What is IFA Divination?

IFÁ is one of the sacred oral texts of the Yoruba people of West Africa (parts of present-day Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso). This ancient corpus contains the history, cosmology, worldview, linguistic heritage, medical tradition and ethical legacy of the Yoruba people and has been preserved orally through poetic form.

Ifa Divination imageODÙ IFÁ which is our sacred oracle, is organized into 256 distinct sections: 16 major ODÙ and 240 minor ODÙ - each containing an innumerable quantity of verses. Traditionally, ODÙ are memorized and transmitted orally by a cadre of priests known as Babalawo, who reference the text during divination in order to provide guidance to people seeking advice and resolve for personal issues. The Babalawo uses the IFA divination system to make a spiritual inquiry into one's akashic record to see how a problem or situation is best resolved. It is means of communication between the natural and supernatural worlds that is used as a guide to ones destiny.
