Yemaya means “Mother Whose Children are the Fish” to reflect the fact that her children are uncountable. She also rules over maternity in our lives as she is the Mother of All. She Who Gives Birth to All of Life, Yemaya is aligned with the power of creation flowing through all that is. In this aspect, she assists with remembering, reclaiming and activating our own innate creative power, realizing our true and natural ability to create and experience magnificence within our life.
