And for Teritui
"My Wesir seems to be a bit more "loud" than how other people experience Him, though He does love metaphors and making you work to understand what He's trying to say, lol. "

Oh good! Someone else that gets him a little louder than most. I find the same thing with metaphors with him.  For me he is a very nurturing Father, complete with the puns and dry humor. <3

Thanks for listening to my rambling, and to you all for sharing what you have on the topic.

Senebty!

Em Hotep, Djedet! I can get Wesir quiet and loud depending on who is appearing as. Wesir as King of the Dead for me is quiet and sometimes serious while Wesir as Ptah-Sokar-Wesir is loud and creative. I see them as two different Gods, two different Fathers but both connected. My RPD confuses me sometimes. I've been catching up and going over some notes. My father is the tri-syncretic Ptah-Sokar-Wesir. Here's the thing that confuses me. Late period Ptah-Sokar-Wesir where Wesir is more prominent is tri-aspected. Sooo I'm like up at night trying to figure out what period is my father maybe Middle period.

I'm a daughter of Ptah-Sokar-Wesir. For me, my Father is very Wesir-centric. Hemet (AUS) said it's possible I'm experiencing a form from the later periods, when the syncratic god was mostly concentrated on Wesir.

I think the best way I could describe Him would be a "louder" Wesir than people usually describe, less concentrated on Kingship/Kingliness and more about creation.

Em Hotep, Teritui! Hi sister dear, finally I have a sibling after so many years of waiting. I was divined way back in 2006. You described our father perfectly. He is a louder Wesir who is more about creation. Ptah-Sokar-Wesir can be syncratic or aspected. In my RPD he is syncratic. I have so much info on Ptah-Sokar-Wesir tucked away in my computer. I even saved some quotes from Hemet on Ptah-Sokar-Wesir that I will message you later.

Em hotep Taysat!

OMG, how are YOU?!  I think about you all the time, and it is so good to see you again! I still have the Lord of the Rings Tarot deck you gave me so many years ago!

Anyway, sorry for freaking out there a little. This has just made me very happy. XD

Senebty!

Em Hotep, Djedet! I remember you and your husband KhaiPtah. No worries about freaking out I understand. I'm happy to see your Wesir site is back. FYI I've been reading all the new Wesir posts here and on your site cause I'm a hopeless Wesir fangirl especially when you add Ptah-Sokar-Wesir to the mix. 😍❤

Taysat!! I was just thinking about you. How are you? What have you been up to? Are you still in New York?

It’s so good to see you again!

Hiii Sobek, I'm good thanks for asking. I'm still in good ole New York. I got into mobile gaming and even started promoting two games on Facebook and Twitter. I live stream twice a week on YouTube. It's a hobby that keeps me busy and I've made quite a few friends from it. I decided this year that I going to train to become a Dialysis Technician. I learned a lot about Dialysys and Kidney disease from my Mother (who is also a tech) and it always interested me. What a coincidence that this occured on the year of Sekhmet and Ma'at.

I like to think of Them as a plant. Sokar is a seed deep in the ground, a still point of space-time that contains within Himself all possibilities. Wesir is the plant sprouting, a life coming from the darkness of the Duat. Ptah is the plant flowering, creating new life in the world around it. They are all different, but the same plant, the same Ptah-Sokar-Wesir.

I loved the way you described my father. It reminds me of the Wesir corn mummies.

Hello, Everyone! It seems like I haven't visited here in forever. I'm Taysatwesir, sat Wesir as Ptah-Sokar-Wesir, meryt Mut, Ma'ahes, Bast, and Hethert-Sekhmet. I've missed you guys so much.

Welcome back, and good to meet you! So sorry to hear about your brother.

I see you are "Sat Wesir as Ptah-Sokar-Wesir." I don't think I've seen such before. Might you be able to explain what it means?

Wesir chose to come in the form of the tripartite Ptah-Sokar-Wesir. Some people have Ptah appearing as Ptah-Sokar-Wesir. I'm not so sure if anyone has Sokar or even Wesir appearing as Ptah-Sokar-Wesir please correct me if I'm wrong. So far I'm the only child of Ptah-Sokar-Wesir but I have had hopes there would be another one by now.

That was a very interesting to read thanks for sharing Sedjfai. I love reading anything about Wesir, Ptah-Sokar, and Ptah-Sokar-Wesir so this was a treat. :)

Em hotep nefer, Rehen! :D

Wesir, for me, comes as "a package" with Herishef. They're separate, but rather "attached" as deities in many respects. Indeed, when I was Divined, They specifically requested to occupy the same Beloved-space, while emphasizing that They're not precisely the same deity and weren't acting entirely syncretically.

