This Itadogun Ifa warns us against sickness. Ifa says that there are those who are working against us and want to see us fail. Ifa says that there are detractors who want to cause us trouble and see us stumble, so they can ridicule us for falling short of our destinies.
Ifa says that we are all unique creations of OLODUMARE and that by heeding to the advise of ritual sacrifices, and through our devotion to Ifa, nothing can stop us from achieving our greatest goals on Earth.
Ifa says that those detractors who try to cause us problem will only cut and make themselves bleed if they try to grab us or get to close to us. On this, Ifa says that we should be making offerings to our Ikin Ifa with Labelabe (blade-grass) and omi tutu (cool water).
On this Ifa says:
Ogbe tun mo pon
Ogbe sun mo si
Ogbe sun mo si ribiribi idi
Agbapon omo ni o lere
A difa fun Labelabe
Tii solori ikola lodo
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se o
O gbebo o rubo
Ko pe ko jinna
E waa ba ni bayo
E waa wo re o
Nje gbogbo ewi pe gba nigbo
Okan o ri bii Labelabe
Labelabe nii solori ikola lodo
Ogbe strap strap the baby to your back
Ogbe adjust the baby properly
Ogbe move the baby to the curve of the hip
Strapping another person’s baby to one’s back brings one no benefit
Ifa’s message to Labelabe, the Blade grass
Who was to be the head of one’s who make tribal marks by the river’s edge
He was advised to make sacrifice
Before long, Not far
join us in the midst of happiness
Come and see all the blessings of life
There are 200 different kinds of leaves in the forest
But not a single one is like that of Labelabe
Labelabe, you are the head of the tribal mark inscribers by the river’s edge
May Olodumare guide us and protect us. Ase O

Abore Aboye Baba,
I’m on my way back to Kuwait from the US. I’m currently in London waiting for my flight. How can I order some blade grass? Do you have it available on the Orisha Market web site?
