From Christian Missionary to Consecrated, Syncretic Priestess of Isis

Updated on May 17, 2014

Dieties: God's emissaries

As a former Christian of 34 years and a one time missionary to Hong Kong, I found the Biblical reference from God that He was a jealous God very unusual and very telling. To me the mysteries of Source have rarely been touched upon in the Church that claims to represent Christ Jesus and the Holy masculine-based Trinity. In fact, the entire Old Testament is fascinating to me. In fact, years ago after breaking up with the love of my life who I met in the dark night of my soul and was a Chaos Magician, I began looking at the forbidden aspects of Protestant Scripture. And I targeted the God pronounced most wise man of the Old Testament: King Solomon. Well Solomon is now known in various non-Jewish and non-Christian circles as a Master Magician.

When I was growing up, my impression of deities were that they were not real in any way. This is not so. They exist today as they once did in the ancient cultures and they still do in indigenous peoples. There form is most likely different. I tend to think of them as collective energies that have a spirit and a persona. I learned this as I explored the ascended masters and the astral plane---as I delved deeply into the forbidden that my ex-boyfriend gave me a taste for. Because the forbidden fruit has always provided knowledge and that is decadent to me.

I am syncretic which means I blend belief systems. Christ is still my center and His embodiment of perfect, unconditional love is my daily focus but I am estranged from my foundational religion, Christianity, that I now see as a bastardized version of Jesus' message and heart. Christianity was created by Constantine the Great around 300 A.D. Most Christians scarcely know their own Church history. They only know Church doctrine and dogma.

I am a practitioner of One Love. I believe deities are God's divinely appointed governers as well as humanity's first major spiritual teachers within the Illusion known as Maya. Maya enables humanity to individuate and then reunite with their true awareness and reality of being entities of perfect LOVE. From my perspective, life is about reawakening to the greater truth that we are never separate from our Source. We are always one...infinitely with the Divine.

So are the emissaries and the angels and the spirit guides and every entity that exists as creation.

Many of the world religions allude to this. I subscribe to the Creator known as Source. I, also, subscribe to the feminine form of source called the Goddess. And I subscribe to any and every deity that calls my name and draws me into their existence. Isis called to me through the magick that I fell in love with while I sought to rekindle the eternal flame with my twin soul who left me so that I might individuate as fully as humanly possible. So that I might heal.

Isis: Goddess of Magick, Motherhood and Eternal Love

I am a child of God and Goddess. I accepted Christ in a childhood epiphany at the age of six. I accepted Isis as a woman of 37; but I knew her as a child also---from a Saturday morning show that "innocently" projected ideas of the ancient ways of the forgotten Egypt.

Isis seduced me on March 5, 2006 when I meditated in hopes of celebrating the Festival Isis that I read about on the Internet. I didn't know much about magick---only remnants that my former lover earnestly taught me day by day for 3.5 years. I was just trying what I felt might be magick. I now know this is when magick is born...through creativity and intution. I arranged to meditate and then I was hoping for a magickal, celebratory massage at the adjacent spa. All these were hopes, wishes really. I wanted to find the magick I had been seeking for a year---seeking the way I sought God as Christian.

My expectations were met boldly. I would meet the first person that I felt and knew came from another lifetime with me. He was my therapist that night and I felt his energy instantly. It felt like a huge dose of Bounce was needed to break the static cling between us; and then he said the magic words: Can I connect with your highest self? These were words I had dreamed of for over a year before I heard them spoken.

The session was magickal. I had not closed down my meditation before I went to the spa. I didn't know I should or I needed to. I was psychically wide open and I was out of body the entire session. It was fabulous for my mind but weird for him. It would be a week before a psychic revealed his name as she explored my incarnational history. And the most amazing journey commenced between he and I. Cosmic experiences occurred regularly. It was him that helped fill in the gaps to all my ex-boyfriends mysterious and cryptic teachings. But more importantly, Isis became very real to me that night and over the next eight years, I would grow into her loving, mystical care. She is my divine guru. She is my heart's consort.

Who Isis IS...

