The odu ifa that came out for today’s Ose-Ifa Reading is Ogbe-Ose with blessing of longetivity.

Ifa advices us to make sacrifice (ebbo) to esu, so that we can be successful in our endeavor/journey in all ramification of life and we need to appease our “ORI”, so that we can live more longer and triumph over our enemy.

Thus, we need some “akose” to be done as incision on our head for longetivity.

Ifa said and I quoted:

“ Ogbe sere ni seke adifa fun akinlawon.

Nigba ti oun ti ikole orun bo waye,

ti ori re yi o si d’ota,

ebo ogbo ato ni won ni kose.

Nje ori akinlawon di ota, ogbe sere ni seke,

ori akinlawon d’ota ogbe sere ni seke ”

English Version

” Ogbe sere ni seke cast divination for akinlawon,

when he was embarking on a journey of longetivity from heaven to earth,

    he was ask to make sacrifice.

    Thus, the head of akinlawon became stronger,

    ogbe sere ni seke,

    the head (destiny) of akinlawon be stronger like a stone. “
