Juju/charm/spells are English word meaning ọgwụ in Igbo.
Àjà is an Igbo word meaning sacrifice.
Now look at the differences.
As much as àjà looks like ọgwụ to an ofeke, get to know that àjà is not ọgwụ.
Ọgwụ are those ritual exercises that when done, we put them in place for self-services. Such as awele, the ring we put on the fingers, the ones we put somewhere at home (hang on the wall or buried on the ground), the ones we tie on the trees, insert on our body etc. These are ọgwụ _ juju/spells /charms.
(Here are few photos to help understanding of what juju looks like)
One looks at you and assumed that you just put a ring on finger not knowing you are putting ọgwụ.
The ring here as seen in the image has power for disappear in a period of danger. It’s not the ring, the metal itself but the content inside the ring. Zoom the picture to see that it’s filled and sealed with materials inside. Putting it in your finger no one knows what you have except yourself. Hence the contents are inside not outside.
The other gives protection against witchcraft any form of juju. If can be used to identify where charms are buried or content with dangerous charms. The moment it takes notice of charm, it begins to hot your finger (signs of danger). These are known as ọgwụ.
These are the rituals which we do for the purpose of self-services (long time or short time services).
Most times, these juju/spells after preparation by the spiritualist would ask for sacrifices to help effects. To do this, you might have to offer, make seasonal or occasional sacrifices to the charm for effects. This is where we have blood or non-blood sacrifices to a charm.
Some charms might not asked for sacrifices, blood or none blood sacrifices but then asked you to forbid one or two things to help effects. These when done act like sacrifices though you aren’t making a physical sacrifice in manner as seen in others.
These as explained above are different from àjà _ sacrifices.
So, when I ask you to keep fit with rituals to open and promote your spiritual vibration to a higher frequency. I mean, you should be ritualistic!
Now, to sacrifices.
Sacrifices has to do with ritual exercises meant for all spirits or to a spirit in particular which are not taken alongside with us after the ritual performances. Our spiritual offering, performances and presentations meant for all spirits or to a spirit in particular which are after the exercise can’t be kept with us as seen in case of spells.
This is why we visit marine for ritual sacrifices. Getting there, the sacrifices are done and left behind water bodies, for the spirits to rule over them. We also make sacrifices on the road, straight road, junctions and roundabout.
When these are done, it is considered a sacrifice not a spell /ọgwụ even though it looks like and offer same or similar spiritual results. But then, they are differently and can’t be said to be same.
This is why the wise often says, àjà ka ọgwụ – sacrifices are greater than juju. The secret has to do with the explanations so far. Whereby someone went and brought something home for a purpose, having knowledge of what he has and at same time ready to make all necessary rituals for effectiveness. And another having knowledge of sacrifices has to fight that which the other kept at home with the power of sacrifices.
This is why we see death, calamity befalling one and say, go and make so and so sacrifices. When he does, the effect stop. The spirit at work for the purpose has to be arrested by the power of the sacrifices.
It’s because the spirit which fought is one while the spirit which are invoked for a defense (by the power of sacrifices) are many. They have to stop the juju for the purpose it was sent forth.
Most times you find out that those who make or have spells for money has limited money compared with those who continuously perform ritual sacrifices. Our sacrifices asked for serious commitment to the spirit world, exposing us to spiritual bodies greater than juju. Sacrifices when performed speaks louder than s

pells. This is why, we keep telling people, in as much as you say prayers, make sacrifices as well to boast your prayers.
Comparing sacrifices with prayers are like comparing amputated man with an able man. A man with one leg can’t be compared with a man with two legs. This is why a man with one leg don’t answer dike – valiant man. He can’t stand pleasure from a blow or hand push like a man with both legs.
Prayers when moved, reporting to the realm of spirit kept knocking on the door and has to wait for a permission to make entrance unlike a sacrifice.
A sacrifice is like that of a child whose father sent robbing, he uses leg to blow off the door. Our Sacrifice speaks with louder voice and make immediate entrance, waiting for no permission.
This is light house of wisdom where knowledge of the truth rules.
Get knowledge and understanding, in all you get, get wisdom.
Know the truth!
The truth you know, and practice shall set you free.
Still on sacrifices, the instruction may say, kill so and so thing at so and so hour or so and so point for so and so purpose.
When it’s done, no spirits are given or called to receive or control the sacrifices but ezemezu arụsị – all gods and goddesses
Therefore, you see people performing rituals inside market that boom daily.
Taken someone to such a market for a ritual sacrifice, ritual bath is a great exposure. Such sacrifices speak louder and the sound uncontrollable.
This is why after such ritual is undertaken, the subject asala ọkụ – become weird, known, rule and has to dominate (owing to the purpose of undertaking).
Many are road one has to cross to control wealth and riches but then you have to start somewhere.
When someone is taken to a deep flowing sea, river or ocean for ritual bath for powers, money or fame.
It’s not juju and can’t be said to be juju for its not like juju.
They are all spiritual practices with a difference.
So, don’t be deceived by ofeke pastors who knows nothing and claim they know something. This is why I often said ọrịa gbuo mpete, ọ laa ya n’afọ.
You as a human being knowing that this is world of human and spirits _ ụwa mmụọ na mmadụ has to identify yourself with the spirits body to help you rule your world. Otherwise you are just wasting your time no matter what you believe in.
