Our spirit guides are chosen by us before we are incarnate into our earthly lives.In the spiritual realm, we choose our family, we choose our lives. In preparation for our life’s journey, our life’s plan is made by us. We know the purpose of our journey, but as I have explained before, it is when we arrive after being passed through the womb, that all is forgotten. When we come here, we do not come alone, our spirit guides are with us from the very moment we arrive. Their position here with us is to guide and protect us, assist us along life’s way, through their influence upon our life’s decisions. As we grow from birth, most of us will be able to realize, eventually that we are not alone. They see our thoughts, knows all our deeds and all our plans, but they cannot interfere with our free will. They can only by communicating with us, I will explain how they do that later. They influence us in a subtle way,into making the right decisions befitting our life’s plan. They are here to help us fulfill the spiritual contract we made before are incarnated to this earth plane.

Yes, we all made a contract before we received a body to come here. This is explained thoroughly in the Cosmology of Ifa/Orisha, the traditional practice of the Yoruba People of South Western Nigeria, and explains the Orisha  Orunmila as the witness of fate. According to the Yoruba’s, Orunmila is witness to the contracts of all of mankind. He knows all our do’s and dont’s, all our taboos (things we ought not to do ), what will hinder us on our journey and what will push us forward for progress. Orunmila knows all we will experience either good or bad while we are here, and the he knows the solution to all our problems. This is why in Nigeria, everyone, Muslims, Christians, Heads of State all consult Orunmila, through consultation of a competent Babalawo (high priest of Orunmila), when making important decisions. The Babalawo Invokes Orunmila through his Ifa oracle which is called an Opele, this is cast upon a tray called an Opon Ifa Tray or he may use Ikins (consecrated small black seeds, representing Ifa, which are manipulated with his hands, while he prays) an Odu comes down, which is marked in a binary code upon the tray which only the competent Babalawo, who has studied all his life can interpret. This is similar to accessing our Akashic record, which is our spiritual library, but more intense and detailed. You have never had a divination like this! In the future I will make a post explaining this in detail.

Your spirit guides are different from your ancestors. These are non-physical beings who resides within the dimensions of time and space. They have lived many lives here, incarnated many times and have gone on to work and assist other beings within the realms and also assist us, human beings on this earth plane. These guides, who are here with us are more than one, they are many, but each individual has three main guides who stays with them throughout their lives. Theses guides are all at a different level of consciousness within the spiritual realm. They have been released from the earthly wheel of life having accomplished all they had to do, learn, or teach here in our world during their many incarnations. However there are those, despite being released from the wheel of existence who choose to come back to assist us here for whatever reasons, The Jesus story can be viewed as one. While others are conscious beings residing on the sixth dimension where they are light beings and are referred to as ascended masters, they may be referred to by other names in other cultures, Jesus, Buddah, and many others are ascended masters. Please note that Orishas are not considered ascended masters, the word Orisha is the same as what we call or refer to as angels.

At the birthing table while the mother is giving birth, the spirit guide waits for the arrival of the child. While the mother is pregnant, she is accompanied by not only her  personal guides, but two guides assigned to the child walks with her. When the child arrives, and decides to stay here in the world, another guide which belongs to the over soul descends to walk behind the child for the rest of his or her life, protecting the child’s life’s force, located at an entry point behind the physical body. Behind?, Yes I said behind. I have no idea if what I am explaining here, you will be able to find in a book or anywhere but I can only tell you what I know for sure,…. read on.

Our guides are with us all the time, three main ones. One walks on our right side, while the other is assigned to walk on the left, and the other walks behind. Each guide has a family associated with it, which is also apart of your spiritual protection. If your personal guide has to go within the realm to represent you for some reason while you are here, then someone from his/her family assumes his position, temporarily until he comes back. What would be a reason why they would have to go to the realm and represent you? The reasons may be many. For instance someone has accused you wrongfully (you may or may not know that you have been accused), and this accusation may cause your life or hinder you in some major way. You are innocent of these accusations, and your guide sees and knows that you may not be able to get out of this situation. Remember everything that happens to you here, good or bad, is apart of your life’s plan, unknown to you however.

Yet you are on the correct path of accomplishing your earth’s purpose and upon seeing this he makes a decision to bring your case to the spiritual elders within the realms and pleads on your behalf so that this devastation would not befall you. When he leaves, he assigns a member of his family to take his place in protecting you as he travels. He can intervene on your behalf on any issue concerning you, because not only is he protecting and guiding you while you are here, he is also seeking spiritual elevation, should he successfully assist you in accomplishing what you came here for. When you die/make your transition, it is your guide you will first see. Yes your family may be there, but it is your guides duty to settle you within the realm of spirit after you have gone to the hall of judgement, which everyone must pass through. He will be the one to represent you in judgement  hall, when you are brought before the elders to review your life. Your spirit guide on the right will be the one first interviewed and questioned, the guide on the left will be the second.  Remember your guides will also be rewarded with spiritual elevation, going on to higher realms to perform more functions there. This however depends on the outcome of your life’s review, in other words, if while guiding you their influence over your life’s action helped you to achieve what you went to achieve,. If so and all is found to be well, then they have done their job successfully and therefore can progress within the realm of spirit, while you advance to another stage within the realm. While travelling with us they can only influence our decisions, the final choice is up to us.  The guide who stood behind you all your life, is never questioned at all. As a matter of fact that guide ascends immediately to where your over soul resides to join it there.

