Entrance to the Old Abbey at Clonegal Castle, Foundation Center of the Fellowship of Isis.  Olivia Robertson wrote in the introduction to the Rite of Dana:  "We practise Druid rituals in the Old Abbey, a ruin filled with flowering shrubs and rambling roses. Parts of it date from the 14th Century, the same date as our yew walk that borders the Wilderness. We have there a dolmen altar and two marble vessels containing rain water. We began using this for rituals in 1963."

Melusina, Life Centres of the Goddess

The Fellowship of Isis Liturgy book "Melusina, Life Centres of the Goddess" is now available in paperback. It may be ordered through Amazon's online bookstore, as well as any other bookstore or library.
Olivia Robertson writes in the Introduction:
"When we have received a clear picture of what our part is in the Divine Plan, the next worry is, how can we, so insignificant, so dream-filled in a harsh world, do anything about it? This is where the Melusina comes to the rescue. There is only one source of Power; Deity. Men have operated this power through the Great God Mode and produced intellectual, artistic and scientific marvels. The rebound has been misuse, resulting in our present dangers. But the other source of Power, the Goddess, has been almost totally neglected. The Oracle has been relegated to the circus- "Madame Zita tells Fortunes". Flames spring up for the stage magician . . . Power through the Great Goddess Mode has been ascribed to black magic or cheating. Even life after death has been denied or simply ignored. Yet this Power works through the etheric vehicle around which the earthly body is built. It flows through the etheric counterpart of the entire physical universe. Its area has been denigrated as "Limbo", place of disembodied ghosts, poltergeists, black magicians, witches and the occasional "High Adept" bring some to order! Its force has been termed Kundalini in India, Manitu with the North American Indians, Mana of the peoples of Oceana, Melusina to Westerners, and Buto to the Egyptians. When we have truly centred ourselves in Deity, and clearly know our Intention, we may invoke this Power. We realise it is not, as electricity, to be evoked according to our will, but respectfully to be invoked as Living Deity, Life Power."

Earth Day Blessings

"I lapsed into unconsciousness and I descended through the earth and through time and through long memories of past lives. I fell through enveloping darkness and I reached flames of fire and a bitumous green molten lake with strange inhabitants like nothing I had ever imagined. And I sank still further into unconsciousness but I still held a thread of memory until I sank below even unconsciousness into death. And I passed a barrier and I was awake and I found myself within earth's heart. And there before me in realms of glory was a Goddess of surpassing beauty. Her hair shone golden like the sun and Her robe was the deep blue of the sea. And the greatness of Her aura filled the earth and reached the stars. She was brighter than a thousand suns. And I felt a happiness I have not ever felt before or since, for this was the Mother of us all."   Olivia Robertson, "Gaea, Initiations of the Earth"

The Window of Taurus
(mp3 - 3 mins - 709kb)

Audio transcript:
"To realize the harmony of Justice and Compassion, we need to make a magical journey to the Constellation of Taurus. Know that these signs are given to us by the Adepti, the Magi of old, so that we may relate to the reality of the stars - not through the sciences, but through our spirits: this is spiritual rising. Come. Approach the window of Taurus. This window depicts a red-haired Goddess seated on a white bull, which is emerging from the sea. Descending from the stars of Taurus, are 14 maidens who bathe in the ocean. Now suddenly a sharp wind blows, and it throws the window open, and we are faced with the constellation of Taurus. Gaze upon the 7 stars of the Hyades, in V-formation - 7 of the 14 Atlantides maidens. Within their aetheric sphere is the mountain of Hursag, Paradise of Creation. For what appears as earthly, flaming stars, planets and space, is but a symbol of a reality beyond. Hear of this mountain of Hursag, this paradise. Ninurta, the God, created the mountain to save his people from the flooding of the Tigris. Hear the ancient words written on tablets, about this God-king: "Behold now, everything on earth rejoiced afar at Ninurta. The Lord made mourning disappear from the land, he made happy the spirits of the Gods. Because of his Mother's great joy at his great and heroic deeds, Ninurta addressed her: ‘O Lady, O Ninmah, because for my sake you would enter the matchless land, the hill which I have set up, let its name be Hursag, and you be its queen’.” In this magical world ruled by Ninmah and Ninurta, only those who do great deeds are admitted. Pass through the window, if you dare. Imagine yourself now, entering this land if you would - if you would do great deeds. Enter and visualize what you would like to do in the future, and see it as if it happens!"

Shrine of Ngame and Lunar Eclipse

The Shrine of Ngame at the Fellowship of Isis Temple, with the Wheel of the Zodiac on the left wall. And for tonight's lunar eclipse, you may listen to this mp3 recording of Olivia Robertson:
Audio transcript: 
"The Moon is the mirror both of the polarized rays of the Sun, and of Earth, when its shadow blackens the Moon. So those who fear the occulted Moon reject their own shadow! The Moon symbolizes duality. . . the Moon is our sister planet and her influence moves both the tides of the sea and our own souls. In her darkness she shows us our own black image, the earth's shadow.. . So she is an enigma that conceals the truth. For everything in this physical world is but a reflection of greater spheres. Harken to the Mystery of the Occulted Moon: 'And I beheld a mighty Goddess and Her head with its dark waving hair reached the heavens, and Her feet stood within the abyss and a black panther with blazing golden eyes was coiled about them. Her naked body was black as night and the only light therein were two white crescents about her majestic dark eyes. In Her hands She bore a rough rock of quartz. And I knew that She held the Moon and that She was Ngame'!"
