Do any modern Egyptians practice ancient Egyptian religion?

April 27, 2021

  The thought popped into my mind while reading part one of Profane Egyptologists (where Paul Harrison muses about whether or not the Egyptological community and modern Egyptians 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. What a stupendous ceremony! Many Egyptians today appear to…

When you have faith, we have faith: Meeting and working with Queen Tiye, the Elder Lady

April 4, 2021

  Usually I’m not one to complain but gosh, I’ve been through so much personal crap this year! The horrific ending of one relationship and the amazing start of another. Too many shifts at work then not enough. There was the death of a cousin I recently reconnected with. Now I’m planning a move, after living at my current residence for many years. Then of course, there’s uni,…

Brace for Impact: What to Do When Subjective Mystical Experiences and Encounters Consist of Warnings from the Divine

March 18, 2021

  My three-year relationship with my former fiancé recently crashed and burned before my eyes. I never saw it coming. Well, that’s not entirely true. I was warned by a team of ancient Egyptian deities and Spiritual Guardians before it happened, which allowed me to brace for impact, as it were. I can’t recall exactly what I was doing when the warning came. Chillin’ like a villain? I…

Safe Pagans: A response to peer violence in the Kemetic neo-pagan online community

February 14, 2021

  Peer violence is a confronting topic to address and in all honesty, I wish I didn’t have to. But someone has to. The intention of this post is to promote spiritual safety for all pagans, particularly newcomers. Believe it or not, peer violence in the Kemetic neo-pagan online community exists and if we do nothing, our community will erode and we’ll be robbed of bright individuals, whose light belongs in…

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

January 31, 2021

  I was introduced to Profane Egyptologists by fellow YouTuber SekhmetRa and was quite excited to learn a book had been written specifically about Kemeticism and Kemetic neo-pagans. If this book sounds like a shoo-in for your personal library, you are correct! Profane Egyptologists is based on an ethnographic study of self-identified practitioners of ancient Egyptian religion, known as the Kemetic community. This includes Afrocentrists, orthodox reconstructionists, reformed Kemetics, Wiccans…

A Case for the Kemetic Christmas Tree

December 26, 2020

  Is it possible to have a Kemetic Christmas tree? That is, one with any merit in Kemetic neo-pagan culture. Would the concept of the Kemetic Christmas tree have any valid connections to ancient Egypt, its customs and religion? Or would it be a mere construct based on the wishful thinking and creativity of the practitioner? On the other hand, if we cannot avoid the blending and merging of cultures,…

Do Kemetic neo-pagans celebrate Christmas? Taking steps toward incorporating Kemetic traditions into mainstream holidays

December 13, 2020

  Whether or not Kemetic neo-pagans celebrate Christmas may seem like a complicated topic but it really doesn’t need to be. Most practitioners — myself included — are notoriously practical people who incorporate ancient Egyptian religion and spirituality into everyday modern life. From this perspective, I’d like to think we have the best of both worlds. That is, the blessings and favour of the ancient Egyptian deities /…

Animism in Kemetic neo-pagan practice: Meeting and working with an acacia tree goddess

November 22, 2020

    Animism is the term we use to describe the belief that all things, plant, animal and objects both natural and man made are inherently possessing of a spiritual life-force. Many ancient peoples believed in animism, including pre-pharaonic Egyptians. Animism maintains that a spiritual life force endows all things with at least some form of soul essence and some sources even suggest, consciousness.  Where do Kemetic neo-pagans…
