2020 Reading of the World

by Iyalode Yeyefini Efunbolade


 

  •  Ose Odi      He who pays remains free    

  •  Ofun Bara  (Ire) A king or royal person. Secrets are not to be told.

  •  Irosun Ejionle (Ariku)  The king dies and a king is born. He who is born for the head should not be left in the tail.

  • Odi - Ogunda  (Kotojale )   Look at what is in front of your eyes.

  • Obara Odi (closed) The dog has four feet but travels only. 

  • The ceremony/ritual of the year is: Take  lots of spiritual baths for balance, peace, optimism, and positivity

  • Regular consistent and elaborate ceremonies to Egbe Orun to appease negative malevolent Egbe spirits with fruits, cooked foods, sweets, banana, sugarcane  (The malevolent spirits which cause havoc, have survived as lawless men to cause havoc in the life of people. They are elusive, whose powers and personalities fluctuate but whose malevolency tends to constantly remind the people of their presence and their influence. They can plan sinister ideas in their victim’s mind or cause them great confusion. The individuals who share this personality and come from this type of Egbe are amongst us. They are serial killers, rapists, kidnappers, armed robbers, thugs and so on )    Excerpt from the book Egbe Orun Comrades of Heaven written by Ifayemisi Elebuibon. 

  •  

  • This is the year where we have the blessing and opportunity of looking at the world expansively from the perspective of knowing that what we do will set us free.

  • Wars are not won by bigger and better guns or weapons, but rather by strategy and insightful planning

 

  • By changing past attitudes and behaviors  will connect us to a better opportunity for global harmony

  • Take care of your blood

  • Do rituals and ceremonies prior to traveling for wellbeing

  • If we create a space that we are all connected, we will see rewards if we do the work.  What we do will manifest into what we see. (i.e. If we pollute the water, we pollute our food and ourselves)

  • We must recognize that we are brothers and sisters, interconnected. Must protect, defend  each other from injustice, abuse, neglect, greed if we are to survive and thrive

  • Do not categorize ourselves into groups

  • Do not complain, step up and do what needs to be done to keep this world balanced.  Be the voice for the change that you want to see.

  • Revelations, people talking about injustices that will give credibility to that we are one

  • Look at what is in front of your eyes; pay attention, open your heart to others, our neighbors, our world as we are all the same. Be vigilant 

  • Many  will see the importance of traveling to  different parts of the world, expand their awareness and recognizing the importance of global collaboration 

  • Do not deplete our resources by ignorance, greed, and sense of entitlement 

  • Stay focused, not scattered with plans and intentions. Look at the overall picture before making decisions that can affect you personally, globally about, you, your community and the planet 

  • Take responsibility and know what you want and step into action passionately.

  • Confessions and many Pandora boxes being opened up about things from the past can bring about change in the perspective of many of our global leaders.

  • Look at what is in front of us; do not get caught up in  fear, dogma and confusion 

  • WE ARE ONE! What you pay forward, you will reap.  There is no them or us, we are all together in this world

  • Call on the powerful ancestors of the world/ universe for spiritual assistance   Ultimately PEACE is what everyone wants; however, war is not the way to attain it.

  •  Consider small  daily activities and  choices that will affect change for the better such as turning off lights, heaters, when unnecessary 

  • Families should come together to strengthen the power of love and bring about healing 

  •  Ritual of the year—Spiritual baths (flower baths, herbal baths, pray over the water before you drink in the morning and at night, call your name)

  • (Ireson bara) Africans in the Diaspora have so much however, we have to look inside and see what is not working.  We have to ask ourselves, “what is not working internally for us?” and “what is not working for the legacy are we handing down to our future generations?”

  • Cut ourselves open (the orange) and acknowledge and recognize the power that we have and NOT the failure that the world would love for some to believe who we are.  We have to recognize and make the world acknowledge the contribution of the development of  America through the enslavement of the African brought to the western hemisphere We have the power and the money

Invocation and  Prayer for success and healing of each other and the world

From Fire in The Soul p 186. Joan Borysenko

“May I be at peace. May I know the beauty of my own true nature.  May my heart remain open. May I be healed.”

 

Call to mind one or several friends or loved ones in as much detail as you can…...See them in the circle of light and focus on them with great respect and love…...

 

“May you be at peace.  May you know the beauty of your own true nature.  May your heart remain open. May you be healed.”

 

Call to mind one or more people that you feel in conflict with.  See them standing in the light……

 

“May you be at peace.  May you know the beauty of your own true nature.  May your heart be open. May you be healed.”

 

See our delicate planet, suspended like a jewel in the velvet blackness of space.  Her white clouds, blue waters, and green continents…… Imagine her fiery core, majestic mountains, plants, and animals……a living, breathing being of light.

 

“May there be peace on earth.  May the hearts of all beings be open to one another.  May all life reach its fullest potential. May all life reflect the glory of the light.”

 

Once again, feel yourself surrounded, enfolded and illuminated by the circle of light……If there is anything in your heart that you need to say to God, do so now……

Dear One, Father/Mother of All, thank you for the gift of life.  Amen
