African Rites of Passage/Birth/Marriage/People/Culture

Posted by novakafele on June 4, 2014 at 10:00 PM

 

Ohhhhhhhh what a beautiful website this is explaining the Cultural Rites of Passages and Birthing styles among Afrakan Peoples in the Mother Continent.  It is my purpose that after I complete my studies in midwifery that I travel abroad to help women birth their babies and nurture Mommies through their pregnancies.  Whereeer my Kingman is I will be and I want to be depended upon if there is a Womban in my midst who is either with child, giving birth or both.  I copied and pasted an excerpt from this powerful website so that when this information is read, it will be felt and will motivate the reader to click the link to read on..........



Yoruba

 

AFRICAN PEOPLE | AFRICAN CULTURE | AFRICAN MARRIAGE

 

When a child is born among the Yoruba people, a special ceremony called The First Step Into the World is performed 3 days after birth. The purpose of this ceremony is to determine with the assistance of a babalawo (a priest of Ifa) what sort of person the child will be and to appoint an orisha (divinity) or guardian spirit. Once the father of the child has acknowledged it, the babalawo is consulted to determine which of the orishas will be the child's protector, as well as what is forbidden or taboo to the child. The naming ceremony, called I-komo-jade, a child's first outing or "outdooring" is performed on the seventh day after the birth for girls and on the ninth day for boys. A babalawo performs a purification ceremony called the Iwenumo, which is preceded by sacrifices offered to the deity who protects the child. During the Iwenumo, the babalawo throws consecrated water on the roof of the dwelling. The mother with the child in her arms runs out of the dwelling three times to catch the water falling from the roof. As she does this, the babalawo pronounces the name of the child. A fire that has been lit inside the house is ceremonially extinguished, and the ashes from it are carried outside. Following this, the members of the family give various names to the child while offering it gifts and best wishes.

 

Among the Yoruba people, during the marriage ceremony, the oldest woman in attendance will spray gin (which is closely associated with the ancestors) on the couple and other relatives to bless the new union.

Bedwetting in Our Children

Posted by novakafele on June 4, 2014 at 1:15 PM

I know my daughter who is age 7 now is having issues with bedwetting, but before I opt to giving her frankenmeds, I will try these natural home remedies first and see how she does.  Thought about my Moms & Dads who may someday read this going through the same thing and decided to post.

One Love.

Reiki Balancing Before Conception

Posted by novakafele on May 29, 2014 at 1:55 PM

As a Kemetic Reiki Practioner I combine Energy Healing and Balancing with my Moms and Dads mostly during the pregnancy.  I haven't had a person yet come to me to ask for Energy Balancing prior to conception or even fertility but I invision with the shift that is taking place energetically and spiritually I will have more parents who seek this natural attunement.  This was a thoughtful article concerning preparation and I felt it most appropriate to cast upon the archieve of information here.

Love.

Benefits of Reiki during Pregnancy:

 

Reiki provides emotional as well as physical support to the pregnant woman.

Reiki creates a balanced, loving and harmonious relationship between the mother and the child.

Reiki is practiced in the early days of the pregnancy helps reduce exhaustion and nausea in the pregnant woman.

It also brings relief to every part of a stretched and aching body of the woman.

It also reduces anxiety, sleep problems, colic, and enhances motor activity and active sleep.

Reiki is done to restore the balance and health to the pregnant mother.

Reiki used during labor stage has been shown to control and lessen pain to a greater extent.

Reiki makes delivery easier.

Mothers who have had previous c-sections and receive Reiki in later pregnancies can expect lesser need for cesarean surgeries in the second time.

Mothers who use Reiki during and after pregnancy can better adjust to their babies and vise versa.

After the baby is born, it can be a stressful time for the baby. When Reiki is used in the delivery room it makes an easier transition for the baby.

Reiki also helps to come out of the fears related to pregnancy and delivery. It soothes a woman who feels invaded and impatient to give birth.

Reiki has the power to make a baby wriggle with pleasure in the womb, and also has a calming effect on both the mother and the child.

Reiki provides a unique opportunity, for the father-to-be as he can bond with his baby when it is in the mother’s womb.

It also helps in building a strong and spiritual relationship between the mother and the baby, before this tiny new being enters the world.

If you are attuned, you can give your baby Reiki whenever you hold and nurse it after birth.

The progeny of our species depends highly on what we consume and overall our awareness to the chemical war against the human race. This informative serves as perfect example of chemicals developed over time and their adverse affects on the endocrine systems in our male babies/children especially. This will help my Mommy's select better and choose wiser to the products they use during and after pregnancy.

Our Powerful Glands!

Posted by novakafele on March 12, 2014 at 2:50 PM

Mommy's please read.  Great cleanse before you become pregnant so everything from deep within is clear, light and free!  Love

My last reminder on how important the glands are brings me to the next point. We are approaching the Spring Solstice March 21st and this typically means for me that its clearing time of my body and mind with more raw foods, meditation,pampering, baths, journaling, study and deeper self reflection. We should understand how important our temples functioning properly mean existing here on the planet. For Women who are already Mothers or are planning to become pregnant I would definitely suggest that you begin your clearing process during this upcoming Solstice.

