[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / Job Interview Tomorrow
« on: July 28, 2019, 09:03:16 am »
Em hotep, all -henu-

I have a job interview tomorrow for a very fancy position ("Director of Pedagogy" at a Reggio preschool). It sounds like money, which would be great because I'm struggling hard, as well as an interesting way for me to approach my work and apply my knowledge. The only thing is I know very little about the position itself (they said we'd talk about it later), which means I'm going in kind of unsure what to talk about, and I'm not sure I qualify as I only have an Associate's degree and not a Bachelor's. Though they did approach me; I didn't even apply for such a position! This would also be two steps up on the food chain from where I was before my old job demoted me (also twice), so I'll probably die laughing if it works out.

Wish me luck, ya'll. <3

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / For Strength & Success at Work
« on: September 04, 2018, 07:27:07 pm »
Em hotep,

I have a lot of really big changes happening at work right now. These are good things, and I want them to happen, but right now it's so chaotic that it has been extremely difficult to weather. I am so choked by fear I feel I need to just quit on the spot, but obviously this is a very bad plan, and I need to fight back against it.

Please pray for me, if you can.

Love,

Tjemsy



UPDATE: Plot twist!

I quit. Well, I'm quitting. I've drafted my letter of resignation and will be handing it in on Monday. Now I just need to survive another two weeks...no small feat. I can use all the prayers I can get, for that.

I am not happy in this job. In fact, I actively hate it, so I need to go. And fast. Trying to get through the day is excruciating. We made some changes, and things were supposed to get better after the usual storm, but instead they rapidly got worse to the point that this is now unlivable.

I've no idea where I am going and I am still choked by this intense sense of terror. This is unusual for me; I'm rather used to tumult. But I have this intense fear seeping into everything now, and I need to keep fighting it and keep moving, or I'll freeze entirely. I hope wherever I end up is better than where I came from. It probably will be.

May Wepwawet open the way.



UPDATE (again!): I have an interview with a very good job and I am sort of dying thinking about it. I didn't know this place was really hiring, so I'm sort of reeling that they want to talk to me! Prayers that I kick all kinds of butt at the interview? <3

Dua Netjer! May Wepwawet open the way.

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / For the ka of Great Uncle Bernie
« on: June 28, 2018, 07:11:49 am »
Just got word that my Great Uncle has begun his journey West. I didn't really know him, but I remember that he, along with his brothers, used to come by to play pool with my Grandpa. Prayers for the ka of Bernard Nat. May Nebthet comfort his loved ones. <3

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / For My Father (again)
« on: April 25, 2018, 08:00:27 am »
Em hotep, all! -henu- <3

My dad is in the hospital (again). This happens all the time, so I wasn't super worried except that he had a toe infection so bad they had to amputate, anddd if that is still not better, they have to take the foot. :/

Prayers always appreciated.

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / For My Uncle
« on: April 11, 2018, 01:30:27 am »
Hello, all -henu- <3

Just got word that my uncle had a stroke. He's the baby of the family, so everyone is pretty shaken up right now. I may or may not be going up to visit tomorrow, depending.

@_@

Prayers appreciated.

EDIT: My uncle has begun his journey West. If you would pray for his ka, his name is John Andrew Nat. As always, thank you all for your support. <3

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / For My Friend's Mother
« on: January 03, 2018, 11:56:49 am »
Em hotep, all -henu-

My friend's mother is in the hospital with heart problems. This is all happening really fast, and was totally unexpected. They're checking to see if she has any clots in her heart now, and if not, they said they are going to shock it. o.o

This sounds pretty scary and serious, so I'm a bit worried about my friend. :( Prayers for her and her mom would be much loved and appreciated. <3

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / Family Crisis: for my Stepbrother
« on: December 15, 2017, 10:13:12 am »
tw: suicidal ideation

Spoiler: show
Hotep, all. -henu- <3

Just heard my stepbrother has been missing since Wednesday. There was a suicide note. We're not close. I met him once, can't even remember his name. But having been there, it hits a chord. I can't imagine what my stepdad and his family are going through. He has a wife and a young daughter who is 6, I think. I do at least remember her name (lovely child, made quite the impression). And being that my life's work is in Early Childhood Education, I know how hard it can be for young ones to go through this. Can't imagine what they're feeling right now.

