Interesting Experiences with Anubis
« on: May 10, 2012, 01:22:18 am »
Hello! :)

I have had several interesting experiences with Anubis. You see, I grew up in a highly dysfunctional family, with a lot of abuse and neglect. My mother's favorite word for me was "Stupid". There were times when she would replace my birth name with that ugly word. In my early twenties, I had my name legally changed. I accept my new name to the point that I will instantly look up when someone says it, whereas the mention of my first name gives no registry.

In my talks with Anubis, He calls me by my birth name. This doesn't bother me, because He says it with such gentleness and non-condemnation. I was curious to hear any opinions as to why He might do this?

Thanks so much! :)

Hello!

One of the really big things that Anubis is about is the reintegration of parts and the restoration of wholeness. (Simply attributing him with the act of mummification doesn't exactly do justice to the true intent behind said act.) It would be my guess that in calling you by your birth name, he's trying to help you reclaim some part of yourself that got lost along the way.

That does sound reasonable. The aspects of caretaker and making whole fit that very well.

I probably wouldn't take it as a suggestion to go back to your birth name. Maybe it should be "I am an excellent person who grew from that unpromising soil." If that makes sense.

Hello! :)

I also have come from a broken home, and if you only got 'stupid' and nothing else, you're lucky! :)

He sounds like He's trying to help you start healing your heart. There's no point in nurturing a broken one with the intent to keep it broken, lol. [hugs] He's actually never called me by my own past name yet, but when we first talked together, I had an alternate name I gave him which he called me by. :)

Nice to meet you! It's always good meeting another Anubis person. ^^

He's very quiet. :) I've found that lowering myself into a state of less awareness works better.

Hmm I will have to give that a try next time. I really struggle to even quieten my mind these days, my thoughts are like hyper active children.

It seems like they get that way in a lot of people for some reason. I had that for a brief span of time, but on the theory we control ourselves, we can also learn to keep our thoughts/extra energy in check with practice :)
