[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Little Known Deities...
« on: December 02, 2016, 05:29:38 pm »
I am the only person so far to have been divined with Nehebkau in my RPD lineup, and I've never met anyone else who has a relationship with Him.

That's not too surprising to me, since He is a very quiet and subtle Name, and can be hard to get to know. But He's also such a... relevant god; no other god that I know of is so intimately associated with the concept of the Ka and one's life path and purpose. I hope that in the coming years He attracts more devotees.


I have a relationship with Nehebkau in my Necromancy practice. I agree with your statements regarding Him.

Good to know He's getting some attention from someone other than me! He's really a fascinating figure.

Em hotep, welcome back! I don't think I ever spoke to you directly, but I remember seeing your posts around way back when I was a Beginner. (And as someone who also disappears for months at a time because life, I empathize.)

Oh, okay. You might want to check your email and see if there's something about joining as a Remetj then! You're not listed as one right now.

Ooh, congrats. Great timing, too, with the new year approaching.

21
I'm not an expert on the new year and am still figuring out my own plans, so I won't try to advise on that front--I'm sure you'll hear from some others!

But I do recommend taking the beginners class in future if you want better access to the forums. There are forums here that are restricted to Remetj and Shemsu, and there's a bunch of Wep Ronpet info available on those areas of the site. Becoming a Remetj doesn't require any special commitment to the House or anything, it just means you've taken the class and have decided to stay on as a community member.

I know there is a procedure for decommissioning objects from your shrine. I believe it involves leaving it sitting in sunlight for three days. I'm away from my shrine cabinet right now, but if you have the Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook, I think it's in there. I can grab the details for you later if you don't have access to it!

I'd like to see someone like Serquet or Sekhmet have their year. 

Em hotep Meres!

I love Mom to death, but after this year I'd really like not to have a Serqet year. (Unless I get to get away with all the stuff because I'm one of her kids. *glances at Mom* But knowing her and her expectations of me as her child, it might be extra pointy.) Mom's year would be similar to a Set year because she's all about survival and healing. It's not comfortable survival or healing, but it's necessary in that form.

Sekhmet could be a nice year; I think it would be very healing and very much about appropriate action. Possibly similar to Aset's year. A Sekhmet year would be nice I think.

Note: I don't necessarily think the God of the Year has to do with what happens in the year; more that it denotes the challenges and trials we will face in the year. Which is why while I'd love a year of Serqet, I wouldn't relish those challenges and trials.

Em Hotep, Ra'awyserqet.

I think the opposite. I think that a year of Serqet would be good, without many challenges(maybe have more challenges for us, Her children! We know! ;) ) and a Sekhmet year would be hard. Because of their personality and energy. But... Who knows?!  ;D



I think I'm in the same place as Ra'awy on this one! Serqet is a challenger, much more so than my other Mother; my experience has been that She has high expectations of Her followers. I would expect her year to be anything but relaxing.

More specifically, due to Her role as remover of poisons, I would expect Her year to be one that focuses on the eradication of toxic influences on our lives. It's something I think about a lot, as for the past few years I have definitely been focused on removing toxic people and influences from my life. It's a necessary process, and one that has been hugely beneficial for me in the long term, but it's also painful and upsetting. I'd expect a Serqet year to contain that same duality: beneficial in the long-term, but painful and upsetting in the moment.

People who have different relationships with Her might experience such a year very differently, of course! But knowing the role She tends to play in my life, I would not be expecting Her year to be a serene one for me.

ETA: Actually, while I'm thinking about my Mothers... a Hethert-Nut year would be ideal for me right now, I think. I could use some of that big-picture cosmic energy!

I am not-so-secretly hoping for a Nehebkau year at some point!

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Lions
« on: June 23, 2016, 02:52:47 am »
Honestly, there are so many Netjeru who can take leonine form that it's hard to say without more details! I keep a personal document of animal associations I've found over the course of my research, and the lions section is one of the biggest. Here's some info from those lists--and I'm sure there are many names I am missing.

