The symbol that is a part of KeMana is known as a tiet, tyet, tet, tit, tjet, tat, or thet. It means eternal life/resurrection. During ancient Kemetian (Egyptian) times, the goddess Isis/Auset, shed tears over the death of her brother-husband, god Osiris/Ausar. These tears formed into carnelian. She then shaped the crystallized tears into an amulet or the tiet. When Osiris was resurrected, she spoke magical words of protection for him, hence the tiet protects against the influence of bodily harm, misfortune and evil. The tiet is seen throughout the temples of Kemet and is also frequently depicted with the djed pillars, which are symbolic of Osiris' body/backbone (stability/endurance). These two symbols are connected to femininity and masculinity, and allude to the binary nature of life itself.
Going deeper, the tiet is known as the Knot of Isis, the Blood of Isis, the Girdle of Isis, or the Belt of Isis. It is called the Knot of Isis because it resembles the knot the Kemetian gods used to secure their garments. It is further called the Blood of Isis and other names because it represents Isis as the Universal Mother, the woman's womb, menstrual blood and all of its magical properties, and the pad or cloth a woman uses during menstruation. In its entirety, the tiet stands for blood, power and regeneration.
Ke is the first two letters in the name of my beloved mother, warrior, and guide, Queen Kehaulani.
Mana is a traditional word of Polynesian and Melanesian origin. It forms a deep foundation of Hawaiian spirituality, religion and society. It is an esoteric word that means power, respect, authority, responsibility, purity and balance. Mana is a sacred impersonal force that exists in the universe such as humans, animals, plants and inanimate objects. One can be described as having great mana and can manipulate mana by using magic. It is not to be confused with the biblical manna.
"The gods and goddesses of religion and mythology correspond to the archetypal personalities who inhabit our psyches and express themselves as the various forces in our personalities."
