The yoruba had both secular and spiritual writing systems. The spiritual writing systems are all that remains. You will find little of it here (the west). Elders Priests in Nijeria have most of it.

They are then made available to the masses in the marketplace

Below are the Ewe (Herbs) and the Presiding Orisha Governing them.

This is just a small list.

Esu-Elegba(mercury/Gemini/virg o)(Eleggua): All Herbs

Like the Buddist say become Nothing/Neutral.Olodumare is Neutral Universal Energy, because it doesn't have any Consciousness at all, its Completely Neutral, the True Power it's in the NEUTRAL aspect, it's the Universal Energy. The Power is Power, the Power or Universal Energy doesn't know if it's Good or Bad, its Universal Energy, period. That's why this Neutral Universal Energy can be tap for Good or Bad use, by the White Magician or Black Wizard.

Nuetral energy Don't have Ears, that's why it can't answer our prayers, that why they say that Olodumare can't hear your prayers. The Angles/orishas are the ones who can hear our Prayers, the Angels can create wonderful things, because that's how they were created.

You can't Invoke Energies that are more higher that what you need.

I fail to understand the sacrifice too. Why don't you explain it? According to christian doctrine, the Wages of sin is death, so christ died in our place so that we would live foreever. But the the bible says the punishment for sin is eternal suffering in hell to be "tormented forever in the lake of fire". So which one is it? If the punishment is simply "death", then why are people going to be in the lake of fire in eternity? If the punishment is "eternity in hell", what about babies who die, bible says they are wicked and born in sin. so 3,4 year olds who die, how can they go to hell for eternity after living a short time on earth?

If God is omnipotent, omniscient, creator (causa sui or prima causa)
All-loving, all-good, all-merciful, then how can we explain evil?
Does God cause evil?
If God does not cause evil, then who causes it?
Who created this cause of evil?
Was the creator of evil all-knowing, past, present, and future?
Or, is God actually all-good, all-loving and all-powerful but unable to stop evil-- which is patently absurd?
Or, does God not wish to stop evil (22)?

This is the dilemma that the theist has to squarely face! Christianity and other monotheistic religions, conceptualized in this fashion, do not seem to have any easy way of escaping either of the horns of the dilemma or of passing between. If they choose to say that God did not create evil, then it would follow that there either is no evil in the world, which is patently false, unless we redefine our concepts, or that someone else created evil, which means that God did not create everything. Even with this caveat, there would still remain the problem of accounting for who created the creator of evil--or else, evil is self-caused, which is equally unconvincing. If they choose to say that God did not wish to eradicate evil, then it could mean either He lacks the power to do so, or He is sadistic and malevolent, options which are totally unacceptable to the theist. There then seems no way of escaping the problem without either redefining and limiting the attributes of Deity or becoming an atheist, or at least, an agnostic.

The most popular attempt to deal with the problem in Christianity and Islam consists in saying that Lucifer, or Devil, or Satan, who was formerly God's deputy or right-hand angel, is the cause or originator of all evils in the universe. That he used to be a good angel charged with powers second only to that of God, but, that through conceit and conspiracy, he became demonic and totally evil. Thus, although capable of having appearances of temporary goodness, whatever schemes he may conceive are ultimately in the pursuance of his diabolical goals of evil. He is thus the Devil. What a good Christian and Muslim should do then is to bear his/her coat of armour and join God's salvation army and fight against the evil one--Satan, the prince of darkness.

Persuasive and simple as this seems, it cannot escape obvious objections or, at least, rejoinders. If God had been all-knowing and all-good, He would not have created Satan or Lucifer. If, par impossible, He did create Satan in error, then it should not have been too difficult for Him to rectify the error and improve or destroy Satan, unless He is not, contra hypothesis, all-powerful.

I haven't studied the art of magic YET, but i am on the verge of practicing the art of magic. I am 30 years old and i am not satisfied with my financial stability. I am currently working a dead in job and their is so many people depending on me this year that it is becoming frustrating to me.
I am tired of being n this financial debt situation. Recently i have been watching different YouTube video's about witches and i think that i am ready to call on my ancestors for help. What are your thought about this? I am also a christian and n the bible it says not to do this, but people do many things they are not suppose to do.
So n the end only GOD can judge me. Now it is time to take this craft seriously and get my finances & love life in order. I even want to learn a obedient spell so disrespectful men can be submissive to me.
It's absolute bullshit, every study ever undertaken has shown that it is all in the minds of the believer.

Look at it like this, if voodoo magic was so powerful, how come the crackers stole the Blacks for 400 years?

