PostSubject: 'Vibes' about the goddess Sekhmet?/Doberman dream   Thu Mar 26, 2009 4:55 pm

I'm looking for someone who can help me out with this!

For a while I have totally loved the Egyptian goddess Bastet... today I was led to go and buy a little Bastet figurine to go and put in my new home, so I did it straight away. I texted my friend this evening to say that I put a Bastet in my new house, and she texted me back to ask whether I want her Sekhmet statue. First I graciously declined because I've never really felt connected to Sekhmet, but when I texted "she should go to someone who needs her", I started to get strong vibes around my head... so maybe I'm the person who needs her? When I started typing this whole post online, my third eye started to get all energised as well.

I Googled Sekhmet and still didn't feel like I could totally relate. I'm not sure how I feel about the aggressiveness that's associated with her and I wouldn't want to start emulating that kind of energy - however I do like the association with being powerful, as something I've realised I need to do is own my own power more.

So basically, I'm just wondering if anyone is able to help me out... are my 'vibes' related to the message about owning my own power, or are they vibes that I should actually accept the statue from my friend? I'm thinking maybe I should just listen to the message and not bother taking the statue, but I'm just not sure... so I would appreciate any insights that anyone may have!

Ok, it's the next day and I think I don't feel right about the statue. It seems more like Sekhmet represents my shadow side (whereas Bastet is the side that I want to accept); so maybe I should think more about Sekhmet and how I can integrate the positive qualities while *recognising* the shadow and then seeking balance? I would still love any insights if anyone happens to get any!

I also had a dream last night about a scary dog - I was trying to gain control of the situation, but I didn't feel confident enough to really feel in control. It was like the dog was almost trying to push me to take charge. I'm about to look up the meaning of dogs, but it seems like it's along the same theme as what I see as the positive aspects of Sekhmet - ie, that I need to have more strength, power and confidence within me. unsure

Another thought - the dog was a doberman pincer and I was alone on a dark street when it came up to me. I was really scared of it but I knew I had to find my inner power in order for it to leave me alone. Somehow even though I was trying, I couldn't find that place of inner power strongly enough to be totally convinced of it; I was doing the right things like trying to appear confident and strong, but I didn't completely believe myself. And I think that is actually a problem in my life right now! I wonder if the doberman was a shadow totem sent to test me. scratch I have read that if you don't face up to your shadow totem, those qualities that you fear will continue to hold you back in life - but once you have faced it, that totem will be a strong force in protecting you in life. Hmm. I really don't like dobermans AT ALL, but it would be a massive empowerment if I had a doberman spirit protector. Shocked

They freak me out:
Probably because I feel my personality is more like this:

Hmm....

I'm not so well-versed in totems and gods, but I'll give you my opinion on the subjects. blu wink

First of all, I want to say that in my experience, a person is rarely complete by just having one side. I don't think even I myself know all sides of me. I do know a few that are pretty, and a few that are not so pretty. And since they are part of me, I've learnt to accept them, and by doing that, I feel, not *complete*, but *more complete* than I did before. (I think this is a lifelong journey, however, towards full completion.)

If what you say is true, that Sekhmet represents your dark side, then I think you need to accept that, and even embrace your dark side. Well, maybe not embrace it, but take it to yourself, and accept that it's part of you. If you do, you will be stonger, more complete. And Bastet will provide the counterweight and balance. She represents *another* side of you, that you have already accepted. Unfortunately, humans aren't so lucky that they can choose which sides of themselves they want, and more's the pity. blu wink

I think I can even relate this to the Dobbie. You said that you tried to appear confident and strong. That's not a good idea. If you try, it hurts. I have a friend who rants on all about this Law of Attraction. During his rants, I've picked up a few things, such as a very useful motto: What we resist persists. And trying to appear confident and strong is a way of resisting, resisting your fear that is. And as said, that's not a good idea, because that just means it will persist. Instead, you need to be more strong and confident.

If you accept your other side, on the other hand, I have a feeling that with it will come courage, and more self-security and strength, strength of character and strength of mind. Think about it. You can't really be secure in yourself if you fight against your own person. If this really is your shadow totem, then perhaps it is waiting for you to accept your *entire* person, not just the part of you that you like. If you accept your Sekhmet side, then I think you may very well find it much easier to face this Dobbie, without any effort, or at least, with far less effort, far more courage, and far less bravado. blu wink

Those are, at least, my thoughts on what you've told. I hope it helps. big grin

That makes perfect sense, Virus. With the shadow side though, the problem is that I could be very destructive and nasty, if I wanted to be; I'm a Scorpio moon, so it's there. One example is that I used to enjoy having revenge thoughts if somebody wronged me. But that seems to have faded away in the past year or so, and I feel much better for it. So the thing is, if I don't see a purpose to being Sekhmet-like anymore, and I'm just not *feeling* it, then I'm not sure how to accept and integrate it?

Well, I'm no expert, but first of all, you need to accept that you once enjoyed having revenge thoughts, though you don't do that any longer - which, of course, is good. It was a part of your person once, but you've developed, maybe even because you already have accepted that this vengeance-side was part of you. You can't defeat something you don't acknowledge, after all.

