How I see the God Set

the god Set

When Set first came into my life, I didn’t know it was him because he was looking straight at me. I first thought that he was Anubis and Set didn’t like that. He huffed and turned sideways. It was then that I realized that who he was. Now whenever I see him, he is looking at me sideways, before looking straight at me. I think he’s pouting over the fact that I didn’t recognize him. It’s cute. Set is growling at me now. Apparently he doesn’t like being called cute. This is the first time that I have heard him. Normally he just looks at me and expects me to know what he wants. But I never do.

I have seen Set a few times and whenever I do, he never acts and lives up to the picture that has been painted by the many texts that I have read. To me, Set is like an over protective big brother, who doesn’t take any shit from his little sister, or any other family member. Since I am the oldest and since I don’t have any brothers, just one little sister, I actually like the idea of having an older brother.

I have noticed one thing though. Set doesn’t like my sister’s cat. He avoids her. Maybe it’s due to the fact that Bast is watching over and protecting me. But he doesn’t like Mattie in the bathroom. Whenever they are in bathroom together, Mattie sticks close to the tub and Set practically hugs the door. (And he’s growling at me again. Sorry Set.) But I do know that he is also watching over an protecting me. Almost like a knight or bodyguard. I just don’t know what he is protecting me from.

My relationship is complicated. I feel like he is working with Bast in protecting but unlike Bast, Set is impatience. But after I saw the two of them arguing over something. Set is little more kind and patient with me. He now gestures when he wants me to do something, instead of just staring at me. However, in order for me to see him, I have to close my eyes. When I do, he’s a black silhouette whose edges glow. When he looks straight at me, the edges of his face glow as well.

I am looking forward to working with Set, but I wish that he would talk to me, in a way that I can hear him.

When I meet with, or get a visit from a God, Goddess, or Kami, I never have a preconceived notion of they should act, talk, or move. I may heard their name before, but I still have to research them. I don’t know what they are in charge of, or anything like that. I hope that this post helps someone.

Part time job and Set

Sorry about the disappearing act. I just recently got a part time job so I’ve been pretty busy with that. About the picture of Set, he’s there because I’ve been seeing him lately. However, he’s been giving me the silent treatment. So all I get from him is him either looking at me or away from me. So once I know/figure out what he wants from me I’ll let you guys know. However this might take awhile since I’ll be classes start on the 28th of this month. So that’s all for now!

Blessed be,

The God

Throughout the years, the God has not been forgotten or changed because he had a role that wasn’t ‘suited’ to him. He is the Lord, the consort to the Lady, he is the sun to her moon. While reading about many Gods (and Goddesses) I noticed that as we learned more, we would force the God to take on roles that were held by a Goddess. One of these roles, I believe, was that of the sun (I forget which culture this is from, sorry.). Also, when Christianity came around to convert the ‘pagan heathens’ they were having a rough time of it. So over their many travels all over the world, they found a Babylonian God (heard this part on a National Geographic Special, and yet again I forget the name. I saw it years ago, sorry.) and didn’t like him. I think he had horns, or cloven feet. So when they came to Ireland and other Celtic countries and saw Cernunnos they got an idea. They put Cernunnos and the Babylonian God together, the result, Satan aka Lucifer. Don’t you just love converting people now? Also, if you want to know where Christianity was at a certain time, just look at the holidays. The holidays are all based off of old Pagan ones. Why? It made converting the “Pagan Heathens’ easier. Now enough of the history lesson, which I’ve gathered from TV shows, friends and family over the years. (Parts of what has been mentioned earlier may not be right, since its all from memory. You have been warned.) If you want to learn more about The God and his various forms please read:

The Witches’ God By: Stewart Farrar and Janet Farrar
An excellent book that talks about Gods from all over the world.

Now the God I started out with was Cernunnos. Just like with the first Goddess, Brighid (Brigid, Brigit, or Brid), I started to feel very warm. However, I never really asked Cernunnos for help, because he confused me. I tried to understand him, but no luck. As I sit here typing this I’m desperately trying to understand him, desperately trying to figure what his job. So when I felt the need to look at the book again, see above picture, I was happy to do so. The God I got next was Thoth or Djeheuty (pronounced Tehuti) (Te hoot ee or Te hoo tie or Te Ho Teh). I was thrilled to say the least. Why? Well unlike Brhighid and Cernunnos, Thoth and Ma’at are a couple (they are each others consort). Also, Thoth is the god of wisdom, inventor of writing, patron of scribes and the divine mediator. I love to write stories, and when I hit a writers I take a break for a while before asking for his help. After doing more research, I learned more about him and grew to like him more and more.

Cernunnos

Sure his head is that of an Ibis and he has the body of a man and he’s an ancient Egyptian God but I DON’T CARE! He works of me, I understand him. Thoth and Ma’at have always been there for me. Whenever I ask for help they answer me as best they can, even though the only offerings I can give them is my eternal thanks and a small bowl of water. I guess what I’m trying to say is this. You know your God and Goddess better than anyone, and so you know what they will and will not accept as offerings. So do your research, get to know your deities and be yourself.

Thoth or Djeheuty (pronounced Tehuti) (Te hoot ee or Te hoo tie or Te Ho Teh)

That’s all for now. Blessed be to all who come. Only love shall enter and only love shall leave.
