Solving Problems through Ebo (Etutu)

Posted on 09 January 2011 by Babalawo Aworeni

Ebo is the child of Orunmila.  Orunmila created Ebo to this Earth to solve the problems of human beings.  People on earth use Ebo not only to solve problems but to alleviate suffering.  After the sacrifice (etutu) is made a Babalawo will consult Ifa to ensure that it is carried to the proper place.  Ebo will then invite Esu who will then take the etutu to heaven where it will be accepted.  In this way it is not only the prayers that are answered but problems are resolved and suffering alleviated.

It is important that Ebo is prepared correctly otherwise the problem may not be solved.  If Ebo is prepared correctly and the instructions of Ifa followed there is no problem Ebo cannot solve.

There is not a certain time period for the power of Ebo to work.  In the olden days one used to hide and watch to “see” if the Ebo had been accepted.  However, now in modern times this cannot be done.  A good babalawo will know how to check after the Ebo has been set to “see” that it has been accepted without “watching.”

Ebo is working with many things in this world.  Ebo is working closely with the Iyami and Esu.  The entity that Ebo works with depends on what is prescribed by Ifa.  For example, Ifa may ask Ebo to work with Obatala or Obaluaye.

There are many different types of Ebo.  There is Ebo for Esu, for Ogun, there is Ebo for blessings, money or love.  There is also Ebo that will cause problems for an adversary. Ebo works with an individual spirit. There are positive and negative aspects to Ebo.

Ebo has its own time and it is for a practiced babalawo to divine correctly.  Some Ebo must be carried in the morning, some in the afternoon and some at midnight.  Some Ebo cannot be seen by the eyes.  Some times the same Ebo must be made periodically.

Every Ifa priest must make Ebo.  Ebo is the most important tool for a babalawo.  Any person that worships Orisa or any Irunmole must make Ebo.

Ebo is very powerful and useful for human beings.  Every Odu Ifa speaks about Ebo.  Ebo can be made for every Odu, in this way there is no problem that cannot be solved using Ebo. would like greet all Orishada readers for the Gregorian calender New Year.

    Yes, I would like to know how much it will cost to come to Nigeria for a full Ifa Ceremony. It’s my understanding that this will be followed up with serious intensive learning and pracicing to be an authentic Priest.
    My second question is, how long will the initiation and teaching take, at the initial on set of this training.

    Iboru, iboya, ibosise,
    To all those seeking to learn of Ifa, of Odu, of orisha, initiated or not, you must start with yourselves. This is a way of life! This is the way of life. It is a way of life in which our ancestors must give blessing to our undertaking for it to be carried out. Where we must praise and apease Esu so that he make keep gbogbo araye, ajogun, the forces of the left hand side, the negativity present in our lives, from standing in our way. Where we must praise orisha for their blessing and learn to live in balance with the world that they have given us. Talk to your eggun, talk to esu, and tell “them” that you need guidance. Guidance from orun and guidance here on the earth. Orisa will provide. Ase Esu
