[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Venting and Heka
« on: August 01, 2016, 08:08:00 pm »
I'd have to agree with Shuwyt... the act of the writing can definitely be a form of heka.  If you're worried about how what you actually write may effect/not-effect others, the strikethrough option is an idea, as would be writing those thoughts in some sort of red (ink, text color, etc.)...

Also, also... you could surround the text with ASCII-knives/daggers/swords, something like what these websites have:  http://www.ascii-code.com/ascii-art/weapons/swords.php  -  http://www.asciiworld.com/-Blades-.html

Hotep Tuti, and welcome back! I was just wondering-thinking about you the other day, it's good to see you here again!

Definitely don't feel bad about the life-stuff; life happens, and that's perfectly okay! :)

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Kemetic Calendar Help
« on: June 01, 2016, 12:31:21 pm »
Em hotep!

Members used to receive a monthly calendar of each of the days festivals as correlated to the secular calendar. This has not happened for a little while as Hemet is in the process of finishing up the Daybook. Once that is out, having it will act as a perpetual Kemetic calendar.

In the interim, as stated before Wep Ronpet is celebrated on August 3 for Kemetic Orthodox. The five days previous as the epagomeal days. Additionally, as this is a leap year there is an additional day to account for. That will be July 28th, aka epagomeal day 0 and sacred to Djehuty.
Hemet is actually writing a book on the calendar right now. One of the perks for backing her book on Kickstarter is a yearly PDF calendar with the festivals as calibrated for the temple. She still allows new backers, so if you contact her via email, I'm sure she'll let you know how to do that!

Here's the link to the Kickstarter for the Ancient Egyptian Daybook, which Hemet(AUS) is writing:

And, the book has its own page as well, here:

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / Re: RPDs this week
« on: April 11, 2016, 10:01:36 am »
Mine was $53, but I also double checked on the 2016 RPD information on kemet.org to confirm and it says $53.
::nod:: Thanks for double & triple-checking on the price, Rehen. :)

Actually, I think the RPD is $53 not $70. :)
^^ That could very well be.  It's been a LOONG time since I've had mine.  :)

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / Re: RPDs this week

If I may ask, what is the process of Rite of Parent Divination entail?  Are there costs associated? I saw a post in regards to a member saving up for her RPD.
Em Hotep Uhem,

You'll learn more about the RPD during your Beginner's Course, but mainly the RPD consists of the Nisut(AUS) divining to receive a reading from your Blessed Akhu, and then divining to ask Who your Parent God(s) and Beloved God(s) are.  The RPD is ~US$70, to cover the time and offerings that the Nisut(AUS) makes on your behalf for the divinations.  :)

[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Re: Returning to sniff about after a few years

Hotep and welcome back Coyote!  We were in the same beginner's class, waaay back in 2003-2004.  It's been quite a while! :)

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Disagreements?
« on: March 11, 2016, 10:39:31 am »
Hotep Alex!

No one who takes the Beginner's Course is required to believe every single thing taught in it.  It's an informative course, to teach you what we, as Kemetic Orthodox, believe over all.  Even then, after you graduate from the course, you don't have to believe every single point, to become Remetj.  There are plenty of people here with differing views, and we all still belong to this wonderful community.  That's the lovely thing about having a polyvalent logic: everything that everyone believes is real, because it's our own personal beliefs that matter to each of us.

Now, if you wanted to be Shemsu, you have to agree on a few more points, but Shemsuhood is certainly not required to be a member here.  Nor is Shemsu-ankh-hood, nor is priesthood, nor is anything else.  Each person is here because they love Netjer, and that is pretty much all that is "required" to be a member here (besides common sense, respect, and netiquette).  :)

May he rest in peace and pain-free. Prayers for all those he left behind.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: "Opening" a Shrine
« on: November 06, 2015, 09:56:21 am »
Hotep!

As Kham says, there's no "official" rituals for opening your personal shrine(s).  They're open whenever you want them, and feel them, open. :)

My own, personal opinion?  All faiths/beliefs/whatever... they're the truth for those people that follow them.  And that they are ALL a bunch of made up stories by human beings, created to influence the humans that wanted to believe in them.

Of course, I'm of the mindset that everything is good, so long as each person I interact with in this world believes in *something*, whether it's a God, a scientific theory, pirates, their left shoelace, or whatever.  I also wholeheartedly believe in polyvalency, so my truth can be just as true as anyone else's truth.

« on: October 20, 2015, 05:16:34 pm »
Thank you!
i just don't really understand the merging between them? So are Bast and Mut basically One and share the same aspects in Bast-Mut? Or is She just a complete separate Goddess?
You're quite welcome. :)

As Taji said... Yes.

Bast-Mut, being a syncretized deity, is a wholy seperate deity, yet She definitely has the same aspects as Bast and Mut do seperately.

Also, as Taji said, each person will see each and every deity differently, in their own "light" persay.  For me, I get my Mother as either a melanistic jaguar who's lazing about in the middle of a jungle clearing, or as a Queen sitting on Her Throne, with a leonione face, with the red-and-white crown on Her head.  For me, She's regal, yet playful, definitely the Queen, but a mother who knows when Her children want/need Her love.

Thank you!! This helped a lot :)
Is there any "new" aspect of Bast-Mut apart from the aspects from Bast and Mut?

Yay, you're welcome! :)

For any "new" aspects, I think that really depends on the indivual who's approaching Her, and that person's previous interactions with Bast & Mut.  She may have "new" aspects for you... for example, for me, I didn't notice anything "new," given that I hadn't particularly worked with Bast or Mut as seperate Goddesses before I met Bast-Mut.  (I hope that makes sense, heh.)
