Episode 61 - Ask-A-Priest - Should I Do This For Love

Welcome to the Orisha Wisdom Podcast.  This is an Ask-A-Priest episode where a big question is asked and I'll post the whole thing here

"Hi, my girlfriend is Cuban ( lived here in the uk for many years) and her father is a priest in the religion. He has suggested I have my three day ceremony to obtain my “Life Sign” but I’m anxious because one I’m new to this religion but want to do it for my girlfriend and two I have this feeling of mistrust with him because of things that have happened and been said in the past because he has asked Orula in some big decisions that I feel my girlfriend and myself should make as two grown adults. He has been in the religion for twenty plus years but is involved in every decision we make plus I mistrust the business side of the religion and feel he may be abusing it for self gain from myself. I might be completely wrong but the doubt is constantly on my mind . Am I overthinking the religion aspects?

What do you think of this heavy duty question?  Listen in for this answer.  Do you agree?  Do you think that there should be more to this?

Episode 38 - A Iyawo’s Journey

One of the most exciting things when coming to the Orisa Traditions was finding out about the process of becoming a Iyawo.  I couldn't get enough of finding out about them.  When I would see a person dressed all in white... my neck would almost break... I wanted to have their attention... I wanted to talk to them... I wanted to be them.  

It is an exciting prospect to know... that in our path... We could be called to initiate into the mysteries of Orisa.  But... how?  What?  How much?  What does it take? 

Listen to this very candid conversation with someone who at the time of this recording was a Iyawo.  We are grateful for his time, and for him openly sharing his experiences with us.

Thank you for listening to the Orisha Wisdom Podcast!  On this Ask A Priest series of the podcast we are going to begin to tackle the question that burns MANY when they come into our community.  "Why is it so hard to find a Godparent?"  Every day we get this question in one form or another... and it's tough for all those going through this part of the process.  

We hope that you find this episode very helpful because it can begin to give you the insight into the 'why' you might not be able to get your hands on the coveted gold (Godparent).

Episode 34 - Top 10 Reflections of 2019 and Lessons Learned

It is a GOOD thing to reflect on a past year IF we are going to grab lessons that were given to improve our lives and to become better.  Some lessons hit us HARD... some are gentler, and some are huge 'Ah Ha' moments that can pivot how we think and see the world; therefore changing our lives.  

Since we are all humans, every aspect of us intertwines with others.  Listen in and hear what the last year of our last decade showed me.  Do you do a year review?  What did you learn which you are changing this year?  Share your thoughts...
