Who Are The Great Iyami Aje? Pt 1 (The Great Ancestral Mothers)

Who Are The Iyami Osonronga?

According to our elders the word Ìyámi means "my mother". Iya means (Mother) In Yoruba West African language culture. The mother's roles as the force of creation and the sustainer of life and existence elevates her to the realm of the infinite divine. The word Ìyámi -in tones becomes Ìyààmi or Ìyàmi, which can be translated as "the super-powerful ones" or "My Mysterious Mother.

Iyami Aje are known by many praise names which include, but are not limited to, Iyami Osoronga, Awon Iya Wa (Our Mothers), Eleye (Owner(s) of the Sacred Bird) Iya Iyami, Egbe Iyalode Oshun, Iyemoja Oya etc .

How do I know if I am on the right side of the Iyami or the wrong side?

​​The Iyami according to our elders are neutral forces, meaning they can work for the positive or the negative. For example, like all mothers they can show a harsh side and a loving side. We never want to offend the physical or spiritual Ori (head) of our Mothers, Wives, Sisters , Daughters, we must always strive to show respect and good character. This is because as a mother you naturally possess the basic access or means to connect to the Iyami (Aje)/Ase power good or bad. However much discipline is required, this is why we need our conduits and observe Orisha activities or prayer Ose days to help balance out these forces. In addition, another reason why many people undergo hardships because they may avoid the essence of respect or humility towards there physical mothers of their own ancestral lineage.

Our elders teach us, 'if you do not listen, you will feel" or if you don't listen life will teach you'. When you disobey your mother or give her a hard time because of stubbornness or bad character then our elders teach us this is when the energy of Iyami the ancestral Egbe council of mothers may step in to intervene positively or negatively in order to teach us a lesson or to support us based on the decisions or choices we make. Thus, we should strive to take the best option in order to develop wisely and listen to good advice.

I cannot sleep at night. Does this automatically mean I should receive a personal IFA Divination?

Yes, this would be in your best interest. If you are a person or child who lacks sleep at night or suffer from stomach problems these a some of the signs that indicate there are appeasements that may have to made to our Iyami ancestral mothers both physical and spiritual. Sometimes the reason maybe because prior situations are derived from a past life or inherited events from the people from the same bloodline as you, your ancestors.

The harsh energy of a physical or a spiritual Iyami ancestral mothers maybe causing problems as a result from a violation against the natural law of life situations, this includes if you are mistreating young girls or women, domestic violence or abusing women, girls, offending your wife, daughter, girlfriend, committing adultery or disrespecting your mother in anyway. It just depends on what actions are being implemented on a daily basis which channel the agreeable side or the disagreeable sides of the Iyami ancestral mothers.

This is why IFA Divination Consultations and Ancestral Roots Divinations, Ebo,and Akose IFA medicines are key in order to stop unknown or unforeseen issues that we may not be aware of to know how it should be handled by professional competent Babalawo Iyanifa trained IFA Priest Healers Doctors/Olorisha Priest/Egungun Priests.

What Is Aje?

Our ancient elders say Aje Is the Orisa of Wealth what she makes is a opportunity when appeased for us to attract money, wealth, prosperity. Aje is a female energy. Aje is she is adored and appeased to attract the energy of good luck into our lives. Women are the physical aspect of that female energy of wealth. The Mothers, women run the markets, institutions, her energy is the backbone as our elders say of the family and attract and know how manage economics and business.

According to our elders and in Yoruba IFA culture, every women should strive to run and own their own market or own their own business. This way the natural essence and spirit of Aje will work and sit with us Ase. In IFA divination it may be advised to receive the shrine of Aje for more support and connection with wealth. Therefore, if you have the market/business which is the physical aspect of pertaining wealth and you obtain the Shrine of Aje which acts as the spiritual tool to activate wealth, and resources, your situation will be balanced.

Aje in the spiritual realm, is an unseen invisible power associated with the all seeing eyes. You may encounter elderly women with markings under their eyes. All Aje can see into many worlds and realms. Aje is also a power that is natural feminine Power; only transferred from mother to daughter, this is taught by our elders.

It is said by our elders that even the crown of an Oba A King suggests that us of the birds (Eyele) that represents the Iyami are a great part to the sanctification of the monarchy.

In the Odu Ose Tura our elders express from mouth to ear that Oshun was the head of the Iyami and gave birth to Esu that bridged the gap and brought harmony for the female empowerment movement of women being respected by men. If you have a wife, daughter, sister, friend, we must strive to always honour and elevate the mother inherited within her. Supporting, encouraging motherhood force that is to become for the future and next generations. Once you cross into motherhood all children become your own. As our elders say " it takes a village to raise a child".

There is nothing we cannot do without our physical and spiritual mothers Oshun' healing waters is the primordial waters that protect every child in the womb of the mother. Iyemoja is the great mother of the world and ocean that protects the earth. Oya is the warrior winds that push forth the powerful revolutionary changes that as a women we have to undergo, Oya rebuilds our foundation with revolution and change.

Àjẹ́ is a Yoruba word that signifies the biological and spiritual power of African women which includes powers of elemental, biological and artistic creation; healing; destruction; spiritual and physical development and fortification; and political organisation and empowerment. Aje is a force beyond english and human comprehension and should not be disregarded. May our actions spark the support and protection of our great ancestral mothers support Ase.
