That which we are after is character
Good character
If one is rich without good character
The wealth belongs to someone else
That which we are after is character
Good character
If one is blessed with children but does not have good character
Those children belong to someone else
That which we are after is character
Good character
If one is blessed with property but they do not have good character

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

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
Hot-headedness
Refusal to heed advice
Will make a person miss their destined blessings

Excessive Anger Portrays Their Upbringing

Excessive anger portrays their upbringing
He who ignores mediation easily exposes himself
You have come again with your bad attitude will only give one a bad name
These were the IFA revelations for Oka, the Cobra
And also for Ere, the Boa Constrictor
And for Sebe, the Black snake
And for Nini, the Colorful snake
When they were going to Alapa-nirawe, King in the house of Oniyanja
They were advised to offer Ebo
Only Nini complied with the advice
Truly, we have installed Nini as Oba (King)
It is the misbehavior of Oka that ruined his career
We have installed Nini as Oba
It is the misbehavior of Ere that ruined his career
We have installed Nini as Oba
It is the misbehavior of Sebe that ruined his future
Truly, we have installed Nini as Oba

4/17/2015 ITADOGUN

4/17/2015 ITADOGUN

 

This Itadogun, IFA warns us against untimely death. IFA says that we should all be appeasing EGBE ORUN with white beans as well as other food stuff including sweets, and cool water. IFA says that it will be our companions in Orun (EGBE) who will come to our rescue.

 

On this IFA says:
Little children use their eyes as lamp in darkness
Casts divination for Egbe
Egbe was coming from heaven to the earth
He was asked to offer sacrifice
A group of Egbe  was coming from heaven to the earth
When they slept
Their sleep would be full of nightmares
They would see their mates in heaven
There were told to take care of their Egbe
They wished them a lot of good things
They told them that if they slept here
They would be dreaming about the ones in heaven
On waking from the sleep
They would be seeing the ones here
They told them to get Èkuru funfun
So that the heavenly mates would have to eat
You would have rest, they told them
They then offered the sacrifice
They had rest
And therefore created Associations
And named it an Associations on earth
It is the Association in heaven that would protect the
sanctity of the one on earth
They then started to dance and rejoice
They were praising their Babaláwo
Their Babaláwo was praising lfa
They said it was exactly as their Babaláwo predicted
 It is little children that uses their eyes as lamp in darkness
Casts divination for Egbe
Egbe was coming from heaven to the earth
He was asked to take care of the ground
And offer sacrifice
Please don’t let us be dishonored
Rather, for the Association on earth to be dishonored
The one in heaven would not allow it
Please don’t let us be humiliated

May Olodumare guide and guard us. Ase

The Life of the Moon is More Pleasant than that of the Sun…

Sacred holy mysterious ODU IFA OYEKU OFUN teaches us that IFA leads us to peace and contentment in life. The ODU says that IFA will never hurt us, but IFA is gentle and healing, like the light of the moon.
On this IFA says:
Yam develops big tuber when the festival is close
A frog sounds happily hearing the sound of the rain
It is coco yam that spreads its roots and claims large space
Ifa revelation to Tookiola, a beloved child of Ajalorun
He consulted Ifa on how to have pleasant life
He was advised to make ebo
He complied
Ifa, do not you deserve praise?
Ifa, you really deserve praise
The life of the Moon is more pleasant than that of the Sun
It does not smart the body
It does not bite the body
Also, it is not painful to the body

May IFA continue to shine its healing light on us all. Ase O

Apena Fagbemijo Amosun Fakayode
