[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Sekhmet Altar cloth?

Em Hotep,

I grew up Christian, and a good chunk of my background is in history and horror, so it did occur to me that exorcism and healing share a common origin- so much so that in many parts of the world you would ask the same people for both tasks.

That said, I was curious as to whether or not they pertained at all to purification of altar space.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Sekhmet Altar cloth?
« on: May 24, 2018, 05:30:11 pm »
One of the guys I follow on Etsy only has one Kemetic altar cloth, and it’s dedicated to Sekhmet.

I saw one listing that said she was goddess of Banishment and Exorcism, another that she was a protector and healer. Needless to say I’m confused.

What role to these have to do with each other?

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
« on: April 30, 2018, 11:56:31 am »
I actually have a question regarding Shrines and Altars.

I’m still waiting to start the Beginner class, so I’m wondering if it matters where in the room it’s placed (what direction we pray).

If so, it towards the Dawn or Dusk? Towards the Nile or Pyramids?

Thank you.

So for now it’s just a waiting game for the Beginner’s class email.

Gotcha. Ankh udja seneb.

I found what I thought was an RPD form, but instead it was a course registration.

Was that the form I needed? If not, does someone have the right one?

Thank you.

Which brings us back to the original question- we try to reconstruct it as much as possible, but Reconstruction will never be 100%, as you can’t pick a particular set of rituals and beliefs because they themselves changed over time.

I think I get it now. A Shemsu can try to maintain the original faith as much as possible, but a total reversion is impossible.

The religion itself hasn’t changed, just the people who practice it and the society around them.

Is that accurate?

8
In short, the Akhu did it for a reason so if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. However, if it is clearly broken, then by all means go ahead and fix it.

Is that the jist of it?

Hey y’all

I’ve been spending the last week trying to find an answer, but nowhere can one be found.

What is the role traditionalism plays in Ma’at? Wikipedia said “resistance to change” was in there, but nowhere else could I find something saying as much from modern priesthood.

Can anyone provide me with some help?
