Communing with the Full Moon and a Very Special Baboon

January 8, 2023

  Last night, I communed with the full moon and a very special baboon, (that would be Thoth, or Djehuty of course, in none other than his baboon form). The full moon rose between branches of Australian native paperbarks outside my window, and I was so incredibly grateful that I was able to be there to witness it and be part of it. I had worked on Christmas…

Have yourself a Kemetic Christmas: Making mainstream holidays work for you as a Kemetic practitioner

December 14, 2022

  This is my third Christmas as a Kemetic. While not a vastly long time, it’s been long enough for me to learn a thing or two about how I want to celebrate the holiday season. Rather than abandoning the mainstream, I’ve opted to create my own Kemetic Christmas holiday. Each year, I experiment with different ways of adapting themes and concepts from ancient Egyptian religion and introducing…

The Claw of Sekhmet

November 24, 2022

  The Claw of Sekhmet is a personal ritual tool I’d like to share with readers this Thanksgiving, as an example of how to use your own intuitive abilities and investigative skills when searching for ritual tools, and other sacred objects to include in your practice.  When you feel the need to start searching for the right tools to have in your magical arsenal, know these tools are…

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…

An Acknowledgement of African Origin in Kemetic Practice

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…

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…

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…
