Philly’s 43rd Odunde Festival celebrates African spirituality and cultural connection : Community : WHYY


Ask most Philadelphians to name a holy place and the Schuylkill River is unlikely spring to mind.

But at the Odunde festival in South Philly on Sunday, that tributary of the Delaware became a kind of altar as practitioners of Ifa, a belief system related to the Yoruba religion of Nigeria, processed to the South Street Bridge where about a hundred people gathered to celebrate Osun, the river goddess, as a way to welcome the Yoruba new year.

Mostly wearing white and yellow dresses and tunics, their hair covered by colorful wraps, fedoras, and sunhats, the crowd sang and danced down South Street, led by the rhythm of drums and shekeres — West-African shakers made from gourds. After reciting prayers thanking Osun, small children, alongside grandparents and cousins, were…

Nigerian chief speaks on African spirituality in Germantown | News


GERMANTOWN >> It is not every day that a West African chief speaks at a Northwest Philadelphia venue when he is town for speaking engagements at Temple University in North Philadelphia or in Center City.

That is why Ife Changa, of Germantown, made it a point to be at the lecture at the MKA Institute, 5535 Germantown Ave., Germantown, on a recent Tuesday evening. For her, hearing Nigerian Chief Ifayemi Elebuibon was one of the highlights of her 25-year journey exploring indigenous African faiths.

Changa readily admitted she has never been initiated into any particular African faith. She was first introduced to West African spirituality when her husband and her when to a traditional Haitian Voudon…

African Spirituality Formed a Backdrop to the African American Environmental Experience – GIPL


By Valerie Rawls

I am the granddaughter of a preaching Mississippi sharecropper, who was the son of enslaved and emancipated parents. My grandfather straddled two cultures–one African with limited to no ties to Africa, and the other American.  Sharecroppers, like Africans believed in the interconnectedness of the human, spiritual, and environmental realms and believed that harming or caring for one affected the other. My grandfather taught my father to always respect and care for Creation.  My father maintained his respect for nature while navigating the evolving cultural and social construct of the great migration to the North.  My father often told stories about how beautiful nature was in the South, but they were overshadowed by the brutality that took place in nature.  Those…

How To Self-Heal

How To Self-Heal

The human body is an instrument whose health is in a constant state of flux. Its health depends on factors that are widely misunderstood therefore most times we only pay attention to our mental and physical health when we get sick. There are steps however, that Afrakans can take to enhance and protect our overall health to prevent sickness and disease. We can do so be learning how to self-heal.

Self-healing is not a new concept therefore some of the methods involved in self-healing are already widely practiced. Those methods include getting enough sleep, eating healthy, physical exercise, mental exercise, and meditating. Another less known self-healing method involves getting help from the Spiritual essence of the universe through our Brain and since Afrakans still have a functioning energy receptor, this will also help to keep it functional. This method is called the Dohgon self-healing method.  

Life expectancy for Afrakans varies from between 65 to 85 years depending on genetics, culture, and regional environmental factors. Of course, there are some who beat the odds and live longer but aside from war and crime, these are factors that cannot be easily altered or controlled. Some Afrakans are born with genetic illnesses that will either have an immediate or long-term effect on their health. Most illnesses however, are acquired over time due to ignorance and willful self-harm.

For instance, there are activities that we engage in at work or in general, and food that we eat that is harming us but we don’t realize it because society in general is also ignorant of their effects. There are businesses that operate for “profit over health”, that willfully produce chemically harmful foods for us to eat. Then there are other activities we engage in such as; smoking, using harmful drugs or even over-eating, that we know is harming us yet we refuse to stop it because it makes us feel good.

The Doghon Afrakan method of self-healing is a method that involves improving the Mind which, in turn will improve the health of the Brain and Body. This method involves naturally improving your Brains’ ability to produce the healing hormone Melatonin. Melatonin is a neurotransmitter that acts within Cells to repair and improve their functionality. The result is that Cells will do a better job fighting disease and the harmful effects that other hormones may have on them.    

There is an abstract energy receptor inside the Brain of all animals. That energy receptor is called the Pineal Gland. Europeans regard this energy receptor as a useless gland that was made redundant by evolution. Why did they conclude that, you might ask? The reason they came to that conclusion is because theirs is virtually nonfunctional. It is a conclusion born out of defective logic and understanding of the Spiritual essence of the universe.  

