Know thy Goddess: Yemanya

On my Facebook Page, I have started doing a Goddess of the Week segment, so I thought I would continue it here, a little more in depth.

I consulted my Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards to choose a Goddess.

Yemanya is an African/Brazillian Goddess who is credited with creating the sea. She is a protector, a supplier and one who grants wishes.  At her celebration on December 31st, her worshippers arrive at shorelines dressed in white and launch little boats loaded with flowers, candles, and gifts.  If Yemanya grants your wish or accepts your offering , her waves will swallow the miniature boat, and if she denies the wish the boat will return and wash ashore. It is said that those who come to Mother Yemanya and surrender to her find that their troubles dissolve in the waters of her embrace.

Sensing Yemanya in your life means it is time to surrender.  Please note, this is not a time to give up, but rather ask for assistance. The act of surrendering is one of opening and trust. When we open and trust, we allow Goddess energy to work with us to achieve what we need.

Yemanya's Message:
Important Doors are opening for you right now. Walk through them.   Like the oceans waves, timing is everything, so when the opportunity presents itself dive in at that moment and allow your doubts to be washed away!
