Super. Engaging. Darn Intelligent. That’s Thoth, one of our favorite gods, to us.
As per Wiki:
Thoth ( /ˈθoʊθ/ or /ˈtoʊt/; from Greek, from Egyptian ḏḥwty, perhaps pronounced ḏiḥautī) was considered one of the more important deities of the Egyptian pantheon. In art, he was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon, animals sacred to him. As in the main picture, Thoth is almost always shown holding a Was (a wand or rod symbolizing power) in one hand and an Ankh (the key of the Nile symbolizing life) in the other hand. His feminine counterpart was Seshat, and his wife was Ma’at.
Thoth’s chief temple was located in the city of Khmun, later renamed Hermopolis Magna during the Greco-Roman era (in reference to him through the Greeks’ interpretation that he was the same as their god Hermes) and Eshmûnên in the Coptic rendering. In that city, he led the Ogdoad pantheon of eight principal deities. He also had numerous shrines within the cities of Abydos, Hesert, Urit, Per-Ab, Rekhui, Ta-ur, Sep, Hat, Pselket, Talmsis, Antcha-Mutet, Bah, Amen-heri-ab, and Ta-kens.
Thoth played many vital and prominent roles in Egyptian mythology, such as maintaining the universe, and being one of the two deities (the other being Ma’at) who stood on either side of Ra’s boat. In the later history of ancient Egypt, Thoth became heavily associated with the arbitration of godly disputes, the arts of magic, the system of writing, the development of science, and the judgment of the dead.
Our first encounter with Thoth was in April of 2010.
Our entry on the experience:
Have you come across some advertisement about a novena to a saint, like St. Joseph or St. Anthony of Padua? Well, the advertiser was just making known his experience so as to be emulated, hence a way of repaying the saint for favors granted. Which is exactly what I am going to do now.
Last Monday, April 26, with the moon almost full, I did my ritual for Thoth, the god of the moon. I prepared a rolled up candle with a sigil of my intention or wish and anointed it with ghee mixed with Indian saffron (turmeric). I lit the candle and the incense of sage mixed with Seven African Powers oil. I chanted Thoth’s name combined with my secret name and intersperse it with the chanting of my intention. In the process I gazed at the Thoth representation and the candle flame, which was practically dancing before my eyes, revealing some surreal and mesmerizing images. I came out of it contented, exhilarated and enlightened of sorts. Then I took a nap in preparation for my work for the night shift.
On the morning of Tuesday, April 27, as I opened the gates of the supermarket to usher in the day shift, what would I find? On the outside counter where night customers do their ordering, I found letters spelling T h o t h with some weird symbol after. Coincidence? Who would know about Thoth in our neighborhood for him to scribble it?
Me, I consider it a sign of Thoth saying he hears me. And hopefully granting my wish.
Of late, we have dealt with Thoth in earnest. His technology on the Merkaba is the best and the most effective. Would you believe that now we feel more confident and sure of ourself, and that our health has improved with the Thoth meditation on the Merkaba?
This then is an invite for you to try and apply Thoth’s Merkaba technology in this chaotic and confusing age the world is in.
