Em Hotep Senneferet,

I hope my Mother is able to give you the necessary strength to deliver Baby Lucky when it is time. May Heqat hasten your labour when it is time, and my both you and baby be protected during and after delivery.

I'm not KO, but I'm a devotee of both Sobek and Heqet. Heqet especially has so few folk worshipping Her - She's such a wonderful, kind and loving goddess, I love Her so much <3

She very much is. ;)
But I admit to my bias.

Em Hotep,

I have a collection of shrine items for both state shrine and senut shrine.

Senut shrine stuff I've gotten mainly from an Asian import store here for soup bowls and a sake vase for offering bowls and pouring libations. Anything else is from the kitchen section at places like Super Store or Walmart. Appetizer kits make great mini offering bowls because the dishes are usually small. My incense holder was from a local pagan store that sold loose incense burners. My statue of my mother I got from Soma Luna I believe, as did the rest of my statuary. My Heru-wer was purchased from Ebay with the help of some House members.

For my state shrine, I went a little fancier. I had my statue hand sculpted by Jeff Cullen, who is one of Hemet's voudou kids. My burner I got from Nippon Kodo (http://www.nipponkodostore.com/Traditional-Japanese-Incense-Burners-s/243.htm) though mine is no longer listed., and my offering bowls again are appetizer bowls from the Kitchen section at Walmart.

Shrine cloths I purchased white linen for from a local fabric shop, but that's an extra fancy thing.

Senebty,

Em Hotep Kahi,

If you haven't already, I suggest you reach out to Hemet as well. I'm sure she'd love to hear from you.

Em Hotep Mirath,

Welcome to the boards. I'd say feel free to poke around, but I see you've already done so, which is fantastic.

If you're going to reply to threads that a re older than a year (AKA: Necroposting), the forums will prompt you with a reminder that the particular thread hasn't been posted in for some time. AFAIK, we don't have specific rules against Necroposting, though you might want to so a quick subject search to see what else has been written, and then start a topic of your own. You can always quick link for reference if necessary, so that we get the context of what you're trying to ask.

Senebty!

Em Hotep! *henu*

It depends on the Name I suppose, but....

For Heru-wer, I was devoting my physical activity to Him. Anytime I went for a run, or went to a kendo class, it was devoted to him.

Djheuti was always writing-related devotions, which will more than likely start again once I start writing my Master's thesis this year.

Ptah for me is anything creative, so when I got into making armoured cosplays, a few of them were devoted to him.

Senebty!

Em Hotep Ematsen,

Good to "see" you again, and I'm glad you've been able to find a moment to find gratitude for the things in your life.

I've been very, very behind in maintaining this, only because Grad School ate my brain, but I do have some very amazing things to be thankful for.

Because of my hard work, I'm being asked to teach an Intro class this year for a small group of students. I wouldn't be doing so 100% on my own per se, as my thesis advisor is going to be watching me very closely for the time being until I can get myself established. Still, I was completely filled with gratitude when he told me that he was willing to back me when I was initially offered the position.

This also means I will be very hectic again this year, but that's fine.

Senebty, and Zep Tepi. :)

Em Hotep,

I offered an aloe vera plant to my Mother (Heqat) one year for her Festival day. I still have it, though it only sat on my shrine for a week or so before I had to move it to an era where it got more indirect sunlight. This was over two years ago.... and I JUST had to repot the plant because its so huge now. I usually give it or my spider plant the libation water from State rites.

Yes, you can offer plants, and yes, you can keep them on your shrine if you want. Just keep in mind the logistics of other shrine items like the candle/ flame, offering bowls, incense, etc. and make sure that pets aren't going to knock them over.

Senebty,

Em Hotep,

The 42 Negative Confessions are also a way to force you to be honest with yourself, as well as those around you. I believe they're more of a way to make you look at what you've done and be honest and open, and be sure to recognize if and when you've done wrong or intentionally harmed someone, and what you plan to do to reconcile that.

Raheri did an excellent job at covering the 42 Negative Confessions in the Kemet Today section of the boards. He did some fairly in depth examinations of each of those Confessions, how we can apply them, and what they mean in a modern context. Its a long message thread, but very much worth going through it for some other thoughts and discussions.

Here's the link: http://www.netjer.org/forums/index.php?topic=5730.0

We should inundate your Mother with chocolate frogs if this happens?

Em Hotep!

Heh! She probably wouldn't say no....
