A Journey of Self-Discovery
Samuel Oritsejimi Iyinbo alias The Roving Messenger and #DonIlluminati is the CEO of Illumination e-Learning Centre and Illuminati Ventures. He was born on Christmas Eve into a Catholic and Mystical family. From an early age, he started having several mystical experiences which he thought was normal for everyone and certain spiritual revelations which he thought was a joke, and never really cared about nor understood until he became awakened to Self. He shares his story not to call attention to himself (for he is actually a very private person) but hopes that by sharing his story and insights it would also inspire you to discover your Self.
A brilliant mind, after he finished Secondary School with good grades he immediately got admission to study Medicine and Surgery at the University of Nigeria Nsukka in 1995, following the wishes of his parent who are in that field.
The Infamous Warri Crises
However, the story of his education would not be complete without the chapter of the infamous “Warri crises” in the years 1997, 1998, 1999 between the Itsekiris, Ijaws and Urhobos which caused a lot of destruction of lives and properties in the City of Warri and where he had to be drafted to defend his community.
Going back to school after the crises he got disenchanted about the course and he decided to drop out of Medical school in 2000, however, his Parents thought it was because of the environment and everything that happened got him admission into the newly opened private University, Igbinedion University, Okada to see if he could fulfil their dreams to become a Medical Doctor.
However, over the years, Samuel quickly realized that it was not by going to school to get a good degree that guarantees one a good job or life, moreover, he never wanted to own a business and become an employer of labour, not an employee to work under someone. So he looked into the future and saw that Computers, Information technology and Business technologies were the things of the future and after considering his strengths and interests, in 2001, inspired by the likes of Bill Gates who did the same, he finally threw in the towel to study Medicine and Surgery. Unfortunately, his Parents would have none of it and resolved not to sponsor his education and at a time was ostracized from the family, thinking that “Samuel would finally come to his senses”.
Determined to forge ahead, and without anyone willing to sponsor his education and vision, he sponsored himself, by selling items on buses to raise money to fulfil his dreams.
THE SCHOOL OF HARDKNOCKS
Samuel recollects that this was amongst one of the most humbling experiences he ever had in his life, which was to drop out of Medical School from one of the most expensive Universities in Nigeria and the most prestigious, only to end up selling stuff on buses.
He used the money to attend several seminars in Information Technology and Business in 2001 and later on obtained a diploma in Information Technology and continues learning new things over the internet. In 2009 he was among the winners of the national reality TV show the Entrepreneur’s Tv showcasing one of his internet business creations.
Samuel believes that the educational system in Nigeria is flawed and not in line with the current reality of the times where graduates are not able to defend their degrees and therefore opted to constantly improve himself by taking on new courses online, while part-time attending Nigerian Universities to obtain the degrees Nigerians are accustomed to.
In 2003, he registered his first company with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria as “Illuminati Ventures” (the enlightened ones) and employed several people including graduates to work for him.
- Over the years he was able to design websites and social media consultant for over 60 different clients including the Edo State Government and several notable individuals
- Video game centre
- Sports betting agent
- Business centre,
- Computer training
- Illumination E-learning centre, Innovation Hub and Jobcentre
- Internet Business Academy, information marketing and blogger.
A pioneer in several ventures and ideas, Samuel used to say to his close friends that he felt like Moses who could bring water out of stone, because he had a lot of money making ideas and was good at implementing them, even though there have always been business challenges along the way, he always got things going, however, it soon turned out that he needed to divert his intelligence into something more deeper.
Soon into 2010, (till now) he noticed a lot of uproar on the internet over the name “Illuminati” because of all the fake news and groups/organizations on the internet and several films about the Illuminati and because of this almost lost some of his clients and jobs and had to modify his company name to Illumination Concepts.
In 2016, after his “Awakening” or giving into “his calling” he created a video “Exposing the Illuminati“. (It is only the eye that knows that sees.)
Samuel Iyinbo is an avid reader and deep thinker. He developed his own philosophy from the teachings of Jesus the Christ, the Buddha, Sufism, Christian Mysticism, Hermes Trismegistus, the Essene brotherhood, ancient Egyptian mysteries and ancient Greek philosophers and from modern philosophers such as Napoleon Hill, Les Brown, Bob Proctor, Anthony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Victor Hansen and several others and from musical legends like Tupac Shakur.
