The Principle of Give and Take Is What Make the World Peaceful and Habitable

Bu fun mi
Ki n bu fun o
Oun nii mayee gun igegeigege
Dia fun Orunmila
Baba n lo s’otu Ife
Yoo loo ko won ni ise ile
Yoo look o won ni’se oko
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
O gb’ebo, o ru’bo

Translation:
The principle of give and take
Is what make the world peaceful and habitable
This was Ifa’s message for Orunmila
When he was going to Ile Ife
To teach people home conduct
And to teach farm and work-place conduct
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied

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

ITADOGUN READING 9/26/2016

This Itadogun, IFA says that we will see blessing of longevity. IFA says that we should be making offering to ESU with one snail. On this IFA says:
Those who have the ability to jump can jump
Odee can jump
And Awero can jump
IFA’s message to ORUNMILA
When going on a military campaign from hill to hill
He was advised to offer sacrifice
He complied
My snail climbed up this time and I will not die
My snail had really climbed up

May OLODUMARE via the ORISA protect us this coming Itadogun period. ASE O

May this Crescent Moon Bless all IFA Devotees

May this Crescent Moon Bless all IFA Devotees

 

Whether the Orí of Ìká is tight
Or it is loose
It is one’s Orí that gives one the good fortunes
Cast divination for Dendere
The mother of the Moon crescent in heaven
‘Would I see good things at all’?
‘Would good things stay with me’? She had asked
She was asked to perform sacrifice
The Moon crescent performed the sacrifice
All the stars stayed with the moon
All good things stayed with her
She brought back many children
Ifá says he wishes this person well
He said whether the Orí of Ìká is tight
Or it is loose
It is one’s Orí that gives one the good fortunes
Cast divination for Dendere
The mother of the Moon crescent in heaven
She was asked to take care of the ground and perform
sacrifice
Dendere heard about the sacrifice
And performed it
Dendere is back
The mother of Moon crescent
Come and see the children she brought back from her
journey
Dendere is back
The mother of Moon Crescent
