OGBE KANA Council.

Those children of Ogbe Kana, for whom this Odu appears in the divination of birth or in an initiation ceremony of Igbodun, are advised by Orúnmila as follows:

Orunmila did not hate Okitirikpa,

Emini Eshu noo eshe mejeji iran di Onan
Orunmila nikia mu okanti aletiale
fi ka kuro wa.
Ani eku, Oni kin she eku,
Ani eja Oni min she eja,
Moni Orúnmila Kini or ofi kakuroni Ono.
Oni ki aro akika ati Okpolokpo akara.

When the required sacrifices are not made to Eshu, he puts his feet in the way so that people cannot go about their daily affairs, then these people begin to feel hungry and go to Orúnmila, who advises them to serve with akika (porcupine ) to Eshu, to appease his anger.

After the sacrifice is done Eshu takes his feet out of the way, saying: Kabi Kara Kabi Kuro loju ono.

If this Odu comes out in divination for a person who intends to travel, he is advised to sacrifice the head of a porcupine for Eshu, with enough akara. But you cannot travel until 7 days after the sacrifice has been made.

When health comes.

Agbonniregun says that Ogbe must touch you; I say Ogbe should touch you; He says that when Ogbe stops for a moment at the house of the King of Ara, he will become healthy and start spending money profusely on the streets; he says if he stops at his apprentice's house, it's healthy.

Patakie of the sign Ogbe Kana:

Ogbe Okanran leaves for the World.

Eja a Ubu Ati Oniji Male Odo, they were the Awos who guessed for Ogbe Kana (Ogbe Okanran) when he came to the World. He was advised not to live in abandoned houses (Ati Kporo le in Yoruba and Owa Nevbo Nasikpaa in Beni. He was also told not to play balls with anyone, while in the world, to enjoy his luck to the end. His head with four snails, a dove and a goat to receive honors from the people He made the sacrifice.

When he entered the World, he was told to live in an abandoned abode. Not remembering what was advised, he went to live in the place. The house was run down, the roof leaked when it rained. He was a famous priest, he consulted everyone in that rickety place. He consulted his Ifa and he advised him to make sacrifice with a male goat to Eshu and a dove, a goat and a snail at his head.

He accomplished everything. After this, Eshu challenged the townspeople by telling him that if they weren't ashamed to consult in such a run-down place.

They all got together and built a suitable house for him.

The incantation Eshu used to attract the townspeople was:

Tigi Tokpe loun Shaanu fun ighere.

It means:

Both the trees and the palms respect and honor the ginger plant.

After this, he lived happily and prospered.

Awo moni boshe was unhappy because he did not listen to the advice of shangó (Ogbe Kana)

PRAYER: Ogbe Kana Awó neither bebe nor lorun awó Boni Boshe abelekun lorun inlé ganga nor lo e bani laye inlé borele oni ofotomi yo ni Shango omó Awó Moni Boshe Olorun Shango Ogbe Kana Shango odara.

EBO: Fresh fish, quail, grains, Aragba stick, a stone, brandy, 3 guinea pepper, honey, lots of cocoa butter, roasted corn, money.

Note: The owner of this sign can never be separated from Shango, to overcome difficulties, for this Ifá you always have to give fresh Fish to Shango.


On this road in the Ganga ni Lode land, there lived an Awó son of Shango called Moni Boshe, said Awó spent a lot of work to direct the land, because they did not see good results from everything he sent and said. His town began to get sick and the problems among the inhabitants were increasing, all this happened to Awó Moni Boshe because his father was always advising him to stick to him and not to listen to the advice of his mother that in this Odu was not called Eni Ofo Temillo, who had taught her son Moni Boshe nothing but everything bad, she had him as if he were a slave, for the selfishness that no one else was by his side, he could not have happiness with no woman and every time he had one, his mother Eni Ofo Temillo, went to the secret that she had, which consisted of a stone and called it this way: Totori lala Eni Ofo Thyme iyá Awó Boni Boshe Obini ofo, oreran lerí Awó Moni Boshe.

He smeared corojo butter on the stone and covered it with a black cloth, and the woman that Awó Moni Boshe had began to dodge and abandon him. All this problem had him very worried Shangó, seeing that his son did not listen to his advice and was guided by his mother.

One day Shango caught a Pashan, Ero and with a white hen he called Eni Ofo Thyme's secret in this way: Oni Lele mafun Oporogun Awó Moni Boshe Maliye Ibare Lekun Laye Iyá Awó Moni Boshe. And he gave the stone the blood of the white hen, the mother of Mono Boshe began to feel stunned, at which point she took advantage of Shango and took Mono Boshe to the land of Ganga ni Lode, to rule that town and let him forget his mother to be someone in life, and told him: you have to learn, even if it costs you a lot of work, to lead this land, the influence of your mother will always reach you, that's why you have to stick to me I'm the only one who can save you

Awó Moni Boshe did not hear Shango and kept his thoughts fixed on his mother, that is why in the land of Ganga and Lode everything was backwardness and illness. Once the entire population gathered in front of the house of Awó Moni Boshe, to ask him to save him from so much epidemic and backwardness, he said that he would call Shangó his father, he did so and Shangó immediately came to his call and went with his son to earth, when seeing them arrive the population was very happy, thinking that Shango could help them, Awó Moni Boshe sent messages of works and works for his people, but his people got worse, the sick began to die and vice versa, All this was due to the action of Shango that was creating problems for His son, because he did not want to hear it.

Seeing this misfortune, Awó Moni Boshe threw herself to cry at Shango's feet, he asked for forgiveness and told him; That I would obey him in everything, that he forgive his mother to perform a ceremony for me, when the mother arrived and saw her son so destroyed, she asked for forgiveness and said: forgive me for being so selfish and harsh with him. Awó Moni Boshe forgave her and told Shango; What is the ceremony I have to do to return to Ganga ni Lode land and save it, Shango told him; Look for a fresh Fish and next to a Ceiba call me well and give it to me together with your head.

I pray to give Shango fresh fish and his head.

Salara ordo ni Ifá Awó Moni Boshe abeyemi Ifá kori bo wo ayé oni lorun Oduduwa Orúnmila awa Ifa'moyare odara Ifá Shango aguani lorun.

Suyere del Pescado at the helm.
"Eyé Eyeni Lerí Aragba Feleguegue Awa Boreo."

When Awó Moni Boshe finished the ceremony, Shango put his hands on his head and said; Now go to the land that you will save little by little, although there will always be problems and diseases… .. To Iban Eshu.
