Why do the Orisa want the blood of animal?

The Orisa are not only partaking in the blood of the animal they are also partaking in the vital organs of the body which is part of the ase of the animal. They are partaking in the meat of the animal. The meat is the substance. It is important to note that when an ebo eje is performed that all members present take a little of the offerings being giving to the Orisa such as of the animal, sip of water, honey, palmoil, gin, salt and any other condiments that the Orisa request for the ebo ritual, this is what makes ebo expectable. The ritual meat is cooked and shared among family and friends. This meat is prayed over and is considered to be a blessing amongst the community.

There is an Ifa verse in the Odu Owonrin meji that says not only should the ancestors and the Orisa partake of the ebo, but the whole community should take part in eating the ebo this is what brings harmony, balance, and love to the community, the act of sharing and showing gratitude to one another this is the power of ebo. Not all animal sacrifice requires the blood of the animal to be given to the Orisa, some animal sacrifice has to be giving to the client to take good care of meaning after the ebo is complete. The client May have to take the animal home and take care of it. Some animal sacrifice has to be given to the diviner to take care of, some animal sacrifice has to be released to certain parts of nature.

Cool water (omi tutu), honey (oyin),

gin (oti). Each one of these condiments are agents

that supports the ebo, each condiments has its roll that it plays in the ebo ritual.

Why do I have to pay or give a donation for my ebo?

Paying for your ebo is part of the ebo (sacrifice). There is a spiritual

side for paying for ebo as well as the physical side. We have to understand

that money is an energy, it is an Orisa (Aje).

The amount of money determined for

an ebo is confirmed by Ifa, or the IFA Priest, this is what makes things honest and the client doesn't have to feel like they are being taking advantage of.

In addition, during the ebo ritual, the amount of money determined by Ifa is part of the ritual, it is placed on the divining tray (Opon Ifa) and when the priest begins to chant the various verses of the Odu Ifa, the money is moved around in a circular motion and then is placed on certain occasions on the clients Ori (head) this is done throughout the whole process. The money is an important part of the materials, and when the ebo is complete the spiritual essence of the money is used to pay the various toll energy at the gates of heaven. When we travel to certain cities and states, there are toll men & women at the gate that have to be paid before you can enter into that city.

Now the same concept applies when the ebo is being taking to it's destination, there is a toll fee that has to be paid alongside an Orisa that is accompanying that particular ebo ritual they have to pay the toll men, in order to get to the next destination so, the money that you pay for ebo is not only being used for the Priest’ hard work and labor or for his/her personal use, it has very important spiritual use. It is important to realize that by coming to the Priest and Ifa to help solve or change your circumstances it requires patience on the client’ part as for the Priest it requires great spiritual strength and concentration which involves time , prayer and energy. The Priests are placing their life at risk to help shift positive changes to help a person circumstance. The Priest may have to do some form of personal ebo or spiritual work to remove any negative impact coming from the client or Devotee’ experience in order for the experience not to affect the Priest’ life,family, or household.
