Ifa Odu Ose-Ose

recentmentI wan to share a little bit about the odu Oshe’Sa. For the most part one of it’s most significant message; If you harbor resentment in your heart you might as well take poison. Think about this.

So much energy is spent harboring such powerful energy, that the only person impacted by its negative results is you.

Often times we take on a reality which is not who we are. A facade; if you will, is the most destructive persona we can assume. We put ourselves in a state of “being” which does not resonate with who we truly are. It is no wonder that the powerful Oya energy would come to our rescue.

Oyas’ presence may not seem like a rescuing act, but think about it. If we continue to present a persona we are not, eventually you will lose yourself in that illusion, and all you can do to save the illusion is to continue to lie about who, and what you are. Eventually Oya will shake the false foundation you have created and leave you barren for the world to “see” your true identity.

You are beautiful just the way you are!

All you have to do is find your true exterior beauty, and form a truthful mental image of yourself, just as you where meant to be. If yourecentment2 find this a difficult task, then visit your Babalawo, and undertake this quest.

Resentment is like one ounce of poison you take when you fail to accept your participation.

  1. In June of 2008, I received an email that said “You are a magnet for everything in your life”. I began to reflect on myself and realized that the strife I was experiencing at the time was self inflicted by my thoughts, words and actions. Sometimes, I was 100% responsible. Other times, it was influenced by the mix of toxicity I was swimming in. I took that email to heart and began to reflect on myself. Personal honesty requires deliberate effort, hard work and discomfort, but the rewards are unimaginable! I then began to be honest with others in my life, which eventually led to the loss of many relationships, my job, my pereptions…the literal foundation I had built was crumbling! I realized that after the flood waters receded, that I was…OKAY! It was only after ‘I had been torn down’ that I was able to reorient myself toward my true path! Maintaining an unhealthy environment kept me shrouded and blind. I had to connect internally to even recognize my choices were hampering my spiritual/personal growth and they had to be re-evaluated…immediately!! I could not have reached that place had the universe not put me on my back like a turtle on it’s shell! I’ve a long, open road to travel, but…I have nothing but time to continue to evolve. And, since cleansing my life of toxicity, I have no fear of finding my true self and holding steady on my course. That is not to say this is a piece of cake!!! Thank you again, Baba, for your guidance!

  2. Ose’sa came up for me when inquiring about a position I am considering applying for. Although, I have my own resources to decifer the messages that arise from divination, I often like to seek other peoples interpretations of the energy and add them to what I already have. Aside from the info on the site itself, Julie’s comment about her e-mail was particularly enjoyable and “right on point”. I tell people that when I am faced with an obtacle, challenge, or find myself in an unenviable position, I take deliberate steps to examine my role in creating it. Once I identify my role (if you’re being honest with yourself, you’ll find you always play at least some role), I can then move forward knowing that if I created it, then I can do something to change it. So many times, the first step in making those changes is releasing those pinned up negative feeling/emotions and letting your Ori rise freely! Modupe pupo Baba.

    1. Alaafia;

      I apologize for the tardy reply.

      The sweet and simple comment I can give on on this Odu is that you have the power to manifest any reality you which for (Ose); notwithstanding you need to be realistic and keep in mind any and all mistakes you made in the past, especially those which where based on denial. make sure you project yourself in a truthful manner and do not masquerade your abilities in order to impress (Osa).
