• POWER OF THE FELINE GODDESS

    A VOTIVE WORK TO THE GODDESS SEKHMET AND THE FELINE GODDESSES OF THE FIRST TIME.

    The word Sekhmet in raw translation means “strength” and as all feline goddesses have feminine attributes it is safe to say that this strength is not in any way limited to physical strength, but more so the strength of the intuition, a kind of “gut” strength tied in with the solar center (solar plexus).

    “Lionhearted goddess of the first time” I heard my ancestors call her many years ago.
    But what does it really mean to have this power, this strength of the heart today? And how do we achieve such strength only reserved to a divine mother?
    To step beyond fear, in our actions and wield a power that is fueled by devotional love, not in purely words or thoughts, but a physical manifestation of our current reality.
    It is a kind of strength mothers have when their children are in danger, a primal and raw power that fuels our soul and comes from the “belly of Sekhmet ” soul-deep fire.

    You can witness this extraordinary and bold bravery in the world today demonstrated by many, yet it is difficult to hold, as with such strength comes also the polarity of rage and destruction often misdirected and disembodied in our masculine egocentric world.

    In order for the embodiment of this strength to last, one must go through a journey of metamorphoses. A disfiguration of the body a dismantling of the ego and the mortal self in every layer of consciousness.
    “The lioness rips the soul apart so that at the right time she can put it back together again in alignment with the stars in the heavens.”

    The Initiation into the power of Sekhmet comes through the victory over fear and pain. Not an overcoming but a deep allowing acceptance where fear no longer affects our experience and pain is not limiting.
    When I hear this I imagine a world where the fear-based manipulation we all experience now has no real effect on our existence and reality.
    But we must come to realize that not all of us carry the lion’s power within, and only some of us are tasked with the experience of this transformation to influence the many.

    The Primal power embodied by her is not only divine strength but a force to be reckoned with.
    She is unquestionably the power of the sun as it warms our hearts and transitions us. Preparing us to stand up firmly against the injustice of the world.
    So in the end, only the pure strength of the lion’s heart remains.


    The Lionhearted
    For me, lion heartedness is a combination of pure love and courage. This is in a way infinite and limitless. Caring not, for pretend perfection or existence of time and humanlike ideals. It is just raw and unconditional love by creation. For those of you blessed with the lionheart a major task has been given at the moment of creation, coded into your star chart, your DNA and your numerology. One which will test and prepare you for the Return of the Original Mother, Mother of The Sun God… The Strength of the Heart.

  • GODDESS OF THE FIRST TIME ~ GOLDEN MERIDIAN

    Share this:

    Votive Work Dedicated to Sekhmet Goddess of the First Time

     

    ‘My power of the ultimate source of light shines through the Golden River of the First time.’

    Golden Meridian

    The Mystery of the Golden Path, also known as the Golden Meridian or Neolithic Meridian, is hidden in plain sight only revealed to those who look beyond deception. To understand the teachings of the First time we must recognize that there is, in fact, no separation between etheric and physical reality.

    In Ancient Egypt life depended upon the Nile, a river purposely created to follow the exact path of the *Zepi Tepi Meridian an etheric line stretched through the continent of Afrika, Europe, and the Arctics.

    Here Sekhmet was recognized as the Original Mother of the first inhabitants on earth. She created life on our planet, along this very meridian.  Therefore the energetic gold print of her creation is forever present within these sacred lands. This meridian is not a place of unvisible lay lines or earth grids but a birthplace of life itself where all realities are simultaneously coexisting.
    In this space of multiple realms, star beings have walked before us and the embodiment of divinity is still present in the form of The Star Lions ascended to Earth.

    The wisdom of the Zepi Tepi is shared in the Origin Story of Sekhmet ‘Mistress of the beginning’. It is also the birth story of Lionian consciousness.
    When the Goddess descends from the stars in a golden-like halo, as warm and as bright as the sun, she is the Eye of the sun and the primal force behind the creation of life. Along the Golden meridian, the birthplace of all life, magic was potent and this magic allowed for many extraordinary things to take shape and come to being. Gold was abundant in the area (still is) as well as clean clear water. Oasis-like plants, and magnified energy fields. Many species moving to the area have begun to give birth to white-colored offsprings. Such as the White Lion of Timbavati the region alongside the Golden Meridian. This time of abundance is what many today may call the First Golden Age.

    Mother of the First Time

    Sekhmet as the lioness mother is existing out of our human concept of time.

