PBP: Miasma, katharmos and preparing for the Gods

Miasma (Μίασμα) literally means 'pollution' and although the theory concerning miasma and diseases was discredited, it still plays a vital role in Hellenismos. Within Hellenic practice, miasma describes the lingering aura of uncleanliness in regards to a person or space through which contact is made with the Gods. Next to piety, being ritually clean is one of the most important things to adhere to within Hellenismos. Miasma occurs whenever the space or person comes into contact with death, sickness, birth, sex, excessive negative emotions and bodily fluids. It also comes from a lack of contact with the Hellenic Gods. Miasma is an incredibly complicated and involved practice and it's often misunderstood--like karma.

Mamiwata est la Mère des eaux, mi-femme mi-poisson, mi-terrestre mi-aquatique, déesse du culte vodun au Togo et au Bénin, esprit de l’eau craint par les pêcheurs du Nigeria et du Ghana, mangeuse d’Hommes qui erre dans la nuit africaine sous les traits d’une revenante, sainte patronne des prostituées de Kinshasa. Mamiwata est une divinité qui est l’objet d’autant de cultes que d’adeptes. Héroïne de contes lacustres et de légendes urbaines, elle recouvre autant de symboles que de cultures, et incarne autant de vertus que d’espoirs, autant de maléfices que de peurs.

Maison de viticulteur à Rauzan (Gironde), ph.B.M., 2008 Ce rapport aux sirènes connut un épisode posthume assez merveilleux. Aphrodite Joins Yemaya & Mami Wata. It’s 30 months ago that I wrote this post about goddesses and my immersion again in studies of the collective unconscious and mythology. I had no vision of a GlamTribale jewelry collection when I joined Aphrodite and Mami Wata in a cohesive vision of female sensuality and its place in the male unconscious mind.
