Honest People Are Rare, Good People Are Even More Rare

Honest people are rare
Good people are even more rare
When I see no reliable person to talk to
I keep my thoughts within
Cast divination for Obaluaye
When suffering for lack of good people to talk to
Orunmila declares that it is true
Ifa sees the mind
Mother Earth sees the wicked
Those who do good
The Heavens know

Itadogun Reading 4/6/2017

IFA divination will be performed every Itadogun (every 17 days) and information will be posted detailing what offerings should be made following each Itadogun.

Itadogun Reading 4/6/2017

IFA says on this Itadogun that we will see blessings of longevity. IFA says that we must not abandon the traditions of our forefathers. IFA says that we must not forget about EGUNGUN (Ancestors). On this IFA says we should all be making offerings to EGUNGUN with alcohol (gin/rum/etc), cool water, and food stuffs this Itadogun.
On this IFA says:
The big Tete plant in the frontage of the house
Cast IFA for the inhabitants of Odomegbe
Where they woke up and they did not know the rites of their paternal ancestors
They were advised to offer Ebo
They complied
Now we have a father today
Inhabitants of Odomegbe
We have a father today
We have a father
The travelers of Odomegbe
We have a father

Those Who Do Well, The Heavens Surely Know

IFA says, “What a pity!”
I also say, “What a pity!”
It is a great pity for the antelope
Offspring of Olu Igbo, Ruler of the Forest
IFA says, “What a shame!”
I also respond, “What a shame!”
It is a shame for the deer
Offspring of Olu Odan, Ruler of the Plains
No matter how large an issue may be
It cannot be dissected with a knife
This is IFA’s declaration to the benevolent
Who was being accused of wickedness
IFA sees the mind
MOTHER EARTH sees the wicked
Those who do well
The heavens surely know

Hold On To Me, So That I Also Can Hold Onto You

Hold onto me
So that I also can hold onto you
The elephant held onto it and become big
Hold onto me
So that I also can hold onto you
The buffalo held onto it and become big
Hold onto me
So that I also can hold onto you
Agbamirere (another type of animal) held onto it and enjoyed long life
Ifa revelation to the Iyere on the tree as well as the Iyere on the palm tree
Ope, I hold onto you
Please, do not let me fall off
The Iyere that hold onto the tree does not fall off
Alade, I hold onto you
Please, do not let me fall off
The Iyere that hold onto the tree does not fall off
Nobody who seeks protection from Ope dies prematurely


A Fallen Tree Cannot Change Its Position

A fallen tree cannot change its position
Cast IFA for Ire, Blessings
Son of Oniwani
He was advised to offer Ebo
He complied
He who wants good things in life
Must exercise patience
Lack of patience
Refusal to heed advice
Will make a person miss their destined blessings
