Perhaps it is time for a ‘re-birth’ rite to reinvigorate the KIA Egregore in the manner that the original ‘birth rite‘ did back when we started?
Lolita and I came up with the following idea. What we propose is something similar to that, but a little more chaotic. Participants should each create a doll or fetish of some kind to represent the egregore, either as an individual or as a local group if you’re lucky enough to be a part of one. Then when you are ready, anounce this fact on this thread, wait for the next person to be ready, swap postal addresses and each send each other the egregore!
When you receive an egregore, add to it in some way, in ritual and with magical intent like in the original birth rite. Then get ready to swap it again. Eventually you receive your original doll back, or if you don’t you at least have someone elses.
The base for an egregore could be anything. It doesn’t have to be a doll. It could be a wooden fetish or even a robot! Although you probably want it to be fairly cheap to make and not too expensive to post.
When a gathering of kiaists happens, those of us with an egregore can take them with us to the gathering to further ‘charge’ them. At some gatherings additional rebirth rites can be performed where members add to egregores, especially including ones they haven’t previously contributed to.
What do people think, can we make this idea work?
