THE JEWEL THAT IS CURIOSITY

(Image: Altria Senior Living) That old saying "curiosity kills the cat" may be true, but have you ever thought that curiosity could be a lead way to finding your destiny? That finding your purpose could be done by what interests you most, what fascinates you, even to what could be the detriment (hence the saying) of you or perhaps the betterment? Yes, curiosity can lead you to your own demise, but perhaps it was written by you that way. ...

OMOU UPDATE – THE OBEAH COURSE

Hello everyone. Beginning next week Saturday, OMOU will begin a new online course on Obeah. The course will be four weeks, after which will begin another course on African Spirituality where a list of topics will fall under. Obeah has a stigma attached to it. The very word drives fear into the hearts of many and is often associated with malevolence and wicked deeds. Many people say they do not believe, even though it may be playing out in their lives as they deny its existence. The denial is often due to ignorance of its reality, and some denials are purely defiance as they call it rubbish and the practice of illiterates; and some even mimic the saying, "believe kills and believe cures." ...

A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF TYING AND BINDING-AN EPIDEMIC IN EVERY CULTURE

Since I wrote the post the Symptoms of Tying, I have received tons of emails of people who are affected by it, (read here for one of my own personal stories, this one is of my father). For people who can read patois, (it is in patois straight through) read this one, it is also very personal to me, as a matter of fact this was the second post I ever wrote on my blog. Through out my postings here on Embracing Spirituality, I have sprinkled this act of Obeah into many of my posts. It is prevalent in ALL cultures and within all societies, and it does not even have to be lovers that do it to each other. A parent can bind a child unto him or her for control, friends in platonic relations can do this for their own reasons, making the person a slave to them and forcing loyalty. It is that serious because it does exist. People do it quite often and in a certain culture (do not ask me which one, I will not reveal it) mothers train their daughters to find good suitors and instruct them on what to do or what to take from them so that this person can be bound to them forever. Trick worse than obeah is a post which I can actually say now, that I was tricked and tied up by the man's parents. I was innocent to the fact, but because I am no ordinary human being, my non-physicals set me free. There was once a church I attended that the mother, you can find her here, (I have really written a lot of posts, imagine that? and I can not type, oonuh clap mi!) tied up all her attendees. I think I wrote that story here, but I cannot remember the title of the post. They cleaned her house, washed her clothes, did all her bidding. I exposed her unintentionally by me, but intentionally through spirit, and there began one of the greatest spiritual fights of my life, read it a part of it here. ...

STRANGERS AMONG US

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 premise by IMBD: Hundreds of years from now, surviving humans discover how to send consciousness back through time, into people of the 21st century, while attempting to save humanity from a terrible future. Now this is television, so of course they will make it spectacular and go over board for it to become a hit series, but that is not the point of this post, gimme a second and I will get to it. Several years ago, I had a weird experience that has settled in the bottom of my mind for years. The experience was so real that at times I question my own reality as it plays out daily here in this earth realm. Listen, if after reading this you think that a straight jacket and a padded room is needed for me, don't worry, I have had it sitting (white bedazzled and blinged out) in my closet for years and I am building the padded room as an extention on my property. Never judge, just learn! ...

TRICKS ARE WORSE THAN OBEAH

When I used to attend a Zion Revival church in New York, the Pastor for the church was a man in his sixties I  believe, and a very great seer. I have witnessed many miracles performed in the church and his prophecies were always on point. His wife was friends with all the young girls in the church, but she disliked the older women because she thought that they were all after her husband. I suspect that it might have been true. There were many times after church that we had to hold her back from fighting Miss Samuel and Sister Dorrett when she thought that they had pretended to be in the spirit and had willfully stepped on her feet, and I believe that she was right in her suspicion. She used to stop the service in the middle of testimony sometimes and take the mic from who ever was testifying and curse all who she suspected of having intimate relations with the Pastor, much to the embarrassment of her children and her husband. To us it was funny, so we never missed a service. The Pastor took a liking to me, he said that he admired my dedication to church and how helpful I was. ...

16 WAYS TO KNOW WHEN BAD ENERGY IS PASSING THROUGH YOUR HOME

A few nights ago while the night darkened and I did my nightly habits before going to bed; such as making sure the kitchen was clean, straightening up the house, washing my face and moisturizing, putting up the cows in the barn, injecting the horses, leaving out food for the night bats, giving the lawn one last mow, fluffing the news paper the chickens were sleeping on, leaving out the night lights and snacks for the aliens who visits nightly and more, I noticed a tightness in the air. Although I was tired, I had a feeling of being tense and alert, and I could not figure out where this feeling was coming from. After brushing grandma's dentures and setting them out to dry, I climbed the stairs to my room and went to shower. While in the shower, I felt my mind drift, but on what I was not certain. Somehow I felt slightly detached from my body, almost as if I had stepped outside of me, watching me stand under the shower, everything seemed to be moving in slow motion, except my mind. ...

DE PENTECOSTAL OBEAH WORKER

Yesterday I received a call from a client of mine. Someone she had helped two years ago was cross with her and had put their "I'm Pentecostal!" Aunty on the phone to pull down judgement on someone who they believed had offended the big woman neice. The story goes like this: The lady was thrown out of her house two and a half years ago by her biological father. She was pregnant with no where to go, baby daddy jump ship and run gone. Her siblings and the rest of the family, including the judgement calling down aunty refused to help her, so my client gave her a place to stay in her house, in an apartment that was empty. The offer was temporary and her stay was for free. My client's family was against her assisting the woman, they argued that it must be a reason her father threw her out pregnant and also why no other blood relative wanted her to live with them. Fi wi Jamaican people first thought was that this gal yah ah crosses (bad luck), but my client's soft heart got the best of her and I do understand because perhaps I would have done the same thing,  to take in and care for someone pregnant with no where to go, I have done this in the past before, that is another story I will write one day. ...

WHO DID IT AND WHY? WHEN JEALOUSY TURNS TO OBEAH

A few days ago I was sent an email from a young lady about her mother and what she went through and also how it affected the children. In the email, she had two questions: Who did this terrible thing to her mother? And what caused it? ...

ONE MAN’S TALE OF OBEAH AND HIS JOURNEY TO HEALING

When I wrote the post Who Do You Trust In This World? I told you all that the person for whom this happened to would send his own post in. I'm very happy that he did so because my philosophy as you all know is that we teach each other from our experiences. His is quite a journey and although there will be a part 2 to his story, he still had to carve the story down in order for it not to be too lengthy. People be wise and as I always teach, be present in your lives. ...

WHO DO YOU TRUST IN THIS WORLD?

The lessons of karma are so much often repeated that many people just take it at face value and not as something real. The law of causation (cause and effect) is real and must be taken seriously. Spirituality needs to be taught in schools, or as parents, we must take up the responsibility to teach our children that the world we all live in is alive and pulsating. There are forces that protects us and forces which are here to harm us or create encumbrances to block our way. These forces are necessary for our evolution both malevolent ones and benevolent ones. Christianity has created the Devil or Satan (a singular being with minions at hand) to represent the malevolent forces I speak of here albeit they erroneously teach that these forces are but one single entity, who once was an angel named Lucifer. Perhaps I should not be critical of these teachings and learn to understand that this may have been a crafty way the religion figured they could teach their followers about forces of good and evil (making them singular entities with human emotions). Yeah, that's it, perhaps! (light bulb moment for me here, let me take a minute to sink this in). ...
