Now let's look at the process of pouring libations. This is a ritual that helps empower our people by helping us remember who we are, where we come from, and give us a deeper look at our connection to the universe in which we live. During libations we are able to reflect and give thanks to those that came before us, and lay the ground work for those that will come after us.
I will share here Dr. Carr pouring and an article from my blog explaining how to do it.
to connect with all that is/ and to cleanse our hearts/ I need to start this article by stating this information is based on my personal experience. I have been pouring libations for at least 20 years all over the country and personally.

I am a lay man who have made a personal connection with the world, and the spirit. By pouring Libations we strengthen these relationship. So let me define a few things first so that we can be on the same page. Libations - the process of pouring or giving a sacrifice to form a connection with this world and the spiritual realm.

Finding salvation/ Through moving to my limits/ Run, Gye-Nyame, Run/ While doing a Warrior training, we began discussing the importance of the Pledge to our organization. We began to walk through the pledge as a group: "I am a Gye-Nyame Man and I was born for greatness, My greatness flows from my Potent Center. I Pledge to find and connect with my Potent Center."

Our discussion first hit the points around the personal power that each of us have, but then the discussion turned from the mysterious power, to the location of our center. We often discuss the power of the center but we never talk about how to find it.

From here the warriors began to ask QUESTions. Through
