The past few weeks really took me by surprise when I saw the name ISIS emerge in the news. A group of Islamic terrorists employ the name ISIS to stand for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. I asked myself, "What the heck is going on here?" A third of me was enraged that such a group that does everything it can to destroy the feminine could call itself ISIS, the name of one of the greatest Egyptian goddesses, indeed universal goddesses, of all time. The second third of me was finding humor in it, surely there must be a paradox here. And the other third was wondering what's the underlying message - the collective unconscious or subconscious of our planet. Even news programs were not making the connection between
ISIS and Isis (the goddess). I tweeted several of them about this, but even so nobody said a word. So, as usual, it became "if you want something done right, do it yourself". I consulted my soul and spirit friends for their input.
Currently goddess awareness, feminine energy, authentic power in the collective consciousness is on the rise. However, there are forces at play that are against that, are for the old guard, the patriarchy, the ways of domination and intimidation, snuffing out the goddess and feminine [Torah, through Shawn Randall]. I never understood these radical Islamists who treat women so horribly when it is the women who give birth to them, raise them, teach them. This is the thanks women get? They are just here to pop out more male terrorists then kill the women? And they expect normal people to believe this is acting divinely? That's insanity right there.
Isis was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, and the downtrodden, but she also listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers. Isis is often depicted as the mother of Horus and is known as a protector of the dead and goddess of children.
The name Isis means "throne". Her headdress is a throne. She represented the power of the pharaoh. The pharaoh was depicted as her child, who sat on the throne she provided, and she nurtured her son.
Interestingly enough this ISIS gang of thugs does not know of the goddess Isis at all! They have no connection to the heritage of the past. They are focused on now and the future. Their name is based on their concept of self as Islamic militants from Iraq and Syria. They bridge the boundaries of these two countries and are bigger than that is their arrogant take on it. They are not bound to countries' governments. They are of the Islamic spiritual that transcends the boundaries. For certain their goal is world domination through intimidation and violence.
It just so happens it spells Isis, but the meaning of it is a double irony because they are a force that is trying to submerge the powerful feminine. To take a feminine goddess image, Isis, and denigrate it by giving it her name to their cause, which is all about domination, is like a terrible paradox. It can help point out to people the patriarchal domination of these groups, the contrast, so that one can become aware that there are still these hostile forces, dominating, patriarchal, which is completely opposite the divine feminine, which is seeking balance in the world. The divine feminine isn't trying to dominate in the world; it is trying to seek balance.
It's an irony and doesn't really make sense but draws attention to the contrasts of what that group is all about and what the collective consciousness really wants. It is bringing about some very strange alliances between Iraq and Iran, for instance. There may be some very high evolutionary purpose being played out by this paradox. [Torah, through Shawn Randall] I would love to see the faces of these thugs if and when they finally realize what they have done by choosing the goddess Isis for their name! This is their own undoing, in my opinion.
So, what can we do about it? Not tolerate it at all. Every government that abhors such behavior and ideals must put an end to it as soon as possible. This includes the otrocities against women and freedom in Africa and India, anywhere it is present. As for ourselves, we can sit with it and realize that the group has no clue about the goddess and yet they chose that name. Funny isn't it? So in this bizarre way, they might actually be doing a service to all of us because we can choose to say NO MORE to this insane kind of violence, domination, patriarchy, and honor the feminine and creating a balance on our planet. With today being the Summer Solstice, we have the longest day of the year, the most light of the year. Let us use this to shine a light on this entire situation.
What would the goddess Isis say about this all of this? "Thanks for resurrecting me in your conscious minds once again and bringing to the forefront the love and importance of the divine feminine energy which is so needed on this planet at this time. You are evolving so quickly now and ready transform yourselves into a magnificent planet of more creativity, healing, light and love than ever before. You have saved your planet from destruction for this very reason. Remember your own divine source and live more divinely on Earth." Thank you, Isis. We love you.
Nearly two weeks after writing this article I bought a new cell phone. I practically fell over when I saw a new app for the phone that will allow the phone to act as a credit card to make purchases. The name of this app is, (what else?) ISIS! I think it's very clear that Isis and goddess consciousness, the goddess archetype, really wants to be acknowledged now!
