10/19/10 Yemaya Rising
Owusa is in her late twenties. She came to see me because she had received two readings previously when she was told that she had dark energies around her that were creating obstacles in her life. At the start of the reading, she shared that she has been plagued with a sense that she has always had to struggle against forces that undermined her, since childhood. She also tends to feel drained.
At the start of the reading, it immediately emerges that she is a beautiful, gentle spirit with many gifts. She has a very special energy that was identified early on by malevolent forces. I had thoughts of the case of Mumia Abu Jamal, a journalist and freedom fighter whose talents were identified early. He remains in captivity decades later, a political prisoner on death row.
With a similar sinister determination, I was shown that a counsel actually met to decide her fate, and determined to do all they could to undermine her. I pause to consult with Tehuti about my approach, to determine if I should explore more details about this destructive counsel, or proceed to learn more about Owusa. He advises me to focus on her path, irregardless of their influences.
As I turn my attention to her, Tehuti expresses his outrage at the situation. I sense her wonderful spirit, and all of the time she has had to endure repeated onslaughts. You have much work to do, you are a spiritual warrior. I ask her to repeat:
I am a spiritual warrior! I am a spiritual warrior! I am a spiritual warrior!
He also affirms that this onslaught against her is done. It is over!
He now begins to work on her energy field. A large black brick appears, filling her entire chest cavity. Tehuti places one hand below it and braced it with the other hand in the corner. He carefully lifts it out of her and places it in the vase of water I placed next to her. He then lined the empty space with diamond powder. I then place an inverted vase on her chest to pull out the remaining energies. A thin dark smoke floats into the vase. Then a small, dark, seated figure emerges. I place her in the water but she does not dissolve. She merely sits there. Soon I sense that it is the spirit of Owusa as a little girl. She then stands beside the vase, terrified. Tehuti appears beside her. She leaps into his arms, wrapping her arms and legs around him.
I can feel her pain. She has had no friends, no one who truly saw her. She was isolated and afraid. In Tehuti’s arms, she begins to relax. Finally, she steps away and begins to pull black snakes and worms from her body. Soon Yemaya appears, the divine mother and goddess of the ocean in the Yoruba tradition. She is merged with the little girl, and stumbles about confused and disoriented. I sense that Owusa is Yemaya! Soon she lays down and a mound of cowrie shells covers her. Snakes appear, crawling across her in all directions.
It is clear that these snakes have a loving energy towards her. Their green color soon emerges. A few of them smile at me as I note that green is the color of the heart chakra.
Soon she regains her strength. In a smooth and sensuous gesture, she rises to her feet, twisted a bit with one shoulder dipping down, arms resting at her sides. As she emerges upright, she reaches her left hand across her body and extends it out to her side, followed by the right, embracing the ocean that appears before her. Cowrie shells dangle from her long locks like drops of water. Cowrie shells also cover her breasts and dangling from a cord around her waist. Soon she lays inside of Owusa, back in the room with me, and reminds her, you are Yemaya.
Throughout the reading, Owusa is very active, breathing deeply, laughing at times. Now her rejoicing becomes even more apparent. Soon she is speaking in the voice of Yemaya. I note the highlights of what is said:
You are beautiful.
You are beautiful.
Your path is good.
Nothing can harm you!
If you trust in me, nothing can harm you!
I love you, I speak through you!
Be free. Expand like the ocean!
You are beautiful! Look at you! Look at you!
I speak through you.
I love you. I love everyone, because I am the Mother!
Spread love now! Spread it!
I bless your hands, I bless your hands.
Look at me, look around you.
I am your energy field!
Trust me. Trust in me and nothing can come against you!
Owusa explains that Yemaya is healing her womb. She begins to lift herself on her ankles and grind her hips as if she is giving birth.
Do not worry, do not worry.
You will have children! You will have two children!
Yemaya then explains that she must go home, to her native Nigeria, to be initiated. She explains that her grandmther will be present. It is no matter whether her grandmother is alive or dead when Owusa returns, she will be there!
Ani also appears. Owusa explains that Ani is the great mother.
She is happy.
Speak! You must help people!
Let me speak through you!
Owusa also explains that Omishe, the river goddess, is also present.
She also explains that they are saying that she must stop eating meat.
Stay in communication with Yemaya.
Cowrie shells!- waist beads etc.
