Says Ifa Odi Meyi:

When ODI MEJI appears in divination for someone whose fortune has declined, the Ifá priest will recommend that you have a feast with two goats, one for Ifá to celebrate his Elders of the Night and another to congratulate those around him and thus ensure May prosperity return.

Ifa says when ODI MEYI goes out in Igbodun, it means that the Alawo must be advised to make sacrifice so that he does not suffer for the children. Likewise, the consultant must be advised to remove himself from a woman, in addition to telling him to offer a goat to Eshu so that he can get out of an inevitable fight, he must also beg his head and serve OGUN. When you go out in a fortune-telling, Ókpele, you have to tell the person who is on the eve of a journey that he has to avoid. But if he cannot, he will have to honor OGUN before undertaking it, surely he will also have to undertake certain conversations or negotiations that he should not carry out without first serving OGUN.

That ORUNMILA and OBATALA asked you something that you have not fulfilled. He lost something that he voted years ago and he is going to find it. You dreamed that you were drowning and, jumping up, woke up as if you were drowning.

You have three male children or there are three in the family, be careful with one, do not have legal trouble.- Your eldest son has a friend who always hang out together, and that friend is going to do a bad thing, for which they blames his son. The thing is from a robbery. Your belly hurts. Give thanks to ORUNMILA.

You plan to go to a place where you will find a good thing. You love your family more than they love you and you will have to save them, because you came into the world to be head and that is the envy they have for you.-Tell your eldest son not to hang out with that friend of yours, they They are fighting.- Two of his children do not believe in the Saint, the other does. You came to see a woman's affair because she wants to leave you. Don't let her go, because she brings you luck. He has two enemies that are chasing him

Pataki of the sign of Ifa Odi Meyi:


There was a man who had a small capital, but he was very wasteful, both in gambling and in women. Due to this, the capital almost ran out and he decided to consult with ORUNMILA, leaving him
this Ifá ODI MEYI, marking him ebó.

When the man left ORUNMILA's house, he thought he was going to spend the little money he had left to make the ebo. Eshu, who guessed his thought, prepared three dolls for him, to which he put three spirits, empowering them to speak and move, and waited on the road with the three SHISHIRIKU.

When the man saw them, he was greatly amazed and asked Eshu how much each one was worth. Eshu replied: -I don't sell them separately and if you want to buy it they have to be all three.

The man thought that this would be a great deal and gave Eshu all the money he had left for the three dolls, he took them home and at night the spirits that animated the dolls, went out and began to walk around the house talking and screaming.

The man, scared by what he was seeing, almost went crazy and finally had to get rid of the three dolls and go back to ORUNMILA's house.

This time he had to do Ebó and the work of the three gourds to remove the three EGUN ARAYE that disturbed him and have more development and gave two black hens to Ifá.

In little loops, they begin to weave the fishing net,
As soon as it is done, it will be wide
It can swallow a mortar
This may contain a mill
They were the ones who made divination for Àkèsán
The richest man who made the first market
Àkèsán was the first market created on Earth
A King took possession of the market
And the King was a woman
She was advised to offer sacrifice in order to have a good influx of people
She made the sacrifice
She offered the full sacrifice
And the whole world joined with Àkèsán
Till the date
Other markets have been built
Àkèsán was the first market

She became great and began to invoke and praise Ifá
Ifá is praising Olódùmarè.
She did just as her Awo had told her

The wealthy man's market
She was advised to offer a great sacrifice
To be famous, known and powerful
Àkèsán heard about the sacrifice
And he did
Offering sacrifices
And giving his portion to Èsù,
Come and find us with good news
Usually one finds the good news at the foot of the King of the Òrìsàs
