The Yoruba Healing Philosophy
According to the Ifa Corpus, the “ajogun” is the cause of all chronic diseases. Nature (Ashe) has made us so that our spirit instinctively operates according to the seven Orishas, or divine attributes. Every human ailment can be classified according to which of these angelic forces is disrupted at the time. In Yoruba teachings ajogun (demons) is the term used for negative tendencies in the mind/spirit. The Orishas are the heaven-sent forces of purity that combats them. Each Orisha exists in us as our divine nature for alignment with our Creator, and our higher evolution, because everything in nature expands, evolves, and grows. As you increase in Cosmic Intelligence, you will live according to the seven principles of life:
Then and only then will you open the “third eye of Orunmila”, Cosmic Consciousness and live in harmony with the universe. The goal of Yoruba diagnosis is to get in touch with the interaction of your internal Orishas, with the rhythms of the universe, and with the spiritual forces which have their impact on the human Ashe, or essence. When you are able to bring your mind, and spirit to that, and feel the flow of the internal Orishas, you are experiencing a re-alignment with universal One-ment. This is why rhythmic dance, movement and music along with the Plants of the earth are so important in African medicine. Because they connect us to the three principal forces: Nature, Spirit, and physical form, which lead to an improved healing process and a return to health.
