Oshun, also spelled Osun, an orisha (deity) of the Yoruba people of southwestern Nigeria. Oshun is commonly called the river orisha, or goddess, in the Yoruba religion and is typically associated with water, purity, fertility, love, and sensuality. She is considered one of the most powerful of all orishas, and, like other gods, she possesses human attributes such as vanity, jealousy, and spite. Oshun is generally depicted as the protector, saviour, or nurturer of humanity. Oshun has also been described as the maintainer of spiritual balance or mother of sweet things. One myth highlights Oshun as the central figure in the creation of human beings. The Yoruba people believe that the orishas were sent by Olodumare, who is considered the Supreme God, to populate the Earth. Oshun, being one of the original 17 sent to Earth, was the only female deity. The other gods, all male, failed at their attempts to revive and populate the Earth. When they realized they were unable to complete the task given to them by Olodumare, they tried to persuade Oshun to help them. Oshun agreed and brought forth her sweet and powerful waters, bringing life back to Earth and humanity and other species into existence. As that Yoruba myth suggests, humanity would not exist if Oshun, the goddess of life and fertility, had not acted.
Other myths hold that Oshun is one of the wives of Shango, the god of thunder. She is commonly described as the favourite of all orishas by Olodumare, because of her beauty and sensuality. In yet another Yoruba story, Oshun is depicted as the goddess who not only gives life but also takes it. When angered, Oshun may flood Earth or destroy crops by withholding her waters, thereby causing massive droughts. In one myth, Oshun is incensed by her devotees and sends down rain, nearly flooding the world. Yet once she has been appeased, Oshun saves Earth from destruction by calling back the waters. Oshun is the orisha of the river. Her devotees leave her offerings and perform ceremonies at bodies of fresh water such as rivers, streams and canals. She is associated with the colors white, yellow, gold, and sometimes coral.
Living Spirit Dolls
Spirit Dolls are created for the purpose of giving a helping spirit a body to inhabit and set its intention to produce the desired magickal outcome. These spirits are also called “magickal servitors”, not because they are enslaved, but because they are brought into existence to achieve a purpose as set by the Bruja. They are made for all purposes, such as drawing a lover, gaining wealth, protection from negative forces, healing, and much more.
There have been a lot of horror movies made based on this magickal practice. Those movies are based on ignorance driven by Hollywood’s perception of Vodou and Witchcraft. My dolls are made with love and light and will be inhabited by an elemental spirit that will work for you to achieve your goal. This form of magic originates from the Congo people in Africa who came to the Americas during the transatlantic slave trade.
It is important to remember that the doll is inhabited by a living spirit. Offerings of flowers, incense, cologne, or liquor may be given to a doll to feed its energy one a week. Spirits need love and light to stay healthy and active, never neglect taking care of your doll or the spirit may become sad or upset and will leave. It might leave after it accomplishes the mission set forth by the Bruja. This a spirit companion that is created for you to suit your magickal needs. When you choose the doll you want to buy I will “prepare her” or “fix” her by invoking a spirit to live in her. She will be filled with all the proper ingredients to accomplish the spirit’s task. If you create a good relationship with the spirit and keep her taken care of the spirit might become a guardian spirit to you and stay with you and your family for generations.
