Lots of sounds play a part in my daily practice and in any rituals…
First is music. I often play music in the background when performing a ritual, meditation or even sometimes during my morning prayer. I have found a playlist of music on Spotify called Egypt. It is by a person called Derek Fiechter and has a track for different deities:
Then comes my daily prayer/devotional that is said aloud at my altar each morning:
A Prayer for the Triad of Abydos
Divine Triad of Abydos,
Asar, Auset and Heru,
I Come before you in reverence and love
Asar, mighty ruler of the underworld
Guider of Souls, Bringer of renewal Foremost of Westeners
I honour your wisdom & seek your guidance
Auset, Compassionate queen
and magical healer,
Mother and protector,
embodiment of divine love
I embrace your nurturing presence
and seek your Solace
Heru, falcon God of the Sky and kingship Avenger and protector
of your father Asar
I invoke your strength and justice to prevail
Triad of Abydos, united in divinity.
I Seek your blessing & divine grace
May your wisdom, love and power
fill my life.
Guiding me on the path of truth and transformation
Grant me Strength in times of Challenge, healing in times of pain,
And the courage to rise above adversity.
As I honour you, may your blessings flow, And may your sacred triad be forever praised.
Dua Asar! Dua Auset! Dua Heru!
I also have a shorter one that I say in front of my altar before going to bed:
In the realm of twilight’s embrace, I humbly express my gratitude,
To Asar, Auset, and Heru, whose grace is imbued.
With reverence, I thank you for your celestial sway,
As I surrender to slumber, your blessings light my way.
I also have this pathworking book to help connect with deities:
I have recorded myself reading these aloud and added background sounds and music. It was a bit strange listening to myself at first but I am used to it now…maybe I should have got a friend to record it🤣
