Transition To Yemaya
In her bout of fury Yembo’s soul left her body and Yemaya’s soul entered Yembo’s body . Those that were present witnessed this spectacular event became truly dumbfounded , even Obatala himself became aware of the grandeur that was his Obini (wife). Her tears fell unto the floor of Olodumares Ile ( house) in the form of rain, and it is these tears that give life to the living creatures and vegetation on earth. It was here that in front of everyone Yemaya split in two , she became two different entities with two different personalities . One became Yemaya and the other Nana Buruku , who in that moment raised high into the skies and became the moon where she shines down her light for the inhabitants of earth reminding them that their mother is not far away and always watching from above. **Nana Buruku used that fury toward Oggun , she never looked upon him… nor can she stand his presence in hers. For this all offerings made to her must be by wooden knife for even his metal she rejects .
