(2) improve consequently in your life.


(1)Ajoguns are the divinities or power that create challenges in our life , they are punitive knight of heavenly doom , they can use any fomular to create challenges hence not all problems are evil manipulations of men , or witches and wizard , but most problems are AJOGUNS , heavenly and unseen powers that intend to manipulate our life conforming to our past , present behaviour , thinking , actions and body languages.



(2)Adabos are odus or vibrations that takes our prayer life , and our sacrifices and rituals to the state of acceptance or the abode of GOD.



********



PLEASE REMEMBER TO PRAY EVERYTIME. 


IT IS THE SIMPLEST , LESS COSTLY , AND ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE SPIRITUAL ACTIVITIES IN THE UNIVERSE. 



IT GIVES YOU THE SENSE OF DISCIPLINE , AND PURE LOVE TO HAVE THE BEST IN THE UNIVERSE , IT IS THE FIRST AND PRIMARY STEP OF ANY SPIRITUAL AND DIVINE ACTIVITIES.



NEVER FORGET TO PRAY AND USE YOUR MIND TO PRAY SO AS TO ALWAY SPEAKS THE LANGUAGE OF OLODUMARE AND HIS NUMEROUS IRUNMOLE, YOU MUST ACCUSTOM SPEAKING THIS LANGUAGE.


REMEMBER THAT PRAYER COVERS THE PLACE YOU CAN NOT PHYSICALLY COVER , IT COVERS AND PROTECTS THOSE OF YOUR LOVE ONE YOU CANNOT SEE TOUCH OR FEEL PHYSICALLY , IT GIVES LIFE TO THE PHYSICAL BEING , AND IT RAISES THE HOPE OF THOSE YOU CAN NOT SEE , WITHOUT SPENDING MUCH , IT CHANGES THE SPIRITUAL AURA OF THOSE AROUND YOU , AND CONNECTS YOU TO THE INVISIBLE VIBRATION OF OLODU, WHO IS OLODUMARE , WORKING THROUGH HIS COUNTLESS OF IRUNMOLE , AND CHANGES AND TURNS THINGS AROUND FOR GOOD , IN ALL WAYS.



BE PREPARED TO ASSIMILATE THESE SIMPLE CONDUCTS , AND IT WILL MAKE YOU TO BECOME A BETTER OMOLUAWABI , THAT IS THE CHILDREN OF GOOD CHARACTER , WHICH IT MEANS THE CHILDREN OF DESTINY , OR BEING , AND THE REAL BEING IS GOD , OMNIPOTENT WHICH IS IN YORUBA CONCEPTION OF HIM IS OLODUMARE, THE OWNER OF VIBRATION THAT IS UNSEEN , BUT REAL , LIKE AIR.



THE PRAYER IS A REAL AND SOUND WORD POWER CALLED ORO, THAT IS WORD , USE IT. IT WILL ILLUMINATE YOU MORE AND MORE. ADAPT YOUR DAILY ACTIVITIES TO BE FILLED WITH PRAYER , LATER LEARN THE PRAYER OF EACH ODU , TO FORTIFY YOU AND YOUR STEPS , YOUR ACTIVITIES AND YOUR CHILDREN , AND NEVER WORRY WHEN YOU PRAY. 



PRAYER TAKES YOU TO THE REALM OF FAITH AND DISCIPLINE TO LEARN IFA , AND ODU , SO AS TO KNOW MORE ABOUT OLODUMARE , THAT IS THE FOUNDATION OF ALL THINGS , AND THROUGH HIM YOU ARE CHANCED TO GAIN ALL.
PRAYER WILL AWAKEN YOUR LION WITHIN , AND POWER WITHIN WILL REACTIVE YOUR NEW CHARACTER AND TRIGGER YOU TO SOAR LIKE EAGLE, AND YOU WILL SEE EVERY OPPORTUNITY COMING TOWARD YOU AS YOU ARE GOING TOWARD EACH OPPORTUNITY.



