SetHi there!

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 πŸ™‚

    Hello there! I was wondering if I have your permission to put a link to your blog on mine. I am compiling a short list of blogs I find helpful/insightful, and I would like to have yours there! Of course, if you would prefer that I not do this, I understand! Though I consider myself new to the Kemetic community, I definitely see you as a large asset to it. Your posts here and on TC have really helped me. Thanks!

    Heya! I wanted to answer your question regarding which blog to use on the Kemetic Round Table project. I apologize for commenting here rather than in the proper thread, however, when trying to comment, for whatever reason the Intense Discussion interface is giving me fits and not letting me comment – at least here at home. I will be using – Excavating Our Souls From the Ruins. ::)

    This may seem a bit random but… is it possible to be Kemetic, without being orthodox?

      (I ask because in some of your posts you mention KO as if you weren’t a part of it)

      Yep πŸ™‚
      Kemetic Orthodoxy is but one organization that approaches the Kemetic faith. It’s entirely possible to be Kemetic, and not be a member of Kemetic Orthodoxy (or a full “convert” into Kemetic Orthodoxy).

    Hi Devo, whilst I don’t know much about Kemeticism or Shinto I’ve enjoyed your posts on connecting with land spirits- so important on all pagan paths whatever the tradition or deities.

    Hello, My names Wishful (not really?) and I have been a bit of fan of your blog as well as β€œThe Rose Bell”. In fact I was using The Rose Bell for a good book list, but it seems that blog has been deleted. It brings me deep sorrow to be unable to access such a useful archive of information, especially of good book reads. I was wondering if you have any idea how I can find The Rose Bell book list, pieces of his blog or even how to contact him. Thank you ( I accidentally posted in the wrong section before this)

      They pretty much stopped talking to me a few years ago and cut all contact with me, so I don’t really know where she went. I know she’s got an art blog over on tumblr, but I forget the URL. If you wanted to get in contact with her, you’d be better off reaching out to her friend, Duskenpath, who would probably know better than I do where she’s at.

        Oh, well thanks for your help. I will probably be able to contact her then. Thanks a ton! And please never delete your blog unless your absolutely certain of it, because I find old posts very useful.

    I’m starting up my own Kemetic blog and would like your permission to link and reference you and your work. It’s been an amazing guideline to get me started and I’d like to expand together upon this work.

    You don’t know me, and it’s not important, but I’ve been following your blog for several years and your insights continue to be helpful to me. Thank you.
