Myth of Mummification

-Isis and Osiris  vs Nephthys and Seth

-Seth tricks Osiris, encases him in a chest, throws it into a river

-The chest grows into a tree, which gets used to build a Palace

-Isis retrieves the body and Seth chops it into 14 pieces, scattered throughout Egypt

-She found all pieces, except one: the phallus, thrown into the river and eaten by a fish

– Isis reassembled the pieces, fashioned a phallus out of stone (the first magickal dildo!) and reanimated him (thus turned him into the God of the Underworld) with a magickal incantation—and thus the practice of mummification was born.

Once Mummified

“Grant thou that breathing may take place in the head of the deceased in the underworld, and that he may see with his eyes, and that he may hear with his two ears; and that he may breathe through his nose; and that he may be able to utter sounds with his mouth; and that he may be able to speak with his tongue in the under world [add your own deceased functions as appropriate!]”

Not to Let the Spirit Die (an approach to endurance mummification)

-O you who take away and bring days to an end, do not take away my years or bring my days to an end, for I am Horus, Lord of the Netherworld, Monarch of the Western Horizon.  I will not die in the West, and the messengers of Osiris have no power over me, for I am Horus, son of Osiris.  I will not die on On, Kherehaha, or the East, and the messengers of Soped have no power over me, for I am Horus, son of Osiris. I will not die in the South, and the messengers of Horus have no power over me, for I am Horus, Son of Osiris. I will not die in the North and the messengers of the Outcast have no power over me, for I am Horus, son of Osiris, I will not die in the waters, and the messengers of those who are in the waters have no power over me, for I am Horus, son of Osiris.

-I will not die in the abyss, and the messengers of those who are in the Abyss have no power over me, for I am Horus, son of Osiris.

-I will not die a second time, and the dwellers in the Netherworld have no power over me. I will not eat their fish, their fowl shall not scream over me, for I am Horus, son of Osiris.

Spell: To Have Dreams/To have Knowledge brought to you in dreams

Wrapped the Mummy in linen, covered in oil and wax

Carve or scribe the words: Armiuth, Larlamchouch, Arsenophrephren, Phtha, Archentechtha.

Remove with revealing the Mummy, and wrap the linen into a lamp-wick, or prepare it to burn in oil. In an evening prepared for ritual (here defined as pure-without food or other “defilement” J), when you are preparing to go to bed, set the “lamp” to fire and repeat this spell 7 times:

Sachmu apaema Ligotereeench: the Aeon, the Thunderer, Thou hast swallowed the snake and dost exhaust the moon, and dost raise up the orb of the sun in his season, Cthetho is thy name; I require, O lords of the gods, Seth, Chreps, give me the information I desire.
