Shrine Seal / Kemetic Ritual Objects

I have finally finished the Shrine Seal that I wrote about in earlier blogs about my Shrine. In meditation, it came to me that I ought to make a Seal for my Shrine. This is pretty much how I saw it in my vision.

I found a new kind of clay to make the Seal main parts from called Jovi. It is an air drying clay that is very easy to shape.


Next came settling in to the Seal the two previously made Guardians of the Shrine - Udjat and Set.







I had also created two Ritual Objects that I created after reading about certain Rites in the Richard Reidy book, "Eternal Egypt"

Set's Testicles




Another view of Set's Testicles - they are painted a beautiful gold that doesn't show up too well here

Natron (The poem)

I fill the bath and climb in
A heaven of salt and hot water
I bathe and I am purified
This is one of the keys that I turn
In order to enter Your House
And to be with You

Accept me into your domain
As though I never left
Let me bask in Your Divine presence
As I reunite myself
And awaken from a slumber of deep forgetting

New Cycle

10 years ago on this day I awoke to a changed world.

Many things about that day stick in my head, but most of all that day was the day I bought a book on how to read hieroglyphs. For whatever reason, that was what I was to do on that day. Buy a book on how to read heiroglyphs and learn to read them.

I learned later that that day was the beginning of a calendar of a new era, in some system, somewhere. And it felt like a new start for me. A dark, foreboding beginning of something. Within months my life was descending into turmoil and I found myself on a plane to Hong Kong to begin a new life.

Today, it is a moving out of that cycle completely – one that I saw lasting 10 years – into a new one. And this cycle is my cycle of Kheper – of becoming.

Importantly, today my pendant was presented to me in final form. And it is more than breathtaking.




Stay tuned for a future journal where I show you the process that my awesome jeweller / sculptor went through to arrive at this exquisite piece. It is sterling silver.
