Ideas for honoring Oshun, Orisha of Love, wealth, and beauty:
-learn the art of simple cowrie divination
I bow to Oshun ...
There is no place where it is not known that Oshun is as powerful as a king
She dances and takes the crown
She dances without asking ...
She arrives and trouble is appeased
She shakes her bracelets to come to dance
She dances in the depths of richness
The water sounds like the bracelets of Oshun
We call her and she answers with wisdom
She can do what the doctor can't
The Goddess who heals with cold water
We can stay in the world without fear.
Lovingly, with laughter and joy Oshun calls us to The Dance ...
