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…

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…

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…
