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.”
