Initiation: “Spiritual Testing Of Ra And The Lady Isis”

“When you are being spiritually initiated into the mysteries of light, love and power, there are moments of deep challenge. The key is to find the light within the challenge – the learning, growth or wisdom that can be summoned to turn the challenge into an opportunity for healing. Whilst the scorching heat of Ra seeks to burn through any resistance, the Lady Isis with compassion and cleverness will protect you from burning and instead enable you to be nourished and grow from the Light of Ra. Let Isis help you pass the test of intense growth as you thrive with new life.”

“For advanced aspirants on the path, initiation will occur at various stages. Sometimes your entire life will feel like an initiation, at other times specific areas will be flowing easily whilst others are deeply challenging. This Oracle comes as confirmation that you are not needlessly suffering. If you can find the light within the struggles, tests or challenges that face you now, you will experience breakthrough healing.

It is the almost unbearable solar fire of Ra that can cleanse the Soul of wounds and the love, compassion and intelligence of Isis that can temper the heat of Ra and stop it from burning and drying you out, or else you would be left with nothing but emptiness, anger, bitterness and despair in your heart! These are not meant to be the outcomes of life’s challenges! Rather than losing love and hope through the challenges of life, the Initiate understands all aspects of life are growth opportunities in various states of disguise, waiting to be discovered.

As an Initiate, this Oracle urges you to honour life as a gift and treat any challenge or pressure as a way for you to grow into a brighter and purer light capable of great spiritual service on this planet. That spiritual service includes growing an ability to be able to love freely and beyond limits, to love with courage and faith.

In fact initiation for your now, dear one, is an opening to new levels of power and peace, self-possession and love. There are such sweet fruits waiting for you at the top of the tree you are currently climbing. It may seem as though you are in barren land at times with little hope, nourishment or encouragement, yet your spiritual oasis is not far away! The Lady Isis and the Power of Ra together are helping you grow. Stay focused on the Lady and Her love for you and you shall pass through the desert of Initiation unharmed and deeply transformed.”

Sometimes along the path of awakening, expansion and enlightenment, we come to a crossroads, a challenge, or a test. It can feel like we have hit a wall; that we just can’t go any farther. It feels as if we have been stripped down, naked and vulnerable and raw. Maybe it even feels like everyone is against us; or it feels like we are completely isolated and alone.

And so we stand at the crossroads, weighing our options. Do we turn back to what we know? No, it’s too late for that now, we have long passed the point of no return. Do we hunker down and try to weather the storm? Yes, that is a possibility, yet our heart and Soul feels restless; there has been too much stagnation of late. Our only choice is to persevere. It’s scary and we can’t see the end, we can’t see our destination and we don’t even know at this point if it is there in front of us, or if it is all an illusion.

So we dig down deep. Faith is the only option. We move forward with absolute conviction that we are going in the right directions. It may take a little longer than expected. There may be a few more bumps in the road. Things may not look how we expected them to look. But we keep going. We have faith.

Faith in ourselves, faith in the Universe. Faith in the whisperings of our heart.

And we move forward fearlessly.

And in doing so,

We are initiated.

And so it is

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Angel Therapy Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Goddess

Goddess: “Express your Divine feminine energy, embracing its magical intuition and nurturing qualities.”

This card speaks of a need for sacred female energy, which brings gifts such as intuition, nurturing, and artistic expression. Perhaps you have been spending too much time thinking or engaging in creatively void work. If so, then this card is your signal to move your body in dance; and express your intuitive, artistic and nurturing side.

You are also guided to call on benevolent female deities for help with the situation you are inquiring about. You can call upon Lakshmi, the beloved Hindu goddess who helps with abundance; Brigit, the Celtic goddess  of healing and courage; Mother Mary, the saint who guides our children; Athena, the Grecian goddess of wisdom; the Egyptian goddess Isis, who helps women juggle home and family; or any of the thousands of other trustworthy and sacred feminine deities”

Action Steps:
“Within every woman are three parts of the goddess: Maiden (inner child, at times pure and at other times adventurous or bold); Mother (nurturing qualities); and Matriarch (the teacher). Men have analogous inner qualities of the Lad, the Dad, and the Patriarch. It is important to express each of these three parts daily. This helps to balance playfulness with work and relationships. Spend time each day expressing all three characteristics, and notice how much more energized and balanced you feel.”

