Prayer to Isis


To the ancient Egyptians, Isis was the Virgin Mother goddess.  As the personification of the natural world and its cyclic rhythms of change, Isis was also considered the Goddess of Death and Rebirth.  The following modern-day prayer pays homage to this ancient goddess


Dear Isis, goddess of Death and Rebirth, help me to always remember the joy of living on this beautiful planet.

Let me not fear death, whether it be physical death, or the little deaths of the phases of my life.

Mother, teach me to accept my life’s natural cycles, so that I may learn to release the old and embrace the new without attachment.

I pray that my endings be peaceful, and that my beginnings be blessed.

May my prayers and actions benefit all beings.
