      Pouring Libation


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      HOTEP!! For people of African descent, our ancestors are the focus of deep respect.

      The offering of libation involves the pouring of liquid, which can be water or wine, on the ground in a special pattern while homage is paid to the ancestors



      THE LIBATION (TAMBIKO)
      We call upon our ancestors far and near Fathers of our fathers, mothers of our mothers
      To bear witness to what we have done,
      And by their example, to continue to inspire us toward,
      Reclaimig our African minds, regenerating our African spirit,
      Liberating our home land, and reclaiming our greatness as a people.
      We pour this libation to bring into our midst their venerable African spirit, radiating their great wisdom, courage, dedication, and unyielding commitment to victory by any means necessary. It is in the honor of our Creator, our Ancestors, our Children and their children that we pour this libation. For the Creator, and the various manifestation of the Creative spirit;
      We Pour Libation (Audience respond "Ashay"/Be with us)
      For our esteemed ancestors, who laid the foundation for human civilization, and who provided the wisdom by which we live and the models by which our lives are guided;
      We Pour Libation (Audience respond "Ashay"/Be with us)
      For our esteem ancestors who have suffered the atrocities and horrors of our MAAFA(The African Halucost), and yet demonstrtated the victorious power of the African spirit against adversity, by maintaining their dignity no matter the cost.
      We Pour Libation (Audience respond "Ashay"/Be with us)
      And for those ancestors who survived and made it posible for us to be here today to continue on their valiant struggle for African liberation and vindication.
      We Pour Libation (Audience respond "Ashay"/Be with us)
      And finally, for our Children and their children and future generations of Africans to come, that they too in their time will vindicate our race from all adversaries and continue to imprint upon the world the great genius of african humanity;
      We Pour Libation (Audience respond "Ashay"/Be with us)
      May their venerable African spirit engulf this occasion to reaffirm our Africanity.
      It is done.
      Amon is satisfied.

      Did Tupac know and do other rappers know that when they "pour out a little liquor" that they are actually performing libation? I wonder do they know the origin of that,or did they just think they were the ones that started it?

      Heaven for a Thug?: Why Libation and Young Warriors Don't Mix

      Since as long as anybody can remember, young brothers have been pouring out liquor on the street corner for their fallen friends, young men that have died from gang violence, disease, police violence and drug wars.

      Thug Heaven?

      This act of libation has spawned a popular aspect of Hip Hop, where young people now pay homage to fallen "street soldiers" which inevitably pushed the question, "Is there a Heaven for a G (gangster)?" A question that young warriors have already answered which some common notions as "Only God can judge me" and "Thug's Paradise".

      Well the short answer is yes. Africans and Native Americans believe EVERYONE makes to Heaven, with the exception of disturbed souls whose death was so violent and traumatic that they have to be ushered into the afterworld through special means. Many middle passage, civil war soldiers, Vietnam vets, lynching victims etc. fall into this category. There is a "heaven" for thugs, but it isn't pretty.

      Heaven is simply the afterworld and it is "good" or "bad" based on how you live. Indigenous people say rapists go to live with rapists in the afterworld. Killers, egomaniacs, bigots, etc. They go to a place to reside with people like themselves. So they will be surrounded, at least initially with all the misery they experienced in life.

      When we tell the family of these dead children that their children are finally at rest, we are most likely deceiving them. Many relive their days on Earth so they can fully understand the evil they caused others. Their souls do not rest. They are tormented and troubled. Especially if they are among those that didn't make it to Heaven, but instead are waiting for spiritual work to be done on their behalf.

      We call these people that die but do not become Ancestors "Dark Deceased" in some cultures. They are not honored, nor believed to have lived long enough to understand and achieve their divine destiny.

      What do Thugs do in Heaven?

      What they do in Heaven is the same as what righteous people do. They recount their time on Earth, hear what lessons they failed to learn, and begin to process that for reincarnation. Some are so terrible that they are not given opportunities to return as long as their evil is felt on Earth. If Hitler was human (and I have reason to doubt that he was) you can be sure that he probably hasn't reincarnated yet. It wouldn't be logical to let such a person cross over into Life again when millions of spirits that haven't caused as much suffering are waiting to reincarnate as well. (Please know these references to numbers are for human understanding and aren't to be taken too literally. The point is that many ancestors and what we call "Yet to be Born" are waiting to experience Divine Creation.)

