Title: RPD Info Sent (Finally)
Post by: Serefwibast on March 05, 2018, 10:24:58 am
Em hotep nefer, everyone!

After being a member of the House for nearly three years, I finally felt/was told that it was time to send my RPD responses in. The responses and the payment was sent off on Friday.

I had taken extra time in order to come to terms with my practice and the seeming decline in Bast's presence to make way for other Names to be introduced to me. Years ago my mindset was so rigid that I felt I could not be happy if Bast was not one of my Parents. At this point however, I am confident that it will turn out however is best (though I still hope She is there).

It has been a long road and I couldn't be more excited/nervous/impatient to understand more about myself and the Names. This was probably the worst time with Hemet (AUS) getting ready for Paganicon, but I was impatient and being yelled at to turn everything in! Now I am compulsively checking my email every few hours to see if I have any response.  ::)

Nekhtet, SilverLeo! :D

I also waited a few years before applying for the RPD. There's something to be said for taking things at a measured pace. :)

I can't wait to see Who appears for you! ;D

Senebty,
Sedjfai

Nekhtet for you!

I agree with Tawa'u though, the wait is the hardest part! I waited three weeks to get the scheduling email and almost a month to get the divination itself done, and it's a LONG wait!

It's all very worth it in the end, though. For sure. C:

Ugh. I understand the reasoning behind this but I am going to serious need some help with patience while I wait!

Also, thanks t everyone for the kind words. I cannot wait to share the results when everything is said and done.

Nekhtet!! So happy for you, friend!! <3 Can't wait to celebrate when all's said and done!

I remember that my RPD got pushed back a couple of weeks because something had come up within Hemet's (AUS) family . . . the waiting is hard, but it won't be forever! ^_^

Senebty,

Nekhtet, friend! I just sent mine in a couple weeks ago, though it was through regular mail not email. I know how you feel, I can't stop checking my email too!

Indeed. I sent mine in 2-26 and am checking my email fairly often too.

Senebty,

Nekhtet to you both as well! Hopefully with all of us Hemet (AUS) will have enough that she can't ignore them for too long.  ;)

Em hotep, friends!

Haha, I know it's hard to wait when you're checking your e-mail constantly. I just want to remind folks that it's not a matter of Hemet (AUS) ignoring e-mails or even that she doesn't have enough questionnaires in to do a batch of RPDs (insofar as I know, she'll do just one at a time, although scheduling them back-to-back is helpful for her, since the ritual takes a full 24 hours for her to perform and requires trips to the store to get offerings / materials / etc . . . if she can make one trip and get everything for, say, two or three RPDs, that saves her a lot of time).

Plus, as some of you've said already, there's Paganicon coming up, and Hemet's working on her dissertation, and also doing work for the House. ^_^ I know you all know this, and SilverLeo, I'm presuming this was intended as a lighthearted joke . . . but in the off-chance that you're feeling like Hemet might be ignoring you . . . she's not, I can promise you that. She's just super, super busy--and human. <3

Senebty,
Gezausenu.

Thank you for the thoughtful response, Gezausenu.

I did completely mean my comment as a joke. I apologize to all if it did not come off that way. :-[

Em hotep nefer again, all!

I just scheduled my RPD for April 4th! I am quite excited and nervous to see who may show up. The past week has been full of ups and downs for me, so I am hoping to take the next few days to recenter and get myself in the right place to meet whichever Name/s want to show!  ;D

Almost there!  Bast does tend to wander.  Sometimes even for those of us who do have Her in our lineup.  But She also brings people here, and that may be the case.  I took the time before my RPD to think about Netjer as a whole, the overarching and connectedness.  Afterwards one can be so focused on the Names.  And remember... whoever is there is already in that role in your life, even if you don’t know it.  And you can always have relationships with names outside of the RPD.


sat Bast her Hekatawy-Alexandros, meryt Serqet-Aset, Yinepu-Wepwawet, her HetHert-Sekhmet.

That is a fantastic reminder Ankhetbast. It is occasionally hard to remember that the Netjeru aren't just now showing up as Parents, but that this may just be the first time my eyes have been opened to them.

This is also a great reminder to me. Thank you all for writing.
