[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Epithets of the Names
« on: May 25, 2021, 12:17:16 pm »
Hey, Wesirempet!

There are a couple more literal epithets I could see scanning the LaGG- hopefully these interest you!

-Lady of the Tent
-Lady of the Bandage

This said, historically a lot of Sekhmet priests took occupations as healers, and She (and other Gods!) would and could be called on with other epithets during the use of healing heka, without them being literally about healing a broken bone or illness. ^^

Hope this helps, or gives you a direction to go on! Books and articles about healing in Ancient Egypt are also great to learn more about Her, Her priesthood, and how healing was handled back in the day.

Em hotep nefer!

The "nbt sSd / Lady of the Bandage" epithet is inadequately translated from Egyptian to German (and again to English). The sSd is a band of linen which goes around the forehead and is a ritually-significant diadem. In various hymns, it is identified as the garment which enjoins (mDH[-n] -- mDH being also another term for a fillet, just like sSd) the Two Crowns.

As for "Lady of the Tent," specifically if wt or ibw are being used, that relates to the embalming process and to the going-forth of the deceased on their transfiguration journey (namely with the ibw). Similarly with the series of epithets naming the Wabet more explicitly.

Her epithet of "Lady of the House of Books" would be among those related to the healing arts, since that is where all magical and medical texts were housed within a temple complex. "Lady of Life" also covers that element, both for the living and the deceased. :)

Senebty, and I hope this helps!

Love all this info, sib! You never fail to impress. ;) Thanks for the clarifications and the great contribution!

EDIT: Bad verbiage, typing up a storm while working, LOL.

Em hotep, Rehen! It's good to meet you! :)

The Member's Directory does indeed still exist. You can find it here, on the Kemet.org website (make sure to sign in, otherwise you won't be able to access this link)!

Hope it helps, and that you have a wonderful time reconnecting with the Temple! Feel free to reach out to me too if you'd like to connect, as well!

You're welcome! I like the "Lady of the Bandage" one too, out of that couple. :D

The "LaGG" is short for the "Lexikon der ägyptischen Götter und Götterbezeichnungen" by Christian Leitz. It's one of the more popular books for info on various Netjeru(t). There's some translations from the original German that are floating around the internet, and some folks have taken to translating and sharing them here (especially on this thread!) or other spots.

There are many editions and volumes, but feel free to start here on Google Books if you're looking for a copy or so! <3

This is one of my favorite things Taswau and I have ever done together! And what a beautiful picture to commemorate that time. It's been an honor to always carry my Fathers with me every day. <3

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: I can’t communicate with the gods?
« on: September 23, 2019, 07:44:09 am »
Em hotep, Omen!

I'm sorry that you've been having a difficult time connecting with the Gods. As Sudjawi said, this could be a matter of a fallow time- which happens to all of us on occasion for reasons like mental/physical health issues or imbalances, such as needing to focus on mundane matters- but there can also be a variety of other things affecting your experiences through the years.

On one hand, there could be the influence of you expecting a specific Netjer, or for Them to react or speak in a certain way, so it feels as if you are deaf or that they do not respond. I had this issue years ago when I was first working with Djehuty and Wepwawet, to the point that I didn't think They cared, but I had to learn to communicate with them. For many folks (and admittedly I am one of them, so my experiences will color my opinion), there is also an element of spiritual discipline that is outside offerings and requests. Netjer is autonomous, and will not work as simply as "insert coin offering for results." Taking time to calm the mind, accept any response without expectation, or learning discernment (beyond asking for signs) in how to separate your internal dialogue will help. This is easily said, but is a practice one always refines throughout their lifetime, so please do not fret if it doesn't work "right away!"

There are times where a Netjer will enter our lives for a brief time, to teach us something or help with something, and then step back. This is common and normal. I have personally experienced this (and am currently experiencing this!) with Sobek.

There are also simply times that a God will not respond to someone, and that's okay. There can be reasons for this beyond our knowing- I had this happen in regards to Bes back in the day. I thought we'd jive well and we didn't and that's cool! I found what I thought I would experience in a relationship with Bes through other means and experiences.

Ultimately, I can empathize with the frustration and mindset of someone looking for an answer and not feeling as if they are receiving a response from the divine. This is not a response to your questions easily given, as the solution is only something that you can find, but please take a breath and know that it's okay. Not all of Netjer hates you, I am confident. Continue to approach Them with respect, kindness, and an open mind, and I'm sure that you will find what you need.

I wish you luck in your journey, and hope this aids you in even some small way. Also, remember to be kind to yourself, too. Spirit is a lifetime process. <3

Senebty,
Emhat

Em hotep, Seta!

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any significance the number alone has... other than being divisible by 4, the number of completion, sixfold. That being said, it's a very surface level answer, and possibly one of the first most kemetics would lean towards. :3

If you are looking outside of said kemetic context, there is also numerology, where the number 24 is broken down into 6 (ironically as much as that 4 is multiplied by, above), which represents home life, family, commitment, harmony. Either way, it seems to have a positive vibe around it, at first glance!

I'd be interested to see if some other folks can chime in with more insight if there is any.

Senebty,

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Netjer and good dreams?
« on: June 16, 2019, 10:58:24 am »
Em hotep!

As someone that deals with chronic nightmares, I can empathize with this. Historically, homes with children would appeal to Bes for relief of nightmares, but I have also found success in praying to Yinepu as well. Though, and this is purely my experience, there are times where He will aid me in facing the reason of why I'm having those nightmares, so a bit of healing as well... and while painful, has never steered me wrong and I feel better for it. :D

There are also some forms of heka you might be able to do, or magic if that is up your alley.

I hope you find some relief, sleeping peacefully is a necessity.

Senebty,
Emhat

Welcome to the House, I hope you find what you’re looking for here!

As a child of Set and Beloved of Djehuty, I’m always up for talking about Them, if you’d like to PM me.

Em hotep, Hunefer!

Most certainly, the Netjeru do not need statues in order for us to worship them. One of the things that I find most fascinating in my own connection with Them is feeling Them in the world that we live in, through people or nature itself (Nature and Netjer- both words have a very similar ring to them! ;) ). If you believe the Netjeru are present, as They are, the statues are never necessary.

Statues, as kept in shrines, are more of a focus for some to direct prayer to. Some people are more visual, and that helps direct that energy. Alternatively, the statue can be had as an item to honor the Netjer in question, to contribute Their imagery to a space or function within a space. The only time to my knowledge that a Netjer is said to "live" within a statue is an open statue, which the State icons of priests fall under.

I hope this helps, and I love hearing the sentiment of worship and connection to Netjer coming directly from the heart, again and again. <3

Senebty,
Emhat
