IFA Will Help Us Mend the Broken World

Pa!! like the snapping of a rope
The broken rope, the Awo of the town of Itori
The gun dismantled and scattered on the floor
IFA’s revelation to ORUNMILA
When IFA was going to mend the world of the lovers of conflict
Like one mends a broken calabash
Who will help us mend this our broken world?
The leaves of a palm tree can bind
ORUNMILA will help one mend the broken world
The leaves of the palm can bind
IFA will help us mend the broken world
The leaves of the palm can bind
BARAPETU will help us mend the broken world
The leaves of the palm will bind

ITADOGUN READING — 3/27/2019

3/27/2019 ITADOGUN READING-
 
Greetings in OLODUMARE. This Itadogun period, IFA warns us against sickness and untimely death. IFA says that all those considering IFA initiations should do so. IFA says we should be making an offering of two orogbo (bitter kola) to SANGO. On this IFA says:
Asunmosi abidi jangele
Cast Ifa for one leg of Ogbe
When going on an Ifa mission to the home of Sango
He was advised to offer sacrifice
He heard and complied
One leg of Ogbe, Awo of Sango
Cast Ifa for Sango
When he was suffering from a serious ailment
And was crying to be able to rise up and be in good health
He was advised to offer sacrifice
And go to the stream for Ifa initiation
He complied
He went to the stream for Ifa initiation
After the initiation rites
He regained his strength
Please, Arira, the thunder, do not strike there
That home is inhabited by an Awo
Arira do not strike there
Travelers of Ipo and Ofa
The thunderstone will never be directed toward the home of Ifa

Orunmila Said His Followers Should Not Retaliate

The power of wealth dominates the world
An elderly spirit uses a lead walking stick
A devotee of Orunmila said there are enemies around him
He said it is high time he seeks revenge
Orunmila said his followers should not retaliate
He said he himself once sat silently without offending anybody
The Pangolin went to get 200 hoes to kill him
He said the 200 hoes stuck to its body and he died in shame
The power of wealth dominates the world
An elderly spirit uses a lead walking stick
A devotee of Orunmila said there are enemies around him
He said it is high time he seeks revenge
Orunmila said his followers should not retaliate
He said he himself once sat silently without offending anybody
The Porcupine went to get 200 arrows to kill him
He said the 200 arrows stuck to its body and he died in shame
The power of wealth dominates the world
An elderly spirit uses a lead walking stick
A devotee of Orunmila said there are enemies around him
He said it is high time he seeks revenge
Orunmila said his followers should not retaliate
He said he himself once sat silently without offending anybody
The Earthworm started saying bad things about him
He said then, the earthworm was unable to live comfortably in the house
He walks on the path and people used to trample it to death
Orunmila say we may meet the earthworm in the house
We may meet the earthworm outside
The earthworm will always sleep outside

We Have Seen Good Fortune, We Shall Not Die

When the market session ends
The chief of the market women still remains
Some important elders also remain
When Ifa becomes difficult
The less qualified Awo rise up and leave
Ifa divination performed for Orunmila
When he was going to see Odu
On the hill of Ikefun
We have seen Odu
We have seen good fortune
We have seen Odu
We have seen good fortune
We shall not die
We have seen Odu
We have seen good fortune

Gunnugun Did Good Deeds but He Became Bald-Headed in the Process

Gunnugun did good deeds but he became bald-headed in the process
Akalamagbo did good deeds only to be inflicted with goiter
Even some days, one will feel like not doing good deeds anymore
Oro did good deeds only to be left without roots
These were Ifa’s declarations to Okete, the Giant Rat
When going to initiate Oka, the Cobra, into Ifa
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
Now, Oka, if you swallow Okete
You have done a terribly evil deed
Erigi-Alo, Oka if you kill Ewusa, the big rat
You will surely die as the aftermath
Oka if you swallow Okete
You will have done a terrible despicable deed
