I’m looking for a Fedw diviner for Set. I could really use some perspective. First of all, I have a mental illness and I tend to hear inner voices. I’ve been hearing Set’s voice lately and I would like to know if I’m really hearing him.

I started off by worshipping Sekhmet, Thoth, and Nut. It seemed like someone was missing so I started worshipping Set too. At first he just seemed unreachable. I would try to connect with him but he was just too far removed. I tried following a daily ritual schedule but I didn’t practice for weeks. This culminated in a dream I had about Set on one of the days designated for him. Then things began to escalate. I started focusing on him exclusively and then I started hearing “his” voice. He was very hard to ignore and was making (bad) sexual jokes. Naturally this has caused me problems as the other voices now try to pose as him to say something hurtful to me. It’s all so confusing at times and sometimes I just want to stop practicing. Any advice would be helpful.

Thank you for responding, Senytmenu. I’m considering moving out to better suit my schedule and sleeping pattern but I just want to help my parents get a nice house first. The future may seem uncertain but I’m ready to face it.

My shrine is finally at the point where I'm happy to share it.

The two small boxes are low-smoke frankincense and sandalwood Japanese incense, and the gold-and-white feather is an incense holder. The white lotus is a candle holder, and I use locally made beeswax tealights or votives. The off-white tray is a handmade clay sushi dish from Thailand, and I use it to present my offerings. The four white tea cups and matching tea pot are for cool water during the Senut.

On top of the puja table (made without dedication to the Hindu pantheon) are my AGI statues for my mother Aset, and my beloveds Tefnut and Heru. Though the AGI for Tefnut is a Sekhmet icon, it radiates Her energy. All three statues were specifically requested by the Names that they're being used to represent. Finally, the gold-painted wood carving at Aset's feet is my Shemsu name in hieroglyphs, a wonderful and unexpected Moomas present from Sesaiaset. ♥

I really love your altar, it radiates peace and serenity. I just get this feeling of something very holy and ancient. The mixture of white and gold was such a good choice. Thank you for sharing.

My favorite story is Sekhmet as the Eye of Ra who becomes insatiable in her bloodlust.

Welcome Malka! I've faced adversity during my spiritual path too. I hope your Kemetic path becomes the light that shines through the darkness. I'm extremely fond of Sekhmet as well. :)

I recently purchased a Sekhmet pendant and an ankh pendant and I didn't think of wearing them until I found this topic. I'm going to be wearing them as often as I can now. My job prevents me from wearing jewelry. Here is a picture of me wearing the pendants:!AtIWbyvZGzIkp1YtX7AVg0B3SJh0.

Welcome Siofra_Imrae! It sounds like you have a lot of life experience. Wishing you the best on your journey!

having to hide your faith sucks, but, unfortunately, it is something many of us have had to do.

I have not had to hide it from my family, but I have had to downplay it.  I have gotten good at 'stealth godding'.

I have had to hide my faith from my community, due to the nature of my work and the conservatism of my area.  I have become more open in recent years about stating that I am not Christian, but not so open that I often talk about what my faith is.

If you are independent financially and emotionally, then I advise you to do as you wish in regards to practicing your spirituality.  However, doing as you wish doesn't mean you have to be 'in your face' about it with your parents.  Choose times when you have the house to yourself to do any formal rituals.  Confine your formal practices to your own personal space. 

Find some stealthier ways to keep your religious symbols with you.  For example, I have a lovely silver snowflake necklace with black gems that I have dedicated to Nebt-het.  I wear it in the winter months.  I know what it stands for, but everyone else just sees a pretty necklace.  Make a portable travel shrine, and keep it in your car.  Go to the local park with your shrine if you feel the need to do ritual, and you can't find private time at home.

As I said, it sucks to have to do these things, but being in constant battle with your family is not good either.  The Gods understand and are patient.  As long as you honor Them in your heart, and stay as true to Ma'at as you are able, I don't believe They will want you to endanger your familial relationships on their behalf.

Blessings on your journey wherever it takes you.  Remember that this journey through life belongs to you, and you alone.  You can honor and respect your parents, but you must live YOUR best life.  <3
I love the term "stealth godding", that's exactly what I'm doing now. :D ;D So far no one has asked any questions about my statues. I intend to expand my Egyptian theme so that the statues blend in even more.

I'm in the process of working on times to perform rituals. It's a little tricky since sometimes my family are night owls.

That is a good idea about the jewelry. I recently purchased a Sekhmet pendant and an ankh pendant that I can wear regularly. I did make a Sekhmet box that I could probably use as a travel shrine too.

Thank you for reminding me that this journey is mine alone. :) It gets hard to separate my thoughts and be an individual at times.
