Welcome to Kemetic Blog. That name must sound so original, I know, but there’s a method to my mediocrity, which is to make information on Kemeticism or ancient Egyptian religion and spirituality more accessible. This was an issue, when I first began my own Kemetic journey, when I was met with a number of exclusive online groups via Google and Youtube that were only open to parts of the Kemetic community — not to the whole — and mystery schools you had to join to receive information (there were exceptions, of course, and you’ll find these sources in my links page). It’s also true we live in an algorithm-based world today. If you want to get your message out there, you have to dance to a certain, indexable rhythm. My hope is to satisfy both the search engines and the public, by presening an insightful, engaging blog in the spirit of Ma’at or balance and harmony.
Kemetic Blog is dedicated to the revival of ancient Egyptian religion and spirituality. It will explore such topics as Kemetic reconstruction and reformation, independent Kemetic and pagan life paths, as well as other perspectives. The goal is to share a journey of modern life as a Kemetic neo-pagan and to support others on the journey. I enjoy contributing to a sense of online community for Kemetics, who are often solitary in practice.
At Kemetic Blog, I plan to include commentary on what I learn, along with sources I’ve learned from. I also share first-hand experiences, or what I call Subjective Mystical Experiences and Encounters (SMEEs). This is one difference that will perhaps set me apart from other sources of information or content on Kemeticism: much of my spiritual life is enhanced by a direct experience of the divine. I encourage others to cultivate their own such experiences, and to enrich these subjective experiences with objective knowledge of Egyptology. Learning from sources close to the original, historical record will give us a functional knowledge-base of Kemeticism. Realise also that, “We are each the key (or ankh) to a living deity,” as relayed to me by Isis / Aset. The meaning here, is simply that divinity lies within and once experienced, is quite profound.
Enjoy your visit!
