Reception with Ramses: An Egyptian Neo-Pagan visits ‘Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs’ at the Australian Museum

December 7, 2023

  This week I took a day trip to Sydney to see Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs at the Australian Museum and OMGs, it was great! What happens when an Egyptian neo-pagan, otherwise known as a Kemetic practitioner, visits a museum with an exhibition on ancient Egypt? Let’s just say, multiple levels of reality coalesce to form one, big blissful symphony. I’ll do my best to…

In Your Times of Crisis Call Upon the Goddess, Isis

October 24, 2023

  Three weeks before war broke out between Israel and Hamas, I could sense the goddess, Isis was less present around the shrine dedicated to her in my study and when she was there, she was distracted, tense and disappointed about events in which she attempted to intercede but was unsuccessful. She bore the failure as a troubling personal defeat. I wanted to write a post about it;…

Reader Question: Am I allowed to be into Kemetism?

October 3, 2023

  A reader question I recently received on social media highlights the moral and ethical dilemma some of us face when exploring Kemeticism (also known as, Kemetism) for the first time. Those of us from non-Egyptian and non-African backgrounds often struggle with the appropriateness of our desire to become more involved in Kemetic neo-paganism. As such, I wanted to include this reader question here, as it has become…

A Kemetic Pagan’s Perspective on Queen Cleopatra Netflix Series — Part Two

September 12, 2023

  Welcome back to part two of my discussion on Queen Cleopatra. In part one I addressed the controversy surrounding Cleopatra’s race and our attitudes toward racism. There were some uncomfortable truths put out there for your consideration, which I hope were thought-provoking. I wanted to give readers a pagan perspective, but also a peace-loving perspective and share ideas that I haven’t seen written or spoken about anywhere…

A Kemetic Pagan’s Perspective on Queen Cleopatra Netflix Series

August 18, 2023

  Queen Cleopatra debuted a few months ago on Netflix and I’ll admit, I’ve been avoiding it. Not because of the controversy surrounding Queen Cleopatra VII’s genetic legacy but for more personal reasons. In truth, I’ve been avoiding Cleopatra the entire time I’ve been a Kemetic pagan and it has nothing to do with race. (If you landed here from a search engine or on social media, a…


A Piano in the Desert

August 6, 2023

  I had a strange dream about a piano in the desert last night. It’s been a while since I shared any dreams, so here’s a brief account of what I saw and heard. Someone was playing a piano, out in the open desert, under the scorching sun but I couldn’t see who it was. The music reminded me of the singer-songwriter, Tori Amos. Lost in a great…

Honouring Mother Mountain for Wep Ronpet: The Ancient Egyptian New Year

July 19, 2023

    Blessedly, I’m on afternoon shifts for prac this week, so I decided to move at a slightly slower pace in the mornings and allow myself to engage in some much-needed meditation in spiritual preparation for Wep Ronpet, the ancient Egyptian New Year. It’s a challenge to be here, there, and everywhere but it helps to remember we live in a world where anything is possible —…

Unknown: The Lost Pyramid – Netflix Documentary Review

July 14, 2023

  This review of the Netflix documentary, Unknown: The Lost Pyramid will have to be a relatively brief one, as I am currently on practicum for my nursing degree and rising to the many challenges that it entails. But as I sit here, on a Friday evening (thank the gods it’s Friday), I’m watching Unknown: The Lost Pyramid for a second time and loving it.  Unknown centres around…

The Almost Deal-breaker in Kemetic Neo-paganism

June 30, 2023

  Originally, there wasn’t an almost in this post. There was only a big, fat deal-breaker. Let’s just say, the almost deal-breaker in Kemetic neo-paganism really got under my skin a couple months ago, and I nearly called it quits. But I’m back now and it’s all good — I think. (I have a lot going on: two prac placement this semester, so seven weeks of placement back…
