Good day one and all. I pray that you all had a wonderful week end and that you enjoy and be safe for this week and for always. Here today I want to explore a topic that came to me this morning as I sat in meditation, “Be Who You Were Created to Be”. Growing up in Jamaica as a little girl my parents placed a great importance on who I would become in life, in terms of occupation and position in life. I suppose any caring parents would feel as mine did, there is no sweeter feeling than pride in a parent for their child, when it ah bubble up inna dem like ah tin ah pepsi!
We all as children aspired to be a Doctor, Lawyer, teacher what have you, perhaps not ALL children, but most, I once asked a friend sons what they wanted to become when they got older, I asked then in front of their beaming Jamaican mother, one boy answered he wanted to become a painter while the other jumped in and shouted that he wanted to become a pizza delivery man, this earned both boys to my dismay ah Baxiding ( ah horse stallion beating, dem bawl) from their very angry mother, through shame and embarrassment, the woman still talks of this to this very day. Why mi tek mi fass self an ask doe eeeh God?
You are pushed to study hard and “Aim High”. This was what I was told as a small girl who attended Maxfield Park Primary school in Kingston Jamaica. On our small island Jamaica Classicism is very present and also racism among us Jamaicans regarding each other. We were and still are a diverse race of people, and the Jamaican Motto is Out of Many One People, yet everyone was measured by their skin color or where you lived (uptown and downtown and also social status. Although we lived in what could be called the ghetto, (although my mother would cuss if she read this, according to her where we lived was no ghetto, the outskirts of the area was, but not where we were, this is Kingston 13 Jamaica, so you all figure that out) and because I was light skinned I was pampered by family and by people n my neighborhood who would praise me telling me that I would be a Doctor. No I was a bright student, what they wished for me had nothing to do with my scholastic achievements or abilities, it was al duel to my complexion. Dem neva business if mi cudda spell rat, mat, cat or bat, but from mi brown mi bright lika stadium bulb! They associated the fair skin with all which was good and with great potential success, the mind of our people O ma se ooo!
This was very disconcerting to me at the time, because I had an older sister who was dark skin, and when all people praised and pampered me, for my color/complexion, nobody paid any attention to her. For that, which was none of my doing, there were times when I wished they would stop, for her sake actually, to this day that sister carries a hatred for me and a jealousy to the point that we do not speak. I once had on shorts and this same sister was curling my hair with a very hot curling iron, she remarked about how clean my skin were, I answered thanks, all of a sudden the hot crimping iron “accidentally” fell from her hands and onto my leg, burning me badly, (wicked ole dranco, Yazzy stop bawl and read de rest!) but I digress. Let me get on with today’s post.
I never wanted to be a Doctor as everyone hyped me to set my mind to, It was not my dream, I could not stand the sight of blood, and I had so much compassion for the sick that I could not go near them, I was also a hypochondriac, as smady sneeze near mi uh mi fly gone ah doctor, suh doctor wuk ooda mad me .
I liked school, but I found out from a younger age that I liked to school myself, I had an interest in life and human beings. I especially had an interest in things that were not of this world. I loved to read. Reading was/is a passion to me, and by the time I came to America I still had no idea of what I wanted to do, career wise. What Occupation I wanted to pursue. I must say that in my freshman years in college , I still had no idea of what I wanted to become or do in my course of study, Liberal Arts what I settled for within my first year, while contemplating my course of study. I had my daughter while in high school, and had to go back to college after I had survived life outside of my family, in other words life on my own. I was determined, and I needed to show my parents who had thrown out a pregnant teenager, me, that although I had a child, while I was a child myself, I would still earn a degree. I did!
Yet life would take me where it wanted me to go, I had no choice in the matter, None! In hindsight I realize that my life spoke to me all along, from I was young and living in the birth country. I loved to read, books, newspapers, a match box, a billboard you name it I loved it. It would take years and migration to another country to answer to my true calling which lead back with me born passion, reading!. Except this Reading which is now apart of my spiritual work is my life. Who the hell knew! That is how I began my work, my Spiritual work, after my spiritual awakening, I came out a reader/medium, and have even gone deeper since then. I have written on this blog often about my road to initiation, and of my life as an initiated traditionalist/Child of Osun.
We were all created for a reason, our life’s journey on earth has a purpose, whether you believe it or not. Some people may ask “Obara, I have a crack head sister, was that her purpose?, and the answer could be yes, as daunting as it may be as well as no. Yes, because she may have very well come into being to fulfill that role as a karmic debt. Yes people karmic debts are real, and they play out at times in the oddest ways, not easy for people to understand. That crack head may have to be like that for several years or forever, if this is who she was meant to be, then this is how she came in to pay her Karmic debt.
The answer however to the question posed above could also be NO, and the reason for it being no is that somewhere down the line (if she is not paying a karmic debt, but is a crack head), she has fallen out of alignment with her cosmic energy/her life path. This imbalance could be attributed to many things, from Juju work, to soaking up other peoples vibrations/energy, being a spiritual sponge, and not being able to get rid of it. The reasons are plenty as to why many people stray away from their life’s purpose. Also drugs and alcohol are ruled by a set of malevolent entities/energies which lives within time and space, and a part of their function is to lead human beings off their path through their force and their influence over these substances. Christians call these entities the devil, but to them the devil is a single entity and is an adversary to the creator, when this is farthest from the truth. God has no adversary. The entities/energies were created by the same creator who created us , and who has given them the key and power to do exactly what they do, and this is to test the strength and will of the human beings.
Oprah Winfrey said that as a child she always loved to speak, she had the gift of Gab. She made an empire from doing just that, isn’t life remarkable? Lady Gaga said that her mantra has always been that she would one day be rich and famous, She is! I have a client, a gentleman who was a business manager for a very successful company, but his passion was always for carpentry. While he worked as a manager, he suffered from high blood pressure. One day he decided to quit his high paying job, and opened up a shop doing his carpentry. Since he has done that his blood pressure is stabilized, and he is the happiest he has ever been. He finally did what he enjoyed. It is the best thing to do what you like to do, go after what speaks to you.
Your life’s purpose and life’s journey is encrypted into the crevices if your mind and spirit, often times we fight it. While I grew and everybody urged me on to becoming a doctor, I could have pursued that wonderful profession for the purpose of prestige, power, giving my parents bragging rights (which parent do not want to brag that their children are Doctors or Lawyers?). I went to School, earned a degree, parked my degree, did hair dressing which I loved and am now a spiritualist, traditionalist, which in truth is not far from being a Doctor, except I am a Doctor of another Kind, a spiritual Doctor.
I loved to read and am now a reader/diviner (de books dem even de bill boards and match box) pointed the way. It was a hard road to reach where I now am. When I received Ifa, I was told during my life reading, that in all my incarnations I have always been a spiritualist, I have always done spiritual work. I urge you all to find your own niche, listen to life, and try to hear what it is saying to you. Some people cannot find a job, well maybe you ought not to work for people, perhaps you cannot find work because you were meant to work for yourself. Maybe you are a writer, or there is an idea in your mind which will enable you to work for your self and to either be comfortable in your earnings (not everyone was meant to be rich) or be extremely successful! Do not beat up on your self because you cannot find work, remember there are no concidences, and everything comes when it must!

