I understand what you are saying about my doing Ifa divinations. It is fine with me if you do not want to call the divinations I do Ifa divinations. I do not want to argue with anyone about this. I just want to do helpful divinations for people, and I do just that.
Within the religion of Ifa, I understand that only Babalawos can perform Ifa divinations, and I am not a Babalawo. Nor am I a member of the Ifa religion, although it interests me greatly. And I have read quite a bit about it.
Nevertheless, oracles are the language of the universe, and the universe has no problems transmitting flawless divinations through the Ifa oracle, regardless of one's affiliation with the Ifa religion. The universe imposes no rules or regulations or taboos having to do with the use of oracles. And neither do I.
For example, if Roman Catholics had an oracle they used, and they said only priests could use it, I would not honor that restriction. I would explore it and make use of it all I wanted to if I thought it had good potential as a oracle.
I think the Ifa oracle is a truly wonderful oracle, and I am an experienced diviner, and I am going to continue to use this rendering of the Ifa oracle that I created.
If you personally do not want to think of my divinations as being Ifa divinations, I have no problems with that.
Im sorry that I havent responded for months. My mother just passed away in May and its taken my some time to get back to where I want to talk to others. I spent some time with my Iya and she and the Orisha have helped me through this.
