Title: Heru-sa-Aset's Greatness
Post by: Tai'awepwawet on December 02, 2009, 08:55:26 pm
When it comes to the two most famous and more commonly divined Herus, we all know who'd win a popularity contest. I suspect he knows it too :P Heru-Wer's manly and war-like and kick-ass and we love him.

It's too easy to think of Heru-sa-Aset as his little cousin. To forget about him in the shadow of the raucous party guy. And when we associate Heru-Wer with the kingly ka, it's even easy to forget that aspect of Heru-sa-Aset's life.


No longer! This thread is about Heru-sa-Aset! In all his glory! So come, one and all, post anything you like about Heru the saviour of his father! Pictures, experiences, poems, songs, hymns, rituals! Have fun! :D Go to your shrines and make offerings if you like, rattle on sistra and bang on drums, and generally celebrate how powerful and great Heru-sa-Aset is :)

Dua Heru-sa-Aset, Nekhtet!

Excellent topic (biased? moi?)

Here one of my favorite spells from the coffin texts (148)

"I am Horus, the great Falcon upon the ramparts of the house of him of the hidden name. My flight has reached the horizon. I have passed by the gods of Nut. I have gone further than the gods of old. Even the most ancient bird could not equal my very first flight. I have removed my place beyond the powers of Set, the foe of my father Osiris. No other god could do what I have done. I have brought the ways of eternity to the twilight of the morning. I am unique in my flight. My wrath will be turned against the enemy of my father Osiris and I will put him beneath my feet in my name of 'Red Cloak'."

In my experience He is not that fond of sistra. When I was pondering if I should get one He said: "What do you want with that noisy thing?"

Much as I love Him, I would never deny that you are the biggest Daddy's Girl     :D

I can't think of anything constructive to add at the moment (just Yay, Dad!) except that He seems to like coffee. I don't drink it myself, but I always offer Him coffee cake and I have a coffee-scented candle for Him. He likes chocolate cake, too. I tried to offer some to someOne else once, and got a very firm "No, cake is MINE"     :cool:

The sense I get from Him (I don't know if it has any affect on me as He's my beloved) is He's the Hyper Heru. He's not just younger in name. As I've said before, He reminds me of a soldier, of someone in their 20s. It's not a bad thing, and He can definitly get down to business when necissary, but that's just how I get Him :)

Me neither.  The only thing I know about Heru-sa-Aset is what Heru-wer calls Him.  ;)

Though He did answer a fedw question for me once during an online dua almost 2 years ago.  I asked Him if my upcoming job would satisfy my goals and He said, "Probably not."  Boy, was He ever right about that.  :)

I just want to say that I thank Heru-sa-Aset for giving me courage and bravery, and helping me say what needs to be said sometimes, like he told me he would help me do. I also would like to thank Heru-sa-Aset for leading me to the House of Netjer, and even though he's stepped away from me a little bit since then, I thank him all the same.

Em hotep Naisenu *henu*,

I never got Heru-Sa-Aset as child. Never.
There has been a time when I got Him as the young fierce warrior but now I am mostly getting Him in His role as King.

When I was first divined I got Him as a young man, laid back and friendly but partially hidden behind a sort of blue mist. There was a feeling there that He was the King, but that for the moment He was just getting to know me as a Father. After I met Tanebet in London it was like a new channel had opened up, and I started getting Him as very kingly. In this form He is a falcon wearing the double crown, shining brightly and with a feeling of directness and intensity.

At other times, when I reach out to my Parents for reassurance or just to check They're there, I have a more general sense of Hethert as a warm glow and Heru-sa-Aset as a powerful blade. Either way, He always feels very intense and focussed to me.   :)

Post by: Sobekemiti on December 04, 2009, 12:11:18 pm
I don't really know Heru-sa that well, apart from the fact He's very close to my Daddy to the point where They don't like Their icons being separated. The morning greeting I say to Sobek every morning associates Him with Ra and Heru, which I did not notice at the time as I found it two years before my RPD and the connection between Sobek and Heru was not exactly something I was looking for at the time.

The few times I've felt Him around, He's been... quiet. Mostly, I just remember brown wings. Protective brown wings. You know that type of statuary where Him in hawk/falcon form is behind the Nisut's head, wrapping His wings around his head? That's the image I mostly get of Heru-sa, of Him behind my head like that.

