[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: WANT TO SEE YOUR SHRINE PICTURES
« on: April 08, 2019, 11:11:55 pm »
Those are GORGEOUS photos, Shenuty. What a beautiful shrine!

On The Temple Steps has so kindly added my Mafdet commission to their Shapeways shop. While mine was handmade with bronze clay, I can't attest for the Shapeways quality from their store specifically.

>However.<

I just received another item from Shapeways today that is incredibly high quality (polished bronze) and seems incredibly sturdy and well-printed. They make a number of small shrine votives and amulets and take requests for new gods to be commissioned.

Senebty,

MiMafdet

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: No Shrine
« on: August 27, 2014, 08:22:02 pm »
That would be very acceptable, of course. Some people use no shrine at all at times.

I've created a "psychic shrine" where I meditate and go to it for my rituals when I'm in a place I cannot set up any shrine whatsoever. (For rituals other than Senut, of course)

I've used an Altoids tin, tea candle, matchbook, pencil lead holder, and an incense holder to construct my shrine. I use Shoyeido incense and they come with the incense holder.   This is one I made for a friend (devotee of Hades and Nyx). The incense is easily stored in the pencil lead holder and everything fits neatly into the Altoids tin. I've personally made a few of these and crafted a very small mini icon of a god to place in them.  

Of course, it is always best to avoid confrontation with family so please keep that in mind. Family is a huge part of Kemetic teachings, and Netjer is patient.

Ma'ahes seems appropriate, too, since He is associated with reeds, being hidden in reeds, and I've seen Him in fields of reeds.
Mafdet also has appeared as a very large cat to me, and only appears in theat form. to Mi, she is a melanistic Jaguar much of the time.

Perhaps he can ask who the cat is. I usually do in the case of a new being. I usually state that if they're there with intent to harm, that they are not welcome. I'll then ask if they'll tell me their name, if they do intend to harm me, and if they're ving vague I'll start asking yes/no questions "Are you Bast? Are you Ma'ahes? Are you Sekhmet?" etc.

My two cents. ^-^

Sweet! Thank you for sharing!

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / Mimi's surgery
« on: June 04, 2014, 08:07:57 pm »
Em hotep, brothers and sisters. I would like to ask for prayers during the recovery process for my pilonidal cystectomy (Googlers, there are squeamy pictures on Google, please search carefully)
They took a LOT of scar tissue (and more!) from the area at the tip of my tailbone, so I'm quite sore. Last time I had it done, my stitches popped, so I'm really hoping these hold better. (New doctor, new technique)

Thank you for prayers and energies sent.

If it seems ramble-y or doesn't make sense, I apologize. Painkillers make Mi loopy...

I take my formal Senut shrine down out of respect for my grandparents while they are here. I set up a shelf in my room for informal worship until they return to Florida. When I set my Senut shrine back up, I rededicate everything. but, I have more icons than necessary/wanted for Senut. I keep the others on their respective shelves and areas as an informal shrine to the Names that aren't in my lineup. Or to HetHert. because She wants Her own space full of AGIs and dried flowers and everything that smells good. <3
It is good you wish to start with Senut prior to the beginner's class. I highly recommend (as is recommended in said class) that you keep the shrine neutral- that is to say, not have any specific Name's icons on your Senut shrine, at least until you have decided whether the House is right for you and/or get your RPD done. it helps you focus less on one Name and helps you open up more to other Names you have yet to meet.
I think the next class is in September, just to let you know... in case that's not too soon, you should still be able to join! :) So wonderful to meet you.

« on: June 16, 2013, 11:34:37 am »
There are a couple people here who do repairs. Ibu is my go-to guy. :3 Amazing repair and conversion works.
As far as "decommissioning" the item, I don't know about a "proper" way to go about it, but perhaps a prayer over it while wrapping it in linen would work? If you wanted to decommission it and not have it displayed any longer, but still keep it around, perhaps find a nice permanent home/box for it to rest in? Maybe do this the same time you consecrate/dedicate its "replacement".

I've always enjoyed the thought of passing on an icon to someone less fortunate than I who needs it, even if it was broken. That way, it is still used. Personally, I have come to love broken and used statues (with the countless that have broken in the mail on the way here...), because you get to feel the love that resides within, while putting your own energy into fixing it. :)

This makes me absolutely sick... x.x