The Pineal Gland in Europeans is defective due to Calcification caused by genetics and white noise radiation. Unfortunately, the Pineal Gland is also the primary producer of Melatonin in the human body. Europeans have recently begun to change their views of the Pineal Gland due to a recognition of the importance of Melatonin in self-healing. In the meantime, as an alternative to natural Melatonin, they are making pills comprised of synthetic or harvested Melatonin from animals.

To begin your self-healing process using the benefits of Melatonin there are several things that you must do every night as night time is when the Pineal Gland produces Melatonin. Some people believe that the Pineal Gland just needs darkness but that’s not true because of the Sun. The goal is to get proper sleep by going to bed at a decent time, preferably a few hours before midnight and get at least 7 hours of sleep.  While you sleep there should be no White Noise distractions from TVs, radios, or any form of Light from digital clocks and night lights.

Before you go to sleep you need to quiet your Mind of the day’s activities as much as possible. An effective way to do this is to use the Dohgon Flux number counting as a meditation. Do this meditation by simply sitting at the edge of your bed and while all Light and Sound distractions are eliminated, do the count inside your head. Your thoughts may drift because of mild memories or traumatic stress but if you can’t calm your thoughts while doing the count, don’t worry about it too much.

While you are sleeping your Pineal Gland will activate and begin to produce Melatonin using the Spiritual Energy it is collecting from the Pure Dark Universe. The Melatonin will travel all throughout your body to heal and repair your damaged Cells. You may not notice the improvement right away but over time this Dohgon self-healing method will help to improve your overall health.

What Is A Total Solar Eclipse?

The Cosmogonic or Dark Universe

On August 21st, 2017, a total Solar Eclipse will occur in selected areas of the United States. Other areas of the country will witness partial eclipses of various degrees. Not surprisingly, this solar phenomenon has many people excited to witness this once in a lifetime event.

While it maybe entertaining for some, a Total Solar Eclipse has special meaning for Dohgons and all AfRAkans. Here is an excerpt from a question and answer session between Mighty Queen and Professor MOmOh regarding the meaning and benefit of the Total Solar Eclipse.       

The 2017 Total Solar Eclipse of the U.S.:

The Spiritual Magnetism of Darkness for Peace happens by synchronizing your 2 brain hemispheres

 

MQ: Mighty Queen 06390

PM: Professor MOmOh

 

MQ:  What is a total, solar eclipse?

 

PM:   A total, solar eclipse brings Darkness to daylight, which humanity must appreciate to fully understand how important its 2 brain hemispheres are needed to acquire peace.

 

MQ: A total, solar eclipse will be crossing the U.S. on August 21, 2017. The eclipse will make a rare 2,500-mile coast-to-coast journey across the U.S. from Oregon to South Carolina on that day. This will bring total Darkness to various cities along its path. What does this total eclipse indicate about the Spiritual Magnetism of Darkness for Peace?

 

PM:        Darkness always indicates Peace. Anything that happens with Darkness indicates there is an effect of peacefulness that follows it as well. Therefore, the total solar eclipse passing through the U.S. indicates how the U.S., itself, is now ready to exercise a peaceful transition from where peace is now paramount in the minds of many people. This means that the intention of people is peace, instead of war.

 

        War kills a lot of innocent people. Now, the total eclipse is telling us that no more war is necessary because the eclipse, itself, is now bringing NIGHT during daytime. And NIGHT means the synchronization of your two brain

        hemispheres, which indicates calmness, peacefulness and TRUTHFULNESS in everything you do.

 

MQ:  Why does Darkness always indicate peace, and what is the relationship of Darkness to the synchronization of your two brain hemispheres?

 

PM:   Your two brain hemispheres are your left and right brain hemispheres. When they are well-synchronized, your two brain hemispheres are both coordinated in whatever you THINK about. Your THINKING, then, becomes very active and willing to pursue good and clean things that keep you very peaceful in everything you do.

 

        Darkness always indicates peace because everything in Darkness is quiet and willing to remain peaceful until daylight appears. During daylight, humanity is awake and anxious to get things done very quickly.

