even though everyday is a new beginning, the new year gives us this sense of a fresh start, fills us with hopefulness for infinite possibilities. i picked a goddess card today and it was YEMANJA. how perfect- she’s an African and Brazilian goddess who’s credited with creating the sea and every December 31st, Brazil celebrates Yemanja by casting white flowers and miniature boats upon the sea waters. the legend says to put tiny boats into the water and ask Yemanja to grant your wish… if the sea swallows the boat, Yemanja grants your wish… if the boat is washed up on the shore, your wish is denied. what a beautiful way to connect with the earth and the divine and our dreams. i’m going to find a way to go to the ocean tonight and make a wish to Yemanja. wishing you a magical 2011 that exceeds your grandest dreams.
bringing in a beautiful NEW YEAR with Yemanja
