[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Sheshat's headdress
« on: February 18, 2015, 12:30:15 pm »
Em Hotep

Someone on a facebook, decided to put up some information about Sheshat and Her picture. Then someone else commented that Her headdress looked like the cannabis leaf. I mentioned that I thought it was a papyrus plant, which Her connection to record keeping. The original poster states:

Her seven pointed "flower" or "star" is an accurate image of a hemp leaf. The leaf is typically made up of seven points and arranged in the same pattern as the most prominent sign in Sheshat's emblem. Hemp is, and has long been, an excellent material for making ropes with low-stretch quality required for measuring cords, particularly when these are greased to reduce variations in their moisture content which would influence elongation.

The characteristic leaf of the plant used in making these ropes was thus a logical choice for the emblem designer who wanted an easily recognized reference to Sheshat's job. This leaf is so unique that it is hard to confuse with other plants. Hemp is said to be native to Central Asia and its presence in pre-Dynastic Egypt is not otherwise documented. However the hemp leaf in Sheshat's emblem shows that the ancient Egyptian rope-stretchers used hemp for their measuring cords and that Sheshat cannot deny her now illegal patronage and ownership of this psycho-active plant.


I asked for a source and they haven't given one. Is there any truth to this or are they talking out their back end?

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / strange request ?
« on: February 17, 2015, 05:33:50 pm »
Em Hotep.

During my meditation. Anpu came forth and he showed me a bowl of white rice. I got the feeling he wants me to offer him some. I know it's somewhat common for Netjeru to be like their animal representatives. Do jackals/dogs eat rice? And have you had any strange or unexpected requests for offerings?

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Experience During Senut Meditation
« on: February 13, 2015, 03:15:30 pm »
Em Hotep,

I performed Senut and asked for anyone to come forward, who is interested in me and then settled myself into meditation. I usually don't get any visions, since I started performing Senut, but this time was different. I felt a bit overwhelmed as it all seemed to happen so fast, it felt like 2 minutes when in fact I was meditating for about 30 minutes.

First I found myself in a desert, when Amun came hopping or bouncing towards me as a stone statue, His plumes were shimmering gold in the sun. He leaned towards and then pointed towards a vast flat desert, overlooked by a glorious over sized sun.

As I began walking in that direction, I felt someone walking next to me. I turned and it was Sekhmet, She smiled and grabbed my hand tightly, She started to run, it was almost like I was forced to run as She dragged me further into the desert. Then suddenly We jumped into a ravine, and fell into a rushing river. Sekhmet changed into a fish and began swimming along side me. I just about kept my head above the water, when I was pushed on to the sandy shore, as if I was expelled from an ocean.

The sky started turning dark and the stars appeared, they began to move and wiggle in the sky, when Nut became noticeable, She stroked my hair and picked me up and swallowed me whole. I felt like I was flying through the gates of the Duat at great speed and came to a sudden stop at a large gate, inside there was a huge room with black and white marble floor, with a balcony supported by huge white columns with shadowy figures shifting above me.

As I walked further into the room. I saw a large golden scale before me. Anpu noticed me and gave me a gentle nod. I then Djehuty next to Him, writing on a scroll. He stopped writing and bent forward slightly, as if He was bowing to me. I then walked further up some small stairs and before a massive throne, where Wesir sat. I knelt before Him and he leaned forward and ruffled my hair.

I then appeared in a desert again, just before dawn. Ptah put His hand on my back and lead me towards the edge of a cliff, where He held my hand and pointed towards the horizon. Khepera as a scarab beetle, rolling the sun above the horizon appeared and light flooded my vision. I then opened my eyes.

----------------

I found it odd that Amun, Nut and Khepera came to me. I never really paid much attention to Them before. I also thought Bast may of appeared as I have had a lot of experiences with Her previously, but I get the feeling She has stepped to the side since I have come to the House.

Would anyone like to share their visions from meditations?

Em Hotep,

In mythology, the Ka is described as being "breathed in" to a person, either before or after birth. I was wondering if there is any mythology on the creation or development of the Ba soul.

Thank you

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Netjeri
« on: February 06, 2015, 03:15:31 am »
Em Hotep

During Senut last night (I do it during the evening), I have 4 candles (tea lights) 2 either side of my oil burner (incense irritates my asthma).

X      X
    X
X     X 

that kind of pattern.  The top right extinguished itself, followed by bottom right then bottom left and final top left, the one for the oil burner remained lit. It definitely left a sense of Netjeri involvement due to the order it was done in.

My question is has anyone had similar experiences, where Netjeri are being cheeky?

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Sekhmet's Children
« on: February 02, 2015, 02:19:33 am »
Em Hotep

I have being having trouble with contacting Netjer as a whole. I had a vivid dream that Sekhmet told me she had tried to do things subtly but obviously I was missing her hints. She then offered a red gem. I think it was a garnet maybe a ruby. I am still unsure what she means by this. I thought i would ask those who know her best.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Divination
« on: January 21, 2015, 03:32:50 am »
Em Hotep,

I have being struggling to contact Netjer, I haven't had much luck in receiving any messages or signs. Hemet advised me that I should ask someone who will perform divination for me, to see where I am going wrong. Will anyone be willing to do this for me?

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Sacred Animals
« on: January 18, 2015, 12:27:42 pm »
Em Hotep,

I am an omnivore and I understand that in Budge's 42 negative confessions, one of those are about being against slaughtering sacred animals. I assume that means the consumption of said animals as well.

Is there a list of which animals are sacred to which Netjer(et)?
Do you choose to do eat particular animals because of the mythology of divine parents?
Or is it a personal issue, if your divine parents ask you to stop consuming a particular meat?

Any help will be must appreciated

Doing some research on Nut. Does Nut means sky?

 I thought that was 'pt'.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Spiritually Lost
« on: December 31, 2014, 07:40:23 am »
Em Hotep.

I was wondering if anyone has been spiritually lost and what did they do to get out of the seemingly bottomless pit. I am not having doubts about the existence of Netjer, nothing like that, its more of a lack of communication with them. I meditate, talk openly and in my thoughts, make offerings and prayers of thanks, but I don't get that feeling of awe, like their spirit is with me, like I used to. I don't get dreams or signs of their presence anymore. It seems quiet and they seem distant.

Is there anyway I can do to rekindle with them or get their attention. It's making me feel low and alone.