    “She was, is and will be…”

    Many of the mythological heroes are connected to her source of power, by association. The ‘Lion God” Horus, Jesus as the “Lion of Judah” and King Solomon, are all children of the Sun Goddess. They all have a deeper connection to the Golden Meridian over the people of this day and age. This is either achieved by direct ancestral bloodline or through initiation.
    Lion symbolism traveled far from the Afrikan continent and became a symbol of royalty all over the world. Especially in England, the Lion represents not just a distant relationship to the original kings but a sovereign right to power.
    With this association of power, the Golden Lion represents the purity of the first time. But in this case, they are merely symbols chosen from desperation to reach as far back in time as possible, with no real connection to the purity of Sekhmetian values, strength, and power, the Lion of Judah or the majesty of the Lions roaming the Afrikan plains.

    Children of Light
    In Ancient History, we can see The Sun goddess who rose to power shared creational wisdom with mankind repeatedly.
    We can see a sad story unfolding where the *Age of the Beast is all but forgotten along with the values and respect for Lionian consciousness and with it our recognition of the Lions as guardians and sacred animals.
    Man has become corrupted by the gold, greed and the desire to control life Whilst the lionhearted presence has almost disappeared. Allowing space for fear and survival-based energy to take control of our hearts.

    As the Goddess brought her children to the Light, encouraging them to speak up and share her taught wisdom. They met with obstacles and disrespect by the misguided masses and their fear-based value system.
    Ancient ideals such as the one of Ma’at are vastly unknown or unheard of.  Even now only a select few following the Lion Priest/Priestess path is adhering to these ideals and calling for others to do the same.

    Awakening

    The Lion consciousness is now returning to our daily life, It has been working its way to our heart since the early ’90s and encouraging us to respect the sacred. Break free from fear, and take our tasks as guardians and protectors. Since then many have been called to devote their lives to this path and become influential characters, activists, writers, and priestesses. Today temples are dedicated to the Divine Mother (much like ours), with a divinely guided sacred agenda to restore the golden light and create a new kind of guardianship. A brave and lionhearted consciousness. To restore the rites and practices that allow *sekhem to flourish in our world today. Many of our sisters and brothers are activists philanthropists, way-showers and healers.

  • THE CHARACTER OF SEKHMET

    Share this:

    A VOTIVE WORK DEDICATED TO THE FELINE GODDESS

    The Feline Goddess is as charismatic and wild as it gets.
    This is an important aspect of Ancient Cosmology as Egyptian gods were specifically worshipped and identified based on their humanlike characteristics, behaviors, and personalities.
    Especially the Gods/Goddesses portrayed with animal heads,
    as these animals were closely observed and studied by the Egyptians. They were specifically chosen to represent the deity’s most prominent characteristics, based on the animal’s behavior in the wild.

    Specifically, the Lion and the Cat were observed and worshipped for their ability to camouflage, their courageous but wild nature and their fierce protective attributes toward their offsprings and members of their pride.
    Lionesses are the hunters and providers of the pride and Cats to this day have the highest rate of successful kills when it comes to hunting.
    In Egypt, feline goddesses are the ultimate providers and protectors with caring and nurturing attributes.


    Cats are a symbol of protection and healing in many other ancient traditions. Sometimes also associated with darkness due to their nocturnal nature.
    However, this does not mute their wildness or domesticate or demote their higher nature to roam free and show off their temperament when the time calls for it.
    The Egyptian priesthood worshipped cats as gods but also as a guardian of the underworld. They said to have been able to freely walk between our world and the afterlife.

    The Egyptians recognized the lioness as both the destroyer and healer in one, She is the feared and respected one, the distant goddess that roams free. The divine protectress of her children.
    Here, we can recognize a parallel in the characteristic of our innate feminine nature.
    A truly wild woman is recognized, but also feared and considered untamable. In today’s world, we make the mistake stigmatizing such women as dangerous instead of respectable, due to our detachment from the Sekhmetian presence within. This creates an existential fear where we begin to fear our power, instead of connecting to it.

    To connect back to our inner feline we now must begin the long journey of rewilding our hearts. Just like the feline goddess we too, must walk between the worlds ( symbolically ) and allow our anger and frustration to be felt, recognized and expressed in its rightful setting,
    where it counts, instead of suppressing and internalizing this anger.

    The feline goddess character is unapologetic, powerful, raw, with a huge heart for it’s loved ones and those in need.

    Are these characteristics familiar to you?

  • ORIGIN OF THE FELINE GODDESS

    Share this:

    A VOTIVE WORK TO SEKHMET.

    “HER MAJESTY COME DOWN AS THE POTENT PROSPERING EYE TO JOIN THE WORLD THROUGH HER SPIRIT OF GOD. AT PEACE TO DWELL IN ISHERU IN HER FORM OF SEKHMET…MISTRESS OF THE TOW LANDS.”

    SEKHMET/BASTET/MUT/TEFNUT
    It is difficult if not impossible to Separate the most prominent Feline Goddesses of Egypt or to study them individually without overlaps.
    It is partially because the Egyptians didn’t draw a distinct line between Cat and Lion Goddesses although one was considered the more nurturing and gentle aspect of the other, which is why I will not attempt to separate them, but instead to highlight their archetypal powers and distinctions where ever possible.

