Egyptian Dream Scrying

To ancient Egyptians, dreams were a powerful way for gods to pass messages to humanity. Dream scrying was an effective way to define the future. Records of their attempts extend back over 5000 years, and had a profound influence on the civilized nations of ancient Greece and Rome.

Dream scrying is a powerful technique to get in touch with a higher power. In this article, you will learn the ritual technique for dream scrying. Before you begin, you must understand that the answer will come to you in a dream. Make sure you have a pen and paper or a tape recorder near your bed to record your dream as soon as you awaken. If you don’t record it immediately, it is likely that, like all dreams, it will simply slip away through the morning.

Are you ready? Then let’s begin.

Prepare your mind and body for the scrying. Spend the day in solitude, preparing your mind. Remain alone for the rest of the day. Do not drink alcohol or engage in sexual activities. Do not consume any food within four hours of beginning. You can spend this time gathering the items you will need – olive oil, a length of white linen, another length of black linen, and an oil lamp.

Before bed, take a warm bath. Use this time to relax your body and mind. Anoint your temples with a small amount of olive oil as you leave the tub.

On the strip of white linen, write down the reason for your dream scrying, and include the name of the Egyptian god. Twist this small strip of linen into a wick, tehn insert the wick into the oil lamp. Place a lamp on your bedside table. Draw the image of the dream God onto your left palm in ink.

Light your lamp and kneel before it. Recite the following invocation, concentrating on the image drawn on your left hand:

Thoth, I invoke, blessed power of dreams define,
Angel of future fates, swift wings are thine,
Great source of oracles to human kind,
When stealing soft, and whispering to the mind,
Through sleep’s sweet silence and the gloom of night,
Thy power a wake the sight,
Two silent souls the will of Heaven relates,
And silently reveals their future fates.

As you concentrate on your question, wrap a length of black linen around your left hand.
This cloth should measure approximately 4 inches wide by 30 inches long. It is referred to as the Magic of Isis.

Now blow out the lamp, let your mind rest, and go to sleep. Your dream will often have a clear, powerful voice. The messages may be symbolic, and you may have to de-cipher them. These symbols can be archetypes of your subconscious mind. A dream dictionary can help you interpret the symbols and messages you receive.
