THE OGBANJE CHILD and the four elements. from the book by Knight Fredel air spirit ogbanje


All Souls are energy, born out of the Ether, the source of all creation and foundation of all life forms, from the psychic to the mental, spiritual and physical realms of consciousness.

After we all descended from the source of all creation and life forms, we had to pass through certain “elemental” stages whereby we get to choose our element and its kingdom/realm.

Some of us where born of water, others Fire, Air and Earth. However, in each Soul exists the four elements of nature, the Water, the Air, the Fire and the Earth elements, nevertheless each of these Souls are made to belong to one of the elemental kingdoms of the four: water air fire and earth elements.

So which element, are you made of? Which kingdom do you as a Soul belong to? Is it the water kingdom? Or is it the Air kingdom? The fire or the Earth kingdom, so which are you? At this point the reader must note that some western esoteric mysticism prefers to categorize these kingdoms as Soul groups, therefore when I say water kingdom for example, I am referring to the soul group ruled by the element of water.

Many religious persons know of the water or marine kingdom because its the most notable and most powerful and so became the most popular especially when the church and many esoteric paths decided to demonize it because mainly, some don’t understand it,, you know humans,, they always demonize something they don’t understand.

Some demonized it in order to scare people away from the truth and power it possesses whereby using and misusing it behind.

I know that many of you do not at this moment know which element you are made of, nevertheless I’ll ask you questions at the end of this article, when answered sincerely and correctly then you will find the true answer by yourself. By then you will recognize your element, and with that knowledge you will come to be acquainted with who you are who your requests and prayers should be channeled to.

Note, the universe is vast and infinite; conversely you are right to clinch to all things but, there is need for you to know that; there are things that are aligned to you and therefore meant for you. This is another reason why certain types of requests you make to the Divine or your god or gods are not answered; some are answered not by the one you call upon but by the elemental attached to you which you are uninformed of.

Really they do not seek your worship. They came to serve you and that is why they followed you into this world, so if you go close to them, they will help you. I am a living testimony. They are unemotional so they do not have egos or pride, many esoteric paths and traditional religions get the wrong ideas about them by worshiping and bowing down to them as though they are our creators, no, they neither need your worship nor praises.

Now, in order to explain the four elements and the Soul groups of each element, I shall be using the “Ogbanje” as a case study. If you can understand this ancient African concept of Ogbanje which relates with the water elemental’s and the marine world/kingdom or realm, then you will understand the concept of Fire, Air, and Earth which I shall present to you in a future article.


OGBANJE is an African concept that states that there exists some set of spiritual and advanced special souls who come to earth for a more special reason, these sets of Souls are known as the Ogbanje (in Igbo language).

These set of people are widely believed in traditional African written and oral mythology to be people who incarnated from the Marine World and possesses some sort of magical powers to command their desires.

They are highly revered and at the same time discriminated in the society because of the mysteries surrounding their births, lifestyles and deaths. Ogbanje’s as we know it in Igbo speaking areas of Nigeria has the same meaning in Ndoki language as “Owu”. Yorubas calls it “Emere”. Many other tribes and people of the black race are aware of their existence and their names vary depending on language and dialect but they exist in our tradition even as I write this article. An Ogbanje has no definite sex. An Ogbanje can be a female or a male child as I am one myself.


One of the major misunderstandings concerning this topic in our society is the fact that people do not know that there exists two different sets of an Ogbanje child. We have the ones who come to earth only as a punisher and this type is used by the universal powers-that-be to fulfill the law of karma.

THE OGBANJE CHILD and the four elements. from the book by Knight Fredel air spirit ogbanje

Now, let us talk about the Ogbanje child who comes into a family as a sort of punisher to the parents especially to their mother’s, and let’s recapitulate the reasons why they do that!
Natural laws exist and always in motion at all times. The laws of karma supersede every other law as it’s one of the most important.

The way I will give my explanation of this phenomenon and of the Ogbanje child will or may likely differ from popular opinion and that is because I bring you these teachings from a much earlier and ancient Af’rakan spirituality. I put every aspect of mysticism and spirituality in contemplation and thoughtfulness, every aspect of natural and universal laws is also put into consideration.

I also researched deep into the root of the spirituality and mysticism of various tribes of our African countries (and through my own experience as an Ogbanje child and the experience of many other friends) in order to arrive at this conclusion. I went that far in order to present you with a deeper and clearer understanding of who the Ogbanje child really is.

So what are the reasons for their actions, why are they, the Ogbanje child called the punisher’s and what are they punishing them for?

HERE IS YOUR ANSWER: Women who in their past lives disobeyed and misused their opportunities as well as abused their womanhood by running many abortions and dumping their babies by the road side for others to find or throwing away their new born babies by the gutters and bushes and letting them die a harsh death all because they don’t want to enter that faze of motherhood due to reasons best known to them.

