NATURE SERIES: WATER PEOPLE – THEY WALK AMONG US AND THEY’RE REAL

There are so many mysteries here in this earth realm and about our lives in which we live. Many of us have no idea of water people or other dimensions or other realities. Many of us are so caught up with trying to get through life and it’s encumbrances. Survival for most of us is what is on the mind, some finding it difficult here and others play it a day at a time. I have always known somewhere from deep within, that although I was human, I was different.

I was born on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, (beautiful oceans, clean lush rivers, hauntingly deep blue mysterious looking lagoons), I can not say it often enough, and that is Jamaica. In Jamaica, up to the very air communicates with you because within it the smells of the Caribbean sea intermingles… or perhaps it was just with me. Perhaps I had a heightened state of consciousness way before I realised this was so. I was born on an Island, but it would be later that I would find out that I came from the world of water.

The topic at hand is about Water people and I’ll be doing a series of posts this week on people who inhabit the earth but are from different realms within the space and time continuum. Realms that are “simulations” of aspects of nature. I will explain this another time.

There was once I heard a story of a woman from an African country, I forget which, who was about to be married. All preparations were made and the day had come. Her husband-to-be was already at the venue and she was to come along afterwards. But her family could not find her, and when asking her attendants where she was, they were told that sometime while getting dressed, she had went to the river. Everyone rushed to the river but they found no trace of her. She couldn’t be found anywhere.

After perhaps months or years (I’ve forgotten) had gone by, the woman was found wandering, lost. Someone recognized her and she was reunited with her family. It took some weeks, perhaps, before all involved could hear from her what had occurred. Apparently that afternoon, she had indeed went to the river, but for some reason found herself in a different town. The dirt was red, like rural Jamaica, or some places in Africa, and people milled about doing chores just like they did in her village. At first, she wondered where she was and how did she get here?

She looked and dressed differently from everyone else who, she said, wore “ancient attire”. Someone, a woman, perhaps, came upon her and took her to a place where a thickly built light complexioned woman sat. She was dressed in full black, her head wrapped and all. The woman had a round face and piercing black eyes; she had a stern look. When the young lady was brought before her, she spoke in a different language to the ones who had brought her before the woman, and she sounded upset. The woman said that the woman in black began to speak to her, although she only heard her through her thoughts. 

“You’re not the one that is supposed to be here,” she said. “It is your mother that we sent for. She has not been doing what she is supposed to do there where you all live, and so she was sent to be brought back home.”

The young lady was confused about all of this and very afraid, all the while wondering if she was dead, and this was Heaven. She had all thoughts and memory of the life she just left, because this encounter seemed like only minutes had passed. Meanwhile, in her world, days and weeks were flying by.

The woman, still seemingly angry, continued. “Now that you are here, albeit mistakenly, you will have to stay and work. Do your part until I decide if I will allow you to go back. But if you indeed go back, something else will have to happen.”

The young lady said she became apart of this community and worked like everyone else did. In that place where she was, everybody worked everyday. In her conscious mind, she could think as how she did when she was on Earth, she now realised she was not in the Earth realm anymore, and was actually told by the woman when she was in front of her that she was at the very bottom of the river.

Yet, there was no water. And the Sun was as hot as it was in the Earth realm.

There came a time (she had no idea when or how long she was there) when she was told that she would be going back soon, but then her family line had to pay for what had not been paid for very long. That was when she went to sleep and woke up by the river side, dazed and tired. She felt as if she had been walking for weeks.

While she related the story, her mother along with other family members cried. The mother, especially, seemed to understand what had happened to her daughter. It was not long after that that the mother died. But before she did, she told them that she had to go because she had neglected her duties here with the world that she came from, and because of that her daughter had to pay the price.

Now this story, I’m told, is a true one. I may not have related it the exact way it was told to me, but the whole idea is there. It was obvious that this was an alternate reality. Another dimension that this young lady had stepped into and before I explain all of this, let me give you my own story….

There was a time when I, too, found myself at the bottom of the river. This was not a dream, this was an experience. I had no idea then that I was from the water, most especially the river. I was in a room that had a gurney. 3 women were there. They wore long gowns, and had eyes that were black with not much if any white showing and looked like that of fishes, they looked like (their complexion) the indigenous people Columbus claimed to have met when he supposedly discovered Jamaica .

All around us were silver drawers, like a mortuary. The room was clinical in it’s look; spotless and antiseptic. I wondered as I laid on the gurney what was I doing here? I was aware that I was present there. This was not a dream. One of the women came over to me and told me that she would have to stick a needle in the pupils of my eyes so that I would not be able to see what all that I would encounter during my visit. Or else I would not be able to leave.

