The Yoruba people Of South Western Nigeria have a tradition where they pray for you when they meet you. Either for the first time meeting you, or if they have known you for ever. When they pray the prayers are affirmations. You will have long life, You will have a good husband or wife, you will be rich etc. I have always found it fascinating the way in which they pray, they seem to stamp these words not only into your mind, but regardless of the tone used, which is usually softly spoken, it holds power, and with the ones who practice the tradition of Ifa/Orisha the prayer is then stamped with the power word ASE!…(May it be so), Ah-shay!. We should all have daily affirmations, mantras, which we recite every day. There is something which I learned from my mother which I will share with you.

Upon rising in the mornings, before you wash your face or brush your teeth and most importantly before you speak to anyone, Pray. Your prayer has the most effect this way. Also, wake early, by sunrise, or a little before, make the effort, make the effort. Find your quiet space and pray. Use words as swords, utter then solidly and firmly. You may pray whatever you wish but I will give you in this post what you ought to consider in you prayer, as a matter of fact I urge you to make it apart of you daily affirmations. You will not plead for it, you will Affirm it.

Begin with this: 

I honor my ancestors (call their names)

I honor my parents (even if they were no good honor them, leave their judgments to God)

I honor the Universe and all within

I honor the sun set

I honor the Sunrise

I honor the earth in which I live

I honor…(here an call the names of whom you choose, a mentor, a teacher, a guru, an Elder, living or dead)

I honor the …(the name of the city, town in which you were born and the race to which your forefathers are from)

I honor (here my past life, which has brought me to where I am today)

I am loved by God, my ancestors, my guides and all who lives in the world with me and all who lives within the universe

I am blessed

I am prosperous

I am rich in everything which connects me to the Universe

I have everything I need to survive within the realm where I live

I want for nothing

I am happy

I am comforted

I am wise to the wiles of my fellow human beings, therefore I can never be trapped in deception

I welcome love 

I welcome peace

I welcome sanity, I am sane

I fear nothing

Money comes to me without effort and it brings joy not sorrow

I am kind, I give

I share 

I share (sharing is important, as givers never lack)

I receive and I am grateful

I am patient

I am tolerant

I will have long life (add who you want here)

I will never be convicted of any misdeeds, as I will always strive to be the best that I can be

I will never bury any of my children, or visit them in the hospital or behind prison walls

I will always have compassion for my fellow human beings

I will always survive and overcome the negatives of life and so will  my children and spouse (add whoever you wish)

I am healthy, and will remain so for all my life and so  will my children ( add who you want here)

I am loved

 

You can always add or take away from this, but I have given you the guide, use it well! Affirm this every day, if you see a house and you want it, add it to your daily affirmations as well as anything else. If you see someone else husband or wife and you want him or her….do not affirm that, know that in doing so, repercussions will follow. Print this and place it on your altar if you have one and you should.

Adìyẹ ńjẹ yangan, ó ńmu omi ó ńgb’ókùúta mì, ó tún ńsunkún àìléyín. Ṣé òbúkọ tó léyín ńjẹ irin ni?
The hen eats corns, drinks water and swallows stones, yet laments not having teeth; does the goat chew chunks of iron with its teeth?

[Contentment is it; Appreciate what you have and where you are.]…Yoruba Proverb!

All religions are valid as long it teaches peace and love…Obara Meji