Prayers for him, for his wife and young daughter, Kaiya, and for all his friends and loved ones.

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / For the ka of Great Aunts Kate & Dorothy
« on: December 05, 2017, 03:04:50 pm »
Em hotep, all -henu-

Just got word that my Great Aunt Kate (Catherine "Kate" [Hrab] Zurla) passed on this morning. I haven't had contact with her in many years, but she used to live next door to my grandma, when I was a child. I'd go over sometimes and visit her, and I remember.

Prayers for her ka as she journeys to the West.

Thank you. <3

EDIT: I heard that my Great Aunt Dorothy (Dorothy [Hrab] Granahan) also passed away on this same day. I've never met her, but I'll add her to my Akhu pile when the time comes, and so, I shall ask for prayers. ^^;

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / For Victory Against Depression
« on: October 13, 2017, 08:30:02 am »
I am not so good at asking for help, so my apologies while I fumble through this. ^^;

I am not doing so well. I have had a creeping influx of random sadness over the last few weeks, which seems to have compounded in Total System Shutdown. I had an appointment last Friday for a medication consult, where they accidentally prescribed me something we discontinued (I have tried a lot of things...), so that ended up being wasted time. This "shutdown" has been getting steadily worse, and getting through this week was terrible. Every day is harder to push through. Yesterday was so bad that I was thinking of asking to leave work early, and then worrying I would not be able to make it home. So, please, pray for Tjemsy, if you can. I'm pretty desperate right now.

The last time that this happened, it was so severe that I lost all functioning for a long period of time. I couldn't work...or do anything. I do not want to end up there, again. There is no danger to me in this time, it is only my body refusing to do anything, but I could easily lose my job, if I can't work. And that would be very bad. On the bright side, I've never caught it like this before, so there is hope.

I have another med appointment in...very soon, less than an hour. I hope whatever they give me is good and effective and fast-acting. Thank goodness it's Friday, and that my morning shift has been cancelled. I will probably still have to power through the afternoon shift, and I anticipate great difficulty. But after that, I can not care for a time.

-sigh-

« on: September 14, 2017, 10:30:48 am »
Yesterday morning, my Great-Uncle Tom began his journey to the afterlife. May his ka be justified, and may Nebthet comfort his loved ones.

If someone could send me the 70 Day Prayers, it would be much appreciated. Thanks very much. <3

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / For my Grandfather & Great-Uncle (Update, again)
« on: September 12, 2017, 06:23:03 pm »
So my Grandfather and Great-Uncle were both rushed to the hospital yesterday. Grandpa has a bad blood infection and pneumonia. I'm told he almost didn't make it through the night, and they were going to send him to hospice, but he's doing better for now. Nekhtet for that. My Great-Uncle I don't have any other word on right now.

Prayers always appreciated. <3

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / More Car Problems
« on: July 13, 2017, 06:35:53 pm »
Em hotep, all

My car has been totaled. This is annoying in itself, but I cannot take off any time whatsoever from work, which makes replacement-car-getting rather rough. And I need a replacement title, which is going to knock me back quite a bit time-wise. So. It's a bit tense, right now.

Tjemsy will get through this, but prayers for stuff not getting any more difficult would be appreciated. x_x

We're getting closer to Wep Ronpet! Last year, there were a lot of guesses for Wesir & Set, and some guesses for Set this year.  Do you have any guesses for the God(s) of the Year?

