It is our mission to help people connect with Spirit and in doing so, help them to follow their destiny and to be the best person they can be.

“Ifa, do you not 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.”

-Sacred Odu Ifa OYEKU OFUN

With Care and Compassion Do We Collect the Eggs of the Chicken

Kekenke — to be favored — the Awo of Kekenke
Gegenge — to be pampered — the Awo of Gegenge
These are the ones who cast IFA for Orimonikee
The one who had the support of their ORI (Head) from the ORUN (Spiritual Realm)
IFA, please continue to favor me
ORI, please continue to show me favor
Fellow human beings in life, please keep favoring me and loving me
With care and compassion do we collect the eggs of the chicken


Itadogun Reading 7/14/2018

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 Reading 7/14/2018

This Itadogun IFA warns us against contention. IFA says that we must not fight/argue this Itadogun. IFA says that we must not be greedy or miserly this Itadogun. IFA says that those who were doing good by people, yet were being taken advantage of, these people should not fret. They should leave the matter to OLODUMARE. IFA says that they will reap what they sow, both those who do good and those who do evil. IFA says that we should all be making an offering with 2 fish (eja) to IFA. IFA says victory will belong to those who take heed. On this IFA says:
The cactus did good deeds
But decided that he will not do good deeds any longer
They turn the generous people into foolish ones
The problem that a generous person encounters
That problem caused him to receive 2000 cowries
If a miserly person comes
They will ensure that he pays every penalty instead
IFA’s declaration to Odidere
When all blessings were coming from behind
And he declared that his blessings were in front of him
He was advised to offer Ebo
He complied
Before long, not far
Join us in the midst of all Ire

May OLODUMARE protect us and provide for us. Ase O

Those We Taught Wisdom and Understanding but Refuse to Accept…

The dog that we taught wisdom but who refused to learn
The dog will become the dog of Elegbara
The ram that we taught wisdom that refused to accept
The ram shall become the ram of Imole
Those human beings that we taught wisdom and understanding, but who refuse to accept
They shall live with regret for the rest of their lives
Ifa’s message for Orunmila
When going to start swimming in the ocean
He was advised to offer Ebo
He complied
Gently, Orunmila
The Akoko of the high sea
He who trained as a swimmer in the ocean
He who provides for one as an Oba

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

This Itadogun, IFA says we will see success and blessings of prosperity. IFA says we will see the support and blessings of IFA. On this IFA says we should all be making offering to IFA with honey and gin/snaaps. The honey should be mixed with the alcohol and used to appease IFA. Also any person present should be taking taste of the mixture. On this IFA says:

Orun Kankan oke
He cast Ifa for Aikulola
Their offspring in Iporo land
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
Ifa says that it will give me support
Solidly, does Erigi Alo give support to its devotees

May Olodumare guide and guard us. Ase
