Have any of you ever been visited by a presence that you were sure was the horned god? This happened to me a while back, I woke up for no reason at about two in the morning, and for some reason it was really quiet. (usually there are crickets and what not) Then I could swear that something was walking through my room, even though I couldn't "see" him exactly. I could tell he was male, and that he was more beast than man, in a way. And other than his presence was his scent. It was really heavy in the air, and we don't have words in our language to describe it - at least none that I know. The best way I can explain it was that it was wild. Then the presence just seemed to walk out of my room through my wall and back into the woods. Any thoughts on this?

Baphomet he has to do with fertility and knowledge. Have you and your mate been trying to get preggers? or have you been seeking alot of knowledge at once? I would cast a circle make a pentacle not a pentagram walk backwards casting your circle and ask Baphomet what he was trying to show you. Make a offering on your alter for him. If you are married or have a mate see if your partner will make love on the alter. that can be your offering the beauty of a relationship and fertility and a naked woman. Close your circle by walking forward blow out candles let your insence burn. Thats the only thing I can think of is to ask him directly. No fear he is a fertility God and a diety of the absorption of knowledge. Have you been trying to forget something? with out knowing you its hard to determin what he was trying to show you.

well he wasn't showing me that I'm going to get pregnant, since I'm asexual. It might be something to do with knowledge, I guess I'll have to ask him, like you said. It was amazing having him in the room though. Thanks for the help.

Nods, Like I said god of knowledge and fertility and the fertility could represent something other then a child?

To me, "Horned God" would be Kernunnos/Herne/Kern - Lord of the Animals, the masculine spirit of Nature.

before this turns into a back and forth, the horned god actually represents all of these, there just some of his different names/aspects. That's why I posted under the title "The Horned God" since he has so many different names.

3 years ago i had an experience that matches yours in many ways:


Half a sleep I felt something pulling my hand I were laying in my bed on my back, I don’t know why I woke up, but I became aware that it were quiet and as if time stood still. I immediately closed my eyes to focus on my surrounding and became aware that there were something big floating in front of me and before I could act I were forced around on my back. My arms were forced out and I felt two really strong hands with nails holding me down. At first I tried to resist but I felt his chest on my back and I could hear him breath heavily while I felt his teeth on the back of my head. I stopped resisting and closed my eyes and told myself there is nothing to fear. Then I stated to gather white energy and prayed to Jesus.. Suddenly everything became white around me for two seconds and then I could act freely.
This experience could have been a dream but hours after this episode I still could feel his teeth on the back of my head and his strong hands around me wrist.


I learned many things by experiencing this and I for that I am grateful


Yours

The Baphomet is not a true pre-Christian deity. He was created by occultist's of the Victorian and Romantic periods and used stereotypical devil/pagan god imagery, and used the name as a throw back to the supposed pagan god worshiped by the Templer Knights when the King of France decided to paint them as heretics to remove them from power.

horned god predates christianity
Horned gods predate Christianity, but not an all encompassing God of nature who is horned. The Duotheistic Horned God of Wiccan theology is a mostly modern invention.

You may very well be right, I just thought it was an amazing experience and wanted to share it. :)

It's interesting that we had similar experiences, though it my case he didn't touch me, and thanks for sharing with me! :D Though I was talking about the aspects of the horned god that Norseman listed on the first page, perhaps that's why our experiences were different.

Our experiences were different, because we had different things to learn by the experience. It took me some time to understand what I had to learn from this.


Well I felt that it could be great for you to know that others were having experiences just like you.



Before I wander off / I hope that you see this experience as a blessing, something special, because thatís what you are :O)


Prayers of peace and love from me to you

Of course, to be visited by the horned god is definitely special, and thank you, I was hoping someone else might have experienced something similar. Thank you, love and light always. :)

yeah but when Anton Levay used it in the Satanic Church it opened a can of worms most christians see Baphomet and see the devil. thats why I brought it up incase someone stubled in and said Horned God is the Devil you would be suprised how many people think he is.

I've seen him before..but only in an odd dream.

It started with me standing barefoot in a snowy forest and I could see all these "pilgrim" looking people walk towards a small wooden house. I went inside and saw him, sitting on an alter and carving soap. He had a curiously friendly demeanor, but at the time I deeply involved with Christianity. So I panicked and woke myself up instantly. But always wondered why he didn't hurt me or even seem threatening. Considering that he wasn't the devil at all shows that dream in a whole new light. : )

Yes he predates Christianity he was even worshipped by the Egyptians Khnum.
Other names is
Cernunnos, The Celtic God of fertility, animals and the underworld.
Herne The Hunter, a specter of Britain.
Pan the Greek god of the woodlands,
Janus the Roman god of good beings.
Tammuz and Damuzi, the son, lover and consorts to Ishtar and Inanna.
Osiris, the Egyptian Lord of the underworld.
Dionysus, the Greek god of vegetation and vine.
The Green Man, the lord of vegetation and the woodlands.
Baphomet God of fertility and renewal.
and Norseman is correct his image is something different to everyone. But Horned God is still predating Christianity.

Hi Occultist :hug2:
I would tend to take out The Green Man from the list.

Kernunnos/Herne etc - the masculine spirit of wild nature
The Green Man - the vegetation spirit of primal nature

"Horned" figures have been found in neolithic cave paintings making this god one of the earliest and so longest-lasting. :smile:

I agree Norse although some people I know think there interchangable.
I do not and 100% agree but there are some who think he is nature like Jack of the Green, I have even seen some art work where the Greenman has horns but the leaf face also. Thank you again my sweet friend Norse for pointing these out to me. /hugs

Concerning "Pan", and, the depictions and images of, "The Dragon", as well as "The Serpent", as in The Garden" involving scripture...

Consider an inate situation in evolved humanity, and this organic human nature:

However, all evidence from various direction indicates that we are more and other than, "This".

Again I do not see them as the same entity but many do.