 

GLANDULAR CLEANSE

The night before Gland Cleanse----

Take detox tea, (I use either Yogi or Traditional Medicinal detox teas) 1 gentle herbal laxative like cascara sagrada or Dr. Goss "New Body" products.

 

Depending on the season you can drink watermelon juice only. Drink throughout day to speed alkaline effects in your body. No watermelon?

 

Then try.....

 

Upon rising, take a whole lemon in water 1 tsp raw honey

 

Breakfast---carrot juice with 1 tbsp green superfood

 

Mid Morning---take carrot or mixed veggie drink (add dulse or kelp flakes to veggie drink).

 

Lunch---bowl of miso soup, sprinkle dulse (& nutritional yeast if desired).

 

Mid Afternoon---mixed veggie juice

 

Dinner---Potassium Broth, (see colonic cleanse for recipe).

 

Before Bed---have apple/pineapple or papaya juice and blend a fig if you have one.

 

***Make sure you are at home when you cleanse starting over a weekend so you can be in the comfort of your own space to release waste & rest when needed. Try this for 4 days and increase each time you do it up to 7 days. Get your vitamin C in and your Omegas. Enemas are good too as long as you administer them every other day of your cleanse.

 

MUST drink 8 glasses of water per day to avoid dehydration

you will want to walk for 20 minutes daily

brush your skin to release skin toxins

receive back massage lower back and top of feet for 20 minutes

take spiritual baths in 3-4 drops lemon oil and 2 drops geranium with 2 cups epson salts 2 cups dead sea salts & 1/4 cup baking soda. Or add 2 drops of majoram, lavender, bergamont, chamomile oils and 1 drop ylang ylang oil. Set intention for your bath as you add your oils. What do you want to see for yourself after the bath? Healthy, Healed, Whole, No tension, Anxiety, Disease free, etc. Speak your healing for yourself!!!

 

Visualize your glandular detox happening. See your glands free from blockage, stress and disease. See your body energized, motivated, clear and charged!

 

Introducing solid foods back into your body you want to eat a salad, squash and red onion, a little quinoa, raisins, pumpkin, sesame seeds, dark fruits, sea veggies, moss, bladderwrack, dulce. Continue with fresh juices and smoothies now. Start back eating gradually so you won't shock your body cause remember you just cleaned it out! : )

Start with what you can and do the best with what you have and incorporate more as you go along.

 

Contact me for support whenever you need to, I'm learning and doing right along with you. I am also a produce purveyor, Our Farm is in Bloomington, CA so in the event you'd like to order a produce box and have it delivered to you just let me know.

Mommy's Planning to Breastfeed Please Read

Posted by novakafele on March 9, 2014 at 6:20 PM


The Mammary Glands are profound. Glands period are. When I look at my breasts I see life giving, nurturing parts of the whole that supported someones beginning. Breastfeeding Mommy's should read this especially. It is our duty to protect them as it is all the rest of us while we are here.

Will it forth & it will be.

 

From my readings on our glands I've found that Our glands work at our body's deepest level. Glands are embedded throughout the body. Every biochemical reaction flows with the glands and is said to be a key to our health as we move through this experience.

 

Exocrine Glands

exocirine are regulated by the hypothalamus just as the salivary & MAMMARYS. Mommy's read this!!! They secrete fluids through ducts. endocrine, pituitary, pineal and ovaries emit their secretions, mostly hormones into Our bloodstream and lymph system.

 

exocrine system chemical messengers are hormones who communicate and have a serious effect on both glands.

 

Hormones affect Our moods, Energy levels, Mental alertness, & Metabolism. The secretions of Our glands like:

adrenaline

insulin

thyroid hormones

are extra-ordinarily affected by deficiencies like in minerals & on every level thinkable from environment, foods & poor nutrition, pollutants, etc.

 

Lastly, adrenals get stressed out too. So let us learn what we can regarding our adrenals and how to better support and assist them while we are here.

Healing Properties of Yemoja

Posted by novakafele on March 7, 2014 at 3:10 AM

Yemoja! Give thanks for Our Ocean as she provides thousands of healing cures for us. Take a look at this information and see how that short trip to the beach may help you!  Powerful Vaginal Balancer does her waters contain!

 

All Respect to the Great Mother Healer Yemoja! Any testimonies? I have one. My SUN Zeru has chronic eczema and we know a lot of it has to do with what he eats but even then when we are strict with his dietary intake of yeasty breads and sugars he still flares from what we think to be pollen and allergen microbes in our atmosphere. All I have to do is take him to the beach and let him swim for a while and he clears up. Cause when you think about it, the water is coming through his nose and he is swallowing bits as well. Since he was a toddler he would automatically off the top be drawn to and eat sea weed bulbs from off the shore. My intuition tells me that was and is to satisfy his iodine intake and balance any overage of yeast in his body.

 

So imagine the power of sea water ingested to clear vaginal infections?

 

How has Yemoja helped you and if you haven't had any experiences then do you plan to create some?

See the this link to learn more of the treasures she contains....
