A description of the experience

The Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead – translated by R O Faulkner  
Spell 76 – spell for being transformed into any shape one may wish to take

I have passed by the palace, and it was an abyt-bird which brought you to me. Hail to you, you who flew up to the sky, the white and shining bird which guards the white crown. I shall be with you and I shall join the Great God; make a way for me that I may pass on.
