Title: Question about followers with the same Parent(s)
Post by: Sekhepenaset on February 20, 2016, 10:43:09 am
Em hotep everyone,

I'm obviously new so this is my first formal hello.  I will be accepted as a Remetj very soon and I've not yet be divined.  For reference, you can call me by my username.  Bear with me as I figure forum posting out. 

I had a question regarding the similarities between Shemsu and Remetj who share the same Parent or Parents.  This question is directed at those who have been divined. 

Have any of you noticed any similarity in the personality, character, life experience etc. of people who share your spiritual Parent?  Preferably, people who share your exact Parent line-up.  I'm not so much interested in the entire line-up, Beloveds included, but if you have noticed any keen similarities amongst people who share your "exact" line-up - I'd love to hear about it.

I've searched thoroughly and I have not seen a question posted about this but I apologize if it's been answered already. 

There was one thread that kind of veered off into this direction but it dealt more with how certain Gods behave with Their children, and Their children being open to that style, as opposed to the similarities amongst the children as focal point.  For example, Aset, Set, and Sekhmet are Names notorious for being very commanding, aggressive, or tending to utilize tough love while Names like Hethert or Bastet have been known to be sweet and more gentle with their spiritual children.  And if you have those Parents, you're more likely to respond better to Their respective ways of encouraging you. 

So anyway, have you noticed any unifying or common factors amongst people who share your Spiritual Parents?  Obviously we're all different but I thought it was possible.

Wishing you all the best,
Senebty

Em hotep!

While there have been several single Parented children of Serqet-Aset, most had left the House long before I joined. The exception is Demetemserqet; we had the chance to message each other a bit. So I'm not sure if there are any/more similarities between them and myself.

In the Dual-Parented Serqet-Aset kids, I see some similarities between us as individuals. As a group of Serqet-Aset kids, I feel like we cover a spectrum; there's not really a specific "sign of Serqet-Aset" I've seen.

It's been my experience that it makes no difference; there are people I am similar to and people I am not.

Em Hotep,

in my experience people might have the same parents and but they don't necessarily have the SAME Parents.
To give an example...some people get Heru-Sa-Aset as king, some as child, some get Him in his aspect of pillar of His mother or avenger of His Father. They are all children of Heru and yet children of a different Heru.
And so each child would be different too. There seems however to be a slight trend that Heru-boys are leaving the nest and flying away.

I don't personally spend a lot of time with other Bast-Mut'lings, but I noticed from their posts that I get a feeling that we might be similar in some ways.  More like a hunch or intuition!

I haven't seen that much similarities between me and other Aset-Serqet kids, I don't think the Netjer necessarily choose people because they're similiar.  As alas I'm surrounded by Set kids.  O.O so many Set kids.  LOL  Sorry guys couldn't help myself.

I honestly don't know many Ra kids. Rayashi is the only one I get to talk to, it seems (and she's awesome!)

Ra isn't as "commanding" as I expected, He can be very kind and gentle. Just intimidating at first!

I hope more of Ra's children are divined in the future. :)

I've given some thought to that and yeah, I think there are some themes.  I don't want to go into it in this venue because the themes aren't entirely positive and I don't want to offend anybody.  :)  But I don't think there's anything that we can all be defined by.  Because we're individuals too and more goes into creating a person that their parent deity.  And also very much what Tanebet said about getting different versions of a parent.  With a syncretic deity, you're going to get different proportions of Bast and Mut.  And which Bast? And which Mut? 

It's an interesting intellectual exercise and worthwhile to ponder, but not to the point where you start to have expectations for people depending on their RPD without getting to know them.  You may have things in common with your sibs and you may not.

I have very few siblings on both sides of my lineup. I believe there are three Taweret kids including myself, and the only thing I know of that we have in common because the other two aren't as active is that we all live in Southern California. As for Sobek, I don't know of any active Sobek-only kids here as of right now.
The only other similarities I can think of is that myself and Senui-Iry-I almost had an identical lineup. She is a daughter of Sobek-Ra and Hethert-Sekhmet, and Beloved of Yinepu-Wepwawet and Set. I am a daughter of Sobek and Taweret, Beloved of Hethert-Sekhmet, Yinepu-Wepwawet, and Set (at the time of my RPD). Khnum became a Beloved afterwards. Similar lineup though, I'm not sure of what we might have in common personality wise.

