Living as a cyclical being in a non-cyclical world

Share this:

 

Many of us honour the cycles of the seasons and the moon. As women, we can also allow ourselves to be consciously worked by our inner cycles, uncovering the body wisdom that ripens through the sacred gift of menstruality. 

To live cyclically, attuned to the rhythms of life and the waxing and waning of our energy, is to live sustainably. Just as on an environmental level we’ve seen the dire consequences of taking from the earth regardless of the soil’s need to lie fallow and replenish, and of valuing economic growth above respect for the planet, so too we cannot expect our bodies and minds to keep going without listening to the need to slow down, stop, and rest at times. 

The consequences of driving ourselves on throughout the month, no matter how we feel? Fatigue, depression, rage, pain and illness. By working with each different phase of the cycle and listening deeply to what it wants to unfold in us, we invite in more wellbeing and healing and start to thrive. 

Looking around, however, we see a world that is structured to function the same way, day in, day out, regardless of our internal rhythms. Modelled on patriarchal values that ignore the reality of most women, consistent productivity is the gold standard for our capitalist society, and if we’re not able to keep up, we can lose our clout at work. If you’re a mother, dropping the ball often just doesn’t feel like an option. 

 

So what can we do? 

First, begin to track your menstrual cycle. If you no longer menstruate or currently don’t have a menstrual cycle, you can track your emotional and physical changes in accordance with the moon’s movements. While each woman is unique, there are general ‘maps’ that can help us to understand the shifts at different times of the month.

Keep a diary to log how you feel emotionally and physically on each day of your cycle. Look for patterns of differences between the two ‘poles’ of ovulation and menstruation. In ‘Winter’, the ‘menstrual zone’, it’s ideal to take it slow, retreat and receive vision and direction for your life and community. Emerging out of Winter into the ‘spring’ of pre-ovulation, it’s a chance to be playful and experiment with new ideas. 

The energy rises until ovulation, or ‘Summer’, when you can be highly motivated and often ecstatic, with plenty of energy for work, play and pleasure. Pre-menstrual time, or ‘Autumn’, is when we strip away illusions about ourselves, others and our life – not so comfortable, but also a ‘harvesting’ of wisdom when you can channel your warrior spirit in the service of truth-telling. 

By working with these tendencies, instead of holding ourselves to the rigid consistency expected by the system, we harness the power of our ever-changing nature as women to become more aligned with our true desires and visions – and also more productive over time, with the things that truly matter. 

Living cyclically is a revolution from the inside out. Once you are working consciously with your cycle, you can start to speak about your cycle to others. This not only empowers other women but also normalises the concept so that eventually, it’s embedded in everyday consciousness. Already there are promising signs such as ‘period leave’ in certain companies. Educate your children about cyclical life at an age-appropriate level and they will be more likely to understand your need for more space at certain times. Plus, they’ll grow up thinking it is totally normal.

If you’re thinking, Rest all day when I bleed? Yeah right, give yourself what you can: for example, an hour at either end of the day to simply stop. Let go of all doing and simply be. Give your system the message to unwind and do its job of healing and repair. Gradually allow this small yet precious investment to expand into a full day of delicious rest and replenishment, or more. This will reap dividends for the rest of your cycle as you’ll be ‘powered up’ rather than running on empty.

Ask for help. When you know your bleeding time or natural energetic ebb, is approaching, get as many hands on deck as possible so that you can truly let go. You might get a friend or neighbour to have your children, delegate a few more tasks at work, or ask your partner to take on some household chores.

This takes courage and belief in yourself, and others may well require educating, but remember, you are working towards a world where we live in tune with our cycles, which benefits us all. 

With blessings,

Morgan

Today, when we speak of the mysteries of this or that, we usually are referring to something important, yet a bit vague, unknown, or ill understood: the mysteries of the origin of the universe, the mysteries of life, the mysteries of the human psyche.
Yet the Mysteries that have my attention right now are the ancient Mysteries of the Goddesses and Gods. And while it’s true that our understanding of these Mysteries is incomplete, somewhat vague, and much is indeed unknown, when the ancients themselves spoke of The Mysteries, they had something rather specific in mind.
To them, The Mysteries were initiatory ritual and the secrets of the Mysteries were secrets of ritual and personal experience of that ritual.”
   About the Mysteries of Isis by Isidora Forrest 

All of this – and more – is possible through our deep, immersive workshop, where you will reconnect to the divine source of the Isiac lineage and its wisdom. 

During the Initiation, you will … 

… Experience mystery rites that initiate you profoundly at each stage

… Witness a sense of pure rebirth and resurrection

… See and/or feel the touch of the Divine Mother and Father

… Be blessed by an alchemical union between Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine, as you experience what the universe intended for you.

