Poem: Dispel Darkness

standing goddess NephthysDispel Darkness

by TahekerutAset

It’s My birthday

My day to shine

To be in the limelight

I am the Hidden Goddess

I am the one unseen

Yet I am always present

At every shrine

At every ceremony

At every temple space

For I am the Lady of the Temple

I guard the threshold between the holy and profane

I guard the shrine from impurity and all unholy things

I am the guardian

I am the guide

through shadow and darkness

I shine when darkness reigns

I dispel darkness with My light

The Sun’s power is Mine

since I am the Daughter of Ra

and the Eye of Ra

The Nile’s power is Mine

since I am the Daughter of Nut and Geb

The Storm’s power is Mine

since I am the Sister of Set

since I am the Mourner of Wesir with Aset

since the Nile’s flood is caused by rain

by the Two Sisters, who mourn Him

I am the Goddess

Who shines so bright

I dispel darkness

With My light

Poem: No Darkness Can Withstand My Power

Aset with throne headdress
by Jeff Dahl

No Darkness Can Withstand My Power

by TahekerutAset

I am Aset, the Brightest Goddess in the Sky

I am Sopdet

I am the Solar Eye

I am the Moon when it is full

I am the stars filling the night sky with light

This is who I am

as the Brightest Goddess

I gleam

I glow

I shine

I illuminate all pathways, all roads

I dispel darkness

With light

I dispel fear

With candle flame

So, come to Me

When you are fearful

Come to Me

When you are afraid

And I will quell your fears

And I will give you the strength you need to endure

I am the Possessor of Strength

I am the Lady of Power

I burn away all fear with My flame

All darkness retreats from My light

For I am the Fiercely Bright One

And no darkness can withstand My power

Aset Luminous

Shrine of Aset with statues and lit candles
Shrine of Aset

Festival Names:  Procession of Aset, the Bright One, Mother of God a.k.a. Aset Luminous

Day: 4th Shomu, Day 2.

On my calendar this festival falls on July 2.

This festival commemorates Aset’s nightly search by torchlight for Her husband Wesir.  Candles, lamps and torches were lit for the Goddess.  Papyrus boats were launched in temple lakes.  The boats had prayers written on them with a light source to guide the way.

Ritual for Today

This ritual is what we do for this festival in the House of Netjer.

On Aset’s shrine you could have: an image or statue of the Goddess, a source of light from candles, lamps, LED candles or electric candles and offerings.

You will need paper and a pen or pencil or marker (not red).  You will also need a tealight and a lighter.

Write a letter, asking Aset for things you are thankful for.  Then on the other side, write a letter to Aset asking for things you need.  This paper later gets folded into the boat (start folding: thank you side up).

After the paper boats are made, fill a bowl, bathtub or sink with water.  A tealight is placed in each boat and they are put in the water.  The tealights are lit and the boats float on the water until the candles burn out.  (Please keep fire safety in mind).

About Aset

Aset is a goddess of sovereignty, kingship, magic of all kinds, life-power, personal power and authority, writing, words, gaining knowledge, honoring one’s ancestors, ancestral lineage and traditions, dreams, family relationships, self-love, alignment of the souls and healing.  She is also a goddess of Heaven, starlight, the night sky and the star Sopdet (Sirius).

I channeled this message from Aset about this festival.

Aset Luminous (Aset, the Fiercely Bright One)

by JewelofAset

What are you doing for Her festival?

What will you do today for the Fiercely Bright One?

Light candles or lamps?  Sing a hymn?  Perform ritual before Her shrine?  What will you offer to the Lady?

What will you do today for the Mother of God?  The one who gave birth to Heru in the Marshes?  The sole Mother who took care of Her son?

What will you do for Aset, the Fiercely Bright One?  The One who leads the way in the darkness, dispelling shadows with Her light?  The stellar and solar goddess of the dawn.

What will you do today?  What will you accomplish?  What will you profess?

What will you ask Me in your letter?  What prayers and hopes will the boats carry on the water, with My light guiding the way?

What will you ask Me to dispel in your lives?  What will you ask Me to cultivate?

What will you do for the Fiercely Bright One?  What will you ask of the Brightest of Stars?  What will you ask of the Solar Goddess?

I am the Mistress of Magic.  I am the Goddess Who Knows Her Spells.  What I speak comes to pass.

Do not worry, child.  I will take care of you.

Who am I?  Am I not the Goddess who knows Ra’s Name?  Am I not the wisest and cleverest of Gods?  Am I not the Goddess of all magic, all heka, all life-power, all kau?

So what will you ask Me on My festival day?

The words you speak and write have power.  What I speak comes to pass.  What you write is your heart’s desire.

For what you do, what you say and what you write will become.

Poem: In Every Sunbeam

In Every Sunbeam
by TahekerutAset

Sobek of the Nile is the purification god
Sobek of the Waters of the Nun
Light of the sun dispels darkness
The Light of Sobek and Ra dispels darkness
Ask for this light
Ask for this water to purify you
of grief, of rage, of fear
of helplessness, of powerlessness
Bring to yourselves strength, devotion, kindness
Bring to yourselves health, love and self-care
Be kind to yourselves in this darkness
Be kind to others
Know that We are with you in your grief and rage
Know that We are with you in your sorrow and fear
Know that We are with you
We walk with you through this
Now and forever
So says Aset, Mistress of Light
Lady of Life
I am in every sunbeam
in every starlight
in every candleflame
I am in every droplet of water
in every river, every stream
in every rainstorm
in all water in your homes
So listen now
Use this power
of light, of water
and purify yourselves
cleanse yourselves
in baths
in showers with buckets to pour over yourselves
Or use sacred soap
Or Florida Water
Or other cologne water
Or cense with incense
Burn candles in front of Our shrines
Ask Us to help you
and We will
We are with you
Always

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.