Isis is the Goddess of 10,000 names. She is the archetype for the Divine Feminine. She is the aspect of Source that fulfills the wholeness of humanity. She precedes the idea of original sin through Judaica. She is Mother, Magician and Eternal Love that resurrects her husband/brother, Osiris, as their son Horus.

Isis provides the Divine magick of profound sorrow since her brother, Seth, killed Osiris (also his brother) and strewn his body parts across the bank of the river Nile. Isis' sorrow resurrected Osiris through the sorrow which was filled with love. Love is the most high vibrating energy on the earth plane. It literally heals energetically which transforms disease, illness and wounds in today's present time. Isis showed her people how to heal through love and that knowledge spread throughout time-space. She collected Osiris' pieces except she could not find the phallus. Thus the sexual relationship ended and father became son. The phallus is an important element in Osiris magick which is about disembodiment and resurrection as well as reconciliation.

Isis is the divine Mother of her people and any person who aligns him/herself with the energy of the Goddess. she is eternal love and Osiris and Horus are her twin soul.

Learning to trust in the Goddess and Abandon the limited ideas of Constantine

It was a long relationship construction with Isis. I was a die-hard Christian when I met my ex-boyfriend the Chaos Magician. But my soul's dark night of three years and my love for the fascinating man consumed me and alchemized my existence. I became a very real extension of my ex. And my curiosity grew and my spirit waned in desperation for the virtual loveless feeling Christianity which just sunk my old beliefs. Day after day I became enthralled with theconcepts my ex would introduce me to.

But one day about 3-4 years into Isis development I had to truly make a choice to believe in her squarely and dynamically---personally. This was the point of no return, and seven years in, I became a consecrated priestess. This past March, I conducted Osiris magick and it was beyond powerful. Isis guides me regularly now.

      No comments yet: then i view the hub as worthy a discussion so let us see if we can get a thread in motion. Firstly i am not qualified to speak on Isis other than the deity herself appearing in relevant areas of my esoteric interest. Actually i am on the hub pages with an intention to write gothic fiction but i can not resist getting involved in what is sent to me co incidentally. All i can offer at this stage is that i have come across here in merrie England olde maps dating back to the middle ages when the Thames called Thamisis in those tymes with a spacing between tham and ISIS.

      In all respect all people are Intitle to their choices and opinions , but also the truth is free as a choice also ! As written in he Hebrew and Greek scriptures or scrolls first before all other translations it is very clear How the true God YHWH KNOWN as Jehovah ,feels about magic and sorcery . It is condemned. There is no future with the true God in betrayal to worship false gods that really represent satan the god of this world. His judgment is death eternal any one who takes his side will die forever also.

      Deuteronomy 18:10, 11

      10 There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, anyone practicing magic, anyone who looks for omens, a sorcerer, 11 anyone binding others with a spell, anyone who consults a spirit medium or a fortune-teller, or anyone who inquires of the dead.

      Did people back in that time make adjustments ? Yes they did ! The Reference Bible Ac 19:19 Indeed, quite a number of those who practiced magical arts brought their books together and burned them up before everybody. And they calculated together the prices of them and found them worth fifty thousand pieces of silver

      There love and faith for Jehovah was outstanding! We must never give to satan ,what Jehovah is entitle ,our love and worship.

      Thanks foer the comments. I don't write to proselytize. I write to talk of my experiences and if something rings true for people...great. I was a Bible teacher and missionary. I understand Christian Dogma and Doctrine. I, also, understand how Christianity was formed by Constantine the Great and how the religion has bastardized Jesus Christ time and time again in the name of they are just men they know not what they do---meanwhile fleets and fleets have been killed by Jesus "loving" actions over the course of history. Your One True God belongs in a book first the heart second. My God encompasses all of creation. I wish you well in your spiritual journey. The irony is we will all spend eternity with Source regardless of our beliefs or practices. This I know as I have transcended third dimensional based reality and I lived quite frequently in the fifth dimension (something that probably seems like fiction or unreality to you). There is a truth that God is perfect, unconditional love. If you follow that truth, a new existence is at your feet. But your walk is your walk and you have it for a good and purposeful reason. Educate yourself fully. Outside your Bible. Delve into history. Really discover Judaica and Christianity. I guarantee there is a lot more out there than you realize. AND...go with an open not a closed fear-based mind. Jesus is perfect, unconditional love. Christianity and Judaica are not and they never were. Constantine created Christianity from a "perfect storm" of military coos, beautiful basilicas, and a unifying thought to transcend him from the pagan emperor Julius Caesar to a truism he could sell big time to the people of approximately 300AD. Prostantism and Catholicism have as blood and "Jesus free" reality as Constantine. the Burning Times certainly had nothing to do with Jesus who lived amongst the tax collector, the whore and the woman about to be stoned dead.

