World Ifa Festival 2014

Posted on 07 June 2014 by Babalawo Aworeni


The Orunmila Barami Agbonmiregun, the World Ifa Festival was held Saturday June 7-8, 2014 at Oketase the  Ile Ifa Agbaye (World Ifa Temple), Ile-Ife. This festival celebrates the New Year for all the traditional Yoruba practitioners.


This year’s World Ifa festival was attended by thousands of people from all over the world. The rituals began in the early morning and will continue into the following day.


The odu Ifa for this year is Edi Ogbe  (Edi Gbemi ) – Ayewo Arun (Negative with emphasis on disease)

1) Edi gbemi ,

   Edi somi

   Orisa gbemi lakete

  Gori Esin lo A difa fun

  Aresa Ajeje won ni kan fi gbale oye

Won ko rubo emi gigun.

Ifa is telling us in this year that we we will see a lot of blessing from this year into next year.  Ifa says that some are planning bad in the new year but they will not succeed.  The bad the was planned for someone will be a source of blessing.

Ifa says that we should look for the promotion, we must look for the peaceful road.  There is something that will call us, it should not be rejected, it will be a blessing.

2) Edi gbemi

    Edi somi  Orisa gbemi lakete

    Gori Esin lo A difa fun

Aludugbe to lo so oko Arugbo

Ebo won ki oru Orubo O seun

Ifa says that this year will be filled with success for Ifa practitioners.  We should always dress well in this new year and practice good hygiene.

Ifa talks about meeting an older woman that we should not betray.  We should not betray anybody in this year.  The blessing or gift that you didn’t expect will come in this year from a stranger or someone that you don’t know.

3) Edi gbemi  

    Edi somi , 

   Orisa gbemi lakete

  Gori Esin lo A difa fun

  Olofin otaja taju AyeE loruko aya re je

Ifa says we should be careful of females, do not investigate the practice of women so that our eyes will not go blind.  A husband should not follow or lie to his wife, he should also not stay away from home for too long.  The woman that is looking for a child in this year will find it.

Ifa says that when people have problems in this year they should go to Ifa and explain.  We need to put our faith in Ifa this year.

Ifa says we should not betray each other, husband should not betray his wife, omo awo should not betray oluwo, child should not betray the parent, etc.

Our Ifa shrines must be neat in this year.  We must make a sacrifice for the victory.  When success comes our way in this year we must make the sacrifice because those around us will be jealous.  We must make the sacrifice that our enemies cannot steal our blessings.  Do not follow the stranger.  We need to feed Osun in this Odu, she will assist the female when she needs to escape danger.

4) Edi gbegberetigbe

   A difun Sango awili awala

  Omo arigba ota segun

 Won ko rubo ki owo le je ti e

Orubo o seun

Ifa says that we should make the sacrifice so that people will get the honor.  We should feed Sango under this Odu.  200 stones should be added to this sacrifice.  This is so respect will be given and we will have what we wish .

There is a lot of disease that will come out in this year.  we must make the sacrifice so that we will not have disease.




We need to be careful about underestimating any person.  We also should use plantain to feed Ifa.  Ifa says that if you have 2 wives or work with multiple people don’t gossip about the word one person says to you.  Don’t repeat what they say and use the information to get a reaction, this will end badly.

Ifa says that if you are in one position, you should not leave that position to seek something better.  You should stay where you are.

Ifa says that we should not say bad things about our work.  We should not say negative or strong words to children.  Let the words that come from your mouth be positive and good.  Always keep your house neat.  Blessing will enter a neat and clean house.

Ifa says that we should feed Ogun, Obatala, Ifa and Sango.