      Should I pour out a little Liquor?

      But it's important to realize that the pouring of Liquor or Libation is a rite reserved exclusively for those that lived good moral lives. When we pour libation to a person we are honoring and invoking their character, behavior and beliefs. We are asking them to bring us more of what they gave us on Earth.

      When we pour liquor to fallen "street soldiers" we are invoking the sale of drugs, the use of firearms, the objectification of women, the fear they breed among our elderly, the vice grip they hold on our blocks. We are asking them to bring more of that into our lives. To help us continue to fight gang wars. To help continue to be able to do whatever it takes to get fly clothes rims and secret "cribs" where we hide secret girlfriends. We are invoking their desire for money, their desire for revenge, their desire for power and respect.

      We are welcoming more crime, more death, and more materialism into our lives.

      When we pour liquor to a dead gang member we are praying for more gang members. When we pour liquor to a dead pimp we are praying for more pimps to be born and molded. In doing so, the cycle continues. There is a spiritual consequence for performing the rite of libation on the wrong people.

      "The Rules"

      We do not pour libation for people that died in violence that was not community endorsed (just war) - In most cultures they don't get public funerals either.
      We do not pour libation for criminals. - In most cultures they don't get public funerals either.
      We do not pour libation for deceased children even if they were good people. What could a child spirit offer us in the way of wisdom??? (Some culture differ here or at least restrict their communications with child spirits.)
      We do not pour libation for people that died of ailments out of norm for their age or that betray a bad lifestyle. - In most cultures they don't get public funerals either.
      We do not pour libation for people that commit suicide. No exceptions. (This is always the one that everyone feels they ought to do"anyway" and end up getting hurt even WORST.)
      We only pour libation for Elders that were moral and responsible.

      Healing the Thugs

      If you have a loved one that didn't die as an Ancestor you can pray for their spiritual elevation in your prayers to God, not the Ancestors. Pray that they learn the lessons of their lives well and that they make it safely to the afterworld, if they aren't there already. Light a candle every once in awhile for them.

      If you feel the presence of a relative or friend that died violently, was a criminal, a sexual predator, a poor parent, or had any other bad characteristics that made them unpleasant to most, you should demand that they leave and find divine spirit. It's not your job to help them do that, because as vagrant spirits they are more dangerous than they were alive and they can become very desperate and violent in their confusion. Only a professional spiritualist should call and work directly with one of these spirits. Again, you can light a candle for them to move towards for spiritual realization. This acts as a spiritual trigger, a "metaphor". That is it.. Anything more and you may get hurt. (Literally. I have seen this happen with my own eyes.)


      What Impact do Dark Deceased have on our lives?

      Many of you are fighting with spouses because of vagrant spirits that couldn't keep relationships during their lives or battling with a boss that walks with a vagrant spirit that was a slave master etc. Or you want to give up the gang life but feel "compelled" back by an old friend that is now a morally unresolved spirit.

      This is why we shouldn't pour libation to our young warriors that were involved in crime or violence. This is why we should not call their names in praise. This has nothing to do with the love that we have them. It is about honoring and invoking the right kind of energy and wisdom into our lives.

      Ever notice how your grandparents didn't speak about certain people?

      lol...you have just posted an article that is written by me. and that is already on the board. its all good though. glad to know its getting around. very important topic.







      On the matter of what to offer the Ancestor or Deities, we have the choice of Water, Wine and "Hard" Liquor. The choice of liquid depends on the nature of the libation and prayer and what your aim is in invoking (awakening) the Ancestors.

      As has been my own experience:
      Water is for cooling and healing and creating or reconciling relationships.
      Liquor is fiery and is usually used to rouse, cement, ignite, protect and peform strong purfication.
      Wine is mid-way between the two and is good for friendly relations, creating comradry between man and spirit.

      This is an important matter as many of us do not realize that when you pour libation you are AWAKENING the Ancestors. The libation is only the 1st part of the process. After awakening the Ancestors, we have to actually DO something, DISCUSSS something or WORK a ritual. Libation is not complete without at bare minimum THANKING the Ancestors or REQUESTING something like support, stability, clarity, spiritual cleansing or protection etc.



      Ideally, once you have poured libation you should be TALKING to the Ancestors like you talk to any other living person. You should conversate and build the relationship. Over time, you will hear messages in distinct ways. Sometimes several people will hear the message or hear parts of the message that then can be pieced together to make one complete communication from the Ancestors.

