Aboru Aboye Abosise:  I quit this group a while back and now I am back,  and I notice a note from you from four years ago.  I apologize for taking so long to get back with you.  To answer your question, I am not initiated into Ifa, but I do superb Ifa divinations.  It is not impossible me to do Ifa divinations because in fact I do them many times daily.  And I achieve 100 percent accuracy with this oracle 100 percent of the time. 

I do not wish to get into an argument with you or anyone else about this.  If you want to believe that I am hallucinating or something and that I am not actually performing Ifa divinations, that is okay with me.  No arguments, please.

Aboru Aboye Abosise,

I apologize for the abscence as I have activities that ask for the majority of my time. I would like to address dreamwalker, you mention you are not a Babalawo so are you Awo of Ifa? Are you initiated into Ifa?

I will say that its impossible for you to divine Ifa if you are not a Awo of Ifa, initiated into its secrets. Ifa is not like tarot cards and a skilled diviner is a serious practice when it relates to Ifa. The Odu are energies only a Babalawo have access to.

One cannot say they are divining with Ifa and prescribe Ebo or help if they have never received formal training from a skilled Babalawo. In Ifa divinations one can be dealing with serious energies where if one is not fully aware of what they are doing it can lead to disbelief or harm to others.

The Ifa oracle is known to many in Cuba, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Trinidad, etc. I have been training for some years now and Ifa is what I practice as an initiated priest of Ifa in Nigeria and taught by my elders in Nigeria. I try to travel as much as possible to Nigeria for training and for the sake of other people interested in learning and initiating into Ifa.

If you are a diviner Dreamwalker, and you are not initiated into Ifa, you cannot be a diviner of Ifa. Throwing Opele or divining with Ikin without knowledge and without passing through the sacred Igbodu would sadly be a strong misunderstanding on your part and the way this religion has been practiced by our forefathers and how it was left by Orunmila.

I appreciate your love for Ifa but if you respect Ifa and you are not initiated then it is best you leave Ifa to practicing Babalawo. If you are Awo then I pray you understand things clearly and Esu does not cloud your mind.

Ifa a gbe wa ooo

The group administrator has not posted anything here for ten months, making this seem to be a dead group.

I will take the liberty, therefore, of inviting everyone to check out and join my new PaganSpace group: Ifa Readings. Even though the Ifa oracle is known to only a few people outside of West Africa, it is the most advanced and informative oracle in the world. In my Ifa Readings group, I do free Ifa readings for anyone who has a question.

I am not a babalawo and so I am not an expert on the Ifa religion, but I am a diviner. You will be impressed with these Ifa divinations. I guarantee.

Otasha, you did not tell me about this site.

I have been studying Santeria and Ifa for quite awhile. I am caucasian and haven't heard of any white people practicing Ifa and Santeria. I feel a connection to the orishas though. The drumming and the dancing, the opening of my mind when I'm smoking a cigar for Esu, the power I feel when I'm standing there with my eyes closed as I say good morning to God and the orishas. So, if anyone has any answers, I'd appreciate it.
Thank you.

Hi I'm Auspex from Brasil. Here the Orisha cult is very strong in the Candomblé and Umbanda religions. I"ve been reading Tarot about 20 years but I study the Erindinlogun Oracle system too. Blessed be! Axé!

In looking for info on a path of Elegba called Olo ona. All I know about that path is that he is the (owner of the roads). Any info would be helpful. Thanks...
