Luisah Teish on the archetype of Oshun.
This is an outtake from an interview with Luisah Teish for the film “Changing of the Gods.”
A groundbreaking new film by Kenny Ausubel & Louie Schwartzberg, featuring John Cleese, based on the work of Richard Tarnas.
The world is experiencing a revolutionary transformation. Change is in the air. Epic change. Are larger forces helping to orchestrate this present moment? And do we each have a unique role to play?
Changing of the Gods: Planetary and Human Revolutions is “the greatest story never told”: a breakthrough feature documentary and work of cinematic art with the power to shift the course of history.
With your help this film could change the direction of our whole planet. Are you ready?
Is today’s crisis a turning point into a new paradigm born of a fundamentally different cosmological vision? Is a powerful transformation of our civilization’s worldview the gateway to our survival and flourishing as a species? What does that emerging worldview look like?
In stylized interviews, we visit with an astonishing circle of wisdom keepers, great visionary activists and scientists of our time. They reflect on the emerging worldview and the arc of history that has brought us to this critical moment.

I absolutely adore this story! It is seemingly so simple, but the symbolism and the connections and meanings are deep and highly relevant. It is so moving that sweet water is connected to love, and I can see how the corruption of our fresh water signals the loss of love and also how to remedy this. Not an easy thing, but I believe that we need to pay more heed to Oshun. Thank you Luisah!! <3 40 Jay Atkinson Jay Atkinson1 year ago Very powerful and told so eloquently by this beautiful Divine woman, herself... thank you so very much...

They will respect the power of the divine feminine 🌻🍯💛 7 MiroslavGrosser MiroslavGrosser1 year ago oh wow ... sooo touching 2 Just Me Just Me11 months ago (edited) Thank you. Beautiful story. This takes me in the story where this beautiful woman is secretly hated by all, ignored, and basically treated like trash. No matter what she did for you, your family or the community, boyfriend (s) stolen by witchcraft, still ignored..., the list can go on for days. One day, a party was given in the community--for this particular community. And for hours the party was dead!! No action!!! No lights!!! People angry at one another for no reason. ... And in-walks this beautiful woman that was secretly hated by so many. Yes, Oshun crashed the party!!!!! The place illuminated. And The gossip started; The sweet water flowed and they never knew .... "Hey, that is the woman who I as (laundry worker) would not allow her to place her cart in an empty area at 6:30 a.m. where there was no one else there. But this is the same woman who sweetened me and helped me get insurance to treat her diabetes." Update: i have seen the woman from time to time, she have replied in a nice way. "Hey, that's my EX, we separated (with a bigggg smile) but I can't even remember why. "I do however remember when I was laying in a hospital bed-diagnosed with heart disease, and she as the only one who was able to pay for my meds. I also remember when my electrolytes was low--i was in a fetal position in pain--and she brought me banana draped in honey and my pain went away. I was discharged a few days later". "No more heart disease". Update: dude is calling because he has diabetes he is still with her; SMBB. "Hey, that's the woman who i go to when I need to feed my children and "I am dead Broke". And yes, she took care of my child real good." Or Hey, when i did witchcraft to you, I was a kid... Oh really, your grandmother , mother in-law, and sister in-law were kids too? "Anyway, we are adults now; but can you help my teen daughter who is teenage a prostitute? " Or, five months free rent meant nothing. .... I still want to attack you-spiritually. Just because. LOL. Dear Mother Oshun? Help us. Please. 6 Increased Standards Increased Standards4 months ago Beautiful story.

The Milky Way contours can be observed as a crescent figure vaulting on the night Sky, seemingly revolving around the Earth celestial poles as seen here - http://www.native-science.net/MilkyWay.MotherGoddess.htm - who represents the white Milky Way (River) contours on the southern hemisphere, hence the Oshun Goddess "watery attributes"- The Milky Way and its appearances are directly connected to the numerous cultural Stories of Creation all over the World and the tellings are concrete cosmological knowledge of the Creation. (This said without myself being a creationist).

The female goddess has been ignored and men have taken the sacred seats of women. They have taken away the balance and respect due to women. 6 Sobande Sobande1 month ago Yeye Luisah Teish is a High Priestess of Oshun, she teaches a magnificent 24 month program.
