[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Aspects of Aset?
« on: April 28, 2020, 06:23:44 pm »
As everyone had said, Aset can be many things. Speaking with Hemet (AUS) recently, she even said that each person will always interact with what we call an Iru, a form, of Aset, simply because she is such a shapeshifter. For me, Aset is Hatmehyt, who is the goddess of Mendes named "foremost of the fishes", but that doesn't mean she isn't also still Aset. If you feel pulled to examining a very specific form of Aset, you absolutely should.

That being said, if you need someone to talk to about this subject, please don't hesitate to send me a message. 💙

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Nit-Nebthet-Seshat?
« on: March 14, 2020, 11:06:56 am »
I have Nit-Nebthet-Seshat as a Beloved as well, and I get them together. Before my RPD I spent time with Nit and Nebthet, with an emphasis on Nebthet. Seshat is the most distant to me, which I think is why they appeared in that order in my RPD.

I get Nit as a stern but loving force, presenting to me as very butch. Nebthet is softer, but since my RPD I've come to understand my experience of her more as Nit in different clothing.

Nit-Nebthet-Seshat enjoys from me things that are strong-- stiff drinks, highly seasoned foods, as well as offerings of my time which take on more physical emphases.

I do also get her as Creator sometimes, which is when she becomes most mind-bendy to me. She is definitely a lot to conceive of and understand, for sure!

That's a lovely shrine, Theillusrationist! I love how everything has meaning for you. I've definitely also had to have tiny and subtle spaces, and Netjer understands.

Hi there! The discord server that Saqdi is referring to is now defunct, however the House has a discord server for remetj + shemsu that you are welcome to join if you decide to become a remetj after the beginner's class. :)

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Bes Amulet/Artwork?
« on: January 21, 2020, 08:36:12 pm »
This is what I was able to find with a brief search:
https://www.ebay.com/i/254335202521
or
https://www.etsy.com/listing/622237422/bes-egyptian-god-of-good-fighting-evil

An alternative might be a sa protection amulet! Bezen has one available here from shapeways: https://www.shapeways.com/product/A33TYHS6B/ancient-egyptian-sa-ldquo-protection-rdquo-amulet-version-1
You might also be able to request a Bes design, but you would have to speak to them directly to verify that they can do that! :)

Senebty,
Sesai

I have a bit of a different perspective on this, as I spent time not only as a Remetj, but time as a Divined Remetj between my RPD and deciding to take the Shemsu oath. There are plenty of things that will affect your decision whether to take that step or not. For me, I took time between having my RPD done and taking the oath because I wanted to be sure that that was what I wanted and something that I felt comfortable tying myself to.

I very much consider myself a person who is walking two paths with both the guidance of Netjer and the gods of Hatti. I consider myself a bit of an immigrant, an adopted child of the Netjeru rather than one originally born to them. And it took me a while to figure out how I would decide to walk the two paths together. And what I settled on was that I would take the teachings that the gods of my RPD and the people of Kemet have for me and place them first in my life. I will always have a relationship with what I could call my "home" gods, but I also know that they sent me off into another land for a reason, and that reason was that I needed the community that the House has to offer and I needed to learn certain lessons here.

This understanding puts me into the position that many people in antiquity were put into as well, so I try to feel confident that that was the right choice for me. I decided around the time of my RPD to ask a person from antiquity, Maathornefeure (AUS), to help me and guide me through my decisions as another immigrant from the land of Hatti. I also read about a woman who might have been of Central European descent who was found buried with an amulet of Hatmehyt. My Mother has a long history of adopting children into her fold, as many people immigrated from all parts to her home in the Nile Delta. :)

If there is one thing that I think everyone in this thread has hit on, it's that it's absolutely fine to be a Remetj. Remetj are a valuable part of the community and it's far from being just a stepping stone to becoming a Shemsu. I think, if I wasn't pushed by the gods of Hatti to further integrate myself into the community and my Kemetic practice, that I probably would have been happy to remain Remetj for a very long time.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Epithets of the Names
« on: September 27, 2019, 10:18:58 am »
Here are some translations of Hatmehyt's epithets from the LAGG (and some that were not included in the LAGG from Dendara temple). I added sections C and X with information that was found elsewhere in the LAGG but not included in the epithets listing.

I am not a German speaker, so these are all approximate translations. I tried to distinguish between some of the different words that were translated into German as "Die Herrin" to make it easier to start to find patterns in the original Kemetic.

Em hotep, Nesi! Welcome back to the House 💙 And in Wepwawet's year, no less!

If you are comfortable sharing, do let us know what pronouns you like the best past they/them! I know plenty of people who use non-he/she/they pronouns, and it would be a pleasure to be able to refer to you in the way that would bring you the most comfort. (I used to use fae/faer myself and changed to they/them for very similar reasons as you describe, so I know how you feel.)
