History: The Trap against Òrúnmìlà
Ebo : Akuko , Adie , a trap , Omi tutu (fresh water).
Òrúnmìlà lived in a wooden house was a wise soothsayer and had many Araye (Enemies)
These enemies planned and agreed to burn the house of Òrúnmìlà as they envy him. From
the front door to below the room where Òrúnmìlà consulted they dug a tunnel without
Òrúnmìlà knowing made a hole in the floor sink , they got enough litter and firewood
which was set on fire, Osun was by the right side of Òrúnmìlà moved by the warmth he
felt , seeing Òrúnmìlà that Osun moved put him in charge , consultation with Ifá he told
him about the trap and a lot of fire, Òrúnmìlà then grabbed many buckets of water and
started throwing water on the floor , he saw the cracks had fire down, then grabbed a stick
to break the floor and was saved. All his enemies surrendered and came and told Òrúnmìlà
– “Do with us what you want. ” Òrúnmìlà said, ” All I want is for you to repent and make Ifá
so you guys know what I know. ”
Òrúnmìlà then realized Osun was a saint who had the function of warning and remove
all the evil that came our way , for that reason this sign describes Osun as Òrúnmìlà cane
