Also known as the blood of Isis, the tyet is an Egyptian symbol that resembles an ankh with its arms turned downwards. Based upon a verse in The Egyptian Book of the Dead, many believe it symbolises the menstrual pad of Isis and represents the magickal power of her menstrual blood.
Beginning in the pre-dynastic period in Egypt, ancient Egyptians began to design tyet amulets primarily out of glass or red stones such as carnelian and jasper. Because of what they represent, their powers are vast. As well as being one of the few symbols that can avert the dreaded evil eye, the tyet guards you against every kind of evil and enables you to travel anywhere you wish in the afterlife.
If you’re like most people today, you probably don’t have the tools or the artisanship to carve an amulet from gold or gemstones, however, you can still arm yourself with the powers of the tyet.
What you need:
- A carnelian stone, a jasper stone or a piece of red glass (such as a bead).
- A drawing of a tyet (You can use the picture in this post as a template).
- A piece of paper big enough for the stone or glass to rest on.
- A red marker.
- A flower water of your choice.
What to do:
- Draw a tyet on a piece of paper with the red marker.
- Set the stone on the drawing.
- Visualise the tyet glowing a brilliant red and sending its power into the stone.
- Leave the stone on the drawing for 24 hours.
- Immerse the stone in the flower water of your choice for an additional 24 hours.
- Remove the stone and say the following quote from an ancient spell whilst holding the stone.
The blood of Isis, and the strength of Isis, and the Words of Power of Isis shall be mighty to act as powers and protect me. They shall prevent wrong from being done to me.
- Now your stone is ready to carry or wear.
