Title: Ancestral Water Spirits
Post by: Tha Oracle on March 05, 2009, 05:12:38 am
Our African Ancestors, knowing that we are born from the watery maternal womb, also
believe that we emanated from the cosmic womb.Stories have been passed down through variousAfrican traditions regarding the water and our connectedness to it. The concept of "mermaids" originated from our African Ancestral Water Spirits.

African Water Spirits (Guardians, Orisha, Loa, etc.) are as multi-faceted as the various formsof water, and are known by many names:
Nu. Nut. Tefnut. Mu. Meh Urt. Djehuti. Hapi. Heqet. Het Heru. Nefertum. Ua (Asar). Uati (Ast).
Rennu (Heru). Satet. Iem Akhu. Iem Udja. Yemoja. Yemaya. Olokun. Oshun. Oxala.
Obatala/Yemmu. Oya. Nommo. Denzu. Mweru. La Sirčne. Simbi. Cymbee. Erzulie. Agwe.
Damballa Wedo. Aida Wedo. La Baleine. Gran Ibo. Madame La Lune. Mamaissii. Mama
Tchamba. Madame Poisson. Mamba Muntu. Mami Wata. Mae de Agua. Agbe. Naete.
Amakhosi. Chitapo. Nakamwale. Bapuka. Itoshi. Nyaminyami. Maloa. Lengolengole. Funkwe.
Nsanguni. Solomoni. Chilengwa. Sung'unyi. Mulombe. Namulolobwe. Nyaminyami.
Inkosazana. Amandlozi. Enjusu. Njusu. Njuzu. Mambokadze. And yes, Ancestor Harriet
Tubman.

Although the names differ, all Ancestral Water Spirits of Light (Iem Akhu) share the common
purpose of driving us toward living in the highest element of ourselves by encouraging us to
face the darkest aspects of our beings. They only choose to work with those who are strong in
character and humble in spirit in order to develop them into divine shamanic vessels for
spiritual leadership.

Water Spirits are extremely protective of their children (those who are born with water attributes
and called to service). Woe unto the person who messes with a Water Child! Likewise, woe
unto the Water Child who takes his/her privileges for granted.

Water Spirits often communicate through dreams. If you have difficulty receiving dream
messages place a clean pan or bowl of clear water under your bed or near your head. Give
thanks for all messages received. Also pay close attention to messages when connected to
water via baths, showers, dish washing, walking in the rain, putting your feet in a stream, a
pond...
It is believed that Ancient Ancestral Spirits like Djehuti and Gran Ibo, govern lakes, ponds,
pools, and swamps because they are still water. Truly, still waters run deep. Deep knowledge
also comes from Spirits who govern the ocean depths, like Olokun. More vibrant energy
comes from the ocean's surface, rivers, streams, waterfalls, and springs. Their numerous
rulers include Nu, Ast, Yemoja, Erzulie, Njusu . They are referred to as "living water," although
all water is vital and life sustaining.

When pouring libation, give thanks to the African Water Spirits of Light who have paved the way
for us. Pray for all of the Water shamans, priests, and priestesses in your bloodline known
and unknown. Call upon those in your River of Ancestors who are highly evolved to give you
counsel based on the wisdom they are anxious to share.
