Goddess sex and healing
nfr hmt Goddess
tomb of Queen Nefertari
The Egyptian word for beautiful is nfr and the word for woman (as well as for priestess) is hmt. The ancient Egyptian nfr is typically transliterated as nefer (as in Queen Nefertiti or Queen Nefertari) and hmt is typically transliterated as hemet.
There are women who are sometimes called sacred prostitutes (as contrasted with profane prostitution). Do not ever use the term sacred prostitution to describe what you do. Not only is the term disrespectful (it comes from Victorian britain and reflects a Christian belief that all sex is horribly bad), but it uses the legal word prostitution and you want to emphasize that you are not a prostitute.
These women were highly regarded in ancient civilizations, including ancient Egypt. It was believed that these women transcended mere humanity and actually became the Goddess incarnate. Men having sex with these special women were actually having sex with the Goddess, not with a human woman.
In ancient Egypt this typically occurred in the temples of Het Heret (Hathor) and Bes. By Roman times this was also occuring in temples of Bast and Isis.
A modern woman who engages in this practice in the U.S. runs the risk of arrest and imprisonment at the hands of zealous Christian believers in positions of government power.
A modern woman who feels the divine call to be a beautiful woman, or nfr hmt Goddess, should consult with a skilled attorney to properly prepare for unconstitutional and immoral harassment at the hands of zealous Christians in positions of government power.
Cant emphasize that enough: consult a lawyer. While Pr Ntr Kmt can give you accurate religious information, only a competent lawyer can give you competent legal advice.
Important warning: Despite the existence of the Bill of Rights, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the United Nations Declaration of Universal Human Rights, a U.S. citizen runs the risk of being arrested for any religious practice that is against the beliefs of the officially established U.S. government version of the Christian religion. Do not start this religious practice without first consulting a skilled attorney who knows both constitutional and criminal law in your particular state.
Important warning: The following is religious advice, not legal advice. Make sure you consult with a lawyer before practicing.
An important part of religious rituals is an offering or sacrifice to the Goddess. This offering may be in gold or other precious metals, in frankincense, myrrh, and other valuable herbs and incenses, or even in cash or money. A portion of the offering is kept by the nfr hmt Goddess. Consult with your nfr hmt Goddess in advance to determine the appropriate offering for the particular ritual or rituals that are needed. The offering shoiuld be presented to the temple or the nfr hmt Goddess in advance of the start of the religious ritual (often when the appointment is made).
Important warning: Make sure that the offering or donation is clearly separated from any ritual or other activity. It is best to consult with a lawyer to determine the best methods for avoiding prosecution.
The basic standard for religious freedom is that the activity must be required by sincerely held religious belief.
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act is a federal law that requires that the federal government allow religious activity even when the activity is otherwise illegal as long as certain standards are met. The two most important standards are that the law not specifically prohibit a religious exemption and that the activity be required by sincerely held religious belief.
Several states have their own versions of the law (often with the same name) that imposes the same standards on those states laws. These states are: Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, New mexico, Oklahoma, Rhode island, South Carolina, and Texas.
In other states it may require greater skill by your lawyer (and/or sympathy by the jury) to establish your religious rights.
In California (prior to the existence of the RFRA) a woman was arrested and charged with prostitution. She argued that she was a priestess of Isis and not a prostitute. According to the newspaper accounts at the time, the jury was ready to accept her explanation and her religious rights until the prosecutor asked a series of simple questions about Isis that the woman was unable to answer.
When you raise a religious defense, a prosecutor might attempt to show that your belief is not actually sincere.
While it should be the case that even stupid people can have sincerely held beliefs, the California case shows the importance of learning enough about your beliefs to defend them on the witness stand.
In 2002 the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled that a Rastafarian defendant had the legal right to possess and use cannabis because it was required by his religion, but that he did not have the right to import cannabis because his religion didnt require importing Jamaican cannabis. See federal case.
There are many ways that a person can establish that a religious belief is a requirement.
The easiest method is to find a written document that clearly states the requirment. Throughout history there have been individuals (usually called prophets) who have written laterials that they claim they obtained from the divine. In the Greek religion (Hellenism), they took this concept to the extent of believing that all artwork was divinely inspired (the word inspiration literally means the divine is breathing into the soul of the artist). Automatic writing is a relatively modern phenomenon in which a person holds a pen or other writing implement and waits for the divine or some other spirit to move the pen or their hand.
Another method is a vision. This vision can occur in a dream or can occur during ann altered state of consciousness. In modern times this method most commonly occurs in shamnic/tribal religion, New Age religions, and Witchcraft.
