Rituals and such
When and how do you honour Lilith? Do you have a specific ritual, based on Neo-Pagan styles or drawing upon ancient texts?
Also, the ever curious seeker in me is wondering... How do you experience Her? What is She "like" in your opinion?
|Friday, February 22nd, 2008|
Hello to all! I've been studying the Lilith myth since I was about 12 (well okay at that point I was just fascinated by Her the research became my obsession later on). I am now 25. I consider myself a highly spiritual person but I don't really want to call myself a Pagan or a Wiccan, all I know is that in times of need I have drawn on the spirit of Lilith. Whether I care to call her an entity unto herself, a cultural archtype or a primordial energy within myself depends on the mood I am in and how inclined I am to logic or sheer madness that day. Anyways, long story short, I love what she represents both for historical, feminist and personal reasons. I have a few poems (some spanning back 10 years) that I have written over the years and finally decided to type out properly. Feel free to check them out on my page. Cheers and thank you for having me here :-)

I'm new here, figured I'd introduce myself.
I've been calling to Lilith for about 2 years now, and use her as an energy of empowerment when I know I'm becoming weak. She's probably the most influencial of the energies I call to, other than Satan.
Anyway, I've been a 24/7 slave in a M/s relationship for about 3 years now, and that's what my journal is about. Yes, I know. "You call to Lilith, yet you submit?" Well, submission is a form of empowerment. If you'd like to add me, feel free as long as your birthdate is on your profile.
Peace & Love

Sotheby's auctions ancient Mesopotamian sculpture for $57 million
Wed Dec 5, 2007 5:11pm EST
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sotheby's auctioned a tiny, ancient Mesopotamian sculpture for $57 million on Wednesday, a record sum for any sculpture or antiquity sold at auction.
The Guennol Lioness is a 3.25-inch (8.3-cm) tall white limestone figure created 5,000 years ago in Mesopotamia -- the cradle of civilization between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers mostly in modern Iraq and Iran. The sculpture is considered one of the last known masterworks from its era in private hands, the auction house said.
The buyer's identity was not revealed.
The price of $57.16 million topped the previous record of $29.16 million for a sculpture sold at auction that was held by Picasso's "Tete de femme (Dora Maar)" which went for $29.16 million in November, Sotheby's said.
The previous record for an antiquity was $28.6 million for a 2,000-year-old Roman bronze sold in June.
The Guennol Lioness was put up for sale by a trust established by the collectors Alastair Bradley Martin and his wife Edith, who acquired the piece in 1948. The proceeds were to benefit a charitable trust, Sotheby's said.
"The successful bidder ... will have the distinction of owning one of the oldest, rarest and most beautiful works of art from the ancient world," Richard Keresey, head of Sotheby's antiquities department, said in a news release ahead of the auction.

Hi all, this is my virgin post. I have a question, how many of you see Lilith as the Dark Mother of Wild things? Has anyone every come across her in this aspect?

Hey there...quiet room for months and months!
Thought I'd wave around a pendant that I created, just for the sheer joy of it. :) It's actually been sold, but I'll be making another since the original one was flawed anyway.Lilith PendantClick on the picture for more details, including a picture of the back.
On the front it has a picture of Lilith with the Serpent from a famous painting by Luis Falero, and on the back it has a quote from the Bible (sometimes "Lilith" in this quote is replaced by "screech owl" or "the lilit", but I like this translation better!)

The Goddess of the Israelites
If this author has truly found a matriarchal ancient society, that would really be something. Despite popular rumor, there really weren't any true matriarchies "back in the day." There were societies with matriarchal elements, but no TRUE matriarchies, anthropologically speaking. Merlin Stone published a book called When God Was a Woman commonly used to support that theory but her scholarship has been disproven, and Gimbautas has also come under fire for drawing conclusions not based on evidence in the actual archaeological record.
This is an interesting article though. I did see this book in a bookstore, but when I read the title, I thought "Yeah I'll buy that book and then the answer will be NO, so why pay for a whole book to tell me that, right?!?!"The Goddess of the IsraelitesColin Bower

Out of curiosity, are there any holidays related to Lilith, or does one have to "invent" their own in order to do a little special celebration in Her honour? If so, are there any historical dates that may be "extra special" to Her?
Thanks in advance! Current Mood: contemplative

--Important Opinion Poll--
This Thursday, I am 99.999% sure I will be taking leave from work to attend the next Interfaith Alliance
press conference panel being held in Washington, DC.
May I request some opinions of the Pagans, Witches, Wiccans, as well as Taoists, Buddhists, Sufis, and progressive Christians and Jews...
regarding Religion in America
Some Questions to ponder:
1) When you consider America's religious history, what are some concerns or ideas that come to mind?
2) When you consider America's current, contemporary religious situation, what comes to mind?
3) When you dream of America's religious future, what does it look like?
4) What are your thoughts about policy and religion? How should they intertwine in our society?
vague and broad questions, but just a start...
discussion welcome and encouraged.
