Community Ose Message


As our website continues to be upgraded, we will use this page to display the Ose Message. 
Ose days are considered the most sacred day of Ifa, this is the day all the Orisas are listening. It is the best day to pray to the Orisas as a community and individually.

What are Personal Ose Days?

There are 3 Ose days every Ose cycle. They are every 4 days (5 if you count traditionally the day of the previous Ose as day 1). 

Personal Ose Days are days during the Ose cycle that we observe in our own home. It is intended for us to get together with our family, loved ones, or by ourselves to pray and reflect on the Ose Message.

Ose Reflection Questions

Some reflection questions to consider:  

  • Message: What is the Odu? What was the Ose Message (read the entire message)? How does it relate to my life? Have I been experiencing any of the message, what are some examples? 
  • Taboos: What are the taboos? Have I been following the taboos? Which taboos are easiest to follow and why? Which taboos are the most challenging to follow and why? What was the environment like or what happened when I experienced the taboo? What was the environment like or what happened when I avoided the taboo?
  • Recommendations: This a great day to do the recommendations. What are the recommendations? Have I completed the recommendations? When will I complete the recommendations?  
  • Alignment: Do I feel aligned with the message? If I do feel aligned, what examples do I have that make me feel aligned? If I do not feel aligned, what can I do to get aligned? 
Praying on the Ose Day
One way to pray on the personal Ose day is to recite the ebo prayer and then say whatever you like after and end with Ase (ah-shay)-Ase-Ase-o. It is good practice to include blessings of your community and loved ones. If you are initiated then give your ikins omi (water to calm), oti (gin to revup), or both. And use your ikins to pray.
Here at Temple Egbe Eji-Elemere, in a private Ose prayer session, Olowu Rei and his family get together and pray for the success and protection of their family and the Ifa Community of Ala; as well as complete work as directed. This prayer session is not open for attendance.
