Title: Which Netjeru do you feel most connected with?
Post by: Senedjem on September 14, 2009, 07:27:09 am
I feel a very strong connection with Heru-Sa-Aset. I am just curious which name of Netjer others feel most connected with.

I also feel connections with others like Hethert, Ra, Djehuty, and more recently I am drawn to Yinepu.

Wepwawet, Bast, and Serqet. Bast all my life, Wepwawet and Serqet VERY strongly since RPD. It's like the floodgates opened, it's been incredible. I've started feeling Serqet as motherly now, much as I do Bast :P

Bast-Mut (but of course) always... and recently, putting a Name to a Face I've always loved, Khonsu. Things have clicked in my little brain as to the many connections I have with Him (both old and new), and I believe I'll be making a shrine for Him sometime soon.

Em Hotep!

Djehuty!  I've also been blessed with a lot of things from Hethert and Sekhmet, Seshat-Nit-Nebthet, and Heru-Wer has been very good to me.  (and Bes, Set, Khonsu, and a whole lot of others!)

I've had a small experience with Bast and Sekhmet (I think, at least lol) so They are definitely two that I'm interested in. Additionally, I think that Djehuty, Aset, Sekhmet-Mut, Bast-Mut, Wesir, and Nebt-het are very cool. :) Time will tell as I pray to Them and get to know Them. :)

Bast, actually.  Obviously I also feel a connection to Wesir and Serqet.  Lately there seems like something might be forming on another front, although I can't put a name to the feeling.  I want to say Ma'ahes, but that might just be because my Shen (a necklace with a Netjeri/spirit attached to it, to oversimplify things) is a Ma'ahes Shen.

I feel closest to my Mothers Hethert-Sekhmet and Bast.  I'm slowly learning to grow closer to Amunet (She loves to be with me as I create my jewelry or cross-stitchings, the more detailed and labor-intensive, the better!)

I feel closest to my Father, Set, but since my RPD I have been growing closer to my other Father, Amun-Ra.

Post by: Khusisokar on September 14, 2009, 07:42:04 pm
Shockingly, I'm sure, I'll have to say I am most connected with my Father, Sokar.

Min & I have become much more closely connected in the last couple of years, and I have walked with Nefertem for years & years.  I am still trying to develop a closer relationship with Wepwawet, but He is a serious puzzle to me, and we remain fairly distant.

Outside of my RPD line-up, I've a quite close relationship with Heqet and am working on building a connection with Nekhbet & Heka.

I'm also indebted to Wesir.

I would have to say the name I feel closest to right now is Bast-Mut. I have had previous strong connections with Bast and Yinepu. Other Names that I've been curious about/interested in lately include Yinepu-Wepwawet, Serqet, Hethert-Sekhmet, Heru-Wer, and Nebthet.

Hotep Taji! It was a number of things, actually. I first started having impressions of "Bast" over a year ago, and I couldn't really put my foot on it.  I wasn't as familiar with the idea of syncretization as I am today- the image I got was of a domestic feline of sorts, so naturally I assumed Bast.

I never got her as being very RAWRRR in your face, it was more like, "I have claws. I CAN use them - but only when necessary. I like to keep things classy." ;P She used to help me out a lot when I would go to the gym, giving me a swift kick-in-the-rear during kickboxing class when I thought I didn't have any energy left. That's the only time she ever got really firm with me- when she was trying to motivate me to achieve something, to see me succeed.

Another thing early on that I didn't realize was that whenever I would meditate and see her in my mind, she was almost always enthroned. I just kind of overlooked it- it never occurred to me that the throne had any real significance, even though it basically screamed 'royalty', i.e - Queen ;P She always presented herself as classy, regal, yet down to Earth at the same time. A warm, loving mother - but also not afraid to show off her claws a bit if you need a wake up call. ;P

It was really only recently that I realized these connections. I started looking into syncretization more, and Bast-Mut just fit better with what I was experiencing. Another possibly unrelated thing- I was looking at Merimask's Etsy shop the other day- they have done some amazing black, blue, and gold masks of Bast and Yinepu in the past, so I keep an eye on them. I had seen their Bast masks before and thought they were stunning, but   this (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30686433) mask hit me like a ton of bricks. It's a Bast mask, but ENTIRELY painted gold. I don't even LIKE gold that much, usually I prefer silver- but this one started screaming at me. If I had the funds, I would have snatched it up in a second just to get my brain to shut up. :P Gold seems to say "royalty" a lot more clearly to me than the regular black masks they normally do... who knows. Again, these are just the little things I noticed. :)

...Did I mention I'm a Chai tea fanatic? :D

Senebty!
Title: Re: Which Netjeru do you feel most connected with?
Post by: Tasedjebbast on September 14, 2009, 09:07:51 pm
That all makes sense.  And chai tea = divine nectar.  ;)

I doubt I could have put my experience into words as well as you did.  But basically I noticed I wan't getting Her as a domestic cat anymore.  She was coming to me as a big cat, a mountain lion actually.  And She had an older, more reserved, more regal feel.  And then I once saw Her in my mind's eye wearing the double crown.  :)  

It's cool to have another Pennsylvanian around by the way.  I grew up outside of Philly, but I'm on the other end of the state these days.

Well Wesir definately. Other names would include Nut, Sokar, Yinepu, Bes, Sekhmet, Ra, Heru, Serqet, and Djehuty.
Title: Re: Which Netjeru do you feel most connected with?
Post by: Tawaisenu on September 14, 2009, 10:17:17 pm
Djehuty is with me whenever I drive, strangely enough. Always sitting in the passenger seat, smiling. Other than that not really anyOne else, my Mother has been a bit elusive. And Amun's just happy to get His offerings in Senut.

Outside of RPD: A bit of Heru-wer, a wee bit of Bes, maybe because of my shen.

After my Mother, I feel most connected to Bast. She's always been there for me. Other then that, recently I've had Set and Yinepu drop by.
Title: Re: Which Netjeru do you feel most connected with?
Post by: TabauAmunet on September 15, 2009, 07:01:55 am
I'd definitely have to say my Mother Amunet (duh, lol!) is the closest to me. And although i have a very close-knit relationship with most of my Beloveds, outside of my RPD i deal with numerous Names off and on all the time, especially with so many other Kemetics in my house. I have a deep soft spot in my heart for Wepwawet, Djehuty, and Nefertem, though. I am also becoming fond of some of the other Names in the Ogdoad, specifically Kuk, recently. They are hard to wrap the head around though, lol!

---- aside ----
Set and Heru-wer hang around for Sensenet, and Ra-Heruakhty and Wepwawet are often nearby for Khetem. Amusingly enough when i asked Hemet about Set as a Beloved, she said He confirmed He was there for Sensenet primarily. And sometimes Amunet (and recently Seshat) hangs around Khetem for one reason or another.

Makes one wonder if there's like a Netjer-bubble around us that affects those nearby directly. Too bad there's not very many large groups of Kemetics living together to test it out...

Post by: Djehutyendy on September 15, 2009, 08:55:22 am
I feel like most people are going to say their Parents, hehe.

With that said, I feel closest to Djehuty. But I also feel equally close to Geb. Hethert is also another Name of Netjer that I am very close to. But outside my line-up, I am quite close to Heru-wer. Some other Names that I are a part of my life, yet on a lesser scale, are Ra, Shu, Nut, Khnum, and Aset. And I have been trying to get close to some lesser known Names. One that I am particularly drawn to is Hu.

