4/28/2019 ITADOGUN READING
 
This Itadogun period, IFA says that we will see blessings of wealth and prosperity. IFA says that we should all be appeasing ORISA AJE (WEALTH) with 2 bananas, honey, and cool water. On this IFA says:
Iwori tutu nini Awo Alara
A difa fun Alara
Alara nsunkun own o laje lowo
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
Ko si bo Aje
O gbebo o rubo
Aje je de rubo Awo
Owinniwinni
Aje je de rubo Awo
Owinniwinni
Translation:
Iwori tutu the Awo of Alara
Cast IFA for Alara
When Alara was feeling distraught because he had no money
He was advised to offer sacrifice
He heard and complied
Aje now strolls into the home of Awo
Owinniwinni
Aje strolls into the home of Awo
Owinniwinni

May Wealth come strolling into our homes. Ase O

Sincerely,
Apena Fagbemijo Amosun Fakayode

New Books Available Now From Oyeku Ofun Temple!

We are proud to present the following two new titles:

 

Orisa Aje:
Orisa of Immeasurable Wealth

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Have you ever wondered why some people are wealthy and others are in rags? It is not just the having or the lack of having of cash tender. We all know of stories of those who rise from rags to riches or of those who fall from riches to rags… There is a mysterious divine force called AJE that is beyond the concept of physical money. In fact, AJE is the very potential force of the energy of wealth itself! This book will look into the mystery of AJE, and leave the reader with a better understanding of what is AJE. We will also explore why and how to propitiate AJE, outlining some basic prayers and rituals to AJE that will help bring betterment and well-being to the practitioner’s life. To get a fuller and more comprehensive understanding of ORISA AJE, we will also explore some Ese Ifa (verses of Odu Ifa) that discuss AJE as well as Oriki for AJE (sacred prayer poetry).

Ifa Medicine

            

ABOUT THE BOOK:
This is a book of medicinal preparations I have compiled from my studies in IFA. This book is designed to help initiated priests and priestesses of IFA to learn the preparations and rituals in the book, and in the process of doing so, the book is also intended to help the reader understand how to decipher the esoteric messages of IFA and how to interpret those messages to make medicine. This book is intended for initiated priests and priestesses of IFA (Babalawo and Iyanifa), and not for the uninitiated. I pray this book reaches many hands and that many
will benefit from the information within it.

IFA Will Help Us Mend the Broken World

Pa!! like the snapping of a rope
The broken rope, the Awo of the town of Itori
The gun dismantled and scattered on the floor
IFA’s revelation to ORUNMILA
When IFA was going to mend the world of the lovers of conflict
Like one mends a broken calabash
Who will help us mend this our broken world?
The leaves of a palm tree can bind
ORUNMILA will help one mend the broken world
The leaves of the palm can bind
IFA will help us mend the broken world
The leaves of the palm can bind
BARAPETU will help us mend the broken world
The leaves of the palm will bind

ITADOGUN READING — 3/27/2019

3/27/2019 ITADOGUN READING-
 
Greetings in OLODUMARE. This Itadogun period, IFA warns us against sickness and untimely death. IFA says that all those considering IFA initiations should do so. IFA says we should be making an offering of two orogbo (bitter kola) to SANGO. On this IFA says:
Asunmosi abidi jangele
Cast Ifa for one leg of Ogbe
When going on an Ifa mission to the home of Sango
He was advised to offer sacrifice
He heard and complied
One leg of Ogbe, Awo of Sango
Cast Ifa for Sango
When he was suffering from a serious ailment
And was crying to be able to rise up and be in good health
He was advised to offer sacrifice
And go to the stream for Ifa initiation
He complied
He went to the stream for Ifa initiation
After the initiation rites
He regained his strength
Please, Arira, the thunder, do not strike there
That home is inhabited by an Awo
Arira do not strike there
Travelers of Ipo and Ofa
The thunderstone will never be directed toward the home of Ifa

Orunmila Said His Followers Should Not Retaliate

The power of wealth dominates the world
An elderly spirit uses a lead walking stick
A devotee of Orunmila said there are enemies around him
He said it is high time he seeks revenge
Orunmila said his followers should not retaliate
He said he himself once sat silently without offending anybody
The Pangolin went to get 200 hoes to kill him
He said the 200 hoes stuck to its body and he died in shame
The power of wealth dominates the world
An elderly spirit uses a lead walking stick
A devotee of Orunmila said there are enemies around him
He said it is high time he seeks revenge
Orunmila said his followers should not retaliate
He said he himself once sat silently without offending anybody
The Porcupine went to get 200 arrows to kill him
He said the 200 arrows stuck to its body and he died in shame

An elderly spirit uses a lead walking stick
A devotee of Orunmila said there are enemies around him

Orunmila said his followers should not retaliate
He said he himself once sat silently without offending anybody
The Earthworm started saying bad things about him
He said then, the earthworm was unable to live comfortably in the house
He walks on the path and people used to trample it to death
Orunmila say we may meet the earthworm in the house
We may meet the earthworm outside
The earthworm will always sleep outside
