Meet Babalawo in Nigeria, Karimu Adeyemi, as he talks about money ritual.

My name is Baba Karimu Adeyemi. People know me as a priest. I live in Ondo State, precisely in a town in Ore, Akinfolarin town. I want to talk about money ritual. Money ritual exists - the real one. Because when one is in the path of Isese, such person should know that there is what is called money ritual, but there are different kinds of money ritual. Some people are money ritualists who have spirits that bring money to them. What does money ritual really means? Money ritual means when someone find means of getting rich spiritually. Before we can say someone did money ritual, there are different ways. If it is not spiritual means of getting rich, we can't call it money ritual, and there are many ways to do it. Some people make use of spirits to get rich, some make use of herbs and roots to get rich, some make use of secret means to get rich. All of these are under the category of money of ritual.

When one is initiated into Ifa, it is a source of getting rich, because some people don't really know the meaning of money ritual. Not only those who make use of human are categorized under money ritualists. Some people make use of natural things and combine to perform money ritual. This is equally under money ritual. There is what we call Osole which is also categorized under money ritual. Ifa initiation equally means money ritual but what is not allowed is to make use of humans. Nowadays, there is what is called Yahoo Plus, it is also under the category of money ritual. All these means are smartness. Some through sex. To get rich, it's a smartness. Some of these things have been used in the body to make love, it's also under money ritual. Making use of another person's destiny is what is not allowed in our path. But there is money ritual. Our ancestors made use of animals, it is also called money ritual. There is what we call "Osole" - it is part of money ritual. We call another one "Dajo" - it is part of money ritual. If you are initiated into Ifa, it is part of money ritual.

The "Dajo" I said is like... We use an animal called "Eran Emi" (Eran Emi looks like "Squirrel") to prepare "Dajo." When this job is done, human eye mustn't see it, we prepare it inside the cap. This is part of the ritual means to get rich as it doesn't involve human sacrifice. We use animals such as "Eran Emi" to prepare this type of money ritual. Dajo means whatever you contribute would be returned to you. It is called Dajo - it is part of money ritual. Likewise, Osole is prepared with animals - nothing like human sacrifice. It is part of money rituals. There are money rituals which don't involve human sacrifice. There is a misconception that money ritual is all about making use of human parts - it is not correct at all. We, the righteous Ifa Priests go against using human for money rituals. This is because we believe that being initiated into ifa is part of money ritual and a source of wealth itself. Whoever is initiated into Ifa is automatically rich. Whoever is initiated has protected himself or herself from poverty.

There are so many path in the line of money ritual. Some would say they use what is called Osanyin. Even though you can't find Osanyin anymore, in the time of our ancestors, they made use of Osanyin to talk to them. Any Osanyin you find now is fake. If anyone do evil with Ifa, Ifa would end such person's life at the end. We don't lie with Ifa and we don't betray with Ifa, Ifa is part of money ritual and this is why we don't reject the concept of money ritual called Ogun Owo. Money ritual is real with the use of animals and herbs. Dajo and Osole are money rituals. Whoever is working and do not care about means of surviving, such a person will just be working hard, means of surviving is very important. Money ritual is real apart from making use of human as sacrifice in our land.

Money Ritual exists as I earlier said. What is not right is to use human for sacrifice. This is because, whoever uses human for sacrifice, the end result is bad. The spirit of the victim would revenge. This is one of the reasons why it's bad. As much as the person who used someone for money rituals lives, the victim would end up dealing with him or her. So human sacrifice for money is bad. Even though you use human part of the body for money ritual, it has repercussion. Whatever sickness the victim has would end up infecting the person who used such a person's part of the body. This is another reason why using human part of the body for money ritual is bad. It is not even good to hurt one fellow human being. What is proper is to make use of herbs, animals and other local materials for money rituals. With them, the money ritual would be successful and the person would live long. This is one of the reasons why the youth of nowadays don't live long anymore, because they use human part for sacrifice. Some would say yahoo plus, as we do watch them online, the end result is bad.

But whoever is a priest like me and making use of human for sacrifice - such a priest would perish. Because Ifa is enough to get one rich as Ifa is a money ritual. Ifa Orunmila is like a ladder to success. Whoever is initiated into Ifa has climbed the ladder of success, as Ifa says. Some ignorant people would say what is Ifa, such a person knows nothing. We don't use human for sacrifice, what we use is animals. If we use animals and other local materials as offerings to Ifa, meaning we have done money ritual. Then the door of success would open. Ifa ensures you are successful. As for myself, I have no other hope than this Ifa, and it's working for me. Whoever is initiated into Ifa and complains it's not working, it means the initiation is not real. So Ifa, herbs, roots and animals are the legitimate means for money rituals as human sacrifice is not a good thing.

If you have any question for me on this topic, I can explain better if you ask me. This is Ikin Ifa Orunmila - on the right and left hand side. This one I'm holding is called sacrifice bowl. (Two types: one for Esu and one for the elders). These are what we use as sacrifice to Ifa. This is kola nut - we use it to plead with the death and sickness to save our lives.

