I am facing a problem which is really annoying and would like to ask for your opinion or advice regarding this.

I have never practiced Kemeticism before, completely new to this. This never happens to me with any other deities or spirits, only with the Netjeru. Whenever I try to invoke any one of them, I feel this strong spiritual pain in my solar plexus and sometimes some angry spirit moving about me. Sometimes, I get waves of positive energy, like you are supposed to get when invoking a divinity, but mostly pain.

This first started three years ago when I tried to invoke Sekhmet. I was invoking her for the purpose of making her acquaintance, like I usually do when invoking a deity for the first time. But, after concluding the invocation, whatever the spirit was, didn't want to leave and remained attached to me, making me feel this weird pain, like it was attacking me. I had to banish it in the end. After this mishap, I decided to not approach the Egyptian deities anymore, until a week ago when I tried invoking Djehuty and Het-Heru, but I still feel the pain and the attacks.

Let me make it clear, I do not think that the Netjeru are causing me pain. I do not think that divine entities can feel profane feelings like anger or contempt, in order to cause suffering. But whatever it is that comes along when I try invoking them, it tries to hurt me.

I have spoken to several other persons who practice Kemeticism and all of them stated that there should be no need for special initiation into this religion, in order for the Netjeru to recognize me and work with me. Other religions warn against invoking their spirits, as they are protected by "gatekeepers" (spirits who need to be invoked before all others, for initiation), like the Hindus have Ganesha, the Greeks have Hermes and the Romans have Ianus.

But Kemeticism doesn't seem to have such an intermediary. The only one coming closer to this definition would be Heru, as the Pharaoh was considered to be the incarnation of this Netjer and the mediator between humans and the Netjeru. But I also tried to introduce myself to Heru and it didn't help.

I also tried offerings, but this didn't fix the issue either. I don't know what to do. I would really like to work more with the Netjeru and to get closer to divinity in its Kemetic aspect as well, but no joy. Am I doing something wrong?

Normally, I can deal with spiritual issues on my own, but as I have no experience with this particular form of spirituality, I would really appreciate the advice of people who are initiated.

Hello all,

I just wanted to greet you before I begin posting.

I am completely new to Kemeticism. I have practiced magic and mysticism for almost a decade and I am looking to learn more about this particular religion/practice. I have read some of its mythology and legends, as well as some books on the subject by E.A. Wallis Budge, but there are some thing that you can only learn by communicating with other people.

Looking forward to talking to you. :)