The Druids in ancient Europe believed in magic powers, right until the Romans' wiped out the last few Druidic priests in Angelsey, the Celts still believed that the Romans' would be vanquished by magic powers. Then when the Romans' left, the new Celtic priests said the same thing about the Angle, Jutes and Saxons, who eventually beat their azz again and took the country.

All around the world primitive people believe this nonsense, I was once a Warlock of House Akkadius, just a bunch of fools thinking they had magic powers, and using it as an excuse for debauchery.

If voodoo or any black arts/craft were true, then surely after enslaving Blacks for 400 years the White folks should be cursed, yet, after slavery, they got even more powerful and lead the world in every area of technology...strange kind of curse, huh?

To observe an electron is to modify its behavior. Scientists at the Weismann Institute in Israel have demonstrated (applicable to particles of one macron or smaller) that electrons behave differently when observed. The observer influences the energy, thus effecting changes in the environment. The latest research in quantum mechanics and particle physics attempts to understand this phenomenon. But even with their high-tech equipment, they cannot comprehend what is happening because they are locked in their paradigm. To the shaman, on the other hand, there is no mystery. This is exactly what he does in the other world. He goes to different energy levels which are not observable here, interacts with the energy, and effects changes in this world, such as healing. Shamans have been using their awareness of this principle for about 60,000 years."

The afrocentric spirituality requires the use of Diving ability to know who you are,what your purpose in life is and taking holistic action to acheive that purpose.In other words,the use of Divining Ankh,Crystals,Trance,Draughts, Pendulums,Tarot Cards,Zodiac,Divining Dice,Shells etc,are an essential part of being African.Divining helps to sensualize the body and nutrients in foods for the africans who seek spiritual Endarkenment(erroniously called enlightenment)Unfortunatly,afr icans are taught to ignore a vital part of their spiritualization-Divining.The preachers(christian,Moslem,jew s etc),do not speak directly about Afrocentric rules of spirituality or Divining abili/ties because this would make the follower free of the preacher and religion''.-Llaila O Afrika

Witches in Europe were very superstitious tho. For some reason Europeans viewed African & Native Spirituality as the same as their own even tho it was far from this. I think they simply needed a reason to dismantle their beliefs because they were threaten by their knowledge on herbs & their respect nature itself which conflicted with their agenda too exploit it.

Triceroy and the people that agree with him are products of european imperialism that wants to "demonize" this ancient african esoteric knowledge,such as vodun,kamdomble,unbamda,
palo mayombe etc.The sacred teachings of ifa dates back to kemet,if not longer.
Olokun(pisces) is the patron Orisa of the slave trade.Pisces rules the 12 house of prisons/captivity.
each of us is ruled by a specific Orisa(zodiac), it only describes our "spiritual sponsor" and pre-dispositions. It does not suggest that we stay stagnant in that one energy type. Each Orisa represents one part of a whole. In learning to work all "parts" we become the "whole" Olodumare - which is complete and self sustaining, flexible and enduring.
Since man is two States,finite/infinite in one and Olodumare is the human mind then the mind(Black man/God) has always existed.
The patron Orisa of Europeans is Ogun(mars/Ariesa). They usually display the skewed personality or energy traits of this Orisa. Obsession with technical/physical evolution. Agression. War. Intimidation. War tactician 24/7. Forceful. The Skewed aspects of this Orisa. Hitler was an aries,the Nazis(currently CIA via "opration paperclip")where all about blood/war.
When we study these Orisa in balanced and imbalanced form we gain all we need from the Yoruba Spirituality to understand European and Afrikan interactions. The same can be said when go to the Akan, Vodun or Kemetic cultures.
Racist bulldooky. Europeans are not defined within an African spiritual system, for one thing, since that system evolved without reference to any Europeans.

Europeans as long ago as when Homo sapiens first entered Europe had a system of spiritual beliefs which was not that of Judaeo-Christianity to which you refer. That did not exist at that time. The Semites in the Mideast were pagans just as the Europeans and Africans4

European paganism, as that of India, came to be a syncretism of Aryan with other traditions. The rise of patriarchal imperialism among Aryans and Semites twisted earlier spiritual beliefs and practices into cults suited as handmaidens to imperialism. The latest and greatest of these are Christianity and Islam.

The real spiritual traditions of Europe are of a kind with those of the Yoruba, Lakota, Dravidians, and all other peoples in pre-imperialist circumstances.

