The Goddess in a Hellenic Song

, 15:26

20 years ago, a Hellenic singer, Alkestis Protopsalte, published a song and a video clip. Her real name is Alkestis Sevaste Attikiouzel. She was born in Alexandreia of Egypt and moved to Athens due to political events. She was a runner and after that she became a singer. She had a great success. Her contribution is so recognized that she even became a minister of culture for a month in 2015. Both the song we are going to see and the video have strong influences and symbolism of our Goddess Hekate. It is not quite possible that she or the production team had something like that in mind. But the result is a song aligned with Hekate. I have think of it many times. How the Goddess can interfere in our daily lives and pass a message massively without having the concious mind in the route, to understand Her actions. In this article, I am going to share my thoughs with you, regardings a special song, called "lava".

The Mindhack Project Attacks Hekate - Our Answer

, 00:46

The Mindhack Project is a greek website which has articles about the following subjects: occultism, conspirancies, weird news. They write about occultism, or they think they do. The slogan of the webiste is "break the binds of mind". We will see about that. It is constituted by a group of 14 writers. At 13th of June 2016 they started an attack against our Mother Goddess Hekate, her devotees and the truth. Though we both (Eirini and I) asked them to make the appropriate corrections or at least show us their sources that they invoke (but do not write), they didn't respond back. So, as I promised to them, I am going to inform the community of what they write against our Goddess and what is the truth. We really didn't understand why they chose not to answer to our simple request...

Poem: The Roads of Athens

, 15:11

Glory, Honor and Wingless Nike, have from years fled,
they walk around the Athenian roads pretending to be dead.
They abandoned the gracious Acropolis since the old days,
what these Goddesses can give, today nobody takes.
The temple of Pallada is no longer their house,
they live on roads now, forgotten by the crowds.

On the crossroads I have always stood and everything I see,
I left the Acropolis as well; it is our nature to be free.
Cannons hit the temple, anger, fires and loot,
the injuries, visible today, the temple make impure.
When the Parthenon was hit by Morosini’s shot,
I heard Athena shouting that her temple will be lost.
So that Athena doesn’t see, with my veil I covered her blue eyes,
forever the temple I left, not to light the broken pieces and the piles.

Sit quietly and hear these Goddesses of light,
our footsteps and our whispers today are heard during the night.
Hear carefully my child and try to understand,
the four of us today are still living on this land.
We are trying to shine again, waiting to be seen,
people pass along us and our signs cannot see.
And if ever these Goddesses you want to honor and our blessings to receive,
on the roads of Athens your offerings should leave.
