Gran Ibo is a goddess/loa of wisdom and
patience. She sits and waits, watching and embracing the heart of the swamp. She
holds the secrets of the mysteries that lie therein. She is the one who knows
the magic and the medicine found within her little sisters who are the healing
plants and herbs of the forest. She knows the power of the water. Through her,
the roots, plants, herbs, and flowers of the swamp communicate to the voodooist.
This goddess is a hermit. She is ancient and wise. Her home is in the solitude
of nature away from prying eyes. Her sacred animal is the yellow canary who
whispers secrets of the mysteries into her ears. Canaries lead the soul to the
ancestral realm. Give Gran Ibo and her canary food, blue-gray candles, swamp
plants, plants with healing properties, seeds, and love and respect.
Gran Ibo is excellent with oils and incenses.
She has inner peace and bliss. She has foresight into things. She is
not rash nor is she impulsive. She understands and hears all the languages of
life forms around her. If you lie she will see right through you.
She is the Loa of the Vodun tradition called Congo.
