Frustration

Hello everyone! I know it has been a long time since I have written a post. I have been extremely busy helping those in need (spiritually) and also busy battling wicked people, the kind who ‘came upon me to eat up my flesh, but in war I am always confident!’ One day I will write a post on the betrayal I have faced this year. When I sat with my elders here in Nigeria, I asked them, where in my Ifa (my destiny) does it show that I would be going through this. Immediately they began to chant a verse from my odu, which explains the reason and the benefits of my challenges. It was a hard pill to swallow, but the explanations made me realize that I had signed up for this.

There were times after I became initiated into this wonderful tradition (The Yoruba tradition), I wondered at some battles I faced. In my mind, Orisha was supposed to save me from those that seek to harm me or try to destroy me. I was a spiritualist (who first practiced Christianity for a while before I left the church where I found no love, as is supposed to be the root of the christian religion), before I came to Ifa, although I had first been a part of the tradition by way of Lucumi, this was because of my dear Padrino. I was never a Lucumi practitioner, but my dear Padrino was and he was one of my spiritual mentors. I know that I had taken the right steps at the time in my life, by becoming an initiate into the tradition, but what I did not realize, was that initiation had now made me even stronger, and by this I was now able and ready to face all the challenges in life that would mold me into who I was to become. Was I ready for the journey? I thought not, I did not even know that there was a journey coming, but there was and I had to face it, and so I did, I had no choice.

If I had been born a coward, (I wasn’t, mind you, I only said “if”) I was a coward no more. My strength and belief was tested and tried as I battled bigger enemies than the wicked baby father and his equally wicked women and family, or The wicked witch, and others that I have written about here over the years. My own God mother became one of my biggest enemies which resulted in her death eventually, (she went against what Ifa teaches). I was her charge, her spiritual child, yet she sought to kill me and for reasons known only to her (read here).

In everyone’s life there are phases we all have to go through. One cannot be spiritually strong without going through hard challenges, always remember this! As a matter of fact, the more challenges one face, the stronger they will become, how about that? I know, it is hard, and as you face life, especially alone and with no one there to assist you, you wonder at different times in your life where is God? Some even wonder, is there a God? I have never wondered this, the teachings of Christianity (Blasphemy) drove the fear of this question so far away that even now that I do not practice the religion, the fear of questioning God is still within, lol.

I know many of you at times wonder, when will all this end? And perhaps for some, it never will. But I challenge you to review your life and all that you have gone through and are still going through, are you the same person as you were before all the battles? Do you still think the same way as you did before? Have you learned from your experiences? Do you now recognize some people or situations that are not good for you before you fall victim again? Do you observe more? Do you introspect more? Do you pray more? Are you closer to your creator or have you now started to embrace your spirituality more? In all that you have been through and/or going through (like me) do you still have the strength to go on? Are you willing to teach from your experiences? Do you think others can learn or benefit from your pain and sorrows, as I have been sharing my own here on this blog, unfiltered?

If your mother has been you nemesis (some parents are, believe it or not) did it make you a better parent, or even more compassionate to others? If family treats you bad, does it make you yearn for a family of your own, one you can love and cherish, such as which you never had? Have you found your talent, your passion, from maltreatment you may have received on this life journey you are on? Are you able to love and be kind to others despite the challenges you have faced in life?

Often times,  only the strong ones, those who God knows can survive it, those who are healers, teachers, sages, counselors, artists, writers, storytellers, cultural perservers, etc are chosen to go through the worst of life, perhaps even in the beginning of their lives, only they are chosen to face these things, because of what they have to offer to the world as servants to humanity, teacher and comforters to humanity. We are all students and teachers alike. Some of us have been coming to this realm for a while now to help it elevate, and some, like myself, have volunteered to come back and teach. When we come in, all knowledge of who we are in the world from where we are coming from is left behind, and so to find ourselves and our mission, we have to go through struggles and challenges for us to do so. Believe it or not, the ones who suffer the wrath of family, are often times the strongest ones, and those who have volunteered in. If they have children, then their children are also apart of their soul group, (read here) and have also volunteered to come in to assist them in finding their path. It sounds complicated, but I will be writing about these topics more often for your better understanding.

