Aboru Aboye Abosise! I greet you all in the traditional Ifa initiate greeting. Today I want to share with you a story. This story is from the sacred “scriptures” of Ifa; specifically from the Odu Ifa nicknamed Ogbe/Sa or otherwise called Ogbe (ug-beh) Osa (Oh-Sah). What is an Odu? An odu is a live energy. Everyone on earth has an odu they were born with. That live energy tells your life destiny on this earth. I suppose it can be likened to the Astrologers way of determining someone’s chart based on how the planets are aligned at the time of your birth….

Hello all. In the navigation section of the blog, you’ll find that I have some book picks for you all. Reading is important, it’s my favourite thing to do. I should have been born in a library. I love to share what I believe will help others, and so today I have decided to list 6 books that I believe can assist those of you who are on a spiritual path or those wanting to know. I’d like to make it clear that the books I am recommending will vary in beliefs, religion, or philosophy. I believe that there is…

I had written the part 1 of Generational curses and posted it read here, but prior to that post I had already written this story. I did so in an attempt to show you all one way how this thing can affect a person/families  through their lineage. There are many circumstances, but to write on them all would be too much for me, and also the audience here is slightly non-responsive, mostly preferring to email me instead of dialoguing on the post itself, they may be shy. I had kept it in draft, turned off from posting this second part,…

I gave somebody a reading once, and as soon as I opened the oracle the words that came to me to tell her was: “the spirit says you feel like a bird perched upon a thin wire.” I must admit that in that moment as the words came from my mouth, I had no idea what it meant. I did not know why the spirit would tell her that and I was somewhat puzzled by their use of language as immediately a small bird perched upon a high wire flashed through my mind. As I told her this, she seemed…

There was a time when I was younger that I allowed my imagination to shield me from the harsh realities of life, or to breathe happiness within my mind. It was an escape when I did not want to pay attention in class, or while I did my chores, even to conjure friends I didn’t have. My imagination was wild and vivid, (this makes for a very creative person) so I traveled the world in my mind, experienced many things in my mind, was anyone I wanted to be in my mind, and it was comforting. The power of thought…

Last night I was tired of binge watching old episodes of Gun Smoke (huge crush on Matt Dillon the Marshall), so I decided to go through some of my older posts and read them over. I must say sometimes my own stories fascinates me. I made sure to stay away from the ones that would conjure up some bad memories, after binging on Matt Dillon for days now my mood is quite good, happy. I came upon this post and after reading it, I was still wowed by this anonymous story. When I re-read the post last night, I had…

There are many families affected by generational curses. Often times many may wonder why their lives and the lives of their families goes a certain way, not knowing or realizing that there is a curse within the family. Unlike what many people think, it isn’t always someone being upset at another and cursing them with a bitter tongue, (this power in rare in most humans but it is very real among others) and is more potent at a certain time in a person’s life, unless aided by Obeah/witchcraft done well. But did you know that generational curses can connect even without the…

I have encounterd many spirits so far in my lifetime. I have seen them, felt them, communicated with them, danced with them (Zion revival/ Traditional initiations), fight with them, and even heard them speak. Jamaica full ah duppy more dan Africa. Let me rectify that statement. Here in Yorubaland it is never good for people to see the spirit of the dead, neither physically nor within your dreams; the dead has no business with the living they would say. For if you do see them, it means that that spirit has not gone off to their next life or that someone (an…

I have never written a post here wishing anyone Happy Mother’s Day as titled above, mostly because I am usually busy and the day escapes me, since it is not celebrated here in Africa. What is celebrated here is Childrens day. Africans loves to have many children around them, they cherish the idea of birth, children and family, I must applaud them for this. I have received some mother’s day messages from a few, and I answered in return. I had a rough night last night, and because of this I slept later than usual. I always chide myself when…

I laid upon my bed on my back, the ear phone pugged into my computer, listening to Lana del Rey, one of my favorite artist. A playlist with some of my favorite music by her hauntingly appealing voice serenades me. Summertime Sadness, followed by Born to Die, then Video Games, after which Blue jeans began to play. I suddenly paused her and came to my dashboard to write. I am spontaneous like that, have always been. they say it is an Aries trait, and that I am. There is something about Lana’s music that makes you (perhaps me alone, but…