 

        So anxiety exists during daytime and quietness exists during nighttime. This is the reason why, when the total solar eclipse occurs during daytime, humanity must exercise the peacefulness that happens at night. This is why the Universe is making daylight disappear for that period of time throughout the U.S. during the total eclipse.

 

        Humanity must, therefore, learn that the time for peace is now reachable to everyone, and that the period of war is over because those who pursue war are now leaving that direction of thinking for war. Thus, those who are seeking peace are increasing in numbers. Very soon, there will be no interest in wars anymore because those who pursue wars are now being pushed aside, and they are no longer in that position to make choices to go to war.

 

MQ: So the message of the upcoming total solar eclipse that will cross the U.S. is one that is energized for humanity to THINK peacefully by coordinating their left and right brain hemispheres?

 

PM:   Yes, the thinking is not just superficial, but one that people have seriously thought about expressing. It is the desire to let other people begin to THINK similarly that peace matters. It’s no longer an expression where people have to make songs about peace and do nothing about how the peace itself is made tangible for actions to manifest.

 

        Humanity must understand why Nature is making the appearance of the total solar eclipse happen throughout the U.S. Is it happening because of a natural request by humanity itself or is it happening because Nature, itself, needs to make darkness happen during daylight?

 

        The eclipse has to enforce the conscious awareness of an attitude that must now make itself very clear that peace has to exist for people to express themselves without any limitations.

 

MQ:  How will people begin to synchronize their two brain hemispheres in order to bring this renewed THINKING process of calmness, peacefulness and TRUTHFULNESS to the Universe?

 

PM:        These peaceful qualities are always present with people who seek TRUTH. When TRUTH is a part of your THINKING, you will always be very cordial to other people… and their peaceful interests are also your own interests. There is already a connection between you and them. They are not different from you, and you are not different from them.

 

        Synchronizing your two brain hemispheres is an easy process for humanity to accomplish. All that’s required is activating the logic of your left brain to connect with your mind. Your mind will transfer that logic to your Spirit, which will include the Spiritual Magnetic qualities of the Universe into your Spiritual qualities, and then transfer that information back to your mind.

 

        When that information is now in your mind, it becomes an intelligent and creative energy that will help you acquire WISDOM. WISDOM is necessary for you to express what you can do to help others.

 

        The reason why WISDOM is necessary is because it goes through your Spiritual system, which is internal to you. When that internal, Spiritual system of your WISDOM is activated, everything becomes expressed within you externally. Now you can see how your creativity and intelligence happen easily. This ability becomes so great within you that you are able to help others acquire their own creative forces without any struggle. You are now a person of great WISDOM who others will respect.

 

        Through the physical connection that your synchronized left and right brain hemispheres now have with the Spiritually Magnetic qualities of the Universe, you are no longer in a position to impose yourself on people who haven’t offended you in anyway to start wars with them. You will always stand by your own TRUTH, and you will not compromise with those who need to go to war with others. You’ll always be very strong to express the TRUTH of the Spirituality of your mind, rather than the imbalanced and unstable emotions of your right brain.

 

MQ:  When will humanity as a whole begin to THINK by uniting their two brain hemispheres so that peace is now a common factor in people’s lives throughout the world?

 

PM:        People’s lives are valued when they have a purpose in life. If the purpose is to determine how each person succeeds and that success transfers to other people, then there will be a common vision where humanity as a whole begins to benefit by the success of individual people. So people are going to succeed in life. But this success is going to happen when there is a determination for other people to be part of the success of what individual people accomplish in life. When that success becomes universal, other people will rise to the joy of success as well.

 

        The joy of success will pass on to all individuals where success becomes a common result that allows people to also be a part of a whole. Once people see the whole exists that affects them as well, then success is no longer an individual matter. Rather it becomes a general and holistic matter that engulfs everyone.

 

        Everything will now be considered holistic. So the success of one person becomes the success of a whole community. This is not a communist doctrine. Rather democracy will still exist in the minds of people, and they will practice democratic views where people are helped to rise to the same level of success that other individuals have.

 

        Here, nobody becomes over wealthy. But it is a condition where wealth becomes a common condition that everyone is pleased to have.

 

        When a whole community of people is pleased to have wealth, then there won’t be people who are poor and begging for existence. Here, everyone will maintain a decent way of living and there won’t be any conditions that are managed by others so that those conditions are only appreciated by people who become affiliated with what has been established for their advantage.

