Yemaya

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. Her arms out stretched 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 colored 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, 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 made 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 abruptly the scenery changes and we’re sitting at a table eating while I’m telling her these things about me. But now at the table she was a regular woman. She looked like a Black Latino with long curly hair and fair skin. She tells me that she’s come to guide me. At the table there is a Latino 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.

Scenery changes again and now I’m sitting on a couch and she’s on the floor sitting in front me. She then asks me how’s my journey with Christianity and I replied harshly with “non 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 tells me she’s going to do a reading for me. We were clearing off the couch and I started the recorder on my phone, so I could record the reading. Then she sat back down on the floor then abruptly I was out of the dream and didn’t get the reading.

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 bonding with these ancestors and their deities. This experience opened a doorway for me to learn about Yemaya and the Orisha traditions. I thank, welcome, honor and appreciate her for coming to me.

My personal drawing of how Yemaya appeared to me in my dream
Yemaya dress looked just like this
Yemaya had this same mask on
Yemaya appeared to me in this same position with arms outstretched, veil over her face, over water and the crescent moon and stars above her head
