Em Hotep Julia! 

I was just complimenting Neheh on her work in needlepoint on the Discord server, I think yesterday, and she was showing off her design for yours.  I loved it, of course!  At the time I didn't realize you were around now!  It gives me great joy to give you my compliments personally, and a much-belated welcome!

Enjoy, Siofra! 

I am a former-Christian as well, and went through many iterations before I found my way here.  I think you'll find yourself pretty well happy with this part of your journey!

Em hotep and welcome!!

Hello! Southern New Hampshire (US) resident here. While I have not officially applied (soon), the admins were nice enough to grant me access while I read up and did my research. I've been practicing on my own for quite awhile. It's always been good enough for me. But with the pandemic, and all the doubt it brings, I feel I can do better with my path. Happy to be here, and I look forward to taking the next class.

This is all I have so far, but I have a silver-coated jackal headed statue coming from Egypt that will be an icon for Wepwawet and will also be making some.

I love those beautiful green ceramic vessels!

It's a beautiful work in progress!! It's hard to find stuff that just works, isn't it?

I love the desk you are using for your shrine Nawosru!

And I will add we do have a naos builder in the House as well: Khaiptah.

Funny thing about that desk, by the way. That was formerly my reed-making desk - I’m a bassoonist.. and it was slated to get donated or sold when I’d moved my tools to a different bench, and it’s been sitting in the “drive in the donations” hallway for literally a year.  I was pondering, pondering, pondering, what to do for a shrine space, as I’d decided I wanted something with a gradine like that, and three, four days ago, boom.  It hit me:  Netjer gifted me with.. a thing that I already had, that I didn’t have to spend any money on.. better though, that it was connected, with prior use, to my favorite calling, music.  I love it when those synchronicities, those little gifts happen.

Beautiful shrine, Nawosru!  I can feel the love in it.

Senebty,
Neheh...
Em hotep Neheh!

In my exit interview from my beginner class, I was told that if and when I elected to go through RPD, it would be a changing thing, it would be A Big Deal.  It was, it was tremendously affirming, but also added so many questions and so much wonder.. but also love, because I was floored by the things I learned.

What you’re seeing there is me, BARELY, sorta, crudely, trying to echo out some of that love. :). Thank you, I appreciate the compliment, I know I’m on the right track if you see that love!

Senebty,

—N

Yaaaay!  But if Khaiptah does it then I won’t have a pretext to get in deeply over my head and have too many additional hobbies?

In all seriousness, I love love love how much talent the house is endowed with.  There is so much talent, so much good here!  And that keeping-it-in-the-family ethos is very nice.  If I were smart, I’d find somebody to do it for me, or teach me.

Here is one of my many shrine altars...

Welcome!!

And that’s gorgeous!  Where did you get your naos?

Thank you!  It is custom made  ;)


It's so beautiful!!  Eventually I want to go there, but right now I'm dealing with bought instead of designed/made stuff!!  Are the texts on it valid texts, or are the hieroglyphs decorative?  It's ridiculously detailed and beautiful, it's truly a gift and exaltation of Netjer!

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / My Foremost Shrine!

Now that I know my parents.. I'm work in progress on my shrine stuff. :)

I have two shrines right now, working on a third, and designing a fourth..

The one I'm working on right now is The Big One.  I have a rough time making perfect ritual purity every single day. That said, I believe that since I'm not a priest, Doing My Best on purity, but doing Senut very often, is better than doing it seldom.. so I have my akhu shrine and I have my "just do it" shrine where I visit netjer every day, which have been in place since I was a beginner.

I'm still designing a travel shrine.. but the one I'm working on right now is the over the top, the big one, the love fest for my parents and beloveds for Senut opportunities when I can do maximum ritual purity, maximum concentration, and the best of offerings.

I'm super excited.  I know it's pretty western-accented, but it's the tradition I came from, and I feel like we're doing all right so far! I can talk about where stuff came from, and what my ideas were all about, and where I'm going for it in the future.  As you can see, it's not anywhere near done.  I have no linens, I haven't decorated any of the statues, and I haven't decorated anywhere around it.. but .. this.  This is the one right now. :) It's not ready for use, but it feels so right, and I'm fairly well giddy for the gift to Netjer that it is.

So anyhow.  Work in progress.  LOTS to do on this.

But here we go!