From the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus “As Above So Below” and from the teachings and the Lord’s prayer of Jesus the Christ “…Let your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”, and with an understanding of Spiritual Alchemy, Samuel was able to get an insight into one of the mysteries of Life, the reason for our existence and on the role of truth and postulated with the aid of a jigsaw puzzle the video :
“In Truth, Everything is Connected”
THE AWAKENING AND MISSION
There is a popular saying that life begins at 40. So just around the time, Samuel turned 40 years old, his spiritual experiences and revelations, intensified. Before then, he didn’t know what to make of it or what to do nor did he really care. However, he noticed that even when he was applying his intelligence in making money from the various businesses he felt a void, a deep yearning that there was something he needed to do but did not know what it was and even when the spiritual impulses were coming, he was too pre-occupied with managing his various businesses to “listen and act”
THE THREE BIBLE VERSES THAT GOT HIM TO CHANGE FOCUS
God is a jealous God. "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me" Exodus 20:3
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24
"No one who puts a hand to the plough and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God" Luke 9:62
So it was not until the near collapse of his business after a series of catastrophic events which led him to a state of depression (which he prefers to call a state of deep rest, reflection and reset), the only thing which kept his sanity was his realization that “nothing happens by chance” and “within every challenge is the seed for greatness” .
The Importance of the Journal
Ever since he was a child he was advised to keep a personal journal or diary to write all his experiences and dreams and so by going over his journals which he has written most of his life experiences since he was young, he was able to discover a trend. (Please try to keep a journal and record all your dreams and experiences in life, it will guide you a lot to know yourself). He understood that all that happened to him from his childhood, dreams, experiences and what was happening to him were for a higher purpose, for instance, he noticed because of his unique experiences and ability to speak well, several people most of whom were in pretty bad conditions of life and who sought his counsel, he was able to motivate and advice them on how to change their lifestyles for the better. He has been called to speak and address youth events in public and he is able to connect with his audience because he speaks from his heart based on sincere experiences.
He also realized that he could use all his skills as a web designer, blogger and social media expert to spread the unique messages he continuously receives from God in order to raise the consciousness of humanity just as he has been raised to a certain level of awareness.
The Christ Consciousness and Archangel Michael
Samuel believes that the spirit of ArchAngel Michael is to bring about Truth and Justice and to destroy the works of the devil, the prince of this world and that there will be an infusion of the Christ consciousness into the hearts of all of humanity whether it will come through one person or through a spiritual awakening of several people, he believes this is the second coming of Christ akin to the rapture Christians often talk about.
The Roving Messenger believes that the world is undergoing a paradigm shift on a Cosmic scale, the so-called last days which is the gradual end of the old age (the Piscean Age) and the ushering of a new one (the Aquarian Age). This gradual shift is characterised by an increased means of communications (internet, cable tv, etc) to aid in the “outpouring of the Holy Spirit” the Light of Truth, as many more “Messengers” and people are being awakened or born into the world to dissipate the darkness of ignorance, the works of the devil.
And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; yea, and on my menservants and my maidservants in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and manifest day. And it shall be that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. – (Joel 2: 28-32 , Acts 2: 14-21 , John 14:15-26; John 16:5-16; Acts 2:1-13; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 19:1-7)
Ignorance, false prejudices and the bringing to light of things which were hidden, misunderstood or distorted, all these things which have led the world to ignorance and darkness, the works of the devil, all these would be destroyed as the Cosmic Light of Truth and Justice, through the power of the Holy Spirit is poured out into the hearts of humanity to usher in a Golden Age of truth, understanding and justice.
Man KnowThyself” is a popular adage among those on the spiritual path. Humanity is evolving to the next stage of spiritual evolution and as the earth is evolving according to Cosmic laws, so too must humans. We are in those times when there is a high influx of spiritual messages from the Heavenly realms beamed to guide humanity to the next stage of spiritual evolution. The people who are able to pick up these messages and deliver them are called Messengers, Earth or Incarnated Angels, Prophets, Light Workers, Realized or Conscious beings or Ascended Masters, these are people with one mission, to come to earth to guide humanity. Accordingly, the messages which I share are messages for self-realization, for one to evolve, to realize themselves and evolve from being the Son of Man to become True Sons and Daughters of God. These inspired messages often come at unexpected moments and I share as them as posts, videos and podcasts under the name The Roving Messenger. I also share on this page inspired messages from other people which I think are worth sharing. A compendium of my works are on this my personal website, www.TheRovingMessenger.com. Thank you for stopping by and God bless you.
Samuel believes that he is on a journey to Self-Mastery. He does not claim to be perfect nor to have attained any exalted state but simply using his gifts and present realization to help others along the way.