Morning, I’m going through withdrawl symptoms But I nah say a thing…
Good morning everyone! Hope u all have an awesome day
I am off to bed…night Nile…night all…
Good night Ty…
My humble opinion, is that in embracing your spirituality, you get to explore yourself and so get to know your true self…this in turn allows you to be able to be who you were meant to be…
Obara, I absolutely love that you are a spiritual doctor…it may have been the former reincarnations as a spiritualist that allowed you to be able to with stand such a rigorous initiation path…
We are so happy to have you within this time and space…
Yes, we are extremely fortunate and for that we are very grateful.
Nile, I never heard of this dr. Wilson but will be looking up more of his stuff..thank you…
Ty, you are welcome–I was introduced to his work a few years ago…
I pray that as we all embark on this path together that we continue to trust ourselves, be guided by truth, stand firm in love, follow the path of light, and never waver come what may…
Following your dreams may be the harder road…the road with the greatest risks and sacrifices…but oh, the rewards are so much sweeter…
I love your disposition/perspective –carpe diem one and all!
There are so many examples of people following their dreams and being happy… I think we often discredit the importance of happiness…there is no dollar value on it and it brings contentment….if we try to live a life that is scripted by others that is not true to ourself then we are miserable… As a mother, I hope that I can serve as a guide, and cheer leader for my boys as they grow into their true self …I love them and that is most important to me… That they are happy, content, can pay their bills, and not allow… Read more »
Nile, very deep video…I like that dr. Wilson said that consciousness is a creative act…we get to create the world we live in…
I agree with how as a race we given power to others…if we stop support some businesses, we will get respect…tommy hilfiger cannot get me wear him clothes..those high end stores with racist attitudes cannot get me put me foot in dem doors…not I…
Word, sound, power
Pray, meditate, reflect…
Ty, yes indeed, we don’t have any excused, we control more than some would have us believe… Dr. Wilson is on point…
I was taught a long time ago by a wise fellow that if you seek truth in anything that is marketed to you, follow the money, it will show you all that you need to know…
They call us the minority yet most businesses depend on our dollars to survive…
In Florida, $7 out of every $10 spent by us, goes to a non black business…and less than one dollar of that is put back in black communities…
We have expensive tastes but need to look on how we spend our money…
Amh, glad to see u back…moving, packing and unpacking can be tedious, so we understand….
Mth, I pray that your daughter be healed now…ase!
Mth, follow your dreams hunny…
Yazzy, a grung you land me…di cow dem a talk de things…
Yazzy I pray that the love of the universe warms you warmly…
Courtney, just like the man you met, I hope to travel the world…
Thank you TY it has been an ordeal, not being able to do a lot of it myself, having to wait for others to help…not my style I like being independent. But it is all coming together.
Night everyone…busy day at work then went to exercise… I absolutely love this topic…against every odd…I was able to follow my dreams…it was a hard road, many times all by myself…I had to maneuver the adult world by myself for year alone…at first I was not sure how I did it…now as I am growing, I know that my help was not only from humans but from God, my ori, my guides, my ancestors, and the Orishas… As a child I had a recurring dream for years…I would fly and soar above cities and would make 3 stops…I would walk… Read more »
Ty, this is very profound; thank you for sharing…
Do that which you must Courtney–greetings, love and light!

