Blue Lotus Speaks: Sirius Culmination 2015 Reflections on 30 Years of Living with Trauma and Assault

GREAT RISING AND SIRIUS AWAKENINGS!
January 18, 2015

The journey home from yet another fabulous Shetaut Neter Temple of Aset Temple of Heru WINTER SOLSTICE CONFERENCE, RETREAT AND FESTIVAL, was almost as powerful as the retreat itself. In fact, the experience is ongoing…….

Shetaut Neter Winter Retreat 2014

Wanted to take a moment to share some of the profound healing and reflections that have recently illuminated my life. These are thoughts and realizations that are allowing me to move forward faster than ever.

1. I was deeply moved by the hekau Nuk Pu Nuk Asar Asar: I am That I am Asar, Asar. The Teachings tell us to see ourselves as Asar, and to identify with his experiences and transformation. I began to see, and to feel, how each one of us is in fact Asar, that each one of us has been “cut up into pieces” by our relatives, society, oppression, etc. And that it is the loving wisdom and compassion of the Divine Mother that heals and puts us back together makes us whole,. In this instant, I was able to feel forgiveness and compassion for myself, and for all those that were involved in my encounters with violation of any kind.

Violence and unrighteousness occur where there is ignorance of the Divine. Cannot blame someone for being ignorant because society is designed to perpetuate ignorance. However, it behooves us to speak out against ignorance, unrighteousness, violence, assault, abuse, etc, and to stand up and seek Justice. This is Living For Maat.

2. Next I realized that when I feel doubt, fear, guilt, shame, etc. that is my Ego, that is Set. That anytime I believe that it is my own actions, thoughts, desires etc that alone cause a situation or person’s negativity into my space, that is my ego. Sometimes, I am being used by the Divine as a mirror. Sometimes, I am just in a place to serve as a witness. But no longer do I have to accept that I am “attracting things” just because I am shining light on certain issues. For instance, when people say the reason for the assault in August is because I started speaking out against rape in June, in honor of Tchiya Amet Day. Or because I finally spoke publicly about being raped by Neil deGrasse Tyson when I was a grad student at UT Austin in the 80’s.This is ludicrous!!! What I learned is that darkness is attracted to light, but that is no reason for light to stop shining. That is all the more reason to shine even more brightly! For awhile, I was trying to hide my light, to hide my truth. To hide from my Truth. But no more, thanks to a creep and a man that did nothing in August 2014, the end of my Chiron Return, I am determined to shine even more brightly than ever, to continue to speak up and sing out. Committed to End the Silence, End the Violence.

3. The third and probably most crucial realization follows:

Every single instance of trauma that I experienced happened at a time, place, or situation or relationship where I had received a “red flag” or intuitional hit that I should not be there, or not a good thing for me, but I ignored the message. Either I loved the person, place, thing, institution, message, ideal or potential, and was determined that I could endure no matter what.

 

Red Flag!

 

 

So, my intuition says, “Warning! Danger! Exit Stage Left Immediately!!” and I say things like,”Oh, it will be over soon. I don’t want to inconvenience them”, or “Well, they came all this way. It will be alright just this once”, “He will change and I can help”. “It’s not exactly what I am looking for, but she seems nice “, etc. The Universe does the only thing it can do, and I unconsciously help, because I KNOW it is not right for me: CREATE TRAUMA SO THAT IT WILL END, I HAVE TO END IT, OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT.  Yes, each and every trauma that I have encountered is because of something like this.  Ignoring My Divine Intelligence, My Inner Guidance, My Intuition. I forget My Self and listen to Set, the toxic ego.

Set

 

Heru and Set

Now, for the years that I was ignorant of the Divine, of my Higher Self, of my intuition, I must forgive myself 1000%. For the times that Set was in control. and I foolishly believed that I knew better than the Most High, I must also forgive myself. As well as the individuals that were involved.

 

Set Guiding the Barque of Ra

 

It is NOT about eliminating the Ego, or controlling Set, etc. It IS about PURIFYING the Ego, purification of Set, SUBLIMATING the Ego, so that the Ego serves you, rather than you serving the Ego,

 

The Correct Maatian Action for me to take is to continue to speak out and to help others to do the same, thereby seeking, and seeing, Justice in my own life, allowing me to see Justice in the World. This is my true desire: To see and experience Maat restored Upon the Earth in this lifetime.

 

 

OM MAAT GEB.

Which brings me to the Empty Cabinet at the top of this page.

