[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / Re: RPD - Payment
« on: June 28, 2015, 07:19:54 am »
If you pay for goods and services, the receiver of the money will have to pay the Paypal transaction fees, but then the purchaser will have Paypal buyer protection.

If you pay for friends and family, the purchaser will pay the Paypal transaction fees, but then will not have the buyer protection.

I believe the fees are something like 2% of the amount paid + 30c, but this may differ country to country and it has also recently changed, but I can't remember how much or in what way.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / New Names
« on: January 02, 2015, 07:06:06 pm »
I have had a new name appear to me and it's proving to be difficult to get to know anything about them.

Sia - the god of knowledge/perception.

From what I can find in the limited search here, he works in conjunction with Hu and Heka and he doesn't have his own worship center.  Can anyone tell me anything else? (or point me to some sources)

Thanks!

Iait

I am getting a pull back here, although I am no sure at what capacity.  I've decided to take it as it comes and to approach with new, open eyes.

I have evolved a lot spiritually and while I was asked by my Gods to step back from the faith, resulting in me returning to Divined Remetj after being a Shemsu for many years, they have encouraged me to return.  I think I needed to learn some aspects of myself that I was blocking while focusing on my love of Kemet.  Stepping back allowed me the freedom to explore these other aspects (even though technically I could have still done it while remaining an active Shemsu).

So where am I at?  I am still not entirely sure.  I've continued to label myself as Kemetic Orthodox so for me, nothing really changed, other than the Divined Remetj label on the forums.  In fact, I still considered myself a Shemsu when talking to Yinepu, Satet and Amun-Ra.

I've now learned a lot about secondary beliefs I have and how they work, and don't work, with my Kemetic beliefs.  I have also had a large confirmation of the Gods for myself (even though I didn't really need it).

For those who don't know me, I am Iait Yinepu (which means Worshiping/Adoring Yinepu).  I first became a Shemsu in 2005 and dropped back to Divined Remetj in 2014.  I am considering returning to Shemsuhood again this year.  I am not sure how many chats I'll be able to attend, but hope to come to the odd few.  I am also available for chatting/interaction on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ccenta

Thanks for reviving the thread though, MiMafdet...  Thought I'd let everyone know that the statue pretty much goes by the name Mut, and that's it, these days.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Daily Life as a Kemetic Follower
« on: March 04, 2013, 02:03:09 am »
1. Do you perform any private rituals at your house, such as prayers or ancestor veneration?

Yes, I do, but not nearly as often as I'd like to.   I attempt to regularly do Senut, which is the formal ritual of the Kemetic Orthodox faith.   I also try to attend to my shrines daily, including a prayer as I do and often do informal prayers throughout the day.   My ancestor veneration tends to happen only when there is a date associated with them (such as their date of birth or death), but I occasionally remember to do something on the 6th day festival (which is intended for the ancestors)

2. Do you have a shrine at your home to a specific god, goddess, or ancestor?
Yes, I have many shrines, that together make one large shrine that are all housed in the same display unit.   I have my Senut shrine, which is dedicated to the formal rites and house my parent and beloved (line-up) icons (Yinepu-Wepwawet, Satet and Amun-Ra).  This is a closed section that I only open for the formal rites, unless there is a festival honoured to one of my own Gods.
I have a festival shrine, which has a boat that I place a card with the image of the Name in festival and place offering.  
I have a shrine of Ma'at, which I dedicate to the Goddess of the name and to represent balance within my household.  
I have an ancestor Shrine, which contains the names of my ancestors and any images I have or mementos for them.
I have a shrine dedicated to Yinepu-Wepwawet (my Parent God) which I use for more informal type rituals/attendance.
I have a couple of other shrines dedicated to other non-kemetic beliefs.

