Remove Issues Blocking Your Progress

One question I get asked a lot by those investigating Ifa is if it is a religion or not. I like to tell them that Ifa is a spiritual philosophy that when integrated into their lives will empower them to overcome obstacles in their lives.

Those that are very interested continue to ask me exactly how does Ifa help to remove obstacles. It is at this point that we have a discussion about “energy” and how with the proper energy one can be motivated to work on issues blocking your progress in life.

Through the discussion about energy, they are able to comprehend that the energy I’m speaking about is spiritual.

As we continue to break down this spiritual energy they start to understand that all inspiration comes from spirit. When you look up this word you find that the Online Etymology Dictionary says that the word inspiration means an “immediate influence of God or a god”.

Therefore, it can be said that Ifa is a technology that helps you to connect with God or a god in order to receive inspiration (instruction) on how to work through any issue blocking your progress in life.

Removing issues, which are blocking your progress in life, requires some work.

In order to remove any issue blocking your progress in life, you need to understand that you must work with spirit first. By working with spirit you are able to receive the required energy and inspiration that will guide you. The guidance will help you identify if your mind and emotions are in balance.

As I tell them that the mind helps us rationalize the world around us, they start to understand that the rationalization process is based on what they have being taught by their parents, school, and society. These lessons tend to be very conflicting and the root of all emotional turmoil’s.

All experiences are stored in their unconscious mind.

As you experience situations you are not equipped to deal with, they get stored in your unconscious mind until such date in the future when you are ready to deal with the experience.

I share with them that this is why some times we start feeling in a way that we can’t explain, and yet we can’t get rid of the feeling. This is a message from your unconscious mind saying that you are now ready to deal with the experience.

Removing issues blocking your progress in life takes time and patience.

It is important that you work with a competent and experienced Babalawo. Creating a complete alignment between Spirit, Mind, and Body is not easy, yet not impossible. The results manifest in the body, and people around you see it clearly and are drawn to it because it is a very peaceful “safe” energy.

As sentient beings, we have the energy (spirit) that quickens our physical body, a mind where all our reasoning is done, and an unconscious mind that stores all experiences as emotions.

      I understand your sentiment, and have even had some first hand experience with your dilemma. The answer is in doing some serious and honest introspection. It is true that bad things happen to good people, yet everything that happens in your life is the result of a choice or action taken. Even not making a choice or taking no action produces a similar degree of repercussions.

      We all have a guiding light within us. In Ifa we call it Ori. When Ori speaks and we listen we always avoid problems, but when we neglect to listen, we end up recognizing our mistake when we find ourselves in the midst of our problems.
