Isis Knot Magic

Note the knots in the straps of the Goddess' garment as well as the little loop between Her breasts. Note the knots in the straps of the Goddess’ garment as well as the little loop between Her breasts.

We’ve been discussing the famous Knot of Isis, the Tet, lately, so let’s talk a bit more about Egyptian knot magic in general.

Following that is a ritual from Isis Magic that uses magical knots for protection. The ritual can be used for any protective purpose.

In ancient Egypt, knots were used to bind and release, join opposites, and, since a knot secures things, protect.

Knot magic was well known in Egypt from an early period; an inscription in one of the pyramids states that Isis and Nephthys work magic on Osiris “with knotted cords.”

The Book of Coming Forth by Day also gives several examples of the magical power of the knot. In one, knots are tied around the deceased to help her come into the presence of the Deities: “The four knots are tied…

Daniel Cormier sends message to Jon Jones: ‘Get it together, man’

MMAjunkie

One man’s misfortune can be another’s opportunity, and [autotag]Daniel Cormier[/autotag] has been granted the chance to compete for a UFC title for a second consecutive fight.

Cormier (15-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) meets [autotag]Anthony Johnson[/autotag] (19-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) for the vacant light heavyweight title in UFC 187’s new main event after former champion [autotag]Jon Jones[/autotag] (21-1 MMA, 15-1 UFC) was stripped of the belt and suspended indefinitely due to his alleged involvement in a Sunday hit-and-run accident in Albuquerque, N.M., that left a 25-year-old pregnant woman with a broken arm and wrist.

“DC” already was preparing for a scheduled matchup with Ryan Bader at UFC Fight Night 68 on June 6. However, when news broke about Jones, Cormier said he realized the opportunity to compete at UFC 187 might present itself.

“I followed the social media; people were kind of seeing that it was the fight that would need to…

Anthony Johnson Anthony Johnson

While much has changed for [autotag]Anthony Johnson[/autotag] (19-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) over the past few days, the UFC light heavyweight contender said his plan for May 23 hasn’t been altered one bit.

“The gameplan hasn’t changed,” Johnson told MMAjunkie. “The gameplan is to whoop some ass.”

Johnson, of course, was set to face Jon Jones (21-1 MMA, 15-1 UFC) in the main event of next month’s UFC 187 event for the promotion’s light heavyweight belt. That was before “Bones” was involved in a hit-and-run accident that ultimately saw him stripped of his belt and indefinitely suspended.

Fortunately for Johnson, UFC officials elected to keep the belt on the line at UFC 187, bringing in Daniel Cormier (15-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) to face “Rumble” for the now-vacant belt.

Johnson admits he wanted to be the first man to truly beat Jones in the cage but is still excited for his opportunity…

The Mother Wound as Initiation into the Divine Feminine

Womb Of Light

We live in a very fast-paced culture. There’s an atmosphere of pressure to be productive, to show our value through what we do, and to expect instant results from our efforts. This atmosphere of being rushed can be challenging when we are in the process of healing emotional wounds, because the process unfolds on its own timeline. The tendency to “power through”doesn’t work in terms of the healing process, which has an organic intelligence that can’t be forced. It has cycles and spirals of ups and downs. It’s not linear the way our minds would like it to be.

Catrin Welz-Stein

Healing the mother wound takes time. It’s common for people to reach places of intense discomfort and think “What am I doing wrong? I thought I was healing, but I feel miserable! When is the pain going to end?!” It’s at this point that people can get down on themselves, get…