      No, I left Christianity for a reason...and my goal is not to win you over to my way or what you think is the one "true" God's way. I am here to write my truth and connect to anyone who resonates with it.

      Be blessed on your path. I am fine with it as long as it does not try to mandate my path. God/Goddess has all of us in Its hands of pure, unconditional love.

      Oh...and about the Scritpture...it has been thoroughly molested as well. And there have been other works that were 86'd by the Church. Do you realize there are 8 books in the world today called Bible and each group and its way thinks their Bible is the Bible and everyone else is wrong. Things that make me go hmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........

      Really you are talking about the bibles that I am very aware of translation problems ,but rather the translation is a problem ,the message is the same in the end ,like the word death ,man , women. Earth, heaven ,these definitions never change and the meaning. You are talking about King James and many other translations that may word different statmemts, but if as an example some one said it was a fire in their own language ,and wrote the statement different in letters ,does that mean there is no fire? Just because you have a problem with transilation ? the message has not stop the truth that there is a life threatening fire, and some one thought enough to relate the message. First you are telling me about the bibles ,when I am talking to you from the Hebrew and Greek scrolls, it says the same thing. You already stated you do not believe in the bible, So I gave you scriptures of the Hebrew and Greek texted . The truth is the truth , yes the messenger may be imperfect, and not meet up to your expectations. But life and deaths meaning will always prove correct in the end.

      God is not a mere man who tells lies, Nor a son of man who changes his mind. When he says something, will he not do it? When he speaks, will he not carry it out?

      Tit 1:2 and is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago;

      Is it true that God said the one that is sinning will die,

      We all can die ! As proven to be true?

      And his other words spoken is will prove to be true also.

      I am speaking of the cannons not the translations. There is a huge difference. I said the Bible/Scripture was severely molested. And you and I are coming from two entirely different worlds. You cannot imagine my world. I can imagine yours. I have been where you are at.

      So........nothing more to say on that because there is no common ground to stand on. Blessings.

      Austin Osmon Spare a painter inspired by athe 'art nouveau' produced an amazing likeness of ISIS which is on internet imagery. Full of symbolism and if you gaze upon it you can seem to be mesmerised by the life like countenance in particular the eyes.

      Now this leaves me in a quadrary! Wasn't ISIS veiled and no man permitted to see her?

      "'I am that which is, which hath been, and which shall be; and no man has ever lifted the veil that hides my Divinity from mortal eyes.'" The Isis of the mysteries is completely veiled by a scarlet cloth. To the initiates who learn her mysteries, she lifts her veil, but they are to remain forever silent about what they have seen."

      "Spare had an ability to contact and see the realms of ghosts, spirits guides, nature spirits, ancestral spirits and auras. The surrealist artist and writer Ithell Colquhoun called him a natural psychic. He had a penchant for automatic writing and drawing. While sitting in the dark, directed by artists in the spirit world, he sometimes painted the evolution of the soul in the afterlife. " Perhaps he ascertaine this through the psychic realm...a reincarnation of an initiate.

      We are in the Age of Information now so that may trump the Age of Mystery.

      I have read (forgotten where) a theory that after the cataclysm which destroyed the lost continent of Atlantis escaped to uninhabited regions and settled there with the knowledge and skills of their previous civilization. This could account for pyramids on every continent.

      Yes i'd forgotten about him. Dion Fortune also, her home in Glastonbury is now a guest house and i had a paranormal experience in there, getting sucked into a vortex but unharmed. Her concept of Atlantis is explained in her novel The Sea Priestess.
