Orunmila, African God of Wisdom and Divination


Orunmila is the African god of wisdom, knowledge, and divination. Orunmila is the master of Ifa, a complex, sacred system of divination. He also taught people cowrie shell divination. He is considered among the most powerful orishas. He was the only Orisha permitted to witness creation. As a powerful healer, he is known for his vast knowledge of herbs and roots.

This yellow and green candle is embedded with green aventurine crystals, citrine, and an African palm nut. Yellow and green are colors associated with Orunmila. Green Aventurine stones (embedded in the yellow half of the candle) heal the heart, enabling well-being and the emotional calm to discover wisdom. Citrine (embedded in the candle's green half) promotes radiance from within the self and brightens even the darkest corner of one’s perceived reality. The scent is a combination of green leaves, sandalwood, lemon, ginger, and saffron. African palm nuts are used in an Ifa divination and are sacred to Orunmila.

Meditation: God of all knowledge and Ifa divination, grant me your wisdom. Help me retain my integrity, even when in fear, so that I can maintain balance as I seek my destiny.

Candle magic illuminates your intention and releases it out into the universe.

My candles are infused with herbs, crystals, and a meditation script to help you focus your energy. A simple spell to use with this candle is to start by creating a space that is quiet, comfortable, and safe. Visualize your intention and read the meditation as you light the candle. Stare at the flame and continue to send your intent into the light. You can sit in front of it for as long as you like. When ready, close your candle ritual with words of gratitude and a positive affirmation. Let your candle burn as much as needed, making sure you extinguish it before you leave.

Please remember that while powerful, candle magic and intention do not manifest immediate results. Whatever magical ceremony or ritual you decide to perform is simply the messenger whose purpose is to deliver your goals into the arms of the universe—nothing more. You still have to show the cosmos that you are willing to do the work needed to reach your goal.

Candle symbology

A candle embodies the five elements: earth, water, air, fire, and spirit. The wick is earth and keeps the flame constant. The wax, which transforms from a solid to a liquid and then to gas, emulates water’s transmutation properties. Oxygen, archetypal of air, is crucial for keeping the flame lit. The flame is a direct connection to fire, the element of transformation, and rebirth. The fifth element, spirit, is within us and manifests when our intention is placed into the candle and infuses it with our soul.
