Once balance has been restored Sekhmet becomes the consort (wife) of Ptah and together they give birth to Nefertum, a healing god who predates Aesclepius. Sekhmet, Ptah and Nefertum are referred to as the Memphis trio, known for their healing abilities and maintaining the cosmic balance Sekhmet was sent to restore.
Their relationship represents the gift of co-creative, conscious, collaborative relationship. They represent the outer sacred marriage that is possible when inner wholeness is the beginning point.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be
brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
~ Marianne Williamson from A Return To Love
