BE HAPPY IN YOUR LIFE-BE POSITIVE

Years ago I considered myself  a worrier. I worried about everything. I would go to bed at nights with worry on my mind and wake up refreshed, stretching and yawning at the new day, as the sun beamed through my window, but as I stretched and yawned I also searched my mind to remember what was it I was worried about before I went to sleep.

download (54)
Good day all nice and decent people, to all ESP massive and crew just gwan hold tight. Today’s post is in regards to my good friend Awo Ifamuwagun, aka ShawnyRob as he is known here when he blogs with us sometimes, reading of the year 2015. In the reading of the year he gives us the Odu which was cast and also the supporting Odus. I will give you a brief snap shot of all of this through my own interpretation and explanation of what an Odu is, for all who are new to this and may have no idea what is being delivered here. In the picture above you will see the oracle which was used, it is called  ikins, of which 16 constitutes as one hand of Ifa, although most Babalawos will give 16 plus four, and the board upon which it sits is called an Opon Ifa Tray. I will do a post where I will explain all which is carved on the tray, and more for all who are interested

I thought of how to begin this post this morning, I have so many stories on these “mythical beings”, I have since learned that many things that we humans deem as mythical actually do exists, but are not of our world, or our minds are not able to comprehend these which we are not use to or cannot understand.

OBEAH IN JAMAICA-CHIQUITA – A TRUE STORY

download (49)

When a Jamaican or anyone hears the word Obeah, something bad, wicked, evil, Satanic comes to mind. The mere word elicits deep fear into the hearts of some, while others foolishly dismiss Obeah and its powers as a fallacy, foolishness, nutten nuh guh suh! There are many claims as to the origin of the word Obeah, but I shall not spend time here, only that the word is synonymous with Jamaica and Jamaicans, it is a word we use to identify with things which are not of the natural world, and this is me putting it mildly. Read here.

HOW TO OVERCOME AN ENEMY

download (48)

 

The world is full of backstabbers, betrayers, thieves, and liars, hate and jealousy, wicked people, vile and ruthless . They walk among us, they are related to us, we marry them, or have them as boyfriends or girlfriends, they are our leaders, employers, boss, best friends, co-workers, employees and then some. Enemies are everywhere, and the most dangerous ones are the secret ones. When a dog barks you know his intention, but the cat, simply watches without sound!

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.

I remember as a child living in Kingston Jamaica, my mother at times would send me to a shop on Waltham Park Road which the locals called Bun Dung. A fire had happened there sometime ago, but even after it was renovated and re-opened the name stuck, that is Jamaica. I could either take one of two roads to reach Bun Dung shop on Waltham Park Road, it was either Delamere Avenue or Languard Avenue, it depended on my mood.

TRUST – A NECESSARY BUT HARD THING TO DO

 

images (37)

It is hard to trust in this life. Almost everyone you meet while travelling along life’s way has an agenda, I said almost. Trust is something very precious and valuable to give but unfortunately there are sinister people who take advantage of trust given to them. When I met The Big Bad Wolf, I trusted him, he gained it by being my friend, by listening to me, by being there for me, all the while gently waiting to seduce me, naive and trusting as I was, I knew it not, I trusted him.
