Weekly Ifascope

The process of divination is to open the channels of communication between the meta-intellect of the Universe and ourselves. The skilled Diviner will utilize his or her experiential connection to this energy to tap into that ocean of knowledge for those that they are divining for. To be most effective, the energy should be a three way triangulation...Ifa priest, Client and Orunmila (meta-intellect). The Ifascope that the Foundation has presented each week for more than a decade, is a broader scope connection. The Ifascope is designed for a general understanding of the effective energy necessary for those that share our World View to most successfully navigate the path towards their fulfilling their Destiny. It is both accurate and effective - it will smooth the bumps and improve your life, but it is not meant to replace one on one divination. When serious issues of a career, love, health, children etc. must be dealt with, ONLY a one on one divination with a skilled Diviner can guarantee the right answers and solutions. At the Ifa Foundation, Oluwo Philip Neimark and Iyanifa Vassa are available for personal divinations via phone, e-mail, or in person at our various workshops.

Each week I divine for the most probable path that will lead us towards our Destiny. These paths reflect certain energies that are indicated for us to successfully traverse the two sides of our energy matrix. While each energy applies specifically to either the temporal or spiritual/emotional components, do NOT make the mistake of thinking they are not interrelated.  Ifa, unlike the Western world view, never examines any situation without understanding and integration with the whole of our lives.

 This week's Ifascope Reading is brought to you by our long time friend Javier Lujan {Ifajuitan}, an Osun priest, babalawo since 1998, oluwo since 2017.

Notice: The weekly Ifascope is usually posted weekly between Thursday and Friday evening.

Reading for week of October 21st - 27th, 2017

The most important relationship is with YOURSELF!

We often take for granted the importance of having a good relationship with yourself. Stop beating yourself up over mistakes and things you have little control over. You are doing the best you can with what you have and mistakes are part of life, this is how we grow and develop our character. So, work on having more positive thoughts; don’t worry or get angry, instead try to be supportive and encouraging; always acknowledge your true feelings and desires, don’t ignore them; and forgive yourself when you mess up.

This week’s Odu is “Otura Idi”, an empowering Odu that tells the story of the child succeeding the father. This is the type of energy that empowers you to find your inner strength to become more independent. Best of all, it comes On Path (“Owani Iwori”) for your Destiny (“Idi Ose”). Not surprising, it is your Ori (“Iroso Otura”) at work here. But to get the most benefit out of this energy, you’ll need to work on the type of relationship you have with yourself.

The Ebbo (“offering”) to your Ori is “Coconut Shavings” (“Iwori Owani”), representing pure thoughts.

Light a white tea candle and place a clear glass of water.  The Ori is at the crown of your head, take the coconut shavings into your hands; say a prayer asking your Ori (higher self) to help you advance your destiny and for you to have more clarity and pure thoughts; then place the coconut shavings on top of your head; you can then cover your head with a light-colored hat or scarf; leave it on as you go about your day.

Love and Blessings!  Javier Lujan {Oluwo Ifajuitan}

The world is forever changing, if we don’t change with it, we’ll get left behind.  Nothing sinister about that, it’s just the reality. The challenge of learning to adapt has always been with us since the dawn of time. Adaptation goes beyond survival, it allows us to thrive, so don’t resist change, embrace it. This week you’ll find yourself dealing with =unexpected changes which will make you feel uneasy and unsure of yourself. Itreally should be an auspicious time but we don’t see it that way because we’re too worry about what’s happening around us.
