So I had a dream that I was talking to someone about being really worried that Set doesn't like me. I have no godphone and such and am really, really, worried that he won't turn up in my RPD once I finish my beginner's classes. Half-jokingly and half-exasperated, dream-me shouted, "GIVE ME A SIGN OR SOMETHING," and immediately, the clouds in the sky took the shape of Balls. I'm 99% sure this is brain vomit, but in the off-chance it isn't, Set is hilarious and that is Actually the Best.
It seems like something he’d do XDDD
Eternal Egypt Review
Just wanted to do a brief review of Eternal Egypt, by Richard J. Reidy! This is a really helpful book, it’s made a huuge impact on my personal practice. The book provides you with the following rituals:
- The Morning Ritual in the Temple of Amun-Ra
- The Nighttime Ritual of the Mystical Union of Ra with Ausir
- Two rituals for honoring the Blessed Dead
- Three examples of rituals to combat
- Morning Bathing Rite
- Divine Identification of the Body Rite
- A General Rite Honoring Sekhmet
- A General Rite Honoring Sutekh
- A General Rite Honoring Djehuty
- The Opening of the Mouth Ritual
You get quite a lot. The organization of the rites/rituals goes as follows:
- Items needed for the Ritual
I cannot overstate how useful and illuminating the introductions and commentaries are. They provide context for the rituals, but more than that they turn the ritual into something with tremendous meaning and potential. I think anyone who is interested in worshiping/working with the Netjeru would benefit from the book, even if your practice isn’t reconstruction based. Eternal Egypt has made such a big difference in my practice, and I cannot recommend it enough.
The only negatives I can think of are that there are roughly 10 typos (misspellings, small typographical errors, etc) and the paperback binding could have been of better quality.
I made this because as a Transgender person i am angry.
The couple look happy, they look like they are in a healthy relationship and are more then capable of being good parents.
YET LOOK AT THESE TRANSPHOBES. JUST LOOK. the world does not revolve around YOUR lifestyle. With this attitude we will never achieve anything. We will never get anywhere.We will never have peace.
I can’t believe these people believe that they are the only beings who are allowed to be happy and have a fucking family. Spread this around. Let the world know about the abuse transgenders and non binaries undergo and how they NEVER get attention.
Aaaand time to play around with something new: human heads! (and, coincidentally, colors!) *…shrug?*
That’s a pretty serious threat
"When the life of a patient was in danger because of a snake bite, a sekhmet priest might threaten to cause the solar barque to run aground on a sandbank, describing the dire consequences that would ensue to the very fabric of the world:The sun barque is at rest and does not proceed,
The sun is still in the same spot as yesterday.
The nourishment is without ship, the temple is barred,
There the disease will turn back the disturbance
To yesterday’s location.
The daemon of darkness is about, the times are not separated.
The shadow’s shapes cannot be observed anymore.
The springs are blocked, the plants wither,
Life is taken from the living
Until Horus recovers for his mother Isis,
And until the patient’s health is restored as well.After Jan Assmann Ägypten - Theologie und Frömmigkeit einer frühen Hochkultur, p.85”
It makes sense that they would go over the top w/ the threat on so many different levels, though.
This is why I laugh when people are like OMG YOU CAN’T THREATEN A GOD OMG HOW DARE YOU?!?!?!??!!?!?
omg. Have you seen how heka works? like srsly.
