|Full Moon 10:25 pm
Yemaya is the supreme mother goddess of the Yoruba traditions and presides over all waters. Call upon her deep powers of love and healing this night in a bath ritual. You'll need seven blue candles, a lunar stone (preferably moonstone), seven white rose petals, seven pinches of sea salt, and seven drops of lavender, peppermint, or passionflower essential oil. Begin by lighting the candles around the tub and drawing a bath. Take a few deep breaths and meditate on what needs to be healed. Allow yourself to call out to Yemaya with your heart as you add the essential oils and salt to your bath. Breathe once more and when you are ready immerse yourself in her waters. Feel her soft caress against your skin as she heals your deepest wounds. Take your time and allow the process to unfold. When you are ready, step out of the bath and leave the rose petals as an offering to Yemaya.
Yemaya. Mother, goddess of the Sea,
Be in this place, come forth unto me,
Lady of the oceans, the lakes, and the rivers,
Beautiful Queen, ebb and flow bringer,
Heal my mind, my body
For with your sweet love, I become whole.
Ashe, Great Mother
