A NIGHT OF MEDIUMSHIPS

Good morning one and all. I hope everyone had a great weekend as I have due to the first session of my online classes. Sunday I went out into nature along with my daughter and two of my Babalawo brothers to do Ebo (Eh-bo) which is sacrifice. When we came back, they had come to my home for a meeting, we have our own egbe (meaning society or group) where we meet and discuss things spiritual and also Isese (E-shay-shay – which is Yoruba for Tradition and this is of Ifa/Orisha) as we are all (including my children), traditional practitioners of Isese, and this means that we practice the way of our ancestors and the way it is supposed to be practiced as done by the Yoruba people of South Western Nigeria. Not a variation of or similar to, or a bastardized version, but the authentic way of practice as it is done today in Africa.

THE SPIRITUALITY OF JAMAICA

Martha-Brae-River-Jamaica

In Jamaica’s history there are many stories about different people. Some who are hailed as “heroes” who have contributed something great spiritually to our history and culture. Among these people is the famed Nanny of the Maroons, Three Fingered Jack, and others. As a child, I felt the spirituality of my country. Of course I had no idea what I felt but also I had no idea that I was a citizen on a very small island in the Caribbean with less than 3 million people. Jamaica seemed large to me, not large in population or geographically, but it seemed to radiate something bigger, something of which possibly could be described as spirit.

BLOGGER KB SHARES HER EXPERIENCE AND A LESSON LEARNED

download (70)

Good day to all my bloggers, peepers, newcomers, and sometimers. Today’s post is from blogger KB who wishes to share a recent spiritual experience which could have turned sour but through the act of divination and sacrifice, she came through. KB asked me if it was possible for her to share her experience with others so that perhaps you all may learn from her own mistakes, which she corrected and also celebrates in her triumph. Often times I am saddened when I see a situation about to happen and I warn a person about it but they do not take heed. I am naturally compassionate and so I realize that most people take for granted spiritual messages given to them, possibly thinking in the back of their mind that this is nonsense. Please read KB’s story and I urge you all to learn from it.

ARCHETYPES OF ORISHA OGUN – GOD OF IRON – GOD OF WAR

shrine-of-ancient-palace_Idi-Ajani

Understanding these Orishas and their characteristic traits portrayed in living beings who are from their realms is to pay keen attention to each other or people we meet, through their behavior and action, we can if we have certain understanding, see the personality of the Orishas within them. Ogun, God of Iron and of War is an Orisha who is easily mis-understood, and this maybe because he is referred to as God of War.

HUMILITY-BY OGUNTUNDE

Good morning everyone, this post was written by a dear friend of mine who is an Initiate and practitioner of the Ifa/Orisha Traditional Order of the Yoruba People of South Western Nigeria. I have so far stayed clear of formally introducing this very important traditional practice to my blog of which I too am an Initiate,( although I have sprinkled it here and there in some of my posts), for one reason. I wanted to be the source of truth whenever I wrote of Ifa (ee-fah). I have realized that throughout cyber world there aren’t many truths regarding this subject. This is a sacred order, and should be regarded as such. There are no books which stands as an holy text in representing Ifa, It is too vast and therefore cannot be contained within a single book or text. So it is taught orally, handed down by Priests called Babalawos (father of mysteries), who have spent almost half their lives studying Ifa under the tutelage of  their master, teacher, often times titled Oluwo, not all Babalawos bares this title.

Embracing Spirituality

Orishas are deities that reflect the manifestations of Olodumare (God). They are emissaries of God, forces of nature. Each individual manifest an attribute of these forces within their consciousness, therefore displaying knowingly or unknowingly through their character, or even how they look which Orisha is their Guardian. In other words we are all children of Orishas. Ethnicity plays no importance here at all!. We in the west are used to hearing about Angels and we have no problem with that, in fact it fills us with joy, warmth and happiness to call upon Gods angels to come and assist us in whatever. It is the same with Orisha only more personal, and that the language used is different in connection with the deity upon our Ori which is our head, our inner consciousness. It is through our head (ori) that we manifest the Orishas, and we can communicate with them through divination, offerings and prayers. Orishas were sent to earth by Olodumare (God) to assist man…

Orishas were sent to earth by Olodumare (God) to assist man and to align things so that we can put them in the right perspective (order), this is the way I have percieved it from my point of view. They were here from the time of creation, and may be called by many names depending on time and place, they are intermediaries of God, much like Jesus is to the christians and Mohammed is to muslims.
