IFA- THE TRADITION OF SACRIFICE

  In the tradition of Ifa/Orisha the traditional practice of the Yoruba People of South Western Nigeria sacrifice is important, it is the most important of this tradition. The Yoruba's believes that with sacrifice all problems can be solved and it is through the consultation with Ifa that the solution is meted out.  Babalawos with whom I have spoken to in Nigeria have all told me the same thing, that sacrifice is the most important and that it must be performed immediately after divination is completed. Sacrifice is an offering made for a higher purpose. These offerings could be anything ranging from objects, food or the life/blood of an animal (s). OUR TRADITION DOES NOT,( IFA/ORISHA), INDULGE IN HUMAN SACRIFICE, NOR DOES ANY OTHER PRACTICE WHICH I HAVE BEEN PRIVY TO SEE HERE IN AFRICA!!! ...

OBEAH/WITCHCRAFT/VOODOO/JUJU! PART 2

One of my earliest post told the true story of Sharon and Donovan and the problems that plagued their lives through Obeah, read my post  Bad Sinting.  So many people say all the time, "I do not believe in those things"!, and while I agree that it is remarkable that people truly have the power or the access to power which can destroy, terrorize and harm others, it is nevertheless true, and very real. To destroy, terrorize and harm is only one side of the coin however, because on the flip side there is the power to heal, create balance, bring about peace, joy,prosperity and love!. there are two roads and it depends on which is chosen. It depends on the holder of the power, it depends on Character. Often times it is the simplest of things what produces the greatest results. To knowledgeable people, Salt can heal and it can destroy, also dirt, which is found everywhere can solve any problem and can also create the biggest ones. The woman holds so much power within her womb, but she does not know, and oonuh nuh waan har know because if she knows and decides to use it, God help the world, especially when PMS time!..What is greater than water, if you know how to use it? Eggs are not only delicious but if the magical uses are known even someone who believes themselves to be barren can bring forth twins....and never forget, Word, Sound, Power!!..Free your minds, let go off fear and learn, try to understand and pray for wisdom. ...
