Erele/February: Money, resources, investment According to Yoruba thought, money is a deity. Her name is Aje, the daughter of Olokun. Aje is the indispensable one, the key to physical as well as spiritual progress. The importance of understanding the divine essence of money cannot be overstated. All the divinities of orisa lifestyle have their own ojubo (shrine). The ojubo not only represents the divinity, it is also the place you go to invoke the divinity for guidance and protection. In this light, you learn that, instead of praying FOR money - or even worse, praying TO money - it is best to invoke the spirit of Aje to activate prosperity in your life, according to divine principles. In this way, you develop a relationship with money that is in alignment with the spiritual laws that govern the universe. Ifa teaches us that people are called eniyan, the chosen ones. We are all selected by Olodumare to bring about the Good Condition.
The purpose of the Erele/February full moon ritual is to make money work for the Good Condition. Money has historically been a problem where there are no clearly defined values. For this reason, the ritual is organized around six core values: - Giga | Elevation: Money is meant to serve the highest intentions of the human spirit. - Otito | Trust: People are best served when the use of money is based on long-term relationships. - Afarabale | Discipline: Economic success will be defined by balancing social, spiritual and ecological impact, not by financial results alone. - Egbe | Networks: The strategic integration of social networks will be increasingly important in the circulation of money. - Aseyori | Innovation: A deeply entrepreneurial culture is required to generate breakthrough ideas at the intersection of social change and finance. - Idogba | Equality: All who seek to align their values with their money will be granted access to opportunities for investing, lending, and giving.
In this ritual you will receive - purification rites that cleanse and empower the spirit of Aje - divination and spiritual discourse pertaining to wealth (i.e., resources, investment, saving) - spiritual preparations (e.g., protective charms, herbal infusions, altar items)
