Ifa Divination

Post by Rowan » Wed Feb 03, 2010 9:10 am

I don't know if this is the correct location for this thread or not. If not, please move to a better locale.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of Ifa divination. I first encountered it on another site when discussing dreams. Can anyone enlighten me about it?

Ifa Divination seems to have started in West Africa and continued as part of the Voodoo and Santeria traditions. Preliminary research seems to resemble the casting of stones, bones or runes, but uses Palm Nuts that have certain requirements. It has ritualized tools and must be done by at least a Initiate Priest because it references several verses of their holy writings that must be memorized.
I'm living in the Shadows and the Night,
Wrapped in warm darkness, safe and sure.
My Path shines by the Moon's fragile light,
It frees my Mind and keeps my Heart pure.