But what I really think you need to do then is study your own feelings under a magnifying glass. If you are drawn to Sekhmet, then that probably means it is still a part of your person, though from what you tell, a part that has no say in your actions. On the other hand, if you do not feel drawn to it, then it will (hopefully) eventually fade away and disappear from your life, because it's not you.

Remember, though - our feelings, especially gut feeling, is a sort of guideline for how we are supposed to live our lives. (Again, compliments of my friend. He's smarter than he looks, hehe.) If you feel good, that means you're moving in the right direction. If you feel good distancing yourself from the Sekhmet part, then that means you are moving in the right direction, and that probably means that it isn't really one of your sides (any longer?). It's a bit of a double-edged knife, however. In my case, I felt like crap a few times when thinking of these sides, but when I finally accepted them, it felt good. So if these thoughts persist even when you move away from them, then I'd say they probably still are part of yourself.

And if the case is that Sekhmet isn't really a part of you, then perhaps, and now I'm just speculating, perhaps there are other sides of you that you haven't yet found and accepted, dark as well as bright sides. And then perhaps this shadow totem is waiting for something of that kind to happen within you. Personal development, you know. blu wink Just because we grow older we don't stop to develop as persons, as we gain more experiences, and life shapes us. In this case, I think you need to keep in mind to accept all sides of you, and then be patient. If this truly is your shadow totem, then you will have another chance to meet it when you're ready, and you won't have any trouble at that time. By then, you'll be cool as a cucumber, methinks, and it'll be the doggie being humbled by your strength and confidence. blu wink


Edit: I realized I probably rambled off a bit there. Not sure if I fully answered your question, but these are my 2 cents. Maybe the others in the forum has advise as well. blu wink

Sekhmet (Sakhmet) is one of the oldest known Egyptian deities. Her name is derived from the Egyptian word "Sekhem" (which means "power" or "might") and is often translated as the "Powerful One".

"Sekhmet was represented by the searing heat of the mid-day sun (in this aspect she was sometimes called "Nesert", the flame) and was a terrifying goddess. However, for her friends she could avert plague and cure disease. She was the patron of Physicians, and Healers and her priests became known as skilled doctors. As a result, the fearsome deity sometimes called the "lady of terror" was also known as "lady of life".

GemLover, I got that info from a site that I think you will enjoy.

http://www.ancientegyptonline.co.uk/index.html

Just as you feel drawn to certain gems, I think you will know your answer by looking at the statue, picking it up and sensing if it is right for you. Listen to your intuition and have confidence in what it has to tell you. We all have different aspects to our personalities. Sekhmet has the elements of power, healer etc. As the article says: the fearsome deity sometimes called the 'lady of terror' was also known as 'lady of life'. I often see in your posts Gem, that you have the answers you seek, you just need the courage and strength to believe in yourself and your intuition.

That pic of the doberman reminded me of something that happened to me many years ago. Once my friend and I were walking to her house and we heard a whimpering on her porch. Knowing there was an animal in distress of course we had to check it out. My friend went up the stairs, screamed and ran back down again. I froze. There in the corner shivering and whimpering was a little doberman puppy. I too was afraid of the dog, but he did not bear his teeth or utter a growl. I Called to my friend that it was ok, it was just a puppy and he was cold and scared. I sowly approached the puppy and let him sniff my hand before attempting to pet him. My God gem, he was sooooo sweet! never again did I look at a doberman the same. Well, caution is always best of course. LOL So if the doberman in your dream is a gaurdian of sorts, I would welcome him.

Wow... AWESOME thoughts, Virus and Nightie! I'm definitely going to take some time to process all of your points... although I'll say for now, I definitely feel like things have shifted in a more positive direction for me in the past year or so with the things like revenge thoughts. I also accept that they were part of my personality, but at the same time I feel more distant from that now. I actually noticed this very recently when I was listening to one of my favourite bands and I noticed that some of their songs are really emotionally intense and one or two of them had some really hurt/'I want revenge'-type lyrics; while I could recognise myself in it, it was more like "I've been there and I'm in a lighter/happier place now". I think the doberman thing definitely relates to believing in my personal power... so today I started saying affirmations for it - "I am a strong and confident woman, and I believe in my own strength and personal power"; I'm going to take that as a first step in learning to believe on a deeper level that I am strong and to know that I do have my own answers too.

I'm going to be offline for a couple of days as I don't have internet access at my new place until Monday, but I'll come back then and respond more fully to all of your thoughts! Thank you!!!

haha gem, take the statue! It is meant to go to you, the thought would of never even entered your friend's mind if that was not the case.

Even if it does represent the shadow self, you must strive to confront and integrate the two sides of your self to become one.

Now, Sekhmet is linked with Sothis(Sepdet), the Egyptian name for Sirius defined as a Goddess, (usually depicted with a star on her head).

... and the dog? I believe this is a pseudo-reference to the DOG STAR (Sirius)! This would make perfect sense when coupled with the Egyptian references.

