for my Lord Anpu

Hail Anpu Dweller In The Duat! This blog is dedicated to Anubis also known as Anpu. It will include my personal UPG … unverified personal Gnostics as well as poetry, Insights and stories. I welcome the UPG and comments of others as long as the tone is respectful to The God, myself and others who share their experiences of Lord Anpu. Disrespectful comments will be deleted.

Establishing Contact …Reaching For Deity

APOnortherndigitalsBeltane

Have you read blogs and stories about the Old Gods and the people who serve them?  Are you hungry for contact?  Do you want to know how you go about contacting a Divine Entity?

The answer is simpler than most people think and because it’s simple many won’t even try.  You don’t really need anything except yourself and your desire to reach out to a Deity.  First I will go over a simple meditation designed to help you contact Anpu.

What you absolutely need is some quiet time alone.  Even if you contact Deity in a group setting …which can be awesome by the way …that one on one time is very important.  Your current living situation will determine what form that quiet time will take.

You need to find a setting where you will not be disturbed. Sit or lay down so that you are comfortable.  Start with a few deep breaths …breath in …hold …breath out … Feel your body relax.

Now visualize in your minds eye the God Anpu.  Let Him take the form that ‘feels’ right.  Shut down the judgemental part of your mind for this and allow His form to change as many tines as needed until it feels right.  Continue with slow deep breathing

Now visualize the image of Anpu that has formed in your mind overlapping your body so that He completely covers and enfolds you.  Breath …relax…visualize .. let the feeling of the God that is encasing you grow …relax into this …quiet your mind …breath …feel…listen …continue as long as you wish.  If you fall asleep that’s ok.  You may want to keep a dream journal handy though to record any communications via dreams.

That’s it.  All you need.  Now some will say you should put up a white light of protection, balance your chakras, purify and cleanse yourself.  Do so if you feel the need.  Anpu is an extremely powerful and protective God.  When you invoke Him no evil or harm can remain … His energy automatically banishes negative forces.  This is the bare bones do this daily and you will get results.

With practice you can do this almost anywhere in a few seconds. Sometimes you may be surprised to suddenly find someone other than Anpu encasing you. I have felt My Lords warrior Brother several times!  In that case remember to thank the Deity that comes through.  He or she has come into your vibration to help you.

Now to me devotion means service primarily but offerings are important.  I will leave the question as to whether or not the Gods need our offerings opened.  I do know that we humans need to make offerings.  My own UPG on appropriate offerings is as such.  In Egyptian the devotees first offer their food to the God.  Take a few moments to praise the God and then thank them for the food and eat it with reverence.  My Wiccan background makes it very difficult for me to do this.  The Egyptian Gods infuse the food and drink offerings with their energy when you consume the food you strengthen the link between yourself and your Gods. If you are home and have a shrine by all means offer your food to Him there.  If not visualize the God as in the meditation but this time see him before you.  Mentally hold out the food and drink you have offering it to Him. Wait for his signal a nod, a pat on the head, a verbal command and than thank Him and eat.

A shrine is great to have.  I’m not going to go into details on creating one.  Again depending on your life circumstances your shrine can be home-made items, toy images of dogs, candles from the dollar store.  It can be only in the astral …or as I’ve seen from pics online a magnificent temple featuring a huge 7 ft statue of Anpu!!! Use your imagination.  Create what you can.

More important than any shrine, jewelry, statues, prints and so forth is keeping Him in your heart.  Doing regular meditations and keeping the God always …always …always first.

If you do these things you will get results.  I cannot promise that Anpu will be your Patron.  If he is not your Patron He will guide you to the Deity who is ready and waiting for you.

Wishing you a blessed journey into the waiting arms of your Lord or Lady.

A Broken Famley

I love the image above showing the very emotionally charged scene in which Nebt-Het leaves Her husband Set in order to protect Her son Anpu.

It’s a touching scene something many of us mere mortals can relate to.  Set is imploring her to stay but you can see she is determined to go because that is what she feels she must do to protect her child.

Is it literally true? Is it allegory? A little of both?  Is Set the father of Anpu or is it Osiris? Or even Ra? Do Gods come into existence as described in the sacred lore? Or do they become Gods after countless incarnations in a process of spiritual evolution?  What does it mean when we are told that Set and Nebt-Het are married? What do they really look like?  Set is often depicted as a villain but is this fair or accurate?  Is it fair to say that Osiris is a better God than Set?  How long ago did all this happen?  What does it all mean?

My Wiccan teacher would say ‘Meditate on it’ and I can’t come up with anything better than that!

Deities are complicated.

There are no simple answers to these or the multitude of other questions we may ask about them.

However, that said, I think one good way to proceed is to assume that the lore given to our ancestors about the Gods was given because these are the best ways in which humans can understand the Gods and perhaps to show us humans that the Gods are not strangers to the trials and troubles we suffer.

So back to the story.

Set loves his wife and clearly doesn’t want her to go.  Nebt-Het has her arms wrapped protectively around her son and although she is turned away from Set she appears to looking at him from the corner of her eyes.  Yet her expression is determined.  The young Anpu looks toward his Father (or uncle) while accepting his Mother’s protective embrace.

As a servant of Anpu what lesson is to be learned here?  What has this Artist so brilliantly captured that my Lord compels me to write about it?

Well first Anpu has always been very protective of and sympathetic with abused and traumatized people.  Here he is rejected by his father/uncle due to allegations of infidelity.  Is it true? Does it even matter?  Surely the child God Anpu was innocent regardless.  So here first I would say in this image Anpu would have us know that he understands the pain a child feels when rejected by a parent.

Next there is Nebt-Het leaving her husband to protect her child.  How many of us have experienced domestic abuse? Have you ever been in an abusive relationship?  Were you abused as a child?  Did the non-abusive parent (if there was one sadly there often isn’t) leave?  Did you go to a shelter? Stay with relatives?  Have you left a partner because they were abusive? Are you still stuck in that situation? Are you torn? What will it cost you to take your child or children and leave?  Here Anpu acknowledges how difficult and painful this situation is but His Mother is clearly showing us the way.  You must leave the abuser to protect the child or children as well as yourself.  I know it’s a hell of a lot harder to do than to say. I’ve been in abusive relationships without kids and it was very hard to leave!  Still reach out to whomever you need to reach out to for help.  Terrified need to be discreetly rescued? Go to Wal-Mart, Target, any large store ask to see the manager tell them you are being abused, if your abuser is at the store let them know.  If the abuser is likely to be right next to you the whole time I’d recommend a Wal-Mart because they have lots of witnesses, security, cameras and safe places in back of the store. I know I worked in the back office of one for years.  You can get protection and a hook up with a shelter.  It can be dangerous to make a move like that but every minute that you and your child/children (if any) spend alone with the abuser places y’all in grave danger.  There are a lot of places in the USA where you can go for protection.  Any police dept., fire dept.,hospital or government building should protect you. Please request help ASAP!!

Next there is Set.  Tired I’m sure of always being the ‘bad guy’ – but abusers say that a lot don’t they.  In this case Set is acting like the Native American Coyote God showing the right way by doing the wrong thing!  He let his possessiveness, jealousy and rage destroy His marriage.  Why did He listen to gossip? Why did He reject His Son based on rumors?  Was His ‘pride’ worth more to Him than His wife and His son?  Love demands acceptance and trust.  Here we see that Set pays a high price for His actions.  He loses His family.  Don’t follow this example!!!
