Strange Anubis UPG
« on: August 07, 2012, 06:58:13 am »
Hi folks,

I was wondering what kinds of UPG people have experienced with Anubis? Mine is pretty strange. Whenever I feel him close to me, I can't help experiencing a kind of feeling of...lust I guess? I know this is pretty bizarre ( and believe me, I'm NOT PART of those subcultures that include Furries etc.), but I can't understand why I would feel 'turned on' by his presence.

I'm sorry this is a REALLY awkward question to ask, (and I REALLY hope I am not breaking any forum rules by asking it!) but I am just mega confused and curious as to whether other people have experienced strange internal happenings when the gods are close.

Peace out my lovelies!

Most people will probably tell you that those sort of feelings are just the way your body happens to 'process' the energy of the god and that nothing more should be read into it. And that may indeed be the case.

I, however, will point out that Anubis was associated with demotic love spells and was called upon, amongst other things, to inspire erotic dreams in people. And jackals in general were considered to be rather sexy creatures in the Ancient Egyptian mindset. The word for jackal, sAb, has an alternative meaning of 'to flow, to ejaculate' so it really gets very blatant!

I agree that it is an accident of how the body sometimes processes energy. I also think that some, not all, of Them are fully aware of this 'accident' and make no apologies about it.

In my case, I'm sure that Ra means nothing by it at all, while Heru-sa-Aset I'm not too sure about. (What do you expect from someone who aspects with Min?) They're still not human though, so be careful what you read into it.

I have heard others mention this before, so you are not alone.  I myself experienced this way, waaaaaay back in the day.  Long before I even knew exactly what I was dealing with.

I concur with what others have previously stated about the body processing energy.  It may also be the case that this is a new energy to you, so you are not used to it yet.  The more you experience Him the more you will adapt.

(Of course what I was actually suggesting is that it might not be entirely down to how your body is interpreting the energy, because it is attested that Anubis does or did have a role in causing sexual desire in people.)

A friend of mine has a Horus head from a statue that originates from ancient Egypt, it is a few thousand years old at least. Now every time anyone touches it the result is, well, unusual. There is no other way of putting this apart from they get aroused... odd but true lol

Keep in mind that this is a family forum -- just because you don't see children posting does not mean they are not reading.  Make sure this topic stays academic and G-rated.

Bezenwepwy, I never knew Anubis had that association! Just goes to show you that you learn something new every day. Do you know why Anubis was called upon for this purpose?

One thing I am definitely learning through working with him was that he was certainly much more than a deity of funerary rites!

I also kind of feel that Anubis had a role in prophecy and divination? Any thoughts?

Also - Yineputjeheni, I'm so glad you've had this experience too!! I'm not alone! And I totally agree, I think it is the case that I am experiencing a being that is entirely new - and in many ways alien - to what I know already. So thank you for your reassurance.

pickle1984 - That is fascinating, and ever so slightly entertaining :P

Part of it has to do with how he was perceived in the later Greek-influenced periods. He started to be prayed to as a much more general benefactor and intermediary who was 'closer' than the other gods. And very willing to pull Unseen strings for people. Also as I implied before, there were already some standing connections with sexuality which probably came into it.

(Even in the New Kingdom he started to be seen as a more worldly god however, so the expansion of his spheres of influence wasn't purely down to Greek influence. More a natural progression I reckon.)

Oh yes! He's extremely complex and it really doesn't do him any justice whatsoever to describe him as merely a "god of the dead."

Yup! For the same reasons as above. Situated as he is smack dab inbetween the Seen and Unseen realms, he's in an excellent position for that kind of thing. He's also the Master of Secrets. :)

I was wanting to ask a question along the same lines as the OP, but I was too shy to ask it. Kudos to the OP for asking! Btw, how can you *not* feel that way about Yinepu, especially when you see artwork of Him bare-chested.... ;)

Hotep everyone *henu*

Interesting about Yinepu ..I've never felt that way towards him but each of us process the 'energy' in a different way.

I do a lot of work in divination and it seems to be something that Yinepu is fond of doing ..as mentioned he does guard the door between the seen and unseen worlds in addition to being the master of the secrets so he's good with all that. I've used pendulum, fedw sticks and quarters, cards etc (anything that has two faces/sides to it can be used).

Thanks for all the input ...gives me more to think about.

I was looking through my notes and found a wonderfully blatant statement from one of the greek magical papyri:

I have heard of such experiences before.  And I have had such experiences with other Names.   Whether it's intention on their part or coincidence I think will depend on the situation, the Name and the person involved.
