La Santa Muerte is very accepting. She welcomes into Her Heart everyone who turns to Her, especially people rejected by society or in danger. La Nina Blanca treats everyone individually and uniquely.
Devotees of the Most Holy Death are all over the world, Our Lady will eventually come to everyone to lead us to the afterlife. However, La Santa Muerte is also Life itself, representing the dualism of existence. She not only leads us out of this world, but also brings us to it and accompanies us on our journey through life.
She shows us the right way, protects us from dangers and teaches us how to live and how to use the life we have been given. She is full of motherly feelings for people and takes true care of Her devotees. Devotees of the Holy Death constantly feel Her presence, the words "La Santa est presente" are repeated in many massess around the world, and the presence of Holy Lady is felt to such an extent that many devotees call Her with warm words: "My Love", "Mother", "Rose", "Godmother", "Skinny Girl". Characteristic for the Holy Death is that you don't need to be a devotee of La Santa Muerte to gain help from Her. La Rosa Blanca shows Her grace to everyone who turns to Her. Anyone who turns to La Santa Muerte in a moment of suffering, fear or other need will confirm that the help given to them by the Holy Lady was quick and effective. Many people describe the graces given to them by the Holy Death as "instant miracles".
The number of relations and testimonies about miracles sent by the Holy Death is amazing and growing bigger every each day. We become Her messengers when we proclaim Her glory and the miracles She sent. Regardless of religion or culture, La Santa Muerte helps everyone - after all, we will all meet Her, no matter what religion we believe. The cult of La Santa Muerte is highly personalistic because each of us has our own individual relationship with the Holy Death, She comes to each of us individually, just as She takes each of us individually with Her when She finally comes for us. However, the Holy Death comes to certain people also during their lifetime to guide and protect them during their mortal existence.
She shows Her closeness to those whom She chose and to those who turn to Her for protection and help. La Santa Muerte loves all Her children like no other. She always accepts them unconditionally. In fact, to become a devotee of La Santa Muerte, all you need to do is, in the silence of your own heart, call Her directly with the words that suit you best, worship Her, recognize the Holy Death as Our Lady and entrust yourself to Her protection. Let your prayer be full of devotion - pray from the depth of your heart - and that will be enough. You do not need to be "initiated" into the cult of La Santa Muerte by anyone. It is the Holy Death itself that will guide you. You don't need any Madrina or Padrino from Mexico to teach you about La Santa Muerte. It is the Holy Death itself that will teach you. In the cult of Santisima, everyone is a priest before La Nina Blanca. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who want to earn on our Lady, the so- called "gate keepers" - claiming that they have a better bond with La Santa Muerte than you because of their origin, their experience or age - this is not true.
Contact with Holy Death is highly individualized, it depends on the depth of devotion, how big is your love to Her, personal relationship that an individual creates with La Santa Muerte and whether La Nina Blanca is willing to establish such a relation with you.
Each person establishes a highly personalized relation with Her, a very personal contact expressed in the way that is characteristic for a given devotee, how he talk with La Santa Muerte, what gifts he offers, how he built an altar for La Nina Blanca and what is on it, does it have tattoo with Her image. The relationship with the La Rosa Blanca is beautiful and intense - the Holy Death becomes our best friend, always present Companion in this life and the next. An almost telepathic bond and communication are created between Her and the devotee, La Santa Muerte reveals Herself in everyday events, sudden coincidences, unprecedented situations, miracles She sends, smiles of fate, She speaks to us in dreams, spiritual impulses and guides us safely through the difficult paths of our lives. The Bony Lady communicates Her will, inspirations, warnings and advices to us, Her devotees in all sorts of ways, but personally I don't believe, that a candle cracked from a high temperature, an unburned wick, "faces" or "skulls" appearing in the wax or an fortune-telling from a broken egg were messages from Her, as some say. In order to establish a relationship with La Santa Muerte, you don't need to do anything special other than directly calling Our Lady with love and devotion. In the silence of your own heart, pray to the Holy Death. Confess Her love - a simple and sincere "I love you" directed to La Santa Muerte is always the best. Ask the White Lady for protection and intercession. Give yourself under the care of the Bony Lady. All the other elements of the cult of the Holy Death are only a deepening and natural development of the worship of La Santa Muerte by the devotees. The real key to worshiping La Santa Muerte is the love for Her. If we love Her with all our heart, with all our strength, La Rosa Blanca will reciprocate our feelings a thousand times.
La Santa Muerte protects against misfortune, bad luck, enemy attacks and diseases. Holy Death brings back the joy of life, removes worries and anxieties. She is our Guidess.

We constantly feel Her comforting presence. An almost telepathic bond with Our Lady is formed. We hear Her voice, we feel Her love and Her attitude through the feelings and emotions that appear in us. La Santa Muerte comes into our lives in various forms, in dreams, in visions, in life circumstances. She invites us to Her and lets us get to know Her. When She appears to us, when She wants to tell us something, it depends on the color of Her robe. If, for example, La Santa Muerte appears as the Black Lady, She wants to protect us or warn us against danger, as the Red Lady (or feeling, emotion, vibration) She wants to tell us that She loves us, while wearing a golden robe heralds an inflow of money or an improvement in the material situation.
