"Queen of the Night, triple-faced Hekate (heh-KAH-tee) is one of the most ancient images from a pre-Greek stratum of mythology and an original embodiment of the Great Triple Goddess.

Genealogy Hekate is a primordial figure in the oldest stratum of our unconscious. Hekate may have been originally derived from the Egyptian midwife goddess Heket, who in turn evolved into Heq or the tribal matriarch of predynastic Egypt. Hesiod, in Theogony, gives us the following account of her parentage. The Olympian Greeks had a difficult time fitting her in the scheme of their gods. Later traditions make Hekate the daughter of Zeus and Hera and reduce her power to only that of the underworld and the waning dark moon...

As Prytania, Invincible Queen of the Dead, Hekate became a wardress and conveyor of souls through the underworld. Hekate's Triple Nature. Vision Magic Regeneration. Meeting the Dark Mothers – The Goddesses of the Dead {Kimberly Moore} | The Motherhouse of the Goddess. The Dark Goddesses are the Initiators, the Psychopomps, the threshold Goddesses between our world and the otherworld. They mediate our consciousness, expose our shadows and accompany us through the underworld – through our unconscious. Many of the Dark Goddesses are Creators and Destroyers – they hold sway over the most powerful moments in human lives: childbirth, initiation, death, dreams, and both shamanic and psychic experiences. At this time of the year, the Dark Mothers also hold sway over the seasons and are preparing to lead us from the contemplations of Autumn to the deep mysteries of Winter.

In Pagan traditions, Halloween (also called Samhain) is the beginning of the new year – October 31. On these nights of worship and communion, we seek connection to our roots, our Ancestors – a remembrance, a glimpse, a whisper from those who have passed on.

Madonna as Seat of Wisdom, 1199, inscribed as by Presbyter Martinus, from the Camaldolese abbey in Borgo San Sepolcro near Arezzo, Italy In the Roman Catholic tradition, the epithet "the Seat of Wisdom" or "Throne of Wisdom" (a translation of the still-used Latin sedes sapientiae) is identified with one of many devotional titles for the Mother of God.

The iconographic realization of the "Seat of Wisdom" in Italy, especially, is referred to as the Maestà. The phrase Sedes Sapientiae, which was characterized in the 11th and 12th centuries, by Peter Damiani and Guibert de Nogent as likening Mary to the Throne of Solomon, refers to her status as a vessel of the incarnation, carrying the Holy Child. As the phrase associates the Blessed Virgin with glory and with teaching, Madonna-images in this tradition are especially popular in Catholic imagery, while Protestant churches often downplay veneration for Mary (and other saints), and the veneration of images. Cultural history[edit] See also[edit]

O Sapientia – O Wisdom. The Letter Tsade. The letter Tsade (or Tzadi) is the 18th letter of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet, having the numeric value of 90. The pictograph for Tsade looks something like a man on his side (representing need), whereas the classical Hebrew script (Ketav Ashurit) is constructed of a (bent) Nun with an an ascending Yod: Hebrew speakers may also call this letter Tzaddik ("righteous person"), though this pronunciation probably originated from fast recitation of the Aleph-Bet (i.e., "Tzade, Qoph" -> "tsadiq").

From the Canaanite pictograph, the letter morphed into the Phoenician/ketav Ivri, to the (archaic) Greek letter (Sampi), which eventually became the Latin letter "Z. " The Letter Tsade. Hebrew Letter Tzadi. The form of the Letter Tzadi The Letter Tzadi is made from a letter Yood and a Letter Nun. The Nun is bent over at the top of the arm of the arm. This represents the aspect of humility. The Kabbalah teaches that this bent over aspect within the Tzadi represents the humbleness of the Righteous person. The Yood can either be facing the Nun or facing away from the Nun. When the Yood faces away from the Nun the Tzadi represents our world after the coming of Mashiach. When the Yood faces upwards it represents Man running upwards towards God. The Zohar has a prophecy that there will be a period close to the coming of Mashiach that the world will have no Torah Scrolls. There is a story associated with Rabbi Ashlag during the period of 1920's or 1930's.

What is the meaning of this story to you? Can you imagine the screaming in pain that took place from those burning Scrolls? Actually the message in the story is to understand that not all negative Prophecies DO NOT need to manifest. מים = water. The Human Experiment: How We Won’t Win the Rat Race. What Can We Learn from Brain Stimulation in Humans and Rats About Enhancing the Functional Neurobiology of Higher Cognitive Functions? This chapter addresses neuroenhancement and is divided into three parts. Firstly, neuroenhancement is considered in terms of the current societal context of a growing reliance on high level cognitive functions for economic competition. Then, specific research examples involving an increasingly popular neuroenhancement method, transcranial direct current brain stimulation, are discussed regarding what contributions enhancement technologies can make to these higher level cognitive functions.

