Latvian Tourist and Anago Osho, claim to be Slaves in their former lives

The world and it's mysteries proves that the world is full of wonders. Planet Earth is surrounded by secrets and unanswered questions but the seeker of truth may avail in his search.

The question at hand is the issue of rebirth. The possibilities of people to be reborn is questioned by many today, but nearly all Ancient Customs and Cultures of the world support the believe in reincarnation.
Mrs Ginta was born in Latvia, in the Baltic region of Europe. She now reside in Ireland with her Nigerian husband. She is so convinced that she is a reincarnation of her former soul.

She has an unexplainable feeling when she think of Africa. She said that her former life experience began in Africa, before she was captured and sold into slavery.

PRAYER OF A REINCARNATED SLAVE By Anago James Akeem Osho

Dear Creator of life,
I stand here to represent
all the children and people
of this country and the continent of Africa
that were sold into Slavery
by the Europeans and their African
collaborators.

I confess that this was done in ignorance

The cries, and the curses ranted by the enslaved
were due to pain, hardship, frustration
and disappointment experienced by them

Today, by inspiration, understanding,
vision and knowledge, i asked that you,

the Creator of the worlds, both physical
and Spiritual, forgive us
that we may be able to forgive each other,
and wipe away our tears,
and all evil spirits that are speaking
against the land and people.

Creator of life,
Come and heal the land
Come and heal the people

Let us forgive each other inlove

I seek forgiveness
and i forgive all the people
that were involved in the Slave trade
This is my prayer,
Prayer of a Slave born in 1753,
stolen to Havana - Cuba

SPIRITUAL CONFRONTATION WITH SLAVES IN THE BARRACOON WITH COURTENAY AND SANGOSAKIN By Anago James Akeem Osho

''There are ghosts in this town''. This was the first statement that was made by Courtenay Belchik-Ajala to me on our path toward a spiritual adventure. It was a journey to the experiences of some of the Slaves in the past.
She said that ''there are spirits in the barracoon''(Slave cell). ''There are Slaves who have died and have not crossed to the next world and some of them may not even know that they are dead''.  Courtenay Belchik said that it is wrong for people to live in the Slave cells of the Brazillian Barracoon of Seriki Williams Abass of Badagry because the spirit around there are not resting in peace. They are without rest. She said that the spirits would use the people like the battery in a radio. It is possible to use them to fulfill there aims either positive or negative. People who live in such a place may retrogress instead of progress. Things may not be right with them. Eventually, she said that people should learn to re…

THE REPERCUSSION OF THE NEW AND RIGID STRATUM IN AFRICA By James Akeem Osho Anago

The dividing up of the society in Africa was not static. It was nonrigid. It was flexible. Social stratum is a person’s class in a society. People belong to different social strata or social stratum, and this could depend on the family that a person was born into or the type of occupation one is involved in e.t.c. but it could change for the better or worse.

In Africa, before colonization, the kings’ position was undisputed at the top of the social stratum. The kings were at the top of the political hierarchy and slaves were placed at the bottom. Though, slaves were able to climb up the ladder to greatness. 
Ancient Africa provided a level playing field for everyone to achieve greatness. A poor family could move up the ladder of society and a wealthy family could do better and sustain their wealth or push downward to poverty. Hard work and determination to succeed is one of the characteristics of Africa. This is evidence in the folklore of Africa and narratives of enslaved Africans in t…
