Head Orixá carrying another Orixá

Post#1 » Thu Apr 06, 2017 7:46 am

The candomblé yalorixá that used to read the buzios for me once told me my head Orixá was carrying with him another Orixá, that would be a higher octave of the lower in the context of my head. For instance, supposing my head Orixá is Ogun, he would be carrying with him Xangô, that would be a higher expression of Ogun himself, but in a way that would ressemble Xangô (being of high authority and lover of justice for instance).

I was looking around for more info on this, but unfortunetelly couldnt find much. Seems like this is not even a standart concept amongst candomblé practioners.

Is anyone familiar with this concept in the scope of any ATR's?
