I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.– J.K. Rowling
Once Upon A Time
Bookworms are nothing new. Even the ancient Egyptians snuggled up in a cozy blanket and dived into a great book. Of course, the ever-growing mound of books at the legendary Library of Alexandria didn’t magically appear out of thin air.
Seshat, the Egyptian goddess of writing and measurement, was the ruler of this great repository of the ancient world’s knowledge of history, science, mathematics, medicine and magic. As the Mistress of the House of Books, she cared for each scroll with a heap of TLC.
Tic Toc Tic Toc — Seshat was acutely aware of the passing of time. In her sacred study, she kept detailed records of all earthly matters upon the leaves of the persea trees. And she recorded EVERYTHING — from legal processes, deeds, and the booty seized during wars to tax records, births and deaths.
All this record keeping may sound mundane. But Seshat saw it as so much more! To truly evolve, she knew that we must learn from the past. And through writing, we have the power to turn simple words into a manifested reality. How magical is that?!
A book is a magical window into the soul of the author. As you turn each crisp page, you descend deeper and deeper into another time. From this alternate reality, the author whispers sacred wisdom into your ear.
Everyone has a book within — waiting to meet the light of day. Seshat calls on you to journal about your life and record your magical practice. What do you notice in your community during the rare Saturn Pluto meet up? Or what are your favorite herbs for healing a migraine?
As you record your findings, you begin to see divine patterns that illuminate a bigger picture. And one day, share your secrets with the world so that we can all evolve into a brighter future.