Is this for you?

The Mysteries of Isis and Osiris have been practised since the Graeco-Roman Period. This Initiation is reserved for those who wish to connect and dedicate to the Goddess Isis (Aset) and her consort Osiris: our Divine Mother and Father, Queen and King in Egypt and in the heavenly realms.

The Initiation Rite is available to all ages, genders, and spiritual backgrounds.

Can I attend the Initiation alone?

Yes, absolutely. Although couples will get huge benefits from the process due to the dual nature of the Workshop, it is still a profound experience for solo participants.

Do I have to be devoted to Isis or Osiris to take part in the workshop?

Origin of the Blue Lotus

Share this:

 

In the ancient temples of Egypt, there is hardly a monument to be found that doesn’t prominently display the Blue Lotus flower. It’s seen everywhere on pillars, thrones, stone alters, papyrus scrolls, and on the ceremonial headdresses of pharaohs. When they opened Tutankhamun’s tomb, even King Tut’s mummy was covered in what has become known as the Sacred Lily of the Nile. Yet, oddly enough, if you look around Egypt today, it is rare to find this flower growing anywhere.

I was curious to know why the ancients cultivated special lakes and ponds of Blue Lotus and prized it above all other plants. When I asked modern-day Egyptians they told me the lotus flower, known as Nymphaea Caerulea or the Blue Water Lily, symbolized creation and rebirth as it emerged from its primordial waters to bloom once a year for only 3 days. The plant was associated with the sun-god Ra as the bringer of light and the embodiment of the “perfection of wisdom.”

 

When it was mentioned that the plant had medicinal properties, I went on a search. What I found was quite interesting. The Sacred Blue Lotus is a plant with psychoactive effects. A clearer picture was starting to form. I recalled seeing the plant on a few Egyptian wall depictions—some that looked suspiciously like nude party scenes.

The plant is actually a natural sedative. It contains small amounts of alkaloids highly similar to those used for sedation and anti-convulsant

purposes. For thousands of years, it was used by the ancient Egyptians as part of religious ceremonies to reach higher levels of consciousness and connect to the Divine. They would steep the Blue Lotus flowers in wine for several weeks and use it as a sacred sacrament. (They say it nullifies the negative effects of alcohol.)

Blue Lotus contains nuciferan (a natural anti-spasmodic) along with aporphine, which will give you feelings of calming euphoria. For that reason, it is a natural anti-anxiety and stress reliever. No wonder it was often used in ancient social gatherings. It has been reported to be useful as an aphrodisiac and to remedy erectile dysfunction (which might explain the ancient nude party scenes). Perhaps it’s a modern-day Viagra as well. On a more medicinal front, Blue Lotus is used to treat gastrointestinal problems, diarrhoea and dyspepsia and aid in sleep.  That’s quite a plant!

Users report that the plant’s calming effect is much like the drug Ecstasy (MDMA), while others report a mild stimulant-like effect with tingling sensations. Some have used Blue Lotus to help relieve depression by opening them to a greater examination of what led to their depression. With calming euphoria often comes insight—which is why the ancients prized Blue Lotus effects. It was believed that use would easily release fear and lead to increased states of cosmic connection and ultimate soul growth.

So important was the Blue Lotus that they dedicated the protection of this plant to the God Nefertem, son of Ptah and Sekhmet, who is portrayed as a beautiful young man with a Blue Lotus flower on his head or holding lotuses. During ancient times the plant was widely cultivated in temple lakes and along the Nile, then exported throughout the Mediterranean. This flower was revered in Greece as early as 550 BC, where the sacred sacrament of the Blue Lotus was re-introduced to the then newly formed religion of Isis and Serapis.

This magical elixir was concealed by the early Church for well over 1500 years. It’s true purpose long forgotten until interest re-emerged again in the mid-1800’s when archaeologists began asking questions. They too wondered why temple wall carvings showed Blue Lotus flowers laying over earthen jars. No one guessed it was to steep flowers in wine for mind-altering use. Some debated it might have inebriant properties, but no one put it to the test until a recent group of Egyptian archaeologists decided to measure the effects on two test subjects and see for themselves.

For those who are wondering, Blue Lotus is not a controlled substance. The cultivation, sale, and purchase of Nymphaea Caerulea is legal, but it cannot be sold for human consumption. There are three ways people have taken Blue Lotus: smoking it, brewed as tea, or in a tincture after steeping it in wine for several weeks. The full effects kick in after about 20-30 minutes. There are mild withdrawal symptoms from continued use, which tells me it has some addictive qualities. This is why the ancient Egyptians priests reserved its primary use for temple ceremonies, healing and communicating with the Gods.

