Yes, the Heru-Wer of Rekeh-Wer is the one I get most strongly. That is when I first met him and felt the need to get to know Him better. During Rekeh-Wer I made a promise to get to know Him more, and since I first met Him then, maybe that's why I don't get Him as a fighter or military person. As this form, He is a good balance to the weathery, stormy Set that I get. They work together to make the plants grow. "Destruction" and creation. Life and death. Heru-Wer and Set. Just a very natural Heru-Wer instead of the warrior that most get.

Em hotep!

I am getting to know my Heru-Wer, and would like other experiences with Him as well!

I mostly get Him as a farmer; green skinned, calloused hands, willing and happy to go out and till the fields by hand, always holding a shovel or a hoe or another solid farming tool. He is a farmer, a creator, a hard worker. But he is also a mediator and a teacher. He stepped forward in a dream saying He would help me in my class work for a degree in Business Administration. He has helped me mediate arguments between me and my husband, He helps me at work some when I am paying enough attention to listen.

Does anyone else get Heru-Wer in these ways? As a farmer, as a mediator, as a teacher/tutor? If so, how do you go about working with Him? Do offerings change as different forms of Heru-Wer emerge?

@Ceasar, even before I knew that kemeticism was a thing, when I was just a witch thinking I knew what I was doing but actually didn't, I never did invocations. Even now, as a shemsu and devout follower of my gods, I just speak to them. They know whats going on, they know what has happened in your life, and, I have found, They respond perfectly to a normal conversation. You ask a question, you may get a direct answer, or it may require some divination or learning. But our gods, if you ask me, will reach out to us in their own ways and will adapt to what is comfortable for us. When I drive to work, I have prayer beads I made in my car that remind me of Yinepu, my Father, and I just talk at Him. He may say nothing, He may offer some advice, or He may just be a shoulder to cry on.

What I am trying to say is that Kemetic Gods do not necessarily require any special form of communication, They respond if you just speak to them. When I am confused, I talk the situation out with my Father, when I am sad I explain why and the gods come to me, when I am struggling the gods let me know they will support me and show me how. Just speak to them. They don't need anything specific or super special to communicate with you. They just will. They all have different ways of communicating with each of us, and its something to be learned. But I will say, I think that if how you are trying to connect with them hurts, then you may want to try something different.

Em hotep,

I think what Saqdiheru was saying was just speak to them like you would a human in front of you. Its a personal relationship, you don't need to invoke or evoke Them. Try just sitting and telling them about your day like you would at a family dinner. It doesn't take any fancy or strenuous things to connect to the Netjeru, just desire and effort. But just talk to them like you would talk to anyone else. Yes, they are gods, but they are very personable and they come to us on our own levels as well as on godly levels.

Recently redid my informal shrine so I could have a prayer area with a work area. Top shelf is all Netjeru I work with, shown are Bast, Sekhmet, Ra, Yinepu, Wepwawet, Bes, Taweret, and Ptah-Tatenen. Still needing representation on it are Renenutet-Aset, Set, and Heru-Wer!

Bottom shelf is floor level, and it is my meditation/divination work place!

Em hotep!

I only have one experience with Djehuty, but it was...powerful to say the least.

I was in my microbiology lecture, and my fibro was flaring so bad I couldn't even sit properly. I had lab next for the same class and I knew that I wasn't going to be able to move my hands enough to do the lab since it required so much precision, and sitting was hard enough as is. I sent out a silent prayer to whoever was listening for help, otherwise I was going to have to take an absence for my lab and honestly I love lab time. As soon as lecture ended, after I sent out my silent prayer, my pain disappeared. I knew immediately it was Djehuty. After lab ended (I did everything perfectly and I had so much fun), my pain slowly started creeping back. I offered Djehuty a coffee from the campus Starbucks and my pain level stayed lower than it had been before He intervened.

I haven't had any interactions with Djehuty since, but that has stuck with me very hard.

Bumping this because I recently have been thinking about making a shrine garden of sorts for the Netjeru I work with! I love the idea of offering living plants, they take time, love, care, and dedication to keep alive. I have been thinking of plants that would be good for the Netjer, for instance Tatenen loves ferns, every time I see one He goes crazy about it. Yinepu makes me think of jasmine plants, and Ra loves sunflowers.

Does anyone else have plants dedicated to the Netjer? With summer coming I would love to have a little place on my porch where I can bathe in the sunlight and perfume of the earth, in a space dedicated to the Netjer that I am close with.

Em hotep all! I was thinking today about how the different Netjeru I work with have come to me, and I was curious how they have come to y'all! What were your first experiences with the Netjeru? Did any come in pairs? Were they around significant life events?

For me, Yinepu came to me first. The first time I met Him, I was driving home from work at night and suddenly my head started spinning. I pulled over to the side of the road, pulled scrap paper out of my bag, and started writing. In 15 minutes I wrote out two poems that Yinepu gave me the words for. It was not until after the poems were finished that I could think with my own brain again. Afterwards I just knew it was Yinepu, there was no question. A month later I asked him to be my patron. A couple months after that, I joined the beginners class!

