Hello to all my bloggers, peepers, new comers and sometimers. For a while now I have been observing that sometimes when I post on topics which may be considered deep, the response is limited. I don’t know why buy the bloggers by pass the post as in making comments or even asking pertinent questions. I at first was a bit disconcerted by it, and wondered to myself if I was going in too deep with minds which were here with me daily but are not fully yet awake. As usual I pondered this for a time. Within my own musings, I came to the conclusion that I must not watch the responses, I must continue to post as I like and so I did, however again I noticed that when I posted anything on Obeah, or an Obeah story which I may write, or anything related to Obeah (oonuh love de obeah mix up ei si), or if I do a “how to” post such as teaching you how to make a bath, or how to overcome an enemy those posts goes through the roof. Even on my site search the most searched posts are the do it yourself ones (baths) and ones about Obeah which are most often told in story form on embracingspirituality.
Again I began to think, because although I will post daily what comes to my mind, regardless the topic, I really believe that you, all of you who comes here to this blog site were led here, notice the camaraderie, the family unity here and the peace, the love and care this is found among us all here?. I understand a lot of how life works, how our spirits work. I know how our “Head” or inner consciousness work and when a person is on a path it if it is a good head will lead you all to the correct place, and embracingspirituality is a good place, the internet is a scary place at times, but here you are in good company. If I had a place such as this when I was becoming awake (which was very very harsh, I cannot describe what I went through), I would have been very happy because I I would have been reassured that I was on the right path. The memory of those times is very painful, because for most who goes through an awakening, a true one can tell you, if they survive it, that it is no fun!
I am a Meta Physician, Spiritualist, Medium, traditionalist, Healer, Diviner, Initiate Spiritual teacher and more. My reason for doing this blog is to help others who may have gone through the jarring experience of an awakening such as myself or who maybe going through it. I pitied myself those days and also my children for having a mom who was in such a distressful way. I feared that my enemy,( I use the term “my enemy” here because whenever I use negative language while speaking about myself I direct it to an enemy and not me, you all should practice to do the same) would be locked away into a mental institution and my children would not have my enemy again. I was flung into a dark murky pool of confusion not knowing how to swim or having anything to hold on to, imagine the fear? My young children worried for me, as I worried for myself. They had no father and no family and so I cried everyday at that prospect. My enemy was in a pitiful state back then all due to my becoming awake, which I had no idea that this was what I was going through.
Please watch Penny dreadful and focus on Vanessa Ives in season 1, and her wakening, hers was very different from mine and by that I mean the trauma which brought it on, but there are similarities in the experiences, although hers within the series tends to haunt her intermittently. I suppose it is the directive of the show to keep us the viewers all on edge, so there bares the need to exaggerate her torment after she has already been set on her path. I say kudos to the writers, who I suspect are apart of something deep, very deep not withstanding the exaggerations written within the script to throw us all off I must say. My own has quieted and I am now settled into who I am supposed to be.
Her trauma came through being led to deceive her best friend who was like her sister by seducing her fiance, her friend caught them and cut her off forever. A distraught Vanessa was astonished by her wanton behavior which resulted in the shame and embarrassment of being caught at it, and at becoming an out cast by her friend and her esteemed family. This trauma which she experienced (most people become awake after going through trama or some traumatic event) because not only did she lose her bff, she also lost her fiance who was her bff Mina’s brother. The shame, horror and disgrace which came upon her because of her own salacious actions sent her to the asylum, placed into straight jackets and declared insane, this was during this time when she began to experience her awakening. To watch what she went though would be very hard for many of us knowledgeable people who have been awakened by virtue of powerful beings not of this realm, but for a person who has no knowledge of the spectacle which they may call Vanessa’s experience as played out in the series of Penny Dreadful, it is just a great show.
It was very hard for me to watch, because it brought me back to a time when I felt all that Vanessa went through. I thank God that I was not placed into an asylum, or placed on any medication, but there were times where I wondered if this would happen to my enemy. I had no one to comfort me back then, bloggers I needed a hug, I wished silently for my mother to hug me. I never asked for the hug, but I hungered for it, (I am quick to hug, as I remember those days when I needed this simple three letter word).I was plagued by fear which brought along its companions, anxiety attacks and panic attacks, my enemy was a shadow of myself back then.
I made the blog to assist all who may be experiencing such and need a source of comfort, I wanted to be that source. There is no price attached to my offer and I sit and blog daily in hope that I can relieve someone from whatever pain that they are having.
I have not held back any of my personal business, so till all Ifa come tell mi sey mi chat tuh much All this in an effort to be there for you, all of you who I do not know. This blog will not be forever, I grow tired everyday. If not for my daughter Osun Karode (Oshun-Karo-day) I perhaps would have stopped blogging already, I have no agenda with this blog other than to provide a service to humanity by sharing what I know at no cost to anyone who visits here. I say this because as I have said before I realize that most of you do not gravitate to the much deeper post which teaches about life, culture,tradition, esoterics, the universe, the deities and more. Yet I have not even gone as deep as I could go.
So hear this, I am asking you all to send in post suggestions so that I will write on that which you are interested in. It makes no sense for me to be typing (and I cannot type) that which you are not interested in. Perhaps I will leave certain topics off this site and teach them in the school. Today I want all who come here to give me some post suggestion and I will change the direction of the blog where I try to enlighten your minds on how to handle your awakening process. It is so sad when I think about it. You all are not use to getting all of this from an African who is also a Jamaican dare I question that? O ma se oooo! (such pity). Anyway, please send in your post suggestions.
Love and Light, to All
