Title: Hethert
Post by: Demaimuti on May 29, 2018, 02:18:19 pm
Do most Hethert children or beloveds experience Hethert as very quiet? I get emotional nudges from Her but I don’t think I’ve ever heard her speak. I’m trying to work out if this is a Hethert thing or a Hethert-Mut thing.

Em hotep, Demaimuti! *henu*

My Hethert is VERY quiet, I get fuzzy feelings only, and any words are more my own thoughts deciphering those feelings, than actual words from Her.

I have heard others get a very chatty Hethert however, so I'm not sure if it's defined to a -Mut thing, or just that we get different Hetherts in general. :)

Hopefully others will chime in, I'm also curious!

   Em hotep Demaimuti and Inqi !

       My Hethert is Bat, and i feel She is quiet too, although when i'm praying to Her, i feel She's listening everything, I feel her eyes watching me deeply. I know She's listenning. And i think when She is goin to say something, She will say so much things with few words, that will have a great meaning.

  Senebty !

Em Hotep! :)

I do not have Hethert in my lineage, but I have contact with Her.
With me she is very expressive in all her acts, so she certainly always comes happy, majestic and she really likes to express herself by speaking. But sometimes I also have the feeling that Hethert is also the moment of inner silence and that is one of the ways she talks. It's the best I can explain :b
Sometimes like Bast, who read that many of her children perceive a very strong emotional manifestation, Hethert is also like this :)

I hope it helps.

Correction, anyone who interacts with Hethert does she speak or is she quiet?

Sorry I do not understand? I'm using the translator and sometimes translate it wrong. I said that Hethert uses silence as a way of expressing himself, just as Bast sometimes

My Hethert will laugh and be quite joyous and happy but She doesn't speak to me so often

Then again, I don't work with Her too often

Em hotep!

I am not sure if I'm the best person to respond because I don't really "hear" my gods, rather I get emotions, sensations, and vibes. In this way, She can be quite "loud." She isn't always loud, though, but that could also be because Djehuty dominates most of my god interactions.

Hello! My Hethert doesn’t often speak. She’s joy and so very, very big.

She’s very different from how I’ve seen in saq.

But, I know Reverend Neferu hears Her speak all the time.

For the most part she's very quiet though I have experienced her in a loud and joyful way. This is very rare though.  Mostly she's subtle and quiet.

My Hethert is not chatty at all. When I "hear" from her, it's usually in tactile sensations and very, VERY rarely, a picture-thought that appears in my head of something I need to do. But that's really only happened once or twice in 18 years of hanging out together. Usually it's the skin thing.

My Mother doesn't speak with words very often, usually she speaks to me with images and surges of emotion. I wouldn't call her quiet, it's just a different form of communication. She's very active in my life, just not so many words. When she does actually speak it is very powerful!

You said nothing wrong. I was correcting myself.

You know, I don't think I've ever experienced Hethert-Mut actually speaking to me! When She wants to make something known to me, it's usually through emotions, or urges to do something that I normally wouldn't have? If that makes sense?
I'm sort of in the same boat with Iryi on this. I don't know if I'd necessarily call Her quiet? It's just that She's not particularly talkative with me, but She can, will, and does get Her point across when She wants to! She's just a lot more subtle about it, especially when compared to Aset. :P

I've found "original flavor" Hethert (as opposed to the "-Mut flavor") to be extremely chatty when I experience Her, though! She loves to talk, even if it's just idle chitchat about my day or something I've accomplished recently while I'm fixing dinner, or whatever. Very joyful and full of laughter, too.

YMMV though, of course!

Hethert has been vocal when I've interacted with Her (I also get a vocal Nebt-het as well).

Em hotep Demaimuti,

I am not a child of HetHert, but She is one of my beloveds as is Bast.  I've heard both Bast and HetHert speak publically and privately to me over the years.  I've not had the pleasure of hearing Bast Mut speak to me either publically or privately.

What I can tell you about HetHert is that when she speaks to me or is around
me, I very much feel the color PINK (and I'm serious saying everything is tinted with pink) with shades of gold and turquoise.  When she talks to me,  Her voice can sound like tinkling bells with laughter and smells like Roses (pink of course).