LEARN AND TEACH YOUR BODY , SOUL AND SPIRIT , BEFORE YOU BECOME A BETTER TEACHER TO OTHER , AND YOU WILL GAIN , AND GAIN BOTH THE PHYSICAL STATE OF
EXISTENCE AND THE LAND OF OUR ANCESTORS.




TAKE THE WORDS AND PONDER OVER THEM , THAT IS , TO BE BETTER AND BETTER EVERYDAY , AND ACCUMULATE MORE SPIRITUAL WISDOM THAT HAS PROFOUND DIVINE KNOWLEDGE , PHYSICAL ADVANTAGE , AND EMOTIONAL POSITIVE STATE , WITH SOUND MENTAL POWER .THIS IS THE PART OF DISCIPLINE , TO READ , WRITE , REMEMBER , INCULCATE IN YOUR DAILY ATTITUDE, ACT AS IF YOU HAVE GUARDED BY IT , AND DO IT ON DAILY BASIS.



THIS IS IFA , ATTRACTION TO WISDOM , KNOWLEDGE , UNDERSTANDING , POSITIVE ATTITUDE , THAT IS IWA, WHICH MUST BE OUR FIRST WIFE , TO BE ABLE TO LIVE WELL IN THE PHYSICAL STATE OF EXISTENCE , AND HAVE A BETTER DESTINY IN THE LAND OF ANCESTOR. WHEN YOU DO YOUR PART, THE DIVINITIES WILL NOT DO LESS, AND THE POWER OF AJOGUN WILL BE PUT INTO CHECK.




REMEMBER THAT LIFE IS A BICYCLE THAT NEEDS CONSTANT PEDDLING TO BE ON MOVEMENT. IF STOP, IT WILL FALL, THEN , OUR LIFE IS LIKE THAT. IF YOU STOP YOUR SPIRITUAL WISDOM , AND PHYSICAL DISCIPLINE , THEN , YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF ODU IS OF NO VALUE, IT IS LIKE A DOCTOR THAT LEARNS , STUDIES BUT DO NOT PRACTISE WHAT HE HAS LEARNT. 




PLEASE , BE A GOOD LEARNER , A GOOD ASSIMILATOR AND LATTER A GOOD TEACHER.



WHEN YOU ARE IN DISCIPLINE, DIVINATION BECOMES A WAY JUST AS A MERE GUARD AND GUIDELINE OF LINE TO ALWAYS BE IN CONSTANT PATH OF DIVINITIES. ASSIMILATE THIS AND USE IT IN YOUR DAILY LIFE.




DISCIPLINE MAKES YOU A GOOD DISCIPLE OF OLODUMARE , AND ENABLES YOU TO HAVE A GOOD MARRIAGE WITH IFA , ACCORDING TO A SON OF IFA , IYAWO DE ELESE IRE , IYAWO DE ELESE IRE , AWA MO ONA , ATUN TE E WO.




THAT IS , A GOOD WIFE WILL BRING GOOD FORTUNE, WE HAVE INITIATED YOU NOW , WE WANT TO KNOW YOU BETTER , THAT IS YOUR INITIATION IS OF NO USE. WHEN YOUR HABIT OR IWA , OR CONDUCT , WILL NOT ALLOW IFA TO HAVE A GOOD MARRIAGE WITH YOU. ALWAYS , THE WIFE KNOWS, THE SECRET OF HER HUSBAND. WHEN YOU ARE GOOD , YOU SHALL KNOW THE SECRET OF YOUR ORI , THAT IS , YOUR DESTINY , BE GOOD SO THAT GOOD THINGS WILL COME OUT OF YOU. A GOOD TREE PRODUCE GOOD FRUITS , MEANWHILE A DRUCKARD AND SMOKER WILL PRODUCE DRUNKING AND SMOKING FAMILY. 




