    Thank ya kindly sistah!

    Sistah, Oya "corresponds" to the respiratory system and Eshu that of central nervous system culminating at the medula oblongata (I,e, the crossroads of the twin fires) in the human body

    If we look closely we can see how the fundamental interaction between the the brain and the central nervous system, serves as a micro-cosm of the connection between the 6th and 7th chakras and Eshu

    I stand corrected, both meanings are inter-changeable.

    Elder Sekhemu,

    I am distressed about something I recently read in the book 'Mama Lola; A Voudon Priestess in Voudon'. In it the Author states that the Orisha/Lwa who owns your head, or your Higher Guardian Angel can block your dreams, or make it so that you cannot recall any dreams that you have until you perform certain rituals to appease them. Are you able to expound further on this, and in particular why this diety would need to appeased in the first instance?

    Many thanks,

    Alexandra