It is time to connect to one of the most powerful aspects of the female: the Divine Feminine. This is your inner wisdom and personal strength and power in all that is feminine. Archangel Ariel can help you strengthen this connection, call on her to help you access your inner Lioness, as she is “The Lioness of God.” Inner strength and power is synonymous with courage, confidence and self-esteem; it is not a power struggle or a misuse of power. It is believing in yourself, seeing your unique gifts and having the self-confidence to accept yourself fully as a beautiful woman, inside and out. If you have trouble seeing your inner and outer beauty, call on Archangel Jophiel to show you your inner light. Ask Jophiel to help you see the beauty in all things, starting from within.” *

~ By Doreen Virtue

Power. Personal Power. Empowerment. Courage, strength and commitment to yourself and to your dreams. Focus and intention and determination. Fueled with love, devotion and perseverance. To you. To the self. Then radiating out to something bigger. The Earth herself, the All, the greatest and Highest Good.

It is nice to have everyone around you happy, but it is not your job to bring this happiness to them. You didn’t come here as a people pleaser, you came here to create a very specific reality which will in turn benefit all. There’s a difference.

Creation and manifestation; the birth of something new. Divine Feminine warrior wisdom and strength. Releasing the struggle, stepping beyond the stereotypes of what’s expected of us. Stopping living for others and focusing our energy on ourselves and our dreams. Shrugging off the oppression, the programming. Not ignoring our duties or responsibilities, particularly to our loved ones or children, but releasing what is no longer necessary and standing true.

Goddess energy. Honouring our rhythms and cycles. Using our energy wisely. Honoring the Great Mother and all of her creations. Becoming their fierce protectors as we create a life which upholds the Cosmic Laws. This wisdom is in you already, in your bones and your blood and your DNA. Male or female, we all carry it. It’s time to tap in and bring it forth.

Namaste

Isis ~ Protection

Published October 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Isis ~ Protection, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Isis ~ Protection, from the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Isis ~ Protection: “You are loved and protected even through the most difficult of trials. This is a time for healing. You need mothering or to use your mothering energy. Magic is happening!”

“Isis is the daughter of the sky goddess, Nuit, and the earth god, Geb. As the wife of Osiris, she is one of the most enduring symbols of loving motherhood, dedicated wifehood, and feminine protective energy. Isis’s love and devotion to Osiris after his brother Set killed and dismembered him is a central story is the mythology of the ancient Egyptians.

The storm god, Set, became jealous of Osiris and killed him. In his rage, Set dismembered the body, hiding the pieces so that Osiris could not be resurrected. When Isis discovered that her husband had been murdered, her grief was immense – some say her tears triggered the Nile’s annual flood. Not satisfied that her great love would never attain eternal life, Isis traveled the earth looking for the pieces of Osiris. She found him piece by piece. Advised by the god of knowledge, Thoth, she cast a powerful spell, which bought her husband back to life long enough for her to conceive a son, Horus. Osiris retreated back into the underworld, where he ruled from then on.

As a result of her role assisting the newly formed Lord of the Dead, Isis became a protectress of the dead. Many sarcophagi featured her image with mighty outstretched wings extending her energy and protecting the body. As the mother of Horus, she is often depicted breastfeeding him or cradling him lovingly, again symbols of feminine protection and influence.

The cult of Isis spread all over Egypt and extended into Greece, Italy, and surrounding areas. Major temples were constructed in her honour on Philae and as far away as Delos in Greece. Priestesses of Isis were known for their haling skills.

