Reading for the year 2013 comes from the eastern quadrant of the Opon Ifa named Otun-Opon. This is the region that governs the world of the Self, your home, immediate family and intimate surroundings.
The Otun-Opon is the “I” of the “I/Not-I” equation. This is the region of life whose symbol is the element of fire. It is further represented by the rising sun and signals the beginning. Marking the dawn or a new realm within your private world. Read the rest of this entry

When I was initiated into Ifa the only goal I had was to get to know myself better, and in so doing eliminate certain aspects of my character which constantly got me in trouble. Little did I know that through Ifa and Orisha worship, I would find an everlasting source of self empowerment.
Many come to Ifa and or Orisha worship to solve problems that have manifested in their lives. The source of these problems quite often is the client. It is true that we suffer at the hands of others without our instigation, but we tend to instigate retaliations more often than not.

That was GOD bending a universal law for you. Read the rest of this entry

If you follow me on Facebook, then you know I just returned from a five week trip to Nigeria. If you have not had the opportunity to visit Nigeria, then you need to do whatever you must in order to make this trip. It is one of those “once in a life time” experience.
This trip gave me many blessings and one of the most important one was an unexpected trip to an unassuming house where several men where waiting for my Ojugbona, a man we picked up on the way to this house, my brother Babalola Ifayemi, and me.
Here is the background…. Read the rest of this entry

Asking Ifa questions during divination is important in order for you to fully comprehend the message being given. Ifa divination is extremely important in the practice of Yoruba traditional religion. However; many clients fail to grasp the value of these questions and fail to comprehend how important it is to have active interaction with the Ifa divination session.
In this article I will talk about the role of the client asking ifa questions during divination. There are two types of questions you will need to bring to the divination session. In this article I will address the first question. In the next article, I will speake about the second type of question you should be asking Ifa during divination.
The first question is the one dealing with your issue. This is an extremely important question which you should begin thinking about even before you arrive at the Ifa divination appointment. Read the rest of this entry

In the previous article we talked about worry and fear. In this article we are going to go over eight ways we can transform worry and fear of failure.
These are formulas in which we can transform or direct negative or problematic states so that we do not manifest what we fear or worry about; instead, we can begin to redirect the problematic states creatively, remembering and using our gifts, talents and resources.
“What lies before us and what lies behind us is but a small matter compared to that which lies within us.” Read the rest of this entry

The physical level of consciousness is pictured by the Odús which form the Southern Quadrant of the Opon Ifa; which are collectively known as the Ese-Opon Odús. The Ese-Opon Odús represent an area of life which I refer to as everything that had to do with matters external or outside of your immediate home. This group of Odús represents health, finances, work, creativity and relationships.
Up to this point, the challenges that we have experienced have been internal challenges. We have explored six internal challenges of the mind (Ori-Opon Odús), three internal challenges of the heart (Osi-Opon Odus), and two internal challenges energetically or spiritually (Otun-Opon Odus).
After we have invested our time and energy exploring those eleven problematic states of consciousness internally, then those internal problematic states will begin to reveal themselves externally via the grouping of the Odús we refer to as the Ese-Opon Odús. Read the rest of this entry
