Goddess Nephthys:

Nephthys is a prominent figure in ancient Egyptian mythology, often depicted as a goddess associated with mourning, lamentation, protection, and the afterlife. She is one of the daughters of Geb (the earth god) and Nut (the sky goddess), making her a sister to Osiris, Isis, and Seth.

Nephthys is frequently portrayed as the loyal companion and protector of her sister, Isis. Together, they were often depicted as two mourning women, mourning the death of Osiris or accompanying the deceased on their journey to the afterlife. Nephthys played a crucial role in the Osiris myth, as she helped Isis in gathering the scattered parts of Osiris's body after he was murdered by Seth.

In addition to her association with mourning and protection, Nephthys was also considered a guardian of the dead and a mistress of magic. She was believed to watch over the deceased and offer them protection in the afterlife. Nephthys was sometimes depicted with the wings of a hawk or as a kite bird, symbolizing her role in guiding souls in the afterlife.

Despite being overshadowed by her more famous siblings, particularly Isis and Osiris, Nephthys held an important place in Egyptian mythology and religious beliefs. She represented essential aspects of life and death, serving as a comforting presence for the deceased and a protector of the living.

Visualization Exercise 

A guided visualization inspired by the mythology of Goddess Nyphthys:

Close your eyes and take a deep breath, allowing yourself to sink into a state of relaxation. Imagine yourself standing at the edge of a vast desert at twilight. The sky is painted with hues of deep purples and oranges as the sun sets behind the distant dunes.

As you stand there, you notice a gentle breeze brushing against your skin, carrying with it the scent of sand and ancient wisdom. In the distance, a figure begins to materialize, gliding gracefully towards you. It is Nephthys, the Egyptian goddess of transformation and protection.

Nephthys approaches you with a serene presence, her form radiating a soft, comforting light. She extends her hand to you, inviting you to join her on a journey of inner exploration. With a sense of trust and curiosity, you take her hand, feeling a warm, reassuring energy flow through you.

Together, you begin to walk through the desert, the soft sand cushioning your steps. With each footfall, you feel a sense of grounding and connection to the earth beneath you. As you walk, Nephthys guides you through a series of ancient ruins, symbols of the past and the mysteries they hold.

As you explore these ruins, you feel a sense of awe and wonder at the ancient knowledge they contain. Nephthys gently encourages you to let go of any fears or doubts, allowing yourself to open up to the wisdom of the ages.

As you continue your journey, you come upon a shimmering oasis, a sanctuary of peace and serenity. Nephthys leads you to the water's edge, where you see your reflection gazing back at you. In this moment, you recognize the strength and beauty within yourself, guided by the presence of Nephthys.

With a sense of gratitude, you thank Nephthys for her guidance and support. As she begins to fade into the twilight, she leaves you with a parting blessing, filling you with a renewed sense of purpose and clarity.

Slowly, you begin to return to the present moment, carrying with you the wisdom and insight gained from your journey with Nephthys. With each breath, you feel a deep sense of peace and empowerment, ready to embrace whatever transformation lies ahead.

Daily Ritual

In honor of Nephthys:

Creating a ritual to honor Nephthys can be a deeply personal and meaningful experience. Here's a simple yet beautiful ritual you can perform:

Materials Needed:

1. A candle (preferably black or deep purple)
2. Sandalwood incense or essential oil
3. A small bowl of water
4. A black or purple cloth
5. A piece of paper and a pen
6. Optional: Symbols or images representing Nephthys, such as an image or statue



Find a quiet and sacred space where you can perform your ritual undisturbed.
Lay out the black or purple cloth on a flat surface, creating a sacred altar space.
Place the candle in the center of the altar, along with the bowl of water and the incense.
If you have any symbols or images representing Nephthys, place them on the altar as well.


Take a moment to center yourself and clear your mind. Take several deep breaths, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth.
Light the sandalwood incense and allow the smoke to cleanse the space around you. As you do so, visualize any negative energies being released and replaced with purity and light.


Light the candle, focusing on the flame as a symbol of Nephthys's presence.
Speak aloud or silently offer a prayer or invocation to Nephthys, calling upon her for guidance, protection, and transformation. You can use your own words or a traditional prayer dedicated to her.


Take the piece of paper and pen, and reflect on areas of your life where you seek transformation or guidance. Write down any thoughts, feelings, or intentions you wish to release or manifest.


Dip your fingers into the bowl of water and sprinkle a few drops onto the piece of paper, symbolizing purification and renewal.
Place the paper in front of the candle, allowing the flame to gently illuminate your intentions.


Close your eyes and enter into a state of meditation. Visualize yourself surrounded by Nephthys's protective energy, feeling her presence embracing you with love and support.
Spend some time in silent reflection, allowing any insights or messages from Nephthys to come through.


When you feel ready, express gratitude to Nephthys for her guidance and presence. Blow out the candle, symbolizing the end of the ritual.
You can choose to keep the piece of paper with your intentions on your altar as a reminder of your connection to Nephthys, or you may choose to bury it in the earth as a way of grounding your intentions and allowing them to manifest.

Remember, rituals are deeply personal, so feel free to modify this ritual to better suit your own spiritual practice and connection with Nephthys.

An invocation for Nephthys:

"O Nephthys, guardian of the night, Keeper of the sacred flame burning bright, Goddess of transformation and change, In your presence, we feel no estrange.

Mistress of magic, of secrets untold, In your embrace, our fears unfold, With wings of the hawk, you soar high, Guiding our souls through the starry sky.

Nephthys, hear our call this hour, Grant us wisdom, strength, and power, As we journey through life's winding maze, Illuminate our path with your guiding blaze.

Protectress of the lost and forlorn, In your presence, we are reborn, Wrap us in your comforting embrace, And lead us to a sacred place.

Ancient one, of shadows and light, Guide us through the darkest night, With your grace, may we find our way, As we walk beneath your gentle sway.

Nephthys, hear our fervent plea, Bless us with your energy, In your name, we stand tall and true, Forever in reverence, we honor you."