HENCE YOUR CHANGES, AND OUR CHARACTER , HAS A PROFOUND MEANING TO OUR LIFE DESTINY AND OUR CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN IN THE NEAREST FUTURE. LET US HAVE A GOOD HABIT AND DISCIPLINE , SO THAT OUR CHILDREN WILL BENEFIT FROM IT.
Receiving the first hand of IFA

Receiving the first hand of IFA

Receiving the first hand of IFA



This is a ritual that is usually performed before being initiated into Ifa, even if it is not compulsory to have the Initiation: this depends on what a person choose to be or, better, on the Destiny of the person.




A future priest or priestess will receive the Ifa shrine (the first hand of IFA) by having Isefa, which means he or she is having their personal Ifa to worship until they will pass through Itefa (initiation), when Ifa will reveal them a new Odu that will be their Destiny for the rest of their life.

Receiving the hand of Orunmila means to receive the sacred palm nuts (Ikin) that represent Orunmila/Ifa and to receive a temporary Odu – sign of Destiny; it will revealed the personal Irunmole, the prohibitions (taboo),how to walk the path in order to start living a better life.

The one who is in possess of the Ifa shrine must be worshipping it every Ose Ifa (day of Ifa) with chants chosen from the personal Odu, by offering obi and orogbo, water, food, and praying.


Ifa is always guiding us and listening to our prayers and for the one who worship Ifa nothing is impossible to achieve.

Sometimes it is revealed from the divination that the person need to receive Ifa or another Irunmole shrine in order to save their life or achieve success,to have a child, to have a wife or husband, to obtain a job, to obtain spiritual power and knowledge and so on.

Ifa gbe Wa oooo.

Misconception about SANGO's Power

Misconception about SANGO's Power

Misconception about SANGO's Power


It has been believe that SANGO is only powerful during the raining period as many believe that SANGO doesn't fight except during the raining season. 




But the conception is extremely wrong. I too was among those who believe it until I was able to witness SANGO on the battle field in the spiritual world. 



Even the witches and wizards of this world fear SANGO the most, SANGO is their worst nightmare. 

We should know that the negative forces of this world are in the spiritual realm not the physical, even if there was no rain. SANGO is in a deep covenant with water. The presence of SANGO on the battle field brings rain and thunder. 

I am a living witness of this great power of SANGO olukoso the husband of OYA. 

He bring rain where ever he goes, do not forget his origin, His Father and his Mother. 

SANGO is underrated in this world, until you are faced with the battle of life, no one will win the battle for you except SANGO. 

SANGO the bringer of fire ,thunder and water. 

I salute you SANGO.

ODU OTURA OGBE

ODU OTURA OGBE

OTURA OGBE – ABOUT TOLERANCE


Ifa under this odu teaches us to ensure tolerance to attract the bundle of blessing of harmony , victory, fortune, and success in the physical state of existence, while in the spiritual realm we also be blessed with abundant success.



 We should because of intolerance become a worthless and clothless being.



We must learn to tolerate others, our wife, our husband, our family, and our friends to gain both the physical state and the spiritual state . 



The market is the physical state of existence, and those who want to live well must try to inculcate the habit of tolerance into his own life .




Those who become the leaders has the great attributes of tolerance. 



Ifa teaches us to have tolerance to build up a good family and build a good relationship either in our business life and in our daily activities. 




Those who possesses tolerance overcome losses, disgrace, destruction, dishonor, lawsuit, and untimely death.




Orunmila himself has these great attributes, that is the main reason he was labelled as the father of wisdom and knowledge, because nothing disturbs his peace of mind, and nothing causes him to anger.




Tolerance is one of the greatest sacrifice and rituals to leave well with our husband, or our partner. 



Through tolerance we cooperate and manage our wives, and through tolerance we take control of our lives.





Ifa let it be to your greatest interest, counsel and support to endow me with te spirit of tolerance so that i may live a life of a king in the physical state of existence.