     

    ORIGIN

    Feline Goddesses were present in some aspect or other through the whole of the Dynastic Period with the most widely worshipped period being from the 5th to the 19th Dynasty.
    However going back in time Lionesses, in general, have been considered closely related to the gods all over the Afrikan continent in the predynastic period, most prominently in the Nubian region. They are displayed in Great Zimbabwe as protectors of the earth energy lines which we now call “grid lines”. According to tribal wisdom of South Africa, the Lions come from the Stars and were the original inhabitance of the continent for a while, with the ability to take human-like form. The image of Sekhmet therefor likely originates much before the Kingdom of Egyptian Pharaos, indicates her origin to be a story of alchemical metamorphosis.

    There are many local deities in ancient Africa with lion bodies or heads that were later absorbed into the “Sekhem” culture (A cult of Sekhmet which considers her a healer and protectress). There are many lioness goddesses from African culture that we know essentially nothing about, as well as other goddesses with feline aspects, which is displayed in the funerary text in many Pharaonic votive work. ( When a royal is dedicated to a Feline aspect of a Lion/Cat Goddess there will almost curtainly be some evidence left behind for us to admire and study.)

    Feline Goddesses  in evry case stood for inner power, courage, fearlessness, and significant polar aspects such as;

    Raging – Nurturing,

    Destroying -Healing,

    Attacking – Protecting.

    With all the above closely assosiated with feminine archetypal behaviour in Egypt.
    Which is why Feline Goddesses are alway without exception feminine symbols, associated with sexuality, fertility and the solar aspect of creation which is essentially “life-giving light of the sun“.
    They Represent tribal feminine energy, with a ‘take no shit’ attitude for the past 6000 years, with their Solar Crown undamaged and unclaimed by any other to this day.


    SEKHMET AND BASTET
    Are the most enduring of all the Feline Goddesses to date, retaining both their solar aspect and their high celestial title such as the Eye of Ra, Mistress of the two lands. The latter referring to Sekhmet’s aspect as the Distant Goddess and as the ruler of all land of Egypt or beyond.
    She is often the angry ( pissed off ) alter ego of Hathor or Mut.
    But also stands alone as a Goddess of War, Protection and Healing with her magical essence being the sekhem.
    In some ancient texts, Bastet is her muted gentle aspect, where in other places Sekhmet appears as a solar goddess whilst Bastet is an individual lunar goddess, with her very own cult centre and followers.
    This Lunar Presence is most common in the late Greco- Roman era showing how the Greeks much prefer their Lunar Goddesses.

     

    SOLAR GODDESS
    There are many reasons why a Lioness Goddess would be associated with the Sun but the most likely reason is the famous “Cat’ s eye” which reflects the light glowing a lot like the Sun in darkness. Sekhment as the Eye Goddess was a well established symbol of femine power long before the solar gods rose to prominence. Her origin therefor predates her solar aspect by at least 3000 years.
    Another important aspect of Sekhmet later form is her nurturing relationship with her Father the Sun God Ra, where she is both beloved and daughter of the high god, but not only that, she is also his protector and guardian. As if only she can guarantee his safety, which ensures the sun will rise again in the morning and continue to do so, without fail.

    The Egyptians had a real fear of the sun not rising one day, as a premonition of an imminent doomsday, therefor most solar deities have some level of warrior aspects and Sekhmet is the foremost of warriors defending our source of light, perhaps both symbolically and metaphorically.

     

    GODDESS OF WAR

    Sekhmet can also turn into  the Lionheaded Giant of feminine rage, queen of the battle of battles, and  in this aspect, there is absolutely nothing stands in her way.
    Just as the Lion is King of the African plains and is earned respect for its contribution to the cycle of life, Sekhmet tolerates no disrespect either which makes her the most desired patroness of Pharaos especially in times of war with neighbouring countries.
    Sending a clear message that she is foremost of the Nobel Queen, Protector and avenger of the best and worst kind.

    SEKHMET AS THE PATRONESS OF WOMEN

    My very personal interpretation of her origin is the patroness and wild protector of women, guarding our womb power fiercely with her claw.
    Until we are ready to face her with courage and take this power for ourself at which point she will almost certainly become our patroness and guide, perhaps even a small cat resting near our feet.

    The Essence of the Feline Goddess is fearless and courageous love, even in her destructive aspect she is motivated by the protection of something sacred, magnificent and worthy.
    If we use our lion hearts to observe the events unfolding in our world today we can see her handy work all over, but most possibly in our hearts, when we say no to fear-based, manipulation, when we choose to nurture and heal, when we pick our battles wisely with certainty.
