Just wanted to note that I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the idea of having to give my partner's information or my real address(especially since I'm likely to be moving in a month or two) for the 'course'

Yes, we offer a free course to anyone who's interested in learning more about how we worship. The course runs for several months; we're just in the middle of one now, so the next one will probably start in late December. If you're interested, you can apply here: https://www.kemet.org/join. Note that although the application speaks about conversion, there's no obligation to join the House of Netjer at any point; the course is purely informational.

Thanks!
I'm always down to learn about opinions, beliefs and all that sort of stuff so I'll definitely check it out.
Being free doesn't hurt either.
Guess I got 4 days to really consider it though :P

Thank you all for the kind welcome, I look forward to learning!

Hi folks,

So my coming here is a weird story, I'll get right to it I guess(There's more background/orbiting info if you really care or want to ask for it.)

So, I'm a paid GM; someone who runs tabletop RPG's for people(effectively a streamer + author).
About 2-3 months ago I joined a discord group that was sharing rpg files. I joked that Thoth(I know, give me some time xD) Would make a great patron for the group, as it was about sharing knowledge and creating and exploring worlds and stories etc etc. So much so that whenever I sent someone something, and they thanked me. I'd answer with "Praise Thoth" instead of "You're Welcome". After a couple weeks of this, I started having slightly intrusive daydreams of exploring a beautiful and endless library and meeting with a librarian who only ever said "Would you like to come back again?" before I snapped back to reality.

Curious about this, I searched online and found my way to another forum similar in concept to this one. I was advised to try and reach out to Djehuty(it was at this point I was informed of his name proper). Which I did.

I didn't get much in terms of response. Using dice to try and get answers as my brain has a tendency to be too busy. Almost all the time I have a dozen thoughts racing around up there and it makes it difficult to go quiet. The dice seemed to imply he was listening, he was responding. So I tried talking to him more, fumbled through offerings and stuff, but nothing really seemed to grab me as "working", and eventually I went silent on the dice. Not that the dice went silent, I did. It's only been a couple months and I dropped the act of attempting to reach out like a fad.

But, I did write a short story at one point for him, and have tried to be quite consistent with an offering each morning of writing "Dua Djehuty" in a notebook for him. I've felt that maybe he is there, maybe, because some days when I just take a breather by the shrine after spilling the ink, I'll have really good and easy sessions at work.

Far more recently(i.e. it ended 2 days ago), the discord server I mentioned above, was taken down. In the attempt to rebuild, there was a lot of friction and emotional turmoil etc that led to half the staff leaving. I tried my best to keep everyone together, keep everything civil etc. It felt like weeks of it. I was frantic about how everyone who was waiting for the server would be reacting, was terrified of people leaving etc. but still I somehow was keeping a level head and was mediating as best I could. While it felt like weeks, it apparently was only like, 5 days. On the last night, I forced myself to go to sleep amid a panic attack.

The next day, when everyone assured me everything was okay and I should just relax; I had a sudden and almost violent inspiration to jump into minecraft and start building. I started building a big library, with the symbol of Seshat in the floor. While gathering resources in survival, a dull task, I found myself waiting for the cows to grow up so I could get more leather etc etc. In my bored, lazy state, I noticed the name of this forum sticking in my head. I don't know what brought it up. I also know it wasn't thrown into my brain wholesale, because while waiting for my application to be approved, I looked through the threads and found that this is where I got the idea to write "dua Djehuty" as an ink spilling ritual.

Guessing I was being pointed here, I signed up. So here I am. Figured I'd put it all there because 1) I needed to get it out, and 2) it seems relevant to my being here.

So um, Hi? Any advice?/ Any idea why I was pointed here in particular?
