Obara’s Book Picks

    • Good morning SeaQueen lol I like your name. Makes me think of mermaids. We finally got some books. Maybe we all can share books that we have read or intend to read with each other. Just a thought..

  • Wow! ooooooieee this gives me lifeeeeeeee! I love to read and greatly appreciate you sharing these great books with me! Thank you Obara “reada woman” “Chin” Meji loooooool

  • His books on ifisims are great he wrote many on each odu’s and funny enough the first one I boubefore I became an initiate was the odu’s of Obara not knowing back then that I was Obara Meji you see how our ori works? Yoruba people, or African Christians do not know the beauty of what they have (Their traditional practice) and they have cast it away for foreign religion. They are more enslaved more that the ines who went through the Africa halocast. I did not mention his books here, I wondered if it would have been too ad an we for some but when I come back again perhaps I will. .Thanksgivings so much Lola.

    • That’s profound – Your above comment on Odu’s of Obara and later finding out you are Obara Meji. I have alot more to learn, and definitely playing a key role in my spiritual development. Thanks for connecting as per usual. You’re appreciated.

  • Congratulations to you Obara Meji again. I’m elated that embracing spirituality is ranked among the top 50 spiritual blogs. It must be a great feeling that you are reaching millions & making impact online. Then getting recognised for it must be very encouraging that your labour of love is producing results & highly regarded. Oceans of massive positive Peace and love from the universe.

    • I worke up one morning to the email the badge and the congratulatory email, I had no idea that such a website existed. They told me to hang the medal in my site, I was slightly reluctant, slightly embarrassed, not wanting anyone to think that I was as Jamaicans say “frightened”, my people love to criticize. Then I thought of the horrible year which was 2016, and the amount of times I cried and told myself that this was indeed an achievement, why no enjoy it l. Actually I am number 27 with in the top 50, So I am in the top 30 to which they have that category, next year I will be number 1 lol.

  • Congratulations to you Obara Meji on the publication of your upcoming book of stories. Thanks for sharing the book list mostly my book collection has been on personal development, self improvement and generally the books authored by Christian Pastors. The zeal to walk a spiritual path has always been a part of me but in the context of Christian practices due to my upbringing but I was hungry and never satisfied. I recall being sad and depressed as a result of job loss when the last office post i held was made redundant. Shortly after I attended a day gathering called the ‘awakening’ which i had put of attending due to work commitments in the past. The host addressed a room full of people from different religious & non religious background but the message emitting through her to me is that even if one is mentally, emotionally and physically sound – being connected to Divine Spirit was utmost. The was the turning point…..my journey to unlearn and relearn: the first book i stumbled across to help me on my journey to connect is called Ancestors Path by Aladokun and I was drawn to understanding Ifa for the first time after a brief encounter with Author of Ifism Osamaro Ibie’s son in 2004 (he shared with me 2 mystical stories living with his dad, other people around laughed it off but I was intrigued). I loosely and generally read up majority of my information online but i’mma invest in more books from the above list. It’s funny that when I mention to my yoruba friends that I’m reading about Ifa system for understanding purpose, they generally advice me to not get involved without any rationale or one person stopped talking to me altogether.
