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:

Who should you invite into your sanctuary also called your life?

1 Mar

Who should you invite into your sanctuary also called your life? For every member of your network who decides to seek negative attention, there will be those who wish you well. They will be there for you in the good times and when there are challenges. This is what we call unconditional love. And as Damien Marley reminds us, “unconditional love is rare” (check out ‘There For You‘ by Damien Marley).

Now let’s look at those negative attention seekers. These are the people in your network who take advantage, simply because they know you and have access to your time. It could be a regular premeditated habit or an occasional, ”lets put a spanner in the works attitude.” Some call this the crabs in the barrel mentality. Click on this link to continue reading

Happy Solar Return Ancestor Toni Morrison

18 Feb

Today we honour the life of ancestor Toni Morrison, a writer who used invisible ink.

 Toni Morison (born Chloe Ardelia Wofford), was the 1993 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and professor emeritus in the Council of Humanities, Princeton University. She spoke extensively about the relationship between readers and text. In one of her talks, she explains the process of writing with invisible ink, as being a tool which invites the reader to co-create the narrative with the author, one where the words dissolve and the experience of what is being described comes alive to all the senses, triggering painful or pleasant memories and also providing hope for the future.

Fellow African American, Dr Charles S Finch III, Indigenous Priest, Author and Master Teacher, shares his insights into the author as follows:

“Toni Morrison was one of the five to ten most important novelists of the last 50 years.  But what interests me most about her is that she was a personal friend of both Jan Carew and Ivan Van Sertima.  She is the one who shepherded Van Sertima’s ground-breaking THEY CAME BEFORE COLUMBUS through Random House, where she was an editor, and got it published there.  So you might say that her influence on the intellectual history of the black world extended beyond her Nobel Prize-winning literary output.”

Those who find themselves gravitating towards the written word are usually, being influenced by the energy signature of Orisha Obatala. Owner of the white cloth and the head of all humans.

How To Feed Your Destiny With Energy Medicine

18 Feb

In the Yoruba pantheon of energy signatures, Orisha Obatala is the owner of all heads. The head of a human is very important to our existence. What would you do without it? I hear you chuckling… But seriously, we could not live without it. We experience the world through our senses and the head is the main receptor of sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell. Our personal computer resides in our head, also called the brain. In the centre of our brain, is the pineal gland, which some say is the seat of the soul. We think with our brains. Be reminded that thought precedes action, therefore thought is a prerequisite to survival. Let your intellect triumph over your ego. And when we align our inner spirit with our head and our heart our journey is illuminated and we also help others to see the way.

And when we decide to use the language of Orun (heaven), we will be bathing in the energy of this pure life force. Orun is a place where all humans come from and will return to. You are responsible for choosing order or creating chaos in your life, here on Aye (earth). Energy medicine is anything that uplifts your spirit and challenges you to do better. When things are not going as well as you expected, there may be more than one reason for this…

Ifa Orisha Explanation of a Disease Pandemic

1 Feb

Death is our one true promise and if it is our time to leave earth, nothing can stop this from happening. Pre-mature death is quite a different matter. And we have no way of determining the difference between the two.

The 2020 Gregorian Decade, has greeted us with terrifying news of a disease pandemic, which has already taken many souls back to their ancestors. Condolences to their friends and family members. The Ifa spiritual practice accounts for this devastation by attributing the process to Orish Obaluaye. His name is a combination of King (Oba) and Earth (aye). His symbolisms are the crook, symbolising his authority and the small broom, symbolising his ability to clear away disease. He dresses in raffia to symbolise poverty, yet it is adorned with cowrie shells, a symbol of wealth. In the ifa system of divination he is associated with Oturopon Meji, the 12th binary Odu energy signature, where the spirit of disease is invoked. Orisha Egungun (the spirit of the ancestors) also features heavily in this reading. So what can we learn from these events? And how should we proceed going forwards?
