When I was a little girl growing up in Kingston Jamaica, I was my mothers biggest fan. Oh how I loved her! I had no thought to the feeling that I had for her as a young child, (as in loving her so much), I only knew seeing her made me happy, and while all my sisters and small companions would go and play with each other I would sit by her feet while she sat with her friend Miss Ruth on our veranda and listen to her conversations. She was (she is still alive) a woman of strength and power. I was in awe of her!
I realized as I grew that most of what I knew and applied to my life were from her and things that I either saw her do or what she taught us. I was most impressed by her spiritual knowledge, she never explained anything to us much in way of herbs and cures but whatever she did pertaining to things unseen (the dead) which may pass through our house (there was a certain smell they came with) or using kerosene oil and calico cloth and banana skin to remove a splinter deeply imbedded into our feet. Old time remedies never failed
I had no idea then that this woman was teaching me, preparing me for what I would later be, I doubt she even knew. She never taught me in the conventional way of teaching, she did as she did and I looked on, that was it, but I looked on with keen interest, and in my brain I recorded and I remembered and I applied what I could to my life and to the life of others and to my beloved children.
I had no Idea that a time would come where we would leave Jamaica. I was sad of our leaving. Jamaica is the greatest place on Earth, so much vibes and filled with nature! It truly is, but I know now that all our lives are not the same and we each are destined for one thing or another, so when the wind comes to take us onto our next stage of life, we have to do as what is written, this is the code of life.
America taught me a lot, and I realized after I came and after going through so many torments, ups and down, that which I had gone through, how could I have handled them if they had occurred in Jamaica? to migrate was a good thing, because it assisted me in finding my life path, which by that time I had no idea existed. I have a point to make do not get bored with the post, just continue reading!
Most of my life I have spent alone. It was hard at first, I had no idea that I needed to be alone. I believed that I needed friends and a social life and family and all the hullabaloo that was life. I had no idea that for the benefit of me finding my self and for the benefit of me using my life to assist others I needed to be alone, for in doing that was how I learned and discovered what I came to this plane with, which were/are hidden within the deep crevices of my mind , I did not need any distractions, I needed to slowly unlock all which I had brought with me.
At first, I fought loneliness. Loneliness had been with me forever, but as a child I paid it no mind. I had no friends growing up, in school I played by myself and if I got close to anyone, it lasted for a short time. (My children are all going through this very thing, yet I cannot explain to them what is to come from it for each or them individually, they all have their own life purpose, but it painful for me to watch as they struggle to comprehend why they are separate and apart from everybody they know). It seems to me that all my life I have been waiting for something, Whew! I have never expressed this before to anyone, and perhaps because all of you who may read this are nameless and faceless to me makes it easier to share my inner most personal thoughts. Please do not laugh, I know this is the internet and overtime, I would have shared my life with the world, but for now and in the moment (which is how I live my life) it is soothing for me to share these things. I will have no regrets!
I still am alone, sure I have my children, but I spend most of my time alone. There are moments when I integrate with the family, but after I find my space, usually in my bedroom where I lay in the dark and think, not worry (I have nothing to worry about, I know better) but I think! Still waiting for something, something which I know is coming and that something is good. I believe it is a message or perhaps messages. I am unsure, but I just know that I am waiting and have been my whole life. You should also know that I Chanel messages from non-physical beyond time and space.
While waiting for God knows what, I have done plenty with my life, my fantastic life. I have written in posts already about my fantastic life and people have asked me to explain what is so fantastic about my life. I never had to ponder or hesitate before answering, it is fantastic because I am alive, and I know my purpose! Read here. I started this blog because my awakening was very very hard, I felt as if I could not survive it (mentally) while I went through it read here , and for years I could not talk about it, it is still hard to speak of all that I went through. When I began this blog site, I did not care about anything else than sharing my life lessons with you all and if you responded you did, if not, I told myself I would write every day until a voice told me to stop. I stopped for a while and was urged everyday through emails of people who had been reading and not commenting, but they stirred emotions in me, and I considered coming back to the blog, but I dragged my feet until blogger Sa-Fo emailed me, and what she said made me come back, I thank you Sa-Fo.
Over the weekend, the song below kept playing in my head, and I played it on my computer over and over again. I wondered what was the message. Messages comes to us from everywhere, but what was the message in this particular song? Embracing Spirituality is here, for how long will I continue to post and write, I honestly do not know, but for know I want you all to know that Iron sharpeneth Iron, and if I am here to answer your questions on spirituality, metaphysics, then ask the questions. Often times great post are up, and I expect to be questioned on them, but nothing! Silence.