After some searching, Hu sounds like a fascinating Name! Glad to know there's some more Odd God love going 'round. :) I'd love to hear any interesting tidbits you find! I'm also trying to get to know some of the lesser known Names. They surprise me almost every time! Kuk is scary at first, but there is a comfort to His darkness, the emptiness and stillness.

Post by: Sekhmetnenek on September 15, 2009, 09:20:28 am
Em hotep!

Although I have not yet done any formal workings with any Name, I do feel most drawn to Sekhmet (or one of Her syncretized forms like Sekhmet-Hethert or Sekhmet-Mut). Her image has always inspired me to persevere, even when I am most down. In that way, I feel that She has made herself known to me. I definitely do need to investigate this link before I can be too sure.

I do have a list of Names which interest me a lot for what They represent or embody for me. Set, in particular, sticks out to me. He embodies the necessity of destruction/chaos FOR order and rebirth (mainly what I get from Him fighting Ap_p). Other names that interest me are Sobek and Djehuty.

Like I said, I have no formal workings with any of the Names, so this is just my impressions for now. I will obviously be more clear as I continue my explorations into Kemetic spirituality. I am glad the Beginner's Course is starting soon, because I certainly have a lot of questions and am eager to truly learn.

Senebty!

Actually, there is something of a "bubble" around us. :)

Those of us who live together with other divined people sometimes feel the presence of those people's Gods around us. For instance, Zaer (my husband) has Sobek as a Beloved... after he was divined (actually, I take that back: before he was divined even, just in a different way), I felt Sobek's presence around me as well. I, as well as others, have asked Hemet(AUS) about this, and She's replied that the Gods do take an interest in those Their people love... so we sort of have Beloveds-in-law(s). (So, while I feel Sobek around me quite a bit of the time, He isn't specifically in my "line up", but He does watch over me because I am married to one of His beloveds. :) )

Post by: Shezatwepwawet on September 15, 2009, 12:14:43 pm
Wepwawet, of course. ;) Though until RPD He presented Himself as Yinepu. Long story there. Seshat is so close I still am not sure why I am not dual-parented.
Aset has been very maternal to me at times when I really needed it, and yesterday I FINALLY got my first statue of Her and have a shrine complete now. I'm especially close with Her as Weret Hekau.
Wadjet is another Name, and during the icon presentation at Wep Ronpet this year, I touched Hers when it came out and got a en electric jolt without the electricity. I got an icon of Her last month and now it resides near my senut shrine and She and I are both quite pleased.

I'm growing fond of Heru-Wer, and both Sekhmet and Hethert may be sneaking in more. ;)

I've felt a connection to Hethert and Shu for a long time now, and we've been very close ever since I learned who They are. I've also been building a relationship with Heru-sa-Aset since my RPD, and we've become a lot closer over the past few months.

Title: Re: Which Netjeru do you feel most connected with?
Post by: Tasedjebbast on September 15, 2009, 08:38:04 pm
It's not too far off.  There is a Sekhmet-Bast-Ra.  And they're also connected through Hethert.  Hethert is the Southern Bast and Bast is the Northern Hethert.  And Sekhmet is Hethert, so there you go.  :)

It's cool to know that someone else has had a similar experience. Having 3 divined Shemsu and a rootnamed child (teen now) in the house here makes things interesting. We're pretty sure Weheb is a Sobek or Sobek-Ra kid, He hangs around often. So many Names makes life wodnerful, interesting, and tiring, lol! Names that aren't even in any of our line-ups hang around, too.

I've always had a deep connection with Bast since I can remember. I actually started studying Egyptian history because I heard that they worshiped cats and discovered Bast in a book. I've loved cats since I was little and Bast always reminded my of a fun-loving, yet protective mother. I also more recently developed a connection with Horus (Heru-sa-Aset); ever since I working with Horus I've seen hawks EVERYWHERE and they always make me smile; I've also always worn a pendant with his Eye on it. I also feel a tenuous connection with Neith, though I'm still exploring that one.

I can't wait till he becomes a member to find out for sure.

I was very close to Bast for a long time. She left my life when I was in the beginner's class.

Nefertem has been really close off and on the past.. uh.. at least 6 months? Something long-term like that. Wenut poked me the other night and I'm waiting to see if she'll be around a lot or if she's going to stay in the background.

Well Wesir, Ra, and Wepwawet are all sorts of given. I have a good connection and fascination with Djehuty, Set, Het-heret, Sekhmet, Tefnut, Nebt-het, and Aset. I’m also a fan boy of the lesser known god Shezmu! Who doesn’t love the god responsible for wine and oil presses who rips off the heads of the wicked and squeezes their heads on his press to make wine for the virtuous? He really does need more attention considering he was a widely worshiped god!

It changes between Bast and Ra for me, and sometimes both of them at the same time equally. Right now its Bast, probably because of the time of year.

I also feel close to Wepwawet, Yinepu, Set, Sekhmet and Aset. But I believe that's because I have become so close to their children through the NorthEast 'Spotted Cat' Nome love lmao

Min is wonderful.  He absolutely cannot come up in conversation without good-natured laughter.  Says a lot about Him, huh? :)

I'm closest to my Father, Bes.  Other than Him, I'd have to say I'm closest to Sekhmet.  My Beloveds are in a different category.  I wouldn't say I'm *close* to Them, but They are an integral, special part of my life.

I am closest to my Father (Set), although I am becoming closer and closer with my Mother (Hethert) with every passing day. Of my Beloveds, I am closest to Heru-Wer. I've worked to get to know Him and develop a relationship, and it feels really quite special. :)

I've been having some strange relationships pop up recently.

Before I joined KO, I had a very strong relationship with Yinepu and Satet has always been around too.

Before my RPD, Amun-Ra made himself known to me.

Now my relationship with Dad (Yinepu) is still awesomely strong, there's no way I can doubt he hangs around.  He often brings other Netjer to talk to me too.

My relationship with Satet and Amun-Ra has grown stronger too.

I now also have a relationship with Set (who I believe is somewhere in my Husband's lineup), Sobek (who I think is in my daughter's line up, as Yinepu introduced me to him when I asked who is her parent Netjer) and Bast (who I think is in my son's lineup).

The Netjer also come to me to pass on messages to one of my KO friends.  I've met Nebt-het this way and communicated more with Set too.  This has all been happening in the last few weeks.

I am loving the greater presence I've been feeling!

Hello,

10 yrs ago, I had a strong relation with Set, Aset and Bastet.
Now my relationship is better with Djehuty, in Egypt, I felt the protection of sobek

Em hotep,

Before I joined KO, I had a long relationship with my mother Hethert. Bast became more present in my life few days before I decided to follow the beginner classes. Amun-Ra has a discreet presence. Bes appeared in my life from time to time, Seshat and the star Sopdet too. Hethert is the netjeret whose presence has the greatest impact on my life. She gave me birth in the kemetic faith while Bast introduces me in the kemetic orthodoxy.

Often I get a general feeling of who the particular Name is. If I don't, I will get a feeling of Gender or some other kind of indication in the right direction, that when I ask others, they can tell me.

Also, if in doubt, you can always ask - sometimes they just come right out and tell you Themselves.

