About Imagining the World into Existence
Reveals the secret language and words of power that enabled the ancient Egyptians to imagine the world into existence
• Reveals ancient Egyptian Mystery teachings on immaculate conception, transubstantiation, resurrection, and eternal life
• Explores the shamanic journeys that ancient Egyptian priests used to view the unconscious and the afterlife
• Provides the essential spiritual tools needed to return to Zep Tepi, the creative source
Drawing from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Pyramid texts, the Book of Thoth, and other sacred hieroglyphic writings spanning the three millennia of the Egyptian Mystery Traditions, Normandi Ellis reveals the magical language of creation and words of power that enabled the ancient Egyptians to act as co-creators with the gods.
Examining the power of hieroglyphic thinking--how thoughts create reality--and the multiple meanings behind every word of power, the author shows how, with the Neteru, we imagine the world into existence, casting a spell of consciousness over the material world. Uncovering the deep layers of meaning and symbol within the myths of the Egyptian gods and goddesses, Ellis investigates the shamanic journeys that ancient Egyptian priests used to view the unconscious and the afterlife and shares their initiations for immaculate conception, transubstantiation, resurrection, and eternal life—initiations that later became part of the Christian mystery school. Revealing the words of power used by these ancient priests/sorcerers, she explains how to search for the deeper, hidden truths beneath their spells and shows how ancient Egyptian consciousness holds the secret of life itself.
Revealing the initiatory secrets of the Osirian Mystery school, Ellis provides the essential teachings and shamanic tools needed to return to Zep Tepi--the creative source--as we face the transitional time of radical change currently at hand.

Praise for Imagining the World into Existence
“Normandi Ellis’ work of a lifetime began when she wrote Awakening Osiris, her ecstatic translation of the hieroglyphs found in the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead. It culminates nearly 30 years hence in her newest book Imagining the World into Existence. In 1988, she said: ‘We make of ourselves what we imagine.’ Now, in 2012, we see she has imagined well.”
Alan Richardson, co-author of The Inner Guide to Egypt
“Normandi Ellis takes her reader on an extraordinary journey into the myths and magic of Ancient Egypt. And the journey is as beautiful, fragrant and mysterious as Egypt itself.”
Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy, authors of The Hermetica and The Jesus Mysteries
“This remarkable book emulates Egypt itself; it fuses philosophy, religion, art and science into a single inextricable Unity. Like an accomplished Egyptian temple or sculpture, it looks effortless yet is extremely subtle and complex. It resonates Egypt. It ‘breathes’ Egypt. It is almost like actually being there! Not many books do that.”
John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky and The Traveler's Key to Ancient Egypt
“Bravo! At last, the book from Normandi Ellis we have all been waiting for! Her knowledge and direct connection to the myths, the glyphs, and the symbolism of ancient Egypt have given us the clearest statement ever of the cosmology and relevant truths written in the scrolls. This book is a must for anyone seriously interested in the magic of ancient Egypt. I’m awed and inspired by its brilliance!”
Nicki Scully, co-author of Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt and The Anubis Oracle
“Normandi Ellis is unique in understanding the deeper aspects of human existence and the way the ancients perceived the world. This is an excellent book. Read it!”
Robert Bauval, co-author of The Orion Mystery and Black Genesis
“Normandi Ellis’ magnificent Imagining the World into Existence: An Ancient Egyptian Manual of Consciousness is a breakthrough of holistic literature at this crucial time. She creates a new language of holism, thereby completing the task that academics — split from by disciplinary boundaries and linear subject/object orientation of language — have failed to even identify. At the crucial impasse faced by humanity today, we all can benefit from Ellis’ warning: ‘Failing to make conscious life changes because we fear the big turnaround leases us down a destructive and disorientating path.’”
Lisa Paul Streitfeld, Huffington Post, September 2012
“Revealing the initiatory secrets of the Osirian Mystery school, Ellis provides the essential teachings and shamanic tools needed to return to Zep Tepi-the creative source-as we face the transitional time of radical change currently at hand.”
Branches of Light, October 2012
“What Ellis reveals...is relevant for anyone who wants to know how our thoughts create our reality, or who is interested in the ancient Egyptian cosmic mindset and how it may inform us as we face future challenges.”
Nexus Magazine, December 2012
“Imagining the World Into Existence weaves with great detail a map of the consciousness of this magical realm from our past. And what’s particularly striking is how closely the consciousness of ancient Egypt resembles the evolving consciousness of today.”
