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

ogbe weñe - ogbe iwori

A babalawo cannot be wise enough to predict the sign or Odu of Ifa that will appear in a divination or consultation. Ogbe Iwori is the 18th Odu of the Ifa genealogical order.

Analysis and reflection by Ogbe Iwori

Ifa in this Oddun tells us about the importance of respect and good treatment that we have towards our elders, as long as we have a kind behavior all positive things will come into our lives.

Ogbe Iwori is a turbulent odu where we must be cautious and perform ebbo to prevent our opponents from beating us, since this is a sign that reflects how malicious our enemies can be, they will stick to different negative energies in order to harm us. We must avoid falling into the temptation to act in the same way, we must not do wrong or ask for misfortune for others justifying ourselves in revenge, since it is the Orishas who must be in charge of evaluating each situation.

Orunmila will make the one who follows his advice and is guided by his ethical code victorious, since he will never let the person fall, who Ogbe Weñe reveals to him.

It also exhorts us to verify the parenting methods that are applied to our children, as we must avoid excessive consent and not allow children to disrespect older relatives when they visit our home.

Economic aspect

Ifa in this sign predicts the success for the person, the businesses and the project will materialize, but we must not forget the benefactors or those people who were paving the way so that we could achieve our objectives. We must through Ifa determine which is the sacrifice that we must make to the Orisha Obatala, it is this deity that will help us find success, which should not be neglected by the person who follows this astral.

Ogbe Iwori says that there are many people who do not want us to be successful, we must learn to identify these people and remove them from our environment, because they will try through witchcraft to block our path and evolution. This Sign advises us to stay away from people who practice palería or have some type of garment.

Ogbe weñe religious aspect

Ogbe Weñe (Iwori) is an Odu Maferefun Eggun, sacrifices must be made to the ancestors especially to the spirituality of the father, because here it is this eggun who will help achieve the goals that the person has.

Ifa says for whom the Oddun Ogbe Iwori is revealed, that he or she will fulfill all their ambitions as long as they have the support of their eggun protectors.

Also for this sign men are recommended to receive ozain, because through this deity they will be able to overcome the arayes and avoid the complications that arise from any curse or sorcery that they practice against us.

The recommendations should always be followed, because this ifa is very complex, because if we neglect our astral and spiritual means, a chaos can result that will end in the destruction of our home with which our stability will end. Here it is also said that the Iyami are generating disturbance, it is advisable to pay attention to the witches and Gold to appease which negative energy that disturbs us.

Patakie of the sign of Ifa Ogbe Weñe:

Preparations to leave Ogbe Iwori Heaven.


These were the two Awoses who guessed for Ogbe Iwori before he left Heaven to come to the world. They told him that he would be a team leader and collector and would perform great feats. They told him to sacrifice to his Guardian Angel with a dead goat, chicken and 16 snails.

They also told him to make sacrifice with a male goat to Eshu and to celebrate Ogun with a rooster, a dog, and a tortoise. He made the sacrifices and came to the World.

Before leaving for Earth, they told him not to travel anywhere that was far from his home without consulting his Ifá, because the only painful point in his life would be the risk of catastrophe that could occur in his absence.

That is the reason why when this Odu "Ogbe Weñe" manifests in divination, all who are present should look back, to the right and to the left and pray: "That Orúnmila does not allow the battle to invade me from behind. "

Ogbe Iwori: Osanyin king of medicine and harm.

On the top of a hill lived father and son, the father was Palero or Sorcerer and the son did not agree with that religion, as the child grew more problems arose between father and son, until the child was already a boy He left home to make a living, after spending a lot of time and work he had to live a long time in the mountains, one day at dusk a man who had only one eye appeared to him, one-armed and lame, the scared boy tried to lie down to run but could not, the man calmed him down and explained all the work he had gone through because of his father's witchcraft
but that he was not bad, the boy approached that strange man and asked him how he knew
so much of his life to which he replied:

Telling him that he was the King of the mountains and that he, although imperfect, possessed such great and extensive powers to the point that without his help there would be no birth of any religion because he possessed all the secrets and that if he had any doubt he would give him his name So that he did not hesitate and said, my name is Osanyin and I am the King of all the medicinal and harmful elements that exist.

The boy was even more surprised, because he knew that there lived a being that everyone called Osanyin and that everyone feared. The visitor left promising to return the next day and he did so, after repeating his visits for three consecutive Fridays Osain sat the boy on the third Friday and said, because with the need you have and the hunger you are going through, you have not He asked for nothing, so the boy replied that he was the King of those places, he had to know everything that was happening and he did not ask because he was used to not asking because he felt sorry for it. Osanyin said come with me and took him to the most intricate part of the mountain, already inside three Fridays passed in which Osanyin prepared a Cauldron for the boy, the last Friday he called him and told him I give you this so that from now on he does not go through more difficulties or bad times provided by the Sorcerers, all the battles you will win as long as you obey me, but you will always answer to your father because he made you and he will need you.

The boy left the mountain and settled on the outskirts of a town where he met several people whom he served over time, he went to visit Orúnmila and consulted him and he told him that he had to do Ifá so that his luck would be complete and so did.

As the years went by, this boy became a man of great fame for his powers and virtues, he did not ignore Osanyin or Orúnmila.

One day the father sent for him to look for him urgently because he was sick and the son went to the father and found him that for a long time he had been suffering from diseases that his garment did not cure him, the son consulted him and had ebo made with several things and also that Sarayeye was made with a griffin rooster and gave it to Osanyin, the father did so and he was cured and from then on they have been taken as father and son (The boy was Ogbe Weñe).
