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

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

Itadogun 4/3/2016

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 4/3/2016

This Itadogun IFA says that all those in search of compatible spouse will now be blessed with compatible spouse. IFA says that anyone looking for a spouse should appease their IFA with 2 fish and salt. IFA says that they will meet their destined spouse while traveling/commuting. On this IFA says:
Bobo so, bobo o so
Obo has no chieftaincy title in Esa land
Had it been that Obo has a title in Esa land
They would have named their babies ‘Ilesanmi’
And also ‘Garo’
Ifa’s messages to Orunmila
When going to marry Agbegbaleri
Offspring of Olojee Okoso
He was advised to offer sacrifice
He complied
Agbegbaleri, so you are in this land
And you did not come to visit us
So you are in this land

May Olodumare guide and guard us. Ase
Sincerely,
Apena Fagbemijo Amosun Fakayode
