Oyekun Meyi marks destruction of cultures and traditions. You have to believe in order not to lose your own identity and the true meaning of life. It is the kingdom of Eshu. People turn away from spirituality and fall into the trap of false perceptions through their imperfect sense organs.

Baba Oyekun Meji speaks:

When this Odu appears for a child, parents should be told that their child is coming as a "reformer" but unless special sacrifices are made on his behalf (as Ondo Agutan was told in Heaven), he will not live to fulfill his task, and his popularity will only come after his death. The sacrifice consists of a goat to Eshu and a piece of red cloth.

It is likely that when this Oyekun Meyi appears for a woman, she will become pregnant or have her period. If these two possibilities are ruled out, he should be advised to offer a rooster to Ogún to prevent any incident that could lead to bloodshed. Within the next three to five days, she must be told that there is an old woman close to her who is doing witchcraft on her. Then he must offer a hen and nine eggs at night (Etutu) to neutralize the evil intentions of the old woman.

A fortune teller, whether male or female, must be told that if he has not lost money, this will soon happen; but that you should not worry unduly about it, since the loss must compensate for greater or worse calamities.

In consultation with Ikin (awofakan or Ikofafun), the man must offer a dead goat to Ifá because Orúnmila wishes to make a secret revelation to that man. When the Odu Oyeku Meyi appears at the initiation ceremonies of Igbodun, the initiate should be told that: Oyeku Meji is also known by the nickname Edidu Kpere Oyumung.

He was the son of an atheist and a witch. His name means "He who escaped death." The posthumous tribute is born.

You will be rich and prosperous in life if you carefully prepare your Ono (your path based on the sacrifice to Ifá).

If you are lucky enough to marry the right woman at a young age, your prosperity will be positively influenced by her.

The person should not dedicate himself to religious consecrations, since this is not his fundamental activity.

To avoid death when you enjoy prosperity, you must sacrifice four chickens, four hutias, and four fish. So you can enjoy the riches of your work without the hassle or risks of returning to hardship.

He must offer a hutía and a fish to avoid death and disease, a pig to Ifá and a goat to his head for the second time.

This Odu was the one who made divination for the rain and reveals that Olokun and Orúnmila are served on white tablecloths and are sacrificed inside the house because when they came down to the world they did not protect themselves from the downpour that Eshu had unleashed and continued on their way to arrive at the destination, while the rest of the deities are served in sacrifice in the place that each one chose when they came to the world for the second time.

Example: Shango (La Palma Real), Oshún (El Río), Sankpana (The entrance of the towns), Oke (La Loma), etc.

Obatala who was one of the last deities to come down to Earth), is also served within the home because he did not come down with the rest of the deities.

Never stop in the rain when you are doing any work, whether or not you have an umbrella, keep going.

He must tell him that his head is not strong, that he is a Fae or Abikú (who is coming to Earth in passing), and that knowledgeable Ifá priests must take him to the interception of a road or road and prepare a special sacrifice with which will bathe. The sacrifice consists of palm oil, three pieces of dried Kolá nut seed, dried leaves of the Ikin bush, and a rooster.

The rooster will be sacrificed in the interception of the road. The corojo, the dried seeds of the Kolá walnut and the dried leaves of the Ikin bush are crushed and with that Omiero he will bathe and rub his head well. For this work, the priests of Ifá must pronounce the following incantation: «Oloba (the Fire) is sick and dying. The rat, the fish and the hen were offered in sacrifice. The goat was later sacrificed to revive the fire.

Despite these sacrifices, his illness became serious.

Predictions of the sign of Ifa Baba Oyekun Meyi:

When this Odu Oyekun Meji appears in the Okpele or Ikin divination (in ordinary divination or daily consultation) the diviner should be advised that:

A new life must begin.

He speaks of disease of care, dislocation of the foot, broken waist, prostration, paralysis. There is no assurance of salvation for the sick if they come or suffer.

All plaster images must be thrown away.

When this Odu appears on the board (divination tray) you have to get up, walk around and sit down again. The person concerned must be warned that death is prowling him and that he must offer a sacrifice to Eshu of mashed yam mixed with salt and palm oil and loaded with pebbles; There must also be a live black hen on the Eshu altar to drive away death.

Oyekun Meyi was the one who revealed that Iku does not eat pebbles and prohibits the cry of the black hen. (Uke yec) If it appears for a newborn, the parents should be told to make the same sacrifice that the rain did before coming to the world with a goat to Eshu, black cloth and bundle of stakes; so that the child can rise above the various powerful enemies that he will have to face in the course of life.

This type of sacrifice requires special incantations that can only be done by Ifa priests. To have children, you must offer a goat, a hen, and a dove as a sacrifice.

Children should not use umbrellas to protect themselves from the rain.

This was the Odu who taught humanity how Orúnmila managed to stop the threat of premature death.

When this sign appears for a woman who wishes to have a child, she must be told that she is responsible for her infertility because not only is she stronger, but she has more vision than her husband.