Post by: Tai'awepwawet on December 04, 2009, 12:30:48 pm
Hmm, what does Heru-sa-Aset call Heru-Wer... I wonder when there'll next be a Saq to ask this? ;)


Tomorrow is day 1 of the Feast of Coronation. It celebrates Wesir coming to the throne of Amenti, but also Heru-sa-Aset becoming king of the Two Lands! I will be offering some chocolate and perhaps a tipple of some sort ;)


I am getting supremely nudged to make a small shrine  for Heru-sa-Aset. I have this statue (http://www.egyptianmarketplace.com/horus/horus-falcon-statue/prod_671.html) that I was hoping to use for him, but it seems to have been firmly claimed by Heru-Wer at the moment. What other statues do people use for him?

Really? I've always felt he was more of a wild guy in his twenties. Whenever I'm running around outside I feel like he's running with me going, "Can't ya go faster?" Also, when ever I see a hawk flying around the sun I get a very, "Yo what's up?" feeling. He seems almost modern to me in his mannerisms.   :grin:

@Ravyn, I get enough of the playful side from Sobek, actually. Sobek's not that serious with me. Heru-sa, on the other hand, is more of a warrior, at least to me. I think He's balancing Sobek out, since the two of Them are so close (at least for me).

Within a year of my divination, Heru-sa-Aset completely turned my world around! All the inner strength and self-respect I felt I had lost were returned to me, and tripled! He has helped me through a LOT, and I am thankful to him for all he has done in my life!

Post by: Aves on March 03, 2010, 06:07:32 am
The feeling I get from Heru sa aset is that he wants me to feel confident and love myself for who I am.
I must admit I have low self esteem so I often wonder if he started to connect to me to help me be stronger...thats the impresion i get from him anyway. He enjoys life and wants everyone else to enjoy it too!

Hotep Everyone!

For my image of Heru-Sa-Aset I use the full falcon form wearing the Double Crown. It is my favorite image of him. I also do not get a young child or a playful Netjer, but rather a quiet, strong mature Prince of command and responsability.

Wasi will laugh at the titles I've come up for him that has become a small joke I don't think he dislikes..LoL

Also with chocolate, I agree he has an obsession. I cannot bring chocolate into the room without him having some most adamently!

Well, this is an old topic, but i just thought I'd bring it back up.
I've noticed that not many people work with him. Honestly, it makes me kinda sad....OK, maybe just a smidg upset 'cause I think he's the best. i could be biased, though. :)

In my experiences with him, he is the playful child, the passionate warrior, the healer, the loyal friend, the teacher, and so much more.
Yes, I think he definitely likes chocolate, milk more than dark from my experiences, and coffee apparently is a hit, too.

And in honour of His birthday:

The words of Heru ward off death and they restore to life the one with an oppressed throat.
The words of Heru renew life and make lasting the years of the one who invokes him.
The words of Heru extinguish the fire, his oral powers heal a poisonous disease.
The words of Heru mean saving a man whose fate stands behind him
The magic of Heru wards off bows and makes arrows miss the mark.
The magic of Heru dispels wrath in the heart and soothes
The magic of Heru cures one’s disease.
The magic of Heru soothes the powerful fire and saves from evil disease

Heru Sa Aset is pretty easy going when it comes to offerings. He never asked me for flowers but that does not mean thst he wouldn't accept them. The only thing I sense is that they shouldn't be too girly. When in doubt: just ask Him!

In the beginners' class, we've discussed Heru-sa-Aset being a film fan. This is my first interaction with him. Hoping to get to know him properly in the near future!

Dua Heru-Sa-Aset

Enter in peace,
leave in peace,
go in happyness.
For life is in His hand,
peace is in His grasp,
all good things are with Him.
There is food for him who remains at His table,
and nourishment for him who partakes of His offerings.
No misfortune or evil will befall the one who lives on His beneficence,
neither is there damnation for the one who serves Him
for His care reaches to heaven
and His security to earth
and His protection is greater than that of all the gods.

He has always been there to provide courage and hope for me, and He lights the darkness that clouds my way! I am so grateful to know Him, as He has helped me grow so much and has been so kind to me!

