gate: sekhmet

gate theme song: hara by jean du voyage

reconnection & sharing | sekhmet | egypt | final assignments | theory: building community & tribe

january 5, 2023


heart work:

☥ fire ceremony —write everything you’re ready to let go of that will no longer serve going into your new elevated and embodied self; remember to give gratitude the parts you’re letting go—any darkness, shadows, or grief

☥ vision mapping — channel your highest self, writing, or creating in some form the vision for yourself in the upcoming year

☥ cacao ceremony with the spices (cayenne, cinnamon, clove) to remember the beauty in fire when combined with the heart

compose/ write a hymn (song) or invocation (prayer) to the sekhmet template within you; share in the facebook group your creation

☥ optional: portray yourself as sekhmet in a photo or drawing to activate her template within you

our collective priestess plan:

△ breath of fire (3 rounds, 1 minute each)
△ listen to valen’s sekhmet hymn
△ fire + candle gazing (4-11 minutes…option to do longer if desired)
△ journal 10 things you’re grateful for
△ channel any guided messages or wisdom from your highest self

final assignment number one | ritual creation

january 6, 2023 with the inspiration of the full moon

due date: january 12, 2023


Under the full moon, create a sacred space and open your own portal of communion with the divine. Channel a Rite of Passage Ritual – this ritual you will then use to guide your priestess partner through her initiation of the 7-moon journey with the Mystery School of the Rose (and of course, for whatever purpose you want to use the ritual). Remember, there are always a few key elements that are a part of any ritual process:
Ritual Flow
    1. Brief hello & settling
    2. Opening with an OM
    3. Bring the energies that are meant to guide and protect the ceremony into the space (you may consider invoking the 7 goddesses of the Mystery School of the Rose)
    4. Sacred Sound/ Prayer/ Hymn Opening
    5. Sharing of intentions
    6. Purification Ritual
    8. Integration
    9. Sacred Sound/ Prayer/ Hymn Closing
    10. Closing with an OM
*the flow above is flexible; I am giving it to you as a guideline/framework to model your ritual.
(In the replay from our session on January 5, I go into more detail and offer some inspiration for bringing through your own ritual)
The ritual is due by January 12 in a step-by-step format, as you have received them from me in the handbooks in the past. Before January 21, you will connect with your priestess partner and guide each other through the rituals in the same or two separate meetings (up to your discretion).
    1. Separation from the world
    2. Entry into the other world
    3. Meeting challenges along the way (perhaps the mind)
    4. Help received from a guide (the guiding priestess)
    5. Entry into the inner sanctum
    6. Illumination (mystical experience; helicopter view; new perspective)
    7. Assimilation of the mystical experience
    8. Return to the world
*from the book Mmm Sety’s Egypt: a story of ancient mysteries, secret lives and lost history of the pharaohs

final assignment number two | final essay

due date: january 19, 2023


essay topic: my journey through the seven gates of the Mystery School of the Rose

approximately: 2500 words

Have fun with this assignment; and choose a direction with this essay that excites you. It is not black or white how this paper must be written. Below are some ideas and examples. If you are uncertain, you can speak with me privately

    • write about each gate in chronological order, including your experience with each goddess, ritual, activation and how you now embody the teachings
    • write about the core teachings you received throughout the journey
    • speak of your journey through the seven gates and how YOU have transformed; your own metamorphosis process
    • if you joined us in Egypt, you may choose to write about the journey (one moment, the whole trip, one temple…)

*the replay from January 5 has more on this –
