“Culture is the Chief Magistrate of One’s Destiny”
Oba A.A.Adefunmi II
How very strange to be awakened at two in the morning, beading and praying in the Presence of Truth. It IS the Season of Destiny ,where upon in days past, would have found this omo Obatala, full of paint and dirty through the streets and temples of Oyotunji! The Divine re assignments from the end of May through the Ancestral Festival, Odun Yemoja and Now Odun Orunmila… requires deep adjustments.
As the June lunation of the Storyteller comes to a close and opens for Loves All Things in July, we find ourselves just coming back into Fresh breath from last week’s dance with Sister Ivy. It came with a warning: even in the most Sacred of ceremonies, invisible poisons exists. The STRONG Heavenly commands to sit still and focus on Healing are BEing obeyed! Much of my heart is pulling me to the mat of the Babalawo, bowing in devotion to the realignment necessary to walk this Sacred path.
To dress and go for show, is one thing…for camping and time and art and the beach…
is more energy than we can muster and yet a ride may be sent ? As has been our privilege and honor of recent days, the heavenly hosts do send forth chariots for the missions!
Like wise what an honor to BE sitting present for a conversation three decades in the making on White privilege and dismantling racism!!! These are the pages of life that make us give up our shallow agenda of feeling guilty about what we haven’t done and where we are NOT???
We recognize that Ofun Odi is celebrated in every breath we take, every nap we take, every blog we write and all the prayers, rituals and ceremonies in between…
We bring adimu of Gin and palm oil to our ikin. We humble ourselves in surrender to a Destiny so much bigger than this mind’s comprehension! My Iyalosa has told me many times…”A wanderer can never have a great Love for their Home”. To this day we seek the fullest wisdom in knowing that proverb from the inside out! The Oneness in Heart IS HOME, wherever the geography! Like a Queen of Many Thrones, we are reminded of the Casandra Theory. It begs the question, “ever met a time traveler?” and furthermore, could you believe or even comprehend ANY of what that traveler might say or share with you?
After all, theirs is not to prove anything, for the passage of time reveals ALL things. The Council of Celestial Beings all agree that THIS Season of Destiny is filled with Revelations. For we can go no further HIDING the Truth.
Painful and Ugly as it ALL is , there is great Beauty in the awakening of so many that refuse to give up hope and creativity. These are the Divine Blueprint Holders. Many can see the powerful ancestral DNA and cellular memory in the auras of others!!
There are many Unifers, that are doing everything they can to Bring the lone wolves back into the pack!
Seers and Wayshowers keep walking and Guiding others toward the frontlines of apathy and indifference. They make it clear that life and Free will IS about Choosing in this season, Riding the fence built at the Borders belongs to a time that can NEVER BE fully realized.
Goddess BLESS the Grid workers and Gatekeepers for holding such a strong focus from within the Belly of the Earth Mother to balance the eruptions, quakes, winds, solar flares. Our Mother is in third stage labor. No more covering up the tears, rips and bloodstains with Stars and Stripes??? As with every Newborn…Its ALL out in the open!
If your flags are flying in Freedom, get Free from America’s darkest addictions!!! These are the Transmuters coming out of the shadows. Shedding old snake skins and transmuting poison into healing. The Empaths, Messengers and Dreamers continue to stir the slumbering and rattle the cages of the unconscious!
The Lightkeepers dive into the Darkness and turn up the Light within !
The Ascension Guides gently anchor the Phoenixes RISING from the Fires.
