[PUBLIC] Welcome! / *shuffles back in*
« on: July 24, 2017, 04:55:01 pm »
Em hotep, all!

Sorry I've been away. Back in Oct, I had to move out of my apartment, and ended up with family for six or seven months. We finally got back into our own place in the end of April, but since then I also had a series of out-patient surgeries on my legs. On top of all that, I've been struggling with general, chronic pain and fatigue.

However. Now that I am in my own place again, with a shrine up, and my leg surgeries are over, I feel like it's time to reintegrate myself into the community. I've been to a few rituals, as I could, but I think it's time for me to come back to the forum proper.

Senut is still hard for me. I try, but my body just doesn't always cooperate. I was on medication for a while that helped, but it was through my vascular doctor and he's no longer treating me now that my legs are over, and thus won't renew my medications. I'm working with a PCP on that, getting some blood tests later this week to see what is wrong with me. (Although, I got ill with partially related reasons over this weekend and ended up in the ER -- what fun.)

Regardless, I can still attend rituals a couple times a month and participate in the forum at least. <3

So, to all who remember me: I'm baaaa-aaaaack!
To all the new faces: Hello! I look forward to getting to know you!

Senebty,
Ushedimuti

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Mafdet

Em hotep, all!

I've asked about one Mother, now for the other Mother: Mafdet!

She's most definitely a quiet Name, but if anyone wants to share about their experiences with Her, I definitely want to hear. It feels a bit lonely as She doesn't have many children or beloveds, and I'm still getting to know Her.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Sekhmet & Hethert
« on: November 23, 2016, 08:09:28 pm »
Em hotep, all, *henu*

So, before my RPD, I had no real... connection to Sekhmet. No inkling of Her in my life, aside from noticing Her devotees everywhere. I wondered: with so many who adore Her, what made Her so appealing? I couldn't figure it out. And forgive me, I still don't. I'm having trouble connecting with Her emotionally. I have no idea how to approach Her.

To further confuse things, I did feel drawn to Hethert. Now, I'm really unsure how much I should consider Her in Sekhmet. I know, it's different for everyone and there's no real answer, but I just can't quite wrap my head around how to take Them: together as a Whole, or seperately, like Two Sides of a coin.

I think what I'm asking is... just ways people experience Sekhmet-Hethert, or even Hethert-Sekhmet. Just maybe to help quell my anxiety of it all.

I would like to note: I am currently unable to perform senut due to my living situation; I'm sure if I were doing it more often, things might be a little less frustrating for me to puzzle out.

Senebty,
Ushedi

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / Prayers for Health and Prosperity
« on: August 17, 2016, 08:53:50 pm »
Em hotep all,

I'm in need of prayers if you would.

1.) I've been wrestling with chronic pain for months now, and I'm only now getting what might be a lead on it. It has also wrecked my mental health to a degree. I've found out that I'm pre-diabetic, have a vitamin D deficiency, and poor circulation in my legs. (I've also got an awful cold right now). I'm getting a prescription for the vitamin D, changing my diet for the pre-diabetes, and seeing a podiatrist for the ankle pain I've been experiencing (and, failing that, seeing the vascular doctor again to treat the poor circulation).

2.) My landlord is raising the rent next lease and we cannot afford it. (It's at least $84 more a month that they want). So, the only real option we have is to move out. Trouble is that we don't have the money to do that, and no real place for me and my daughter to stay while we save up for it. My dad is working on trying to help me, but I have a very rocky relationship with him as it is. He's probably as good as his word, but prayers for fiances and opportunities would be helpful.

Top it all off, I have a young daughter just starting kindergarden and a senior cat that depend on me and my boyfriend. Daughter is having a tough time adjusting to school, and the cat doesn't get along with other pets. I'm not able to work more due to the pain and scheduling with my daughter's school, and my boyfriend is doing all he can to be the breadwinner, but I know it stresses him out.

Obviously, I'm doing all I can for these things but it's just a lot on our plates, so any prayers would be helpful.

Thank you.

Senebty,
Brianna

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / *deep breath* RPD
« on: July 27, 2016, 06:08:24 pm »
Em hotep,

Sooo it's that time for me. I have submitted my RPD and sent my payment. I didn't think I'd ever get here, but I am! Now, the long wait.

As someone pointed out to me, I have done this on the last day of the year. Good symbolism, I hope.

[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Hello
« on: February 15, 2016, 03:05:11 pm »
Hello, everyone!

Newbie here. I look forward to learning and getting to know all of you. I've applied for the March classes, hopefully I'll be accepted!

I'm not quite sure what to say about myself, other than I've been pagan for years now and recently have been drawn to Kemeticism. Set popped up a few months back and I've been honoring Him on and off (been bad at it, but He doesn't seem to mind?). Recently, I've been trying to honor Yinepu as well (I mean really recently, like a week or so ago). Got good feelings about that one.

About two weeks ago I got this overwhelming, undeniable urge to look into Kemeticism and Kemetic Orthodoxy as well. It didn't go away until I made the decision to apply for the beginner's class at least and make up my mind about it afterwards. Originally, I was a little wary, but as I have lurked here and talked to some on Tumblr, did some research and watched some Youtube videos of members, I get more comfortable with the idea. It feels right. Everything is clicking with me to an almost scary amount.

That said, I'm still not sure, and I likely won't be until after the class. But until then I'm very glad to be here and very willing to learn.

Some random facts about myself: I'm twenty-seven, a "single" mother (legally single, but I have a long term partner), I've read tarot for years but still feel like a beginner (probably due to off-and-on practice rather than daily practice), and attempting to learn about and use magic. I've also worshiped a Hellenic goddess for years now and am still learning about Hellenic polytheism as well.

Any beginner's advice is welcome. Again, I look forward to learning from you all. I wish you all a wonderful day!
