IWORI MEJI IN HEAVEN.
Being in Heaven, IWORI MEJI was the oldest Olodu (Apostle) of ORUNMILA. He was very efficient in the art and practices of Ifá. He raised several heavenly priests and also had many substitutes working for himself. However, he was very cocky, which explains why he eventually lost his seniority to EJIOGBE and OYEKU MEJI, who were, on the other hand, much younger than him in Heaven.
He did work in Heaven, although tales do not exist of these, since he did not allow his followers in Heaven to come to Earth, which would have revealed his heavenly works here. However, some of his heavenly works have been recounted by those who have benefited from them.
THE WORKS OF IWORI MEJI IN HEAVEN.
EJIKOKO IWORI made divination for the Sun, Moon and Darkness.
His title in Heaven was Kpau Yakata. He made divination for the Sun, the Moon and the Dark when they were coming to the World. In Yorubá they are called Eye to the Sun, Oshukpa to the Moon and Okuku to the Darkness. He advised the three brothers to make sacrifice in the following way: The Sun was to make sacrifice with a pile of brooms, white cloth, a white rooster and a white hen.
The Moon had to make sacrifice with red cloth, a brown rooster and a brown hen.
The Darkness had to make sacrifice with black cloth, a black rooster and a black hen.
He advised them to make sacrifices so that the people of the World could honor and respect them, but more especially so that people could not look at their faces disdainfully. Most importantly, the sacrifice was meant to give him power and energy, which would make them indispensable wherever he went.
The Moon said that he was too handsome and popular to worry about sacrificing himself for any sacrifice. The Darkness said that he was gifted with the right traits to demand respect and fear wherever he went. He also refused to make any sacrifices. The Sun was the only one who made sacrifice. However, previously the Moon had made sacrifice for love, which is the reason why people rejoice when they see the new Moon.
After having made a sacrifice, the Sun was given the heap of brooms with which he made a sacrifice so that he would always have it in his hand, with the advice that it should be pointed at the face of anyone who dared to look him straight ahead. Those are the rays of the sun, which dazzle the eyes of anyone who tries to look directly at your face. However, he is admired because the heat he generates is used for a variety of purposes throughout the Planetary System.
Nobody cares much about the Darkness and it is not used for any tangible purpose, because it made no sacrifice. For this same reason, the Moon is only admired, but it is neither feared like the Sun nor used for productive purposes.
IWORI MADE DIVINATION FOR AKUN (THE CORAL BEAD)
Before leaving Heaven, the Account also went to IWORI MEJI, seeking divination. He, however, instructed three of his surrogates to do the divination for the Count. They were:
AFUN YIN YIN
AKE YIN YIN
OYIN YIN KE BI ALA
They made divination for the Coral Bead (AKUN in Yorubá and IVIE in Bini) who was called Olomo Akeriwaye in Heaven. They advised him to make sacrifice so that he could live forever on Earth as an instrument of ornament and nobility, and to be handled with respect and dignity. He had to make a sacrifice with a Male Goat, a Rat, a Fish, a White Hen, a White Dove, white cloth and white thread.
He made the sacrifice before coming to the World, where he was greeted with joy. Since he came to the World, he did it to demand the respect of each and every one until this day. He is associated with the Royal aristocracy and ceremonial ornaments.
HE ALSO MADE DIVINATION FOR LEAD.
While in Heaven, two Awos who were working for IWORI MEJI, made divination for Lead (OJE in Yoruba and OZE in Bini) when he was being classified as useless in Heaven. The two Awos were:
KAUN GERE AWO ILE ARAN and A FOSILE AWO ODE KANRAN MUSI, ADIFAFUN EJE MINI MINI NIGBA TI GBOGBO ORUN FI OJU IMERE WE EJE.
As he had a malleable physique, he was told that he would not live long after he reached Earth. It was seen as a union that would die as soon as it reached Earth.
In divination, the Awos told him to make sacrifice with a Duck, a Rooster and a Vulture.
He made the sacrifice and came to the World, where he lived so long that he outlived all those who expected him to die young.
For this reason, a poem was composed in praise of his longevity, which is sung by Awos to this day.
UGUN-UGUN KII KU LEWE KANGE
MAADAGBA MAADARIGBO KANGE (what does it mean)
The Vulture does not die in infancy, I will live to an advanced age, because
Not even lead rots
Not even the Bronze rusts.
When IWORI MEJI goes out in divination or Igbodun for a sick person, this special sacrifice (omo Ifá) must be prepared, so that he can live a long time. It is said that this work was the last done by EJIOKO IWORI before coming to the World. He composed the following poem before finally reaching this place:
ALADE TEOJU MOMI KOO, WOMI IRE
BO OMODE BAA TEJU, MOMA RI OWO
BO OMODE BAA TEJU, AAMOFA,
EJI KOKO IWORI
ALADE TEEJU MONI KO WO EMI IRE
EJI KOKO IWORI
