      Thumbs up Yoruba Prayer to Spiritual Intuition


      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
      The Yoruba encourage one another to pray their spiritual intuition or personal consciousness every morning upon waking, and before speaking to anyone or beginning your day. (1) To impress upon your spirit and intellect what you would like to accomplish (2) To retain a link w/ the divine during the day. (3) To ask for inspiration and support in being successful, ethical and productive.


      Here is a very simple prayer which can be done by anyone. there are many prayers to the ori. once you find one that speaks directly to YOUR spirit it should begin to "live" a bit more in you and you will derive messages and/or feelings of peace. but it must be practiced consistently.

      You should say it in Yoruba first. English second. If you only have time to say it one way UNRUSHED, say it in Yoruba. You want to tap into the thousands upon thousands of Ancestors who have said the words before you for thousands of years. You want access to that flow of energy, hope, purpose, intent and peace!

      Iwure to Ori for Good Luck
      (Luck can/should be replaced with the concept of Balance/Alignment)
      from Otura Ogbe (Otura Ori-ire)

      Yoruba
      Ka ji ni kutukutu
      Ka mu ohun ipin ko’pin
      d'Ifa fun Olomo-ajiba’re-pade
      Emi ni mo ji ni kutukutu ti mo f’ohun ipin ko’pin
      Emi ni mo ba ire pade l’ola

      English
      To wake up early morning
      And give destiny its due
      Divine for the person that will met-with-luck
      It is me that gives destiny its due on my waking in the morning
      Therefore, it is me that will met with luck today and tomorrow (i.e. all my life)

      Another Prayer to Ori (Your Spiritual Consciousness)

      "ORI lo nda eni
      Esi ondaye ORISA lo npa eni da
      O npa ORISA da
      ORISA lo pa nida
      Bi isu won sun
      Aye ma pa temi da
      Ki ORI mi ma se ORI
      Ki ORI mi ma gba abodi"


      "ORI is the creator of all things
      ORI is the one that makes everything happen, before life happens
      He is the ORISA that can change man
      No one can change the ORISA
      ORISA that changes the life of man with baked yam
      AYE*, don´t change my fate
      For my ORI not letting people disrespect me
      That my ORI don´t let me be disrespected by none
      My ORI, don´t accept evil."
      (* AYE joint of the forces of good and evil)

      I really appreciate you taking the time to post these two quick and simple prayers to the Ori. Ashe Iyawo Olokun! (I think I said that right, as I'm still learning;-)

      thanks. i hope they come in handy. i will post more in later. the good point is to find one or two that click over time, that speak directly to your Spirit. or to be more plain, you want to find those that change your consciousness and actually make you feel the divine within you. it takes a while and you gotta use them pretty frequently to get there. but its like getting acquainted w/ a new court surface or trying out a new skin on your drum, it takes some getting used to, then its on! lol

      remember its important for your Spirit that you read the Yoruba version and eventually commit it to memory. dont rush. dont beat yourself. dont fret over how well you pronouce it. just make a sincere attempt. the sounds that are emitted from certain words or combination of words is what holds the greatest power. you want to access that over time, and you want to give yourself enough time to get there. now your Mind may prefer english, but trust me, your Spirit will be reprogramming the mind through these oriki. (remember you are spiritually and psychologically reconditioning yourself!)

      Thank you for posting this. How and why is it vital for one to worship their ori?

      When you worship your Ori, you are worshipping the divinity within yourself. You are in fact worshipping you! Talk about positive reinforcement.

      Worshipping the Ori brings about mental clarity, visions/prophecy, clear conscious, heightened sense of "right/wrong" for your own destiny, peacefulness, decisiveness etc.

      Worshipping your Ori is worshipping the aspect of the Creator that exists within you. In fact the Ori is considered a literal Divinity and the most important Divinity, even before the Creator, because it is located within you.

      Most BlackCellent thread...i've spoken with Babalawo in Nigeria who are often distraught with how de-emphasized one's own Ori is generally here in the western hemisphere...this is a good resource for those interested...stay BlackNificent!!!

      I know this is an old thread but I want to thank you, IfasehunReincarnated, for these prayers to the ori.

      The worship of the ori is not something that is shared much anymore. I have asked some elders about it and have not received any instruction on how to connect with my ori.

      I have a question about the ori and its connection to Osun (not Oshun, but Osun, the protector of the ori). How should one properly work with Osun? Must one work with Osun in order to better connect with the ori?
