Says Ifa Okana Meyi:

When this Odu comes out in the Ikin divination, the diviner should be asked if there is a deceased member in the family who has not yet been granted a final burial. He should also be asked if there is a woman in the family who has no children, if the man has a wife without children, he should be told that the woman will surely leave him because the marriage was not authorized by her Guardian Angel.

When Okana Meyi goes out in divination, the fortune teller must be told that he has a tall and strong enemy who goes in search of his downfall. To overcome the problems created by it, he must be told that he must sacrifice Eshu with a goat, a rooster, an ax, and a machete.

When this Oddun of Ifa comes out in divination, if it is Iré, normally she will be told that her mother has just made sacrifice for him or her. And if this Odu has been manifested by Osobo, the person should be advised; tell the mother to make sacrifice for him or her against imminent danger of death.

Ifa says in divination for a person who was planning for a new position, he should be told that success is awaiting him, but that death stands between him and the achievement of success. Therefore he must make a sacrifice to The Witches and Eshu in order to remove the danger of death from his path. So that you are never short of material things and especially food, you must sacrifice two pigeons, two rats and two fish to Eshu.

If the person is going to travel, they must sacrifice a goat to Eshu and two dogs, a pig to Ifá, a club, sixteen packages of cold corn bread and beans, to avoid losing their lives when they enter a forest.

When the Odu Okana Meyi appears in Igbodun, the initiate must be advised that to obtain a long life he must sacrifice a goat to Eshu, pray for his head with a rooster and kola nuts; Give Ogún a rooster, a turtle, a gourd of wine and a roasted sweet potato; To Shango a rooster, bitter kolá nuts and wine, as they can be the victim of a storm, thunder or lightning.

Okana Meyi in the Oracle of Ifa predicts that the person must become fond of farming, as he will be successful in agriculture, he will be a landowner or a farmer, for which he must offer in sacrifice a white robe with many pockets filled with kolá nuts, cleaning himself with a chicken and using a staff, collecting materials from the top of two hills close to each other, as well as from two eaves on the roof of his house, all these materials will be used to summon Eshu.

For the person to receive an important title or position, he must sacrifice a goat to Eshu, a goat to Ifá, a rabbit to the Witches and a rooster to honor his head.

  • Note: For the beef it was made rich, and with the beans it was made ekru, olele, ekru-aro, so that Eshu would eat in the form of a dog, because the boa was going to eat it. For this Ifá you should not cook with charcoal, because here humans learned to cook with mineral fuel.

Pataki of the sign of Ifa Okana Meyi:

Ogún paid double his Ifá.

One day Eshu went to Orúnmila's house to do him a favor of doing Ifa, and Orúnmila asked him if he had the money to do it, Eshu answered him no. Then Orúnmila replied that if he had no money he could not do Ifá, then Eshu jumped and reached the ceiling, breaking his head and for this reason shed a lot of blood. Then Orúnmila's wife, seeing this, told him: "Now justice has to come and they are going to arrest us."

Eshu registered him and said: "In your house there are many chickens and these at night they perch." Ogun replied: You are a liar, because you knew that. Eshu said to him: Well, all right, wait; This morning your mom scolded you because you touched her from behind and her husband saw her. Then Ogun said to him: That is true, because you weren't there. Ogun left.

When Ogún left, Eshu went to Orúnmila's house and told him that Ogún would come to do Ifa for him, that he had asked him how much it cost him and he had told him that a cart of money, and that is how Ogún paid double his Ifá.