After the needle was stuck into both of my eyes, I didn’t feel anything but my eyes became glazed. Everything was extremely foggy, but I could make out shapes and forms. But nothing else was clear.

Then a lot happened.

I could feel the dampness, which was on the outside of the room, but the room itself was dry. Although I wasn’t afraid, I wanted to be. I thought I should be. After some time, I was released. To this day, I know most of what happened but I’ve never entirely shared everything. Yet, I knew that I had visited home.

There are some people here that belongs to water; whether river, pond, lake, lagoon or ocean. And they are indeed identifiable by knowledgeable elders, such as I or others, who will know the physical signs that they have or the character that they display.

Many of them have no idea, and when I see them or even when I speak to them (some of you bloggers), I smile inwardly because I recognize who you are. I will tell you one or two of the physical marks that water people have. But this is just a small amount compared to the many I could share, but I find that those here are not ready for the depths of this argument as yet.

Physical Marks of Water People (Sweet Waters)

  • Water People are often with moles, beauty marks, or freckles on their face or other parts of their bodies. Most often the moles/beauty marks are small ones. However, some can get big but when they grow big they will eventually fall off. (Please don’t mistake moles for warts).
  • People who have clear full eyes (not bulging), which may be the first thing someone compliments them on as they see them.
  • Water People also tend to have good skin (nuh spotty groupy or bump up) but can be plagued with boils at times (…and there’s a reason for this).
  • Most often you will find the ones who are slender, with beautiful elongated necks. These are usually people from the river, or from waters without salt.
  • There is a firmness and strength that emits from them, regardless if they are quiet or naturally aggressive.

Characteristics of Water People (Sweet Waters)

  • They are clean and usually love white, and everything white.
  • Most of them are soft spoken or gentle in their character. (Let me just tell you that there is another part to this. I am from the water, but the part of the water that I am from is where the water falls the heaviest, so therefore, my personality is strong and assertive, and my voice caries this over).
  • They like to dress well and are very fashionable. (Dem nuh chuh an’ galang)
  • Something about them emits beauty, even if they are not physically beautiful.
  • They are absolutely creative. You will find water people mostly in the arts; whether it’s theatre or otherwise.
  • They are resourceful and most often, very loving, comforting, and compassionate. No matter how aggressive one might be on the outside.
  • There are some who love the water and oddly enough, there are some who has an unexplainable fear water or the surroundings. I used to feel a dread when ever I was near water, or sometimes even beneath the spray of the shower. These are the ones who are old spiritually. But remember the woman in the story above went into the proverbial rabbit hole and found herself in a different dimension. I think this explains my fear.

In the Yoruba tradition of Ifa/Orisa, water people, especially those from the river are Osun people (to she I am initiated – see archetypes of osun here). She is also known as Mami Wata or Yemoja (Yemoja is actually a river deity, but in the diaspora she is venerated at the Ocean and she accepts), these are from the saltwater or ocean, description not given above. The Erzulie’s in Voudon from Haiti. Lakshmi from the Hindu’s. Quan Yin from the Chinese. Aphrodite from the Greeks, and a lot more.

I should mention that although Orisa Osun is the deity of the river, she is not found at all rivers. There are some rivers which male deities are the proprietors of. You ought to know that although Osun’s name is most popular and perhaps the head deity when it comes to sweet water, there are millions of deities such as her in the same waters. Their place here in this earth realm is very important, as so is others who come from the realms of fire and otherwise, which I will be dealing with in posts to come.

I came to realise that tbere is something significant about a body of water a couple years ago. Someone had wronged me terribly, and after I left work one evening I went and sat by the ocean and I cried and I prayed. Though a religious Christian at the time, I was led here. And something…..not to sound crazy and all….but it’s like a voice said to me, “what do you want?” And I said justice. I saw the body of the water get rough, and it spoke to me as I cried. I remember speaking to it audibly, and I said “in 3 days I need to see results, and believe that I’m not just a tortured soul sitting by the sea.” Within 3 days there was justice.
I’m scared of water on a normal day, since I can’t swim. But whenever I was troubled and I had access to it, I would go sit by the sea, meditate, and speak with it.
I always loved the sea, even from back home in JA. It was a place I could bring my worries and pain, and knew they would be resolved. I just hadn’t the knowledge that Ms. Obara is teaching us.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge, wisdom and gifts with us Obara. Please keep encouraged to continue assist us in becoming awoke.

