La Omnipresencia de Dios ("The Omnipresence of God") is a 19th century Mexican image long associated with the Intranquil Spirit

The Intranquil Spirit is a spiritual being, or class of spirits who comes to hoodoo via the folk traditions of Latin America. This spirit is petitioned by scorned and jilted lovers for the return of their partner.

The petition to the Intranquil Spirit exists within a class of spells and intercessory prayers that have a long history in various folk magical traditions. We find similar spells that petition spirits to force the return of a lover spanning all the way back to ancient Egypt, the Greek Magical Papyri and other cultural magical practices. The prevalence of this type of magical work demonstrates the need of people to deal with a wayward lover or spouse.

Santisima Muerte is a similar spirit who is petitioned by those who work with folk saints for similar ends as that of the Intranquil Spirit.

The Intranquil Spirit is petitioned by spiritual workers to harass and torment a victim in order to coerce them to return to the jilted lover. This spirit is petitioned through prayers and candles and then it is sent to torment the target, or victim with restlessness and an unnatural need to see, speak, hear, and be around the petitioner.

There are no actual pictures of the Intranquil Spirit. Instead candles and oils prepared for petitioning it draw their imagery from an 19th century Mexican holy print called "La Omnipresencia de Dios," or "The Omnipresence of God."

Alhough it may seem like a love spell, the prayer to the Intranquil Spirit is actually in part a curse in that it is coercive, forceful, and tormenting. The result may be an angry and restless partner who is humbled into returning against his or her will -- not the happy or healthy resumption of the relationship that was hoped for.

Hoodoo psychic readers, spirit workers and root doctors who petition the spirits on behalf of clients may work with the Intranquil Spirit to force the return of a lover, to torment a selfish former lover and to dominate and control a wayward spouse.
