Morning Prayer to Orunmila

I call upon Ire from the east, the west, the north, and the south to come and stay with me today
Olugbode is the name given to Aje
Olugbode is the name given to Aje
Aje please let me have you in my hands
Please let me have you in all my endeavors
The chameleon never lacks anything in his life
All blessings should come and answer me today
When the sun rises, it will rise for the whole world
There is nothing that can overpower the rising of the sun
So all my blessings, wherever you may be, I command you to come and stay with me
Orunmila, please go to Olodumare’s house and bring me my blessings
I’m looking for all blessings but my hands can’t grab or reach them
Orunmila, please go to Olodumare’s house and bring me all blessings in life

All the Rivers of the World Put Together Are Not as Remarkable as the Ocean

All the rivers of the world put together
Are not as remarkable as the Ocean
All the streams of the world put together
Are far less than the Lagoon
Cast Ifa for Orisanla Oseremagbo (Obatala)
On the day he was to be made king
When all the deities wanted to take away one of its powers
Orunmila refused to grant their wish, so did Elegbara
There is no Odu Ifa that takes precedence over Ejiogbe
The paramount Odu
Ejiogbe, you are the paramount Odu
Any river that does not recognize the pre-eminence of the Ocean
Will dry up completely
Before the savannah burns, it will first dry up
I request for wealth from Olosa, the second in command
I received this but not sufficiently
I requested for wealth from Olokun Seniade
The king of all rivers
I received but not sufficiently
Who does not know that it is only the wealth
Given by OLODUMARE that lasts for life?

Sow Humanness and Honesty Today for a Blissful Tomorrow

It is the big rod that torments the gong
Torrential rains reduce the ant-hill to mud
Osun Ewuji, desirous of eating and drinking
Crawled stealthily into the ocean
Cast IFA for Eyin-Iwa (Thereafter)
Who is the senior of Oni (Today)
You people of Isinpe
It is because of Eyin-Iwa
That we should be benevolent to Oni (Today)
For whatever seed we plant today
We shall reap the fruits tomorrow
Sow humanness and honesty today
For a blissful tomorrow

11/3/2018 ITADOGUN READING

11/3/2018 ITADOGUN READING
Aboru, Aboye. Greetings in OLODUMARE. On this Itadogun, IFA warns us against untimely death. IFA says that our hard work will be rewarded. IFA says that we should seek the advice of both the youth and the elders these coming weeks. On this IFA says we should all make an offering with plenty of palm oil to ESU ODARA. On this IFA says:
Bi e ba ri omo kekere l’ona
E f’oro lo o
Bi e a ri agbalagba l’ona
E f’oro lo o
A o mo eni baba re o kuu
Ti yoo f’eebu s’ile fun
Difa fun Onyagbe
A b’eeni oko tien-rere
Igba ti nr’oko ti ko r’ere je
Ebo ni wo ni ko waa se
O gb’ebo, o ru’bo
Ko pe, ko jinna
E wa ba ni ni jebutu ire gbogbo
Translation
If you meet with a youth on the road
Seek his opinion
If you meet with an elder on the road
Seek his opinion too
We will never know whose dead father had bequeathed good legacy until after his death
IFA’s messages for Onyagbe, the farmer
The one who had a vast expanse of farmland
When he was toiling without any successful reward
He was advised to offer Ebo, he heard and complied
Before long, not too far
Join us in the midst of all blessings

Who is Dependable Enough to Sleep On?

IFA teaches us who is dependable enough to sleep upon:
Orunmila declares that it is time for rest
I respond that it is time to sleep on top of someone
Ifa says that who is dependable enough to sleep upon?
I respond that our parents are dependable enough to sleep upon
I never knew that our parents are not worthy of sleeping upon at all
Orunmila declares that it is time for rest
I respond that it is time to sleep on top of someone
Ifa says that who is dependable enough to sleep upon?
I respond that our spouses are dependable enough for us to sleep upon
I never knew that our spouses are not worthy of sleeping upon at all
Orunmila declares that it is time to take a rest
I respond that it is time to sleep on top of someone
Ifa says that who is dependable enough to sleep upon?
I respond that our children are dependable enough to sleep upon
I never know that our children are not worthy of sleeping upon at all
I now declare my ignorance of who is dependable enough to sleep upon
Ifa if you program me to become wealthy
Ope agunka forever will I continue to sleep upon you
Ifa if you program me to be blessed with good kids
Ope agunka, forever will I continue to sleep upon you
Ifa if you program me to be blessed with all the good things of life
Ope agunka, forever will I continue to sleep on you