Some people are asking why we Babalawos don't perform Money Rituals for ourselves... People don't understand a lot of things compare to what they understand. We elders are endowed with wisdom which many people don't understand. The reason is this... As for me, our elders use to say Ifa is up to charms. If you are initiated into Ifa and this is the reason why we are calling the attention of the youth of nowadays that they should have Ifa Orunmila. If you have Ifa and I do Awure for you which is also part of the means of getting rich, it is certain that after about 6 months time to come, you will come back to show appreciation. This is a means of getting rich which I also use for myself. What we reject is to use any part of human body for money rituals, Ifa goes against it as it is a taboo in Ifa. Ifa reject whatever is too difficult. This is what a lot of people don't understand, when they are initiated into Ifa and they later go for money ritual with human part. These are what Ifa do not like.

Whatever Ifa rejects becomes a problem for any Babalawo who do them. Even though you are not a Babalawo, you should not make use of any human part of the body for money, because you do not know the health background of such a victim. If one use such a person for money, then the health challenge of the victim goes to whoever use him or her for money. For this reason, it is not good to use your fellow for money rituals. As I have been saying, it is good to be initiated into Ifa. As for me, what I use are soft spirituality that align with my destiny. So it is good to make inquiries on the spirituality that align with your destiny in order to be successful. Whoever don't consult his or her destiny would go astray.

Just as you all know me, I am Baba Karimu Adeyemi. The Priest located in Ondo State, in a town called Ore, Akintola Akinfolarin to be precise. I talked about Ifa the last time. Ifa Initiation. Which I said that Ifa Initiation is very good. Because this Ifa initiation is a way to escape from family problems or from our enemies, neighbors, and gossipers. This Ifa initiation is very good, it is part of what we can call a source of wealth, just as I said previously. Why I said it is a source of wealth is this... Keep listening to me... The reason is that whoever is initiated into Ifa can no longer be wretched. I told you previously that whoever worships an Orisha gets the favor of such an Orisha. The meaning is that, whoever is initiated into Ifa and always worships Ifa properly, would get the favor of Ifa as a Babalawo. Even though you are initiated into Ifa but not practicing, you automatically become a Babalawo. Such a person would therefore get the backing of Ifa as long as it's taken care of. While taking care of Ifa, we offer sacrifices. Our ancestors used to say, sacrifices are more than charms.

Whoever has Ifa at home worships the witches and wizards. Because wherever the witches and wizards are eating from, it is certain that the person's way would always open. Why I said Ifa initiation is a source of wealth is because as long as you take care of your Ifa, you can't be broke. Whoever is initiated into Ifa would always offer sacrifices to the Orishas because they are all under Ifa. And whoever is worshipping all these Orishas would get whatever he or she want. Money, wealth. There won't be tribulations and he or she would be having promotions at work. Whoever is promoted at work is like doing a money ritual. Whoever is initiated into Ifa and does take care of it won't experience any hardship in his or her job. Whoever is initiated into Ifa can't be wretched, except he or she lie with Ifa. Some would say, they are initiated into Ifa but always go broke. It is possible to be initiated into Ifa and go broke. Why?

This is one of the reasons... Before one is initiated into Ifa, such a person must investigate who to initiate him or her in order for the initiation to be effective. If this is not done, it is possible for such a person not to get the favor of Ifa. One has to investigate who to initiate one into Ifa for it to be effective. If not, such an initiation won't be effective. This could be the reason why some people are saying Ifa Initiation is not a means of money ritual. Because whoever is initiated into Ifa and within 6 months, the person didn't see some changes in his or her... Such a person would say Ifa Initiation is not a means of money ritual. If the initiation is properly done by a practicing Babalawo, it would be effective. It is a source of wealth. As Ifa Irete Meji says that Ifa is a tree of wealth to be climbed for success. This is why we say that Ifa initiation is a means of wealth, success, and good wellbeing.

Ifa initiation is very good. Because I accepted Ifa and I'm still practicing up till today. I am successful. I thank God. I accepted to deliver people, I accepted Ifa and I have done so many good things with it, I trained my children with it, I accepted Ifa with the truth. Ifa Initiation is a means of wealth and getting money. As I said previously, because some people didn't understand why I said Ifa initiation is a means of money ritual. Now I have explained myself. For those who do not understand to understand me better. Ifa Initiation is good, it is a means of making money, wealth, and breakthrough. It is money rituals once again.

Because our ancestors call Ifa ikin. Whereas Ikin does not lack money in the Ojigbomekun's market. Whoever is initiated into Ifa has gone shopping at Ojigbomekun's market. Whoever is confused with my explanation can give me a call. Ifa initiation is the source of wealth. Whoever is confused with my explanation can give me a call for further explanations. Because Ifa initiation gives long life and can make one rich without committing criminal aspect of money ritual which can end life. Our ancestors ensured they did proper Ifa consultation before they do things in the olden days. This is what we have neglected and that is why things are bad nowadays. Let us accept Ifa for long life and wealth. This is what I share with those who do not understand Ifa religion better. Ifa initiation is good because it blesses one's job. Whoever is blessed has everything. Because no one would be able to spoil such a person's work. Ifa would always protect such a person from family curses. Some people are cursed. We use Ifa to erase family curses with sacrifices as it was during the days of our ancestors. May God answers our prayers. Ifa initiation is very good.
