Orishas are the human form of spirits that guide us on how to live and succeed on earth. They rule over the forces of nature and the endeavors of humanity. Each orisha can be recognized via their different numbers and colors which are their marks. Pray to the orishas for guidance on how to successfully live daily with proper alignment and knowledge of one's head, soul, and personal destiny. Eleggua is the guardian of the roads and doors in this world. The colors red and black or white and black to support his contradictory nature.
