My apologies! I’m on mobile, but I didn’t see a “tag” that showed Allison’s status in the house like when we have other members. I can weirdly see yours and others’ though?

Technology is strange!

Apologies and Senebty,
Emhat

Em hotep, Allison!

The RPD is available as a paid service to those who have taken and passed the Beginner’s course, and accepted the position of Remetj, after a period of six months. At the end of your course, you will be given further instruction on how to find everything you need on the members’ side of things. :D

Hope this helps, and good luck with your journey.

Senebty,
Emhat

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Netjer and good dreams?
« on: June 16, 2019, 10:58:24 am »
Em hotep!

As someone that deals with chronic nightmares, I can empathize with this. Historically, homes with children would appeal to Bes for relief of nightmares, but I have also found success in praying to Yinepu as well. Though, and this is purely my experience, there are times where He will aid me in facing the reason of why I'm having those nightmares, so a bit of healing as well... and while painful, has never steered me wrong and I feel better for it. :D

There are also some forms of heka you might be able to do, or magic if that is up your alley.

I hope you find some relief, sleeping peacefully is a necessity.

Senebty,
Emhat

Welcome to the HoN! What a colorful job and hobby you have! I hope you have a good time exploring KO, and potentially deepening your relationship with Sekhmet and other Netjeru. 💛

Welcome to the House, I hope you find what you’re looking for here!

As a child of Set and Beloved of Djehuty, I’m always up for talking about Them, if you’d like to PM me.

Senebty,

Em hotep, Hunefer!

Most certainly, the Netjeru do not need statues in order for us to worship them. One of the things that I find most fascinating in my own connection with Them is feeling Them in the world that we live in, through people or nature itself (Nature and Netjer- both words have a very similar ring to them! ;) ). If you believe the Netjeru are present, as They are, the statues are never necessary.

Statues, as kept in shrines, are more of a focus for some to direct prayer to. Some people are more visual, and that helps direct that energy. Alternatively, the statue can be had as an item to honor the Netjer in question, to contribute Their imagery to a space or function within a space. The only time to my knowledge that a Netjer is said to "live" within a statue is an open statue, which the State icons of priests fall under.

I hope this helps, and I love hearing the sentiment of worship and connection to Netjer coming directly from the heart, again and again. <3

I do not disagree, with you. :) as someone with a chosen name beyond my own that is used amongst the Shemsu of the Kemetic Orthodoxy, I understand the importance of your own, chosen name.
I say this merely to illuminate that perhaps giving these kind folks the benefit of the doubt, that it was not done with disrespect, may be appropriate. There’s a lot of misspellings of other names here, as well. When my name got changed after I became a Shemsu, it was actually misspelled as well! However, it was just an accident, and the moderator fixed it accordingly. No harm meant.

You’re no less important than anyone else, here. But at the end of the day, we are all still human and susceptible to error. 💛 That is all.

Erm, if I might comment, I'd like to say that I double checked your name, but aside from that... your name isn't commonly spelled that way for most folk, so there are chances it might have been "auto-corrected" for those on mobile, or misunderstood. I don't think that this happened with any ill intent. :)

Ii-wy em hotep, Lukas! Welcome to the HoN forums. :)

I hope you find all you need, here, and if you ever want to talk about my Father, Ra, feel free to PM me. I love to chat about Him and learn more, so perhaps we can together!

Rev Sobeq, thank you for keeping us posted on this info. Also- I’m not sure who handles it- but I think the addition of the PayPal giving fund button on the front page is excellent. It’s a lot more accessible, now, and a nice reminder. :)

Looking forward to a more prosperous month for the Temple. 💛

Em hotep, Sundust!

What a lovely quote, and welcome to the community. I hope you find something that echoes the same love that you put into your introduction.

May the Netjeru bless you with illumination and fellowship.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Theodicy - The problem of evil
« on: March 26, 2019, 08:17:41 am »
Ooh, another great topic! I hope you don’t mind if I contribute some additional thoughts, dear Neheh. :3

In Kemeticism, we can attribute “evil” or ill will in the form of the /s/n/a/k/e, the Uncreated, or the broader definition of “isfet.” Commonly such things are the subject of execrations, which can be likened to things such as banishments in other practices.

As for the Netjeru being purely good or bad, the idea of Their “alignments” are much more complex than “X Name is good and pure” or “X Name is bad and nasty.” For explainations on this, I like to refer to my Father, Set, Who does things that are scary, even violent at times... but overall He is a champion of Ma’at like the other Gods.

The idea of preventing harm to innocents is another very complex topic in my experience. There are times They can, and will intervene- I have had such experiences, even. Otherwise, there may be lessons to be found in such events or, because They are not omnipotent, unable to prevent everything. There is a thread somewhere where I believe that this is discussed, and that things such as illness may be regarded as a form of isfet, but it can be one that is not self made- IE you aren’t a bad person if you get sick, sickness just “is.”

Netjer does what Netjer can. But They are also selective in what will be an appropriate influence, and limited in Their displays of influence, despite being much, much grander than our own. ;)

Senebty,
Emhat

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Question regarding Predestination
« on: March 26, 2019, 06:58:03 am »
Em hotep, Hunefer- and goodness, I reread which board this was on like 12 times, and I'm pretty sure I'm not accidentally posting in AtN during the morning hours, again. :p

I think that first and foremost, the thing to note is that our Gods, as great and wonderful as They are, are not omnipotent beings in the sense that some other figures of divinity may posses, such as the power to see all, know all, at any point in time. Personally, this is one of the things that appealed to me concerning Kemeticism, as the idea of a truly omnipotent god just didn't jive with me, personally (which isn't to say it's a negative for those that do!).

Veering into a bit of UPG (Unverified Personal Gnosis) territory, I think that we always have our freedoms. Do I believe that Netjer can guide us and influence our lives? Unmistakably, yes. Do I think that They know what we are going to do in the future? Perhaps. I'd like to think that as humans, we are a bit younger and easier to read for Them to make some very specific "big picture" educated guesses about the things that we will do and how we will grow, but overall we retain our free will- think about how that very same will is put on the scale before Judgement in the Hall. :D If They kinda controlled everything that we do, I don't think that such a thing would be necessary.

I hope this helps and gives a little food for thought. c: Very fascinating topic to think on and start the day!

Senebty,
Emhat
