    SiGnOtHeTiMeS w Queen Tahiyrah & the OSDSI Ile in Cincinnati Ohio What is BEMBE?

    in Motivation

    TONIGHT 4/17/15 6PM EST THE CINCINNATI ILE OF OBAFEMI IFAYEMI DIVINE STUDY of IFA WILL BE ON SIGN O THE TIMES speaking about an upcoming event in Cincinnati, Ohio set for 4/25/15 PLEASE JOIN US.....  Chief Obafemi Ifayemi Epega, the Mayegun of Ode Remo, Nigeria


    Bembé: The Rhythm of the Saints
    A bembé is a party for the orishas. During a bembé the orishas are praised, saluted and entreated 
    to join the party through `mounting' one of the priests or priestesses in attendance. This is done 
    through a confluence of the song, rhythm, and movement, all calling to the orisha in such a way 
    that the orisha will recognise themselves in the lyrics, rhythms and dances as they have been 
    performed for them for perhaps thousands of years.


    The rhythms play an important part of the equation and the drummers practice assiduously for years 
    to be able to play the intricate rhythms correctly. This is important since the drums are actually 
    speaking to the orishas as the Yoruba language is a tonal one and the drums are tuned in such a way 
    as to play the tones of Yoruba speech. For this reason some rhythms are never played unless it is 
    in religious context as it would offend the orisha. These rhythms are actually prayers to the 
    deities with each orisha having its own rhythms associated with them.


    Dance also becomes prayer in the religious context of a bembé. The movements of the dances are the 
    same motions associated with the orishas for thousands of years. As with the rhythms played on the 
    drums, each orisha has its own dances with Yemayá's dance emulating the motion of the waves, Ogún's 
    chopping with his machete, Oshún's portraying her primping in front of her hand held mirror, etc.

    The Grantham Taylor Hughes Show

    in Legal

    Every Sunday at 6:30 PM EST, Dr. Lord Grantham Taylor, Hughes J.d., L.c.m.D., Ph.D. (Grantham), explores the 1930 Geneva Convention International bankruptcy and its contemporary effects on our society. He also analyses the necessity of his four foundation bankruptcy platform planks of health, sovereignty, solvency, and afianchetto. These planks include talking about bankruptcy money issues, e.g., Federal Reserve exemption account accessable fees which help those in need along with detailed information regarding all currency.


    Grantham, having  been a contracts expert for many years is presently a retired trust lawyer with his family as the eminent Bauer-Rothschild clan that gleans his Lordship as one Baron von Bauer-Rothschild. That credibility and his Self-Realization experience in India many years ago displays his particular brand of intelligently illuminating yet glib presentation. Along with his journalist "side-kick" Gabriella Foster, they bring a fun atmosphere to seemingly lugubrious salient subjects effecting our world today. Come join this "dynamic duo" and learn about important information necessary in negotiating our way in a venue of confusion at times. Clear and cogent insightfulness genuinely will enable many to free themselves from the political ignorance around them. Much of this ignorance remains the problems of not knowing the Uniform Commercial code (UCc) and its lawful presence in the international courts. We know that the courts remain mostly in denial of the UCc. Grantham explains rightfully so as of the bankruptcy embarrassment and potential handgun revolution concern. He adds that provocative positions are unnecessary and working together gathering wisdom instead of adversarialism. Again, join this perfect recumbentibus team extrapolating a more powerfully pithy political posture found nowhere else.

    Ode to the Heart.....and all things pink and green!

    in Self Help

    This week we will delve into working on the pink level...or heart chakra.  It is amazing to me that this is the chakra where the "bear goes through the woods".  This is the spot where we decide to move forward and forgive, or drop back into our instincts.


    I am looking forward to chatting with you about this and any other recovery topic that comes up on Building Blocks of Recovery Radio, every Monday at 3:30 PM PST, on BlogTalk Radio!

    Are You Smarter Than Your Pastor: Ode to Black History Malcolm X

    in Religion

    Jer 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.


    In these difficult days and times we often look to spiritual leaders for guidance and instruction in our lives. As Christians (followers of Christ) should these leaders speak from their mind, or from what is written based on the word of God? This show will examine things said by men and woman claiming to be Gods ministers to reveal whether or not they are speaking Gods word and doing his will. 1Pet 4: 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through JesusChrist, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.We hope you tune in and listen to our show. 


    We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thur 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am.  All times are Eastern Standard Time.
