Nicki Scully has been teaching healing, shamanic arts, and the Egyptian mysteries since 1983. She is coauthor, with Normandi Ellis, of The Union of Isis and Thoth: Magic and Initiatory Practices of Ancient Egypt. Her other books include Planetary Healing: Spirit Medicine for Global Transformation; Alchemical Healing; Power Animal Meditations: Shamanic Journeys with Your Spirit Allies; The Anubis Oracle: A Journey into the Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt; and Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt: Awakening the Healing Power of the Heart.
Here she describes the shamanic path as generally starting with an illness that the shaman to be must learn to heal. On occasions, this condition may be misdiagnosed by the medical profession as a form of mental illness. She points out that, while some may not associate the high culture of ancient Egypt with shamanism, the Egyptian gods represent the various animal powers. The Egyptian temple initiation rites involve shamanic instructions concerning travel between the worlds. She notes that it is possible to weave together different shamanic traditions like the plaits of a braid.
