Wow some neat things to think about and look at. Thank you so much everyone ^w^ so far your comments are pretty neat. Though it seems the priests worked on the dead a lot it seems.

Any sort of shapeshifting is fine. I always like to know what they thought about it and if they practice it or believe in full transformation (which I'm still on the fence about at this point in time).

Both of your arguements and very good and thank you for the information you both provided to me ^w^

Wonder what others have to say about this.

Being the animalistic shaman that I am, I dive into shapeshifting and learning all I can about the mysteries of animals. Even outside of Egyptian worship I connect with goddesses that are or run with animals (Epona - horse, Artemis - for bears, deer, wolves and hounds).

Shapeshifting has come a bit easy for me in meditation though it reflects in my day to day life now. If I don't watch it I make noises or move in an odd way to people. Even other animals around me know I'm changing, some are okay with it, but others, like a horse I've ridden a lot, are nervous.

What brought me to serach for Sekhmet was the form I assume, the lioness. It came easiest, and I tried others like one of my allies is a snake, but I could not grasp the idea of snake movements. My snake I should try another form that reflected myself. It was a lioness. It was when a large lioness appered to me in my meditation and became another teacher for the lioness inside me.

What I would like to know is were their history or myths of shapeshifting? I thought maybe because of the abundance of animal-like or headed gods and goddesses if humans wanted to awake the animal inside them. Were there priests and priestesses that would perform shapeshifting, or animal dances?

If anyone has any information to share I would like to widen my knowlegde of it to gain better control over myself.

Thanks for the link, will read through it all to get a better understanding. Don't need to show my boyfriend...then he will really get worried and won't let me try any energy work at all.

I tend to just like talking and being around the gods or learning from my spiritual guides (I have 3, a snake, horse and a lioness). They always have something to teach me.

Heru is the Kemetic name for Horus, who once beheaded his own mother after a contest involving hippopotami. -cringe- She got better. So, yeah, careful with that shifting.

Oh yes, and I promised my friends that I would pass along this message to anyone wanting to learn about spirit work and energy work. "You're so screwed!" Honestly, it can mess you up especially if you're always reaching for more energy. If you haven't heard about shaman sickness yet, you should put that on your reading list. The heathens have a nice summary of it somewhere.


I've never heard of shaman sickness, but I will keep that in mind. I've done energy work for about 3 or 4 years with my boyfriend and we try not to over do it or push ourselves to the limit. I've done that once before and it hurt a lot. I blacked out on the road at 2 in the morning helping a friend of mine. Very crazy thing, lets just said she went a little nuts and started to run around outside all crazy >.>....not a midsummer's night I like to look back upon.

Shifting comes easy to me because I connect with animals better then humans. Thats why I tend to connect with animal like gods or goddesses. I have a wild nature inside me that people rarely see.

Who is Heru?

Yeah sometimes though I need to raise up more energy to connect to the gods because sometimes they want me to learn something. Trust me, I needed the energy chasing after a white mare haha.

Very very true about the mind set of shapeshifting. I tend to become more bold when I'm a lioness and walk I guess 'taller' then what I normally like.

Dancing is fun. If you ever get to try it, its very powerful! I do meditation as well. Never tried drugs though >.> not sure if it would be that fun, I don't know.

Wow I would be honored to tell you what I've been working on in my shamanic path. I find it easier for me since I'm more simple and basic when it comes to rites and rituals. Personally rituals involving the gods are by far my favorite, I enjoy eating the offerings with them and connecting to their energy.

I will have to send you a pm sometime soon ^w^

Hello everyone,

You may call me Ratha. I'm a shamanic pagan that has awaken the lioness inside myself and found in the loving arms of Sekhmet, the Great Mother Lioness. I'm new to working with egyption gods, but I try my best to honor Sekhmet in any way possiable.

I have come to learn more about the Kemetic faith to better myself and to give honor to Sekhmet in her natural faith.

A bit about myself. I have Norse and Celtic bloodlines. I've worked with Epona, the Horse Goddess of Gaul (France) and call nature my mother. The Sun is a great force in my life, and probabaly because I'm born of the sigh of the lion (Leo). As a shamanic pagan I work with animals, and I try my hand at shapeshifting meditations. The form I took first (and only now cause its easier for me) is the lioness. When I was younger though I use to love Egypt and anything to do with it (Yes I loved the Mummy movies so much haha). I use to look at the old temples and wonder what they meant. I wanted to go to Egypt and now that I'm discovering a few unknown things about myself, I want to go even more.

Hope my bloodlines don't clash. Trust me, I'm pale blond hair and blue eye lol

Anyways hope to learn a lot.

-Ratha