I just recently received divination and Odi Ofun was casted. It was so re-affirming, because my Great Grandmother was a Christian, but she personified Yemaya in her most highest form. All I ever wanted to be is like my Great Grandmother. Plus, she had a mole on her nose which genetically passed down to all of the women in my family. I have one in the middle of my chin, which really stands out. It wasn’t until recently that I found out that my birth name is actually that of a Fulani/Hausa deity that corresponds with Mami Wata. All of this information is just SO confirming! Lol!

You’re experience with the 3 fish women has me envisioning so much, Obara. Being that you said they looked like the natives that Columbus encountered, were they dark skin with thick, black hair? What did the original natives of JA look like? They try to paint a picture like all of the Tainos in the Caribbean looked the same on each island, but I feel like it’s propaganda.

And I also read in a book that there is a Yoruban belief that children born with curly hair have a connection to the water and the water spirits. And that they are children of Olokun. Have you ever heard of that?

[…] – whew!! She was something else. I have been taken to places in the bottom of the ocean (read this post) and in the celestial heavens, I am no ordinary person. God loves me special and this is my thought […]

I’m late on this, but Obara your description of people from the water Is really interesting and amazing. I’ve always loved and been attracted white. My colors are actually white and purple. But for things I’ve purchased…My vehicles have been white. If I could wear white more often I would. I love the water for its peace and tranquility but can’t swim… I’m like a rock in water. Lol. But I live near water and I love it! I don’t have full eyes, they are rather small, but have always been complimented on it… Being told …”They look ‘dreamy’. And I love fashion and the Arts. Amazing!!!!!! Question do people of the water have issues with their stomach?

Blessed, everyone!
This post is quite interesting. I think I might be a water child as well and especially because I am a Cancerian, water is already my sign. I don’t know if this is relevant in any way but I just have a feeling…

Great knowledge…opening my mind too so much more than what my eyes see. Obara van you share with me my realm. I honestly believe it to be water. I have even shared my dream of being under water on ES. I am also at great peace in the ocean or river, water in general. I am an earth astrological sign and I am a child of Sango. I know you have told us we can have more than 1 Orisha rule our head. Cam we be from 2 realms?

Re: simulations of nature could it be talking Plato’s theory of forms? Basically this is wherethe world of forms is the spiritual world where everything is absolute and the world we are living in is the material world where everything is an imitation striving to be complete. Plato said that every soul come the world of forms but when born in this world the soul forgets everything.
Could this then mean that once an individual has truly awaken to this revelation then that could mean that they have the power to manifest their thoughts in this world with great ease.

“Realms that are “simulations” of aspects of nature. “
I think this means that other realms are arranged just the same as it is here on this earth realm. They have people,the environment and daily activities. The language or location may be different but the “life experience ” is similar.

Questions:

1a. How important/necessary is it for one to identify/venerate one’s element (in the case water) – whats the correct term?
1b. How do you find out who you are or what you should do?

2a. Do the beings (not sure if I should say human) in other realms always have greater power than we do? 2b. Can I summon someone and keep them on the earth realm for years?

3.How can one avoid/prevent being captured? I wouldnt mind if
I could guarantee a luxurious experience, mi nah guh back a no country area or village

There are moments when I get the urge to go to the river (not the beach)- those close to me know. Out of the blue I’ll keep repeating it, “I need to go to a river” Now mi a ketch mi fraid. I hardly ever do it, mi belly battam a tighten, an mi yai fullup a wata ya now!

Mi get up back outta mi sleep because the answer to the question you asked kept bothering me…and I noticed you didn’t tell me how wrong my answer was lol!
The realms simulating aspects of nature is simply this….water, fire etc there are key elements in nature and they govern in other realms. Hence fire is simulated in the realm frequently referred to as hell ( I don’t think there is fire blazing forever there – just as how there was no water in the realm of the bottom of the sea. Am I getting closer?

