If you were drawn to Card 1:
Stay True And Be In Your Power - Osiris and Isis, Lord and Lady of Divine Authority You are a sovereign Divine being with spiritual authority and freedom within you. You do not need permission from anyone to be who you are and live your life as you so choose. This is your Divine birthright. Guard it as the precious treasure that it is and remember that you are a Divine being. The Flail and Crook, often held by Osiris, are symbols of Divine royalty and dominion. These symbols remind us that within we hold great dominion, spiritual authority and freedom to be the sovereign ruler of our own Self. this does not mean that we have to control life or others or even the environment around us, but it does give us complete and utter choice to become as spiritually awake, free, and self-determined as we with to be, as well as providing us with complete choice as to what our values and actions will be this lifetime. There is no permission require from anyone, apart from yourself, to be and live your truth! There are many voices that will test you on the journey from illusory shackles of fear, loss or abandonment that may hold you back or tempt you into giving your power away to theirs. You shall awaken from the testing into the realization of spiritual independence within. Of course, there is more to spiritual authority than just recognizing that it lies within you. There are times when you must act on it, guard it and protect it, which means recognizing when others seek to exert influence over you for their own reasons, or when you are being manipulated out of your own authority, becoming blind to your own power of choice and instead believing that things just are the way that they are and you cannot question or query. Sometimes during such challenges, to wield the crook and flail, to exert one’s own spiritual authority requires that you stand your ground and remain true to your knowing. This is not about achieving a certain outcome, or attempting to control something or someone, or even forcing things to be as you wish they could be. Standing your ground means always telling yourself the truth and meaning for you. It is not about making another see things the same way, it is about honoring your own truth and if your truth is wise enough to include compassion, then honoring the other, even when the other disagrees with you or seeks to harm you out of their own fear. You do not have to challenge another in order to honor your truths and inner authority. If you feel that another has to agree with you in order for your authority to be intact, then it isn’t genuine inner authority at all. The fact that you don’t need to have the agreement of others in order to live an empowered life can be a liberating realization! Yet there are times when life can feel like an assault against your truths with any challenging you. For those Souls who have come to master spiritual authority this lifetime, there is a test - to remain true without becoming dogmatic, to honor what you know is true without minimizing, judging or dismissing the truths of another that are different to yours (but just as true for them). You have the power to create and own your reality and you don’t need permission from anyone else to do this. Honor your spiritual sovereignty, let the lady Isis help you find your spiritual authority and freedom of choice now. Seeking to hand over any responsibility for your own well being to another can be tricky and ultimately self-destructive path, even though it may seem to start off as a relief of stress about some concern or other. This card also guides you to take responsibility for your health into your own hands too. Advice from health professionals and doctors can be helpful and sometimes can be mistaken. It is up to you to decide for yourself how you wish to work with your body. Don’t be scared. Listen to the advice given by other professionals, but remember, your life is your spiritual gift. Don’t be afraid to live it in your own way.
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Goddess of 10,000 Names: Isis – Endless Emanations of the Priestess Isis with many forms, names, associations, and expressions is referred to as the Goddess with ten thousand names. A name holds power. It defines and energizes or limits. The names, faces, and roles that you play are just one part of your being, yet you exist beyond them, beloved initiate, as a vast being. You are currently realizing that you are not limited by previous identities you held. Instead you are becoming more of your whole Self. Enjoy the uncovering of even more of you! Just like Lady Isis, you are a multifaceted, multi-dimensional being. It is most helpful at this phase in your path that you learn not to attach two roles or identities that may have once held great importance for you or others relating to you. It does not mean that you must cease to relate to that name or role, more that you are realizing it is only a part of you and there is even more of you wishing to express itself now. The roles you are needing to move beyond might be mother, executive, healer, good person, strong person, always in control, daughter, teacher or Guru, grandmother and so on. There is nothing wrong with these roles and you may still express part of your vast self through such roles, but you are at a significant point in your inner development where you are learning that these are not who you are but simply expressions of the eternal, endless self, uncontainable by any human descriptions. It can be tricky to avoid getting stuck in the roles that others prescribed for you or expect of you, and yet your self definition will become wider and your experience of yourself will be more real and fulfilling if you are open to discovering more of you, beyond the person you have considered yourself to be up until now. For this to happen, you must be willing to allow the many and varied faces of your being, your Ten Thousand Names, to begin to emerge in your awareness, to realize that you are more than you currently imagine yourself to be. This opens up tremendous freedom of choice and possibility in life. This can be both exhilarating and terrifying! Trust that the Self, is in essence, Divine Love and there is great joy in it's unfoldment, even if there are challenges to let go of the fears that have held us trapped in certain roles and identities at times. The call to let go of old identity is very strong, leading you to this Oracle at this time, when a new, and more