Prayer to Oyá yansa

Oyá Yansa is one of the most powerful orishas in the Yoruba pantheon., owner of the Centella, the one that rides the winds and provides us with oxygen to keep us alive.

We call upon the mother of eggunes and brave warrior in times of greatest need, requesting her protection against all danger, it is she who saves us from the worst enemies, from the darkness and evil of other human beings.

Goddess of thunder, lightning, tornadoes, winds, and hurricanes, who brings calm after fierce storms.

Oyá it is impetuous and is in charge of bringing rapid changes, which helps us in our internal and external transformations.

If we are going to go through a stage of sudden changes in our lives, it is always good to rely on the strength and determination of our mother. Oyá.

Why should we trust in the great power of the Goddess Oyá?

What do we ask of the Warrior Queen Oyá?

Because of the great ashé and power of this goddess, we call upon the Queen of the Centella to ask her for strength, leadership, authority, courage, justice, and protection in natural disasters.

We venerate her in ancestor worship, in moments of pain, and we ask for her powerful protection always against threats, illness, dangers and injustices.

Oyá she is protective and fundamentally comes to the aid of women who are leaders, with whom she shares her strength and vigour.

In Yoruba legends, the goddess always faced her enemies as just another warrior, with strength and impetuosity, so she recognizes the ability of women to function in today's society and supports them, giving them her immense guidance and protection.

But we must always bear in mind that Oyá she must be treated with respect and care and we should only go to her with honest intentions, as well as showing a lot of faith and trust.

Our prayers for the Queen of the Centella must contain positive requests and we must never request evil for anyone.

Thus, we will know that Oyá Yansa is a powerful ally that we can turn to at any time and in any situation, however difficult it may be.

A Oyá we entrust ourselves with faith and love:

However, he also likes his devotees to be grateful and show their affection.

And although we can ask him, thank him and beg him anywhere we want, we must take the time to go and thank him. Oyá from his temple, the cemetery.

There we invoke her and speak to her like a mother, with great devotion and faith, thanking her for all the good things she has brought into our lives.

Let us remember that, among his offerings, Oyá loves finding shea butter. He also loves aubergines, grape wine, grapes, gin, rum, cola nuts, rooster, chicken, porridge, fruit, and fish.

When we go to pray to her, we can also present these offerings to her as a thank you to show the goddess our trust and love.

So we pray with this prayer to Oyá Yansa, to thank you