Here is some more info that you may find intriguing ...

oooh, this is really exciting gem! I feel a sense of trepidation connected to you at this time, an awakening of sorts. Keep us posted! good luck

Ooh wow, thanks Lilith! Very interesting perspective. In the article you posted the link to, it said that statues of Sekhmet can cause people to feel apprehensive - and you know, that is actually how I feel about this particular statue. So that's what's making me unsure. I know Bast is a protector of women, but is Sekhmet a protector also? I could always take the statue and then give it to someone else if I don't feel right... but, this sense of apprehension about it is really throwing me. scratch

is it apprehension or is it a sort of feeling of nervous tension/butterflies?

When I pick up on or "feel" powerful energy, it usually occurs in my stomach area (solar plexus) and manifests as something similiar to anxiety symptoms (a severe case of the butterflies).

I don't know if that makes any sense, it is difficult to explain. If the statue really doesn't sit comfortably with you, then go with your gut instinct ... but that energy you felt in your hand, that is very intriguing to me ... like the statue was manifesting itself (with psi energy) in your hand. Whoever owns this statue now, obviously has "programmed" it to be a very powerful symbolic tool. I wonder why she wishes to give it away?

I think it's more of an apprehension relating to how powerful I think the energies are, maybe. The energies were around my head rather than in my hand, though. The statue was given to my friend last year, by someone who insisted that she have it. She had it in her room, and that's when I saw it myself - I felt that 'apprehensive' feeling then as well. Since then, my friend has decided that the statue is not for her and that she should pass it on to someone else. Even while I'm typing this I can feel my crown chakra doing it's tingly thing. So I'm still not quite sure. I get why I could benefit from a bit of "powerful woman" energy, though.

Maybe the amount of energy is the problem.... maybe its too much for you to handle without added grounding....
And the feeling you are getting is somewhat like energy overload and your body doesn't know how to deal.... so it makes you uncomfortable....
I get that way around people that are giving off too much...... It feels horrible... but when I bubble myself and use the energy and pass it along or back to the earth I can handle better...

just a thought... mr green

Ahhh that makes sense too, Shannon. I'm not a big fan of being around *too much* energy, simply because I'm very sensitive and can get overloaded. So that's a really really good point.

Strangely enough, today I was out and walking past a jewellery stand on my way to KMart. I went over to have a look and my eyes went straight to the labradorite jewellery. This is the same place that MB led me to get my moonstone pendant just over a year ago. Anyway I knew straight away I had to get this medium-sized oval labradorite - not that I could afford it, so I used my credit card. tongue The pendant is amazing! I love it! Now that I'm home, I looked up labradorite and it works with the whole idea of Bastet and Sekhmet. I just happen to be wearing *both* the moonstone and the labradorite together, and I found that labradorite is the sister, crone aspect, to moonstone - just as Sekhmet is the sister, crone aspect to Bastet! Shocked I'm actually so happy that I'm wearing these two stones together and I feel like it has something to do with positive changes in my life. Labradors, btw, also happen to be my favourite dogs......

Some info on labradorite:
http://www.shimmerlings.com/gemstones/labradorite.htm
http://key2healing.com/labradorite.html

It fits me so much in terms of preventing energy leakage, and the fact that I do tire easily in the company of others...

Wow... I really feel awesome about this stone!

clap ... well said harmony. I can totally relate to that description. 'Energy overload' describes it perfectly.

I agree that is really is the most horrible feeling. Powerful energy can be really overwhelming. Apart from the nervous tension/nausea/butterfly effect, sometimes I also experience hot flushes through my entire body, or my hands will just shake and it feels like they are burning up or giving off heat. seered

I too have found that channeling it through into the earth is quite helpful but I still find that particular aspect difficult to do for some reason. It tends to just sit like a big fat blurgghh in my stomach.

I need to master how to do this, hehe -> jedi 1

Energy overload for me is usually light-headedness and a "we have liftoff!" effect. twista A friend of mine actually *saw* me starting to come out of my body recently. I can find ways to ground myself again but it does take an effort.

Wow... that is a huge synchronicity! I wonder if your rock really is spectrolite?? It does encourage communication from other planes, as well as bringing subconscious information to the surface.

Moonstones are lovely. agree

oooh labradorite. I walked into my favorite store years ago, ready to cry. I was overwhelmed and the woman inside noticed this. She handed me a huge stone and said walk around the store with it. It was labradorite. By the time I left, all the neg energy was gone.
I now have a beautiful pendant that reflects the light, and huge blue mirror in it a eye or light. I don't always have it on..... but it is the best stone.....

good call!

Reminds me... I should go and get my labradorite right now, to get rid of some negativity from an annoying afternoon. Men!!! grrr

No need to thank me, you probably knew all along that you needed it. ;) I must admit I have calmed down a lot since I put mine on today... can you say 'severe PMS'? I still have some tension but most of it has balanced out for now. Shocked

It just occured to me - do you think the 'mirror' effect of your pendant can actually help to reflect negative energies away? I was thinking it would be so awesome to have a pendant with a little mirror in it to wear as protection...

I wonder then if reflection is so strong, would any stone that is reflective... say anything with a metal in it... opal aura... oh I can't remember all the names.....etc... if they would have the same properties... of reflection... I know this is stretching a bit... but because of the reflective nature of metal......?????