Short Answer --> yes
Not so short answer --> not really

Ok, so, when I first came across the Temple (2002), there were obviously far fewer members, and far fewer Names represented as Parents and Beloveds. At that time, it was common for members to bet (for fun, not money) on who beginner's parents would be. They based their guesses on how the individual acted, life experiences, and even looks. For instance, there was a certain body shape that many Bast kids had. Not all, not even half matched up, but enough did that everyone "knew" that that was the way it was.

Over the next year, many "new" Names were divined as parents (including my own Mom, Bast-Mut) and beloveds, and the number of divined individuals exploded (beginner class sizes went from around 20-30 to over 100 in a few years). With that, almost all those stereotypes broke down, and I don't see people entertaining those behaviors anymore.  I think this is a good thing. It meant many people who had different experiences, different personalities, even different looks feel left out, and in some cases, even unwanted.

Yes, there are similarities I share with other Bast-Mut kids, and similarities I share with other Heru-wer kids. But I also have some similarities with a Serqet kid, an Aset kid, a Set kid, a Wesir kid, and many more. While our parents shaped us, formed our souls, we are so much more than duplicates, clones. Don't be pigeonholed, don't limit your interactions with others based on the RPD.

We are all children of Netjer, and that is all that matters.

Are there similarities with other siblings?  Perhaps.  Perhaps the Gods are more multi-faceted than just a single characteristic to be reflected in their kids?

I feel the similarities form overtime as we become closer with our siblings.  I know three other Ra kids quite well, and one or two more, just in passing.  I do see similar personality traits in each of the others, but I also feel you can find what your searching for, if you're trying to.

Just as my sister above said, I'd love to see a few more Ra kids be divined, but I'd especially like to see them stick around.  We have this thing where we like to pop in-and-out, not really leaving, just distancing while we work things out.  As Semaira mentioned, Ra is not as "commanding" as one may expect, so he's tends to be understanding of this behavior.

Thank you everyone for answering. 

We all know we're different and I wasn't trying to insinuate that you'd be twins or near exact copies of your spiritual siblings, I was merely curious if there was anything you have noticed.  Like Rayashi pointed out, you'll find what you want to see if that's what you have set out to do.

I'm not trying to establish a litmus test for determining spiritual siblings or Parents (though the story Padjaiemweru told about the early House's bets and Bast-lings body types was really funny) but as a few of you have said, there is a "something something" that you can't describe that is shared amongst your spiritual siblings. 

I wouldn't ponder long on it either.  Official disclaimer:  Not interested in establishing a litmus test or suggesting twin personalities amongst spiritual siblings or that Netjer chooses us based on how alike we are.

But anyway, I have enjoyed your answers so far.

Em hotep!

There are things, but there's no hard and fast rule. I think of it a lot like the argument of "nature vs nurture" in personality development... Perhaps "nature vs. nurture vs. Netjer"? Our personalities are so diverse just broken down into biology vs. environment, when you start to add in things like divine Parentage and astrological sign and anything else, it gets really hard to tell what's what.

I guess what I mean to say is that it can be really hard to see where the similarities really lie, when there are so many other factors involved in developing personality.

That said, I agree with everyone who has said there's a certain je ne sais quoi to children of each deity that makes them similar.

I hope that made sense!

Em hotep Praising Netjer,

This was a good question and as you saw you had many different responses.   I would agree with what's been said in regard to even though we share the same parent, we do not necessarily share the exact same image or personality with our siblings.

I'm a daughter of Yinepu (just Yinepu).   I have 4 beloveds and I suspect another Name (new one) has taken an interest.    When I first joined the House I too was looking for the similarities to my siblings and myself.

There are some Yinepu children here that I do have a very strong connection to and we do in a lot of ways see, hear and feel things in a similar way but there are also other siblings of Yinepu that I do not have a clue about :) (that's a good thing) and I find myself gravitating to them now to find out how they see Him (and thus giving me I think, a better picture of Him and all of his attributes) versus the way that I see him (singular). 

With that said each of us that are Yinepu children have a very precise image of our Father and when we pray to him or do work in his Name we have found  that the Yinepu in say Sun City AZ is different from the Yinepu at Tawy that I see when I attend Retreat.  That knowledge was a little mind boggling and I had a hard time wrapping my head around it but I get that now. 

