I Am #Greatful For…

  1. Protection
  2. Acceptance
  3. Being The Living Embodiment Of My Orisha

“Oya is a Great Yoruban Orisha. She is the goddess of Storms and Winds, and Her realm ranges from
rainbows to thunder.  Her name means “She Who Tore” in Yoruba.  She can manifest as winds ranging from
the gentlest breeze to the raging hurricane or cyclone. Oya is known as a fierce Warrior goddess and a strong
Protectress of women, who call upon Her.  It is She who assists us with rapid inner and outer transformation.
Oya, is about absolute change (especially for the good) and is not a slow or very patient energy.  According to
Luisah Teish in the book, Jambalaya,

‘Oya-Yansa is the Queen of the Winds of change. She is feared by many people because She brings about
sudden structural change in people and things. Oya does not just rearrange the furniture in the house — She
knocks the building to the ground and blows away the floor tiles.'” –http://www.aawiccan.org/site/Oya.html
