I go by the name of Devo around these parts, and I’m just your average Unseen/astral traveling Kemetic Shintoist. When I started to learn about Pagan paths in my college years. I began with Wicca, one of the ‘easier’ paths to learn about, but eventually decided it wasn’t for me. At that point, Anup and Osiris started to come around, pestering me in my dreams and such. Because of them, I began to learn about Kemeticism, it’s practices, it’s ‘point’.
The more I got into Kemeticism, the more Set made his presence known. He has been a huge support in my life, and has broadened my horizons, and made me stronger all at the same time. A few years after I began working with Set, Osiris came back into my life, and has really driven me to study the Duat and other Underworld texts. While the two might not seem to be a “normal” pairing, I have found that Set and Osiris do work well together, and that they are two halves of one cycle in many ways. Although their past may seem to be rocky, I feel that they have a deeper, mutual understanding with one another, and can relate to each other in ways that other deities in the pantheon may not.
I am no longer a member of the Tsubaki Sukeikai and no longer practice Shinto formally. I do, however, still try to embody and live by Shinto principles, and Shintoism has hugely effected how I interact and work with local land spirits.
Hopefully this helps you to understand me a bit more. If you have any questions, you are always welcome to ask via this blog, in my Tumblr ask box, or via email at devottr |at| gmail |dot| com. I will do my best to answer 🙂
