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.

Future Projects

I have tons of projects I’m working on right now.  I’d like to narrow my focus so I can get a few of them done.

  • Solar Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Sekhmet.
  • Creation Mother: Ancient Hymns for Mut.  (As someone else is helping me with this via translation, this will take longer).
  • River, Star and Sky: Poems for the Egyptian Gods.
  • Lord of the Ways: An Anthology for Wepwawet. (Due date for submissions is January 7, 2020)
  • Lady of Magic: Honoring Aset Today.
  • Hymns of the Two Lands: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Gods.
  • Mother of Nine: An Anthology for Oya.

 

On a separate note, I need help for figuring out the title of  Mut’s book:

  • Lady of the Double Crown
  • Creation Mother
  • Mother, Queen and Matriarch
  • Queen Mother

Aset Luminous: Procession of Aset, Mother of God

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

Day: 4th Shomu, Day 2

This festival commemorates Aset’s nightly search by torchlight for Her husband Wesir.  In modern times, paper boats are made (with written petitions on them) and they are placed in water with a tealight on top.

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).

For offering ideas, go here: Offerings of Aset.

I channeled this message from Aset about this festival.

(This is included in my book, Queen of the Road)

Aset Luminous (Aset, the Fiercely Bright One)

by Chelsea Bolton

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.
