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.

Reading for week of March 17th - 23rd, 2018


When you have clarity of intention, the universe conspires with you to make it happen” Fabienne Fredrickson

In the beginning, there was “Eji-Ogbe” (or Ogbe Meji), the most senior Odu, what we often call the “Big Bang”, where everything started. That is this week’s ruling Odu, a powerful Odu that promises big opportunities if we have the clarity of intention. This is important, because if you don’t know what you want out of life, how can you manifest it? So, this week, you really need to ask yourself, what do you want out of life? and I’m not talking about immediate gratification, you need to think long-term. Where do you see yourself in 1 year, in 5 years, in 10 years? If you can’t see it, then you have some work to do.

The reading come On Path (“Owani Ofun”) which benefits both Family (“Ogbe Ogunda”) and our Destiny (“Otura Ogbe”). We must propitiate our Ori (“Otura Meji”) for clarity of intention. The Ebbo (“offering”) is Shea Butter (“Otura Meji”).

Observation for Ifa diviners:  the same Odu “Otura Meji” came out for both, the Ori and for the Ebbo. Also, when you consider the primary Odu Eji-Ogbe, take a look at the subsets. Ogbe appeared on the temporal side for family relationships, indicating that the benefits will be more apparent here.  Then Ogbe appeared again, this time on emotional/spiritual side for our Destiny, a subtle yet profound benefit as we always want to advance our destinies.

If you have an Ori spiritual tool, you can light a white tea candle and place a clear glass of water in front of it and rub the shea butter. In any case, you will take some shea butter and rub it on the crown of your head where the Ori resides. As you do this, visualize your future and having the clarity of intention to make it happen. It goes without saying the positive thinking is essential, don’t introduce negative thoughts as to what could go wrong.

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.