Dua Heru-sa-Aset!

As tomorrow is Wep Ronpet and the start of His year, I re-read this thread to get ideas of what to buy Him. Methinks chocolate and chocolate flavored (or coffee flavored? hmm, anyone else get this?) alcohol would be appreciated.

I'm going to be remaking my general altar into a space for heka, tools that I do not use with my shrine, etc. I'm thinking that the space which is eye level with me should go to Heru-sa-Aset.

-nods- That sounds good. I think he likes sweet alcohol, but not too strong. (Don't tell Heru-wer or he'll never live down liking "girly" drinks.) The sweet is a nod to his child side, and the not too strong is a nod towards how getting too drunk is not such a great idea.

This year belongs to Heru-Sa-Aset the King. Not Heru-Sa-Aset the Child. This year will be about strength, victory and justice. Heru will not accept any drama or injustice and this year will be a great one for you as long as you remember this.

Spoiled brat child, no. More like the Zen beginner's mind child who is open to new experience. His justice is tempered with the knowledge that "I was young once too." Part of his strength is a love of life and the knowledge of rejuvenation. But yes, he will still knock you on your butt if you even think of hurting any of his people. All work and no play makes a king into a tyrant.

I know I'm sort of monopolizing the thread, but I have this fear that if people only see the bight and the shiny and the serious that some may have a harder time connecting with Him. I feel this need to tell a left-eyed story about Heru-sa-Aset and possibly give a different perspective on what victory and power might mean.

The first time I met Heru, he was down on his knees and broken, crying over the loss of Kemet. "Brought down by the arrogance of the people," he said. It was his purpose to care for the kingdom, and then it was gone.

I've been working on this problem for nineteen years, half of my life. I tried ignoring the image for awhile, but it always came back around. To find true healing, you can't simply discard those pieces that are damaged or not as shiny. You have to gather all of them together with love. This includes the scorpion stings and the lapses in judgement, because those are part of what made you. You must purify them, and yourself, in the process. It is long and painful work. Looking to the simple, harmless, pleasures in life helps. Joking around is part of the therapy. Honoring your family and letting them help you is also important.

Now the image has changed. I see him on his feet again, ready to move forward, ready to fight if he has to. This is what victory and power means to me. This is definitely our year.

Seeing your king on the floor would be discouraging to most people. He doesn't usually want to show that side. He didn't want to show me. Sekhmet ratted him out. But I think those who also struggle may be encouraged by this story. Don't give up. Hopefully it won't take you quite so many years to accomplish, but if it does, it does. There's nothing better to do.

I am not exactly sure that I know what you mean with right-eyed and left-eyed child of Heru, but Heru talked about the need of balance. This year of strength, power and victory will come with its own challenges. We need to remember that we can be proud but not arrogant, there has to be justice, but compassion too.

You associate primarily with the king. I primarily associate with everything else, though I am starting to come around and seek out that balance. Integration of all the parts, as in restoring the Eye, has been a big thing with me. I know it's a different Heru, but they're all related and I see the patterns replay themselves in different ways with each retelling. Insisting that the Child is excluded from the year's celebrations rubbed me the wrong way because he is part of the whole.

Basically, soft spot, ow, you found it.

Heru made it clear Himself that we are dealing with Heru, the king, this year.
This doesn't really mean "that anyone insisted that Heru, the child should be excluded", we are just forwarding the message we got from Him, not more, not less. I am sorry, that it rubs you the wrong way.

Post by: Shezep_shuty on August 06, 2013, 02:28:06 pm
Focusing on the King is not a problem.

Deliberately saying "Not Heru-Sa-Aset the Child." Is a problem. That sounds exactly like exclusion. Exclusion was pretty much the number one issue in the Child's life, minus the guy who wanted to kill him. I'm not saying we should celebrate exclusion, but I am saying we should not repeat it. If there was no Child there would be no King. His life experiences made him what he is.

Post by: Tanebet on August 06, 2013, 02:52:13 pm
That was never my intention, I just pointed out to which special form of Heru this year belongs. It was HIS decision to come as Heru the King this year, the one who brings order and peace.
Personally I am going to honour the manifestation He chose for His year and does not mean by any means that I am going to ignore His other forms. I honour all His forms, but if He wants me to look especially at Heru, the King then I will exactly do that becase He had a reason for chosing that form.

