So I tried reaching out to Thoth for the first time tonight.
I lit some frankincense and poured a glass of cold water. I wanted to try something different for invoking him. I stared at a picture of him for a couple of minutes, then read a couple stories about him. By just focusing on him intensely, I managed to get in contact with him telepathically. I asked if he would meet with me, to which he said yes. When I asked to give him a sign that he was here, he gave me a brief vision in the form of a golden ankh set against what I believe may have been a purple-pink sky.
He manifested in my visions as a tall tan-skinned man with the head of an ibis and exotic Ancient Egyptian clothing; almost, if not exactly, fit for a king. The feathers on his ibis head were a rich blue and green, and he had bright yellow. He was beautiful. My face felt hot and my eyes started watering from his energy, but it settled after a moment.
He was leaning on my wall, scribbling notes. I was really nervous; I didn’t know how to start the conversation. I mean I had adored the Ancient Egyptian gods as a little girl, especially Thoth, since I’m big on creative writing and one of his spheres is writing. I asked him what he was writing. All he said was “Notes.” I didn’t press further. My guess was they were kind of private.
It was then quiet. I tried to speak up, but he laughed. “It’s all right, I know why you called me.” I noticed he glanced over at my offerings and I asked him if the offerings were all right. I then noticed that I didn’t clean up the altar all the way, but he laughed at my embarrassment. “It’s your altar, you can decorate it as you wish.
He then kneeled down closer to me. I could see his handwriting, but it was all in hieroglyphics, so I couldn’t understand it. “You want to form a connection with me.” I said yes. “I noticed that you have formed other connections with Raziel and Azrael. You were very wise to do so.” He then looked at me and said “I will form a bond with you. I know you’ve always been enamored with our lore.” I got really excited and said “Yes! I like you the most!” and then quickly added “Don’t tell Anubis that!” Thoth replied “He wouldn’t mind if you said that.”
He then placed his hand on my foot and told me “I know the secrets of this universe. I have worked with Raziel many times. Call upon me for ideas, help with magic or writing.” He stood up to his full height. “Well, I’d best be off. You have duties to tend to in the morning.” Before he left, I asked him if he preferred to be called Thoth or Djehuty/Tehuti. He said it did not matter. “Pick one and stick with it.” I thanked him for his time and we said goodbye.
As I was writing this, he sent me two visions: one of dancing stars, and another of the moon, but it had a blinking eye in it.
I’m so excited. That’s one off the list.
I’m going to light a little more incense for him and drink the water as thanks.
