a red candle with red roses and she ll be happy and leave you alone. U sually when you feel a presence they want something so just calmly ask them want they want and listen carefully and patiently usually is just an acknowledgement and a candle.
  • I Have began parking to pomba gira to ask her guidance and help in matters of the heart but I had no spiritual guidance when it came to working w her. I live in the u.s in California but have no idea how to find a person who can guide me in this. I also work with holly death and haven't had guidance either. I have become more sex hungry since I've worked w pomba Gira...
    • I think there is a bit of misinformation, or misunderstanding in the least, about Pomba Gira. She's not all about sex, and if your libido is in overdrive I'm not so sure you should blame that on Pomba Gira. Eros, are you near the bay? If so, there are folks with real experience with Umbanda that I may be able to connect you to. Inbox me.
  • Axé Maria,
    I agree with those in this community that suggested you seek help of your religious guide or elderly. I don’t have any other suggestion but hope you don’t mind some general comments about Pomba-Gira.
    Pomba-Gira is very popular in Brazil and she has a large number of people asking for her help in questions of love and sexuality. She is a female exu, many times understood as the female quality of Eshu or Eshu’s wife. The name comes from the Candomblé de Angola: in Bantu language, Eshu is often called Bongbogirá. The word Bongbogirá was corrupted into Pomba-Gira or Pombagira or Pombajira. Since in Portuguese language the termination in letter “a” usually means female gender, the name became applicable to female exus.
    Pomba-Gira is mainly an Umbanda entity. Umbanda is a Brazilian religion, combining Afro-Brazilian religions, Kardecism and Catholicism. The entities in Umbanda are divided in Right side (good entities) and Left side (evil or pragmatic entities). The exus (not to be confounded with Eshu, Legba) and pombagiras are in the left side.
    Pombagiras are always very sensual. They frequently show themselves laughing loud, saying curse words, dressed in explicit way, displaying rude behavior but may also come in a very refined, sophisticated quality. The common denominator is high level of sensuality. There are many pombagiras, being (arguably) Maria Padilha the best-known pombagira. Reginaldo Prandi listed the following pombagiras:
    Pombagira Rainha
    Maria Padilha
    Pombagira Sete Saias
    Maria Molambo
    Pombagira da Calunga
    Pombagira Cigana
    Pombagira do Cruzeiro
    Pombagira Cigana dos Sete Cruzeiros
    Pombagira das Almas
    Pombagira Maria Quitéria
    Pombagira Dama da Noite
    Pombagira Menina
    Pombagira Mirongueira
    Pombagira Menina da Praia.
    Each one of them has peculiarities, but in general they like red and black silk, fancy underwear, perfumes, jewelry, cigarettes, red roses and champagne.
    This note turned to be too long! If you have any interest I can send you some more info…
  • Does anyone know the height or the approximate height of the pomba giras? Are they of short stature like around 5 feet or 4 feet 11"? In the pictures she is portrayed as a very beautiful and intriguing sensual lady. I have been doing a novena to get an ex lover back, and might have seen a sensual lady with long black wavy hair out of the corner of my eye. She also seemed very short and petite.
    • You should seek an umbandista for an orientation about PG, before assuming that entities you see are her. You should google templo guaracy to see if there are any Umbanda houses in your area. If there aren't, you may be able to contact someone at one of the templos to see if they can connect you with someone. Good luck.