Another example, I see Yinepu has very laid back and childlike at times.  He is not demanding but rather for me, gives me the time and space to figure out what I need to do and let's me get it done.  Other siblings see him as the Royal Child ..when I heard that description I was very wow'd as I never have experienced that aspect of him and my sibling had not experienced my version of him so we both learned something that day about our parent.  I've never forgotten that conversation.  :) 

In relation to how I fit in with the other Names and their children, I find that again, knowing a little bit about each sibling and how they see their individual Parent(s) gives me, I believe a better understanding of Netjer as a whole but also Netjer in relation to each Name and how they work individually (I see Netjer as a big diamond but with many, many facets and each facet is a different Name and a different function but they are one and many at the same time).

Kemetic religion has given me personally a very unique connection to the Divine and how I see the world and my place in it.   I've learned so much about myself, which in turn has helped me be a better person and more spiritual now than I was in the past.   I could not imagine being anything but what I am now.

Hope that helps.

Senebty.

Em Hotep!

I agree with the above that's been said. There are similarities, but each person seems to have a sort of personal version of their Parent. A long, long, time ago I was divined as the first kid of Mut-as-Amunet or Amunet. It took almost a decade, but there is finally another person with the same form of Amunet as a Parent.

Over the years I've noticed that there's similarities and also vast differences between each form of Mut, and Their -Mutlings, or children of Syncretic forms. Bast-Mut kids are similar to me, but still not, and so on and so forth.

My direct sibling is Dual Parented, so there's still some differences between us, but I can definitely see incredible similarities and analogous circumstances between us. Her second Mother is actually a Beloved of mine, so that makes things interesting. (I also now understand why Dual Parented folks are considered 100% of Each, as an aside lol.) Amunet uses many forms with me, and the same seems to be true for my sibling.


It's definitely a fascinating thing to brainstorm!

Meres: I use that same analogy!! I also view Netjer like a carved crystal with innumerable sides; and we can only see some of the sides at a time, explaining the unknowable.

Hm.. Well to be honest, I've only really had one outside-of-the-interwebs interaction with other Bast kids, and that was a good 15 years ago? I'd be hard pressed to tell you who was there.. Anyhow, I haven't noticed any major similarities between myself and others, but I am also extremely anti-social and have a tendency to drift away for long periods of time. Ha.. Like ten years. So that was completely not helpful, I'm sure.. =^~.o^=

Thank you everyone for your answers.

Ironically, I got impressions that I should make a post about enneagram and MBTI with the Names and the children of the Names before I read the new responses to the thread.

I'm very fluent in MBTI and enneagram.  I've studied both for several years now.  So, is anyone interested in a thread about the enneagram or MBTI types of the children who share Names? 

I think it's doable.  But it will be a headache to put together.

By statistics, most of the people on the forum are probably INFP. 

The reason being is that INFP's tend to be withdrawn, eclectic individuals.  Many of them, just by nature, turn to the internet to share their experiences with others like them.  In addition, INFP's tend to be one of the most spiritual of MBTI types.

I'm not saying that most Shemsu or Remetj with the House of Netjer are INFP.  I'm saying that, by statistical likelihood, the people on the forums are most likely to be INFP or Introverted-Intuitive types. 

The challenge with creating a poll by enneagram type or by MBTI type or both is how long it would be.  There are so many Names and so many variations of the Names and there are 16 cognitive types and 9 enneatypes, 18 if you count both the core type and the wing types. 

It would be a MASSIVE poll.

Em hotep everyone,

MBTI is not about the test.  The test is garbage, worthless, and should never be trusted or used. 

The test is mostly a marketing shtick and a rip off of what MBTI professionals will use in typing a client but even so, it is not the whole or main beef of the typing practice and it does not constitute the whole of what MBTI REALLY is. 

MBTI is about cognitive functions or more simply put, different ways humans analyze and compile information.

There are 8 cognitive functions.  Everyone has all 8 and we use them in our day to day lives but there a specific few we prefer and use more naturally than others. 

In order to label yourself correctly, you would have to study all 8 of the cognitive functions and then study HOW you most naturally think.  CBT says that how you think influences how you feel and behave and that is generally true.  There are trends of behavior and traits amongst people of the same type.

The Enneagram test is not as worthless as the MBTI test but you would still need to study all of the enneatypes to discover your core type.  Enneagram is about your core fears and desires. 

