    AMERICAN IFA : Finally Recognized

    in Lifestyle

    You are invited to call 347-850-1533 TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE on Sunday, November 16, 2014 at 6: pm EST with our special guest Iya Ayaba OchaBi Awodele-Ifaseye to discuss "AMERICAN IFA: Finally Recognized".


    In the wake of the recent turmoil that have been coming out of Nigerian and Lukumi Ifa/Orisa communities, initiates in the diaspora have been caught in the middle and feeling the pressure from both faiths on either end. What the initiates, particularly AFRICAN AMERICANS are now asking is; WHAT IS OUR IDENTITY? The Yoruba are saying, we can initiate you but "you will never be Yoruba" and the Cubans are saying they will train you only if you speak Spanish and pledge allegiance to them only. So, WHY IS AMERICAN IFA HERE?



    What is the problem?
     
    What is the key to the core of the problem?
     
    Can we define the problem to deleted or minimize causes(s) that created the problem?
     
    What is the final analysis about the problem?
     
    What method(s) will we use to find the correct solution?
     
    What are other challenges will we meet to bring change(s) in the diaspora?
     
    How will we implement the solution to a mass of people or to a segment of people?

WHO IN THE IFA/ORISA RANKS GAVE THESE PEOPLE THE AUTHORITY TO INVESTIGATE IFA/ORISA DEVOTEES AND/OR PRACTITIONS?  WHAT IN THEIR INDIVIDUAL ODUS OF IFA SANCTIONS THEM TO ASSUME THESE SELF-APPOINTED POSITIONS?  DO YOU THINK WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS SPIRITUAL ABUSE?

    Do join us live on Sunday, September 21, at 8:pm Eastern Standard Time by calling 347-850-1533 for an insightful and thought provoking discussion on TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE


    COMMENTARY:


    Aboru and Alaafia to all! There are a group of people who are using FACE BOOK pages as a means to destroy the images and reputation of Popular Ifa/Orisa/Egun practioners using SLANDER AND COWARDICE (hiding their idenity).  It seems as if they have personal vendettas against individuals with HIGH PROFILES in the Ifa/Orisa/Egun communities. Their vendettas stem from disputes over differing opinions on HOT TOPICS that involve how these high profile people represent Ifa/Orisa/Egun to the world.  These people are taking away the love people have for Ifa/Orisa/Egun in their roles as "SELF-APPOINTED IFA FRAUD POLICE"

    HAS THE CONSTANT EGO DRIVEN REMARKS MADE BY AWOS OF IFA AND ORISA  TO EACH OTHER AFFECTED YOUR OUTLOOK ON WHETHER OR NOT YOU WANT TO BE IN THIS WALK OF LI FE?


    DOES THESE ACTS OF LIBEL AND DEFAMATION BORDER ON RELIGIOUS TERRORISM AND RITUAL CRIMES IN ORDER TO KEEP OTHERS IN SPIRITUAL BONDAGE THROUGH MANIPULATION OF IFA AND ORISA KNOWLEDGE?

    HOW WILL IFA MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD?

    in Lifestyle

    It is said that "IFA WILL MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD" but in looking at the state of affairs in the Ifa-Orisa-Egun Worldwide FAMILY, and the closed-mindedness other religious families have towards us, it is of great urgency that we assit IFA in the mending of our broken world. In the Ifa  Odu of the Year, (JUNE 2014-JUNE 2015), "ODI OGBE" WARNS all DEVOTEES AND PRACTIONERS that there would be many who come to destroy the image of the AWO when Solagbade Poopola wrote; "grand conspiracies and intrigues against all Awo the world over.  Adherants of other faiths are making all efforts in their power to surpress and overwhelme all Awo in order to ensure that they do not amount to anything in the scheme of things".  IFA NEVER LIES and because of that, Ifa cautions all AWOS (adepts) to not misbehave, especially towards women or else...Instead, seek for amicable resolutions to differences and not use your spiritual powers to attack other AWOs or for the purpose of control as many men who feel they must have control over a woman or be higher than a woman in rank and status are doing now.     


    HOW DO WE GO ABOUT GETTING OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUPS OFF OUR BACKS? WHAT ARE SOME POSITIVE WAYS IN WHICH WE CAN PROMOTE IFA TO NON-IFA/ORISA/EGUN PEOPLE WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES?  WHAT POSITIVE STEPS DO YOU THINK WE WOULD HAVE TO TAKE AS INDIVIDUALS IN ORDER TO HELP MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD? WHAT CHANGES HAVE YOU AND/OR YOUR IFA/ORISA COMMUNITY MADE TO HELP MEND OUR BROKEN WORLD?

    IFA/ORISA BARGAIN HUNTERS: IS IT ABOUT BUSINESS OR SPIRITUALITY?

    in Lifestyle

    THERE IS A GROWING TREND FOR PEOPLE TO IFA/ORISA BARGAIN HUNT? IS IFA/ORISA LIFE ABOUT BUSINESS OR IS IT ABOUT SPIRITUALITY? WHAT DOES THE COST FOR INITIATIONS, EBOS AND RITUALS HAVE TO DO WITH YOUR SPIRITUALITY?  DO THE COST OF INITIATIONS, EBOS AND RITUALS DRUM UP BAD FEELINGS AND INTERFERE WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL WALK? WHY DO PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT COST FOR INITIATIONS, EBOS AND RITUALS?  WHY ARE PEOPLE SEEKING COST EFFECTIVE WAYS TOWARD SPIRITUAL FULFILMENT? DOES THE PROCESS OF BARGAIN HUNTING FOR INITIATIONS, RITUALS AND EBOS CREATE INTERNAL STRIVE AND DISCORD BETWEEN AWOS AND THOSE WHO BARGAIN HUNT? WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST BE DONE ABOUT THIS GROWING TREND?


    COMMENTARY: As cost of living rise so does cost for everything else, including all the items needed for initations, ebos and rituals. This cost also includes payment for manpower used to perform initiations, ebos and rituals. This issue has not stopped people from wanting to initiate or needing to do ebos and rituals but it does cause people to BARGAIN HUNT!

    CHANGE WITHIN THE RANKS OF IFA/ORISA LIFE

    in Lifestyle

    This episode of TRUE TALKS WITH OFAE OFAE centers on CHANGE WITHIN THE RANKS OF IFA/ORISA EGUN LIFE. Some of the issues that reflect a need for change is the exclusion of women in key positions such as being on the IFA COUNCIL (an organization that speaks for the rights of all Ifa/Orisa devotees and practioners worldwide).  Some of the questions that will be explored are as follow:


    What is the Ifa Council?  Do women hold executive roles on the Ifa Council? Do women have a say on the Ifa Council? What other roles do women have in Ifa/Orisa life that gives them power of authority?  What difference will it make if women are placed in head positions on the Ifa Council?


     


    Our special guests who will be speaking on this topic are:


    Iya Ayaba OrisaBi Awodele-Ifaseye (Awo-Iyanifa, Teacher, CEO at Queenchiku Ngozi Art Gallery, Inc.


     Iya Abiye Awo Agbaye, Ifa/Orisa priest, Oloye(Chief Priest) at Ile Iwosan Orunmila Mimo Temple


    You are invited to call in to ask questions to our guest and/or share your opinion on the subject at hand.
