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.

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

Sekhmet and Ma’at

Sekhmet and Ma’at

by JewelofAset

Now. Now.
The world is not lost
Liberty is gained
through choice and action;
through love and joy;
through strength and power wielded with wisdom and compassion;
The day is not done
The war is not done
The powerful will rise
and walk this hard road
Hitler and the Nazis were demolsihed
in the 1940s.
So too, will these Neo-Nazis, these white supremecists,
these racists, these bigots,
be oblitered.
So says the Powerful One
and so says Ma’at.