You will see bits and pieces of yourself in all of the Enneagram but the one you identify with most, the one that you can conceptualize as being your main drive is your core type.  In addition, everyone has two lesser core types in Enneagram. 

Typing yourself in any system requires a lot of introspection.  It isn't a simple as taking a test.  It can take a good while to figure yourself out to the extent that you hone in on what drives you or how you tend to interpret the world. 

Sorry if I sound a bit aggressive or irritated.  Most people do not have a clue about what typology is all about and then they deem it nonsense because the marketing for typology is terrible.  It's accurate, in as much, as what it focuses on.

And don't even get me started on those types of people who dismiss it because they think they are such, "super special magical unicorn-snowflakes" that they can't be labeled for anything.  As I said, it's accurate, in as much as what it focuses on.  With MBTI, the focus is on how you analyze or compile information.  With Enneagram, the focus is on your core fears and desires and how that relates to the development of drives that motivate you to do or behave in certain ways.

I have to yet to be divined (hopefully, that will change soon).  But for anyone curious, I'm ENTP and my core type is 5w6. 

Senebty

Thank you for your kudos.

I've studied MBTI long enough that I can generally tell what type someone is by body language, speech patterns, and "vibes". 

Tawa'ubastmut is the classic example of an INFP.  I hope she doesn't mind me saying so. 

But yeah, you are.  The sweetheart cinnamon roll who is very playful and silly.  Your usage of emojis, or rather, HOW you use them is also typical of INFP's I've seen on the internet.  And judging by your Tarot card site profile-picture, your facial expression communicates the peaceful, zen aura of many Fi dominants and that comes through strongly.  (I also respect the fact you're a Tarot reader)

I hope you don't mind me using you as an example  If you want me to remove my comments, I will.  I didn't mean to offend you or put you on the spot, only to demonstrate the variances in type and the depth of typology once you have studied it long enough. 

I think a lot of children of Bast-Mut would be familiar with Introverted Feeling because Bast, in many of Her forms, is infamous for communicating with/through emotions.  Introverted Feeling or Fi, as it is written amongst those fluent with MBTI, is a function that focuses on your own inner emotions in all their complexity.  I'm not saying all children or beloveds of Bast-Mut would be INFP.  Only familiar with Fi/Introverted Feeling which is the dominant, leading function of INFP's. 

Taji said that if there was to be a trend amongst Bast-Mutlings, as an example, there does seem to be some narcissistic behavior amongst *some* Bast-Mutlings.  I would hypothesize that many of Bast-Mut's children are 4's on Enneagram.  The 4 enneatype is connected with the Introverted Feeling function in MBTI.

The 4 enneatype deals with a desire to be recognized as unique and special and obviously, the fear is of being engulfed, of losing the core aspects of who you are and made "common" so as to be erased.  Intuitively and in literature, it has been suggested that these people were neglected somehow, someway and it impacted them enough that they focus so exclusively on themselves as "special" to compensate for a lack of attention.  When unhealthy, 4's can become very narcissistic, self-absorbed, and overly dramatic.  They become dependent on getting reassurance that they are "special" from everyone.  Does that sound familiar to you regarding the struggles or not so positive behavior you see amongst your spiritual siblings, Taji? 

Bast-Mut is a Name formed by the merging of the Goddesses Bast and Mut.  It seems most people see Her as Bast with the direct, queenly qualities of Mut.  Royalty are paid attention to by everyone.  They command presence and power and in a sense, they are special.  Perhaps there lies some kind of connection to the struggles and qualities that Bast-Mutlings might or might not display with the various forms of typology. 

But, again, I want to reiterate, I dealt with the previous examples as a trend.  Not to say that every Bast-Mutling will struggle with or have the same traits as their other spiritual siblings.  I was just tying together a bunch of possibilities and what-ifs as a demonstration.  Typical of my Extroverted Intuition. 

But I would be afraid to make a large poll regarding MBTI and enneatypes because I think it will only further the misunderstanding and propaganda of the typing systems.

Dua Bast-Mut!

praisingnetjer, that was an amazing post!  (And I don't mind at all, I like being an example.  Maybe my 4 talking.)

I got Enneagram type 2w1, I believe. And as much as it might be confusing, I would love to see how things shake out, just for curiousity's sake.

Thank you!  And that's great.  I'm glad it was interesting. 

Our Parent Gods, in the strictest sense of the lessons, help shape us at our cores and typology talks about who we are at the core.  My only fear with a poll is that people would take a test, post a result, and leave. 

