1. First, I can not believe one ancient civilization’s culture and spirituality more likely to determine the fate of the world than any other. I’m not fond of fortune tellers to begin with. If you have knowledge a rock is about to fall upon your head, common sense says you should move. Yet I have yet to meet a soothsayer with a smooth scalp.

    Could you explain how Oya and Shango fit into this equation?

    1. Alaafia,

      Thank you for your honest point of view and question.

      Our western culture with its obsession for “quick fixes” and comfort at the expense of our natural surroundings has created false sense of security and a believe that we are not impacting our planet or the universe we are part of. Balance has and must be restored in order for our species to flourish and “see” a new awakening.

      We treasure our comfort and in a complainant yet false state of reality;live a life where we show little if no respect for our natural surroundings. When we create a false sense of reality, and security, a facade if you will, Oya is called upon to shake the false foundation we stand upon and cause us to “see” the truth of things.

      This is not a pleasant experience, as we find ourselves in the “back seat” of a car who is being driven by someone else we can not see, and the direction we are headed is unknown and extremely uncomfortable, yet once we are able to see the truth of our ways, and accept we need to make those uncomfortable changes, we can identify what needs to be let go and are able to identify all those things which we have no use for as they have become putrefied, and only serve to make us ill. At this stage we need help with getting rid of this baggage.

      The energy of Shango helps us identify, and see clearly almost as through an epiphany that which is no longer of use to us. Like when lightning strikes, and in so doing illuminates the firmament, and destroys that which is no longer of use to nature we too can call upon the help of Shango.

      This is the Shango Oya equation.

      Ogbo ato; long life be given unto to you
      Dele Ifayemi