I have peepers who email me everyday, they do not comments, but I will get email such as;
Dear Obara I read your blog and I would like your help, I need a job can you help me;
Dear Obara, I want to bring my lover back how can you help;
Dear Obara, I need to learn spirituality please help;
Dear Obara please teach me De Laurence Obeah;
And so many more, often times I do not respond, because I find myself offended by some of the request and other times, I take them funny and with others I respond, I allow my head to lead me, Yet here are people who are obviously reading the blog, the opportunity is there to ask questions and grow, yet they feel better in emailing me with ridiculous questions, (some)!
Here is a blog with much useful information and not much interactions, O ma se o (what a pity)! where was I, Obara Meji, when I was waking up with no one to help me, with nobody to ask what was happening to me, oh how I suffered in my awakening. It was because of compassion, why I opened my whole life to you all, so that if you had questions, as I did when I went through my awakening, about anything regarding life, religion, tradition, spirituality, spirits, entities, ghost/duppy. angels. God. Orishas, anything at all, I would be here to assist. That is the purpose of this blog, of me sharing all and everything of me opening myself up to ridicule and mockery, to criticism, to all things,
To this day, real Spiritual people, shut dem mouths, they will only tell you so much. While I have not let out any secrets from an initiate, I have been completely honest and open in sharing what I know. The day will come when this blog exists no more and many people will say, “If I had known”, mark my words! I will be alive and well, but no longer accessible to all. I am here in this world to teach, to raise your consciousness and mine also while helping you, I am sure of it. Of this I am sure.
For sometime now, I have been hearing silence! I listened and heard it again. I pondered on it and wondered what should I do, I felt like closing myself off and shutting down the blog and going away (real talk, remember I am dealing with my fear of rejection, read here), I feel as if I am writing and sharing and it is all in vain,. I know, I know, it is not so, but that is how I feel. You do not have to reassure me, the feeling is my own and it may be attributed to whatever energy is around me now. I feel as if what I wanted to accomplish here on this blog (teaching) has missed its mark, and I now feel foolish! I hear silence and it does not sound good!
“The Sounds Of Silence”
I’ve come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence.
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.
“Fools,” said I, “You do not know –
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you.”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence.
A palace that got burnt is preparing for better aesthetics……Yoruba Proverb![A disappointment may well be a blessing in disguise; don’t lose hope.]
All religion are valid as long as it teaches peace and love…..Obara Meji!
There are no disappointments in life, only lessons learned…..Obara Meji
It is 1:56am, September 28th, morning after the full lunar eclipse. I wake to the sounds of croaking lizards. I wondered what they said and in my foolishness of “googling” I came upon your post… The Silence of which you speak is an eerie aftermath of peace after the purging storm to come upon your place of birth. The Silence blocks the sounds of misery and anguish that would tear at your heart and compel you to return to help. Yet, that is not your task…it is for those who it was meant for… The ones who will pick up… Read more »
Hello Tina welcome
The Sounds of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel and Gods and Monsters by Lana del Rey and another version by Jessica Lange!
Just finished reading all the comments. Ty, what you share alwys helps us. My heart is so broken. Broken from childhood. I actually hate silence and would always have either the tv or radio on. I now sleep with the radio off.
Can someone please post the names of the two songs posted up top?
I am off to bed, I have an early day tomorrow…I will be back on…sweet dreams to u all…
Night Ty love n light to yu n urs. Yazzy a nominate u n Yw for couples fear factor loooool
Lol…as long as a don’t have to touch a croaking lizard…u ever hear dem drop…Lawd…
Night mi gwaan sleeo. Eyes heavy … love n light ES family
Night Kia Boooooooo! I’m gonna call it lights out for me as well. Unuh cyah mad fi lef mi one in here a chat to mi self! 😀
Night sweetie Obara and all my sweeties!
Yazzy mi seh Ty strong enuh cah i cyaa maniji di sinkle bible str88 nopesss! Just dun drink my cinnamon n honey weh Nunu recommend.Lol
Kia mi already stawt deh one deh which is not bad at all they were both staples in my daily oatmeal porridge and mi apple cinnamon tea wid a toops a honey. .. wi bussss! 😀
No it no bad but ummm wah we a drink it fah again loooooool
It maybe all this silence and quietness that pushed me to get busy… And keep busy…I always find something to do… Now I am trying to meditate to help to quiet my mind,..
Odd isn’t it….