 

        Everyone has the same advantage as everyone else. So all people are privileged to be a part of the success that has been arranged. People are no longer individually successful, but the success is organized for all to have.

 

        THINKING will only happen for peace to occur when all people THINK about peace. When that THINKING continues to occur in people’s minds, then there will be more concern about peace than the emotions that take people’s minds away from their logic.

 

        In order to synchronize your two brain hemispheres, you must be highly aware of the logic that occurs in your left brain, rather than the emotions of your right brain. Once you express the logic of your left brain, like the Earth is doing now, with the total solar eclipse that will bring Darkness, or Spiritual Magnetism, across the U.S. during daytime, you are also attracting the importance of your THINKING to become Spiritually Magnetic so that others can be attracted to the magnetic qualities of the Universe as well.

 

        Many people who will read what we are stating here will immediately say we don’t know what we are talking about, and that there is no way to relate what humanity does to what happens in the Universe. We all are aware of how the Earth will display the eclipse and how it will extend from Oregon to South Carolina. When the Universe expresses its own desire to affect what happens between day and night, what makes us doubt that the Universe will not affect the way humanity THINKS about uniting itself. These are conditions that occur, whether we like it or not.

 

        Some people will desire wars because their two brain hemispheres are lacking the synchronicity to be in agreement for peace with other people. This does not mean that all of humanity is thinking that ways. There are people like us who demand peace. And, therefore, we will acquire peace regardless of what others think.

 

        When that requirement for peace becomes real, we shall continue to strive for everything that unites us, just like the Universe, itself, is united to bring total Darkness to daylight during the total solar eclipse.

 

        We, who are concerned about the selfishness of other people needing to deny the unity of humanity to bring peace and gracefulness to humanity, will never quit our unity expressing itself to bring people together so that their common interest is unifying people’s two brain hemispheres to always seek calmness, peacefulness and TRUTHFULNESS.

 

        When people are now in unity, it means that their two brain hemispheres are all united to see the TRUTH coming to humanity as a whole. As a result, humanity will understand that unity now is paramount to everything that happens to them.

 

        People will care about their fellow citizens, and those who were struggling to provide for themselves, will no longer struggle because other citizens will care for them. This does not mean, however, that you have a whole group of citizens that will be dependent on others to exist. Rather you’ll have citizens showing joy because they, who were once struggling, are now helping others become independent in whatever is necessary for them to do.

 

        If you worry about the essence of losing what you have collected for all these years, you shouldn’t be afraid of what will happen to you, because the Universe will ensure that what you have now, you will always have. And you will have the ability to gather even more because your potentials will increase to acquire more so that you can give away more to other people who do not have as much as you do.

 

MQ:  How can humanity overcome the insecurities that single-brain thinking encourages?

 

PM:        Humanity must be willing to see the peace within the Darkness of the total eclipse. The fact that the total solar eclipse is crossing the U.S. from its west coast to its east coast indicates the Universe, itself, is involved in making that peace very clear to all of humanity.

 

        The Darkness that will express itself across the U.S. during daytime on August 21, 2017 indicates the ability to overcome falsehoods and lies that have always preceded warfare. When people are bold enough to stand tall about the lies that have always preceded warfare, now people will wake up to no longer accept the falsehoods that entangle the lies that precede warfare.

 

MQ:  The last total, solar eclipse that crossed the U.S. occurred 99 years ago. That was in 1918. We all know how many wars have occurred since that time and how many millions of lives have been lost to all the wars that have occurred since then.

 

        Will humanity’s THINKING really expand beyond the limitations of it emotional, single-brain THINKING? And what will people 99 years from now be saying about what we, as humans, did or didn’t do to overcome the insecurities of the our past 99 years (1918-2017) to acquire the Spiritual Magnetism and peace within our THINKING? Will people in the future say that we recognized the value of the total solar eclipse that appeared right in front of our eyes here in the U.S. on August 21, 2017?

 

        Or, will they say that humanity fell right back into another 99 years filled with warfare due to its same individualistic and greedy concerns?

 

        Is humanity at a critical mass point in time? Will humanity as a whole really have the ability to synchronize its two brain hemispheres to THINK with the Spiritual Magnetism that is required to bring 99 years of peace, rather than warfare, to our future?