For all the reasons above and because of our wonderful experience with the plant, we have decided to share the benefit and magic of blue lotus as part of a tea ceremony available at our temple upon request.

Divine Union

God and Goddess in Sacred Unity

The aspects of the Goddess Isis, Hathor, Sekhmet, Bastet are all different expressions of the One feminine consciousness.

This understanding now comes back to earth.

It helps men and women to awaken and to regain their true power and to become alive again. For the men it is a wake-up call to no longer suppress their feelings and to express them without fear of being ridiculed. For the woman it means they can now be in their truth without getting too masculine, they can be soft and powerful at the same time.

The divine child is a symbol of the completely balanced energies of masculine and feminine. So, Horus is a symbol for that, the child of Isis and Osiris, the symbol of divine balance. As a divine child of the Goddess, it is helpful for us to feel the presence of the divine child within us, it creates balance within ourselves and it allows the Goddess energy to flow through us.

Through our connection with the Goddess, we find our balance, spiritually, emotionally and physically. New preferences and new consciousness arise. Giving and receiving, action and reception are balanced.

We are here to keep this gate open for you to witness the unfolding of such consciousness and rebirth of the divine child within.

Duality in the Egyptian pantheon

Whilst dedication in service to the goddess consciousness, and to the cause of returning her to the rightful place of true recognition and balance, acknowledgement and devotion of her masculine partner is equally as important.

All Deities in Egypt have partners and children, to represent their power is strongest in unity.

There is no goddess standing alone without her husband or masculine equal.

They together represent balance and more often than not, complement each other.
There were times when the goddess was addressed and called upon for her unique attribute and quality. But even within that invocation, there is always a note or mention of her masculine partner.

Ra – Hathor
Nut – Geb
Osiris – Isis
Seth – Nephthys

Most ancient spells are written addressing them together or one as part of the other and vice versa.

“Thy young one in the Aten within the arm of your mother Hathor”
Adoration to Ra

“ Osiris stands upon his throne according to her word “
Him to Isis

They are together holding the transformative wisdom of the universe.

To acknowledge a Goddess’s devotion to her masculine counterpart is to accept and adore her fully

There was no inequality in the Egyptian pantheon and whilst some gods were less popular, their equal opposites were always just that, equal.

“No one shall disrespect the king in my presence”
Isis in the house of Seth

It is important that whilst we are actively working to return the goddess consciousness to our present world of patriarchy we do this with the vision of balance in mind.

To own our own power, we need to see the Unity in this Divine Duality.

No opposite can exist without the other… think about it.

They are not truly separate at all but are only two faces of the same  – just as with Goddess and God. The many are the One and the One is the many… all goddesses and Gods are of the source.

All life is from the same Divine Source and is it is Divine – being animated by the Spirit.

This new world we are now ready to create shall be better than the ones before.

We are not here to return a failed matriarchal consciousness we are here to restore her “the goddess”, into the feminine consciousness,
to her rightful place and whilst doing so, healing the wound of the masculine presence.

Resurrecting the dismembered king, who was once loved and adored, to now and once again be by her side.

Just as the Lady Isis goes through her journey full of difficulties and challenges to return the life of Osiris, out of pure love for her beloved and through him for all of us, in need of rebirth.

Goddess Healing Therapy

How does it work?

Goddess Healing works best at soul level to bring us into balance with our soul’s purpose.

The energy embodies high vibrations of Divine Consciousness. The issues we face in our lives form part of the eternal journey of the soul, through space and time. The healing invites us to open the doors of our heart to our inner knowing and authentic Self.

As we travel through life, we can get stuck in belief systems and habits losing our clarity to follow our path. The healing(s) open our awareness to see our life in a bigger perspective and to free ourselves from what no longer serves us.

In the healing, these high vibrational energies work with you at the soul level, empowering you to move into different directions in life. The healing is a useful pointer, to help you walk on your path, however, it is up to you to take the necessary steps. You might find that results are more long-lasting when you do your own personal work.

At the same time, there is a very physical outcome to Goddess Healing as it aims to bring a person’s body and spirit into a state of natural balance.

It addresses many levels at once: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, the energetic field and the chakras. The energy bodies are cleansed and revitalized with high vibrations, allowing the natural life-force energy to flow more freely through all the energy systems.

It is widely used to release fear-based traumas manifested in the body as chronic illness or pain.

As a Priestess of the goddess Aset, I am honoured to channel her healing energy and share this profound vibration with my clients.

I find this method most successful, therapeutic and effective. In the temple, all our therapies and methods are tested and practised by us on regular basis.
