[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: How does Bast appear to you?

Bast isn't in my lineup, but I get the sense that She hangs out with my two Fathers.

(Khesret, I've had the sense that She likes to hang out with Set too! How funny.)

I get a lot of Mom when Set visits with His thunderstorms... but that might be because I love thunderstorms and they make me happy (until they decide to start throwing tornadoes around). ;)

So what's the deal? :)

I get Mama Bast-Mut as a large, most-of-the-time lounging black panther. Yes, She can (and has on more than one occasion) roar and panther-pounce, but most of the time She's just way too relaxed to do much but watch with Her golden eyes. :)

Quote from: Seshagemseger
Does anyone actually get "kitten Bast", or is that kind of a misunderstanding, or even a game or ruse?

Hmm. This is a good question... I was going to joke that the Seshat kid figured out our secret, but it's partially true I think. I think, for me at least, it's both a game and a misunderstanding; we all have the kitten in us unconsciously, though most of the time it's hiding. It can come out when we're "playing" with others or it can come out when we need to defend ourselves. However, it is also a bit of a misunderstanding, perpetuated by some of Her children (myself included) who mweow up a storm and have taken to "acting" like cats (beyond the mweowing) as a normal thing.

... I happen to think other people could potentially do the same thing through similar (or different) divination means, but I'm not here to undermine the faith or Rev. Siuda,

this leads me to ask:  is it generally understood and accepted here that Rev. Siuda IS the only one who can divine Parents and Beloveds, either within the faith or outside of it?  She is the only one Netjer has consented to let that knowledge come through?
...
i wanted to add: i am not trying to undermine the faith or Rev. Siuda either; i just want to understand this point with perfect clarity.  :)


Within the Kemetic Orthodox faith/mindset, the reason why the RPD is only performed by Rev. Siuda is because during the RPD, Rev. Siuda accepts the person as Her student (and child, in a way) if the person having the RPD vows to be a Shemsu. If other people were to perform the RPD, Rev. Siuda would not be able to accept thoe being RPD'd by other people as Her students/children.

(Weshem-Ib, aka the Shemsu-Ankh ordeal, is when those Shemsu who take it accept/confirm Rev. Siuda as their Mother back.)

So, here's my next question.
When one becomes Remetj and possibly a Shemsu,
is there a law against worshiping other Gods outside the names of Netjer as found in Kemet?

Or, for that matter after one is divined can one still have loyalty to these Gods and Goddesses out of the Kemetic pantheon?

To add on to what everyone has said, no there is no Kemetic Orthodox law against worshiping other Gods outside those of Kemet.

However! This outside worship can be influenced by your relationship with your Kemetic Gods & Goddesses. There may be times (and I have no idea if there are people currently with this going on) where your Kemetic Gods say you can(not) worship "outside" Gods if you want to take on certain roles in the community. For example, one person may wish to be a priest... and to do so, their Parent(s) may say that the person can only worship the Parent(s). (I have no idea if that made sense or not; if it didn't let me know and I can try to explain differently.)

Huh?? Where is all this joy that everyone keeps speaking of?? :P

Hehe. It was a year ago (2007) that Bast gave us the original 10 Days of Joy.

I would love to have this be an annual (or even bi-annual) thing though... 10 Days of Joy, at least once a year: I think quite a few of us could handle this! :grin:

Your shrine is just as beautiful as ever Meza. I'm jealous of those cobra sconces. ;) (If only I had money enough to create my perfect shrine room... *sigh*)

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / Re: RPD
« on: December 23, 2008, 11:33:04 am »
Hotep plantman,

I had my RPD online (via AIM), and even though I was not "in person" with Hemet(AUS) at Tawy House, it was still quite profound.

I've been lucky enough to attend both of the RPD-Live weekends (March 2007 & 2008), and watching each RPD candidate (that allowed people to watch) get their RPD results was just amazing. During the live RPD's, since Hemet(AUS) is doing so many at once, She breaks the two-step RPD up into two stages.... doing the first part of the RPD (the Akhu divination-reading) for everyone who is having an RPD done first, and then starting back at the top for the Parent/Beloved divination for each person. Each person (at each point) has full say on who gets to be in the shrine room during these divinations: both weekends we had people who were willing to have everyone watch, and people who only wanted no one or certain people to watch. It really is all up to the RPD candidate and how comfortable they feel with others watching such an intense (and most of the time, very private) ceremony.