As an only child, loneliness was my good friend…I remember as a child teaching my dolls and teddy bears, writing with chalk on my room door, listening out for my mother to keep mum when she approached…
My mother suffered from depression and I was her beating stick, she took out her frustration on me…so I kept quiet so she would not beat me…
I was an only child like yu for years, so i learned to entertain myself quite well. Reading was always my bff n still is.
Even tho ur mum abused u, i know u were devastated n sad when ur parents left u. (((Hugs TY)))
Thanks for the hugs…
Those were 2 hard years when I was left alone…I cried nightly for my grandmother for I know if she was alive, I would not be alone…
To make matters worse, I am scared of croaking lizards and night a few came in my room…so I barely slept those 2 years…
I learned so much during those years that has stayed with me to this day…
((((((HUGE HUGS TY))))))))) you say it so nonchalant but I still feel the pain. So happy you aren’t a bitter person and you have found love from your hubby and your children.
Even though I was younger than my mother, I was older and wiser,..I knew she was sick…depression is a disease…I love her and know that she was young and knew no better,.she had many woes and I learnt from her that I had to face problems,..she was my greatest teacher…
I think she is surprised that I can love her despite all she did to me…I have forgiven her,moved on…but it took time for me to get there…
Bravo Ty! Both you and Obara do very well in this area. Always highlighting your momz mishaps but always sounding forgiving and respectful.
I’ve never disrespected my mother (to her face or her spirit but sometime mi dis cuss and get it out mi system fi di moment but it doesn’t hurt anyone…
Our parents were in deed our greatest teachers! Tho no abuse is greater than the other… I can’t be as forming for the sexual abuses that parent’s violate and defy their kids body mind and spirit…. that is where they are plagued with detrimental psychological trauma…
Yazzy, sexual abuse to a child is an abomination…the scars and hurt from this is deep…it takes time…forgive and release yourself first then u can do it for your mom…I resented my mom for years, then I learned that these wounds can fester and spread to other areas of my life…
Time will give you the answers you seek my love…I am off to pray at my altar and I will be praying for us all…
The simon and gar funnel song invoke sad childhood memories for me….when my parents would argue, it was one of the staple songs that played on the radio in the 2am hours…so when I could not sleep I would hear it,,,
Nite Yazzy u a di bestess! I can only maniji once weekly lol it nassy to rastafariiiiii

Night Toy. What’s up babygirl?
Sam smith and Lana del ray
I am on my phone before my exercise class so unno bear with me…
As a teenager, my parents left me and many nights i laid on bed and cried…
Now my life is so busy that i often crave the silence…
Night everyone, where do I start…so much to say…
I am an only child and have been alone for a long time…i would hide in my room and read for fear i would be beayen by my mom…
Good evening comrades! From mawning mi deh listen to the song over and over again. It’s a poignant song especially because of the tone of their voices.The song speaks volumes and all those who can recognize the message in the words will see it.
Hi ES fam… I would have a panic attack if this site was gone… 🙁 I come here everyday even the days when I can’t blog in the day. I come on in the wee hours of the morning reading.
How funny it is that these two particular song are giving deep massages bu in a different way, one is filling you in on your life and why you are here and the other is soothing all the doubts you may have of life and of your role here!
Jah know Obara you know when I wrote my comment I didn’t even see yours …. you hit the nail on the head!
Obara I am fascinated with my Lana Del Rey!!!! Dope joints!
Obara I think the Gods and m ok notes song says it allllll… innocence lost! Some days we just wanna let your guards down and dream of living that trailer park trash lifestyle and not be judged. Forced to grow up early definitely lands one on both sides of the fence!
I definitely took the earlier song posted to be more on some spiritual dilemna as with Lana’s joint.
Kia she studied metaphysics!
someone commented in You tube on this song and the meaning, I find the comment very interesting, because in the explanation, I see the part of me in where she says those who have been neglected, and sad privy to a reality most people run like hell from even trying to understand. This part I identify with, losing my childhood by becoming a child mother still in school and facing the world alone and on my own! The Comment This song isn’t about innocence lost, but rather, innocence destroyed–and what that creates. It’s a very intelligent, sad, insightful piece of… Read more »
Yes I read the comment too. It made me listen again too
Yazzy madilous Yaz 😀 😀
kaka claaat wah mi go lissen dem song yah fah looooooooooooool lana del rey hmmmmm she definitely pon a different vibe
(((((((((((((Hugs Kia))))))))))))), de songs dem up top are so different in their messages yet they are riding me like a plague, ah do not know why!
They are both haunting and that is what I love! I am strange I know, but I love me!