 

        Also, what is the significance of the number 99?

 

PM:        Humanity will not solve the problems that exist in the universe now because there is still greed that surrounds human thinking. As long as there is greed, there will always be the need for humans to seek what is available for their best interests.

 

        When people think for what they can do for themselves, rather then what they can do for other people, there is a big problem. That problem is then confided in their ability to only use one brain hemisphere, instead of the two brain hemispheres.

 

        When people are confined to one-brain thinking, there is always the need to seek only individual thinking, rather than the thinking that will benefit a whole lot of people. This is why, to solve any problems that we are facing now, we need people’s commitment to deal with individualistic, one-brain thinking as a problem. And this problem must be solved with people understanding the coming total solar eclipse in the U.S.

 

        If enough people wake up to the message of Darkness (or Spirituality) that the total eclipse represents, we’ll have a good opportunity to begin to overcome impending problems.

 

        Yes, humanity is at a critical mass point in time because everything happening is overwhelming for humanity. So if things continue to overwhelm humanity, then humanity’s THINKING is now at a critical mass point. This means that humanity is no longer effectively THINKING. Then something has to happen to human THINKING as well. This means that, just like the eclipse that will happen on August 21, 2017 in the U.S., an eclipse will also happen to humanity’s THINKING in a different way.

 

        Humanity will no longer have the freedom to assume that everything it does is approved by whoever it thinks is there to support its ability to act foolishly.

 

        Humanity must continue to THINK as if the Universe needs the care that it must exhibit, rather than some foolishness about what humanity can or cannot do.

 

        Humanity must engage its two brain hemispheres to consider that whatever happens on Earth is under the auspices of the Spiritual Magnetism of Darkness within the Universe. That ability of Spiritual Magnetism emerges from human THINKING by synchronizing the two brain hemispheres. If, however the two brain hemispheres are not organized, then turmoil will prevail.

 

        Humanity is no longer in that capacity to exercise turmoil in its brain hemispheres because what is happening with the eclipse in the U.S. is a warning for humanity to organize itself to ensure that peace is always within their reach.

 

        Number 99 represents the transition of what is happening physically to translate into something new Spiritually. Will that newness be valid for humanity to initiate changes in what it will manifest in its coming existence? That’s a question that humanity has to answer for the coming generations. If the question is answered well, then the coming generations will not worry much about what the question signifies.

 

        However, if the question is not answered well, then it becomes a problematic condition that will happen over and over again.

 

MQ:  What should people be concentrating on during the Darkness of the total solar eclipse that will cross the U.S.?

 

PM:   The best thing that people can become involved with is the Dohgon Meditation. The Dohgon Meditation is very clear and simple. All it has to do with is NUMBERS. People must meditate by COUNTING from 0-100 and 100-0. This must be done during the time Darkness persists during daylight during the total solar eclipse that will be crossing the U.S. It will be wise, however, to continue the Meditation even when the eclipse is over.

 

        The Dohgon Meditation is practiced by COUNTING the numbers from 0-100 and 100-0 three times a day in the morning upon waking, at noon, and before going to bed. This is necessary for all of humanity to connect with its Spirituality and also help synchronize your two brain hemispheres.

 

        There is a special flux method of COUNTING that is used by the Dohgon. To find out more about this method, please see the “Books” section of our website and consider purchasing, Dialing Your Mind with NUMBERS.

 

MQ:  What will counting the numbers do for humanity?

 

PM:   The numbers will create a bridge between people and their Spirits. The more you are connected to your Spirit, the easier it is to understand how the Spirits are your ANKHcestors (ancestors), and you have the ability now to link with them and to know how their presence in the Spiritual World is helping you also to connect with your Spirituality. This takes away the fear on your mind so that you can become mentally strengthened so that your two brain hemispheres can become well synchronized and balanced.

 

MQ:  How can people be very confident about themselves in practicing the Dohgon Meditation, as well as synchronizing their two brain hemispheres?

 

PM:   Once you understand the purpose of synchronizing your two brain hemispheres, you will always be settled, instead of overwhelmed with pursuing your purpose. You will now be very confident within yourself to know that everything you are doing is organized and its purpose is consistent.
