Narrow Strip of White Linen
Ink Mixed with Myrrh
Strip of Black Linen
Egyptian dream scrying may be traced back thousands of years. The method used by the Egyptians was recorded in the Greek magical papyri, which were written between 200 B.C. to 500 A.D.
In preparing to use the Egyptian dream scrying method you must not speak to anyone on the evening you plan to scry. You should remain in silence after the setting of the sun. Do not consume alcohol on that day or engage in sex. You must refrain from consuming food for up to four hours
before the scrying. After having a warm bath you anoint your temples with olive oil. You will need an oil lamp which must not be colored red or bear any inscription. Write on a short narrow strip of
white linen with ink mixed with myrrh the name of the dream God and the purpose for the dream scrying. Twist the linen strip into a wick and insert into the oil of the lamp. Place the lamp on a table beside your bed. Using the ink draw the image of the dream God upon your left palm. You must decide which God or Goddess you wish to use. Thoth was well used with the Egyptians.
Light your lamp. Kneel before the lamp. Concentrating on the image on your left hand recite the following invocation:
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 awake the sight,
To silent souls the will of heaven relates,
And silently reveals their future fates.
You need to concentrate on your question you wish to know the answer to. Around your left hand Wrap a piece of black linen about four inches wide and about thirty inches long. The black cloth is called "black" of Isis. Blow out the flame of the lamp. Now go to bed, clear your mind and go to sleep. Have a tape recorder or dream journal beside your bed so that when you awaken you may record your dreams while still fresh in your mind. You will find that the dream will come to you in a voice that is clear and powerful rather than in dream images. Sometimes the message is sent in cryptic form so take your time in working out the answer.