I'm a jackal kid not a HetHert child.  When she's around I always have a sore face afterwards from smiling the whole time She's there.  She has also spoken to me before pictures by showing me images of things that She wanted me to see.  When She is doing a public Saq during retreat at the Sekhmet Baths for the congregation, She stops at each person and takes the time to talk with each of us present personally.  We are all privy to hearing her speak to all of us and tell us what things Netjer wants us to know that particular year. 

Arieni's comments about feeling HetHert as sensations is true for me as well. When she doesn't speak in words, the emotion of Love is very present and very strong.  Sometimes it's just the sheer joy of Love of self, family, others, Nature, and Netjer. I offer Hethert flowers, music or incense (never meat of any kind).  She likes fruity beer too (Lindeman's Lambeck Framboise (Belgian Ale as it's raspberry). 

Regarding Bast, she seems to be more of primal feelings with me.  I've heard her speak to me before but her voice is very low and I've heard what I thought was a growl once but mostly it's feelings, (especially feeling feral myself during the full moons) and pictures/themes with Bast.  She can be feral and want to rip and tear or She can be very warm and nurturing depending on what She feels you need at that time.  I offer her milk and meat and dark chocolate or even catnip. 

Each one of them speaks and interacts with me differently.  I've accepted that there is no right or wrong way to communicate with any of the Names.  Some are verbal, some are cerebral, some are violent and archetypical in nature and represent forces of Nature literally it's quite the journey interacting and learning to listen and "hear" each of the Names.  It's an honor to get to know them and learn more about each of them.   I don't think I'll get to know them all by the time I go to the West but I'm going to talk to as many of Them as I can. :)

I wouldn't call my Hethert quiet, but I also wouldn't call her a chatterbox.

She's very engaging and expressive, very loud in action more than words. And she does talk, she's not shy about that. She just doesn't talk as much as some of the other Gods around me, she's often happy to let action and emotion convey her meaning, with speaking filling in the other half of the time. It's like two languages she switches between with equal proficiency.

I've been giving Hethert a bunch more attention lately, as my work lays very firmly in Her field of expertise, and She seems to be happy with it. I find mostly that She's not quiet, but she's not talkative.

I feel Her very strongly, in emotions and colors and music and the world around me, but I don't hear Her voice like I hear, say, Set's voice. So she's very present for me, but not in the way I'm used to.

She is the 'wandering goddess', but for me, She's always here, with me :) For me, She talks in a quiet, warm, loving voice. Sometimes She doesn't talk; She communicates with a warm embrace, a happy smile. 

She is the bulwark of 'I'm okay, you're okay'. Anything I do to make another human being feel better is an offering to Her <3

Typically I know when Het-Hert is the one with me by her very distinct laughter or chuckling. She always feels like she's up to something and she's watching it play it according to plan with amusement. It's not malicious--mischievous maybe--but definitely not an unsettling kind of feeling I would usually have with an entity who feels like they're amused with their plans.

When she speaks, I get slivers of imagery, smirks, winks, certain gestures and postures, simultaneous with a very warm voice. Maybe it's just me, but she has beautiful long fingers and nails to match.

By far my most powerful experiences with her are when I am at parties. I often invite her to dance with me, and lose myself. My body will move without me really planning anything. Sometimes it will feel like a duet, like she is dancing with me, and sometimes, it feels more like she's dancing through me. I have heard her sort of complain once or twice about my body not being quite sturdy or flexible enough to do what she'd like, but always in a very playful tone.

So, I guess my Het-Hert is, as others have said, not particularly quiet, but not really a chatterbox. It's her playfulness that hits me first. It's that kind of playfulness that has more substance, more knowing to it. It's not a reckless playfulness. Usually, I think playfulness has a childlike connotation, but that is also not the case with hers. I have to say, her strength in it is inspiring.

Some great responses here.

Hethert-Mut hanging around my swing dancing class is definitely on the list of reasons why I miss that. (Not healthy enough to participate)
