Description

Yemoja/Olokun is the name is the name of two spiritual forces in the West African religious tradition called “Ifa”. The word Yemoja is an elision of the Yoruba Oriki (praise name ) ” Yeye mo oja “, which means ” Mother of Fish”. The word “Olukun” is a contraction of Olohun meaning “owner”, and “okun” meaning “ocean”. Both of these words are the names given to describe a complex convergence of Spiritual Forces that are key elements in the Ifa concept of fertility. Those Spritual Forces that form the foundation of Yemoja and Olokun’s role in the Spirit Realm relate to the relationship between water and birth.
