Sekhmet Warrior Goddess of Egypt

Sekhmet Warrior Goddess of Egypt-
Sekhmet Warrior Goddess
of Egypt
For todays' post I bring you the Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet, she is the Lioness-headed Goddess fiercest hunter of Egypt. Her name comes from the word Sekhem (Power), and her name means; 'The One Who is Powerful'. In Egyptian Mythology, Sekhmet was originally the warrior goddess as well as the Goddess of healing for Upper Egyptians. She was depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It was also said that her breath formed the desert of Egypt and she was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them into warfare. As the Protector of the Pharaohs in Egypt their faith
in the Goddess was show by two Pharaohs;  Ramesses II, who took her as symbol of his power, and Amenhotep III, who built over 600 statues of the Goddess to use on a ritual. So you could say that she was a very powerful Goddess and in my opinion she was probably the God Ra daughter...
 Some of the titles that the Goddess were given to her that I found were: 
Lady of Life; Lady of Pestilence; Lady of Slaughter; Lady of Terror; Mistress of Dread; One Before Whom Evil Temples; Red Lady and Finally She who Mauls...
There's been some variation on who might be her original 
parents or even how she came to exist.  Some believed that the Goddess Sekhmet was the daughter of the Sun God Ra. - For this the Goddess was consider an Solar Deity. Others thought she might be the daughter of Nut, the Sky and Geb, the earth mother of Nefertum. So you see in every culture and Mythology around the world there are different believes too. As I've mentioned earlier in this post the Egyptian Goddess was usually represented as a woman with the head of a lioness, dressed in red, sometimes with a Rosetta pattern located in her breast, however sometimes she is a naked woman who wears the Solar Disk and Uraeus, which associates her with Wadjet. The Goddess Sekhmet is the Egyptian of the sun,war,destruction,plagues and healing. She is also one of the oldest deities and one of the most powerful Goddess of Egypt.

Sekhmet was also said to be a member of the cult Memphite with her husband Ptah, the God of creation & wisdom plus son of Nefertum, the God of sunrise. And with she being said to be the daughter of the sun god Ra - created when his eye looked upon the earth below. She is also seen sometimes as the daughter of Nut, the Sky god and Geb, the Earth. 
As the Goddess of Egypt she is depicted in many different ways. As many time seen waring the head of a lioness or the sun disc circled by a cobra on her head. She could be either dressed in what say often a red dress or naked, holding the ankh - the symbol of life when she happens to be seated at her throne. The Goddess as I have said earlier was consider a warrior and a healing for Egypt, in which she was the Patron of all Physicians and healers too. Her priestess were considered very skilled healers at the time. The Goddess Sekhmet would protect her healing powers and their aspects about them. It seems that she could bring about disease and plague to those who wrong her as the Lady of Pestilence, and she was also the master of the art of medicine as she would provide the cures to various ailments she may have brought to humans. She was the patron Goddess of all healers and physicians and her priests were known to be very skilled doctors as in some results very gruesome too. I discovered that the Goddess was even mentioned in numerous times in various spells in the Book of the Dead as both a creative and vicious force. However, it seems that the Goddess is mostly known as the protector of balance or justice - meaning 'One Who Loves Man and Who Detests Evil.' 
Also the Goddess would be invoked to fight against the 'demons' of any type of plague or disease that would come thru Egypt. However, some people believed she could send these demons against her enemies too. So in fact she was a very powerful Goddess. As much as she would protect the people of Egypt she also represented the power of heat in

of the Egyptian Goddess
Egypt, which explains why she was also known as Nester and the Flame too. The Egyptians in Ancient times actually believed that she created the entree desert with one breathe of hers.

There weren't that many myths written about her, however I did find a few. I did discover that the Goddess Sekhmet was in a partnership with a God Hathor. In which she took to the very dark side of her enter self. During this War/Battle of Kadesh the Goddess appeared on the battle field on a horse, that wasn't all to this tale and her Dark Side. She set all the bodies of the enemies soldiers into flames... That was the end of that Battle of Kadesh in Egypt. 
It seems that there was even a time when the Goddess 
Sekhmet got a request from her father God of Ra. This was when Ra was very unhappy with mankind in Egypt for ignoring all the Gods of Egypt, so he sent for his daughter the Lioness-headed Goddess - Sekhmet as a 
Weapon of vengeance against the humans - So she became 'the 'Eye of Ra'. So it was said that the Goddess Sekhmet did her father request or vengeance against All! humans. She started the slaughter by killing all the men, then the women and finally all the children and even the very young too! Her thirst for blood had no limits and it was said that she had almost extincted all
Goddess Taking Revenge on
the Human race on the request
of her Father God Ra
of mankind. It seems that her raft of vengeance went deeper within the Goddess, than all the Gods and Goddess of Egypt thought. However, what do they expect she was the daughter of the God Ra! Anyway to stop her, they all came up with a plan by flooding a field with Khakadi which is a mixer of beer and 
pomegranate that 
dye that looked like blood. Well, they must of known the Goddess well, because it worked very well. The Goddess came down from the heavens and gorged herself, to a point that she got so drunk she passed out. The first thing the Goddess saw when she awaken was Ptah, which she fell in love with almost instantly. It seems from this union the God child Nefertum was born and Ma'art was re established. After this the Goddess was consider part of the Triad of Memphis along with her dear husband Ptah and son Nefertem.
After the Gods had saved the people of Egypt from both the Goddess Sekhmet and her father God Ra for taking revenge on the humans. There was a festival to celebrate the Goddess at the beginning of each year known as the Intoxication Festival. During the Festival, the people would drink in excess of wine that was stained with pomegranates and get drunk, just like the Goddess Sekhmet did centuries ago, as they worship Sekhmet. 'The Mistress and Lady of the Tomb', The Gracious One', 'The Destroyer of Rebellion', and finally 'The Mighty One of Enchantments.' Knowing that it was the other Egyptian Gods that stop her from destroyed all of mankind. I found this Goddess to be very interesting. As I do ever Goddess
I do when I venture off to different Cultures and Country's too. I hope that you
