Em hotep,

Since you're not dependent on your parents for a roof over your head, I think you're in a strong position.  But there's no need to upset them unnecessarily, so you can keep up what you're already doing.

Speaking from my own personal experience, most parents never really see their children as independent adults, so they need to be reminded of this from time to time. If they somehow find out what you believe in and start to really get strident with you, you can always tell them that you're a contributing adult in the household who pays the rent; they can't control what you think or believe in.  I believe in respecting our parents and elders, but respect is a two-way street. 

You can also offer to move out since you say you've already lived successfully on your own.  I think this would give them pause if they start harassing you, especially if they're dependent on you financially.  But this is a worst case scenario that I hope never happens to you.

Checking in after a long absence, and this caught my attention...

From what I've gleaned through my study, experience and personal gnosis, Wepwawet manifests mainly as a wolf to me.  He is dual-aspected with Yinepu, and I've heard Him refer to Yinepu as his "little brother" in saq. Indeed, Wepwawet is thought to be one of the oldest of Egyptian deities, and it's speculated that His original pre-Dynastic animal form was a regional species of wolf.

This is not to say that Wepwawet can't be experienced as a jackal, especially since He became synchronized with Yinepu later on. Netjer reaches out to each of us according to our needs, and this includes symbolism, especially since wolves have been regarded negatively in various cultures (e.g. Western fairy tales) and may be frightening to some people.

So, wolf or jackal? I believe Wepwawet can be both. "It's all good, it's all God." :)

Em hotep, Gleb,

That the sides in our personality that we were forced to push aside can be of a lot of use in different situations, if used properly.

This is very true.  Many people think of Shadow as their "bad self," when it can also be a survival mechanism that can help us in difficult situations if we learn how to control and channel it correctly. 

For example, the training that our military puts soldiers through is designed (consciously or not) to unlock Shadow in order for them to be able to operate in environments that are dangerous, and to do things in their jobs as protectors and defenders that normal civilians would find repellent.  Unfortunately, our military doesn't bother with programs that put Shadow to rest when our soldiers are back from deployments; hence, the large amounts of PTSD cases we see.

We need to get comfortable with Shadow and not regard it as some sort of malignant opponent, but as a necessary component of ourselves and a tool to our better evolution.

Em hotep!

Cost Plus World Market is ones of my faves, along with Pier One.  It's easy to find sake cups and small plates for libations and offerings at these places.

My statuary is catch-as-catch can, usually "appearing" as my Parents direct.  ;)

Like others here, Morning Star incense is my go-to primarily because I hear it's ritually pure for Shinto practice.  I use the sandalwood variety.  It's usually found in any store that sells incense, or of course online.


I wouldn't say that Yinepu thus far has told me anything I don't want to hear, but I find myself surprised by his answers a lot, and he says things I'm not expecting.

This is part of a true gnostic revelation in my book.  :)

Hotep, Lillium!

The following article entitled "Am I Hearing a God or Am I Going Crazy?" addresses a lot of concerns that newcomers to gnostic revelations have.  Although it's not written from a Kemetic perspective, it contains some good insights.

My personal answer to this question is "A god will usually tell you something you don't want to hear."  ;)  Not always, of course, but if you seek Their help, They will confront you with work you need to do on your end.

Welcome to our boards, Dan!  :)

Liz, my family tolerates my beliefs at best, and I know it's going to stay that way.  If you're living at home, it's best not to cause a stir about this.  But even when (and if) you're on your own, you really can't open anyone's mind when s/he is intent on keeping the door shut.  I've found people of "like mind" and am content with that.
