A Tribute to a Great Lady
Some people are born to a destiny that they cannot avoid. Their work in the world and the effect that work will have upon others is fixed in the stars that overlook their birth. They become a Lodestone, drawing those of a like mind and purpose into their orbit and passing on to them the training, information, and encouragement they need.
Olivia was indeed one of these special souls. She was touched by that indefinable presence that makes you know at the first meeting you stand in the presence of real Power.
Yet despite such Presence she was approachable, with a gentle sense of humour and a genuine love of those for whom she made herself responsible. The worldwide organisation she brought into being changed the lives of so many people. If Isis is, was, and will be the Great Mother, then Olivia was her surrogate destined to do the work of the Goddess on earth.
Her lifework was a continuous invocation to her Goddess, and her work will go on. Like all initiates she took care to pass the reins into new and well trained hands. But her like will not come again. She was above all else a devoted priestess of Isis.
May the Boat of a Million Years carry you gently into Amenti.
