If you can’t swim or are afraid of water, you may still petition Yemaya.
Sit down in the sand at the waterline.
As the waves come in, greet them with your hands, gather up the water from the waves, and toss some over your head, some over your body.
Throw seven white roses to Yemaya.
Come out of the water without turning your back to the ocean. Let the candles burn out.