Ifa let me be blessed with tolerance to overcome untimely death , sickness , loss, destruction , and other symptom of the punitive knight of heavenly doom.
Ase

TRANSLATION


Let my sacrifice be accepted
Ela let my ritual goes to the heaven above
the dog that refuses to heed the spiritual advise


become Elegbara's dog the fat ram that I warned which remained adamant and stubborn
become an Esu's ram the person who refuses to heed the spiritual counsel



should be left to his or her foolishness
he or she will suffer the consequence of his or her action and bring woos to his life and destruction to the destiny of his or her generation.



This divine Ifa oracle for Ogun the god of iron and open Ifa divination to other great divinities in the cosmos while he and other divinities were about to go to the market of tolerance they were advised that the market they intend to go



they should keep two thousand cowries, the traditional money
Ogun the god of iron
the great fighter in battle
the great chief of ejemu oluwonran
a powerful mad man
a glitteringly sharpened sword that baffles



The old man believes, no creatures either seen or unseen, either human or ghost have the capacities to disturb him on the entrance gate of heaven or earth, not to talk of the ordinary gate of the earthily market.



Ogun decided not to keep any money. On the day of the market, Ogun the god of Iron  prepared and went with other divinities to the market . 


On reaching the gate, he met a dog, who was the chief guard of the gate of the market.



The dog as a guard knew Ogun very well. He knew Ogun as the god of iron and also knew the evil side of Ogun as a creature without tolerance. 



The dog then asked Ogun the two thousand cowries money as the entrance fees of the market.



 Ogun responded that the dog should know he is not human, but divinities and he should not be disturbed by any man or other creature.



The dog advised Ogun to comply with the rules and regulation, that anyone who intend to go into the market must pay the entrance fees and that Ogun should not be furious . 



The dog advised Ogun, but the later did not heed to the advised, he Ogun had decided to force his way into the market without paying the amount. Ogun told the chief guard to quit the entrance to avoid his fury.




In the process, a fight and strife ensued. Ogun beheaded the dog, not knowing that there were more dogs in hiding to fight him immediately. After beheading, two more dogs appeared, and attacked Ogun. Ogun killed the two. 


As he was killing them, more dogs appeared, they torn the cloth of Ogun and also bite him.



Ogun killed more dogs than ever seen, but more dogs continue to find his way to meet and attack Ogun , until Ogun ran to the nearest bush to cover himself with palm frond . 



That was how Ogun covered his nudity through palm frond or palm leave from the nearest palm tree.



By the time Ogun came back with the intention of going into market to carry out his commercial activities , the market had been closed, no one was in the market. Ogun lost out in the race of physical success, and human progress because of intolerance.


Ogun the most valiant and bravest divinties forfeited the gain of the market and the reward of commercial activities. Intolerance made Ogun to lose his cloth, honor and dignity, however he was forced to be using palm frond till today , according to the popular song



What is the cloth of Ogun ? Mariwo( palm frond)


What is the cloth of Ogun ? Mariwo is the cloth, mariwo is indeed the cloth.
Ogun become a clothless divinity because of intolerance

ORUNMILA SAID
THE IMPRINTING OF THE MESSAGE IS IMPORTANT
IFA DISCIPLES REPLIED

THE IMPRINTING IS INDEED IMPORTANT LORD SAVIOR
ORUNMILA ASKED , WHICH ONE OF YOU CAN READ THE MESSAGE CORRECTLY
THE IFA RAT FAMILY SAID


WE KNOW THE CORRECT READING OF THE MESSAGE
WHEN THE MESSAGE INDICATES BY ONE NUTS WE MARK ONE
WHEN IT INDICATES BY TWO NUTS WE MARK TWO
THE LORD SAVIOUR SAID


THIS IS WRONG , IT IS MISLEADING AND DISHONEST
HENCE THE IFA RAT FAMILY WAS WIPED OUT
LIKEWISE THE IFA FISH FAMILY , SAID
WE KNOW THE CORRECT READING OF THE MESSAGE

WE CAN READ THE MESSAGE CORRECTLY
ORUNMILA ASKED THEN, HOW DO YOU READ THE MESSAGE


WHEN IT SHOWS BY TWO NUTS , WE MARK TWO
WHEN IT SHOWS BY ONE NUT WE MARK ONE
THE IFA FISH FAMILY WERE ALSO ELIMINATED
SO ALSO THE FAMILY OF THE BIRD AND THE ANIMAL


