Prayers of Healing

For the people of Bangkok:


"We who believe in Deity can truly help with the survivors who have lost people they love. We can give comfort to those hundreds who have lost their earthly bodies and are confused in the Astral sphere. ... May all beings be blessed by the Mother of All." ~ Olivia Robertson.

Light a candle on your altars and join in prayer worldwide during the FOI attunement times between 6:30 and 8:30 every morning and evening.

In Honor of the New Moon in Leo


"But to those who acknowledge My Divinity, I present a different face. I am the Sphynx of the Galaxy. My Head is that of Virgo, serene and wise. My body is that of the noble Leo, and I bear the wings of the soaring hawk. I am what you make of Me! My riddle is concealed within your heart." 

~ Oracle of the Goddess Sekhmet, "Mystical Awakening of Leo and Sekhmet" in "Sophia, Cosmic Consciousness of the Goddess" by Olivia Robertson.

Oracle of the Seasons


A new Oracle of the Seasons has been uploaded - the very beautiful and much loved oracle from the FOI liturgy rite 'Dedication of a Shrine to Isis' found in  "Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess"

Realm of the Moon, Realm of the Sun

“… a sensation comes now, you feel it in the base of your spine - a glow rising in you … feel this … the serpent Buto rising … You accept … you accept the energy brought to you freely, you do not refute, you surrender to the Great Mother, and you begin to rise up, to ascend from the abyss.

And from the darkness come all manner of colors, colored lights streaming around you. You are told that you are approaching the Realm of the Moon, the Mirror of Hathor. It reflects the sun and all the stars - here is a beautiful temple. You enter this temple of Hathor who is there with all the Moon Deities … you see a beautiful lotus pond, gleaming softly in the moonlight, and you are filled with this light. Look into the pool and see your immortal beloved, you reach gently down, the soft water falls through your hands. In silence now gaze into the pool and see your dream. It is here you find your angel guardian, bringing you joy and hope … your angel anoints your forehead from the sacred pool of Hathor, your future lies in this holy place, home of the Soul of Hathor. You feel indescribable joy, you feel a silvery light coming down into your forehead, it is glorious … you know this angelic being will guide you in your sleep. But you are told that you also cannot dream your life away! You are told to rise up …

You rise again, this time you ascend to the sovereign sun, to the temple of Ra. It is a golden temple with lions at the gates. You see the presiding Goddess - it is Sekhmet. She is crowned with the sun and sends out a glorious energy. It is the golden light that nourishes the earth.”

Veil of the Goddess of Mysteries


"The Fates and the Oracles have to be veiled: Only the true seeker may face Them. So I rushed upstairs and found a beautifully embroidered black shawl. I arranged it under a cloth depicting two huge Ancient Egyptian Eyes, so that the veils blocked the Portal. The effect was magical! To enter the Cave of the Mothers one now has to lift the veil concealing the Goddess of the Mysteries.


What is the Veil of Isis? Mysterious and compelling, transparent yet concealing, it is the atmosphere that cloaks our earth. Psychically it is the radiating aura that surrounds each of us, wrapping us in our hopes and visions. Above all, the Mystic Veil gives us the promise of Divinity awaiting us just round the corner – if only we have the courage to lift the Veil." ~ quote from FOI Co-Founder, Olivia Robertson

Vision of the Goddess Pele



“This is the Goddess Pele. She’s shown me a prophecy of fire within the earth, exploding - which isn’t very cheerful! But the painting is a fractal, because you see the fire rising right up through the planes. I’m looking on amazed and aghast. [lower right corner] She awakened the top of my head - my crown chakra - which is the light, which linked up with “loas”, or other beings [upper right corner].” – Olivia Robertson, FOI co-founder. Painting of the Goddess Pele by Olivia Robertson.
