Guardian Orisa & Life Path

Eligible for FREE Shipping

The Life Path reading has been performed for thousands of years in Africa on the third day of a new child's life. It is the reading that lays the foundation for your entire life.  

In this reading we first examine the Path that you have selected. In Ifa, while most individuals are intent only upon identifying their primary Guardian Orisha, the Truth is that the selection of that Orisha to guide your life was specific to the path and energy you selected in the realm of Ajal Mopin at the moment of conception. Each of us has certain things we are meant to learn or accomplish during our lifetimes. This path will allow us to accomplish these most effectively. In addition, it will provide the energies necessary to  allow us greater success, love, health, family and fulfillment in the rest of our experiences.
In this Life Path / Guardian reading, the specific energies and their application to your everyday success as well as your emotional/spiritual success are clearly defined and explained. In addition, of course, this reading identifies the Orisha Energy you selected to help you most effectively traverse this Path successfully. Your primary Orisha comprises the overwhelming amount of energy you will use to most effectively navigate your Life Path.
In this Life Path reading it is also possible to identify your Primary Guardian Ancestor, who will reside in your Ori and help you on this journey. In order to do this you need to know several generations of departed blood relatives (who died prior to your conception ). You would make a list separating who was on your Mother's side and then your Father's.   

This reading is NOT for short term issues such as: "will I get the job," or "how do I improve my relationships?."  These are questions that must be addressed in a Regular Divination.

Because of the long term importance of this foundational reading, they are performed by Oluwo Philip John Neimark, and then e-mailed to you so that you will have a permanent written record for the rest of your life.   

There is no difference in the accuracy of divination performed in person, via e-mail or on the telephone. We do find it most important to have us type the whole thing up so you can have it as permanent record and refer to it regularly.

It is often difficult for individuals to understand how the process of Divination can be as accurate when done via e-mail or telephone, as it is when divining in-person for an individual. The answer is quite simple: While individual Diviners may have limitations, Energy has no limitations. To presume that Orunmila (Arula) can only function within a small physical space is, of course, nonsense. This is simply another area where the timeless, adaptive energy of the Orisha, has been limited by the perception, vision and understanding of certain practioners. A thousand years ago, with no phones, telegraph or computers, divination was always practiced in person. As society and technology changed, Orisha energy was totally able to integrate those changes into its' matrix. Indeed, if it could not, then the conclusions reached, divining i! n person in today's world, could not possibly be valid. Yet, we know they are.
Divination is a process of the triangulation of energy. This triangle includes the Diviner, the client and Orunmila (Arula). If Diviner's are limited by their ability to perceive this energy triangulation in any way other than having the client sitting across the mat, or table, it is their personal limitation, not the limitation of Orunmila. In Divination, as in all areas of life, there are different levels of ability, intellect and understanding. It would seem more logical and effective to have your Divination performed by someone comfortable with, knowledgeable about and successful in, the current cultural and technological world we live in, rather than someone stuck in past.

I am so greatful that I reached out to Iya Vassa. She did my path reading and it helped bring incite and clarity to my life. My path reading revealed that my orisa on my head is Ogun. I feel a deep connection with Ogun. IyaVassa really has helped me develop a good platform for me to continue my learning of Ifa.

I had the pleasure of receiving a guardian reading and was thoroughly blessed with the truth that I was provided. The information rang true and has provided me with the clarity and confirmation I needed to move forward toward initiation, not only for myself but also for my family. The connection with Iya is simply divine and one that I look forward to building! I highly recommend a reading, the energy is straight forward, honest and true. Thank you so much Iya!!! Blessings.

Ifa Foundation friends,

Thank you so much for providing these divination's. If it were not for this reading, I would not have had the knowledge that started a whole new journey of growth and exploration. The journey that this reading began has changed my life and continues to reveal itself as I get to know myself better through my connection to orisa and egun.

There is a reason every Yoruba child once received this reading. It is because this knowledge is truly the beginning of an amazing roadmap that can lead you incredible places if you're willing to take a leap, and see in a new way.