Bes and Taweret were the two that came next. I wanted to work with Netjer of the home and read about them and said "Hi I am working with you now hope that's okay" and They just stuck around and are going nowhere!

Ra was a surprise in my RPD. I was brought to Kemet by Khepera, and He stayed around a while. Then Nefertem came and Khepera left, and I spent much time growing with Him. After my RPD, I learned that the Khepera and Nefertem that I worked with were Ra and I was being stubborn in listening. He is now my mentor and teaches me new things constantly.

Sekhmet came to me first in a dream, standing in maned lioness form between me and my parents, growling at them, protecting me. She has since stuck around and is a fierce protector of me and mine. She is always around when I am with my blood relatives to shelter me from their incidental harm.

Ptah-Tatenen was an epiphany. He just clicked one day while I did some research for my garden and future farm, and I love and need his quiet calm and grounding presence.

Heru-Wer I met during one of His festivals and promised to get to know him better.

Renenutet-Aset I met in a dream, only learning later (With the help of Hemet). Aset had been around before then but when I met Renenutet everything clicked. She is quiet and powerful, a mother figure and queen.

Bast is one that I petitioned when my kitten, Eli, found me. I took him home and nursed him to health while praying to Bast for him every day. He is now healthy and I owe Bast a statue!

Set is the most recent addition to the Netjer I work with, and boy was he loud. My wedding in March was outside, and at first the weather looked perfect for it. Then about 2 weeks before, a huge rainstorm was projected. It was to last 5 days, with day 3 on my wedding day. Over the next 13 days the storm changed intensity, length, and days constantly. Every time I checked the weather app, it was different. I prayed to Set every day, asked Him to remove the storm, gave promises of offerings of tacos and cinnamon whiskey if he would just push the storm back. One of his children petitioned him on my behalf and told me one day that "it is done" and after that I knew it would all be good. Come to wedding day, the weather was perfect. Set is now in my everyday life and it is interesting to say the least!

So that is it for my spiel, I would love to hear yours! How did the Names you work with come to you first?

Em hotep!!

This link has many epithets of many Names! https://www.netjer.org/forums/index.php?topic=8364.315

I hope you will find it helpful! If there are specific Names that don't have epithets listed yet, its best to bump that thread so everything stays together. Most everything comes from the LAGG (a German book of many volumes that is quite the investment but can be found in some libraries), but everything needs to be translated from German to English. I hope this helps!

Senebty,

Mehuti

Oh so many responses! Twas not expecting that!

I have done so much research today my head is spinning and I managed to develop a headache heh.

Hakenensenu - I read that but I think off of their tumblr! I do appreciate the link to their actual website! It has some interesting and useful UPG.

Raheri - I saw lots of info for Wesir-Sepa and Heru-Wesir syncs, So I am sure something could be UPG'd between the three of them, not to mention Yinepu who I found as Yinepu-Wesir and Yinepu-Heru and Yinepu-Sepa today (didn't help the head spinning). So much squishyness.

Sedjfai - Yes, the festival for IV Peret 28 is what got me interested; that is the day I was born so I have been looking into the Names in festival that day. Lots of Heru, But Heru-Sepa stuck out the most and I can't get Him out of my head. I guess if Heru-Sepa is a very regional deity it may be hard to find solid evidence of that specific sync/aspect, so I feel like UPG will be most of what I can get. Thank you for the Henadology link though, I hadn't found that somehow yet!

Thank you all for the information! I have a folder in my bookmarks for Sepa now so maybe when I am less headachy from excessive online reading all of it will click better.

Senebty for now!

Em hotep all,

I have been trying to look into Heru-Sepa recently, but am struggling to find much on Him. I know that Sepa is a god who was called upon for protection from poisons, insect and snake bites, and illness, and that He can be depicted as a centipede, a mummified man with small curled "horns", or as a donkey. I found a couple places so far where He is mentioned, either as Heru-Sepa or just Sepa. IF anyone knows anything about Him, please let me know! IDK why I feel so pulled to Him yet but I am determined to figure it out.

This is what I have found on Sepa so far:

Sepa references in a purification by a sem-priest in the tomb of Sennefer (https://www.osirisnet.net/tombes/nobles/sennefer/e_sennefer_08.htm)

This UPG of Sepa (http://unorthodoxcreativity.com/emky/info/sepa-centipede-god/)

A mention of Heru-Sepa in this forum post, "Many, many Netjeru deal with illness, whether of the "demonic" variety or the purely physical variety. (Heru-)Sepa, Aset, various Hathor-Goddesses, Bawy/Harwyfy/Set-Heru, (Heru-)Shed, Sobek (esp. Sobek-Re of Sumenu), Amun-Re . . . you name it!" (quote by Sedjfai)  (https://www.netjer.org/forums/index.php?topic=21303.msg299799#msg299799)

A mention of Sepa in this forum post, also by Sedjfai (https://www.netjer.org/forums/index.php?topic=21121.msg297043#msg297043)

Senebty!

Em hotep!

I have Papa Bes and Mama Taweret as Beloveds, though they were Papa and Mama far before then, so it is really up to you for the most part.

Happy to have you here (and really happy to talk Bes at any time)!