A third method is to use the mind to reason the will of the divine. A person can determine intellectually that the divine requires her to have a specific religious belief and/or practice.
It will be useful to document the method by which you learn that you have a specific religious requirement. A diary or other similar record should be fine. It would be wise to consult with a lawyer and have the lawyer review your written account and possibly make recommendations for an improved version.
It is probably useful to make sure that your activity is clearly a religious practice. Again, it is useful to consult with a lawyer.
Some or all of the following practices may help distinguish your religious practice from profane prostitution:
Goddess While a priestess can worship the Goddess or a specific Goddess. Some of the (very many) Goddesses that were involved in this practice include: Hathor, Anahita, Aphrodite, Ariadne, Asherah, Bast, Cybele, Diana, Easter, Inanna, Ishtar, Isis, Persephone, Rhea, and Venus. Women priestesses also served in the temples of the Gods Bes, Dionysus, and Bacchus. (Articles on these Goddesses being added.
Sacred sexuality Even in the ancient temples, not all priestesses engaged in sacred sexuality. Sacred sexuality is a calling from the Goddess and each priestess must determine for herself if she has been called to a required religious practice of sacred sexuality. Unfortunately, overzealous Christian authorities may claim that even non-sexual activity (such as massage or erotic dance) by a non-Christian priestess is supposedly against the Christian laws of the U.S. or a particular state (even though the U.S. Constitution and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act clearly protect both sexual and non-sexual religious activity).
Opening ceremony There should probably be a clear opening ceremony. At a minimum this opening ceremony will establish the location as a holy or sacred place. The casting of a protective circle is one of the easiest methods. This ceremony may also transform the priestess into the Goddess and/or transform the man undergoing the ritual.
Invocation At some point the priestess will almost certainly want to invoke the Goddess. This is the key ritual in which the human woman becomes the Goddess or the Goddess takes over the womans body.
Closing ceremony There should probably be a clear closing ceremony. At a minimum this closing ceremony returns the participants to an ordinary or non-religious state. The standard methods for closing a circle can serve this purpose.
Altar Building a clear altar to the Goddess is one of the most important and obvious evidence of religious purpose. It also gives a flat workspace for ritual tools, herbs, and other items. Any flat surface will work. Rock and wood were the two most common materials for altars. A statue, painting, or icon of the Goddess is commonly the centerpiece of an altar. Incense censors, candles, various natural items (herbs, stones, crystals, feathers, etc.) are all common altar items.
Incense All of the ancient cultures used some form of incense. This varied from something as simple as burning a single pleasant smelling substance to intricate and complex combinations of expensive incenses and herbs specifically prepared taking into consideration the needs of the particular man and the exact astrological timing. A simple historical incense is to burn a little bit of cinnamon in cannabis (note: do not suck cinnamon smoke directly into your lungs, this is an incense that you want to breath from the air).
Candles Candles are long associated with fertility magick and religious activity. In addition to serving as mood lighting, the shape and colors of candles can have specific meanings for specific deities and Goddesses. If you don't know the intricacies of candle meanings, a simple white candle is acceptable (and often the preferred choice) for any Goddess. Small tea candles (originally intended for use in tea ceremonies) have the advantage of burning for short known periods of time. See the article on candle magick.
Clothing Special clothing can help demark the religious nature of the ritual. The clothing should be both sexy and religious, as well as easy to remove. Many of the ancient priestesses worked naked (attitudes about clothing were different back then). Ceremonial robes (with or without anything else underneath) have a long historical record. The costume of a belly dancer and other similar clothing also have a long history in Africa and around the Mediterranean. The elaborate costume of the Geisha is the most famous of Asian clothing.
Dance and music Both dance and music were common parts of ancient practices.
Massage Massage was a common part of the total ritual in most ancient cultures. The priestesses typically mixed their own massage oils, mixing specificlly chosen herbs with some base oil (see article on mixing essential oils. Modern massage techniques can effectively be combined with ancient massage techniques.
Tantra Although the Hindu religion is best known for Tantra, many of the practices of Tantra appeared in ancient Egypt (probably because of trade between the two civilizations).
Yoga Although the Hindu religion is best known for Yoga, many of the practices of Yoga appeared in ancient Egypt (probably because of trade between the two civilizations). Actor Woody Harrelson has indentified Yoga positions in ancient Egyptian wall paintings.
Bath A bath tub is useful for a wide variety of ritual, from water baptisms to sacred baths.
Hearth A hearth or fireplace is useful for a wide variety of ritual, as well as for cooking and preparation of various potions, creams, incenses, teas, etc.
