Kay’tee was born between 25th and 29th of March 2012. Naming ceremony took place on 2nd April 2012 in the morning after which she began her travel.
She was created for the The Egregore Project. She originated as Uneeda sailor troll doll I bought on ebay for my yellow-sun troll. When troll arrived it turned out to be much bigger than I expected. I decided not use it for its original purpose and kept it. The Kia egregore project inspired me to transform this troll into Kay’tee.
I decided to paint her gold and give her my personal accessories for hair- green plats made of hair extension, rings of hair ties and back of her head decorated with my hair pin. I also gave her my own earrings to wear and old runic talisman I used to wear in the past. I decided to paint her face and toe nails leaving the rest of the body to imagination and talents of other Kia members.
Below you can watch short video of this process and see Kay’tee setting off for her adventure as she’s being passed on to Trace.
Kay’tee was named so by Lionel on Monday morning before she set off to Essex in the UK. The idea came from shortening “KIA Troll” to KT.
My own impression of Kay’tee is that she loves parties, drugs, music and adventure. She likes starring at the night sky in search for flying saucers, visit the hidden corners of human conscious, plant seeds in our imagination, play innocent tricks on us and chill with a joint and exotic cocktail. She seems to be sociable and outgoing (at least as for a troll!). Being outspoken and brave she can handle Kia’s Public Relations in the spirit realm and aid creativity.
Kay’tee being a group egregore doll will travel and visit different Kia members who will help her grow and mature. I decided that she can only be passed on to someone else in person. This could happen during summer retreat or other unofficial Kia meetings.
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.
In 2009 I gave the old KIA doll from the Norwich group a makeover. After being passed around the membership of the Norwich group she unanimously ended up in my care when the group dissolved. I had been working with her as my personal link to the group egregore for a number of years, but in 2009 began to feel that the look of the old doll no longer represented well what KIA had become.
Lolita Perdurabo and I began working together more closely on a magical level and felt it was time to give the doll a makeover. I began by giving her a new paint job, and Lolita contributed more gold paint patterns to the arms and legs, and more recently donated a bow to KIA for her to wear in her hair. For KIA’s 11th birthday Lolita also made her a new necklace from some sea shells.
