While numerology is busy calculating the numbers, Ifa Oracle goes straight into the message straight through divination. Ifa Oracle has so many corpuses. There are sixteen basic corpuses which other corpuses are merged with to bring messages forth.
There are two hundred and fifty six corpuses of IFA that are used as guides by the Ifa priest. And all the information concerning the corpuses is known to the priest just like the information and numbers concerning the Numerology are known to the Numerologist. I will be dealing with the subject matter in parts as this very one can not provide all the information to the issue at hand. These are the sixteen basic corpuses of Ifa Oracle.
The first is EJIOGBE. If this corpus comes out, it means goodness in everything. Like success at work, in travelling, riches, having good kids, getting married to a good person, progress to enviable position and if you are from royal house, you will become either a king or a chief. That is the illustrative explanation for EJIOGBE. We have other corpuses like OYEKU MEJI, IWORI MEJI, ODI MEJI, IROSUN MEJI, OWONRIN MEJI, OBARA MEJI, OKANRAN MEJI, OGUNDA MEJI, OSA MEJI, EKA MEJI, OTURUPON MEJI, OTURA MEJI, IRETE MEJI, OSE MEJI and OFUN MEJI.
All these corpuses have their meanings and illustrations just like Numerology. But in Numerology, there are twelve basic numbers illustrating the information of each number as the case may be. And the numbers are ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, ELEVEN, TWENTY TWO AND THIRTY THREE.
For Example, Positive Characteristics: Individualistic and independent, showing leadership and drive. The number 1 is masculine, focused, an originator and self starter, It is also progressive, strong willed, courageous (in a constructive way). Negative Characteristic: 1s can be stubborn, selfish, weak and undisciplined, or a pariah.
In my subsequent write ups, I will explain the meanings of the remaining corpuses of Ifa Oracle as related to the meanings of the remaining numbers in Numerology that I have not touched.