My guess is Heru-sa-Aset*. It seems like we have a "fighting oppression" thing going on right now. Other possibilities include
  • Heru-sa-Aset & Set
  • Wesir & Set
  • Any combination of my Parents
  • Nefertem*
  • Sobek-Ra*

* = At some point, I have acquired imagery of these Gods this year. Last year, I got a Khonsu. "What am I going to do with this?" Said I. I'd be amused if this ended up being a thing.

I'm not opposed to the possibility of a Set year right now, because I really, really want him to show up in Saq. So I can hug him. <3

So, Hemet & I just finished up a Beloved divination, and Nebthet has officially joined my lineup! Nekhtet! I'm so happy! <3

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Aspects of the Names
« on: November 24, 2015, 12:50:45 pm »
I'm kind of failing at precision here, so uh, I apologize if this makes no sense. :D

How do you experience the Names? Do any of their epithets really resonate with you (or seem unusual)?  Did you perceive a Name to be a certain way before you started working with them, and how does that compare to what you have experienced?


(This is long. I talk a lot.)


My Sekhmet is hard for me to describe. I was originally afraid of her, what with the whole tried-to-slaughter-humanity thing. I was sure she was going to be very aggressive, all vanquishing evil and slaying her enemies and whatnot. Since then, I've really warmed up to her. I think she can be motherly, and protective, but I don't feel her much. She's...complex. XD

My Set is best described by what he is not. He is not a trickster; he is extremely purposeful and action-oriented. Not to say that he doesn't have a sense of humor (he does), but he is not playful. He doesn't like to waste time. He is more human-like than he is primal, and he doesn't create chaos for chaos' sake. He's a boundary-pusher and a button-pusher, and the party has not started until he arrives. He's loud and gives the impression that he's always performing. He also feels...tired. He tends not to go the tough love route with me, actually, and he generally knows my limits. Generally. I think he has some problems understanding things like Food and Bills. My favourite epithets for him are Great of Strength and Lord of Storms.

My Heru-Wer...I can't really feel him right now. You say Heru-Wer, I say "Justice? Law? Truth? Protection of those who cannot protect themselves?" Idk, it's The Set Show over here.

My Bast is Joy.

My Wepwawet is very solidly Wepwawet-as-Opener, Wepwawet-as-Guide. I originally perceived him as very tied to the Duat and Psychopomp-ing, but I don't see that side of him at all. I tend to be pretty focused on the Seen, you see. I get a bit of "He of Sweet Joy," from him as well. He's laid back and compassionate, and has a good sense of humor. As such, I have trouble envisioning Wepwawet in his more aggressive forms. He is "Renegades" by X Ambassadors. Super much.

My Taweret is...the song "Baby Mine" from Dumbo. I'm still figuring her out.

My Nebthet is "The Good Sister." (I just thought of that last night! :D Yes, I'm still on the Nebthet wagon.) I'm interested in her interactions with the other NTR, specifially during The Contendings and surrounding the death of Wesir. I think she is Devotion, supporting people when they are grieving or experiencing emotional suffering. I originally perceived her as a solely death/Duat-related deity, but aside from Akhu, she doesn't really show that side to me. I just get comfort and compassion. I think she would be a good hospice nurse or grief counselor, if that makes any sense. I realize that "The Good Sister" & Generally No Duat Stuff sounds kind of Tasenetnofret-y, but I'm still pretty insistent on Nebthet being Nebthet.

My Sobek is very primordial, all swimming in the Nun. I was expecting something along the lines of Powerful, Proud Crocodile Sunbathing and Looking Smug, Lord of the Waters, so this took me totally off-guard. He feels alien, very strongly "Not of This World." Never felt anything like that. Scary. I think I get Sobek-as-Creator.

My Aset is Aset-as-Queen, Great of Heka-and-everything. We...don't get along.  She gives off an overwhelming air of power and regality, and demands to be treated accordingly. Full henu all the way. I have...personal issues with that. I don't even do full henu for Set. As such, I get the sense she thinks I'm insolent, and entirely too forgiving of the whole Set-killing-her-husband-and-fighting-with-her-son-thing.