All of heaven and earth are the creation of Black people. What is called heaven is a mental state, it's not a physical space 'somewhere'. It exists only in the mind. In scriptures such as the bible and the Koran, the word '"heaven"' is also used to mean the sky.
Einstein’s law of E=MC2 applies only to the physical universe. It does not apply to spirit. It is true that energy cannot be destroyed. That's because energy is a condensation of the mind, and the mind has neither beginning nor end. Therefore energy can be created again and again, without end. And what the black man creates can never be destroyed.

Look at a detailed map of the dominican republic and you'll see a boatload of towns, rivers with Arawak names and some with African names, such as Lemba(egyptian priests) in San Juan de la maguana where my grandmother On father side was from(R.I.P), Marimba(igbo) in Monte plata.The first major slave revolt took place in Dominican Republic's hills in 1522. These Maroons were originally from the senegambian region of Africa; of which most were Muslims of the Wolof nation. Many centuries later the Maroon populations became so large that the only way whites could travel would be in large armed groups. Most of the Maroon populations established themselves in mostly in rivers, hills/mountains, coastal and in caves. The Congolese people were known to be very aggressive and naturally strong, they and many of the Mandingas, Wolofs, and Fulanis were the main ethnicities to have been born in Maroon villages.
Akan, Yoruba, Igbo, Ewe, Fon, Mandinga, Wolof-Fulanis and Others. The Congolese-Bakongo tribes has had the most dominant culteral impact in the Dominican Republic today.
Many villages among the Dominican Republic have kept their African languages among their descendants. Recongnized African languages spoken by Dominicans are the Lucumi language which is practically the Yoruba language with very few Spanish words, the Kikongo language is still spoken, especially in places like Villa Mella, Dajabon, Altagracia, and Monte Plata. Merengue is the typical music of the Dominican Republic, it is believed that the origins of merengue camefrom a mixture between predomanitely Congolese origins along with some Igbo and Yoruba influences. Typical Dominican foods such as Mangu (mashed plantains) is of African origin.
Palo itself is an umbrella name for different african music styles, which can include Sarandunga, Salves, Baile Congo, Congo de Villa mella, and others that are unknown.
the Drums that people call palo drums are alachuetes are mainly of Kongo origin and use goat skin. Balsie and Mongo are also of Kongo origin. There is also the Marimba which is from the same region of Africa. We uniquely have the survival of one of the few cord instruments brought by africans and it is called the Gayumba and it somewhat resembles the Brazilian berimbau. The Traditional Dominican Tambora is of Igbo origin
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =gPEEFS7RQKgXX
Such a mix of African ethnicities in Hispaniola is consonant with the history of the slave trade.

If, as you have wrongly asserted, Africans/Moors had been in America pre-1492, the Africans found in America would be grouped differently, people from one region being together.

An example of this are the Malayan component of the Malagasy. They do not represent a scattered and diverse southeast Asian ancestry, but rather people from one area, who travelled to Africa.

But in America, we see a scattering of exactly the groups the Euros were slaving.

There is no evidence of any Africans in America before 1492.

There are many kinds of intelligence but only one truth. There are also many spirits. I don't call Vodun, aka building a fire, dancing around it, cutting off a chicken's head and splashing the blood into the fire and chanting up demons any kind of healthy spirituality, but that's just me. The Bible states that the spirit is in the blood of a person and we are not to handle or ingest the blood. When it leaves the body, it is considered dead and unclean to God. As unclean as the spirits Voodoo practitioners manage to drum up.

1st thing's 1st. There is no hell. Hell as a term and concept was transplanted, a lie perpetrated by the Hellenists of Greece and expounded upon by European folklore, it culminating in Dante's Inferno. Paul tried to approach the Greeks, via the Cretin Islands but they drove him off, seeking to devour him. Eventually, though they began to take to the teachings of Jesus but chose to twist them, introducing the Greek hades to their doctrine, along with another name for it, hell.

The original Hebrew word that was replaced with hell is "Sheol" which simply means "the grave". God did not tell Adam that if he sinned, he would suffer eternally in flames, he told him that he was made from the dust and to the dust he would return. This is in stark contrast to the many lies told by European Christendom, the main gripe the world has with it and one reason why God has rejected it, along with these corrupt human rulerships.

Psalm 146:4 His spirit departs, he returns to the ground; In that very day his thoughts perish.

Notice the word "return". You can't return to a place you've never been and since we were all once dust, it means that when we die we'll go nowhere else but to the grave. The spirit that departs is God.

Genesis 6:3
Then the LORD said, "My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years."
