American Ifa Fa Afa (501c3) – 13th Annual Ifa in American/USA reading for 2022 was done Tuesday, December 21st, 2020 @ 1pm in the State of Florida at Ile Ikoko Ata, for the total United States, regions, and territories followers.
Wars on viruses. Wars on injustice. Wars against racism, books and religions. Ifa advises us to make offering and ebos for protection. This is a strong and powerful odu sign going into 2022 after two years of viruses, racism, injustice, and abuse against women and children. This odu is known to be one of the most powerful odu after the mejiis in the diaspora. In 2022, mental sickness will rise along with being mistaken for someone else. Warriors are the soldiers against violence and the key to opening doors of opportunity. People need to stop fabricating information and spreading lies. We must discredit conspiracies that cause arguments which can lead to death. Love and hug your elders and show appreciation. Resolve differences and find peace in your family. No matter how powerful, strong, or smart you think you are; there are others in the world who are just as powerful, strong and smart. Remember, you can still be defeat by the weakest person. Our health is more valuable than gold and respect is more valuable than love. Remember that a secret that is told between two people is no longer a secret – loose lips sink ships. Isese (primordial supportive progenitors) is important towards understand the correlation between people and orisas. We must have APPLIED FAITH and give respect to the orisa and Ifa. This year with the proper ebo for the ebo, we will defeat our problems and prosper financially and have long lives. Read the rest of the reading for the year.
May Olodumare bless us all.
