Kentucky Ayahuasca - Mother Aya found Worldwide! The Future is Female!
Mother Aya imparted to me in a very intense journey that she has been here since the begining of time as we know it. Mother pleaded with me to take her to those that felt her gentle calling.
What follows is my research of her subtle foot prints world wide.
Aya (in Armenian language aya means great grandmother) was the mother of chastity, as well as the benefactress of the whole human race. Through her the Armenian land exists, from her it draws its life; she is the glory of our nation and its protectress, and for her the ancient Armenians felt intense love and adoration.
One of her symbols is water… In ancient times the Armenians felt a certain veneration towards water in motion, which they fear to pollute. Many rivers and springs were sacred, and endowed with beneficent virtues.
The sources of the Euphrates and Tigris received and still receive worship. Sacred cities were built around the river Araxes and its tributaries. Even now there are many sacred springs with healing power, usually called “the springs of light”.
The gods of the Mesopotamian region were by no means uniform in name, power, provenance or status in the hierarchy. Mesopotamian culture varied from region to region, from city-state to city-state and, because of this, Marduk should not be regarded as King of the Gods in the same way Zeus ruled in Greece. While Marduk was venerated highly in Babylon, Enlil held that place in Sumer.
It should also be noted that the English word 'demon', understood as an evil spirit, derives from the Greek word 'daimon' which meant, simply, 'spirit' and that many of the supernatural entities of the Mesopotamian pantheondesignated as 'demons' were not necessarily evil.
AJA - The Akkadian goddess of the dawn, consort to Shamash. She was associated with youth, sexual love and marriage and was referred to as `The Bride'. Aja (also known as Aya) developed from the more ancient and very popular Sherida of the Sumerians.
Sherida is one of the oldest Mesopotamian gods, attested in inscriptions from pre-Sargonic times, her name (as "Aya") was a popular personal name during the Ur III period (21st-20th century BCE), making her among the oldest Semitic deities known in the region.:173 As the Sumerian pantheon formalized, Utu became the primary sun god,:173 and Sherida was syncretized into a subordinate role as an aspect of the sun alongside other less powerful solar deities (c.f. Ninurta) and took on the role of Utu's consort.
When the Semitic Akkadians moved into Mesopotamia, their pantheon became syncretized to the Sumerian. Inanna to Ishtar, Nanna to Sin, Utu to Shamash, etc. The minor Mesopotamian sun goddess Aya became syncretized into Sherida during this process. The goddess Aya in this aspect appears to have had wide currency among Semitic peoples, as she is mentioned in god-lists in Ugarit and shows up in personal names in the Bible (Gen 36:24, 2 Sam 3:7, 1 Chr 7:28).
In Turkish-Altaic mythology, Aya symbolizes the good soul. All the seventeen types of benevolent angels who live in the sky are also called Ayas. They are seen as the source of abundance, creativity and in the earth. The origin of the word comes from Ay ("moon" in Turkish). Ayaçı means "creative soul". In the mythology of Yakut Turks, Siberia Aya transforms into Abası, symbolizing the same angels. Yürüng Aya Toron (the white creative soul, sun) was believed to be the creator of the Aya's and the universe. The best foods are given to Aya during Isıah (birthday of the nature) Festivals.
Mother Aya is in America today, when she calls you will come.
