IFÁ SAYS: IF YOU ARE NOT HEALED YOU WILL STRUGGLE TO ENJOY THE BLESSINGS OF ORÍ.
Healing according to IFÁ is when we are free from attachment or anything that will keep us trapped in this material world~OGBÈ Átẹ̀.
As spiritual beings, we are meant to enjoy the blessings of ORÍ with ease, not struggle. So when you realize that you are struggling to enjoy the blessings of ORÍ, it means that something needs to be worked on within you. On this IFÁ says:
“The disease in the Rat’s body that it thought has finished, has not finished yet. It is still there, and it is preventing him from enjoying the blessings of his ORÍ”~ Òsá Logbè(158th chapter of IFÁ).
The verse goes thus:
Òrúnmìlà said, it’s not finished yet!
I replied: Master, it is finished!
Òrúnmìlà said, if it has finished, then why is the rat still struggling to enjoy the blessings of his ORÍ?
Òrúnmìlà said: The disease in the Rat’s body, that it thought has finished, has not finished yet. It is still there, and it is preventing him from enjoying the blessings of his ORÍ”.
But the question is: What are these diseases?
IFÁ says, they are the unhealthy habits that we embody or express daily. They are unhealthy energies or habits that we attach ourselves to. If we are not completely healed from these habits, we will always struggle to enjoy our Birthrights. No wonder Ifá Says: “Ogbè! Come and Surrender in order to gain peace/freedom”.
Translation: Ogbè wá tẹ̀ kí ara kólè rọ̀ ẹ.
It also says: It is lack of divine understanding that makes one misbehave. Ogbè! After you have surrendered, you cannot snatch what doesn’t belong to you, you cannot see black and call it white, you cannot jump inside the pool if you don’t see its depth, you cannot backbite, gossip, deceive others, you cannot waste resources, you cannot eat more than your stomach can carry, you cannot hate others, you cannot compete, you cannot underestimate others… ~Ogbè Átẹ̀(the 29th chapter of IFÁ).
The above are what IFÁ considered as unhealthy habits. When we attach ourselves to such habits we will be trapped in this material world and we will struggle to enjoy our Birthrights. But when we detach from such habits, and embody ORÍ, it means we are healed, we are free and we will enjoy our Birthrights with ease.
