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.

We Walk With You

My religion has many creation myths and all of them are true.  They tell us about creation.  Atum masturbated and Ptah spoke and everything was created. The Celestial Cow as Mut or Hethert or Mehet Weret or Nit gave birth to the sun god Ra and as She spoke everything was created.  Aset spoke the Word in the Beginning as did Nit and everything was created.

The other Gods, the air in the form of Shu, moisture in the form of Tefnut; Geb and Nut in the forms of earth and sky.  Ma’at and Life in the forms of Ma’at, Tefnut and Shu.    Ra, Shu, and the Eye Goddesses gave birth to light.  Wesir, Heru Wer, Set, Aset and Nebet Het were born and thus more was created by them.

Do you not see?  One became many.  Creation cannot exist without differentiation.  There are many Netjeru for a reason.  For each job to be performed, someone must be equipped to do it.  Some of Us have the same job, yet do it differently.  To borrow a phrase: Diversity is Our Power; Unity is Our Strength.

All of nature is touched by these Gods and Goddesses.  Sunbeams are Ra, Mut, Tefnut, Bast, Sekhmet, Aset and other solar Goddesses.  The air you breathe is Shu or Aset. The earth you stand on is Geb.

Ra and His Family Devotional

Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra and His Family

by Chelsea Luellon Bolton

Ra (Re) is the ancient Egyptian God of the Sun.  He is the creator of the world, Gods and Humankind.  He is both the warmth of the sun and its fiery, scorching rays.  He is the one who travels through the sky during the day and through the Underworld at night, culminating in His defeat of the Evil Serpent.   He merges with Wesir (Osiris), the King of the Underworld and renews the afterlife and creation.

He has many forms and syncretisms with other gods.  He has many daughters who bear the title “Eye of Ra” which means they are His guardians and protectors who harness the fierce power of sun to dispose of enemies and evil forces.

Contributors can explore:

Ra as the creator of the world

Ra as the Creator of Humankind

Ra as the God of Kings

Ra as the Lord of All or Lord of the Limit

Ra and His Forms (Khepri, Ra and Atum as Morning, Noon and Night)

Ra and His Syncretisms (Amun-Ra, Atum-Ra, Khnum-Ra, Wepwawet-Ra, Sobek-Ra, Osiris-Ra, Ra Heru-akhety/Ra  Horakhty)

Relationships with Ra and His Consorts (Hathor, Sekhmet, Bast, Nephthys) and as Amun-Ra (Mut)

Relationships between Ra and His Daughters (Bast, Sekhmet, Mut,  Aset/Isis, Tefnut, Hathor, etc)

Relationships between Ra and the Celestial Cow/Mehet Weret (Forms: Neith, Hathor,  Aset/Isis, Nephthys, Nut)
