allowing time for each Name
to pass through your conscious mind
and into your unconscious, there taking root.
In this way, you will begin to experience much more fully
the powerful Reality that is Sekhmet.
And, as you do that, frequently let your eyes
rest on the image of Sekhmet
on the page containing the Names of Sekhmet.
That will further the same purpose as savoring the Names—
the Goddess will become active within you,
and you will become one born of Sekhmet,
the Great Mother.
You can begin to experience the trances
that will lead you towards The Way of the Five Bodies.
Intend to go deeper into trance, into the Mystery,
and you will go deeper as you contemplate the Names,
as you contemplate the images.
