Isedaye Omo Tuntun/The Birth of a New Baby

Posted on 03 January 2015 by Babalawo Aworeni

IMG_114992789995596

Isedaye Omo Tuntun/The Birth of a New Baby. The spirit of a child comes from Heaven. It is important to ask Ifa at every stage of a person’s life, for instance before one gets married or during the birth of a new baby. The reading for the baby occurs when a baby is born and is very important so that the parents will know the type of child they have. Some children come from heaven with a spirit that doesn’t like noise, or may have a delicate constitution, if this is the case, Ifa advises us on how to be a better parent to these types of children. The first reading of the baby is for the child’s destiny, it is a private matter, usually performed between just the parents and the priest. This is because certain taboos or perceived weakness of the child is not for everyone to hear. Sometimes it will be at the parent’s discretion as to whether or not to tell the child. When the child is older it may be prudent to tell them more about their destiny.

When Ifa tells us the child’s destiny, he may say that the child should be initiated or maybe they shouldn’t eat certain foods, or possibly there is a sickness and a sacrifice should be made. This is for the child’s future and what they are destined to become. Ifa will also tell about the name of the child. Ifa’s name for the child will help the child fulfill their destiny. During the naming ceremony it should be performed in the morning and is when the name is given. The other names of the baby other than the family name should reflect the nature of the pregnancy and the actual birth of the baby.

20140527_160407

With regards to the placenta, how it comes out with the baby has a specific meaning also if a child is breach this has a specific name. The tradition surrounding pregnancy, birth, the vital 7 days after the birth and throughout childhood is sacred and there are many rituals surrounding these stages. The rituals involve the first bath of the child, the behavior of the caregiver at birth, what is done with the materials after the first bath, what is done with the placenta, etc.

The Oro Idile, comes from the family compound, where for the first 7-8 days after the birth the mother can only eat certain foods or must exclude certain foods/spices. This too, determines the life of the child. Many times if a parent hasn’t performed the Oro Idile for the child, the child may have a problem later in life or fall sick. The parents may think at that time that someone is attacking them through their child, but that is not the case, the problem originated within the first 7-8 days after the baby was born. Oro Idile is family/compound specific.

Ifa tells us how to be good parents. When the child becomes an adult the parents will disclose the destiny according to what Ifa said to them as a baby and they will take this information into adulthood. The child will know how to conduct themselves in the world, the clothes they should wear, colors they should avoid, taboo foods, etc.

In the Yoruba tradition the people that have children have the world. It is a vital part of the Ifa religion. Every Orisa has many children. According to the source of Ifa in Ile-Ife, a man and woman are to marry and have children. Homosexual relationships are taboo. If a woman is barren this is a different matter.

In this Odu Ifa, Ogbe Osa  Ifa talks about when the people of Ilu Obirin town practiced homosexuality and Olodumare sent Orumila. Orunmila went to war in the town of Ilu Obirin to destroy the town. The town was inhabited by only women and they were brought back to Ile-Ife and taught how to properly conduct their life.

 

Oloye Oloriwarefa Owolabi  and Iyanifa Awojoke Aworeni – Greets all of the Orishada Community

Happy New Year in the Gregorian Calendar, Ifa will bless and keep us in this new year.

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.

    Edi somi , 

   Orisa gbemi lakete

  Gori Esin lo A difa fun

  Olofin otaja taju AyeE loruko aya re je

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.

 

image

General

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.

Osetura Agbara Obirin : The power of the woman

Posted on 22 March 2014 by Babalawo Aworeni

photo(4)Osetura Agbara Obirin: The power of the woman

Osetura is the odu that is called when making a sacrifice. If it isn’t called the ebo will not be effective.  The only way an ebo can be effective and be received by Olodumare is for the incantation for Osetura to be called.

The odu Osetura also speaks about the power of women.  It says that if they aren’t given honor and respect then they can anger and they have the ability to destroy the world.

