Simple Ways to Honor Gods and Goddesses

Some may find it hard to go into shrine right now.  Or maybe you just want something simple to do outside of shrine.  If you are looking for inspiration to honor Them outside of shrine, I have a few ideas:

1) Find them in the nature around you.  Shu, Nebet Het and Aset are associated with breath.  The Eyes of Ra manifests in the sunbeams or starlight.  Nut is the night sky.  Go outside and spend time with Them.  Breathe and think of Their Names.

2) Say a prayer before you eat, offer your meal and  then eat it.

3) Can you wear jewelry?  Wear something you’ve dedicated to them, like  a necklace, ring or bracelet.

4) You could wear clothes with colors that remind you of Them.  (Blue or purple for Aset, black or purple for Nebet Het, white for any of the Netjeru).

5) Is there a Netjeru over  your profession?  Offer your workshift to Them.

6) Do creative projects.  Call on Seshat or Djehuty for writing, call on Aset or Hethert for arts and crafts.

7) Do something you love and invite Them.

8) Offer to Taweret, Aset, Hethert, Mut or Bast and clean your home.  Offer to Bes or Bast or whomever to protect your home.

9) Breathe.  They are There.  Gods and Goddesses of air and wind are with you when you breathe.  So breathe.

I Will Aid You

I Will Aid You

by Chelsea Luellon Bolton

Do you remember the promise I made you?

You will never be harmed for loving Me.

This is still here.

This is still now.

I am the Goddess who made the Gods

I am Sopdet, the Star

Shining Bright in the Darkness

I am the Light that guides the way to yourself.

The parts you have lost I can regain.

But you must call out to Me.

For I am the Mother of Heru

and as I healed My son, I made this declaration:

Those who come to Me for My aid

I will help you as I have My son

I will help you like I helped My son.

Everyone is Heru.

Male,  Female,  Third Gender.  Transgender.

All People.

For a King represents all in His Kingdom

And Heru is the King of the People

Heru represents them all.

I am the Goddess of the Throne.

I am the Goddess of Life.

I aid the disenfranchised.

I aid all who call out My Name.

So call on Me

and I will come.

Give Me an offering

no matter how small,

and I will aid you.

 

 

 

Blessings

Update

Hello, all!

I have been swamped this past two weeks with a few doctors visits and a few tests. I don’t have the results from one of the tests back yet, but the resulting anxiety has made it impossible for me to do too much besides read manga, write fiction and curl up with my cat. My family and friends are awesome and have been extremely supportive throughout all of this.

Dealing with anxiety and stress is something I am working on, albeit more slowly than I’d like.

So I know I have been really quiet lately and this is why.

Goes back to curl up on the couch with a book and my cat.

Musings on Cycles and Creation

Offerings are given so that the Gods’ Kau (vital essence) are fed and ours are fed when we partake of the physical offering after ritual. Eating, breathing, laughing, doing what we enjoy, sex, and creativity, beauty feed our Kau.

Replenishing creation with ritual and food is a sacred act. It is reciprocal creation with the Gods and people. It is an exchange of energy and the axiom “we give so You may give” applies here.

The world is made of cycles. Duality and complimentary opposites working together are one of the main themes in Egyptian myth. And so are cycles.

And cycles are important because anything that stagnates, dies. The solar cycle, the lunar cycle, the Nile cycle, the stellar cycle, the daily cycle and nightly cycle all renew creation and the Gods and humans and the dead.

All renewal brings back the emerging power of the First Time–all magic, all possibility, all power and all potential are in this moment. And this is what ritual does for us and what cleansing the ka does for us.

It brings us back to this moment where anything is possible. Our True Selves emerge here True-of-Voice. Our Star-Souls are held here and we behold creation with the Gods.

The sun emerges from the waters. Light penetrates the darkness. Daybreak fills creation with life.