whole, fulfilling and truthful sense of identity awaits you. Any fear or struggle that you go through to allow this to happen, beloved, it will be spiritually repaid to you multiplied in so many ways. There is nothing to lose except old limitations and so much wonder and joy to be gained. This Oracle also indicates that there is a spiritual name waiting for you on the inner planes. The name may come from various spiritual traditions as a name of a deity or sacred mantra, or it could be an actual name that you can sound out and use a meditation or sacred temple activities with spiritual groups. That name may also simply be a note, and inner awareness of a sound, or it can be sourced by going into your heart, almost felt more than heard or spoken. The spiritual name is coming to you to help you deepen your connection with yourself. Like any other identity it is just a representation, for a time. You do not need to pack up your old life in search of an entirely new one unless your heart deeply guides you with peace and neutrality that this is what is needed for your spiritual growth. More often then not what does spiritual name offers you if it's chance to begin to loosen your grip on your old identity, not throw it away completely, and sense yourself in a more expanded light. Whether you consciously and easily received your spiritual name in meditation or dream state, or through a healing your conversation with another Initiate, or whether it remains a mystery, trust that this is in your heart, calling you to recognize more of your true self. If you already have a spiritual name, this Oracle is guidance to not become too attached to that identity either. Names are ways of knowing a being, but they are not the being. This can be hard for us to take on board in a culture that loves to label and therefore understand everything! For the Initiate however, accepting mystery is part of the spiritual journey into the Divine Self. If you have felt constrained by a role, name, or identity and are wishing for assistance and going beyond it, or if you have sense a new role or identity calling you into greater expression and would love some Divine help and that growth, this Oracle indicates the help you need is already with you, urging your growth from within.
If you chose Card 3:
Scales Of Balance - Ancient Tantra of the Soul You are a Tantrika, an Initiate on the Path of Divine Healing of the Masculine and Feminine, the two sacred polarities that are universal to human experience. As these energies come into mutual respect and balance, you attain great power, presence and healing effect in the world of the Soul and in the human world of forms here on this Earth. You are supported in further exploring this path now, under the auspices and blessing of beloved Isis. You are in the process of sacred relationship healing of the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energies within your own Soul. This is the advanced spiritual path of Tantra. It is the connection of the body and Soul. The effect of this inner divine relationship healing is genuine enlightenment of the mind and the body. The body becomes a living sacred temple of light, energy and wild aliveness. This embodiment can be experienced in movement, in deep stillness, in vitality and in quietness. You are a Tantrika, a sacred priest-priestess of the Tantric arts. Some people mistakenly believe that Tantra is simply about sexuality, but it is in truth the journey of the Soul to bring masculine and feminine polarities into wholeness, love, unity and empowerment - to learn to be the enlightened path in every element of your being. This is Soul-building work that is in great service to the spiritual healing and evolution of humanity, which is in deep need of those such as yourself, who can help create sacred connection between mind and body. It might be through your own personal healing of your body-mind connection and perhaps through your healing services for others that you walk your Tantric Path. It might be done in a private way or in an obvious way. What matters is that it feels right for you. Walking this path authentically is a choice to live in dedication to the sacred work of Isis who taught us about the creative power that could come of healing the relationship between masculine and feminine consciousness. You are guided to accept this healing through learning to balance the masculine and feminine energies within yourself and your relationships with others. Balancing give and take, directing and flowing, play and solitude are ways to do this now. Learning to feel as comfortable as possible with your sexual and spiritual nature, seeing how they can complement rather than compete with each other is helpful too. Connection with the body is the most powerful form of healing for the feminine energy as it holds the secrets to Divine Feminine wisdom. This can occur through movement, dance and yoga that is based on body awareness and presence, rather than necessarily involving fast flowing postures that may take you more into your head than your body. You can come more into your body through time in nature, swimming, laying in the sun, resting or walking provided that you stay present to the physical sensations that you experience. This Oracle also comes as a guide for you Path of Inner Healing and Service. You are encouraged to explore Divine Masculine and Feminine healing within yourself specifically at this time. This may involve forgiveness of past relationships with significant males or females in your life. It may also require an adjustment of softening to allow in feminine wisdom, or cutting out some distraction or draining situations or relationships that minimize your sense of your own power and capacity to use masculine wisdom well. If you also drew the Oracle Of Healing the Divine Masculine, you are actively encouraged to explore Tantra as a personal healing journey this lifetime. There are many different teachers and approaches under the heading of ‘tantra’ these days. Use discernment and trust what feels right to you. You are also guided, if in healing work with others, that you can help others heal through exploring the interplay of masculine and feminine energies. It might be through connection of mind and body, through inner and outer worlds, through sexuality and spirituality, joining for healing. Enjoy the unfolding journey, beloved Initiate, for it will be highly creative and could involve art, movement as dance, yoga, breath work and much more!
