self empowerment Ifa And Orisha Worship   A Source For Self EmpowermentWhen I was initiated into Ifa the only goal I had was to get to know myself better, and in so doing eliminate certain aspects of my character which constantly got me in trouble. Little did I know that through Ifa and Orisha worship, I would find an everlasting source of self empowerment.
