[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Returning

Welcome back, it’s good to meet you!

Woah, that’s fascinating!

So far I’m finding reference to Her as Mother, Daughter and Consort of Ra. It’s a bit difficult to figure out!

Em hotep all! I’ve been feeling a very deep push to explore Hethert-Sekhmet and whether or not She could be seen as an “appropriate” consort of Ra? I was wondering if anyone had any information on this or other forms of Hethert Who could be seen this way? Thank you!

I ask my lineup to watch over me and then I ask Tutu to keep bad dreams away. I made this prayer for exactly that reason:

“May Tutu come to this place and watch over my sleeping form. May the roar of His lion form frighten those who would harm me, be they demon or mortal. I offer to you the dreams which haunt and dim my countenance, so that You may be fed and I may be untroubled by their appearance. Dua Tutu!”

1. Those are our Shemsu names, we receive them as part of our RPD. The RPD is a ritual some people undergo after graduating the beginners course and being Remetji for awhile.
2. There is actually a thread on this somewhere around here but basically it’s a way of raising awareness about the importance of selfcare by holding ourselves accountable/dedicating it to a deity from my understanding. Sekhmet is very associated with healing so many choose to dedicate it to Her.
3. We have a wonderful unofficial Discord server with both serious conversation and lots of laughs!

Ra is Father (when in super formal situations) Bird Dad or Birb Dad if He’s in a playful mood. Yinepu-Wepwawet is Father in formal situations or sometimes Jackal Dad. My Beloveds I refer to as Aunts.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Offerings question

Em hotep, siobhanraven,

I, too, have chronic illness (fibromyalgia and several mental illnesses). As Piri said, water is always accepted. Offering a task or devotional activity, a physical object are also possibilities. Singing or reading a poem or hymn you've found or composed. Basically, anything you can think of.

Also, senut is cool because you have three offerings built right in: water, flame, and incense. Those are still offerings, after all! So even if you have nothing, you have those things.

Personally, I always have my offer of taking care of myself in Their Names on the table. Anything I do for my health, seeing doctors, taking my meds, resting, etc. are all offerings. (It helps that Mother Sekhmet is all about my health and very, very insistent I care for myself).

I often offer crystals or jewelry, even ones I have offered before. I'll offer "IOU" meals -- that is, write on a small slip of paper the offering of dinner or my next meal and leave it, then make a quick, silent prayer to Them again right before I eat the meal later.

If I feel well enough, I sometimes offer doing my makeup to Sekhmet as well (She likes the way it makes me feel).

But I think you get the point: anything can be an offering, as long as there is sincerity and intent. The act of giving the offering, of doing or giving something in Their Names, I feel should be the basis of it.

I hope this helps!

Senebty,
Ushedi

Let me just say I love the concept of the “IOU” slip idea! As others have said though Netjer and akhu 100% understand limitations and struggles. You can always offer the food you are already eating by saying a silent prayer.

Em hotep everyone, I would like to take this opportunity to ask for prayers for everyone who will be affected by the upcoming storm. Please stay safe everyone.

I absolutely love this thread! Ra as a super pagan farmer clicks with me on a deep level.

 I see Djehuty working in a library, especially as a cataloguer. I’m a librarian so it’s easy for me to see Him there.

Taweret of course is a midwife for me but She also teaches those pregnancy yoga classes and is the sassy friend who reminds you that “you’re worth it” whenever you feel down.

Hapi definitely works at a spa and does mud baths and skin exfoliation for deities, netjeri and akhu. He also listens to their stresses after a long day while massaging them.

Hethert is a conjure witch Who is extremely knowledgeable and kind. She connects with Her customers via Her very active Instagram account.

Imhotep works in a hospital and/or is a physical therapist. He serves as a mentor for all the young netjeri who work there.

Hatmehyt is a fishing guide Who takes people out on boats. In Her spare time She fishes but has a tendency to give Her catch to someone else to enjoy.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Destiny

Hello all, I was wondering what the KO view on fate or destiny is. I’ve only briefly seen it mentioned before so I would love to hear more if no one minds.

I definitely “see” Them most in anthro form. It makes sense to me that some modern devotees world see Them in more modern depictions because that’s what we are used to or what works for us. You aren’t alone. :)
