Secrets of Manifestation - Reinterpreting the Yoruba Concept of Consciousness

Many were fascinated by the powerful and inspiring book and movie, The Secret. It reveals a simple yet profound principle of manifesting one’s dreams and desires. It revolves around the idea that whatever thoughts prevail in one’s mind will eventually translate into physical reality. For example, if you are always thinking negatively, negativity will appear in your life and vice versa. It is the power of awareness. The funny thing is that this concept is not new but one that has dominated the minds of the Yoruba people for thousands of years.

The Yoruba are an African people in the southwestern part of Nigeria. They have an elaborate system of traditional worship with a pantheon of more than 400 deities called Orisha. Although they believe in God, they regularly propitiate the Orisha as mediators. However, despite the existence of such a large pantheon of spiritual forces, in Yoruba cosmology the most important force in the life of mankind is called Ori.

Ori is seen as a force representing embodied personal energy that encapsulates the idea of ​​consciousness, reason, destiny, and guiding principle in man. Every person has an ori and can be likened to a spiritual guardian. Ori symbolizes the head and is believed to be the most powerful and supportive force in human life. Ori is one’s consciousness. Ori is considered more powerful than Orisha. Ori represents the creative principle in humans given by God. It is said for blessing to enter one’s life, one must have the approval and blessing of Ori.

The connection between Ori’s Yoruba concept and the philosophy of mystery is the belief in the power inherent in human consciousness to manifest reality. The ability to make things happen, or to manifest one’s desires, is called ashi in the Yoruba language. When a person is successful in whatever they do, that person is said to have a lot of ashi. When one’s words are fulfilled, he is said to show ashes. Ash is the ability to make things happen. It is the ability to be intentionally effective in this world.
