Tsulsala

Tsulsala, Queen of Hunger, Wolf Mother, Lady on the Iron Throne of Kur.

Tsulsala or Wolf Mother is my personal name for the Dark Goddess, a Personalized Vision of Kali, Ereshkigal, but perhaps closest of all to Hekate.

If you search for Tsulsala online, you will likely find little enough1, as you see For the past 10-15 years, I have written a long series of stories set in the world of Mura; these stories often involve The Goddess Tsulsala, being a great power and the great terror in that world; so in a mundane sense she is my creation.

Someplace along the way she became something more than a fictional Character; I have always felt there was a channeled element to my stories, my fiction has always informed my spiritual path, and my spiritual path my fiction; my stories are not simply fiction to me, but a exercise in path working as well; and in that way I have somehow made a connection with she I call Wolf Mother.

A few years ago now, I gifted my dear friend Tracy with a Picture of Hekate, by Jessica Galbreth; with a Prayer to Tsulsala slipped into the back of that Picture; a day or two later I stopped by Tracy's and was saying that I had just started a new Tsulsala story, when her student who was listening to our conversation's jaw dropped. That she was clearly, and genuinely stunned was obvious in the moment; and a few minutes later I came to find out that Tracy had left my gift in her mediation room, and that night before while engaged in a mediation exercise her three students had all encountered Tsulsala.

One had felt her touch, another had seen a woman Dark and Richly, (Royally) Dressed; the third had heard her Whisper, "Tsulsala-Ki". Tracy told me, and I believe her none of them had seen the prayer on the back of the Galbreth, and so none should have known that name. To that point Tsuslala's "Full" name, her Craft, or power name if you will had never been mentioned in the fiction.

There have been two other occasions since were persons have encountered Tsulsala quite outside my fiction; and it's influence. So for me Tsulsala is every bit as real as say, Hekate, or Ereshkigal; whom I believe she is a vision or aspect of given my close relationship to the Goddess Innana.

Whether Tsulsala can be best described as a Thought Form, an Eregore, or as I suspect, a more ancient vessel holding a darker wine; I do not honestly know just now. I can only say for sure, I have no real doubt she has an existance that quite transcends the printed page at this point.

You dear reader have of course no reason to believe a word of this, and every reason to believe that I'm quite nuts, NP really. One should always be reasonably skeptical about reports of gnotic experiances. I can only say, that this report is wholly and to the best of my knowledge true.

So when you see me mention Tsulsala in group, feel free if you like to Read in, Hekate, or Ereshkigal, or any other name of the Dark Goddess you like; for like the Hero with 10,000 faces; all are names and faces of the self same Scopionic power. My Favorite Tsulsala Story, A Dancer and a Dance best conveys that Scorpionic power.

Members reading this might, just might; wish to Invoke, Evoke Tsulsala for themselves, just to see if she Answers, just to see I'm not nuts. I would advise first reading some of the fiction linked above, A Daughter of Kur, A Dancer and a Dance; and Tsulsala's Song to get some sense of the Deity/Entity your thinking about Invoking. Tsulsala is not creature in the image of the Twilight Vampire, no she is much more Ancient than that, and much more Predatory; she is a creature in the Darkest Traditions of the Ancient Vampire Legends; behind her mask of wry humor, and dark civility burns a ravenous hunger; and I view her as a Dangerious, and powerful Ally.

If you chose to venture some path working involving this Deity, I can only offer these prayers, as representatives of the prayers I have used over the years when path working with Tsulsala. Blessings, BB.