The original song! Lana De Rey!
(((HUGS))) I KNOW STR8888888 <3 <3 <3
KIA THE CAPS WERE AN ERROR, i LOVE YOU MY DEAR, i WOULD NEVER YELL AT YOU OR ANYBODY, YOU KNOW THAT! rass, de caps on again, mi type while looking at the keys, mi cyaan type enuh, lol
Yes, I get it Obara …it’s spiritual, it’s spiritual silence. It is plenty here to read and re-read so you taking saturday off was not bad. It however is painful to think that I would come here to greet my family and they have moved away. I come to ES to learn, laugh, cry, cuss, to read others thoughts on any given topic we feel to discuss. Take the CAPS off nuh feel like you yelling at me 🙁 LITERALLY lol
Jessica Lange did a fantastic job of Lana del rey’s song!
Bloggers perhaps I am going through something! ah dem two song ah plague me from wha day yah!
Gods and Monsters In the land of gods and monsters, I was an angel, Living in the garden of evil, Screwed up, scared, doing anything that I needed, Shining like a fiery beacon. You got that medicine I need, Fame, liquor, love, give it to me slowly. Put your hands on my waist, do it softly, Me and God, we dont get along, so now I see… No ones gonna take my soul away, I’m living like Jim Morrison. Headed towards a fucked up holiday. Motel sprees, sprees, and I’m singing, “Fuck yeah, give it to me, this is Heaven,… Read more »
ALL WEEK END THE SONG UP TOP HAS BEEN SPEAKING TO ME AND ALSO THIS SONG….. this particular version…..WHY??
Kia, I put the questions in the post because as I write, I go with what I hear and my feelings, silence never bothers me. But on Saturday I did not post, and it touched me, why? because I felt that it would be a waste of time. Then I began to ponder if the site’s life was about to end, and I wondered where would I go from here in getting information out to people which I believed needed them, I asked my companions, and NOTHING! SO I WROTE A POST ON MY FEELINGS AND THEN I HEARD THE… Read more »
“…. at times the question has been in your mind all your life and to come here early morning and to see your thoughts typed by another is astonishing”
Hey Kia Boooooooo! I loved this line!
remember enuh I do not see the world as others do, as a matter of fact we all see the world differently!
Ok O. is the silence bothering you because you hardly get silence? Or is the silence from us who not asking questions?
Kia, read again, there is nothing wrong with silence, in silence I have learned a lot
In this post I am saying that, I hear silence and am wondering what it is, is it time to move on and away, is there a shift happening , I am questioning the kind of silence I am hearing
our blogger Ty has told me that from the post which I did on setting up an ancestral altar. she has made her own, and from time to time as she adds to her altar she would send me pictures…..she has no idea of how my eyes mist up whenever she send me the pictures, I have never told her, I oohhhh and awwwwwwww, but the sentiments, the feelings goes way deeper than that. I am proud! That is one example of what I wanted to achieve, I wanted to do what Padrino, Mr. Mitchel and Mr. Pierre all my… Read more »
Hail all people I have just one question…what’s wrong with silence! Sometime to the way my mind busy, I crave some silence. To just lay in a dark room with my thoughts is too much noise at times. Also Obara its not that we don’t have questions, sometimes those questions are answered from reading the comments and your replies. Plus at times the question has been in your mind all your life and to come here early morning and to see your thoughts typed by another is astonishing. Nuff wow and oooh the computer hear when others don’t….

I love the site, I just feel that I need to be sharing more and more need to be learning from me, am I presumptuous? I do not think so, I have been privy to a lot and I have a lot to share.
I suffered for all that I know, I do not want my suffering to be in vain!
Thank you Mth, Thank You!
The latter is on point Yazzy!
Teach nuff respect. ES Fambily hold tight.
Teach, I know it can feel down right messed-up at times but hold di fate, do not get weary in doing good. Its because of this blog that I have learnt some life lessons and made me more aware. Through this blog kindred spirits come to gather and feed each other thirst for knowledge and friendship. Dont go my girl, you are loved and appreciated.
Prefect M! Tell har fi mi! 😀 not caz it nuh stink a road and mi nah loud it up nuh mean seh weh ya do ovova yasso nuh count or nuh knowledge nuh gain. I’m living your teachings DAILY! #WORD!
Well I must say that this blog site has allowed me to meet some amazing people through the interaction on the internet. I thank Olodumare!
I thank Olodumare! ASE!
