In a dream.  Mother but not her.  The body is different but the essence the same.  The body shifts, melds, there she is.  She smiles sadly.  She wants to talk to me, tell me many things.  She can’t say much, something pulls her away.  It’s always the same.  She tells me she misses having her senses.  To see, to touch, to taste, to hear, to feel.

In that place between dreaming and waking I wonder, how can you see me without seeing?

Sacred Purpose Reading

with 4 comments

I have been getting an urge lately as if there was something I had to do, and I had a feeling it had something to do with doing reiki.  I decided to clarify this by having a chat with my ancestors using the Anubis Oracle deck.  I used a spread offered in the book that came with the deck called “Sacred Purpose.”  Remember in my last post how I kept wondering what the heck sacred purpose meant?  Well with this spread, my ancestors clue me in as to what that might be, as well as what aspect of that purpose I’m manifesting in my life right now, where I need to be on my path, and what I need to do to manifest my goals. Read on to find out the results.


The spread, along with an offering of water, incense and chocolate to my akhu.

Introducing: My Anubis Oracle Deck

with 15 comments

I found out about this oracle deck while looking around the KIN forums.  I’ve always been interested in tarot card reading and had worked with a few, namely the Rider-Waite deck (just didn’t speak to me) and the Osho Zen oracle deck (not that into Zen, so it didn’t exactly mesh well with me either), but was looking for something that had more to do with my religious lens of choice.  I had used the oracle online with pretty accurate results, so I decided to buy the deck to have a physical copy for myself.  Now, I’m not really into shamanism (read: not at all) so there is a lot of “extra stuff” in these cards, some of it borderline fluffy.  There is a lot of emphasis on transformation and personal growth, so from the readings online I take the descriptions and find key words in them that end up answering the question I had in mind, so it works.

I recently came across a blog post on Adventures on the Dusken Path that goes into how each tarot deck has its own spirit, and even how to confirm what the deck is best used for, along with some other helpful information.  I decided to give the layout she posted a try, and am recording the results in hopes that I can later either confirm or deny them.

The layout is five cards, the left three describing the personality of the deck, the fourth middle card what the deck is good at, and the fifth card on the left what the deck is not good at.  Backstory: I originally wanted to use these cards as a way to communicate with my ancestors, and I communicated that with them.  However I may have only used it once or twice, and then left them to the side for a while before coming back to them recently.  I wasn’t sure, then, whether my ancestors would still be using this to communicate or whether it turns out that the spirit of the deck itself is the one doing the talking, so you’ll see how this plays out in the spread.


The results of the spread.

Drumroll, please…

I’m a daughter of Bast, beloved of Seshat-Nit-Nebthet.

*clap track*

Is there anybody surprised?  No?  Didn’t think so. Smile with tongue out

I promise to make a more head-type post like I’m accustomed to (and we knew that that was coming too) but for now I’d just like to rejoice.

I also had some messages from my Akhu and there were generally good tidings.  I am happy to have some communication from them and look forward to developing my relationship with them more.  I’m also going to have to look into those other aspects of Seshat as I have no experience and little knowledge of these other netjeru.

NEKHTET!  Thank you to Rev. Siuda!
