Trust Your Ase

Trust Your Ase

Almost 5 years ago I came across the Ifa tradition. It’s been a wonderful and wild ride that I wouldn’t trade for the world. In the early stages, I spent a great deal of time running from place to place seeking information about the tradition. In my seeking, I came across unscrupulous characters and fraudulent information. I was so desperate to gather knowledge that I ignored my better judgment. I am not upset by this. It is part of the process.

Nowadays I am more discerning in my search for knowledge. I’m not thirsty for information. I will not blindly follow anyone who claims to be a Priest, Priestess, or expert. That’s the thing about life. Without those experiences, I wouldn’t be as confident as I am now. Olodumare continues to mold my character and for that I am grateful.

The most important lesson I’ve learned throughout this process is to trust my Ase. In trusting my Ase I am trusting my higher consciousness, my personal power, and my will. I am trusting that I am one with the source of the universe. The source being an ocean of consciousness, me being a tiny drop in that vast ocean. I trust that I am a co-creator. I trust that there is power in my word and will. I trust that I am a mighty force of nature here to fulfill an awesome destiny.

Instead of chasing, pushing, or desperately seeking knowledge; I pray, I listen to my inner knowing and go in the direction of my Ori. There will always be a place for elders and the passing down of knowledge. Yet, we must remember that we too possess an innate knowledge.

Be still. Trust your Ase.

The Choice is Yours

This is the end of the intuitive writing series. Thank You for rocking with me! I hope these messages have resonated with your spirit and empowered you. Blessings.

2 of Wands + 2 of Pentacles + 4 of Cups

The twos usually make their appearance when duality is present. Where there is conflicting energy you will find the 2s. Such is the nature of life. All we experience on Earth is a combination of what we perceive as good and bad, highs and lows. It is unavoidable. There would be no true understanding of one energy without its opposite. The 2 of wands is the energy of vision. What is your vision for the future? What do you want your legacy to be? The 2 of Pentacles shows movement; a frenzy of sorts. In the midst of your daily comings and goings embrace stillness and meditation. Make time to chill so that you can hear, see, and feel the messages that are meant for you. It is in the quiet moments when spirit communicates most clearly. Allow them to come forward and communicate the truth that lies within your heart. Balance between movement & stillness is important at this time. This balance will allow you the freedom to envision your future and the steps you must take to get there.

The 4  of cups can indicate dissatisfaction with the offers coming in at this time. If you are unhappy with what’s coming into your life, make the adjustments needed to attract better. What are you willing to do to attract what you envision? Identify the areas in your life where more balance is needed. Are you ready & willing to step into your power and make shit happen? The choice is yours. It always has been.

P.S. I also see that you are to allow the innocence of youth and animals to penetrate your being. Play and have fun! This will help to settle any restlessness.

Embrace the End...

We’re coming to the end of the intuitive writing series. For the next few weeks, I’ll choose cards from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

9 of Wands + The World

You’ve been through the storm. You’ve endured hardship after hardship. What could go wrong, has gone wrong. And yet you are still standing. Due to the pain of the past you are on the offensive. Waiting for a repeat performance of past disappointments. You are battle tested and weary. The warrior in you stands tall, waiting to defend its territory. The end of this cycle is approaching. Embrace the end. The fight and struggle you’ve become so accustomed to is passing away. You can let down your guard. You no longer have to anticipate the the worst. Things are shifting for the better. Allow yourself to lighten up. Be vulnerable. Open your heart. All is well.

Teamwork Makes The Dream Work!

For the next few months, I will choose cards from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

8 of Wands + 3 of Pentacles

I love this combination! You better get ready. Things will begin to move rapidly in your life. The delays and disappointments you’ve experienced in the recent months are passing away. Obstacles are cleared; roads are open. The stage is set for you to prosper. But, there’s a catch. You are not meant to do this alone. Your success will be the direct result of collaboration. Who can you rely on? Is it family, friends, mentors? Identify dependable individuals whom you can build with and get to it.

Is there a project, trip, or purchase you’ve been considering recently? Don’t go it alone. Your blessing will come from partnership.

Ogun, Clear the Path

For the next few months, I will choose cards from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

Ace of Swords + 2 of Chalices + 6 of Chalices

One day Orisa Ogun was deep in the woods enjoying his favorite pastime, hunting. After some time in the bush, he headed towards a nearby stream for a drink of water. As he approached the stream he heard two men arguing. The men had both caught the same fish. One hook was in one end, the other’s hook was in the other end. The men were arguing over who the fish belonged to. Ogun encouraged the men to calm down and listened to their arguments. Both men were stubborn. Neither of them would calm down long enough to come up with a fair and diplomatic solution. “Enough!” Ogun yelled. His voice echoing through the forest. In an instant, he pulled out his cutlass (machete) and cut the fish in two. Problem solved. Each man received an equal portion of the fish they had caught.

Ogun has come to cut the fish in half. Are you are facing a stalemate? Is there someone in your life who you are not seeing eye to eye with? Are you arguing/fighting over resources? Ogun says no more. It’s time to cut the fish in two. He has come to bring a fair and balanced solution to your situation. You will move from discord to peace. Arguments will transform into mature discussions. Unhealthy relationships will be repaired. Peace offerings and offerings of love will replace anger and hatred. Camaraderie, love, and contentment are being offered at this time. Be open to peaceful resolution. Be open to love.
