How To Use Alligator Pepper For Prayers
OSEOJI is a seed from a particular type of grass. That which produces oseoji is called oseoyo. It’s not a tree, but a grass.
When it’s freshly brought out from the ground, it’s wet and will have to be dried under the sun. After drying under the sun, then it gets to look like it is now – pictures below.
Before opening oseoji, it has to be taken behind your back. The reason to break it open behind your back is because oseoji is a spirit, and like every spirit, it forbids certain things to remain effective.
This is why it shouldn’t be opened in your front. To open oseoji, take your two hands behind your back and use your fingers to break it open. After which, you now bring your hands to your front and then pour it into a plate, cup, etc for intended use or keep it like that depending on how you want to use it.
Oseoji forbids a lot of things. The reason for this is that so that it remains effective. Below are things that oseoji forbids, as well things that makes it more effective.
Never keep oseoji where a man or woman can cross over it, especially women. The reason for the emphasis on women is that most times they are menstruating, and this affects the effectiveness of oseoji. Therefore, you’ve to be careful where you store the oseoji.
After praying with oseoji and circling four times around your head, be careful where you drop it. Be careful you do not drop it anywhere a woman will cross over it. This is because once a woman menstruating crosses over it, it renders it ineffective and all your prayers with it becomes useless.
Once the oseoji drops on the ground and toches the soil, it becomes a medicine. It communicates to earth (soil) your prayer intentions and they start working towards perfection of your prayer intentions.
As the breeze blows by, it interacts with earth, communicating your intentions as well and they carry it. It’s now effective because breeze blows everyday; in Eke, Orie, Afo and Nkwo (4 market days).
As the air carries it, it transports it across the sun, the waters, the earth, the trees in the forest and the heavens. You now see what we do and the reason we do it. That message you sent with oseoji, you now see how it reaches the heavens – because when breeze comes, it blows off sand and everything on the ground.
You don’t know where it takes it to. All these things it carries and wherever it takes it to, all works together.
If it drops them on top of the leaves, the leaves show it to the sun. When the sun comes, it communicates to it that this is a message from earth, which the wind brought forth.
The sun now carries the message and communicates them to the waters, telling it all things being said and for them to start working towards perfection. You now see how all these things work together. How all the spirits are one.
So, whenever all these things are happening in the spirit and a woman crosses over the place where you dropped the oseoji anytime, be it in 2, 5- or 10-months’ time, all the ritual prayers begins to reverse. Therefore, be careful where you drop your oseoji after prayers.
Depending on your prayer intentions, it may not matter when a woman crosses over the oseoji seed if the prayer purpose have been achieved. Some prayers are meant to last for a long time, while others are for short periods.
For example, if you prayed for a new job and a woman crosses over the oseoji seed you dropped after you must have gotten the new job, then it doesn’t matter anymore because the intended intention for the prayers has been answered.
All in all, be careful where you drop your oseoji seed after prayers. If you drop it carelessly and a woman crosses over it, then your ritual prayer becomes ineffective without you even knowing it. If you stay in a fenced environment, it’s advised you drop it close to the fenced wall where it’