Lalibela Obara is a busy body every day. Lol. She may be getting some well deserved rest to. I had a question..what if you have a passion… a calling… and it involves little to no monetary gains/benefits??? hence, you won’t be viewed/respected as being successful, since others won’t/don’t see, financially, what you have to show for it but to you, it’s your “empire”, it’s your “richness”, it’s your “wealth” Also, can someone really “be who they wanna be or whom the were created to be in this social & economical climate??

Good night everyone. I am going to read
Good night all ekaso be who u were created to be…sometimes i dont know who or what that is…i am listening to my head…its just all over the place at times lol but i dont let anyone dictate to me my life. It is much easier to live ur life than to live the life others want u to. I moved as a young adult away from all i knew n family not because i leaned on them but because they wanted to dictate my life. I was often asked why i would move far away with no one but… Read more »

Hey Kia, sometimes moving away is necessary
I like your spirit Kia. I, myself, at this point am thinking about going far, far away from my family, who juss too nosey, and as Teach wudda sey ‘everybody juss up inna everybody business’. From madda dung, dem feel like dem fi run mi life, and I am tired of all the b/s.

I like this topic. This is my huge problem. I am working on letting go and looking at what I want but sometimes that hinges on other people’s expectations. My brother says to me, hr wonders what ” my true self” is like. @ At the crackhead example, I’m trying my best not to be judgmental anymore because as they say “truth is stranger than fiction” sometimes you see certain people and situations and you wonder why, but perhaps that’s how it ought to be for whatever reason. Makes you look at life differently. The trick now is figuring out… Read more »

