Roots Reading – Learning Your True Afrikan Identity Through the Afrikan Oracle of Ifa

One of the biggest questions as well as dilemmas, for New Afrikan people, is the issue of “Who am I really?” The big business of DNA testing has really been racking in riches based upon the hunger of New Afrikan people to reconnect with their Afrikan true heritage. Without going into many of the scientific inaccuracies of these tests, most of these Afrikans are left wanting and in need of much more information. Often times more questions are created than answers. Many are not aware that there is an Afrikan spiritual cultural way to find out exactly who you are.

In the Yoruba language, the word ipiile means “root, foundation“. In the Fon language of Benin Republic, the word dodo means “origins”. The reading often referred to as a Roots Reading is more properly called Ipiile Fa in Yoruba. It is roughly translated as “the root/foundation according to Fa/Ifa”. This is the reading whereas New Afrikans gather the pertinent spiritual, social, and mundane information reconnecting them to their Afrikan ethnic root. It is one thing to know that you are Afrikan, but even more important to know exactly where you come from. Not only does the Ipile Fa tell you this, but it also tells you such things as if your people were captured, and if so, how your people got into captivity, what kind of family you come from (what they were doing in Mawufe- Aja/Fon word for Afrika-before being captured), what did they do, what side of the family your soul descends from (hence, “root”), family taboos, the deity or deities your family worshiped, the Odu or sacred spiritual sign that governs your family, if one descends from royalty, blacksmiths, merchants, kwk (etc etc), which tribal nation was responsible for them being captured, when they were captured, to which part of the itankale (Yoruba for “diaspora”) they landed in, what happened with them when they got there, what other Afrikan ethnicities entered the family line, if there are any curses (spiritual illnesses) found within the lineage and how to rid the lineage of such ills, kwk (this is Ki Bantu or so-called “Ki Swahili” short for katha wa katha which means “etc., etc.”). Though there are not many priests trained within this system, we encourage all New Afrikans, Afrikans torn away from their Afrikan motherland, to seek out priests that do this very important reading. You do not have to depend on the distorted world of DNA testing companies. Read The Flawed World of DNA-Ancestry Testing Technology.

The Zoto Fa – Finding Your Ancestral Sponsor

The zoto (pronounced jo-to) is a unique West Afrikan Vodun ancestral concept. The word loosely translates as “the person who gives fire to the soul”. This is the ancestor most vested in helping their descendant achieve all of the good in life and avoid the bad. This ancestor is of the same sex as the person whose zoto they are. Often, the zoto will have unfinished business in relation to their own destiny and will seek to achieve that through their descendant. The zoto may have certain taboos, certain proclivities, certain standard for one’s mate choices and the like. Knowing one’s zoto is important for those Afrikans who wish to be complete.

In Vodun, it is preferable to set up a completely separate shrine to one’s zoto. This ancestor is deserving of special attention and a unique kind of veneration. There may be certain items, numbers, colors, kwk that are sacred to the zoto that will often play a part in the construction of the zoto shrine. One can say that the Zoto Fa (Fa divination that reveals the Zoto) is a direct compliment to the Ipiile Fa (Roots Reading).

For the Education of those Sincerely Seeking

It should be noted that this is a West Afrikan Vodun concept carried out by trained bokonon (those initiated to and trained in Fa/Ifá divination). The word zoto is an Aja -Fon) word. If there are those in other Afrikan systems claiming to be able to reveal your zoto, but are not trained in and using Fa divination from the Vodun perspective (people can have training in more than one system), then it is no different than those in Benin who are lying saying that they do Roots Readings when, in fact, the Roots Reading is a uniquely New Afrikan system created in the United States. The people in Benin are not trained in it.

Clearing the Air about His Imperial Majesty’s Imprisonment for a Crime He did not do

axosu agelogbagan agbovi of ganlodo

There have been many evildoers in the so called conscious community and Isese (Yoruba) tradition in amerikkka who have tried to use the fact that, 27 years ago, His Imperial Majesty Axosu Àgèlògbàgàn Agbovi was falsely accused of and convicted with no evidence of a horrible crime. They never hear his side because they love drama in those circles. However ,for those that want to know the truth, this is what truly happened. Check out these videos for the absolute truth.

To the evil doers and backbiters in the RBG (red, black and green so called black power types with no plan for our people and who are often always broke) so csloed conscious “community” who have no character or culture whatsoever and the Isese (Yoruba) practitioners who have assisted the white people in defaming my name without hearing my side of the story or even directly speaking to me: PLEASE lay your eyes on this. As smart as you all are, having all the answers without real research, and with all the books y’all have read, we are sure that you must know what this Aja (Fon) chant says. You will carry this with you.

The Kilombo Paradigm: Maroon Sovereignty Through Vodun Culture

The Kilombo Paradigm: Maroon Sovereignty Through Vodun Culture

We are happy to announce that His Imperial Majesty Agelogbagan Agbovi’s latest work, Kilombo Paradigm: Maroon Sovereignty through Vodun Cultureis now available! This profound work is a unique and well researched book. It is unique in that nowhere in Afrikan traditions in the world will you see such an analysis that breaks down the spiritual, political, social, economic, and sovereign thrust of Afrikan culture and how to use it to obtain sovereignty in such a clear cut way. The Kilombo Paradigm is a solid treatise and real solution to that old question: “What will it take for Afrikan people to get back on top?”. The Kilombo Paradigm offers a step by step program towards achieving Afrikan sovereignty and obtaining sovereign space. It is based on the concepts of family development, nation building, and full ReAfrikanization. The political thrust of the Kilombo Paradigm, combined with its envelopment within authentic Afrikan Vodun culture and spirituality, lays out a functional plan for economic, political, family, national and spiritual elevation. The Kilombo Paradigm is the answer to taking Afrikan culture to the next level of functionality and producing worldwide respect for Afrikan people.

A Kilombo is a sovereign space that was created by those captive Afrikans who escaped captivity and created sovereign communities. The Kilombo Paradigm informs us that we must first create that sovereign space in our minds before we can successfully create sovereign spaces (kilombos) in the world. The Kilombo Paradigm is the culmination of 28 years of involvement and leadership in Afrikan-centered programs, institutions, and study of and immersion in Afrikan culture and spiritual sciences of Afrikan Vodun and the Isese tradition of the Yoruba people.  Purchase here.
