Holy Blood

From Barbara G. Walker's The Woman's Eyclopedia of Myths and Secrets (just because I'm in that kind of mood tonight). 

Egyptian word of the holy blood of Isis, which made pharaohs and other selected heroes immortal; counterpart of the Hindu soma, the divine fluid of sovereignty and eternal life manifested in many ways, but basically derived from the Goddess's menstrual blood.  As the Egyptian Great Mother's "wise blood," sa was said to contain the spirit of all intelligence.(1)