Well, for me it has always started with a feeling of attraction to the god or something he or she is associated with, like an animal.  

For example, one time I was looking through a website selling statuary and Egyptian-themed house decor.  There was a statue of Khnum holding a shield and spear.  I felt really drawn to it and put it on my mental list of things to buy when I  get some money.  I thought nothing else of it until a while later, three or four months or so, I was reading a book in bed and was suddenly aware of a male entity who radiated calmness and benevolence, and smelled of cool water---like lake or river water.  He started talking about the art supplies under my bed that had laid there untouched for over a year, and said that he wanted me to make arts and crafts for him.  He didn't say his name but I knew who it was.

Long before I joined KO, I always had an interest with Yinepu. Always thought He was cool/awesome (He still is =P), and I have always been a dog lover.  Even after joining KO, I still have a strong connection to Him, though my focus is also just as strong with my beautiful mother Sekhmet, Who was the One who brought me to the KO and first came to me when I was overseas in Iraq many years ago.

A long time ago in a glaxy far away *insert music* xD

Before I joined the KO I had a connection to Heru-sa-Aset for a good few months, I was going through a bit of spiritual crisis and all of a sudden Heru showed up and I guess grabbed me by the collar and said "Here, take a look at this". Now there is less of a connection with him and ironically I've been getting a lot of vibes from Set. Both me and Laura (shadowlily) joke and say it's because we're both redheads.

Well, Nut kicked me in the rear and brought me here so I have much love for her. Incidentally, when I visited Egypt years ago, it's her image that I brought back.

Recently, Bast-Mut makes me smile. I've always loved Bast, but it's as if Bast-Mut is more 'right'. It's hard to explain.

I feel my strongest connections to both Seshat and Djehuty.

My personal interests have always been time, writing, books, lists and alphabetising (I think that one comes diretly from Seshat *LOL*) and ancient history so I have always felt that these Netjeru have always been by my side at one time or another :)

I also feel connections to Sopdet (Sirius) and Sah (Orion) (I suspect that they bring me guidance in my love of astronomy), as well as Bast (my love of cats), Isis (my interest in magick), Taweret (as part of my fertility altar)

[color:#CC33CC]I'm beginning to develop just 'something' for Set, other than respect, inclining toward admiration. Definitely looking for angle of view to see him as a very constructive force, even if a bit chaotic.

Or: Where's his fanclub, dammit *g*

Seems too me Taweret is sticking around too, more prominent since the time of the RPD, so I'm trying to figure out how she and Set match together to my experiences. Needed to say I feel warmth from Her and like the 'poke, poke, heere!' feel.[/color]

For me, Yinepu and Seth.  Two traditionally "dark" Nejeter, but the two I've always had the closest connection to (moreso now then ever before).  

But I tend to see them in different ways.  Seth feels more like a father or grandfather figure, older and more stern, while Yinepu seems more like a traditional lord, or superior (I don't know how else to put it).

Hotep everyone.
As I previously posted before I was getting very strong Set vibes, after going through the beginner's course I took some real personal time with him and got to further build on the relationship with him.

After realizing that he's always been just hanging around I started asking around about their UPGs and such.According to some certain people *cough cough* I have a number of certain traits that seem to run in the family..0.o

I've always felt kinship towards the Kemetic pantheon, however Set has always stood out. He literally likes to beat me into shape  when I need it. (I'm one of those people who needs hell unleashed to change my ways)And if I'm good, he's quite gentle, but he hates when I forget to spend time communing with him.

To me a bit strangely, Aset. I didn't have much, nearly none, experience with her before, it's always been Serqet for me. Even in days of being kind of 'mild', I could tell it's Serqet, not necessarily perceiving Aset as 'lighter' side of her.

It feels as understanding Serqet-Aset in more complexity, and even as the same initial feel stays and I'm far more close to Serqet side, it's been distinctively Aset on her own past some time around. So perhaps could restate, Serqet+ Aset.

Getting to know more 'aspects' of the same, as Tayet, is kind of mind boggling but oh whoa nice. ;)

I have strong connections with Yinepu, Sekhmet and Bast. They all were a big part of me getting through a tumultuous and emotionally trying childhood relatively unscathed. People (myself included) are surprised that I've come out as well adjusted as I have.

Once I was finally released from what was the worst situation of my life, I was terrified that They would leave me, but They've been around me since I was about 6 or 7 and didn't even fully comprehend who They were. Although lately, it seems like Yinepu is trying to muscle in on almost all my attention

Amun, Djehuty, Yinepu, as Grandfather, Father, and Big Brother type relationships, respectively. My relationship with Sobek is well..different. I hesitate to call it adversarial out of respect(and fear if I'm honest), and I love Him and I know He loves me, but it's definitely not the lovey dovey hugs all around type of relationship. The best way I can describe it is like that of a Master and pupil in martial arts training(think Pai Mei from Kill Bill). As a martial artist, he is my Divine Sensei, and because He is Divine, He is always faster, stronger, smarter, more powerful, better, and always as many steps ahead of me as He chooses, and because I vow to chase and spar and be beaten 100% of the time, I can always improve because perfection belongs only to Netjer.


This reminds me, can any of you please give me some insight on the Nit-Seshat-Nebt'Het connection as One Being or Aspects? I fear that I may have been worshiping Her as three by mistake. If She comes to me as One and not 3 simultaneously like I've been thinking I would like to be sure to worship appropriately or at least think properly. Could my connection with Djehuty, Yinepu, and Sobek be an indirect cause of Her or Them relating to me in a plural rather than singular fashion? Please help!

With Nebet Het-Nit-Seshat, it depends.  Sometimes people experience Her as Three in One (like three separate strands tided together in a knot) and sometimes the experience is only of Nebet Het or Nit or Seshat.  It just depends on people's personal relationship with Her.  

I personally get Nebet Het as only Nebet Het.  I've never really experienced the Three interwoven in One some people get.

I feel most connected with my Parents, Tefnut and Ra-Heruakhety, but I also have a strong relationship with Bast.  


Oooh, this was a while ago.

Lately, I've been experiencing a bit of a darknightofthesoul-y period, and my connection with Netjer has been wibbly-wobbly at most, concentrated in a couple of strong mystical experiences I occasionally get. It's been better for a couple of weeks now, and I'm so glad.

There is Mom, Who is larger than life, quite literally. Currently She's pretty distant, but I still feel Her influence in me. She comes and goes with the cosmic tides, that's how it's been and will be.

Theres Father, who's been around more. He demands very little of me, but He's adamant about me realizing and accepting my self-worth. He's King of the Heavens, and no Child of His is going to walk the Earth in self-pity or sense of worthlessness. He commands me to come to my full potential, and that is AWESOME.

Hethert is around. She's the one I pray to in the matters of Home and Heart, and I'm grateful to Her for the small joys of life. I experience Her with quite a hefty dose of Sekhmet-y danger, but with great love and comfort as well.

Set's come to my life very recently (not counting one experience almost a year ago). He forces me to face Myself and some truths about life I've avoided for a long time. He's gradually putting my self-image together by first tearing it to pieces. It's painful as hell, but I can feel how I'm already better for it. He's making me to Deal With It, and that's just what I need right now.

Definitely Heru. Which one? I'm leaning towards Heru-sa-Aset but there seem to be echoes of others there too, so I'm reluctant to pin it down. He seems to hang back and watch more than talking to me, but he never, ever, leaves.

