BLOGGER’S POST: FACT OR FICTION? LET’S DISCUSS

image

Good day to one and all, the responses to the “contribute a post” page has been wonderful from its introduction, which was last Thursday. Thanks to Iman, the first blogger to do so on the very day the announcement was posted, hers was an interesting read.  There are times when I wonder “why bother blogging anymore”, and then responses like these comes and I am fueled again. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, and to the peepers and sometimers please come and join the conversations. I am supposed to post these bloggers posts on Wednesday’s, but it seems as if I may have to add an extra day, due to the amount that have come in so far (keep them coming). Blogger Kevin has given us food for thought, not just food for thought, excess food for thought, (de bickle nuff). Brain teasers, mind bogglers, things that will make you go hmm…  I love it, information is knowledge, fact or fiction, it’s for us to know and decide, however never discount things you may doubt, for truly,  truth is stranger than fiction. I have my own opinions, experiences, etc, and perhaps I will one day write on this subject, but for today, let us travel through time and space, to go where  none of you perhaps have never gone before. (But if you have, please share, there is no judgement here). Thank you Kevin! Oonuh read, learn, mind travel, wonder and enjoy. More

Someone commented on this post and so I was curious and went to read it. It is very good, I like it and I think you may like it also. So I have re-posted it. It is important to honour people, especially before they leave this world, why  do we bring flowers and say kind words after they have gone? Show them your appreciation now while they are here. If you like, please “big up” in your comments or in even a post, a teacher, mentor etc, someone who has made an impact in your life. Big up mi MADDA and all my spiritual mentors. My enemies, big up oonuh self, you all made me stronger. More

BLOGGERS POST: DWARF CREATURES – AN AFRICAN/CARIBBEAN CONNECTION

st-lucia-rainforest-walk-in-castries-139746

I know I am supposed to post ‘Bloggers Posts’ on Wednesdays, but I was so excited when blogger Iman sent this fascinating post in. This is actually an educative post because she’s bringing light to something we’ve never discussed here before. Within the post you will see what she has written and the name these entities are called in her country and also in Ghana. Yet still, I, Obara Meji, am aware of these beings and others that resides in bushes and forests and other parts of nature who are benevolent and also malevolent (we need both), who assist mankind in their evolution and also on their journey. St. Lucia, which the blogger speaks about, many people may not know but this small island is an extremely spiritual place. When it comes to spiritual baptists, the religion that is throughout the Caribbean and most talked about from Trinidad (also known as Sango Baptists, although there may be difference in the two somehow), this all began in St. Lucia, unbeknownst to many. I don’t want to overshadow her posts but I’ll explain somethings in the comments. Thank you Iman for contributing a post, you will go down in history for being the first blogger to do this on this day.

Read and enjoy!

THE BLOGGERS BLOG (CONTRIBUTE A POST)

meeting-roundtable-gold

Good day everyone, I pray all is well for one and all. I recently created a new page which you will see in the navigation called ‘Contribute a Post‘. This page will allow all and sundry or whomever wants to contribute a post to Embracing Spirituality. It can be of an experience, a lesson learned, knowledge shared, or anything on a spiritual topic that you may want to discuss. As you can see with this blog, I, Obara Meji, am opened and vulnerable by sharing truthfully my experiences in life which I have chosen to teach from.

THE APPEASEMENT OF WATER DEITIES (THE FLAT BRIDGE STORY)

Flat Bridge-M

Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, my mother always spoke almost in fright about Rio Cobre and the bridge that runs across it called Flat Bridge. Located in Bog Walk, St. Catherine, it is said that the bridge was built by slaves, and according to Wikipedia, “When the bridge was being constructed, the sixteen plantations in the Bog Walk area were obliged to send one enslaved African in every fifty to work on the River Road, sometimes called Sixteen Mile Walk. Gravel, marl, lime, sand and stone had to be dug. Slaves often lost their lives as they performed dangerous tasks in the Gorge. Contracts for timber and for masons to work on the bridge were authorized at vestry meetings.”  This bridge has claimed many lives, much to the mystery of the Jamaican people and there are also tales of spirit (duppy) sightings as many people have said that the spirits of the dead slaves usually gather at the bridge, and there are times when they seek the blood of passersby.

But the truth, as the saying goes, is stranger than fiction.

JAMAICAN WHITE RUM OR “SPIRIT” AND ITS USE

Wray-Nephew-white-rum

When I was a little girl growing up in Jamaica, there was a drunkard by the name of Mr. Fergie, a short little man with a crushed up face and head of white hair. He seemed old and his face surly. I, to this day, never remembered Mr. Fergie standing up straight. He was always drunk. His best friend was the good old Jamaican White Rum, J Wray and Nephew. There was also another drunk in my community who was a shoe maker, he was called Shoey. At nights when Shoey would stagger on his way home, the younger men in the community would laywait him and pour flour on his head as a joke, while Shoey slurred a string of bad words at them.

SPIRIT BEING, DUPPY ENCOUNTER, OR VISITOR?

aliens-vs-predator-chess

A few nights ago, while I was asleep, someone or something came and sat right within that space between my chest and my head on the bed. I instantly woke up. Not my body (I could not open my eyes or move) but my mind. I felt the warmth of the “person” (spirit, it was a spirit or a being, I will explain later), and within my minds eye, I saw the striped colours it wore. The colours are significant, but I will not reveal them here, too many enemies read my blog. More

AN INTRODUCTION TO AREMU

image122

Good day my people, I pray all is well with you. I live a very spiritual life, and what this means is my perception of life is seen and interpreted as to what the Universe is trying to convey. Often times I meet people or read of people or accidentally find people through whatever medium who are awake, enlightened, and not the ordinary everyday Joe or Joan, even if it is unbeknownst to them.

A BEAUTIFUL LIFE

ws_Forest_Trip_Sunny_Day_1366x768

When life seem dark and your path seems dreary, hold on to hope, your faith, your dream and your God, your belief. Always remember this too shall pass. Keep a positive mind, do not become confused and fearful when things begin to fall apart, always remember to pray. It matters not your belief, or even if you are unsure if there is an unseen being, a higher power, which resides above or below. Know that your very existence shows that there is greater than you somewhere, create that energy within your own mind, if you do not want to conform to what is known as religion, and hold steadfast to it, pray that all will be well, believe your prayer and know that it is done.
