An Acknowledgement of African Origin in Kemetic Practice

August 30, 2022

  The author of Kemetic Blog acknowledges and respects the African 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 the…

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…

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…

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…

Evolution of My Kemetic Altar and Shrine – Part 3: Tea with the Netjeru

September 21, 2021

  About six months ago, I had to disturb my Kemetic altar and shrine when I moved to a new residence. I had to leave the location in which the ancient Egyptian deities — the netjeru — first made contact with me. There were personal reasons for this, including the start of a new relationship and the need for a fresh start together. I knew the natural and…

Gearing up for Wep Ronpet: The Ancient Egyptian New Year

July 25, 2021

  Wep Ronpet, the ancient Egyptian New Year, falls on a variable day each year from late July to early August. It occurs when the star Sirius (known as spdt or Sopdet ) first rises in Cairo and once coincided with the annual flooding of the Nile river. This celestial event is called the heliacal rising of Sirius and continues to be observed today as the Kemetic New…

Do any modern Egyptians practice Kemetic Paganism, or ancient Egyptian religion?

April 27, 2021

A thought popped into my mind, while reading part one of Profane Egyptologists (as Paul Harrison muses about whether or not the Egyptological community and modern Egyptians alike would accept non-Egyptian Kemetics as legitimate practitioners of ancient Egyptian religion). Then it struck me again, while watching the Pharaoh’s Golden Parade of royal mummies to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization — Do any modern Egyptians practice Kemetic Paganism or…
