About this book

The author of The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar is a shaman – someone who gets guidance from the spirits in the other dimensions.

So this book is about sex magic across dimensions that leads to greater self empowerment and creative intelligence, which she has been taught by her guiding spirits, over decades. Ishtar explains, however, that this is not a New Age teaching, but a very old one, and that she is merely reconstituting a practice in which our earlier ancestors were skilled and which they valued highly as a means of spiritual evolution.

In Part I, Ishtar lays the foundation stone for this teaching by showing the ancient artwork, iconography and orally transmitted lore underlying these sacred shamanic sex practices, which seem to have fallen out of favour after the destruction of the Mystery Groves and the Library of Alexandria.

Ishtar uses erotic poetry and engravings from ancient Egypt, Crete, India, Sumer and Babylon to show that sacred sex was part of the Kingship rites, and that the spirits were present in the lovemaking. She also finds evidence for the practice of the Faery Marriage, and what she believes is the original meaning of the Holy Grael which can be traced back to Neanderthals about 45,000 years ago.

Ishtar unravels ancient myths to show that they are really “Trojan horses” of sacred dramas which carry the secret keys of this ancient sex magic teaching. She is also the first to discover the allegorical sub-strata containing the keys to shamanic sex magic in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, based on alchemy and the Alchemical Marriage. She gives the same treatment to the story of the Woman at the Well in the Gospel of John.

Ishtar also describes how Babylon has been deliberately demonised by who we now call the Zionists and their proxy armies who have, for millennia, been trying to turn it into a pile of rubble. This is because of the power of the sacred geometry created by the Ishtar Gate and the Tower of Babylon, she says, which created the conditions for a portal, or a ‘Stargate’, into other dimensions.

In Part II of The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar, Ishtar shows the metaphysical anatomy of the human being, and then reveals the secret techniques of shamanic sex magic, so that people can try them for themselves.

Although this may seem like quite a complex subject, her past experience as a national newspaper journalist in the UK – Sunday Times, Sunday Express, Mail on Sunday – has given Ishtar the ability to explain some quite dense material in simple everyday language to produce an engaging, page-turner of a book. She also writes with great humour!

    This is a beautiful starting point to a wondrous path. I have followed a similar journey over the past thirteen years that even led me to building a home in Egypt which I visit as often as possible. Although I may not have spent my time with such dedicated focus as many who will visit this place, some personally enlightening thoughts on the subject have come my way. Initially these thoughts manifested themselves in the form of grave doubts as to the time line so often attached to this secret knowledge – and secret for a reason. It seems these musings are hardly original, but begin something like this.

    Nobody would argue (least of all the Christians) that their adopted symbol for the past 2000yrs has been the fish, though they may be reluctant to acknowledge its connection to the Pisces of the Zodiac – all dominant religions have adopted the zodiac sign prevalent to their time as ordained by the precession of the Earth’s axis through the astrological chart. Thus the sphynxs of Luxor have the head and body of a ram, 2000yrs previously the Minoans had the Bull of Taurus etc etc. Although the Sphynx of Giza has the graffitied head of a pharoah, the body is undoubtedly a lion, placing the likely age of the original construction between 6 – 8000BC; substantially earlier than the mainstream Egyptologists dating of the sphynx.

    If the dominant religion of our own Age has forgotten its true meaning (and very few would EVER have known the real truth) in two thousand years, then why would we expect any difference for those that went before – even if they shared a common root. When the truth was lost, it becomes replaced with a farcical and literal interpretation of the story that was never meant to be anything other than a memorable framework from which to hang the secret.

    Start to question now whether the pyramids are extraordinary lavish tombs, or spiritual centres where the chosen would choose to be buried ……. Newgrange in Ireland may help with this paradigm shift in thought ~ a construction that is dated at over 5000 BC but whose influence and supporting knowledge could conceivably have come from Egypt. If you ever bought an authentic cushion in Egypt and compared it to local Celtic designs in Ireland, you would be incredulous as to what your eyes were showing you.

    Brilliant post- it is so easy to forget that sex is such a beauty, such a power. Ishtar Herself is the Lady of Sex (amongst other things), and teaches us to revel in the passion she instills in our hearts.

    I wrote a poem about this on entitled ‘prayer to Ishtar’, if you’re interested :)

    But yes, I find it so sad that the pseudo-theocratical society of today denounces sex as vile and dirty, when it is in fact celebratory of our own divinity, and that of the gods, by its very nature. BB.x
