AJE OLOKUN The goddess of wealth, is among the loved Orisa out of the 401 gods that is being worshiped in lle-lfe. The main capacity and strength of the goddess of wealth is to provide sufficient wealth and greater economic benefits for whoever worships her.

AJE is known to be the daughter of Olokun. Nevertheless, Olokun himself respects AJE, that is why it is sometimes being referred to as AJE Olokun (Goddess of wealth). In fact, some are of the belief that it is essential to praise AJE before anyone can get favour from Olokun, this is due to the fact that AJE is the only daughter of Olokun and Olokun loves her dearly.










AJE can be found in waters. This was the source of spending cowries before the advent of present currencies. All Aje Olokun takes are; banana, beans, ekuru, oyin (honey) and so on. All these could be said to be the main reasons why all you see about AJE is white clothes, cowries e.t.c and all must be clean.

The major benefit for Aje Olokun is the provision of wealth for her worshipers. This wealth provision is done in a very unique and natural way. Goddess of wealth blesses her worshipers beyond their mates and colleague in whatever they do.

In other for anyone to be blessed by the goddess of wealth, it must not be by just worshiping her, there must be something such worshiper must be doing that AJE Olokun is expected to bless for sufficiency. This simply means, AJE only help those who help themselves.

It should be noted, taking good care of anyone of such spirit is equivalent to worshiping AJE herself. The more one takes care of any female with such gift, the more he or she is blessed in his/her endeavours. It was emphasized that we also have some men with such spirits, but they are not as common compared to the number of females, as it was initially stated that AJE herself is a female.

ORUNMILA, like others was in search of the goddess but he did not rush; he took his time and followed the instructions given to him. Others went in search of the goddess of wealth but the goddess hid herself from them, seeing their desperation. When they left, Orunmila came on goat as directed by the ifa divination and the goddess of wealth chose to follow him.

On getting home, Orunmila offered her banana and other special foods she likes. The goddess of wealth was so pleased and she became the great source of wealth that Orunmila has till now.
