I think it would really depend on your situation who you'd want to go to for help. For instance, really stuck in a situation and need to desperately break free? Appealing to Seth might be your best bet. Need help dealing with an estate? Nebthet is probably more likely to help you there. Those are the ones I know offhand. For instance, I had some help moving into my new apartment, the move was nuts but it was the kind of chaos that benefits you in the long run. So uh, choose wisely?...

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Year 22 Shrine Pictures.
« on: August 09, 2014, 09:25:54 am »
These are all super beautiful. Someday I'll take pictures of my shrines but for now I'll just admire the view.

Arefsenu, what are those little glowing cubes? They are -super- cool. Are they battery powered or do they have wires I'm not seeing? I love them!

Brea, I had a problem with a low bookshelf getting a bit scorched. I do a test with my hand and hold it high over the mini candles I use to see what kind of damage it does. Most bookshelves can be adjusted to be high enough scorching won't occur. And if your incense is good quality, it won't leave too much of a residue. Sakura incense and the like leaves almost no smoke residue at all.

I thought I was hearing from Yinepu but then it appeared the one who is gray is Wepwawet and I definitely saw a gray jackal which caused me some confusion at first! I had no idea there were two for the longest time.  

'Close the doors that harm us' that's been very relevant for me Sobesquenu and a great way to put it. I was really surprised how sort of relaxed in a way he is, Bezenwepwy. Really colloquial and conversational, if that makes sense. And made a good case for his point of view.

Wow.

That backs up some of what I experienced. I really don't know if I'm experiencing Amun-Min or Min but thank-you for the offering tips, I wasn't quite sure what what was appropriate and had to rely on the Wepwawet wiki.

His advice was on the one hand humorous and on the other very wise, so that relates well. Perhaps offering to Min specifically is why I also felt a lot of red energy gathering in my pelvis? I also feel this with Seth. I can only really describe it as condensed eros, which sounds really weird but I have no idea what else to call it (in polite company).

That is a really lovely description of Amun-Min and lends me a more complete picture of Min, thank-you so much for talking about Him.

Yes, I noticed that in readings. Though the multi-faceted aspects of pretty much everything AE related are pretty interesting.

I found a reference to Neith also wearing Min's phallus, so the creation aspects are strong with these associations.

Thanks.

Has anyone ever had experiences with the God Min?

I was working on associations for the four quarters and got an 'over here' for the East. The creator God Min was associated with that direction apparently. I can't find a whole lot of information on him that isn't well..shock and applause concerning his statuary.

If you're wondering why, his wikipedia article   spells it out. (nsfw)

*ahem* His statuary is quite inspiring.

I searched around the forum but I haven't yet seen him mentioned. Thoughts?

That fennec fox is adorable...

I have found some of the statues that are made lean towards aardvark or donkey in the face, but considering the ancient sources are pretty diverse, I can see why.

Ancient combs in the area where Seth was supposedly born lean towards antelope shapes.

Thank-you!

Tlaloc and Durga also come to mind, though one is Mesoamerican and the other is Hindu.

I think it's worth mentioning that a lot of modern day pagans also associate lunar eclipses with the dark side of feminine energy. Death, decay, dankness, introspection, chthonic ocean, that kind of thing.

In several 'moon magic' type books, often it's considered a good time for necromancy or hexes, scrying, introspection.

I have felt closer to Nebthet and the dead the last little while, I'm not sure if it's knowing that there was a lunar eclipse (cloud cover and a wicked storm kept us from enjoying it) or residual energy from painting. My cats also went a little nutty that evening.

Gods can sometimes bring you before other gods as a way to show you what you need.

And not always are they part of your original 'pantheon'.

ie Kemetic gods showing you Sumerian or Nordic or Hindu or what have you.  

As Shezat said, it's about what you need to see/hear/experience

Some people end up with very elaborate relationships that cross continents in terms of where deities originate.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Coming out of the broom closet
« on: April 12, 2014, 09:42:04 am »
I don't say much outside of very close friends and social groups online like this where it's pretty safe to engage in religious conversation. I don't like the angry monotheist debates, they are really tiring so I try to avoid it.  

What it comes down to is that no one needs to know unless they're confrontational about it. I feel fortunate to live in an area that lives up to its attestations about religious freedom, it can get pretty scary around a certain kind of religious person who really believes they are truly out to do battle with whatever 'paganism' they find.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Interested in becoming Kemetic
« on: March 26, 2014, 10:20:30 am »
Hello.

I love Set too. I've been a pagan for a while but not in a serious way, no groups etc. and I'm just beginning here. I would suggest that you read as many books and information you can find on other groups and religions and if you feel it's for you, join the beginner's course. Everyone else has answered other questions so I will turn to the material one.

There are a lot of shops that sell Kemetic statuary including Luciferian shops, amazon, ebay and so on. In my case it's cheaper to buy from the Luciferian shops because of my location and shipping and the variety they offer to ship to me is greater, your mileage may vary. Your local pagan shop maybe have some on offer too, my local one has a lot of Bast statues for instance but not much else. They do sell very high quality and fantastic incense though and great mini candles perfect for shrine lighting.

Bowls and so on are easy to come by particularly if you have an Asian market nearby and they have some lovely 'black/red' combos that certain deities favor. You can pretty much get them anywhere though, including some great stuff in second hand shops. My shrine right now has been dressed down and simplified as I undergo the beginner's course but it still features some choice pieces like a hand carved wooden phallus and ceramic Japanese offering bowls.

Wow ok that is really cool. How is that going? Having pigs is a great idea, they're also very smart animals.
