Fire is mysterious. No one knows exactly where it comes from. Yes, rub two sticks or stones together and the friction (the force that resists motion between two surfaces) can create a spark which will cause fire, does that explain its origin? Friction is what creates the spark which produces the fire, but where does fire really come from? One day we will really explore fire from a spiritual perspective, hopefully we all will be able to have the conversation intellectually and spiritually. There are many topics I have been praying and hoping I can discuss on the blog, but…

Since the other day, I have been hooked on a Netflix original series called Travelers. One Sunday Night, when all had quieted down and I settled into my bed, I wanted something new to watch. Cable has a thousand channels here in Nigeria but nothing good to watch except food network, so I decided to go to trusty Netflix. I searched and found Travelers. The look of the characters advertised did not seem like vacationers to me, there was something eerie, out of place or to my taste there, so I checked it out to see what exactly was the series about. Here’s the…

Some time ago, I had written some stories here on Embracing Spirituality titled Beyond this World. I had written on two scenarios on the death experience, one where Lolly had died unexpectedly and ended up becoming an earthbound spirit, tied to the earth by the daughter she suddenly left behind and one where Jonah an old man who wished for death,wanting to go join his beloved wife. I opted to teach about the death experience as I was taught by my non-physicals, except I wanted to do so in story telling form because I believed it would have been easier…

There is a scripture in the bible which talks about Martha, the sister to Lazarus, finding Jesus in the town he had gone to. She was crying and urging him to come back because her brother Lazarus had died and was buried. She told Jesus she knew if he was there, Lazarus would not have died. She implored him to come with her right away so that he could bring Lazarus back alive. In this very scripture, John 11 verse 35, it says “Jesus wept.” When I practiced Christianity, this particular short verse of the bible had a very strong…

When I was a little girl growing up in Jamaica, there was a drunkard by the name of Mr. Fergie, a short little man with a crushed up face and head of white hair. He seemed old and his face surly. I, to this day, never remembered Mr. Fergie standing up straight. He was always drunk. His best friend was the good old Jamaican White Rum, J Wray and Nephew. There was also another drunk in my community who was a shoe maker, he was called Shoey. At nights when Shoey would stagger on his way home, the younger men…

Hello all, welcome to another set of classes offered by OMOU. This course will be a five weeks course on Metaphysics, teaching about frequencies and vibrations and how to access our spiritual gifts which we all have. Every human being born on the face of this Earth came in with more than 10 spiritual gifts which has been programmed within their inner psyche. Throughout time, many geniuses have been Earth’s inhabitants as far as the Kemetians, who are now known as Egyptians, and the wonders that they have left on that land that are still being studied, scrutinized and awed by the…

Today is a busy day for me. I am busy with spiritual work every day, but usually make the time to write a post as I am committed to doing so. Unfortunately today does nit give me the time but I will peep in now and again in between work, but for now I would like you to ponder on these words by L.W.De Laurence. I find it funny when I see how people react to De Laurence’s name, attributing everything his name is attached to as evil, fear is a no good son of a &*%#h. There are mountains…

Last night I sat in bed watching Gun Smoke, one of my favorite television shows to watch when I am in America. My alarm on my phone went off signalling that it was time for me to meditate. I do so twice per day. I paused the show and began to do my prayers and meditation, which always take me far. While meditating, I saw myself in a forest and surrounding me were some small black people who seemed oblivious to my presence. Where I was looked like those National Geographic Specials when they would show the Amazons and the…

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…

 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…
