I don't know how unique this is. I'm in my third year of doing taxes for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Now that I live in a larger area, I can do it almost year round, instead of just January to April.

Continued prayers for an excellent (and hopefully smoother) recovery.

Thanks for sharing. Holy Hill is gorgeous. I grew up in Sheboygan County, and our church occasionally took trips there. Stupid question, but is that Green Bay or Lake Michigan? :)

Em hotep, *henu*

I find I connect with my Father the most in 1) the woods, particularly among evergreens (especially pine trees) and 2) in farm fields. He's very consistent for me.

There's also something about Ancient Egyptian exhibits at museums, particularly those with mummies, as if He is there making sure the dead are given the respect they deserve. The Minnesota Science Museum had an exhibit last year about Egyptian and South American (Peruvian, I think) ancient burial customs, and His presence was so strong.

Tbh I'm really scared about getting my RPD done. I want to, I really do.

But I'm scared that it won't be the One who I am most fond of.

But honestly finding out my parents would be awesome for me, as I grew up in an abusive household and didn't really get to experience "parents".

There's always that possibility. I remember being terrified that Wesir and Bast wouldn't show up. That said, most of the time, a person's instincts tend to be fairly spot on. Maybe not in the order or exact combination expected, but They do show up. In my case, my only ("only", heh) Parent is Wesir, and Bast is the first of two Beloveds.

And all that said, RPD results don't automatically take away from any existing relationships you have with a Name. Even if They aren't "official," They're still there. The RPD aspects are, at the end of the day, just one part of you.

I can relate, a little, to that last part. Having a Father is...nice.

Em hotep, Jennifer!

I think we met briefly at Paganicon, but welcome again! There's a slooowly growing number of us in the Twin Cities, and I'd like to get more gatherings going as time goes on. Feel free to PM me with any questions!

Senebty,

Em hotep,

Adding my two cents, I've had the (perhaps dubious) privilege of experiencing two very different sides of my Father. For context, when I found Kemetic Orthodoxy in 2003, I was in a very different place both emotionally and spiritually. The Wesir I encountered for many years was very fatherly and gentle; I think He knew I couldn't handle anything else at that point. And he was right, I was terrified of males in authoritative positions, and it doesn't get a lot more authoritative than King of the Dead. My Shemsu name, in and of itself, reflects that fatherly role. "Protected by His (strong) arm."

More recently, however, as I've healed and started finding my own strength, the King has been there much more often. I went through a period where I felt abandoned, and I was very angry. It dawned on me later that They knew that Eric would be entering my life, and that I wouldn't need Them as much. At the time, however, I just felt abandoned. Eric and I went to an exhibit at the local museum about Ancient Egyptian burial customs, and the first figure of Wesir I stopped in front of carried such a wave a power that I almost dropped into full henu in the middle of a crowded exhibit. There was a very real sense of "I do not exist to serve at your every call." It was a much-needed reminder that, for all I have experienced Wesir as a father-figure, He is a Name of Netjer, and a King.

These days, it's a mix of the two that I get. I think Wesir (like any Name, maybe) responds to you the way you need Him to, which is not necessarily the way you think He should. Approach Him genuinely, without the expectation that He is going to do something for you. From a practical standpoint, as others have mentioned, living things (plants, not animals), ales, and not sand or fish. Dark, rich soil. Pinecones have somehow become a thing. I connect better walking in nature. Be careful not to confuse Him with a sort of Green Man. He is not.

Senebty,
Nehwen
