The Osirian Mysteries were intended to awaken the individual’s consciousness to the reality of the eternal soul. The ancient Egyptians’ pursuit of spiritual enlightenment and soul liberation was obsessive.
The prize of transcending the limitations of the physical world and connecting with the eternal realm was considered priceless. It reverberated in their hearts, guiding them to live a life in accordance with the divine principles they had encountered.
Through a combination of “hypnotic, magical, and spiritual forces”* the participants sought to detach their souls from the confines of their physical bodies, sometimes for days.
*Quote from Paul Brunton, a British philosopher, researcher, mystic, and adventurer… in his book a Search in Secret Egypt he seeks to discover the furthest reaches of what the mind and body are capable of, leading him to the myth of Osiris and to the mystery that is the Sphinx itself.
This temporary separation of their soul from their physical bodies, allowed them to transcend the limitations of the flesh and experience a profound connection with the divine itself.
The Osirian Mysteries of Ancient Egypt
The aim of the Osirian Mysteries was to accelerate a profound spiritual awakening and transformation within the initiates. By temporarily liberating their souls from the burdens of the physical body, the participants experienced a glimpse of the eternal realm.
The initiation process in the Osirian Mysteries was not a one-time event but a journey that spanned several years. Initiates underwent a series of stages and purification and other rituals, gradually deepening their understanding and connection to the mysteries.
The length of the initiation process allowed for a more profound and transformative experience. Building up to the full Soul Liberation experience. The time taken meant the initiate was more invested and gained greater transformation from the process.
This transformative encounter with the divine left an indelible mark on their consciousness, guiding their thoughts, actions, and attitudes henceforth. The profound encounter with the eternal served as a constant reminder of the interconnectedness of all things and the importance of aligning their actions with higher spiritual principles.
