Description of Goddess of the Ocean – Yemaya
Yemaya is considered the Mother Goddess in African Belief. Mama Watta, as she is also known presided over the Ogun River that she called home. Her breasts are full and large from birthing so many creations. It is said that Yemaya gave birth to all the world’s water.
Petition Yemaya if you are a woman. You may pray to her with matters of the home, fertility, family, and love. In her kind state, Yemaya is the giver of life, so if you are seeking to have a child, pray to Yemaya. Yemaya is also a fierce protectress of women so if you or one of your daughters are in danger, ask Yemaya for protection. Yemaya is also the very essence of femininity.
Yemaya… her colors of blues & silver … Her number is 7 and her children the fish…
