Welcome To Blue Water Family

Blue Water Family acknowledges each of the Equinox and Solstice transits during the year. We do this in order to remind one and all of the connection between Humanity and Nature.

The Dogon of Mali West Africa, describe the change of season based on the position in the heavens.

The Sun of the north refers to the trajectory of the sun’s path, reaching the highest point high in the sky. In the Uk this will give us the longest day of the year, during our Summer Season. The Sun of the middle refers to the trajectory of the sun’s path, reaching the middle position in the heavens. In the UK and everywhere else on earth, this will give us equal day and equal night time hours twice a year, in March and in September, Spring and Autumn respectively. The Sun of the South refers to the trajectory of the Sun’s path, making its shortest journey low in the heavens, from east to west giving us here in the UK the shortest day of the year, during our Winter Season.

In astronomy The zenith is the “highest” point on the celestial sphere.

In astronomy, the meridian is the great circle passing through the celestial poles, the zenith, and the nadir (point directly below the zenith) of an observer’s location.

What Are You Thinking?

4 Jan

In the West African Spiritual Practice of Ifa Orisa, as with many other examples across the continent, there are three important pillars of the faith: inner spirit, ancestral reverence and the spirits of nature. All three are regularly called upon to assist with decision making, when devotees and initiates consult the oracle with the assistance of trained priests and priestesses. In the West, this is the task of the personal development life coach, the design thinking content creator and various other journey guide services. However you first have to acknowledge that you need help. This is the first step in the process, of reflecting on where your mind wonders to, when left to its own devices.

The thoughts which are whirling around in your head, will lead you in one direction or the other. If you are ‘a wondering generality‘, you will choose pot luck. If on the other hand you are ‘a meaningful specific’, you will clear a path and start a journey with purpose. Which is it to be?

Thank You 2020 Halo New Earth #3

1 Jan

As an Independent Researcher into indigenous nature spirituality in general and African indigenous knowledge in particular, I am grateful for all that I continue to learn, from the gentle power of the natural world. If the past 12 months have taught us anything at all, it is the importance of self reflection. Developing your power of thought, is the most important exercise you could engage in at this time. Remember if you don’t use it, it will atrophy.

Whilst doing one of my time and space reconnaissance, it occurred to me that, its the simple things in life, that will help us to navigate to dry land, during this quantum hurricane season. And the safest place to be right now, is in the safety of your wise-mind. The free webinar is no longer available.

Thank You 2020 Halo New Earth #2

1 Dec

Look out for the upcoming Webinar to Celebrate 10 years of community engagement and what we can look forward to in the new earth…

Well done for making it so far. What a journey… and the changes have just begun. Some have called it the quickening, the eternal struggle between the forces of good and evil, as you may be aware of through the Highlander series.

In the West African Orisa tradition, the supernatural world is heavily populated with the good forces on the right known as the Orisa, the evil forces on the left known as Ajogun and the neutral forces in the middle known as Oludumare and Esu, as articulated by Ifa priest Baba Kola Abimbola of Ifa University. And we give thanks to all our teachers.

Thank you to our sponsors, supporters and members. Please feel free to follow us here at bluewaterfmaily.blog. to get updates when we release new content.

Ire o (pronounced “E-ray-O”) Blessings to you and your family.

Your location above or below the equator, will give you Spring or Autumn respectively.

Remember to Keep your vibration high and stay connected to those who are resonating in harmony with nature.

Seasons Greetings To You And Your Loved Ones.

Do All Living Things Have A Soul?

17 Sep
key words
Animism is the belief that objects, places, and creatures all possess a distinct spiritual essence. Potentially, animism perceives all things—animals, plants, rocks, rivers, weather systems, human handiwork, and perhaps even words—as animated and alive. Source: wikipedia [accessed 16-9-20]
The Collective unconscious refers to structures of the unconscious mind which are shared among beings of the same species. It is a term coined by Carl Jung. Source: wikipedia [accessed 16-9-20]
In the West African Yoruba tradition (and others across the continent), in simple terms, humans, animals and plans are all considered to be ‘persons’. This is not a unique belief amongst the religions of African Spirituality: Japanese Shintoism and Shamanic practices globally, hold similar beliefs. Carl Jung would perhaps site this phenomenon, as what he called ‘the collective unconscious’. Perhaps Raul Dhal himself was a healer of the human psyche, just like many authors who intentionally use their words as medicine. What do you think? Continue Reading Here.

Today is The End of 2012

11 Sep
Is today really the end of 2012? The answer is yes! this post will remind you that the concept of ‘Time’ is relative. We will use Ethiopia as our first example. Here are some facts about The Ethiopian Calendar: it is different to the Gregorian one in a number of ways.
The Ethiopian calendar is divided into 13 months not 12. The new year is on 11th September and 12th during a leap year, like this one in 2020. The Gregorian calendar is 7 to 8 years ahead of the Ethiopian one. Why is this? Time is relative, cultural and current. Different cultures count time in ways that are specific to their traditions. All time counting is dependent upon the celestial movements of stars, planets and natural satellites. Time keeping is also incorporated into traditional and contemporary spiritual and religious ritual practice. Click on this link and continue reading here:

African Emancipation And Ancestral Remembrance

1 Aug

The above image shows part of an aquatic museum of sculptures on the ocean floor off the coast of Grenada in the Caribbean. The artist is Jason deCaires Taylor. A celebrated environmentalist who has created a number of such monuments internationally. The theme of decay, rebirth and metamorphosis, is salient in all his creations. It is for this reason that his work is being highlighted.

Today is African Emancipation Ancestral Remembrance Day. The 1st August is celebrated internationally, to remember the great disaster which took place over five centuries and created satellite traditions of African heritage people, on every continent on earth. And in the spirit of finding order out of chaos, it is clearly a deeply poignant moment for all African heritage peoples. Many of whom, have no idea who their bloodline ancestors were or where they came from. Today the loss of liberty and life is commemorated, by the survivors of this crime against humanity. A fact which is eulogised in songs, poetry, art work, in sculptures, in dance, in fables and in any way that we as humans can relay a message, for the healing of a nation.Continue reading here…

Your Network is Your Net-Worth: True or False?

14 Jul

The video above is part of a playlist selection of supporters who have reviewed my Fables Series. I would like to say a big thank you to my fellow content creators. Mutual respect and Infinite abundance.

Did I mention that my favourite past time is writing? I wrote my first unpublished story at aged 12. I keep a daily journal, and I encourage you to do the same. By the time I was in my mid 20’s I was a published author, as part of a writers’ collective. When I arrived at the gates of higher learning, a few years later, the books had sold over 5000 copies, mainly in the UK. All this happened during the pre smart phone era. As you can perhaps imagine, this was a big deal amongst members of my network, as well as my new friends at university. Did it go to my head? Well perhaps a little (smile). For those of you who have had the opportunity to engage in deep reflections, about life and the universe, you will realise how important this is for your personal development and your spiritual growth. It is not a requirement for you to attend university for this to happen. If you have not found your kindred spirits yet, search them out and make a connection. You will be glad that you did.
