    Episode 38 - A Iyawo's Journey

    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.

    Episode 34 - Top 10 Reflections of 2019 and Lessons Learned

    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...

New Comer

As a new comer and eager student I feel that Iya has helped me take things slow and with her tools that she provides on her site I’m taking a better look at me so one people don’t blacklist me or take me the wrong one or not take me seriously. She is very friendly and her energy is so dope

Listen!

Thank you. I have spent a lot of time tip toeing around diving in more because I know there are spiritual laws that matter like introduction, education, preparation, support and acceptance. I feel a pull but I know better.

Your Shrine, Oh My episode is necessary. I keep sharing with others searching like me, so that we can take the right steps.

Blessing sis and thank you.