If a woman wants to capture the power from a man, she can use 201 tricks that are intrinsic to all females then they can use an additional 50 tricks after which the man’s power will be theirs if they desire it.

The lives of all males are in the hand of the female.  If a husband is to succeed let us look to his wife.  The success of the family is in the hand for the woman.

We have to give females respect and honor whenever a sacrifice is made.  If any female enter during the time when the sacrifice is being made, then it is said that they the sacrifice has been accepted.  This is because Olodumare empowers women and it is good for men to give full respect for women.

This odu teaches us that we should not use our eyes to under value a woman or any person.  All the Irunmole know the power that Olodumare gave to Osun and she has great ability to fight them.  In the end they all give her great respect.

 

Akere finu sogbon

Ni oruko ti an pe ifa iran

Ija gidigidi ko kan agba

Eniti olorun ba pe ni lagba

Baba la ma pe

Adifa fun osetura ti o ma ti kere

Gba agba lowo olodunmerinlogun

This is divined for all Igba Irumole Oju Kotun and divined for Igba Irunmole Oju Kosi, when they came from the heaven to this earth.

When they got to earth and they began building their house but they refused to build a house for Osun because they thought her to be a simple female.

Osun watched carefully how the Irunmole treated her.  This was the way they began building the world.  However she knew that if they were to know peace or to succeed in the world, in the end they would have to beg her and give her the ultimate respect.

As time progressed, the earth changed for the worse and all the people that Orunmila said would survive, died and the people he said should die, survived.

Ogun is the one who produces the iron, when he want to manufacture iron, all made wasn’t any good.

Obatala is the one who make the artists, and at this time all artist he made turned out bad.

The earth turned into a place of disaster and the Irunmole went back to Olodumare.  They explained all that happened on the earth.

And Olodumare use his mirror to check the world and he saw that Osun was under the tree.  Olodumare asked the Irunmole what became of the female that he sent with them to earth was.  They answered that she was a simple and ordinary female.  Olodumare told them they have to go back to the earth and build the house for her and give her the honor and respect.

When they got back to this earth, they built a house for her and Osun refused to sleep there because they didn’t build it for her in the beginning.  Then all the Irunmole decided that they we would sleep in the same house.

Osun is a beautiful woman all of Irunmole wanted to be with her but they didn’t know how.

Orunmila has a lot knowledge and he used his knowledge to speak a secret incantation.  Nobody understood what he saying to the iroko and he put the words to Osun’s chest.  This is how he was able to have his way with her.

When Osun woke up in the morning she saw that her clothes were wet and she called all the Orisa and asked them who had sex with her nobody answered.

Osun took out the Edun Ara, pulled her power and called the incantation that said whomever had sex with her the Arira should kill that person.  Thunder entered Orunmila’s house.

Orunmila took  his Oke Ponri Re o Gbe o and made a reading.  Then he used the Sigidi, called on his power using his power, and began to recite a powerful incantation, which said that Sigidi should kill Osun.

Osun listened to the words that Orunmila spoke and she asked him if he was the one who had sex with her and he answered her in the affirmative.

Osun asked why he didn’t tell her and he asked her to please calm down, so he could explain.

The two of them reconciled, married and became husband and wife.

Nine months later Osun delivered a baby boy and they names the baby, Omo Ti Osun Tu Wa.

When the baby grew up, Orunmila asked Osun to have another baby, but she refused.  She only wanted to have one child for Orunmila.

Osun said that if any babalawo want to make any ritual or sacrifice and if they don’t called the name of my child, Osun Tu Wa or Osetura the ritual or sacrifice we not be effective.

If a babalawo wants to make the (ebo) sacrifice he has to called Osetura to the sacrifice before it can accepted by Olodumare.

This is odu lets us know the powerful of females.

Oloye Olori Iwarefa Owolabi Aworeni.

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.