I think focus is a more appropriate term than exclude here. As I understand it he wants us to focus on certain of his aspects, probably because we're going to particularly need that guidance and support this year.
Title: Re: Heru-sa-Aset's Greatness
Post by: Sehedjef on August 07, 2013, 03:09:42 pm
Hotep!  *henu*

Focus would be an excellent term to use.  Heru-sa-Aset's message was about responsability (both ours as members of the community, and His as a ruler of Kemet).  He spoke about the honor and privalage we have being a part of this community, the duty we have to support each other, and the responsability to not be arrogant in what we do and how we go about doing it.  He spoke to us as a king to His people concerning what He expects from us, and what we can expect from Him.

It was basically a combination pep talk and warning.  One of those "you are capable of greatness, if you do your duty I will be there to magnify your efforts; if you don't do your duty I will be there to hold you accountable;  either way I will be there" type conversations.

Please don't take the above message the wrong way.  This is ment to be a good year with lots of good things in store for us (as long as we do what we are supposed to do).  Heru-sa-Aset didn't come as a dictator this year, but as a responsable king.  He'd like to guide us to be a better and stronger community capable of great things, but He will not tolerate those who intentionally cause problems or fail to do what is expected of them.

If that means we need help, then we ask for it rather than suffer in silence.  If we see a member of our community in need or alone (alone not by choice, but by neglect or indifference)then we do something about it. If we don't, He WILL hold us accountable.

My hope is that we rise to the occasion and are stronger for it.  We did this at retreat this year, and it was one of the best we've ever had if not the best based on what we accomplished together, and without drama that we've seen in previous years.  We had 3 folks who had never been to retreat before, and by the end of the first day you'd have never known it as we pulled togother as a community to make sure they didn't feel like they were new or not part of the club (easy to do when everyone else attending has known each other for seveal years and spends time catching up on events over the previous year and renewing friendships rather than making sure those who are attending for the first time aren't ignored (even unintentionally) ).

We are a great group of folks, capable of great things if we remember that.  This is a year where Heru-sa-Aset won't let us forget that fact.

Senebty,
Imti

No worries.  ^_^  It can be easy to miss or not get the subtext to events when you aren't there in person.  I don't think anyone took your meaning the wrong way, and you did raise good points, it's just He was very direct about why He was presiding over the year, and getting blindsided at the end of the year due to missing that wouldn't be any fun.  ^_^

Wow, the image of Heru weeping on his knees is very powerful. I'm not sure if I'd be alone in this one, but it makes me respect him more. I don't trust a leader who refuses/can't show a little vulnerability from time to time. I know some who feel he's distant, but I find him to be one of the most involved gods I've worked with thus far.

Thanks for sharing. :)

I made contact with Heru-sa-aset briefly this past summer, and he was one of the few netjeru that have ever mentally "spoken" to me in normal speech/words, and quite colloquially at that, it kind of threw me off, haha.  Usually I get emotions, images, stream-of-consciousness impressions, very subtle ways of communicating.  Not so Heru-sa-aset.  

Since it was announced here that this was his year and I'd never spent time with him, I took a few to try to reach out.  This can be a little hard to do "cold", so I thought a little bit about other mythological figures I was a tad more familiar with that could be used as a point of reference.  I had spent some minor time playing in the Arthurian legends (hence the screen name for a fairly damaged seeker,) and trotted out Sir Gawain for a comparison. Very much a solar hero, strength triples with the sun, young warrior type more active than King Arthur, his active second-in-command counterpart (before Lancelot conveniently for dramatics took over his role as king's hero-biffle,) whose name is derived from Gwalchmai, or "The Hawk of May". Separate entities for sure, Gawain is a ladies man and a major sweet-talker/speechifier, but it was what I had to start with and was rolling these thoughts around mentally.

In my head I heard, teasing-disparaging, clear as a bell and without missing a beat, "He's a hack."

I have a pretty active imagination.  It was two weeks before I believed it was an actual thing.

What turned me was, I got this dusty little statue of him on the cheap at the flea market, the seller was packing up so it went for pocket change.  Got home, rinsed off & scrubbed the statue, threw down an offering dish of water in front of it, like I'd brought home a thirsty a parakeet or something.