Your guides speak to you many different ways. This is what I mentioned above by spiritual interventions. They communicate to us through intuition, signs, gut feelings. If there  is an accident waiting for you down the street, or across town, or the minute you pull out of your drive way, your guide will either, make you miss-place your car keys, forget your bus pass, or make you miss your flight. A feeling to turn back home and check the stove or oven, regardless if when you return all is well, is them getting you used to checking these things before leaving the house, because some where in the future it may become a real problem. Jamaican people say “Prevention better than Cure”. A gut feeling, such as I had in Black woman and Child  urges you to get up in the middle of the night and check on your children or call the ones living outside the home, or show up at your husbands job unannounced. It is they who are responsible for you to find your and embrace your spirituality. It is them who gives access to other beings who may want to talk to you in dreams and visions. They may even stand aside and watch you fail in some of your doings or undertakings, because there are lessons from those failures that you needed to learn. They may also influence your decisions which will perhaps imprison you because that was apart of your life’s plan, something you needed to do to pay a karmic debt owed to the universe or a crime committed by you could change the laws and make the world safer, you may not know it, but you have accomplished your life’s plan.

Often when I do spiritual readings for people, their guides often speaks to me. They may outline to me what is going on with my client or bring forth the clients ancestors or other spirits to talk to me. They are happy when you find and embrace the spiritual side of yourself, it makes their job here a lot easier. Meditation is key to connecting to them. Keep your environment as neat and clean as possible. Good spirits cannot dwell in an unclean space, anywhere cluttered and dirty will only invoke spirits alike and also create confusion. Know that your guides are always with you, they are prudent and benevolent spirits. They are our messengers, they love and care for us. Place a glass of water at your night table to refresh them at nights before you sleep. Speak to them when you are by yourself, tell them your secrets, remember a secret is no longer that, if shared with someone, but these non-physical beings are the best to talk to. Listen to them when they speak, know the signs of when they are speaking to you. Try to know yourself  better by being quiet, finding quiet time when you can. Please  remind me to make a post about the mysterious guide who walks behind, he is fascinating. If only I had an assistant to type for me, I could dictate while sipping my Iced coffee, but….

Ọ̀rọ̀ tó máa di akàn, bí ẹja ni í kọ́kọ́ ńrí. / 
What will turn out well, often do start out as unfavorable….. Yoruba Proverb!

[Things may get worse before they get better; don’t give up.] 

One who causes others misfortune also teaches them wisdom. ~ African proverb

Another very interesting eye opener. I would often go through life on automatic this is encouraging me to be much more awake and reflective in the knowledge that every bad and or good is for a purpose. Also I can link this to the post about recognising the importance of omens.

You can hire me to type for you mi Teacha..lol… I love talking to my spirit guides…that is the only way I get expert advice…
My Devon told me a story yesterday about a tanker turning over and flattening a car just minutes away from my house…he said miraculously no one was hurt…the driver of the tanker excaped with just minor scratches, but the most incredible account was thean who drove the car..He said the man said every morning his wife would accompany him to the fishing village (This is where the accident happened) and she would always wait on him in the car until he finished his business, but for some strange reason he told her to stay home and well..I think I made the point…
Always listen to that voice in your head…

Hi guys, I love how the convo a progress. I want to give a testimony. The little one has a sch trip that she will be required to write an essay about after the trip. Last week Monday night me an har cut a breed a prayer and beg God send di money. Mi a cum from work and it juss drop inna mi spirit (wey Obara topic today bout?) Or rada, mi guides tell mi fi pray. Right pan di staff bus mi pray and sey God/my guides mi nuh si di funds fi di trip but mi pickney going. As mi step through di door shi sey ‘mom miss says you must call her about the trip’. Before mi call mi, mi juss buss a nedda prayer an sey God, my guides talk to dat teacher suh by time mi call har, she will say yes my daughter can go on the trip. So I called the teacher and she asked if I wanted my daughter to go on the trip and I said sure but right now I don’t have the funds, but I’d be able to pay it month end. The teacher said ok just sign and return the consent form. She went on to say mom, I know if had it, your money would have been in already. She said the Supervisor came to her and said the would be willing to take another child but that child must be a good student and whose parent is having financial difficulties. Suh mi daughter will be going on the trip. Then it sunk into me that she said ‘a parent who is having financial difficulty’. I immediately burst out an everlasting bwalling. I’m thinking, when did I get to the level of being ‘a parent who is having financial difficulties. Then the teacher called me back to remind me to take in the consent form. She could tell I was crying. So I said sure and quickly hung up. Teacher call mi back and the teacher just started talking. Her words were so soothing. I felt the love and hope coming through the phone. I said ‘thank you Jesus that I’m a parent who is having financial difficulty’ as if I had paid the money, this lady wouldn’t have had the chance to minister such words of comfort, healing and hope. Once again what the evil one wanted to be shame for me turned to joy. Thank you for reading. Just had to share and who better to share with than my wonderful family.

