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

The Greeting of OLODUMARE Is More Than That of 200 Human Beings

The working of the grinding stone
And the functioning of the grinding-stone
Pregnancy makes the breasts protrude
IFA’s message for the one who people were discrediting
But who OLODUMARE was supplementing
He was advised to offer EBO
He complied
If someone refuses to greet me
Let the person sit down
The greeting of OLODUMARE is more than that of 200 human beings
If someone refuses to salute me
Let the person be seated
The greeting of my ORI is more than that of 200 human beings
If someone refuses to compliment me
Let the person go and sit down
The greeting of my IFA is more than that of 200 human beings

I Cannot Practice Ifa’s Business Without Being Recognized

The hoopoe landed on Iroko tree
And was making kafe-kafe sound
Ifa’s message for Ọrunmila
When he had no money to spend
He was advised to offer Ẹbọ
He complied
I cannot practice Ifa’s business without being recognized
It is Ogumo that authorizes my being given recognition
Let people send others to come for me in front
And send many more others to come for me from behind
I cannot practice Ifa’s business without being recognized

Hoes, No Matter How Strong, Cannot Till the Land on Their Own

Hoes, no matter how strong
They cannot till the land on their own
Cutlasses, no matter how tough
They cannot clear the bush for themselves
The basket used to carry yam tubers
It cannot turn yam tuber into pounded yam on its own
Human beings are their supporters
Cast IFA for the Human Beings
When coming from Heaven to Earth
They were advised to make sacrificial rites
They heard the call and complied
Who are the supporters of Human Beings…?
Is it not IFA?
Is it not ORI?
Is it not OLODUMARE?

I Paid the Due of Destiny and I Have Peace of Mind

Whenever hunger comes
A large chunk of food is used to appease it
This is IFA’s declaration for Teyingbiwa
Who was advised to pay the due of his destiny in Heaven
He heard and complied
I pay the due of destiny and I have peace of mind
I have fulfilled the obligations of my destiny in Heaven and there is peace in my life on Earth



IFA says that these coming weeks we will see blessings of wealth and abundance. IFA says that things have been hard lately for us all financially, but that things will now turn around. IFA says that all devotees should make offerings with 2 fish to IFA. It is through our devotion to OLODUMARE via IFA that we will see all blessings in life. OLODUMARE, ORI, and IFA are our true support on Earth. On this IFA says:
The wisdom of Ako
The foolishness of Ako
As wise as Ako is, he cannot come home
As foolish as Ako is, he cannot be sold into slavery
The elder who left his own home
And was moving about other people’s homes
Is the person called Ako
Let the occupant of the house use caution
Let the occupant of the house show meekness
With arms akimbo, he will march majestically
He will walk majestically with arms akimbo
IFA’s messages to Oninaaja-Agunyin
Offspring of the ORI which was in search of a befitting cap
And of beaded waist and buttocks in search of a mule to mount as a horse
He engaged in merchandise in several lands
But he had no profit to shown for his efforts
He was advised to enter into partnership with ORUNMILA
He complied and offering the sacrifice
One cannot enter into partnership with ORUNMILA
For one not to have the profit of wealth
Wealth is it which attracts spouse
One cannot enter into partnership with ORUNMILA
For one not to have the profit of spouse
Spouse is it which attracts children
One cannot enter into partnership with ORUNMILA
For one not to have the profit of children
Children are that which attracts a befitting home
One cannot enter into partnership with ORUNMILA
For one not to have the profit of a house
House is it which attracts horses
Horses shall we mount in our IFA enterprises
Unless EJIOGBE is not the King of all ODU IFA
Horses shall we mount in our IFA enterprises

May Olodumare guide and guard us. Ase