I've also talked to Thoth, Anubis, and Set. (Forgive me for not being familiar with the other names yet.) I've also met Hethert, Sekhmet and Bast. The goddess I talked to while growing up might have been Aset. I'm not sure because I made up a name to call her.

I have to say, its really hard for me to choose who I feel closest to, as everyone seems on an even level of closeness at this moment.
However, the ones I seem to spend all my time talking random things at, or running to have a cry with is Ma'at and Bast.
Ma'at of course is very quiet, and often as form of communication she will leave me a feather to give me peace of mind.
Bast has been a little quiet.. but i beleive it is because i've been in such a bad mood recently that i've not been in the right frame of mind for proper communication, and i owe netjer several cups of tea and biscuits by now.

Sekhmet i love, but i want to get to know her better - when im feely ready - and my mood isnt having power over me

And Set i'd love a conversation with :D

I also would like to say hi to Yinepu :)  of course, there are lots i'd like to meet .. but I have a little to do list first lol

I know how you feel, I felt a strong connection with Bast, but my connection has gone down the pan... However I am working on this and taking it day by day and tbh it is getting better.

Without a doubt, Bast is the one I'm closest to. She has been Mother to be for nearly four years and my RPD was a wonderful confirmation along with the discovery of Heru-wer as a beloved alongside Yinepu. Yinepu is probably my second closest. I've dealt with a lot of death and since finding Him, He's been a amazing comfort and a guardian.
I'm really looking forward to getting to know Heru-wer though and finding out what He has in store for my life.

I wrote this pre-RPD, so it's fun to see if things change. And they have, a little.

I still feel most connected to Hethert, and now I have validation that She's my Momma. :) But even before my RPD, Set started to come forward, and make Himself known. One can't mistake Him, for sure, and I wasn't surprised when He showed up in my RPD. Now He's often around, not as "close" as Mom, but I definitely know He has my back.

I'm learning more about Bast-Mut, but I'd have to say, the closest is still Hethert - Set a very close second.

Right now, She and Ptah are the Netjeru I am closest with, but who knows when that might change. :]

I'm definitely closest to Aset. Of course being in the beginner's course, I'm focusing only on Netjer as a whole during Senut. I still feel Aset around and Her presence is definitely the strongest. I also honor Djehuty (currently have a novel in progress), Nut, Wesir, Het-Hert, and Set. Nebet-Het came to me before I even knew my uncle was going to die of colon cancer. She knew before I did! Her presence has since waned, but is nonetheless still hanging around. While I know for certain Aset will show up in my RPD and Set certainly might as well and maybe Nut, but everyone else, who knows? Only They do. I'm open to Anyone who might show up though.  :)

For me right now.. I feel closest to Nut. Set came into my life after christmas and have felt his presence stay since then. Others have come in like Bes, Serqet and Neith :)

Also I have been feeling Nefertem hanging around since studying Aromatherapy :D


Its funny reading this after since Serqet is my Mother :) Nit & Nefertem are my beloveds. *Squee!*

I'm still learning about many of the Netjeru but right off the bat I've felt connection with Ra (I know he has many names and I'm getting the idea that each have a differing aspect. if I'm wrong or if anyone has more info in layman's terms let me know. I'm starting the beginner's class.) Horus and Osiris.

At the moment I feel the most connected with Sobek-Ra and Hethert - which is strange, because for a while there, I didn't feel much of a connection with Netjer at all. It was actually when I was attempting to get to know Kuan Yin that I felt Sobek-Ra essentially tap me on the shoulder and say, "What about us?"   :whistle:

That's pretty much what Sobek did to me when we first met, after a long string of coincidences involving crocodiles and zoos. XD He pretty much turned up one day several years ago and said, "Oh, hai, that was me. I'm Sobek."

I haven't been able to get rid of Him since. ;)

Yeah, I've always loved crocodiles, ever since I was a kid. :D I've never held one though. Jealous. D: But we do have a 6m male saltwater croc at the Perth Zoo who I have named Sobek because that's where I first encountered Him. <3 (His name is actually Simmo, but I can see Sobek in his eyes.)

But Sobek's always been pretty laid back with me; Him being cheeky doesn't surprise me in the least. I experiencing Him being very sweet and cuddly and generally adorable. I only invoke Him as The Rager if I need protection.

I don't know if Sobek-Ra is the same though; I've heard He's more, well, Ra-like and formal than Sobek, from that one Sobek-Ra kid I met years back.

I feel like my Parents are the ones I feel closest to, Wepwawet and Bast. Before finding the House, I had dedicated myself to Bast for roughly 2 years. Wepwawet was late beginners class. I do have a relationship with Others, but mainly those in my RPD lineup. Sekhmet and Hethert both play rolls in my life too. Also, Da's connected "forms".

Em hotep!

Most days, its Dad.  I feel Him around almost all the time- He likes watching people, I think, especially when we're going about our daily lives.  He loves watching me play games.  However, Sekhmet is also around me frequently- usually prodding me to get something done.  Khnum hangs around when I'm drawing, which isn't often anymore (something I need to work on.)  Djehuty likes to read over my shoulder.  And every time I walk near Amun's shrine space, I catch His presence (which is often, as my shrine is currently in my bedroom because I have no room for it elsewhere.)

Set, Heru-Wer, Sobek, Montu . . . for whatever reason, very masculine Gods (usually of war, in some respect) Who are "strong with the law" are ever-present in my life. Or I am drawn to Them. Or both. Even with Amun-Ra, I don't get the "Wise Old King of the Gods" aspect of Him. I get the more youthful, beautiful, warlike, virile version of Amun-Ra. "The Dazzling Ram of Heaven" and "Lord of the Aurora," as I like to call Him. :3
 

I love Heket and Taweret, but I don't really feel like I have any deep connections with any of the Goddesses. At all. I still pay homage to the Great Ladies, absolutely, but I get a feeling of "We hear your praises and accept them, We love you and you love Us, but you belong more with the testosterone party over there." :P

Interesting, considering you were divined as a child of Yinepu in 2010.

Nothing saying though that you couldn't have gained Aset as a Beloved though. I'd perhaps get in touch with Hemet in regards to that, and maybe talk to one of the webmasters to get your old account restored.

I'm gun-shy with making real connections and frequently not in a mindspace to think about it because it goes south too quickly.  None of which surprises me, because I have the same dynamic with people.


To feature some of the odder ones though, I have a very warm spot for Nekhbet, and I totally get the ancient's thing of seeing vultures=mothers.  I had a mama turkey buzzard and her two roosting kids scare the hell out of me at a trailhead once, and to this day I think it was a protective omen trying to warn me about continuing, because it turns out the trail I took was absolutely *infested* with chiggers and I got eaten alive and suffered for weeks from taking it.  The overall impression of the bird and her family was very maternal, though, and they were roosting right beside the family camping area like she had an affinity to the atmosphere of the place.  Could've been Mut, too, I suppose, or any of the other queenly motherly chicks, but I didn't get very much queen or from it.  Just a flustered matronly bird who very astutely liked hanging out within eyeshot of a messy parking lot on an ill-lighted, well-trafficked rural road, and surreptitiously exploded out of the bushes in front of me on a trail I seriously regretted taking.

