YORUBA THEOLOGY


The Yoruba theology resides mainly in the believe of a one God, who created everything that exists. From Him came several energies who take care of every detail of the Universe, those are called by the Yoruban believers, Irunmole and Orishas.In the Yoruba system of belief, before you’re born you have already decided what is going to happen with your life, this happens through Ori, which decide what is going to be the main objective in the new life you’re begining. Using the different energies of the Universe, we can achieve easily the needed balance to get to that final objective pre defined by ourselves, meaning living life in balance, with health, happiness and wealth.Once you come to the earthly plane, your body is formed by three elements: Emí (spirit), Orí (soul) and Ará (body). The Emí and the Orí live inside the Ará but separated. Orí has the knowledge and the wisdom of passed lifes, it keeps closed to ones consciousness until death.Emí allows us to our internal dialogue, it stores memories from this encarnation, and it goes aside from our counsciousness when we incorporate the Orisha, then he goes out the Ará.When we die, Emí and Orí becomes one and leave the Ará who will transform in a dead body (Okú). Once they’re only one energy they’ll wait for the fate that will come to them, meaning returning to Aiyé transformed in an spirit (eggun) and wait for the reincarnation (Atúnwá), or if Aragbá Orún (Way to Orún), to get to the Ará Orún state (habitant of the Orún) with the Orishas. These state is only achieved after several reincarnations, until ones Emí has a state pure enough to become an habitant of Orún.Every dweller of Aiyé, according to their behaviour in life can be considered as an omoluabí or an ajogun. Those who broked the laws and had a despicable behaviour during life, become ajogun or dark spirits, among those are:Iku: The Death. King of the Ajogun.Arun: The disease.Ofo: The greed.Epe: The hatress.Ewon: The selfishness.Egba: The loneliness.The omoluabí are those that were rightous in the life, but anyway commited some mistakes, they’re considered kind spirits and can be adored as family ancestors.

It’s Important that our Queens are aware of the power they hold in their hands to liberate our people. The First thing we have to understand is that White people have always believed and practiced Patriarchy. Why is this important to know? The reason they target Black Men so much, the reason they try so hard to separate Black men from the family is because they are afraid of our power. They believe that only a man could rise and become a threat to overthrowing their system. They are made to believe that only a man can rule. It is this ignorance that our queens need to take advantage of. We have to realize that one of the major reasons Harriet Tubman, Yaa Asantewaa, and women like them were so successful in their revolts was because White people never imagined that a woman could accomplish such things. They thought it was a man leading these revolts and that’s who they focused their attention on. Black Women you can once again make them pay for their ignorance. Africans have always known the power in our queens. You can use this power to help save the race.

Queen Mother Nana Yaa Asantewaa of West Africa’s Ashanti Empire
Yaa Asantewaa was named Queen Mother of the Ejisuhene (part of the Asante or Ashanti Confederacy) by her exiled brother Nana Akwasi Afrane Okpese. Prior to European colonization, the Ashanti people developed an influential West African empire. Asantewaa was the Gatekeeper of the “Golden Stool” (Sika ‘dwa) during this powerful Ashanti Confederacy (Asanteman), an independent federation of Asanti tribal families that ruled from 1701 to 1896.
During her brother’s reign, Yaa Asantewaa saw the Asante Confederacy go through a series of events that threatened its future, including civil war from 1883 to 1888. When her brother died in 1894, Yaa Asantewaa used her right as Queen Mother to nominate her own grandson as Ejisuhene. When the British exiled him in the Seychelles in 1896, along with the King of Asante Prempeh I and other members of the Asante government, Yaa Asantewaa became regent of the Ejisu-Juaben District. After the deportation of Prempeh I, the British governor-general of the Gold Coast, Frederick Hodgson, demanded the Golden Stool, the symbol of the Asante nation. This request led to a secret meeting of the remaining members of the Asante government at Kumasi, to discuss how to secure the return of their king. There was a disagreement among those present on how to go about this. Yaa Asantewaa, who was present at this meeting, stood and addressed the members of the council with these now-famous words: Now I see that some of you fear to go forward to fight for our king. If it was in the brave days of [Osei Tutu], [Okomfo Anokye], and Opoku Ware I, chiefs would not sit down to see their king to be taken away without firing a shot. No European could have dared speak to chiefs of Asante in the way the governor spoke to you this morning. Is it true that the bravery of Asante is no more? I cannot believe it. It cannot be! I must say this: if you, the men of Asante, will not go forward, then we will. We, the women, will. I shall call upon my fellow women. We will fight! We will fight till the last of us falls in the battlefields. With this, she took on leadership of the Asante Uprising of 1900, gaining the support of some of the other Asante nobility.

Our live broadcast of AKANFO NANASOM: Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion is - Dwooda (monday), 9/8/14 - 9pm EST

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/odwirafo/2014/09/09/akanfo-nanasom-ancient-authentic-akan-ancestral-religion—the-abosom

In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion we address the nature and function of the Abosom. The Abosom are the Divine Spirit-Forces that animate Creation. They are the Children of Nyamewaa-Nyame (the Mother and Father Supreme Being). 

We discuss the origin of the Abosom, how they manifested in ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) and how we carried them within our blood-circles as Akanfo to the various parts of the world we migrated to. This includes the forced-migration to the western hemisphere during the Mmusuo Kese (Great Perversity/Enslavement Era). Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) people - and only Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit people - have access to the Abosom wherever we exist in the world. They are assigned to us pre-incarnation.

The Abosom in Akan culture are called Orisha in Yoruba culture, Vodou in Ewe and Fon culture, Arusi in Igbo culture and Ntrw/Ntrwt (Neteru/Netertu) in Kamit. We show how the term Ntr (‘Neter’) was and still is vocalized in Akan as Ntoro (un’-taw-raw).


We will examine our publications:

A Thank You to Our Followers

I would like to thank everyone who has viewed or followed this blog. I created this blog to keep alive some of the most cultural & historical things in the history of people of African descent. A conviction that I came to after learning many new things about African history & black culture that I felt were not as widely learned & talked about as it should be. I looked to the future & saw the beautiful history of our people eventually becoming widely forgotten about, if we as a people don’t embrace it. That was 3 years ago. & since then, I’ve had the privilege of watching 1000s of people embrace the beautiful history of African people by liking or reblogging posts. We must keep our history alive. If you would like a follow back, follow me from my main blog.

Thank you,
