The phrase/word: stinging reality
She is the Scorpion Goddess
Sent to protect from all the venomous creatures
A stinging reality
She had the power of magic
Her priests being in either magic or medicine for ancient cultures
And with different intent she could also destroy any wrong doing victims
at will with her own venomous wrath
Her motive was to give those justifiably dead the ability to enter the after life
Her name is Serqet and she was an Egyptian deity.
Renowned for her abilities to stiffen the throats of people
Like that of a scorpion bite.
She also had protective qualities
These were sought out by pregnant mothers and children
For protection from venomous bites.
Her notoriety as
The Egyptian Goddess of Scorpions and Venomous creatures
Was left in evidence in the tomb of Nefetari
Where she is depicted speaking to Nefetari in an inscription
Serqets cult spread across the delta and she became the healer of the venom
inflicted and also the giver of the venom.
In ancient Egypt Serqet was the Stinging Reality for the people
Who idolised her..