Egbe Orun: Spirit Companions

Posted on 18 February 2012 by Babalawo Aworeni

The Egbe Orun are spirit companions.  Every person enjoys the company of these companions in the heavens before they come to earth.  When a person comes from heaven, there are many groups that they may be associated with.  One of these groups is called Egbe Emere, which is one of the most powerful groups.  A person’s destiny on earth is already determined before they leave the heavens.  Their spirit has already made an agreement with the powers that be.  This agreement may be for money, long life, children, etc.  This agreement depends on the individual.

In some cases a person may have a husband or wife during their time in the heavens and they may have made a promise to this significant other.  They may have promised not to take another husband or wife when they travel to earth.  Or they may have promised only to spend a day, week or month on earth.  If the agreement was broken while on earth an individual will experience many problems in their earthly life.

It is important that a person makes a sacrifice to the Egbe Emere, Didi Eru Egbe or the relevant Egbe Orun for their particular situation when they arrive to this world.  Some promise that they will do it while in heaven but when they come they get distracted and don’t perform the necessary sacrifice.

Some people have Egbe Orun in the ocean.  Some have Egbe Orun in a particular tree.  Everyone has Egbe or spirit companions that they were close to while in heaven.  In Oyeku Ogbe,

Iji aji a ko jire

Isun asun a ko sun ire

Ebo Oyekulogbe la o mon

it was divined for Orunmila when Orunmila hide his money in his room.  On the day when he returned from a journey, he found that the money was missing.  He thought that one of his Omo Awo had stolen it.  The money kept coming up missing and Orunmila discovered that it was his Egbe disrupting his life.  Afterward, he performed the necessary sacrifice, feeding them.  After doing this, the money stopped disappearing.  He then began to feed them regularly and didn’t have a problem again.

The problems that people have will manifest in different ways.  Some will lose jobs, or have problems with childbirth and other may have problems with marriage and relationships, it depends on the individual circumstance.  All these things could be a result of a broken promise with the Egbe or their displeasure in something about the person’s life on earth.  It is the Egbe that has the power to to take essential things from someone to make their life unhappy, it is usually done because of a broken agreement.

It is not everyone that is Abiku, that will die during their naming ceremony or during their wedding, but for some it is the case.  The Egbe Orun take them because it is their original agreement.

In Oshe Omolu (Oshe Ogunda)

Oshe Omolu

Osi ko mo awo

Agada ko mo ori

Eni o da oru

divined for Omo Asode, Omo Aroko and Omo Asawo, these three children came from the same heaven.  They made the promise before going to earth, that they would return to heaven after spending only seven (7) days on earth.  The three mothers of these children went to get a reading from the same babalawo.  Only one mother made the appropriate sacrifice.  They were told not to have a big naming ceremony or party at the birth, only they should give the child their name.  The other two mothers used the money for the sacrifice to have a large ceremony.  During the naming ceremony the Egbe Orun called the children home.  When they got to Omo Asawo he was able to send them away because of the sacrifice that his mother made.

It is the destiny of some people to be very powerful on earth.  It is through the Egbe that the positive aspects of one’s destiny will manifest.  For some people a very small seeming insignificant thing will turn into something very large and important through the Egbe.  It is important for people to always take care of their Egbe Orun.  In the case of a sick child it is especially important, because the problems with that child can likely be caused by the Egbe Orun.

World Ifa Festival 2011

Posted on 05 June 2011 by Babalawo Owolabi

 

 

The Orunmila Barami Agbonmiregun, the World Ifa Festival was held Saturday June 4-5, 2011 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.