Netjeru who appear in leonine form (either as full lions/lionesses or as lion-headed): Ahat, Aker, Amun, Amun-Ra, Apedemak, Bast, Behdety, Dedun, Heru-Behdety, Heru-sematawy, Hethert, Ihy, Kherty, Ma'ahes, Ma'at, Mafdet, Mehyt, Menhit, Meretseger, Mestjet, Min, Mut, Nefertem, Nekhbet, Nut, Pakhet, Ra-Heruakhety, Renenutet, Repyt, Ruty, Satet, Sekhmet, Serqet, Shesmetet, Shesmu, Shu, Sia, Tayet, Tefnut, Wadjet, Wekh, Wenut, Yinepu

Netjeru with leonine epithets: Amun, Amun-Ra, Anhur, Apedemak, Aset, Banebdjedet, Bast, Behdety, Heru-Behdety, Hethert, Iryhemesnefer, Ma'ahes, Mehyt, Menhit, Merwer, Meskhenet, Min, Montu-Ra, Mut, Pakhet, Ptah, Ra, Ra-Heruakhety, Sekhmet, Shesmu, Wesir, Yinepu

It looks like Sedjfai has given you some great Djehuty-as-lion resources, as well. Definitely don't limit yourself to just Sekhmet or Ma'ahes; there are lots of lion deities out there!

[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Re: Hi I'm new and want to soak up knowledge!

Hotep and welcome!

By far my favorite books are Red Land, Black Land by Barbara Mertz and Concepts of God in Ancient Egypt: The One and the Many by Erik Hornung. The first is a great primer on all things Egypt. The second is a far more in-depth exploration of Egyptian theology, which might be too heavy for someone just starting out, but it's the book that's been most influential on me personally.

I also recommend books by Richard Wilkinson.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Knowing what the Gods like
« on: June 03, 2016, 01:45:51 pm »
Yep, for me as well, most of that is UPG, as A'aqyt said!

It's also worth noting that people often experience different versions of the same gods. The way Serqet appears to and interacts with me may not be the same way She appears to and interacts with you, and She may ask very different things of each of us. We've had a lot of talks in the House about whether there are actually multiple "versions" of the same deity or whether they're just representing themselves differently for different people (or both), but the main thing we can say for sure is that the Netjeru are very multi-faceted and complex. Other people's experiences definitely do not invalidate yours!

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Hoping for a specific Parent?
« on: May 23, 2016, 10:37:47 am »
Just adding another voice to the chorus here saying this a totally normal feeling to have!

For me, the need for Hethert to be my Mother was very strong early on. She not only brought me to KO, but to religion as a whole (I was a lifelong atheist before), and I had been calling her Mother for a long time! I spent a lot of my time as a Beginner trying to separate myself from that, branching out to contact other Names and build relationships until I realized that I would be okay with whoever turned up. By the time I had my RPD, there were so many Names I had a connection to that any of them would have made me extremely happy if they had shown up in my lineup.

Hethert, in the end, is sort of there and sort of not--Hethert-Nut is very different from "vanilla" Hethert in many ways. Just goes to show that sometimes you get who you're expecting, but in a way you weren't anticipating at all.

Basically what I'm saying is: use your time as a Beginner (and later as Remetj) to branch out, explore, and talk to a lot of Names. In the end, if this is really for you, than whoever shows up in your RPD will end up being "right" in a way I can't really describe.

ETA: Oh, and don't lose hope if your particular deity is totally unprecedented in the RPD. I am the first and so far the only person to have Nehebkau as a Beloved (and I have various opinions as to why, but that's a conversation for another day). It can happen!

I've always felt a somewhat strong connection with Hatshepsut whenever I've read about her, thought about her, etc. But I've never really delved into it, to be honest.

I have social anxiety disorder and had a stutter when I was younger, so I can empathize with the issues you mentioned. Many prayers for boosted self-esteem for you, and for kindness and encouragement from those around you!
