Today I bring you a spell invoking Yemaja, the African Yourba Goddess of mothers, children, the rivers and the sea. Yemaja has traveled the world and resides in every place that slaves once lived.

Yemaja – Baby Blessing Candle Spell
This spell is best performed during the night of the Full Moon. Spells to bring energy in are done at this time because the energy of the moon helps move things into your life.
Use a pin to carve a river into the candle holding in your mind the life giving and protective properties of the flowing waters governed by Lady Yemaja. You can add other symbols or words to increase the directedness and power of the spell.
Hold the candle between the palms of your hands and direct all of your energy into the candle. Using silver (if possible) or blue ink, write the name of the child and words that describe how their life should be (i.e. loved, strong, protected, treasured) out a petition paper. Light the candle, burn the petition paper in the candle flame and say (aloud or to yourself):
O Yemaja, mother and protectors, guardian of the waters and life;
Guard (Child’s name) against harm and illness.
Watch over him/her with every step he/she takes.
Let your life giving waters always flow through them.If possible, focus and meditate on your desires until the candle is almost burned out. Combine the ashes and left over wax together and offer it to a stream near your home or bury it in the earth as close to your home as possible.