Hemet(AUS) does (online/simulcast) RPD's on an on-going basis, mostly... depending on how busy the Temple is with other things, and Hemet(AUS)'s health. RPD-Live weekends, however, have only been once a year, so far... and I don't know if there are plans (yet) for an RPD-Live weekend this year (March is still a few months away).

I would have to agree with what others have said here, though... while being excited to find out Who your Parents & Beloveds are is a good thing, being too excited can be a hindrance at times. Keep your mind and heart open to Netjer, and don't worry about the little things currently. (The Beginner's Class takes between three and four months, and there's usually some administrative time both between classes and between graduation from your class and when you actually have your RPD.)

I recently just went through the beginner's class and then had my RPD. My father is Djehuty, and I am beloved by Wepwawet-Yinepu, and Ptah. I'm new to this and still learning so I want to make sure I do it right. Do I make a separate shrine for each one individually (3 shrines) or just one for all three collectively?

Hotep Vinnie! *henu*

Nekhtet on your RPD!

As others have said here, your shrine setup will be very dependent on how much space you have available, how much money you have to spend on shrine space, and most especially, how your Gods want your shrine(s) to be.

To add my (and Zaer, my husband) shrine space out there as an example, we have one Senut shrine with our Mother (Bast-Mut... we're very lucky to share Her as our sole Parent)middle-center, and each of our Beloveds on either side of Her. Zaer has his Beloveds on the left side and I have my Beloved on the right. This setup has worked just fine for us, with very little to no complaint (only thing we've really had was someOne telling us how to face Their statue, turned this way or that). I also maintain a State (W'ab) Shrine, but this is very separate from our Senut shrine.

Here's one website that makes and sells their own: http://www.butsudan.com/


Those are very, very beautiful... but they don't look very deep. From the images on the website, it doesn't look like the *inside* of the butsudan's have a footprint of more then a few inches. (Which, I'm sure, probably works perfectly for the Buddhists' they're in the market for.)

Hotep Sopdet!

Another Bast(-Mut) child with Amun-Ra as a Beloved. :)

I'm also still working out my understanding of what our relationship is... I think I know why He's my Beloved, and every now and then I get a clue-by-four that that's all I actually need to know.

For me, He comes both as a cooling breeze on a warm, sunny Spring or Fall day, and as the shining sun on a cold winter day (not the light, the sun bringing the light).

And you know, just as I was writing that, I got the following both in my head, and in my fingers: "I am the Sun, your Mother is the Light." Interesting how He always brings us back to our Mother. :)

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Your Shemsu Name and You
« on: March 15, 2007, 09:52:05 am »
Hotep!

Very cool idea!  :)

Quote
1.) What is your Shemsu name and meaning?
2.) What is your RPD lineup?
3.) How long have you been named, and how long did you wait before being named?
4.) Are there any interesting puns in your name that you have heard of? Please share them if you're willing to.
5.) Did you try to figure out what your name would be before you got it? If so, were you close?
6.) Did you use any Kemetic names before you got your Shemsu name? If so, what were they and what did they mean?


1. Tuwerherbastmut - "Show Respect to Bast-Mut."
2. Daughter of Bast-Mut, Beloved of Amun-Ra
3. I was named February 25th, 2004, so I guess that means I've had my name for a little over 3 years.  I got named a week after I had my RPD (I knew I was going to have my RPD and Naming very close to each other and soon after I graduated from my Beginner's Class).
4. One pun, that I can remember (though, I remember hearing another... just not what it was): "To be great to Bast-Mut."
(In addition to the "To be great to Bast-Mut", Wer(et) is also used to mean to be "great", in a prince(ss) fashion... since I'm a Shemsu-Ankh, it makes sense in a way.)
5. No and no.  I hadn't a clue what it could've been, and I wouldn't have been close if I had tried.  ;)
6. Nope.  :)
