Esu, Baba don’t fight me fight others!
This Iwure below for Esu Òdàrà demonstrates not only the powerful attribute to make all things manifest but the unique power to change the “gourd of evil to the gourd of good fortune”.
It is the incidence of many instances, this appears to be what we all want in life? Yet, to a mother or even a friend but just someone who loves others wants those we love away from danger or harm.
This prayer for Irunmole Esu Òdàrà provides a blueprint and detail of what Eshu promises us every day for committing the act of sacrifice-Ebo. It also provides a detail assessment of what happens when we hear and receive information through the processes of Divination-Dafa and decide not to commit to the prescribed sacrifice.
This prayer also indicates that it is time for each and everyone of us to change how we think about sacrifice; about committing to doing the prescribed sacrifice not only what is recommended to us in order resolve the problems we came to solve through to our Orisa-deities but what is also recommended in our behaviors, thus correcting our personalities.
Ifa challenges us to change our type of collapsed immobility in terms of when we commit a sacrifice but not the change in behaviors which may in times draw our negatives or problems to us.
We also need to take accountability and be responsible for the mindset that says that we can change the outcome by doing nothing. When going to have a reading or divination are we bringing our faith and belief to the dafa or are we treating IFA and Orisa like a Tarot card gypsies in the wake of giving healing information on one’s life.
During our quest to understand the healing powers of Ifa’s wisdom we miss greater aspects of Olodumare’s creation by not opening ourselves to understanding the knowledge we receive in our studies in Orisa Esin Ibile.
When we narrowly view the power and essence of Olodumare-God Almighty in our studies; we miss the opportunity to see the miraculous changes in our lives brought by sacrifice. We certainly do ourselves and our family is a disservice. We, therefore enact the wrath or the removal of our protective barrier by refusing to adhere to the advice of IFA or Orisa by not doing the prescribed ebo.
In opposition to the above analogy, when we actually do our prescribed ebo and this is inclusive of our changed behaviors and personalities;we are guaranteed the miracles of IFA and the divine power of Esu.

Cast Ifa for Esu Odara
Esu Odara that has no one to annihilate
He would annihilate himself
Esu please do not annihilate me
Do not endanger my friends too
But go to the house of those who hates me
To the house of my enemies
To the house of those who heard about the sacrifice but refused to offer it
To the house of detractors
Ifa says the situation has changed
I too say its time to change our concept of beliefs
Esu please change the orientation of the gourd of evil
And point the gourd of good fortune to me and my friends
Therefore who will push my good fortunes to me
Esu Odara would push my good fortunes towards me