Although the spread of Christianity halted worship of Isis, it is easy to see how she was appropriated by the Christian religion in the form of Mother Mary. The iconic poses of Mary, the mother of Christ, are incredibly similar to images of Isis and Horus.

When you are fearful or in need of protection, call upon this great goddess. Ask for her help when you feel the eyes of judgment on you, when you need some extra armor, or when you feel particularly vulnerable. Allow her wings to surround you and protect you. (*Please note: If you are feeling physically threatened in any way, it is important that you find someone you trust to help you. Living with the real threat of physical violence is unhealthy, and others can help you to put a stop to it.)”

Shadow Side: “Even though Isis used all her skills to find and revive Osiris, she could not keep him alive and with her forever, and he retreated and became the god of the underworld. Sometimes, no matter how much we may try to protect someone, things do not turn out as we wish. You may see a sibling exhibiting what you see as poor or destructive behaviour or a friend acting in wild ways that seem out of character and try to protect that person – only to have your opinion or help rejected. While we may mean well, and even be right, people need to learn life’s lessons on their own. It may well be a karmic situation that is resolving itself or a key life skill that someone is learning while we watch. (In the case of behaviour that is harmful to themselves or others, you should inform someone else you trust to help resolve the situation.)”

Symbols: “Ankh, outstretched wings, knot of Isis (tyet), throne hieroglyphic symbol, roses.”

Invocation: “When you need protection or feel someone in your life could use a little extra too, you can invoke Isis to help. You will need some rose petals, some rose incense on a charcoal, and a dark pink or gold candle.
Take a salt bath or shower to cleanse yourself. Relax. Light the candle and say:

Mother Isis, daughter of the infinite Nuit, daughter of the
earth-rich Geb,
Wife of Osiris, whom you healed and gave life to,
Stretch your wings around me!
I ask for your protection.”

Now light the rose incense. Allow the smoke to rise and say:

As you watch above all, as you nourish your children,
I humbly ask for your love and protection.

Now tell Isis what your needs are. Be truthful and feel all you need to feel.

Know that Isis is compassionate and powerful. Imagine her wrapping her wings around you, giving you love and energy. Say:

I am not afraid. You are with me, Goddess.

Stay in her loving embrace as long as you need to. Take your time.
When you are ready, or when Isis unfolds her wings, give her thanks. Know that she is watching over you and will respond.
Repeat this invocation when you need to.”

~ By Stacey Demarco

Sometimes the world feels like a scary place. So much is going on, so much is beyond our control. We try to live our lives the best we can amongst the chaos. We send prayers, we send love. We try to be of service. We open our hearts and we put ourselves out there, and yet it can feel sometimes that we are so very vulnerable. That we are unprotected. That there is just so much to fear.

When we feel like this we sometimes just need an extra layer of protection. We need to know that we are safe, no matter what happens. In what can feel like perilous times, we want a powerful warrior on our side. Goddess Isis can help us with this, (as can Archangel Michael of course).

See the Goddess as she appears in the image above; totally fearless, always ready and willing to take on anything; particularly what scares you right now. Consider carrying or placing an Ankh beside your bed or under your pillow; one that you have drawn yourself is fine. You can also get an Ankh to wear as a symbol of protection and life.

Know that you are protected and that it is safe to get back out there and do what you have to do, the Goddess by your side. Know that you also have a spark of her divine warrior energy and that you can always summon this powerful energy to get you through challenging or difficult times.

Namaste

Horus: “Cosmic Gateway”

“Your thoughts are magnetic and powerful. Miraculous changes are occurring.”

About Horus: “Horus is the Egyptian eagle headed god and son/twin flame of the goddess Isis. He is known for his foresight, psychic awareness and ability to travel between the worlds. He can help us move into the cosmos with our mind, meditations and prayers so that we can harness the natural magic that surrounds us. He was known for ritual magic in the past, and now he helps to create pockets of energy in the world where we can access light, wisdom and insight. If you are seeing the symbol of an eye appearing around you, know that Horus is asking you to become aware of how you are influencing the energy around you, and how in turn the energy is influencing you.”

