The spiritualities of Ndi-Igbo are in their culture, which places them on the right tracks of life because it's powerful, Their spiritualities are who they are, it's their life, Ndi-Igbo by nature are spiritual beings, they connect with the universe. 

The spiritualities of Ndi-Igbo is pure, holy and sinless, we are truthful and honest creation, Not until the colonialist came and imposed a man-made religion on us, did the colonizers demonise everything we had. The Religion that was imposed on Ndi-Igbo by colonialists are organization for immoral behaviour, Religion was created by the Western world to control people's minds because there was no religion in Ala Igbo when they invaded our land, Religion was brought in by colonisers to our land, any religion in Ala Igbo does not belong here. 

We knew our creator before they brought death to us Known as "religion", we are spiritual and not religious people, In religion, you study God in spirituality, and we are revealed, because our spirituality starts with our language, Every clan in Ala Igbo has a Chi, the difference is the names and believes practices.

Religion never existed in Ala Igbo before the advent of Christianity, All that we had and practised was spirituality based on the natural order, Our ancestors knew our creator, "Chiukwu Okike Abiama", and we communicated with Him through our deities or Ndi Ezemmuo, Igbo spirituality is about communication with the one universal creator " Chiukwu Okike Abiama" through deities in the footsteps of our ancestors, that is why every time a person dies another person is born when a soul leaves a body, it looks for a new body to occupy, because the previous body had returned to the soil, and the soul will continue to live, that is why a newly born baby's soul is not new, it's old, and needs to be respected, our souls don't die but recycled and returned. 

Our Spirituality is Nature and it predates religion which is man-made. These two things are different, Our forefathers lived according to the nature they believed, once you passed away you still existed in a spiritual form, and the colonisers dehumanized and isolated them from nature, as we are today because they wanted to accomplish their wishes for us Ndi-Igbo, the colonial masters came and ended our spiritualities with violence because our spirituality was against corruption and crime. Every religion in Ala Igbo is man-made, heaven and hell are weapons used by religion to manipulate and control their followers for their selfish interest, but Ndi-Igbo's spirituality and beliefs are just pure heart, can't imagine an outsider "colonizers" coming from Europe to define our spirituality and yet others follow as if they know us better than we do, we have always believed in supreme being and intermediaries, like our ancestors, which the colonizers misinterpreted it to be ancestral worship, we don't worship our ancestors because they are intermediary between us and Chiukwu Okike our Creator.

Religion is systemically fighting spirituality, actually Religion is gangsterism, recruiting people to protect economic and political interests, and their excuses that humans are imperfect, don't judge, just leave it for God, forgetting that our spiritualities are oneness with nature, because Chiukwu Okike Abiama manifests Himself through nature, it is high time we start from where our ancestors ended, we have to make use of there ways of life because our spirituality is Godliness and it's above Religion. 

Our spirituality is a spirituality of freedom.