Greetings, love and light one and all–let me read and then opine…
My parrie, YW what’s up?
Thanks everyone for you kind words. Teach, I dont mean to share my dreams with others, its just that I needed help from them. I will not allow anyone to let me give up onmy dreams. Thanks again Teach.
M I can’t imagine living without the change of seasons, I don’t blame you for wanting to experience it. Just like I would like to experience life on an island or on a remote mountain side. No one has the right to denounce your dreams they are YOURS and no one else’s. You are giving them a gift by sharing them, they should treat it as such.
Hi Charles, If this is something you liked, to the point of doing it for free (not that you will or have to, just making reference to the PASSION you may have for it), then yes, it may be what you were meant to be. This also points to you being a son of Orisha Ogun!
Good afternoon Obara n ES crew, now I’m beginning to think about my child hood. Growing up, I could fix things, like wrist watches, games. Once I have tried to fix our television. Along the way, one had to put those desire and chase other means of living. Till date, I still try to fix my car, whenever it developed problems. Mosttimes, I’ll have to even tell the mechanics what to do. I know I have a passion for fixing things. Could this be what, I’m called to do. Nice topic, this is going to make me think.
Charles you have such innocence when you blog with us. So humble. I like it 🙂
Maybe you can start by doing fixing things on the side. Like a project every weekend or every other weekend and over time you can take on major projects and who knows.. ya just might even decide to kick whatever you were doing before that to the curb and stick to the projects you would have been working on.
Go after it Charles!
Good morning Yazzy, thanks for the compliment. I’m already asking Oludumare to direct me on how to go.
bwoy Courtney, ah pon de grun yuh lan mi tiddeh, lolol, same suh!
Mth, if they cannot appreciate your dream, then do not share any more with them, do not allow anyone to devalue your hopes and dreams. Dreams are created first in the mind/thought, but it takes determination and strength to make them manifest, often times people will discourage you, but it is for you to see that your dream manifest!
grung, Whispers, I like it!
Yes cause I’m very soft spoken and I don’t like to shout so when I speak to him in hushed and tell him to put hands and feet on someone no one is none the wiser!
Teach large up.I think this post is so timely. A couple weeks ago I was watching an interview with Cicely Tyson on OWN. She said she was a Secretary/Typist (whatever) and she said she knew deep within she wasnt not made just to type. She felt a greater purpose. I feel the same way. I now more than ever,want tolive outside of Jamaica. I dont hold the view that farrin is a bed of roses. I just want to experince some simple things like seeing the seasons change. However the few ppl that I have shared this with, seem to… Read more »
The people in your circle are not exposed my love. It is clear in their response, you possess courage they wish they had and because you have the nerve to follow through they are intimidated by that. I work in the casino and this man from Mexico came to my window and just started speaking if his world travels and how he was in pools as big as the casino, places where u feel as if you are dancing in clouds. Ibiza and Dubai the Greek isles and I asked him how he did it and his answer was simple… Read more »

Courtney Donna Summer song bad girls was my favorite song for years, but as mi sey, mi like de business end of the deal, and mi like the phrase “My stable of girls” and I relish the thought of being called “MADAME”! mi all have mi madame outfit inna mi head, lolol!
Lmao I cud see it now sexy and sultry but tasteful
With one houseman with a name like whisper cause he lurks in the shadows that goes everywhere and hardly speaks but ruthless when necessary for the johns who get out of hand

It’s the oldest profession for a reason my grandfather was a pimp
Courtney you hAVE ENTERED MY MIND, LOLOL
Yw, sey him ah fret nung, grung!!
I draw the line at kids and animals but that’s about it once you are a consenting adult. I can make all your fantasies come true
Lol man I weak it is what it is I just had a convo about this at work and how I would want to cater to the people with weird fetishes that just want to be dominated or just want the girl put on a particular pair of shoes!! Ha the jokes
even though I am who I am, I have always secretly wanted to be a Madame, with a stable of girls, This is the God’s truth, doan tell mi pickney dem, I am attracted to that life, not the whore life, i could never see my self being a prostitute, although I like those women, I really do, not de crakhead dawn type, de Marilyn Monroe type, whey know sey it is business, fair exchange is no robbery…mi chat tuh much? now mi gone inna freting mode
Nuh fret, Obara Meji. I am pro-prostitution. No, No, not because I am a man and would purchase (not saying that I would not – I do not know because it has never come up * Rahtid me ah fret now) but for a couple reasons: 1. “fair exchange is no robbery” – Agree with this because I prefer the honesty 2. It would be safe for the prostitutes 3. Any kind of forced sexual assault would have to have a rougher sentence 4. It is going exist either in the dark or within the light – I prefer in… Read more »
If you think about it, who in their right mind would CHOOSE to be a crackhead?, people may say, “is dem wuklis an waan dweet, or drunkaready Freddy love drink ei si, him love rum more dan him wife…but I am here to tell you that there is a bigger pitcure dan crackhed Dawn and drunkaready Freddy, something way beyond our comprehension!
To me, someone may choose to be a crackhead (or whatever “problem”) in life because as individuals we affect others around us. We affect those closest to us on an even deeper level. Now, with the idea of karmic debts in mind, we may choose to face a certain challenge to repay a debt or (without Karmic debt) to affect some change in a loved ones life….maybe….

