Moon Rituals | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it

Òrìsà Lifestyle does not place high value on any form of astrology. Still, the moon has always been a reliable calendar, whose 28 day cycles are much easier to observe than the 365 day cycles of the sun. Consequently, people who live close to nature, and depend totally on the fertility of the soil, the abundance of the rivers and the rainfall for survival, often depend heavily upon the cycles of the moon. Such people are acutely aware of the miracle of nature and its ability to rejuvenate, in terms of seasons, crops and the animal offspring, at regular intervals. In short, the moon is a strong symbol of fertility abundant creativity.

Spirit of Invincibility

Spirit of Invincibility | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it

Praises of Ifa do not let us know Ifa
Praises of Opele do not let us understand Opele
Cast divination for Orunmila
Who was traveling to Olofin
All the trees on earth were venturing to become Olorun's enemy
Orunmila said: 200 trees who seek to fight Olorun
It is on the way they will remain (i.e., they will not reach their destination)
It is on the way they will return
If the trees grow and grow they will die eventually
The trees will finally decay
Heaven will continue to exist gently
- Holy Odu OkanranOyeku

Invincibility is a choice. Even better stated, invincibility is an awareness. As such, it is not an entirely mental activity, but an ability to be at one with your truth.

The truth of which I speak is what we call ori. The oriki praise poetry of ori teaches us that ori is one's cause and creator. Ori is one's providence. It is the one that fills the breasts with milk even before your birth. It is the perfectly timed manifestation of inspiration and innovation. In exactly the same way that even the tallest trees cannot reach the abode of Olodumare, ori is that dimension of yourself that adversaries can never disturb.

Consider, for example, the life of Nelson Mandela. Over the course of 26 years of imprisonment he must have had millions of opportunities to come unravelled. But instead, he searched within himself to find his personal core. There, Madiba discovered the deeper truth, which was that he was in fact free, but it was his supposed captors who were actually in bondage.

Eventually, he ascended the throne of his own destiny, which included becoming president of South Africa. But beyond the achievement of the title, he has become an icon of spiritual discipline and invincibility.

Dark Moon, Subtle Influence

Dark Moon, Subtle Influence | anything on shamanism | Scoop.it

Generally, the moon represents the mind and the emotions. Unlike the orisa, who have elaborately defined rites and rules of engagement, the moon signifies your intuitive relationship to the divine. One popular song for ori declares that "in the same way that the stars do not depart from the moon, my ori, you must not depart from me." It signifies a natural relationship between you and your spiritual essence. It is not subject to the scrutiny and judgement of others, who would have you conform blindly to their standards. In this way, the moon has a very personal significance to each individual. Of course the sun is very important to us too as it our main source of light, but its light is too intense for you to survive direct exposure. It was because of this reason, in fact, that the moon and stars were chosen to be Orunmila's regents here on earth. And so it is that the moon, who has no light source of its own is the gentle reflection of the soul’s blinding energy. The moon embodies iwa pele, or gentle character. Therefore the Moon indicates our emotional and psychological patterns and tendencies, commonly known as emotional intelligence (EQ).  

 

EQ implies maturity, an ability to excercise patience and reflection, especially in tenuous situations. It is the ability to "read" an individual or an entire room, and adjust from one moment to the next, without losing focus and direction. Great salesmen, public speakers, teachers and performers are steeped in EQ. This is what allows them to engage auduences over extended periods of time without forcing or cajoling them into participation. This subtle influence is the domain of the moon, whose unseen power quiety pulls the waters of the planet from shore to shore. The Orisa Lifestyle Moon Rituals make use of this subtle influence to draw out the optimal energy necessary for you to enjoy breakthrough relationships with your inner spirit, your ancestors and your immediate future.

Seti Gershberg's curator insight, May 2, 2013 9:28 PM

The Inca followed both solar and lunar cycles throughout the year. However, the cycle of the moon was of primary importance for both agricultural activities and the timing of festivals, which reflected in many cases celebrations surrounding animal husbandry, sowing seeds and harvesting of crops. Important festivals such as Qoyllor Riti (Resplendent Snow or Snow Star), perhaps the most important festival given its significance and meaning, are still celebrated on the full Moon.
