Iya J. (pronounced "Eeeyah Jay")

Oyinleye Ajala a.k.a Janiqwa Nganga

From tackling unfortunate circumstances to revealing the necessary things required for you to fulfill your destiny, my role is to guide those that I am destined to help on a path of enlightenment.  I have acquired many titles such as shaman, healer, priestess, spiritualist, conjurer, etc. None is more significant than just simply being a Wise Woman who knows her purpose.  I’m fueled by that alone.  My commitment to fulfilling my own destiny with excellency motivates me to go the extra mile to make sure clients are fully satisfied with my work.


  Furthermore, MY MISSION is to...

(1) Bring global understanding & preservation of Traditional Kongolese Spirituality and culture, as well as dispel myths or negative perceptions of this base branch african spiritual system. In doing so, I will also provide awareness of destiny based (Fa) concepts established within the Kongolese culture, the Kongo spiritual connections to the ancient Kemetic religious beliefs, and appease my patriclan.

(2) Incorporate the healing powers of the Divine Feminine and channel messages as a Womb Oracle & Divine Fem Coach from my matriclan to assist women in healing and overcoming challenges in such areas as reproduction, sexuality, relationships (particularly trauma from past lovers, love triangles) and connection to various Divine Feminine energies including their own Matriclans.

(3) Pioneer spiritual practices that activate and encourage a "Magick of Thyself" concept by balancing the dual energies of Light (Divine Masculine) & Dark (Divine Feminine) which exist in everyone.  Some of these practices will be supported by working with the Kundalini/Osumare energies.  Thus using these techniques to spiritually coach others through life in order to create generations that evolve and survive this current spiritual shift into higher dimensions of reality.  

(4) Provide guidance and healing as an Ifa Orisha Priestess with speciality in the areas of:

  • Egbe (Spiritual Court) "gift" development

  • Balancing Eji Ogbe (an Ifa Odu/Sign)  energies & Ori (Higher Consciousness) appeasement

  • Representing my personal ideology of "Osun the Vulture: Osun on the Throne" and "Yemo, Mother of the Universe".  My representation of Osun (Oshun) and Yemo (Yemowo) is to depict Melanin Women of Honor, Authority, and Influence.


I have studied and trained in many spiritual systems as shown below.  However, I was born in Savannah, Georgia which has always been "home" no matter where I go.  I also lived in Summerville, South Carolina, for 7 of my childhood years. Therefore, being born and raised in the Gullah Geechee areas of the country, I include much of my cultural background into my spiritual practices.  With that, I would say I formally started out as a Hoodoo practitioner, transitioned to a trained Spiritualist/Medium and then I progressed from there into Priesthood.  Furthermore, I have traced my ancestry on my father's side back to 4 tribes of the Kingdom of Kongo and my mother's side of 1 particular tribe back to Sudan and the ancient Kingdom of Kush.  This has all led to a very interesting spiritual journey for me. So despite all my initiations, training, travel, ancestral discoveries, and spiritual houses I've been apart of, it all just circled me back to where I started except on a more elevated level.


I have listed my credentials for those who seek validation for my extensive spiritual work and services.  In addition to a BS in Engineering, 11 years as an Aeronautics Software Engineer and over 20 years of Engineering and Software Development experience (hence my Hoodoo App)... the following are the spiritual practices I have initiated into and trained within, as well as some lineage information:
