Em hotep Amaset and welcome to the boards.

It really could be either way.  Are there any other datails or symbols in the dreams (perhaps the animals chase you toward or away from a certain thing) that would lead you to think they are messages?  Do you commonly have this type of dream, but they only recently feature animals related to the Neteru?  
Anyways, your best bet for finding out would be to go to the source and ask Them if the dreams are communications or not.

I personally don't have a problem with blending multiple paths, so long as this is what works best for you.  Using something out of its historic/cultural context or making one's own synthesized path would drive some folks nuts.  Others find that maintaining strict boundaries is too restrictive.  

If Aset really fits the role of Divine Mother to you, and She agrees, then I would say go ahead and try worshiping Her in the format of the Sufi prayer.  Just be careful not to mix things around haphazardly just because it seems neat, and be sure to keep a respectful attitude towards the sources of the things you are mixing.

I'll have to echo some of the other responses and say that I don't think there is anything particularly spiritual about these issues.  Mental differences, disabilities, and disorders are like physical ones and are just a part of the world.  I dought they are caused by demon attacks or a divine conspiracy to make your life difficult.

Well that's nice to know. :)

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: A Question on Temples
« on: November 06, 2010, 11:59:09 pm »
Now I'm not a very social person (yeah, big surprise), but having a network of temples would be cool, if only for the sake of art and historical authenticity.  

On a more practical note, there are way better uses for money than constructng elaborate religious buildings.  That goes for all religions.  Instead of building and maintaining giant churches, let's end world hunger or something. :)

Worship, I think, is done best in private.  State rituals are not open to the public so a public temple in which to do them wouldn't serve much purpose.  Meetings can be done just about anywhere, which is basically what is already done with the meet-ups.  What we've got is good enough for now.  Folks are so spread out that most of us wouldn't live near temples even if there were more of them.

Taqaisenu, your analogy is brilliant. :)

I think of maat as kinda like karma, but not in the commonly understood sense of getting rewards for good deeds and cosmic punishment for bad ones.  A Hindu speaker I hear said something about karma being the taking of complete responsibility for one's actions and their consequences.  Everything that happens to you is somehow influenced by something you have done (or not done).  That sounded very maat-like to me.  

And now for some wild speculation
Isfet would be the opposite: attempting to reject the consequences of your actions.  Isfet, the Uncreated, the nonexistent trying to undo creation.  Of course, for every action there must be a reaction, and denying the reaction cannot make it disappear.  Maat always triumphs.  
Disallowing your typical evil acts would make sense here because one would really want to deny the nasty effects.  And why would anyone reject the positive things they have caused?

Em hotep Amanda.  I hope you find your time here well spent. :)

Quote from: Sobekemiti

I had Amun show up out of the blue a few weeks before Opet and He's been around since then. Never had any inkling He was going to turn up. Just one day, there He is, and He wants to be friends. Companions, that was the word He used. Getting to know Him has been very interesting, and He is suggesting brain-breaking things to me like 'Sobek is Amun is Ra' which just makes my head hurt to think about it. Thanks, dude. Much appreciated.

Amun likes to break brains.  It's a hobby of His. :)

Tufnut unexpectedly popped up out of nowhere and has been sticking around for the past few months.  She seems to be pulling me towards magic and divination, which I've never really invested much time in before.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Your Shemsu Name and You
« on: October 15, 2010, 07:48:38 pm »
1.) What is your shemsu name and meaning?
Kehawiitu, which means "raising my voice for my fathers"

2.) What is your RPD lineup?
Son of Amun-Ra and Set, Beloved of Serqet-Aset and Heru-wer

3.) How long have you been named, and how long did you wait before being named?
I've been named for about three months.  After getting the RPD I waited for about two months (I think) before getting named.

4.) Are there any interesting puns in your name that you have heard of? Please share them if you're willing to.
Don't know of any.

5.)Did you try to figure out what your name would be before you got it? If so, were you close?
Nah, didn't try because failure was inevitable. :)

6.) Did you use any Kemetic names before you got your Shemsu name? If so, what were they and what did they mean?
No, I did not use any Kemetic name before.

I suppose I'll take this opportunity to come out on this forum as an FTM transsexual.  

From an early age I identified with and wanted to be a boy.  These feeling intensified with time until, when I was going half crazy, I did some research in my early teens and found out that transgendered people existed.  Coming to terms with what I was wasn't very difficult, but it took a year and a half for me to work up the nerve to tell someone, who was my mother.  She was very accepting and supportive about it.  The rest of the family eventually found out.  Reactions were, and still are, mixed, but nobody has been openly hostile, which is more than I could have hoped for.

I dressed as a guy through most of high school, but never came out there.  The harassment was bad enough already, and the school never did anything about it.  Going to college gave me the opportunity to transition without making a scene.  It has worked out quite well.  I'm not very vocal about being trans, but if it seems important or someone asks I don't hide it.

Honestly, it sounds like noise to me.  But then again, I don't have ears for music. :)  Thanks for sharing this anyways.
