Obara Meji’s awakening first began when she was a child of 5 years old and had pebbles thrown at her from invisible sources, unusual vivid dreams, and was the only 5 year old in her community that would rather read a Star Newspaper than play hopscotch. Despite her mother’s dislike for her, Obara was fascinated by her mother as she was a very spiritual woman.
Years later, Obara learned that her mother was destined to be a Spiritualist but ran away from the duty for fear of judgement and criticism by the Christian community. The duty then landed on the shoulders of Obara Meji.
Obara’s awakening was often intense for a few years then would ease again for another few years. The second leg of her awakening had put her into a deep depression where she was prescribed drugs to ease the intensity (drugs that she did not take). The 3rd and last leg of her awakening was maddening. She had lost her ability to speak English, walk without assistance, lived on only liver water for iron, and would often fall into possessions that she could not control or be taken out of her body through Astral Traveling. It was during this intense and maddening period, or “Spiritual Schooling” that non-physical beings taught her all that she knows.
Obara Meji became the Leadress (female leader) of the Jamaican Spiritual Church ‘Zion/Revival’, had 3 spiritual mentors she honors to this day, and later settled comfortably into the Ifa/Orisha Tradition where she remains today, and where her name ‘Obara Meji’ was chosen.
After several horrific spiritual battles (which were also apart of her schooling) that threatened her life, the life of her children, and destroyed her relationships, Obara never thought she could have made it through her life with her sanity. But here she is today, sharing her experiences to the world and teaching metaphysics through the lessons of her own life.
A reading with Obara Meji uses Obara’s own personal oracle, or herself. These readings are often very very detailed and more personal, as the readings take place over the phone or (less often) in person. Solutions to problems can be given through Obara’s own work or recommendation, or (most often) through sacrifice by consulting the Ifa Oracle on the area of concern.
However, no, you do not have to do anything you do not want to do. There may be alternatives but that all depends on the situation and what it requires. In some situations, sacrifices are the best solution. In others, Obara may be able to assist in another way. But please note: Obara Meji is a teacher and she will most likely decide to teach you about spiritual work and how it works. As well as solving your problems, we believe you must have knowledge and understanding about spirituality!