THEY SAID THEY KNOW HOW TO READ THE MESSAGE OF THE SPIRITUAL NUTS
AND THE LORD SAVIOUR ASKED THEM
THEIR REPLY WAS MORE ANNOYING
AND THEY WERE ELIMINATED LIKE OTHER IFA FAMILY WHO FAILED TO LEARN THE TRUE MEANING OF IFA READINGS


IN THE END IFA ELEPHANT SCHOOL SAID THEY KNOW HOW TO READ THE NUTS
AND ORUNMILA ASKED THEM , AND THEIR REPLY WAS AS GOOD AS IFA ORUNMILA READINGS


THEY REPLY
WHEN THE NUTS REMAIN TWO WE MARK ONE
AND WHEN THE NUT REMAINS ONE WE MARK TWO
ORUNMILA WAS EXTREMELY HAPPY AND FULL OF JOY
WELL DONE AND WELL SAID
YOU GOT THE MESSAGE AND READING HABIT CORRECTLY


ORUNMILA SAID THE OTHER FAMILY ARE LAZY , IGNORANT AND LACK WISDOM
TO SUPPORT THE ABOVE IFA VERSES
ODI MEJI SPEAKS OF THE PUNITIVE KNIGHT OF DOOM , ( AJOGUN ORUN) VISITING THE EARTHLY PLAIN ON THE ORDER OF OLODUMARE , THE INFINITE , TO DEAL RUTHLESSLY WITH EVIL DOERS AND THOSE WHO USE IFA DIVINATION TO DECEIVE MANKIND.


THE STORY AVERRED THAT THE PUNITIVE KNIGHTS ASSUMED HUMAN FORM AND CAME TO THE EARTH. ON GETTING TO THE EARTH PLAIN , THEY MET THE FIRST DIVINER KNOW AS AFINJU BABALAWO , IFA LA TI DA IFA FUN OBA ALARA( THE CHIEF DIVINER TO THE KING OF ALARA)


THE PUNITIVE KNIGHT GREETED HIM WITH RESPECT AND DEMANDED HIM TO DIVINE FOR THEM


AND ASKED HIM HOW DID HE MARK THE NUTS
HE REPLIED
WHEN THE TWO NUTS REMAINS , I MARK TWO,
AND WHEN ONE NUTS REMAIN , I MARK ONE
THAT WAS THE WAY , HE PRACTISED HIS OWN IFA READING , AND IFA DIVINATION
YOU ARE THOSE FAKE AND DISHONEST IFA PRIEST ON EARTH PLAIN AND YOU WOULD NOT BE SPARED



HENCE THE PUNITIVE KNIGHT KILLED HIM RIGHT THERE AND CUT OFF HIS HEAD AND PUT THE HEAD INTO THEIR BAG OF IFA


THE PUNITIVE KNIGHTS OF DOOM ,QUICKLY MOVED FROM ALARA TO IJERO , WHERE THEY MET ,ALAIMOKAN ARA IJERO, ( THAT IS THE INEXPERIENCED NATIVE OF IJERO)


AND ASKED HIM , WHAT IS YOUR METHOD OF READING IKINS OR DIVINATION METHOD
HE REPLIED , WHEN TWO PALM NUTS REMAIN , I MARK TWO , WHEN ONE REMAINS I MARK ONE


WHEN MORE THAN ONE OR TWO REMAINS OR IF ONE FALLS TO THE GROUND , I DO NOT BEGIN CASTING AGAIN I JUST MARK AS THE DIVINATION GOES


THE PUNITIVE KNIGHTS OF THE DOOM ANSWERED HIM , IS IT THE WAY YOU DO YOUR OWN CASTING ,
THE ALAIMOKAN ARA IJERO ( THE INEXPERIENCED DIVINER FROM IJERO) ANSWERED , YES



