A/pop/his, the Evil One: An Encounter with the Ancient Egyptian Devil

October 31, 2022

  My encounter with A/pop/his, the Evil One, or A/pep occurred thirteen years ago. A convenient time frame for the Halloween season, I know. This is the first time I’ve ever felt ready to share it. Known as the Eater of Souls in ancient Egypt, A/pop/his, the Evil One is said to have fought and lost battles against Ra, the sun god, in an attempt to disrupt and…

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

September 30, 2022

  Heka — or ancient Egyptian magic — goes hand in hand with Kemetic spirituality. In fact, it’s hard to separate one from the other. Perhaps that’s because the ancient Egyptians lived in a world infused with magic.  In this fourth and final instalment of Kemetic Spirituality for Beginners, I’d like to demystify the mystical as much as possible, just as my teachers once did for me. The…

August 30, 2022

  The author of Kemetic Blog acknowledges and respects the African ancestral origin of ancient Egypt, and recognises the practice of Kemetic paganism as a modern reflection of Traditional African Religion. The above acknowledgement of African origin is inspired by Australia’s Acknowledgement of Country which honours Aboriginal Australians as the traditional owners of the land upon which all Australians live, work and learn. We declare this acknowledgement at…

Making a Kemetic New Year’s Resolution

August 22, 2022

  After Wep Ronpet this year, I decided to make my first Kemetic New Year’s resolution. The origin of New Year’s resolutions are not credited to the ancient Egyptians but to the Babylonians and later, the Romans. It may be reasonable to infer that people in ancient Egypt had plenty of down-time to reflect on the previous year, while most of their kingdom was flooded by the annual…

Book Review of Temple of the Cosmos: The Ancient Egyptian Experience of the Sacred by Jeremy Naydler — Part One

August 2, 2022

  Temple of the Cosmos by Jeremy Naydler often comes highly recommended by experienced Kemetics as a great book for newbies to get a grasp on the Ancient Egyptian mindset, worldview and indeed, cosmology. This book, however is not unmet with controversy and at times, even violent displays of opposition. The above statement alone should prompt readers to seek their own copies of Temple of the Cosmos to…

Gearing up for Wep Ronpet, The ancient Egyptian New Year — Part Two: Honouring Hapi and the Spirit of the Inundation

July 22, 2022

  During Wep Ronpet this year, my part of the world is in the grip of another La Niña rain event. Surrounded by the element of water, I’m choosing to honour the circumstances in which I find myself and relating these events to the attributes of Hapi, god of the Nile river and of the inundation (Akhet), which used to occur in ancient times. It’s very much a time…
