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.

Mecury Retrograde, Again?!?

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!


8 of Swords + 5 of Pentacles + The Magician


Shit is real in these streets. We are all experiencing some level of frustration. Mercury is retrograde yet again. Confusion and discord abound. People stumble along blindly trying to find their way. Aggravation, worry, and despondence are inevitable. They will enter but it’s our job to ensure that they do not take up residence.


Shit is real in these streets but the way you perceive your current situation is only making it worse. The victim mentality creates a prison for those who indulge in it. Are you imprisoning yourself with negative thinking? Are you the cause of your own bondage? Have you been feeling hopeless? Do you focus on what you lack? If you answered yes to any of these questions, know you are not alone. The struggle is universal.


The truth is each one of us has the ability to exert our will to bring forth change. The Magician comes forth to remind us that even though shit is real we have the POWER to shift situations and circumstances. We have been blessed with the ability to act as co-creators here on earth. What do you want to create? Break free of excessive worry, fear, confusion, and feelings of lack. Break free from bondage and be the magician.


Be the Magician.

Your Inheritance Awaits!

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!

Knight of Pentacles + The Empress


When I pulled these cards something in my spirit stood at attention. I became excited. A sound of exasperation escaped my lips and I felt the word inheritance. Yes, I said I felt the word. I didn’t hear it. When my intuition speaks it does so clearly and with certainty. It screams inaudibly. Suddenly, I know the truth. Suddenly, without any forethought, I know the answer. That’s what happened when I pulled the Knight of Pentacles and The Empress. I examined the symbols, the colors and the general spirit of the cards. And received this message >>> Your inheritance is coming. A gift of abundance and wealth is coming your way. Are you ready to receive it? Your passion and will power are the keys to this abundance. Your adherence to the natural laws of the universe is yet another key.

At this time be sure to put yourself in the position to receive.

Be open.

Stay hopeful & encouraged no matter what your situation looks like.

Pray and make offering.

Take walks in nature.

Pursue joy.

Laugh.

Love.

Rest.

Give.

Embrace your humanity.

Do good.

Be encouraged knowing that your struggle is about to come to an end. Ase.

Initiate Peace

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!

The Lovers + Queen of Swords + 5 of Wands

The cards tell a story. The imagery, numbers, and symbols weave together to provide a vision of what lies ahead. The subconscious calls forth the cards needed to communicate this vision and help us see the truth in our situations. It is our job to tune in and pay attention to the messages that emerge.

This week we find a combination of cards which encourages us to move in the direction of others and to do so lovingly. Venus is now in retrograde. This aspect can put a strain on relationships if we are not conscious of our behaviors and patterns. The Lovers card is a card of merging. The coming together of two souls in the name of love. The sun shines down on the individuals who have made the choice to love. The heavens celebrate their union. During this time allow the energy of the Queen to come in with her clarity and bless your relations. Approach communications clearly and with a sharp mind. Your intelligence will serve you well at this time. Do not allow emotion to overrule your logic. This clarity supports you in moving through this retrograde period smoothly and with little disturbance.

The 5-a number of change indicates that change is coming to your relationships. Change is not always enjoyable but it is a constant, one that we can not avoid. The way to move through this change smoothly is to do so with focus and adaptability. Focus on your prefered outcomes instead of worrying about all that could go wrong. Adapt gracefully instead of holding onto past ways of being. Your blessings are forthcoming only if you prepare for their arrival.

If you want peaceful relationships, initiate peace. If you want balanced relationships, initiate balance. If on the other hand you want to engage in discord, that option is available to you as well. It really is your choice.


Be clear in your intention and send out what you want to attract.
