Ayan is the orisha of musical instruments, particularly the drum and stringed instruments. In African culture, the drum is the main instrument for inducing trance. It does this through mimicking the heart beat. The drum is the heart of the earth.
The importance of trance is to inculcate programs into our subconscious (the driving spirit). We are suppose to write our own programs, but since most of us do not understand the role of trance, our exploiters write programs for our subconscious to follow.

Osanyin is the orisha of herbal medicine. This is one of the most neglected orisha in all of the world’s indigenous systems. As a result, the Europeans’ most powerful weapon against melanin-rich people has been the usurpation of their healthcare. There is no greater power. The control of the FDA and health insurance companies have made it so that it is difficult to escape his authority over your health. If there is only one goal that we have in the liberation of our people, it is the reclamation of our control over our own healthcare. Even in the so-called orisha worshipping community many of you are bedazzled by babalawo who travelled to Nigeria. They know countless rituals and love nothing more than to “consult Ifa for you” for a nominal fee. However, if you ask them about their knowledge of herbs they will focus on the chanting of words of power and more mysticism. They generally have done little worshipping of Osanyin. While there are various specialties for all babalawo today, in the Pre-Maafa Yorubaland, you could not call yourself a babalawo without extensive knowledge of effective herbal medicinal practices. The babalawo, or Father of Secrets, first role was not a diviner, but a healer! View high resolution

Happy New Year from Nok and Orisha’s.

divinemoon:


The best Warrior…
One day life hit me so strong that taught me to resist
One day they lied to hurt me and I learned to go head-on with the truth…
One day failed who least I imagined and I understood that the words have to comply with them, and should be responsible for the acts…
Sometimes it is necessary to turn the page and start from scratch, although it costs, even if it hurts.
The best Warrior is not who always triumphs, but who turns without fear to the battle.

I love you Baba! Maferefun Baba mi Oggun todos los dias de mi vida!

"The Orisha Experience" A Photographic Exhibition by James C.Lewis

Opening Party: Thursday 24th October / 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Exhibition Open Daily 11:00am to 6:00pm till Friday 1st November

Venue: Cre8 Gallery 80 Eastway, Hackney Wick, London E9 5JH


This will be the first European exhibition showcasing the work of photographer James C. Lewis. The series features his interpretations of the African Orishas from the Ifa religion of Nigeria.

His choice to create this series may have been a subconscious homage to his Nigerian heritage, but his true goal was to tell the story of the Orishas who have inspired so much throughout history particularly in resistance movements against religious, social and economic imperialism against Africans and the diaspora . This series is a powerful and enlightening series that features astoundingly beautiful imagery of African people.

“I wanted to portray the regal beauty of each Orisha while also representing their majestic sensuality. Each iconic depiction was rendered to lend strength to our resilience as a great race of people and to show our youth that they are beautiful, bold and brilliant just the way God created them to be.”
