Patakie of the Iwori Bogbe sign:

When Osun and Eshu saved Iwori Ogbe

Along this path, there was a time when Osun and ORUNMILA were good friends and loved each other very much.

For this reason, Osun was always giving advice to his friend ORUNMILA, but he never paid attention to him, because he believed himself superior to him because of the trust and ashé that OLODUMARE had granted him.

But it turns out that every day it got worse and Osun did not tire of advising him, but ORUNMILA continued to ignore him, since he continued to consider himself superior to resolve any matter, since everyone counted on him.

Osun, already tired, made up his mind and goes to see Olodumare and complains about how ORUNMILA was. OLODUMARE sent for him, scolded him and advised him, advice that for a time he followed. But then he continued as before, doing things as he pleased, for which reason he was losing, moments that his enemies took advantage of to surround him and tear off his head, which they did not achieve because Eshu got in the way, saving ORUNMILA, that was lost by stubborn and disobedient.

The prosperity of Iwori Ogbe

In this way the land of ABEYONI was poor. There lived an Awó called IFA FORE and he lived with great concern because his land was not prospering in anything.

One day his son, who was called IFA SHE, told him: - «My father, I need to go out for a walk to find your luck, mine and also that of our Earth». The Father got very angry with his son and punished him.

He began to cry and fell asleep, and began to dream of ORUNMILA and the latter told him in the dream to give him a white and a black hen, along with his head, to peel them well in front of him and sing to him:


From those feathers that he was pulling out, a storm was going to form, which would later find it and there would be the fate of him and his land, and where he had to go to live. And this Earth would be called IFA BI ASHE.

The Awó woke up scared, he went to the patio of the house to gather the chickens, his father saw him and he was very angry. AWI IFA SHE told his Father what he dreamed of and he told him: - «This is all your lie».

Father lay down at the foot of a poplar tree in the courtyard and fell asleep. At that moment, IFA SHE took the hens and gave them to ORUNMILA and his head. Then Eshu came in and told IFA SHE that he couldn't leave right now. And Eshu began to sing:


Then the storm formed and he grabbed IFA in his hand and went out together with Eshu and the father was left dead. And he continued along with his Ifá, because the storm could not be endured and Eshu was singing along the way:


And they kept walking and Eshu said: Don't look back, the storm cleaned that Earth.

They arrived where SHANGO was and IFA SHE knelt in front of SHANGO and greeted him, and he said:

Put your Ifá on the floor and on the board, because in three days I have to do a ceremony, but now we are going to eat AMALA, ILA and ISHU, which is what I have to offer you. They sat down to eat, but IFA SHE kept thinking of his Father; and SHANGO said to himself: "Be calm, your luck is defined." For you to bring luck to Earth, this had to happen.

After three days, IFA SHE had already been convinced and SHANGO told him: -I am going to put you in luck that your father had to have left you so that she is always with you. He took SHANGO, wrapped it in poplar leaves, called his father's Egun, and gave him a white rooster. The Egun came and said: «You will have all my luck with that of ORUNMILA, SHANGO and ESHU. To have it, you will have to clarify a lot with ORUNMILA ». When SHANGO was at this ceremony, he made the call singing:


They finished feeding EGUN, they took the rooster and put it in a jar and put four stones from the sea, four stones from the river and one from the jungle, a hand of a snail, bait, they threw guacalote, ox eye and They fed him along with IFA, a white and a black hen, they buried her and the big storm was tamed; where the feathers flew off and fell on the Land of INLE TOKA.

In that Earth were the Oshas, ​​mainly OLOKUN, who was waiting for an Awó to rule that Earth. SHANGO said to IFA SHE: Go together with Eshu on the way to that Earth that sees there, which is where you will live well. Later I will go to visit you and there you have to find your mother, who will help you and has strength in that Earth. It is called ABEYONI.

So did this one. OLOKUN had told ABEYONI that an Awó who was his son was coming, so that she would help him when he reached his land.

The first one to enter was Eshu. ABEYONI, who had a gourd in his hand, said to OLOKUN: "This way comes Eshu." And OLOKUN said: -Your son is also coming. And she said to him: - «I don't see it. And Olokun and Abeyoni began to sing:


And suddenly IFA SHE appeared. He knelt in front of the mother and Olokun saw that all the feathers were watered. He gave his Ifa to his mother and Eshu and Olokun began to collect all the feathers for him to make Ebo.

The mother, Abeyoni, stopped him in the center of the land that he was going to rule, with all the crowded people.

But he said: - "Until Shango arrives, you have no voice or command." And he said to Eshu: - «Go find Shango, to be a witness, because he was the one who gave you the luck to find me. You will rule many lands, because you will have to walk, but this is your Earth. " At that moment, Eshu went to look for Shango and the people of that land did something for Ifá to live. Shango came with Eshu and said: -You have to make Ebo to everyone with earth. A wind formed and they began to pick up the dirt and leaves that were in the air.

IFA SHE did the Ebó. Abeyoni called Shango, Eshu and Olokun, and they went to under a poplar tree, where he said: - «My son, I know that you have feelings for me because I fought with your Father». And he told him everything that happened to him. «I had to go for a walk and I always wanted to have you by my side, but he didn't want to, so that you could pass work. But this Land in which I am, with riches, where all the Oshas that I rule and who have great faith in me come, was your Father's and he despised it and went to die in another land. "It's yours."

As it thundered, a wind was felt and a voice said: Sorry. And he said: - My luck is yours.

Shango consecrated it, took a banana, cooked it and ate it, threw an obi-kolá on it and gave it to IFA SHE with the heart and with the language of the banana he made an Inshe, with the obi-kolá. Then, from that moment, came the prosperity of IFA SHE - IWORI GBOGBE.

Note: This güiro is fed with Shango.

Gone With the Wind

He was a King who had a great Palace, very beautiful, and one day it was for ORUNMILA to make him Bear, seeing this Ifá, where Orúnmila told him that he had to do Ebó (the one marked above), because a storm was expected and his Palace and his children.

The King, who was very proud, ignored him, telling him that his Palace was a fortress and that there was no wind to knock it down. In a short time, the storm came and took away the castle and the children, leaving the King in the street.

That's what the wind took away, for ignoring Orula.

NOTE: For this Ifá, he loses the house and ends his life alone.
