[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Important Holidays
« on: September 20, 2019, 09:58:21 am »
Em Hotep!

I've been wondering if there are any noteable Kemetic holidays that can be celebrated or worshipped today? While I know I can do this on my own, I want to have dedicated days to worship and celebrate the presence of the Netjer. Maybe if there are even dedicated days to some of the Netjer that would equal a holiday of sorts.

Em Hotep!

I'm about to get a little personal here, but I would love to meet some people who might have had similar experiences.

So, to clarify, I'm AFAB (assigned female at birth). Ever since I was younger, I had always been a more masculine child. I had never fit in with the female gender or those stereotypes, especially as I grew older. When I was 15, I started to question my gender and experiment with new identities. And then when I was 17, I finally knew I was a male.

When I was starting back into Kemeticism, I was worried about whether there would be prejudice against transgender folk like myself. But as I've grown and gotten closer and closer with the Netjer, I feel like I have learned so much about them. The Netjer with which I connect with (Sutekh, Sobek, and Yinepu) have been nothing but accepting of this growth. I even learned about Meskhenet, who I didn't even know was a Netjer until very recently. I feel like I've gotten to know her as of late especially because of what feels like my rebirth into the world. I feel like she's been a part of my transition to help my new true self find myself into the world, and that she has guided me to self-acceptance and self-love.

This doesn't have to be a forum in which people respond and share their own experience. By all means, you can if you feel comfortable with it. I just wanted to share my experience and maybe find other people who had experienced similar things. I know with other religious practices, it's rather difficult to find others like myself.

Much thanks!

Em Hotep!

I saw a popular thread regarding Kemetic tattoos, but it was about ten years old, so I thought I'd start up a new one. In May, I'm going to be getting a piece of Yinepu on the back of my calf, and I'm hoping I can get more later on. What kind of tattoos do you all have that are related to the Netjer?

Hello friends. This post might be a little long because I feel like I have to put in some context for people to know what exactly I'm asking.

When I was younger, specifically 9 or 10, I had found a love for Egyptology and I was openly Kemetic (although at the time I didn't know that there were others who had similar beliefs). I had a connection with Anpu/Anubis, and I believed him to be my protector, and a sort of father figure. However, when I went into middle school (in the American education system), there was a class that discussed religion and how all other religions except Christianity, Islam, and Judaism were mythological, nothing more than story fabricated by ancient peoples. People knew that I was open about my belief of the gods, especially Anpu/Anubis, and when we were in this class, I would be bullied and teased for believing a "false religion". Because of all of this peer pressure, I decided to stop connecting with the gods.

Essentially, I forced Anpu/Anubis out of my life, when he ultimately didn't deserve to be treated as poorly as I treated him.

When rediscovering my desire for spirituality, I returned to Kemeticism and I immediately noticed how hesitant the Netjer were to make contact with me. I have a feeling that this is because of my treatment towards Anpu/Anubis. It took me several months to finally be able to connect and contact with the Netjer, and Sobek was the first I was able to connect with. However, lately, I've been wanting to contact Anpu/Anubis and make amends with him. I feel like I've dreamt about him lately, or at least I've seen him in a dream, but within the dream I wasn't able to actually make contact.

I'm still relatively new to Kemeticism, but I've already positively established contact with other Netjer. All I want is to be able to rebuild the relationship I once had with Anpu.

My main question is how do I approach Anpu/Anubis after such a long time of separation? How do I ask forgiveness from him after treating him poorly? What can I do to apologize to him and re-establish contact and hopefully our relationship? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone! I'm pretty new to this website, but I've been wanting to meet more people who have similar beliefs as I do, so I felt like it was time to finally get online. I'll probably have a lot of questions once I get more active on here!  ;D
