The morning of August 19, 2020, 3 days after my birthday, I was visited in my dreams by a deity/orisha. Below is what happened in my dream, written down in my phone as soon as I woke up so I wouldn’t forget anything.
I was in a dark place with water beneath my feet. I could hear the water and see it as if I was seeing clearly in the dark. Like when your eyes adapt to a dark room. Suddenly appears a woman over the water and I look up at her and see the crescent moon above her head and stars in the sky. She her arms out stretches to me in a position of embrace and waiting for me to come into her arms for a hug. Her face is covered by a veil of jewels, she has a white blank expression mask over her face, she’s draped in a bluish cale dress that is puffy-like and she has horns on her head like a large cattle with pearls hanging from them.
She says to me “come child” and I go to her and she hugs me, embraces me and comforts me and all feels better. Like when you hug your mom and she absorbs all your pain from you because that what mothers do. She tells me to tell her about me, so I told her about myself; which was all the pain I’ve occurred over the years. Being mad fun of as a kid and having no friends because I was different and in-tune. I tell her about the abuse I endured at the hands of my ex-husband and I burst out crying. Then, I tell her about how my spiritual awakening happened after my divorce.
Then we abruptly we was sitting at a table eating while telling her these things about me. When at the table she was a regular woman. She looked like black Latino with long curly hair and fair skin.
She tells me that she’s comes to guide me. At the table there is a man and a woman who aren’t speaking. I ask her why the 2 other people are with her and she says they are support.
Now we’re I’m sitting on a couch and she’s on the floor sitting in front me. She then asks me how was my journey with Christianity and I replied harshly with “none existent, I don’t follow that crap”. She replies, we don’t care if people do. I then reply, I don’t because I hate being lied to and religion is one of the biggest lies ever. Plus, the reason for what’s really wrong on this earth.
Then she was going to do a reading for me. We were clearing off the couch, I started the recorder on my phone so I could record the session. Then she sat back on the floor then I was out of the dream.
I’ve never been drawn to any of the African deities or Orishas. It’s always been Egyptian and Sumerian deities that have come to me. But I was told during an akashic reading that one of my karmas is finding my earthly and galactic ancestral lineage. My DNA ancestry has my African lineage in Nigeria, Cameroon, South Africa, Sudan, Ethiopia and so on. Those cultures are Yoruba, Bantu, Kushites, Khoisan, Zulu, Khmer and Fulani.
So it’s about time I started my bonding with these ancestors and their deities. This experience helped me learn that Yemaya is my Ori and is protecting my head. I thank, welcome and honor her and appreciate her protection and guidance.
