[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Nit-Nebhtet-Seshat
« on: September 24, 2017, 01:42:19 pm »


My Mother turned out to be Aset-Serqet; I have a little trouble with Aset (due to my personal history with my family), so I'm approaching from the Serqet end and moving toward Aset.  I gather many Aset-Serqet people experience Her as VERY strongly and definitely Aset doing Serqet's work, but it heartens me to know there's precedent (both personally and historically) for approaching an aspected Name from the "back end" so to speak.

Also, if you ever want to talk about our Mother, please feel free to send me a personal message.

Em hotep,

I'm a beloved of Seshat-Nit-NebtHet, and my Seshat is very NebtHet heavy. I experience Her as an incredibly vast and silent presence. Ironically, She is the only name who has directly spoken to me; it was towards the end of the beginner's class, before I decided whether or not to have my RPD, and She whispered Her name to me. I didn't even know who She was before that. I still waited quite a few months after finishing the class to go through with the RPD, but it was ultimately my experience with Seshat that decided me. I take this to mean that even though I experience Her as a somewhat passive presence, She is actually very active and dynamic.

I've not connected with Nit directly, though I suspect that the vastness I feel from Seshat comes from Her and that the silence comes from NebtHet.

Senebty,

Em hotep Salqu,

In my opinion, it is helpful to remember that the Names don't get upset in the human context of that word/emotion. They want us to better ourselves, not arbitrarily throw out punishments for things that we can't possibly know we're doing wrong. My advice would be to calm down and really search for what your feeling from Yinepu. Where do you feel he is taking you? What areas of your life can you improve in? Are you using time effectively for your growth? Do you feel like you're promoting Ma'at in your daily life? Asking ourselves these questions can often lead to their own answers. If that doesn't yield results, maybe try some form of divination. Just remember that the Names guide us from a place of love. They don't destroy our lives to prove a point; they walk with us through our hardships to guide us to the points they've been making all along.

Em hotep sibling,
I thought I would also chime in that our Mother is the Great of Heka, so if you're doing something that requires really intense heka, She is always an appropriate Name to approach. Feel free to PM me if you want to talk about any Aset things!

Yinepu kind of definitely is my parent. I have been doing Nisut near daily since before I knew what Nisut was. I hope her holiness will agree especially considering the unforuitousness of my military training being during the beginner's class, Yinepu's birthday and Wep Ronpet -_- forgive me if I seem mad I'm just a little stressed.
Em hotep,

I think your missing what everyone is trying to convey. The beginner's class is not what leads to the RPD. The beginner's class leads to being a Remetj. Only a Remetj can receive the Right of Parent Divination i.e. beginner's class = Remetj and later, maybe, Remetj = RPD, assuming that the Remetj decides that they're ready. If you won't be able to undertake the required steps to become a Remetj because of military training, then you'll probably just have to wait until such time as you can. You're welcome to talk to a priest about this, but to my knowledge, there is no way to become a Remetj without taking the beginners class, and the RPD would most certainly never be given to someone outside of the community. It is a right of passage, which necessarily means that you must pass through something.

Senebty,

This concept is actually quite new to me, it is rather interesting. I would like to learn more about it and probably have it done. I have always thought of Yinepu as a rather fatherly figure to me, this seems like a lovely way to honour him and the fatherly bond I have with him. I do hope he appreciates it.

NOTE: I am aware that this is something the Nisut must do after one completes the beginner's course, which I have not done. I hope I may be able to have it done beforehand though? I have been a Kemetic for a while now and I wouldn't call myself a beginner, though there is much I probably do not know. I have signed up for it but unfortunately the next one occurs during my military training, so I will not be able to engage.
Em hotep,

The beginners course must be completed before any individual can become a Remetj of KO. The Rite of Parent Divination is a rite of passage in our community for Remetj who decide that they are ready, and I think the updated bylaws specify that a regular practice of Senut is suggested for several months before the divination.

That is to say, there's not really a way around the beginners class and it doesn't follow that you get an RPD afterwards, but rather that it is an avenue of possibility after becoming a Remetj. Also, the beginner's class is for those new to Kemetic Orthodoxy, to give a foundational knowledge in what we do here, even if you are not new to Kemeticism.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Set and anger
« on: March 16, 2017, 12:35:56 am »
Asetemsatweret, okay, I can agree with it, especially if we define Ma'at as "good".
The other thing, we can define it as "lawful"  :)
I would agree with the definition of lawful so long as we recognize that the laws of Ma'at are not always the same as human laws or human social norms. In this way, I could perceive where someone might view Set, or any of the Netjeru for that matter, as chaotic. His/their actions will necessarily go beyond the scope of our understanding sometimes, even to the point of appearing chaotic. Now from my understanding, Set does have a particular knack for this, but I don't personally interact with Him enough to know first hand.

Why don't you think He could be chaotic neutral or even chaotic evil? What's so wrong with anger? I don't believe He tame it, I think He knows how to deal with it.

Actually, via KO theology, the Netjeru are never evil or even neutral. They are each the individual manifestations of the divine power, Netjer, in accordance with Ma'at. We may not always perceive the full scope of or reasons behind the things they do, but they act in accordance with Ma'at and are thusly never evil. Even Set, as misunderstood as he might be sometimes , is good.  He still rides at the prow of the barque of millions of years ready to fend off and destroy Ap-p.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / HetHert as midwife
« on: March 14, 2017, 11:24:44 am »
Em hotep family,

I was recently contemplating an image of HetHert in an attempt to feel more connected to Her, and I realized that my conceptualization of Her is that of an older woman, and particularly as a midwife.

I did some Googling, and apparently the temple at Dendera was a center for midwifery, but I had trouble finding anymore information than that. I was curious if anyone has experience of Her in this aspect or any sources that relate to HetHert specifically as midwife?

It seems odd that this is the form She would take with me as I'm a cis man, but here I am.

Any responses are appreciated.

Senebty,
Emsa

Em hotep! While it's not a strictly Kemetic association, Aset did take on a maritime association under the Ptolomies with the influence of Greek culture. One of Her biggest festivals after Her worship had spread out of Egypt into the Roman empire was the Navigium Isidis, which was closely associated with the sea and sailing. Not exactly a tie to sharks, though.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Dietary choices and the Gods
« on: January 22, 2017, 03:21:30 pm »
Em hotep,
I'm also a son of Aset. I don't eat fish, and I know that my days with pork are numbered.

I actually think that if Names are associated with animals, it makes offerings from that animal more appropriate/special. Offering HetHert milk for example might be considered especially appropriate, but I could be remembering incorrectly. For example, the reason many children of Aset don't eat pork isn't because it's associated with Her, but rather because it is associated with Set. However, in antiquity you might find mummified Kites, which are associated with Her, presented as offerings to Her in temples. Also, honey was and still is a big offering, and offerings of fowl are often used in various formulae.

That being said, some of the most staple and well received offerings are simple and animal product free ie bread, beer, cool water etc. Also, it's possible for you to offer the heka of something in place of the actual thing. For example, if you are trying to follow a specific offertory formula and it requires an offering of honey,  you could say "I make an offering of honey" and give henu. That would be considered as good as giving the actual thing, but you wouldn't have to purchase animal products.

I hope this helps!

Senebty,
Emsa
