The Ifa tradition originating from Nigeria is one of the oldest religions known to man. Traditionally the Obi has been used as the most elemental of divination systems. The Obi shells used are said to be the origins of the Runes and I-Ching. The Orisas, the nature deities were introduced, adapted and eventually humanized by the Ancient Greeks. The tenacious survival and revival of this secret oral tradition of a living spirituality not only aligns with Mother Nature but also one's intuition and ancestors.
The Ifá Divination system was added in 2005 by UNESCO to its list of the "Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity".
The Ifa Obi App is the world's first and only application for Ifa Obi Divination. This tool is designed to interpret the cast when using the Obi in order to quickly learn and align with your highest good. Suitable for beginners to intermediate students and devotees of Yoruba Ifa Orisa culture and religion, it helps one integrate the Obi into your daily life.
The Obi are made up of two male and two female shells which are cast to gain clarity on a situation or a question. This app will help you identify the five positions used for basic divination. This basic Obi divination can be used for questions that require a simple yes, no or maybe answer.
Please share this app with your friends, family and community. Once we get enough interest and reviews we will release the next version with full functionality at a nominal fee. The next release will provide more intermediate and advanced interpretations with the ability to save your questions and casts so that you can improve your intuition.
