Normandi Ellis is coauthor, with Nicki Scully, of The Union of Isis and Thoth: Magic and Initiatory Practices of Ancient Egypt. Her other books include Imagining the World into Existence: an Ancient Egyptian Manual of Consciousness; Invoking the Scribes of Ancient Egypt; and Awakening Osiris: The Egyptian Book of the Dead.
Here she describes ancient teaching associated with awakening the body of light. The pharaohs, who were considered gods, were given instruction in how to commune with the divine realms. She distinguishes between the shadow body (khaibet) and the light body (sahu). She describes the esoteric process by which she and Nicki Scully created an imaginal temple as a home for the Egyptian neteru – or deities. She vividly explains how the neteru have become living presences within her mind.
