Greetings to All Awos, Elders, and Devotees of All Spiritual Systems
I have been moved to share some very important information that I hope is respectfully received. I, myself, being an African born in America, a descendant of enslaved African slaves have come to a very clear understanding about many things pertaining to myself and my ancestors.
So many things about our lives hail from our level of knowledge, education, and our ability to properly discern the mental, physical, spiritual, sexual and financial aspects of ourselves. I call these five aspects LIFE. Every man and woman and child’s lives are affected and impacted in these five ways, children aside, pertaining to the sexual dealings and interactions. For that comes later in life for them.
This life is weighed, balanced and sustained by the choices and decisions that we make every day pertaining to our lives and the lives that we have blood inherently become responsible for, our children, our gifts, our treasures, our legacies. The only hope that we have for sustaining a race for its future existence. There are so many individuals, right now, active in their role as parents , lacking the information, has yet to find themselves in a place where they have obtained and retained African ancestral knowledge that has the power to grow and progress them, their family and offspring.
Olodumare, God has created each and every one of us as a mind, body, and spirit component being with the hope that we would consciously grow and progress in such manner. And because of the displacement by way of slavery, that has landed us here in the United States of Africa and brought about a very unique race of Africans popularly known as African Americans. We are the tree, people, and our children are the seeds that have been scattered to the fertile ground beneath our feet that is stained with the blood and filled with the bones of our ancestors, and our ancestors have been crying out loudly since the beginning of slavery.
But what are we going to do about it people? Who will listen and take heed to the instructions that have been coming forth? I can only share what I have done and continued to do up until the present. Not allowing myself to get caught up in the cover but make the time to deeply explore the content of many schools of thought, gaining divine knowledge wisdom and understanding along the way. Truth is truth no matter where you discover it. But we must acknowledge the foundation, the structure, and container from which WE hail.
That foundation and structure is ancestral. For we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. Some of us have been navigated to sources of information stemming from many different schools of thought and spiritual systems and have allowed ourselves to get entangled in the appeal and the politics of it all. I myself have been found guilty of this because of entitlement. But quickly succumbing to the understanding that I have been sidetracked into involving myself in something that was not my ancestor’s agenda. Forgetting that the ancestral voice inside of me sent me on a mission to retrieve the information that was needed to return to the burial ground that is stained with the blood and filled with my ancestor’s bones. To take the knowledge, wisdom and understanding that has been gathered and perform the proper rites, rituals and ceremonies to resurrect and elevate the souls of my ancestors that have fallen in body but are in need of acknowledgement and elevation in spirit and initiate myself into this understanding, and I have.
But in order for this to happen we, as a people, must initiate into the purest form of African Indigenous Spirituality that is directly connected to our own personal ancestry. A spiritual understanding that provides us with complete and detailed instructions and understanding on how to carry them out. And after doing so, embody, return, and perform. I myself have gone through many rituals, rites, and initiations. WHY? To be seen and revered as a man in high station? NO.
The initiation process is the doorway that leads into a spiritual library of ancestral knowledge that is needed to continue the work my ancestors sent me here to do. There was no other way. I was not attracted to the Oracle and Orisa because of its appeal. I was ancestrally sent by information that was revealed in the results of an African Ancestry DNA test. This pointed me into three different directions, seen and witnessed like the falling of odu upon the Opon: Nigeria, Yorubaland, the pinnacle principle, Angola, Congo the right principle and Benin, the left principle. Let me state it for the record so that it will be clear, I have always and still do continue to practice what is called N.W.A.T.S. New World African Traditional Spirituality.
I was born here in the United States of Africa for my ancestry is behind me not in front of me. The only thing that I see before me is a great future, for a great people, that were born from struggle, death, oppression, violence, spilled blood and broken bones. As long as I have life in me, this fact, this reality, will not continue to be buried. For the spiritual revolution that has emerged from the backdrop of slavery and has been raging from its beginning to present will resurrect this understanding in the lives of all those who are willing to ancestrally embrace it for future generations to come. I will not allow the sacrificing of our ancestors to be in vain, under any circumstances. An Oracle is a system of truth that reflects all humanity, no matter race or color, and has the power to serve the human existence like fire, spiritually navigating all those who are disconnected from their ancestry to their destiny of purpose.
