MUSIC AND SPIRITUALITY – A UNIVERSAL CONNECTION

Music connects us all to each other and to the divine. I have written many times, here on this blog, posts on music and the effects it has on human beings on a whole and also the response it gets from beings within time and space. There is nothing spiritual or traditional which can be done without song or music involved. In Jamaica, we have our beautiful spiritual kumina, which is the beat of the drums, one is the playing caste, which weaves all types of complicated rhythms but it is what tells the story during the kumina, and the other is called kbandu which keeps a steady rhythm, hypnotic like, and I believe this is the one that places many people, during the kumina, in trance or spiritual possession. The drums played in Kumina, Revival, Spiritual Baptists, or in any other traditional or spiritual religion, while beating, seems to have the ability to send the practitioners or attendees into the world of time and space while they still exist in the physical realm. The drum calls, it pulsates, it dictates, it is magical, it is sensual, it is commanding.... and when coupled with voices singing in unison and in tune, it has the ability to rise or create some particular type of energy, that when brought forth, can do anything. ...

MY EXPERIENCE WITH DOCTORS FROM THE SPIRITUAL REALMS

There are many subjects that I would like to introduce on the blog or post about, but to do so would be mind-blowing to many who visit this site. Because of our humanity (and in that I mean our human limitations of the mind), there are things beyond this realm that many of us can never comprehend or even imagine, but  we can only accept it when it is either put into a book as fantasy or made into a movie to entertain us. The story below is an experience I had during the time of the horrific tragedy which happened in New York, now known as 9/11. After having this experience, I realized exactly who these doctors were and I certainly wish that I could say it here for all and sundry to absorb and believe, but unfortunately I cannot go into it as I know it will confuse many. Please enjoy this story. ...

IN HONOR OF THE OSUN FESTIVAL!

Many years ago, and this was before I went to Africa to receive/initiate Osun, I went to Jamaica to work for someone there, spiritually. When I came home I had a vision that I must go to Jamaica and bring an "elaborate gift" to a place called Roaring River. I had heard of Roaring River, which is in Westmoreland, Jamaica, but I had never been there. ...

THE HANDLERS OF THE REALMS – AN EXPERIENCE THROUGH MY SPIRITUAL INITIATION

I woke up this morning thinking about these three boys who are apart of this particular story. I had no idea why they were on my mind. Perhaps they came to visit me while I slept, although I have not the memory. However, often times, when one goes through a spiritual initiation they would have met many people on their journey who, whilst, not having a physical body, are now apart of their spiritual "team." The story below is when I was young spiritually and was on my very brutal journey of "initiation." When I became awake and set upon my path to eventually become who I am now as Obara Meji, this particular story proves to me that there is indeed no death as we know it, but the physical body sheds and the spirit is now born somewhere else. After I had this experience that you will read about below, I remember asking my pastor (at the time I was Christian) why did I experience that? And he said 4 simple words: "You are too kind." He never explained anything beyond having a secret smile and a gleam in his eyes as he looked at me, perhaps knowing something about me that he did not reveal back then. But I have come a long way from that naive neophyte who walked the realm of spirit as her body slept at nights, making many friends and allies who are still with me to this day. Please enjoy this story. ...

ROLES OF “LIGHT” AND “DARKNESS” WITHIN OUR CONSCIOUSNESS – BY AN ANONYMOUS BLOGGER

 It is said that the spirit of God lives in the heights of darkness. The Christian Bible says "in the beginning, the world was void and filled with darkness and God said let there be light and there was light." In the Odu's (life destiny codes) of the sacred scriptures of Ifa/Orisa of the Yoruba People of South Western Nigeria, there are the first two major Odu's: Obgbe, which is light, and Oyeku, which is darkness. Within the Chinese spiritual principle, which shows their philosophy on life and all within, we find the principle of Yin and Yang. Yin being light, and Yang being darkness. Every word spoken comes from thought. The thought which is darkness, produces words or actions, which is light. Keep in mind that each thought is within the consciousness of the mind, which is shrouded in darkness and is therefore brought into action after it's creation, either by speech or action. ...