Those babies they destroyed or caught short their incarnation may be souls born of water, and to such deeds can bring them great suffering, either in the same life or in another life these women are sent back here and given a good opportunity and a perfect marriage, ones they are ready to have kids, the Ogbanje child (of this category) will be sent to incarnate on that baby in other to pass on a kind of punishment whereby the woman will feel the pain of losing a child over and over again. This type of Ogbanje will come to her, live a short life and then die and reincarnate again to the same woman, live up to seven or ten years old, some will live up to 20 to 25, finish school and then die on a very important day. All these are to hurt the mother, to make her feel the pain of losing a child; its a lesson and the only way to for her to help herself is to makes peace with the marine world, and then she could be given a normal life.

According to a book by Falola: A Mouth Sweeter than Salt. University of Michigan Press Copyright 2005. p. 73-75. The book says a lot about this type of Ogbanje (The punishers), it reads:
An emere, in traditional Yoruba culture, is a child who can travel between the spiritual and physical world at will. A negative connotation is associated with the word, as it implies that a family’s child may disappear and reappear at will.

The impatient emere wants the best of heaven and Earth. An emere is a spirit in disguise, misrepresenting death as life, and is clever enough to disguise his objectives. Believed to be more powerful than witches, they most often die on a particular day of joy. On wedding days, when having their first baby, graduation from university etc. depending on the degree of happiness the event might cause. They are also believed to be extremely pretty, and have seductive powers.

The emere gives unconditional support to heaven while on earth, distorting the balance of power, betraying Earth and its followers, annoyed that Earth did not allow visitors from heaven.
An emere is usually considered a female (but mostly there are males too, all depends).

According to this book, Falola didn’t exactly state the inner and higher reason above all why the Emere should punish their parents, this is why my explanation touches every angry.

What is so mysterious about the Ogbanje child?
Is it their beauty which dazzles like the morning Sun or their aura which they usually exude?
Is it the powers they possess which allows them the liberty to sometimes, if by the will of their higher self can create things others may consider a miracle or mystery.

Or is it the mysterious way they usually depart the earth or the tell-tale signs that accompanies them during birth?
Perhaps its the luck that and blessings they come with at the time of their births, as many parents do experience wealth at the time of their births or is it the bad lucks and negative things that happens to those who offend them by making them angry.

However and whatever be the mysteries, these set of folks are really special people and should never be discriminated. Truth be told, every traditions of the world recognizes these special people and acknowledges their existence. India for example celebrates and even worships Ogbanje children for the fortunes they usually come with.

Even the Western worlds and the American continents know of their existence. Parents who do not acknowledge their Ogbanje children, that is; parents who don’t care for them, and chooses to neglect them or make them surfer usually are indirectly punished in sense that their home may be divided, no more money flow, and so many problems in the family may be created. No charms or power can ever break such , no prayer nor pastor can ever bring peace and wealth back into such parents unless their duty/responsibilities to the Ogbanje child is accepted and the goddess and gods from that realm they come from are appeased, then everything will be in place ones again.

Many people truly are unaware of this knowledge. Without first learning to understand the truth behind the Ogbanje child, many religious people decides to tag them evil and based on their religious creeds, they discriminate the Ogbanje child.

This is a natural phenomenon that science and religion has never refuted yet, the Ogbanje child is demonized in Africa since the advent of the white slave masters who imported their religion and culture, then forced them upon the African ancestors. They demonized it because they could not explain the mysteries behind the Ogbanje child hence the need to demonize them and faze them out. (Smiles) Man naturally fears what he does not understand.

The same fear with which the primitive minds could not explain the mysteries behind the blue sky, the rain, the sun, the wind, the thunder and sea which led to the belief in anthropomorphic Being who lives up there in the sky and who oversees the affairs of mankind . If the White men who invaded Africa had seek the knowledge of the Ogbanje child through the Chief Priests and Priestesses who are custodians of the African spirituality, they would have grasp in totality the hidden knowledge of the Ogbanje child and its correlation to what the Western and Eastern Mystery schools perpetuate today, however the knowledge these people teach today all has its roots in Af’raka. For example, the Western and Eastern esoteric schools teaches that there are 4 most important elements namely Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
These four elements are inherent in the incarnate man/Soul. Some people came into being via Water; some came through Fire and some through Earth and Air just like I said in the beginning of this lecture.

This process was also demonstrated by the Bible writers in the book of Genesis. It is very important to note that there was an explanation of how everything was created in the bible except WATER. Why did the bible not explain how water was created? Is there something mysterious about water that the bible writers couldn’t explain? Well, the world itself is full of mysteries and only the deep is called to the deep.


THE OGBANJE CHILD and the four elements. from the book by Knight Fredel air spirit ogbanje

Ogbanje is not evil contrary to what Christianity says. An Ogbanje child from the second category possesses some sort of powers to heal the sick, bring fortunes and they usually come to the world as consolations to barren women who have been in quest of for the fruit of the womb. Some women especially the Ogbanje women who know themselves and what they stand for usually attract them consciously having known the type of people they are.The Ogbanje child has one very important task to earth people; the task to bring in healing to earth.

