Another goddess who is seemingly always around me for some reason.
Bastet I first found back in my Christian days when everything terrified me. Then I forgot all about her-I knew only of her name as Bast from Black Panther.
By the beginning of my path in October when I was introduced to the Norse gods and the Norse path, I stuck to it. Then, I eventually went through a very tough break-up on me in the beginning of November. So tough it took me 6 months to get over.
So, by the middle of November I was stuck in a pit. I never saw any way of getting out of it, friends teased me for being a witch, I lost someone I thought I was in love with and in the end, I closed myself off from everything in the world.
What does this have to do with Bastet? Well, in November I began to learn of the God self. (And also had to deal with Shax following me around as well). I started seeing hieroglyphs in my vision beginning off with the helios.
I had been in contact with Djehuti for some time and he started to help me understand more of myself. Djehuti acts to me like a mentor/big brother. I asked about the glyphs I was seeing and he replied with this
“I cannot tell you what the glyphs mean for you, only help you to understand for yourself”
Soon after, I was given an Ankh that I placed in my heart. The glpyhs I had been seeing were giving me a message, “You are a god, you must awaken”. In the sense, I needed to realise what my god form was. Upon further work, these were the Egyptian gods that appeared before me.
Ra, Isis, Osiris, Neith, Bastet, Djehuti and Anubis.
From the beginning of my path, I took upon the name Mani-it’s the old Norse word for Moon and also the god of the moon. Turns out, my god form goes by two names. Mani and Khonsu.
Those seven who appeared before me were giving me a chance to see that. It was then on, I learnt something else. Whether or not it is true.
I had done research into what Khonsu was, all available info I could find on him and I had learnt, his wife was Bastet. From then on, Bastet never left my side, no matter what. It was strange because I began to ask myself
“Is she a tulpa? Is this real? Did I create this because of my heartbreak?”
And here I am still, with Bastet still around me, treating me as a spouse for some reason. She fancies having more kids again for some reason.
I’ll log more from what I’ve seen eventually.
