Title: New here - Hello!
Post by: Starseed on June 17, 2019, 11:51:21 am
Hello everyone, I'm new here! I was eagerly waiting for admin approval to join this forum and I'm so excited to be here.

I am here to learn and discover if Kemetic Orthodoxy is what I've been looking for in my life. What I currently practice is best described as pagan I suppose. I keep an altar and practice witchcraft (primarily purification and protection spells/rituals).

While I do honor some Nordic deities, the primary deity I honor on my altar is Anpu/Yinepu (Anubis). He came to me in dreams a few years ago, when I was starting to practice my craft and open up to other forms of spirituality. He has appeared to me throughout my life but I was not always open to the signals.

I also honor Bast and Ma'at on my altar but my relationship with them is not yet as developed as my relationship with Anpu.

As mentioned above, Anpu/Yinepu has appeared to me in dreams, and has also been a pillar of support for helping me deal with my clinical depression. Last year in the fall I had a dream where I was attempting to warn people of someone's foul deeds. I was unable to be confident in my words and unable to convince people. Yinepu spoke through me, like he had posessed me, and helped the people listen and understand. I heard his voice, but the voice others heard was mine. I felt this was a lesson teaching me that he is here for me, and here to help me. I believe he was encouraging me to be more confident, and louder.

In the winter I had another dream. Yinepu possessed me again and pulled my rings off my fingers. They were some prized possessions I wear every day. He threw them into a fire and allowed them to melt. I believe this was a lesson teaching me about materialism. I use buying and shopping as a coping method for my depressive moods and I believe this was Yinepu teaching me how unhealthy that behavior was.

I am eager to learn more about Kemetism as from what I read it seems to fit what I have been in search of. Thank you!

that's quite the story, it sounds like you experience what I've experienced. The gods speaking through my voice and guiding me and teaching me through visions and daily happenings. Me and Heru are quite close but Anubis helped me ditch my habit of giving too much credit to Heru, and give praise to the gods who help with each aspect. But I didn't have to stop loving Heru he told me, just be thankful to all the gods equally or you may be at danger of closing yourself off again.
