I am an immigrant. Through the hand and intervention of Sekhmet, I arrived here in the United States ten years ago last week, after a fraught two year personal, emotional, legal and bureaucratic journey in the UK. Nearly four years ago, I became a United States citizen and I celebrated. I still celebrate, and the daily offering by a tall Sekhmet statue is a small token of my gratitude.

And yet, under this administration, I do not feel safe or secure. There is no reason for me to look over my shoulder, but I do - and I am one of the lucky ones.

I am a beginner here, only just about to do my first Senut, yet I will incorporate Piri’s powerful prayer into my practice. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you all on this.

May Ma’at Prevail!

Hello Writer - em hotep and welcome!  :D

I'm also a writer of things. I wrote software and training courses over in the UK. Then I retired and emigrated here to sunny Colorado. That was exactly ten years ago today. Now I write novels.

I haven't been here long myself in the House of Netjer. Be assured, the natives are friendly and the information is good. I thoroughly recommend considering the Beginners' Class, which I recently joined. (The next one may start December-January-ish, who knows?)

Anyway, a warm welcome!

Storm, thanks for the considerate thoughts. But talking with people is a) part of the job and b) something I love.
Understood!

And more welcomes - thank you! You are all helping me feel this is the right place for me to be. :)
And yes, I'm already enjoying the beginners' class. I just hope I don't try my teachers' patience too far!  :D

Welcome to another retiree. I just retired from local government last December from a software developer position.

I am also a child of Hethert-Sekhmet. If you ever want to talk about Them, send me a PM!

That is such a kind and generous offer. Thank you!
I'll try not to interfere with your busy duties here, but I will be sure to take you up on it.  :)

Thank you, all, for a wonderfully warm welcome! I am very much looking forward to the Beginners' Class.

@Neheh - yes that is She! Thank you for those pictures. Here is another. She was a stunning sight gazing through the doorway and down the path at all visitors entering the museum. And thank you for the blessing!

@NeighbourhoodWitch - well I didn't practice both at the same time! And I practice neither now. It was Kuan Yin who brought me to Buddhism. And runes brought me to Heathenry, and my being very active in its reconstruction for thirteen years taught me a lot.

I know I've been fortunate to have trodden a full and varied journey. But with Netjer, it feels like coming home at last. I hope can bring something worthwhile to the community.

[This is a copy of the intro I posted to the Beginners' Class forum, but apparently not everyone can see that, so please excuse if you've read his before!]

Em hotep! My name is Storm, I’m retired and I live in Colorado. I used to work in adult education, and before that in software development. I emigrated from Britain to the United States in 2009 to get married. We have five adult children, mostly in their forties and fifties in the US, UK, and Australia, and five grandchildren in England.

I started my spiritual journey back in the 1970s. I learned to meditate. I trained in healing. I practiced divination, starting with the I Ching but going on to tarot, runes, and many other forms. I remember my first Kemetic interest then was reading Joan Grant’s novels! Later I investigated many religions, practicing Heathenry and Buddhism.

Fifteen years ago, while living in Scotland, I saw a bust of Sekhmet at the Burrell Collection in Glasgow. She made a huge impression on me! Her amazing mix of power and compassion became very real in my life. Last year I got to know Het-Heru really well: she’s wonderful and I’m utterly devoted! I’ve since written two novels in which they both feature.

I'm delighted to be here!

Senebty,
Storm