Or even being exposed to tradition early (dem bless fi grow up inna tradition so yuh and exposed to a great way of life) has allowed them to really “see” and “live”
Obara you think after your kids saw how shitty people can be out there and life that they voluntarily withdrew them self from that exposure? Or maybe after witnessing all you had been thru they were taught early to be alert and them not being very social is just a coping/survival mechanism? Or maybe the energy/beings/spirits around them are very protective of them and their vibrations and prefers them like this?? What’s your thoughts?
lol, np Yw
Cami you are brilliant!
Haffi touch out for a bit again!
Mi elder, mi abuelo, mi guide…

ah who name Sammy Yw?
ASe oooooo Cami, and I know you are sincere!
what did he translate Cami? What did he say about the songs meaning!
This song is not too different than how you have used it to state your feelings. For instance see me break it up… “At first, I fought loneliness. Loneliness had been with me forever, but as a child I paid it no mind. I had no friends growing up, in school I played by myself and if I got close to anyone, it lasted for a short time. ” “Hello darkness, my old friend, I’ve come to talk with you again, Because a vision softly creeping, Left its seeds while I was sleeping, And the vision that was planted in… Read more »
BTW, I had this song in my 8th grade music class. Professor eyes were so grey he looked blind, but those said eyes held something ancient and curious enough when he translated the songs meaning he hypnotized the entire class with his voice.
Is so Obara hypnotize me with her knowledge!
Cami, you are such an inspiration to me, mi nah lie, you really mek mi feel inspired I thank God and Osun for you!
And me thank Oldumare, Osun, Yemaja, Ellegbua, me Padrino and all the events that assisted in me coming to you..and to your Padrino and spirit guides and Ifa for presenting you to me and to those who seek this knowledge…ASE.
Well, well, well…Morning Obara, Yw, Yazzy, Charles… Yw, You’ve said the words of thank you best. Obara has made a genuine reflection of not only her position but of countless others. This site is UNIQUE, it’s unique in its topics and way of interaction. It isn’t Obara that needs the information, it is us the curious who are in need of the information that we only dream of…or is it that if it’s not coming from Hollywood or the church it isn’t good enough? Me tired from me 12 hour shift, yet I find time to be here because here… Read more »

“Fools,” said I, “You do not know – Silence like a cancer grows. Hear my words that I might teach you. Take my arms that I might reach you.” But my words like silent raindrops fell And echoed in the wells of silence And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made. And the sign flashed out its warning In the words that it was forming. And the sign said, The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls And tenement halls And whispered in the sound of silence. Play the music, read the lyrics!… Read more »
Good Morning my sweetie Obara. Good morning all my sweeties here. Good morning peepers and world. Please pardon my absence. It was not intentional. For two months I have been working my ass off every single day and while I tried not to complain as others need a job and can’t even find one… it just took a toll on me. I NEED rest. I’m still not rested… my absence was basically the point where I began even overworking further and just unable to be present and interactive. If I did, I would have been a zombie as I was… Read more »
Thank you Charles!
Hello Obara and ES crews. You have touched my life in a special way, this blog has made me understand spirituality more. I don’t wanna wake up and this beautiful blog is gone. How I wish I know what to do in order to keep you here. I felt dejected when you said one day this blog will be shut down. This is the true believer I know for now. So I have come to embracingspirituality.
Morning to all the beautiful people. I live with that feeling of loneliness a lot. It can be very polarizing but I have learned to accept it to some degree. Attempting to fill that void took me through some painful experiences but it makes me stronger and for that I am grateful. O i admire you everyday. Teaching is a love and a passion. It’s really a thankless job but your purpose is to guide and enlighten us neophytes on our spiritual journey. Although our acquaintance has been brief I consider you one of the great teachers in my life.… Read more »
It figures that YOU would GET the whole gist of the post!
Kudos to you YW!
“Most of my life I have spent alone. It was hard at first, I had no idea that I needed to be alone. I believed that I needed friends and a social life and family and all the hullabaloo that was life.” In this post there are so many different parts. This part resonates with me because it is when we are alone, when we put aside distractions, when face the loneliness, when we FIND THE SILENCE that we can understand who we are, what we want, and where we want to be in life. Why is this important? Because….well,… Read more »

Thank you Obara Meji!! Through sharing you offer us great opportunity for self-growth; For the blog, it is a chance for us to share and help others. To me, ES is more than about spirituality…it is about humanity. Your posts are varied. Sometimes they are encouraging, engaging, entrancing, or simply fun. Always, though, they are enlightening.
Thank you Obara Meji, for being you and for sharing you with us….
