I have been sharing snippets from my current WIP, Book 2 of my Illuminati series, The Tree of Life. When we left off last week, Isis had just ordered her sons to hold the tribeswoman Kirin has been treating still. The young woman is strapped to a gurney, in a zombie-like state, unaware of her surroundings, violently convulsing and pulling against her restraints.
Isis moved forward and placed her hands above the tribe woman’s chest. Her hands were surrounded by a soft bluish glow and hovered just above the quaking form, projecting energy, like a light source, into the woman’s body as they moved upward to the woman’s face where Isis placed her palms against the woman’s temples. The woman’s seizures ended and as she stilled, her eyes closed as if in slumber.
The light surrounding Isis’ hands intensified, and she chanted softly, “I, Isis, Mother of Nations, whose very incantation is life, beseech thee, The Ancients, Those Who Came Before, lend me your power, your wisdom, your magic, that I may see, that I may know, that I may heal.” The light now enveloped the tribewoman’s entire body, glowing first blue, then pink and then Andrew and Luc closed their eyes and turned their heads aside as the light became so intense only Isis was able to endure the bright yellow and flaming orange glow of Ra’s glory. Slowly the light softened and dimmed, returned to iridescent blue that flowed back into Isis’ hands.
The young woman’s chest rose and fell slowly. Her eyelids quivered, and opened, revealing clear, brown eyes, confused and mildly frightened, but not vacant or hysterical.
Isis looked up at her sons and said, “I have discovered the source of their illness and know how to extract a cure. We must find The Eye of Horus. Go make preparations to go home to Egypt.”
I blog there the 18th of each month!
