Our newest Sanctuary member: Re Sekhmet Mau

We welcome Re Sekhmet to the Iseum Sanctuary Refuge. Re is from the Mohave Desert area of Southern California. Being found in a desert seems appropriate for an Egyptian/Arabian Mau. Re was in a shelter which “euthanizes” cats and other animals that are unclaimed and unwanted. Fortunately, he came to us, as he had come to the Chief Priest and Priestess in dreams and drawings.

Re was rescued, as was always intended by the Goddess. Re immediately became one of the Iseum Sanctuary Temple cats, enjoying the sound of the large gong and singing bowls as we perform our daily rituals.

The following is one of our prayers of blessing, as we give thanks for Re; invoking the Goddess:

In the Names of Aset and Osiris,
May all beings be Blessed:
Spirits and humans,
animals, birds, reptiles,
fishes, insects, plants,
rainforests, the Earth
and all Her sacred elements.

October 29th Worship

As written in the Cairo Papyrus Ancient Egyptian Calendar, October 29 is the last day of the month and a very favorable day. It is the day of the Houses [Temples] of Re and of Osiris.

The presiding Priestess of the Sanctuary recently had a dream which is the theme of today’s worship.

The community stands independently upon their own stars, throughout the Sanctuary, finding the boundaries. Each holds a branch; the branches show the boundaries as well as the strength of each.

M3 – Branch
Aa1 X1 D54 – Strength Eternal

There are the boundaries of the Sanctuary, boundaries of truth, and boundaries of the Iseum. When each branch is placed next to the other, to create a huge bundle, it is unbreakable.

We need to remember this strength, eternal strength, the strength and immensity of the stars guiding us, as well as the strength and spirit of our animal companions who share our branches.

We build our altars with these branches and welcome new branches upon our altars.

Blessed be the boundaries of protection and the open nature of all who are welcome within these sacred boundaries.

Invocation of Bastet

Beloved Bastet, mistress of happiness and bounty, daughter of the Sun God,

Slay the evil that afflicts our minds as you slay the serpent Apep.

With your graceful stealth anticipate the moves of all who perpetrate cruelties and stay their hands against the children of light.

Grant us the joy of song and dance, and ever watch over us in the lonely places in which we must walk .

~Ancient Egyptian prayer
