Waters of the Night

Color of the day:  Turquoise
Incense of the day:  Myrrh

According to Egyptian lore, this is the Night of a Tear Drop. When Isis shed a tear for her lost love Osiris, the goddess Satis caught it and used it to make the Nile River flood. This flood replenished the fields, bringing good out of sorrow.

In most places, water comes from rain rather than a flooding river, but the concept still carries over. Sometimes it’s good to sit with a feeling and just let it be what it is. Tonight, go outside in a dark and quiet place. Think of something in your life that makes you sad. When the tears begin, say:

As the tears of Isis
Made the Nile rise,
May the rains of summer
Flow from my eyes.

Let your tears fall on dusty ground, then repeat the verse. Finally, let go of the sorrow, like a storm passing. In the morning, the sun will rise and bring cheerful feelings once more.
