Prayers for a completely successful diffusing of this bomb. May no one be harmed, and may everything pass over quietly without incident.

Em hotep is an ancient Egyptian phase literally meaning "in peace". It is used as a greeting and is often shortened to 'Hotep'.

A shemsu is a formal convert to Kemetic Orthodoxy. For more information on this, I recommend looking through the forums, reading materials at Kemet.org, and utilizing the forum search option.

This is hardly a UPG, but I've developed a but of a rapport with Amun-Min. I've gotten the suggestion that anything stiff and upright would qualify as 'suitable' though not ideal. The image that comes to mind is a stone feather (often used as a table centerpiece). It's stiff and upright like Min, and has Amun's father imagery. Again, though perhaps not ideal, that might be suitable.

Prayers for your pup, and prayers for you. My dog Mordekai had been suffering from chronic soft stools and intermittent diarrhea for a long time and our vet is doing her damnedest to find out why. To think some people just ignore their pets issues drives me crazy. If you're not willing to properly care for your pet, don't get one. I've dropped half a months income on my dog for all his tests, but it's worth it to me to make sure he's well. May everything turn out well, and may you be able to afford all the fees without difficulty.

Hotep family and friends!

As many of you are aware, my dog Mordekai has been having recurrent digestive issues. I've noticed other shemsu and remetj have been having similar pet health issues. I was wondering what you all have been doing to help your pets (aside from vet visits, of course). The Netjeru have kindly reminded me that I can use heka to aid both in discovering the underlying cause of illness and in recovery for my pet.

 Here's where I turn to you. Which Gods have you been working with on this? At a Sekhmet healing ceremony one year at retreat, Sekhmet advised me to go to my Father Yinepu. Are there any other Names you might recommend?

In the realm of heka, I have considered a few avenues:

1. A healing tag for Mordekai's collar
2. A heka charm on his crate for healing rest
3. Infusing his drinking water with healing heka

Thoughts or suggestions? I expect this might be useful for many folks here. Thanks.

As a fellow furry, I'm saddened to hear that he has gone West. May he be remembered by his friends and family always, and may the furry community cherish the memories they have of him.

May Netjer be with you as you process such a sudden loss. *hugs and scritches*

I don't have much to contribute here, but I don't think a*pep is personified or connected to those feelings in question. For example, one may be lonely because their loved one died. Is that loneliness inherently evil? I would say no. Maybe someone is happy because they got ice cream. Is that happiness inherently ma'at? I would say 'not necessarily'. These feelings might lead to actions or words that are ma'at or isfet, but I'm not sure they're the result of either a God or the uncreated.

Also, as a side note, you might notice that no one is capitalizing it's name, and many are not writing it out. The ancients believed that names held power, and Kemetics often refuse to speak it's name outright so that it cannot gain power. It's kind of like Voldemort. I, personally, only say it's name if I'm ritually cursing it.

Cool! Thank you so much for sharing that!

Hi Raine. I'm Taryt. I like pie, but I'll go crazy for lemon bars so those are my weakness. I have a big ol' German Shepherd named Mordekai and a little bitty medium hair tortie calico kitty named Keiko. There's a lot more to know about me, but I hope you stick around to find out :)

Welcome to the House of Netjer!

Hi Abigail. This is a fairly common occurrence, actually, but not with any specific Netjeru. For me, I have a fear of Netjeru who are very powerful and figures of authority (which, incidentally, doesn't include all Netjeru who fit this description). For the longest time, I was perfectly fine with Ra, Wesir, and Ptah, but Amun and Aset scared the living daylights out of me. I discovered that there was something intensely authoritative about Them to me, and that was the seat of my fear--I was terrified of offending Them and invoking Their wrath. The first of Them to seek me out, though, was Amun. When I attended my first Kemetic Orthodox retreat, I got something from Amun that told me to seek Him out. After first talking with Amun-Ra (Whom I was more comfortable with, I moved on to Mut, then Amunet, then eventually spoke directly to Amun. Through the dedicated attempts of making friends with Him and by giving Him regular offerings, We have come to good terms between us. Similarly, when Aset's year came around, I first went to Her sons, Yinepu (my father) and Her-sa-Aset about my fear of Her. Eventually, though I still definitely keep my space, I am at a point where I am comfortable enough with Her to talk to Her about things. It takes time, dedication, and offerings, but you can get there if you desire to.

On that note, I'm still terrified of Nit. I'll get to working with Her eventually but something about Her raw primordial power is just scary to me. I think that might be the seat of your fear. I work with Sobek on occasion, and He definitely has an intensely animal side sometimes. He's a croc, waiting in the depths of the dangerous river, ready to snap and pull in His prey. However, a croc who is full is not going to attack. In fact, the croc might even sit still and sun himself on the riverbank. Perhaps, if you offer to Him, even just little things such as cool water and bread, He might be 'fed' enough to be more placid around you.

Just my 2 cents. Good luck!

I would like to add to Zat's list here with the Wag Festival that occurs in late August. The Wag Festival celebrates the akhu/ancestors.

Welcome back MeshautSekhmet! I don't believe we have met, but I would love to get to know you. It makes me very happy to see shemsu return to the House. *welcome-back-hugs*

UPDATE TO EVERYONE: To clarify, this is not "my cause". I'm not doing anything. I'm not building things. I'm really not involved in any way outside of spreading information about this. There is another man/group of people whom I have never met who are doing this, and it just so happens to be on the website gofundme.

Still, I believe in this cause and encourage you all to help support it.

Hi everyone,

I came across this today on facebook, and I think you need to see it. I support animal shelters, food pantries, and an orphanage, but my biggest focus is on helping the homeless. This could be any one of us at any point in time. They're all people, worthy of respect and dignity, but often they are looked over or even feared. Despite the stereotypes, most of these people just want a safe, dry place to sleep, somewhere to keep what little they have, a place to call home. This project, though small, can have a huge impact. Please, if you can, help rebuild the lives of those who need it most. Take a moment, if anything, to read about what this project is doing, and maybe say a prayer that they get all the funds they need.
