The reading for the year 2021 was cast on December 31, 2020, in the Ofun’Di Temple of Chief Awodele Ifayemi, the Atunwase Awo of Ilobuland, Osun State Nigeria located in El Paso, Texas.

The guidance for this year is provided by the Sacred Odu Ogunda Ogbe – know as Ogundabede – and it appeared in a state of Ire indicating Ajé, Iṣẹ́gun, and Abi-l’ònà. Also appearing where the Odus Ogbe Osa and Otura Ogbe in that order.

The Message of Ogunda Ogbe For the United States Of America

Stern in all its pronounce­ments, this Odu is the birthplace of both treason and infidelity. The Nation will soon experience these things. Olofin, Obatala and Ogun dominate the energies of this Odu.

Note: a commitment to Ifá and to its principles will save our Nation from the dark paths that its leadership has taken, opening new roads that previ­ously were no more than mere hopes and dreams for its citizens.  It may take some time before this happens but continuous work and perseverance will be rewarded by the Orishas.

Ifá says that because of our incumbent President’s infidelity, his grave has been dug; he is marked as having a tendency to get involved with the wrong people, and this behavior must end.

There is anger in our nation’s home. False love permeates life. He (President) says he loves others, but he is lying; others say that they love him, but in truth they do not care about him. Tears are being shed now for the anger and arrogance that this person brings.

The incumbent President should consider packing a suitcase when he goes home; his spouse wants him to move out, and he should leave immediately. His wife will discover the abuse of which he is capable. She should leave that very night.

Message of Ogunda Ogbe For The People Of the Unites States Of America

Ogundabede speaks of the need to always tell the truth and avoid lying and self-deception. Honesty and integrity are prevalent energies of this odu.

One must avoid feelings or thoughts of jealousy.

Jealousy is a result of not being in tune with Nature’s truth; that we live in an abundant universe in which there is enough for everyone.

This Odu speaks strongly regarding Ori.

Ebo to one’s Ori ensures ire. So the most important message of this odu is that the person must act according to Ifa ethics at all times, which brings blessings through the person’s Ori.

This brings us back to the metaphysical principle of Ogundabede; removing obstacles leads to an open road.

Ogun is the orisa we turn to to remove obstacles, but in Ogundabede we see what that really means. It isn’t so much about removing physical obstacles; It’s about obstacles to our spiritual growth.

Dishonesty, jealousy, etc. are obstacles that have to do with ego.

It is Ogun who will remove the obstacles to self-reflection and the courage to admit our faults and expand our consciousness of self and world. When we do this difficult work we are reborn with a new consciousness, a new outlook and a larger commitment to iwa pele which brings our Ori in alignment with our Iponri which in turn allows Ire – blessings – to be released in Orun. That is why Ori is the central character here with Ogun as the orisa clearing the way and Obatala as the source of consciousness and ethical behavior.
