"I was aware of who and what Isis is in a mythic sense—a goddess who was (and is) the wife of the deity Osiris, the Lord of the Lower Worlds. Isis also played a major role in Osiris’ resurrection after his betrayal and murder by his evil brother Set. Isis was the one who retrieved Osiris’ dismembered parts and reconstituted him. As such, she serves as a symbolic archetype of healing and reconciliation…. as well as soul retrieval.

"I was perceiving her on the one hand as her ‘light beyond the form,’ and I was experiencing her directly as ‘the formless beyond the light.’ And there was no doubt in those moments that she—the Isis/mother goddess energy—is real."

Introduction to An Encounter In Egypt with Isis
by Hank Wesselman, Ph.D.


In February's Meta Arts column we began to explore the issue of what it is like to make connection with the archetypal forces that are often referred to as ‘the spirits.’

In approaching this subject, I am well aware that the whole issue of contact with transpersonal beings is a problematic one for us Westerners because we do not grow up in a culture in which connection with spirits is part of our ongoing experience. In fact many of our fundamentalist religious sects (with great righteousness) warn against having any contact with spirits because they are ‘evil.’

This monumental misconception has generated widespread fear in the populace at large that, in turn, has created separation between us and those transpersonal allies who are poised to help us in various ways.

The atheists even deny their existence altogether… (again with great righteousness.)

Despite these many and varied misguided proclamations and pontifications, allow me to observe that the traditional shamans of the indigenous peoples, as well as those of us ‘moderns’ who walk on the path of direct revelation, assert with their/our considerable authority as accomplished visionaries that the spirits, as well as the realities they inhabit, are real.

Our authority comes not from beliefs (in spirits, angels, spirit guides etc) nor does it come from faith (in the existences of spirits, and etc.) We know their existence to be a fact from our direct experiences of them.

There is simply nothing like the direct experience of ‘the spirits’ to awaken us from the consensus slumber of culture at large and bring us into the irreversible vortex of personal transformation (also called enlightenment). For this may provide us with a vastly expanded understanding of who we really are as well as where we are headed.

Six years ago, I visited Egypt for the first time, excited beyond belief at this opportunity to connect with the transpersonal beings embodied within the temples and shrines as I described in last month’s Meta Arts column (February, 2009). At that time, there was one deity in particular for whom I felt great attraction—the goddess Isis.
