The odu Ifa for this year is Eturupon Irosun (Eturupon sokun, Eturupon sode) – IRE GBOGBO

1) Eturupon sokun , eturupon sode, eturupon mogelemogele adifa fun agba agba ife kiribitti ni ojo ogun aro ka aaye de won ki won rubo won rubo won seun

Ifa is telling us in this year that we need to make the sacrifice so that we will not see war.  There is much trouble coming to the world in this year and the Ifa practitioner is well advised and has the tools available to handle the upcoming turmoil.

2) Eturupon sokun , eturupon sode, eturupon mogelemogele adifa fun Ejire to bo sode isa laye

There will many ibeji (twins) in this year and there will be pregnancies for the women that have been barren.

If a spouse is a twin then the other should take very good care of that spouse in this year.  Husband and wife need to care for each other and help themselves in times of prosperity and  hardship.

General

One should also not ask for money in this year, and be forgiving of those that owe things to you, in this way we will also see blessing in this year.  A sacrifice should be made to Esu to ensure that things that are owed to you will come.

We should use akara to feed our head.  Ifa says we should feed our head to receive the blessing in this year.  One needs to use their head to avoid trouble.

Also, under this odu, one should feed Osun because of the blessing.  There is the possibility for the Ifa practitioner to become wealthy in this year through the blessing of Osun.  One needs to be careful about arguments in this year, we should not engage in fighting.

There is a lot of blessings in this year.  Feed your Orisha at home to see the Ire Gbogbo.  Make the necessary sacrifices and follow the warnings of Ifa.

World Ifa Festival 2012

Posted on 02 June 2012 by Babalawo Aworeni

The Orunmila Barami Agbonmiregun, the World Ifa Festival was held Saturday June 2-3, 2012 at Oketase the 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 many from within Nigeria as well as from all over the world. The rituals began in the early morning and continued into the following day.

This year’s odu is Ogbe Iyonu/ Ogbe Ogunda, IRE AJE.

In this year Ifa is telling devotees to be patient (suuru).  Money will come to those that make the proper sacrifice in the new year but one must be careful of some embarassment that may be associated with this good fortune.

Ifa devotees must take care of their destiny in this New Year.  One must feed their head for it is the head that will bless you in this New Year.  There may be fighting, a practitioner of Ifa should not fight.

A lot of children will be born this year.  There will be many dada children born.  These children will bring a very special blessing with them.  It is important to feed Agbonmiregun in the New Year so that the blessings of this odu will manifest.  It is also important to feed Ogun and the head.

People who do not have wives will find a wife in this year.  Ifa devotees will see the blessings of Ifa in this year.

Ifa also says that if an insult comes out one should not be quick to anger.  Use the hand to rub the stomach to keep calm and don’t be quick to be upset.  Be careful of friends, they will have the tendency to give bad advice.

Ifa devotees should not drink in excess in this year.  Be careful of the words that fall from your mouth, do not curse.  Keep a cool head in this year.  Take good care of Orunmila.

Married couples will see problems in their relationships, they should persevere. They should not give up the relationship.  Ifa tells us that we should not lie in this New Year.  To see the truth in other’s lies a sacrifice should be made.

All Ifa devotees should take good care of their children.  The children will bring great blessings.  There will be many children and many apetebi in this New Year.

Ifa say we have to make a sacrifice to the Esu and you have to be careful about the food that you are eat or drink in out side and don’t stay later in the city because some people they are plan bad thing for people .

Ifa says we should make a sacrifice that we will keep our property.

That we will live long some people we should be very careful about people  .

Ifa say we have to be patience and we  don’t let people where we are going keep our secret in our mind don’t trust anybody ok .
Ifa say fighting is come and we have to be careful about the word that is come out from our mouth.

Featured Priest Chief Ifawole: The Iyaami

Posted on 03 October 2009 by Babalawo Aworeni

Egun

Igun

The Iyaami are the women that guide Olodumare. They go by the name Aje or Iyaami .
The three Iyaami that primarily guide Olodumare are called
Ayere Eiye
Ayere Eiye
Oyeye Eiye Ti Se Oniko Eleiye.
These three Iyaami not only guide Olodumare, but they empower the Aje on the earth.
They are the ones that originally sent the Aje to the World .
The three Iyaami have supreme power over Aje on earth and they are the ones who initiated and spread Aje throughout the World .
The Aje on earth fall into two categories, Oso, which are male Aje and the Eleiye which are female Aje.
Esu has ability to enter among both Oso and Eleiye. No one can choose to initiate Aje/Iyaami, they choose who they want to initiate and “call” that person.
No one can say they have initiated to Iyaami or say they can initiate you. No one can have or give a shrine to the Iyaami or Aje.
If someone claims to have an Iyaami shrine, can give a shrine, to have been initiated to Iyaami or wants to initiate you, they are speaking falsely.
It is impossible to truthfully make these claims.
There is no specific shrine to Aje.
To feed the Aje one must either feed them through Esu, Orita meta (3 road junction) or the Iroko tree.
No one knows the actual Aje shrine, however according to Elders and what Ifa says, we know that the name of their house is called Ota and the name of their shrine is called Idi.
No one knows the actual place of the Idi and if they do they can NEVER say..
The general belief of the Yoruba people is that the Aje are wicked and they must always be respected and feared.
The Yoruba hold this belief about the Aje because the Aje are known to torture, kill, and punish harshly anyone that disrespects or crosses them. Also many ill-gotten gains are obtained with the help of the Aje.
To see the good face of the Aje one must make proper sacrifice.
There are three types of earthly Aje: Dudu, Funfun, and Pupa.
The Aje Dudu do not directly kill people, however they torture people to the point of death. They deprive people from getting their destined success.
The Aje Pupa, also known as Oso, kill people directly. They use knives and have been known to slaughter many people.
The Aje Funfun give blessings, knowledge and they do not destroy. However, if a person is rude to them, they will deal with them harshly and punish severely.
The Aje Funfun tend to provide messages of knowledge and blessings to those that they help. They are mosly good but can be wicked if provoked.102_2261 Chief Ifawole Idowu Awominure: Chief Ifawole was born and raised in Ile- Ife and comes from the Agesinyowa compound. He was born into a family of highly respected babalawos. Chief Ifawole specializes in Ifa and is active in the Obatala community. He has many omo Awo at home and abroad and has initiated many Ifa devotees. He holds the title Lisa, second to the Oluwa in the Ogboni Fraternity.
Ifa koni je ki a ri ija Eleiye ase o.
