Never played it, but can you tell me a bit more about it perhaps? What type of game is it, and what do you do in the game?

*claps for Ankhet* That was a wonderful response XD I couldn't have said it even half as well, lol.

makes me want to sculpt a cobra to stick near my door to ward off anyone who tries to mess with me XD "The cobra is watching you! Better be nice!"

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Covering?
« on: October 30, 2012, 04:01:45 pm »
In reading through the first two pages of this thread (unfortunately I can't read all 4 due to time constraints), I would like to add in this idea: perhaps some people cover out of a desire to be more disciplined. Although some cover themselves out of modesty, others may do so to prevent themselves from being overly vain or critical about their own appearance.

I feel like my Father would be okay with it if I covered but isn't trying to encourage or discourage me from doing it. I don't really think that it's something for me, but I understand why people do it. I know a lot of Pagans who cover as a means of devotion to their Gods. Others do so as a means of protection--the covering is a physical medium through which metaphysical protection is manifested. I'm not sure if that accounts for much in KO, but it's another perspective to consider.

Yeah. Honestly, it's really about the fact that we're only really supposed to do senut once a day (to be honest, I'd rather keep it that way lol). There are times, however, that I do really want to pray, and I feel so much more comfortable praying in front of my shrine. I keep my shrine in my closet (its a big closet, and the shrine has its own half of the closet for itself), so to keep it covered would mean that I would have to keep the door closed. I suppose I could do that, but it seems a bit less welcoming that way I guess.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Shrines and Purity
« on: August 29, 2012, 04:15:30 pm »
Quick question: I know that we have to purify for senut, but is it necessary to purify every time we go to the shrine? For example, if I just wanted to light a candle and pray at my shrine without going through the full senut rite, do I have to purify first? Will I end up "dirtying" my shrine if I don't purify for that?

Here are pictures of my Wep Ronpet shrine!

  Full shrine (sans chips lol)

And then I realized I forgot the sweet potato chips...

  So here they are XD  

The RPD is $54. I know this because I just had mine done a few months ago, lol. I joined KO on the first day of 2009, and didn't even join the beginner's class until early 2011. After that, I didn't get my RPD done until this past May. Why? I didn't feel like I was ready yet. Take some time to stop and think about what RPD is and why you want it. If the reason you want it is "because you're curious" or "because you want to know who your parents are", consider the responsibility inherent in knowing this information. If you know who your parents are, wouldn't you feel the need to honor them more?

There's a lot more to RPD than just a forum signature. Just make sure you're truly ready for this sort of commitment; and if you are, then best of luck to you :)

I'm Heru-wer's "Little mongoose." o_O

You kills teh serpents! :O They's bad!

I usually get my feelings as impulses and less as words, although this is something I might ask my Father about. I often have trouble finding words to explain the way I feel, but I suppose my Father knows this and cuts out the words and just goes straight to the feelings. I kinda get the feeling though that He would say something like "Well, you work better with feelings than with words, so I never really thought a name was needed. My relationship with you feels sorta like *this*" [insert interesting feeling here].

So I guess I'd say my pet name is "Warm-Hugs-and-Calm-Silence" with a hint of protective energies thrown in.

So I guess, essentially then, we should expect a relationship with our lineup Names, but not necessarily an equal relationship.

Personally, I get my Father Yinepu-Wepwawet nearly equally strong (here I almost wrote Wepwawet-Yinepu. They're both really close to me and really immanent in my life). I also have a connection to Sekhmet-Hethert and Djehuty. The difference between these two, however, is that Djehuty is more up-close and personal, really interested in what I'm doing and what projects I'm working on. Sekhmet-Hethert does spring up from time to time, and I feel like she's around me a lot, but she generally watches me from a distance (like a lioness stalking her prey, without trying to kill me of course XD). She's ready to pounce in and help me when I need it, but I kind of feel like she's only really in my space when I need her to be.

TL;DR: Sometimes modern kinship terms don't translate as well for the relationships we have with our Gods. What is important is that these relationships are there and we have Their support :)

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / 70 days of mourning
« on: October 09, 2011, 09:42:12 pm »
My uncle Jack just passed into the Beautiful West a little over an hour ago. I want to observe the 70 days of mourning, but I don't know much about it. I've looked through the forums, but there isn't a whole lot on the subject. I was wondering if perhaps anyone would be able to point me in the right direction, either to a book, or a website, or even someone knowledgeable on the subject. I didn't want to bother Hemet(AUS) without first going to the forums, so I'm hoping this might help a little. Thanks.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Questions about Senut
« on: October 04, 2011, 11:54:24 pm »
I have a few questions I've been meaning to ask.

1.) How can you tell if you've got 10 grains of natron? What constitutes a grain? I first felt like I was using too much, but now I feel like I'm using too little.

2.) If you're under high amounts of stress, should you or should you not perform senut? As many members are aware, my uncle is dying, and I'm very torn up about it. In addition, I'm stressed out from school and financial things. I want to keep doing senut, and I know I'm supposed to every day, but I can't tell if I'm not wanting to or if They would rather me pray instead of full senut.

3.) I have a roommate who is very curious about the senut rite. I remember that the beginners lessons say that they are intended only for the original recipient, so I haven't shown her directly (we've just talked about it). Is it okay for me to share the words to the rite? She's interested in going through the beginner's course just to see what KO is about (she's genuinely curious but isn't really sure that KO is right for her), but I know the beginner's class just kinda started. What should I do about this situation?

Any and all help is loved. Thanks :D