Speaking of Order:

Monoah

Lluvia

When my daughters were young, we kept the Sabbath, we did major Spring Cleaning every year to be ready in time for Passover, the Full Moon after the Spring Equinox. When they moved away, I was unable to keep it up alone, especially the thorough spring cleaning in one month. So I stopped. After keeping this tradition for over 20 years, and then stopping for 10 years, I have decided to start again. There has been so much negative vibes that came in and out of my life in the years that I was NOT doing this! It is incredible to look back and reflect on what transpired during the ten years my family has been “cut into pieces”: 2005 is the year my oldest daughter, Monoah moved out, then Lluvia and I moved to Berkeley shortly after that. The rest will have to wait for the full length movie.

 

Sirius Cleaning

The most important thing is that I have decided to start again. And as you know, with HeruScopes, all the signs are off by about one month anyway, and it sure feels like the seasons are shifting, or that the magnetic poles have flipped. Therefore, instead of trying to get the entire house clean in one month, I begin with Sirius Culmination, January 1, and will see how far I can get, by myself, by the Full Moon after Spring Equinox. I began with this cabinet, taking out all of the dishes, washing the cabinet, washing all the dishes, then putting back the ones I am keeping. This will soon spread to every cabinet, every closet, every drawer, every wall, window and ceiling, every garden, until the entire house and the yards are cleansed and protected for another year.  I use lavender water, rose water, sage, sea salt, incense, sound like drums and sistrum. Again, it is about restoring order, setting boundaries, and maintaining them, paying attention to red flags, and leaving Set out of it, unless ready to serve the Divine.

The Story of how my spiritual practice, journey and culture have evolved from Rasta, to Hebrew Israelite, to Black Native, and presently to Kemetic (Cosmic) Sound Healer, Yogini and Priestess is yet another chapter, and we will get to that shortly….in the meantime,

If you listen to my music, you can experience this journey for yourself…

or read “When Rocks Cry Out” by Horace Butler and you will get the idea….you might even understand!

After decades of NOT observing New Year’s Eve, I have come around to the Truth of this evening, and fully embrace Sirius Culmination, a grand time to reflect on past, present and future. A Moment in Time to Fully Align with the Cosmic Order of the Universe. A time to plan ahead for the strategy and implementation of Maat Restored On Earth: BALANCE, TRUTH ORDER, HARMONY, JUSTICE, RECIPROCITY AND RIGHTEOUSNESS .

Sirius Culmination Viewing Guide

Good Sirius Culmination and Great Awakening!

In other words, Hapi New Year!

While most of the world is partying, drinking champagne and celebrating  with other worldly ways, in Ancient Kemet and in Contemporary Neterian Communities, December 31 is a most auspicious moment in the cycle of the Sirius Star System. Sirius is divinely related to the Goddess Aset (Isis). The Neteru, the Gods and Goddesses, represent the cosmic forces that live within all of us. By learning  more about the Neteru, one also gains knowledge about the Higher Self, thus drawing one closer to the Divine.

Most of the information that follows can be found in

“African Religion, Volume 5: THE GODDESS PATH”, by Dr. Muata Ashby. Part 4, pg. 81 in the ebook:
Usher Rekhat: The Mother Worship Ritual and pg. 95:
ANNUAL GODDESS WORSHIP FOR DECEMBER 31st

You can obtain copies of this book here:

ebook from egyptianyoga.com
“The rising of Sirius, the star of Aset (Isis) and the new birth of Heru (Horus). The end of the year is a time of reckoning, reflection and engendering a new or renewed positive movement toward attaining spiritual Enlightenment. The Mother Worship devotional meditation ritual, performed on five days during the month of December and on New Year’s Eve, is based on the Ushet Rekhit. During the ceremony, the cosmic forces, symbolized by Sirius – and the constellation of Orion (Asar)—, are harnessed through the understanding and devotional attitude of the participant. This propitiation draws the light of wisdom and health to all those who share in the ritual, leading to prosperity and wisdom.”

pg. 96
“New Year’s Eve is an especially important time in reference to the mysticism of Sopdu (Sirius). A little known fact about Sopdu is that on New year’s Eve, Sopdu rises to the apex of the meridian above the earth and can be seen directly above from anywhere in the world, beginning at the midnight hour. Thus, Sopdu marks the beginning (birth) of a New Year as well as the continuing cycle of life which reminds us of the glory and precision of the universe. Thus, in this aspect Sopdu is a supreme example of Aset as the mother who gives birth to Heru and also in her aspect as Maat, the universal order of Creation. Therefore, this time offers a great opportunity to reflect upon the attributes and teachings of Aset, Heru and Maat. The Ancient Egyptian Pyramid texts explain that the rising of Sopdu and the birth of the New Year is synonymous with the resurrection of the initiate who is Asar and whose spiritual seed rises in the form of Heru, the vindicator, the renewed spirit (enlightenment).”