The lesson being WHEN VULTURES SHOW UP, QUIT AND GO HOME. :p

I got the book "Great Goddesses of Egypt" a few weeks ago & I'm looking forward to reading it to find out more.

Ever since my RPD, I have been very connected to Ra. I am still developing my relationship with Him, but I can definitely say that He has been very understanding and loving. I am so happy to have Him as a Father.

Initially, my greatest connection was with Bast. She led me to the House, and since my RPD has not had quite as much of a presence - but She is definitely still with me.

Post by: Taqerisenu on February 25, 2015, 10:04:21 pm
As a child (from ages 8 to 15, roughly), I connected most strongly to Bast, and then Sekhmet, as well. They lead me to the HoN, though circumstances meant that it was a long time indeed after initially finding the House, that I was able to join it.

As an adult my strongest connections have been, and are, to Heru (generally, Heru-Wer, specifically) and to Atum-Ra.

I also feel some draw to Khnum, Set, and Nebt-Het.

I hope to get to know many more Names better, as I spend time as part of the KO community.

Unfortunately I haven't yet really get to know any of the Netjer on too close of a level. Between personal hang-ups I still have about "worshiping properly" and my own hesitations, I've yet to sit down and really develop a personal one-on-one relationship with anyone. I do still pray and worship the Netjer, but as a whole. I figure that when the time is right for either me or Them, They will eventually show themselves when I'm ready.

That said there are still a couple I feel have stood out to me.

First is Het-Hert. She is the first and I still kind of believe only one who has really reached out and touched me personally. It was only once, and only for a short moment, but it was so undeniably her (probably on purpose, she probably knows I can be blind to obvious things at times!). She hasn't touched me since (at least not that I've noticed), but I've always remembered Her.

Second is Ra. Hard to explain but there is just something about Him that I feel drawn to. I haven't acted on it yet, but every time I think about Him there just seems to be something...different, something that makes Him stand out to me.

Lastly is Nebt-Het. Similar to Ra, but I have always felt drawn to Her, much more than anyone else. Before I even really knew anything about Her, and definitely before I knew anything about Kemeticism, I knew that She was special to me. I've tried to reach out to Her, but never felt a response. Even still I haven't felt pushed away or ignored, and I know She can be notoriously silent anyway. And it seems that the more silent She is, the more drawn to Her I become.

For me, it's my mothers Bast and Amunet, and of course, Set.  Set was the first to introduce himself in a crazy-intense "spiritual journey" thing, and I knew at that point he had claimed me somehow.  Bast and Amunet were always there even before I knew they were - Bast told me she was my mother in a series of vivid dreams, and Amunet just watched..she watched a lot!  They all seem to have their own ways of encouraging me, which I love! Especially since my RPD, I'm learning which communications are coming from Whom, and even when they aren't actively "talking", I can feel them around all the time.  I am never alone. :)

Wow.  Well, considering my upbringing, I had always felt and extremely strong connection with Yinepu-Wepwawet since I was a child.  My grandparents, as I've said in my profile were Armenian Apostolic by faith, but their mantle over the fireplace had statuettes from Egypt on opposite corners of Anubis and Bastet.  I'd always been drawn to the Occult, magick.....saw ghosts, HEARD them.

On the other hand, I also feel close to Sekhmet-Hethert, my Mother, because I have been drawn to medicine and was an EMT for twenty years.  Hethert and love...because I do love and love strongly, not only in personal relationships but those with whom I am acquainted.

I've always felt drawn to Djehuty, but Set has made himself known to be around from time to time, and I always try to praise Ra when I can see him. I've been trying to connect with more, but so far those are the ones I feel really drawn to.

I've always had an affinity for the sun and the daytime, so thinking back on it, it's not really any surprise to me that it was Ra who brought me here to this religion and has been with me ever since.

After determining to get to know the Herus a little bit better this winter, in the last week or two something's really clicked with Shu.  (Not so surprising considering my RL nickname is Breazy.) It's a new obsession and I'm really looking forward to learning and working with them all more.  Yay, flavor of the summer!

These days I feel more connected to Renentut and Auset. As such I do not see why I can't simply be a divined Remetj?

Em hotep PahauAuset,

Divined Remetj implies that you have accepted your RPD, but do not wish to commit to being Shemsu.

Being divined and not accepting the results is also fine, you would just be considered a Remetj, not a divined Remetj. 

I hope that helps.

Em Hotep,

I've alwasy felt drawn to Bast, Sekhmet, Anubis, and Ra. But lately i've been taken guidance from Nut, and Amun ( that was weird) during my last Senut. I had an image of Amun flash before me. While the name on this forum is just the Egpytian equilvant of my given name, i've never had a connection with Amun untill that day.

But my heart is open to listen too all Netjer. So while it may be confusing about who is talking at a certain time, i know that my question will have an answer. In time.

I've always felt incredibly drawn to Anubis, and to a lesser degree and more recently Djehuty and Tefnut!  However, as I read more into Kemeticism, I'm really trying to broaden my horizons and open myself to the possibilities of being connected to more of the Netjeru.

Chiefly Yinepu, 100%. He has been a deep interest of mine ever since I was very young and just starting to learn about ancient Egypt in school. I never let Him leave my mind as I grew older, and He is the one who led me on the path of KO. I'm forever grateful for that. :)

Recently, I'm also taking notice of Sekhmet, Sobek, and Set as well. I feel as if I've had each of Them approach me in shrine during different points of my practice and I'd love to get to know each of Them more, especially Sekhmet.

For me I feel the strongest connection with Set and Heru-wer.  I also am close with Djehuty as well and His daughter Seshat.  It feels like Geb and Nut are also there as well.  Though I have been trying to broaden my horizon with the Netjeru and another that has popped in is Sekhmet, and I've always been a fan of Bastet she's also the one that led me to KO.
Title: Re: Which Netjeru do you feel most connected with?
Post by: Sema'a on January 25, 2016, 11:08:42 am
I'm very close with my Parents, Wepwawet and Sekhmet-Mut, which is probably pretty obvious. However - I've always been pretty close with Them, even prior to my RPD; Wepwawet is the one I "met" when I first became Kemetic, and my Mother came along shortly after.

I'm less close with my Beloveds (Bast, Nut, and Khonsu) but still connected. Prior to coming to the House, I connected with Nut and Khonsu; I was actually standoffish with Bast, but came to know Her better after my divination. Khonsu wasn't originally in my RPD, but I've been close with Him for quite some time anyway.

Outside my RPD, I am close with Yinepu, Nebthet, and Hethert.

Bast, always Bast. She has always been in my life. Wepwawet-Yinepu and I have been growing closer over the years and Set and I have a cold sort of respect for each other.
Title: Re: Which Netjeru do you feel most connected with?
Post by: Tashepsut on February 15, 2016, 10:17:43 am
Yinepu I'll always feel closest to I predict. He's become quieter to give me a chance to connect with Bast but I still feel most at ease with Him. He's so easy to talk to and I feel like I can be "casual" and joke around as if He was a brother or some crazy uncle. I constantly have new things to learn and new paths to forge or follow and I feel like Yinepu is there for each new experience I gain.

Of course I love Taweret and my Mother but it's not the same ease of communication and it's harder to tell if They are happy with the choices I make. Ra as well is kind of an enigma. I feel like He wants something from me but it usually turns in to me buying Him stuff  and I don't think that is necessarily what He was going for. Sekhmet also pops into my thoughts a lot. It's really strange but She's been very prominent lately.