My husband watches anime, Japanese cartoon, sometimes and the delve a lot into spiritual guides and realms. We were just talking about this and he was sharing that with me, how open their culture is to this thought and also discusses the demons and good spirits fromdifferent realms … Thank God we have Obara, our earthly guide, to guide us too…

Ok… This has been my favorite blog so far because it is about the reason I am now trying to develop my spirituality. To communicate with my ancestor, astral mates, spiritual guides, Orishas and have a better understanding of God. Obara I am so grateful for you. You have made such a complicated topic so simple. It takes others a lifetime or two to do what you have done in one blog. Thank you so much.

I remember one Mother’s Day I asked him what would he be giving me, he said ‘yu wudda really want something more dan that lovely daughter’. He and his other children (mine is the outside one, born years after he decided he didnt want any more children). I remember once she got her report and I took her and the report to him at his office and was telling him about her grades and he said ‘you dont have to tell me that she did well in school. I know she does well. If she didnt do well, then you wou have to talk to me. He then hugged her the one and only time I can remember and he embraced her for a very long time. Last August, I remember him saying “T you have done well with the children (I have a child that is not his) even with your limited resources.

My father was an ” outside ” child, born to a married man. He lived in the same country area as his half siblings. Funny thing he was the splitting image of his dad, and was born in the same week as one of his half sister, aunt babs. They look alike and you would think same mom and dad. His father never claimed him as his own and on his death bed begged for my dad to visit. So your baby father will regret his actions later when your child is successful.

The thing that he would be quiet respectful to me and somehow because I was working and could afford to take care of her, it wasnt a big deal. He would give me money from time to time, but he didnt want us to agree to $1 a month/week etc. Now Obara, he would give money (when him ready) but believe me it was nothing. When I was to deliver the child, he said he would give me the money, just as I was to have baby, his son’s finger was broken (or at least thats what he said), he took $150,000 to have the son looked at a private hospital. My daughter was going to one of the topic prep schools in Jamaica, tuition was $72,000 per term and the he gave $7,000 that term. Remember, shoes, books, uniforms, bag, ribbon, under nor socks nuh inna di $72,000. A mi fi tell bout it Obara, mi meet it and when ppl dun dem a grudge mi and nuh know sey a me one tek care a mi pickney dem.

So true Mth, di Jews, Asians and whites pass down him traditions. However dis new generation for them running from it, most young Jews now cannot speak Hebrew. While we now a try run back to wi roots. It is a cycle. We in the African diaspora had to hide our traditions so much that we even had to hide it from our children in fear that by accident the kids would reveal it… For openly practising our tradition meant punishment or death.

Some of them were very clever. My sons do capoeira which is a martial arts started by African slaves in Brazil . Most people did not know that martial arts started in Africa not Asia. Anyway, I digress. The slaves from Angola use music and dance fi teach di other slaves the karate moves and build weapon dat can double as instrument. It is beautiful to watch and also full of gymnastics.

Protect me God. Let archangel Michael be by right, archangel Gabriel on my left, archangel Raphael guide me from behind, and archangel Uriel light the way in front of me while God continues to shield my head with the sekinah.

You say this when you are afraid. Mi teach my 4 year old this prayer, here him to me, ” den mommy what happen to underneath? Dem can’ t attack there since it left unprotected? ” mi nearly dead. Mi tell you about kids. Lol

Afternoon all readers, bloggers and guides. So happy that you made this blog, I was talking with someone just last night about this very topic. My whole goal in strengthening my meditation skills is to do just this, get better communication with my spirit guides. Some people have even found out the names of their guides.

Many people in ICUs who are in comas and come back will tell you stories of communicating with their guides. I often wonder if the ones who made it back were the ones that were represented by their guides and got a favorable outcome from the elders.

Obara, I was also told the there are outer band guides who are not always with you but come in and out of your life at different points. I know for sure that another guide comes to be with you before you die.

Our God is a wonderful God to have us surrounded by help and love as we go thru this life.

Good Morning Obara and all viewers of this post.

9/11 readily comes to mind when I read this article. People who were normally early for work were late that day. I remember reading about this man who had worn a new shoes and had to stop by the pharmacy and he was late for work and missed the tradegy.

I think my guides led me to this blog and they are happy that I have found you have embraced your teaching.
