Ori and Eji Ogbe
 
Reading archived material about Unle Meji tonight, I found the following stanzas from traditional Ifa regarding the head, named ori. Whenever I find verses that move me, I save them for study. The following two lives I've used often as a mantra of sorts when meditating; I say them slowly, stretching then out to slow my breath:

Orí kóo dá mi re. Òrisà má jèé n sòwò àsenu 

Orisa do not let me labor in vain  Ori bless me abundantly

 Although this is not a blog about Ifa, a conversation I had with a student tonight made me think this might be a useful post to some.

Everyone
Pledge $0.01 or more per month
Patrons Only

While there might not be a new opening for patrons receiving magickal fragrances s a reward, there are plenty of openings for patrons who only want to read my blog. Two or three times a week I'll be writing about life, magick, the religion, magickal fragrances I'm creating or compounding -- really, you might be able to find almost anything here. But you will have to subscribe to read it. So click the button, grab your mouse, and scroll through what's here. And remember: I'm not referred to as the godfather of scandal (and all things scandalous) for nothing! 


Welcome to my magickal world
$32.50 or more per month
Welcome to simplicity. One tier. One bottle. A great, organic fragrance with a lot of magick. Every month, Patreon will charge you for your pledge on the first, and from the 25th of that month to the 3rd of the next month patron rewards will ship.

Other perks: you will have access to my blog (I'll be writing about magick), and you'll get 10% discounts on Hippy Witch products and other magickal fragrances. 


Keep in mind that magick, real magick, is a very active process and I can only take care of so many. There is a limit to this tier. 


Also, please understand I cannot do international shipping. The paperwork, the cost, it's too complicated for a one-man show. 


Consider joining my level for blog access only. That way, when an empty seat comes available you will receive immediate notification. 


Thank you for being a patron.
