Yes to all this ... jealousy of others, rage about "those dumb fluffbunnies on the internet" ... been there, done that.
My jealousy, disappointment and the subsequent guilt that came with it was one of the reasons I had to step down from being a Shemsu.
I've let go of it now mostly, forging my own path.
I'll be honest, I was jealous of A'aqyt's name, lol. But she actually reached out to me first and now we call ourselves the "name twins." I consider her a lion-sister and not a competitor. ^_^
Many of you are great role-models, and it doesn't matter to me any more what appears in your signatures.

By the way, this is not uncommon at all in other faiths too. I've been hearing that Odin's women are quite territorial.

I really cannot remember a time when Sekhmet or Bast demanded anything of me. I may have been pushed, prodded, dragged kicking and screaming and didn't realize it was Them though, lol. After going through the excitement of the beginner's class, RPD, and naming, I floated in and out of the faith for years due to health/emotional issues. So hard to say for sure. Maybe the most important thing was to go easy on myself, but not run away/avoid important stuff. I still struggle with issues of fear to this day.
I have felt Them ease back to allow space for my ever-expanding curiosity and interests. None of my current pursuits seem to be a bother as I explore my ancestry, and I'm always reflecting back on Kemetic teachings and spreading love of Netjer. Just recently I spoke highly of Set on a Lokean forum, for instance.
Magic is magic, harmony is harmony, ancestors are ancestors, healing is healing, regardless of the words attached to them around the world ... as long as I am doing right by myself and the community/world at large (and finding my courage along the way), it's all good.

I think some of the confusion comes from Bast's earlier representations as a lioness, and that They are both solar-related and daughters of Ra.
Bast and Sekhmet have been paired together since ancient times, One as Protector of the South and One as Protector of the North. A Late Period phrase about Bast being peaceful and Sekhmet being fierce tends to get parroted around the internet as Them representing the beneficial/harsh sides of the sun, making Them sound like sisters or aspected.
Isn't Het-hert referred to as the "Northern Bast" sometimes? (or do I have it backwards)

Hemet's translation of the Purifications is available here - http://www.kemetschool.org/pubs/book1.php

In the meantime, I pulled out my copy to see what/who is Khemi. Unfortunately, my booklet does not match up exactly to the list on that link you gave. The closest thing I see (in my copy) is Purification 24 - "Hail Overthrower, coming forth from Qis, I do not lead myself astray." Hemet doesn't give the word for Overthrower but says that it is talking about Heru-Wer.

I found two words that seemed to pop up the most in the hieroglyphic dictionary I was looking at - nehet and sensu. At the moment I just can't think of what word, if any, that has been commonly used in the House.
Typically you'll see us use the word dua, as in giving praise or a worship service. (e.g., "Dua Netjer!" or "you are invited to tonight's festival Dua")

Thank you all for the welcoming. :) As for the suggestions thus far, I'll have to see if there's a garden nearby. I know that there's a park nearby, though that lacks plants. It's more of a trees and grass kind of park. I'm not sure if that counts?

Totally counts. We've had some discussions here lately about Hethert as the Lady of Trees. Specifically, in ancient texts She's called Lady of the Sycamore. There are often depictions of Her with a tree or as a cow coming out of a papyrus thicket. She's also associated with foreign lands, and Hemet has said it's perfectly acceptable to associate Her with more forested locations.
In my original post, I was just trying to think of ways that you could enjoy some natural beauty with Her (in addition to enjoying music and dance).
