We encourage our community to continue to take all medical and physical precautions in terms of social distancing, and for this reason, our organization will only do Web-based Video Conference Divination as opposed to "in-person" to avoid Community spread of this terrible virus.
In this time of Pandemic, Ifá-Òrìsà followers call on Babaluaye/Soponna/Asojuano/Sakpata to protect the world and curb the effects of this Covid-19/Corona Virus. Obaluaye is an Òrìsà strongly associated with infectious disease and healing. The name Babalú-Ayé translates as “Father, lord of the Earth” and points to the authority this Òrìsà exercises on all things earthly, including the body, wealth, and physical possessions.
In West Africa, he was strongly associated with epidemics of smallpox, leprosy, influenza and so on. Although strongly associated with illness and disease, Babalú-Ayé is also the spirit that cures these ailments. Both feared and loved, Babalú-Ayé is sometimes referred to as the “Wrath of the supreme God” because he punishes people for their transgressions. People hold Babalú-Ayé in great respect and avoid calling his actual name, because they do not wish to invoke epidemics. His worship is widely associated with the Earth itself, and his shrines are often separated from commonly travelled areas. His ritual tools include a ritual broom for purification, a covered terra-cotta vessel, and abundant cowry shells. Usually considered hobbled by disease.
