Hey kemetics, Bast saved me from some fairly nasty stuff last night, the details of which I won’t go into now, but I’d like to thank Her. Problem is I’ve got no idea what She’d like as an offering beyond the usual bread, drink and devotions. Anyone have any ideas?
Sylvia Browne passed today
And I’m honestly feeling straight up shocked
I wonder if the dead can visit other dead in other afterlives… like, “Ohhey my bff is in Valhalla, but I’m here in the Field of Reeds…. Can I go visit them?” “Sure, just have a god of your pantheon sign a permission slip”
I love this. xD
so how would that work for those who believe in reincarnation?
As far as my lady and I have read, this is exactly how it works :)
If you ask me, btw, reincarnation isn’t instant so you can visit people elsewhere as long as they haven’t reincarnated yet.
nordicnymphwitch asked: What is an apep? Or a/pep as I've seen you write. I Googled it and it seems to be a "demon" of sorts?
a/pep (or commonly called “apoop”) is a demon, in a way, but he’s so much more than that. He is an agent of isfet. Isfet (like ma’at) is a Kemetic concept that is basically everything that Creation is not. As an agent of isfet, a/pep strives to drive all of Creation back into nothingness. He seeks out Creation and tries to unravel its very existence, thereby uncreating the Created.
We put the slash in his name as a means to debilitate him and stop him from having lots of power. In antiquity, they’d often write a line through a/pep’s name, or if he was drawn pictorially, he’d have knives and other weapons shoved into him as a means to maim him.
Egyptians took their a/pep slaying very seriously :P It’s why execrations were such a large part of Egyptian magic- because execrations help Creation to overcome the attempts of a/pep to uncreate.
obv. not askers fault but I cringed so hard seeing ap-p w/o a slash or dash or misspelling D:
