EGBE = Represents our heavenly companions in heaven. Egbe Orun is an Orisa who is our spiritual comrades in heaven. Each individual on the physical plane has an Egbe that follows us as our shadow.

In general there are different Egbe from different sources, which vary in class / type. Many times depending on the covenant made with one’s Egbe before incarnating in this world determines if a person is tormented by his Egbe. This in turn dictates if one simply needs to make offerings to Egbe or receive full initiation. Failure to acknowledge the promises made to Egbe in heaven results in one being tormented by their celestial companions.

When a person does not properly take care of his Egbe to offer offerings there are cases in which these spiritual partners misbehave and do evil towards the person. They cause disruption in that person’s life. The afflicted person will be in trouble with money, nightmares, relationship problems, etc. Egbe of the person will bother them until they deliver an appropriate sacrifice or offer is made to the Egbe. If the first signs are overlooked leading to a more serious situation with Egbe, the person will have to make a special sacrifice called Eru Egbe.
