Het Heru the Goddess of Flowers is in the House

Het Heru's favourite flowers: Yellow Roses

Beloved Flower Lover,

If you ever wanted to know how ancient people used flowers in their lives you could look at the creative rituals surrounding the most famous of all Goddesses, Het Heru, also known as Venus, Aphrodite,  and Oshun. 

Why does this matter now?

The answer is simple, we carry her within us all now… let us explain some more.

 We found an amazing short article that talks about how this Goddess is linked to our imaginations and that this is the perfect time to imagine an ideal life. To imagine ourselves happy, healthy, and experiencing the blessings of life.

You would think anyone would do that, yet, some many of us use our imaginations to imagine the worst and so the energy and feelings create a bad vibe. So if we imagine beauty we are creating such a vibe, we become more attractive to others and ourselves.

This is just a short extract of the METU NETER Vol.1, Pg. 229-230 …

All that strikes us as being “beautiful” – harmoniously juxtaposed forms – in the world is the work of the deity Het Heru. In human life this natural intelligence manifests itself as an artistic expression, social grace, charm, artistic as well as scientific invention, pleasure seeking, etc.

Het Heru has its seat in the gonads. Its Kamitic name is an indication of this fact. Het Heru literally means “house” (het) of Heru. Heru corresponds to those “solar” metabolic phase factors responsible for the virilization and masculinization of the adult male of the species. I.e., the metaphysical forces behind the production of androgen.

In the Yoruba traditions, Heru is Shango, the patron of kings, who wears pants with exaggerated crotches to show that he “out-mans” all other men.

With Het Heru, the emphasis is not on the hot gonadal expression of Heru, but on the cool, peaceful, joyous, refined charming, sexual arousal and seductive behavior that stimulates the production of estrogen and the female reproductive system.

 Concealed from the knowledge of the majority of people is the fact that the sexual arousal is an expression of the arousal of the life force – Ra. In fact, during the earliest times in Kamitic history, Het Heru was considered the principle female counterpart of the “deity” Ra, and therefore the mother of the deities.

Her dominion over the imagination is the rational for this association. The sensations of joy, pleasure (or negative feelings) are expressions of the arousal of the life force, and the images that form the content of the visualization or daydreams (dhyana) are the spiritual moulds (bodies of the deities, and energized thought forms – the “elementals” of European occultism) that guide the physical forces to the realization of their goals.

 In her role as the imaginative faculty she is Nebt-Het, the Lordess of the House. This house, of course, is the spirit. This can be easily understood from the fact that all spiritual must be carried out through the concentration on images in a state of trance. Images + aroused life-force (Ra) + trance (mediumistic or waking) = spiritual realization (mundane or spiritual).

Whoever remembers this formula, observes Maat, follows Tehuti, identifies with Ausar, will achieve all his needs in heaven and on earth.

 In her role as the imagination she is also the “Eye (utchat) of Heru”. That is, the eye of the will, or simply, our ability to visualize what we want to achieve. When the Kamitic texts say that the deities whose bodies are composed of light nourish themselves on the celestial light supplied to them by the Eye of Heru, they are referring to the subtle luminous matter out of which our images are formed.