Extended Message From Horus: “You are connected to the Universe and have the ability to manifest miraculous experiences. Your thoughts, words and actions are like magnets drawing the energy that creates and cultivates your world. You have a stellar gateway chakra above your hear, a vortex of energy that is influenced by our own energy. You can place ideas into this vortex to create what you are seeking. The Universe also offers you guidance, abundance, support and healing based on your capacity to connect to it and accept it. You have a real opportunity to further that connection now by sending prayers and intentions our into the cosmos.”*

~ By Kyle Gray

We are standing at a gateway; tomorrow is the full moon in Leo, and it is the first eclipse of the year. There are powerful energies here and we are being asked to see our own power when dealing with them. The most important lines above are… “so that we can harness the natural magic that surrounds us” … “he helps to create pockets of energy in the world where we can access light, wisdom and insight”… “You can place ideas into this vortex to create what you are seeking” and “You have a real opportunity to further that connection now by sending prayers and intentions our into the cosmos.” Read these lines carefully. This is an amazing opportunity to put your creative manifestation powers to work. What are you creating with your thoughts, feelings, emotions and intentions?

Think of yourself as a great sorceress or sorcerer. Your magic spell is your thought, your special ingredient is your emotion, your magic wand is your focused intention. What will you place in your Stellar Gateway? What will you invite into your life? How can you harness all of your magical ability and create the miraculous life you are wishing to create?

You are the magic.

Namaste

Osiris

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Osiris, from The Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

Osiris: “Regeneration ~ Transmutation ~ Beauty”

“Osiris is the enlightened ruler and husband of Isis who was murdered by his brother, Set. Through the love and magical practices of Isis, he was revived sufficiently to transmit to her the seed of Horus. He had previously fathered Anubis with Isis’s sister, Nephthys.

In Egyptian mystery teachings, all beings strive to awaken as Osiris. The purpose of scriptures such as the Egyptian Book of The Dead, which is actually the Book of Coming Forth by Day, is to guide souls through the transitions of death, as well as the transitions of the shamanic rites of passage through death and the Underworld.

Although Osiris has long been associated with death and called the Lord of the Underworld, it is more appropriate to acknowledge him here as the archetypal regenerative principle that transmutes outworn, deteriorating form into its renewed, shining manifestation of beauty. Osiris can be found in the primordial, watery deep, and in the river itself. He invites us to let go and rest upon his earthly green chest as he wraps his supportive arms around our bodies and turns us into that which we are in the process of becoming.

If you have chosen this card, you have been asked to enter deeply into the process of transmutation and regeneration. You are being given the opportunity to experience death of the old consciously and to embrace the beauty that is possible for each of us to experience as we are reborn into the next level of our potential.

Things are changing in your world, and it can be an exciting time. Regardless of what is happening around you, take time to be quiet, and listen for the whispers from Osiris that come from the deepest recesses of your being. He will speak to you of possibilities, potential, and beauty. Feel the stirrings of regeneration within you when you commune with him.”*

~ by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

It’s up to us whether we let change knock us down or lift us up. It can be terrifying, our fears reducing us to feeling like children, searching for help and advice with every step. Or we can gather our strength and decide to shift our perspective and embrace change with grace and ease, trusting in the Universe that everything will work for the highest good of all.

Surrender to the change and find peace in the moment. No matter how chaotic your world seems right now, take some time to be outside and breathe fresh air. Communicate with Mother Gaia, put your spine against a big, supportive tree. Ask for signs from your Animal Spirit Guides. Eke out a few minutes of silent contemplation or meditation every day. Incorporate yoga and deep breathing. These simple measures will help you to retain your balance and find your center not matter what is happening around you, it just might help you to stay sane in the eye of the storm.

Most importantly, release any and all old, limiting thought patterns and need to control.

Change is in the works and cannot be stopped. 

However, it can be calmly navigated.

Moment by moment.

Breath by breath.

Namaste

Dee