You must, in your wisdom, know and understand that the betrayer/backstabber has his or her place in this world, no matter if he or she is cloaked with any earthly title i.e. Pastor, Imam, Babalawo, friend, mother, father, sister.

The wicked and evil man or woman who has challenged you in this life, has his or her place in this world, they are our teachers, and the ones who have been chosen to set us upon our new path or to open us up to the new phase of our lives. We may curse them, quarrel with them, hate them, I warn you however never lay a wicked finger against them, (cuss dem if you like, yuh ah human being although yuh learning this, but never harm them) as in (bad) obeah or any other diabolical means. Pray to God or whatever you believe in to remove them from your path. When you pray, hold your head (your Ori) on each side. Lament to your God about your obstacles, never single out a name, because even if you know the name of your enemy, there may be a greater one pulling his or her string that you may not know, so pray against “enemies” and to have victory against them.

The secret to life is prayer, but there is a certain way to get through and in the coming weeks I will be teaching you this.

I love you all

Why every post so far it’s like you’re speaking to my life. When I was younger I felt so much stronger to be able to withstand these test. Now I feel tired and these things upset me mirethan before. I wish I can go back to “I don’t give a …. Mentality”. It was so much easier

DREAM: (please read) As I was typing my other post I remembered a dream I had and want to share in here where hopefully people don’t just think it’s crazy, but it was weird. I had (attempted) sexual type sleep paralysis one night but that’s not what this is about. The following night I had a dream that I saw either a lot of ants or a shadow around some shirts in my room in the shape of a heart, and then I got a yucky big heart shaped rash on my back. Before that in the dream, just before… Read more »

This I know is true. Just so hard when you are in the fog and getting beaten. Thanks for the reminder. Been through the bad, and now the worse, but I know old people often say things get worse before they get better sometimes…

Trying to hold on; just me being alive feels like a miracle, but I look forward to sharing the wonders of God when I do get my “good” and breakthrough.

Glad to have you back in cyber world and wishing you the best and victory in your own trials. ES Family will overcome! Ase.

Thank you so much for the reply, Obara! I have read it today and will continue at the same time for the 9 days, and hopefully come back to share with the family the revelation or any change I notice or whisper to you. I also started fasting yesterday before I read this, so I am more motivated to keep it up as it was a spontaneous decision — wish me luck. Funny enough, having to read the psalm was the first thing that came to my mind at the time and I did it for the next 3/4 days,… Read more »

This post’s title is like it came straight from my own spirit, heart and mind, and own musings. I thought 2015 was a rough year, I really did. And I did what I could to try to if not fix at least improve things, clear/open paths etc: sacrifice, sea baths and home baths (remembering to always wet my head though I don’t normally if just for pleasure), psalms, plenty praying, in spirit, pages of written prayers, begging ancestors, even some fasting–which if you know me, you will know that is like cutting me off from my only ‘friend’ lol But… Read more »

Hi Nelle, I just wanted to say to hold on. Sometimes I feel like things happen in your life for a season. Just like hurricane season where it’s cloudy, gloomy, bare rain and storms is like the same in your life. I went through a season like that that lasted over 10 years (because I couldn’t find good spiritual help). But I tell you some lessons that I learn couldn’t have been taught in no damn book. Just make sure you do all that you can like you mentioned you have been doing. Keep the faith knowin that your season… Read more »

Trust me when you in the midst of the storm it’s hard to have a glimmer of hope. Problems mek you weak out bad. No energy, no life like not even your brain can function. But then you just have to pray and ask for strength cause if you don’t fight you’ll surely die….and I shall not die. Not anytime soon, not due to cowardice, not due to giving up.

Not always cowardice. Takes a lot of strength to give up. ‘Letting go is the hardest asana’ (sometimes)/

Hi Obara, welcome back! I missed your daily blog. You are right about how we need enemies to help us handle trials and tribulations. But as you have taught us in class, prayers and daily affirmations help to combat the evil the enemy tries to send. Thank you for the advice and lessons on enemies.
