Invocation for Yemaya:
Goddess who is Mother of All,
Queen of the Deep Sea,
Protectress of women –
Allow your presence to be known throughout this sacred space.
We who call upon you as Yemaya,
Our Mother, Our Womb of Creation,
ask that your love rolls and washes over us
as the waves of the ocean, as the rivers from your breasts.
Yemaya, Mother Whose Children are Fish,
You who are comfort, inspiration, and forgiveness,
We call you forth to enter our hearts.
Yemaya’s Wisdom for the Circle:
I am the force that swirls beneath the surface,
She who connects Sea and Sky,
the Infinite Mother who reclaims you.
Feel the sand beneath your feet, hold the conch to your ear,
gaze upon My Blue,
and you know Me.
Submit your troubles upon Me,
cast your cares into the heart of the ocean that is Me.
I will nurture you,
wipe your tears,
soothe the anger,
and shelter you from the coming storms.
In your surrender, I become your voice.
In the giving over, I become your freedom.
Daughter, come home, and allow Me
to make whole
that which is incomplete.