Speculations are made about the dynamics of relationships between brain structures and functions. The complexity of the involved brain mechanisms is discussed to highlight the intricacy of neural engagement to support these functions. And finally, the indications from empirical research are re-applied to the current state of the systems that employ higher level cognitive functions.

With the wind whipping like it is, visibility varies from poor to pea soup: at times I can’t see past my own hood. There’s a metaphor in there somewhere. Fortunately I can see a big yellow WYDOT plow as it grinds past in the downhill lane. Visibility drops to zero.

The idiom back in the 50s, 60s was “Keeping up with the Jones’s”. Simply put, if your neighbor bought a new Eldorado, while you were still driving your old Chevy Biscayne, they were more successful than you.

One of the dark goddesses, like Persephone, Hecate, and Kali, Lilith expresses the feminine power of the divine, creative life force. If we follow the mythological trail of these dark goddesses back in time to find the source of their darkness and negativity, we discover not only the possibility of a major shift in the collective human image of the feminine, but also some deep undercurrent of unease that needs to be acknowledged and healed in our personal lives.

Lilith first appeared in Sumerian mythology about 5,000 years ago. As "handmaid" to the Goddess Inanna, Queen of Heaven, she would gather men in from the fields for the sacred rites. In another Sumerian story, Lilith lives in the sacred huluppu tree that Inanna has planted in her holy garden, accompanied by the snake who cannot be charmed and the wild Anzu-bird and her young. This story may be the foundation of the most well-known Hebrew myth of Lilith as the first wife of Adam. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Hu, Sia, and Heh | Egyptian religion.

Memphis | ancient city, Egypt. The Book of Caverns. (C-4-5) Ancient Egyptian Underworld | Topoi. In this research project, Daniel Werning investigates the diagrammatic representation of the Ancient Egyptian underworld as attested in the Book of Caverns, an Egyptian Netherworld Book from the 13th century BCE. Research Three great Ancient Egyptian Netherworld Books from the 2nd half of the 2nd millennium BCE each consist of images and accompanying texts which were arranged in a table-like fashion, forming a diagrammatic representation of the underworld. Schema of the Ancient Egyptian Netherworld Book ‘Book of Caverns’ Originally, these books were pieces of knowledge literature which contained the ideas of the Ancient Egyptian theologians about the sun god’s journey from the western to the eastern horizon through the underworld, his transformation and especially his interaction with the inhabitants of the underworld. This knowledge was also the background for nightly rituals and liturgies that were executed during the night by priests in order to support the sun god’s journey.

The Books of the Sky (Heavens) By Roland Mastaff After the death of Akhenaten, signaling the end of the Amarna Period, we find a new set of Books related to the afterlife. These books centered around Nut, who swallows the sun god in the evening, only to give birth to him in the morning. During the day the sun god passes visibly along her body, but during the night, he travels through her body back to the place where he will rise once more. Beginning with Ramesses IV, two of the Books of the Sky were usually placed next to each other on the ceilings of royal tombs. They depicted a double representation of Nut, back to back. The Book of Nut We have actually very few example of the Book of Nut. It was Jean-Francois Champollion and Hippolito Rosellini who published the earliest drawing of the representation of the sky goddess. The book itself is pictorial in nature, and resembles to some degree the Book of the Heavenly Cow. O.

The Temple of Seti I and the Osireion at Abydos. By Jimmy Dunn writing as Peter Rome The Main Temple The temple that the Greeks called the Memnonium in Abydos, actually dedicated to Seti I, Osiris and Isis along with Ptah, Ptah-Sokar, Nefertem, Re-Horakhty, Amun, and Horus, is one of the major archaeological sites in that region. It was begun by Seti I and finished by his son, the great Ramesses II. In fact, this structure built of fine white limestone is actually one of the most impressive religious structures in Egypt. The present facade of the Temple was once the backdrop to the second of the two courtyards, the first of which, along with its entrance pylon, have long since fallen into ruin.

The temple, in the shape of an L, once had a landing quay, a ramp, a front terrace, two pylons, though the outer one is mostly lost, with two courts and pillared porticoes, followed by two hypostyle halls and seven chapels, with additional chambers to the south making up the short leg of the L.
