What Does Initiation Mean?

The Oxford dictionary defines initiation as act of admitting someone into a secret or obscure society or group typically with ritual.

The dictionary meaning of initiation is the act of admitting someone into certain society or group usually with certain rites or ritual, ceremonies, ordeals, or instruction with wish one is made a member of a sect or society or is invested with particular function or status. The term initiation itself is derived from the Latin phrase “in itiare" which means to go inwards. It is the path, the path that an individual travels to the interior self. It is the entrance to a new state of consciousness, which is not normally retrograded, that is why we must differentiate between ceremony and initiation and understand that it is not the same.

How Will IFA Divination Help Me? Through the Ifá Initiation process (Itefa) we will know the Odu that gives birth to us on earth and through "its orientations, sacrifices, medicines, taboo, behaviours etc. that we must put into practice" and in this way we will give a turn in positive sense to our life. Initiation is an intense internal process and only those who are very serious about knowing their purpose and why they are here on earth will follow through the process. IFA initiation will change and upgrade your Ori and bering out the better version of you and reinforce your purpose, it also reveals your life odu that covers your past , present and future.

-It brings direct connection to Orunmila and OLODUMARE

-It serves as a compass to steer through the ocean called life. -It is instructive to keep in mind that the person who conducts Tefa for you during the ceremony is your Olúwo and any other person who trains you or teaches is your Baba-Ifá. Omo-Awo must honour his/her Baba-Ifá and his/her Olúwo even when the students are older than the teachers.

-IFA Initiation is about becoming a changed person both in character and wisdom. Lack of positive character transformation after the initiation process on the part of the initiate who has undergone Itelodu is deemed to be a character transformation failure.

After Ifá initiation Odu Ifá teaches us that an initiate should re-initiate him/herself by cultivating good habits; he or she should try to seek knowledge, be more prudent and thoughtful than ever.

-Ifá initiation is meant to bring comfort to the initiate, not hardship, so an Ifá initiate must learn how to avoid all taboo and social vices. That is when the initiate can be said to have a spiritual rebirth or as re-initiate himself or herself in terms of character and values.