Morning MTH, oh my, she will be in my prayers, MTH, she will get well soon!
Teach, big up yuself. Nunu, Courtney, AMH, all bloggers and peepers whowill join us today, morning everyone. Trust that everyone had a great weekend. My big daughter is extremely sick with the Chick-V.
MTH, I will keep you and her in my prayers..
Prayers and positive thoughts headed your way M.
Ohhh M!! I am so sorry to hear sweetie!! What can we do to help? Mi nuh like how yuh seh she “extremely” sick. Don’t claim it M! She is well!!! She aguh nyam da chick-v deh cawz a wi seh more fyah to foul!
MTH, she shall over come, through care and the added energy of positive vibes coming from your fellow bloggers.
@Yw, yes all those fall under what is called DESIRE, sex/fame et al. while sex is a natural part of the human living/life/functions, there are of course desires which goes way beyond the normal. same like Fame, it may become natural for some, whil some lay dung pon de couch for it…when it hits the level of DESIRE, then these beings are at work…..I agree with you on the Sting song, lol
@Amh, yes, we have to look deep within to pull up our answers…Good morning!
This is a wonderful post! I too share your love of reading/teaching yourself Obara. Throughout school I was always looking for other sources of the information my teachers would give me so that I was seeing the subject as whole as possible and not just from ones perspective.
Sometimes I wonder if I have chosen the right career. Most days I LOVE my job, but then I wonder if it is because it is really the only thing I have done….
Happy day to you all!
AMH!!! It’s been forever mami! Blessings to you and the fam!
And to you and yours! you have all been missed.
Good Morfternoon Obara Meji and the ES crew. I hope all is well. I won’t say great post because you must be tired to hear that by now. A curiosity I had in regard to the crackhead (and any similar case) is if it is a possibility that overcoming that “affliction” is a part of the crackhead’s life path? “… drugs and alcohol are ruled by a set of malevolent entities/energies which lives within time and space.” – Would this include sex and fame (rather hunger for fame)? Is the possession and power that we may allow the “thing” to… Read more »
It never is, this is why w have to trust, and not conform to what others wants of us. The pressure of profession/occupation pleasing mommy or daddy can be too much and can push you away from your fullest potential, be who you were created to be!
The people you may keep in your life have different wants/expectations of you. Trying to please everyone, in my opinion, fractures your mind because you have to shift who you are when around different people. Doing this more than seldom must lead you to lose sight of yourself. – This thought is going somewhere but I am not sure where yet….
Lmfao! Yw @ it again. When I read ya comment I too felt like the thought was going somewhere and mi deh ya a wait fi di big shebang!
Good morning, Courtney
Our head/soul/spirit/higher self whatever you want to call it speaks to us Nunu if we listen and trust we can know the road to follow
Good Morning to one and all Obara this post here is right on time! I just finished reading on karmic debts and relationships. Thinking and trying to gain deeper understanding about my life thus far. How my interactions and deeds affect others but ultimately myself. I also have a passion for reading and for some reason people just tell me any and everything (sometimes TMI) but I digress. I understand all to well the pressures of conforming to what everyone deems as right and just. I have always known I could do anything I wanted but never settled on anything… Read more »
Morning Courtney. “How my interactions and deeds affect others but ultimately myself.” Excellent stuff here, in my opinion.
Court, your passion will find ya sweetie.
Good morning fam! Hope u all had a great weekend too! Off to read, yail up Teach!
