Here is a great chapter by Ani the Scribe, that is from the Book of the Dead called: Making the Transformation Into a Hawk of Gold that alludes to the secret teachings of alchemy and Gnosis. It goes along the lines of the ancient alchemists, who had allegorically transmuted lead into gold, and who in reality were activating their souls and higher selves through their chemical energies that they had hoped to master.
Much like Osiris, who in this chapter is like the golden hawk which cometh forth from his egg and declares, “I am master over myself and over the attributes of my head.”
Simply put, if you cannot master your thoughts or yourself, you will not turn lead into gold such like the golden hawk which cometh forth from his egg. This means that your animal self which is your body and brain, has dominion over your soul, mind and spirit, which is the light within your blood.
Making the Transformation Into a Hawk of Gold – The Osiris Ani saith:
I have risen up out of the seshett chamber, like
the golden hawk which cometh forth from his egg. I fly, I alight like a
hawk with a back of seven cubits, and the wings of which are like unto
the mother-of-emerald of the South. I have come forth from the Sektet
Boat, and my heart hath been brought unto me from the mountain of the
East. I have alighted on the Atet Boat, and there have been brought unto
me those who dwelt in their substance, and they bowed in homage before
me. I have risen, I have gathered myself together like a beautiful golden
hawk, with the head of the Benu (phoenix), and Ra hath entered in to hear my
speech]. I have taken my seat among the great gods, [the children of]
Nut. I have settled myself, the Sekhet-hetepet (the Field of Offerings)
is before me. I eat therein, I become a Spirit-soul therein, I am
supplied with food in abundance therein, as much as I desire. The Grain-
god (Nepra) hath given unto me food for my throat, and I am master over
myself and over the attributes of my head.