If the sign of Ifa Oyekun Meyi appears for a man who wishes to have children, he should be told that his wife is not as eager to have children as he is. In order for his wife to have a child, he must use a boa and make a sacrifice to Ifá if he has one or he must make preparations to receive his own in order to contain the superior diabolical powers of his wife.

Says Ifa in Baba Oyekun Meyi

That there will be a distancing of the godson from the Awó, the Babalorisha and Iyalorisha, or the religious house, for reasons of misunderstanding and because the former believe that they can fly ahead of time and show their disgrace to those who teach them what they did not know.

That where you live there are two people who are sick to their stomach. "One has dreamed of a Saint." He has clothes that he will have to pray with to get rid of death. Give thanks to SHANGO.-Mark plague, epidemic, disease that comes and destroys through blood, whose name is "Alagba Baba Maliwo" (which means "the Father punishes the disrespectful and haughty civilization).

You are three brothers and a friend.-Do not wear clothes from lists.That friend of yours dresses the same as you, do not continue to dress the same because death is behind your friend and you can confuse him.-Be careful with a child that is in your house, do not go to have setbacks.

Listen to the advice they give you because sometimes you ignore it. Have a dislike, do Ebó. In your house there is another person who is sick and if he does not pray, he can die.-In the displeasure that you had, you wanted them to give each other satisfaction. You have to pray with the blanket that was given to you or the new dress, so that death may go away because Shango does not want you to die. you have to be careful with a fall, lest a limb be affected.

You will always have to be doing Ebó, which you will have to do double. Always do good so that you can prosper in life. He has three enemies who want to destroy him, make Ebo so that he can defeat them. You cannot enter wooded places alone. You cannot have bee hives. he has to feed Egun. Take care of a disease of the Chest, as you have to take care of getting sick from the skin. he cannot abuse the fallen one who is in his way.

Nature will be aggressive and will destroy crops, bring disease, desolation and tears,
storms, ecological disasters, polluted waters and stomach ailments.

There will be destruction of cultures and traditions, where people will have to believe in order not to lose their own identity and the true meaning of life.

Patakie of the Baba Oyekun Meyi sign:

When the trees did not make Ebo.

EBO: 2 roosters, 2 pigeons, 2 black chickens, 2 machetes, 2 drums, jutía, okra, toasted corn, corojo butter, a lot of money.

On this road, Orúnmila told the trees to do Ebo for a bad thing that was coming. Most of the trees did not heed Orúnmila's warning, only Jobo, Mar Pacífico and Hay obeyed and did Ebó.

Shortly after, a great storm of water appeared and the trees were uprooted, only those who did Ebó were saved, who were the ones who paid attention to Orúnmila.

Note: It marks a storm of water and wind and that only those who make Ebó are saved, so it is very important in this Odu to be becoming Ebó to overcome difficulties.

Where the old authorized the young as workers.


At one time, the boys worked as helpers for the old men in the construction of the houses, until the day came when the boys thought they knew enough, and since they made little money they decided to separate and do the work on their own.

They began to do cheaper jobs, but it happened that when it rained the works would come to the ground, and there were so many protests that they reached Olofin's ear, where he called the young and the old to a meeting.

Olofin ordered each one to build a house, leaving the boys in a bad way. Olofin asked the old men what that consisted of and they replied that the boys put all the tiles face up instead of doing one face-up and another face-down to form the channel.

Olofin, hearing the positive response from the old men, said: -From now on, the old men are the ones who authorize the boys as workers. To. Were going. Eshu.

Shango's son sick to his stomach.

EBO: mutton, rooster, ekrú, hutía and smoked fish, roasted corn, a lot of money.

Note: This Ebó is taken to a forest where there is a house in ruins.

There was a son of Shango that he was always sick to his stomach, for which he was very weak and death constantly pursued him. One day he decided to go see Orúnmila, who made him Osode and saw this Ifá, Oyeku Meji, where Orúnmila told him that he had to do Ebó (the one indicated above), but despite that Ebó, he had every so often to become Ebó, so that he would not fall into the same situation.

Shango's son made the Ebó and took it to a place where there was a Palace in ruins. When placing the Ebo, he was very scared, since the tree where he was going to place it collapsed and it was to his surprise that under the tree he found a treasure. That treasure was distributed among his family, but he forgot what Orúnmila told him, that Ebó should continue to do, and he returned to misery and became ill, until death seized him.

Note: For this Ifá the person has to be constantly doing Ebo, both for health and to prosper.

The two friends.


In this way, there were two friends who had such affinity that they dressed alike, went together at parties and drunkenness and even went to sleep together in the same bed.

One day they went out on a party where they got drunk, slept together and one of them died from drunkenness. And they sent for Ogun, who was the undertaker, to bury him. That day Ogun was drunk and when he got to that house and when he saw two people lying down and dressed alike, he took the one who was asleep and buried him and left the dead man.

Note: For this Ifá, you should not dress the same as any of your friends because they will confuse you with one of them and you may be in danger.
