Quote from: Maen


I think that Heka also fits into this context, since the power of Heka primarily comes from speech, and speech is created by air and breath.


As usual, Maen puts it beautifully. For me, the connection between Shu and Heka is that you can't have speech without breath, and as breath is the "life giver" it gives LIFE to your words.

Quote from: Huyitu
I acknowledge and appreciate that theologically our religion is a little soupy.  

Actually, I don't think it is. It's just multi-layered, complex and not ruled by Greek logic.
My personal experience with Egyptian theology is this: First, it's easy. Then you take a closer look, and it becomes complicated. But if you keep reading and looking, it suddenly resolves into something beautiful, something that is true on so many levels and resonates in your heart.

I also agree with this, it's not soupy, it's just very intricately interconnected. It takes time and a lot of earnest reflection to really even begin to understand what's really being described and personified.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: a question about Tefnut
« on: August 04, 2014, 09:59:56 am »
I mostly connect with Tefnut in the form of clouds, fog, humidity, moisture collected in the air. But most definitely any time I see clouds, I think of Her. To me it's always cool to think about Tefnut & Shu as the clouds (former) and the wind that moves them (latter). But I would second the assertion that She seems more "moisture" than bodies of water, though I would think She would/could be nearby bodies of water as the potential for moisture in the air is relevant.

Quote from: Gleb

(9)  The Ren- the name of an individual, the essential attribute for preservation of a being. The ancients believed that in the absence of a name, individual ceased to exist. The quality of a name, therefore, was very important.

Do you agree with it? Looks true, but I still have to comprehend it.


On top of/clarifying this, it's my personal understanding that the Ren is also "the word" that created you, the sound of your creation (I envision this as the ripples you cast into the Universe when you were born, like sound waves emitting from the Source) and the key to your existence. Your raison d'etre if you will, that if you can take on exploring, will reveal your truest nature and the general purpose your life serves.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Your perception of Wepwawet
« on: August 01, 2014, 07:28:40 am »
On top of the wonderful descriptions others have posted, I also personally see Wepwawet as a "crossroads" kind of Netjer, a navigator if you will. Someone Who, being rather liminal is between and aside from It  All, can see it all that much more clearly. He finds, defines and forges paths. Any door you come to, he has the key.

Thing is Schezmuhotep, what you're doing here is  essentially "evangelizing" your beliefs and think that others here should/would support you, and we don't/won't do that. We, as a general principle, vehemently disagree with a "one true way" of looking at things.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Personal hangups about spirituality
« on: August 16, 2013, 08:56:17 am »
What Zat and Shefyt said! I would add, there is a modern tendency to DEvalue the realm of the mind and spirit, deeming them "unreal" in some form or fashion. The ancients didn't seem to have this same hang up, they greatly valued the "unseen" as of equally REAL and valuable existence, immeshed and interwoven in the "seen".

This is something I've struggled with....the whole "well, how do I know I'm not just making this up" question. I still struggle with it, but have learned that if I can work on my suspension of disbelief, it goes a long way towards growing my "Inner plane". And I have experienced how this works, when I actively begin by imagining an experience, with intent and a focused purpose, in turn it becomes something *more* than my imagination, something with a direction of it's own. And since then, I find it easier to just go ahead and work on that suspension and let the rest take off from there.

I do get a lot of " brain static" in the sense used above, and I tend to be pretty closed off. I find myself continually questioning, well....everything in my spiritual experience (I am rather an analytical person), and there's nothing wrong with that. But to have a truly meaningful spiritual life/experience/etc, it's a worthwhile effort to attempt to feel and think with more than your mind (for we are many "parts"), and dig deeper, as it were. The motto of: you are not your mind, your mind is YOURS.

Sometimes the more...shall we say "forceful" names, such as Set, have something of a twisted sense of humor...

What I remember most was the absolute PILE of synchronicities that lead to me finding the House, and as I delved deeper into learning more about it, Kemeticism and my spirituality in general. Like everything was on internal clockwork that just kept lining up for me.

My favorite "meditation" material is more "ambient" music than anything else, but I love it:
http://www.amazon.com/Ambient-Egypt-Sounds-Ancient-Sources/dp/B000059MZK

The usual recommendation for getting to know Netjer better is to just (in whatever way you like, be it lighting a candle and some incense-or whatever equivalent you can reasonably handle) open yourself up, LISTEN, speak your intent to let Them know you are looking for Them. They will show up. :)

Also, go through the course, see how it strikes you and keep an open mind, do your own research and follow your Ka! (Spirit, as it were)

Hope that helps.

I look at it in the context of, what is ma'at, is not neccessarily what we as humans in society think of as "acceptable"...for what it's worth.

I don't know on the incense, I don't really hear from Him I am beloved of Wepwawet...

I'm glad to hear it seems you're doing your best on a non-spiritual level, that's crucial. If you'd like to PM me, please feel free. I've been in a similar situation with an abusive ex and tough legal crap, so if you'd like to carry this conversation off the boards, I'm happy to oblige, though I won't be much help with the psychiatric situation. :)

When-ever you decide you're ready to take it on. It's a deep experience and a sort of responsibility, depending on how you think about it. You get your name from the Gods, through our Nisut if you decide to undergo the RPD (Rite of Parent Divination).

View? There is no "official" doctrine on that, but it's basically a non-issue as far as I can tell and we do not hate people because of who they love. :)

I've not heard of Bast partnering with other Goddesses, would you care to share the source of that info?

You don't neccesarily need a huge fancy production of a ritual to speak with the Gods & ask Their aid and assitance. Lighting a candle and praying to Yinepu (Anubis) with your son could be quite effective as a first step. You could do a dedication ritual to delineate your sons room as "Yinepu" (Anubis) space, he might like that, you could also dedicate a talisman for him to wear. There is nothing inherently Wiccan about any of that that, in fact the magic circle originated in Egypt...they did it a little differently, but they did do it and the emphasis was on "encircling" an area with Divine power. Of course purity was extremely important. You could ask Yinepu to help you & your son through the current difficulties, I hear He is good with "transformation"! I hope that sparks some ideas for you. :)

That aside, I echo what other have said here. I'm curious as to why no meds have been figured out for your child. I would push for another doc if this one hasn't helped you. And a Womens center may be a good resource too!

Quote from: Khukua
Em Hotep!

Natron:

So, I'm a bit confused about what natron is, and what you call natron. Strictly speaking, natron's chemical composition is Na2CO3•10(H2O). In order to make it, you would need soda ash, baking soda, and salt, or use sodium carbonate decahydrate and sea salt.

The use of baking soda and salt leaves something out of the chemical composition that makes it natron, rather than a natron wannabe. Which leaves me wondering about the "significance" of using "natron" when it isn't really natron that is being made and used, but rather a pseudo form of natron.
 



According to the MSDS for sodium carbonate/soda ash, it's a skin and eye irritant, as well as a respiratory hazard, so I think baking soda and salt is about as pure as I want to get!
