IFA WARNED US ABOUT COVID-19



Ifa as in typical ifa fashion, had already. Prophesized all that we would all soon see in this pandemic before anyone would fully experience it . As we have all come to know it as it is today, globally as the novel corona virus or covid 19 .



In june of 2019 as is usually done now for hundreds of years .Ifa is casted for all of its adherents of ifa in yorubland and around the world. These prophecies influence the energy of the world from june of 2019 to june of the flowing year of 2020 . It is always done on the first weekend of june. Because it is coupled with the new yam harvest! Which for the Yoruba people is there new year. Not in Jan 1st like the Gregorian calendar the western world follows.




Well in 2019 of june Ifa reading for the world came under Holy Odu Otura Meji, although these odu much like Otura meji speaks of many things. I will leave you with the warnings that ifa was pointing us to during this yearly world wide reading for the world. In which in ifa way was already telling us. A pandemic was on it way for the world and what to take heed of .



For if anything IFA is used to make sure we are aware what to look our for and how to avert negativities amongst many other things . Below you will see how ifa had put it . And make the connection to the pandemic that would take the world stage to be known as the novel corona virus till in and around feb of the following year form which this outra meji was cast

* Ifa has said that grown up children/adults should take good care of their parents(the elderly) . Ifa says the children are in the best position to make their parents have sound health and live long. Children should not be far from the parents to know what is going on with the parents and take the necessary actions. For the health of the parents and wellbeing’s of the whole household, children from each household need to make ebo so that misfortunes will not befall the household. The items of ebo include 3 cocks or a he-goat, a big rat, pap, palm oil, money and kola nuts. After making the ebo, an akose will be done which will be hanged at the entrance of the house. On this, Ifa says:


Iku dudu ni kosun dudu

Iku pupa ni kosun pupa

Aimookun ni kun ilepa orun dododo

A difa fun Omoseebi

Omoseebi ni somo Aro

A difa fun Omoseewo

Omoseewo ni somo Odofin

Iku ti ko ba pa Aro

Omoseebi omo Aro ni ko je

Ifa revelation to Omoseebi

Omoseebi is the child of Aro

Ifa revelation to Omoseewo

Omoseewo is the child of Odofin

The death that would have killed Aro

It was Omoseebi, the child of Aro, who repelled it

The disease that would have afflicted Odofin

It was Omoseewo, the child of Odofin, who prevented it

Death, do not enter this house

No passerby enters the crab’s house to drink water

Disease, do not enter this house

No passerby enters the crab’s house to drink water

All misfortune, do not enter this house

No passerby enters the crab’s house to drink water.



So as you can see with the very verses form many that where chanted by babalawo that day of the casting point out . To the fact that ifa in its cryptic way in which is speaks . Was already warning us about covid 19. And even though it didn’t name it because how could it . It none the less gave us warning and things to do to keep us sane and safe. This is just a small yet brief example how ifa and ifa divination is essential and curcila to humanity . And also why , finally ifa was inscribed by the governing body of unesco as a tangible heritage of humanity . When IFA speaks it would be wise to listen . Ase ifaseum : ifa bless!
