Sekhmet’s Sacred Annointing Oil

This special anointing oil was Blended and Blessed in Her Nevada temple as the Super Moon was rising on November 14, 2016.  The oil was then taken to the center of the Labyrinth and placed between the Goddess’s hands to charge beneath the energizing rays of this once-in-a-lifetime Super Moon.  The oil can be used for anointing during your special ceremonies or rituals.  It can be diffused for aromatherapy or to strengthen your bond to Sekhmet or Her temple.  Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and allow the subtle aromas to transport you to Her temple at Cactus Springs, or perhaps all the way to Egypt.  This anointing oil uses a base of extra virgin olive oil and a special Sekhmet-inspired blend of essential oils to create a unique spiritual experience.

Oils to Connect with Sekhmet:

Bergamot – dispels fear; uplifting; antidepressant
Cedar – strengthening; stimulant; connects to the ancient world
Cypress – opening; improves spiritual communication
Frankincense – purification; meditative; connects to ancient world
Sage – purification; enhances memory and concentration

Elemental Oils:

EARTH: Silver Fir Needle – uplifting; stimulation; motivation
WATER: Lavender – psychic awareness; healing; spirituality; relaxation for meditation
AIR: Lemon – renewing; inspiring; motivation
FIRE: Cinnamon – strength; protection; sexual energy

It will be many years before the moon is this close to the Earth again.  We only have a limited supply of this powerful, Lunar-enhanced oil available.  When it is gone, it is gone forever.  It is only available at the Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet.  We have packaged this oil in a unique red one-ounce bottle.  It is available for $5 per ounce.  Shipping and handling is an additional $2 if you cannot pick it up at the temple.  All proceeds benefit the Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet.

October 2016 Events at the Temple

Hello Family!

We have an amazing October planned for you! Please mark your calendar for these upcoming events.

Saturday, October 15 – We have the honor of hosting Vegas Vortex’ Bone Dance again this year! Please see their site for details of this all night drumming circle extraordinaire!.

Sunday, October 16t – Full Moon Celebration – Potluck in the Pavilion at 7:00 pm, followed by ritual in the Temple at 8:00. (no silent auction- it will be at the Samhain event instead!)

This month’s ritual theme will focus on “essentials,” and we will honor the Goddess Ma’at.

Monday, October 31 – Two  Samhain rituals!

Silent Auction from 7:00 pm til 7:45 in the Pavilion (a wonderful and fun way to support the Temple!)

1st Ritual – We will gather in the Pavilion at 7:00 pm (food blessings at 7:05) for a special potluck honoring our ancestors. Please bring a favorite dish of someone who has passed, and whom you wish to honor. We will go around the group asking anyone who wants to share a few words about the dish and the person it honors.

There will be an ancestor altar set up in front of the beautiful Sekhmet mural in the social area. (Weather permitting, there will be a fire in the social area as well.)  Please bring a photo or other memento to place on the altar (remembering to reclaim it at the end of the evening).

We will walk to the first bridge nearest the Pavilion , be smudged, and learn a simple chant.  We will sing it as we proceed to the Ancestor Altar and light a candle, before entering the Temple for the evening’s first ritual, Honoring our Ancestors.

2nd Ritual will be at 11:30 pm and continue through midnight. In honor of third and last harvest, we will celebrate what we have completed and now need to leave behind, and what we want to bring into our lives. After that, we will explore Inanna’s Descent to the Underworld to visit Her sister, Ereshkigal.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Blessings,
Candace