I've always been attracted to Bast and always had an icon of her since I was little, although I've never done a very good job of forming a bond with her sadly.  As an artist I've also been attracted to Khnum.

The strongest and quickest connection I've had was with Ra.  Hoping to work on redeveloping that in the future

I feel a very strong pull towards Set. I'm trying to get to know more (Bast, Yinepu, maybe Heru-wer), but I can't say many actively grab my attention like He does.

I'm new, though, so I can't say I'm very close to any of Them.

Djehuty and Yinepu have had my attention for several years; now that I've found my way back to paganism of some flavor or another (likely eclectic forever), They're the Ones who've called me most strongly.

However.

Cue the realization of an existential crisis and boom, Set's shown up. No warning. Just... there He is. And I'm slowly understanding why and beginning to really enjoy His presence. :) Which is funny, I guess, because we're polar opposites, Set and I (and likely why I have so much to learn from Him!)

I've felt connected to Djehuty since I saw a picture of him when I was younger and did some research on him, although I do feel a slight calling to Seshat as well but that only started after joining the House and learning about her. I am and always have been a cat person too so Bast is kind of close to my heart, if only because of my cats.

Post by: Nehwen on August 16, 2016, 01:29:58 pm
It's interesting to find this thread again after several years.  My first impulse is to say that I am still closest to Bast, my "first" Beloved (I'm Sat Bast her Serqet-Aset).  My two cats are uncanny in ways I cannot explain, even for being cats.  Schnapps practically materializes out of thin air next to me if I'm getting upset/depressed about something, and Keke has the most accurate instincts about people I have ever seen in any animal.  And sometimes there's something in their expressions that's just...not quite feline.  I truly believe the Lady works through them.  It sounds crazy, I know, but there you are.

However.  If you get me outside, particularly among trees or farm fields--and especially in a forest in the autumn--I am the happiest Nehwen you ever did see, so I can't dismiss Wesir out of hand.  I'd have to say He's more...low-level always there.  Bast is obvious.  My Father is just there.  And I think I know that, even when I'm at my most stubborn.

Hopefully something I wrote made sense.

I think I've always felt closest to my Father Heru-sa-Aset, though it wasn't till recently last year that I really started to feel Him more and more.  He, along with His sister Bast are the ones that led me to KO.  But I'm pretty close with most of my lineup especially Heru-sa and Set.  The only one of my lineup I haven't really felt much from is my Beloved Nut, just that She does have a very loving, grandmotherly way about Her whenever I think about Her and that She is always there when I need Her.  Of course I feel that from all of my lineup.

At the time I wasn't sure what it meant but as I got older I found my way to Wicca and then found my way here. I've loved graveyards since I could remember, they make me feel at peace and welcomed. And I have spoken with spirits since I was young as well.

I would say Sobek, because he was the one who led me to kemeticism and KO and I've pretty much maintained a relationship with him ever since, but also the Bawy/Set and Heru-Wer seem to have a direct line to the emotional center of my brain, so they're up there on the list, too.

However, Heru-sa-Aset was always there. We two have a deep connection and he was the one who helped me pulling myself out of misery and pain on some days.

I also have a deeper connection with Yinepu, he has been gone for a while but recently popped in. I never thought he would come back after I broke his statue (it was only the was-scepter but still..) :-\

Set, Heru-Wer, Sobek, Montu . . . for whatever reason, very masculine Gods (usually of war, in some respect) Who are "strong with the law" are ever-present in my life. Or I am drawn to Them. Or both. Even with Amun-Ra, I don't get the "Wise Old King of the Gods" aspect of Him. I get the more youthful, beautiful, warlike, virile version of Amun-Ra. "The Dazzling Ram of Heaven" and "Lord of the Aurora," as I like to call Him. :3
 

I love Heket and Taweret, but I don't really feel like I have any deep connections with any of the Goddesses. At all. I still pay homage to the Great Ladies, absolutely, but I get a feeling of "We hear your praises and accept them, We love you and you love Us, but you belong more with the testosterone party over there." :P

It's fun to look back on this thread and see how much has changed since the year I joined the Temple, and how much has stayed the same over the years. :)

Some worship-relations were confirmed and reaffirmed (i.e., Set as my "First Father," Amun-Re-Banebdjedet as the second and "Great Father," Heru-Wer as a Beloved, Herishef as a Beloved, etc.). Some Netjeru receded into the background completely (like Montu). Some remain persistently-strong presences despite no "official" divination-confirmation of any kind (i.e., Sobek). Some exploded into the epicenter of my personal religious observances (namely, the Egyptianized Levantine Gods, Who were "there" before my RPD but are now even MORE "there" since having it done). And, I have since come to learn that I am nowhere near as "Netjeret-aloof" -- and They were nowhere near being aloof of me -- as I once believed I was, when I first committed to being part of the Kemetic Orthodox community as a Remetj all those years ago. :)

My religious life had all at once become more focused, more stable, and more prolific since I had my RPD, and then had the Beloved Divination for Yinepu(-Wepwawet) the following year.

Not that I ever believed otherwise, but, looking back on what I said in 2012, it impresses upon me how, even when one "knows what one is doing" and when one has come into a much greater and much more secure sense of direction, one's religious life doesn't simply plateau and remain unchanged after hitting a certain religious milestone or another. It's a kind of living thing that, even given the presence of some constants and some unalterable certainties, will continue to grow and change. :)

Djehuty and Yinepu have had my attention for several years . . . They're the Ones who've called me most strongly.

However.

Cue the realization of an existential crisis and boom, Set's shown up. No warning. Just... there He is. And I'm slowly understanding why and beginning to really enjoy His presence. :) Which is funny, I guess, because we're polar opposites, Set and I(and likely why I have so much to learn from Him!)

"Polar opposites"? Ahahaha!!!

*snickers*

I knew so little back then. ;)

Thanks for giving me the idea to look back at my own post, Sedjfai!

Nowadays, I'm still closest to Papa Set. Ptah and Mama Sekhmet are "tied" for second, albeit for different reasons--there's a different kind of closeness I have with Each of Them. I think I'll become closer with Djehuty when I start writing on a regular basis again, or if I get into grad school; for the moment, (W)we're not as close as (W)we once were. And Yinepu, meanwhile, stepped back the closer I got to my RPD. When I wrote that post, He was there for a very distinct reason, and now that reason doesn't exist. Still. He was a wonderful friend and guide to have, just the same.

Heru-Wer I'm still learning much about. ^_^ I've rarely had experiences with Him separate from Papa.

So, so interesting to read this thread! Thank you all for sharing!

Senebty,
Gezausenu.

It feels like the Netjeru I'm closest to seems to change every so often. At first, it was Yinepu, then it became Aset about a year after that, then Hethert showed up a couple more years down the line and I began to share my love between the two of them...

But just recently, Djehuty and Seshat both showed up and I really connected with them? I'm not sure if I'm necessarily closer to them right now than I am with Aset and Hethert, but I'm feeling a WAY strong connection to them at the moment!

Yinepu/Wepwawet, since I was 18 (a few years ago LOL), he was present when I died and came back. I started working with Him in earnest in 2010/11 when He started reaching out in my dreams. He has taught me many, many things; saved my life twice, and been there for me in so many ways since then.

