I practice both Usui and traditional Japanese Reiki, and am happy to perform distance healings. For more information, click the button.
My life as a background Kemetic
My secular name is Isha, and my Shemsu name in the Kemetic Orthodox tradition is Tai'awepwawet, where I am a Shemsu-Ankh. In that tradition I was divined a child of Wepwawet, beloved of Serqet, Bast, and Ra-Heruakhty. I received later beloved divinations which confirmed Hethert-Amenti and Nit-Nebthet-Seshat as beloveds as well.
I'm 34, live in the UK, and have been Kemetic in some form or other for probably about 20 years now. I joined the Kemetic Orthodox House of Netjer in 2009, left in 2011 after some divinations led me to feel Wepwawet wanted me to walk an independent path, and until 2018 I lived as an independent Kemetic.
This was a necessary time for me, I have come to believe. Without a structure and perceived path, I had to figure out where I was going for myself, I had to figure out what I wanted, what I needed, what I believed and why. When I rejoined the House of Netjer in 2018, it was with a much better sense of where I was spiritually.
I am a perpetually tired pigeon, and that can make spirituality hard for me. Faith is faith, but spiritual acts take spoons. Even the act of keeping the Netjeru in my focus is subtly draining, and kicks other things, things I need to be doing, out of my brainspace. But after all these years of ups and downs, closeness and distance, and being taught by my Gods to walk Their path without Their handholding, I still feel I'm in a good place.
I hope I can share some of that with you through the services that I offer on this site.
Dem Gods, Dem Gods, Dem Dry gods
I mention a lot of Gods on this little site. Some information about my experiences with them is in here.
Dem Gods, Dem Gods, Dem Dry gods
There are a lot of Kemetic Gods, lets be honest. And not all of the information about them is easy to digest. Here I present some short(-ish) blurbs about my personal experience with these particular Netjeru, to add clarity as you read the rest of the site.
Wepwawet and Sed
Historically, Wepwawet has been a very jovial, easy-going Netjer with me. A sly grin, a chuckle, a pat on the back, he's been a relaxing God to be close to.
More recently he's been very much more deep into his role as the one over the Ways, an aspect some people might call "Star Jackal". I also get him strongly as King, or Lord of the Two Lands. This new face that he presents to me believes strongly in personal strength and empowerment, though never at the cost of health.
I see a lot of Sed in this Wepwawet, but when I asked "Are you Wepwawet as King, Wepwawet-Sed (syncretisation), or Sed-in-the-form-of-Wepwawet?", I simply got the answer of "Yes". Very helpful.
Hethert was not a Netjer I ever thought I'd know. I was love-averse, and so I was Hethert-averse. But I met her in a Saq (ritual possession), where nothing was said and yet everything was said. I have been a devotee since.
The form of Hethert I get is all Hetherts, but the face she primarily shows me is Hethert-Amenti. This face is just as loving as "vanilla" Hethert, but it's a soft, gossamer love. A faint soothing breeze. A cool drink of milk. Her laughter tinkles quietly, it isn't raucous. She is the shade of the tree that comforts the newly dead, and it is wonderful.
I love divination, and have all of my adult life. I practice tarot and oracle reading, as well as the Kemetic Orthodox system of fedw which is expanded upon below. I am happy to perform readings in any of these systems.
Fedw is a geomantic method of divination taught by Kemetic Orthodoxy. Four objects are thrown, and divined upon. Each diviner throws and divines only for their "Parent" God or Gods, or in some cases, perhaps a "Beloved", or the akhu (blessed dead). Parents and Beloveds are specific categories of Netjeru divined in the Rite of Parent Divination, a rite of passage within Kemetic Orthodoxy.
In my case, I currently divine only for Wepwawet, a jackal God known as the Opener of the Ways. My particular form of Wepwawet varies from easy-going to quite kingly and cosmic, and is heavily influenced by his precursor, Sed.
Fedw is never done for payment, and it cannot answer medical, love, or legal questions, or questions of a serious spiritual nature (eg: "Does my God love me?", "Is X my spiritual Parent?").
Fedw also does not deal well with open-ended or loaded questions, or questions where the client already knows the answer, but guidance is provided to some degree on how to best phrase your query for the system.
Requesting a Reading
To request a reading with any of these systems, please send me a message using the button below. I do not accept payment at this time, but you are welcome to buy me a Ko-Fi (except for Fedw), and you are always welcome to donate time, energy, or money to charity if you feel an energetic exchange is important.
I am currently attuned to Shoden level, and am awaiting a 1st Degree-Master attunement. I have studied Shoden level in traditional Japanese Reiki, and Level 2 in Usui Reiki.
What does that mean though?
In Usui Reiki, I have learned techniques for in-person and distant healing. I am awaiting attunement to 2nd Degree that traditionally "unlocks" distance healing, however as traditional Reiki does not have this limitation I typically feel this restriction is a more modern invention.
Usui Reiki healings tend to involve a standard hand positions, which are followed regardless of the intuition of the practitioner. Additional time may be spent in a given position if the practitioner feels drawn to do so.
Traditional Japanese Reiki
In traditional Japanese Reiki, I have learned techniques for in-person and distant healing. While Shoden is equivalent to level 1 in Usui Reiki, distant healing is taught in some courses at this level.
Traditional healings tend to follow the practitioner's intuition. The practitioner may wait until they feel drawn to an area of the recipient's body, of they may do a "scan" of the recipient's body for areas that may need reiki.
Requesting a Distant Healing
I am happy to do distant healings for people on request. Providing a picture of yourself is optional, but can be helpful. To request a healing please click the button below. I do not accept payment at this time, but you are welcome to buy me a Ko-Fi, or to donate time, energy, or money to charity if you feel an energetic exchange is important.
