Hello, all! I've been trying to figure out my lineup (i.e. who are they, how do they relate to me) for a bit now. I'm solid on Set, Sekhmet, Bast, and Wepwawet; I have a good understanding of Set and Wpwt's "personalities," in particular, and upon reflection, I can identify the influence of these four all the way back to early childhood. Heru-Wer and Taweret are more difficult. I think Sekhmet's fierce mothering might be overshadowing Taweret, so I'm having trouble getting a read on her. Heru-Wer is pretty much a big question mark; I get the sense that he might have something to do with my "morality," but beyond that, I'm not feeling him at all. Since this is an intuitive process, I don't think that simply pouring over lists of their epithets is the way to go about achieving understanding. Maybe just chatting with other members about these two will help? ^^;

How do you experience Heru-Wer/Taweret? What kind of "personality" do they seem to have? Is there anything specific that Heru-Wer/Taweret work with you on (if that's not too personal, of course)?

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Nebthet Says "Hello!"
« on: August 12, 2015, 06:35:39 pm »
Hello, all! I've had Nebthet on the brain lately. Dunno if this is because she has a procession, like, now, or because I'm a Set-kid (any Set kids work with Nebthet?), or what, but I am looking for information of all kinds! Unfortunately, she seems to be kind of tricky to find information about; most of what I've read of her has been the same thing over and over. No new information, not a lot of depth. I've read the Prayerbook's entry on her (and the whole book, hehe), her Henadology page, her section on both Kemet.org and Wpwt Wiki, and a bit from Geraldine Pinch's "Egyptian Mythology."

I am, in particular, looking for information about Nebthet as
  • Mistress of the House: this epithet is everywhere, but is never really explained. Does Nebthet seem to have a role as a "household goddess?" If so, in what way?
  • Having literally anything even remotely to do with fate.
  • Connected to the Akhu? My Akhu are very important to me, but I am absolutely petrified of the unfamiliar dead. In this sense, I'm totally spooked that I'm thinking about Nebthet, who is associated with dead people. ;.;
  • "The Revealer?"
  • An Eye of Ra? I've seen her described as a Eye, but her reserved personality makes processing this confusing for me. Didn't she have a lunar association? I'm terribly confused...

Reasons I'm kind of hiding under my bed on this one:
  • I'm really, seriously petrified of the unfamiliar dead.
  • A lot of my family has been having serious health problems. Is this a bad sign? D:
  • The NTR I work with all kind of make up "who I am." Nebthet is very often associated with mourning. I am really hoping I am not meant to be associated with mourning. ;__;

Halp, guiz. Hallppp. D:

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / Late-Appearing Beloveds?
« on: August 10, 2015, 07:23:25 pm »
Hello! I am looking for information on Beloveds who are divined after one's initial RPD. I know virtually nothing about this topic, so feel free to just Wall of Text me. Hehe. Some particular questions I have are below.

Questions for those who had Beloveds show up after their initial RPD (if they're not too personal):
  • When did you get the sense you might have had a(n) additional Beloved(s)? How long was this after your RPD?
  • When you received your additional Beloved(s), did you guess who they would be? Were you right?
  • Has anyone received a second Beloved divination, but found out they don't have one? What I'm really trying to find out with these last two questions in particular is, is the divination approached in a way that is "Is _____ a Beloved for this person?" or does one essentially get a re-RPD which?
  • In what circumstances are additional Beloved divinations given (i.e. do you need to meet a certain criteria)?
  • Has anyone received more than one Beloved divination (after the RPD)?

[PUBLIC] Prayer Requests / Pre-RPD Weirdness
« on: July 09, 2015, 09:22:55 pm »
So, I just got an e-mail asking me to pick a date for my RPD. I'm excited, but I feel like nothing I've said or done since I read that e-mail has made any sense. Poor Hemet. I sent her like 3 e-mails. First, I picked the dates but forgot to specify the method. Then, I remembered one of the dates I sent didn't work, because I have a staff meeting at that time, silly me. Then, I thought that because these dates are quite soon, maybe I should have tagged my response as "urgent." Even though it didn't say whether to tag it or not. So I sent it AGAIN and tagged it as urgent. Poor Hemet. ;__;

Sigh.

When ya'll did your RPD, were you this much of a mess? XD I feel like I should crawl in a hole. And hide. Forever. ;____;

EDIT: AND! I put this in the prayer request forum! Why? I don't know! This is what I'm talking about, people! Make it stop! ;__;

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / RPD - Payment
« on: June 27, 2015, 09:05:22 pm »
Hello, all!

I'm (attempting) to send in my RPD questionnaire! I'm sending my payment via Paypal, and I'm not sure what "option" I should select. If you click "Send & Request" on the top bar, it gives you the options "Pay for goods and services" or "Send money to friends and family." Which one of these do I choose?

Thank you for your assistance. <3

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Incense?
« on: July 13, 2014, 10:24:35 am »
Em Hotep all,

I was thinking of burning some incense for the NTR. Does anyone know of any scents that were used in antiquity, as far as offerings go? Is there anything I should specifically stay away from, on that front, such as scents that were thought to be unappealing (Fishy smells? Not that that's usually incense, but you know.)?

On a separate note, does anyone use incense for purification purposes, and are there any historically-attested scents for that?

[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Introductions
« on: April 27, 2014, 09:19:12 am »
Hello, all. I'm Meg, pleased to meet you. I am a 24-year-old with an Associate's in Early Childhood Education. Trying really hard to get my Bachelor's, but alas, money is the thing there. Hopefully I will go back to school in the fall!

I applied to the Beginner's Class 'round the very start of April but haven't had a reply back yet. I know the Nisut has been away until recently, though, so I'm not sure if I should resend or just sit tight. -headtilt- I'm very excited for the classes!

I originally started researching Kemeticism because my then-partner expressed an interest in working with Anpu. I knew pretty literally nothing about Kemeticism or the NTR or Egypt - honestly, I was always way more into Greek Mythology. Religion can be a really big thing, though, and I didn't want that to cause a divide between us because I didn't know anything about it. Eventually, I found myself way more interested in Kemeticism than anything. It just sort of clicked with me. Not knowing anything about Egypt or anything and having a strong interest in Greek Mythology, I got to the point where I was stubbornly -forcing- myself to read more about Hellenism when I really wanted to read about Kemeticism. Then I got "How long are you going to pretend you're not Kemetic?"

Enter Set. Well, not really. He's been around before then, but that was my major "a-ha" moment, I guess. I suppose I'm a somewhat unexpected Setian, what with my name being "rainbowrosepetals" and my tone being "Yaaayy, Kemeticism! -throws glitter-" and all. I've had an exceptionally rough life. I've been the only rational person in a never-ending swarm of incredibly toxic and abusive people for...always. I consider myself to be some kind of "corruption magnet," and when things get especially terrible, like if I end up completely in over my head, everything (metaphorically, thankfully) goes up in flames and I'm forced to go somewhere else. -blinks- Yeah. Set makes sense to me. I like him quite a lot.

Well, that was a lot longer than I thought it would be. So um, yeah. Hi. -waves-
