Eepa Ifa ooo
For any priests or priestess that want to get well everyday for him/herself so he/she can be able to even help people that come for help better than before , you have to keep doing research and learning.
As you know I’m back home in Nigeria, I have diverted my attention as usual to getting better in the part that my ori has chosen for me.
In my quest to upgrade spiritually, I was with my babalosha(my Obatala godfather) . Baba was able to share more new understanding from working with Obatala and results.
Contrary to many people belive, when blood is given to Obatala, we don’t put it straight on Obatala stones or other shrine items other than irin (the elephant bone that are sacred to Obatala)
It’s on irin that blood will be put on in a separate plate , then you put palm oil as well, as ero.
Yes palm oil is Obatala taboo but when You spilled blood palm oil has to come to calm the energy, you just have to clean the irin well before putting it back in Obatala pot and palm oil can’t touch the cowrie shells in the Obatala pot , yes you can put gin on Obatala but no palm wine .
according to Ifa…
T’Awo ni epo
Difa fun orunmila baba o s’ebo omo re tan l’orun
Alade wa rubo omo tie tan l’orun
T’Awo Lepo, T’ogberi l’eje
The awo are the one with palm oil
The novice are the one with blood
Cast Ifa for orunmila when orunmila did ebo for his children in heaven
The crown owner has done ebo for children
The palm oil is for awo
The blood is for the novice
The mesasage here is clear , just like when you need postive and negative to make a power current. You can’t make current with just negative that is shocking without postive current that will neautealize it to power up your electrical devices .
When you spill blood , you definitely need palm oil to balance it irrespective of the situation.
When you give blood and you don’t give palm on top of shrine , it’s good but not enough.
Or you can just take a little touch of it to touch your pot if you know you can not Balance it out for some reasons.
Blood without palm oil is hardship .
Back to the point , according to baba, giving offering of snails and Shea Butter and other Obatala food items that prepared in Obatala sacred way are bringing more postive results than giving blood to Orisha obatala of white robe ..
Eepa osha …
Obatala will safe us and won’t kill us . Ase
