    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?

    ROLES OF WOMEN IN IFA/ORISA LIFE: IYANIFAS ARE TAKING THE LEAD

    in Lifestyle

    "Ifa priestesses are called Iyanifa. Awo is often used as a gender-neutral reference to individual Iyanifa or Babalawo, as well as to the group as a whole. An Awo is a spiritual counsellor to clients and those whom he or she may have assisted in receiving tutelary Orisa shrines and/or initiation into the spiritual tradition of the Orisa. There have been Iyanifa, women Ifa priests, since time immemorial in some areas of the world, such as Ibadan, Nigeria", yet we find that many women of today are still confused about their roles.


    For many years, there have been and still is a huge controversy about the roles of women in Ifa and Orisa life. Women have come from a place of misconception about their roles according to the DOs and DON'Ts set fort by men in Ifa and Orisa life. Many women have been trying to organize women in order to teach them or to bring up their understanding of their responsibilities in Ifa/Orisa life and what CHANGES they can must make within the RANKS OF IFA/ORISA LIFE.  In 2003 a group of Iyanifas organized and held an Iyanifa Worldwide Congress in efforts to bring the women in Ifa/Orisa life to an understanding of herself. Some of the questions surrounding these roles stem around how women are limited or not limited  based on their status as Olorisa, Awo, Iyanifa.


    WHAT IS THE ODU (SACRED IFA SCRIPT) THAT SAYS WOMEN  SHOULD NOT INITIATE OTHER WOMEN INTO IFA? SHOULD WOMEN BE ABLE TO INITIATE MEN INTO IFA, YES OR NO AND WHY OR WHY NOT? KEEP IN MIND THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IYANIFAS WHO ARE TRAINED. YOUR KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE AND OPINIONS ARE APPRECIATE.

    Astrorisa Moon Charts With Iya Olorisa Yemoja

    in Spirituality



    Iya Olorisa Yemoja (Priestess of Yemoja) Initiations spanning 1996 -2002.She works with lunar energy, cycles, women, healing, and more,her learning becomes a life time event.''For S(he) who thinks they know, stops learning''. Once, all societies across the continents of the world intensely studied the messages of the moon. These societies acknowledged the link between moon, woman, and Mother Earth. Once, women societies supported, honored, and brought balance to women's roles within their society, and afforded them a sacred space. And some indigenous men's societies gave homage to the power of the Divine Mother, the feminine mystic and acknowledged the importance of balancing and honoring the Male/Female connection. The Age of Technology has accelerated our movement away from honoring the family, the male/female mystic, and the earth, causing a great imbalance within our psyche. These forecasts follow the course of the moon, focusing upon the relationship between moon (our emotions-inner self), and its correlation to the planets and nature (Orisha / Neteru). Exploring this connection and its influences upon our collective psyche brings balance and harmony
    to our inner being, opens awareness, and encourages sound decision making. It is especially helpful for women to reconnect to lunar energy but men can also benefit. Astrorisa Moon reports are helpful in preparing for the nekebhet-uatchet (subliminal)-(psychic) and ipamon (hidden) energies we are influenced by, and yet many times are unaware of its often challenging command. The planetary- moon influences can be sensed 6-7 days and sometimes 8 days before the date of the new/full moon, and from 4-5 days
