Isis, Egyptian Goddess Mother of the Universe was worshiped and revered all over the ancient world very much like she is today.
She is known as the Goddess of 10, 0000 names representing her feminine power and act of creation. Isis was seen as the great Mother Goddess, she was also seen as the Mistress of Magic, Rebirth, Healing, Resurrection and Childbirth.
She was very much loved by her people and that hasn’t changed either. This is because she was said to be a very compassionate and nurturing Goddess.
There are many books on the history or story of Isis so I will not repeat that here & if you haven’t read one, please do.
After knowing Isis and all she went through it is so easy to see how love & compassionate she was towards her family and she would stop at nothing to protect her love ones. Just like a Mother and child. This is why she is seen as the strong Mother Goddess that she is.
Isis, great Protector, Mother to all compassionate Goddess of the Human race.
Isis was also known as the great Physician & Healer , it is well know there were many healing rites when people called on Isis for her great healing abilities.
Many times for these great healing rituals, dream incubation was used. People would stay at the temple for a very precise daily regimen prescribed by the Priests, and then the person would sleep in the Temple hoping to receive guidance from Isis through their dreams.
The Priests & Priestesses of the Temple of Isis were also said to be Physicians, or skilled in the healing arts. Everything ranging from knowledge of human anatomy to producing medicines, knowledge of rare diseases, surgical techniques etc. Her incredible ability to heal the sick was famous throughout the ancient world.
The Nile was seen as her Life Force in Ancient Egypt and their whole world depended on their sustaining powers of the Nile.
Cats were very sacred to Isis so she was associated with the Goddess Bast and Isis was honoured all over the ancient world and it was quite a battle for the Christians to try and take away Isis from her devoted followers.
Isis is an all knowing and all loving Goddess.
She is the Creator of life and the Universe itself, love and compassion.
Isis can be invoked for many varied things, her powers stretch far & wide.