The Ifa Divination for all Ifa practitioners worldwide is as follows:

OBARA OGUNDA; OBARA EGUNTAN – IRE GBOGBO (Ifa takes all aspects of Ire)
This is a good odu for all Ifa practitioners, Ifa has given special warnings and advice for this year. In Obara Eguntan, Ifa says that in this year all the people should use cock to feed their head. The individual should make the sacrifice so that they will be pregnant and will have good health and fortune during the pregnancy. All the women that are looking for pregnancy in this year will have it. Men should make the sacrifice for their wife in this respect. In this year the knife will not be used to deliver the baby. All babies will be delivered through natural means.
Ifa says that the boy child will be born in this year and he will bear the name Ifadeyi. We must make the sacrifice for all of our children this year so that they will not fight with their elders.
Ifa says it is taboo in this year to be greedy. A large sacrifice must be made for the house help, for those working in the home or the family that is living in the home, so that they will not create danger in the household. Ifa says we should feed the head of the home helpers and the extended family in the home.
It is not good in this year to work deceptively at someone’s back to be subversive in one’s actions. It is not good to tell lies in this year.
A large sacrifice must be made because of the Egun, so that we will have a curse on our head. An ancestor that perpetrated a terrible thing was cursed and as a result his descendants were also cursed. Because of this all Ifa practitioners must make a sacrifice to ameliorate this condition.
In this year all those who are initiated to Ifa and other Orisa will see blessings. Aje (money) must be fed because of the money that is coming in this year. The Erinlele must be feed with agbo (ram). One should not use force to collect money. Those that use force to collect money will lose their life. Be very careful about using powerful rituals for money, it will end badly in this year.  In this year we should not do things only because of money. Whether the thing is good or is false, the sole purpose in doing it should not be because of money.
In this year we must solve our grievances with one another and should not be angry. We should not fight amongst ourselves. Do not hold grudges or act passive aggressively. One should be direct and resolve differences. However, Ifa also says we should not tolerate nonsense.

Ifa says to all the Olorisa that in this year they must initiate to Ifa. In general we must be diligent in taking care of our Ifa. Take care of Ifa on every Ose Ifa and take care of our Orisa.
Ifa also says that all the babalawo, iyanifa, etc. should not be promiscuous and be careful who we have sex with. One should not take another’s wife or husband. The Oluwo should be careful about the female. What is done in private will leak out. If an Elder wants to curse, the Omo Awo should beg them to hold themselves. Beg the Elder to not be upset and not to curse.
All Ifa practitioners will see a promotion in their life this year. Ifa says that all the Omo Awo should be humble to their Oluwo. A big sacrifice should be made so that all the Awo will have good relationships. It is important that the Omo Awo make the sacrifice so that Ifa will teach them in their dreams.
Ifa says that others will not collect our blessings in this year. All the children that have left their home will come back to their parents. The blessings will come back home in this year. Our head will show us the right and prosperous path. Specifically those that are initiated to Ifa will see these blessings. If our head is good, then by this time next year we will see much prosperity. Because of the sacrifice that we are to make for our Ori this year, one should not carry heavy loads on their head in this year.
Ifa says that whatever his worshipers ask for in this year, he will do it. The Ifa devotee should sacrifice what is in their mind for Ifa this year. The Ifa devotee will live long and all disease will leave their body. All good babalawos will see good blessings in this year. All babalawo should make the sacrifice for their wife and children so that they will not see problems.
Ifa says that we should make the sacrifice to defeat all of our enemies. Ifa says that we should feed Moremi so that she will defeat all of our enemies. One should travel to the Moremi shrine in Ile-Ife to feed her. Ifa says the sacrifice should be carried to Ilamonja – Igbo Moremi. The sacrifice is 16 ogede omirin.
Ifa also gives all the Ifa practitioners the warnings to not use their mouth to curse. The Ifa devotee should not be too prideful and must show humility.
Ifa says that we should keep our homes neat and orderly. We should keep our clothes clean and well kept. One should not wear dirty clothes in this year.
16 Abe and the blood of the agbo should be used in the sacrifice for this year. The sacrifice should also be made so that those that are trying to send the babalawo out will fail in their plans. So that the hand they use to hurt the Ifa devotee will only be used to hurt themselves.