A few years ago, He told me to "Go with Heru", which I did, and I'm learning just how much of an influence He has had on my life from the beginning. He, and Sekhmet.

Sekhmet came to me in 2012, via a dream, telling me "I can help you". I worked with Her on and off since then...and am now learning how much both She and Heru Sa Aset have acted in tandem throughout my life.

While Yinepu/Wepwawet has had His roles and His overriding influence, after I got my RPD last month, I've begun to see how Sekhmet and Heru Sa Aset have been right there all along. It is as if Yinepu has orchestrated a complex continuing series of events where He is the overriding main character with Sekhmet and Heru Sa Aset having supporting roles at first, unknown to me largely, but then coming in with many more influences than I realized.

Full edit for this post as I just realized something.

All of my life I have encountered Heru-wer, mostly as a form of external warmth. Before I became Kemetic Orthodox, I was trying to worship Apollo as he had that same warmth and was the only one who seemed to respond to me out of the Theoi. I'm now starting to realize my misinterpretation of Heru-wer as Apollo (worth noting is that the Greeks also identified Heru-wer with Apollo and vice versa). It was always Heru-wer and now I feel like I'm being laughed at in a good-natured manner.

I feel my strongest connections to Heru-wer & Set, of course.

Edit: Of course, they're both my Dads.

(Addendum: I apologize in advance for how long this is... I suppose I just talked out my chaotic thoughts that needed sorting.. )

Em hotep!

It's a neat idea to log my current and past experiences here like a time machine so that I can compare my now to my then.

A note to make before I start is that my family (both my mom's and dad's) lived in Egypt for over 8 years, and I was close to being able to call Egypt my birthplace. Too bad that my family's military career drug them back to the US before I could! My birthname is Caira, in honor of ny family's time spent in Egypt before I was born (my parents met and wed there, etc.).

(I'm trans, and the above is my deadname, so this is really hard for me to talk about and I maaaaaay have to edit this post to cross that name out, just so we're on the same page.)

Growing up, I was fascinated with Ancient Egypt and the Netjeru. I was fixated on both Bast and Anpu, but I researched as many Others as I could. Over time, I grew "out" of the fixation, and the Netjeru took a backseat in my life, up until I entered the Pagan community and stumbled upon KO and Kemeticism in general.

Bast stepped forward to claim me and gently guided me towards Kemeticism a few years ago. She's been so ginger in Her handling of me and patient with where I'm at. I'm so grateful to Her. I wouldn't be surprised if She ended up being a Parent or a Beloved. A little while ago, She again stepped back to allow Others to come forth.

I made a place on my shrine for Anpu (with a stone carving of His head, actually bought in Egypt decades ago...), but the most communication I get with Him is a very small nod, after which He returns to His other business. I don't begrudge Him this; He has much to do. I still want to honor Him for His having guided me to Kemeticism.

Set has been around for a few years, even though I do have memories of being compelled to thoroughly research Him and His Beast when I was a teenager (I was very interested in cryptozoology- still am!). At first, I usually summarized His role in my life as brother, but now, I'm wondering if maybe He is more interested in taking on the role of Father.

Sekhmet stepped up after Bast bowed out, and took the reins up with a strength that I have never felt before. Her power is just so raw, so life-giving, so unrelenting, yet so rejuvenating and calming at the same time. I know that our relationship has been short, but Her love for me is so tangible and intoxicating that it's incredibly easy for me to declare that She's definitely my Parent, 100%, every One Else out of the way, Sekhmet is my One and All! Anyway, She is the One who guided me back to KO. I had put on blinders to it because I disagreed with a few of KO's teachings, but She is not-so-kindly ripping the blinders off and encouraging me to study, research, and actually question why I disagree with KO's teachings, without any input from my preconceived notions about the Nisut and the House.

Other Netjeru I am interested in establishing relationships with are Serqet, Aset, Khnum, Mafdet, Sobek, Hapi, Ra, Wadjet, Hethert, Ma'ahes, the Herus, and Others that slip my mind at the moment.

I'm impatiently awaiting the next beginner's class (I've submitted my application) and so I spend my free time for now studying about the Netjeru, Their mythology, the Nisut, offerings, Senut, and the like. I've studied Kemeticism for a while now, and have used the Nisut's prayerbook to practice Senut and the like. I have once again refreshed myself on KO's teachings through Devo's blogs, the House guest forums, etc., and am finally open to learning all I can about KO, without my flippant hand-waving away what I didn't agree with.

I'm sorry that got so long! I'm grateful for the forums to be able to communicate my thoughts on spirituality for once.

Senebty!

Em hotep all,

I'm not sure if I posted on this thread (and I didn't go back and read the prior 17 pages).

I'm most drawn to Yinepu, Amun, Bast, Aset, Hethert, and Set (in that order).  I have a soft spot for Heru Sa Aset as he helped me get my little house, the job and all of the things I wanted so that I could give more time to the House of Netjer in the future.  To cut to the chase though ..my heart belongs to Daddy with the big Jackal head.

I've been here going on 20 years now ...I couldn't imagine me not being Kemetic Orthodox after all these years.  I will love and honor and serve not only the House of Netjer but the Egyptian gods and goddesses to my last dying breath.  :)

But lately, it's been Khepra whose been in my life. Lighting things up and acting as a source of inspiration and healing. I've been going through some changes in my life, some endings and some beginnings.

So he's been appearing rather spectacularly in meditation.

Em hotep!

Yinepu and Wepwawet for sure are the Names I feel closest to!

 Yinepu I’ve felt drawn to since I was very young (say, 10?). His association with death and the afterlife has always held my attention; it may be a smidgen morbid, but it’s always been a fascinating topic for me! If I were in a more populated state, I’d have gone to mortuary school, to become a mortician. However, I don’t do well with the grieving, and my state is small, so I’d have to also work with the families, and that wasn’t something I felt I could do. Instead, my interest in Yinepu’s “realm” has turned to taxidermy! I collect bones, skulls, and skins!

Wepwawet is a bit of a new face for me, though. I suppose His ability to synchronize with/share attributes with Yinepu is probably why I feel drawn to Him. He’s also been very kind and helpful to me whenever I’ve prayed to Him! And helps to keep me motivated to reach my goals! I dunno, there’s definitely something about Him that draws me, but I can’t put my finger on it yet.

But yea!

Senebty!

Truth be told, I don't think I'm "close" to any of them yet. Definitely not Their doing of course, I just haven't been able to truly get to know Them until fairly recently.

That said, there are a couple I'm personally drawn to - incidentally, all of them are related to my work.

The first would be Serqet. "She who causes the throat to breathe" and "She who gives breath". In my daily life, by profession...that's kinda me too. I'm a respiratory therapist, so my whole job, and much of what I have dedicated my life to, is essentially giving breath to others. Be it helping them to breathe easier, or putting a tube down their throat (or through their throat) to literally breathe for them, giving other people breaths is what I do! Naturally, since the moment I learned of Her I've been incredibly drawn to Her.

Next would be the sisters, Nebt-Het and Aset. I mention Nebt-Het first only because, before I even came to the HoN and enrolled in the beginners class, I was always drawn to her. I can't quite put my finger on what it is specifically, but there's something about the mystery surrounding Her that seems to draw me in.

