Iwori Meyi: Meaning, what is born sayings, patakies and more

odu of ifa Iwori Meji

Ifá says that life will favor this person, but he must make the prescribed sacrifice. Iwori Meyi is an omission of Iwa Orí meaning the character of consciousness, or the inner essence of consciousness. Ifá teaches that all things in the Universe have some form of consciousness. The word Iwori implies an association with the consciousness process that forms its own unique identity. In psychological terms this is called individualization.

In Ifá the concept of Iwori is associated with spiritual transformation symbolized by the element of fire.

This Odu is made up of Iwori on the right side, male principle and Iwori on the left female principle.

Patakie of the Baba Iwori Meyi sign:



On this road, there was a landowner who had many people working on his farm. And one day, ORUNMILA appeared to him, who was IWORI MEYI, and told him that he alone did much more than all those who were working there.

The landowner replied: «Well, if that's the case, you can start today. But, ORUNMILA began to look at all the workers.

While in this operation, it was time for lunch and so did ORUNMILA. The landowner said to him: «Well, when are you going to start working? To which ORUNMILA replied: "In the afternoon."

Time passed and ORUNMILA did nothing. The landowner, slyly, sent for the Mayor and, after speaking several times with him, said: «By the way, look at this man who is here, he has charged me an advance job and these are the many hours that his work is abandoned ».

ORUNMILA, who heard him, turned to him and said: Doctor, a man on horseback will arrive shortly, in great haste, who is coming to look for him because his wife is in labor. In order for her to give birth well, she has to do EBO, or else she dies.

The Mayor responds: "Is there no remedy to avoid that?" And ORUNMILA said to him: Give me two pesos for the first thing I told you and two pesos for the medicine; And since I have to keep talking, Mr. Squire, take out a horse that you have, that you stole and keep it hidden.

The landowner told him to be quiet. "If you want me to shut up, you have to give me two more pesos." And he gave it to them.
And since then, IWORI MEJI stayed as a fortune-teller in that town.
