The 7 powers are the main deities that make up the Yoruba pantheon and are also considered the fundamental gods of this African religion, which is why they are also known in various regions and countries as the "7 African powers".

These powerful representatives of the pantheon also symbolize the immense forces of nature combined, such as the water of the seas, rivers, fire and earth.

Who are the Seven African Powers?

Who are the Seven African Powers

Let us remember who the 7 African powers are and although these deities are invoked for any situation in life, the main powers that represent them are:

  • Obatala, orisha Yoruba creator of the world and sculptor of the human being. It is invoked to request favors framed within peace and harmony.
  • The warrior Shango, king of the Yoruba pantheon and god of thunder and fire. It is called mainly to request protection against enemies and ask for strength in difficult situations.
  • Orisha ELEGUÁ., the Yoruba messenger and the one who opens the roads. He is invoked to request the favor of removing obstacles in the way that stand in the way of achieving some goal.
  • Oshun, Orisha of Love and also related to money. It is called when we deal with problems related to love and the search for abundance.  
  • Oggun, Orisha patron of metals and worker god. He is invoked to get a good job or have a good income, in addition to asking him for good fortune and firmness for our steps.
  • Orunmila or OrulaWise, Orisha, connoisseur of the secrets of the Ifá oracle, fortune teller and benefactor. Wisdom and clarity are requested when facing new challenges.
  • Yemaya, goddess of the waters, warrior and protective mother. You are asked for help to improve health and for personal protection as well as that of our loved ones. He is the one who takes care of the womb of women and fertility.

Taking into account the characteristics of each of the Orishas that are members of the seven powers, we must know that we can invoke them according to our specific problem, although just by dedicating a heart prayer to the Orishas they will hear the supplication.

But it is also good to point out that the prayer to the 7 powers as a unit becomes more powerful than its action separately, although it all depends on the request of the devotee.

It is worth clarifying that all devotees of the Rule of the Ocha (Santeria) You can request the help of the 7 African powers in a moment of need or gratitude, it is always opportune to know the magnitude of the powers of these Orishas and their preferences before making the prayers to invoke them.

How can we worship the deities of the 7 powers?

Before raising a prayer to the 7 powers, we must create a favorable environment for prayer and prayer to these powerful Orishas and thus ask for love, health, money or work, or whatever we heartily desire.

If you worship these powerful orishas you can also build an altar to honor these deities:

  1. Place a white tablecloth to cover the surface and on this place the image of the orishas that make up the 7 powers.
  2. Then you can place a candle of 7 colors, which are representative of the 7 powers. The different distinctive offerings of each Orisha can be added to the altar, such as flowers, food, drinks, among others.
  3. We can also offer them elements with great powers that generate good energy and spirituality, such as a bouquet of flowers, various fruits, brandy, tobacco or honey.
  4. To begin the prayer, we must light the 7-colored candle or a white candle if it does not have one, and pray the prayer at the 7 powers determined, depending on the request and the case.
  5. At the end of the prayer, the candle is extinguished.

This prayer at 7 powers must be repeated for 7 nights continuously and at the end of it the determined request is made, according to the devotee's problem.

Let us bear in mind that the main element of this ceremonial is the great faith that we put in the help of the 7 powers.

Prayer is a powerful resource that is used for the Orishas to help us overcome obstacles when we invoke them because we feel lost and in the middle of serious situations.

Therefore, their protection is requested in a single prayer that covers all areas of daily life.
