[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Tefnut Syncretization?

This is a very interesting thread for me.  I am newly divined beloved of Hethert-Sekhmet and Tefnut.  Right after my RPD I had two thoughts 1. I don't know much about Tefnut and 2.I wanted to dedicate swimming to Tefnut.  I used to love swimming, and have been doing it on and off maybe once a month for a while. But now I promised to swim a minimum of once (and preferably twice) a week, and think of Tefnut as I do so.   

 I've thought of Tefnut as I swam.  I eventually had the thought (while actively swimming),  'Tefnut is not the water itself, I never feel her when i get in the water like i thought i would.  but rather,  she is the bubbles I create while swimming and she is my breathing every few strokes. That is what she feels like to me now (my first time feeling her). 

After reading Sat_Maat's post just now, I had another thought,  Ironically, today while swimming i noticed the dryness in my throat/mouth after taking a few breaths.   Fire is associated with dryness/arid.  The longer you swim, the more you breath, eventually  your mouth starts to get dry. I think if you think of her as the air bubbles and breath, that can attest to Tefnut's ability to synchronize with Sekhmet. Not the body of water, but the pockets of air in it (moisture/humidity), but also the dryness created in your mouth as you swim (fire/arid/sekhmet). Not sure if this answers your question, but I'm super happy I found this post.

Senebty,
Imaibi
