Do you know where I can find this myth of Nit?
Mostly in the works of Serge Sauneron. Sadly these are (a) out of print, (b) very expensive, and (c) written in French! But I come across partial translations, extracts, and quotes in unexpected and seemingly unrelated academic papers and books (like one I came across this morning included in The Wisdom of Thoth: Magical Texts in Ancient Mediterranean Civilisations[!]), and of course in popular books like Lesko’s, so I piece it together from those.

I love the creation myth recorded at Esna that involves Nit as Creatrix and Mother of Ra (because Mom, of course!).

And for modern/timeless amusement involving Set and other Names, I follow Godslave web comic.

I love Mafdet! She appears to me as a cheetah.
She is usually on my right-hand side. I find she protects me from external things.
(In contrast to Wadjet, on my left-hand side, who protects me from myself! ;D )
I occasionally cook her a blue steak as an offering.

Shaseni... is that who I think it is?! Nekhtet on your RPD! I knew you'd be a child of Set and Nit!

Thank you!! Yes, it’s exactly who you think it is! And yes, we both knew. :D

[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Re: My name is Sesbetisenu.
« on: September 14, 2020, 07:49:08 pm »
Em hotep! It's lovely to meet you, Sesbetisenu. You are certainly welcome, or welcome back again! Like Zep Tepi, it sounds like a chance to renew.

How to proceed now? I'd make sure that your email address is current with the House so you get the nightly event announcement email. I also send out monthly newsletters to those addresses. You can read the current one here: https://www.netjer.org/forums/index.php?topic=24449.0

We still have IRC going, though official Duas are also simulcast in a special Discord channel. So if forums aren't your thing, but more conversational chat is—albeit religion centered—and you like a sense of community, you might like to consider the Official House of Netjer Discord server. You can find out how to join here: http://www.kemet.org/members/discord-info

I look forward to meeting you again online!

Senebty,
Shaseni

Do you want the perfect gift for Someone Special (which could even be yourself!)? Then keep watching these forums...

Because on Set's Birthday—in just two days time, yikes!—we'll be announcing a very special opportunity you won't want to miss.

And you'll be able to find a home for some of the money burning a hole in your pocket (after coming in second with that auction bid ::)). ;D

But I've promised not to say anymore until then.  8)

Em hotep and welcome, Lyra!

Sekhmet does that! She did exactly the same for me 15 years ago when I lived in Scotland (Hi, Amaranthos!). ;D

The Beginners' Class is great — well worth the time and effort, in my opinion.

Hope to see more of you.
Senebty,

Em hotep, North Spirit! And a very warm welcome to you. :D

Quote
Were any of you ever worried about diving into KO?
Yes! I wondered whether it would have a blinkered view compared to other Kemetic groups and paths. (I found the complete reverse to be the case.) I wondered whether it would be shallow or whether instead it would ‘have a heart.’ (It does.) I wondered about the idea of having a Nisut or King. (All misgivings dissolved a few weeks into the Beginners’ Class.)

Quote
When did you know that this was the path for you?
It was a two stage process. Firstly, the Netjeru I already worked with encouraged me to join the Beginners’ Class. Secondly, shortly after starting the Class, the misgivings I mentioned above disappeared, and I started to encounter other Netjeru. It became quite clear that this was Home. I think for many the Class helps people make up their mind.

Quote
Had you worked with the Netjeru before becoming a Remetj/Shemsu/Shemsu-Ankh?
Yes. Sekhmet had sorted out a difficult life situation for me fifteen years before. She, Hethert and Ma’at had helped me start writing novels two years ago. At that time, none of it was really part of a religious practice.

Quote
What are little things I can do to welcome the Netjeru and Ma'at into my life since I can’t take the online class quite yet?
You‘ve already begun! Making contact here is a big step. And in addition to what others have said, I’d suggest two things. Firstly, try keeping a diary of your impressions, your thoughts, and experiences, questions to ask and lessons learned. Secondly, consider wearing a piece of jewelry to remind you. I bought my first pendant when I was 16: it was an ankh! And when the Netjeru started prodding two years ago, I got a little silver sistrum to put on a neck chain.

I look forward to hearing more from you!

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Nit-Nebthet-Seshat?
« on: March 14, 2020, 01:47:56 pm »
Yes, I think it’s important to know that Nit-Nebthet-Seshat is/are regarded within Kemetic Orthodoxy as aspects, and not a syncretization. Hemet makes this clear in several forum posts over the years. In other words, They are not fused to make a fourth single separate Name.

Of the Three, I’ve so far experienced Nit much more than the other Two. And yet Nit has shown very many sides of Herself to me. When She first appeared, She came over as strong, confident, terse, and almost overwhelmingly and head-swimmingly powerful. Later I saw Her as sharp, precise, focused, like a master archer. I’ve seen Her as detached, matter-of-fact, and almost businesslike. I’ve seen Her as a teacher of heka and an inspirer of creative art. Often She seems a young mature woman wearing the deshret, but I’ve glimpsed Her as Creatrix, manipulating primal waters, and unimaginably old. And I see Her warm and motherly, someone Who is proud of Her child, and Who sometimes fusses about my health and appearance!

When I was changing my avatar after RPD and Naming, several people commented on how ‘metal’ the meaning of my name was, with two very powerful parents! However, despite Her association with bows, arrows, shields, and her reputation as a huntress and warrior, She wanted none of that. Instead I was to emphasize Her regality.

Seshat I’ve experienced directly rather less so far. She has helped me recalling and recording  dreams. She promises to aid me when I am writing novels.

I recall Nebt-het from Her epagomenal festival. She introduced Herself gently, and wanted an offering of milk, promising that I’d hear from Her a lot more in the future.

Nit-Nebthet-Seshat is my Divine Mother, and I have Set as my Divine Father. It’s interesting that in different myths at different times, Set’s consort is variously named as Nebt-het or Nit, and that Sobek is the result of that latter union. And yet as Nit in myth as Creatrix, She needs no partner to create Ra and the other Gods.
