Spiritual Rights of Passage: Omo Osun, Seven African Powers, Orí,& Esu Elegba/Warriors
My Osun is held in my hand . . .
A message for all readers concerning Orí:
Orí (Orē) is the African concept of one’s higher self.
We all have an Orí.
The Orí is also the entity that we consult first in any endeavor.
My personal Orí has led me to beading.
Above: My personal Orí Pot
I love beads in all shapes, forms, and fashions.
Beads not only hold inherent energy and value, beads and beaded items have a rich and far reaching history. Through out the ages, beads have been used for adornment and artistic expression, as well as currency.
This vivid tradition is a part of my soul.
My Orí, my higher self, has led me to the world of beads.
There is no turning back.