But if this is something that a lot of people would be interested in, I could start a thread talking about typology and the bigger ins and outs of it.  There is a spiritual application so I don't think it would be totally out of place. 

What do you guys think?

While it's not strictly Kemetic Orthodoxy, I'd be interested in reading about it.

It could be interesting!

Incidentally, after some research, it seems I've typed as 6w7. Initially I typed as 9w1 but something wasn't quite right, so I tried a few more inventories and went with the more common result. I'm not sure what that all says about my Parents but I'd be willing to chat about it!

Do you have any suggestions as to where I could post it where it wouldn't seem totally out of place?  I know there is a private board for us to talk about our interests that aren't solidly KO.

I'm mostly hoping everyone would get something out of it.  If there are trends of cognitive type and enneatype amongst children of the Names then that's fine.  But beyond my original reason for starting this thread, I'm hoping it would bring more depth to your understanding of yourself and your relationship with the Names.

Please don't take it to the privates. I still don't have the ability to see those, and I can't seem to get that fixed, and this is super interesting to me.

Hmm.  I type as INFP, but I don't think anyone would use the phrase "sweetheart cinnamon roll" to describe me. :)

Apologies for not answering your question, but you posted in response something I deleted shortly after saying.   It's not a conversation I'm comfortable having and I'd rather not speculate on the childhood adversities of my siblings. To be honest, my own childhood really was not that bad.   

I really don't think the types of adversity we face determines who we are characterlogically.  I think we all face adversity and trials by virtue of being human in an imperfect world.  But how we react is often in response to something innate.  I don't think a childhood of neglect makes someone a Four.  Nor do I think that all Fours were neglected (I really wasn't), but one's type could influence how one responds to neglect.

But sure, I like talking about this stuff.  If you had a thread, I would be following it for sure.

I really would rather it on the private side though. I don't want my stuff available to random Google people.  I must've failed to realize this wasn't on the private side.

Haha.  I knew right away that you weren't the cinnamon roll INFP type like your sister but I can definitely still see it.  You fall in line with another variant of INFP stereotype I've seen.

Yeah, I haven't participated in a forum in a long time so you had no way to know anyway.  I apologize for not being more acquainted with this.

I'll make a post on typology further explaining it all since there's a lot to be discussed.  The bit on the Four Enneagram is just one of the possible explanations for a Four development and adversity isn't the only thing that can impact the Enneagram types.  You do bring up good points but....it's a big topic.  Fodder for discussion there  ;)

I would post it privately but it appears Daughter cannot read the private posts.  Don't know if there would be a compromise about what could be done.

Please don't take it to the privates. I still don't have the ability to see those, and I can't seem to get that fixed, and this is super interesting to me.

Have you tried talking to the webmaster?

Which one?  I'm curious.  :-)

So this was funny.  I was reading a post on a bulletin board for type 4s.  And someone said that they had started to post a thread about how they felt they were very different than other self identified 4s posting in the forum.  Then they realized what they were doing and burst out laughing. 

I laughed too. 

I'm a special snowflake.  Nobody understands me.  ;-D

The cynical, more skeptical kind of INFP who fronts as harder and is more detached.  But I still see that Fi.  You can't hide anything from these eyes.  But don't worry, we won't be having a pity party unless everyone wants to. 

Haha, type 4's would.  "I don't think I'm like everyone else" is the cry of the 4 enneatype.  But that's hilarious.  Definitely a personal favorite.

Nekhtet!

Alright kids, pay attention to the off-topic fellowship/discussion boards.  I'll post everything there soon/when I can.

well in my humble experience each name is like a very intense flavor but each one of them is a very complex flavor, like when you taste vanilla for the very first time and some say taste sweet some say taste spicy some say taste acid, well even been child or beloved of same parents we relate with a different aspect or angle of them but our life experience give us a different aproach of the same subject.

me for example been child Sekhmet-Hethert beloved of Yinepu-Wepwawet and Set do not know if there is anybody else with my same lineup but surely if there were we will share a common ground and if we talk we will find a lot of similarities but surely we will find many differences as well.

sometimes i feel myself a Very Sethian kind of Sekhmet-Hethert child, sometimes i feel Hethert sweetens me up a bit and almost all the time i feel that Yinepu guides me very often, so hope this helps anybody
