Anuket the Embracer: The veneration of this great goddess spread from her sacred island of Sehel in the cataract region of Upper Egypt, to the north in Heliopolis and south beyond the boundaries of the ancient Egyptian kingdom into Nubia. She was present in the waters of the land, and the river of the underworld. Anuket is pictured in the zodiacs at Dendera, where she helps bring the stars and deities “back into creation.” We will explore the myths of this goddess who was “Eye of the Moon”; “Nourisher of the Fields” and “Giver of All Joy of the Heart.”
11:00am – 12:00pm Hapi, God of the Inundation – Rev. Michael Starsheen
Hapi was one of the most important gods in ancient Egypt, as he controlled the flow of the Nile River, the lifeblood of Egypt. He is generally shown as having both male and female characteristics, echoing his nurturing nature. He is depicted as a man with the breasts of a woman. Often, his influence is divided into a northern and a southern half, as symbolized by the two caves through which the Nile flowed at Elephantine. Hapi is associated with Osiris, Nun, and the gods Tchabu (god of drink) and Nepra (god of wheat), both of which were essential to life on the Nile.

“The Twin Flame connection is the most transformative connection you will ever experience. There’s a split of your soul somewhere on this planet, or between realms or is about to be revealed to you soon. More and more souls are recognizing their true Twin Souls on this Golden Age more than ever. The Universe is facilitating the meeting and connection of the other vessel of our true selves to conjunctly raise the vibration of the planet through Unconditional Love, the true language of Goddessence. I’ve been gifted with this divine gift after meeting, recognizing and accepting my own Twin in this lifetime. He has now passed on to the Underworld. I believe it’s my duty as a Priestess to pass on this knowledge to others who are ready to peel off the layers of separation and open up to their Twin Flames who are wanting and searching for the same right now, somewhere in the Universe. Like Rumi wrote: ” What you seek is seeking you”.
