Breathing in the Goddess

This exercise has been taken from Z Budapest's Dianic University sample lecture.  I personally like it because it helps to make us aware of the Universe, the cosmos around us - not to mention our place within it.


Hold up your hands to the Heavens and breathe in deeply seven times, each time follow your breath with your consciousness to each part of your body, starting from the head, moving to your throat, your heart, your breasts your solar plexus, to your genitals and finally to your feet. With each breath you are bringing in blessings from the Universe.

When you have felt a deep inner calm, and are filled with a simple of peaceful glow, kiss your hands. Yes. Plant a big kiss, one each hand, now. Don't ask. Just do.

Everything that is mine is thine,
Everything that is thine is mine,
tout tout throughout and about*.

This is a very to-the-point identification with the Deity ritual. Feel the self-kiss on your lips. Smell the scent of your own flesh. Know that's it's you that you have kissed. Feel compassion towards that woman. Imagine all the works your hands have been doing for you. We are made of the same stuff as the Universe. Everything in us is the same as what is in the stars and planets, and in all life on Earth, and wherever else there may be life.

Imagine! You are made of stars. You are the reason why gases congealed and created planets and stars exploded, and re-gathered again. You are the end result of billion and billions of years of evolution. You are the crowning of many, many deaths. You are standing on the bones of your ancestors. Let this sink in.

*Note: The last line of this invocation is from a very old chant which was recorded in a witch trial. So you are not only offering yourself to the Goddess, and receiving all from the Goddess. You are also joining in the dance which the Wytches of old danced with each other and with their Goddess. Think about this also.

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
