Orisha Oya: Are you ready to transform or scared?

Orisha Oya

In relationships with ourselves and with others, we often experience great disappointments that we saw coming from a mile away.  We notice the warning signs and small changes that we choose to ignore and that often leads to bigger ones.  Our desire to control our experiences and to avoid disappointment is so great that we ignore every sign that shows us that it is indeed coming.

It is mainly because of our fears that we procrastinate.   Sometimes we advance very slowly.  At other times, despite the truth that life is always in motion, we simply choose to believe it is possible for us to “take a break” and stop moving completely.  We like to sit around and play with the “idea” of becoming greater than who we are and it usually takes an emotional earthquake to actually get us moving in that direction.

Even in our childhood, many of us were taught who God was and what our God(s) was capable of.  We faithfully practiced the rituals prescribed by elders:  giving offerings, being baptized, praying five times a day, working harder, etc.  We were taught how to communicate with that great life force to invoke it, in some way, at our whim.  It was only during our greatest tragic moment, however, that we began to not only question, but to move on the doubts in tradition that we had been long considering.

Slowly moving away from traditional teachings awkwardly changes how we view our elders.  It even begins to affect how we view ourselves.  For many of us, that quest has led us to this very website.  We are all in a constant state of transition that will undoubtedly require fearlessness, or at the very least, courage in the face of fear to continue advancing no matter what.

Oya, the Orisha of transitions, addresses our fear and directs our whirlwind of change through the rearranging of our focus and resources.  Like standing in the midst of a strong wind or great storm, once a transition has begun inside of you, it cannot be “stopped” and you can never actually “take a break.”  It can only be extended or endured until a full transformation takes place, while either inside of this body or after you leave it.  Learning to work with this energy as opposed to fighting it in denial will help you to better tolerate that process of change from who you are now into who you desire to become.

Oya is married to Sango, the Orisha energy of courage.  In utilizing the combination of these two, you can become better equipped to face your fears with courage for the purpose of mentally and physically elevating.   Together, they are able to move things around in our lives, while logically getting us to see and understand why we must leave our fears behind us.

Fear is the energy that WILL prevent you from graduating into the highest life form you can possibly be, but only if you let it.

Now, back to the original question:  Are you ready to transform or scared?

Electricity: How Does Electricity Make Us Grow?

electricity

Electricity

electricity

 

Electricity can generate enough energy to strike a tall tree and set it ablaze or it can emit a subtle enough charge to cause our hearts to beat without our even noticing.  We use it to illuminate our homes and operate our cars.  Electricity is even used by our brains to create thoughts and to carry our will.

There are two types of electricity and Orisa Sango has the potential to wield them both.  He possesses the abilities to blaze a fiery hot trail in the form of “Current” electricity and can also remain cool as “Static” electricity until the right moment arrives to let loose!

His unique balancing act is the result of his being born of Aganju’s energy of anger and Obatala’s energy of logic. The combining of the two also dictates his colors of red and white, respectively.

In historical “accounts,” Sango has been connected to three different Goddesses:  Oba of the River, Oya of the Wind, and Osun who is protector of our heads and inner souls.  All three of these Orisas are good conductors of Sango’s energy.

His brother is said to be Ogun, the God of iron and Sango, as great a warrior as he is, remains the more level-headed of the two.  He is the Orisa of justice, which is perfectly fitting of one who is able to keep a cool head.

Sango is a good ally to have when decisions of any kind need to be made, especially those that require us to deal with highly emotional people because of his ability to keep us calm.  Many times, the emotional person we need to deal with is ourselves.

There are times when we are down and need to rev up and other times when we need to tone our energy down and be still.  Utilizing Sango’s energy can help to keep us from making extreme moves.  Feelings such as fear, anger, or even an overwhelming feeling of desire, can greatly affect our ability to be objective enough to consider all that we should take into account before making a move.

Imagine that life is a game of chess.  Pieces will be taken.  Rules are in place. Normally in any situation, one person will dominate and one will recede.  With the energy of Sango, we can move in such a strategic fashion, that we are able to understand the thought patterns of our opponents without our emotions getting in the way.

Electricity is energy and it surrounds us at all times.  In a century, where people get so upset that “random” acts of violence are commonplace, we may even want to ask for Sango’s protection from the energy around us or even ask that it stays calm.  There are many more areas in which this energy can help in our everyday lives.  Due to its potential to either sustain life or to destroy it, we would be wise  to learn from one who can guide us in working with this energy.

Orisha songs

This musical journey is a celebration of the launch of the ANU Priesthood Learning series Phase 1. Feed all of the energies with you from the crown of your head to the souls of your feet. In this experience you'll learn how the music speaks to the very nature of the ever-evolving quality of our dear guardian spirits and astral guides.
The music that came forth on this one is a nice laid back, eclectic blend. I have these coded Orisa songs on repeat in the ANU shrine. As it plays, it feeds and reaffirms the union I share with the powerful forces that enter and exit the ANU temple through invocation and evocation.
Take a nice blue bath, light seven candles, close out all artificial light, and vibe out to this audio blend.
You're guaranteed to start seeing things!
