Orishada recent trip to the diaspora, I was honored to reconnect with Oloye Fasina Falade, the Olubikin of Ile Ife, who currently resides in California, USA. This man is the root of the Aworeni family in the diaspora, and has done much to support Oke Tase, and to spread Ifa throughout the world.

He was initiated into Ifa in May of 1986 by the late Araba of Ile Ife, Fasuyi Omopariola. He later received Odu and his chieftaincy title from the current Araba Oluisese Agbaye, Adisa Mokanranwale Aworeni Awoyemi. Oloye Fasina created the first website on the internet (Ijo Orunmila) promoting traditional African spiritual culture. He also started one of the first Ifa Temples in the diaspora, Ara Ifa Ijo Orunmila of Los Angeles, which operated under the odu Osa Tura.

He was one of the first Awo in the diaspora to wear the green and brown ide and ileke Ifa. He has made many trips to Ile Ife, and has done much to support the Ifa temple and annual Odun Ifa at Oke Tase. We must never forget our progenitors, and those who have paved the way for worshipers in the diaspora to reconnect with the source. Other esteemed elders include Sangobukola Odunfa (Kay Fields), Baba Ogunlade John Turpin, and Oloye Yagbe Onilu the Agbakin of Ile Ife. The legacy of Oloye Fasina Falade continues through those he has taught and initiated, including Oloye Fayomi Falade Aworeni, Iya Abiye Awo Agbaye.

We thank Olodumare for the many blessings bestowed upon Oloye Fasina, and pray for continued blessings. May the Aworeni family continue to show gratitude and appreciation for our elders. May we continue to develop our character and speak the truth.

Happy Annual World Ifa Festival {Odun Ifa Agbaye Oke Agbonmiregun 2018} in advance.

A man is a unique being that greatly compliments a woman. He brings stability and balance in the lives of those that honor him. Honor is a confident boast that unlocks the treasure within a man. It is important to know the right key, when and how to use it, in order to unlock his treasures . Use it right and he is able to make a dry land fertile. The man you respect, will give you the key to his life.

Each time a man receives respect,honor, reverences or any type of praise , he is channeled into being the god that can turn dreams of a woman, home, lives, nations, etc into reality. He will win your battle. Your war  suddenly becomes his war and your victory is his victory.

Instead of women nagging the men, we should feed our men with honor just like we feed our orisas with offerings and worship for blessings and interventions.We should feed our men with magnitude of honor, for him to be able to stand as the pillar that holds the life of our home, and  nothing can destroy or bring down the home because he knows that he is god representative on earth.

A man can equally become destructive to himself, home, loved ones and his nation, when he is constantly dishonored or dwells in an environment that he lacks motivation.
 A man wants to be the protector of a woman his co creator. He wants the woman to recognise  him as a king in a small or big way. When he receives his praise, he is prepared to stand by his queen to support her every step of the way, he will support her to become the woman that she’s destined to be. He will place her in a place where men will respect and honor her in return.

May we learn to take care of our men, through honor,praise,reverence, respect or in any other positive manner that will put him in touch or in alignment of his true self, his true identity and the god he truly is. Lets call forth the best in the lives of our men and he will in return,open the gate to an eternal favor in his presence. Woman know that he is seeking to crown you with glory through your showers of praise and he will in return, and lead to a place that brings honor to all ASE .
