for 'sleeping' on this. I'm diggin' what U've said here. Indeed, Osun comes to me as a nurturing 'auntie' when I'm feeling down, when I'm feeling ugly(she reminds me to be Beauty, embrace my Beauty, etc.)Mama Oya fights for me, and guides me(w/ the wisdom & through the grace of Oludumare, of course) to try to help me understand that I don't always(if ever) have to fight, fight, fight for myself, EVEN *gasps* when I perceive myself to be under attack, or threatened(hard lesson for me to learn, so I keep having to learn the d*** thing OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER AGAIN. maybe one day I'll get it, who knows?). I LITERALLY sleep below a Masaai warrior shield @ night, which might not be taking me in the right direction on this thing, but anyway... Osun protects me though. PARTICULARLY when I'm away from home. Or lost. She never fails to come forward, to be w/ me, when I need her. I don't even have to ask. Sometimes I do, out of desperation, but even when I don't, they show up, and do what needs to be done, to help me do what "I" need to do. It's amazing. & I love it.