      If you are pouring libation prior to a public event, you ask for BLESSINGS for that event or those in attendance.



      The important part to remember again, is that libation in and of itself is not enough. You craft your libation prayer (in the diaspora people still dont understand that the best prayers have been empowered or handed down directly from specific Egungun or Orisa, so they are still most comfortable writing their own libation prayers) then you craft the conversation that EXPLAINS WHY YOU INVOKED the Ancestors on this occasion.

      After doing these two things you close with Ase (which is a spiritual command/declaration of sorts of "Let it be so/Let it be done") and you GIVE THANKS PRIOR to seeing the fruits of your efforts. That is, you assume with confidence that provided you have not be unethical or lazy or cutting corners in your life that whatever you have asked for will come or Spirit will tell you what is it that you really need in place of that request.



      Young people do not normally pour libation in the presence of Elders unless their youthful energy is identified as a necessity for that paricular ritual or cermony. Libation is done by community elders or the oldest member of the family. It can also be done by clergy of all ages, provided the eldest clergy present sanction and approve of the person identified. (This may sound familiar. In some churchs young people ask publicly for the right to speak or preach, even when their presence has already been planned, to guarantee that the eldest among them will be supporting their efforts and firming up the spiritual energy present.)

      The person officiating Libation must possess the spiritual FORCE to open the way to Spiritual communication. We go with the safest route during this occasion and choose to allow those that are older, trained or more versed than us conduct such affairs.

      Libation is a powerful spiritual science. Learn the steps well!

      I guess I will share one other matter. Not all forms of libation are poured. Sometimes libations are shared with the addition of personal Ase, which is done by SPEWING the liquid from one's mouth onto the Earth or Deity or Ancestor Shrine. This carries much strength, but is not done carelessly. (if you don't know when to do it, ask a traditionalist for assistance.)

      In contemporary times people do not always have a consecrated shrine or the actual Earth beneath them to pour libation. They wonder how to conduct the process properly in these situations without making a mess, especially when they do not own the space in which they are conducting their event.



      You can pour libation on
      1. the ground
      2. on to a shrine
      3. on the ground in front of a shrine
      4. at the doorstep to a building
      5. on to a living plant
      6. into a receptable which on the floor symbolizing the ground
      7. on the street in front a venue

      there may be other ways, but these are safe bets.

      Libation can be poured everyday, every 4 days, once a week, once a month, or twice a year. Whatever you decide, keep the cycle going. The more frequently you can actually perform the better the results.

      This is a sample libation in part as adapted from "Spirit of the dead Rise Up" as spoken by Nana Oscar Brown Jr.

      i say in part because for any Akan libation to be complete there has to be 4 parts.

      Ɔfrɛ- the call
      Botaeɛ- the reason for the call
      Nhyirasrɛ- asking for blessings
      Nnome- asking for curses on all enemies

      this here would just be a sample to give u some ideas. check out Twi online subforum. stay BlackNificent

      Akan Wartime Libation and Translation
      Fochidi - Ewe Concept of 'Libation'

      "The word 'chi' means the primal force, that which expresses itself as consciousness. The 'chi' manifests itself as mind. All embodied 'chi' can enter into a zone where the whole of creation flows into one life. So 'chi' is a creative force. And there are formulas by which we set the 'chi' into a state of vibration, and by so doing whatever we ask becomes. You use sound and water (alcohol in libation pouring symbolises water) because 'chi' is related to both. Both sound and water are the source of life. So libation pouring is simply setting your life-force into a state of vibration. Therefore, 'fochidi' means set your life force into vibration and let it sound so that other life forces may hear and heed your sound. You direct at the causes of all causes, and it will bring you what you want. Vibration is the mother of creation."

      Dr. Dartey Kumodji
      from "Sunsum as Conscious Energy: A Viable Scientific Postulate" by Martin Adjei

      Water was used and white palm wine were used.

      Mpaebɔ ne Mpaeyi = to call out to pae=to split/open

      nsaguo - the pouring of spirits ne nsuguo- the pouring of water

      ================================================== =========

      This is a translation/adaptation of Oscar Brown Jr.'s Spirit of the Dead from Haile Gerima's Sankofa and made into a libation...it was so powerful i was like y it cain't be powerful in the languages of Our Ancestors? ...stay BlackNificent!