Aset5sm

pg. 97
“The passage in the Pyramid text is relating the birth of Heru, the spirit of Asar through Aset. It is very important to understand that The Asar being referred to is in reality the initiate, you. Therefore as you read about Asar, keep in mind that it is you who are being renewed, you who are being reborn.”

What follows is a guide for those seeking to connect with the Divine, and welcome in the New Year in a very ancient way.  Hapi New year! HOTEP.

Dua Sebai Maa and Dua Seba Dja for bringing these teachings back to life.

STEP 1: Preparing for the Ritual

If possible, fast from sundown on December 30, and continue the fast until the end of the observance on December 31st. Practice celibacy, non-violence and truthfulness during this time.

STEP 2: STUDY

Have everything ready in advance in order to begin the ritual at 11pm wherever you are or which ever time zone you are located. This includes preparation of the altar, taking a bath, wearing white clothing that is all natural like cotton, silk, etc.and your own well in advance so that you may begin at 11pm.

STEP 4: Items to have on hand

Ankh, Water, Bread or Sweet Cake, Noise making device, preferably a Sistrum, Candle, Incense and Icon, for instance, image of Aset on Papyrus, or a statue.

STEP 5: Locating Sirius

COMMENCEMENT

1. Begin by sounding the noise making device at 11pm wherever you may be.

2. recite the following Hekau (chants or sacred words of power) As you do so, remember that you are invoking these cosmic forces with YOU.

Recite each hekau 4 times, symbolizing 4 aspects of being, 4 direction, 4 elements, etc.

“The prayer is directed towards the purification of the mind and body which will allow your spiritual practice (movement) to be unobstructed on earth as well as in heaven. It is a propitiation to the Divine that you should not be confined to the temporal world of time and space, and physical body and ego-self consciousness, so that you may go beyond the ignorance of ordinary human existence and thereby, discover the truth of your true nature as one with the Supreme Self”

Aset says: “I am all that has been, all that is, and all that shall be, and no mortal man hath ever unveiled me.”

You will see the brightest star in the area and that will be Sopdu, in the area and that will be Sopdu, just to the right you will see three stars. These are known as the belt of Sahu.

Here is another resource on Sirius Culmination from Earth Sky Magazine:

Sirius midnight culmination New Year’s Eve

“Tonight – New Year’s Eve – look up for the brightest star in the sky, Sirius, in the constellation Canis Major.

This star is up in the evening every winter, and it’s always easy to identify. Although a few planets might be brighter, Sirius outshines every other star in the night sky.

If you go outside late this evening and look toward the south, you’ll easily notice Sirius shining there. This star is so bright that you notice it twinkling fiercely. You might even see it flashing different colors – just hints of colors from red to blue – like the celestial counterpart to an earthly diamond.”

Blood Red Full Moon: April 15, 2014

Featured

Sidereally, we are just about to enter into the month of Aries! on April 18. Perhaps this is another reason why this is known as the Blood Red Full Moon…Red with the Fiery Energy of Mars!

Someone asked me about a ritual to do for this event, which is also a full lunar eclipse that can be seen in North America.!

Blood Red Moon

‘Blood Moon’ will be a sight to behold during total lunar eclipse

“In other words, get ready for an unusually beautiful moon to grace the night skies next week. There will be a total lunar eclipse Tuesday that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange, NASA says.

It’s called a blood moon, and this one is just the first in a series of four consecutive total eclipses.

Within a year and a half, North America will be able to see a blood moon a total of four times. The moon takes on this color during the eclipse as it passes through the Earth’s shadow, which is the color of a desert sunset.

The four blood moons will occur in roughly six-month intervals on the following dates: April 15, 2014; October 8, 2014; April 4, 2015, and September 28, 2015.

……So, we’re in luck. To take advantage of it, you’ll have to stay up late from Monday night into Tuesday.” CNN

Blood Moon, Moab, Utah 2011 (Julie Jacobson AP)
