Vodun Meditations: Living the Joy of Your Inner Divinity

 

We are quite elated to introduce to our family the newest masterpiece by the Axosu, HRM Agelogbagan Agbovi, entitled Vodun Meditations: Living the Joy of Your Inner Divinity. Vodún  Meditations is  a  set  of  daily  affirmations  and  proverbs meant  for  our  functional  use  not  only  for  those  within  the Vodún Máwùyi (Afrikan  Vodún)  tradition,  but  all  Máwùyimele (Afrikan people)  of  good  character trying  to  live  a  beautiful  life.  Vodún  Meditations  is  the  product of  the  personal  experiences  and  observations  of  the  Axɔ́sú Àgèlògbàgàn  Agbovi  I  and  based on many inquiries how  he  saw  that  he  could  assist everyday  people  in  their  Vodún  path  –  Vodún  being  life  itself. What started off a couple of years ago or so as online daily inspiration from the Vodun perspective, has developed into a concise yet potent work for our daily living.

The 75  proverbs  included  are  from  ancient  Dànxɔmɛ  (a great Máwùyi monarchy that existed in what is now Southern Benin Republic) with translation  and  commentary  by  the  Axɔ́sú.  The 75 daily affirmations, the true meat of this work, appearing  on  the  opposite  page  are  from  the  Axɔ́sú’s  own  mind, experiences  and  observations.  They  are  replete  with  high  level guidance  rooted  in  ancient  Vodún  teachings,  but  fit  for everyday  living.  Each  affirmation  is  assisted  with  what  we  call a  dɛxixò  action.  This  is  a  small,  yet  effective  suggested action (prayer, and/or offering) to  the ancestors,  deity  and/or  to  the  divinity  of  self  to move  the  energy  being  affirmed.

An example daily affirmation from the book:

 

"The concept of myth is often misunderstood. In African Vodun, xɛxó or myth is a conduit to deeper realities not readily explainable in regular language. Mythic language comes from the inner esoteric experience. Every individual has their personal myth.  Consciously or unconsciously, we create our own myths.  We are all sheroes and heroes in mythic journeys by which we develop our own sagas - our tales of tribulation and triumph.  Thus, the truly satisfying and exciting myths are those which arise from our own passions, dreams, visions, and experiences.  Myth, combined with ritual, gives us very sure methods in dealing with the core of the human psyche. All myth has a general or universal relevance. At the same time, there has to be personal relevance for true functionality to occur.  As everyone has their myth, the most pertinent question remains...What is your myth?"

 

"Dexixo Action
An offering of assorted fruits to your ancestors, asking them to reveal the divine myth within, will set in motion the growth needed to overstand your myth. Ask them to show you how your myth is intricately related to that of the lineage's. Ask them to protect you from any of the dangers as you find 'the way'."

  1. This book is helpful 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2017

    I go back to certain ones from time to time. They seem to be speaking on my situations as certain times


  2. Well thought out 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2015

    The teachings in this book are very peaceful and thought provoking. I will say as a practitioner who has been looking for substantive teachings this is quite a breath of fresh air on that part.


  3. Very Different 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jul 2015

    I must admit that even as a practitioner I did not expect such teachings of calm, forgiveness, serenity and the like to be attached to Vodun. This is a new Vodun for me that I would like to investigate much more. I love this book to the point that I have started keeping it on my work desk.


  4. Calming 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jul 2015

    I can testify that this book is one of the most calming books I have ever read and it is by far the only ATR (African Traditional Religion) book that I have ever seen focused on such positive premises. I would say it is like a book of proverbs except for it is a very active and useful book filled with advice and things to do from the practical ATR level. Many of the sayings seem to speak directly to me. It encouraged me to create a more sacred space apart from the makeshift one I had already. It is truly a book of meditations that one should check into. This book speaks to my soul.