Because Wesir "comes with/as" Herishef, there's a more vigorous and, for lack of better terms, a more "directly aggressive" personality to Him. Herishef is the epitome of Divine Majesty -- the terms "shefy(t)" and "shefshefyt" are frequently rendered with His ram-foreparts ideogram in it, and Wesir becomes tied-up in that particular Ram-God-laden conception of majesty-and-terror, especially but not exclusively within the Book of the Dead, post-Dynasties IX & X -- and that Divine Majesty frequently involves what is aggressive, violent, and terrifying, and not just what is invitingly glorious and awing. Even without Herishef in the picture, Wesir has occasion to be this way, though usually other deities act that aggression out for Him and on behalf of Him, as Geraldine Pinch made note of throughout Egyptian Myth: A Very Short Introduction. Griffiths makes note of similar, albeit in much greater detail than Pinch, throughout The Origins of Osiris and His Cult, and the violence and aggression of Wesir is shown, among a variety of places/instances, in His association with the irascible Ram-God Kherty within the Pyramid Texts. (pp. 173 - 174) Wesir isn't so much "passive" as He is enduring, persistent, and calculating. He is profoundly strong in the way that smooth-running waters are deep, to put it one way. His kind of strength is much more subtle than, say, Set's kind of strength, but They are definitely equally strong in Their ways and are at times comparably vigorous and aggressive. This doesn't translate to "meanness" toward the devotee, mind.

Concerning incense, I second Rev. Mesetibes' suggestion. Cedar is well-received all around, being highly fragrant and a substance that naturally repels insects. :) Myrrh is another incense that is pleasing to all the Netjeru, and doesn't come from endangered sources as (genuine) frankincense does, though frankincense is also choice if you can find and afford ethically-sourced frankincense. I have been wanting to try Mendesian oil, which another Kemetic I know of makes, but I haven't tried his blend yet. It was one of the major luxury-exports of Djedet, the best-known cult center of my Father Banebdjedet. Banebdjedet and Wesir were/are closely associated, so I don't imagine it going over poorly. ;) Eucalyptus isn't traditional, but I find that Wesir/Herishef like eucalyptus oil-infused candles. It has a very bright, fresh scent, and like cedar it happens to repel (most) insects. :) All oils are flammable, but eucalyptus oil is EXTREMELY flammable, so if you're using straight eucalyptus oil in your shrine as opposed to candles whose wax is infused with a few drops of eucalyptus, do be careful.

Where food-offerings are concerned:

Bread, beer, and water are standard fare for all the Netjeru, and are always well-received. Wesir is no exception in that respect -- just giving bread and water will effectively satisfy Him; I've never had a bad reaction to that simple offering, by Wesir or any of the other Netjeru. Water in particular is absolutely essential in all purification and offering, and being associated with the Inundation, to Wesir/Herishef it is highly important, as They are among the many deities chiefly associated with the Inundation.

Dates (medja en bener) are also very well-received, and carry special significance to Wesir. As Sylvie Cauville reports in Offerings to the Gods in Egyptian Temples (pp. 107 - 108), in addition to their high nutritive value and long shelf-life, their value resides in their representing reciprocity in perpetuity (echoing ideas about Wesir and the annual Inundation, and the attendant agricultural cycle) and are traditionally considered to be emanations of His body (and Geb's body, as all produce of the land is). They contain the powers of the Mystery which allowed Wesir's body to overcome death. In offering scenes, such as those from Iunet (Dendera) Temple, the dates themselves aren't shown; they are encased in a small shrine-like container. Personally, I think this has to do with Wesir's body being "secret" and the location of His tomb also "secret" (though you wouldn't think so from ritual dramas like the ones conducted in the area of Henen-nesu during the Wesir Mysteries, haha ;) ). 

Cereals (wheat, barley, corn, etc.) also act as a simulacra of Wesir's body, so those make for ideal offerings to Him as well.

Pomegranates are significant to Wesir-Naref, Who was important in the cult of nearby Henen-nesu (and both He and Herishef were so important that They wound up in later iterations of Amun Theology). Wesir-Naref had a pomegranate tree cult in that area, and conceivably the pomegranate has a similar significance to this Wesir that dates do to Wesir in general. I've offered pomegranate juice to Wesir/Herishef, and so far as I could tell that went over perfectly well. :)

I apologize for the length. :P I hope this helps!

Senebty!
Sedjfai

Hi everyone, it's almost been a year and a half since I last posted here on the Netjer forums. I'm Taysatwesir, sat Wesir as Ptah-Sokar-Wesir, meryt Mut, Ma'ahes, Bast, and Hethert-Sekhmet. I've gone through so many changes in my life this year that I haven't had any time to post here. My brother had a horrible accident, my mother is retiring, I'm learning how to drive, and saving whatever free time I have for gaming and art projects. I'm hoping to get in touch with my Temple family again and maybe start attending chats and other online events.
