OMOU CLASSES RE-OPENED

CharmsClassroom

Hello all. OMOU classes will resume again on 24 September 2016. This first course will last for 4 weeks (4 Saturdays). This course topic will be on Obeah. Obeah as a “science” (the philosophy of it), Obeah coming through lineage (bloodline, those who were born for the practice), Obeah as apart of the natural order of spiritual consciousness and awakening. Obeah, malevolent and benevolent (good and bad) as structured in the minds of the participants, and lastly the recognition of Obeah when it is present. More

This woman is currently trying to heal from all the trauma she has been through, especially her loss. She gave me the permission to share her story with you, and this is what I am doing. I share it because, I want you all to be present in your lives, take stock of any unusual occurrences, pay dem mind, note them! I am not telling you to be superstitious, I Obara Meji am a notorious doubtful Thomas. I have to be sure before I claim anything as Obeah/juju, and yet I am a spiritualist/traditionalist, but being overly superstitious can affect your mental health, aldoe “mad people” ah de real spiritualist dem mi nah lie. Even when I realise obeah deh bout, I look to see the reason why, as somethings happens to us for OUR greatest benefit. Wha yuh sey? Yuh nuh undastan dat? Wha yuh sey, Obara drink mad puss piss?  Well just ease off lickle bit man and let me explain. More

Hello to all, I have to share this great news with you all, our blogger Yazzy had a baby girl just an oz shy of seven pounds yesterday and to this we say to God be the glory! This birth (one which Yazzy always wondered if it would ever happen as she had no thought to it, her mind always on work) deserves a post and also celebration because of what Yazzy means to us here on this blog. There was a time when we here on Embracingspirituality felt and acted like a family. Some have gone astray, (perhaps I have been too busy to keep writing everyday as I use to, but I will be on track again very soon, and the family will once again gather) some get bun out by de hands of God caws dem never good in de first place and some turn peepers and sometimers. De bun out one dem mi nuh miss, Yazzy however have been with me through out and for her loyalty, I love her dearly More

OUT OF A HUNDRED ONE WILL RETURN TO SAY THANK YOU

thank-you-gratitude

Good day Bloggers, Peepers, Sometimers and Newcomers. Just now I received an email from a peeper and the subject was “Thank you”. Upon reading the email, I became misty eyed, although I tried desperately to contain it, (mi just apply mi make up fi hit de road, didn’t want any mascara line down my face) but I could not. The other day I wrote a bare all post titled “Betrayal, A Very Heavy Load” but I never posted this. In the post, I told you guys everything I was going through. I was more vulnerable than I had ever been, (which is saying something because I am quite vulnerable on this blog, in my telling the tales of my life, using my experiences as a tool in teaching you all). This year has most especially been rough, and the enemies have the sharpest teeth I have ever felt in my life. They are even trying to take my life as I type, but God above men and all things. What makes it the most difficult, all who are doing this to me, have learnt from me, have benefited from me in many ways, and then there are the few who I have sheltered, clothed and fed. But let me teach you all something, and this is true metaphysics first told to me by my Godfather in tradition, and I now pass it to you:  Anyone, who you feed, clothe or shelter will never rise above youand let me also add my own: Once you are innocent, your defense is sure. When the enemy fights you, pray. Do not exact revenge, as long as you know you did not offend them, just pray, watch and wait. Let peace be still. More

ises

Aboru Aboye oooo!, I greet you all in the language of Ifa and of all traditional people, from the holy Odu Ogunda Meji. Today, August 20th 2016, all Orisha People in Nigeria and around the world will celebrate Isese day (e-shay-shay), which is Day of Tradition. Today in Nigeria all Babalawo’s, Iyanifa’s, Olorishas and everyone who practices the traditional way of life which is the practice, worship and veneration of Ifa/Orisha will celebrate this day for all its worth. The appropriate greeting for this day is Isese Lagba (E-shay-shay-Lag-ba) which means tradition is the best way, or tradition is on top of all religions. After someone greets you “Isese Lagba,” you will answer Isese Lagba Gbogbo Wa (E-shay-shay- Bug-bo Wa!) which means tradition will stay with us always.

BLOGGERS POST: AM I A CHILD OF ORISA OYA?

Water buffalo in water {Bubalus arnee} Kaziranga NP, Assam, Indi

Good day all nice and decent people. Today is the official bloggers contribution day, although I have been sharing it with Tuesday’s, due to the amount of contributions I have received thus far, we praise the lard! Brian aka Aboyade an initiate of the powerful Orisa Oya, has sent in a post. Here is hoping we can chat, so peepers and sometimers come out from hiding and participate. Orisa Oya is a very powerful Orisa as is all of them. Her color is maroon, and she is owner of the wind, breeze, therefore symboling change. Here she is very important because nothing remains constant everything is always changing, and change is important to human development and evolution. In Nigeria you are only initiated to an Orisa if you are from that family and this most especially so with Oya. If the Babalawo checks IFA and the sacred Odu IFA Ogunda/Osa aka Ogunda/Massa appears, it is more likely that you are a child of Oya. Written in the verses of this Odu are tales of this deity too complex to be written here, but I will write on this topic soon on my other blog, www.ifaorishaunveiled.com. More

PLEASE HELP LIGHT THE WAY FOR THIS YOUNG LADY

bright light

Hello everyone, on Thursday I received a text from one of my bloggers Lincoln. All who are regulars here on Embracing Spirituality, whether they comment or not, are familiar with our Lincoln. The text was that a young lady of which he was her coach, and father figure to, had died in a automobile accident. I felt Lincoln’s sadness and pain through his text, her sudden death had an impact on him. I wanted to let him understand that the crucial thing to do now was to go into some serious prayers for her and to light a white candle for her in assisting her to go on her journey. I wanted to tell him that it will take forty five days for her to get to Judgement hall, but first she had to make it across the river. I wanted to tell him, to pray that she gets to the river, that she go along with her group, instead of backing away and trying to get home (her earthly home) seeing that her passing was sudden and tragic. Most often when they go suddenly, and they realize that they are suddenly jolted out of their physical vehicles, they cannot accept it, and may want to find their way home, often staying behind or running away from the group who came to take them across the river (sometimes very rough) which everyone must pass. Some more advanced spirits will pass through fire, but this is rare, very rare. More