As for the both of them, a little while ago I was reading a post by Hemet (AUS) about a picture of Them both, with Aset at the feet of a mother ready to help her with delivering a baby, and Nebt-Het behind the mother's head, ready if something goes wrong. Once again, from this I drew huge parallels back to my own life. Just recently, I actually started working in Labor and Delivery. I stand at the feet of the mother, ready to receive the baby and resuscitate them should they need it. At the same time I also have my eye on the mother herself, because again, should something go wrong I'm there to jump in. I suppose the difference in that case though is that I'm specifically trying to prevent the mother from being taken away by Nebt-Het, but hey, details right?

And lastly, an honorable mention goes to Hethert, because even though I've never formally worshiped Her (which is my own shortcoming), She is still the only Netjer thus far who I feel has truly reached out and interacted with me. Or maybe it's that others have, but She was the only one to make it blatantly obvious lol

I'm not sure what the Netjer have in store for me in the future, who I'll end up with or who among Them will take an interest in me, but I do know that wherever I end up at least it will be quite the experience :)

Post by: SpaghettiYeti on August 01, 2018, 12:32:29 am
I've been a little hesitant to respond to this thread because I have not had my RPD done, but there is one Name who I just can't help myself from calling "Mama". I'll probably stop calling her that if she does not appear as my parent, but I'd be floored if she didn't show up at all when that time comes.

It started with a vague feeling of someone around, and I followed the trail of breadcrumbs and found Het-Hert. There are many names that I work with, such as Sekhmet, Kephra, Aset, and so forth, but no matter what work I do, I feel like Het-Hert is always an underlying support. She's always around the corner with some new surprise, it seems. Even when I work outside of Netjer, as with Loki, there are times where I feel her eyes on me.

I do believe there was a moment in my childhood that contributes to this. I suddenly felt like I had a very important question to answer, and that I must choose one path among three things: love, knowledge, and power. As a child, I immediately disregarded power because of how it corrupts. I pondered on knowledge, but decided that if it meant being alone to pursue it, it wouldn't be all that great. So I chose love, even though it could absolutely destroy me. It was like something in the universe clicked and solidified, and then everything went back to normal. Looking back on this now, considering I was so young and the memory of that moment is so vivid, I do believe that something about that question was from an outside, probably divine source, and that it dictated parts of the events that occurred in my life after that.

Post by: Ushedimuti on August 01, 2018, 04:11:31 pm
It's been just over two years since I last posted in this thread, so I guess update time!

Things have changed, but also stayed the same.

I am incredibly close to Set. He is my Beloved, the first Netjeru that really put Himself in my life. He has taught me how to be myself again after so much hurt in my life. He is not a Set of inflicting chaos or destruction, or breaking things down, but of learning to build up again, to rise out of the chaos, and overcome obstacles. I have relearned to drive, learned to survive some horrible things, learned how tough I can be, and if I ever forget my own strength, I always have Him to lean back on and remember. At the same time, I also have been learning my limits, and that it is good to have them. Push them if I need to, yes, but also to have the strength and courage to say no and no more! To set my boundaries, and not let anyone take advantage of them anymore. He has been incredibly healing for me.

My Mothers, Sekhmet and Mafdet, I have also grown close to. I have a different but similar bond with Them.

I have a feeling that Sekhmet came into my life as another god for a while. She has indicated to me that She was there without me knowing, and has been very proud about how much I've been advocating for my own health this year -- battling chronic pain and mental illnesses. Under Her watchful eye and Set's gentle tutelage, I have grown so much. Sekhmet has taught me that Love and Compassion and Empathy are the greatest gifts I can give, to myself and to others. And that yes, sometimes those things come out very fiery, and the need to stand up for others and speak Ma'at. She for me comes as a Lady of Appropriate Action a lot (and Mafdet overlaps that), but also a Lady of Compassion and a Lady of Love.

Mafdet I adore dearly, but She is very, very quiet. Sometimes Her voice and sensations are drowned out by Sekhmet and Set, but She is always there if I reach for Her specifically. She understands the need for precise action as opposed to Sekhmet's broad way of approaching things. I am still working on getting to know Her, but I find that She's just keen to sit back in the shadows and watch things.

Wesir I've been getting closer too lately, too. He came into my life just over a year ago, and has stuck around. He has taught me that I can grow, sprout, reach for the sun. Let the dead leaves fall away and grow new ones. If Set has taught me to survive, Wesir has taught me to thrive. That I can be and do more even as I heal and grow. Sekhmet and Mafdet overlap, and Set and Wesir tend to compliment each other.

I've been slowly meeting and developing relationships with other Netjeru, but those are the closest to me.

I have a feeling that Sekhmet came into my life as another god for a while.

I experienced something similar with Set, although I didn't perceive him as a god at the time I initially experienced him -- he was more of an image of strength, and endurance, and triumph in the face of unrelenting evil.  But in the past few months I had an experience of Set with that exact same image, and I recognized then that he'd come to me over a year before, in one of my darkest hours.  And I am very grateful to him for that.

I had my RPD in 2001. Since before I joined HoN it was and always has been Aset.  I've also always had some connection to NebtHet. Several years ago (circa 2006/7) She named me as Keeper of the Akhu in my family. Something I have taken very seriously ever since. I also feel very close to Heru-Wer and Bes and I have this connection thing going on. He will always show me BES license plates and then "send" songs to me via the radio or playlist I'm listening to. It's really cool.

Sekhmet has poked me recently and I have no idea why, but She's cool so I'm working on connecting to Her in a meaningful way. I added Her to my Shrine and She keeps turning to look the way that my Aset and NebtHet statues look.

The Ma'ati have come into my life very recently. This is definitely a work in progress and I'm eager to learn what They want of me and how They fit into my life.

Me too, since the beginning. From as far back as I can remember, it has always been Him. I am now connected to Heru Sa Aset and Sekhmet-Hethert, Who are Beloveds...with Yinepu-Wepwawet as my Father(s). There are many additional connections, such as Heru wer, Heru Behdety, Set, Djehuty, Ptah, Ra, Kephera, Aset, Nebthet and Sed-Yinepu-Wepwawet,  but They are my main ones.

Post-RPD I've got a strong connection with Hethert-Sekhmet in all Her forms, and my papa, Khonsu. I never really interacted with Khonsu before RPD, but I've always been someone who LOVES the moon c:

Hi there. I'm pretty new to the forums and just completed the beginners class but I've had some experiences lately that keep drawing me to Yinepu. I've heard his name just ... At random. It comes to mind.

And last night I had really intense visions/memories/something while meditating (which I rarely get!) that felt connected to him. Couldn't sleep all night and I felt compelled to read the forums and all over the internet to learn about him and other Netjeru.

Still finding my way but it feels very significant (and unexpected) to me.

Post by: jasper on June 05, 2019, 03:48:13 pm
Before the Beginner's class, when I was guiding my own practice, I primarily worshipped Djehuty and Yinepu, and I'd often refer to Yinepu like a father :")

Being advised to not focus in too hard on any particular Netjeru while I'm still learning has been a really positive experience for me, though, since I was previously worried about not having either of them show up in my RPD. Now, even though I still feel that connection to them, I feel as though I'd be happy with any result when I eventually get to that point.

I still credit my reasoning for finally deciding to sign up for the beginner's class to the two of them, though- it definitely felt like they were pushing me toward KO.