THEY DID NOT WASTE TIME , THEY KILLED HIM AND CUT OFF HIS HEAD AND PUT IT INTO THEIR BAG
THE SAME THINGS HAPPEN TO THE EXPERIENCE DIVINER OF ILA ORANGUN
HIS EXPLANATION WAS FULL OF FALLACIES , AND ERROR ,


HIS HEAD WAS CUT OFF LIKE THE OTHERS AND KEPT INSIDE A BAG. THAT WAS HOW THE PUNITIVE NIGHT OF THE DOOM MOVED FROM CITY TO CITY , IN SEARCH OF UNFAITHFUL , DISHONEST AND UNTRAINED DIVINERS , THAT MAKE THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH SUFFERED BECAUSE OF FALSE DIVINATION AND FAKE CASTING .



INDEED, THOSE THAT WERE LEFT IN THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH WERE GRIPPED WITH FEAR , SEEKING AND LOOKING FOR AVENUE TO LEARN IFA AND TO SEEK THE WISDOM OF GOD.


THERE WERE THREE DIVINER IN A CITY OF IFE , WHO QUICKLY CONSULTED IFA FROM AN EXPERIENCE AND WISE IFA PRIEST. THE VENERABLE IFA PRIEST ADVISED THEM TO MAKE SACRIFICE FOR THEIR SURVIVAL AND THEY SHOULD ALWAYS SEEK THE TRUTH AND LEARN THE ART OF IFA PHILOSOPHY
WITHOUT DELAY , THE PUNITIVE KNIGHTS VISITED THEM AS USUAL , THEN THE PUNITIVE KNIGHTS ASKED THEM ,WHAT METHOD DID YOU USE IN YOUR IFA READING,


THE THREE DIVINERS REPLIED , PUNITIVE KNIGHT AS THEY WERE TAUGHT BY EXPERIENCED DIVINER FROM THE CITY OF IFE


WHEN TWO PALM NUTS REMAIN WE MARK ONE AND WHEN THE ONE NUTS REMAINS WE MARK TWO
IF MORE THAN TWO REMAINS WE DISREGARD THE CAST ,


IF ONE OR TWO NUTS FALL TO THE GROUND , WE PUT SPIRITUAL POWDER SPREAD ON IFA TRAY (IYEREOSUN OSUN )ON IT BEFORE TAKING , AND CONTINUE THE CASTING


THAT IS OUR METHOD, THE PUNITIVE KNIGHTS WERE SATISFIED WITH THE EXPLANATION AND THEY WERE BLESSED
SAYING , THOSE WHO LEARN , STICK AND PERFORM CORRECT DIVINATION ARE THE TRUE DISCIPLES OF IFA AND WORSHIPPER OF OLODUMARE , THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD AND THE SAGE OF HEAVEN, HENCE LONG LIFE , PROSPERITY , SUCCESS , WEALTH ,STRENGTH AND PEACE OF MIND WILL BE YOUR LOT
HENCE ANY IFA PRIEST ACTING CONTRARY TO THIS FORM OF DIVINATION IS NOT A TRUE IFA FOLLOWERS , BUT A FAKE SPIRITUAL TEACHER AND DESTROYER OF FAITH.



THE WHOLE STORY IS TELLING US, THAT TO SUCCEED , WE MUST DO THINGS IN A RIGHT WAY. SO THAT WE MIGHT NOT BE PUNISHED OR DESTROYED. NO IGNORANCE IN SPIRITUAL PATH , IF YOU DO NOT KNOW , SEEK PROPER CHANNEL TO ACQUIRE WISDOM , AND SEEK PROPER WAY TO SEEK UNDERSTANDING AND ENLIGHTEMENT, YOU SHALL COUNT BLESSED

OBARA MEJI (part b)

OBARA MEJI (part b)

OBARA MEJI (7)



Ifa says obara meji is the beginning of the power of witches and development of the vibration of wizard and other contrary energies in the universe. Ifa speaks of the origin of man as the basis of Obara meji. 



