Wings of Spirit

-->
“Isis of Ten Thousand Names, Who protecteth the soul with Thy feathery wings of the Kite; Whose blood, enchantments and power strengthen the soul, inspire us with Thy breath of the West Wind. Winged Goddess Who concealeth Thy brow with Thy long hair, spread Thy hair of enchantment and shake it over the brow of Thy Devotees. Breathe into us Thy Breath of life and health and strength. Restore us to life, as Thou gavest life to Thy Husband, Osiris.” 

~ Olivia Robertson, Invocation to the Goddess Isis of Egypt and Hellas, in “Sybil, Oracles of the Goddess,” in ‘Part VI. We Face the Mysteries’.

Remembering Olivia Robertson


 
 
Olivia Robertson, co-founder of the Fellowship of Isis passed into spirit sphere on the evening of November 14, 2013. We remember her today, and continue to honor her legacy and memory with loving respect. Perhaps the best tribute to her can be found in these words she received through divine inspiration:

“Death is for the ignorant! Immortality is for those who know the truth! Develop your psychic and spiritual gifts, so that not only will you recognize this “death” as the impostor it is, but you will help others to lose any fear … Reunion with those you love is certain … Manifest your Divine Origin which is born from the Mother of All, Nuit, Whose children are immortal like unto Herself. Nourish then all good gifts in each person and each being, and you strengthen the harmony between the Divine Sphere of Heaven with its transient reflection which is this world. There is no death. Love is eternal.”

(Quote: excerpt from the Oracle of the Goddess Isis in ‘Dulce Domum. The Soul Returns Home’, ritual no. 4, in “Panthea, Initiations and Festivals of the Goddess.”)