3. Have you participated in any of the major rituals, such as during the New Year celebration?
I celebrate WepRonpet (New Year) every year with my family before my shrine.  I have not formally participated in any rituals with the House of Netjer as I live too far away.  I do intend on doing it at least once in the future (hopefully sooner, rather than later)

4. Do you have any costume or body decoration that you associate with Kemetism, such as a tattoo or jewelry?
I don't have any permanent decoration (such as tattoo) but I do wear an Ankh and Cartouche (housing my Kemetic Name) on a neck chain that I only take off for Gymnastics.

5. Do you believe your ancestors have an affect on your life or that they are looking after you? (I know this is very personal, so you can skip this if it makes you uncomfortable).
Yes, I do.   I have many spiritual guides and some of them are family guides and some of them are ancestors.   My Great grandmother watches over our family and my Great Aunt has come to be before.

6. Do you combine elements of Kemetism with another religion, such as Christianity?
My primary belief is Kemetic Orthodoxy, though I do explore other beliefs and embrace some practices as I learn them.   Currently I am exploring the Druidic path, but I have taken things from Christianity (Jehovah Witness), Buddhism, Wicca, Traditional Witchcraft, Dragonic Witchcraft, Taoism, Hinduism and some of the Celtic, Roman and Greek Pantheons.  

I currently have shrines dedicated to the dragons (Dragonic Wicca), Poseidon (Greek) and Kahli (Hindu).

7. Do you believe in magic or try to focus your energies to improve your life or the lives of your loved ones?  Yes, very much so.  

8. Do you have objects in your home that you associate with Kemetism, such as statues of gods or goddesses?
Yes, I have many.  I have three statues (that I bought from Egypt) that represent my Line-up (Yinepu-Wepwawet, Satet and Amun-Ra), two more statues of Yinepu-Wepwawet, one of Aset, one of Bast-Mut, smaller icons of Yinepu, Bast, Khonsu and Ra (although this one is broken).  I have 3 Pyramids, 2 small and one large scarab and 4 pictures on papyrus.  I have a cupboard full of books dedicated to Kemeticsm too.

I am happy to answer ANY questions about my personal practices (provided they do not go against any terms/conditions that I have agreed to within the faith).  I can be contacted here or email (readings_by_caroline@hotmail.com) or Facebook .

Iait, that's an amazing setup! You should submit it to Shrine Beautiful as well.

Setken, most of my statues are from Cairo.  It was a great experience at the bazaar.  One of the guys was such a great actor - he even pulled out the tears saying that he was already giving it to us for less than he paid for them, and then dropped the price more and threw in some scarabs.   We ended up buying most of them off him, just because he gave us a great experience.

My Ma'at statue was a gift from my sister in law, who happily exclaimed that it was a statue of Isis that she had found especially for me.

I can confirm Yinepu liking pennies (I have to pick up each one I see unless they are totally grimy and set them on a specific plate for Him) and ball-bearings as well.  He also requests crow feathers from me(my collection is over 300 at this point) and dark blue sea glass.


I have the exact same experience (well not quite so many crow feathers, and not the glass) with Yinepu myself... I started getting a large collection of coins that I come across for him.

I will have to echo Tabau's sentiments.   For the sake of peace, minimalise exposure to others.   I know it seems counterproductive to freedom of speech and religion, but at the end of the day your own comfort and safety are what is important.  

It's not to say you can't worship - as that is personal.   But perhaps pack it all away until you're in a place that's your own or with those who are understanding and accepting.

I have heard of such experiences before.  And I have had such experiences with other Names.   Whether it's intention on their part or coincidence I think will depend on the situation, the Name and the person involved.

Not to mention that not everyone gets to come online to see a post the moment it's made.   I replied as soon as I saw the post.

From a quick look around, the Khu is the term used to describe the ka and ba together.  When we are living as humans, they are all but one component so take on a new description.   Kind of like an oreo is made of biscuit and cream, and you can still see the two individual components (being biscuit and cream), but when they are together they become the one thing - the oreo.

The Ab (also known as Ib) refers to the heart (more so the metaphysical than the physical) which is the control center of our emotions, thoughts, will and intention.
