Why Is Iwa So Important According To IFA Culture?

What Does the word character mean? According to the dictionary the definition in English is the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.


What Is Iwa Pele?


According to our ancient ancestors, elders in IFA Tradition and Culture. Iwa means Character which is connected strongly to our Ori (Head) Higher inner subconscious mind head.

In the Yoruba IFA Tradition Iwa pele is good character that guides one in this lifetime, the Yoruba Ifa culture teaches people and strongly believes it is good character that guides one to success in life. Iwa-Pele good character will be that thing that will even protect man/woman when they are in danger. Orisa lo se laa ni feere It is Obatala who made pawpaw like trumpet (name of an Ifa priest) O se enu re dududu He made the mouth of the trumpet systematically (name of an Ifa priest) Komo araye o le maa ri n fon For all humans to use for rhythm (name of an Ifa priest) Difa fun Orunmila The made Ifa reading for Orunmila Baba n lo ree gbe Iwa niyawo He wanted to marry Iwa (character) Ebo ni woni ko wa se Ebo was prescribed for him In the holy Odu Ogbe-otura (ogbe-alara) tells the story of when Orunmila was going to get married to a woman named Iwa (character).Orunmila was told by the above Babalawo that he need to make ebo (sacrifice} and make sure he is contempt and always take care of her i.e Iwa (character) so Orunmila made ebo and he went ahead to marry Iwa (Character). When the new wife came into Orunmila's household everything started going well for him, he is very happy cause he was having success upon success. So it got to point when Orunmila started giving his wife(Iwa) some troubles at home, sometimes he complain on the meal she cooked, the next day he will complain on the compound.


Every day he (Orunmila) gives his wife (iwa) one problem or the other. Orunmila has totally forgotten what the Babalawo (Ifa priests) told him. One day Iwa (Character)became sick and tired of Orunmila's complain and troubles, so she decided to pack and go. After she left things started going from bad to worse for Orunmila he didn't noticed until he found out he was virtually left with nothing. So he went for Ifa divination and his babalawos (Ifa priests) told him that he has chased someone away from his life he needs to go and beg the person to come back to his life before everything will come back to normal for him. So after making ebo (sacrifice) Orunmila start the journey in search of his wife that packed out. People told him that they heard she went to king Alara, so Orunmila travelled to Aramoko and he went to the palace and asked the king if he has seen his wife or not? the King said she has come to the palace he told her he cannot harbor her because Orunmila is his close friend and he is the one that helped him spiritually and made him king, he now gave Orunmila a clue that he heard she went to Ijero. When Orunmila got to the town King Ajero told Orunmila the same thing King Alara said, it was King Ajero that gave Orunmila another clue that it seems she is on her way to King Owa-rangun-aga's palace. Orunmila quickly continues his journey, on getting there he finds his wife and he told the king all that happened. They pity Orunmila and helped him plead to his wife to follow him back home and she agreed. Henceforth, Orunmila says whoever has all blessings in life and does have Iwa (good character) all the blessings is another man's blessing.


How does the system of IFA help my behaviour?


In the holy Odu Ogbeyonu IFA shows that patience is the father and mother of ALL good things in this life. Much patience and tolerance is required to learn or obtain good behaviour, we should learn, practice not to be so quick to lose our temper and jump to conclusions or be too hot headed. In the teachings of IFA we practice to be patient and think before we react or speak. Much ebos and spiritual work needs to be done and head Ori work ( spiritual surgery) must be done in order for a person to learn or practice good behaviour.

How do I know If I need help with my character?


Deep down you know. For example, If you are hot tempered, easily angered, argumentative, provocative , jump to conclusions, speak or act on impulse, extremely unbalanced with your behaviour these are some indication that there are personality issues. Although you may have personal traits of bad behaviour it may also come from your ancestral blood lineage and to know more you should further investigate and have a ancestral roots reading consultation to look more further into your ancestors.



Will practicing IFA help my behaviour improve.
