Aboru Aboye to all my Ifa/Orisha Initiates and to all the people of the world I greet you all with the Yoruba word for peace, Alafia! The Former greeting is the way initiates of Ifa greet each other, while the latter, although in Yoruba language, is what I wish for you all, Peace. Not the peace that passeth all understanding which is death, but the peace of life, good health and of children, rest of mind, free from worries,war, destruction, ill health. It is the peace which comes with happiness, benevolence and filled with gratitude for what little or however much you have. Peace in brotherhood and sisterhood as how it should be, oneness, united as a race all over the world, Alafia my good people! I greet you all in the matchless name of Ifa Orunmila and of My mother Yeye (mother) Osun, Iyami, Iyalode! This morning I began to write a post and the world came up on top of my mind, and so I saved the post I had began writing and headed for a new page to write this one. People the world is in crisis, who am I kidding, it has always been. However this era, this time that we are in now, may be the worse of times and we need to pool all our energies together and pray for the world, and its inhabitants. I do not watch the news. I have never been a person to watch the news from ever since. The reason why I do not watch the news is because I know how energy work, and I do not allow any negativity, which the news is filled with to come through. There are many things happening all over they world, and bloodshed is everywhere. Other than constantly doing sacrifices all the time for balance, sacrifice is needed for all of humanity, like it or not, we must never allow one day to pass without prayer. Prayer by all is necessary.
We have to take the responsibility in saving the world. It sounds heavy but it really is not, if all people of the world would direct their energy, their thoughts, their prayers, their positive mind into the healing of the world and all things there, we would see the outcome and it would be more favorable than what is happening now. Recently in Saudi Arabia hundreds of Muslims were killed during the stoning the Devil ritual. Someone told one of my bloggers, that he went to make a sacrifice to mother earth and he asked the deity invoked, why that had to happen and the response was that it was a sacrifice to sustain a country as large and powerful as Saudi Arabia.There is something out there that is destructive. Religion calls it Satan or the Devil, I call it malevolent energies, live beings that were created by our divine source for destruction. Malevolent energies are invoked daily but human beings bad deeds, and dark minds. Whenever they are brought into being, they are constantly fed by said bad deed, bad actions, blood shed, pedophilia, sadistic acts, hate, discord, war and then some. They have the right to stay and create much havoc because humans in their ignorance makes them comfortable. A friend of mine told me today that he went to the Million man march, I was proud of him that he went, although I did not say so to him. As he spoke of the experience, I saw it, in my minds eye. That March in itself, with so many people attending with the same mindset (here is hoping that all were mentally together, as this is important), if this could be done all the time, with everybody’s mind and prayers on the same thing, nothing would be able to defeat the purpose.
Prayer is a connection to the divine, it is what we do when crisis arrives or threatens to come near. It is us, beseeching the help and assistance of a higher invisible power we know exist. A power we know is apart of us. A power which we call God.
There is need for us to use the power of prayer, coming together as one, here on this earth plane, praying for its continuance, for the sake of the future generation. The world had turned a corner, and has met up on stiff winds, Icy and cold, brutal to our psyche and harsh upon our bodies, wreaking havoc on us mentally, psychologically, emotionally. Many have removed love from their hearts and have replaced it with the love of money, gold, material things, and are willing to sacrifice others for it. There is no unity, and many may read this and say “there never was”, and this may be true, but there was a time when things were not as bad as it is today. There is no healing, only selfish actions, by world leaders and those who manipulate the world and its people through the power they “think” they have.
We (human beings) have the power, “real and true power”, to settle the world and send back the destructive forces invoked by humans to another place in the realm of time and space.
There is a particular vibration that passes through every Wednesday, it is too complicated to explain here, but if you trust me enough to listen and do, this is how we can all do our part in healing the earth through prayer.
Every day when you wake up, and do your daily prayer, please pray for the world and its citizens, but every Wednesday at the hour of 12, midday, please set your phone to alarm and at that moment, please say a prayer for the world, I will be doing it. It would be good for all who reads this blog and are willing participants to acknowledge their participation in whatever topic is up that Wednesday. All you have to comments is “I am In”, from this I will know that you have said your prayer.
Iron sharpeneth Iron and the countenance of one brightens the other. I urge you all to pray!