When I say healing, I mean it in every aspect of the word. Raising its (earth) vibration by awakening people just like I and many other Star Seeds are doing today, to heal and answer the parents prayers for children or to bring them good fortunes and wealth. The Ogbanje child is a special child with a special Soul and needs to be honored, not feared or discriminated.

The only thing is, they must not be angered, cheated or attempt to take their lives as they carry powerful forces that, just like every other human, they can get offended and may not spare you when angered.

Now the very thing that makes people sad about their stories is that the Ogbanje child usually does not live long enough because they usually have missions to accomplish too in other realms and other planets and so when their mission here or what they came for is accomplished, they go back to whence they came from.

But there are still some knowledgeable Chief Priests and Priestess who knows how to pacify them with sacrifices and asks their invincible powers of the marine kingdom to enable them live long enough for the highest good of all and the sake of their earthly siblings, lovers and those who so need them.

By such sacrifices and rituals, the Ogbanje child will live longer; another way to assist such Souls to live longer is by teaching the Ogbanje child to know who they are, hiding this truth from them and indoctrinating them with false religions will only worsen the situation.

Some parents ignorantly block their psychic centers and third eye through the priests and priestesses just because their child sees invincible beings that visit them at night. As they talk to people and share food with the invincible visitors, the parents at this point should let the Chief priests of priestess hand over certain knowledge to the child and soothe the spirits. By the time the child reaches adulthood or adolescent, they will be able to know why they are here and if such mission is accomplished, and their invincible beings comes to take them, they can, because of parental love and friends they have here or other desires they wish to complete for the highest good of all, decide to ask for more time to live longer and do more great things to earth people before they go. And those invincible beings will accept because they all understand the importance of freewill in this universe. They all respect freewill. So the Ogbanje child will even be in more control of their lives. They will no more just leave this world without notification. They will only leave this body when they want to because their psychic centers and third eye are not tampered with as they do to most Ogbanje’s today due to parental unawareness and the wrong advice’s from others who know nothing about spirituality.
In Nigeria, the Ogbanjes are very common within the Riverine areas of the country. States like Rivers State, Cross River State, Akwa Ibom, Abia, Imo , Bayelsa, Anambra, Edo etc. a traditional priest who is a friend of mine vividly told me that on his visit to a traditional function in the Fuga area of Auchi, that it was there he was told “Ise” means the same thing with Ogbanje.
The Black race is being deceived into embracing the white man’s foreign culture but they forget that white people will never accept any of the Black man’s culture and ideologies. Ask yourself this.

THE OGBANJE CHILD and the four elements. from the book by Knight Fredel air spirit ogbanje

If Ogbanje is evil, how come some European or American Hollywood/Bollywood movies portray mermaids as benevolent creatures of the sea? Why do some churches go to the river banks for spiritual and physical cleansing? Why is Roman Catholic always attracted to the water to the point of naming their Virgin Mary as the “The Lady and Star of The Sea”?
It is when you begin to ask yourself these pertinent questions that you will realize that so many African traditions are still in practice today in most religions of the world especially, Christianity which lends credence to the widely believed postulation that states that “Christianity copied from Paganism”.

According to a social media friend of mine, Sire Kelvin S. N, He wrote and I quote: White Man’s religion which should have been antithetical to the supposed African culture is regrettably an edited version of African spirituality.
Black man should read to emancipate himself/herself from ignorance. We just love to be fed with anything and we just eat without questioning.


The serpent has always been the symbol of the mother goddess and the marine kingdom/world. This is because snakes or serpents are the symbol of wisdom and knowledge.

In one of the passages in the bible from the book of proverbs (which was an ancient metaphorical esoteric book distorted and plagiarized by Christianity) wisdom was depicted as Sophia, in genesis it was symbolized by the wise serpent.

In this case all Ogbanje came from the marine world and are all sons and daughters of the Cosmic Mother, the Star of the Sea, and this makes all Ogbanje especially the ones who know who they really are to be very wise and knowledgeable.

Look at an Ogbanje child, very wise and intelligent in school, mostly they always pick the first positions and always ahead of their class mates in one way or the other and they say things that always makes people call them old souls.

Many Ogbanjes, due to the fact that their channels have been shut down, they seem not to know who they are and they tend to see snakes in their dreams (whom are their messengers and guides) instead of accepting them, they fear them and fear the ocean or even the swimming pool not knowing that; behind that fear, lies their treasure of discovering who they really are.

Some of the even see themselves transforming into snakes, yes all Ogbanjes are shape shifter’s, but many do not know it yet, this is why if you see an Ogbanje today, the way they will look in the morning many be extremely different from the way they will look at night, etc. reasons are they shape shift unconsciously without knowing it, their faces seem to change periodically, and that I call unconscious shape-shifting.

Therefore an Ogbanje can transform to a different person if well trained and believe me, there are those who can even as I write this at this moment. They are in our towns and many don’t know why they do such while some don’t even know when they do because they do lose their memory or the memory of such experience will be flashy in that case most of them think it was only a dream when it was, in reality a true phenomenon.