Obara meji speaks of the beginning of light, goodness, smartness, intelligence, docile and inoffensive life. 



With the passing of the time, the evil intention of man become real and clear in the universe, hence man appears to always be in constant fear, anger, hatred, confusion, rejection, and darkness. 




It is when man is conscious of his divine state and his spiritual capacities that man would overcome all these ajoguns (hatred, confusions, loss, ill health and other negative vibration). 



Obara meji states that most men express good intention in the beginning of life, personal relationship with others and contact along their earthly journey.




 Later he changes to become the lion that roars, intend to devour the flesh of others, he is filled with evil thinking that his whole life becomes radiated with sorrow, rejection, sadness and failure.




While obara meji speaks of unrecognised enemies and strong adversaries, hence, life is at the mercy of divinity and the support of OLODUMARE which according to Ifa verse is



Eegun gogoro

Translation:


The graceful dance of the tall masquerade
Divine ifa for Orunmila Baba Agboniregun
Ifa says, he will reveal his enemies through 

ifa oracular form
Your concealed enemies who are masquerade as friends


First is the cobra in the field
I know him, I know his enmity now
And will propitiate him


Next is the tall one of the forest, whose real name is wickedness
I know him, I know his enmity now
And will propitiate him


Next is the pythom of the marshland
I know him, I know his enmity now
And will propitiate him
Next is the short one of the plains whose real name is jealousy


I know him now
And will propitiate him

ODI MEJI or IDI MEJI or EDI MEJI (4)



According to yoruba mythology, ODI MEJI, represents the fourth angle in the physical plain of existence. 



Four in IFA mythology is a spiritual sign and divine code of existence. 



The traditions says that IWALAASA or IWASE or AJULE- ORUN  is the real existence or the spiritual or divine realm and ISALU AYE or AYE AKAMARA is the physical plain occupied by ENIYAN ABIDI YAN YAN,( the mysterious beings , that fail to know themselves and others, as well, nobody  can predict their intention but only with spiritual means). 




Then ATIWAYE OJO, that is the sunrise and ATIWO ORUN the sunset denote the west and the east of the aye akamara. Indeed using sun as elemental representation of mysterious existence reinforced the importance of the sun in the physical , spiritual , and divine realm of existence.




Like Yoruba says, AIFALA OJO, TO JO BA LA MALA NI , MEANING , AS LONG AS THERE IS AN APPEARANCE OF THE SUN , I SHALL PROSPER OR SUCCEED , OR EXPERIENCE BREAKTHROUGH. 




It is a statement, a wise man must speak to himself daily, every human being is a mysterious being having mysterious capacities of the sun, and it shows the immortality of the soul and the eternity of the human spirit as compared to the sun. 




Babalawo must dwell in prayer or positive utterrance constantly, so that it will have dominion over his environment, his duties, his spiritual functions as GOD and Divine representative in the physical plain.




Ifa stanza says
Ifa ko je bo naa o fin ,
Ela ko je ebo naa de ode orun gbure gbure
Ojo nla ta di sasa




A difa fun won ni kunrin
A bu fun won ni birin
Nijo ti won sukun ailomo
Idi ni a apa asa
Igba idi ba di meji


Nla dolomo


Orunmila bara agboniregun
Jeki dolomo , dalayo , dolowo, dalaso , dolorire



Translation


Make our sacrifice be accepted
Make my rituals go to the highest spiritual level



Success depends on perserverance,
See how rain drop  in time
Wear our most valuable material



Thus declared ifa diviation to the male ( the husband)
And declared ifa to the female( the wife)
When they dwell daily crying all over for lack of children


Ifa says always start your effort or investment from a humble foundation or humble beginning


For when the two end meets , that is the meeting point of the two bottom
Signify the birth of life , which means a child is born


Orunmila Bara Agbonniregun,
Save my life from bareness , save my partner from bareness


Let my life witness the blessing of a child ,  blessing of happiness , wealth , properties, prosperity
