Kemetic Practice Maat Mysticism Spiritual Growth

The Gazing Eyes of Ma’at

May 17, 2022

  The night I published the post How to Write Your Own 42 Positive Confessions I was visited by the goddess, Ma’at. Curiously, Lady Ma’at did not appear in the usual form of a winged human-like goddess, with an ostrich feather displayed over her head. Rather, she appeared in a new form, detailed below.   I just settled into bed. As per the usual pattern with Subjective Mystical…

How to write your own 42 Positive Confessions for modern Kemetic practice, using the 42 Negative Confessions from the Papyrus of Ani

May 11, 2022

  The 42 Positive Confessions, which may form an optional part of Kemetic practice, are an adaptation of the original 42 Negative Confessions in the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead. One very good example can be found in the Papyrus of Ani. The aim of using adaptations is to make the confessions more relevant in today’s world (for example, most of us today don’t need to worry…

Book Review of Profane Egyptologists: The Modern Revival of Ancient Egyptian Religion by Paul Harrison — Part Two

April 20, 2022

  The continuation of my review on Profane Egyptologists is long overdue. My apologies to any and all who’ve been waiting. I’ll blame it on Uni (I’m an enrolled nurse in Australia, studying to become a registered nurse). As such, I don’t have a lot of time for leisure reading, however, I’m determined to finish reading Profane Egyptologists this year. Profane is different from other Egyptology books because it’s not…

The Capacity of a Kemetic Scribe

April 4, 2022

  Just wanting to provide a personal update about where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to lately, as I’ve not been posting as much as I used to. Essentially, it’s been work and uni, work and uni. Until I finish my degree, I cannot fully function in the capacity of a Kemetic scribe, as I would like to. I realise that now. The whole ‘I can…

Not so long ago, and not so far away: Revisiting Rhonda Byrne and The Secret

January 9, 2022

  Lately, I’ve been brushing up on Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret and quickly progressed to book 2, The Power where I am at the moment. As an intuitive and eclectic Kemetic pagan, I often like to acknowledge other schools of thought outside the rigid realm of Egyptology and the hegemonious powers that be. Powers that attempt to decide for us, what the Egyptological world and the world of Kemeticism can and cannot be.…

Christian and Kemetic Nativity Scenes are One Scene

December 21, 2021

  In a moment of sudden clarity, I whispered “Mary is Isis and Jesus Christ is Osiris and Horus. The nativity scenes are one scene, repeated through time.”   In my last post, I discussed setting up a Kemetic-themed Christmas tree for the second year running and how I was quite content with the results. I also mentioned that when I was touching the ornaments and doing finishing…

A Case for the Kemetic Christmas Tree — Part 2

December 13, 2021

  While not an authentic ancient Egyptian custom obviously, last year I honoured my own vision and set up a Kemetic Christmas tree. The little tree was an experiment, just to see what it would look like, how it would feel, and what the reaction of the netjeru would be. I was really happy with the results. The netjeru, who have an unlimited capacity for graciousness it seems,…

Agnosticism Atheism Community Polytheism

Even if you cannot hear my voice, I’ll be right beside you dear: Conversion to atheism in the Kemetic community and the possibility of psychosis in polytheistic belief

December 4, 2021

  Conversion to atheism in the Kemetic community is an issue I think we should all discuss respectfully, no matter where you stand on the matter. IDK why I’m quoting random song lyrics in my posts of late. Last month, it was Kate Bush. This time, it’s from Snow Patrol’s Run: light up, light up, as if you have a choice; even if you cannot hear my voice,…

Kemetic Spirituality for Beginners: How to Get Started in Egyptian Neo-Paganism – Part 3 of 4

November 30, 2021

Lately, I’ve been writing about so many intermediate to advanced to even experimental topics, that I’ve forgotten to continue with my series on Kemetic spirituality for beginners. So sorry, guys! Please excuse my ramblings. This post is way over-due, so let’s jump right in. Building and blending your bases of knowledge and experience Alright, so you’ve set up a scared space (i.e. your very own Kemetic altar and…

On top of the world, looking over the edge: A dream of the Great Pyramid of Giza

November 16, 2021

  ‘I’m showing my age’ is a phrase that makes the gods and guardians chuckle. Have I used this line before? Probably! But I’m showing my age by quoting the genius of Kate Bush and the lyrics from her song Cloudbusting: On top of the world, looking over the edge. This is how I felt during a beautiful dream I had about Egypt, just last night. The dream…
