(Video) 4 Elements of the Human Soul – Igbo Mythology (reincarnation, purpose, divinity, spirit bonds, more)


This video shows the four spiritual elements that make the human soul according to Igbo spirituality. These are Chi, Eke, Mmuo and Onyeuwa. This is important to understand if you’re building a foundation in Odinani (Igbo Cosmology/Spirituality), and to add insight on the nature of the human soul. This video also touches on how to determine your destiny, predestination, how reincarnation works in the Igbo world view, and how these parts work together to make you who you are.

  1. Greetings Derick

    Thank you for the share. This is a topic I am especially interested in so will spend some time with this video and feedback.

    How has life been for you?

    I am curious if Odinani has been esp helpful for you under the pandemic?
    I certainly found that I had to step up my spiritual practice as a Medicine woman and seems to have put me in good stead throughout.

    Blessed Be
