In order to know what’s really going on we all need clarity. Being clear depends on being calm and keeping a cool head.
The first thing most of us notice about an Obatala is their mind. The Obatala energy is really about finding, and keeping, clarity. I’m an Obatala. As I wrote this I had to think about what Obatala people contribute to the world. What connecting with us, and our Guardian, can bring into your life.
Do you know somebody who is in their head all the time? They’re bit introverted with a dry sense of humour. They are easily annoyed but always searching for peace. If these qualities sound familiar you’ve likely found an Obatala. Perhaps you’re one yourself.
The Obatala is always searching for the peace that results in clear thinking. They can’t just escape into their head. During a fight a woman who needs space to sort out her feelings is a typical Obatala. Her partner may feel abandoned, but, she needs to think about her feelings before she can deal with them. All that thinking can get you running in circles. Real understanding requires a balance between the emotions, and the mind. When our hearts and intellects are in sync we have sound judgment.
All this focus on the mind makes it harder to care for the body. We must consider our physical well-being as we experience life. In order to live productive lives we need to be strong. Our physical health is critical if we are to to achieve our destinies. Some Obatalas totally ignore the needs of their bodies. Make no mistake, this will catch up with anyone, eventually. Exercise time can be a great way for an Obatala to get the alone time they need. A great way to sort through a difficult situation is a long, quiet walk.
I love the Obatalas in my life for the perspective they provide. They are keen observers. They can figure out where conflicts are coming from. They can also stay calm when emotions are running high. Next time you need some advice, or clarity, spend some time with an Obatala. If you’re looking to bring some balance into your life remember that peace and calm are your gateway to clarity. Practicing long, deep, breathing is one of the best ways to clear your head.
