I have some experience with Nun, another of the Ogdoad, and ThothIsWise is correct in my experience--They are more like primordial forces than "personalities," which makes them a little bit different from other Names. They feel ancient and infinite in a way that is not so obvious with the other Names, and it can be hard to "get to know" Them for that reason. I would suggest keeping all of these things in mind.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Cats on Altars / Shrines ?
« on: May 26, 2014, 02:26:15 pm »
For what it's worth, I keep our cats off my "casual" shrine area too. I have always had the feeling that Netjer wanted me to do so, probably at least partially because of my allergies--keeping the cats off means my shrine can be a place for me to focus and reflect instead of getting itchy and sneezy. I never got the feeling that They particularly minded if the cats ended up getting up there by accident, as long as I employed measures to discourage them as much as possible.

I think Netjer understands that sometimes the cat is gonna do what the cat is gonna do. You can try your best to keep her off of it but I wouldn't worry TOO much? If that makes sense.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Views on Abortion

For what it's worth, we do know that the Ancient Egyptians induced abortions, so as a whole we can probably assume that they didn't have too much of a problem with it. There were also known contraceptives.

Well, I know Amunet is usually paired with Amun or even seen as Amun's female form, so a lot of the information on Him could probably be said to apply to both of them.

Q: Which of the four classical elements is your favorite/do you identify yourself with?

A: I had a really traumatic experience with a dentist when I was a kid (very, very bad dentist who I never went to see again, won't go into detail other than that). Even 15-20 years later, I am pretty wary of them, so I have to make sure to find a place I like whenever I change locations. As long as I do that I'm fine.

Q: Have you ever broken any bones?

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Interested in becoming Kemetic

Hotep ThankSet,

Have you looked into possibly taking the beginners class? You'd get the answers to these questions (and more) there, and it's probably the best way to get more information on the religion before you commit to anything.

Here are my short-ish answers to some of your questions, though. Keep in mind that I'm just a beginner myself, however!

Different deities respond to different people in different ways. Yes, They will really interact with you. How obvious it is, well, that's between Them and you.

Kemetic Orthodoxy is obviously an African-based religion, but race is a non-issue in terms of membership.

There are many creation stories, and the exact creator deities and methods of creation vary between them. We hold them all to be simultaneously true, which is a concept that a priest might be able to better explain than I can.

Hope that helps at least a little!

A game of some sort, I'd imagine (DnD jokes aside). Another option might be divination.

I'm so sorry to hear about your pregnancy difficulties. Everyone else has pretty much covered the recommendations I was going to make, but I hope it's alright if I also pray to Hethert for you.

Good luck to you and your unborn child(ren).

Oh yeah, absolutely; thank you Tanebet for the quick response! No rush or anything, I just wanted to make sure nothing was wrong on my end.

I responded several days ago but I haven't gotten anything back... do I need to respond again?

Maen, thank you so much for clearing up some of those questions regarding priestesses! I had only been skimming this thread, but your post was so fascinating I had to stop and read the whole thing. Cool stuff.

I haven't received anything, and my spam folder seems to be clear, so I just resent it.

That person was incorrect. Very very few humans were deified in antiquity, and that's not part of the mythology of most of the more well-known Names at all.

It sounds like that person might've been sharing their UPG (unverified personal gnosis--personal experience, basically) as if it were fact, which is something of a no-no in most communities I know of. There are a few deities, though, for whom that would directed contradict all known mythology. Tem/Atum, for instance, created himself directly out of Nun before creation (and therefore, one presumes, before the existence of humankind).

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Isfet and abuse
« on: February 07, 2014, 11:39:48 pm »
I second the recommendation for Hethert. I was abused by my biological mother, and she came into my life as a spiritual mother when I needed one the most. Because of that, even if she turns out not to be my Mother in RPD terms, I will always see her as my mother. She's like this deep ocean of patience and warmth--no matter what trials you are going through and what mistakes you make along the way, you can never exhaust her capacity for love, because it literally goes on forever.

Please be safe and take care of yourself however you can. I strongly, strongly believe that you are never contributing to Isfet by experiencing emotional hardship--rather, by working to restore balance to your life, you are acting in service of Ma'at.
