The Ifa divination process is an enlightened experience, this is a time when Ifa, the Ifa priest (Babalawo or Iyanifa) and the client is in the sacred space of Ifa, the Ifa priest is the medium between Ifa and the client. During the divination session the Ifa priest will either use a divining chain called Opele or the Ifa priest may use sixteen palm nuts called Ikin Ifa, these tools are used based on the client’s situation​ The Ifa priest will pour libation to pay homage to Esu Elegbara, the ancestors, Ifa and Orunmila and pray for the success of the client, then the Ifa priest will touch the head of the client and cast the divination tools to interpret the signs that have been revealed.
