INTRODUCTION
The information you are about to receive from this reading of your Odu, which
was revealed during Itenifa ( Ifa initiation) is the workings of the dynamic forces
within you, which were formed by your emanation and at the point of your
existence on this terrestrial plane. Also it bothers on the cosmic forces that are
spiritual and beyond your control.
The dynamic forces are your potentials, natural qualities and strength of your
character to be controlled in order to strengthen your public image and boost
your popularity. Whereas the cosmic forces or components are from Ayanmo,
Akunleyan and Akunlegba. These three components are loosely described as
Destiny or Heavenly gift/virtues.
The Ayanmo is interplay to forces, which are usually divine, and in consonant
with the inventive precepts of Olodumare (The Almighty God of creation).
Ayanmo of your life cannot be changed. Once you are created with it, it remains
so till the expiration of your life on this planet earth. Ayanmo includes sex of an
individual, race, family, parent, growth, and other natural rules of which an
individual must tow and obey.
Akunleyan are the virtues and values chosen in heaven consequent upon your
actions/activities in your previous evolution or existence. They are actually things
chosen by you and most of the time form your likes and dislikes or taboo.
Akunlegba are the gifts or virtues added by various Irunmole at the presence of
Onibode (celestial sentinel) in heaven or just before you emanate into the world.
They are like spices, additives, preservatives, and vehicles of propagation of
Ayanmo and Akunleyan or things that complement the Akunleyan in order to fulfil
your destiny on earth.
The reading of your Odu helps to determine or reveal your talent limitations,
assets, shortcomings, possibilities and probabilities. You should use the
appropriate ebo (sacrifice) which has same polarity and magnetism to your Odu

in order to discover love, fortune health, hope, happiness, fulfilment in life and
longevity.
You should also avoid such things, which may hinder your talents, or discoveries
by observing your taboos as explained to you during your Itenifa (Ifa initiation)

Pre-initiation Divination (dwgbd)


Pre-initiation divination (Adawogbodu) is usually done before a would-be initiate
enters the Ifa grove. The essence of this divination is to reveal the present
situation of things about the person. It states further and justifies the need or
necessity for the initiation. Sometimes, a clue or hint is revealed about any
unforeseen problems that may arise in the course/process of initiation.
Sometimes too it gives a guide or direction to be followed or observed during the
initiation.
The appropriate ebo (sacrifice) is done immediately, so that a hitch free initiation
is achieved, and to correct or amend any sad or ugly occurrences that might
have beset the would-be initiate.

Post Initiation Divination (ta)


Ita, in simple translation means the post initiation divination usually done on the
third day of Itenifa (Ifa Initiation). The significance of Ita is to reveal the situation
of things surrounding the initiate which may likely happen in the near future. It
acts as a support to the Odu revealed at initiation. Through this divination, a
babalawo is told by Ifa if all the rituals and rites of initiation had been divinely
endorsed by the Irunmole and ultimately by God.
Ita, also re-emphasises and re-validates certain messages that are sacrosanct in
the main Odu reveal at initation.
Sacrifices (ebo) are made immediately in order to engender good tidings and
possibly prevent any unhealthy occurrence that may arise in the near future.

her, but this betrayal will pay off in the end. You however

her while she is still young. On this, Ifa says:

This was the message of Ifa to one leg of Iwori

Ogbe was advised to offer ebo
He complied
Ogbe and Iwori were about to commence business partnership, Ogbe
then went to consult Ifa on the successful outcome of the venture. He
was told that the outcome will be successful but he should beware
that Iwori would betray him. His betrayal, according to Ifa would end
up in favour of Ogbe in the end. He was then advised to offer ebo
with the materials mentioned above. He complied.
They went out on the business and eventually it came out well and
they realized a lot of profit. On their way back, Iwori was pre-occupied
with the thought of diverting all the profits to himself alone. Suddenly,
he thought of eliminating Ogbe on the way. On getting to the outskirt

of the town where there was a deep trench, he pushed Ogbe into it,
hoping that Ogbe would die in the pitch. He went home alone with all
the money. When he got home, they asked him about Ogbe. He
replied that Ogbe had left for home before him.
As fate would have it, Ogbe regained consciousness with minor
bruises on his body. When he stood up, he noticed that he had fallen
on something covered with cotton wool. When he uncovered it, he
found a lot of money, clothings, beads and other treasures that were
ealier stolen and kept by some robbers. Ogbe packed them and took
them home, only to find Iwori at home. He requested for his share of
the money, got it and added it to the loot he found in the pitch. Ogbe
then became wealthy, while Iwori was full of regrets. Ogbe was
happy, dancing and full of praises to Ifa.
