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
