RESPECTING YOUR ELDERS

a-man-greeting-a-yoruba-king-oba1

I am now realizing that how I write on the blog and all my experiences that I have recounted here for you all to learn from and perhaps for all the words of “wisdom” that I share with you all on my blog, many people would vision an old woman. I have written extensively about my life and about getting pregnant while I was still in high school, and to be honest with you, I do not regret being so honest and opening up to all of whom I do not know. It is never wise to judge a person, I always say this, because you do not know what lies ahead of you in your life, and I was shocked yesterday when having a conversation with a blogger, she said that there are many people who read or peep on the blog who may not like me, (we were discussing the unfortunate event which occurred on the blog a few nights ago when someone came on and disrespected me), “not like me?, I recoiled in my mind, although I said nothing.

I LOVE YORUBA CULTURE

images

Good day to you all. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I woke up this morning not feeling to write a post, as I am still exhausted from all the festivities of the initiation I just did along with my children. It had its intense moments and it also had its fun moments. Intense, because when the oloorishas are divining to the Egbes to ask about each step that is taken, you never know what will come out, what they will say, or what sacrifices will be asked for and why. Each step takes you closer to the memory of who you really are and from which realm out within time and space you came from. What were you when you lived there and your importance to your society there. The first night my oldest child came to Africa for the Egbe initiation, in the evening as my husband relaxed in our room sleeping, and the children and I watched chopped on the food network in the parlour, my daughters egbe husband went into the room to my husband and tapped him slightly on his leg and introduced himself while pointing out toward the parlour where we were and told him that HE was my childs husband. Can we say brazen? Not Amen, ei nuh, Brazen! He was to make an appearance some more times, but only to my husband, ah guess him ah think “big man ting”.

IBA MY PADRINO-I SHALL NEVER FORGET YOU

PADRINO

Good morning to you all. I am back but very exhausted. We finally completed our Egbe initiations, my daughters and I, and it was an experience, a beautiful one I must say. I am not ready as yet to give details about the initiations and information as to where we came from as yet, as in which realms we came from within time and space (we found out, although I already knew my own and also my children) and who our family are and more but I must tell you all that Africans, (Not just Nigerians alone, although dem deh pon top ah tings in my opinion) and their knowledge are something out of this world. I have been privy to many initiations and have taken part into many myself. But when I stand as an initiate and see and feel from that position, my hats goes off to them, from the drummers, to the butchers to the cooks and the little old ladies (dem strong yuh fenneh, one all life mi up and carry me on her back and she nuh younger dan 96!) who are there shouting Ase!!!!!…..lol…big up oonuh self oooooo!. I must say how extremely fortunate I am to have found this, my path in life, in this incarnation. God I thank you! More

CROSS CULTURES SPIRITUAL SIMILARITIES, VENERATION AND WORSHIP – WE ARE ALL THE SAME

images (65)

Cultures throughout the world, spiritually, are so interesting. We, at least most of us, love to learn of how people celebrate and worship within each culture, their Gods and Goddesses. In Jamaica we have Zion Revival which came out of Africa but has been infused with Christianity (as religion was forced upon Africans), nevertheless the drums and what the Zionist possesses within their mental consciousness comes out during worship through dance, songs and prayers. In Zion Revival, unbeknownst to most who are of the Order, they invoke either consciously or unconsciously their ancestors from a land far away – their ancestral homeland: Africa.

CLARIFICATION ON DIVINATION AND ALL THAT IT INVOLVES

tumblr_n0sctcDEtP1shgs1po1_500

Divination, readings, or consultations, through spirit or oracle has been done for centuries. Within every culture and society there is a spiritual system set in place. Seers although ridiculed and condemned by the Christian church  and other religions have always been an integral part of every society, though respected, but often unappreciated and even in the bible the prophet Samuel was a most important one. As I always teach here on this blog, it is important for every human being to consult a diviner at least every 21 days. This number 21 has a specific meaning which I will get into later. More

AN IFA SACRIFICE – LET ME TAKE YOU THROUGH THE RITES (with video sacrifice and audio explanation)

102_2386

The concept of Ifa/Orisha tradition of the Yoruba people of South Western Nigeria, is a complex one. Understanding it especially if all along life’s way, you had never heard of its practice, or have no idea of what it is, understanding it on the level it truly takes to appreciate its wisdom and cosmology will take time for some, often times due to religious indoctrination (all you have ever known is the bible and Christ, or the Koran and Mohammed), the language it takes to explain Ifa, meaning the Yoruba words of the deities and the meaning behind the coded language which is the binary code of life, and also the overall wisdom of Ifa, often recited in parables.

Recently a man came to our compound here in Lagos, he wanted divination which he received from my husband. I was seated there as well and so were the Awo’s (student of Ifa) of our compound.
