Em hotep and welcome back, even if I don’t know you.
^_^ it's ok I live at night and am a bit anti-social so most people don't.
It's nice to meet you though!

Em Hotep,

I have to agree with miss Meres on this one and recommend you join one of our free classes so your can learn how to do things. There is no commitment involved to join so if you find this is not your thing then that's ok.

I personally do some Druidic and Celtic stuff myself at the moment so I am sure there is someone who can help you with the Hellenistic stuff.

Anyways hope to see you soon.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Not eating my offerings?
« on: December 08, 2017, 10:08:21 pm »
This is something I struggle with myself but I find it is better to eat an offering (or atleast a bit of an offering) rather than letting it sit. I see it as an affirmation my own personal status as priest of the Netjeru. That doesn't mean I often do it because I have a lot of misgivings since I also study and practice Fae and Druidic traditions where you should never eat offerings because most of the spirits there are the dead, Sidhe or (in the case of deities) related to the Sidhe. It takes some effort to go "oh this is to my gods and my gods want to share". It is much easier for me to do in my personal practice as I offer time separate from my other workings to the Netjer but my Senut offerings always gave me a misgiving given there is a line where we offer water to our Ahku and every other tradition I follow says to not to partake of the food and drink of the dead.

I think a major factor is what you are able to do from a comfort level and pushing said comfort levels in order to better yourself. Like, if you feel such an extreme discomfort and a dozen red flags all go off at the very thought of eating an offering then I wouldn't as it would interfere with your worship. However, if you just are a bit hesitant you should probably at least try to push yourself and trust in the Netjeru. They would not set you up for failure and They would not ask you to partake of an offering just to slap it out of your hand. They are not that type of gods and They do not ask for that kind of thing from those whom serve them.

Of course, we all have a ways to go and well that's perfectly fine. I know I have a way to go in my journey with the Netjeru and that I hold onto some habits too tight. Whether it be in how I view and hold myself or something as silly as not being able to share a drink of water with my gods. I will take comfort in knowing that I am serving the gods I love to the fullest and I feel we all should do the same.

I am sorry I am late to the party but I am glad to hear your spouse is healing up. I will make sure to add her to my prayers. Also needlepoint is awesome I think I have seen your work (I can't pull it up at work) and it seems very good.
Anyways here's hoping that things go smoothly on the road to recovery. 

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Nut!
« on: September 28, 2017, 10:50:54 pm »
I personally am not one of her devotees but I found her and her husband Geb helped me find a path when I was first starting my path. She was one of the first goddesses I ever talked to and She seemed so easy going and deeply loving. It was a nice comforting way to get into the Kemetic Path. I often look upon the blue sky and think how comforting it is to have her above watching over me. She was also one of the first ones to offer an allusion to family familiarity as a sort of an over-grandmother figure. She really helped me understand that kind of divine love the Netjeru held for me.

She isn't among the ones who is closest to my heart but She and Her husband's constant vigil give great comfort in times of uncertainty and can't thank her enough for helping to lead me to other Names whose love resonate deeper.

Hello again. I am really glad I am not the only person who keeps accidentally falling into the void and such. Anyways I have been apart of the community for only like two years or less and I am looking to try and be more active on the forums. Especially since I have been having a problem lately with isolating myself as a general point. It has been going on for a while and well, it is clearly not a good thing.
It has been an eventful six months or so for me and I am adjusting to for the first time in my life living completely on my own. It is kind of nice not having to share space after living with my roommate for so long and the circumstances that I have had to live with over the past year. This year has not been easy on a spiritual and mental level and I am proud of how well I came out of it considering.
It has left me with a sort of void in my life. Not necessarily a bad thing sort of a thing because it leaves me with a much needed phase of self-discovery and such. I am trying to take a year to figure out what I want to do with my life; especially in terms of career choices. Which has been kind of rough for me. It's weird for me because there is no longer those desperate needs or big problems on either a social, financial or spiritual level. Now all those things have unfolded and the next step is well, to figure out where I want to go from here. Which well is rather terrifying when I stop to think about it.
So anyways that's a little update on my life. I have ever so much missed being on here and seeing what everyone else is up to. I hope to see more from everyone over this year (especially with my new computer).  Please feel free to drop me a line sometime guys.

During an Indy, IN gathering once, we made necklaces where the beads represented the 42 purifications and in the middle was a silver feather.  It is very helpful for contemplating their importance.
That sounds like a neat idea. Would it be appropriate to ask how they were made?

Wow, $500 ring.
^_^ I am glad to see something so over my budget I can just go "oh pretty" and not "Omgersh I should get one/ no I shouldn't get one/ I have other stuff to buy"
Although if anyone wanted to buy me one :3....

It's perfectly normal and can denote several things.
In Western Magick some advance meditations involve holding a shape in your mind of a certain color and not keep it there.

Also that is defintiely Wadjet. Who wants an A/pep statue??
This statue is holding a crook and flail.  Does Wadjet have a form where this would be the case?

After some searching, I don't see anywhere that says she wield a crook and flail ever. Osiris doesn't have a cobra form.. neither does Khonsu. Probably just a HOT MESS of symbolism then.

I'd do more searching, but the index for the epithets isn't working :(

I'll make a public promise.  I'm going to be in Las Vegas from 9-12NOV16.  If I, for some strange reason win over $5,000 gambling, I will buy that massive solar disk statue.
What no Leopard for me?
That will be at the $10,000 tier.
I will hang on my front door.
And call him Ralph.

And what is up with this solar disc?

It's two solar discs for the price of one! :P Recursive solar discs, discs upon discs...
