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:

Blessed Spring Equinox - Happy Anniversary to the Fellowship of Isis

 


Blessed Spring Equinox! Happy Forty-Sixth Anniversary to the Fellowship of Isis! "The Fellowship is dedicated to spreading the religion of all the Goddesses throughout this planet. The Gods are also venerated. The Goddess is seen as Deity, the Divine Mother of all beings, as well as the embodiment of Truth and Beauty. Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, including Catholics and Protestants, and Spiritualists have joined. ... The Goddess Isis alone is Head of Her Fellowship. Within Her Family - Shemsu - all members will still have equal privileges. Membership will continue to be free. F.O.I. is not a Patriarchal Hierarchy, so no member can have spiritual authority over another. Iseums, Lyceums, Groves and Priories will remain on equal footing. Titles describe work undertaken, and are not a badge of authority over people or beliefs." ~ original Handbook of the Fellowship of Isis

Winter Solstice Blessings!

 

"Now, at this holy time, Winter Solstice, the sun appears at its lowest in the sky, and star shrine forth in splendor; we call upon the Mother of All to bring forth from the dark winter a bright abundance, as life is renewed and the sun strengthens on its course." ~ Olivia Robertson "Prayer for the Winter Solstice"