Poof, surprise raise at work the next day.

...I wish They *all* did that!

And that was it, he left after that. Left an impression though.

Dua Heru-sa-aset, thank you for gifting me with extra money in a very costly year!

Reviving the thread because I'm getting a lot of royal kingly vibes from Heru right now, just increasing into my evening.

I was reflecting on how He caught my interest as a child way back when. I loved AE when younger and also loved cats and birds a whole lot. I had this minor obsession with Him for a bit before my wandering childlike ways found other things to play with.

That has me wondering if He didn't enter my life at that point and stayed with me until my RPD.

I definitely get the same feelings for coffee and chocolate. One time He HAD to have my cookie from the Doubletree hotel.  Nuts and chocolate.

Overall He has this kingly feeling, not entirely super serious all the time, but like a watchful protector that isn't afraid to joke sometimes.

Love Him!

Thank you Tawa'ubastmut for reviving this thread.

I love everything about Heru-sa-Aset.  He's the one, along with His sister Bast, that led me to the House.  And I was thrilled He chose to be my Father in my RPD.  For the most part the aspects I usually see are His kingly self, the mature, responsible man in His late 20's to early 30's.  I've also gotten the younger, warrior aspect too though and He likes humor.  As far as offerings go, He has been pretty laid back in my experience "If you like it, I'm sure I'll like it too."  But I've definitely gotten the vibe that He loves anything chocolate, especially milk chocolate and nuts like Snickers bar for example.

Papa has always been kind, and understanding, though I think He gets maybe just a little exasperated with me from time to time.  He's never really been that strict with me.  Two songs I associate the most with Him are Lean On Me - Bill Withers and Got My Mind Set On You by George Harrison.  He values loyalty, trust, honesty, equality, and balance the most, and I get the feeling He can't stand liars and pretenders.

Em hotep,

Very glad to see this thread revived. I was surprised, yet not surprised (if that makes sense) that Heru Sa Aset is a Beloved of mine.

Yinepu sent me to Him a few years back, as I was reaching a certain point in my development that Yinepu knew was coming, and that He knew Heru would be the best one to lead me through. It was intimidating at first, but I trusted and slowly built a relationship with Him.

He is, for me, several things. A loyal, trustworthy, and dignified Netjer. I can feel the kingly demeanor with the discipline and fearlessness of a warrior. When something is wrong, when someone is trying to get one over on others, He is the first to step up, stand tall and stand firm, fix His hawk eye, and say, "Not here, not now." Right and wrong, truth and justice are very important with Him. While He is a Netjer of few words, when He does speak, His words are well chosen and enunciated. He is precise, clear, and I feel a ruthlessness as well.

His compassion with me, though, is palpable. He has been very patient as I work through my issues and begin to find my voice. I am deeply grateful to Him for teaching me about standing firm between those that would disparage others and those that gave them shelter or trusted them. I never saw myself as having that role, never asked for that role, but most of my life I have found myself in that position. Now I know how and why.

Em hotep Tatuayinepu,

I have experienced the same kind of compassion from Him as well.  I've heard from some that He's really strict, but I haven't gotten that side of Him at all, well except once when I asked about something and He firmly put His foot down and said No!  Also with the patience too.  :)

"He's the one, along with His sister Bast, that led me to the House."

HSA and Bast are siblings?

News to me lol!!

Though if it is true, that would be cool.

Heru-Sa-Aset and I have a very loving, though teasing, relationship. A bromance, perhaps? I never had a serious encounter with him, and far more of a princely one; a young adolescent coming of age and still headstrong, and perhaps a little confused, with his becoming. I can sympathize. His relationship in my lineup is the one I need to work on the most, though I am kind and gentle on myself. I only just have come to know Hethert better after years of striving to know her, and she has shown herself to me more often in dreams and life. Perhaps it will soon be Heru's time, too. As beloveds, I feel they all have a specific place and time they are pre-destined to know us better.

If I recall correctly, HSA and Bast being siblings is a Greekified/Romanized thing - where They were  linked to Apollo and Artemis ^^

But in purely Kemetic/KO circles it’s not the case.
