Yemaya African Goddess

Yemaya African Goddess-
Yemaja African Goddess
of All the waters of the World
They say her blood is the
maker of all mankind.
Good evening my dear Friends & Followers for today I have found another beautiful African Goddess Yemaya of west African mythology. She is an very important goddess in the African culture from what I found discovered. Why? Well because Yemaya was the first mother that ruled all the waters of the world, her blood in a matter of speaking, is the maker of all mankind...
Yemaya is also the mother of the Goddess Oshun is a earlier post that I have done...
The Goddess Yemaya besides being the mother of all the waters of the world, she is also associated with fertility,sexuality and the moon. Since she is the spirit of the water nothing can live without her. This means all things - All the plants, animals, birds, fish and life in the waters and lands. Humans too. Everything is partly made from the Goddess Yemaya and for these reasons is why she is called the Queen of the World...
According to African mythology the Supreme Being created a pantheon of Gods and Goddesses called Orishas. These Orishas regulate the world as we know it and act as intermediaries between man(humans) and the Supreme Being. After the Supreme Being had created the World, He discovered that it had a large hole in it. So He filled this hole with water he made from some gas clouds. At the same time he created the goddess Yemaya and gave her domain over all the waters of the world. At night, the Goddess Yemaya became Nana Buruku, the moon, Mysterious and Mystical. So Basically The Goddess Yemaya would regulate both the day and the night as two different goddess so that neither is too long. Like other moon Goddesses Yemaya (Nana Buruku as the moon Goddess) controls the tides and the rain. She is also very beautiful and brought beauty into the world too...
Oddua the First Man
Yemaya Love 
I guess like all Goddesses and Gods in all cultures they too marry too - And when the Goddess Yemaya had married Oddua, the first man and then Yemaya became the first mother.
She it was said in the African Mythology in their belief of creation and their Supreme being ...
That Yemaya is the mother of all the other Orishas. As a mother she brought compassion into the world too. It seems that Yemaya marriage with Oddua was one of the Earth & Water - all else that is created from that with the goddess Yemaya and Oddua the first Man. Their love is said is the greatest in the world and lasts even today in the African Culture. I could find an part where it tell about her daughter Oshun. However, it could be that it wasn't important in the legend of the Queen of Yemaya... It seems that the African Culture also believed, that if the love of -Yemaya & Oddua Stops (even now) - the earth and water will be separate again and it will be the end of the World. Well I found this to be very interesting myself as I explore different cultures and their beliefs. Also their different gods and goddesses too. I hope that you all found this interesting too. I am going to leave you with a few images that I found of the beautiful goddess.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend My dear Friends & Followers