You will want to consult with your lawyer and determine what is the best documentation for supporting your legal case.
Important warning: Consult with a lawyer before preparing any written documentation of your own. Correctly worded ocumentation can help your defense, while incorrectly worded documentation can give unintended evidence for the Christian prosecution to use against you.
Pr Ntr Kmt offers religious title certificates. See the article on certificates.
Additionally you will want some kind of written record of the experience that led you to realize that you have a religious requirement.
And you will probably want a written record of the details of your entire ritual as you practice it.

Any particular nfr hmt may use a combination of ancient and modern ceremonies and rituals. The following is a very incomplete list of some of the most commonly performed religious ceremonies.
Couples ritual Most modern Westerners think of sacred sexuality as being between a female priestess and a male participant. Couples work can be spiritually transforming for a couple as well as for an individual and can help a couple achieve a divine closeness.
Dance Dance and music were extremely important in ancient Egyptian temples. The modern form of dance called belly dancing is directly derived from ancient Egyptian and Pygmy worship of Bes, the God of dance and music. A particular nfr hmt Goddess may use dance from any modern or ancient tradition or create a new dance form from divine inspiration. Dance is often performed as a preparation for other rituals.
Double Goddess Most sacred ritual can be done with two or more nfr hmt Godddesses. Some nfr hmt Goddesses will have attendants.
Female Sacred Spot Tantra and other ancient knowledge can be used to stimulate the female sacred spot. Ritual bath, erotic dance, and massage are among the possible ways that a nfr hmt Goddess might prepare a woman for the Female Sacred Spot ritual. This may also be performed with a couple, where the nfr hmt Goddess guides the couple in learning how to achieve a full and rewarding sex life together. Some nfr hmt Goddesses might teach men how to sexually fulfill women at a spiritual level.
Goddess Worship Both men and women may worship the divine Goddess through the body and person of the nfr hmt Goddess. There is a wide variety of methods (both ancient and modern) for a person to participate in Goddess Worship.Some of the more popular forms of Goddess worship include: performing chores while nude or in womens clothing, foot worship, golden blessing, ejaculation control, transfer of sexual energy, and transvestism.
Laying on of Hands Laying on of hands is a well-established and ancient religious practice used for healing. Modern acupuncture and massage are directly descended from this ancient practice. Even the Christians claim that the mythological Jesus used laying on of hands to heal the sick and injured and raise the dead through the use of this ancient method of divine magick.
Male Sacred Spot Tantra and other ancient knowledge can be used to stimulate the male sacred spot. Ritual bath, erotic dance, and massage are among the possible ways that a nfr hmt Goddess might prepare a man for the Male Sacred Spot ritual.
Punishment Some persons have a need for a nfr hmt Goddess to perform some kind of punishment ritual to atone for past behavior and to purify for the future. This may include whippings, spankings, tight bondage, transvestism, paddlings, cutting, or other similar activities.
Ritual Bath The Romans are most famous for their ritual baths, but this was a practice common in almost all ancient cultures. The healing power of water (a feminine Goddess energy) is used to reinvigorate and heal the person undergoing the ritual. There are both hot and cold baths. Various minerals, herbs, and other materials may be added, based on the wisdom of the nfr hmt Goddess conducting the ritual. This may be combined with massage, Tantra bodywork, sacred sexuality, or other sacred practices.
Tantric Healing Ritual Similar to the Transformative Healing Ceremony but with an emphasis on the healing power of Tantra.
Kundalini is the coiled snake of power that starts at the root chakra, rises up the spine, and emerges from the third eye in the center of the forehead. The statues of the Pharaos show a cobra emerging from their third eye. This is a manifestation of the the ancient Egyptian Goddess Het Heret (whom the Greeks called Hathor) and of the ancient Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet (Skhem is the ancient Egyptian word for divine power). The Greeks called this cobra emerging from the forehead the Living Uraeus of Ra.
A nfr hmt may wear a metal handband or headdress with a Uraeus cobra. This religious item will help establish the religious intent of the priestess and help the nfr hmt call on the power of the feminine divine.
Transformative Healing Ceremony The ntr hmt Goddess performs a ceremony or ritual that transforms and heals through Goddess energy. This may or may not include sacred sexuality. The use of herbs, incenses, oils, teas, and other magickal preparations are common. This may or may not include massage.
Womens ritual Most modern Westerners think of sacred sexuality as being between a female priestess and a male participant. Ancient Egyptians didnt have the Christian/Islamic-inspired sexual hang-ups of modern times. Women can seek out the services of a nfr hmt Goddess.
