qualities into your life?
Everything you do to "pull together"
will help enlarge the influence of Isis.
Some suggestions follow:
Remember that committed relationships,
like that of Isis and Osiris, often involve a lot of work. Allot time for togetherness,
and give your full attention. Listen not only with your head, but also with a loving
Practice letting your head rule your heart! The Isis archetype represents self-government. In the midst of an argument, when you feel yourself beginning to lose control, remind yourself to listen to the wise voice of Isis counseling you to stop and think before you let your emotions take over. Consider the effect your words will have, and be sure they will express your viewpoint in the clearest, most useful way. Say "I really would like . . . " rather than "You ought to . . " and your message will be more well received.
Build yourself a throne! All of us could
use an extra chair at times, so why not find a wooden chair (a thrift store
"find" will do) and paint it in the colors of Isis, using stencils to embellish
it with an Egyptian motif.
Invoke the "Shield of Isis" to protect you and
give you self-confidence when you confront a situation that triggers your fears. Imagine
that you are enveloped by a sphere of golden light. Say the words "I call on the
Light of Isis and the power of Isis to protect me and mine. The goddess Isis battles
for me, and she will overcome."
If you just aren't "the crying type", arrange to have yourself a "pity party" every once in a while. Crying can actually help release pent-up emotional tensions and keep you "pulled together". Plan for a time when you'll be uninterrupted and watch a sad movie, bring out the photos and letters from a "lost love", and cry enough cleansing tears to "flood the river Nile". Then close your ritual with a cleansing shower to wash those tears away.
Don't stay disconnected. Make a real effort to reconnect with someone you've lost touch with over time. The internet makes it easy to locate the friends we've lost.
The goddess Isis was known as the Great Mother. Reach out and touch your mother, the one who gave you life.
