This is the year that I return to the Goddess and making Goddess art. I recently purchased a beautiful deck of Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue to help guide me in my quest and for inspiration.
Today I drew the Yemanya card, Golden Opportunity: “Important doors are opening for you right now. Walk through”. How very fitting.
Yemanya the beautiful Brazilian Wishing Goddess. Like the ocean, life is rich with variety and beauty.
Pronounced “YEH-MAHN-JAH”; She is the Brazilian goddess who was created with the sea. Every December 31, people in Brazil celebrate Yemanya by casting white flowers and miniature boats upon the sea. You can work with Yemanya by putting a tiny boat into the sea and asking for a wish. If Yemanya grants your wish , her waves will swallow the miniature boat, and if she denies the wish the boat will wash ashore. Since the sea is the root of the Earths life, Yemanya’s connection to it makes her a very powerful and nurturing mother goddess. She’s a protector, supplier and one who grants wishes.
A Message from Yemanya “Golden Opportunity”
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!
