Title: Re-introduction (another! lol)
Post by: Sora_1 on December 07, 2012, 02:18:02 am
Em Hotep, everyone!

Let's see... where to begin?  I joined last year, on the forums, in hopes of taking the Beginner class.  I had some really crazy things happen, and needless to say, stopped logging on.

At the time I joined, Set had come into my life very strongly.  Thanks to some great people, I learned a lot.  He brought change, alright, but change I either couldn't or wouldn't accept.  So, things with him got put on the back burner (the entire story would be very long), until recently.  

Both Set and Sekhmet came roaring into my life, Sekhmet for the very first time (though I've always been fascinated by her).  A dear friend of mine (Iwa'at) has helped me so much, through this and before, and she's the reason I found the KO forums.  I have learned a good bit, and I'm just glad I have resources to understand Sekhmet and Set's role in my life.  Not only Sekhmet, but Hethert.  "Accept one, Accept both".  They have given this charge to me, and it makes sense from the things I've read, been through and have discussed with Iwa'at (at great length, I might add).  

She (Sekhmet) is requiring Senut of me.  I am preparing an altar in one room of my house, as my main altar is in my living room.  The Netjer are not too keen to share space with Pan (my patron for the last several years).  Long story on that one!!  But, a separate room, and separate practices, this is okay.

I am being guided by Iwa'at in the preparations for Senut, and the making of Natron.  Right now, I'm broke, and no money for kosher salt, but plenty of table salt...  It seems that is okay for now, the important thing is that I make the Natron, and perform Senut (I already have a dress just for that).

I have to apply for the next round of beginner classes, whenever that may be, and I do know I am to at least be divined.  As you can see, I've done a *lot* of thinking, researching on the appropriate path to go down, and meditated on this deeply.

This is long and rambling for an intro, as I do that. :-P  It's just my nature to be all over the place. lol  

I am very glad to be here, again, but I finally feel like this is coming home.  :-)

Blessings and Senebty,

April

Thank you, everyone.  I'm not completely awake, but yes, it's been an interesting year, indeed.  Also, I agree.  The feeling is truly wonderful.

It might take me a bit to get used to the forums (never have been a forum surfer, lol), but I'm so happy to be here. :-)
