This Ancient African Faith is based around obtaining God Consciousness!

Yoruba is an indigenous tradition to Africa which has expanded around the world and fused with other religions thanks to the white man and their damnable slave trade.

The basis of this faith is collectively striving for God Consciousness along with the rest of humanity, and with support from the higher beings and spirits of the cosmos.

Their understanding of God is a grand infinite Oneness, and through their many different forms of rituals and spiritual practices, they can come to know God as one of His Children.

A creative energy called “Ashe(ah-shay)” flows through everything, and Ashe literally translates to command and authority. It also often means “So Be It” or “So it is”

This is an African philosophical concept which the Yoruba conceive to make things happen and produce change. It is given by Oludumare to everything, gods, ancestors, spirits, humans, plants, rocks, rivers, and even songs and conversations. Existence, according to Yoruba, is dependent upon it, and a person who, through training, experience, and initiation, learns how to use this essential life force is called an Alaashe.
