Happy Anniversary to the Fellowship of Isis!


Blessed Vernal Equinox, Aset Shemsu! Today we honor the founding of the Fellowship of Isis, which was established on theVernal Equinox in 1976. Did you ever wonder why the founders chose this date? Olivia expressed her views in an interview given at the Nesu House, Isis Oasis, in 2003. She offered some beautiful insights the reasoning why this date was chosen, including this passage: "Spring marked the time of ancient Egyptian harvest. My brother, through his studies, discovered the four faces of Khufu’s pyramid are slightly concave - as commented upon by Petrie; the intent of this construction may have marked advent of the equinoxes. Lawrence discovered the pillar of Osiris, known as the djed, was used as a kind of celestial measuring-pole. The djed, when shown tilted, symbolised the Autumn Equinox and the confinement of Osiris within the coffin; whereas the djed when upright, denotes the Spring Equinox and the recovery of Osiris by Isis." You can read the whole interview at the link below.

Remembering FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson


Today, we remember and honor the legacy of our much beloved Olivia Robertson, who passed on November 14, 2013. Olivia carried the transfiguring fire of the Isian Current. She was keenly aware and cut through pretense. And she did so with a stunningly careful choice of words, and/or even, with a laugh. She did this without embarrassing or belittling, and always gave something back, so that those who spoke with her came away uplifted and inspired. For her time and the station to which she was born, Olivia broke the mold! Many simply don’t realize what she faced, the courage that was required to live as she did. We reap rewards sown by her deeds and her life to this day. She always found the good in people and sought to strengthen the most positive aspects, through a summation that she was able to perform instantly. Those of us who had the honor and pleasure to know her, believe that she was able to “see through the veil” that shrouded the true immortal nature of each one of us. Dearest Olivia, we say your name that you may live!

Enfolded in the Wings of Isis


We ascend to the realm of Hathor, Goddess of love. We find here the psychic center of love. Love is the heart beat of the universe. You are love. Each of us is born of the Divine Mother. Ator, Ator … Ator. Now we feel a particular gleam in our heart. We feel divine guidance as to how we may help. Silently say the name of someone you know, who may need healing. Angelic beings help Hathor. Feel this healing for yourselves, now that you have given it to someone else, you can ask it for yourselves.” ~ “Enfolded in the Wings of Isis” – by Olivia Robertson


The transcript of the entire guided journey is available on FOI Central Website:
