What it takes to make it out of the fire...
We continue with the story of Isis. In the first part (Episode 14), we acknowledge who she was and that she had fallen in love with her brother, Osiris, and it was through the act of jealousy from her other brother, Set, that basically tore them apart. Set killed Osiris out of spite, leaving Isis without her beloved Osiris, devastated and lost.
In part 2 (Episode 15), we talk about how Isis began to really rage. She cut off her hair, disrobed, and fully allowed herself to feel the depth of her emotions. Once she was able to move through that, giving herself time to mourn, she was able to stand firm, be very clear and strong in her desires, and call in her true gift of resourcefulness to help her find Osiris.
We pick up her journey here in part 3.
Now that Isis has moved through her rage and is very clear about her mission - to find Osiris - she begins traveling the world looking for him.
She lands in a specific location where she embodies herself as a caretaker. She meets Queen Astarte, who doesn’t’ recognize her as a goddess. Isis introduces herself as a nursemaid and offers her services to the Queen, who has a young newborn prince.
This is where we begin to see Isis as a divine motherly creature. She loved this boy so much; she took such great care of him. She was in service to this child.
She loved him so much that she decided to make him a God. She was going to use her sorceress skills to place him in the fire to become immortal.
As she was placing him in the fire, the Queen runs in and grabs the child. Isis then reveals her true identity, but not before the transmutation process into God ended.
Let’s talk about this idea of being in the transmutation process; when you are going through deep transformation.
For many of us, what I notice is when we are in sacred practice, we begin to drop into our dreams, we get very clear about our desires, we create the sacred rituals that will hold it, and we tend to it everyday. We are really committed to this space of devotion and this place of trust.
But then, at some point, doubt creeps in. There comes a moment when we become frustrated and wonder if it is ever going to happen.
We desire immediate gratification. We wonder if it is misaligned. Maybe it’s not supposed to be, or maybe we are supposed to do something different, or redo it or start over.
Our mind takes over and we go down the rabbit hole of the “shoulds” and “woulds” and “this is wrong” and “there is another way, a better way.”
We stop the actual process of transmutation.
We go from being in the fire and slowly removing ourselves from it.
We become fully out of it; out of the fire. And we say, “That didn’t work; let’s try something else.”
Well, what if we didn’t give it enough time? What if, instead of second guessing ourselves, we trust that we are actually on the brink of true transformation?
We have gotten so impatient that we don’t know what it is like to sit and wait.
What if we waited and trusted and let of the expectation of how quickly it is supposed to come and how it is supposed to look?
What if we stay in the fire? Stay in it until we have burned it all down - the who we were when we entered - and transformed into who we need to be, and then risen out of the ashes?
We don’t do that very often. We don’t let the magic work itself.
So, dear sister, take a deep breath, grab my hand, and let’s enter the fire together.
Here’s how we will make it through the flames:
We create magic.
We call in our desires.
We practice staying in the sacred.
We trust, in total faith.
We allow ourselves to fully transform, even when it is uncomfortable.
We practice being the badass sorceresses we are.
Let’s not remove ourselves from the magic.
We can do this by coming together in sisterhood and moving through the discomfort of transmutation by engaging in a daily practice of divine devotion to deep growth.