OBARA!!!!!!!
Idk what I’ve stumbled upon but this post here…..lawd it touch

I used to work by a bar back in the by the sea. I was bartending at that time so I usually held conversations with all types of people, I didn’t mind listening and learning since that’s…well our purpose here. I had a conversation with an ex-president Mason who shared the same last name as I, he is probably relative for all I know. But we shared a deep conversation…I talked to him about the books and was reading and he said he could tell I was a sister that did not belong where I was. He motivated me to get another job which I did eventually…dealing with rude drunk people ain’t easy….but I specifically remember him telling that I should trace my roots (we both shared the same last name and thing) and that I looked I’m from the Yoruba tribe. He did mention something water, I think a friend of his was an initiate of something. Now reading the post makes me think of myself…

I can relate to this topic
1. My mother loves the beach! Her interior decoration was often with shells, starfishes, sea horses things of that nature. I recently purchased a sea themed bracelet with all the sea charms and she loved it
2. I love the beach as well. I recently had bad bad bad bad cramps and my friend suggested we cool by the beach. Once I got there and laid down they stopped. The atmosphere comforted me at once.
3. I have a small whole near my eye. From young they told me I could never drown because of this hole.
4. I’m slender in shape. And fashion??? They call me sharp gyal from mi touch di road…..

This is a topic I will investigate further because I feel like i’m finding a piece to a puzzle.

It would be interesting to learn more about the fire people. Are they compatible with water?

Give thanks again Obara

Good day all! Mums, let me start by saying today’s read was EXCELLENT. I’m so happy you are getting to the topics you have “saved for later” lol. What you mean by simulations of Nature in the realms is that what is pictured is not actually real but a facade used for test purposes. For example, a person pictures themself in the forest surrounded by nature, trees, birds, squirrels, etc. But in all actuality they are in an empty white room. Similar to the like the matrix. Mums are you trying to say our lives on this realm are “simulations if nature?” Another thing, I remember reading a similar story on here a couple years ago about the young man in Jamaica, Zion, who went by the river only to come back years later a powerful obeah man. Would you say Zion and this young lady went to the same place, and they wee both water peopl.

Me teacha!!!!!Hand raised lol
simulation is used to describe a system operating on this plane by the OTHERS who uses it to affect spiritual choices of each individual on Earth without violating their free will.

the OTHERS live among us everyday and behave just like terrestial humans do BUT they are here to help us on a specific path ..

Teacher I get a Ticky or wrong bang LOL ?

I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
Very nice Ms. Obara. I had to tune in to this one and write something. Yes, there are other dimensions within this realm of our known existence. I agree, there are water people, air people, earth people and fire people. Each distinct and yet collective. What is beautiful about water is its presence of the dark matter that exist in all of us. Water, was present prior to creation. Here, we see the birth of the OPON and OYEKU. Or at least in my perception.
I never met my great grandmother. I was told that every day at 5 am, she would leave from her house and go to the sea and bathe. She did this ritualistically until her death in her 70’s. I believe that it was the sea that gave her the blessings and energy needed to pound her cassava, make her bammi, fry fish, and everything else by 8am everyday then open the shop and sell it to people. She was so blessed and prospered in the time of the great depression.
When you speak of simulations I reason it to mean parallel universes’ and the nature of order akin to that existence. The topic is vast and broad and complex to a degree; as one of the principles of the universe is duality. 99% of our existence on this physical plane is one of perceived reality or are simulating our experience? Whereas, 1% is actual. A total representative of the one, the all, truth. So, presently yes it is real. But not real truth. Water is the ultimate form of the exerted force and although first, became second because of needed structure.There must always be a substantial reality, this is the law of the universe. Whatever world you exist in, it is your mirror. Jesus took his disciples and crowd to a world of altered existence when he fed them with the 5 loaves and 2 fish by the sea. Understanding.

Hello All,
What comes to mind when I hear” simulations
of nature” is how the Great Spirit manifests itself through nature at all times and it depends on which realm you currently reside how you will interpret that data , since the energies on different realms have different degrees of denseness or none at all. ??

This is genuinely interesting to read and being from the islands myself I love the ocean ever since i was little (though for a while i was afraid of water touching my face, even while washing my hair) . Though i couldn’t swim at the time, i’d spend ages there and hated pools because of chlorinated water though I’m curious about one thing that is most likely nothing but since i’ve moved to north america, it’s almost as if my body can’t cope. I’m sick more often no matter how much i go to the doctor they claim I’m fine, i never had acne before, but got so many bumps and new allergies to foods i hadn’t been allergic too. Pool water feels stiffling but it’s the only water body i have access to now, however when i went to Costa rica on a school trip. My skin cleared up, my health stabilized and no one could take me out of the ocean lololol , it’s most likely nothing but even now studying my body always feels drained *music from home often gives me energy boosts but generally always feeling exhausted* and others have noticed this, as my older brother (whose not spiritual at all) cried because i had looked really weak and sick despite doctors telling me i was fine. I don’t really know , i’ve been joking to my mom maybe I in withdrawal from home but i dunno,
