Oya represents the change needed to progress from one form to the next. Things must die before they can be reborn and progress. Lesson learned death is a natural and normal process that we go through during our lives. Change is inevitable it is also who and what we are. We are never the same. We are dynamic beings that are ever evolving.

Just like the center of the Earth, there resides within you a burning, churning core. It ignites your flame of passion, of creativity, and strength. It is a highly powerful, magnetic force field of attraction that when tapped into, allows you to achieve the impossible. Go within and lite your life off that flame. -Bella
