"My Voice" Weblog By Miss LaToya Lawrence

coconutsI stay close to Elegba as we have a special bond that no one can break, he is one of my African soldiers, the chief among the others yet all of them maintaining their high roles, whether it is my Goddess Oshun, right hand man Ogun, grandfather Orunmila or backup man Ochosi.

I love Elegba, he is and has been so good to me, and it is unbelievable.

Never have I been able to trust so loyally within a divine spirit to do right by me than he and my other specific Orishas that reside within and around my life and upon the universe, not to mention all of the truth , guidance,  love and respect that they have all expressed to me.

I am still amazed whenever Elegba occasionally shows and let’s me know when his powerful spirit is surrounding me by giving me signs, whether he turned on…

So Lovely

So Lovely

It’s amazing and beautiful how essence surrounds and envelops one with support and protection; the nurturing, the preservation, the love and the certainty.

I feel good and I maintain a positive outlook.

The concrete foundation proves to serve as an authentic life fulfilling purpose within its specific design.

It is loyal and fully consistent. Oh, so lovely and generous. It is all worthwhile.

I just had to give and show praise and appreciation unto the nature behind it.

Thank You So Much.

Working Woman By Miss LaToya

My mother had me when she was twenty-two years old and we became very close as we bonded immediately after I was born.

We’ve been through a lot together enduring circumstances in which many would not have survived and coming out sustained within a fashion that has caused some to wonder and to be amazed.

My mother and I have battled a very long way from the negativity directed towards us by envious, jealous, and unsavory people in specific.

My mother and I both constantly held our ground and we continue to stand.

Hooray to Peace, power, love, and protection.

Praise To My Ancestors And Orishas

Praise To My Ancestors And Orishas


I do come from a very good, strong, loving, tight/close knit and successful large family, however, growing up I wasn’t around most of them since they were all spread out living within different vicinities, and some of my earlier relatives had already passed away.

My grandmother (Catherine Lawrence) wouldn’t keep in contact with many of them when they use to call her all of the time.

It wasn’t until she had a stroke when she tried to reach back out to a lot of them decades ago far before she died. I still have a lot of family in which I personally don’t know and have never met because my grandmother didn’t maintain those relationships.

Nevertheless, I’m very lucky and blessed and I feel very fortunate to have my ancestors and orishas around me to watch over and protect me.

It’s very heartwarming and honorable as they knew upon my childhood that many of the people around me and that I’d eventually come into contact with growing up (including other specific family members) during and through out the years up into my adulthood weren’t shit, and would turn out to be nothing and no good, and also the outrageous shit in which I would have to go through and endure with unsavory and unsavvy people as well as all of the undesirables.

They knew how I would need and deserve the proper assistance and positivity within my corner along with truth and sincerity by my side to successfully lead, guide, and see me through to a better quality of life.

My ancestors and orishas have always known that I was a worthy and valuable individual with backbone, knowledge, and depth of character. I was one of them, one of their very own, and loyal beings as us within family and nature constantly have each others backs.

If I wasn’t a good person aligned within the balance of my own right and unconventionality I wouldn’t have always been so deeply connected and respected within spirit.

Automatically and inevitably, I deeply respect and connect to the extraordinary circumstances in which I am surrounded by.

There is so much love and appreciation that I hold dear and close to my heart in response to all of the solicitous and favorable treatment and regard in receipt from my ancestors and orishas. Not to mention the extra advantages within dimension by the momentous generosity of the universe.

The Love For Oshun

The Love For Oshun

Orisha Oshun has treated me lovely she’s been so very nice and caring toward me.

Oshun had even shown benevolence toward Brandie, my beloved dog who I possessed for seventeen years, before I had to put her to sleep due to arthritis in the legs and because she would no longer eat or urinate and move her bowels.

Years ago, Oshun showed me a vision of her and brandie lounging serenely on a beach on the sand. Oshun relaxed upon a comfortable lounge chair with her legs and feet propped up while brandie was stretched out beside her watching the tides come in to shore.

It was such a beautiful sight to view. The sunlight was beautiful, just the two of them alone, enjoying the still of the day.

 Aside from watching out for my pet in the afterlife Oshun has equally watched out for me at numerous times here on the earth, warning me against certain dangers and insuring that I was sufficiently provided for within the things that I needed.

One time I was so tired and didn’t light a candle for Oshun as I’d faithfully do on her day of the week in honor of the Orisha and I had felt so bad and expressed it out loud to a relative.

Within a short time after, a voice spoke to me uttering out the words, “Oshun loves you”, and the feeling and sensation that had come along with it was one of an attentiveness.

The courteous expression served as an acknowledgement to me at how Oshun was more preoccupied with the genuine devotion that was within me compared to the outward expression of a well-meaning gesture.

She didn’t care about the candle that I was too tired to prepare and burn she cared about me for being real and for being good within intention.

 

My Altar

My Altar

I’ve set up quite a few altars within my lifetime with the aid and essence of “spirit” carefully guiding and motioning my steps.

 I’d actually feel and sense the energy of my ancestors and deities, and, if my deities weren’t pleased with something they’d let me know as to confirmation to the things I may have suspected beforehand as well as to what they were content with in regards to our own simultaneous commonality.

I had learned that my orishas and I shared the same features and attributes of particular behavior and attitude.

It is a wonderful and lovely fashion in which to connect, communicate, and acquire, personally and supernaturally.

 Set aside a certain area most suitable and preferable to your liking and accord. The location of the altar can be established and situated anywhere one feels comfortable to prepare their spiritual vessel of dedication.

Upon the altar may be placed anything necessary in reference and into relation to who and what is being venerated and communicated with.

In addition, inner voice of spirit as well as spirit guides will further direct and navigate within accordance to other requirements and development.
