[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / Re: Prayers for my kitty's health

Keiko is improving now that's she's been taking medicine. She's still not back to normal volumes, but she's urinating more than she was yesterday. Here's to hoping her improvement continues.

Keiko is home but heavily medicated. Her doctor's asked us to observe her for 72 hours, and she wants us to check in again with her tomorrow. All three medications make her drowsy, so the poor girl has been asleep most of the day since she's been home.

My sweet Keiko is at the vet right now for some urinary issue. They are confident that it is probably not a urinary obstruction, but they think it may be kidney stones. She's currently in line to get an x-ray done. Prayers to Bast and Yinepu-Wepwawet that they may find what her ailment is and may they treat her and cure her. Prayers also that the fees to do so will be minimal.

Em hotep! I have never experienced this before! I can, however, offer a small bit of advice in the way of home cleansing. I had an uncomfortable presence in my house as well. It never made itself known to me directly, but certain areas of the house had a "creepy" feel to them. One night I decided to purify my home, so I did something like this. It was all done spontaneously, so I don't remember word for word what I said at the time, but if I were to do it again it would be something like the following:

After senut, I made a fresh batch of purified natron water, using the words from the rite of senut. I spoke my intention into the water. I don't remember what I said exactly, but it was something like: "All isfet is driven away by the purity of the Netjeru. My natron repels evil and casts it out." I went through my house, sprinkling every corner, floor, wall, and anything in between with a very light flick of natron water. I went through every single room, including closets and the laundry room.

I repeated the same thing again, but with a candle. I spoke my intention to the flame, something like: "The Light of the Eye of Ra burns evil. The Eye sees all isfet here, and She destroys it. It is burned into nothingness. No isfet can withstand Her power, and no spirit dares block Her path." I took the candle through every room as before.

The third time around, I lit some sandalwood incense, and I spoke my intention to the smoke, something like: "The Breath of Netjer purifies everything it touches. Its sweet perfume leaves restless spirits at peace. O Amun, Ever Present One, may Your Divine Presence sanctify this space." (I associate Amun with incense smoke, and He is a very powerful Name to call upon, so He felt appropriate here). I went through my house from top to bottom once again.

The last step was to cleanse via sound. I don't remember who I called upon for this one, but I think it may have been Hethert to bring joy and comfort to my home. I took a bell and rang it loudly in every part of my house, singing a song whilst doing so.

I don't remember how I closed this out, but I feel that a final prayer of protection from Gods you are close to would be appropriate.

I hope this helps!

Hello all. I've discovered that one of the reasons I [unfortunately] neglect my akhu shrine is that I'm seemingly afraid of death.  I know most people are afraid of dying, but I'm talking about being afraid of discussing death, dying, and the like. I imagine that must sound odd coming from the daughter of the Chief of the Embalming Tent, Yinepu.

Many of the members here who know me know that there have been a lot of sudden and unfortunate deaths in my family. I also had to face the possibility that my husband might die in surgery (he did not, thankfully, and has recovered). After all this, I've found the topic of death and losing someone almost panic inducing,  despite knowing that we all will one day travel West.

I've decided to read and meditate on the Book of Coming Forth by Day (book of the dead) in the hopes that it might make death a little less terrifying. I plan on writing out a section, then writing a journal piece on it. My question for you all on this: in my writing/journaling, would it be appropriate to change the text to modernize it since I'm contemplating my own this on death, or would it be more appropriate to read it in its absolute original context? Thanks!

As with many things here in KO, we tend to use polyvalent logic when it comes to matters concerning the Gods; that is, all of the myths can all be true at the same time. This is much more reasonable when you consider that we don't take myths literally.

Personally, I've always considered Nebt-het his mother, Wesir his Father, and Set his indirect father (that is, the husband of His mother). Still, the impression my Father Yinepu has given me is "I'm so inconceivably ancient that it doesn't matter either way. What difference would it really make to you?" which just reminds me that parentage and heredity are honestly very human concepts to begin with.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Not eating my offerings?
« on: December 07, 2017, 06:19:38 pm »
I agree with Kham here. To me, it's kind of like making someone a birthday cake, letting them blow out the candles, giving them a slice of the cake, and then tossing the cake in the trash. We are celebrating the Gods, but we are also celebrating with the Gods. I would not purposely offer anything that then got wasted or left to sit in a landfill for eternity (trash often doesn't break down due to the lack of oxygen). While, again, there are cultures where divine offerings should not be touched or consumed, I recall that it was disrespectful in antiquity to take an offering that was given to the Gods and not consume it. If you don't want to revert the offerings, that is your call. Still, I know my Gods would be displeased at wasting the sustenance They had returned to me. As far as They are concerned (at least what I've learned in my 8 years of bonding with Them), They are happy that they get the "choice piece(s)" of whatever I offer Them--They take the essence of the offering, whatever the *best* part of it is, and leave the remainder for me.

And as for Yinepu, He'd be disappointed in me if I didn't enjoy the offering with him

Thank you for sharing! It was a joy to watch Therm enjoy the sights with you :)

There actually is a guided meditation that Hemet (AUS) does every year at retreat, but I do not know if it is open and available for use outside of that event. I will check with her though. If it's available for anyone to use, I'll see if I can share it here. Otherwise, I can offer insight into what I try to do once I get back to my computer (currently posting from my phone)
